The moment we heard people mentioned about Fa-Ying, we have random thoughts over some fine dining Chinese restaurant as a almost similar surname struck our mind; Fa-Mulan. Haha.
Do pardon us as sometimes we like to relate names
Perhaps someone should open a chic Chinese restaurant and name it Fa-Mulan
As we are pretty sure most of you would have known that Fa-Ying means “princess” in Thai, excepts us *slaps forehead*, Fa-Ying is under the same management of Rama V located at Jalan U-Thant (Oh, this we know!)
Fa-Ying by Rama V is a new concept restaurant from the multi award-winning Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine. Through Fa-Ying, here’s how the connoisseurs of fine Thai cuisine present a new modern style of enjoying Thai food in a casual chic setting. Another conceptual Thai dining that incorporates a contemporary mix of Thai flavour plus a more playful setting while on the other hand, Rama V carries the classy call.
We’re pretty impressed with the cosy ambiance plus beautifully unrestrained pleasure of the Apsara dancers carved in stone on of the walls. However, when it comes to the food topic, we personally thought that it was quite a let down or perhaps were anticipating too much.
Thai Fish Cakes – RM12
This would be the best dish that we had among the others. The fish cakes were well marinated & has great texture. Even very tasty without the dipping sauce.
Spaghetti with Thai Green Curry Pesto – RM22
The basil that they put in was way too empowering till it steals the aroma of the pesto as well as green curry. The chicken slices were very dry too
Fa-Ying Seafood Fried Rice – RM20
Mango Sticky Rice – RM16

Rendezvous: A popular gathering place
A decent shop nestled at the row of heritage shops along the famous Lorong Hang Jebat is named after the above meaningful word. It’s indeed a gathering place from both the East & West, people from different places, a place for people like us to gather for good Melaka fares.
Famous for their Nyonya Chang or Nyonya Dumplings and Cendol, we decided to pop by for a change of venue from our usual Jonker 88 Cendol Spot along Jonker as well.
We’re pretty attracted to their Nyonya Chang as many would visit East & West Rendezvous for them.
Upon reaching, we were asked to wait as their current batch of dumpling finished fast.
While waiting, we had their other famous shares:
Cendol – RM 2.50
Their normal signature Cendol comes with sago bits, cendol, red beans that was brimmed with fine shaven ice. Have always love how they drizzle the Gula Melaka all over along with fragrant coconut milk that adds the aroma. Great thirst quencher!
Durian cendol – RM 3.50
For durian lovers, it’s a great kick for a hot afternoon!
Nyonya kuih – RM 1
Being a huge fan of Nyonya kuihs, Rempah Udang Nyonya have always been our favourite! Fragrant and spicy dried shrimp sambal wrapped around with glutinous rice coloured with Butterfly Pea Flower. Thumbs up!
Here’s comes the long awaited Nyonya Chang that we love!
And we even bought some back home to KL too!
A beautiful bluish dumpling coloured by the blue pea flowers filled wth generous portions of their homemade fillings that ignited our palate: minced pork, mushroom and some wintermelon that added the hints of sweetness to it as well as the spices that they used to elevate the overall fragrance. Must try!
The yummy fillings

Cafe Tai Lei Loi Kei (大利来咖啡室)
Populated by both locals & visitors, this is a MUST VISIT if you’re at Macau. This place serves great milk tea and highly recommended as the most delicious pork chop buns in Macau!
No, we’re not boasting, as the crispy and succulent pork chop buns are freshly made daily from 3pm onwards and usually sell out by around 5pm!
Yes, this was what we boasted about Tai Lei Loi Kei Pork Chop Bun 大利來記豬扒包 during our visit to Macau previously.
And this popular Macau rave has landed in KL about 2 weeks ago! Joining the bustling food court at Lot 10 Hutong, this new comer from Macau needs not much of an introduction as it’s recognition as Macau’s best Pork Chop Bun has been pretty overwhelming.
Juicy pork chop with their secret recipe of savoury sauce sandwiched between crispy bun and it doesn’t need any extra dressings or sauces.
Signature Pork Chop Bun 豬扒包 – RM11.20
Love the flavours & the meat texture.
Well, if you ask us if they are good when compared to the Macau’s version, we’re quite judgemental by saying the original Macau’s version is much juicier. Not to mention that this KL’s fare isn’t great, but we thought there were just slight differences. When spoken to the boss about this slight matter, he quickly rush to their kitchen to check. Thumbs up for the great effort
Supreme Pork Chop Noodles 猪排面 – RM11.30
We would say this pork chop is dryer than the one within the bun. However the noodles were springy.
Macau Curry Fish Balls 澳門咖喱鱼蛋 – RM5.90
Love them as they were as good as Macau’s And good to know, even Macau’s outlet is using fishballs from Malaysia!
Have to praise their curry as it is very well flavoured with spices & infused with the chilies zing
Sawdust Cake Dessert 澳门木槺蛋糕 – RM5.50
Highly recommended by the boss, and we would love to thank him for giving us this little treat to end our meal.
Also known as Serradura in Portugese, this sawdust cake carries an intense milky aftertaste thanks to the mixture of whipping cream and condensed milk. Added with the finely crushed biscuits flakes, it created different layers with different texture

