But I think it does deserve a visit if you are a fan of ramen.
Verdict: I’m glad that we’ve finally tried this Tokyo style ramen and definitely a contented ramen experience. We will be back!
Kuro Musashi Ramen - MYR 27+ (6% GST = MYR 28.60 nett).
Ante, located beside Nandos, (2 shops beside Nandos to be exact) is a non-halal restaurant that serves premier pork steaks in One Utama. Although the meals displayed in the menu below is on the high end, we are here today to review on their set lunch which only available from 11AM to 3PM.
ANTE has upped the ante, let's hope the other eateries will place their bets the right way too!
Marco Creative Cuisine Review: comfortable pleasant setting; value-for-money meals; you can’t go wrong with just about any order (we each had our favourites with me loving the salad and soups and the boys drooling over the steaks and pasta); whatever you do though, don’t miss dessert – our top pick, the Bruleed Cheesecake; and cocktails are beaut too!
Verdict: 1. The wide-ranging unique and creative menu in MARCO makes it a great venue for those seeking for gastronomical pleasures without burning a hole in the pocket. 2. Recommended dishes: Bacon & Egg Spaghetti, Pork Loin Steak, Brulee Cheesecake
Also ordered one of their bestsellers: Siu Yuk Tom Yum. The dish is good enough for 2-3 people, and comes loaded with chunks of roast pork and juicy mushrooms. The soup is everything a good tom yum should be: sour and appetising, great with rice, and spicy with a kick.
Siu Yuk fried rice at MYR 19+ (MYR 20.14 nett). The siu yuk rind is crispy but some may find the meat to be on the dry side.
Squid in Spicy Lime Sauce @ RM 37 Mild spicy, love the sourish soup base from the salted veggie and lime just add in the punch that is need. Interesting that they do add in chinese sausage too.
The set meal was very filling and satisfying, the jumbo tonkatsu was just right for someone who loves deep fried pork chop.
11am. First customer of the day! The restaurant boasts a classy interior with cool grey walls, sleek wooden furniture and black and white photos/calligraphy. The aesthetics are standard across all of their branches.
The meat isn't dry though the sauce certainly brings the flavor out even more. Definitely well worth it as you can refill the rice, soup and cabbage. Oh you can opt for either normal or multi grain rice too at no extra charge. While I wouldn't recommend bringing your date here since you'll want to stuff yourself silly with the free refills, it's got a nice ambience for a nice date.
Unagi and Grilled Salmon Don with Chawanmushi and Miso RM 48 This is another don we ordered and it is Unagi and Grilled Salmon Don. We know there are many people who are not a fan of sashimi or fresh seafood so this is a good option. Sweet and tasty unagi (eel) with lightly grilled salmon with rice. This also comes with also comes with chawanmushi and miso soup. Overall, we love the food at Ichiro Sushi Bar at Eat Paradise Isetan One Utama. The sashimi here is very fresh and what you pay is what you get in terms of quality of the food.
Ichiro Sushi Bar at Eat Paradise One Utama Shopping CentreIchiro Sushi Bar at Eat Paradise One Utama Shopping Centre offers one of the best sushi and sashimi...
Came back for another round of Japanese Don goodness. The best place in Klang Valley for Japanese fresh fish don if you're craving for one.
Molokhia Minced Leaf Stew + one side dish - RM11.55 Actually, I was a bit skeptical initially. Well, surprisingly, this Molokhia Minced Leaf Stew at this Tut's Eatery tastes great, I do not smell or taste anything greenish like grass. Molokhia is made up of stewed Molokhia leaves spiced with butter, garlic, coriander, cumin and black pepper. In fact, my friend love it, especially when it is eaten with toasted crispy buttered bread. Another highly recommended dish.
Bamya Lamb Stew + 1 side dish (RM 38.50) Double thumbs up for this dish!. Enjoy this tiny lady finger from Egypt where they are beautifully cooked in a delicious stew with the tender premium lamb cubes. Enjoy them with the dish of your choice.
Biram bamya succulent beef stew with 1 side (RM23.90) Daging lembut bersama bendi kecil. Kuah pekat. Very recommended..
While the meat is good and all, my favourite is actually the scallops, which are served in small tin foil bowls swimming in a flavourful broth. The scallops are sweet and juicy with a buttery taste – extremely addictive – and the broth is delicious too
Our lunch for two came up to RM120, which was pretty reasonable for a barbecue buffet. If you come on weekday afternoons, it’s RM39.90++ per pax.
