Bad service OK Aug 28, 2012

Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Seafood | Halal

Menus were given to us the moment we sat down but it took quite some effort trying to call the waiter to take my order. It was almost like nobody dared to look at the customers so they didn't have to work! The one who saw us waving called another waiter (who's busy with another table) to take our order even though he was free.

A dish was almost wrongly served to us but in the end, the salad arrived first. I realized that they didn't prepare any eating utensils for us..

 
Then the waiter approaches us, mumbles something and sets the pan on fire right before our eyes.

 
The flame was concentrated on the prawns (yummiest part of dinner!). Dory fish a lil tasteless (btw, where's our lemon?), carrots & broccoli way undercooked and too hard. The veges look very dry too like they've been left in the open for some time.

 
The salmon dish arrived last. At this point, I was still left wondering if I'm supposed to eat with my hands... Usually the utensils are prepared before the dishes actually arrive at the table.

We asked for more butter sauce for the salmon and actually had to ask thrice. A couple of waiters came to us and I'm not even sure if they speak English! Veges were horrid (they're from the same batch) but rice was really fragrant. Salmon was alright..

 
Bleh.. Don't think I'll be returning to the Manhattan Fish Market there but the service is much better in other branches.

Affordable Smile Aug 28, 2012

The location of Sakae Sushi is really strange. It seems you have to exit the actual building (at Plan B) in order to reach it. There are plenty of seats and service is good.

The price of the sushi on the train is considered more reasonable compared to other shops. The train goes all around the shop snaking around the seats (quite amusing). Orders are done through an iPad which is great since the table for 2 is too small to fit 2 menus.

Had a bowl of Chuka Hotate to start things off. IMO, they're a little too hard but tastes great with a hint of spiciness and sesame.

 
Then we grabbed some sushi cos the food was taking a while and we were hungry. Seaweed was fresh and green. Yum..

 
Ordered some kinda soft shell crab in spicy soup set that comes with rice, chuka hotate, 3 slices of salmon sashimi, chawanmushi and miso soup. On my receipt it's written as Muzu and costs RM 30.90. The sashimi was unfortunately not fresh and pretty fishy even after we got a replacement. The chawanmushi here is super nice though! It's so soft, smooth and so egg-y.

 
Liked the spicy soup with tofu but according to him, the soft shell crab was also fishy..

 
The udon in their Kinoko Udon is a bit too soft. The soup is nicer than at Sushi Tei though! Has exactly two bunches of that mushroom, two bunches of straw mushroom, one of that big fat one at the bottom (omg this is nice but pretty tasteless) and 3 slices of fishcake.

 
Overall, food's alright but I probably wouldn't order seafood here. You should try the chawanmushi! I wouldn't mind going back for some udon lol

Early morning nasi lemak Smile Feb 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung | Nasi Lemak

This stall opens early in the morning and sells out by 8.30 am. They're located outside a kopitiam (Foon Lei) at the corner beside the market. There are no tables so you have to takeaway. Many people even bring their own containers!

 
The basic nasi lemak comes with cockles, potatoes, vege, halved hard boiled egg, ikan bilis and peanuts. However, you may request for more or less of anything. You can add on fried egg, curry chicken or even sotong.

 

 
These two packets cost slightly over RM 10 which I deem affordable considering all the extra we took. They taste great and the sambal is just love! You should probably ask for more if they allow it. The curry is good enough though.

Friday set Smile Feb 26, 2013

Categories : Malaysian variety | Restaurant | Noodles | Nasi Lemak

Initially, I had my eyes on something else on their menu but their daily promotion sets caught my eye. It was Friday so I chose that day's deal which came with a cup of Iced Lemon Tea and you can add on RM 1 for a scoop of ice cream.

 
I did not regret ordering the Nasi Lemak Curry Chicken! The rice was really fragrant and I finished all of it with the delicious curry sauce and delectable sambal which wasn't too spicy. The chicken meat was really juicy and soft, with a fair bit of flesh. I enjoyed my meal and wouldn't mind returning!

Fishball noodle OK Feb 26, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Kopitiam | Noodles

Brought here to try their apparently famous fishball noodles.

 
Typical kopitiam setting with lots of seating available.

 
Warning : This is really spicy! Freshly made sambal belacan with lots of chopped chilli to go with your food.

 
The place looks clean with adequate utensils and even a huge packet of tissues on each table.

 
This is the Fishball Noodle (mihun) which costs RM 5.50. You can add on other ingredients like fish head (RM 14) too. The basic one comes with fried fish paste, a tiny bit of seaweed, a couple of leaves and 5 bouncy fishballs.

 
There isn't much taste in the bowl so you're better off adding some chilli but it's so spicy, I had to skip it and ended up having a less than satisfying meal. Also, I had mine with glass noodles and it was sadly overcooked so the noodles were really flimsy (and oddly thinner than usual) like mihun.