Nibbling on the kushiyaki 串焼き + yelling kanpai 乾杯! = Oishii Oishii Oishii おいしい おいしいおいしい !
Kushiyaki better known as the grilled skewers that encompasses poultry & non-poultry/ vegetable skewers, has been a popular snack or mains for Jap food lovers. Seiji Fujimoto, the owner of Sanuki Udon that specializes in Udon & the famous Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 that is empowered with Yakiniku has decided to bring more yummy surprises for his loyal patrons.
Maruhi Sakaba 大众秘酒场
A latest addition to Seiji Fujimoto’s empire in Taman Desa, specializing in kushiyaki skewers and a few other selections. Looking at their Chinese name, it literally meant “the secret drinking place”. Also located at the Plaza Faber, it’s not placed at the back alley like the Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 do, and please take note that Maruhi Sakaba has no English signboard. The signboard is fairly small to be noticed at night while you’re passing by down the road as it is also not lighted up like the other signboards do. Fret not, just look out for Public Bank as they are located on the same row.
Here’s Maruhi Sakaba. The first thing that would catch your attention would be their DIY table with stacked up beer cartons near the entrance. Pretty innovative eh?
Packed with people
Here’s the busiest station. Hustle bustled with the non-stop working staffs grilling to your needs. An advise to sit near the entrance at the tall table made with carton stacks as the area is less stuffy
Green Soybeans – RM3
Some Edamame to start off for all.
Egg Rice – RM7
Besides the wholesome selection of proteins (meat skewers), they also offer a few carbs selection like this Egg Rice.
Let’s get started with the main stars that we ordered!
Thigh – RM4
Skin – RM4
Gizzard – RM4
Chicken Wing – RM4
Belly – RM4
Shoulder – RM4
Tongue – RM4
Enoki rolled in Meat – RM5
Tomato rolled in Meat – RM5
Shiitake Mushroom – RM3
Eggplant – RM3
Japanese leek – RM3
Mixed Skewers (Chicken & Pork)
Recommended by the staffs that we must order this, it was just lovely. Dip it into the yolk and munch in for a smoother texture. Drools.
All the items are well marinated and in fact, some are a lil’ salty. Overall, the meat texture & aroma was great. Even without the dipping sauce, they are well flavoured. Also, Mr Fujimoto himself was down on the floor serving his customers with big smiles. A very hardworking man
However, Chris and I still personally love their sister stall: Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 as we love their open up concept as well as the Yakiniku of course.
Chicken Skin in Mustard Sauce – RM5
Maruhi Sour (the Kettle Cocktail) – RM45
Best to be shared A in-house cocktail that tasted like plum juice but made me turn red in minutes!
Asahi Beer – RM11 per bottle
Asahi + grilled skewers! The best!

During our “rather young” courtship years during school days, Chris would usually brag about one of the “very nice” Chicken Rice stall near the Kajang Wet Market. This place is pretty famous for their Char Siew (BBQ pork), Sesame Chicken & the owner’s significantly “different” behaviour. Most locals here would know he’s not a very patient man. Try talking to him nicely & he’ll not be as sarcastic when it comes to taking your orders You’ll get what we meant when you’re there.
Most Kajang folks would know Leck Kee 叻记. FYI, Leck Kee has now shifted to Kajang Prima, no longer selling near the Kajang wet market, according to the boss himself
Here’s a source:
Some time ago, NTV7 and Guan Ming Ribao apparently had a TV show to select the Top 10 chicken rice restaurants in Malaysia & one of them was Leck Kee 叻记, well known with a temperamental chap who’s in charge. Though listed as Top 10 chicken rice restaurants, most people would love their Char Siew even more. Besides, they are also famous for their Sesame Seed Chicken. During their wet market days, we have to be early if we plan to have our lunch there as their Char Siew & sesame chicken will be sold out before 1pm.
As their business has expanded into a shoplot in Kajang Prima, patrons don’t face this problem any longer
And they are also selling Wanton Noodles as well as Curry Noodles. Don’t forget to add Char Siew! Sweet, succulent & juicy with good proportions of lean meat & fats.

