Seafood OK Dec 14, 2015

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops | Seafood

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.

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.

Rice. Smile Dec 14, 2015

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.

Luxurious Smile Dec 10, 2015

On our way back from a short holiday to Singapore, we stopped at Johor for dinner before making a long drive back home. Plus there is apparently a really good restaurant there which my mom had dine at before and wanted to bring us there. It was one last treat before returning back to our usual routine. 

 
The place looked really good, something that most chinese couples would have their wedding dinner at almost. The staff were quite attentive too though they seem to have a little bit of a struggle when it comes to smiling. But I guess that is easily overlooked by the ambience. 

 
Being quite popular for their roast duck, it would be qite foolish to dine there and not to order it. The roast is brought to the table whole and carved right there before being wrapped into little savoury crepes/pancakes for you with the nice sauce lathered in it. This was pretty good and I ate more than three without even noticing it. 

 
As another added treat and bonus, we got this exurbent dish. The sea cucumber, fish maw, mushroom braised in a super thick sauce that leaves you wanting more. 

 
I cannot remember exactly what fish this was. But it tasted really amazing because of the sauce it was cooked with and  just on the outside layer, it's perfectly caramelized. Despite the nice crust outside, the interior was still nicely juicy. Plus one portion is pretty substantial for a single person and eating it with rice, remember to douse the sauce over it because you know it will be amazing.
