Hong Kong Food is Love Smile Nov 24, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Stall / Warung | Steaks / Chops

There is nothing much I enjoy more than some good Hong Kong food. Unfortunately around KL its mostly just chinese food and although that's also just as good, sometimes I do prefer something more authentic HK food. My go-to place is Hong Kong Food Culture, especially when I'm doing some shopping around Sungai Wang Plaza which is just next door. 

 
A must order when I'm dining there is the Century & Salted Egg with Pork Porridge. I don't know how they do it but their rice porridge is always silky smooth and any grains of rice has been mushed up - so a bowl of this on a cold rainy day is incredibly comforting. Plus the century egg they add is always really fresh with almost runny & silky yolk which is to die for. 

 
Another favourite is their Pork Belly Braised with Preserved Vegetables. This is my number one order when I'm there because this dish brings me back to my grandmother's kitchen. Not only is the pork incredibly tender but so is the preserved vegetables, both absorbing the flavours of the broth that it has been stewing in for a long period of time.

Usually I do not eat much rice, but when I order this dish I almost always finish the entire plate of rice cause it's that good. However you might have to remind them several times to bring you more sauce cause there will be times where it will be slightly on the dry side. Plus the rice is only worth eating when it's fully doused in the sweet but salty sauce.

Butter Chicken  OK Nov 23, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta | Steaks / Chops | Special Occasion Dining

Went visiting a friend that stays around that area and told them that I was craving for some good butter chicken. It's the food that I often times find myself hungry for but then rarely ever find something to satisfy that craving. So they attempted to try by bringing me to Decanter. 

 
No surprise that I ordered myself a plate of Butter Chicken with Rice set. Actually it wasn't bad because the sauce is really creamy but had a hint of spiciness to it from the chilli that they add to it. The chicken was also nicely crunchy from being deep fried before hand so it goes really well when it's coated with the thick butter sauce.

The only downside is there isn't enough of the sauce, even though I told them three times when I placed my order to have more.

 
My friend ordered the Nasi Lemak that comes with a chicken. Currently cannot remember if it was fried chicken or rendang, but it is one or the other. I tried the rice with the sambal and found this quite good because the rice was very nicely fragrant. Plus the sambal had some really good spice to it but not just spicy in flavour with a hint of sweetness.

A pretty chill place to dine at and will probably be back for more of the butter chicken when I find myself around the area with a strong craving for it. The sauce is good enough to have me going back - only wish they'd give more of that than the rice on my plate.

Eccentric Smile Nov 23, 2015

Although this isn't the place one would expect to get very delicious meals, considering the location and also the decor of the restaurant is just simple. But it was discovered by my mother when she was around the area for work and had lunch here, finding a very chatty boss plus rather odd mixture of ingredients that turns out pretty good.

 
The one thing that's a favourite and must order at KIP Seafood is the Salted Egg Yolk Pumpkin. Its amazing because the pumpkin is braised till its nicely tender then coated with a thick layer of salted egg yolk mixed with some curry leaves to give it an extra depth of flavour. This is really good and everyone that tries this is always pleasantly surprised.

 
Kailan Stir-Fried with Yam. This is also something that made me a little confused when it came recommended by the chef. But it is very good because the flavour of the sauce is incredibly interesting plus the yam is always nicely braised so it's just tender.

 
Then there's the Fish stir-fried with scallions and black dace sauce. This is definitely one of my top three orders when we dine here because it has everything that I like. Usually it is deep fried fish head which is also pretty good but lack meat so we swap that for actual fish fillets instead. Perfectly salted and have just enough of black dace to give an extra flavour, plus the scallions give a nice spring bite too.

Hakka Smile Nov 20, 2015

Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Noodles

My grandparents are true-blue hakka so they often times crave for really good hakka food. Ones where neither of them have to cook themselves so when mom found out about this place, it was immediately the place where we have to bring them. 

 
We ordered the pepper soup with pig stomach & meat. This was really good because the soup packed a really good punch of flavours and had the right amount of spice from the pepper. Everybody at the table loved this and constantly went back for more even though our nose were starting to get runny from the heat of the soup. But this is really really worth it all. 

 
As always we would order the yam abascus because it's a staple hakka dish. But also it isn't easy to come around since most restaurants doesn't prepare this dish due to it's heavy work load with little yield. Although we did like the one served at Goldview, it isn't the best we had so far and was a little small portion wise. 

 
This dish came recommended by the waiter. It's pork intestines with sweet & sour sauce. At first I was quite reluctant to try this because I do not prefer my main dish to be sweet however I gave this the benefit of the doubt. Surprisingly it was actually pretty alright, though I'm sure I'd prefer to have intestines to be cooked simply rather than be covered by lots of complicated flavours. 

 
Just for the grandparents, we ordered vinger pork trotters and expected it to be good or at least up to our standards. What my family is used to is the sauce being very sour, sweet and also spicy. Although this was still quite a little from what we're used to having at home, it is pretty good in our opinion. Though I was more into the pepper soup than this.

MORE THAI Smile Nov 17, 2015

Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Seafood

After getting done with some grocery shopping at my favourite supermarket, I was in the mood for some good thai food. Usually I'd eat at Zanmai but oddly enough I was not feeling the craving for japanese and instead went for something with a little more spice.

So once we paid for our things, momma and I went up to Bangkok House for some good ol' thai food. I haven't eaten there before but she has several times and told me that it was pretty good. Since we were already there I thought why not just give it a try.

 
As always, I ordered a green curry chicken and found this quite satisfying. Not many places do this bowl of goodness justice but the one at Bangkok house was pretty good. It was perfectly creamy and spicy, making me go back for more just for the sauce. However it was a little bit scarce on chicken meat although that was partly the main part of the dish.

 
For an added side, I also ordered their Stir-fried kangkung with belacan. This was pretty good but nothing too much to shout about as I found it to be similar to any other kangkung you can get at other thai establishments.

The service was pretty good that night as there were not too many patrons dining. However there are times were it was a little bit difficult to catch the server's attention as they lurked around a certain area that kept my table out of view. 

Other than that, I think it's a good place to have some thai food. Especially when you are already at One Mont Kiara.
