I Just Wana Eat

Enjoy Food. Enjoy Life.

We were recommended this cafe, Frisson as the venue to celebrate my bestie's birthday dinner. Dinner is a better choice to head to Uptown, as parking space isn't as horrendous during the daytime. In fact, some of us have been here, especially for their dessert. 

For a Monday night, I would say I am pleasantly surprised by the flow of customers that patronize this cafe. In fact, it was full house. Upon trying their selection of food, I could then understand why. 

Frisson does serve good quality of food, with pretty varying selections, and I was most surprised with the offering of fish head curry.

As a start, I had the Salted Caramel Latte. I love the slightly foamy, yet creamy and soothing coffee. This was indeed an aromatic cup of coffee, despite I wish that the taste of Salted Caramel was a tad stronger.

The food presentation was amazing, and us being there as the sun set, added point to the place. I loved moment as the sun sets, and the golden ray shined through the glass door right to our seating area. 

The salad was fresh, with lots of greens, corn, tomatoes and egg. Served with vinaigrette , this surely perks up our appetite. 

Classic Salad. Price-RM13.90
This I was told is one of their best seller. The grilled salmon with linguine. I liked the salmon that was so tasty, and grilled to perfection. The linguine was soaked with just the right amount of tomato sauce. It carried just the right balance of sourness, and love the smell of herb. 

Salmon with Fettucine. 
This version of Frisson's skinny pizza was yummy too. Very thin and cheesy. Love the melted cheese that topped this delicious piece of pizza.

This bagel with egg, filled with beef patty, and served with melted cheese was a winner dish too. Beef was very moist. 

We all nod with approval as we sipped in the creamy curry to our mouth. This pot of fish head went so well with white rice, and the flavour was very rich. Tasted better that some restaurant that served fish head curry, and yet, I still have to remind myself, yes, I'm actually having this dish in a cafe. 

Salmon Fish Head Curry. Price-RM34.90

A cafe that served food that tasted above expectation, and has great variety of food. Our stomach were all too full, but my friend raved about their dessert being super good, which refers to their waffle.

Awesome Canteen. What a lovely name to a F&B outlet. The presence of this restaurant cum cafe had somehow lifted the image of the otherwise old looking shoplots at Taman Paramount. 

Ideal for photo opportunities 

The glass door and window used permit lots of natural sunlight into the cafe, whilst the lights that are hanging from the ceiling gave a more natural feeling and warmness to Awesome Canteen. 

Love the use of light boxes with artistic images, canteen like seating, especially the chairs, and lots of plants within.

While waiting for all to reach, I had their Carrot Cake. It had a good balance of carrot and raisin, fluffy enough, with tinge of cinnamon smell, and completed well with cream cheese frosting.

I liked their teabag tea that offered me just the right balance of taste and smell between the lemongrass and ginger. 
Lemongrass & Ginger Tea. Price-RM9.90 
Who wouldn't be a happy with a plate of fries for sharing? Love the thickness of the fries, dipped in the special sauce. 

Basket of Fries. Price-RM8.90 
The beef burger served with Rocky Blue cheese tasted absolutely delicious. Meat was so juicy and marinated so well, accompanied by fries and coleslaw gave my lunch mate a fulfilling meal,  

Beef - Rocky Blue Cheese Burger. Price-RM26.90 
I had their butterfish. Grilled to perfection, I could feel the firm texture of the fish. The fried sweet potatoes and grilled prawns were absolutely yummy, and the sauce that accompanied this dish definitely deserved a thumbs up.

Paleo Butterfish. Price-RM27.90 

My SIL highly recommended their Tofu Salad which was certainly something outside the norm. It was a delight to tried this salad. It was filled with sengkuang, tofu, lettuce, almond, pine nuts, purple cabbage, and cucumber. I perhaps missed out some ingredients too, but importantly, this was soo extremely good. The sauce striked a balance between sweetness and sourish. 

Tofu Salad. Price-RM19.90 
Verdict : Awesome place to chill with friends. Nice homemade cakes, and one of a kind Tofu Salad.

One weekend, me and my best friend decided to explore China Town. I wanted to reminisce the good old days, and what is better than having my lunch at Old China Kafe which also served as antique gallery that I can get to appreciate while savoring my meal. 

Entrance to the Old China Kafe

Beautiful wall, surrounded with lots of old frames of photos 
Steps leading to the toilet. Look at the old fridge which is still functioning.

As appetizer, we ordered the Pie-Tee which were crispy hat-shaped cones made of rice flour, and we filled this up with bean sprouts, cucumber, sweet turnip (which were slow cooked till soft) and some fried onion. This served as a good snack, and has to go with dash of the chilli sauce. Despite the filling tasted good, I felt the 'Top-Hat' lacked crispiness. 

