What we like about this mall is the natural sunlight which brightened the entire mall. The mall is easy to walk and the design is not that complex. Thus, it is easy to walk around. We were there during lunch time and the office crowd came in. Most of the restaurants are packed and some restaurants were giving some promotions to get more customers.
What do We Like about Kompassion? -Foods were all great and delicious. Can see the efforts behind each dish from the ingredients used -Comfortable environment and attentive staff
Dinner was about RM250 for three pax, and considering how we ate so much, plus drinks and desserts, it was very reasonable. Kompassion has certainly upped their game, yet managed to keep their prices down at more affordable levels.
Our meal for four, inclusive of drinks and desserts, came up to RM250++. Considering the setting, as well as quality of food and service, I think this is a reasonable price. There are plenty of other dishes that I’ve yet to try on the menu, so I’m looking forward to my next visit. Reservations are recommended, but you can try walking in too.
Good service despite the crowd, less waiting time as they have more space. Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM 12.30) is satisfying with big portion, like it better than Rendang.
The way that Malaysian standup comedian, Joanne Kam, lambasted the differences between Singapore style and Malaysia style nasi lemak motivated me to check out the most famous nasi lemak eatery when I was at Petaling Jaya (PJ) recently; Village Park Restaurant!
A good contrast in comparison to the sight and smell of the rendang daging and fried chicken.
As usual, noodle of choice is kuay teow. I'm afraid it was not as good as I remembered. No, actually I don't remember. Again, I suspect my tastebuds have changed.
The noodles were super loaded and the broth had a deep flavor. No regrets making this mistake.
And of course the Wanton Mee! nyum...nyum...nyum...so happy!
The other day I got very hungry and did not bring any food with me. So I made my way to Li Wei @ The Starling and got myself the 3 Combination BBQ Platter (RM27.00). There you go - roasted chicken, char siew and siew yoke. I requested for the leg part of the chicken but was given the breast. The char siew was nice and fatty but the siew yoke was too lean.
There was a good measure of wok hei and the fish slices were fresh, so were the single prawn and small piece of squid. Flavors were good and the portion size was very generous. Yes, I enjoyed this gravy koay teow more than I enjoyed yesterday's curry mee.
So yeah, I like this Li Wei very much and you can bet that I will be visiting again to try the other items on the menu and to revisit my favorites.
We believe Table & Apron’s enduring qualities will ensure its longevity in the KL dining scene. After almost ten years, the food remains impeccable, and the service is still as enthusiastic and earnest as ever.
I'm stoked to savour my favourite Ulam Rice (RM38) from Table & Apron (T&A) restaurant after a 2-year hiatus.
While their specials and a la carte menu may see exciting options during holidays, the set menu has classic favorites. You can eat like a king, delighting over the unique combinations. Each set comes with spicy ginger tea and a choice of a delicious daily soup or salad. Only available Tuesday to Friday at lunchtime, show up early and dig in! In particular, the soft bone pork stew is a favorite. Served with garlic rice, glazed carrots, and a soy sauce egg it’s a sensory delight. Just…where to begin on this delectable dish?!
I ordered my meal from the Light Bites section and the most suitable item was Chicken Karaage. It's not exactly ideal though since fried chicken is always coated with flour. The chicken was fried to perfection, the batter was light and crispy and the chicken was moist and flavorful. The crispy fried kaffir lime leaves added another dimension to the flavor and aroma.
At first mum thought of having The Really Big Breakfast that she always sees on my blog. But she changed her mind because it was late in the day and she wanted to make sure that she had stomach space for dinner. So mum copied my order and had the Grilled Chicken Salad.
I went to The Red Kettle and had the Pomegranate Smoked Salmon Salad. It was a very pretty salad, so colorful! This salad contains smoked salmon, pomegranate, quinoa, avocado, chickpeas, lava egg, pickled blueberries, almonds, chia seeds, orange, grilled broccoli, mesclun greens and ponzu dressing. I also noted ulam raja leaves. The ponzu dressing - very sorry, I did not like it. It was so so sweet. So I used very little of it. And the smoked salmon was very very salty, even when eaten with the other ingredients. So no more of this salad for me, I will stick to the Grilled Chicken Salad.
Common Man Coffee Roasters (CMCR), the specialty coffee roaster, academy and cafe which originates from Singapore, launched its all-new menu that features a fresh selection of artfully crafted comfort fare, elevated and redefined….
Chai Latte is one of their specialty recipe from their kitchen.
Flat White was good, less milk and more coffee taste. Flat White @ RM 12
I might come back from time to time because the coffee here is amazing.
Starting our meal with one of the dish in All Day Breakfast : Pulled Duck Benedict @ RM 29. Slow – cooked Braised Duck Toasted Broiche Organic Poached Egg, Chipotle Hollandaise, Crispy Duck Bits.
Up next was the winner out of all the dishes we had. The Mexican Grilled Chicken (RM31) served with Chef Davis's Mexican Verde Sauce, Corn Mash, Grilled Capsicum and Tempura Cauliflower.
Pretty good, no complaints about the food. This place is fairly crowded, so can't stay long and have some minimum orders.
My favorite is definitely their Signature Iron Lady Milk Tea Kakigori. The earthy flavor of tie guan yin tea pairs surprisingly well with milk and the chewy tapioca pearls, yam mochi and sweet potato mochi are just the right amount of 'QQ'. The chewy trio are all flavorful individually and the brown sugar syrup is surprisingly not too sweet.
