Extra Super Tanker @ Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya

>> Sep 30, 2010

Everyone has their favourite Chinese Restaurant these days. Likewise, my uncle swears by Extra Super Tanker. What kind of restaurant name is that you ask me. Well, the owner thought it was catchy. Truthfully, it is catchy, won't can forget a restaurant that has such a name?

Anyway, parking is aplenty at night as most of the shop lots along the same row will be closed.



Double Boiled Chicken Soup

The soup (RM5 per bowl) was a refreshing start to the dinner. Each bowl came with a nice piece of chicken, some dried scallops and some Chinese herbs. It tasted alright. No complains here.



Char Siew & Siew Yuk



Roast Duck

The Roast Meat (RM35) and Duck (RM85) were served together. The Siew Yuk had a nice crackling skin, followed by a layer of fat and meat. It was one of the better siew yuk I've tasted. The char siew wasn't bad either. The Duck was well seasoned and roasted evenly. The duck skin wasn't as crispy as Loong Foong's, but the dish on the whole was reasonable.



Roast Duck Skin in Mantou with Fried Cruller

I guess now I realise where the crispy part of the duck ended up. This dish is seriously unhealthy. The interior of the man tou was saturated with oil of all sorts (the duck and the cruller). Taste wise, it was rather good.



Steamed Marble Gobi

The steamed soon hock (seasonal price) was done rather well. It wasn't overcooked and the sauce certainly did justice to the fish.



Salted Egg coated Prawns

The prawns (seasonal price) were coated so evenly with that nice, addictive layer of salted egg yolk. This dish hit the right note for me. Screw the cholesterol man, you've got to enjoy yourself once in a while (just make sure the food justify the high cholesterol intake).



Green's to fulfilled the daily vegetable intake

The vegetable (RM20) had a nice 'wok hei' (wok flavour which is usually achieved by frying something at a very high heat). With such flavour, I wouldn't mind eating a meal entirely of vegetables.



Tofu

The bean curd (RM25) were rather ordinary.



Hot Chinese Dessert

We ended the meal with a few Chinese dessert to share. This picture above (RM5) was boiled dried longan, with ginkgo, red dates and sea coconut. It was ordinary. We also had the boiled red bean with sesame seed filled Tang Yuan. The 2nd dessert (no picture sorry) was certainly better than the first.

All in all, Extra Super Tanker served up relatively good food at a reasonable price. I met 2 friends with their family that night (proving the food must be good to attract such a crowd).

Anyway, instead of the usual Halal/Non Halal sign I usually put up and since I'm ever so nice, I'll share this video my friend sent me below. Enjoy, and have a good laugh. I certainly did.



Babi = Pork

Cheers and good night.

Pork Noodles @ Restaurant New Seaview, Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya

>> Sep 26, 2010

When it comes to Pork Noodles, the usual place people think about would be Pomander (at SS15 Subang Jaya), Kean Fatt (at SS3) or Sun Sea (at OUG). Alas, there is another hidden treasure located in Paramount Garden that could give those places a run for their money. Yes, that place is called Restoran New Sea View.

Parking is always a hassle at Paramount Garden. My suggestion is to park along the road to minimize walking time (I'm not responsible if you come back to a ticket on your car windscreen).



A bowl of Pork Noodles

The Pork Noodles is RM5.50 (for large with a poached egg). Taste wise, it certainly contained way less Mono Sodium Glutamate than Pomander's. Although the soup had a distinct porky taste, I found the flavour of the soup to be towards the mild side. It wasn't bad, but I still preferred Kean Fatt's Pork Noodles over this place.

Note: Talking about MSG, I recently read a publication about a study being done on infant rats and MSG. Apparently, MSG is a neurotoxin to infants. So you parents out there, do take note.

All in all, I wouldn't purposely make a trip here just to have this noodles, but if I'm in that vicinity, why not?

Rakuzen @ Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

>> Sep 23, 2010

Back in the days, Rakuzen use to be this exclusive high end Japanese place that the Japanese expatriates rave about (emphasis on BACK IN THE DAYS). Since then, Rakuzen has been taken over by Super Dining, the company who owns all the Rakuzen, Sushi Zanmai and Pasta Zanmai outlets in Malaysia. They even own Kura (at One World Hotel) and Zen (Sunway Pyramid). The problem with expanding at such a pace is that the quality of the food is bound to drop. Oh well, you can't have the best of everything.

Anyway, its not all bad. Now, they have another outlet in Empire Gallery Subang, meaning, less queue in their SS15 branch.



