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.

YUMS Smile Jan 07, 2016

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.

Japanese Lunch OK Jan 06, 2016

Sometimes all that my mind can think of throughout the day is food and what kind I want to eat. Often times I find myself craving for things like Thai, Banana Leaf Rice or Japanese. The latter is usually the one I can get to eat easier than the other two.

Thankfully my mom usually understands my crazy food cravings and would bring me to eat at restaurants that she's tried before & thinks are good. Kuriya is one of those places that we opted to have lunch at one weekend. 

 
Because I was on a journey to eat slightly healthier, we ordered this simple salad. It was actually pretty alright and I think that I thought so because it came with a few slices of avocado. Give me some of that and I'm happy. Plus the sesame dressing always makes any salad taste super awesome, just because its the Japanese sesame sauce. 

 
And because I cannot stop myself from ordering sushi, we ordered this california roll to share. For the price that we paid it was alright but really nothing to shout about - seems like I can get the same and maybe even better from my favourite sushi place. 

 
To share, we ordered the grilled saba with teriyaki sauce bento set. I actually quite liked this because the entire set came with one good set of meal - there was the fish, rice, agedashi tofu, chawanmushi, miso soup and some fruits. It was good that we only ordered one set or else two would be too much.

While the portion is good, the taste was only so-so. Again its nothing out of the ordinary that you can't just get at another sushi joint, but the ambience is nice so I guess we were mainly paying for that.

More thai Smile Jan 06, 2016

They always say that no one knows you more than your own parent. Which was why my mom brought me to Busaba for lunch with a friend of hers because she knows how much I love having Thai food. And she's given super great reviews of this place, plus after dining there a month or two ago, I can't stop thinking about the food there. So she brought me back there for lunch as a treat again. 

 
A mandatory order whenever we could is the Meng Kiam starters. Usually you would have to wrap the little bits of food in the leaves ourselves, but not here. At Busaba, each portions are individually wrapped for you. So all that we had to do was add the bean paste sauce as much as you like then eat it all in one bite. This is simple but really good.

 
Then again, based on good reviews by the mom, she also ordered these Thai fish cakes. I usually turn away from these whenever I see them because they are never something I like to eat. However I took one piece and found them really good, flavourful plus bouncy and chewy rather than soft. I liked this but would not immediately order it as a first choice. 

 
Another thing that we like to order is Mango Salad. No where I have dined at ever make such good mango salad like Busaba does because they are very generous with all the crunchy toppings and there's super good spice & tangyness. Then as an added bonus for me, it also comes with this giant prawn's head which I always take the liberty to slurp up all the goodness from it. Yummy with a capital Y. 

 
AND MY ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE OF THE DAY! The squid steamed with garlic, chillies and garlic sauce. Although the squid was really good and crunchy, I also really loved the soup that it was swimming in. I kept going back for more and more, even after my mouth was burning from the heat. 

Although the price tag on the food is rather high, the quality of food that we get is very much worth it. Sometimes it is worth to splurge and treat ourselves to a good meal every now and then.
