Nathan’s @ Bukit OUG

23 02 2010

Mamak is certainly the choice of place to eat for any Malaysians who are looking for affordable food. There are certainly plenty of mamak stalls around. One the my favourite from many years back is Nathan’s which is located at Bukit OUG. Throughout the years, this restaurant has attracted scores of people with their serving of local delicacies.

Last week, I went there to have a plate of their Maggi Mee goreng. While it is not the best that I have tasted, it is still good.

The secret to a good plate of Maggi Mee goreng is the moisture of the noodle and the ingredients that they used to fry it together.

And of course, nothing beats having a glass of Ice Milo to cool down the body after a spicy meal.





Thean Hou Temple @ Kuala Lumpur

22 02 2010

I woke up early last Friday and make a trip down to Thien Hou Temple at Taman Seputeh. Since I wanted to do some prayers, I thought it would be nice to take my camera long to take shoot some pictures of the place. Too bad I didn’t manage to snap much pictures as the crowd started to pour in soon after.

Vivo @ Bukit Tinggi Jusco, Klang

21 02 2010

Despite venturing around town looking for nice food on a regular basis, it is sometimes not easy to decide what to eat especially when choices are abundant. This was the exact predicament I was facing when walking around Jusco at Bukit Tinggi last week. The number of restaurants there was certainly more than ample which makes it hard for me to choose what to have for a meal.

Taking my chances, I finally decided to try out this new restaurant called Vivo located at the ground floor of the shopping mall. According to the menu, the pizza served at Vivo originated from a secret recipe of the Horrigan family, who served the best American style pizza in town using the traditional method of baking. The friendly waiter recommended the Smoked Chicken BBQ pizza (RM 18.90) which comes with chicken strips, fresh mushroom, onions, capsicums and topped with their special BBQ sauce on a 10″ thin crust.

True enough, the pizza was really good.

I love the taste of the BBQ sauce. The smoked chicken meat is also nice but overall it is the sauce that gave the flavoursome taste.

The Seafood Spaghetti Aglio Olio (RM17.80 )  is another recommended meal.

If you are in the mood for some spicy dish, this certainly won’t disappoint.

The mussels are certainly big.

The prawns are fresh too.

More pictures…

Apart from that, I also tried the BBQ wings (RM 9.90). Since I was feeling really hungry that night, it didn’t take me long to finish them.

Our meal came with a Oreo Cheesecake (RM 5.80) which again was pretty good.

Fullhouse @ NZX

20 02 2010

It has been quite sometime since I visited Fullhouse at NZX. Apparently, this is the only surviving shop in the dilapidated NZX commercial area which is pretty sad considering how lively it was just one year ago.

Anyway it is always a nice experience going to Fullhouse as the place is reminiscent of a house from outside. The Mini car in front of the entrance is a sure crowd puller!

Inside, the interior is decorated like an English house with props such as pigeons, green grasses, potted plants, umbrellas and etc.

The menu is pretty interesting too since it is filled with hand drawn cartoons depicting the various dishes that they served.

I chose the ‘Thomas’ Favourite Meal’ set lunch (RM 16.90) which comes with a bowl of Forest Mushroom Soup, Spaghetti Pasta with Turkey Ham, Ice Lemon Tea and a dessert.

The forest mushroom soup comes with minced wild mushrooms which gives a thick texture to the soup.

And here is the Spaghetti with Turkey Ham.

I like the white sauce which has a creamy taste to it.

My colleague ordered ‘Tony’s Favourite Meal’ (RM 18.90) which comes with Oven Roasted Chicken Chop with Daily Vegetable.

In case you are wondering what daily vegetable is, it is actually Bak Choy with slice carrots.

Looks pretty good too.

Lastly, here is the lovely cake for dessert. I really don’t know what it is called but I like it a lot.

Overall, I enjoyed the food there. Combine with the nice ambiance and decorations, dining at Fullhouse is certainly an unique experience.

