Do you know there is a cafe specializing in selling KL style Hokkien Meein Sunway Pyramid? Well, I didn't know till I came here with my friend who loves Hokkien Mee. For those Penangites, this is not the Prawn Mee but what Penangites call "Hokkien Mee." Initially, when I first came to KL, I was confused over this.

The prices here are quite reasonable at RM 12-13 per plate which is somewhat similar to what we have at the kopitiam outside except that the portion is less here.

The weird thing is that my friend's brother doesn't seem to like Hokkien Mee so we had fried bihun Hokkien Mee style. It has big prawn and cabbage.

My favourite was the eggy Claypot Lao Shu Fan which was fragrant and delicious. The egg is is simply amazing as it covers the noodles.We also order the Sui Kow (Prawn Dumplings) which was filled to the brim with meat. I did not taste much prawns though. Most importantly it was not oily.

 
The belacan fried chicken is quite ok, but a little too salty for me as I hate salty food.

 
The Cantonese Noodles was quite ok but admittedly I didn't like too much hor fun.

After trying the food here during a food review with Open Rice, I was so amazed that I brought my friend's family here today. We initially booked a tatami room but changed to the other room at the end and joined 2 tables together.

Ramen Salada (RM 16.90)

The Ramen Salada here has very fresh combination of vegetables like shredded cucumber, omelette, carrots, cherry tomato, bacon ham and seaweed. The ramen is perfectly boiled and not soggy at all.

 
Okonomiyaki (RM 17.90)

This is the Japanese version of pancake with pork and bonito flakes and fried till crispy. I kind of ordered the wrong one because I wanted to order the Tonpeiyaki that was omelette with cabbage and without rice.

 
Okonomi Fu Ika Tempura (RM 15.90)

The tempura giant octopus with bonito flakes are simply fabulous. The flour are just nice and enough and not too much. There was overload of mayonaise on top too.Hokkai Kamameshi (RM 36.90)

This rice inside a stone pot requires 20 minutes of cooking. The ingredients are crab legs, scallops, seaweed. It was quite delicious and not cooked till overly burnt.Nagashi Somen Setto (RM 27.90)

This is the highlight of the night. In Japan, they usually have the soba flowing down the bamboo. The soba is to be placed inside the machine to make it icy cold and eaten with the soy sauce and also chopped spring onions, shredded cucumber, baby mandarin oranges, cherry tomatoes and also sliced cucumbers that are made to so thin to be crispy. I think the price is very reasonable as it includes tempura containing 2 ebi, eggplant and another item.

 

 
Jumbo Kakiage (RM 9.90)

This is vegetable tempura which are fried till very crispy. I love this as it contains a lot of vegetables such as carrot, lotus root, greens and onions. It is way better than the one made by the Pisang Goreng Stall Hawker.

 
Dashimaki Tamago (RM 12.90)

I am not a big fan of tamago but this is served warm instead of cold like what the Koreans do. It is cut in smaller slice than the ones I had before. Very simple to please a simple person.

 
Torikawa Chicken Skin Skewers (RM 7.80)

This is done in a yakitori style resulting in crispy feel of oil.

 
Pork Belly with Spring Onion (RM 9.80)

The pork belly is quite ok though not as tender as expected but thank god it was not towards the oily side.

 
Potato Mentaiko Yaki (RM 13.90)

Despite not being a potato fan, surprise, surprise, surprise, this has become one of my favourite grilled potato. Probably because they grill it together with cheese and fish roe which when melted together, is a delight to the soul.

 
Salmon Teriyaki (RM 17.90)

We are a big fan of salmon so naturally we cannot avoid salmon in a Japanese restaurant. The salmon teriyaki is quite delicious and not too coarse or too dry. The tenderness is maintained. It is also not too salty.

 
Yuzu Shabetto (RM 9.90)

Whenever I frequent this restaurant, I cannot miss my favourite citrus sherbet. You can be assured there was no colouring used as the ice-cream is white in colour. I like the taste of the pieces of citrus inside which opened up the senses.

 
Matcha de Roru (RM 14.90)

I tend to like to eat anything in crepe so this is again one of my favourites. It is rice cake containing red bean and green tea ice cream. The folds are done very neatly and it goes nicely into my small mouth.

 
Our entire bill came up to RM 240.85 only with so many dishes! Definitely saved more money than eating elsewhere and leaving this place more than satisfied with the variety.Details:

We were trying to find dinner place at Jaya Shopping Centre and ended up eating here again though I was not that keen to eat here. After all, the price here is the most reasonable among all the other restaurants at the top level in this mall. This is the third time I come here. The second time was with another friend whereby we ate white tom yam served in very small portion and lacking the spiciness and sourness of tomyam and the kangkung being too sweet. Anyway we came here because my friend wanted to fulfill craving of beef noodle soup. I think the only edible food here is the curry with chapati.

The Beef Noodle Soup at about RM 17.90 was something I have never seen before with the soup being too dark as though they poured the whole bottle of black dark sauce inside. The few thin pieces of beef were just normal. I prefer Vietnamese Pho in any vietnamese stall or cafe. My friend poured the whole plate of dried chilli flakes inside and ate till he was sweating all over.

 
I had the Siamese Laksa with green curry for about the same price of the beef noodles. The curry had too much santan and I am not a milk person and am too health conscious. There were potatoes, brinjals, carrot and chicken inside. The rice flour noodles were hardened and crumped or balled together.

 
The Thai Herbal Drink (RM 6.90) : Has a little weird taste for my friend but for me it was quite ok just that it was a little sour.

We were in Pavilion walking around looking for a place to eat since my friend was staying opposite at Novotel. I just realized that Novotel is just opposite Pavilion and so convenient to walk across.

Though there was a lot of mosquitoes at the end corner table, the waiters were very attentive and observant and even brought a mini fan / ventilator. 

I had a Leffe which was served in a typical Leffe glass.The German Frankfurters were quite ok, thankfully not that salty like typical German sausages. I totally like mashed potato with sauerkraut and parsley which are sourish taste.

The side salad is quite tasty with balsamic sauce.

Rayong Thai  Smile Jan 17, 2016

We were looking for the Korean restaurant in Taman Desa and could not find it despite making a few rounds; then voila, I laid my eyes on Rayong Thai cafe which has alfresco dining and also air-conditioned part.

The place is quite airy despite having the kitchen right in front. Inside, one can see Thai god altars. All these assured you that you are dining in the correct place whereby you can eat genuine Thai food cooked by Thai nationalities.

For me, the benchmark of taste for any Thai restaurant is easily The Pad Thai but once I find it horrible, you can be assured there is no second visit.Tomyam Set (RM 18.90)

Since we ordered the 1 pax set dinner of Tomyam and rice, it came together with a Tako Thai Pudding with coconut topping which was amazing. It even has corn inside the pudding.

 
The tomyam was spicy and sour enough with a lot of vegetables and big prawns and octopus.

It also comes with Lemongrass drink which was ok but not too fragrant.

 
Pad Thai (RM 9.90)

The Pad Thai is simply spectacular! It was spicy enough, moist enough but not too moist to the extent of being balled up, with a lot of nuts, bean sprouts, a few big prawns and octopus.

 

 
Surprisingly, my entire meal only came up to RM 30.53, not bad for an a/c place.
