Year 2013

Browsing

Kicking off year 2013 with a meaningful start by starting to do charity with McD. Was given the opportunity to stand right in their operating kitchen to help out and also to make the customer waiting longer with our inexperience yet challenging to work in the Kitchen to serve the waiting customer. The charity event took place at McD Kota Damansara on 19th and 20th January 2013 to raise proceeds for more than 60 local charity homes.

McD (1)

WE are here early before the lunch crowd on the weekend. . .

McD (2)

The banners are all posted in all McD outlet accross Malaysia on that weekend.

McD (3)

One unique thing about this outlet is that, this McD have McCafe in it. When I was in Australia, McCafe is all available in most of the McD outlet and in Malaysia is only on selected outlet at the moment as they have plans to expand it further to more outlets soon.

McD (4)

Coffee and cakes are available. .

Coffee in McCafe are pretty decent as price are reasonable too.

McD (8)

We were firstly brief by the outlet manager on the procedure of the whole kitchen operation, on how the counter punching in and to which burger line that will start preparing the burger first. This remind me of a game Burger Rush or something like that that every burger creation are in order.

McD (9)

They event have mini flipcharts for staff that are new in the kitchen to get easy understanding.

McD (10)

I just love their sauce can that located on top. Every click is the right amount of sauce being put onto.

McD (11)

Then comes to the beef patty griller. Look at those juicy yummy slices that been take out from the pan . .

McD (12)

Kitchen operating crew is very effective as every one know where their bay is and their job scope to make it efficient. We were told that to get the whole process from burger right to waiting customer the whole experience should be less than 3 minutes. That’s why its known as Fastfood!

McD (13)

We are all getting ready and excited to be hands on the war zone. We were told that we have to wash our hand for 30 seconds for hygiene purpose and also have to wash again every one hour.

McD (14)

Are you ready to eat our own made burger? 😀

McD (15)

Before we start, we camewhore abit with Anna and Benjamin

McD (16)

Since this would be our first experience in the kitchen, we are given a easier task, instead of making Big MAc with 3 layers we go for the easiest and also their charity product for that weekend. Prosperity burger that we will be handling.

McD (17)

So we were given 1st round of demo before we being. Bread toasting machine ..

McD (18)

Follow by adding on 10 slices of onions – yes .. that specific on the supervisor but sometimes it may be more or maybe less depends on the staff experience. Then grab the slices of meat in the gravy and top on, pack and ready to go out to customer.

McD (19)

We were told that, every order came in, there are 2 lane in the burger production area. More experience staff will be place in line 1 is also known as priority lane, or fast lane. Line 2 are more for training staff as when line 1 are filled with order then it will flow to line 2 automatically to cut short customer experience in waiting.

McD (20)

Follow by we have our hands on with supervision on second round. .

McD (21)

and jeng jeng jeng. . . we are all by ourself on making burger. Its fun to work in here yet its a bit challenging when lunch crowd is huge and you make the line jam.

McD (22)

follow by Benjamin . .

McD (23)

After 1 hours in kitchen, we are out to enjoy our Prosperity set.

McD (24)

Available in 2 types, chicken and beef. I used to eat beef when comes to prosperity burger set. This round decided to try out chicken and to my surprise, Chicken taste much better than beef. Black pepper taste is pretty strong to my liking and slight spicy. On that weekend, every prosperity set sell throughout Malaysia McD, RM1 will be donated out to selected charity homes.

It was a great experience to be able to assist in the kitchen and also learn that its not easy to handle all that. It definitely look easy but when you hands on, its different story.

If single patty is  not enough for you, then now Double Prosperity is available for you.

The Lunar New Year is the most important date in the Chinese calendar and is an elaborate celebration in many parts of Asia. Additionally, there are 12 Chinese Zodiac signs and for the year 2013, it is the Year of the Snake. The Snake carries the meaning of malevolence, cattiness and mystery. In certain places or culture, people believe that if they found a snake in their court, the family will be delighted. Also, people like to paste the paper-cut ‘Fu’ (wealth) character in an upside down position on their doors or windows, combined with a snake twisting around a rabbit as a popular pattern to indicate wealth.

Sushi Tei is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant compare to a few in our Malaysia market. It definitely falls on personal preference. I was firstly expose to this brand when I was visiting my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia 6 years ago and they know that I love food, this was one of a Japanese Restaurant that they told me, die die also must try. Back in those time, I have yet to start my food blogging as just enjoy my food whenever I travel.

Love the range that they offer and its pretty unique on the combination and rolls that they have. At that time, KL have yet so many different types of Japanese Cuisine that is similiar to this range except 1 in 1-Utama that always pack with people.

sushi tei (1)

When I first saw this brand landed in Tropicana City Mall 2 years ago, I was very happy that finally it had landed in KL. Nevertheless the brand had establish itself well with a few outlets now available in Klang Valley and Penang. Of course what can we expect next? Try out their new menu for year 2013 onwards also at their latest outlet which is at Setiawalk, Puchong.

sushi tei (2)

The outlet interior is no difference from the rest of the outlet.

sushi tei (3)

sushi tei (4)

sushi tei (5)

Sunrise @ RM5.80, Bloody Sprite @ RM5.80

sushi tei (6)

Design of the new menu looks much better compare to the previous one. Choosing food would not be a problem as more pictures are in it now.

sushi tei (7)

Premium Yee Sang (for 8-10pax)@ RM68.80

sushi tei (8)

Premium really justify the price whereby it comes with cuts of salmon sashimi and prawns

sushi tei (9)

