I Just Wana Eat

Enjoy Food. Enjoy Life.

Simply Thai @ Taman Gembira, KL

Posted by Sherlyn K On 11:56 AM 0 comments

I need to restart my momentum in blogging again. 

An almost once a year gathering close to Christmas led me to this, absolutely quaint yet surprisingly warm and well decorated Thai restaurant at the neighborhood area of Taman Gembira, KL.

Check out the hanging deco - from paper tang lung, to decorative umbrellas, and fanciful plates to deco the wall 

Nice leaves by the side of walls
Fish cake is one of my favorite started to any of my Thai meal. This fish cakes were fluffed with slightly thicker texture - filled with dense fish cake, and aromatic herbs. Absolutely yummy. 

Fish Cakes. Price-RM18.90 
The spring rolls were crispy, with fragrant taste of prawn fillings. However, felt the ingredients were loose ie. not enough.. 

Spring Rolls. Price-RM13.90

I prefer the clear tom yum soup, and this was surely a lift to my appetite. It carried the tangy taste that lingers in your mouth after each spoonful, the sourish balance with spiciness, despite I felt its a little over for my level of spicy tolerance. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it. The portion at this price of RM15.90 was enough for the 4 of us - thus I would say, really worth it. 

Clear Tom Yam Chicken Soup. Price-RM15.90
The paku pakis that carried the slight slimmy texture was yumms - and the fragrant shrimp paste was absolutely delicious. The right kinda vege to complete a Thai meal. 

Paku Pakis with Shrimp Paste. Price-RM15.90 

The one dish that got us nodding non-stop was the BBQ Talapia Fish with Salt. It was grilled to perfection with the flesh tasting so fresh, and with just the right level of being cooked. The salt by the side on certain part of the skin added extra ummph, and not forgetting, the green chilli sauce. 

BBQ Talapia Fish with Salt. Price-RM49.90
The 2 desserts to end our meal, the Tup Tim Krob and the Mango Sticky rice. The waterchestnut was of the right size, crunchy with just enough coating (I've tried many with way too thick coating that gave me way too much slimy taste, and with insufficient waterchestnut to bite), and topped with stripes of jackfruit. I really enjoyed this. 

Tup Tim Krob. Price-RM6.90
Last but not least, the Mango Sticky Rice- the mango was so sweet, and accompanied by the sticky rice with the right texture, drizzled by coconut milk - also one of the best I've tried. 

Mango Sticky Rice. Price-RM10.90

The drinks were left out from my photos - but seriously, their milk tea needs to be in the must order list. Not to sweet, yet with the aromatic tea taste. 

Verdict : The ambiance and the food taste deserved many thumbs up. It is also a very clean restaurant, and spacious. A well suited place for gatherings, to those who enjoys Thai food.

I remembered going to this Hainanese restaurant about 10 years ago, and suggested my colleagues to come here for lunch, since Paramount is one of the convenient location for us. . 

Simple, old restaurant yet keeps you coming back 
I barely remembered what I had previously, but I remembered it was good taste of home-cooked food. As one stepped in, one would realized there's nothing fancy about the restaurant but plain simplicity. The service was certainly one of the quickest that I've experienced in a restaurant.  

For choice of vegetables, we went with the option recommended which was the Kailan with Salted Fish. It was indeed one of the best I've tried. The Kailan was so fresh, and tasted crunchy, has strong wok-hei and good amount of salted fish within. 
Kailan with Salted Fish. Price-RM15
I'm pretty fascinated by how this fried egg was made. It was made with layers of egg white with choy pou ie. preserved radish. The egg were so soft and as we cut through, the raw egg yolk that tops it, melts through the egg. Yummy.. I can finish this all by myself. 
 Choy Pou Egg.  Price-RM15
The Threadfin Fish @ Ma Yau, was deep fried and texture of skin was so crispy. The simple soya sauce with oil was used as seasoning, and the freshness of the fish was apparent. The thinly fried sliced shredded ginger gave it extra ummph. 

Mayou Fish. Price-RM27

Potatoes is one of my favorite food.They sliced it thinly and braised it with sliced pork - the potatoes was just nice - soft enough, and the sauce was just perfect to go with our rice. The taste was tad sweet, but it is fine by me.  

Potato with Pork. Price-RM15
Verdict : 
The place to go to, when you want a taste of home cooked food.

I have seen long queue at 'Go Noodle', One Utama, several times. Until I was asked by 2 friends, have you tried 'Go Noodle', I felt that perhaps I have missed out something, and feedback from them were that this place serve delicious noodles. 

Last Sunday, I attempted a visit to check out their noodle. Reached at 7pm, the queue was for approximately 20 mins, so we went to do a little shopping before returned to the restaurant. 

