Especially when you have a nice slice of carrot cake to go with it. While there's no coffee art, the drink speaks for itself. I want to say it's full bodied, not bitter but you'd see right through my pretentious self 😂 Lets just say that the coffee and cake is like a marriage made in heaven. One offsets the other's flaw.
Apparently Red Kettle is famous for their pork chop, but I guess none of us was in the mood for so much of pork lmao so we opted for other items on their menu. The bestie obviously couldn't give up on pork so she settled for Cajun Prawn Pork Burger - chargrilled cajun prawns & handmade pork patty, homemade pork bacon, cheddar cheese, honey mustard, tomato salsa, salad & fries. So sinful but so good! Do note that this dish is slightly spicy though.
Pan Fried Seabass at MYR 28.90+ (MYR 31.79 nett). My friend ordered Sambal Tumis Seabass with Rice at the same price. For both dishes, the seabass steaks are prepared in the same way - pan fried. We saw these seabass dishes in the menu and decided to have lunch at this eatery. The mashed potatoes is creamy and the roasted vegetables - broccoli, cauliflower, baby tomatoes, sugar snap peas and brinjals are tasty. The skin of the seabass is pan fried till very crispy.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand launched a new campaign which are "EAT THAI, VISIT THAILAND 2019". So, they are doing the collaboration with Mr Tuk Tuk, Thai restaurant in Starling Mall at Petaling Jaya, This campaign started from March 20 till April 30, 2019. Mr Tuk Tuk have 8 outlets that you can pay a visit to Mr Tuk Tuk restaurant, which are nearer your home or office area. Even, they also introduced some new dishes and drinks in Mr Tuk Tuk restaurant
Due out of curiosity, we also did order a set of Tuk Tuk Laksa RM10.80 – serving with a bowl of laksa broth, spice leaves, bean sprouts, salted vegetables, and rice vermicelli. The result was surprising “Aroi Mak Mak Mak” (very very very delicious), once you dipped the rice vermicelli into the laksa broth and start chowing, next thing you can savor is the rich mellow goodness of coconut milk that directly overcomes with a fine scent of dried shrimps, lemongrass and various spices. We regard it as a delectable “Thai” laksa at its best, definitely worth our personal two thumbs up! 😉
Crispy Fish Fillet with Mango Salad - MYR 13.80 nett. I like the mango salad but find the coating for the fish fillet to be a bit thick.
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.
Dine-in 13 at 11.12 am on Friday 11 Sep 2020 d178. My portion of special beef Noodles from Pho Real, Starling Mall recommended by PH. The broth was light yet flavourful so I drank all of it. There were many slices of beef and briskets too. Definitely well worth the price of MYR 22.90 nett. No MSG because I wasn't thirsty after drinking all the broth.
Judy's Hakka Lei Char at Foodies' Nest, The Starling Mall's food court with brown rice at MYR 12.50 nett. It is thick, minty and not salty at all because it is supposed to be mixed with the vegetables (chai poh - perserved vege is salty), peanuts and rice.
Verdict: Overall the ramen is nice with an intense broth They are mostly famous for their Cheese tsukemen Service was lacking and their app isn't very helpful in terms of ordering the food.
Verdict: We were largely contented with our meal at Mitsuyado Seimen. A well worth checking out for noodles devotees.
The basic Tsukemen, which is known as hiyamori is one variety where the Ramen is served slightly chilled and compliments with warm soup. Mitsuyado continuously invents new recipe, to cater for the vast customers’ combination preferences, using different temperature in boiling and rinsing of the noodles. Therefore, Mitsuyado has become the pioneer in the arena of Tsukemen to offer noodles in 4 different temperatures!
S and V both had the Nasi Lemak Roast Pork. It came served with a crispy fried cracker atop a bed of fragrant coconut rice, a side of roast pork, fried egg with luncheon meat, peanuts, anchovies and sambal. The portion is right for ladies, but V had to get another bowl of rice. Tried a piece of the pork – it had nice crackly skin and a good balance of lean and fat.
We enjoyed the Vin de Pork (RM36) – grilled pork shoulder served with red wine sauce, mash potato and salad. The grilled pork was well-seasoned and tender.
Set lunch: pasta, black coffee and one scoop of ice cream at MYR 19+ (10% service charge = MYR 21.90 nett). Close up: Carbonara pasta with salmon and scallops. The sauce is creamy and on the sweet side. I kept half of the pasta for my friend because I don't want to eat so much creamy sauce in one day.
Tried out the Famous Clam Dishes from Two Sons Bistro in The Starling Mall! Definitely worth every penny! Give it a try and hope you guys like it! :)Address:...
