After buying some grocery in Giant, I went for a quick lunch at the Kluang Station... Kluang station is actually a kopitiam inside Kluang’s railway station. It is being commercialize and further expanded by the original Lim family’s great grandson Mr. JJ Phun. All their coffee beans are hand roasted. They still maintain the original food and drinks such as half boil eggs, hainanese coffee and toast bread which sold since 1938. The first modernized Kluang Station were opened in One Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya.It’s located on the Lower Ground Floor at the Oval court, 1 Utama new wing (opposite Bread Story). Kluang Station is a nice typical Kopitiam concept place in 1 Utama. They serve several types of food including their famous Nasi Lemak, Roti Bakar, and other types of food one finds in Smalltown Malaysia.

The toast was good, crispy on the outside but soft on the inside... It costs for RM1.50 only. Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM10.90), Special Fried Chicken (RM4.50), Nasi Ayam Masak Merah (RM7.90), Pineapple Drink (RM3.50), Kluang Mee Siam (RM4.90), Nasi Lemak (RM 3.90), Iced Coffee (RM 2.80 each)

All the food and drinks sold in Kluang Station is quiet good with a reasonably price...

The Hainanese Chicken Chop is quiet delicious... It's perfect if adding a Cham Iced with the Hainanese Chicken Chop... The freshly fried chicken chop was deliciously crispy on the outside. A thick piece of juicy chicken thigh was revealed beneath all that crispiness... The sweetish tomato sauce with garden peas and baked beans was perfect with the already scrumptious chicken... I enjoyed mopping the sauce with the crinkle-cut fries that came with the dish.

They also sell the delicious nasi lemak and only cost RM3.90... It's quiet cheaper when you go for lunch in One Utama Shopping Centre... Rif’s nasi lemak was alright. Fragrant coconut milk infused rice with spicy sambal and crunchy ikan bilis, I kept thinking we should have got some chicken rendang to go with…hehe... If having a chicken rendang eating along the nasi lemak, it will be a very good experience there...

For the drinks, I prefer like the Cham Iced. It costs Rm2.80... It's the best partner for the Hainanese Chicken Chop (my own opinion )... The "kao" coffee is also a good choice of drinks during the tea time... The “kao” coffee concluded our satisfying tea break..

I like dining here as the food is quite good (at least for now) and reasonably priced. It's the one of the better kopitiams around. Quite an ideal place to dine in if one is on a budget and sick of fast food.

The Coffee Stain by Joseph Smile Dec 29, 2013

Categories : Western variety | Pizza/Pasta | Steaks / Chops

Hi there foodies... Today’s post is going to be about this amazing little treasure find, my friend and I discovered on a day out in KL. After a long day of shopping, we were looking for a nice and cozy place to grab a cup of coffee and catch up. My friend recommended me about this popular café somewhere in Fahrenheit88 and me, being the eager beaver on trying new places, insisted we go there. We eventually found the place without any effort. This cafe is easily to be found in Fahrenheit88.
“The Coffee Stain by Joseph” as the café is called, is located on the level 3 of Fahrenheit88. I'm personally not really familiar with all these fancy coffee lingos and ended up staring at the menu for quite some time before making a decision. The menu consisted of everything from coffee to tea to even smoothies and milkshakes.
One of the most interesting part of the menu was a section called the “The Slow Bar” where they take what they call the “single origin” coffee beans of the day and use special brewing methods that sound like something your would find in a science laboratory. Some of the strange brewing methods they provided were siphon, chemex and aeropress. All drinks ranged between RM6 to RM12. They also had a variety of cakes (they had Red Velvet cake, for you Red Velvet junkies like me) and pastries too.
In the end, I decided get a mocha and a mocha cheese cake

