Want a taste of Vietnamese?

16 Oct 2009 In: Vietnamese, dinner

I’m actually quite a fan of vietnamese food. I don’t eat it as often as Japanese.. (ooOooO temptations) but I do like the vietnamese green fresh taste….

Me and the Hubby were checking out Tropicana city mall in PJ… somewhere along the LDP highway.While we where they .. we came across this really nice and cosy restaurant. The lights and the interior was indeed very very cosy and the out look of it, kinda gave us the urge to go try it out.

The little place was called “pho hoa”. It was a cute little vietnamese place that sells their famous beef noodle soups. But please do not be decieve by the pictures on the menu… :) they are not as it seems.

I’m not going to elobrate much on how the food was…. because to me it was not really fantastic. I do not want to bring conclusion to anyone’s mind… as taste is very subjective. ;) I’ll let pictures speak.

Ahn-YONG haSEHyo

16 Sep 2009 In: Korean, dinner, yummies

“ahn yong hasehyo” is the first thing said to us, as we walked towards the little quaint korean BBQ house. This little place is owned by a korean family, making it very very much the real thing. I’ve been eyeing on this little place for quite sometime, but have not gotten the time to actually try out the food here. This little establishment, ain’t that little, it houses 2 floors for diners and the waiters here are ever ready to serve you.

kimchi galore

As usual, the 2 of us, plus our little one was keen on a new food adventure. I did the ordering…. the pictures on the menu, don’t really tell you what you getting, but the food that arrive was more then enough to feed 2 hungry persons. I ordered the Pork belly and the marinated beef in special sauce (bulgogi).

Before the food arrived, hot burning charcoal was placed in the BBQ area. They don’t use the electrical plugs here, here they serve you the old school way and i was impress. I’ve been to one or 2 establishments where the hot plate area is usually controlled by turning a knob. But here, the smell of smoke and charcoal fills the air. The small little bowls of appeitizers were the first to grace our table. Different sorts of Kimchi and differents sorts of starters were laid infront of us. The kimchis were delicious. They even have Steamed egg as part of the appeitizers. The wide range of veggies and if i’m not mistaken, pulled stew pork was yummilicious.

After the small bowls filled our table, the raw pork belly arrived. The young waiter helped us with the BBQ-ing,  ( i guess that’s the beauty of having a child with you) The smell of the pork belly was dizzily delicious. The BBQ-ing was done to the right texture. Believe me, the tastes is even more enticing. Next came the marinated beef. This was the hubby’s favourite. The meat was BBQ-ed not too well done, and not too raw, it actually melts in your mouth. The sauce was such a compliment to the beef.

Besides the main dishes, we also ordered a small bowl of seaweed soup. The soup was made with not only seaweed, but it had other seafood inside as well. The soup tasted really sweet, thanks to all the ingredients inside.

The food served here is definitely a thumbs up. I do recommend that if you’re a fan of Korean food, or even if it’s gonna be your first time, you must actually try this place. The price was pretty reasonable, and it had the 5-star hospitality. The Lady boss made you feel very much like home and she even took the time to walk customers out. That’s what I call a 5-star treatment.

Do remember before you head off….. say..”kamsamnida”

Delicious morning

27 Apr 2009 In: breakfast, chinese, yummies

The morning was bright, sunny and shining… the birds were chirping (i think i heard some chirping) and well it was a good morning to find some delicious breakfast.

We took a ride towards the Sungei Way morning market. According to the hubby, there’s this really nice place in the market to have “chee cheong fan” (flat noodles)…So that’s where we are headed

We walked pass traders selling vegetables, fish mongers, florist and butchers… walked up a flight of stairs to a food court on the top floor. The hubby said tis particular stall has been selling “chee cheong fan” for more than 15 years….

The little stall is located at the right hand side of the food court… it’s not hard to see it, as its signage is in yellow. The food doesn’t take very long to arrive. We ordered 2 different plates of “chee cheong fan”, one with the mushroom sauce and the other the curry sauce.

The mushroom sauce has a very very distinct smell and taste of the shitake mushroom. The sauce had more texture and was quite thick. I’m a fan of mushrooms, but wasn’t really a fan of the sauce. The hubby adores this, so did the the little one. I guess it’s a personal preference. The mushroom “chee cheong fan” came with slices of mushrooms that were very very tender.

As for the one with the curry sauce, well I must say.. it was delicious. The curry sauce came with little slices of chicken and also the tastes compliments the “chee cheong fan”. As for the texture, it was the opposite of the mushroom sauce. This sauce had less texture and was much more watery. Yummilicious!

So if you’re looking for a new place to have a great breakfast, then this is a must try.
