Uncle Chili's @ Hilton PJ, Petaling Jaya

>> Jul 29, 2010

Like I said in my previous posts, one can't find any good Western food joints in Subang Jaya. Hence, the need for me to venture out to PJ in search of Western Food.

Uncle Chili's is actually a bar situated in Hilton PJ. Being a bar, kids can only stay until 10pm, which is before the party crowd comes in. Bar food normally comes in larger much portions.

Crab Bisque

The crab bisque, which tasted quite similarly to lobster bisque minus the slight bitterness was very very good. It was thick, rich and creamy but somehow wasn't very filling (which is a good thing). I really enjoyed it. The bisque was RM19.



Seafood Pizza

The seafood pizza RM22, was highly recommended by the waitress. However, I was a little disappointed with it. It was a thin crusted pizza topped with prawns, squids and other vegetables. The prawns tasted somewhat unfresh (something was definitely wrong with the prawns). I didn't enjoy this dish. The portion was very big though.



Beef Burger

The burger however, made up for the crappy pizza. The burger came with a large, thick patty, accompanied with a slice of melted cheddar and few slices of bacon. I am a sucker for burgers (those proper type, not McD or burger king's). I was satisfied with this dish. The burger was RM22.



Angus Rib-Eye

This Angus Rib-Eye (RM59) was alright. It tasted reasonable and was slightly overcooked from what I requested (most places in Malaysia tend to do that). There was nothing exceptional about this dish.



Warm Chocolate & Amarula Pudding

The warm chocolate and amarula pudding was served along with macadamia nut ice-cream and peanut butter crunch. It was alright. It somewhat looked better than how it tasted. If you're looking for a good chocolate dessert, I reckon you should head over to Moxie or Opus. Their chocolate lava cake are very good.

All in all, certainly not bad tasting western food which were relatively cheap for their large portion. Definitely worth a visit.

Sang Har Mein & Salted Egg Yolk Crabs @ Restoran Robson Heights Valley Sdn, Bhd

>> Jul 28, 2010

Studying too much neurology in a day can serious cause trauma to the brain. How ironic huh? Anyway, I'm finding every excuse to procrastinate, so why not write up a new entry.

After hearing so much about Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant, I couldn't resist the urge but to try it. Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant is located 2 or 3 stone throws from Midvalley (Megamall). This place, as the name suggest, is located up a hill. Parking was very limited that night (although the restaurant wasn't very full).


Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant

The Si Tao Poh was kind enough to 'entertain' my fickle mind in picking my dishes. I was blunt enough to asked for the prices of the crabs and prawns before making my order. I didn't want to get 'cheated' as this was foreign territory for me. Anyway, the food didn't take long to come.



Sang Har Mein

The Fresh Water Prawn Noodles tasted somewhat similar to Soo Kee's. The only difference was it wasn't exceedingly salty (like my bad experience at Soo Kee). It was not bad, but I think I still favour Greenview's Sang Har Mein over Robson Height's. The fresh water prawns are RM120/kg no matter what style the prawns are cooked in.



Salted Egg Yoke Crabs

The Ham Dan Hai (salted egg yolk crabs) were very good. It tasted different compared to the ones found in greenview (different in a good way). The crabs were coated very evenly with the salted egg yolk. The crabs were also fresh and cooked well (the crab flesh didn't get stuck to the shells). I was quite satisfied with this dish. This dish was RM84 (RM56/kg).

All in all, a relatively satisfying meal that was saturated with lots of cholesterol (I personally feel that it is okay to indulge in good unhealthy food once a while). Robson Heights Seafood Restaurant certainly deserves a revisit. The next time round, I would like to try their crab roe rice that J2Kfm had.

Pan Mee @ Restaurant Swee Hing, Taman OUG, KL

My computer is dying on me. It keeps getting hang and I have to end up resetting it. I somehow feel that Dell computers have a tendency to start giving trouble after 3-4 years (which usually corresponds to the warranty date). To top it up, photobucket isn't being very helpful at the moment. I had to upload my pictures 10 times to actually get it uploaded. Anyway, enough digression. Back to the food.

When it comes to food in OUG, one can always get a relatively large variety of good eats. There is a choice of Hakka Noodles at Restaurant Yang Kee, Curry Laksa at either Restaurant Hong Beng or Ah Loy Curry House, Pork Noodles at Restaurant Sun Sea or Pan Mee at Restaurant Swee Hing (there's always Steven's Corner if you run out of choices). Anyway, those are the only places that serves okay food. Anywhere else in OUG and you will be quite disappointed.

