Based on a recommendation by my mom's friend, we made our way to Cheras to try dishes from Eight Treasures restaurant. Considering how hot today was, I really did not want to leave the house so you could imagine how sour my mood was by the time we arrived.

I had no intention nor desire to eat as I sulked and wished to be anywhere but outdoors. However I left feeling a hundred times better becasue the food served was very good.

 
We got fish paste stuffed chillis and it's weird, because the ones we usually get at Yong Tao Fu places uses red chillis. Yet here they served us green and I really really liked them - I don't know how to explain the difference in taste but there just is. Plus it was deep fried and served piping hot, which is just the way I liked these. 

 
This however was not my favourite because it was stir-fried petai with minced pork & bean sprouts. There was just too much of the former for me to enjoy anything about it because every piece of meat stank of the petai which I really could not stomach.

 
And because I wanted some green veggies to compensate the stinky dish, we got ourselve a nice plate of stir-fried HK kailan with garlic. This I liked and probably finished the entire dish myself since the other were more into the petai dish. No complaints coming from me that's for sure.

 
Then came the dish that I really really liked that day was the deep fried fish, one for each of us. I am not a hundred percent sure what kind of fish it was, but it tasted really good because it was well seasond before being deep fried to crisp golden perfect. Almost all the bones could be eaten and the head too because that's how crispy it was. 

Even though I went there expecting the worst because of my sour mood, I do like the food served at Eight Treasures. Would probably return whenever we get the chance to.

Lunch Smile Dec 15, 2015

For lunch after running errands with my friend, we decided to grab something to eat nearby Nu Sentral since we were already there. Plus we wanted to re-visit Brickfields area since it's been a year or two since we had been around there after we were done with college. We saw Chilli Espresso which was very new to us so we decided to give it a try.

 
For me, I got the ulam fried rice with sambal chicken. I actually really liked this because thr rice was very fragrant and also a very substantial portion, not just for a normal eater like me but also a big eater. Then the chicken tasted super good especially with the sambal which was spicy but there's also a subtle sweetness to it which I liked a lot. 

 
My friend ordered the grilled chicken with black pepper sauce. Actually this was pretty good too because I tried some of it and wished I had ordered this instead. The only thing is that I'm not a super fan of chicken so that's why I opted for the rice instead. Though this made me change my mind for a second. 

Although I was a little apprehensive about this place upon entry, but I was pleasantly surprised. Which explained why there was quite a few people already eating there even though it wasn't quite lunch time yet. Will definitely be back to try the rest of the menu and perhaps have some of that chicken again.

Lunch Cry Dec 15, 2015

One day my mom decided to bring the family to this new place for lunch. She had heard reviews from a colleague that the food here was quite good. I was a little apprehensive because sometimes the food ends up being somewhat disappointing. This time however, I was on the fence a little bit. 

 
I can't remember exactly what salad this was. But I remember that I really did not like it because of the fried stuff which I believe was a mixture of shallots and something else. That just made the salad super greasy and gross which one would not ever think would happen when it comes to a salad. After one piece of lettuce, I just turned away and so did my mom.

 
To share we ordered the mushroom carbonara and.... It left little to be desired because the pasta was dry as anything without so much as a hint of cream sauce - at least it wouldn't be too cloying. However there was no flavour save for the tiniest bit of sprinkling of fake cheese on the top. Plus for the price that we paid, the portion was really quite small.

 
The saving grace of our meal was this grilled/roasted half a chicken. The sauce was sweet and also slightly salty which reminded me of teriyaki sauce a little bit, but maybe just a touch bit burnt. It was alright, nothing too much to should about especially the cold fries that came as a side. Though in comparison with the previous two horrible dishes, it was almost like a salvation dish.

It is safe to say that after our terrible experience, food and service wise, we would probably never return. Not only was the food we got sub-par but the wait-staff were just poorly trained and constantly looked like they were constipating or something. That just made everything so much more worst.