. Who couldn’t resist a drink with some sort of a chocolate element? My friend got an espresso macchiato. They were absolutely lovely. I would describe the flavor as being very pure to the ingredients, unlike some other coffees I have had that had a very strong roasted flavor that often overpowered the coffee flavor.
We sat around and chatted. The atmosphere was chilled and laidback. My friend then mentioned that she was told that this café did a thing called 3D coffee foam art. I was appalled that she did not mention it earlier as I would have asked the barista about it. After much discussion, we decided that since we were here, we might as well just ask about it.
We then asked the barista about and he made a hot chocolate with the coffee foam art. I nearly died from the cuteness when I first saw it. Three little cats make from foam floating on top of the hot chocolate. I was really amazed. After taking pictures of it from almost every angle possible, we were caught between the dilemma of watching the little foam cats slowly melt away or devour those little buggers. We sadly ate each one of those little kitties of foam and shared the hot chocolate. I have to say that that cup of hot chocolate was one of the best I have ever had. It was thick and luxurious. Gosh, just thinking about makes me want to have one right now.
Japanese artist makes 3D works of art out of coffee froth.You can ask them to create any your favourite cartoon on the coffee froth... They won't decline your demand if they know how to do it...
After some though, I realized why the name “Coffee Stain by Joseph” sounded so familiar to me. I remember seeing a branch in Publika at Solaris Dutamas. I ran through one of the flyers there and discovered that they were featured in TimeOutKL as one of the best coffee joints in KL. The main branch in Publika also serves a vast variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I really would like to try out the branch in Publika one day to get my hands on some of their food. If you are looking for a nice cozy place for warm cup of coffee (or cold, if the day is hot) or just to get a cup of drinkable art, then please do drop by The Coffee Stain by Joseph. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as I did.

KL's Chic Little Paris Smile Nov 25, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : French | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops | Seafood

Tucked away in the hill of Changkat Kia Peng, just a stone's throw away from KLCC, a beautiful abandoned mansion converted into a chic French House, thanks to the vision of owner Sainy Chun. This establishment is truly an urban gem. A little representation of Paris in the middle of Kuala Lumpur.

It's all about details at Maison Francaise, and we are not even talking about the food yet. Blessed with plenty of natural light, the decor is classical French while relatively minimalist, with a monochrome colour theme, fresh roses on the dining tables, elegant chandeliers, and French accordian music in the background. There is also a pool area downstairs which is only open for functions and events. Looking out the windows or balcony, a sea of green with partial view of the sparkling Twin Towers is a sight for sore eyes.

Headed by Chef Franck Lamache, whose accomplishments include his stints at the 3 Star Michelin, Crillion hotelin, Paris (Les Embassedeurs), Alain Ducasse and Le Taillevent to name a few, you can expect nothing but well-executed authentic French cuisine here. Yet, contrary to what we know about French cuisine, Chef Franck focuses on light, refined and healthy cooking style, hence we can enjoy our meal without worrying too much about our waistlines.

Service staff are well-mannered and attentive, without being disruptive, making the dining experience such a pleasure. They were truly on top of their game. Now to the food. Amuse Bouche came in a form of light and airy Monk Fish mousse accompanied by tangy tomato coulis, showcasing Chef Franck's delicate touch with seafood, while the vegetarian Amuse Bouche played safe with several mouthfuls of earthy mushroom soup, elevated by a touch of truffle oil.

 

 
With increasing numbers of health conscious diners, it's always reassuring to know that there are more than just salads for the vegetarians. The vegetables terrine with kalamata olives and goats cheese struck a chord with my vegetarian lunch company with its vibrant colours and classic provencal flavours.

 
The terrine consists of delicate layer of red capsicum, zucchini and tomato, pairing extremely well with the aromatic chopped olives, peppery arugula, and the rich goats cheese.

The Smoked fish platter is one of the signature dishes at Maison Francaise. Arranged beautifully on a black slate, it was almost too beautiful to eat, a masterpiece actually.

 
Smoked inhouse, the paper thin slices of fish were delicate and less salty than store-bought variety, although the co-star of the show was the refreshing and delightful cucumber salad.

 
Vegetarian Risotto is not actually on the menu but can be requested. Topped with a parsley pesto and supported by tomato coulis, the creamy grains were comforting, to say the least. Simplicity at its best.

 
It's not easy to do justice to black cod as it's such a delicate ingredient. Chef Franck kept it simple by pan frying and finishing in the oven, then pairing the fish with well thought out accompaniments: Heady Lobster Bisque, Quenelle of mash with mushrooms, Vibrant Pesto, Slightly crunchy vegetables for textural contrast. Crispy skin and buttery flesh, the black cod was textbook perfect.

 
Maison Francaise offers very affordable High Tea daily from 1pm-5pm. So instead of dessert proper, we got to sample a variety of teatime treats and the Canele de Bordeaux was a clear favourite with a caramelised shell, fluffy interior and custardy centre. Also superb was the roasted figs, lemon madeleines and the refreshing apricot sorbet.

Whether it's a romantic date for two, a girly hangout in the afternoon, a business lunch, even a wedding dinner, Maison Francaise has it covered. More than its good look, it has the potential to become one of the best French restaurants in Klang Valley.