We know we have been slacking pretty much on our travel posts, but we vowed to finish them
fast. Faster. *Ahem*
Chatuchak Weekend Market
We have been contemplating whether to put this tourist attraction into our travel itinerary or not before visiting Bangkok. Why say so?
Here are some drawbacks:
However, after we outweighed the cons with some pros thats we thought of, we wrote down “Chatuchak” on Day 2 Bangkok.
Whats made us get there despite the drawbacks above?
Tips: It is advisable for you to sort of plan your Chatuchak route first before ended up walking round & around the same section of different Sois (streets) that has booths selling the same stuffs as the market is HUGE. Imagine 27 acres. And you will end up complaining “HOt & Nothing to BUY”.
We went to Chatuchak via a metered taxi arranged by our hotel in the morning. Always remember to take a metered taxi! Upon reaching, we decided to have a quick breakfast just right outside the market, along the main road. Nothing really great to shout about. So we personally advise you to chow down on the more delicious snacks inside the market instead.
We were pretty sure on what we wanna get at that particular time. Thus we concentrated more on clothing, decorations, handicrafts & collectibles as we were there for Wedding shopping.
Do you know that these are actually miniatures?? So cute!
We did’t really have a proper one but ended up satiated with the snacks & buns they sold at the small booths.
Try some Chatuchak’s Siew Yoke (roasted pork) & mandarin orange juice!
Remember to bring a trolley along in case you shop a little MORE.
Shopping at Chatuchak could be real tiring. Why not stop for a coffee break?
We stopped by Meede Cafe, a petite stall located at Section 25 Soi 3.
Be ready to stand or wait if you’re not lucky enough to grab a seat as they have limited seating space. But many were there for take aways. We got energized with their house blend of Iced Thai Style Coffee at 55 Baht. A blend that we have yet to taste so far locally.
Iced Cafe Latte also at 55 Baht
Satisfied customers from all over the world!
After a long day of stuffiness & aching feet thanks to Chatuchak, we went back to rest before heading out again for dinner.
As we had quite enough of the sun for almost the entire day, can we have dinner at a restaurant with air conditioner? I pleaded Chris. Haha Thus, we hopped over to Central World for dinner.
This is Central World.
Explored the mall & found many interesting dining spots at the top floors.
Since our craving for a proper Thai meal got exceptionally stronger in Bangkok, we settled down for Thai of course, at Nara Thai Cuisine. Nara’s food were pretty awesome. All we could say was “Authentic Thai in a comfortable & chic setting”. Thailand’s best restaurant, it says
Sakoo – 115 Baht
Tapioca balls with minced pork filling
Tord Man Pla – 210 Baht
Thai Fish Cakes
Koo Moo Tord Hgar – 130 Baht
Deep fried pork neck with sesame seeds
Tom Ga Kai – 220 Baht
Chicken in Coconut Soup
Kang Kiew Wan – 220 Baht
Green Curry Chicken
Prawn Omelet – 180 Baht
Ka nar Pla Khem – 180 Baht
Stir fry kale with Thai anchovies
Nara Thai Cuisine
More shopping @ Naraya, Central World before we head to Big C Supermarket & Thai Massage to end the night! WooHoo!
Just when you needed some girl time for a casual catch-up & tittle-tattles, I would always thought of afternoon tea at a quiet & cosy spot. Well, as the husband cum photographer doesn’t really fancy hi-tea, here I am, taking pictures myself this round at a house secluded in the absolute epicenter of Kuala Lumpur.
An elite looking space that catered us calm & comfort towards the whole afternoon. We were here for our “Tai-Tai Afternoon Tea” mission at the French House.
Yes. French House or better known as:
It speaks well for itself as it is really nestled in a house. A mansion that guaranteed an in awe moment as the waiter pulls open its doors to greet you. Laid with a spacious dining area, Maison Francaise also allow their patrons to experience al fresco dining too if they love outdoors. Simple decorations with wall paintings, chandeliers, fresh flowers. but resulted a 5-star dining ambiance generally. Manual placement of the cutleries & napkins were also done perfectly.
As we were there for an afternoon tea session on a Friday afternoon, there were no one else except us. It felt as if we’ve booked the entire restaurant/ house! An enhanced “tai-tai” feel. Haha…
Here’s what we had for our afternoon tea:
NOTE: Teas are not included in their afternoon tea menu (we ordered separately)
Darjeeling – RM14
This Darjeeling tea comes from the foothill of Himalaya. It has got a taste of the ripe fruits and an amber colour
Earl Grey Tea – RM14
A traditional oriental blend of smoked tea
Maison Francaise – Tea Time Menu
RM38++ Per Person (Min 2 persons)
Smoked salmon sandwich with green salad
A tasty home-made treat made with smoked salmon in a crispy toast enriched with the flavors of caper
Apricot/ Figs delight
Roasted apricot / figs from Provence in butter sauce with vanilla ice cream
Cannele de Bordeaux
A cake with a rich custardy interior enclosed by a thin caramelized shell, flavored with dark rum
A shell of pastry dough stuffed with a wonderful combination of almond paste and juicy strawberries
Mini passion fruit entremet
A multi-layered mousse-based cake featuring a variety of textures with a delighful passion fruit flavor.
Crêpe with caramel sauce
A a very thin French pancake topped with sweet caramel sauce
Doughnut with your choice of flavor
A Doughnut made from sweet yeast dough fried in oil, with a chocolate or chestnut filling
Butter, Jam and Honey
A small portion of fresh French gourmet butter and a selection of the finest jam and honey
A highly enriched French bread
with a rich and tender crumb
Served on a single tier, each pretty piece was arranged like an art.
**Our servings differs from the above items a little bit e.g. Apricot/ Figs delight & Crêpe with caramel sauce were replaced with White Chocolate Mousse
A team of chefs busy preparing & arranging our tea set! And he didn’t forget to smile to my camera
Complimentary french bread
And take some to open up your appetite again
Since there were still room for more treats from Maison Francaise, we decided to go for one of their mains:
Le magret de canard glacé au miel et épices
Seared glazed duck breast with honey and spices – RM 62
The duck meat was perfectly seared & we love how’s the sauce done with intense mushroom flavour plus hint of sweetness from the honey and also the spices that tops the aroma. Apart from that, it was pretty creative of them to present their minced button mushrooms in a potato mould & cover!
Another must try dessert here would be the famous Soufflé. Since I’ve not tried Sage’s Signature Soufflé, I do hope Maison Francaise’s version would surprise me first. Well, it succeeded
Soufflé à votre convenance: Citron, Chocolat, Grand Marnier, Mangue, Vanille
Soufflé of your choice: Lemon, Chocolate, Grand Marnier, Passion fruit and Vanilla Crêpe with caramel sauce – RM 40
We chose Grand Marnier (an an orange-flavored brandy liqueur). Once served, the buttery aroma filled our table. This lightly baked cake is puffed up prettily with a soft, fluffy & airy texture. The base is flavoured with Grand Marnier while the beaten egg whites created the great “lift”. A ‘no regrets’ order

