Kimchi stew  Cry Sep 29, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant | Noodles | Private Party

The first time I tried the Korean Street Cafe is at their first outlet in the SS 15 Subang Jaya right opposite the Taylors college, and next to the Subway sandwich. They are one of the few restaurant or café which hangs around for a long time and is doing better than before. The Korean Street Cafe is one place that is perfect for non-halal Korean food lovers. The menu comprises of still some very authentic Korean dishes, but with a twist of the choice of ingredients. Instead of the usual pork there is kimchi stew with seafood in it. It was an interesting difference to what was normally served in the usual kimchi stew. Well a lot of the ingredients were replaced with local ingredient but it was nonetheless palatable. The ingredients are not so generous like before but were still tasty and good enough to satisfy the taste bud. It used to have big chunks of seafood and tuna which I can never forget but right now, it is served with fewer of those. The outlet in Sunway Pyramid is located at the asian avenue right next to the tako balls. The area is very secluded and can be quite a challenge to locate if unfamiliar with the layout in the mall and the avenue.

Waffle ice cream Cry Sep 27, 2013   (Related Review)
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Bar & Pub | Steaks / Chops | Seafood

Many friends recommended the waffle ice cream in Brussels. When I finally had the chance to order one and trying it, I wished I would have gone to the A&Ws instead. The ice cream was okay, not too bad but really nothing to shout about. The toppings were generous and the sweetness is lovely and would be very much to the liking of many sweet lovers. The waffle was really bad, with batter flour that is really thick and not crispy on the outside. It lack fragrance and aroma too. I really wont recommend this to anyone unless one can't wait to proceed elsewhere for dessert.

Inconsistency  Cry Sep 06, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Western variety | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops | Noodles

Having said this many times and still standing by to the conclusion about these fusion restaurants is that whenever they start to gain some bit of popularity, they started localizing themselves. The ingredients for some of the western or fusion dishes are replaced with the similar kind in Malaysia and by doing so really deteriorate the quality of the dish itself. Even when not looking at sophisticated dishes, simple things like the mash potatoes can be quite a mess for them as well. The problem at this and some of the many other fusion restaurants is that they try so hard to manage so many dishes, both western and asian. In order to offer the extension of varieties on their menu, they need to have all ingredients ready in case there is a order at the kitchen. But what happens when no one ordered what’s prepared, or when something is not the best seller at the restaurant. When it is not a common dish to order, the chances is high that the ingredients would have been kept for quite a while already. So the lesson I adapted from this is to go for the common dishes many people would order. That way, at least the food is still in good form of taste and shape. I had a horrible experience when dining at the station one usj outlet and vowed never returning to it. It must be fate cause I had to visit the station one in damansara the next day. I guess these fusion chains already established their reputation so well whenever there is one in any enclave, it would be the popular meeting point. I stand firm on my verdict after ordering the same thing I always ordered. The chicken was dry and almost loosing the flavour of chicken and the mashed potato is really sourish.

 

 
At least the mushroom soup is much better than the one in usj.

 
The pumpkin soup would be the joke of the day as it did not taste pumpkin to me at all. More like a mix of remaining pumpkin soup that is insufficient in amount to be served being topped to the amount to be served with some of their soup of the day or some sort. Blindfold me and I won’t be able to tell if there is pumpkin in it

The mushroom soup tasted really ordinary and almost like they are serving what was cooked two days ago. The meal was so bad, I vow not to return to this outlet.

Dimsum for breakfast Cry Sep 05, 2013   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Chinese | Restaurant | Steaks / Chops | Seafood | Noodles

China Court Holdings Sdn Bhd probably one of the worst Chinese restaurant I have ever been. Called me brutal, but I have got to be really honest with the dimsum . How so that it suck like that? And coming from a restaurant? That really is rather peculiar how they could have maintained so far. But I should be a bit more fair to them. Honestly, I was only there for the dimsum and roast duck which they are strongly pushing it. Apparently its their current promotion. But really, I wouldn’t want to offer a second chance to try out their other dishes on the menu. A friend told me, “give them a chance, you might not know that lunch and dinner maybe extraordinary”. I gave it a five seconds thought,…..and ,nah…I’m least likely to do that. Well probably if I am ever invited to a wedding dinner held in this restaurant then maybe. But other than that, na-ah….never.
They start of with several fancy appetizers. Chilled appetizers. And not a single one is palatable.

 
Then came deng chai zhuk (porridge), peanuts and fish porridge. If I guessed it correctly, it taste like the nuts or the fish is just being stirred into the same pot of porridge just right before they served it. I mean, both the porridge taste really similar to me.

 
Next is some common dimsum we normally order in any dimsum restaurant or hawker centre. From left to right: loh bak kou (carrot cake), siew mai (steam minced pork), har kao(prawn dumpling), jeng pai kuat(steam pork), oh kok(yam), chee cheong fun char siew and har (steam rice flour with roasted pork and prawn), hor yip fun (lotus leaf rice).
Let’s see carrot cake is all flour and no carrot, steam minced pork for some reason is hard. Needs more fat choices of meats. The prawn dumpling…don’t even get me started with it. Although I must not forget to mention how incredibly fresh is the prawns. Almost crunchy when chewing it. The rest was nothing impressive and if any readers just needs to go dine in this place. Please skip the lotus leaf rice. I questioned if they re-use the leaf? And if they picked the rice before they cooked it? I can practically taste some harder rice grains in it. As for the leaf…opps..what leaf? There was no leaf fragrant in the rice.
Having to run a restaurant, surely there are some nice things on the menu. Of course there is. I recommend the char siew pau. And the egg tart.

 
Forget about the Shanghai xiu long pau. Its true what they said, a picture is worth a thousand words. Which in this case, comes in really handly. But to be very honest here…I kind of ran out of vocabulary to describe what went wrong.

 
Then there is some other fancy stuffs which I probably give credit to the innovative attempt to be creative. But if you ask me, if a basic siew mai is not yet great, no harm to just leave the creativity part out huh?

 
Just for the sake of finding something worth writing and recommending, I also tried the jeong sau mee (longevity noodle). Apparently handmade, and to be honest not too bad either. I quite fancy the texture of the noodle.

 
Last but not least, is the promotional dish which they recommended-the roasted goose. And I say, it was no biggie…good but not enough to remind customers to go back for more.
