It was an aunt's birthday that day and we were all craving for good thai food. Since we were around Kepong area, they decided to bring us to try this thai place which they gave quite good reviews of. I went with high hopes because Thai food is really my favourite. 

 
No thai food dinner is complete without ordering Tom Yum Soup and we got a pot of White Seafood tom yum to share. It was as expected and served in a claypot steaming hot. The soup was spicy with a nice touch of sourness. This was pretty good however slightly small portion wise as it only yielded about five bowls of soup at most. But the plus side however, the prawns and squid were very fresh so those added a nice sweetness to the soup. 

 
Instead of the usual mango salad that we'd get, my aunt suggested trying this pickled brinjal that comes with salted eggs. The idea of it was very unusual and when the dish arrived, I was quite put off by how anemic the vegetable looked. Although it did not taste bad and had the soury-spicy kick you would usually get from a mango salad, the spongy pickled brinjal was just not to my liking. 

 
Then because we were all craving for it, we got the steamed squid with garlic, lime and chilli sauce. This was amazing because it had everything that I like. The sauce is super spicy and sour which compliments the succulently sweet squid that was super fresh. I couldn't stop going back for more and more of the sauce that remained hot throughout because of the heat it sat on top of. But the squid never got super crunchy and overcooked which makes this dish the star of the night. Perfect.

There was plenty more on the menu that looks amazing which we have yet to try. So we will most definitely be back for more some time soon.

Over the weekend, my good friend and I met up at Jaya One much earlier than we should for our workshop. We wanted to get lunch and also catch up with all the has happened in each other's life. Since she is familiar with the area, she suggested that we eat at Marufuku because it has affordable prices and also sufficient portion.

So that's where we went and a little after lunch time, there were not that many people so we got a table instantly. A staff came to hand us a menu and gave us some time to go through it. They have plenty of choices and mainly are popular for their udon, however I have never been a fan so I went for their rice bowl instead. 

 
I got the Gyuniku Don with an Onsen Tamago [Rm11]. It's basically sliced beef with a soft boiled egg over rice and it was pretty good I must say. However the meat was lacking some flavour which I compensated with a little soya sauce and also some chilli in oil that was provided on the table. The egg was perfectly runny and coats the rice nicely. 

For an added Rm1, I got a glass of cold green tea. Plus they also provided a small bowl of soup which I am not sure what kind it was, but it was warm and tasted pretty good so I was happy with it. 

They also offer plenty of add-ons at rather affordable prices too but I did not get any of those. However I think you should try when you're there because it's cheap but also tastes pretty good.

Late Night Porridge OK Dec 11, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood

There's something about a bowl of porridge that is super comforting. It can be those flavoured one with meat or preserved eggs, or the teochew style where its just plain porridge with side dishes. That too is super good which I love having especially late at night. 

Which is why Onn Kee's is a great place to have some midnight munchies. All you do is ask fr a bowl of white porridge for each person, then order dishes to go with. 

 
The first dish that was ordered is half a steamed chicken. There really isn't anything to shout about because it just tastes like the kind you can get at any chicken rice shop, only you have this with porridge instead. I'm not the biggest fan of chicken so this wasn't my preference really. 

 
For vegetables we ordered the Stir-Fried Paku with Belacan. This was again mediocre at best but that's only cause the sauce wasn't really what we expected when we asked for belacan. It was powdery & mostly just salty without any other flavour. Though I guess if you eat this dish with the plain porridge then it's pretty alright.

 
The star of the night for me was the black dace braised pork ribs. This dish was super flavourful and the sauce was good especially mixed into the plain porridge. Then the meat was nicely tender so each bite was soft and juicy.

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.

As always whenever my aunt from Singapore comes down for a visit, our entire family on the maternal side always have dinner together. Our first choice is and probably always will be Wan Jia even if the distance there is quite a bit. But we never mind driving a little further just for some good food. 

 
Our first order is the Thousand Island Sauced Pork Ribs. Usually I would prefer marmite rather than this but then at Wan Jia, this dish is freaking amazing that it has fast become a favourite of mine. It's kind of hard to describe the flavours exactly but it's tangy, salty and also slightly sweet. The ribs are always cooked nicely, crispy on the outside while the meat remains nicely juicy. 

 
We also ordered their special Bean Curd braised with Abalone Slices on top. This was everyone's favourite because they loved the sauce that it came with. I however was partial to this only because beancurd was never really something I was crazy about, though I did have two big pieces to myself. It's nice when doused with the sauce and mixed with some white rice. 

 
Another dish that is also a favourite is the Kam Heong Lala. This dish had a good punch of flavours and nice hit of spice from the chili padi that is used. Plus the clams are super gresh so they are juicy while absorbing the flavour of the sauce very well.

 
Then as an added treat for everyone, we got this braised pumpkin with lots of seafood. They have abalone, sea cucumber, dried oysters, mushrooms and fish maw which have all been  braised in a similar sauce to the beancurd dish. This was also pretty good as the filling was very big portion which kept all of us at the table very happy.

So worth dining at Wan Jia every time because the portions are always big and yet the price are not too exurbent while the quality of taste & ingredietns never fail.