Ever since there was a rave on Swich Cafe @ HP Towers, Damansara Heights, we have been dying to try on one of the most popular slice of fruits beauties available at Swich.
One of the most talked about cakes lately?
As we couldn’t make time during weekdays for a dine-in session over at the HP Towers (only open on weekdays), I shrieked a little learning that Swich has handed in Publika. An easier option for weekend visits! A small & simple kiosk set up with minimalism between Baby Loft and Wings at level G3 in Publika Mall, it’s a casual hang out spot for brunch & afternoon tea for us.
And as for their mains:
Soft Shell Crab with Salted Egg Pizza – RM11.90 (quarter)
Bursting with great flavours of the salted eggs, it was really appetizing as the rich flavours plus the crispy dough ignited out palate pretty much. A great fusion!
Walnut Pine Nut Pesto Pasta – RM17.90
I am personally a big fan of pesto pasta but this preparation was kinda too bland to our liking.
Chicken Rendang Burger – RM17.90
The rendang chicken cubes were kinda dry
Behold! Here’s 2 of their most photographed cakes & best sellers!
We were pretty amazed with their delicious innovation of incorporating our Malaysian fruits into their bakes!
Made with mangosteens and a touch of pomegranate, it’s frosted with mangosteen cream and topped with fresh mangosteens. Lightly flavoured with mangosteen, we love it just the way it is. Must try!
Swich’s Cempedak Tutti Fruitti
This little slice of heaven was even the centre of attraction towards the end of the meal! The sponge layer with little chunks of cempedak in it created a distinct aroma & taste of the fresh cempedak that we all fell in love with. Not to mention the cempedak cream frosting that made us went “oohh” in every bite! Topped with fresh mango chunks & roasted coconut, this combo convinced us for a second visit
Verdict: We personally would only return for their memorable dessert. Loving their Mangosteen & Cempedak cake lots! Though Swich Cafe incorporated a briliant idea of the east & west fusion for their mains, but the lack of chemistry between both would sometimes do the “not-so-good”.

Recently Chris told me he discovered a hidden gem. Hidden where?
Good reviews backed up our plan for a dinner session even more. Having heard that their dishes are highly rated 9 out of 10 from bloggers, a reason for a palate discovery.
Semenyih…This area might seemed foreign to most of you, & some might hold back for a while when it requires the slight drive you will have to make.
But it was rather convenient for us Another plus point for us to get there.
Restoran 52 is easily noticed once you turn in from the main road (google map as below).
Get what we meant? Haha.
As their dinner serving time starts at 6pm, try to be there earlier as their service can be quite slow. You may reserve a table but not the dishes.
Be prepared to wait if you notice there are crowds pouring in like us. Many tables have not been served yet
Like any other casual Chinese “tai chow”, Restoran 52 have some specialties to ignite your palate, which we thought they were memorable & worth a revisit. Here’s some of their must-orders!
Dark Beer Ribs 黑啤排骨 – RM12
Really dark in colour, a rather different version of the Guinness ribs that we used to have as it matches the black beauty coating of the sticky dark stout. Very flavoursome & tender ribs that all of us enjoyed.
Light deep fried tilapia 油滑非洲 – RM32
Doesn’t look like it has been deep fried? It may looked like any other steam fish, but this creative method of cooking churned out this great dish.
Being bathed in hot boiling oil, this creates the additional aroma while preserving the freshness of the fish. The skin remains as if it’s steamed. The meat was smooth and not overcooked. Served with cili padi, shredded ginger, garlic & soy sauce.
Salted Egg Squids 咸蛋蘇东 – RM12
I love this to bits! Every bite is brimmed with mega flavours of the salted eggs with hints of spiciness from the dried chillies. Artery clogging? We didn’t quite pay attention to this matter for the moment.
Salt baked Chicken Wings 盐焗鸡翅 – RM9
It definitely doesn’t look baked to us. Looks more light deep fried But the hints of salt & pepper plus the dash of spring onion & cili padi definitely boosted up the flavours. Do try!
Hot Plate Hor Fun 铁板河粉 – RM12
Another interesting dish, the flat rice noodles (hor fun) are served on a sizzling hot plate. Smooth texture with taste almost resembling the “wat tan hor” but the sizzles added some distinct taste I guess
Stir fry sweet potato leaves 清炒树苗 – RM10
**Other popular dishes includes: Curry Fish Head, Loh Shu Fun, Abacus seed 算盘子, Claypot ribs with yam, Butter Squid, Fresh water prawns egg noodles.

