Delicious Birthday

12 Jan 2009 In: fusion, lunch, western

It was mom’s birthday a few weeks back, and we decided to head towards DELIcious @ Bangsar village shopping Centre. It’s one of my favourite place to go. The ambiance and the interior of this place gives you a very family, cosy and relaxing feeling. As for the food served, I’m a fan of the yummilicious foodies here.

Beside celebrating mom’s birthday, we also celebrated my bro’s belated birthday, as he has just return backed from Aussie Land. So six of us (including the little one) headed toward bangsar for lunch.  Usually this place would be full by lunch time, but we arrived a little earlier and we could see people waiting in line to be usherd to their tables.

Delicious serves a variety of western, fusion and also out malaysian delicacies. The varieties of desserts are absolutely mind boggling. We started off with the French onion soup, topped with melting cheese crostini. We only ordered one to share - “the more the merrier” and also because the servings here are pretty large. We also had Caesar salad with smoked salmon. This dish is one of the reasons why i love DELIcious.

For the main courses, we had.. braised wagyu beef & mushroom pie served with a generous amount of greens.

Spicy Seafood Spaghettini, which looks so wonderfully yummies. It’s tossed in homemade sundried tomato pesto.

Mama’s beef Bolognese Spaghettini, the hubby’s favourite. Absolutely juicy.

Pan-Seared Cod served with Ratatouille. I love the flavours in the Ratatouille.

And for sides, we had potato wedges…with sour cream.

We were quite famished by the time all the food was done. I was eyeing on their dessert spread, but we had to skip that, as we were way too full. The price range here is on the average side, not too expensive and quite worth the money.
So if you’re keen on something yummies.. go try them out, if you do manage to reach the dessert, let me know what’s the best sweets on their menu.

one cold wet night…

7 Jan 2009 In: chinese, dinner, yummies

The weather was on a gloomy side… the pouring rain has just started to stop and it was still drizzling.
So what shall we do on such a cold, wet night? Lets do BAK KUT TEH! ( i have no idea what’s it called in english)

We were around the corner (in IKEA actually) so we took a drive towards the kepong LDP toll and headed for our yummy destination. This particular Bak Kut Teh shop is along the Kepong main road. It’s somewhere near the Kepong Jusco. We’ve been patrons of this shop for quite some time (even though we live quite a distance from kepong), but i particularly like the Bak kut teh here. The reason for it is because i find the base soup very refreshing and I love it’s chinese herbs. It does not have a whole lot of flavoring (ajinomoto) in it… and the taste of herbs are just too enticing.

Besides ordering the usual Bak Kut Teh, we also ordered the “zhu tho tong”- peppered pork stomach soup. Having this during a cold evening is bound to keep you warm the rest of the night. This little dish is made out of, pepper, chinese herbs, ginger and pig stomach. To me… wow… deliciously mouth watering.

With all that meat… to make the table a little more colourful and to keep a healthy diet… we also had the lettuce mixed with oyster sauce and fried shallots. And to top everything off….. chili padi for those whom loves chillies.

Besides all the dishes that we had, this place also serves, “zhu kiok cho”- vinegared pork knuckles..and “kai zhao”-drunken chicken.  The drunken chicken is a MUST TRY. I’m not much of a chicken fan, but the soup is absolutely delicious. This little dish is made out of chinese wine, chicken, red dates.. and more chinese herbs.

If you’re any where around kepong, be sure to go check them out, “Nippon Bak Kut Teh”. They are not hard to locate, so you have to keep your eyes open for the shop. They are open till the wee morning, so if you’re looking for a late night supper. go try them out.

A slow weekend

Ipoh Chicken rice… well that’s what popped up in my head… with the body and mind, both on a holiday…the best food to have was definitly the Ipoh “nga choy kai” A simple, refreshing delicious meal and the best place to have this would be @ Restaurant Satellite, along Jalan Gasing. The little coffee shop is located at the row of shophouses, near the KWSP building in PJ. It’s the corner shop.

The Ipoh Chicken Rice is usually served with ‘taugeh’ (bean sprouts)…. i’m not a big fan of rice… so when ever i’m there i usually have the “hor fan” (flat noodles). You have the alternative to have the chicken on a different dish. It kinda makes sharing food much more enjoyable. We ordered the Steamed Chicken instead of the roasted ones. But on the overall, both tastes as YUMMY. As for the bean sprouts, they are blanched and are served with a little soy sauce, salt and pepper.. and are juicy and crunchy.
Besides the main dishes… you must also have the meat balls. They are absolutely delicious and a MUST TRY!. The meat balls are very very tender. Dipping them in the famous garlic chili (chicken rice chilies) makes it even more yummier.

Restaurant Satellite has been around for more than 40 years. It’s the kind of coffee shop which brings you back to the olden days. The atmosphere, the table settings and not to forget, oldies playing on thier really cool and definitly old radio. If you’re observant enough, you’ll find a old record player on one of the shelves. It’s one place to enjoy a slow, peaceful weekend.
