Kinsahi, Aeon Tebrau City

Recently when I was on business trip to Johor, I went to Aeon Tebrau City for shopping....Well, kononnya the biggest Aeon shopping mall so must visit visit lo...

So after som walk, the empty stomach start to make noice thus my colleague and me start to search for food and we saw Kinsahi. Well, it was a restaurant by a corporation which have chain of restaurant serving fresh japanese food and delicious taiwanese food.

Sadly to say, their branches are currently available in Johor only.

Kinsahi is a restaurant that serve japanese food especially the shabu shabu. So we decided to eat the chicken set for one person. I order miso soup and my colleague go for tomyum. There is few soup selection and lots of sauce to choose from.

Well, cut thing short, lets the photo do the talking....

*** Is not halal so we order one chicken and one pork set....I can tell you, the meat is superly nice...Very thin layer with minimal fats but they give quite a generous portion....worth trying..

Restoran Jun Kee

Again this is super duper outdated posting but bear with us because we are really busy with our schedule and blogging now become our 'freetime' activities.
Anyway, Restaurant Jun Kee located in Taman Midah somewhere behind Public Bank. My friend and I decided to celebrate 'ren ri' also known as 'human day' where chinese believe human was created by god on the 7th day of Chinese New Year.

So we place our order days before our arrival as booking is required to ensure speedy food serving.

We have timeslot of 8.30pm until they close shop and thus we arrive on time but was mistreated with full house. So we spent quite sometime waiting for people to cabut so we can sit down. We know our food have been pre-cooked and I already don't expect the food to be hot.

We were sitted after about 15 minutes of waiting and we start arranging the chair, pouring the hot tea (yes, sound like waiter right) and the 'real' waiter start serving all our food. So my guessing is correct. All food is the air cond is blasting like no body business. But what can we expect on the most crowded day in the restaurant. They even miss out our salmon fish low sang. We insist to low sang before start eating and this cause another 15 minutes delay.

Imagin all those cold dishes are now turning into icy cold (ok, a bit too kua chong) but u know what I mean....

So here is our order.

Ying Yong Choi Sam (I hope i get the name right)
Basically it was choi sam been cook in two way, the leaves was chop into small pieces and deep fried while the stem of the choi sam is pan fried. Verdict: Ok cold. Would be better if it was hot..

Claypot chicken
Nothing to shout about as it was very common food in chinese restaurant but I must mention that the taste is strong and it wasn't that salty or sweet. Just nice. Again I am hoping that the claypot can make it hotter but was it turn out cold as well.

Marmite spare rib
I like this dishes although it was quite common in normal chinese restaurant. Credit have to be given to the marmite sauce as it was not too sweet and it does not have the bitter taste (which some restaurant overcook it)....The meat is lean and not that fatty. However the portion was too big that we end up having about quarter of it been wasted.

3 emperor (Sam tai thing wong)
Basically it was 3 vegetable been pan fried together. Brinjal, lady finger and long beans been pan fried with garlic and a toss of chilli. Taste OK but I eaten this dishes better in other places.

Golden Tofu
Tofu been fried to golden and crispy serve with mince pork. I like this a lot because I am a bean curb person....I finish big portion of this....and it was the first dish been cleared by all of us.

Last we have prawn.
I dunno what prawn is this and it I dont really remember the taste. I wont say it was bland butI would say the sauce wasn't that special for me to remember. It taste like prawn been pan fried with soy sauce serve with lot of spring onion. It taste sweet and a bit salty on other side.

The yee sang turn out to be below average.

I would say the restaurant was good. There is a lot of wedding dinner been held here as well. But I guess they cannot cope with the number of patron on that day and the food quality have been compromised. However I will go back and have a try again somewhere next time but I will make sure that there is not much people this round

Ocen Restaurant, Tanjung Sepat

Recently I went to Tanjung Sepat with the gals to celebrate Wan Ying birthday. Basically Tanjung Sepat is a small fisherman village. Nothing special there except there is some plantation to visit and the forever 'not so romantic' lover bridge...

