One of the places that I often heard alot which is this Andes BYO Pork Burger that located in Aman Suria, and finally, me and my friend decided to pay a visit as actually we were on the way back from Penang and since its on the way then just drop by. There are alot of bloggers are talking about this place and makes me wonder how good is the pork burger actually.

Well, its not so hard to find it actually which its located the same row as Betty’s Midwest Kitchen/ Kayu Nasi Kandar as its on the other side of it only.

Andes (1)

Ample of parking space you can find around the area, as it is a bit more quiet on this side. Therefore you do not have to worry that much even if it rains, that its just a few steps away from the nearest shop lot.

Andes (2)

On Sunday night, this place is a bit quiet as there are a few tables occupied.

Andes (3)

Love the setting of the outlet as its a bit more towards old English interior with red brick wall, old wooden tables and chairs.

Andes (4)

Food price in Andes BYO Pork Burger seems to be very reasonable and I am so keen on their pork range available.

Andes (5)

So what we order is this Porky Pork Grill @ RM 17.90. Looks like it had been perfectly grill with their own marinated sauce and turns out to be juicy and taste perfectly good. My friend is enjoying every bite of his pork. By dipping with the gravy along is very individual preference, either you find it spoil the taste or makes it better. For me, I prefer just to dine it original . .:)

Andes (6)

Aussie Bacon Burger Wrap @ RM15.90 is their signature pork burger and when I was serve in front of me, I am a bit surprise to see the thick and round the patty is is being serve. Smells good as their signature burger being serve along with bacon, coleslaw and fries.

Andes (7)

The patty is good, that able to maintain its juiciness of it and after cutting it, I can just see the cheeze oozing out from the patty. Indeed it was home made by the size and well mince that I get to enjoy mouthful bites from it and the problem for me is a bit hard to grab hold and need to open my mouth to the widest to get full bite of it. 😀

Pretty good for a pork burger being serve in this area, to make another visit back to this place, I would not hesitate as the price are very reasonable. One of the set back that I read from other bloggers that the QC in here are not consistent. Thank god that I had this meal in pretty good taste!

If you are hunting for Pork Dishes around PJ area, certainly would be one of the shop to look out for.

Road trip for food is definitely fun, especially when you go with a bunch of all hungry eaters that are responsible to eat and pay only, as on the way up north to Penang, we decided to do a little food hunt in Ipoh for early breakfast at Foh San (富山), and I have dine before at Ming Court Dim Sum which is quite disappointing  . .This round, we all agree to try out the famous Foh San Dim Sum which I heard so much over other bloggers or they rate it as best dim sum in Ipoh.

fu san (1)

We reach around 11am and there are still strong crowd inside the restaurant, with many people waiting for tables, as I have heard that strong crowd will pour into this outlet as early as 7am-9am which is the  most peak. .

fu san (2)

They used to operate in a smaller building as their business boom that had attracted many people from near and far, this is the new restaurant outlook which had expanded to 2 times bigger compare to their old outlet according to my friend.

fu san (3)

Modern tea house with nice floor titles, wooden chairs and marble and wooden tables are all well place around the restaurant. Now in order to get tables for pax of 10 person, all of us spread out equally into 4 sections, 2 at the bottom left and right and upper floor left and right. It really depends on your observation and luck to get a table, as you have to monitor your table closely with other public customer around too. . .

fu san (4)

If you come at 11am, quite a number of items are sold out, which is some of their signature item . .  will come back again for next round . .

fu san (5)

As all hungry eaters are ready to hunt for food and this plate I do not know what’s the name, its like a pao and sprinkle with pork floss, taste a bit dry and not my choice of item . .

fu san (6)

‘Malaikou’ is one of the best I had so far, super soft and spongy, and great in aroma . . have to eat it while its hot.

fu san (7)

Water-chestnut cake a bit more like jelly and slices water chestnut inside is fresh and something to eat after your hearty dim sum meal as closing ..

fu san (8)

 

fu san (9)

A simple delight that must not miss is Siew Mai, Har Kau then followed by some corn pork dim sum . .

fu san (10)

Pai Kuat

fu san (11)

Chicken Feet

fu san (12)

 

fu san (13)

 Lai Ngau Pau – is pronounce something like that, which is a must eat item! this was the last piece I manage to get as the pork meat melts in your mouth and the gravy inside is just nice to make it perfect! highly Recommended. . .

fu san (14)

fu san (15)

Loh Mai Kai

fu san (16)

fu san (17)

Porridge is also one of their signature which is also a must have item to try, as the texture of it silky smooth, mild in taste and just add a bit of soy sauce is just perfect. Highly recommended

fu san (18)

Fried loh pak kou, not many restaurant can fried this evenly and nice, as this restaurant is exceptional that fried till some edges are a bit crispy, not too big piece and got wok hei . .

fu san (19)

fu san (23)

Their Egg Tart turns out to be impressive too, crispy side soft egg yolk spread in the middle. .

fu san (24)

By the end of the day, we were all very satisfied with this meal as we rate this one of the best Dim Sum so far we have come across, fresh, and not only that, the most important is their price which turns out to be pretty cheap, as we paid only around RM18 per pax for alot of dish!

