Korean Food Heaven Smile May 09, 2014

Categories : Korean | Café | Burgers / Sandwiches | Noodles

After so many times of not being able to try out Namoo @ Publika, I finally had the chance to have a nice Korean lunch last Friday with the colleagues! The cute mascot of Namoo welcomed us at the entrance of the cafe bistro and we can't wait to try out their dishes!Firstly, some background on Namoo smile Namoo which means 'tree' in Korean was founded on a deep-rooted belief that good food should be fresh, natural and timeless. And for that reason Namoo have gone to great lengths to ensure that everything in the menu is authentically korean, but fused with a modern twist! The interior of the cafe follows their name which is using earthly colours and materials. It has a very comfy ambiance where you can choose to sit at the high table, the dining area or even the sofa area. You can even choose to dine al-fresco where they have an outdoor dining area next to the playground. This is very convenient especially for parents who want to bring their children where you can monitor them at the playground/park smile There are a variety of dishes at Namoo ranging from their Rice Burgers, Pastas, Bibimbap, Western and also their desserts!My colleague ordered the Bulgogi Pasta which is so AWESOME!! Although a bit too sweet for us, the portion of beef bulgogi was so much! Namoo is super generous with their ingredients and I couldn't stop picking at the beef bulgogi! Yummy!!

Meanwhile, I ordered the Bibi Rice Burger. The rice patties/buns were grilled nicely with bits of seaweed to give it a nice fragrance and I love the charred bits of the rice buns! The Bibi Rice Burger comes with salad and fries.

Another colleague ordered the Omurice which is rice wrapped in omelet and topped with sweet chili sauce and fried prawns. I felt that the sauce was a bit too much and would prefer they not being too generous with the sauce which caused the prawns to be slightly soggy and sweet

Meanwhile, we also ordered the Spicy Seafood Pasta which again Namoo was generous with their seafood. It was not as spicy as we hoped it to be and again the sauce was sweet

 
And the star of the show arrived! The King's Bing Soo. Always saw this in Korean dramas and had wanted to try this since I knew it was available in Namoo. So of course we would order this. Love the multigrain powder that they sprinkled on the ice-cream and the chewy rice cakes! The fruits were relatively fresh and sweet and we practically finished the whole jug!

There are so many burger joints that have been mushrooming all around town and names like Burger Lab, Junkyard Burger and others are not foreign to food lovers. Fat Boy's The Burger Bar is also not foreign to those who have been chasing burger joints.I had the chance to try out Fat Boy's at Avenue K when I was at KLCC to check out PICOM Fair 2014. Have not had the chance to check out Avenue K and was surprised to see another shopping place next to the Putra LRT Line. *Sorry noob since just came back from Kelantan*Saw the sign board for Fat Boy's next to the exit of the Putra Line and since the boyfie is a huge fan of anything sandwhiched between two buns, we decided to go and have a try after having a nice exercise going through the PICOM fair.This Fat Boy's outlet is located at the 3rd Floor of Avenue K and you won't have any trouble looking for it as the signs at Avenue K were very helpful. Since it was pretty late at that time *roughly 10 pm* there weren't much people at Avenue K.

We went straight up to Fat Boy's and browsed through their menu before deciding to have their Wimpy Burger. Too bad they were out of beef patties so we went for their lamb. We had quite a hard time choosing which burger we want to try out so the waiter recommended either the Fat Basterd (Double Patties) or the Wimpy. Since it was quite late, we just went for the Wimpy.The owner of the outlet gave us a complimentary Chicken Macaroni Soup on the house since we were the only and last patron for that night! *thumbs up* The soup was really tasty, slightly similar to our Chinese chicken soup but with a slight touch of vinegar and the addition of macaroni. The soup was really heartening and appetizing!