Marriage Brunch Smile Dec 15, 2015

A friend of my mom's recently got registered and as a treat, the happy couple decided to bring us to lunch. It was my first time at Noble House and I could sort of understand why they chose to have lunch there. 

 
This was the four season starter. There was deep fried shrimp with mayo and something else which I currently can't remember anymore. Although the decoration of it looked rather exciting, the food was merely mediocre at best. Which explains why I could not remember what the rest of the other four things were.

 
They also ordered one whole steamed chicken. Now this I remembered it being pretty good because the meat was succulent without being dry, plus it has super good flavour. Most people at the table said it had a 'chicken' taste which I really didn't understand. But everyone really enjoyed this dish and finished it all up. 

 
Then there's this super decadent and luxurious beancurd dish. Usually I wouldn't be too interested in anything beancurd related because it's just not my favourite. But this dish changed my mind and I believe it had everything to do with the thick & slightly heavy-bodied sauce. I could eat this with a bowl of rice and be very happy the end of the meal. Everyone loved this dish too and not a single drop of sauce was left behind. 

 
And then there's the fish dish. This was pretty amazing too because the Soon Hock was succulent, crunchy and very juicy which proves how fresh it was before being served to our table. However I think what made it even more amazing was the sweet soya sauce that had been steamed with the fish. I loved it a lot especially when poured over my portion of fish and eaten with a little bit of rice.

 
Finally, no proper chinese meal is considered complete until this dish arrives, braised mushroom with assorted seafood. There are abalone slices, fish maw, mushrooms and also dried oysters braised in a very decadent sauce which reminded me a lot of the sauce that came with the beancurd. I really liked this dish too and mopped up most of the sweet but also very heavily flavoured golden liquid of a sauce. Everyone at the table loved it too.

Will we return on a regular occasion, we probably will however I am not too sure when. Can't wait till we do.

Seafood OK Dec 14, 2015

One evening, my mom decided to bring us out for a treat and she brought us to Loong Foong that is well-known for their seafood. Also rather exurbent price for a regular tai chow place but yet is filled to the brim with customers, especially on the weekends. So be prepared to be sitting amongst a huge crowd and waiting quite a while for your food to arrive. 

 
For starters we got the cheese baked prawns which we AMAZING. It's half a prawn each person because one whole one would be far too cloying and filling for a single person.

The prawn is pretty large in size, stuffed with lots of cream & cheese before baking until the top is nicely golden brown. This tasted sinfully good which I enjoyed and finished up within a minute. Everyone else liked it too and ate it all up before it even got a chance to get cold. 

 
As always with my family, we always have to order claypot braised pork belly with salted fish. This has to be one of our favourite dishes and the one we ordered that night was pretty good. Not the best we've had so far but definitely better than a number of restaurants we have tried at. The flavour is there and there is some salted fish lurking about in the pot, however we prefer an extra punch of flavour. However that's my family's preference.

 
Then of course, we also ordered steamed fish with sweet soya sauce. This was pretty amazing because the fish was nicely cooked, juicy and also very succulent which was perfectly complimented by the sweet sauce. The portion was pretty big for our table however, it is definitely more expensive than the price that we usually pay at our usual restaurants. 

 
Since we were in the mood to indulge, we also order this stewed seafood in pumpkin. I personally feel like the pumpkin was merely the medium to hold the dish and make the entire thing look interesting. With that being said however, this tasted pretty good because the sauce screamed decadence as it was thick and sweet with a hint of the seafood flavours that was braised in it. 

The ingredients that came with it were great. There was plenty of scallops which were pretty big in size, abalone slices that were firm to the bite and also other things that was screaming with luxury. Everyone at the table loved this dish and scooped up all of the sauce, not leaving anything behind. 

Safe to say we left the restaurant feeling very satisfied. However I am not very pleased by the service of the staff, which I guess is due to the amount of customers they had to tend to. Still it did put most of us in a bad mood, not that easily overlooked even if the food is good.