What’s better than any desserts made with love?
We sometimes agree that we would get tired of the very commercialized bakes & desserts that we can get while we’re shopping.
Most people love homebaked items as it feels…More Homely
Who’s the new baker in town?
Also known as Lee Ping, this enthusiastic lady is a mother of 2 cuties, a web designer and most importantly, she loves baking very much. This hobby soon evolved into a business for her now & good news that she’s taking orders online! Homemade bakery items in just a click away!
She caters for cupcakes, Custom designed cakes, Macaron & also a dessert spread for parties!
Here’s just some of her desserts shares:
Classic Vanilla Cake (Swiss Meringue Buttercream)
An original recipe which is simple & carries the classic favourite flavour of vanilla. Topped with swiss meringue buttercream, it’s not oily & it’s a great combo with the cake.
Devil’s Chocolate Cake (Chocolate Frosting)
Moist and soft chocolate cake topped with the rich chocolate cream. Every sinful bite is bursting with richness.
Lemon Cake (Lemon Buttercream)
An appetizing & refreshing dessert all would love, it tasted light & lemony. Married with its vanila sponge, the lemon buttercream is also drizzled with lemon zest.
Oreo Chocolate Cake (Oreo Swiss Meringue Buttercream)
Everyone’s favourite oreo! With a chocolate cake base, it’s topped with an abundant amount of oreo chunks buttercream & adorned with half an oreo cookie for the extra bite!
Rainbow Cake (Cream Cheese Frosting)
It may look just like any other cuppies that is topped with cream cheese, but this dense cake is actually made up of layers. Layers of colourful sweetness that is made up of natural dyes from vegetables, pandan leaves & eggs yolks. No artificial colouring added for sure.
Strawberry Vanilla Cake (Strawberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream)
Vanilla sponge with the homemade strawberry jam as the filling, topped with a marbled swiss meringue buttercream & a chocolate dipped strawberry.
Snow White Coconut Cake (or should we say… Rainbow Cake?)
Using fresh coconut buttercream as frosting, this beauty fits its name as it’s dressed with fresh shredded coconut all over.
Looking just all white? Look what’s hidden within!
Colourful layers inside. Once again, Sunnie stresses on “No articifial colourings” were used for this cake.
What’s the colours made of?
The base is the normal butter cake
Violet from Purple sweet potatoes
Blue from the Butterfly Pea Flower a.k.a blue pea flower
Green from Pandan juice
Orange from Pumpkin
Different flavours with different texture of healthiness!
Some custom designed cupcakes for guests, for Baby’s Full Moon?
Or get your kids some cute cakes like these?

One night the big bad wolf, who dearly loved to eat fat little piggies, came along and said “Let me in, Let me in, little pig or I’ll huff and I’ll puff and I’ll blow your house in!”
“Not by the hair of my chinny chin chin”, said the little pig.
Oh, don’t we just love the old tale of Three Little Pigs & the Big Bad Wolf?
This catchy restaurant name caught our attention pretty much as it brings back a sudden reminiscence of the childhood cartoon that we used to watch
And here we are!
Eating the pigs like a wolf! *gasp*
A modern & sophisticated cafe at Bangsar, this is another contender that upped the porky treats at the happening KLite spot. Love the combo of pink & grey, the outer part of the restaurant reflects a more modern & cosy outdoor dining while the inner ambiance pictured an American diner style incorporating another artsy corner for coffee & chats.
Latte to start!
Let’s chow down like a wolf!
Grilled Pork Salad – RM22
Crunchy siew yoke tossed with fresh garden greens, avocado & dressed with tantalizing balsamic vinaigrette. Healthy balance of meats & greens! However, we still prefer Ante’s Crispy Pork Trotter Salad & also S.Wine’s version of Warm Pork Belly Confit, Watermelon and Lychee Salad. Yum.
Eggs Benedict – RM18
Though it was a late lunch, we didn’t really forego the thought of having a breakfast/brunch item. Love the presentation of the poached eggs blanketing the crispy pork bacon on the bed of toasted bread. Drizzled with Hollandaise sauce, it was pretty memorable.
The Wolf’s favourite – RM27
Al dente spaghetti tossed in creamy sauce, served with smoked pork bacon and button mushrooms and of course, mounted with a poached egg and crispy bacon bits. Indeed the wolf’s favourite! As it was ours too Bursting with flavours, it’s best shared as it’s very satiating.
Mighty Piggy Burger – RM24
The pork patty was juicy, burger-ed together with cheese, tomatoes, greens, fried egg and drizzles of mayonaise in between a soft bun.