Craving Japanese bbq ? At Rocku Yakiniku @ 1 Utama Shopping Centre, take your pick from premium cuts of meat and seafood, from tempting slices of pork belly ...
Overall, i only like the noodle, which is very tasty
Bamboo Herbal Prawn was damn good and I loved it. Bamboo Herbal Prawn @ RM 12.90
Back in May 2012, I have eaten some signature dishes such as Pork Intestines, deep fried pork knuckle, Heng Hwa Bee Hoon, Duck with Yam in Pu Tien when it just opened in One Utama so this time I did not order any of those dishes.
Garlic Fried Rice was superb. Delicious combination of Garlic Fried Rice and Fried Chicken. The portion is more than enough for 2 people. Kimuchi G.RC @ RM 33
Chicken Katsu Curry Rice. I swear that the portion has gotten smaller. Not just the plate.
Next to come is the Sirloin Steak Set priced at RM30.00. The set is served with rice, miso soup and mashed potato & salad. The steak is cooked medium well and served with teriyaki sauce but to my disappointment, the steak is lack of taste. This is the common problem with most restaurant, but probably it's only me that expecting wagyu beef quality everywhere. It's overall good and I think it's a good bargain for this price range in this environment. No complain and I visited this place that many times means that it must be quite good to keep me going back.
Verdict: Overall, our Peking Duck course meal was rather satisfying but the portion of the food was a bit small and less compatible to the price. With total damage of RM500.00, (we also had white rice (RM3.00/pax), Oolong Tea (RM6.00/pax) and titbit (RM2.00×3), we certainly hoping a more satisfying meal.
Prosperity Abalone Treasure Pot Feast (RM468 for 6-8 pax ; RM888 for 10 pax)
Amongst the mains, Claypot Lou Shee Fun left us with the deepest impression. The texture was amazing... addictively bouncy and the dish was expertly cooked. There were not much ingredients and toppings inside though... except a handful of deep fried Pork Lards
Snack for lunch - Curry Chee Cheong Fun (flat rice noodles) with pork slices, potatoes and beancurd puffs (tofu pok) at MYR 10.90++ (10% service charge and 6% SST so total is MYR 12.64 nett) at Oriental Cravings, One Utama. The chee cheong fun was hidden under the potatoes and beancurd puffs. As this was a snack portion, I was able to finish it on my own but was quite full after that.
Pumpkin, prawn and siu yoke fried meehoon... SWOON FACTOR, 9/10. Plump fresh sea prawns from sekinchan, sweet pumpkin and the crispy bits of sesame seed. If this dish isn't on the menu soon, I will personally write and complain to the management. Whoever they may be.
If you are such a big fan of beef noodle, then you wouldn’t want to miss Mak’s Chee Signature “Tendon Brisket Dry Noodle” 柱侯牛腩汤面 RM13.90 featuring wonton noodle as the base topped with lots of beef tendon and brisket combination! Mak’s Chee wonton noodles have a great texture just like having the “angel’s hair” while tendon briskets are slowly braised to perfection that you are able to taste the collagen goodies all around it.
Every packet of their wanton is filled with plump and fresh shrimp; I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. As for those dumplings, each of them is stuffed to the brim with delicious filling so if you want something more filling than shrimps, dumplings have pork in it but my heart and palate is won over by the Wanton Tendon Soup (RM 14.90).
我们点的主食是炸猪扒，端上桌时有点“受宠若惊”，因为明明是注明着 Petite Lunch Set，可是分量一点也不 petite (小份的意思)。炸猪扒虽然较薄，但是蛮大块的，裹上面包糠，油炸而成。马铃薯泥的味道不会有太多的奶油味，保持着马铃薯本身的味道，口感绵密细腻。猪扒配着马铃薯泥和一旁的芝士酱一起吃起来别有一番风味！
DH ordered the Crispy Pork Knuckle for RM 66. We didn't expect for it to be a big portion but boy, it was! And the name says it all - it's really crispy! It's served on a sizzling hot plate and comes with mixed vegetables and potato wedges.
Roast Piglet (Half) RM118 - This western baby piglet delight is very much tastier and interesting to savour if you compare it with those in the Chinese restaurants. It was meatier and gorgeous. You should try it to believe it.
