Taste of FooChow

Back to office last Sunday to do some COB testing on the system. And since the testing start at 1.00pm, we plan to have lunch near KL area. At this moment, Chui Ling food guide suddenly become so useful, hahaha...At last, decided to try this shop which specialize in Foo Chow cuisine...


No idea how Foo Chow dishes are suppose to be, I just know bout the big big fish ball whereby there is some minced meat in the centre...

We start with our meal with this so called FooChow biscuit...fried flour which shapped like doraemon's dorayaki...inside there's some minced meat and vege, caution there's some chilies inside. No wonder Jo and Joey splitted it out...


And this is my red wine mee sua. I guess this is one of their specialities...Don't be backed of by their red color as it's actually not spicy at all...For those that like wine, can try this...


And this is clear soup noodle which come together with FooChow fish ball...simple


A bow of varietes fish ball and dumpling...

Happi birthday to me...

First of all, thanks so much for all the birthday wishes...be it tru sms, facebook, before the day, on that day itself and also those belated wishes...you all know who you are. Nah, kevin don't say I never thanks ppl for wishing me happi birthday ok!
As usual, nothing much special happened for this year birthday...it just passes like that, I don't even have a birthday cake, someone says want to buy but I still didn't get it till today...Well, no birthday cake, but got this so called birthday present - makan guide book
Chui Ling - One day five meals. I'm pretty sure most ppl already know about this makan show on Astro. For those who have misses any episode or didn't jot down the address of the nice makan place, can get a copy of this book.

The POPULAR food guide - I prefer this more, as it's more colorful, more thicker than the one up there...furthermore, it's bilingual which suits people like me which do not know how to read chinese...

With these 2 useful guide, we don't have to worry when we run of idea on what to eat. Happy hunting for food...

Kwan just back from HK trip and bought us some cute looking snacks...After seeing it, you must be thinking the same as me. He went to HK or Japan, huh???

Teow Chew Stew Duck

Hubby friend brought him here first, and he obviously find the stuff here very suitable for me. Why? I'm always into salty food. Once I have a Teow Chew friend, she told me the food for them is always salty, as I remember when I'm at her house for lunch, even a simple fried egg is full of saltiness...But I'm not Teow Chew. Well, I guess it's the gene inherited by my dad.

This simple yet humble stall is located at corner coffee shop at Restoran Tai Kee, Taman Yulek.One can find it's always packed during lunch time esp weekend with almost every table eating the food from this stall...

Chili sauce, thick black gravy and soup of the day which go well with your rice...

Our plate full of our must-eat list...Hubby's stewed slices of pork. Half fat, half thin which is just nice...Beneath it, was my favourite pork' intensine. Soft yet still crunchy...

Changed to another side, here's is my stewed duck...which is just simply delicious...

Another favourite's salted vege which goes well with the plain white rice...

Still not enough, you can order for the stewed egg and beancurd which is equally nice as well...

As usual, delicious food is always not the healthiest...If mom saw me eating this, she'll definetly says not to eat so much of this stuff...

Color color pan mee...

A glance thru this roadside stall, it's seems that it was just like a normal chinese kopitiam at the village area. But as the saying goes "don't ever judge a book by it's cover" has lead to some new discovery at LIN CHIN COFFEE SHOP

Bored of eating the plain white color pan mee? How about adding in some color to your pan mee? You all must be thinking this is all coloring added pan mee...Nonono, they are actually mixture of vegetable juices...Green is made from spinach, Purple is made from Sweet Potato, and I'm not very sure is the orange or the yellow one is made from Pumpkin, while the white color is the original one...

The homemade chili which give you the extra kick to your pan mee...

Spinach pan mee - dried version, which doesn't look that greeny anymore after mix with black soya sauce. Served together with Char Siew, Hakka fried pork and fried wantan. Find the mee abit hard though but the Hakka fried pork is simply delicious...

Pumpkin Pan Mee - curry version which comes together with loads of stuff: Char Siew, Fish cake, Dried tofu and long bean. The curry soup were light, sweet and not overly oily, so you won't feel bloated after eating so many flour...

Sweet potato pan mee - clear soup, we ordered this due to our greediness to try out on their variety of pan mee. Turned out to be this is the best. I guess the anchovies based stock is the main trick to the sweet soup. And the mee were so soft, hmm...you can just smell the sweet potato in the mee. Served with minced meat and greens, and fried anchovies separately, this deem to be a simple yet the best one...


Some side dishes to go with your pan mee - yong tau fo chili and brinjal which were hidden under the fried foo chook.

Beside pan mee, they served nasi lemak too which we ordered for the kids to eat with the fried wantan.