Parking is a very big hassle at Restaurant Swee Hing. You better pray lady luck is on your side if you're trying for a parking around here. To make matters worst, there is always a long queue for the pan mee at this place.

One can choose for the noodles to be pinched my hand or rolled out with the machine. There is also a choice for it to be cooked dry or soup based.



Pan Mee

The noodles came with lots of minced pork, fried ikan bilis, some Chinese mushrooms, vegetables and a good sprinkle of fried onions. Tastewise, I would rate it as okay (my friends however swear by the pan mee here). I still prefer the Pan Mee at Lian Heng (SS19, Subang Jaya). The noodles are RM5 for small and RM5.50 for large. Mind you, the portion is quite big.

All in all, worth a visit if you somehow find yourself in OUG. If you fancy a change, you can also try the fried pan mee at Lucy's Stall in happy garden which is quite nearby.

Nasi Bariani @ JM Bariani House, SS18, Subang Jaya

>> Jul 23, 2010

When it comes to food in Subang Jaya, don't bother looking for your posh high end fine dining restaurant. You'll soon realise there isn't anyone. However, if you're looking for reasonably priced and okay soon, you have loads of choices then.

One of this places would be JM Bariani's House. Now, don't think Nasi Bariani is your ordinary cheap mamak stall food (mamak stall food is not cheap by the way). This Nasi Bariani is extremely expensive, so make sure your wallet is prepared for the damage. However, I guarantee you the taste won't disappoint.

Business must be booming as I saw an E class mercedes with the number plate JM outside the shop (probably the owner's). From what I heard, J and M stands for Jamilah and her husband Mustapa. They now have 7 branches to date.

Parking is plentiful. The waiting time for the food to arrive is extremely short (the food is all ready, all they have to do is scoop it up).

Note: pictures were taken using my phone.



Kambing Bariani (mutton)



Daging Bariani (beef)

The rice was very flavourful and aromatic. The mutton and beef were also very good. The bariani is more towards the mild side, just the way I like it. Not that I can't take spicy food, its just that when something is exceedingly spicy, it masks the taste of the other flavours. That 2 pictures above cost me about RM25.

All in all, this has to be one of the best bariani I've tasted (I haven't eaten much bariani though, other than from mamak stalls). I'll definitely be back for me. My only complain is was the 'milo ice' (iced milo) which was extremely sweet but tasteless.

Ah Loy Curry House @ Taman Overseas Union Garden (OUG), Kuala Lumpur

>> Jul 22, 2010

Situated opposite BP (in OUG) and behind Steven's corner, Ah Loy Curry Restaurant have been dishing out laksa for a good period of time now. One day, Benedict asked me to bring him out for lunch, and as we were near OUG, I thought why not head over to Ah Loy.

Note: this pictures are a couple of months old (didn't want to post them up because I took them with my phone, so pardon the slight noise in the pictures).

Anyway, this place is extremely pack during lunch hours. Parking could be a problem as well. The restaurant isn't exactly sparkling clean or anything, in fact, its more towards the dirty side. As they say, the dirtier the place, the better the food. I don't know how much truth is there towards that statement though.



Curry Laksa

A bowl of laksa is under RM5. It comes laden with cockles, fried pork skin, tofu pok, a choice of chicken or pork ribs (or both) and bean sprout. The gravy is extremely thick and very rich in santan (coconut milk). Eating a bowl of this laksa is considered a sin to the cardiologist. However, I assure you it is very good.



Pork Ribs

We also had a side order of pork ribs.

The total bill came up to slightly more than RM20.

All in all, Ah Loy Curry Restaurant is an okay place for curry noodles. If you're a big fan of extremely thick gravy, I assure you that Ah Loy is the place for you.

If you're dining there after 6pm, you can also try the pork mee from Hong Cha Restaurant next door. Hong Cha's cook is actually the same as Restaurant Sun Sea's. The cook will move over to Hong Cha after lunch hours in Sun Sea. You can also try the laksa at Hong Beng, which is also very good and situated in OUG.

Lam Mee @ Lam Mee Ya, Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

Well, I somehow found myself in Empire Shopping Gallery again. This time round, I chose to have lunch at Lam Mee Ya. I've actually been to their other branch somewhere in uptown.



Original Lam Mee

Lam Mee consist of those big fat noodles (used for Loh Mee and Hokkien Mee), cooked in a thick gravy, topped with prawns, shredded chicken, fried onions and basically anything else you want. The Lam Mee here was so-so. You can't expect much from a franchise now can you? A bowl is under RM10 (not exactly sure as the pictures somehow managed to disappear from my phone).

We also ordered some fried Sui Kow (dumplings) and meatball. The drinks prices here are comparable to a bowl of noodles. If its any consolation, the juices are 100% pure juice though.

