Restoran Makanan Laut Soon Fatt @ Sri Petaling

27 01 2011

I have been a regular customer at Restoran Makanan Laut Soon Fatt for many years. Despite loving the food there, I had never thought of blogging about it until now. I guess most of the time, my family members were around so I felt rather hesitant to bring my camera along to take pictures while they are staring at the food. Lol!

Anyway, one of the reason why I enjoy eating at this place is because of its reasonable price. Unlike some Chinese restaraunts that serve mediocre food with an expensive price tag, the food at Soon Fatt are consistently tasty and more importantly, do not burn a hole in your wallet.

Take this steam ‘hong cho’ fish for instance.

For RM 26, the dish was really value for money. Not only was the fish fresh, the taste was spot on.

Just take a look at the fish texture…

The ‘Sei Tai Thin Wong’ (RM 6) which means Four Heavenly Kings (in this case, four variants of vegetables – long beans, 4-angled bean, brinjals and bitter bean) was also nice. The rich taste dried shrimp and sambal brought a smile on my face.

The sizzling plate tofu (RM 7) was another another dish which I enjoyed. If you have tasted enough Chinese food, you will know what I mean.

The place is very crowded during dinner time. However, the food usually come very quickly. Highly recommended.

Fried Pan Mee @ Jalan Sepadu

23 01 2011

When I first heard about a famous fried pan mee stall at Jalan Sepadu, I knew I had to give it a try. Pan mee or flat flour noodle are commonly prepared with soup or ‘kon lou’ (dry) style version. So how does fried pan mee taste like?

A small plate of fried pan mee costs RM 5.00 each while a slightly larger service costs RM 1 extra.

The fried pan mee looks a lot like hokkien mee and taste almost the same too.

The only exception is the texture of the noodle which is flatter and springy.

To be honest, I enjoyed eating it a lot. It was moist, has the right amount of dark soya sauce taste.

If you fancy pan mee with a twist in its style of cooking, then give this place a try. I was told that the stall is actually more famous for its loh mee. Well, there is always a next time….

Hai Yew Heng @ Tanjung Sepat

21 01 2011

Prior to my trip to Tanjung Sepat, I heard a lot of hype about the famous bao (bun) at Tanjung Sepat. Some even claimed that the business was so good till customers have to pre-order via telephone beforehand. Otherwise, they have to wait for 2 hours to purchase those buns. Even celebrities from Hong Kong came and ate the famous bao, which is a testament of how good the buns must be.

Located at Jalan Pasar, Hai Yew Heng was indeed a standout from the rest of the shop there. I supposed the house where the buns were produced has undergone a recent renovation judging from the fresh coat of paint and air-conditioning facilities.

Inside, workers are busy preparing the buns on a large piece of metal table.

Ingredients such as ‘mui choi’ and ‘choi bao’ were seen lying next to the table.

There was an old coffee shop just opposite the road, which I presume belongs to the same owner since we could also order the bao from there.

Each bun came with a piece of paper underneath with the name and address printed out.

I had the pork meat bao (RM 2.20). Inside there was a big chunk of meat and a piece of boiled egg.

While some people like it, it was only average for me. After hearing so much hype about the buns, I was rather let down by it. Not that it tasted bad, but it wasn’t as good as I imagined it to be.

The rest of the bao sold are salted vegetable bao (RM 2.00), red bean bao (RM 1.40), kaya bao (RM 1.40), peanut bao (RM 1.40) and vegetable bao (RM 1.40).

Restoran YiKee Seafood Bak Kut Teh @ Tanjung Sepat

17 01 2011

One fine weekend, I made a trip down to Tanjung Sepat with my in-laws. Tanjung Sepat is a well-known fishing town just 18km south-east of Morib town. One of the local attractions in this place is YiKee Seafood Bak Kut Teh. Located at the intersection of Jalan Besar and Lorong 7, this quaint restaurant was certainly a crowd puller judging by the morning crowd.

While I had tried all sort of Bak Kut Teh in Klang Valley, seafood Bak Kut Teh was something new to me. From what I understand, the owner came up with this idea of selling seafood Bak Kut Teh when some of its local customers brought along their catch of the day and requested it to be cooked with the Bak Kut Teh broth.

The fresh seafood and other raw ingredients can be seen on the counter top where the owner, Mr. Chia was busy preparing Bak Kut Teh of all sorts for his customers.

Apart from the seafood Bak Kut Teh, YiKee does sell pork based Bak Kut Teh as well. But somehow I didn’t quite enjoy it that much as the soup was rather diluted as compared to thicker version which I generally prefer.

The Prawn Bak Kut Teh was a different story altogether. The sweetness of the seafood flavour really makes the broth tasty. I kept drinking the soup while enjoying the fresh prawns.

The fish paste clear soup will certainly delight those who like strong taste of black pepper with a tinge of sour taste in the soup.

All in all, the bill came up to RM 141. 50 for 10 pax. Quite cheap considering the the amount of seafood that was served in each claypot.

Sinfully Chocolate @ 3 Two Square, Petaling Jaya

14 01 2011

When I first heard of Sinfully Chocolate, I thought they would be selling, well, chocolates. So you can imagine how surprised I was when I was greeted with breads and pastries at the cafe instead. On top of that, Sinfully Chocolate were also serving food which comes in set lunch at the price of RM 9.90 each.

The Aglio Olio spaghetti was really tasty. There was a light yet tasty flavour to it.

I was never a fan of Aglio Olio until I tried this one. The finer strands of spaghetti (angle hair) tends to take in more flavour. The bacon was nicely cooked and goes well the the garlic and sundried tomatoes.

I also like the fact that they included some fresh salad and a potato bread.

Overall this is a definitely a thumbs up meal!

The Spaghetti Bolognese was equally good as well. The richness of the bolognese sauce was the number one reason why I really love it.

Minced chicken, diced tomatoes and a mixture of green and yellow pepper made this meal really tasty.

For RM 9.90, you can’t really go wrong with the food at Sinfully Chocolate. The portion is huge and the taste is great.

If you are looking for a great meal at a reasonable price, Sinfully Chocolate would fit the bill nicely. Two thumbs up.

I really enjoyed my photoshoot session with Erica. When I was browsing through the pictures after the session, I told her that the photos turned out great. Erica has a natural flair to pose in front of the camera. Kudos to her for making the session truly memorable. Here are some of my favourite pictures taken that day.
