I'm back!! ;)
Have been assigned to the Seremban Hospital for a week of tiring attachment. Shut in the wards for consecutive days with busy doctors, occupied nurses and ill patients, you'll need good immune systems! ;P The experience was no doubt incredible, despite stressing out initially while reading the doctor's illegible handwriting, stuffy environment and standing all day! The people there was great, but I'm glad I'm back again ;P
May Keng has already built quite an excellent state of prominence with their specialty of Lam Mee. Nestled in Pudu, it has extended further to other areas to draw even more different customers in and I'm pretty confident most of you already know about this place.
The thick gravy or broth smothering each strands of noodles viscously was just alluring. Still living up to their standard, we can now enjoy their fares at a closer distance from my place!!
Its branch in Seri Kembangan has really good business. On and off, we drop by for a satisfying lunch ;P
RM 5 for a plate for big portioned lam mee is worthy;)
Another star of the restaurant is the Curry Noodles. And again, thick and aromatic curry broth with adequate ingredients that'll instill and bring out the 'kick'! Also priced at RM5.
Not getting enough? You can always go for their fishballs, dumplings or even beancurd with fish paste fillings. Just as good :)
Have the urge to rush over to try out these at May Keng's?
Count me in!!

I'm back!! ;)
I couldn't agree more with her....
She is right.
Who said fancying Japanese fare is an expensive intake pursuit?
Enjoying delicious Japanese meals economically is something you can definitely do now. You can go easy on your pockets, I could say! :)
The first time I hung out at this open-concept area of Sushi Zen was months ago with AiWei. What's the food like? "You can bet on it!"
Her order of Hokkai Chirashi Don turned out quite appealing. Hokkaido seafood (scallop slices, salmon slices, salmon roe) on sushi rice for RM15.90. Plus the ingredients were unquestionably fresh :)
Tenjyu for me was a whopping treat as the portion's big and... great! Also priced at RM15.90, you'll get to savour piping hot assorted tempuras arranged gorgeously on rice with drizzles of tasty sauce to add moistness and flavour.
An order of Chawanmushi was rather regular, but we just love having hot smooth egg custards everytime. Priced at RM4.90.
Am I unpretentious?
I am once again suffering from a compulsive disorder due to excessive retail therapy after the exam period... Side effects? Penniless... ;P
But still, I couldn't help refraining myself from a Japanese lunch with dear Chris. Macam mana?
Sushi Zen's on our list. Problems solved :)
We had Tenjyu again, as he have not tried this delicious preparation. Made up of assorted tempura : fresh prawns, brinjal, ladies finger and sweet potatoes! ;)
Yakiniku Jyu, which is Grilled Beef on Rice, also at RM15.90 has a pungent aroma of onion and the meat tasted so good especially with rice. Very filling!
For only RM4.90 the Ebiten Ebikko Maki (Prawn Tempura Roll) is yours! From the first bite till the last, all you can say is 'yummy!' An utter pleasure :)
Another steal: Salmon Sashimi for only RM7.50 (7 thick, fat and fresh slices!!) *after 50% discounts*
In conjunction with the A Journey of Taste that the F & B outlets at The Gardens were participating from 15 Mac till 15 April, we get to enjoy discounts and some buy 1 free 1 deals from involved outlets.

Reviews on their GlenMarie outlet:
Laid my thoughts on having a Korean meal for quite some time and it happened that mom suggested that all of us should give this place a go. Nak Won, it was named, sited at Taman Desa. “Korean Traditional Cuisine & BBQ”….. written on its brochure with many delicious depictions of the variety and colourful dishes.
I’m even more delighted to try as I'm kinda keen on Korean BBQ.
What are exceptional about eating out at a Korean restaurant are the side dishes that’ll serve upon you. Lots and lots of them for you to find relish in :)
From preserved and pickled cabbages such as kimchis to mushrooms and eggs, these multiple appetizers sure did a good job boosting our cravings for the barbecued food.
Garden-fresh greenery to wrap up the side dishes.
Different types of flavour enhancing mediators: the sauces :)
Let’s get the charcoal stove all warmed up and ready to grill! And the best part was, you wouldn’t have to move a muscle. The staffs here will do all the grilling process and we’re just assigned the eating procedure :)
3 ply Pork Belly Barbeque. The meats were easy to cut and chew. What more could you say when the meat are char-grilled? Aromatic! RM23 per pax.
Unagi Barbeque. The eel was marinated earlier and when heated and grilled, the thick sauce drizzling over the meat created the ‘it’ factor :) Priced at RM40 per pax.
Our favourite and they finished fast! The Marinated Boneless Rib Barbeque was the most scrumptious one. The marinated beef ribs were so juicy and tender. Flavoursome and wholesome when eaten with the onion. Thumbs up! Priced at RM49 per pax.
Cuttlefish Barbeque with Korean Sauce was another chewy item to savour. This was priced at RM35 per pax.
Mixed Rice with Assorted Vegetables served in Hot Stone Bowl was another wholesome preparation. A healthy portion to be shared among ourselves with great flavours and it was presented beautifully. Despite it being all vege, it was yummy! Compliments to the chef! Priced at RM15.
We also had the Dumpling Soup for RM18. Containing garlic chives and pork, these were cooked in a throat-soothing broth!
The Seafood Pancake was priced at RM25. It’s an omelette containing prawns, crabsticks and garlic chives. Kinda crispy on the outer layer and at the same time, a lil’ spongy inside.
Apart from the side dishes that were complimentary, these were too!
Steamed Egg in Hot Stone Pot (we had 2)
With resemblance from a chawanmushi, this was a bigger serving. The eggs were again, silky smooth and laid down with ingredients that fit this preparation. Very delicate.
Dessert: I’m not sure what it’s called, but it tasted like Bali juice to me :P
The total bill came up to about RM250 for 7 persons and considering the food and complimentary dishes they offer, it’s worth it!
Check this place out with no regrets! ;P