Pie-Tee/Top Hats. Price-RM7.80

Opted for the Coconut Rice which looked so beautifully as it is cooked with tinge of blue pea flower. We were highly satisfied with the Nyonya Fried Chicken, that carried slight spiciness, cooked with local herbs, roasted coconut grantin and fragrant coconut cream. The sauce was creamy enough and went really well with the rice. 

Nyonya Rendang Chicken. Price-RM15.90; Coconut Rice. Price-RM1.90
The mixed vegetables cooked with oyster sauce were stir fried till just nice, maintaining the vegetable freshness. 

Chinese Mix Vegetables. Price-RM10.80
Old furniture had surely maintained its charm, with the place surrounded by tourists to Malaysia, and locals as well. 

A charming cafe 

Verdict : Satisfying food taste operated within a charming old cafe occupying the heritage row. Ought to at least experience once by locals, and a must for tourists.

If I were to award a restaurant for the most interesting concept and design, I would award it to non other than Brolly. 

The 6 of us took the challenge of getting in to town for our dinner gathering, and upon battling the jam, we all reached safely on the rainy evening. 

I was pleased as soon as I turned into Menara Felda also known as Platinum Park, being greeted by 3 artistic mannequins. With the cooling breeze that greeted me, I was in a great mood as I stepped in to Brolly. 

The lighted bus that serve as bar area stole the limelight, and what a unique idea this is. I love the transparent glass panels that surround Brolly, and I was smitten by the aromatic popcorn that was popping away. Its always nice that guests are given the popcorn as snack, foc. Lovely gesture. 

The outside are of Brolly 

The interior was seriously impressive. I seemed to walk through sections of display that seemed to be endless and was unique on its own. 

The design revolved around various theme, which seemed like inspiration from travels, and mechanic, as I saw gramaphone records, US license plate, and tools used by mechanic being used as decorative items, which were all plastered neatly on different walls. 

Interesting interior 

Bar seating area 

Pool table, with car hung upside-down

The highlight of the interior ought to be this pillar of wash basins that used tyres as sink, gasoline pumps for tank, and side mirrors hung all over the pillar. Love the lighted Christmas tree that reflected onto the side mirrors. 

How much I love the Christmas tree side-by-side with the washing "sink"
The room that we reserved was big, and I love the car ream used as decorative to the room's door. 
Nice room for privacy 
The menu was somewhat interesting, combining 9 categories of food, that ranged from Chinese, Japanese, Western, with aplenty of offerings such as live seafood, pizza, chicken wings, rice and desserts. 

Their drink menu was refreshing to me, and one range of drinks included beer booze mixed with margarita, and other flavorings were also available. 

Classic Beergarita. Price-RM28

The appetizer was so charming in presentation, with the fried onion that took centrestage. Those that came slightly later has totally no clue what was this. The onion was beautifully opened up, and fried till crispy.The coating was thin enough and the sweetness of onion was apparent, and dip was yummy to accompany each strip of the onion.

Onion Flower. Price-RM18
The salad was deliciously healthy and the light sauce that accompanied them, a good start to our dinner. 

Rocket Mango & Grilled Watermelon and Pineapple Salad. Price-RM22 & RM15

The buffalo wings came with 9 choices of flavors and we picked the Kung Po, and the Japanese Curry version. As much as they were both very tasty, and were strong in flavour, I felt I was crunching too much of the skin, that resulted from the batter. 
Each serving came with 3 pieces of big sized chicken wing, cut to 6 pieces.

Buffalo Wings. Kung Po and Japanese Curry version. Price-RM18 each 

The one order that I think I would repeatedly order is the Prawn . Reasonable in size, they were fried till extremely crunchy, highly fragrant, and coated well with spices. 

Prawn Popcorn. Price-RM23

The pizza choice we made was Seafood Matriciana. It tasted fairly well, with thin crust, and topped with small cuts of seafood and lots of goodness from the cheesy cheese. 

Seafood Matriciana Pizza. Price-RM28

The one item that was enjoyed the least was the spring chicken with Chamalla sauce (used mix of herbs). Lovely presentation, with some salad, mashed potatoes, and herb sauce that accompanied it, but the taste of the herbs was overwhelming to me, and somewhat I did not like the herb taste. 