Soft Shell Crab Temaki

The Temaki is made up of a large chunk of soft shell crab wrapped with some cucumber, sushi rice, mayonnaise and topped with flying fish roe. The roll here was pretty similar to their other branches. The crab was crispy and nice, and the rice portion was just right.



Salmon Sashimi

The Sashimi (RM22) was relatively fresh. No negative comment about this dish.

Note: Their fish comes in twice a week. Kindly ask their branch manager ahead to know the days for their delivery.



Crab Salad

The sauce certainly bound the salad (RM28) together. I would say, this is certainly a good way to have your daily dose of vegetables.



Scallops Hot Pot

This hot pot (RM28) is actually a seasonal thing. Apparently, the ingredients for this dish are from Hokkaido. It tasted ordinary to me.



Prawn Tempura

The prawns were crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. It was fried till golden brown and not overcooked.

All in all, no complaints about my food here. I hear that the service can get bad when the place is crowded. This outlet is certainly up to par with their other outlets (I've been to all their outlets except for the one in Chulan Square). I recently had some problem with their Plaza Damas outlet. So, when I have nothing to say, I guess its a good thing. I wouldn't say this is top notch Japanese food, but it certainly wasn't bad either.

Until Next time.

Crabs, Oysters and more @ Hang Sing Seafood Restaurant & Catering, Port Klang

>> Sep 19, 2010

Back in the days, before King Crab even existed, before discovering the existance of Greenview and before massive seafood restaurants like Unique Seafood, South Sea and Pantai Seafood existed, my parents use to take me to this humble, slight shabby restaurant for crabs. Back then, the only way into Klang would be through Federal Highway, where one would have to brave the jam for hours. Now that they have complete a new fly-over past Klang town, the journey seems much shorter. Alas, when my younger brother suggest we head over there for Oyster Noodles, we chanced at the opportunity.

Anyway, Hang Sing Seafood Restaurant has been in business for more than 30 years to date. I use to remember coming here for Oh Chien (Oyster Omelette), Oh Mee (Oyster Noodles) and crabs. We use to think that this is the only place that would charge their crabs accordingly (back then, big restaurants use to scam you off your seafood (hence our reluctance to have crabs else where). Then again, crabs were considered expensive food back then.

As Klang folks usually dine quite early, the restaurant was relatively empty when we arrived. We ended up ordering 7 dishes for 4 people (the amount my brother eats would put a pig to shame). My apologies for the names of the dishes (I don't know their English translation).



Yong Tao Fu

The various combination of stuffed vegetables with fish paste were fried until extremely crispy and coated with some sweet chilli sauce. A nice way to start off our meal.



Kam Heong Lai Liu Har

Kam Heong is a Chinese cooking method where a dish is fried in chilli, dark soy sauce and dried shrimps. Lai Liu Har (mantis prawn), or a direct translation from Cantonese - Urinating Shrimp, is a type of prawn that has 2 praying mantis-like fillers that seriously hurt like hell if you get hit by them. In the picture above, the flesh of the prawns are removed from their hard shell, coated with flour and deep fried till crispy. The meat is then cooked in dried chilli, dark soy sauce, dried shrimps and some vegetables for garnishing. This dish was fried to perfection. The sweet caramelised sauce certainly gave the shrimp a nice flavour and that slight spicy flavour gave it a nice kick.



Oh Mee

This version of oyster noodles can only be found at this place (I haven't found anywhere else who does it like this). The noodles are those plump noodles used for hokkien mee. Even the sauce is quite similar. However, adding the oysters brings out a totally different flavour to the noodles. The oysters are local oysters (not those giant imported type). This dish is so good, that even people who dislike oysters wouldn't mind eating it. What more if you love oysters? This was the highlight of the night. We ended up ordering 2 plates of this noodle.



Oh Chien

This oyster omelet is unlike the one found in Malacca. The omelet contained less flour and actually resembled an omelet, unlike the mashed up version in Malacca. I still preferred the Malacca version or the Penang version. This dish would probably come in second best, beating those random wannabe oyster omelet fryers in food courts.

Note: preparing local oysters is actually really tedious work. The restaurant owner told me that they rather use the smaller oysters as it has more flavour. The thing with using small oysters is that you have to end up shucking more of them to get a similar amount.



Zhi Hun Ken

I have no idea what this dish is called in English. However, I do know that it is made up of yam and tapioca flour. They yam is steamed/boiled until soft and mashed up. Tapioca flour is then added to kneed the yam into a dough before shaping them into noodles. The noodles were soft but contained that nice chewy texture. Most restaurants in Klang have this dish.



