When my sis approached me and asked whether will I be interested in having dinner at Royal Flush, I nodded in happiness as I have seen so many photos of this traditionally designed Chinese restaurant. Resembling chinese shrine or imperial palace, the price of dining here is rather "royal" too, but thanks to Groupon we get to dine at a more affordable rate.

 
Going against the usual norm of overlooking how spacious a restaurant is upon entering, all we saw was these giant vases which were located exactly in front of the main doors. Not sure which part of Feng Shui to cause such arrangement, but I doubt that any patron would be happy if they were to bump into that vases.

 
Royal Flush Chicken
(Pan-fried chicken sprinkled with seaweed)
Top that again with crispy and salty dried shrimps.
Quite a special combination to call for Royal Flush signature dish.

 
Hong Kong Style Steamed Patin
Though the sauce was good, this dish has lacked 2 keys to perfect steamed fish: fresh fish and good timing. What a waste to this Patin fish.

 

[VDO:6]

My favourite dish of that night; silky smooth tofu being deep-fried and braised in the sea of dried scallops, top shell, and mushroom.

 
No particular name in the menu so I would like to name it "Kopiko", the coffee candy because it tasted exactly like one. Royal Flush managed to surprise us with this dessert that doesn't seem to tally with the imperial impression that it is trying to build.

Total damage was RM240 for 6 pax (after 60% discount). I wouldn't come back at a full price of RM100 per pax for the same food. In fact, I'd rather spend my money elsewhere.

 
Recommended Dish(es):  Claypot Pandan Tofu
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM40

Paradise Inn Smile Sep 30, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles | Business Dining

I was delighted to be invited along with Agnes to Paradise Inn, which famed for its double-boiled soup.
Upon entering, I was surrounded by modern wooden dining chairs, light blue pattern that resembles traditional Chinese window pattern, along with orange lanterns in river stream-like arrangement.

 
Double-boiled Bamboo Fungus with Dried Conpoy Soup 干贝菜胆炖竹笙汤 (RM43.90 per pot)

 
Stewed Pork Belly served with Lotus Bun 招牌扣肉包 (RM4.90 per piece)
Paradise Inn certainly know what's best for their patrons where pork belly can only be right with the fatty part. Just gobble this tender and fatty layered pork belly that has been simmered for hours, sandwiched in soft Chinese bun along with lettuce and embrace as it moves down to the throat from your tongue. A must-have for pork lover.

 
Coffee Pork Ribs 咖啡排骨王 (RM20.90 small)
Though we Malaysians might not heard of this interesting combination of coffee and pork ribs, this dish is pretty common in Singapore. Thanks to the Paradise Group, which was originated from Singapore to include this unique dish in Paradise Inn menu. I would say whoever that have come up with this combination is a pure genius. Slices of pork ribs being deep-fried and coated in the coffee-based sweet sauce: maintaining the fragrance of coffee but not the bitterness. Odd, but perfect.

 
Crisp-fried Crystal Prawns in Wasabi Mayo Sauce 青芥末虾球 (RM29.90 small)
Another dish that would take lots of effort in preparation: removal of intestinal vein, crisp fried the prawn to curl into pretty ball shape, coated with wasabi mayo sauce and garnished with fish roes. I personally prefer prawn with intestinal vein removed as it's much more comforting to know that I'm not eating the prawn's waste and it could also be affecting the overall taste. The usage of wasabi in this dish was minimal, just enough to stimulate the nasal passage and clear its way for prawn and mayo flavor. One of my favorites for that night.

 
Hot Plate Tofu with Preserved ‘Cai Xin’and Minced Pork 菜香铁板豆腐 (RM18.90 small)
What's not to like for this smooth bean curd served in sizzling hot plate with a layer of egg at the bottom and topped with generous amount of 'cai xin', minced pork and mushroom? We were told that this is one of parents' favorites in feeding their kids with another add-on rice.