Verdict: The food we had were just run-of-the-mill and nothing really excited us. Service was a bit slow although the restaurant was quite vacant on that day. Revisit? I’m afraid, not.
Overall, yes its good.
Verdict: Prices are slightly on higher side but considering the comfy dining environment and sufficiently good food (though a bit of hiccup on the service), revisit is on the cards.
Fried Noodle was superb. It has a good smoky flavour that we enjoyed it. Noodle @ RM 28
Prawn and Foie Gras Toast (RM28) This was potentially the winner of the day! Innovative fusion dish that proves the chefs could do more than just traditional chinese cuisine. Delicious on its own, the creamy foie gras made a wonderful pair with the crunchy toast underneath.
Well, for the price that we are paying, definately no complain at all, however I still prefer Sukiya over this. As sukiya soup base is much flavourful. For this outlet it seems pretty mild in most of the soup base. However, depends on your own preference as this is constantly packed.
Click on it to read the text. There are 5 soup base available and 4 types of meat: pork, chicken, beef and lamb. You need to pay extra if you order from the ala carte section. For weekday lunch the price is MYR 32.80++ (10% service charge and 6% GST making it MYR 38.25 nett) and it is limited to a 2 hours session. For weekends, the price is MYR 34.80++ for lunch.
Overall, we were satisfied with the quality of the ingredients, as the prawns and meat slices were fresh and highly enjoyable. And as expected, the pork slices were the most delicious and went well with the spicy miso dipping sauce. That said, Sukishi’s sushi was terrible so don’t have high expectations for it. Personally, I thought they were worse than what you get at supermarkets.
"All you can eat" salad bar, bottomless soup and dessert with one's chosen fixed main meal at MYR 19 nett - good value for money - so we decided to eat at this eatery.
Nicsmann 1940s By Lewre introduces a delectable selection of treats both sweet and savoury with English premium tea for 2 pax, with RM85 only! The Hi-Tea On The Park is available from 2pm to 5pm daily.
My one favorite of bites is Potato Skin Stuffed with Crumble Chicken. Once I bite this, I love this taste because of the perfect combination and sauce. So delicious! Besides that, my good friend and I taste the mushroom soup which is totally special as it has several ingredients to mix together especially egg yolk added into its mushroom
The rice was dry and hard. I could detect fragrant herbs including bunga kantan in the raw vegetables and the kerisik was fresh and crispy. Just mix everything up and add some of the sambal tumis (which was spicy hot).
My obvious pick here would be the Nasi Lemak with Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM12.90), with add-ons of Eggplant with Sambal (RM2.90) and Sayur Campur (RM2.90) below. The basmati rice was fragrant, not too overly rich, something which I liked, though my friend said that it could do with a hint more santan to boost. The sambal was sweet yet not too spicy, I can have this with almost everything. The fried chicken - was the bomb. It was spiced and marinated well, juicy, and had a fantastic crunch to it. I will never say no to fried chicken.
Dry curry chicken drumstick yellow noodle mix hor fun at MYR 10.90 nett. Finished everything except the yellow noodles because they are hard, almost raw and I don't think they are worth bringing home so I just left them.
Grilled salmon belly skewers at MYR 15+ (MYR 15.90 nett). The salmon belly has crispy skins but very fatty belly so no more next time.
Beef Tataki - MYR 17 nett. I found this explanation from the internet: "Beef tataki refers to a Japanese method of preparing fillet beef, where the meat is lightly seared, marinated, sliced thinly similar to sashimi, and served with a citrus-soy dipping sauce". From wiki, tataki (たたき) means "pounded" or "hit into pieces". The beef fillet in this dish is sliced very thinly and very lightly seared so it may appear to be medium rare so if one wants to eat beef that is cooked thoroughly to well done then stay clear of this dish. I find this dish very flavourful due to it being served in the citrus soy sauce.
Lunch at Rakuzen, Starling Mall. Salmon Avocado at MYR 18 nett. Closed up look at the mentaiko (fish roe). There are cubes of avocado and raw salmon beneath the mentaiko.
Yasai Omu Curry Rice at MYR 19.80 nett (inclusive of 6% SST). Yasai (野菜) means vegetable so there are potatoes, pumpkin, okra and carrots in this meal. Omurice refers to rice wrapped in an omelette. My friend says this dish is tasty and I guess the Curry is on the sweet side since my friend does not take spicy food.
I went for the cold green tea soba tempura at MYR 11.13+ (6% SST = MYR 11.80 nett). The green tea taste is strong and nice. The way to eat this is to mix the spring onions, daikon, seaweed into the cup of mirin soy sauce and then dip the cold soba into the sauce before eating it.
