Ong Kee

Whenever we visit to Ipoh, Perak, we will make a trip to this Ong Kee Tauge Ayam restaurant for the steamed chicken. Its rival shop named, Lou Wong also located at the same street of Yau Tet Shin Street, Ipoh. I have not been to Lou Wong before and therefore, there is no comparison made at the moment.

Steamed chicken

I personally do not prefer to eat steamed chicken because of its taste and the fatty skin. There is no exception case for this chicken too. Besides that, the portion for four person looks pretty small.

Simple steamed chicken goes well with hor fun (keow teow) or rice.

Hor Fun

You may order additional dishes such as bean sprouts which is very famous in Ipoh, fish balls or meat balls. A gentle reminder for those who want to order bean sprouts, they put a lot of white pepper on top of it. If you do not like to eat white pepper, maybe you can ask the waiter to exclude it 🙂

Seed Cafe

I pretty miss my lunch buddies, that is why, I want to write this blog. We went to Seed Cafe to have our beautiful lunch and it was a surprising finding. Other than its services is slow, the rest of it are still alright. Here is our meals,

Thai fried rice is one of the good try.

Nasi lemak is one of the set lunch menu. Plenty of ingredients inside, it looks yummy!
Seed Cafe

Creamy mushroom spaghetti was a so-called vegetarian spaghetti because it did not have any meat inside besides mushroom. The creamy sauce and the overall taste were just nice to finish it until empty like below:

Chicken chop with wedges and salads came in a pretty big portion and it was very filling for girls.

Kyung Joo Korean Restaurant

Hey, I am trying out their kid meal which they did not stop me from ordering it. Korean Instant Noodle with half of boiled egg, crabstick, sausages, some vegetables and seaweed.

We ordered the gzoya and a pancake to try among us, that is why I opt for kid meal in which the food portion is smaller than normal meal.

Gyoza
Kyung Joo
It is nothing special for this gyoza which consists of vegetables.

Pancake (Pajeon)kyung joo korean restaurant
It is pretty nice pajeon, but a bit pricey. I guess most of the pajeons are pricey.

Address: T-049, 3rd Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Dome

This entry will talk about my food finding at Dome Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, a continuous story from the previous entry. I ordered the Long Macchiato, a double shot of espresso infusion topped with steamed milk.

And then a Tuna Pizza. Thin crust tuna pizza topped with generous amount of tuna and onions.

This branch is surrounded by shops in the shopping complex, so the ambience maybe slightly different as compared to Bangsar Shopping Centre.

Dome

After the Paya Serai’s Fish and Chips, we headed down to Dome at Bangsar Shopping Centre on another week to try its version of Fish and Chips. My aunt said the Fish and Chips here is very nice and can be shared by two person.

Scones

Scones

We started with appetizer… Hmm, scones? Yes, their scones are pretty nice. It was quite warm and soft when it was served. I do not prefer to eat creamy stuff, however, it goes well with the cream and raspberry.

Chai Latte

Chai Latte

This is my favourite drink at Dome, Chai Latte. It is Chai tea extracts with cinnamon, clove and ginger with steamed milk. On top they put some cinnamon powder. Maybe, it is because of the cinnamon taste makes me like this drink.

Fish and Chips

Fish and Chips

Ops, no… It is fish and wedges in Perth style. Why? Because they gave us the vinegar sauce. Two big pieces of fish bedded with wedges and salad. This time I gave a try to dip the fish into the vinegar. Eh… It does not taste weird. It is a good blend after eating the fish with tartar sauce.

The overall ambience of this cafe is good, it is a good place to sit down and watch the world goes by. I personally prefer this branch over the Pavilion KL or The Gardens, in Mid Valley.

Paya Serai

On the last day of utilizing the PJ Hilton‘s vouchers, my aunt and myself drove all the way to PJ to have lunch together. It was very surprising to know that the Chinese restaurant was full house on that day, so we went to Paya Serai. Even here, we still have to wait for table as they were serving high tea from 12PM to 5PM.
Paya Serai

Without much hesitation, we ordered Fish and Chips and Cordon

Just a normal fish and chips with a big bowl of potato fries.
Paya Serai

It was my first time trying the Cordon Blue and I was not sure about the actual taste of it. Overall, these two dishes were quite dry for me and slightly less taste. It could be better.