Steamed Pomfret with Bee Hoon

If you've had steamed fish with salted vegetables, tomatoes and white tofu, imagine adding beehoon to it. This is one of their specialty that (like the Oyster Noodles) can be found else where.



Sweet and Sour Crabs

Sadly, with all that good food, this dish probably came in last that night. The sweet and sour crabs were ordinary. It didn't taste bad, but I personally felt that the consistency of the sauce of a little too thick. I've cooked better crabs than these.

All in all, this place is one of those hidden treasures in Klang. The dishes are probably a little unhealthy, but most of their dishes are spot on. With the completion of the new highway, the crazy Klang jam isn't even a problem any more. The meal came up to RM177 which is very cheap for crabs, fish, oysters and mantis prawns. For directions, check out the map below.

The Noodle Room @ Hilton Kuala Lumpur, KL Central

>> Sep 15, 2010

I have been very very busy lately, hence the lacking in 'quality' post. The truth is, I haven't been going out to eat for quite a while now.

Anyway, let get down to the food.



The Noodle Room

The Noodle Room is situated on the ground floor of Hilton Kuala Lumpur. It is right beside Sudu (one could order food from Sudu too). As the name of this place suggest, this restaurant specialises in noodles. All sorts of noodles, from hor fun, soba, yellow noodles, yee mein, loh shu fun. You name it, they have it.

The menu in this place is rather unique. One gets to choose from chef suggested noodles, or one can customize their own noodles. To customize your own noodles:

1. You pick a stock. The choice of stock available is dashi stock, Japanese curry, chicken stock, egg gravy, beef stock, fish coconut broth, kon loh, tom yam, KL Laksa (I've heard of Singapore laksa, but not KL's).

2. Then you pick a noodle to go with the stock (egg noodle, ramen, dang myun, shanghai noodle, spinach wonton mee, E-Fu, Flat wonton mee, rice noodle, udon, hor fun, soba, yellow noodle, low see fun, mee suah).

3. Next, you choose 1 ingredient for your noodles (seafood, beef-slices, chicken, char siew, wonton, vegetables, fish ball, fresh water prawn, crab meat, roast duck, beef ball, ostrich).

4. Finally, you choose 4 garnish to go with your noodles (coriander, mint, seaweed, spring onion, bean sprouts, choy sum, fried shallots, fried garlic, chilli, sambal, belachan, green chilli pickle, chilli padi, minced garlic).

Easy huh? Each bowl is RM29.

Anyway, we started with a couple of appetizers.



Soft Shell Crab

We ordered a large portion to share. The Crab (RM45) was fried until crispy and served with some rockets, avocado, mango salsa and lime mayo. The mayonnaise was spot on in cutting the slight oily texture of the deep fried crab. This dish was good.



Pai Tee

The Pai Tee came on top of some thai chilli sauce (which requires immediate consumption). It was not bad. The shell of the pai tee wasn't soggy YET and the prawns were relatively big and fresh. Sorry about the pathetic picture quality.



Two Sides Brown Noodles

This is actually a nest of mee suah served with water chestnut, peking duck slices, bamboo shoots, some shitake and lots of ginger. For me, the ginger was too overpowering. All I tasted was spoonful after spoonful of ginger. The noodles (RM32) sure looked better than it tasted.



Clay Pot Loh Shu Fun

This dish lacked that slight burn bits of fried lard in it (This blog should not be held responsible for any lard responsible myocardial infarction, but lard certainly does bring out the flavour in noodles). I guess the hawker near my place still makes better LSF. The clay pot loh shu fun was RM32.



KL Laksa with Duck

All I tasted in the laksa (RM29) was chilli. Seriously, it lacked spices and most importantly, SALT. After 2 spoonful of it, I told the waiter to take it back. He suggested adding some table salt to it. To make matters worst, their salt shaker was stuck. Even after adding salt, it still tasted like chilli water. The waiter eventually took it back and replaced me with another (He was very polite about it, as expected for such a place). A while later, he came back and told me that yes, the chef seriously screwed up that bowl of laksa (the chef tasted it and found it bland too). The 2nd bowl of laksa tasted slightly better. Although packed with slightly more flavour this time, I still found it to be substandard.



Burger (from Sudu)

The burger was reasonable. However, it wasn't a match for the daily grind at Bangsar Village.