 
Our Wimpy burger which consists of a choice of patty, streaky bacon, cheddar cheese, fried egg and homemade Fat Boy's BBQ sauce on a sesame bun! It is served with thick cut fries which were crispy on the outside and super fluffy on the insides! I would prefer the egg to be slightly runny but overall the burger was really tasty! It was really filling even though me and the boyfie shared the burger.

Japanese meal @ SushiZanmai Smile Mar 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Seafood | Ramen/Udon/Soba

Went to Sushi Zanmai at Paradigm Mall for dinner with the family. As usual, there was a huge line outside the outlet and looking for a parking space on a Friday night was really tiring. However, since sis was back for the weekend so we went out for dinner.

As usual we ordered what we normally ordered which are...

Well actually this was the first time we ordered this but sis said it was super tasty so we tried it and yes it was amazing. Totally love the combination of egg omelet and the sauce on the top smile

And this is what I normally order to lie to myself that it is a healthy diet. Haha. But I totally love this huge bowl of salad with sliced raw tuna and salmon. You can opt for three different types of sauce but I normally order the Zanmai sauce as this is the sauce that my family likes.

This oyako-don is what my mum and sister ordered to share. 6 pieces of large succulent oysters in tempura flour on a bed of white fluffy Japanese rice with plum pickles.

 
Soft shell crab maki is also what we normally order as mum needs her share of soft shell crab whenever we go to Sushi Zanmai. LOLs! But seriously the soft shell crab is so delicious that we never fail to order it

 
And this is another soft shell crab maki but with avocado and the mentai sauce. I can't recall its name but I think it is the Dragon Roll? Anyway, the creamy avocado and the total combination of this roll is just amazing!

 
Overall a great dining experience at Sushi Zanmai!

New Daily Set Meals @ PizzaHut OK Mar 20, 2014   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Halal

Pizza Hut came up with a new daily value meal which is really very affordable at 50% discount! Boyfie and I managed to try their meal on a Sunday where they have an option of Sausage with Cheesy Dip, Caeser Salad and Apple Crumble with a scoop of Vanilla Ice-cream. Since we were kinda hungry we ordered the Sausage and Caeser Salad.

Service was quick and they served us the Caeser Salad promptly. The portion was quite large and they did not stinge on the portion even though it was 50% off. However, I don't really like the "chicken" bits in the salad. They were so dry and slightly salty.

Then came the sausages. This dish was quite satisfying in terms of the size of the sausage. They were crisscross cut on the surface which give it a crisp texture on the surface.

The cheeesy dip that came with it however was disappointing. I don't know how can they call it a cheesy dip. It was watery and had a weird taste. I chose to eat my sausage with my salad instead of the cheese dip.

I would think that the meal was rather worth it for a simple meal if you are on a tight budget. I would recommend the Monday or Wednesday meal where pizza is on the menu for just RM5++

Texas Chicken @ Sunway Pyramid

Texas Chicken @ Sunway Pyramid

 
Finally had the chance to try Texas Chicken that the boyfie was raving about! He was going on and on about how it was as affordable as McD and tastier than KFC. He especially emphasized on their honey biscuit! So since we were at Sunway Pyramid, he finally had the chance to get me to try Texas Chicken

So here is what we got at RM 5.95 not inclusive of tax. One honey-butter biscuit, one spicy chicken, fries and BOTTOMLESS drinks! I love places with bottomless drinks *thumbs up*

This was the star of the whole meal. It was so fluffy and the honey and butter spead was so yummylicious! It was crumbly and practically melt in your mouth! I would seriously go back just to have this honey-butter biscuit.

Meanwhile, the chicken was just average! KFC spicy chicken may not be doing so well these days but the spices for the Texas Chicken was not strong enough and not really incorporated into the meat. But the upside is that it was a huge piece! Comparing to KFC, Texas Chicken is twice the size and is sizzling hot!

 
The fries are also one of the stars of the meal! Just the right texture, crispy and fluffy on the inside and not soggy! One of the best fries smile

 
And the bill came up to around RM 6++ with tax! Which was really worth it