Now only I understand why so many people flock to this restaurant, even I did a road trip down to Ipoh just to eat this dum sum and they like it, and ask when shall we drive down again. No doubt that this is one of my recommended Dim Sum place if you do pass by Ipoh.

It has been quite a while since I last step into Pavilion and I have read a few blog post that new restaurant opened on the 6th floor which looks pretty cool with its concept. Then few days ago, whereby, I came down to meet up my friend which had been quite long time since I last met her. Then I suggested this place Market Hall and she said not a bad place.

[UPdated Jan 2012: No longer in operations]

market hall (1)

I like their restaurant concept, which is similar to one of my favorite seafood restaurant when I was in Melbourne in Crown Casino.

market hall (2)

Right at the entrance they do sell other items more on Italian range and also some bottle drinks ..

market hall (3)

I like their concept with its simple contemporary rustic style, that place wooden tables and chairs, using chalkboard on the wall to draw what is the specials of the day.

market hall (4)

market hall (5)

market hall (6)

A very huge open concept kitchen and you will be amaze to see how many chefs and assistant are in there.

market hall (7)

Their pasta are made fresh daily or would say, when we place order then only they will prepare it ..

market hall (8)

Not only that, you get to choose the seafood too . .

market hall (9)

in the chiller, the desert looks tempting too . .

market hall (10)

market hall (11)

In the menu, they do offer more on the Italian side, with Risotto, pasta, pizza and others. . .

market hall (12)

Then comes by this complementary bread stick with salsa sauce I guess and its nice, soft loaf that prepare fresh and warm then dip with the salsa sauce is just perfect. Eat it while its warm.

market hall (13)

Then in the menu found this dish to be very unique ‘Tagliatelle – Fresh Salmon tossed in Vodka, citrus zest, and mascarpone cream sauce @ RM 32.90. For the price of this and the amount of small chunks of salmon in there is very generous, which I can say that every bite will filled with salmon. I love the taste of it , which is a bit sourish of the olive, and the sauce just coat on the tagliatelle which is fresh made. I love it .. – Recommended~

market hall (14)

Now days, I am hook with anything that state with blue cheeze ..  although not many people can accept the taste but if it is done well, the taste is super nice. Then I try out Market Burger Spicy Mayo, caramelise Onion, Bleu Cheeze @ RM 22.90

When it was served, my friend she kept laughing cuz it looks like baby’s diapers been wrap up and ready to throw away . .I was like ‘Oi..that’s my food ler’ . . . .

market hall (15)

I love this burger how it was done compare to other restaurant by using fluffy buns, and this the made it more like focassia bread that been toast on both side till the top is crisp’s and the butter just soak into the bun welly. The beef patty is home made by judging its compact meat and was cook medium well to my liking. The juicy sauce combines well with the taste with the burger doesnt make it too dry and the bleu cheeze was stuff in the middle of the burger that very mild in taste and make the aroma stood up and combines well. I enjoy this burger very much . .- Recommended~

market hall (16)

Then only I realise that the side entrance I used to see alot people queing up on weekend is a bar behind the restaurant which is called the Bedroom, more on foreign style too which I rate a bit of opera decor on the ceiling with comfy leather sofa and huge dance space.. I will sure come and check it out one weekend. .

I am quite satisfied with the food quality that they served in Market Hall and the service is not bad too, or I guess it was just weekdays whereby only a few dining tables were occupied. Anyway, I will return to try out their desert as I was full on that night. If you are looking for nice ambiance to hang out with friends, its a Recommended place by me ..

One of the local delights that I keep bugging my friend to bring me is one of their favourite shop that serve super spicy food which I did not know until I have tasted it. Taliwang Bersaudara

Taliwang (1)

The restaurant deco feels a bit modernise kampung style with wooden walls. . . .

Taliwang (2)

as most of the people here eating with hands with more towards their culture and did not really switch on fan also . .

Taliwang (3)

Bamboo partition, ceiling deco and chairs with wooden tables  .. . .

Taliwang (4)

The price of food is prett reasonable . . . .

Taliwang (5)

One of the must order dish is this ‘Ayam Palecing Taliwang’ well grill and spread with their own home made chili, definately will bring you to the edge of sweat and get your tongue to get numb, the taste of chicken is good, well marinated and the meat is soft. .

Taliwang (6)

Then  my friend told us that, if not enough spicy can add on spicy as she order another place of ‘Sambal Ayam’ which is not my league. . . I surrender. .

