JO'S FAMILY KOREAN RESTAURANT  Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Korean | Restaurant

During one lazy weekend, we stumbled upon this new Korean restaurant when we are looking for Korean Wang BBQ as we were craving for the its homey Sundubu Jigae and would love to be back again.

 
No wonder how hard we try to locate back the same route that we used previously, we can’t find it and eventually, we realized that it has been taken over by another new owner of
this Jo's Family Korean Restaurant. Similarly operated by a Korean man in his late 30’s, this sajangnim could converse better in English, thus communication is made easier then, hehe.The interior has been slightly modified, while still retaining the bright hue of the environment. Apart from the usual Korean food and snacks, BBQ meat is also available for
meat lovers.

 

 
There was a promotion on going too where all dishes are priced at MYR 10 nett, except BBQ poultry. Then we think, why not give this new eatery a try then?

 
And so, we sat down and flipped through the menu (not too much choice but decent). Oh by the way, the kimchi is homemade by sajangnim. Be prepared for some sourish kick from his recipe smile Banchan(Korean side dishes) to go with the Korean staple, Sundubu Jigae.

 
Bean curb were bounteously served with silken texture, cooked together with clams, squid and egg in the mild spicy broth. I like my soup to be more spiced up with kimchi, and so I added in more for extra flavours.

 
Korean seafood pancake coming up next- Haemul Pajeon. 

Dished up with light crispiness on the crust. Adequately sapid and not too floury. Makes a hearty snack still.

 

 
Subsequently rounded up with a fusion plate of Tonkatsu.

The pork chop was thoroughly marinated and deep-fried till golden brown. It’s crispy on the outside with the tickling breadcrumbs while remaining juicy and tender in the inside. Served with salads as the side.

 

 
Tea is the best choice to clear up the well-fed tummy.

We had this soothingly aromatic Rose Tea instead of the usual Corn Tea as the latter has just run out of stock. Therefore, sajangname made us some chilled Rose tea to accompany our quick lunch. In fact, we love this more as it’s much more fragrant and palatable. Kamsahamnida.

 
For a price of MYR10 nett per dish currently, we couldn’t ask for more as the food served were good enough to make a wholesome meal, a much more wiser and better alternative than indulging in desserts all the time. Some break from the sugar rush may be?

Cheers for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

NOSH UP  Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Restaurant

 
Your friendly neighbourhood café, Nosh Up, has now called Atria Mall as its latest home after Jaya One. Started on 28th May right after the official opening of the new mall, this cozy and vibrant café has now expanded its service to cater the crowds further down the SS2 locality conveniently and continue to whet the palate of the nearby folks with mouthwatering dishes.

 

 
Diners could still expect the chic and lively ambiance at this second outlet, coupled with some warm lighting to get you into the mood.

 
Elaine, who is a baker herself, also has a keen interest in cooking, hence decided to also introduce an array of hearty repast besides her promising cakes to further tantalize foodies around wholesomely with house signature dishes.Let’s have a quick rundown on what’s in stored for us, shall we? (=We startedoff with some spicy red soup that also greets the palate with some appetizing zest and garlicky kick too.
 SPICY FISHERMAN’S SOUP (MYR 14) 
Mild spicy and tart soup served with
assorted seafood such as mussels, squids, prawns, fish and also tomatoes.
Traces of coarsely chopped garlics are noticeable and its pungency blends in
quite well.

 

 
LAMB PIE (MYR 24)

Oven braised lamb with vegetables, served with potato rosti, puff pastry and side salad

 
Makes an ideal light snack that goes easily with a cup of joe. The puff pastry particularly deserved a mention for its extremely ethereal cloud-light and flaky at the same time. Goes really well with the tender meats without much gammy taste.

 
Here come the mains.

SMOKED DUCK MISO PASTA (MYR 22)

Spaghetti with smoked duck, cherry tomatoes, nori flakes and poached egg.

 
Pasta is good, done al dente, tossed in light miso instead of dark miso for the humble tinge of subtle fragrance to go along with the slightly sweet smoked duck meats.

 

 
DUCK LEG CONFIT WITH ORANGE SAUCE (MYR 35)

Slow poached duck leg served with citrus sauce over roasted potatoes and sturdy salad greens.

 
Duck confit- the unmistakable stellar dish of the day. Duck meat has been slowly cooked at a very slow simmer to ensure thorough flavor penetration, rendering the duck meat is tender and can be easily pulled from the bone.