Wooden deco 
Extremely busy 
As we stepped in, we were greeted by lots of noise, ahh.. that makes it all the more Chinese feel. 

There were plenty of choices in their menu. One of their specialty are their Shaoxing wine, Mian Xian noodle, and varities of pan mee. 

My friend has highly recommended their mian xian and she was right. I ordered the Fuzhou Fishball mian xian, and add on fish paste. The mian xian has a silky smooth texture, and I like the clearness of the broth. The fishball has adequate meat within, and the fish paste has a springy texture. The parsley and spring onion gave the bowl of noodle slightly more fragrant. An almost perfect bowl of noodle, at a very reasonable price.

Fuzhou Mian Xian. Price-RM9.80. Add Fish Paste - RM2.80 
My friend ordered the same Mian Xian with Grouper Fish, similarly yummy with the freshness of the fish meat. 

Grouper Fish Slice. Price-RM15

Verdict :
Simple delicious with lots of varieties with absolutely reasonable price.

After this many times, it was my first dining experience at Ah Tuan Ee's, I suppose the feeling to have Peranakan food came to us. 

The heritage looking entrance seemed to gave us a warm welcome. Nice ambiance with nice decoration around the restaurant. 

The wooden door that greeted us 

Clean restaurant 
Pai Tee that came with lots of slow cooked turnip, shreds of carrot and spring onion is one of my favorite Nyonya appetizer. This one at Ah Tuan Ee was one of the best I've tried, mainly due to the fragrant slow cooked turnip, and the very crispy thin and crispy shell that held the vegetables together.  

Pai Tee
I ordered the fried tung hoon noodle. I like the wok taste, and it was tasty, and came with lots of ingredients, that included prawns, beansprout, squid and lots of egg. 

Fried Tung Hoon 

The green curry chicken was a pleasant discovery. It has a mild green curry taste, and a prominent lime taste that made this such an appetizing order. Only comment is that I wish they have cut the chicken to smaller pieces. 

Green Curry Chicken. 

Overall, this restaurant has delivered a satisfactory meal to us.

Restoran Boston Baru @ Kapar, Klang

Posted by Sherlyn K On 11:37 AM 0 comments

The mention of Boston restaurant to any Klangnite, it should somehow ring the bell. For patrons that looks for good tasting food, not cost you a hole in your pocket, and doesn't mind the environment, this is The restaurant for you.

Important to note, its either you come before they open their restaurant, so that you can be in queue to be their first round of customers... else, be prepared for probably the longest wait for your food to be served. Waiting time exceeding 1 hour is common, and you are lucky if it doesn't exceed 2. 

Despite it all, I still feel the food is worth all the hassle. 

Queue starts 6pm+ 
A common sight 
When they open their door, all those in queue will go around to get their seat, either inside the restaurants, on the pavement across the road, or along the front door of the shoplots (as they close for business). Those who comes after all seats are taken has to be prepared for the longest wait for their food and queue numbers will be given out. All those seated inside will get priority to order. 

I had meal here, probably more than 10 times, and it should have been more if not for the waiting time that most people dread or skip. 

They have a few must orders and their fried noodle does taste above par. 

We ordered their Tapioca Noodles which is made from tapioca starch. The taste of the noodle surely carried the 'wok hei', and love to the see this translucent noodle.They also use pork lard which was so crunchy and tasty and the noodle was perfectly cooked, with the right chewiness. 

Tapioca Noodle. Price-RM6
We ordered the large steam la la.I like how their lala was of the right size, with flesh in every shell. The chinese wine, bird eye chilli and lots of ginger used to steam the lala definitely gave the kick to our tastebud. The fried garlic that topped it was so crunchy and lend a strong aroma to the delicious plate of steamed lala. 

Steam Lala. Price-RM24
I love this cereal mantis shrimp by Boston. The size of the mantis shrimp was just nice, despite that some that were missing solid flesh, however, for those that you can, it has ample flesh for biting. 

The cereal cooked together with egg has a distinctive smell of butter which was divine. It was fried so perfectly that each cereal was so crunchy, sweet, tasty and we almost finish all parts of the crumbs. 

Mantis Shrimp. Price-RM16
 As we end the dinner, all seats are fully occupied, and new line of queue was in place. 

Another common sight 
A day later, I was already craving for the same food, and the food experience indeed lingered in my mind. With proper time planning, cutting on waiting time is indeed achievable. 

A meal that costed only RM50 was highly satisfactory to us. For the quality and price of food, I would willingly compromise with the long waiting time.

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. 

Full house on Monday night

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. 

Salted Caramel Latte.
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. 

Skinny 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. 

Carrot Cake. 

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.
