This restaurant came recommended from a friend so we thought of trying it one night since we were around the area. We arrived a little after dinner time and to our surprise, there was quite a crowd there already. So we automatically assume that the food would be very good. 

However service was kind of bad - but I am giving them the benefit of a doubt since the crowd was rather overwhelming. Especially for a restaurant their size. But still, it took all of us five minutes each to catch a waiter's attention. When we finally got someone to take our order, we just speed ordered cause all of us were dying of hunger already.

 
I specially ordered the Salted Egg fried Pumpkin. This dish is supposedly a favourite of mine bcause I've had it elsewhere and it's just super delicious, plus I can never say no to salted egg yolk anything. However it wasn't as good as I expected cause there was not much salted egg yolk flavour and the pumpkin was still hard, although mostly crispy on the outside from being deep fried. Everyone else liked it but personally was not really that good to me. 

 
Just for something to munch on before the actual food arrived, we got the chicken feet kerabu salad. It was just as one would expect it to be - cold, crunchy, spicy and sour. Though honestly there isn't much to shout about this dish except it was good enough to keep us sated before the food arrived. 

 
Then finally the main dish arrived and it was the bean paste steamed tilapia. My favourite way of having fresh fish is steamed and most of the time is with this seasoning. Although the first two dishes were only so-so, the fish was surprisingly good. The meat was nice & juicy especially the cheeks which I attacked before anyone else got the chance to.

Out of everything we tried from them, I liked the fish the most and would happily go back just to have it again. However I will consider that only because of the crowd & somewhat subpar service.

Porky OK Nov 18, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

There had been a new restaurant that was on a to-be-tried list. So when we got the chance, mom brought myself and a few friends there to try something that sounded quite interesting especially to a carnivore like myself. 

Apparently the specialty at Champ's Kitchen is pork product, namely their braised pork belly. At least I think it was the belly because the meat was tender and had nice layers of fat. 

 
Anyway, we ordered other things from the menu too like their tofu. I am not sure what this is supposed to be because I wasn't paying attention when it was ordered but it does remind me a ltitle of mapo tofu. Except it has salted fish. Though it was also slightly more on the sweet side and also somewhat more watery than I would have preferred. 

 
Since it's a favourite of mom's to order, we also got some Chicken and... Although it wasn't bad, it was not the best either as we already have tried better ones elsewhere. Plus I am not really a big fan of chicken anyways so I was not exactly into this dish.

 
Then comes the main star of the entire meal which was the braised pork knuckle with chinese wine and also some eggs as a side. Everyone at the table loved this because the meat was very tender and almost melted in your mouth instantly when you take a bite. I particularly liked the egg because it's absorbed the flavour of the sauce without being so overcooked that it is hard. 

However the entire meal, I was only about fifty percent pleased with it. Based on personal preference I would most definitely not pick this place as a first choice to have a meal at. But everyone else that ate really liked it so do give Champ's kitchen a try especially if you enjoy braised pork meats.

Hong Kong Lunch OK Nov 17, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles

I have probably said this before several times but I will say it again - I really really love Hong Kong food. Whether it is authentic or not is subjective however it doesn't make me like the food any less.

Kim Gary's has been a family favourite, especially the one in Sungai Wang plaza since we shop there almost every week at one point. Our go-to place for brunch or lunch will always be Kim Gary's because they offer many different kinds of set lunch that comes with a soup and drink which is super affordable. However I haven't been there in a while and when I got the chance, it was my number one suggestion.

 
A must order whenever I am at Kim Gary's is their shredded pork with mushroom rice, topped with a nicely fried egg. I remember several years ago this dish was super fragrant and the sauce that it comes with was really nice, plus there used to be a nicely generous serving of pork.

However things seems to no longer be the same now as it was only mediocre at best and the egg was overly cooked which means no nicely runny yolk to coat the hot rice. Safe to say I was quite disappointed with my used to be favourite dish. 

 
My aunt decided to order the teriyaki chicken rice, it also coems with a fried egg and some beans. Although this flavour has never been a favourite of mine, I certainly feel like it tasted better than my dish. However the chicken portion was a little small though enough for my aunt who has a smaller appetite than most people. 

At least her egg was nicely runny. 

 
The best dish that day was the Noodles with Herbal Chicken soup that my mother ordered. This was really good because the soup was really well flavoured plus there were quite a lot of chicken bits. Plus I think I really enjoyed the nissin noodles because it was our regular packaged ramen noodle which I often times eat a lot of despite it being quite unhealthy. 

After this experience, I probably feel a little disappointed with Kim Gary's standards as it feels as if it had dropped slightly. However I do have hopes that other branches would be bette and other dishes would taste better than my usual.

Chicken Gallore OK Nov 02, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Burgers / Sandwiches | BBQ

I remember one saturday afternoon just after getting my manicure. The mother and I were walking towards our usual restaurant to get some dessert when we saw this place. At first we were really unsure about trying because neither of us are really fans of chicken to begin with.

Still for some odd reason we entered and before we knew it, the both of us already had food brought to our table. We were still rather full from an earlier breakfast so we decided to just get something to share.

 
We got the mushroom soup in a bread bowl. This was my choice because I could almost never ever resist a good soup and also, the fact that it came served in a bread bowl was a win for me.

Though the soup seemed more like the canned mushroom soup rather than in-house made, I do like having lots of chunks of toasted bread to dip in it. Only I wish it came a little more seasoned since I found this to be a tad bit bland. 

Aesthetically it was good though. 

 
We also got the grilled chicken (thigh) with what I assume to be kebab. This was pretty god too although the meat was a little bit small even if it's just for a single person. But the flavours was alright and the mother liked it.

However we were not a fan of the side salad because of the sauce it came with. It's just weird and not to our liking at all. But the mash potato was pretty alright but lacked seasoning, at least to our tastes.

Not a bad place to have a meal, though it wouldn't be my first choice.

Thai dinner  OK Oct 30, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Restaurant

After getting a manicure done at Wangsa Walk, my mother decided that it's just best to eat something there rather than search for a place elsewhere. Although the number of restaurants around were plenty but we have tried a few that proved to be quite disappointing thus far. But when we saw Cili Puah, we thought of giving it a shot since we've never tried it before.

 
As always we would order a plate of Mango Kerabu Salad. Although the portion served here was a little on the small side, it was pretty good in my opinion. The fruit was crisp and also sour, plus there was a nice spice from the marinade used. 

 
We also got the Pad Thai. The one here serves it with glass noodles which I quite liked but the mom thinks this was mediocre at best. Perhaps it was lacking some more flavour because it was a little on the bland side. 

 
The Tom Yum however made up for the less than satisfactory starters. This bowl of soup was spicy and also incredibly sour which was up to our desired taste. I couldn't get enough of this and am still thinking about it even now. 

Although the rest of the dishes was only so-so, the tom yum soup is definitely worth going back for to dine at Cili Puah. Maybe the other dishes that is served will be better too.