Taliwang (7)

Then to blend the spiciness flavor, my friend help us order ‘fried duck salty egg’ for us to add on and surprisingly the taste turns out to be good, saltiness and the spiciness just blends in and goes along well with rice.

Taliwang (8)

Pelacing Kangkung, added on with bean sprout is another spicy dish and the spicy level is mild and by this round I had already finish 2 bottle of Teh Bottol . .

Taliwang (9)

Among all level of spiciness, this is the most kick ass, by second small bite, my sweat and tears just flow out and this is by far one of the most spicy food I have come across, SUPER SPICY yet  the spiciness is a bit addictive as it is very fragrant with a bit grill taste from the chicken, just by this 2 bite I finish another bottle of Teh Bottol. .

 

Taliwang (11)

By the end of the meal I had total of 5 bottles of drinks, which I did not even finish my rice and other dishes that it was too spicy to handle and eat till my lips also ‘chong’ like sausage already. The other 2 person was like, hah? Spicy kah uncle? I told them you guys are not human, eating chili like licking ice cream . .

Well, to those who really love spicy food, this is one of the Bandung local food that you must visit . .

The name itself that makes me even more delighted to try out this shop. It is one of the new shop that had entered the busy little area of Kota Damansara. Rogers Delight is one of the shop that offer Nyonya Cuisine and a bit of own cook home recipe with the chef had more than 30 years of experience in US and being a person had retired and came back to Malaysia not that long, he still have the strong passion in cooking, inherite cooking from parents and preparing good food for people, that is where the new shop is born.

Rogers Delight (1)

The shop is just located a few shops away from Snowflakes.

Rogers Delight (2)

The dining area is definately very cosy with bright yellow orangy lights, filled with wooden tables and chairs.

Rogers Delight (3)

To get your heads off for the day to make your face squirk a bit, try out their ‘Sour Plum Drink (kat chai suen mui)’ RM 5 for such a big glass and we find it worth the price with the thick blend of sour plum in it.

Rogers Delight (4)

The very first dish was served ‘Lady finger with shrimp paste’ the aroma seriously caught our attention, with the paste had been fried till abit dry n very aromatic.  RM8 (S)  RM15 (B)

Rogers Delight (5)

Their signature dish ‘Special Curry Duck with Yam’ is best to order 2-3 hours before the meal to get the best out of it, as the duck will be slowly cook in this claypot along with the curry to ensure the softness and tenderness of the meat blend well with the yam.  RM18 (S)  RM40 (B)

Rogers Delight (6)

‘Curry Fish Head’ a dish that goes very well with rice, watery curry base with mild spiciness.  RM28

Rogers Delight (7)

Sweet & Sour Seafood with Pineapple  @ RM20 (S)  RM50 (B)

Rogers Delight (8)

Rogers Delight (9)

One of the dish that caught my attention too is ‘Pan fried prawn with assam’  it taste like laksa soup had been fried along with it till its dry. Taste awesome, with fresh prawns added in, as I like the asam taste a bit strong, get the gravy a bit to eat with rice, is good. RM20 (S)  RM65 (B)

Rogers Delight (10)

One of my favourite for the night which is not in the menu, consider it ‘Special homemade Taufu’, the gravy is thick in flavour very nice till me and Esther keep spooning on the gravy to drink. Recommended~

Rogers Delight (11)

Star of the night for curry range is  ‘Coconut Curry Prawn’, with curry cook till its a bit dry gravy and thick then pour inside the coconut to make it thick and aroma absorb into the curry.

Rogers Delight (12)

‘Coconut Curry Prawn’RM20 (S)  RM65 (B) Recommended~

Rogers Delight (13)

”Salted egg crab” is a bit more salty if you eat it just like that, but I sure do not mind licking all the side with the welll coated salted egg on the shell.  (market price)

Rogers Delight (14)

(贵妃豆腐) RM15,

One of the shop in the area worth to try . . ..  If you want to order something special do call Roger . ..

Let’s start off on what I eat for dinner on the 5th day as we did some travelling around and last place to visit was this area called Wufenpu which is actually a shopping paradise for ladies. Farmosa Chang 鬍鬚張 (Hu Xu Zhang) Seriously please bring a lot of cash to this area, credit card machines in the shop are kinda hard to find.

farmosa

We were shopping till hungry and we were introduce to this shop located across the street Farmosa Chang which is a restaurant more similar like a fast food chain that their food are serve pretty instantly. It is now become one of the franchise restaurant booming up in Taiwan and slowly penetrating oversea market.

farmosa (2)

The place is decorated with wooden tables, wooden plaque of menu, marble flooring that makes the place simple and nice.

farmosa (3)

Me having a hard time to decide what to eat cuz the menu is in chinese and I only can look at the pictures point and point.