An annual ritual for us to celebrate our BFF’s one-year-wiser day has come again & another reason for us to check out a new spot!
However, this year would be rather different in a way that we are “partially repeating” the birthday venue. Our great memories still wonder around vividly at the ‘fashionably elegant’ cafe which means haute, 2 years ago.
2 years ago (time flies!), we celebrated Citygal’s birthday at The Haute Food Co @ Plaza Damas, and this year, we decided to check out Tray Cafe at the exact same spot!
To those who might get confused, Tray Cafe took over The Haute Food Co end of last year as the previous decided to focus more on catering services.
READ our review on The Haute Food Co HERE!
Like The Haute Food & Co., they vow to freshly prepare food in an old fashion way. Maintaining the same ambiance, it’s basically an innovative change in their menu providing the same comfort food that we all looked for. However if you would want us to compare Tray Cafe with Haute, we would prefer the previous setting in terms of taste & freshness.

Verdict: We did not get to try their sandwiches as only breakfast menu was available during our time of visit as we really miss the sandwiches from Haute And as for their breakfast menu, it was decent but didn’t manage to wow us much. Coffees were not up to our expectation as well but I personally love their Hot Chocolate. Will only return for their desserts

The ramen rave has been ongoing for quite sometime and has been such a hit around town. Santouka, Yamagoya, Menya Musashi… the long list goes on. However recently, there’s a new contender that arrives with a loud thump anchoring Pavilion. We’re pretty sure most of you would be aware about this high profile Japanese ramen specialist, in which we too join in the crowd to queue for the lip-smacking bowl of Hakata’s creation!
Founded in year 1985 (gosh I share the same age with Ippudo!)
Having heard so much of Ippudo’s must-have soup base, we have been vowing to check it out at Singapore but failed to do so. It was a relieve when we get to know that they will be opening in KL as it would be much more reachable now
They have over 65 stores in Japan, and globally in cities such as New York, Sydney, Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan, South Korea and Shanghai.
**We would love to praise their service as the staffs were very attentive, efficient, friendly & hyperactive!
For some small bites to share, we had the Pork Bun – RM6.90
Claimed to be an all-time favorite, this steamed bun with braised pork and Ippudo’s homemade sauce doesn’t really look as appetizing as it looks from the menu. Though it doesn’t look very succulent and as vibrant, we were wronged by it looks. The meat texture were juicy by surprise
Essential condiments for your ramen!
And as for their Ramen series, Ippudo offers 3 types of soup base, with 4 different orders from just plain noodles and broth with chashu to additional toppings of eggs, pork belly & a combination of all.
Shiromaru Motoaji – RM26
Original recipe Tonkotsu broth served with Hakata-style ultra-thin noodles and topped with belly chashu, bean sprouts, kikurage and spring onions, cooked expertly to produce a smooth yet classic Hakata ramen.
We personally love this best as the broth made me tasted its originality. Clear yet flavoursome, we could finish the whole bowl of soup!
Shiromaru Tamago – RM28 (with flavoured egg)
Shiromaru Chashu – RM31 (with simmered pork belly)
Shiromaru Special – RM34 (with flavoured egg, pork belly & seaweed)
Akamaru Shinaji – RM28
The 25-year old recipe requires slow cooking over long hours to achieve a perfect emulsion of oil and liquid, creating a rich and flavorful Tonkotsu that enhances the essence of pork-bone topped with Ippudo secret miso, garlic oil, belly chashu, kikurage, bean sprouts and spring onions. This version of broth carries a more pungent taste that stimulated our tastebuds even more.
Akamaru Tamago – RM30 (with flavoured egg)
Akamaru Chashu – RM33 (with simmered pork belly)
Akamaru Special – RM36 (with flavoured egg, pork belly & seaweed)
Spicy Karaka-men – RM28
The Karaka Men features Ippudo signature Tonkotsu broth and Hakata-style wavy noodles, topped with ground pork and our spicy Karaka miso for the spice that you crave!
Karaka Tamago – RM30 (with flavoured egg)
Karaka Chashu – RM33 (with simmered pork belly)
Karaka Special – RM36 (with flavoured egg, pork belly & seaweed)
We have heard quite a few of “Yays” & “Nays” of Ippudo.

