Old Chang Kee

Old Chang Kee, Chicken Porridge.

When it comes to the old label, Old Chang Kee, many of us surely tried all their fried food especially their curry puff. I like their curry puff too, occasionally we will order it for party or any other occasions. Also, I love the Old Change Kee, chicken porridge with the yau tiao. It is a breakfast set and always sold-out early.

The porridge is well tasted but I feel it would be better if they can adjust the amount of the white pepper in the porridge or put it as an option for people to add it if they want to at the counter.

The hot porridge mixes well with sesame oils and white pepper and eat it with the yau tiao, a Chinese fried dough, as you can see the long fried stick on top of my porridge. Dip the yau tiao into the porridge and it will become soften, easy and delicious when you bite it. It is a filling porridge or breakfast meal which it worthy to buy for breakfast and you can have late lunch.

Yoshinoya Hanamaru

Yoshinoya and Hanamaru Udon
Address: Lot T-015B, Level 3, Mid Valley City, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

I was at Mid Valley on the 2nd day of the New Year with two other friends. It was a public holiday in Malaysia. My friend introduced this Japanese restaurant to us when we were asking for a location for that night’s dinner. It is located next to the Muji store at the 3rd floor center court.

My friend and his friend wanted to try this restaurant sometimes ago but it was full house. During our visit, we waited a while for a table for three people. I went to this restaurant again a week later, when two of my Singaporean friends came down to Kuala Lumpur for weekend. My friend wanted to have Japanese food and her boyfriend suggested to try this Japanese restaurant too!

The Yoshinoya offers the rice selection and the Hanamaru offers the udon and tempura on their menu. On both visits I tried their udon selection instead of the rice because I do not find the rice selection is attracting.

First visit, I tried their on of their udon on the specialties menu, Mentaiko Mayo Bukkake. Mentaiko mayo, the cod roe mayo is quite commonly used as sauce for udon and pasta in some Japanese restaurant. It comes with soup and dry version. For this first try, I tried their dry version, while my friend’s boyfriend tried the soup version on my second visit. Both of us gave our thumb up!

I love the mentaiko taste which goes well with the plain udon and it does not require to add extra sauce as it has a strong taste, a little salty, savoury. They put quite a generous amount of the mentaiko mayo to mix with the udon. My friend asked me if a bowl of udon would be enough for me as dinner. Initially, I thought it would not, but I was wrong, the mayo can make my stomach feel filling and the udon is thick, springy and generous amount.

I recommended to my Singaporean friends to try during my second visit to this restaurant a week later for our lunch in Mid Valley. Her boyfriend said the same thing and to him, it is worthy to eat here.

The second udon which I tried Tori Dashi Udon from their standard menu. And, I made a wrong choice because the clear and plain soup is tasteless. Their soup broth is made of dried kelp and sardines, so I wonder why the soup can be tasteless. Besides that, the shredded chicken meat are tasteless too, I feel it would be great if I added some soy sauce to make the whole bowl of udon tastes better. This udon needs some improvement.

I tried the chicken karaage, the common Japanese fried chicken and it is just alright for my taste bud. I saw another table was having 4-5 chicken karaage on their plate. My friends tried their tempura too. The price for the fried stuff is not expensive.

The restaurant serves drink as well and you can check out the drink counter at the center of the restaurant, otherwise, the Japanese green tea available too. The food may look small in portion but it is still filling with other add-on from the counter. This Japanese udon restaurant seems like a fast food restaurant. I am not sure if this restaurant is an Halal restaurant or not and they do have Malay people eating in this restaurant.

I feel thankful to have two groups of great friends trying out food with me over this weekend. Thank you so much for my friend who introduced this Japanese restaurant and then I recommended my Singaporean friends to try the same restaurant too. Also, thank you for my Singaporean friends for the lunch treats. If time permitted, I will try the similar concept restaurant in Chinatown, Singapore!

Pizza Hut

Pizza Hut, Taman Maluri, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Just like normal Sunday, we will head out for lunch especially whenever I am back in KL. It is more convenient for me to settle my lunch outside and get prepared to leave for Singapore. One of the choices is the Pizza Hut. We ordered the set lunch for two persons which consists of a bowl of spaghetti, a pan pizza, a side dish and two mushroom soups.

Their Chicken Bolognese is very delicious, saucy and rich. I like it and will prefer the pasta to be cooked al-dente.

The side dish for this visit, we are able to try something new from Pizza Hut. They offer the creamy fondue with garlic bread. It looks pretty good with the presentation. The creamy fondue is rich and it goes well with garlic bread. Eating the garlic bread alone, do not have much taste, unlike the traditional garlic breads.

Address: 52, Jalan Jejaka, Taman Maluri, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Pizza Hut

On the eve of the Chinese New Year, I went to the Pizza Hut to grab my late lunch with my aunt. We bought two sets of combo 2 which consists of a personal pizza and a bowl of mushroom soup. It costs MYR7.90 for this promotion combo set.
Pizza Hut
We chose chicken sausages and sliced chicken for our pizza.

It is really a simple pizza with chicken sausages and chicken ham, cubed pineapples and different sauces. The mushroom soup which I think could be instant mushroom soup and it is thick.

A&W

A&W do you miss them?
The Coney dog is one of my favourite in A&W menu. Although it looks simple, the crunchiness of the hotdog whenever I bite through it makes me always want to try it again. And it never go wrong with the root beer. I chose not having the float because of getting the set which comes with the curly fries. The worker added in the vanilla ice-cream by accident and I got it for free.
A&W


This whole set meal can easily make you feel very filling. Give it a try if you have not because it does not have many outlet around in Malaysia.

Burger King Breakfast

Burger King has introduced their new series of breakfast, the Boss of Breakfast. So without hesitation, we tried it and we conclude that Burger King’s breakfast still need a lot of improvement if they want to be as good as McDonald’s.

It has few sets to choose for this breakfast offer such as The Family, The Boss, Joe Swiss, Sunny Swiss, Big Egg-O and The Hit. All comes with a cup of hot tea or coffee and a hash brown.

The Joe Swiss is pretty nice and the meat is juicy, but the whole burger is too saucy, or I should rephrase it, the sauce is overflown because of the mushrooms’ sauce. Overall, it is nicer than The Boss. This is how The Boss looks like,
Burger King
This burger has 4 levels, the patty chicken, cheese, egg and chicken ham. It is not saucy, a little dry and a bit tasteless. Then, the hash brown is big piece but it is not crispy after we left it colds down. We did not upgrade our coffee to other types and their coffee still not comparable to McDonald’s Arabica coffee.

Keep it up and improve more 🙂

Burger King

Unbelievable I wrote one entry only for Burger King when I am a patron to this restaurant located in Mid Valley Megamall and Petronas at Dataran Prima. Burger King is famous for its whopper, and I did try their Jr. Whopper some time ago in Mid Valley’s branch.

When I said some time ago, it means I cannot recall how does the whopper taste. It was few years back, and I think it is good, else it would not become famous for nothing, right?
As usual it comes in a set with a drink and fries.

This is how it looks like when I unwrapped it.

If given a chance to visit Burger King during my lunch time, I would love to try again the chicken mushroom burger which I wrote an entry about it, https://liyenz.wordpress.com/2011/07/02/burger-king/