I am not sure whether it was human natural thought or is a norm that people will associate seafood to fisherman village or anyplace where there is beach. Just to inform you that Tanjung Sepat is not famous for its seafood actually. No doubt there is hundreds of seafood restaurant but not all is sedap sedap belaka lo...

Since we went there without any planning thus we eat at Ocen Restaurant. One can never miss this restaurant as it was located directly next to the Lover Bridge overseeing the muddy beach and of course the view of sunset.

As it was a hot day and some are getting sick with sorethroat we ops for non spicy non fried food.

We order one fried rice to go along with our kongpo mantis prawn, steam white promfet and sweet and sour crab. Oh not to forget some green...We order sweet potato leaf

Fried rice was good. The 'wok hei' is enough to bring up the aroma though there is not much of ingredient it it.

Sweet potato leave is nothing to shout about. We order this because we need some green stuff to go along with our heavy food.

The kongpo mantis prawn is a total disappointment. Being Klangite, I have try many place serving mantis prawn and I had never try such a bad kongpo mantis prawn

The steam promfet is by far the best food we have. The fish were fresh and it was lightly salted with soy sauce and ginger. However, I wish there is more sauce to go with the fish as it get kinda dry after a while.

Well, crab is a must according to the gals. However for me, this crab is just 'off' mode for me. Frankly I know i can somehow cook better than me. Sorry to say my mom cook better sweet and sour crab.

The crab is small size and the sauce is just too sour for my liking. I think they just pour in ketchup and fried with the crab. Nothing to shout about.

Total damage is RM 127 inclusive of 4 coconut drink and few other drink to crunch our thirst....It was a hot day anyway.....

Yut Kee

I probably no need to mention much about this restaurant as it was already so well know among KL people and even tourist....

Situated at a silent road of Jalan Dang Wangi, a few stone throw from Dang Wangi LRT station, this nostalgic restaurant stand proud with their Hainanese breakfast. I had heard about this restaurant for years but have no chance to eat there until last weekend.

My intention is to try the roasted pork that cost RM 14 for 2 small slices or RM 140 for a roll. Basically is pork been rolled up and roasted. However I dont have the chance to taste it as there is no roasted pork serve during that time. You can view the roasted pork photo from the following blogger.

There is a lot of nice food in the restaurant and basically everything is nice. They are famous for their Roti Babi, Hainan pork chop, chicken chop, marble cake, Hainan noodles, Roti Kahwin and many more.

As there is only 2 of us,I consider our order as a little too 'tam chiak'. We order Hainanese chicken chop, Hailam bee hoon, Roti babi and our greedy stomach also lead us to Tapau one marble cake and one kaya swissroll.

The Hainan chicken chop was really good. By far one of the best I ever tested. Although the portion I get had a small portion fried until burn but it taste good with the sauce. The sauce was well seasoned and the potato is soft in the inside and a little bit crunchy. Is just awesome.

Roti Babi is a must order food in the restaurant. Is somesort of French Toast with some babi and onion inside. The first time I taste it, I thought it was Tuna because the testure of the pork seem to be Tuna. The reason being, the chef have chopped the pork into such a small pieces and cook it with onion that it turn out almost the same texture like Tuna. The babi with the french toast combination is just too good to describe. c

The Hailam bee hoom came last. By the time it arrive we are already almost full. However our big appetite do not stop us from finish it. The taste of the bee hoon is a bit soaky but the aroma of 'prawn paste' (hope I get it right) that bring out the aroma. As I am not a prawn person, Sam have to finish up the portion mostly by himself. Hehe

Just before we left, our tam chiak mouth decided to take away a slice of marble cake and a slice of swissroll, thanks to those blogger who superly recommend the marble cake here
Well, I have no regret ordering this 2 cake...Our car is full of the cake aroma once we close the door. The aroma is so seducing that we finish the cake within seconds after we start driving off from the restaurant
By the way, when we left the restaurant the crowd start to built up. If you arrive by 10.30, dont be surprise that the queue is few shop long and if you are those who 'pantang' to share table, my advice is you bring a big geng or friends or family or else I suggest you detour to other place. Is very common you have to 'tarp thoi' in this restaurant.