 
Individual Mini Wok Set Meal
Supreme Seafood Fried Rice 海鲜皇鸳鸯炒饭 (RM20.90)

Brilliant solution made specially for single patron or companions that would like to have their own set of dishes from RM19.90++. There are also other varieties of individual set meal such as Hot Steaming Basket, Chargrilled and Hot Stone Bowl where each set comes with a traditional double-boiled soup of the day, a platter of fresh vegetables and side dishes of the day. (with compliments homemade Thai Chili Sauce)

 
Chilled Lemongrass Jelly with Lemonade (Chilled) 酸甘香茅冻 (冷)(RM6.90)

 
Rice Dumplings (2pcs) in Red Bean Paste (Warm) 红豆沙汤圆 (温)(RM6.90)
Black sesame rice dumplings (tong yun) served warm in red bean paste of sago, accompanied with lovely scent of dried citrus peel.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Stewed Pork Belly served with Lotus Bun

Sunday Brunch Buffet OK Sep 30, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Chinese | Western variety | Hotel Dining | Fine Dining


Thanks to the invitation from Thirty8 that both Agnes and I get to enjoy ourselves at their Sunday Brunch buffet, on 38th floor overlooking the captivating scenery of Kuala Lumpur.

 
Dining at Thirty8 with its 360 degrees unobstructed view of Kuala Lumpur was great, but watching how those chefs in their open kitchen preparing my customized order from fresh ingredients to piping hot dishes was even better. For one moment I felt like I was in the set of Iron Chef but with very friendly chefs. The dishes were then sent to my table without any indication of numbering/area. After all, there were limited tables at Thirty8 and it was all about getting personal.

 

 
There were 3 cuisines in general: Western, Chinese and Japanese.
Now, the best thing about being in buffet spread is to sample a bit of everything.

 
I adore beautiful texture of raw meat especially the balanced layers of fat and flesh. Still, Thirty8 Japanese chefs did not excel as these sashimi pieces were the best I can find from the selection. Keep the best on plate and let presentation do the talking.

 
A simple photo that shows how well-trained their staffs are: Realizing that the spoons were missing, the waiter brought us 2 spoons and placed in 2 different directions in case we were to share.

 
Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep” sang by this little girl and the live band certainly was the best highlight of the day.

 

 
After meal dessert was inevitable. Though their macarons have improved in terms of texture from my previous unfavorable review on Thirty8 afternoon tea, I wish they would consider on lowering the sweetness level too.

 
Spending per head: Approximately RM190(午餐)

Restoran Muar Smile Sep 30, 2013

We passed by this restaurant the night before and there was a long queue where patrons would have to stand on the roadside. It appeared that this Restoran Muar is also one of the favorites for foreign tours.
We were lucky to secure a table on the next day for lunch.

 

 
Crispy Fried Egg 炸蛋 RM5 (small)
If you're someone who fond of crispy edges of a fried egg, I assure you that you can have a whole egg of crispiness here! Instead of having the conventional soy sauce to go with this dish, Restoran Muar has added cooking caramel for its slight sweetness along with aroma of dark soy which balanced out the greasiness. It might not be a dish for those health conscious patrons judging from the amount of oil needed, but this is the best fried egg I can ever find in KL town.

 
Salted Egg Chicken 咸蛋鸡肉 RM16 (small)
How can any food goes wrong with salted egg?

 
Petai Squid & Prawn 臭豆苏东虾 RM18 (small)
Another thumbs up dish of fresh prawns,squids and petai fried in belacan sauce that goes very well with white rice. Not too spicy to numb the tongue but enough to add in the fragrance.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Crispy fried egg
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM15(午餐)

House e@Curve OK Sep 30, 2013

It was our first time visit to House Restaurant e@curve though I've tried the other branch at G Tower.

 
Home-made Socialized Fruit Tea (with Lychee sorbet) RM12.90 (left)
Lemonade RM9.90 (right)

We were so in love...with this home-made socialized fruit tea. It had the natural aroma of tea with a tinge of lychee sweetness but no presence of sugar. Lemonade was just being lemonade.

 

 

 
Creamy Carbonara with Beef Bacon RM24.90
Spaghetti was al dente along with chewy beef bacon but cabonara sauce was a bit of disappointment with its slightly thick sauce.

 
Penne Pasta with Salmon RM29.90
In smoked salmon cream sauce, vine ripped cherry tomatoes
Penne pasta was cooked to perfection,with cream sauce bursting out on every bite,leaving me speechless in its wonder. Differ than the one I had at its G Tower outlet, the salmon was perfectly grilled.

House Restaurant e@curve has lift up to our expectation in terms of standard and consistency with its branch at G Tower.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Penne Pasta with Salmon
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM30(午餐)