All in all, if you're after the best noodles in town, you won't find it here. I guess the hawkers still have a nitch when it comes to noodles. However, The Noodle Room certainly makes a good place to sit down and chill over a bowl of hot noodles in a rather comfortable environment.

South Sea Chinese Seafood Restaurant @ Kampung Subang Baru, Selangor

>> Sep 13, 2010

Back in the days when the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah was still the national airport, everyone knew about the seafood restaurants situated along that stretch. However, many of those places have since closed down. One of the remaining places who stood through the sands of time is South Sea Seafood Restaurant. This restaurant has gone through a massive renovation and with mass media advertisement, been doing better than ever.

Their trademark is live seafood that are kicking. Yes, all of their seafood are displayed in tanks for you to choose from. There are a couple of other restaurants doing this too (Unique Seafood and Pantai Seafood etc). Their seafood are probably from the same supplier, hence the similarity. They had an assortment of crabs, clams, fish and oysters. One of their main attraction is their Red Mahseer, aka Red Kelah (from Kelantan river) and Empurau Fish (忘不了) which is originally from the Rajang river in Sarawak (the ones here are probably cultivated). They look quite similar, but are in fact a totally different species. The empurau can grow much bigger. Priced at RM700 per kilo, it is easily one of the most expensive fish in the restaurant. The fish can grow up to larger than 10kg.

This time round, we didn't have Alaskan King Crab, or anything of that magnitude. Do click here if you are interested to read about the King Crab.

Note: Pictures are taken using my phone (hence the quality)



Australian Lobster Sashimi

As with most other seafood at this place, the lobster is charged based on its weight (RM36.80/100grams). For a brief write up on lobsters, please click here. The lobster above is about 1kg. When eating sashimi, nothing much can go wrong, as long as the lobster is fresh. I prefer to have my lobster raw but for the faint hearted, you could always choose to dip it into the hot herbal concoction.



Siong Thong La-la

Lala cooked in a Chinese soup like sauce (RM15). Most of their dishes come in either small, medium or large, depending on how many people are eating. The sauce was tasty with that nice touch of Chinese wine. The problem with this dish though, was that some of the lala were probably dead. The best part was they removed half of the lala's shell, hoping that diners won't be able to tell (dead clams usually do not open up when cooked). For someone who buys his own seafood from suppliers in Klang, they sure picked the wrong table to serve dead stuff.



Chicken with a cream based sauce

Sorry guys, I have no idea what the name of this dish is. The waitress mumbled something in Cantonese and claimed that its very good. The chicken (RM25) was extremely crispy on the outside, but still moist on the inside. That cream-based sauce wasn't too over powering. I wouldn't say that it tasted extraordinary, but it was edible.



Kam Heong Crabs

Malaysian Mud Crab cooked in a spicy mix of dried shrimps. Normally, I do not fancy my crabs cooked in this style, but since South Sea claim to specialise in this method of cooking, I decided to give it a try. Personally, it tasted ordinary. Almost any Chinese restaurant could duplicate that same flavour. The Malaysian Mud Crab is priced at RM36 per crab. One could also opt for the Sri Lankan (RM48 per crab) or Australian Mud Crab (RM98 per kilo). Although the Australian crab is huge compared to the Malaysian variety, how different can mud crab be?

All in all, I personally will not come back here (although I know a lot of people who likes the food served here). The food ain't cheap. My personally conclusion of this place is that the chefs are not up to pare. With such fresh seafood and that hefty price tag, one would expect to get top notch food.

E-San Thai Kitchen @ Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya

>> Sep 11, 2010

I'm quite pissed right now, my post just got deleted and blogger showed me some lame *** error message when I clicked publish (time to change to wordpress). Somehow, I didn't save a copy this time round.

I'm gonna make things short, since this is going to be my 2nd time typing this up. E-San Kitchen is located in the so called 'Taipan 2'. There are countless of places claiming to be the next Taipan, but I doubt anyone has as successful as the original place.

Anyway, the food industry in Ara Damansara somehow did not take off even though the place has loads of residential houses.

Down to the food, E-San Thai Kitchen was empty on that Sunday afternoon. Frankly, the only reason I went there was because it was either Do Re Mi (the hawker centre behind) or this.



Seafood Tom Yum Soup

We had a choice of either clear soup or the reddish version. We opted for the latter. This (small) portion of tom yum (RM15) was enough to feed the two of us. It was a little too sour but I liked it this way.



Fried Soft Shell Crab

This soft shell crab (RM35) wasn't very good. The crabs were coated in some thick floury, tempura-like batter before being deep fried. I don't really fancy eating deep fried batter when I ordered something else. On the bright side, they didn't overcook the crab.



