Sakae Sushi

Sakae Sushi, a Japanese restaurant used to be at KLCC but now has moved to Fahrenheit88, the nearest one. It used to be located at the top floor next to the Nippon Tei, another Japanese restaurant that has been closed too. It was quite a lot of people eating here. The overall environment was quite crowded with people, the table is quite small as compared to Sushi King.

Unique parts of this restaurant are the tables are installed with monitors where you can browse for your sushi and make orders. Besides that, they give te green tea in tea bag if you order hot ocha. There is a hot water button at each table where you can add or refill hot water on your own.

It is slightly different style than the rest of the Japanese restaurant but still offer great food. It was my first visit too and I went with few friends for dinner. We ordered some sushi and bento set to share among us.

Soft shell crab
It is good to eat while it is still hot and crispy. Dip it into the sauce or you can eat it just like this.

Bento set
This bento comprises of rice, soup, chawanmushi and the main dishes are, saba fish and chicken teriyaki. Oh, the sauce is not enough, you can add on the teriyaki sauce on the table.

Rice, soup and chawanmushi
The chawanmushi is very smooth with quite generous ingredients inside. I saw something like a shark fin but I don’t think they will give you real shark fin πŸ™‚


Next, we also ordered some sushi which prices between RM1.90 to RM6.90.

Cucumber with crabstick

Tuna

Prawn

Fish eggs

On another visit to Sakae Sushi at One Utama, I got to try out other type of food that they offer. Some nigiri sushi; egg, unagi and salmon

Salad

Teriyaki Chicken Bento

Dessert – ice cream cake
It is a vanilla ice cream cake with red bean in the middle. It has green tea flavour too. You can find this cake at supermarket as well.


Green Tea


Location:
Lot 1-27 (03) & 1-27 (04), First Floor, Fahrenheit88, 179, Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Malaysia.

Lot 10 Hutong

After the closing down of the Lot 10 Hawker stalls about 1 year ago, it came out with a new concept. With the new idea, they bring in some of the most famous food in Malaysia. It turns out to be a high class food court. It’s non-halal food court.

The minimum price for a meal at this food court is around RM7.90. They do serve desserts and drinks. Here is some of the food that I have tried so far.

Kam Lian Kee Hokkien Noodle
This is one of the famous hokkien noodle stall at Petaling street. In Lot 10, they offer two type of fried noodles, the Hokkien fried noodle and the Cantonese fried noodle.

The portion of this Hokkien fried noodle is rather small. I think it is because each time they cook it for two portions and separate it into two plates when it is done. Uneven portion could happen in such a case πŸ˜›

If you are ordering the Cantonese fried, the portion is reasonable because it has quite a lot of gravy.

Both noodles are well done (enough “wok hei”). Good to try.

In addition, they sell dessert too. The “lin koh” sandwiches in between of the sweet potato and yam. It is a nice delicacy and not many places you can find this.

This is how it looks like when you bite it πŸ™‚

Soong Kee Beef Noodle
Another famous one from Petaling street. It is using the wanton noodle as the base of the noodle and it is dry type. They spread some minced pork on top of the noodle and they also give you a bowl of soup. Its standard set comes with 6 pieces of pork balls.


If you want to compare with Shin Kee Beef Noodle, this meatballs are a bit harder and Shin Kee beef noodle can choose have other types of noodle instead of just wanton noodle. Β It is definitely two different style of beef noodles and both are nice to try.

Hon Kee Porridge
It’s from a famous porridge stall at Petaling street. This stall offers set orders as well as ala-carte. One of the set orders is the mixed porridge. It consists a few ingredients inside the thick, smooth porridge. As shown below, it consists of quarters of century egg, sliced chicken, pork balls and raw fish. You can order a bowl of porridge with individual ingredients.

Other add-ons are available. One of it is the yao tiu. It goes well with porridge. It’s very filling after finish eating this bowl of porridge.

Fried Keow Teow
Just another fried kway teow. I think this is not the Penang fried kway teow because it tried this back in year 2010 when there was no Penang food stall in Lot 10 Hutong.

Pork noodle
It says it is from Jalan Imbi and I wondered which kopitiam it means. I guess this stall should from the shop opposite the Honda car showroom in Jalan Imbi. It gives generous amount of noodle and pork balls. You can choose either soup based or dry type. If you order the dry type, you’ll be given a bowl of soup as shown below. The taste of the soup is good enough to ask for more.

Loh Mee
A pretty big bowl of Loh Mee. It uses the thick yellow noodle with some thick gravy. Besides the 2 prawns, it has same meat and meatball inside. Nothing much special.

This set comes with a spring roll and soup.

Location:
Lower ground floor, Lot 10 Shopping Centre, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Madam Kwan’s

My first try at the Madam Kwan’s restaurant for lunch gave me a good impression. Before this, I was told that Madam Kwan’s food is quite expensive than before this. It’s true. Almost everything that we eat nowadays has increased its prices.

Madam Kwan’s has few branches and I tried this at the Bangsar Village. I was recommended to try their signature dish Nasi Bohari.

Nasi Bohari
Looking at its size in the menu, I think I would not be able to finish it. So, I didn’t order it. This is the look of Nasi Bohari. If you don’t eat beef, you can opt for chicken. They replaced the beef with rendang chicken which tasted good too. Then, it has some assam prawns. Quite fresh and tasty too. Some cucumbers, tomato slices and half of the boiled egg as garnish. The nicest one is the drumstick.

Drumstick close up
Oh my God. This drumstick is crispy and tastes good, a lot better than the KFC one. It really has the home-cooked taste drumstick because the meat is marinated nicely before fried. Usually I don’t eat the chicken skin but this skin is crispy and not oily. It is still crispy after a while but it’s good to eat while it’s hot.

Curry Laksa
This noodle is nice too. The laksa is rich with santan. It does not look watery like those normal stalls sell at food court. Similarly with the one from Malacca Jonket street. You can choose to have yellow noodle or meehoon or mixed. Inside the noodle, it has some chicken, 2 prawns, beansprout and beancurd. To make it tastes better, squeeze some limau kasturi juice into the soup and add shrimp paste.

Ice Kacang
After having hot stuff, order a bowl of Ice Kacang helps to reduce your body heat. Quite a lot cendol inside with cincau, nuts, raisins, red beans and sweet corns.