All in all, Lam Mee Ya is one of those places that serves average lame mee. Convenience is probably their selling point. I know a lot of people who are willing to tolerate average food if its served in a good environment over having the best food in a crappy place. It all boils down to personal preference as hawker food taste different when served in a nicer place somehow.

Dinner @ William's, SS26/9, behind the old Lim Kok Weng Building

>> Jul 20, 2010

Ever heard of Murni in SS2? Well, if you haven't, shame on you. Murni is probably the most famous mamak stall in PJ. During peak hours (8pm-12am), tables could be seen being placed out on the pathway of at least 10 shop lots to the right and left of Murni's actual shop lot. Anyway, William's as the name entails, is a mamak/western food place own by the brother of Murni.

Williams is situated behind the old Lim Kok Weng building. My mother would classify it as one of those road side stalls that looks dirty, dusty and any other horrible adjectives she can think of. Anyway, from the looks of how dodgy and dirty looking William's is, I doubt I would even bother to eat there if I wasn't introduced to this place by a friend quite some time back. Parking shouldn't be a problem here.

The food are pricier than Murni's. They share a few similarities though eg: Ribena Longan, Mi Raja, Roti Hawaii etc. As to which place serves better food, it is subjective. Some people argue Murni's is better, some people choose Williams. I personally feel that William's serves better food.

The portion at William's are extremely big. Some of their dishes could easily feed 2 people.



Ice Blended Strawberry and Passionfruit



Mango Special

Each of the ice blended drinks are RM4. I actually ordered Ice Blended Banana and Passion Fruit (this drink can only be found at William's), but the waiter somehow brought me the wrong order. Being the nice person I am, I chose not to make him redo my drink. The Ice Blended Strawberry and Passion Fruit tasted too sweet and syrupy. I'll still prefer the banana and passion fruit over this. The mango ice blended was alright.



Meatball Carbonara

The meatball carbonara came with a good deal of beef bacon and beef balls. The beef balls were stuffed with Mozzarella cheese in the middle, giving it that nice, gooey texture when sinking your teeth into. The carbonara sauce however, wasn't anything special. The plate of pasta was priced at RM20.



Burger Triple H

I still can't really tell what the 3 H stands for. All I gathered was Ham. Anyway, the burger came with two large slabs of beef patty, ham and cheese with a side of mashed potatoes. The burger bread of stuffed with lots of planta margarin (that contains loads of trans fatty acid which can lead to cardiovascular diseases). As for the taste, it was alright. The burger was RM25.



Sotong Goreng (fried Calamari)

We also ordered a plate of fried Calamari to share. Calamari is actually a type of squid and does not mean fried squid which people tend to confuse themselves with. Although extremely unhealthy and oily, I always liked their fried Calamari at William's. That plate was RM15.

Other popular dishes at William's are the various types of Naan, Beef ribs, Steak, soft-shelled crab fried rice, pastas cooked either with tomatoes, cream sauce or Aglio Olio.

All in all, if you're looking for relatively cheap Western food that comes in extremely big portions, or you're looking for a nice place to hang out, head over to William's. William's is an extremely cool and funny guy. I especially like his inverted Mc Donald's logo shirt that shows a 'W' instead of M.

Char Kuey Teow @ Robert's CKT, Restaurant Say Huat, Seksyen 17, Petaling Jaya

Since my Penang trip last year, I've been looking for a good place to have CKT. I wanted to find a place that could put up a fight against the Penangnites. So when Becky blogged about Robert's CKT in Section 17, I had to go check it out.



Restaurant Say Huat

Robert's CKT is located in Restaurant Say Huat, situated opposite the section 17 wet market. The market is converted into a parking lot towards mid day (so parking shouldn't be a problem).

I had a very late lunch that day (So I can't describe my experience with the lunch crowd). Anyway, even at 2.30pm, I had to wait 10minutes for my CKT.



Char Kuey Teow at Robert's

A plate of the lucious kuey teow goes for RM4 (small) and RM4.50 (big). After all the hype about it, I was a little disappointed. The CKT was good, just not as good as I expected.

I found it rather similar to Seng Lee at Jalan Batai Damansara Heights (expect that Seng Lee's was a lot more burnt). Both had the nice wok hei and came with prawns and cockles. Contrary to what people have been saving about Seng Lee, Seng Lee's CKT took a down turn when the old man frying the kuey teow was taken over by a younger woman. However, after a brief downturn, the kuey teow has oncemore became relatively good again.

All in all, I think the kuey teow was alright. This place certainly deserves a revisit. However, I still think that the Char Kuey Teow around KL/Selangor is no match for the ones found in Penang.

