Hi Tea @ Botanical Smile Aug 17, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant | Pizza/Pasta

Recently , I tried out high tea at botanical at Bangsar Village 2.

 
The spread, although simple, was really really good. Variety was aplenty.

 
The chocolate cakes were nice! It was rich in chocolate flavour and was soft, not overbaked. Awesome.

 
Macaroons and marshmallows. The macaroons were a tad too sweet for my liking, but the texture was perfect, no complaints.

 
Various little bites, which tasted very, very good.

 
I especially liked the bun with the sausage filling in it. It was very well done, with the juicy sausage and tasty pastry.

I definitely had a good high tea lol

Gao Ren Guan experience Smile Aug 17, 2012   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Seafood

In the heart of Puchong lies this place called the "Gao Ren Guan", which is a restaurant where I find tasty food at reasonable prices.

 
The backdrop shows their signature dishes. Especially when you're hungry, don't be surprised to see saliva drooling down unknowingly! Haha

 
Their Hong Kong Kailan stir fry with garlic. The garlic was nice and was not burnt, and the vegetables were sliced into half, which made it easier to eat. The vege was clean and fresh, and was tasty. Not too oily.

 
I highly recommend their stir fry pork with ginger and leek. The meat was tender and a good point to note was all were lean! Its hard to find restaurants that won't add a piece or two of fat meat, and it was a pleasant surprise. I personally am not a fan of leek, and I found the dish more than palatable. I enjoyed the juicy meat, which did not have an overwhelming ginger or leek taste.

For a concept restaurant, I think Little pantry does very very well. It is warmly designed, and its food is also exquisite. lol

 
I LOVE the hot chocolate there. Reminds you of spiderman? The counter for drinks put the hot syrup and made it look like a spiderweb. The hot chocolate is RM8.90, and is thick, not unlike thick milo. It is sweet but not overly sickening sweet, and its froth also tastes as delicious as it looks lol

 
The blueberry cheesecake (RM8.90) is also HEAVENLY. Its blueberry filling is just nice, not too sweet, not under.The chocolate piece at the top just adds a lovely twist to the flavour. The icing is not too much as you can see, and it made for a lovely tea. smile

PiccaDilly, a nice place to be  Smile Jan 29, 2012

Categories : Malaysian variety | Western variety | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops

I've been at Picca Dilly several times now, and it has never failed to impress me. The portion is huge (or at least, reasonable), the price is always fair, and the taste is good as well. Besides that, the service is not too slow.

Today, I shall introduce to you some of the food from various catagories.

I don't have pictures, but if you like mushroom soup, theirs is pretty tasty, and comes with a piece of garlic bread.

 
Turkey ham pizza is around RM18 if I'm not mistaken. Full of cheese and turkey ham, the pizza is fully loaded, and is awesome tasting in the mouth lol

 
Normal white rice with rendang chicken I think. Chicken piece is big (not your small puny chicken), and with crackers as well. Price around RM6-8

 
Kung bao chicken from the chinese category. usually people complain chicken pieces are scarce when you eat out, here the portion is generous.

 
Hokkien mee. One of my favourite dishes of all times. Here its not too oily, and the portion comes with generous amount of prawns, fishcakes etc too. minus the pork lard, of course tongue

 
a huge pot of briyani king special (something like that). has both mutton and chicken meat. definitely a mouthful, and quite a lot for a girl like me. price about RM10.50.

 
Nasi Briyani Kambing. My favourite (I like lamb). The lamb portion in that little bowl is generous, and the taste really "kao" (tasty). If you're a lamb lover, a definite must try.

 
Mango jelly pudding dessert. Nice. They have a variety of desserts from your average ice kacang to cendols, lo han guo and much more.

The staff there are friendly as well, and some even know every single item on the menu! say when you tell them "no 85", they'll confirm (example) : nasi ayam" and its usually correct! Salute lol

There is also a nice bridge like structure where when lighted up at night is nice for photography. Verdict: A nice place for food, company and drinks too.
 
Recommended Dish(es):  Turkey ham pizza,Nasi Briyani Kambing,briyani king special
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM12(晚餐)

Power beef noodles! Smile Jan 17, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Restaurant | Halal

I LOVE beef noodles. There are not that many, since many Chinese don't consume beef. And among the few who sell beef noodles, they are either not tasty enough, stingy with ingredients, or simply are not appetizing enough.

Which is why Restaurant Tangkak Beef was such a surprise to me. At RM5.50/small, RM6.50/medium and RM7.50/large, this is definitely THE PLACE to go for beef noodles.

 
The pictures you see are the medium bowls. This is the pure beef (no intestines/tendons etc) + beef balls. The beef chunks were huge, soft and tasteful (if there is such a word!). Every bite brought only satisfaction and along with the laksa noodle, could not be any better.

 
The beef noodle soup (with intestines, liver, tendon etc). Just like the one above, the soup was rice and delicious, the beef noodles and ingredients was generous, and the beef slices were just to perfection. Good till the very last drop!

Power beef noodles, thats what it is. Haven't tasted such a great one since Pho @curve. Ps: service is great too, you'll be greeted with "thank you boss" (in mandarin) when you leave the shop. makes you feel like a king! lol