I must say that, I have tried a few yee sang for the past 2 weeks and I rate this is one of the top 2 in my personal list. If you do host any of your reunion dinner at home and lack of yee sang, this is one of a place to ta pau back. I am definitely getting 1 for my family. 🙂

Fresh ingredient and the special mixing sauce that pairs well with the fresh ingredient and did not over power it. A well balance with all the ingredient. REcommended~

sushi tei (10)

Ameabi Kaarage @ RM12.80, One of the signature dish that me and Ken always love to order or never miss is their Salmon Skin @ RM6.80. At the price of it we find it very reasonable, a great snack to start to get our mouth munching. Fried to crisp with every bite and do eat it while its serve fresh. You can choose to dip along with their mayo but we always love to bite it just like that.

sushi tei (11)

First dish from salad range already caught my attention with its chunks of tuna, salmon and squid on top of the salad. Sashimi Salad @ RM16.80. Something green and healthy, this is a appetizer that you shall  not miss. Not only filled with fresh sashimi, the kick that make the whole salad taste awesome is their very own dressing. Filled with light taste of vinegar, and chef special ingredient that make this dish gone in seconds. – REcommended~

sushi tei (12)

Another new item that are in the menu is Kaisen Ramen Salad @ RM28.80. To me it looks weird for the first time as I never have my ramen with salmon sashimi slices like that before. Its always with pork or chicken slice. Not only that, as there are 3 huge flab of crab meat that smack along on it too. The meat is cold and fresh, that once you had that slice you would want to finish the remaining 2 instantly.

Ramen texture is cook to the right texture and the sauce that make it pairs well. I think this would be best to share with another person.

sushi tei (13)

Chuka Fukahire @ RM 6.80, Ika Geso Tataki @ RM 11.80 &  Ika Okura @ RM 5.40

sushi tei (14)

We were lucky to be in the outlet at the right timing as usually fresh sashimi will arrage to most of the Japanese outlet on every Tuesday and Friday. We are here on Friday, therefore these are sashimi are perfectly fresh! Arima (4 kinds) @  RM59.80Tuna Belly, Yellow Tail, Sweet Shrimp, Raw Scallop

sushi tei (15)

Asama (5 piece)  -Tuna, Yellow Tail, Salmon@ RM35.80 

sushi tei (16)

There are also new rolls being introduce with Manguro Lover @ RM11.80,  Dynamic Roll @  RM16.80 & Lobster Salad @ RM12.80,. Among these 3, I prefer Maguro and lobster salad.

sushi tei (17)

Usually we have this with beef slice but this round they have added in another item Salmon Enoki Roll @ RM12.80

sushi tei (18)

Beef Teriyaki is a simple item that I prefer that the beef cubes cook till medium well, then I love mine added on with lots of garlic slices.

sushi tei (19)

Gindara Teriyaki is always one of my favourite that the cod being pan grill to perfect that its slightly crips on the outer layer yet the cod fish meat is well preserve that did not overcook. @ RM26.80, & Sanma Kabayaki @ RM14.80

sushi tei (20)

Gyoza @ RM9.80

sushi tei (21)

Golden Soft Shell Crab @ RM12.80

sushi tei (22)

Hotate Wasabi Mayo is not bad and if the wasabi mayo is a little more spicy then it would have been perfect.  @ RM8.80

sushi tei (23)

Ika Sugata Shio if the size of the squid is smaller or this size is nice to my liking, anything big I just cant take it. 😀 (just me) @ RM15.80

sushi tei (24)

Another item that I like is their Ikura Chawanmushi, very simple with salmon roe @ RM12.80Asari Sakamushi @  RM23.80Agedashi Tofu

sushi tei (25)

oh oh, when fried rice was serve, we all look down on it and why fried rice was serve after we had a awesome sashimi and rolls. This Choi Kara Fried RiceSpicy Fried Rice with Crab Meat  @ RM18.80 proves us wrong. Fried fragrantly, that is something simple and nice, written there spicy but its only mild spicy that bring the fragrance up. Those who need to have rice, then this is the new item that you must try. – Recommended~

sushi tei (26)

Another nice rice item for you is Tan Tan Don, comes with mince chicken meat, top with poarch egg and how I eat this dish is I poke the egg yolk then stir the whole bowl till its evenly mix. Then put in one bite into your mouth will be a well balance of yolky egg, slight salty and spiciness at the end. Something to entice your taste bud abit.  @ RM11.80

sushi tei (27)

Gyu Misoyaki @ RM15.80

sushi tei (28)

Special sauce to dip for the beef. I did it wrong in the first place and then I was taught properly by the waiter on how to get the best of this beef slice.

sushi tei (29)

First dip the fresh beef slice into the sauce then leave it on the hot plate for a quick turn. If you love yours medium well, then just flip both side about 8 second each and its ready to eat.

I did it wrong by did the beef slice then dip the sauce after that.

The difference is, did it the right way, the sauce will soak onto the beef slice and make it aromatic.

sushi tei (30)

Comes to desert I always thought my favourite would be green tea but this round their new product Yogurt Forest Berry @ RM7 steal the limelight. I prefer this over  Matcha Ice Cream & Sesame @ RM7

sushi tei (31)

Their new menu and new product being introduce, is something to look for when you visit this restaurant. You can try those that I recommend but again it comes down to my own preference. 😀 One of my favourite Japanese Restaurant. . .

Sushi Tei in Setiawalk is next to Roomates or nearby TGV cinema wing already.