Unless you are a local here or else finding this were not easy and thanks to hubby which has a good direction which lead us here. Located at village of Seri Kembangan, this place is just somewhere near to their market. Or you'll know you are already there, when you see this signboard. As this signboard is standing right in front of their store.

Well, if you really plan to give this place a visit, make sure you give them a call as their rest day is not fixed. Taukesoh says she will rest whenever she is tired...

A Wet Thai Food Cafe

It's been kinda a long time I haven't meet up with my ex HP mates, the last time were at Tak Fook hunting for crabby...and with Jessey were at Pasta de Gohan. Well, for this time Thai food, most of them couldn't make it and we just end up with 4. But hey, we still need to eat, rite? So we still carry on with the makan with the most loyal eva member Jessey and Hon Nyan. Jenny joins as well this time.

A Wet Thai Food Cafe were located at busiest place ever at Taman Cheras aka Taman Yulek.Have passes few times seeing it packed with lots of patrons. Was thinking is should be quite nice. And finally I have a chance to try it out last Saturday, thanks to my makan geng...




It's a plain water but there was a very strong fragrance of pandan leaves smell...it's only RM0.50 and often refilled by the staff there...


Seafood tomyum. Jenny was shaking her head when she first sipped the soup. And Jessey were wondering is it not tasty...end up not, Jenny say its superb!!Haha...It's still not the best I had but it's already better than alot I have tasted. It's spicy, sourish but not too spicy which I like or else you can't taste anything else when it's too spicy. And in the soup, there's alot of fresh prawn, squid, oyster mushroom and tomatoes which I love to eat...


Green curry, another dish which has win our heart, recommended by the staff there. You can pick your meat to be either pork or chicken.


Thai BBQ Salt Baked Fish. Did you see that? They have deskinned the fish for you and you can just straight eat the meat...Its was such a good service. Even though, its BBQ but the fish meat were not overly burnt. It's was just right with the Thai sauce for dipping, I'm just falling in love with it...


For some greens, we have choose this Fried French Bean shoots which cooked together with some salted fish. Taste just nice as the french bean were so crunchy....


How can we don't have dessert, rite? ABC, Cendol and Water Chestnut were basically all shaved ice...just with different topping


For those who had yet to try but wanted to, I will say you won't be regretted trying this. Heard from the boss, they are opening one more outlet in Puchong but I'm not sure where it is...

p/s: to my makan geng that didn't come, you miss something nice lo...

lapis sandwich+juice

Joveen were craving for fruit juice that day, a healthier drink for health I think...So the only choice is lapis which is a few steps from our office.

cosy little cafe...

with same colourful wall paper...

Fruit juice @ RM5.50, was thinking was that a lil pricy? Ermm, unless it's purely 100% juice with no water added, then it's worth the price...

Or, well should I say it this way?
RM5.50 - a cup of fruit juice
RM10 - sandwhich + soft drink
RM11 - steamboat + soft drink
RM13 - sandwhich + fruit juice
RM14 - steamboat + fruit juice

And in the end, all of us have choose for the last one.Have you ever have steamboat for lunch during working day? I have to say this is my first time...

Choices of soup - clear soup or tom yum with everyone having their individually pot...talking about hygiene...

A box of varities - similar to those we can get from the normal steamboat session. Just that it's in a box...

Vege, straw mushroom, cabbage, carrot, baby corn, tofu, varities of fishcake and fishball, prawn, chicken meat, egg, mee hoon...

The whole eating experience here make me think that steamboat has become a fast food as well, hahaha...anything is possible

KOHINOOR, Capsquare

Normally, my encounter with Indian food were just either at mamak the most or at banana leaf...And this shall the first time trying out Indian food at a posh place - KOHINOOR @ Capsquare, thanks Liew for the recommendation.

KOHINOOR was awarded by Malaysia Tatler as Best Restaurant - 2006

The place to go for fine dining Indian cuisine...

Not so familiar with Indian food, plus the menu with the direct Indian translation has made it even more difficult for us. Thus, we just let them to recommend us on the dishes...

We start with some pappadam lookalike, dipped with some cold sauce

A colorful array of our Indian dishes. But frankly I really don't know what's the name of all this dishes. But I what I can tell you is the red curry is cooked together with chicken meat. While the greeny stuff is cooked with some dice tofu. And lastly, the dhal color sort of dish is cooked with fish meat.

Still left with so much gravy, you can dipped it together with the Onion Naan which taste good...taste like a lil fried bread but less oily than roti canai...

Overall, the food is here were not really that spicy and its flavorful enough. I wonder it the spices are flown from India, as it's look and taste differently from those Indian food I used to have... A great place if you would like to try for Indian fine dining
