After a round of dinner, the girls decided that the night was still too early to end so we went to get some drinks and dessert. One of them had tried the food at Torii and highly recommends it so that was where we went. 

The ambience there was really nice, especially upstairs where it's more for dates and casual drinking. When I saw the menu we all wished that we hadn't eaten beforehand because everything sounded really delicious, especially the yakitoris. But we were already quite full so we settled for something less filling instead. 

 
My drink was the peachy mint (virgin) mojito. Since I was the responsible driver that night, I rather not risk getting stopped at roadblocks and be in some sort of trouble. So I opted for an alcohol free night and actually, this was quite a smart choice. Super refreshing from the mint and peach juice, then chilly from the crushed ice. I could have two glasses of this easily and I wonder if their liquor mixed one would taste better. 

 
To share, we ordered the coconut panacotta that comes with a scoop of ice cream. Usually it is vanilla but on a friend's suggestion, we switched it to white chocolate lavender - in hindsight, that was the best decision of the night. The panacotta was super smooth but the toppings of toasted coconuts and fruits gave a really nice texture. Then the ice cream, it is safe to say that it was the best scoop of ice cream I had in a very long while. 

We will probably be back to have their dinner menu. Can't wait.

Brunch for two Smile Jan 04, 2016

A friend decided to try out Two Sons bistro for our brunch meet-up. It was a place that I have wanted to try for some time now but never got the chance to. However I was quite full by the time we met as I have gone to have breakfast with my grandparents beforehand, so we only got to try one dish which we ordered to share. 

 
As always, we both ordered ourselves a latte each. The coffee was pretty good as it had a nice roasted flavour and creamy from the milk, but not overly so. I really liked this and for Rm 9 a cup, it was worth it. 

 
To share, we decied to indulge in a plate of big breakfast and the operative word being 'big'. Honestly do not know how anyone is going to be able to finish this plate by themselves unless they are starving or something. This platter came with two sausages, poached eggs with a toast, hash brown, stir-fried mushroo, baked beans, ham, some tomatoes and a lettuce. 

Even with the both of us, it was too much for the two of us. But it was actually pretty good which is what we look for in some good and hearty breakfast food. 

Can't wait to be back here to try out their more well-known dishes like the clams/mussels and also their pastas.

There is never a chance for me to say no if someone asks me to eat something Thai. Even if I am feeling unwell, I will still drag myself out of bed just to have a good bowl of hot tom yum soup. Since there was an errand or two that had to be done there, we decided to have our dinner at Midvalley and my first option was of course Absolute Thai. 

 
First we got the Omelette with Oysters. This was actually pretty good was exactly what I wanted when I ordered, plus it had little bits of raw cabbage at the bottom. Not too sure if I was eat that together with the egg or not but I ignored it mostly. The only draw back of this dish is that there was a little too much oil which I had to wipe off with a tissue paper. 

 
And like always, we ordered our favourite steamed fish with lime, ginger and chilli. This will always be my favourite dish to order especially when it comes in the metal dish that remains constantly heated throughout your entire dining experience. The soup is the star because I can have mouthfuls of it, probably about to die from the spice and kick but that won't stop me from going back for more.

 
Then finally the bowl of Seafood Tom Yum soup. As always when it comes to Absolute Thai's, it is incredibly spicy and also sour. Eating this hot was just an assault on your senses, but the good kind and keeps you coming back for more. The seafood always tastes fresh without being overcooked and dry. I could finish this entire bowl myself on a good day.

 
After all the hot and spicy stuff I had, as a nice ending to the meal I got my favourite thai dessert - the red jewels. Basically it's sweetened coconut milk doused shaved ice with slices of nangka & little red jewels of chestnut individually wrapped with jelly. I always loved this because it's sweet but has different kinds of texture, something Absolute Thai does this very well.

The one thing I really enjoy about meeting up with my best friends is our food adventures. We are always willing to go a little further just for some good food and this time, we went to Damansara Uptown where a lot of good food business are popping up.

On our too try list was Fat Spoon. Opened by two sisters, they bring our childhood comfort food back to you and the flavours literally bring me back to my younger days. They really do bring justice to our favourite foods.

 
Also, their interior and decorations are really rustic. Sitting inside made me feel like I was brought back in time where my grandparents' lives would be like. It feels very homely and warm - however be warned that there is only a selected number of seats so during rush hours might be a slightly troublesome to get a table.

 
We ordered their deep fried sweet potato fries and these were super good. The sweet potatoes were sliced super thinly, smaller than the regular french fries then battered together before being plunge into super hot oil. As a result it is almost like hashbrowns but using sweet potato instead. These were super addictive and not very oily which was a major plus. 

Then for my friend, she ordered their ulam fried rice which has been raved about by a number of people. After trying it I understood why because the rice was just so fragrant and super delicious when it is served to the table hot out of the wok. It also came with small portions of belacan kangkung and long beans, plus a pappadam. SO SO SO good.

As for me, I ordered the special set meal for the day. I got the Basil Beef Rice which comes with a bowl of ABC soup as a side. The moment I saw that it came with a soup, I just couldn't not order it because it is two of my favourite things combined.

The basil beef was so so so fragrant and topped over steaming hot rice was just isntant comfort food. All you had to do was break the yolk of the fried egg and eat it all together, bringing you to heaven. Plus at the end when you finished most of the egg & meat, pour in the ABC soup and indulge. 

Would definitely be back for more! <3

After doing my grocery shopping at Isetan, KLCC - I thought to just sit down and enjoy a good Japanese meal before heading home. Spotting Senya long ago, I was intrigued by the dining concept as it remained true to its Japanese homage and also was not to exorbent in pricing. 

Laid out at the counter are already boxed bento-like meal. You can either purchase those to be taken away or eat at their restaurant. They also have a menu which you can order off of with items such as teriyaki chicken, assorted types of ramen and different types of rice bowls.

A friend had told me how good their Chicken Kaarage rice bowl was and spotting it already prepared, I took that. Although I'd usually like my meal to be steaming hot, I opted to just eat my rice bowl without being re-heated with a nice glass of hot green tea to enjoy.

 
The first thing that struck me was the aroma of the chicken and the sauce that it was doused in. Until today I am still unsure what kind of sauce it was but there's a hint of ginger, garlic and maybe some soy sauce. It was so good as it gave the meat extra flavourings.

I enjoyed my rice bowl a lot and ate everything down to the very last grain of rice. Although I can say that it took me quite a while because for Rm17, if I remember correctly, the portion was quite huge with a lot of adequately sized chicken pieces.

Now I can't wait to go back and try other things from their menu.
