I don't know why but I was strongly craving for some good comfort food. Actually I think I was just strongly craving for the super yummy food we can get at Sam's so we got dressed and drove all the way out to Damansara just to dine there. Thankfully it was rather empty on a weeknight or else we'd be waiting a while to get served and I was already starving by then.

 
My immediate order was the mutton curry with a side of toast. I am pretty sure the last time we dined there they offered some naan or pita bread, but this time they said that there isn't such thing. Weird but that didn't stop me from dipping my hot toast into the super thick & flavourful curry, then happily eat the tender and succulent mutton pieces. Its so so sooooo good especially on a cool night.

 
As always we have to order a serving of the grilled chicken leg. I've already raved about this in my previous review so I'm not going to talk too much about it. But this is absolutely positively delicious. Enough said.

 
That night we got something new to try which is the grilled lemon sole and it was pretty amazing. The fish was nicely grilled with good seasoning and the side vegetables was AMAZING! Cause they were stir-fried with lots of garlic and butter so it was super flavourful.

It's jsut awesome how the food at Sam's never disappoint. Plus the price is not too exurbent which means you won't have to worry about overspending and still receive good sized portions.

Porky afternoon Smile Feb 10, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

After running some errands for the boss at the bank nearby, my colleague & I dropped by Champ's for lunch. There were just too many people and with a long line, we decided that it was better to get something to eat first rather than stick around with the lunch-hour crowd. 

 
This was my favourite order of the day. It's bascally one century egg sliced into fours and served with a side of pickled ginger. I presume that this was a duck egg because the yolk was soft & custard-like which was heavenly to eat especially with the tangy yet spicy ginger. I could eat this all on my own. 

 
Then for main to share we ordered braised pork belly with preserved vegetables. This is my favourite comfort food which my grandma cooked often back home. Although the flavour profile isn't exactly the same as this is more savoury than sweet, I still think it's pretty good as the meat portion was big enough for two to share with lots of sauce & veggies. 

 
Rather than have a serving on rice, I opted for the fried mantao instead and dipped it into the pork sauce. This was fresh out of the fryer which was pretty amazing especially after getting soaked in lots of the preserved veggie sauce & some belacan chilli.

If you're around the area and is looking for something different, then try Champ's Kitchen. They have traditional shanghainese/taiwanese pork dishes which are actually pretty good even if it will clog an artery or two.

Penang Craving Smile Feb 04, 2016   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

Coincidentally my boss is from Penang so his favourite food will no doubt be the kind that reminds him of home. Then luckily enough there's a place rather near our office that specializes in that so it comes as no surprise that he would go there for lunch rather often. 

 
The only thing I really like to order there is the Penang Loh Mee. The soup is super thick & flavourful, plus there's a nice kick from the grated garlic which you mix in. It's completely different from the regular loh mee we get at our local restaurants but it's also good. Even better if you ask for extra fried shallots to add with your noodles. 

 
Then the Prawn Noodles are pretty good too, or at least that is what my boss says. To me it's only mediocre because I had better ones in Ampang.

Another thing that I really like is their lobak and rojak. But we didn't order those that day because it would be way too greedy of us. Though we always order either one when we do have lunch there with our other colleagues.

Old school Smile Jan 28, 2016

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Steamboat/Hotpot | Private Party

So this has been a recent discovery of my mom's ever since dining there with her friends. Which means she was very eager to bring the family there too, especially to enjoy the decor of the restaurant.

However be prepared that the parking is a nightmare to deal with cause there's soo many cars around the area that finding an empty spot will be like finally finding heaven. But hwne you're there, get ready to be taken back to china town in the 60s or 50s era when you're dining at Dragon Door Steamboat. 

 
As someone places an order for all the food, feel free to go to the sauces station and mix up all the ones you want. It's basically up to you how much of each ingredient that you want and you can even take ten different kinds of bowls of sauces. Here are the few that I took and even went for refills halfway through the meal. The fermented beancurd mixed with chopped onions, garlic and parsley is amazing. 

 
This was the cart of all that we ordered. Honestly the portions of each order is quite substantial and a little more than what we would usually get at any steamboat restaurants. However it is also slightly more expensive but definitely worth trying especially for their soups.

 
The one that I liked the most is the superior herbal soup that was heavy ladden with spices and also all the herbs. Cooking meats in it is heavenly especially dipping it in the sauces after. I can drink bowls after bowls of it. And another special thing about Dragon Door is their soups are all boiled over a charcoal flame rather than the usual gas stove.

 
They also have a bbq meats selection, however this to me was not as good as the steamboat. Because it's just a few slices of meat cooked in a claypot with some scallions and garlics. But it was definitely different because it's also cooked over charcoal heat. 

I do like dining here and would most definitely be back, if im ready to brave the nightmarish traffic plus lacking of parking conditions.

Salmon Smile Jan 19, 2016

Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Seafood

Since I was around the area and my friend was willing to meet me for dinner, we went somewhere nearby as neither of us were up to driving. So we went to Koyaku Grill which was just in the neighbourhood. Plus we like the ambience and also the food.

 
For starters we ordered the house salad with dressing on the side to share. It was quite a big bowl especially since it is meant for one person and luckily we asked for the dressing to come seperately. I am not entirely sure what the mix was but there is definitely a hint of wasabi in it, perhaps even too much because the kick was rather strong. which personally I like though I can't say the same for my friend.

 
To share we both ordered the grilled salmon head with salt. Neither of us were fans of teriyaki sauce so we opted the other option instead and honestly it was a good thing. The fish was fragrant from the grill and just nicely seasoned as the saltiness brings out the fish's natural sweetness. For a person to finish this on their own would probably take a little bit of a challenge but it was jsut enough for two adequately sized apetite girls.