Putrajaya

17 02 2010

Here are some shots I took at Putrajaya while bringing my cousin and his friend from US for a drive. It was around 7:00 p.m. when we reached the place. The sunset provided a nice lighting to shoot against the architecture there.





Fusion Haven @ Kota Damansara

16 02 2010

While looking at my picture folder, I found some photos of the food I ate at Fusion Haven a few weeks back. Since I have blogged about this place numerous times, there is really no need to write any introduction about the restaurant.

I enjoyed eating their set lunch which comes with a drink (ice lemon tea) and main course and dessert. The ice lemon tea is a good way to quench the thirst on a hot afternoon.

We took the crispy dragon pearl for starters since everyone was feeling rather hungry.

My colleague ordered the Portuguese Chicken Pop Rice (RM 7.90) which comes with some sweet sour chicken and mushroom sauce on top of the rice.

And here are some pictures of Kimuchi Omelette Spaghetti (RM 8.90) that I had. It has some kimchi mixed with spaghetti noodle and a omelette on top. There was also some sweet soya sauce on the bottom to give a bit of salty taste.

Sarawak Kolo Mee @ Ara Damansara

10 02 2010

Many years ago, I went to Kuching, Sarawak to attend my sister’s wedding. During my short stay there, I managed to try their famous local dish called Sarawak Kolo Mee. Essentially, it is similar to wantan mee  except that they do not use any black sauce. It was really tasty and I can still remember how good it was until today.

So when I stumbled across this stall in Ming Yang selling Sarawak Kolo Mee, I did not hesitate to order a plate.

For RM 4.50, I must say that the serving is quite generous.

However, instead of using the usual char siew for meat, they substitute it with slices of fish cakes which were quite okay for me.

Overall, I wasn’t disappointed with the noodles. The noodles are flat yet springy at the same time. And of course, some green vegetables to add colours to the dish.

True to its origin, they do not put black sauce too. Overall, I enjoyed the meal a lot. Although I have rarely tried Sarawak Kolo Mee elsewhere, I can say that this one is pretty good.

Mak Long Warong Satay @ Jalan Puchong

8 02 2010

It’s rare to come across a ‘Warong’ indigeniously built on a former abandon wooden house. Mak Long Warong Satay is a prime example where minimal renovation provides the right dining ambiance akin to an old Kampung village. I spotted this place a few weeks back when its big banner was hung on its entrance. Feeling the appetite for satay (skewered meat), I decided to stop by this place to fill my stomach.

Rows of satay are seen stacked up on the red container waiting to be cooked.

I ordered the Mak Long ABC too which tasted not bad at all. Instead of the usual shaved ice dessert, they also include pineapple cubes and a dollop of red beans on the side.

And here are the satays. We ordered the chicken and beef variants as you can see here.

Each stick costs RM 0.70 which is just about the price you paid elsewhere. I prefer the chicken flavour as the meat is tender and sweet.

The best way to eat these skewered meat is with nasi impit (RM 1.00) and cucumber and onions with the spicy satay sauce.

Little Wok Mee @ Ming Yang

7 02 2010

Since my office is located near to Ara Damansara, I will usually drive to Ming Yang Restaurant to eat during my lunch break. Although the place is situated at the back of NZX, the amount of customers seen during lunch hours is surprisingly good. I guess this is partly attributed to the good food that are prepared by the individual stalls there.

Last week, I ordered the Little Wok Mee which is served with.. yes, a little wok. As cute as it is, this is not the first time I seen such dish. I guess apart from its cosmetic appearance, the noodles are cooked using the wok.

I chose yee mee and added fried fishballs since I felt very hungry that afternoon.

For RM 5.50, the portion was really generous. They also gave a few pieces of prawns too.

As you can see, the noodle is nicely cook (not too soft) while the gravy is thick. I finished my meal in no time as it was really appetizing.