 
CONFIT OF SALMON WITH HOLLANDAISE CAPERS SAUCE (MYR 42)

Generous cut of salmon fillet prepared and marinated the confit way. Juicy from inside out and easily flacked off , packed with sweetness juice that got complemented by the tasty capers sauce. I like how the potatoes sliced with the skin intact and roasted with some dashes of herbs.

 

 
Top up MYR 12 for the mains and thou shall get a complete combo of soup, mocktail and dessert!

 
For Asian flavours, try out this zesty squid menu.

GRILLED SOTONG SUMBAT WITH RICE (MYR 19)

Essentially rice-stuffed squid served with chef’s special dip sauce and Asian Salad.

 
Very interestingly presented, reminds me of gimbap and sushi too, except that this rendition by Nosh Up is spiced up with a toothsome thick gravy, epitome of our local flavours. Slurps! Might wanna go easy on it as it’s rather filing, so best for sharing.

 

 
And last but not least, some chilleddrinks and tea to clear down the throat. 
ROSY RASPBERRY LYCHEE (MYR 12)

A cheerful ‘berry’ thirst-quencher indeed.

 
RONNEFELDT GREEN LEMON TEA (MYR 10- TEA POT FOR ONE)

Sencha with mango-lemon flavor served in a tea pot, easily unwind your day rejuvenatingly.

 

 
Cheers for now and follow us at Carpe Diem for more ‘food-ful’ discoveries! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

KOTARO SUSHI RESTAURANT  Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Japanese | Restaurant

 

 
Set within the shopping mall of Pearl Point at Old Klang Road, Kotaro Sushi Restaurant is bound to steal your attention and perhaps also capture you palatably with its sumptuous range of traditional Japanese menu as well as omakase sushi, all maneuvered under a pair of experienced hands over 20 years.

 

 

 
Drifting patrons and those with a palate for the orient feast on flavours from the Land of the Rising Sun, could drop by for a comfy feast set within a cozy yet vintage environment that resembles the sushi bars atmosphere back in Japan. Decorations are kept simple where the interior is aesthetically livened up with many brands of sake bottes, koinobori, lattern, wooden table setting and et cetera.

 

 

 
From donburi to noodle and sushi-sashimi to yakimono, there is always something for everybody.

 
First and foremost, warm up your tummy with the silky steamed egg curd while waiting for the mains to arrive.

CHAWANMUSHI (MYR 5)

As the cliché has it, the velvet egg is served alongside mushroom slice and Kamaboko.

 
For yakimono, we tried one of the popular and staple Japanese side; grilled Saba fish.

SABA SYIOYAKI (MYR 18.80)

Grilled pacific mackerel with salt. Simple and packed with wholesomeness. I have always love saba fish and would called for it every time dining at Korean or Japanese restaurants.

 

 
Remember to squeeze some lemon juice for extra zest.GYUDON ( MYR 13.80- SMALL | MYR 22.80- LARGE )

For the rice dishes, we were served with this juicy and tender beef laces, laid atop a bed of warm rice in a dainty ceramic. It taste as awesome as its vibrant presentation.

 
Remember to mix the whole bowl evenly with the golden egg yolk before consuming for an extra silken nuance.

 
NABE YAKI UDON (MYR 13.80)

Another signature recipe from Japan, here you go the hot pot udon dished up in a clear and flavourful broth, together with tempura and other accompaniments. The soup was saporous as fish bone is also incorporated during the soup boiling process.

 
ZARU SOBA (MYR8.80)

Some grubs to chill you off awhile apart from the hot plates served so far. Cold green tea soba served with house special crafted savoury relish. All the elements served alongside quail egg are meant to be mixed in and stirred thoroughly as a whole, before enjoying it chillingly dipping the soba noodles into in.

 

 
Finally, the much said omakase sushi greets us with colorful assortment, added with some artsy touch.

 

 
A stair made up of nigiri sushi and sashimi combination. Choice of the morsels differ each day, depending what is deemed best of the day by the chef, hence the price changes relatively. The salmon was fresh and thickly cut, and my favourite goes to the inari tuna with fried salmon skin. Conveniently mouth bite-sized and tastefully promising.

 

 

 
Kotaro Sushi Restaurant does not serve pork, but offers alcohol on its menu. For more new menus and dishes coming up in the pipeline, remember to check out their page every now and then.For more omakase refined treats, do check out Kurata as well as Yuzen too.

EAT @ J'S  Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Western variety | Café | Steaks / Chops | Sweets/Snack

 

 
Nestled in the neighborhood of Taman Sea is where Eat @ J’s located and has been greeting the patrons nearby for 3 weeks now by the time we visited it.