We would love to apologize for not finishing up our C ♥ C Mini Moon Getaway to Pangkor Laut as we’re kinda carried away with some back logs and the CNY festivity in the middle of it. Oh yeah, looking at the pictures made me miss my long hair suddenly
Warning: Picture loaded post! So, your enjoyment would gain Chris some satisfaction in exchange haha!
Continuing from our previous of C ♥ C Mini Moon: Pangkor Laut Resort Day 1 HERE…… ♥
We woke up greeted by gentle cool breeze as we opened the sliding door. We spent day 1 lazily with some good reads, lying & eating around like a king & queen, it just felt so so so… good! Throwing away our alarm clock, be it biological or not, we woke up so naturally (which has been a while since our last natural wake up call). Thus, we missed the taichi/ yoga class (complimentary classes provided by the resort near the library) Hehe…
Morning & Evening @ Pangkor Laut through our balcony
Prepare to go for breakfast! Gosh I miss the hairdo!
If you decided not to take the lift and do some workout, let’s climb stairs!
“One should not attend even the end of the world without a good breakfast.”
― Robert A. Heinlein, Friday
#1 Let’s Feast @ Feast Village then! (BREAKFAST)
Culinary offerings from the Asia-Pacific region and beyond that features a patisserie, cafe, Chef’s table and wine cellar where guests can purchase wines of their choice. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner. However, we opted for a different dinner spot later at night
Spoilt with choices, savour yourself with different types of cuisines; from Malaysian delights, Western fix or even some Chinese cum Indian tasty surprises!
Pick any of these for your own mix of healthy juices!
Loving every bit of every corner, Chris and I however, fell in love with one very particular dish: The amazing Roti Jala with one of the best Dhall that we had!
Also a little note: Just in case if you’re seated at the outdoors near the beach, be careful of these little Hornbill rascals that might just ruin your breakfast spread!
Just next door, would be The Straits (our dinner spot later!)
What’s next after breakfast?
#2 Laze @ Emerald Bay
Let’s get the lazy bug in and get playful + lazy at the same time!
While you read & get tanned at the beach, you will be served with complimentary water & fruits for refreshments
Well, we spent most of the day here at this beach, swimming at the sea, catching baby crabs & taking our afternoon nap, even after lunch at the Chapman’s Bar!
#3 Chapman’s Bar (LUNCH TIME!)
Right at Emerald Bay, is where Chapman’s Bar is sitted. So do plan your lunch route here after Emerald Bay for convenience.
This bar is named after a famous British Colonel who sought refuge at Emerald Bay before his dramatic escape by submarine in 1945. They serve lunches daily, including sandwiches, traditional Malaysian bites, salads and tasty carbs & proteins of local flavours.
Marinated chicken / beef skewers served with peanut sauce, rice cakes, chunks of pineapples and onions
Sotong Kering Salada
Chopped vegetables tossed with dried squid in a spicy-sour dressing, served in a pineapple shell
Sizzling Mongolian Lamb
Marinated lamb slices with carrot & leek chunks, served on a hot plate with special sauce and an egg pancake
Wok fried yellow noodles with chicken, assorted seafood and fresh vegetables
#4 A Romantic Night @ The Straits (DINNER for 2)
The Straits is set against the rocks, by the beach, overlooking the sea, providing exotic dining in an elegant and beautiful environment that is swept by the winds. It is also adorned with natural timber and granite that created the poshy yet relaxing ambiance by the beach that also churned out a romantic push
Reminder: Do book a day earlier to secure a spot by the sea instead of being seated at the garden area with less view.
Smoked Salmon Salad with Avocados & Mangoes
Seafood Angel Hair Pasta
Fresh prawns, squids & mussels tossed with Angel hair pasta ala aglio olio style. Al dente pasta tossed perfectly with flavours from the seafood and herbs.
Char grilled Fish
Char-grilled fish with sides of broccoli & potatoes salad. Love the potato salad that created a tasty balance with the fresh protein slice! And of course a clever fusion of sprinkling some chopped chives for some oriental touch.
What’s best paired with seafood? A surprise order from the hubby Chardonnay
A sweet ending for both of us
So rich & dense!
And as for Day 3, we didn’t manage to book for Spa (such sad incident), which calls for another reason for us to drop by the island again!
Had some random photoshoot here and there with Chris before we bid goodbye to our short but unforgettable mini getaway!
And look what we spotted in the sea! Eeeek!

Chris has recently raised an issue about blogging more on Kajang food.
As we may get tired of the food around our neighbourhood, as we believe most of us do, we haven’t really been sharing a lot on the Kajang town stories.
Some might say there’s nothing much you can eat around town, but Chris just enlightened me with the phrase of “Old is Gold”
When he was a little boy, he used to eat here after school.
Where about? Most Kajang-lite will immediately know when mentioned “Behind the Pasar!”
Yes, it’s a small shack nestled behind the Kajang Wet Market. Same row with the best Hong Kong Chee Cheung Fun (CCF) that we had. Read review HERE.
It has been operating for about 20 years till now and still packed with many regulars.
A small stall selling normal noodles that you can find, but the main character here that everyone would look for would be their porky parts! From braised intestines, pig skin, and lobak, these are their stars that are bagged with the olden flavours.
Uncle busy hustling with the noodles.
Calling out pork lovers who are into a vintage hunt for a 2 decade old stall that runs their business at the alley! Here’s one of your call
Wong Kee Restaurant

