Sunday brunch at Kitchen Creatures

Decided to go brunch with the ladies on Sunday mid day for a catch up and to cheer myself up.  Called up and meet up at Kitchen Creatures. It's located at Centerpoint, Bandar Utama. It's a 10 minutes drive from my place and it's a perfect place for me, especially a place that away from hectic traffic. This is avoid starvation while waiting to reach destination for food.

We are welcomed with warmth and the customer service level was quite good and impressive. Kitchen Creatures is a perfect place for lunch, drinks, dinner or even for group gatherings. The place is great for familu quality time spending with a great meal and ambience. Air conditioning is subtle and not too cold or too hot. It's a non-smoking area so I guess smokers need to wait till the end of the meal then I think you guys to head down somewhere else for a puff.

The decoration of the place is quite simple yet gave the comfortable feeling. A homely feeling to be precise. I don't feel out of place. At least the place is not decorated with unnecessary deco that make the place so messy and felt so out of place. I do have experienced certain place that decorated with too much accesories and decoration items that made me feel uneasy and feel that owner is trying to hard, but failed to impress.

The menu designed to be simple and have a page of food that highly recommended or food with the most liked by customers. This page really made my choice for food a pleasant process. Fast and efficient. No more waiting waiter at your table waiting for your order. With the summary list, we ordered the food half of the time and spent our valuable time with friends catching up.

This is the Stew Beef Soup that I'm gonna give 7/10. The taste is rich with the ingredients plus the beef texture, well there's still more room for improvement. It was served hot and that's what I'm quite particular with. The soup also served with garlic bread, a small pieces of bread.

This Seafood Olio Pasta has quite a pleasant taste. The cream though a bit too rich for us ladies, we still like the tender shrimp that is quite fresh. The spagetti is not too hard either. This time we are giving a 6.5/10.

Pizza was tender and the cheese flavor gave us the tingling feeling. The ingredients used are fresh and the meat is marinated with spices that gave the tasty cheesy smell while you eating it. This one, I love it! Giving it a 8/10.

Ala Chicken King with rice did impressed me quite a lot. The cream is not too rich and the rice is mixed with a little bit of butter. The butter in the rice gave the great aroma that keep me scooped it one after another. This, I'm giving a 8.5/10!

Tiramisu. Will never go wrong for the dessert. This one, we are all agreed to give 7/10.

Verdict: 8/10

Service: 8/10

Food Quality: 7.5/10

Environment/ambience: 8/10

Price: 7/10

SEONG KEE Hakka Yong Tau Foo

Hunting for nice fresh yong tau foo around PJ Old Town area? then this is the place to come. This place is usually packed during dinner time as it is located in a Food Court. I will usually go 'makan' with my significant other and usually we will order pretty much the same thing.

For the fried ones we will order the brinjal, foo chok and sui kow. Once ordered you will have to wait a while for them to prepare. This is because they do it on the spot once ordered so it is always fresh! I have to say my favourite have to be the fried sui kow. The fillings are well balanced and its not too much skin nor too much meat. The other fried stuffs are good also as the fish paste is smooth and bouncy and not chewy.

For the soupy ones I usually order the stuffed chilli, tau fu, tau pok, ladies finger and bitter gourd. Like i mentioned earlier the fish paste is done nicely and it is smooth and bouncy. But be very very careful as it is fresh and its boiling hot. This is especially for the chilli and ladies finger as the outside might be cooled down but inside its still scorching hot! Sometimes I like to dip the fried stuffs into the soup.

One more usual dish we order is the fried chicken wings. The wings is nicely marinated and fried and it is just so juicy and crispy! yumm!!

There are two more dishes that people usually order which is the Pork Knuckle with Vinegar and the curry. Unfortunately I didnt snap any photo of those. But it is also a must try.

It is located at the Medan Selera at Jalan Othman PJ OLD TOWN, next to the Market.

Service: 6/10 (Slightly slow to react especially if there is too many people)
Food Quality: 8/10 (not bad)
Environment/ambience: 7/10 (abit warm and not all fans are on)
Price: 8/10 (reasonable for KL standard)

My verdict: one of the few fresh yong tau foo in PJ South area. Can try coz its not too bad!

One Fine morning my colleague ask me whether I wanted to go for Cheap and good breakfast. Was hesitating at first but decided what the heck lets go. So I followed him. He said this place is cheap and the food is good.