Port View Seafood Village Sdn. Bhd @ Kota Kinabalu, Sabah

>> Jul 14, 2010

I was in Kota Kinabalu for the weekend (or rather 38 hours). Due to my extremely short time spent here, I was unable to sample any of their local specialties (fish noodles, roti kahwin, ikan bakar[grilled fish] etc). However, I did manage to eat a good deal of seafood on my first night there. Contrary to people's believe, the seafood there wasn't cheap (I'm talking about their higher end seafood restaurants in town). Eg: Ocean Restaurant, Port View Restaurant and Grand Port View Restaurant.

Anyway, I have to say that we made a wrong choice choosing to go the Port View Seafood Village. Initially I chose Ocean Restaurant, however as it was raining, we decided to not inconvenient ourselves and go to Port View which is opposite Le Meridien.



The various tanks of Seafood in tanks

Don't be fooled by the picture. It was a Friday night and most of their so called 'sought after' seafood were out of stock. The bigger king lobsters and some of their prawns were out of stock. To make matters worst, the service was utter rubbish. I had to wait 15 minutes before I could even begin picking my seafood.

The food didn't take long to come. However, they kept putting more dishes on the table even though we were not done with the previous dish yet. I had that 'rushed' feeling as I was afraid the next dish would get cold.

As for the food, we had to order 2 smaller king lobsters as they were out of bigger lobsters. This was rather disappointing as most of a lobster's weight are in its shell. Hence the bigger the lobster, the higher the meat to shell ratio in a lobster. It would certainly had made a nicer presentation as well. On the bright side, a bigger lobster 'might' have a slightly firmer/tougher meat. The so called 'king lobster' is known as Sabah lobster back here in Kuala Lumpur.

Check out my post about the various types of lobsters.



Sabah's King Lobster Sashimi

Unlike KL, the lobster sashimi was only served with wasabi and Japanese Soy Sauce. It didn't come along with that herbal broth for people who don't fancy eating the lobster raw. The Sabah lobster had a crunchier texture compared to the Australian Lobster. However, I felt that the extremely spicy wasabi didn't do justice to the lobster. I would suggest they provide milder wasabi for patrons to actually savour the delicate lobster flesh rather the taste of the wasabi. The lobsters were priced at RM260 per kilo. I'm not telling you how heavy the 2 lobster above were.



Deep Fried Garoupa with Thai Sauce

As one of our guest was a top surgeon in the states, he carefully dissected the fish into nice big portions for everyone. The fish was fried until crispy and the coated with a thai chilli sauce which was not exceedingly sweet nor spicy (This sauce certainly tasted much better than its bottle counterpart found in most hypermarkets). Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this dish very much. The grouper was RM80/kg. That fish was about 1.8kg if my memory serves me right. Anyway, to digress a little, I once caught a grouper that was 5 kilos.



Oysters baked with Cheese

As we were afraid of food poisoning, I opted for the oysters to be cooked with cheese. The other option was to have it with a good squeeze of lemon (and tobasco) or cooked with garlic. The cheese oysters were nothing great. I've tasted better. The oysters were RM9 each (cooking it with cheese cost RM2 more).

Next we had a kilo of soft shell crabs cooked with salt and pepper.



Deep Fried Soft Shell Crab with Salt and Pepper

Soft shell crabs are one of those 'specialties' of Sabah. It is relatively cheap in Sabah. A kilo of soft shell crab here is RM80. When compared to the vegetables which was RM30 and the Tofu which was RM50, the crabs suddenly appeared much cheaper. Anyway, the crabs were deep fried till crispy and then stir fried with salt, pepper and bits of garlic. It was good.



Tiger Prawns cooked in a Wet Butter sauce

As they were out of most of their prawns, we had to go for 'medium' sized tiger prawns. The medium is about 100grams each (100grams is very heavy for a prawn, try weighing your prawns bought at the market). The large was almost double the size of the medium (the large cost RM40 a prawn). The medium cost RM170 per kilo.

Taste wise, it was decent. This style of cooking isn't found in KL. However, it didn't do justice to the prawns. The waitress told me this style goes very well with the prawns. Unfortunately, I think she was wrong. I still preferred my prawns to be steamed with egg white and Chinese wine. Cooking prawns with minimal seasoning brings out the natural flavour of the prawns.

We also had their restaurant specialty tofu and the famous Sabah 'chai' (vegetables in Hokkien).



House Specialty Tofu

The tofu was surprisingly good.



Sabah Vegetable

I shall not comment on this dish as I didn't get to try this dish. Its not that I don't eat vegetables, it was all gone before I could get a chance to try it. Anyway, I shall not complain. I had more of the other good stuff (haha).