Our everlasting festive CNY mood has finally settled down a bit & it’s time to get back to real business and routines.
Sorry for being so inactive for a week at blogsphere as the hibernation level rises thanks to the many good Chinese food during Chinese New Year!
Well adjourning to the topic of Valentine……
As of 2013, this would be our ONE DOZEN YEARS of celebrating Valentine’s together!
Our memories were vivid when we talk about over last year’s Valentine dinner at Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 @ Taman Desa. Bathed with sweats & smoke. Ooolala.
To beat people congestions during dinner & to avoid dining in restaurants that mostly offer Valentine Set Menu with not much choices that we really love, the hubby suggested a brunch instead.
And of course, a place that serves coffee so that he could catch his dose in great comfort.
We heard so much about Troika but have yet to set our feet there. Here we are, on Valentine’s Day We were like having a private brunch for 2 as we were their first customer of the day. Relaxing and calm Valentine!
We really love their interior. How should we elaborate? I thought it was breathtakingly stunning in a way that it reflects a stylish mood. The furnitures that matched the ambiance has a chic feature that complemented well with a modern retro touch. And the glass windows that brings in natural sunlight, the best effect for pictures! They even own a loft bar upstairs which would be great for private tittle tattles. Acme would be one of the stylish hit in KL.
Pretty casier counter that would brighten your day!
Desserts up for grabs! Burp *oops pardon me*
Coffee – an exquisite exercise in perfection
We would say the description above applied to Acme’s coffee machine
What a classic piece!
Since it was Valentine’s Day, the barista decided to create the latte art that fits the day theme. It was indeed very skillful & pretty though we thought the art was a little more mature than Butter & Beans @ Seventeen. Haha. Love them lots!
Coffee wise, it was not the best in town as we personally thought they did not bring out the aroma enough though it was velvety & smooth.
We would still prefer Coffee Societe & Coffee Stain.
Cappuccino – RM13
Flat White – RM15
Tuna Melt Sandwich – RM25
Tuna, capers, peppers, on sourdough bread with Gruyere & mozzarella toasted cheese
Very flavoursome, wholesome & cheesy! Love the salsa sides to bits!
Smoked Duck Breast Pasta – RM35
Spaghetti carbonara with smoked duck breast topped with parmesan
A rich share of carbs & proteins that satisfied our appetite to the brim! Just realized we ordered 2 very cheesy portion of mains but we didn’t care as both were equally great.
Being Time Out KL’s Best New Restaurant 2012. Great contender for food but not for coffee yet
Thank you for being such a sweet Valentine as always!
Cheers to a dozen years of Valentine & many more ahead!

It has been quite a few tears in a row when CNY meets Valentine. This year, it will be another unexceptional as they will be seeing each other again, on the 5th day of CNY!
When many Chinese would be busy ushering the year of ULAR-la, some might be well concerned with where to shower their love with the other half. Since it’s about time when the cupid wakes up, Le Meridien has something special to offer the love birds as well.

Aperitivo (mise en bouche)
Espuma di patate
salame filo manzo e parmigiano nuvola
Beef salami floss and parmesan cloud. A cheesy start before we dig into our courses.

Salad of Maine lobster, seared chermoula crusted tuna,
Rose pickling radish and herring pearl caviar on tomato sorbet
We love the lobster pretty much as you just can’t resist the freshness & the chewy bite. However, the tuna was quite a let down as we personally thought it was overcooked and too dry to our liking.
Out of these 3 antipasto, we have to agree that the sorbet was the best. A cool serving of rich tantalizing flavours from the mixture of tomato, radish & caviar with the refreshing aftertaste.
Primi piatti (entree)
Re Cappasanta, crema di spugnole, spinaci, tartufo fresco filo
King scallops, morel cream, wilted spinach, truffle crisp filo
My favourites in a combo. What could I describe more? Bouncy fat scallop married with mushrooms & creamy gravy with mega flavours! You just won’t resist this Mr.Scallop with the Hat!

Are you looking for an affordable place to dine?
Or are you craving for some authentic Italian now?

When one says about Italian cuisine, most people would thought about just the poshy side; the hefty price to buy the authenticity and environment. Where to for the best deals of ambiance marrying good Italian dishes?

A modern & chic environment that lends a posh touch to the premise. Wine racks filled with great selections, accompanied with yummylicious photos plus menu of the day displayed harmoniously on the wall.
It was Brunch time for us and we were glad we made the right choice of dining here after coffee-ing at EspressoLab.
Squid Ink Spaghetti Married with Tender Char Grilled Calamari – RM29
Black pasta flavoured with garlic, chili in a light cream sauce topped with grilled calamari. A tantalizing dish that is not too overwhelmingly flavoured & just nice. Al dente spaghetti tossed with seafood goodness!
We would very much love to try their pasta with squid ink sauce too! Hope they will put that into their menu
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad – RM19
Lettuce tossed with creamy caesar dressing, boiled egg, red croutons, shaved parmesan & topped with grilled chicken breast. One of the best Caesar salad we had by far! A must order yo!

Killing the taste buds boredom, they came up with a pizza that is filled with 2 different sides of ingredients.
Omelette on Grolled Sourdough – RM17
A prefect pan-fried omelette wrapped with Swiss brown mushrooms, asparagus & thyme that added the extra flavours to it. Having it with the crusty dough beneath created the extra texture & satiation.