It is this small stall off Jalan Genting Klang. Its located near the famous Prawn Mee. It is actually opposite the Galleria Building at Jalan Genting Klang.

When reached the placed was packed with people. It is just a small stall along the road. Its rather comfy tho as there are trees and maybe its the morning breeze. So it is not stuffy. We got a table instantly and my colleague told me to go take the food. So I followed him. There I saw many many small packs of food packed with newspaper. Each section the paper was labeled with different initials, one is NL, BH, Petai, Sotong etc... so I ask them what was it so NL was normal Nasi Lemak, BH is fried Bi hun and the Petai, Sotong etc was Nasi Lauk. Basically Nasi lauk is just rice and the dishes labeled. But there is a surprise, the rice is infact also nasi lemak just missing the eggs and sambal.

Since its a rather small pack my colleague advise me to take two. Well, what the heck i thought. I took two. One was normal Nasi Lemak as shown in the pic below...

And the other was Nasi Petai ikan bilis.
I have to say the food is actually really really good. The rice was cooked properly and its not too dry nor too wet and the aroma and taste was very balanced. You can basically feel each grain of rice. The sambal is not too spicy and not sweet, its just nice. The petai is glorious. Even though the portion was small but it was enough to satisfy my curious taste buds.

Then at the end I just wash everything down with a nice cup of kopi kurang manis.

At the end guess how much I paid for my meal? A thrifty RM 2.30 (if I remember correctly la...). Overall I get a filled belly and still heavy wallet! haha. This place only serves breakfast. Do not know what time the close tho.

Service: 7/10 (self service, and the drink guy takes too long to come and count)
Food Quality: 8/10 (good for the price we pay!)
Environment/ambience: 5/10 (road side stall, will be extremely warm if no wind)
Price: 9/10 (cant get this price in downtown KL anymore)

My verdict: Try if you are nearby! there are so many other nasi choices that I have yet to try...

I've been eating at this place for god know how long ago. And this place is famous for their prawn mee! This is non other that Kam Heong Coffee show prawn mee. Just ask anyone from PJ south area and ask them about PJ state prawn mee and they will say yea they know.

I got a friend, Joe, he said when he was young, their family will go to this place almost every weekend! why? coz the Prawn Mee is just too gooooood. Till that day I went there and there he was! eating with his wife! Its that good!

So how to order? just order la! HAR MIEN - BIHUN MEE OR BIHUN is ok! Everyone knows that the most important ingredient in Prawn mee or as in the northern states call it Hokkien Mee is their soup. This soup is really really good. I always finish the soup and lick the bowl clean!

In this bowl you get sliced pork, one whole hard boiled eggs sliced, "kangkung" and bean sprouts. Along with the soup and noodle... its one bowl you will never forget! This is where you go "OH LALA MAMA MIA, PERFECTO!!"

The portion is quite generous too! For RM 4.50 per bowl its worth every penny. Unlike some other place where its only like half the portion of this!

Besides the prawn mee, one more fantastic dish is the Ngau Lam Mee (Beef soup noodle) at the Wan Tan Mee stall. This one is also another dish that is not to be missed. The beef is tender and the aroma is fantastic. Can taste that the beef is boiled for a long time along with ginger and clove and other spices. To take it alone is fantastic but to take it with wan tan noodle is also great! Price is RM 5.50 with noodles and RM 5 without noodles.

Too much cholesterol for the taking? then wash it down with this Ambarella, or Ambula or buah Kedondong juice or in cantonese "Sar Lei Shin Mui". Refreshingly nice sweet sour and salty juice. yum!
Besides all this there are lots more other food such as pork noodle, porridge, pan mee, chicken rice and at night the famous famous kam hiong duck rice which is also a must try. (sorry no pics here ... yet)

The ambiance is not bad, very packed during weekend mornings and afternoon and during the weekdays dinner is quite pack but the noodles is only during the day and it closes around 230pm.
Its done in a way that its not warm or stuffy. So its quite comfortable.

Service: 9/10 (fast attentive service, but slightly slow if too pack)
Food Quality: 9/10 (almost all the stalls there serves good food)
Environment/ambience: 8/10 (comfortable and cooling as its quite airy with fans and shades)
Price: 8/10 (reasonable for KL standard)

My verdict: Its a definite must try! one of the best in Klang Valley

Its next to UOB bank. opposite the pencil shaped MPPJ Building.