 
A soothing and calming ambiance oozes through the contemporary atmosphere upon stepping in the vintage yet artsy decorated interior.

 
Savory dishes are mainly helmed by Nicholas himself, whilst the pastries side are left under the good hands of Sue, a devoted gastronome who enjoys food and baking at the same time. The passionate baker has actually purposely gone to Australia for 2 years, to master and get herself certified in baking professionally, wow!

 
From the farm, enjoyed the crafted poultry plates that easily conjure up gemütlich memories

HONEY BALSAMIC CHICKEN WITH MASH POTATO AND ROASTED PUMPKIN AND GREEN BEANS ON SIDE (MYR 19)

The complementing chemistry that works best between honey and chicken meat has seen them collaborating even better with balsamic vinegrette, further unleashing the sweetness of the poultry meat, served atop the nicely cubed pumpkins that are fragrantly pan-fried till a medium-soft nuance.

 
GRILLED STEAK WITH GREEN BEANS AND CARROTS, PAIR WITH HASSELBACK POTATO (MYR 28)

Sirloin grilled after brushed with house special seasoning oil that creates that luscious thinly caramelized layer on the meat exterior while remaining juicy and tender within.

 

 
Sauce upon request but I think the meat is already good by itself. Sometimes, I think it’s better to uphold the legacy of enjoying true and honest food au naturel, rather than smothering it heavily with other gravy which at times might drown its veritableness.Nevertheless, the accompanied black pepper sauce is aromatic as the peppercorn is freshly grounded, together with mushroom sauce crafted with shitake and demiglaze.

 
From the sea, we have this juicily grilled salmon.

 
GRILLED SALMON ON BED OF SAUTÉED SPINACH, ROASTED POTATO, PEARL BARLEY AND CHERRY TOMATOES (MYR 24)

Salmon is nicely pan grilled with skin intact, rendering uber juiciness packed within the toothsome fish meat that is rich in Omega-3. Albeit I might prefer a crispier and slightly browned fish skin, can’t deny the fact that it’s actually equally healthy and mouthwatering dish showcasing simplicity as its best. Holland mashed potato has also undergone straining process for a finer texture, enriched with some unsalted butter, served with sautéed aragula, cherries tomato and barley.

 
Now let’s make way for some delectable home baked pastries!

 
BANANA CREAM PIE & KEY LIME PIE (MYR 10.50 each)

Pies are lovesome here, namely Banana Cream and Key Lime. Contrasting with the tartness of the calamansi themed confectionary, I personally love the former one as the banoffee-like pastry is house-crafted just nice, not overly sweet nor soggy, which more often than not, is kinda saccharine after the banana got caramelized as encountered elsewhere. So whenever now am craving for some sweet fix, I’ll literally ‘Eat @ J’s’! (✿◠‿◠)

 
And little Jayden is seen enjoying his favourite lime pie mirthfully. The toddler is also the gem of the café’s owners, hence the significant and meaningful name given to the shop, J’s!

 
With that happy face behind, it’s already a beautiful mass but a yummy one smile

 
To wind down the scrumptious night, what’s better than to sip some decent cup of joe?

 
LATTE (MYR 10) Greet your palate with a robust flavor

 
COLD BREW LATTE (MYR 12)

Clean nicety and sleek aftertaste.

 
Each coffee beverage here is served double shot, using 100% Arabica beans from the blend of Brazil and Columbia, dark roasted for the nutty but smooth finishing.

 
All food here is priced nett and lunch set is available on weekdays only from 12pm – 3pm from MYR 9.90 onwards, so what are you waiting for? But it is advisable to reserve earlier as limited portion is available daily while stock last to ensure the optimum quality and money-for-value meal are served.

Cheers for now and follow us at Carpe Diem for more ‘food-ful’ discoveries! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

FOOD CLANS Smile Sep 29, 2015   
Share on TwitterShare on Facebook
Categories : Malaysian variety | Restaurant

 

 
Too much food to try but too little time to spend? Then Food Clans has got you all covered gladly under one roof!

 

 
Joining the food hive at GTower building, foodie clans especially busy expatriate and tourists alike literally save up a whole lots of time by being able to savour signature dishes of Malaysia without the hassle having to go up all the way to its respective states, just to sample few of them, if time is not at your side. Over here, only the best culinary maestro recipe and freshest ingredients are showcase. This explains why this café-cum-bistro ambiance is usually packed during lunch hours.Embarked on a chic and modern enclave unlike the usual chattering food court arena, Food Clans provides a more cozy place for pleasant dining moment while enjoying your fragrant cup of joe paired with your favorite chuck. The cafe starts as early as 7am during the weekdays to cater for the office crowds.