Ambiance: 6/10 Price: 6/10 Food: 6.5/10 (pork-free) Verdict: Definitely a spot to consider if you’re into shaved ice desserts. Try the Iron Lady Milk Tea and Classic Grass Jelly.
The Pork Shoulder Chop on its own was actually good because it was tender and moist. But the brown sauce was way too salty. So I scrapped most of it off and ate only the meat. There was also a bit of porky smell which was unfortunate.
One of my most satisfying meal in a while, and reservation is recommended. I like the Spanish ribs, it is the salty version and not those sweet bbq sauce. The sausages is superb as well.
Iberico Pork Sausage (RM12.90), Farmer's Bratwurst- English Parsley Sausage (RM10.50) and Garlic Sausage (RM10.50) Comment: 3 of these sausages taste really good on its own, very tasty, juicy, thick and firm, definitely premium quality!
At the end of the day, it is just comfort food for the craving of Hokkien Mee in PJ. We don’t believe they offer the best hokkien mee but when you crave for Hokkien Mee, Restoran Damansara Uptown Hokkien Mee is one of the few places to visit.
The Hokkien Mee is delicious. This tick noodle is cooked with pork lard and thick soya sauce, added with shrimps, crispy pork skin, and cabbage. It is very rich in flavor, melty sweet savoury in the mouth with a tiny bit crunchy texture from crispy pork skin, cabbage, and shrimp. It is very yummy, especially when I added their garlicy chilly sauce. YUMMM…
The perfect night always consists of amazing companies and delicious meals... Join me with my beautiful friends in eating authentic Kuala Lumpur’s local food...
A Pie Thing is your answer to savoury and sweet pies in Petaling Jaya. This OG pie shop serves beef, chicken, lamb, and veggie pies, and the best Lemon Curd pie in town.
Taste:8/10(Good. I satisfied with the taste of the chicken mushroom pie here however I think they can still improve on the taste of the crust).
The Mashacre version consists of mashed Potatoes, Sweet Peas and laden with smooth, luscious gravy. The choice of our Pie was Chicken Masala... carefully cooked and seasoned Chicken Masala filling encased in a flaky, buttery pastry skin. We were worried if the combination would turn out to be overly salty but to our surprise, it was well-seasoned on the dot. We thought it was very filling but had to leave some space for their sweet varieties
The servings are quire huge although the slightly pricy as all ingredients used is quite fresh. Conclusion, what a sinful dinning experience but wonderful dishes and friendly waiters. Rating: 9 /10
Stew Lamb with carrots at MYR 28.90+ (10% service charge = MYR 31.80 nett). The lamb shank is cut into 5 pieces and there is a lot of mashed potato so I kept 3 pieces of the lamb meat and half the mashed potato for lunch the next day. This price is lower than the price of the lamb shank here so it is value for money. Warm water is provided foc so all 4 of us did not order any drink.
Mixed Sausage Platter where you get to choose 4 sausage of your choice accompanied by potato salad or mashed potatoes and sauerkraut grilled sausages are served with onion sauce. This is a must order because sausages is the highlight! You will get to try different kind of sausages and yes, every single of them tasted very different. You may want to ask the waiter/waitress if you wish to know the name of all the sausages before you eat, which we did not do. So at the end we only know the thin and long one is nice, but we don’t know what sausage is that.
Eventually, we opted to try one of the dessert on display, specifically Lucky Koi. The combination of ingredients in this specific dessert (oolong rice ice cream + peach sorbet + goji berry muesli crunch + lychee glaze) was appealing and yummy. There was a burst of flavors and textures – the tanginess from the berries, the crunch from the muesli and the unique sweetness from the creamy ice cream. We enjoyed it.
Overall, it's a really cool dessert place.
Top-notch, one of the best ice cream I had in 2019. "Delicieux" in French!
Serve the best toast with ice-cream.
8.5/10. Personally, a little bit steep in price, but I absolutely love it! The taste of the desserts always keeps me coming back for more. To be honest, I’m always shocked by how good that Matcha lava cake is, and the toast NEVER disappoints!
Miru's Strawberry Cheesecake Kakigori was impressive... the ice was silky smooth and fine while the Strawberry 'syrup' was carefully sweetened. It did not feel very 'artificial' and we trust real Strawberries have been used in the making of the 'syrup'. Just as you dig further and getting monotonous on the 'syrup' and 'shave ice' combo, there will be cubed Cheese Cake to further entice you. Though not exactly the best Cheese Cake, it provides a good bite and a fine touch to the icy treat.
The Nasi Lemak Pork Rendang attracts me when I looked at the menu. I am loving how the fragrant nasi lemak is done with the fragrant blend of coconut rice together with the generous portion of pork rendang together with the cucumbers, anchovies, kangkung and half an egg.
No question that definitely like this hidden bar, with so much booze to choose from and if other food items in the menu are as good as tonight's mutton varuval, then good food as well.
Of course there are some that I really enjoyed- all Tea Garden, LC 1 (RM 32) and Kopi Ice (RM 35) were all super easy to drink. I’ve always dislike eggwhite in cocktail but I do not dislike this, probably because of the floral hints from lavender. Despite looking ordinary, I am putting LC1 and Kopi ice as a strong contender for one of the tastiest cocktail for the night.
My kimchi jigae came with rice and 6 banchan. The tea was very diluted. The kimchi jigae was pretty good but all you get is just lots of kimchi.
It’s the new year! 2020 is finally upon us, have you made your new resolution yet? Eat more? Enjoy life more? Let me introduce you a yummy Korean BBQ Restaurant then, BBQ Ma Eul Cup Bab over at Damansara Uptown which we dined at recently. Read on to see what we had that evening.
