5/10. Good ambience (and free WiFi - just ask the staff for the password), but I’m probably not coming back here for the food (or at least the breakfast/lunch/dinner). In my opinion, has many similarities to Mei (also considered a fairly healthy eating spot) and I just think that the quality - at a similar price point - is just much better at Mei. Probably the reason for the slightly harsher review, but a nice spot to have coffee (or at least it has the ambience for it)!
I went for the Hoisin Smoked Duck Rice Roll (RM16), which came in a generous portion with Japanese rice, tempura mushroom and onsen egg. Considering the price vs portion, it was pretty value for money! The duck had a sweet flavour which was closer to a teriyaki glaze, and the meat was tender but not gamey. Loved nibbling on the flavourful extra layer of duck fat on the top ! The tempura mushrooms weren’t greasy and gave the dish a crispy element. Egg was perfectly poached. All in all, a solid rice bowl.
There is a "cool look" to both the interior and exterior of Garage 51, with an mordernist and industrial deco, coupled with reburbished huge oil drums as seats at the entrance, plus the huge mural painting on the big wall outside; you can't miss it. And definitely serves up a good Latte!
I'd say good combinations, although a little salty as expected but tasty, appetizing, and satisfying meal.
Food today: 7 / 10 👍👍😋😋
This is the 8th visit to Milligram since October 27, and some days like today, the Café is almost empty before 12pm and then empty again after 2pm.
What do We Like about Marco, One Utama? -Lunch sets which were value for money
I had a very satisfying meal at Marco. The food is tasty, and the service is prompt and impressive. It kind of feels like having fine dining cuisine, but not as ‘frilly’ and at a much more affordable price.
Me? I love burger.
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.
The Lab Burger (Beef) seems a bit dry, with thin patty. Ayam Kau Hijau is better, thick and juicy. The Awesome Fries are definitely better than the Nachos. The fried chicken is surprisingly good,..
Here's the location.
Technically, I fell in love with the sauce that was served with the nachos. It was absolutely finger-licking goodness. I was trying to figure out what was that extra 'kick' that they added into the sauce and sprinkled on the nachos, but the only closest clue to that answer would be "curry powder". It definitely added that 'definition' to the whole meal's flavour.
What do We Like about Grub by Ahong & Friend? -Reasonably priced no frills steakhouse -Tasty steak and unique Yorkshire pudding
No better way to say I love you, than wagyu. We enjoyed our Wagyu NY Strip MB01 and Angus flanksteak from Grub by Ahong & Friends.
Don’t be fooled by its shop appearance and weird name, they actually serve one of the best steak in town at an affordable price. We are lucky to get a buy 1...
As for the 240g chicken patty, it was made with 70% chicken breast and 30% chicken thigh, the patty was juicy. The avocado pesto salsa was refreshing and fragrant to go with the chicken patty, good combination it was.
The vibes here are quite interesting but a bit expensive, eg. Paleo Beef Burger (RM 26.90) where the portion is quite big.
Would I head here again? Hmmmm, if I want a cheerful place to hang out at , that is noisy and full of laughter and people talking and all, then yea, I would head here. For the food specifically , not so much. Like I said in the intro, first for its boisterous environment and then for the food.
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.
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!
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.
Head down to Secret Of Louisiana located in the heart of Petaling jaya while enjoying the memorable moment with sunset by the Lake .
Finally, it was our long awaited dinner time! We had dinner at Secret of Louisiana! This was my second visit. We were also celebrating my birthday when we were here 2 years ago. But, we didn't make a reservation at that time, so we didn't get a nice table. This time, hubby made a reservation through Offpeak. Therefore, we not only got a nice table just right beside the lake, we also got a 10% discount! :P
With a nice view by the lake, it is not a surprise that this restaurant for office workers to take a break from their confined cubicles to have their lunches. The limitless pasta, salad, soup and drink for one adult costs only RM19.90 from Monday to Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, it costs RM22.00 per adult. Adults with kids will also enjoy this family friendly dining atmosphere as kids get to eat for RM13.90 per child any day of the week. The availability hours are from 11.30am to 3.00pm. This offer is also available during eve and public holidays. The price is 6% GST inclusive but exclude a 10% service charge.
What do We Like about Xiao by Crustz, SS 2? -The aesthetically designed interior with live plant and wooden furniture -The uniquely crafted pastries and cakes
Miso, 17 ringgit This was yummmmmm 🙂 Having Miso was like having a Magnum ice cream. There is the usual Paddle Pop, Cornetto and then … there is Magnum. Yea, this was like having a Magnum.
So there you go, finally I fixed my mind on La Vie En Rose (MYR 17) despite I really wish to have another morsel along, but then worried can’t finish it as the tummy had just been carbo-loaded 5 minutes ago. A dainty rhapsody composed on the notes of lychee, raspberry rose chantilly, pastry cream, raspberry jam and sable breton. Indeed very catchy and boldly alluring especially with that red petal crowning on top and pate a choux dough filled up with velvet custard.