Of all the Arabic restaurant I've tried so far, I have to say this place is one of the best. Didnt manage to take a photo of their entrance so I have to borrow from hehe. Was too excited to try it coz the wan and only told me that this place serves one of "the best" mendy rice ever, so thats why I didnt manage to take a photo of their shop!

The design of the restaurant is very posh. It is located up stairs and there is an usherer at the ground floor to guide you up. When I first went in, I was like wow... pure Arabic glamour! nicely decorated place!

The table itself is decorated very nicely. I am already impressed and to add along with my excitement, I was already being very impatient! ahha

So, they first pass us the menu to order and both The Wan and Only and I started flipping through like a kid. While we flipping through the menu the waiter serve us authentic arabic tea. Its aromatic tea added with spice. Very interesting! So we proceed to order our meals.

I ordered the mix vegetable soup. It was ok, nothing special here. But my tongue is already dying to try the mendy rice.

Then we ordered the triple platter appetiser. It consists of Hummus, Baba Ganoush and one more paste I cant remember. I have to say that I always hear about Baba Ganoush and this was the first time I tried this. It is really tasty, you dip it with their freshly baked bread which is so nice especially when you dip wit hummus or baba ganoush! I was already a happy man! I kinda took quite alot of bread as it is kinda addictive! No wonder Zohan's dad was dipping everything into the hummus!

Then came our main dish. I ordered the Mendy Lamb Rice. It is exactly like The Wan and Only described, the rice is so fluffy and aromatic! I tell you its so fluffy i can die!!!! the lamb is very very tender and the aroma is soooo soooo good! I finish my rice in a split second! Its alot but its just so addictive! You just dont want to stop!

The Wan ordered the Mendy Chicken rice. I tried curi the chicken from Wan and it is also cooked till its so tender! Just so easy to the jaw! By this time I was already reaching food orgasm! hahahahaha. Its really good!

Finally my dessert. This is nice sweet and creamy. Its like eating soggy cornflakes with sweetened milk. Interesting dessert!

I have to say it was a wholesome and fantastic meal! I actually went there again a few times after that with Little Miss Sumandak!

Price wise, its slightly pricier compared to some other arabic restaurant. The total for one person was around RM50. But trust me, its well worth it.

But location is abit hard to find if you are not familiar with Sri Petaling area. Parking is hard to find if you go during the day. But during the night its slightly better.

Service: 7/10 (service is ok not too friendly but attentive if restaurant is not packed)
Food Quality: 9/10 (i said what i have to say above)
Environment/ambience: 8/10 (comfortable and cooling as its quite airy with fans and aircond)
Price: 7/10 (kinda pricey compared to other Arabic Restaurant)

My verdict: Its a definite must try! Reading how fluffy it is wont justify how it feels in your mouth! Go GO GO!!!

It was the MIHAS fair my colleague decided to take me to try some cheap and good food. He said this is the place where he always go after his Friday prayers. Well when this fella say its cheap and good I have to believe him!!

So he took me to this Medan Selera Duta. Where he said that they are famous for the Nasi Ayam Goreng where they use nasi kukus. It was this specific stall (Stall 19) that the fried chicken is nice. The queue was long and the place was packed with working people.

So i followed what he ordered. Nasi Kukus tambah Ayam Goreng... "Peha ye..". Extra chilli. Even if you eat there they will pack it. In it is the fried chicken, rice, vege and chilli sauce. I have to say even it is not like the chinese style where the rice is cooked with chicken stock but this one the mix of the rice and the chicken and the chilli sauce makes the meal a real blast. The chicken is fried dry, not the one where they dip in flour type but the normal marinated fried chicken. The meat is tender and succulent! The chilli is blend with slight garlic and vinegar... syok! Best of all its cheap. Its just RM3!

Then for drinks I ordered the limau ice which is only RM1 if i am not mistaken.

Then as I was eating I noticed alot of people also ordered this Mee Bandung. And the curious me decided to whack another dish. So I ordered the mee bandung. But I think I ordered from the wrong store coz when it came it wasnt like the ones i saw on the other table. But I just whack it anyway. It tasted alright, not the best mee bandung I tasted.... The price for the mee was RM4. Not that cheap...

Their business hours are mostly during lunch time. But be prepared as it is quite packed during lunch hour and parking can be quite difficult!

