Hutong Lot 10

Hutong, Lot 10 Shopping Center, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Hutong is an high class, air-conditioned and well-maintained food court in the KL city. It is located at the Lot 10 Shopping Center, it is just next to the Iseten Japanese supermarket. It is decorated with old decoration and display items and it is using all the old style’s tables and chairs. They are the famous stalls which you can find it around KL city. well-known eatery. Even I mentioned “high class”, the price of the food here is inexpensive when compared the price with other food court in the city.

My aunt wanted to eat the Penang fried kway teow with egg and the minced meat noodle from the Soong Kee Noodle for lunch, therefore, we went out to the city with the MRT, a little bit adventurous with her on the Saturday’s afternoon.

The stall which sells this Penang delicacy located opposite to the Bak Kut Teh stall. You cannot miss this stall when you are coming down from the side escalator as you can see some delicious pictures of the fried kway teow on the wall. If you wish to try the fried noodle with duck egg, they do offer it with additional cost. The fragrant from the fried noodle and the chili’s spiciness give a good kick. If you do not wish to eat spicy, you can tell them no chili.

Although I am not sure they are originated from which famous stall in Penang city, the cook does a good job. I guess the cook who prepared my plate of fried noodle is not a local, however, he has a good skill and with the fresh ingredients like cockles, middle sized prawns and bean sprout and the “wok hei” (heat from the wok), the fried kway teow still as good as those in Penang.

Next, we tried the minced meat and beef balls noodle from the Soong Kee noodle. You can find the original Soong Kee noodle stall in Petaling Street, the Chinatown in the KL city. I quite like their noodle cooks al-dente and it is not oily after mixed with the minced meat. More importantly, they add vegetable into the bowl of noodle which is rarely found. The taste is well-maintained, not overly done and it is not salty. The beef balls are handmade, springy and firm.

Again, I guess the workers are not local but they are trained and monitored by their local masters who eventually helped out to prepare my bowl of noodle with extra minced meat. My set of noodle comes with a bowl of four beef balls, a plate of vegetable and a cup of hot Chinese tea.

Caffe Bene

Caffe Bene, Sunway Velocity, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

A girl friend of mine reminded me to look for another friend to get the facial cream she bought from China. I asked my friend before this on how to manage the scars and pimples on my face.

She told me this worked pretty well on her face and she bought a new one during the one for one promotion. So nice of her! And, I am going to try it pretty soon.

Alright, back to my blogs’ updates.

As you can see the background of the picture above, yes, I took the picture while writing this post. My visit to Caffe Bene in Malaysia is countable, however, I think this maybe my first or second time. I looked at the menu and I could not find some special from the menu to try.

You know, whenever, I do not want to pick a new thing to try, I will always go for Latte. However, my friend ordered Iced Coffee Latte, so I have to order something different than his. I ordered the hot Mocha and he added a sliced of Peanut Buttter cake to share with. The cake is rich but not too sweet, yes, it is still sweet, it goes well with my cup of Mocha. Everything is well balanced, however, I would love to be given more options to reduce the sugar level.

The ambiance of the cafe is pretty good especially we sit at one corner and it gives us a lot of privacy and space to talk.

It has been quite long since we last met and I always wanted to share with him about my stories with my client who liked sometimes ago. I have been sharing it with some girl friends and their feedback almost the same and I wanted to see from the guy’s point of views toward this matter.

Besides sharing our updates with each other, we planned to visit our girl friend in Suzhou this year end. I am planning to go for a long trip after my project is completing.

McDonald’s Mix and Match

McDonald’s in Malaysia is having the mix and match for McBreakfast selection. I went to the McDonald’s located at Desa Pandan, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with my aunt last week, when I went back to KL for a short break.

The mix and match selection allows us to buy two items with a fixed price which I think it is quite worth especially we do not want to eat the hash-browns. We ordered the two sets of the Sausage McMuffin with Egg with coffee. Instead of the usual McDonald’s paper cup, this visit they used the McCafe’s paper cup.

Although there is some changes, the food quality remains the same and I love the coffee’s smell. I love spending the quality time together with my aunt especially I shared with her my work and my daily life in Singapore. She loves to hear all this stories from me.

Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant

Hong Kong Kim Gary Restaurant, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: LG – 69 & 70, Lower Ground Floor, Berjaya Times Square, No. 1, Jalan Imbi, Imbi, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It has been a while since the last time I visited Kim Gary in Mid Valley’s branch. I cannot even remember there is a branch in Berjaya Times Square until my friend said she wanted to have dinner here. I am glad to see the restaurant still offers various set meals which can easily take you a while to choose what you want to eat and how much you want to eat.

It did take me a while to look through the menu to decide what I wanted to order for the night and lastly, I chose to have a bowl of noodle, an half of the toast with chicken wing set which included a glass of drink. It seemed a lot, right? I was thinking the noodle would not make me feeling full and the additional of toast and chicken wing made the dinner more completed.

It was really sinful to have the toast at night but it has been quite long I did not have toast in Kuala Lumpur. It was nothing special about this toast and chicken wing, it tasted normal and slightly oily as usual for the toast. Besides that, I think they do not use butter, they gave me margarine instead. It did not taste good. No comment about the chicken wing, just a normal chicken wing.

Instant noodle with a piece of luncheon meat and a fried egg on top of noodle is the basic for a Hong Kong style instant noodle meal. Sometimes, you can find some vegetable and sometimes, you do not. It is normal instant noodle with MSG soup based and it is nothing interesting about it. I am not sure which instant noodle’s brand they are using. The noodle texture is spring, did not overly cook the egg and luncheon meat.

What interested me the most of that dinner was a glass of cold ying yong. It is a combination of the coffee and tea, one of the favourite drink in Hong Kong too. The ratio of the coffee and tea is important to get the right taste of the ying yong.

