Lunch with mom OK Jan 04, 2016

Rather than stay at home during the holiday, mother decided to bring us out to spend some quality time together. She's never been to Nu Sentral before so we decided to go there only she detoured and went to Sooka Sentral instead because we were craving for some good pub food. Oddly enough it was only the early afternoon so it was kind of crazy to be having heavy pub food but we dined there anyway. 

 
To share, we ordered the Caeser salad that came with two pieces of toasted french bread. This was alright but nothing too crazy to should about even if I did like the anchovy slices that added a nice flavour to the salad. However I wasn't too pleasedwith the hard boiled egg that was beyond cooked. 

 
Then because I am a sandwich person, I ordered the club sandwich that came with a side of fries. The side was normal however nothing as good as the fries you can get a any McDonald's. Howeverthe main sandwich was pretty good because it was filled with a lot of different fillings layered nicely with a heavy slather of mayonnaise. This was share between three people and it was more than enough for just two actually.

 
Being the carnivores that we are, we also got the meat platter that consists of roasted pork belly, ribs and also pork sausages. While I was quite excited about this because really, who doesn't enjoy a plate of nothing but meat. However the pork belly was mediocre and the ribs were slightly on the dry side. Then the sausage was like any you can purchase yourself at the supermarket so that too was lack lustre.

Will we return, probably but most definitely will not be the first choice should we decide to venture out for something to eat.

Marriage Brunch Smile Dec 15, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood

A friend of my mom's recently got registered and as a treat, the happy couple decided to bring us to lunch. It was my first time at Noble House and I could sort of understand why they chose to have lunch there. 

 
This was the four season starter. There was deep fried shrimp with mayo and something else which I currently can't remember anymore. Although the decoration of it looked rather exciting, the food was merely mediocre at best. Which explains why I could not remember what the rest of the other four things were.

 
They also ordered one whole steamed chicken. Now this I remembered it being pretty good because the meat was succulent without being dry, plus it has super good flavour. Most people at the table said it had a 'chicken' taste which I really didn't understand. But everyone really enjoyed this dish and finished it all up. 

 
Then there's this super decadent and luxurious beancurd dish. Usually I wouldn't be too interested in anything beancurd related because it's just not my favourite. But this dish changed my mind and I believe it had everything to do with the thick & slightly heavy-bodied sauce. I could eat this with a bowl of rice and be very happy the end of the meal. Everyone loved this dish too and not a single drop of sauce was left behind. 

 
And then there's the fish dish. This was pretty amazing too because the Soon Hock was succulent, crunchy and very juicy which proves how fresh it was before being served to our table. However I think what made it even more amazing was the sweet soya sauce that had been steamed with the fish. I loved it a lot especially when poured over my portion of fish and eaten with a little bit of rice.

 
Finally, no proper chinese meal is considered complete until this dish arrives, braised mushroom with assorted seafood. There are abalone slices, fish maw, mushrooms and also dried oysters braised in a very decadent sauce which reminded me a lot of the sauce that came with the beancurd. I really liked this dish too and mopped up most of the sweet but also very heavily flavoured golden liquid of a sauce. Everyone at the table loved it too.

Will we return on a regular occasion, we probably will however I am not too sure when. Can't wait till we do.

Rice. Smile Dec 14, 2015

Categories : Japanese | Restaurant | Ramen/Udon/Soba

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.

Girls night.  Smile Dec 07, 2015

for some funny reason my best friend was really desperate for a girl's night out. She wanted to spend time together having a good meal, talk and also some drinks. Since we both live rather nearby, we decided to go to KLCC and at first wanted to dine at Svago. Unfortunately the place was fully booked for a function so we had to dine somewhere else instead and opted for Chinoz.

Our previous experience there had been a not so pleasant one, however we were willing to give it another chance. We do like the ambience there, especially when it isn't crowded nor filled with big families. This gave us a good chance to have a nice conversation without having to yell at each other from across the table.

With our drinks ordered, we looked through the menu and decided to just order food tapas style to share as none of the mains really appealed to us. Plus we prefer eating like this as it gives us a chance to try more different things. 

 
We ordered the fried calamari. This was super good as it was hot and crisp which is a clear sign that it was freshly fried - with a squeeze of lemon and dipping it into the mayo that it came with, this was satisfying. Plus the squid tasted fresh unlike the frozen kind so I give them props for this dish.

 
We also ordered the grilled merguez sausage. The portion was slightly bigger than we imagined but then again, who would really complain about more food anyways. This tasted really good as the sausage was perfectly grilled and has a nice herby flavour. Plus it came with some kind of sauce which until today I am unsure what it is, but eating the sausage with it gave you quite a mouthful of flavour.

This is a must-try.

 
Then because we were indulging in dinner & drinks for the night, we also ordered the soft shell crab tempura. This was an absolute love because the batter was perfectly crisp, nicely flavoured and the crab was still juicy on the inside. We finished this up almost instantly, but we actually took our time to chat and nibble while we sipped on our drinks.

Buffet Smile Dec 07, 2015

There was one weekend, mom wanted to bring us for a good lunch and decided that Lemon Garden buffet was the best option. Plus a really close friend of hers has  memebership card that offers a 25% off the actual price which is great. 

Be prepared that the place will be very crowded because it is the weekend. So it will be a good idea to make a reservation beforehand and also, do not be late as they will only hold your table for fifteen minutes maximum. But the amount of choices and food you get to eat there will be well worth it, because the lunch session lasts from 12pm to 4pm. (;

 
This is the cold cuts section where they also provide different selection of cheeses and also breads. I went a little too heavy on this section because I really liked the cold cuts + cheese, especially the smoked salmon and brie cheese. However the breads were slightly stale because it has been left on the counter for quite a while I presume. 

 
This was my first round of food, giving my stomach some time to wake up to all of the food around me first. Plus it wasn't long after my plate was left untouched where the serves will come to take it away. Service there is top-notch. 

 
If you're feeling for something Italian, they provide a section for that too. They have the usual salad and also very standard roasted vegetables in olive oil. Also pastas are readily available too and the best thing is, the plate of pasta is cooked to order. 

 
There's also the Asian corner where they have chinese, malay and indian cuisine. All of which tastes really good, but too filling so I don't indulge too much in this to save stomach space for the main star.

 
One thing about Lemon Garden buffet that is really worth the price tag is the seafood/sashimi section. There is plenty on offer and they are always incredibly fresh. Mussels are great without any fishy smell, they also have scallops which are nicely succulent too and one thing I have never thought they would provide is the boiled crayfish.

Also, they have a lot of sashimi such as salmon, tuna, butterfish, all freshly sliced at the bar. All in generous thick portions too so you can eat it to your heart's content. 

Then there is the oysters which are freshly shucked throught the entire dining session so you do not have to worry that you won't get any. They also provide lemons, wasabi and also tabasco for your seafood. 

 
All my seafood & sashimi super fresh and of the best quality - I had plenty rounds of this. As expected of Shangri-La. Definitely a good buffet spread and place to dine at if you are in for a splurge.