Overall we like the burger and like the pop corn chicken the most.
Three juicy cut Portobello mushroom in the Beautiful mess, together with runny egg yolk and the sauce, indeed a beautiful mess in MyBurgerLab
My special salted egg yolk beef burger (MYR 21.80 nett). I enjoyed eating this burger although the strong taste of beef does compete with the strong taste of the salted egg yolk for my attention. This salted egg yolk sauce is different from those in Lao Sar Bao. I believe some curry powder has been added to it to make it stand out as a savoury sauce instead of being on the sweet side.
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.
This one is the sriracha chicken plus spaghetti carbonara which was only about RM20. It’s definitely filling and is value for money. The pasta has a lot of mushrooms in it which enriched the taste as well.
After Black Cafe finds its footing within the cafe scene as being superior in every which way. Wooden panels designed to give it the modern feel, food made for the modern man/woman in mind, it’d feel like your in heaven’s doorstep - foodie heaven.
Baked egg with chicken pepperoni RM 13.90: Egg, carrot, button mushroom, capsicum, garlic, mint, tomato sauce, chilli pepper with black charcoal toast Look like Shakshouka that has been given the trimmed down version, it was a little dry. Unusual given that there's egg but it had almost fully cooked.Some may argue this is the stuff of breakfast, I think anytime's a good time for them eggs.
Murni has changed a lot since back in the days, now they no longer sell roti. Food takes a while to be served. Lamb chop mee udon is okay. Somehow food on every other tables look better.
Dah lama tak lepak Murni ni. Sekali datang, masih macam dulu. Orang tak putus putus.
To make things easy for the night, we just go for all time Malaysian Favorite - Nasi Lemak Murni Discovery (RM 13.90). The nasi lemak platter is worth the price paid as it comes generously with a piece of chicken wings, sambal condiments with prawns, hard boiled egg, salted peanuts, slices of cucumbers on a piece of banana leaf. All the essential flavors are there. If we were to nitpick, it would be the sambal condiments lacking the driving factors to complement the rice.
Shellout is one of the seafood restaurant that just serve all their seafood on their table without any plates or bowls. Not just that, you are advised to eat with your bare hands. Yes, this is the well-known which is currently is a trend for seafood indulgence. All their seafood is served freshly in Cajun style which is more widely known as Louisiana seafood boil. Please take note to either come very early or call to book to avoid disappointment by waiting in a long queue.
Visited Shell Out Malaysia at Kota Damansara PJ again after two years. Still crowded, still reasonable price, still the good old items on menu, but flourished with new flavours for more enjoyable Louisiana boil seafood feast.
Since the Yabbies were not in stock, we settled for the King Prawn instead. We had the smallest portion (RM43.90/300g) prepared in Butter Garlic sauce as recommended by them. Needless to say the prawns were delicious because of their quality and freshness.

除了美味的圣诞大餐，Eastin Hotel今年也在酒店大堂设置了Christmas Goodies House！Christmas Goodies House里给大家准备了许多很棒的圣诞礼物选择，用来送礼再适合不过了。
I always love the chance to get some pork and German ale. The food at Spitalfield’s is decent enough to justify the prices, which are what you’d expect from an upscale pub. Many of the food and drinks sounded interesting, and I was keen to try them. The service was very functional, but that’s not a big deal for me. Spitalfield’s will probably become our go-to dinner place if we’re ever at Atria Shopping Gallery again.
For dinner, I had the 西班牙猪肉香肠 Spanish Pork Chorizo & 德国猪肉多味腊肠 German Pork Bratwurst, garnished on the side with sauerkraut, sweet mustard and patato salad. The Spanish Pork was an excellent choice.
The environment is really authentic and laid back, which I love.
We love the Poon Choy for its deep and robust flavours from braising abalones, prawns, scallops, clams, sea cucumber, roast duck and other flavourful ingredients. This Treasure Pot is available for dine-in and take-away at RM488+ and diners get to keep the pretty claypot too!
As a prelude to the Chinese New Year festivities, from 17th till 23rd January 2020, Utara will be featuring a Pre Chinese New Year Reunion Buffet Dinner. Priced at MYR 80+ per adult, MYR 60+ for senior citizens and RM40+ per child, the buffet will feature a wide variety of symbolic dishes of prosperity, good luck and abundance that are harmoniously fused among local, Western, Japanese and Indian cuisines.
While Utara may have undergone a complete makeover, the restaurant still retains its signature flavours and will continue so as an ode to their loyal diners. Utara’s exceptional local cuisine such as the Nasi Lemak Utara, Roti Durian, Kari Kepala Ikan, Daging Masak Assam Pedas, Siput Sedut Masak Cili Padi and Ketam Masak Berlada to name a few are what sets Utara apart from competitors in the area.