Spring Chicken. Price-RM45

We also took the chance to celebrate a lovely friend birthday, and with that, we were presented with unbelievably generous amount of dessert, COMPLIMENTARY! Wow! 
There were 6 of us, and 6 jars of dessert were brought to us.
Love the simple presentation that used mason jar, with generous portion of each. What we tasted included Creme Brulee - extremely creamy and milky, Honey Yoghurt - sourish and totally appetizing, Chunky Peanut Butter Granola - healthy and crunchy, and Rocky Road - chewy and yummy. 
Everyone has their own favorite, and I must, all tasted equally delectable. 

Dessert In Mason Jar. Usual Price-RM16 each
Verdict : It's a great place for booze, finger food, plenty of food varieties. Service was exceptional. Price is fair, however, there are some seafood that is priced on a high side.

Red Tomato @ Pantai Cenang, Langkawi

Posted by Sherlyn K On 3:52 PM 0 comments

It has been more than a decade that I last been to Langkawi. I truly enjoyed my recent trip here, and I think Langkawi is one of the places that tourists to Malaysia ought to visit. 

I fully depended on reviews on Trip Advisor for recommendation of F&B outlets. 

Red Tomato is one of the outlets that is top on their list, and best of all, it is located strategically at Pantai Cenang area. 

I love their very inviting entrance, and the restaurant was in fact filled with customers.

Busy restaurant 
We ordered their salad as starter, and do expect long wait for your food. We waited close to 30 minutes, for our first dish, the salad to be served. 

This was filled with lots of greens, tomatoes, avocado, mango, cucumber, cranberries and smoked pepper tuna. There were all so fresh, and the slight salty smoked pepper tuna truly complimented the salad, and with a taste of mango sweetness, this was a yummy salad. 
Wellness Salad. Price-RM30.50
 The Carbonara was cooked to perfection. We requested for chicken to replaced its chicken ham that was originally listed in their menu. The sauce was creamy enough and overall was a tasty plate of pasta. 
Carbonara. Price-RM26
For its pizza, there is a choice of either the margherita or the basil pesto, which came with the basic ingredients, ie. tomato or basil pesto, with mozzarella cheese. 
As for additional toppings, each item is priced at either RM2 or RM4, which we opted for salami and fresh mushroom. 

We were very pleased with the thin and crispy pizza, and it was certainly delicious. 

We left with happy stomach, and yes, this is truly a recommended restaurant.

By chance, I became a follower of Cake Jalantiung on Instagram, and I more often than not, realized that I actually salivate when I looked at how tempting the cake that this cafe produces. I was also attracted to how passionate the team behind this cafe have towards what they are doing. 

Recently, I saw the news that they opened their second outlet, also within Shah Alam, and I 
after numerous failed attempt to be here, I finally did, today. Yay! Have a small sense of achievement, somewhat. Haha. 

Located at the corner lot below Menara Naza, I had some difficulty finding the right lift to get to the Ground Floor of this building. Apparently they have the office block lift that links to the cafe, and the one I went to was the Residences section of the building. 

I can't wait to check out the cakes that await us on this Friday afternoon. 

The simple cosy corner occupied by Cake Jalan Tiung 
Overall, I find that they have limited choices of drink, however, I feel that it is fine, as the focus of their existence is their yummylicious cakes.

Simple offering of drinks 
I love their use of simple blend of pastel colors, and the panels that matches hanging from the ceiling, and side panel of their counter. 

A colorful area that is their cashier and cake display area
We ordered their Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake, and their Chocolate Tart. Both deserved thumbs up. 

Lovely use of plates
Its highly tempting when I looked at this piece of cake. The chocolate cake, was insanely delectable. It has just the right level of texture which has the right balance of density, and extremely moist. It has a light coating of buttercream, and drizzled with lots of salted caramel on top of the cake. The salted caramel truly matches perfectly with the chocolate cake. The blend of saltiness, caramely taste, ooohh la la.... superb taste...

It has been a long long time that I haven't tasted something this lip-smacking. 

Salted Caramel & Choc. Price-RM13

Upon feeling satisfied over the cakes, and the chocolate tart which was extremely chocolatey, we ordered their chocolate chips cookies. 

The cookies were heated up slightly, and served with small glass of milk, which we are to dip into with the cookies.  
Love the slightly soft cookies, and yet slightly crunchy but what kills it was the thick chocolate used within the cookies. It has the melted chocolate that tasted extremely tantalizing. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies. 5pcs - RM8

The soft melted effect of the chocolate within the cookies 
Cake Jalan Tiung also supply their cakes to quite a number of cafes around town, and the type of cake differs from time to time. Do check out their Instagram to find out more info. 

Their space is rather limited, but that definitely doesn't deter their fans from flocking to this cake to fulfill their craving for cakes.