The main issue with me has always been the size; for some reason, I think Kyochon’s chicken wings are extremely small – like they get them from kampung chickens or something. 12 pcs here equates to an 8 pc set from 4Fingers (my favourite KFC by the way). Pricewise, Kyochon is also higher than some other KFC franchises, and of course, 45 minutes is too long a wait for a resto that wasn’t full.
Taste wise; it made us to finish almost the tiniest flesh that was on the bone. That described of how well seasoned/sauced of each chicken. Unfortunately, we only managed to try soy garlic series. We definitely will return for other series and larger portion.
½ Chicken original is a perfect choice for those who cannot handle the spice. My sister loved it while myself and my bf loved the red pepper. ½ Original with small meal upgrade @ RM 36.50
【#Enjoy八打灵 隐蔽的咖啡店】被提名Time Out KL Food & Drink Awards 2011 和2012 年最棒的咖啡店， 【Whisk Outpost】在 1 Utama Shopping Centre的地点是相当 隐蔽；所以今天要介绍给大家。
My girlfriend super excited, she been telling me cakes are awesome over here. She recommended me Red Velvet which is best seller and Granny's Cake second best seller. If were to compare between Red Velvet and Granny's Cake, my choice would be Granny's Cake, creamy, fluffy, moist, while Red Velvet slightly sweet for me, overall both cakes are fine for me.
Espresso with 7oz milk (Latte) Coffee art is simple but I would say this latte taste great. Usually I taste milky with latte however this one the coffee taste is strong too. It balances the taste of the coffee’s bitter with the milk, additional point is the bubble foam is not too thick.
Highlights: Being a meat eater, I enjoyed all of the meat items, especially the smoked duck from the premium counter, the tom yum squid, the black pepper dory and the coffee chicken. The ingredients were fresh and tasty – none of that awful bloody/iron taste you usually get from meat / seafood that have been frozen and thawed countless times. The soup base we picked (milky seafood) was too salty, though. Other than that, no complaints. We ended our meal with ice cream, fresh fruits and pudding for dessert.
BBQ or Hotpot? Why not have both at Seoul Garden? The restaurant chain specialises in Korean-inspired cuisine with a local twist, and offers a variety of veg...
Kalau makan dekat Seoul Garden ni memang hentam ambik seafood dengan kambing je. Memang tak lah nak pandang ayam. Yang tu hari-hari boleh makan masa lunch. Seafood dengan kambing dah la mahal, bukan selalu pun boleh makan.
The value meal set is too good to bypass so I ordered a bowl of wanton noodles soup with a glass of iced honey chrysanthemum drink from the set menu. This set included a char siew bao and the total price is MYR 15.90+ (10% service charge = MYR 17.50 nett). As usual I kept half portion of the noodles and the whole bao for dinner.
Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert Restaurant could be a place for a quick meal to refuel you during lunch time. Currently having four outlets in Kuala Lumpur.
Overall, the food we had was enjoyable and reasonably priced for the portion you get. Frankly speaking, I had my reservations before coming here due to the reviews I read on their FB page. But as it turned out, almost everything was more than satisfying and even exceeded my expectations for a chain restaurant. My dining partners, some of them who had eaten at Sheng Kee a couple of times before this, also agreed that the meal experience we had was better than what they had previously.
First must order: Chuka iidako (baby octopus). I love chewy things (like squid and mochi), so chuka iidako is a must have whenever I go to any Japanese restaurant. The one at Sushi Zanmai, however, has perfected the marinade, so much so that it doesn’t feel right eating it anywhere else. It has a nice balance between sweet and savoury, peppered with fragrant sesame seeds on a bed of fresh lettuce and shredded radish. Portions are of a reasonable size as well.
It was a good lunch for us. The food was good but the service was a bit slow maybe because it was too busy. It is one of the reasonably priced Japanese Restaurant for me.
Unatama Don (RM 15.80 ++) Love the slightly chewy texture of the Japanese rice, paired with Unagi Kabayaki & boiled egg with runny eye yolk, AWESOME!
Overall their service is excellent and we didn't wait long for our food. Not sure how's the crowd and waiting time like during their peak hours but the food here is quite good.
The place is pretty, the food is yummy, the price is expensive. The Lavender bakery is still one of my favourites though. I bought the kids these super cute Halloween sugar cookies.
Creamy Mushroom Fettuccine was good. Al-dente spaghetti cooked in creamy sauce and topped with grilled salmon. I really enjoy it. Add on Grilled Salmon RM 10.35/ Creamy Mushroom Fettuccine @ RM 20.75