Service: 7/10 (fast but have to line up, Its a food court anyway, so cannot complain much!)
Food Quality: 6/10 (nothing much to be said)
Environment/ambience: 4/10 (warm and very pack with people)
Price: 8/10 (cheap for KL standard)

My verdict: Its okla. If only you are in the area then go. Not worth driving across town to eat this

I love Indian food always had. Why? Coz of the sensation of the herbs and spices blasting in the mouth. So when ever I see a particular Indian restaurant my eyes sparkle up! This restaurant is located at PJ New Town or PJ State or Area 51.. oops I mean Section 52. Was driving pass it everytime I go to do my banking but was curious what they served. Its a vegetarian restaurant. So one fine day I decided to go in and try.

The ambiance was nice. Air conditioned and all. But going in I swore people was staring at me one kind. I guess I am big ahha. Anyway the waiter was very attentive. As we sat down the came and pass us the menu and ready to take our orders.

As I was scrolling through the menu there were many interesting names that till now I cant even remember how to spell it. I guess its some southern Indian i guess.

I ordered the plain naan. Well, nothing special about this but its nice, warm and fresh.

next is the the vegetarian chicken. Of course you cant compare with the real chicken but the flavour is just nice! and the vegetarian chicken does have a certain texture that makes you think its like chicken haha!

Honestly I cant remember what is this dish called. I know the waiter recommended it to me and its actually cream cheese cubes cooked in tomato, chilli and spices. Very interesting dish! the cheese and the gravy makes an interesting blend. Sweet, sour, salty and slightly spicy. Yum!

This is the devil's potato. Dont let the name scare you, its just spicy potato. Well the potato is done nicely and its not hard or too soft. The flavour is absorbed into the potato well. All this goes really well with the naan or thosai!

This is the tomato thosai... or is it naan. I cant remember, it was all introduced by the waiter. Sorry for the lack of information as this was taken few months back and was busy trying other food and .... yes i admit the lazy me didnt update it in this blog. Anyway this one is also another funny tasting dish. Its actually tasty. Its like thosai made with tomato ketchup! but its fresh tomato! nice!

What I can say is that this is indeed an interesting place to try. But one thing that might be a slight turnoff, it is the price. As much as I enjoyed the food but my plain naan cost RM5. Its quite costly but end of the day its a wholesome and good meal.

They open daily from 7am - 11pm

Location is opposite Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara. Same row with Eon bank, HSBC and CIMB. But parking is a bitch during the weekdays as it is a commercial area. Other notable landmark is the tall PKNS Building and the famous white pencil shaped MPPJ Tower.

Service: 6/10 (slightly slow on the food serving but they serve everything at once, waiter doesnt really understand English or BM well)
Food Quality: 8/10
Environment/ambience: 8/10 (Air Conditioned, spacious and nice layout)
Price: 7/10 (slightly pricey)

My verdict: Worth a try as the dishes are different from normal mamak or banana leaf restaurant. Basically its in between Mamak food and Indian Fine Dining.

So far I have not tasted any other Pork Noodle as tasty as this one. Its located at Brickfields at this food court called May Flower Food Court.

Its kinda tricky to get there tho. Its actually opposite Pos Malaysia along Jalan Tun Sambanthan. This shop was formerly at the New Lay Sin Restaurant Opposite Sri Kota Supermarket but now they have shifted to May Flower. I have to say its more comfortable now compared to the hot and packed New Lay Sin.

The highlight of any pork noodle is their soup and of course the juicy tender pork and I have to say this one tops it all. The soup is fantastic, the pork are nice and juicy. What I usually order is the large Bihun Mee without the spareparts (liver, intestine and stomach). You can have the option to add an egg into it as I always do. What they do is to crack an egg right after they cook! so you can slowly slurp your un broken half boiled egg with abit of the soup as a whole. Yum yum yum!

Usually when it is served I would ask them to give some "chu yau cha" which is deep fried lard. Crispy and a very very guilty add on!

They also serve the dry version (kon low). They still serve a good portion of minced pork and juicy pork in a separate bowl of soup and yes... you can still add the eggs! yum yum!

sorry pic is unclear, using my mobile phone's camera hehe.

The price of the noodle? RM 5 for the large and RM 4.50 for the normal (both is with eggs). Not bad! If you are in KL Bangsar or Brickfields area, then its a definite must try!

If you are interested, in the same food court they serve nice and cheap Banana Leaf rice too. Yumm yumm! Price for a normal set of vegetarian meal (rice, vege, parpadom, rassam and curry) cost only RM4. It used to be RM3.50 when they were at New Lay Sin but its still cheap. If you add chicken or fish it would only cost around RM7. So its an alternative if you dont want to indulge on the tasty pork noodles!

