Pork balls (& soup) Smile Jul 19, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops | Seafood | Noodles

I've been craving for the mango sticky rice ever since my last visit, so I decided to visit this restaurant again with the bf for dinner.

They have introduced several new dishes, namely pandan chicken, assam fish, red curry chicken wings, jungle minced pork wrap and many others. Among them, this particular dish called pork balls caught my attention.

 
About 10 pork balls were served and they were topped with fried garlic, pork lards and olive oil. Smelled very good and of course tasted delicious as well. The meat was juicy and tender but somehow lacked the "bouncy" texture. See that chili sauce that was served along with the pork balls? Best to dip the balls into the sauce before eating because it did affect the taste lol

 
This is the tofu soup. Minced pork and tofu slices in chicken soup. Nothing extraordinary about this soup; taste was rather mild as I couldn't tell if it was chicken soup or not. However, ingredients were quite a lot in the soup. Can be ordered if you do not want to have tom yum soup.

3 side dishes! Smile Jul 10, 2012

Where does one go when he or she craves for grilled chicken? Nando’s of course!

Recently, Nando’s has introduced 3 new side dishes; namely sweet potato, spinach and mucho peas. During my last visit to Nando’s outlet at Sunway Giza Mall, I chose their latest promotion which is chicken plus three side dishes at the price of RM19.90.

 
As you can see from the picture above, I chose ¼ grilled chicken to go with sweet potato, Mediterranean rice and Peri chips. The sweet potatoes were cut into small chunks and cooked with cinnamon, turmeric and the special Peri-peri sauce. Undeniably, I did not like this side dish due to its taste. It tasted sourish with mild spiciness and I had no idea what is the source of sourness. The combination of these 2 tastes is weird. As for the rice, it had green peas, onions and carrots in it, thus it’s fragrant and nice to be eaten with the Peri chips that were coated with salt and chili powder. In addition to that, I requested for the chicken to be in Lemon & Herb flavour. This is because I can’t take spicy food and I get to enjoy the chicken in its most original form. The chicken was grilled to perfection with the right “crispiness” for the skin and juicy meat on the inside.

Pop Egg Nata Lychee Iced Tea Smile Jul 10, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Stall / Warung | Juices / Bubble Tea / Tea / Yogurt

If I were to give an alternative name to the street (Jalan PJU5/10) nearby Giza Mall, it would be the bubble tea street. Why? Simply because there is Chatime, Ochado, Share Tea and Wu Cha 18 on the same street.

 
The other day I was looking around which shop to enter to get a cup of bubble tea as a reward to myself after a long week of work, I chose Wu Cha 18 (武茶十八) in the end because I realized I’ve never bought anything from this shop before. It seems that Wu Cha 18 operates its business by upholding 4 main principles: brew with premium tea leaves, freshly make to order, finest quality, and strive for customer satisfaction.

 
Entertainment corner!

Entertainment corner!

 
Just like any other bubble tea stores, Wu Cha 18 has several categories of drinks: Fruit Tea series, Milk Tea series, Smoothies, Latte series, Fresh Tea series, Wintermelon series, Macchiato series, Healthy series and Brewed Tea series.

 
I picked the regular Pop Egg Nata Lychee Iced Tea and paid Rm5.80 for it. I opted for normal sugar level because only through this way I could tell if its default taste is too sweet or bland. Before I had my first sip, I wasn’t sure if I made the right decision by ordering this lychee drink. I never liked lychee drink since young, all thanks to the extreme sweetness of lychee juice in packet drinks. Anyhow, this lychee iced tea tasted surprisingly new to me. It wasn’t too sweet and I could tell that it’s quite refreshing at the same time due to the presence of tea.

 
Moving on to the pop eggs, they didn’t turn out to be what I expected them to be. The thickness of pop eggs is thicker as compared to the ones in Ochado, which in turn didn’t really “pop” easily in mouth. I had to bite them with my teeth and this certainly didn’t give me the satisfaction of breaking them by just closing my mouth tongue

Simple Yet Healthy II Smile Jul 08, 2012   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles | Dim sum

Here's another 2 dishes which I ordered at Din Tai Fung.

 
Above is the Baby Green Beans with Minced Pork. The baby green beans were slightly stirred fried hence they were crunchy and still had a raw texture. The addition of minced pork and dried shrimp (even though this wasn't included in the name of the dish but I was quite sure I saw some of them) were flavourful and slightly salty and therefore they complimented the green beans that were rather tasteless perfectly.

 
Next up is the Mushroom Vegetarian Dumpling. This dumpling consists of black fungus, dried mushroom, dried bean curd, water chestnut, vermicelli, baby cabbage. All these ingredients were chopped finely and mixed with vegetable oil together, then wrapped in the dough and steamed until cook. As the name implies, these dumplings were more healthy and tasted very fresh due to the vegetables used. Since the taste was very mild and less flavourful than the Xiao Long Bao, some people may not like this dish but I enjoyed eating such plain yet healthy dumplings.

Pon De Blossom Smile Jul 07, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café

I've always passed by this donut shop called Mister Donut whenever I do my groceries shopping at Jaya Jusco One Utama. It's written there "... from Japan". However, a quick google search brought me to Wikipedia and it says "Mister Donut is a fast food franchise founded in the United States in 1956." shocked

 
Nevermind that, I think the most important aspect here is how good their donuts are. Unlike Big Apple, this hidden shop here may have lacked a bit of attention from the potential customers. They have a variety of donuts here, ranging from the French Cruller, Sweet Ring, Sugar Raised, Pon de Ring series etc.

 

 
From the picture itself, I can roughly tell that the donuts are are thicker than other donut franchises. Just look at the width of donut yo~

 
I ordered the Pon de Blossom at a price of RM2.40. Unlike the conventional donuts, this ring-look alike donut has a texture that somewhat resembles mochi; chewy and soft. Usually I'd prefer my donut to be soft and can be chewed off in one bite, but this one has caught my attention. Due to its texture, I get to enjoy this donut longer rather than finishing one within 2 minutes lol The sugar coating on top of the ring is not too sweet either, which is good, because one wouldn't want to have diabetes right? tongue
