Basically, K3K is an abbreviation of Kwai Sam Kee, literally translated as K3K Kopitiam. "Sam" means three in Cantonese, by the way. The idea of setting up K3K Benta Kaya came from Ho Kwai Sam, a man who used to tap rubber and operate a grocery to earn a living. It was inspired by the strenuous efforts of the rubber tappers in getting a good cuppa and bread to go with before work. After 50 years of history at Benta, Kuala Lipis, Pahang, K3K Benta Kaya opened its first branch in Damansara Perdana, and expanded its business to Subang Jaya, Bukit Tinggi, Klang, Kuchai Lama, and etc. – Edited from K3K Benta Kaya, Malaysia (http://k3kbentakaya.blogspot.com/)

 
I don't usually do this. I was completely insane to order a cup of Hot Soya Honey Ginger with extra sugar. Needless to say, I regretted. It tasted so bitter that I had to mix almost every mouthful of it with some kaya in my mouth before I swallowed.

 
Halfway through our dinner, Don decided to order another cup of drink consisting of coconut milk, sago, and red beans if I am not mistaken. Both of us couldn't quite remember its name, and it was nowhere to be found on the worldwide web. I guess it was good, or at least better than Hot Soya Honey Ginger, judging from my recall of intention to jokingly exchange our drinks.

 
Kaya Char Kuih! Just by looking at the picture shown on the menu, we pretty much drooled. Prepared and tasted similarly to our traditional You Tiao, K3K Benta Kaya served it together with their homemade kaya. Although the combination of sweetness and saltiness may be weird, I thought it was unique, and it could have been perfect if the amount of sugar used for their kaya could be reduced.

 
Apparently, Penghulu Fried Chicken with Rice was listed as one of the chef recommendations on the menu, and I have seen plenty of positive comments from several bloggers as I went through the internet for more information. Fried to perfection, the fried chicken was crunchy on the outside, and tender on the inside. Dip it into the bowl of curry that was not spicy with strong taste of coconut milk, and it will be perfect.

It is, nevertheless, not advisable for people who concern about weight and health.

 
My Curry Chicken Rice was very ordinary, to be frank. Still, I loved how K3K Benta Kaya served their meals with a small bunch of Mamak Style Fried Cabbage each to sort of balance the nutrition.

I know I will definitely return one day, perhaps another brunch, because I have yet to try their side dishes that tempted me so badly during my visit. Price wise, it's similar to other cafes like PappaRich, In House Cafe, and etc. Be sure to give it a try!

It wasn't my first visit to Matsuba Japanese Restaurant at Syopz, a building in the campus that offers a unique blend of retail and food and beverages outlets. Matsuba Japanese Restaurant seems to be one of the best available places in the campus among the other 23 outlets, which explains my return for lunch together with my friend, Kah Mun.

 
As usual, I ordered a Tamago Maki as snack, although my meal was filling enough. It wasn't as good as a sushi. It was nothing compared to those sold in Sakae Sushi or Rakuzen. It was slightly too pricy at RM2.50 per box per six pieces. It was just something more affordable that solved my craving.

Nuff said.

 
If I'm not mistaken, I was attacked by sore throat then. Instead of killing myself with a bowl of Chicken Katsu Don, I ordered Oyako Don at RM12.90, which the chicken was never fried, and mushrooms were added, topped with an egg that did not act as perfectly as an icing on a cake but still better than none.

For a person who never likes sashimi like me, I personally think that Matsuba Japanese Restaurant does not have a wide selection of food. I have been to this restaurant for no less than five times in total, and to date, my orders were always between Chicken Katsu Don and Oyako Don. Their Curry Rice is recommended too, if you are fine with curry with zero spiciness.

Hm.

At Food Republic, I quickly browsed through the stalls available and decided that Mixed Rice could work better as healthier "fast food" before my appointment. I didn't have to wait for anything to be cooked or heated. There were quite a few stalls that were selling Mixed Rice with different dishes, but the shrimps at Scissor Cut Curry Rice were simply too tempting, which was why I selected this particular stall in addition to the convenience.

 

 

 
Generally, it was good, and the price was definitely a killer. I would, nevertheless, prefer the eggplants to be cooked and soaked together with the vegetable curry instead of having them separated, making them tasteless. The fried bun was just something pricey that I took, at RM1.20 each if I am not mistaken.

Face to Face Noodles House at Taylor's University is not a good example of the saying, although inaccurate, that goes, "Good foods are never found in restaurants with multiple outlets." Their Pan Mee was not disappointing after all, even though incomparable with Kam Kei Noodles House in Selayang. Personally, it seems like a restaurant that sells overpriced Pan Mee, crowded only during peak hours.

 
I have only visited this particular outlet at Taylor's University for not more than five times, to be frank, and another outlet located somewhere within the country for merely once. I have tried their Creations Minced Pork Pan Mee, House Specialty Hot and Spicy Pan Mee (Dry), and Sichuan Piquant Pan Mee (less spicy), so I decided to challenge myself with their Vegetarian Hot and Spicy Pan Mee (Dry). I ended up eating it regretfully. I was about to be able to spout some flame and lava, I swear!

My overall experience with their Pan Mee was quite ordinary. In fact, I tend to take this restaurant as a backup, in case my original plan is somehow ruined.

 
This is something that I would never want to order ever again. I was craving for a cup of Soya Bean with Longan, and I mistook this cup of Longan Fresh Milk as what I thought it was. It was not too bad as a cup of milk, but I never like milk, that's why.

Apart from Pan Mee, Face to Face Noodles House sells Sarawak noodles, rice noodles, rice, side orders, breads, and desserts, and each of them come with various choices. As I review about the restaurant, I have come to realize that Face to Face Noodles House also specializes in the local fare with excellent fusion of Sarawak's homemade noodles, widely known as "Kolok Mee". I should give it a good try soon!

Nothing could be more suitable and filling than a plate of Mixed Rice as a quick and affordable meal. You could always choose the amount of rice you would like to have, and pick your most preferred dishes at a relatively lower cost than any other cafes and restaurants. The time consumed is no longer worried. Hence, Don and I would sometimes have our lunch dates at 126 Mixed Rice Restaurant, and he's still visiting this restaurant very frequently for its wide selection of delicious dishes.

 

 
On this particular Saturday, both of us got ourselves a plate of Mixed Rice each, with similar dishes, including vegetables and a generous amount of Hakka Braised Pork with Black Fungus. I added a Hard-boiled Egg in Sambal for myself because it was simply too tempting. These cost us less than RM10.00 in total, with free flow of plain water and Chinese Tea, with or without ice depending on your own preference.

To date, I have only visited this restaurant for three times. It was never crowded despite the many tables they have. In terms of dishes, their vegetables were pretty ordinary. Nevertheless, as a person who is very particular about pork meat, I would highly recommend their Hakka Braised Pork with Black Fungus, because the meat was extremely soft and tender, although quite fattening. It could be a good place to fill up your stomach, especially when you're on a tight budget.

I'm sure I will return to the same place again!