It was a night full with unhealthy food selection, the toast and instant noodle. Moreover, having the cold drink after the meal is not going to help the digestion at night but it satisfied my stomach!

Nadeje Cake House

Nadeje Cake House, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: SK-09, 2nd Floor, Mid Valley Megamall, Mid Valley City, Lingkaran Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It was quite disappointed during my visit to the Nadeje Cake House in Kuala Lumpur because the service at Mid Valley was not good. My previous two visits in Malacca were good and their staff were attentive. However, my third visit in Mid Valley did not turn out to be a pleasant. The waiters are foreigners and they are not as attentive as those local ones I met in Malacca.

Mistakenly, I ordered the cold Iced Cafe Latte with cream when I was so cold in the cinema before this. It was nothing great about their drink, maybe it was not their specialty. The background is the original favour crepe cake.

All of our cakes were mistakenly swapped with the table next to us who ordered three cakes as well. We took all the pictures of the caked before we were told they have made the mistakes. The above cake which we thought it was tiramisu but in actually, it was dark chocolate.

All cakes are same price, so to the waiters, it is fine, not a big deal to make such mistake. However, as a diner, my dining experience turns bad and I did not get to enjoy the cake I want to try.

Pig & Wolf

Pig & Wolf, Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
Address: 7.01.07 & E7.01.07 Level 7, Pavilion Mall, 168, Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It has been a while since my last visit to Pavilion and now, it has a new wing called Pavilion Elite with many branded outlets and restaurants situated at this new wing. Besides that, I came across a another new wing in the old Pavilion, the Level 7 which has plenty of restaurants there.

One of them is the Pig and Wolf. It is a non-Halal restaurant. My apologies to all my Muslim readers.

According to the Pavilion’s website, Pig and Wolf restaurant is a subsidiary of the popular 3 Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf. It is a casual dining restaurant that offers a mixture of Western and Asian cuisines. It offers from pork burgers, pasta to pork ribs.

Together with my friend, we explored this new restaurant. Initially, we wanted to order the set meal which comes with a soft drink and soup of the day. However, after looking at the a la carte dishes, we decided to order separately which we can have what we wanted to try.

During our visit they were doing a ‘Buy 1 Free 1’ promotion for the coffee’s menu which we both felt it was a better offer than having the soft drinks from the set meal. So, my friend picked the Iced Mocha and I chose the Iced Latte. Their coffee is just right and does not need extra sugar syrup.

My friend spotted the luncheon meat fries on the menu and we ordered one basket to share together. It is a simple appetizer which we can do it at home too. The luncheon meat is slightly fried and it tastes nice and crispy.

We ordered the Mighty Porky Burger which is one of the recommended dish on their menu. The presentation of the burger is still alright with some salads on one side and wedges on the another side. I liked the crispy and hot wedges. As for the pork burger, the pork patty is slightly dry.

We ordered the Pork Steak too which was recommended by the waiter. The meat was well marinated and strong garlic smell. The meat is juicier than the pork burger and it has the same side dishes.

Overall, the food portion is good enough, maybe they can improve the taste of the food to be more attractive. The environment in the restaurant is good and quiet, suitable for big group of people as there are plenty of long tables in the restaurant. We spent our afternoon here for lunch and coffee.

Lunch & Afternoon Tea, Malaysian Food

KyoChon

KyoChon, Malaysia.
Address: SkyAvenue Genting Lot T2-33, Level T2, Sky Avenue, 69000 Genting Highland, Pahang, Malaysia.

Last March, my friends and I went to the Genting Highland for a short trip in the afternoon. It was raining when we reached the Skyway station and the crowd waiting for the cable cars was quite huge. They were mainly the tourists from China and you can imagine how big the groups of people were there. Luckily, the Genting Skyway’s management has provided a separated queue for tour groups and normal visitors to enter the queuing area. However, it did not ease the human traffic and it took quite long to reach our turn.

The ticket of the cable car and the price for a standard cable car for each trip. It is a good money to earn! As we were at the new Skyway Station, the cable cars were new ones, more stable and comfortable with more space.

It was raining on that afternoon. Upon reaching the hilltop, I could feel the cool and needed to put on my sweater. I was having cough over the few weeks. We walked around to see which restaurant was available for us to have lunch.

Our first choice to eat at Madam Kwan but the restaurant did not serve a number of dishes due to shortage of ingredients. I was pretty sadden because I could not try the Nasi Bojari. Then, we walked around again and ended up at this Korean restaurant, KyoChon which my friend said quite nice. We queued a while for our table but it was a high-round table with high seat. I did not like this kind of seat and I did not like to eat facing outside of the restaurant whereby a lot of people walking around the area. Simply unsecured.

Even though we were hungry at that time, it still took us quite long to decide which set to choose from the menu and it took some time to serve the food too. We placed our ordered with a waitress who is from Philippines and she was quite attentive to our questions and orders.

I am not too sure whether we over-ordered our food. It did look a lot of food on our small table. We have three cold drinks (OMG, so cold still drink cold drink with ice), two plates of fried chicken, one with soy sauce and another with honey, some salads and three bowl of rice, kimchi fried rice, garlic fried rice and plain white rice. Yes, now I do feel we over-ordered the food.

Personally, I liked their honey fried chicken which was very well marinated and cooked. It tasted better than the soy sauce. I guess it is because of the additional honey coating on the chicken that makes it tastier and crisper. Let me share with you a closed up picture of both chicken. The top plate is the honey chicken and the bottom one is the soy sauce.

Their Kimchi Fried Rice is nice too with strong Kimchi and spicy taste. It comes with an egg on top of the fried rice. When compared with the Garlic Fried Rice, one may find the latter is normal taste.
