Deep Fried Chicken Wings Smile Nov 19, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood | Noodles

Despite restaurant 52 being super far from KL and the drive there can be a little nerve-wrecking, especially if there's an unexpected jam. However it would be a crime to not dine there if by chance we were around that area or had free time to spare. Just the fried chicken wings alone would have me drive there if the craving for it is strong enough.

 
Unlike other restaurants where their chicken wings have been marinated with 'nam yu' paste, the one at restaurant 52 is done differently. I do not know what it's been marinated in however the skin is always super crispy and flavourful.

Based on what mom told me, it's coated in some sort of special salt seasoning & also spring onions, garlic and chili padi for some extra flavour. It sounds a bit redundant to do that since the chicken is already cooked, yes it does but you will not think so when you do try it. 

Whenever we order a large batch of this, it wouldn't be long before the entire plate is cleared of any signs of food because it is that good. Imagine freshly fried chicken that is really fragrant from the extra little seasonings with super crispy skin, heaven in a bite.

THAI Smile Nov 19, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Thai | Restaurant | Seafood

I'm probably repeating myself for the millionth time but thai food is definitely one of my favourite cuisines ever. However to find good and afforadable one around town is actually more challenging than one would assume. But when I do find one then I am always going back to have my fix of spicy and sour thai food, SongKhla is one of those places.

 
A definite order whenever we dine there is their Manggo Salad because it's amazing. The mango is nicely sour-ish with crunch bits from the peanuts and also dried shrimp. Then there's also a nice kick from the bird's eye chilli that is added into the mix and the raw onions too. 

 
Then there's the Chiang Mai Chicken and it is seriously the BEST dish from the restaurant. The chicken pieces are nicely deep fried to crispy perfection before being tossed in the creamy curry. Although the meat is supposed to be the star of the dish which it sort of is, but the curry sauce is also amazing. Perfectly creamy and also spicy, flavourful bite each time especially when poured over steaming hot white rice. 

Just writing about the food at SongKhla makes me crave for it all already. Do try their chicken, you won't regret it!

Big Family Dinner  Smile Oct 06, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood

This restaurant is a favourite place of my entire family. Although it is a little far from where we stay, we'd still drive all the way to have our dinner there. Not only is the food good, the service is amazing and also the food is not overly priced for the amazing quality in taste and portion that is given to us. 

 
Something that is a MUST order is their steamed Kampung Chicken. The meat is tender but not mushy and the sauce that it comes with is not overly salted, but just nice & flavourful. Plus the mixture of ginger, garlic, green onions that comes with this dish makes the chicken taste even better especially when eaten with white rice. 

 
Another thing that we really like to order is their Curry Fish Head with extra tao fu pok to absorb all the sauce. They serve this in a huge claypot filled up to the brim in bubbling curry sauce with lots of vegetables, fish head meat and also tao fu pok. The sauce is spicy and also slightly creamy without tasting like too much of coconut milk.

 
This dish is my ABSOLUTE FAVOURITE. It's the Four Heavenly Kings Vegetable Stir-Fry in Belacan. Whenever I order this at other restaurants, they use chilli boh rather than sambal belacan which results in the vegetable being doused in oil and lacking of any flavour. However here they use sambal belacan so it's very flavourful, plus they add lots of other ingredietns such as dried prawns and shallots to make the sauce even more delicious.

Almost everything that we have ever ordered from Wan Jia is super good. There is NOTHING that we were ever disappointed with and considering the many establishments these days, this is saying a lot.

Thai food galore!  Smile Sep 18, 2015

I've probably said this a million times before and I'll say it again; Thai food is one of the best food there ever will be. The flavours are always out of this world and although spicy, there's always an added kick which brings a nice surprise.

We discovered Songkhla by accident really. After craving for something spicy for a long time, we attemtped to try a restaurant that was completely new in hopes to be pleasantly surprised. And we were, very much so, which is why we will always go back to this restaurant for the same things. 

 
As always, a must order whenever we're at a Thai restaurant is the Mango Kerabu Salad. One way to tell if the restaurant is going to be a great one is by how well their salad is and this, was fantastic! 

They were not stingy in any way. There was plenty of peanuts and dried baby shrimp for crunch & also added flavour. Plus the dish as a whole had a great kick of spiciness and sourness as well. A great start to our meal. 

 
So for the main dishes, we ordered the Steamed Siakap with Chillies, Garlic and Lime sauce. This was amaaaaazing! The dish came in a steel dish and served over blazing hot charcoals, so this way the sauce remains hot even as we dine.

Every spoonful of the 'soup' had a great punch of spicy, garlicky and sour flavours that explodes in your mouth. Plus the fish was incredibly fresh as the meat was nicely juicy and also tender. One can never go wrong with this dish and Songkhla did an amazing job.

 
Something that had come recommended by the waiter is their Chiang Mai Curry Chicken. Truly it was one of the best dishes I've tried from this restaurant because of how fragrant the curry is. Plus the sauce is incredibly thick and creamy from what I presume to be the coconut milk which adds a whole new depth of flavour.

The chicken meat is incredibly tender too. It's crispy from being deep bried before it is tossed into the curry where the exterior just soaks up all the sauce and infuse maximum flavour in each bite. This is a must try if anyone ever visits Songkhla because each time we ordred this, it is as good as the first time we tried it! 

 
One of our favourite to order is also the Stir-Fried Paku in Belacan. To no surprise that Songkhla cooked this to our preference too. But in comparison to the other three dishes, this was only so so even if the belacan flavour was strong. 

This is one of our favourite Thai restaurants to visit regularly because the price is also reasonable with generous portions. Go, give them a try! :3

Best Dim Sum Smile Dec 08, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Dim sum | Porridge | Private Party

There are some days, especially a Sunday, where all I want is just to have a really indulgent breakfast. And often times my brain + stomach asks only for dim sum - not just any dim sum though, it has to be from one of the best places ever and that is Jin Xuan.

The one thing that's slightly negative is the crowd, especially on weekends. You have to wait about 15-20 minutes usually and easier to get a table when you're in a small party of maybe three or four people. However that's easily overlooked once you tuck into your mountainful of orders.

 
My absolute must-order when I am there is the Loh Mai Kai. The rice is soft & sticky with nice sweetness. The chicken that comes with one portion is huge and also the mushroom + lap cheong that comes with is always nicely flavoured. I can finish two portion of this easily if I don't eat antyhing else. 

 
Then there is the egg tarts. Although most of the time it is not fresh-out-of-the-oven, it is still very good because the custardy part is just nicely sweet withouth being too firm. With that in mind the pastry is also beautifully crusty which makes the bite of this almost heavenly. 

 
and then the main thing that keeps me coming back (among the other amazing things from this place) is the Brinjal. IT IS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOD, especially if you're lucky to get the portion that is freshly cooked. I don't know how but they stuff the brinjal to the brim with fish paste and still remains juicy. Plus I really love how the brinjal is crisp on the outside but meltingly soft on the inside.

Now I wish I lived nearer to Jin Xuan so I can get my dimsum fix any time.