On that day, we went to Sushi Zanmai, Starling mall for lunch. I ordered a small bowl of Tempura soba for MYR 13.96 nett. There were only two pieces of tempura - a prawn and a piece of brinjal. Other than this, I also ordered my usual avocado sushi (MYR 2.64 nett - two pieces).
I ordered the pumpkin rice as before and I will keep ordering this dish whenever I eat here because of the way they cook pumpkin until it tastes so delicious. I kept half the rice and pumpkin for dinner and ate all the salad.
The Vegetarian Nasi Lemak is one of the items in the Lunch menu, the meal comes with a small Ginger Tea.
I mentioned here that I may not eat this again but on another visit to the same BMS branch at The Starling Mall, the rice is soft again so I guess I will continue to order this dish at MYR 12.90 nett with 5 cubes of pumpkin.
Bought 6 egg tarts and kept 3 for other days because there is a bulk discount for buying 6. The cold Vintage Nan Yang Coffee C drink is very tasty!
I ordered chicken hor fun (MYR 11.20+ 6% sst = MYR 11.90 nett). The two prawns did not have the taste of fresh prawns so I did not like them but the soup and hor fun noodles are fine.
Verdict: For an established eatery like Nam Heong, I definitely expect more that this. Food we tried was below my expectation and it would be hard to be convinced for a revisit anytime soon.
Oh yes, the food is still very good at Hotpot1 @ The Starling. I revisited not too long ago and I had to have one of my favorites, the Chaipu Chicken. Because I was very hungry, I added a side dish of yam cake. I thought the yam cake was superb! And so was the Chaipu Chicken.
The fried rice came in a huge portion. Even by my standards. There was some measure of wok hei, but not as intense as I would have liked. There were loads of ingredients inside - chicken fillet, fish cake, egg, carrots and crabstick. It was good and this portion can be comfortably shared by two.
For my main meal I opted for the Mixed Vegetable Curry and I put in an order for the Fresh Fried Seafish. I was charged RM10.00 for the fish and total paid for my lunch was RM23.00. The fish was fresh and fried till crispy. I loved the chili dip that came with it - it was a blend of chilies, onions and lime juice (with some sugar). I could also detect a hint of bunga kantan. It was so refreshing and appetizing.
The restaurant is decorated with nature theme drawings on its walls with cosy seating areas.
Ever get fed up with the chic coffee and dessert cafes that seem to focus more on their "hipster" decor, only to then be let down by their lacklustre food with bite-sized portions? The Embassy Café, which is located in the new shopping mall, The Starling Mall in the vicinity of bustling Damansara Uptown neighbourhood, prides itself in serving hearty portions, all-day dining and freshly brewed coffees/teas.
With culinary ethnicity and epicurean gear to create a comforting selection of dishes and artisanal pastries and bakery, The Embassy Café and Bakery at the Starling Mall in Damansara Uptown embarks on an adventure with aim to provide the best of hospitality with a serving of delicious meals. The result: cozy, bright and warm toned eatery that’s all about embassy’s generosity when it comes to services and both Eastern and Western fare of an extensive offering for everybody on the menu.
At Go Noodle, The Starling Mall. A bowl of bursting meatballs (8) for MYR11.20 nett to share. The menu did not state the number of meatballs we would get so 8 means 1 meatball costs MYR1.40 nett. We ordered the same items as before for our individual bowl of noodles so there are no photos.
I have been to Go Noodle at One Utama, MidValley Mall, and Jaya One and each time I see people ordering fried bean curd sheets so I wanted to try too.
So when I was recently invited to taste and review their new menu items of their 3 latest offerings, I couldn't be more excited. I believe these additions will enhance GO Noodle House's wide variety of menu ranging from meatballs, fish paste, pork belly slices to a variety of seafood such as Grouper fish slices, clams, prawns, padi field frogs just to name a few, thus giving the regular diners more option to choose from their current menu.
I was very pleased with this claypot chicken rice. There were generous chunks of boneless chicken (not from the breast I am very sure) and slices of lap cheong in the rice. Very aromatic and delicious. Portion size is fair and for an average person, this is adequate but I could eat more hee...hee...
All in all, if you are a chocolate lover, Cojiitii’s Fresh Milk series is a must try. The ingredients used are as natural as possible too considering every cup contains only milk, pure dark chocolate and sugar. Not to mention they taste wonderful and are reasonably priced too.
My lunch set: Bibimbap, Steamed egg, iced green tea and 3 banchans (kimchi cucumbers, kimchi cabbage, macaroni vege salad) at MYR 23 nett. I kept a lot of the rice and kimchi for dinner and shared the steamed eggs with my friends. The rice is very tasty because it is slightly sticky, fat and round. I chose this Bibimbap because it has a variety of vegetables, a cooked egg yolk and none of those very flavourful sauce.