Pineapple Fried Rice

The rice (RM20) was reasonable. That nice tinge of curry powder gave it a nice fragrant smell that certainly helped with the appetite.

All in all, the food presentation certainly lacked finesse. Taste wise, it was average food with a slightly higher price tag.

Note: Sorry about the short post, this is my 2nd time rewriting the same post so do understand.

Famous Seremban Siew Pau (烧包) @ Warong Seremban Siew Pow, Jalan Rasah, Seremban

>> Sep 7, 2010

When it comes to siew pau, everyone knows you can find the best ones in Seremban. So one day after my postings (this pictures are quite old), we went in search of siew pau. We came to this place called Seremban Siew Pau. In truth, they probably supply half of the siew pau outlets in KL as well, but anyway, nothing beats getting it from the source.



Warong Seremban Siew Pau

Is it me, or they can't spell? Maybe they spell differently in Seremban (No offence, I'm just pulling their leg)



Siew Pau

The Siew Pau is priced at RM1.20 per piece. Truthfully, their filling wasn't that great. The pastry however, was flaky and nice.

All in all, this place is probably worth a stop to get something for your friends and family if you are in Seremban. You could always go to their main branch (Empayar Seremban Siew Pau @ Taman Bukit Kepayang). Address to the main branch is listed below.

Balinese Cuisine @ The Waterlily Bistro, Mutiara Tropicana, Petaling Jaya

>> Sep 4, 2010

When Megan suggested we go to Waterlily Bistro in Mutiara Tropicana, I agreed without knowing that Waterlily Bistro is actually one of the many branches of Ole Ole Bali with a different name (If I knew, I wouldn't have agreed and now I hope she doesn't read this). Hence the 100% similarity in menu to Ole Ole Bali's.

Anyway, as I have to get back to 'nerding', I shall make this short and sweet.

We started off with a jug of barley lime (RM18 per jug). A jug fills about 4 cups.



Barley Lime

The glasses came with a folded up pandan leaf for presentation sake. After all, they had already dumped a ton of pandan flavouring into the barley lime. Nevertheless, it tasted nice and refreshing.



Squid Salad

The salad (RM14) was nice and refreshing with too much of a zinc from the lime. I found it a little too sour but it was still edible.



Trio

Trio (RM38) as in 3 things consisted of BBQ wings, Sate Lilit (fish sate on lemon grass stalk) and Cumi-cumi goreng (fried squid). This is more of a finger food to go with drinks. However, we had it with a side order of rice (RM2). The sate lilit was nice and tasty. The squid was crispy and golden brown.

All in all, the food served here is reasonable. It wasn't fantastic or anything but it was edible (you can't expect too much when you come to a restaurant part of a chain). The bill came up to RM80 for 2. Verdict: reasonable food at a slightly expensive price.

Restoran Kepala Ikan Segar @ USJ 4, Subang Jaya

>> Sep 1, 2010

If you're looking for a relatively cheap meal around USJ, you should check out Restoran Kepala Ikan Segar. The dishes here range from RM10-RM30. The owner idea was to serve up tasty food at a cheap price.



German-style Fried Pork Knuckles

The knuckles are coated in a thin batter and deep fried until crispy. Accompanied with that slight sour yet sweet sauce, this dish is really a delight. I will order this dish every time I frequent this place.



Hot Plate Tofu

This place really does a very good hot plate tofu. I would go as far as to say that the tofu here is even better than the hot plate tofu at other bigger restaurants like Overseas Restaurant. The tofu is nice and soft, and comes served on a hot plate coated with egg.



Steamed egg with century egg and salted egg

The combination of of the saltiness from the salted egg white with the nice different texture of the century egg, the harder salted egg yolk and the softer steamed egg really made it a good dish.



Steamed Fishhead with Garlic

The big head carp head was alright. I don't really fancy eating fresh water fish as they are easier to culture and I have no idea what the fish farmers feed them. This fish was reasonable.



4 types of Vegetables cooked in Sambal

This is one of my favourite vegetable dish around. The vegetables here were crunchy and tasty.



Bitter Gourd with Salted Egg Yolk

I am not a big fan of bitter gourd. I don't mind eating it but I wouldn't say its enjoyable. For me, this dish didn't work. The bitter gourd didn't go well with the egg yolk.

All in all, this is a friendly neighbourhood restaurant that serves up cheap and tasty food. The food may not be that healthy but an occasion indulgence is alright I guess.