 
Breakfast set available from MYR 7.50 onwards, 7am to 1030am throughout.

 
TOAST BREAD WITH KAYA AND BUTTER (MYR 3.20)

A popular snack in both Malaysia and Singapore

 
COFFEE (MYR 3.50)

An aromatic cup using local house blend of 100% Robusto, rendering a much fruitier and acidic palate.

 
ICED COFFEE (MYR 4)

Personally I enjoyed the cold version more as the engaging coffee flavor still remained robustly throughout without getting too diluted by the iced cubes.

 

 
ICED LIME JUICE (MYR 3.20)

The ideal thirst-quencher during such sultry weather.

 
HOT CHAM (MYR 4)

Essentially coffee mixs with milk tea for a smoother nuance, just like how our locals love it!

 
Soon, we were served some of the best sellers in the house, get ready to be teleported on culinary trip from Penang to Sarawak (=

Let’s first start off with Sarawak Noodles stall, shall we? ^^

 
SARAWAK KOLO MEE (MYR 8.90)

Springy homemade noodles that are flavorfully paired with minced chicken meat, fried wanton, sturdy siew pak choy and fragrant fried chopped garlic. A fairer rendition from Sarawak than our common dark sauce wantan noodles.

 

 
SARAWAK LAKSA (MYR 11.90)

A toothsome bowl of laksa that is much heavier on the spice taste, contrary to the more piquant Penang’s version. Prawns are delightfully fresh and chewy, along juicy laces of chicken breast.

 
CHAI KUEH (MYR 6)

Bounteous filling that comes with assorted veggies and also Chinese sweet turnip in each dumpling, giving our taste bud a tickle of bursting flavor in the mouth.

 

 
Rice set is also available from 13.90 onwards on weekdays.

Now, it’s time to whet the palate with some mouthwatering and famous Penang hawker food delivered authentically from the Pearl of the Orient.

Lorong Seratus Tahun- Authentic Penang cuisine, am sure this brand is already widely known among us (=

 
PENANG CHEE CHEONG FUN (MYR 7.90)

An epitome serving of your slurpy-licious chee cheong fun that comes accompanied with the pungent prawn paste (some might not like it as it’s more of an acquired taste) as well as chili relish for added spice!

 
LST CURRY MEE (MYR 10.90)

Strands of silken noodles swimming brightly in the saporous curry gravy, together with tasty companion of prawns, chicken meat, cockles (depends on availability), and not forgetting its homemade chilli paste that enhances the overall flavor. Slightly thinker than the Sarawak Laksa as the former has been added with coconut milk.

 

 
Oh, did I just heard “Where is Penang famous staple, Char Koey Teow? Hehe.. 

Fret not, as Food Clans has it covered under its belt too.

LST FRIED KOAY TEOW (MYR 12.90)

A plate of translucent noodles stir-fried till fragrant and dished up full of ‘wok hei’ to titillate your tummy more.

 
Also remember to cool down with a bowl of chilling PENANG CENDOL (MYR 7.90) too.

 
Comes with slight saltiness form the coconut milk, but indeed a delish signature, served originally with gula Melaka to distinct itself from the sweeter version at Klang Valley.

 
Lunch set starting from MYR 16.80 onwards and also available on weekdays.

Last but not least, a quick glimpse of the popularly recognized dish from Indonesia- Ayam Di Penyet.

 
AYAM PENYET (MYR 11.90)

Authentic Indonesian smashed fried chicken specially relived from East Jawa. Chicken thigh is still tender even after deep-fried till golden brown, decently marinated with herbs and served up with the challenging belacan past. Seriously, if you have a faint tongue, do go easy on this seemingly unintimidating sauce, as it can get really spicy to the level of numbness at times, haha. So be prepared to sweat!

 

 

 
Ayam penyet value meal and lunch set available from MYR 6.90 and MYR 10.90 onwards respectivelyRelishing in good food has never been easier at Food Clans, a one-stop food kiosks featuring Malaysia’s signature hawker food together with some neighbouring recipes. For me who enjoy more laid-back atmosphere without much noise from the crowds, I prefer to visit this place during the weekend where more relaxing ambiance is exuded. Come and check out this contemporary establishment soon!