As I said earlier finding the place will be abit tricky. There is an open carpark (AsiaPark) next to the Food Court but the entrance is slightly in an awkward area. If you are coming from Bangsar area, be sure to keep right once you turn to Jln Tun Sambanthan. The entrance of the parking is directly opposite Pos Malaysia and its hidden right at the end of the first row of shoplots. So do be careful!

They open from morning till 2.30pm. So better be there before it runs out!!

Service: 7/10 (its fast, food comes within 5-10 minutes after ordering, but its a food court so cut it some slack la)
Food Quality: 9/10
Environment/ambience: 7/10 (clean and tidy... but typical food court style)
Price: 9/10

My verdict: craving for some good Pork Noodles? this is the place!

Korean Food with Love

Disclaimer: This is based on my personal opinion and do not represent any food establishments. Taste it with your OWN risk.

I started to try out Korean food only recent years. Thanks to my sister who introduced it to me. At first, the only thing that popped into my head is the RED KIMCHI. I was kind of skeptical when comes to food that preserved for the taste. I still remember that after watching the Korean Drama Dae Jang Geum and the Korean Anime version, I'm craving for Korean food even more.

Feel free to click the picture and the link.

#1 Seo Gung SS2
This is the 1st one I visited at Seo Geung on my birthday back in year 2008. I feel in love with Korean food ever since and I don't mind trying out all types of Korean food in Klang Valley. I went with my family and @junsern for the birthday dinner. I still could recall there was a change of petrol price the next day and the whole PJ's petrol stations were jammed with cars. We were late for the dinner in a way and quite frustrating as these people just being inconsiderate on the road.

These are the pictures I took my phone:

Pic 1: The BBQ

Don't fret because all these will be prepared for you by the experts during the process. So, just sit down and relax while waiting for the food ready to serve. Pork and beef are the superb combo when comes to choose the right combo mix for your meal. I would say, this is the type of food that I love a lot. Hot and tasty!

Pic 2: The hot plate - Sotong

Spicy and hot too. The taste is really different than those normal hot plate food that I tried before this at Chinese restaurant. Korean food seasonings always gave the *zing* feeling as my tongue love the foreign taste. Best to eat with white rice and the soup too.

This is the Ginseng Soup with glutinous rice and chicken in it. It's best to be served hot. Taste will be a bit bitter because of the Ginseng that added into the soup. However, it's still edible as I myself can't stop eating and drinking the soup after the first sip. Worth trying.

BiBiBam. That's right! It's a really catchy name. I can't stop repeating saying it with different voice tone! Hilarious! The rice that prepared with the ingredients in a hot stone. The egg yolk that mixed together with the rice after being served on the table.

* pic taken from

This is the location in SS2 and how it is looked like from this view. It's located right next to Bread Talk SS2. With the large signboard, I think it's pretty easy to locate the restaurant. As for the availability of parking, it will slightly a challenge for customers as SS2 is quite a busy area. It's much worse during weekends. I would suggest my family and friends to come to the location much earlier to avoid disappointment.

This one was a complimentary dish from the owner. Thank you very much. This is a steamed eggs in a hot clay pot. This mini clay pot appeared many times in the famous Korean drama, Dae Jang Geum. It seems that these pots are very popular among Koreans when comes to prepare a great meal.

This a grill pork meat. To all my Muslim friends, sorry. This is not a suitable place for you guys to try this out. The meat well marinated with the seasonings and the vegetables that stuffed inside the meat made the dish a pleasant one to try.

I've included the map for you guys to locate the restaurant. Good luck and hope you guys enjoy and like the food that served here.

#2 Kimchi, Tropicana City Mall

JS and I went here as we are curious with the new outlet here in TCM. I love the design of the food menu. The ambiance is not bad for a modern Korean restaurant. The difference compared to Seo Geung is that the waiters not that friendly. Sigh. Perhaps they need to bulk up on that.

For all the small dishes here are refillable. That's what I love about it. Kimchi is the one thing that I can't stop eating and keep asking for refill! Boss! One MOREEE!

IMPORTANT TIPS: Make sure you keep it refill when your main course is not finished yet. Once you finished the main course, they will NOT entertain you when you ask for refill.

This is the pancake that made of eggs and vegetables. It's quite a light dish to have. However, it will taste better if it's served hot.

The restaurant located at Tropicana City Mall, 1st Floor Lot 1-57. Feel free to visit HERE for more information on the restaurant.