Lobster Noodles

The remaining bits of the lobster shell from our previous dish was cooked with noodles. The noodles were decent but nothing to shout about. Sabah's version of lobster noodles varies a little from the KL version.

All in all, the food was decent (not exceptional). The prices were just a tad bit cheaper than KL's (they cook it better over here though).

The next morning, we were told that another group of people went over to Ocean Restaurant to eat. They told us that they really enjoyed their food and unlike us, didn't encounter any 'out of stock' signs pasted beside the various aquariums.

Anyway, it was a pretty short trip to KK. Apart from Port View Restaurant, the only other place I went was the Fillipino Market next door. I was too caught up with some last minute changes in my presentation. I certainly would like to sample more of KK's food places. I might even plan a diving trip to Sipadan while I'm at it.

Note: I bought a 2.7kg Deep Sea Chicken aka Hoi Tai Kai / ikan ayam back from Sabah. Can't wait to eat it this weekend.

Restaurant Overseas @ Plaza Armada, beside Armada Hotel, Section52, Petaling Jaya

>> Jul 7, 2010

Since my elder brother is back for 2 weeks before starting his job in London, I have been going out very frequently for meals. This time round, we decided to go the Restaurant Overseas in Plaza Armada (the restaurant that can be seen from Federal Highway when going to KL from Klang/Subang.

Apparently this place has a few very good dishes. Restaurant Overseas is famous for their char siew and their siew yoke. Their Tai Tao Har (Big Head Prawns) cooked in soy sauce is also remarkable.



Boiled Nuts

Alright, I only put that picture up as I liked the photo. Nothing spectacular about the nuts.



Char Siew, Siew Yoke & Duck

The char siew was good. It wasn't very burnt as requested. However, I must say the Siew Yoke was exceptional. The skin was so crispy yet soft. I don't really know how to describe it but it was good. The duck was ordinary.



Hot Plate Tofu

This tofu has to be one of the worst I've tasted. Seriously, was quite disappointed with it. Word of advise, don't order this.



Kangkung Belacan

One word, ORDINARY! Its just that we had to have some greens to complete the meal.



Big Head Prawns cooked with Soy Sauce

The prawns were incredibly good. It was something like caramelised soy sauce which was sticky and thick, that somehow coated the prawns and tasted very very good. The prawns had such big heads filled with roe, which when burst open resembled half boiled eggs. Seriously, this was darn good. On the down side, I don't know how much cholesterol I consumed that day but it was worth it. This dish alone was RM160. We had a total of 3 prawns in total. Each prawn was cut into 3 pieces (the prawn was darn big).



Crab Meat Fried Rice

We ended our meal with crab meat fried rice. The fried rice was done very well. I was very happy with it. Talking about fried rice somehow make me recall of another good place for fried rice - Imperial Garden. Actually Imperial Garden Restaurant is situated less than a stone throw away from armada hotel.

All in all, the meal came up to slightly more than RM300 for 5 people. I didn't foot the bill. For the size of the prawns and the way it was done, I was certainly quite happy with the meal. Overseas serves one of the best char siew and siew yoke around.

Anyway, I'll be heading of to Kota Kinabalu, Sabah this Friday for a presentation. Hopefully I'll be able to indulge in some good seafood over there then. Until next time.

Ngau Lam Mee @ Restaurant Chong Loy, Bandar Sunway

>> Jul 1, 2010

Kurau King once told me about this place located near tightlines (the tackle shop) in Bandar Sunway. He claims that the ngau lam (beef tripe) served here is one of the best around. Regarding Kurau King, the *diot gave me the klang marine police phone number when I asked him the phone number for the fish market in Klang. Being a little suspicious of the number, I googled it and realise it wasn't the number to the fish market. When you have friends like this, who need enemies? For that, I'm gonna steal his picture and use it as my own.



Restoran Chong Loy

That shot was taken by Kurau King, but its now mine. Wahahahaha

My brother and I decided to order a bowl of ngau lam mee each, and some char siew and siew yoke to share.



Ngau Lam Mee

The ngau lam mein was very flavourful. The beef parts were surprisingly good. I'm actually not a big fan of 'spare parts' but I somehow finished all of mine. So, if people like me can end up liking it, I suppose people who actually like ngau lam will find it exceptionally good.



Char Siew and Siew Yoke

The char siew and siew yoke were ordinary. Nothing special at all. The only positive point I can think of is that it wasn't burnt.

All in all, the meal came up to a total of RM20 which is a fair price. I certainly wouldn't mind returning to the place for ngau lam. Until next time.
