CRABS! Smile Jan 13, 2016

At this current point I feel like I'm going through a phase where all I want to have is seafood. It's probably not the best thing for my general health as it really spikes up the cholesterol, but in that moment I do not really mind. My current obsession happens to be seafood especially crabs cooked in different ways and also my favourite prawns. 

THANK GOODNESS mom was in a good mood and wanted to treat her good friend to a birthday dinner. Of course I bugged her to bring me along which was no problem since that friend of hers adore me. Off to South Sea we went one evening and I was near exploding with joy because its my favourite place to get super good seafood. 

 
We got the Wine steamed fresh tiger prawns. OMG THIS! IS! SO SO SOOOOO GOOD! Each prawn was super juicy and succulent, absorbing most of the tasty soup it was cooked in that also has very strong flavour from the crustacean. And the best way to tell if the prawns are fresh or not is by sucking out all the yummy guts from the head, which I had so many of and can proudly say that the prawns were just alive momentarily before being picked up from the tank to be cooked. SO SO SO YUMS. 

 
Finally came the main star which is the crabs. We ordered two kinds, the first that arrived was the black pepper flavour and omg it smelled amazing. There was more than just the spiciness off the black pepper but also some curry leaves and secret ingredients. The spicy kick of the 'sauce' and wok-hei really enhances the flavours of the sweet & juicy crab meat. 

 
Even though that was good, my ultimate favourite was the Butter Crab. The sauce was amaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaazing and there was a generous amount of it, coating each pieces of the crab and seeped into each nook & cranny there is. Plus there's plenty more at the bottom of the plate for you to spoon over your crab. Or like me, slurp it up by the spoonfuls.

CANT WAIT TO GO BACK. I'm literally salivating at the memory of this. ;-;

I had to restock my kitchen with food again and the only place I can get most of the Japanese ingredients I need is found at Isetan, KLCC. Plus I do enjoy casually strolling through the isles looking at all the different & unique things that are sold there. Often times when I'm done with paying for my food it would be either around lunch or dinner time, which leads me to Senya.

There you can find your usual Japanese food fix and are quite famous for their bowls of udons & ramen. However I am always there for their rice bowls which are often times already prepared and laid out at the front for people to buy as takeaway meals. If you do choose to dine there the staff would reheat it for you if that's what you like.

 
MY FAVOURITE! The Beef Don set which comes with a side salad, agedashi tofu and miso soup. It also comes with green tea, can't remember if this is refillable or not. All of this only costs me Rm25 and the portion is actually bigger than I had initially expected.

The beef don is supr good as each meat is succulently juicy plus the sweet sauce that is poured over it coats the rice nicely. I usually only am able to finish half of this and takeaway the other for my breakfast or something. See, two meal with one purchase haha. 
The sides are also pretty good, especially the miso soup. I can just slurp up the whole bowl easily as it is so full flavoured from i dont know what + miso. Heavenly.

Really enjoy it whenever I dine at Senya and would happily be back for more.

Soup Smile Jan 07, 2016

A friend of mine really loves eating Dragon-I and whenever we visit Pavillion, this would be her first choice. The second would be Din Tai Fung which is often just as busy as the former. I suspect that her adoration with these two restaurants stems from her Shanghainese lineage. But I would go along with her suggestions and try the foods too, which usually comes introduced by her. 

 
The one thing that she said is a must-order is the Chilled Spicy Chicken Szechuan Style. Now I've never been a fan of food that is not heated up, but this one is actually pretty good. I think it's the spicy sauce that coats the cold meat. However if you're not good with spice then I suggest scraping off all the chilli oil before taking a bite of this.

 
Now this is my absolute favourite and a must order for me. XIAO LONG PAAAAAAOOOOOO. 

So this is basically small little meat dumplings which also has soup on the inside. Whenever the basket is serve to you, you would take a CAREFUL bite of the dumpling & happily slurp up the soup inside before eating the rest of your delicious parcel. Perhaps add a little black vinegar with ginger to it which will enhance its flavours even more.

I alone can eat four of these and even more if there isn't any other order. But then it wouldn't exactly be the cheapest dumpling either as its coming from Dragon-I. However it is one of the best that I have eaten.

Although I love eating vegetables, all kinds of it and am happy just having those. But then there are days where I am an absolute carnivore when all I want to eat is just meat & meat only. Sometimes its worth traveling way out of my way just to get something good to eat.

Mother brought us all the way to Puchong to try out some BKT. Apparently she was brought there by a client and really liked the food, even if it is way out of our way. Plus going there in the afternoon is kind of crazy since it's super hot and when drinking soup, it's just going to make you sweat even more. 

 
An order we go that had me going slightly crazy was the paper wrapped herbal chicken. Although the size of it was small, the super soft & tender meat that has absorbed all the flavour of the sauce just makes it easy to overlook that. I really liked coating my rice with the thick and heavily flavoured sauce, eating all the goji berry at the same time. The onyl thing is I wish there was more of the sauce rather than the scarce amount that we got. 

 
And of course we had to get an order of BKT plus some braised pork too. The one here was pretty good because the soup had a strong flavour of herbs which was just to our liking, plus each spoonful of scalding hot BKT soup was worth it despite the heat. 

I'd definitely drive up to Ah Soon just to have my fix of meat & BKT. :3

Crab explosion. Smile Jan 06, 2016

After seeing a picture of chilli crab on our mutual friend's Facebook timeline, my friend & I were dying to have some too. So what other place to go to that is nearby us other than Mei Keng Fatt and also because that's where we saw the picture too.

Funnily enough I have not dined there for years ever since their prices has gone rather high and is now meant more for tourists rather than locals. However I can't deny that their food is pretty good if not for the price tag that is attached to each dish that's enough to make you sweat a little. 

Still, a craving is often times stronger than any form of logic so we ventured there anyway. Anything for good food especially when it's all we can think of.

 
Of course we had to order the chilli crab and mantaos, half fried and half are steamed. We most definitely preferred the deep fried ones because they are crisp on the outside but super soft on the inside, absorbing the sauce super well. As for the crabs they are quite big and the meat was very fresh. 

 
We also ordered another plate of salted egg yolk crab. The man that took our order said he would give us an offer of Rm50 only as opposed to the original price and we were sure glad to have taken it. Honestly I much preferred this in comparison the the chilli crab, only because this was like an overdose of salted egg yolk. Plus the meat was super sweet because the crab is fresh. 

Although the price is higher than what you would regularly pay for at other seafood places, its worth trying.
