"Remember to Remember"

Hoi Tin @ Serdang, Seri Kembangan

I am half Hakka but when it comes to the topics on Hakka dishes, it doesn't ring the bell.

Well, at least I know about Hakka Pun Choy. Not good enough eh?

As most of you might know, Serdang area is majorly populated by Hakka inhabitants. Thus, it is almost impossible that you could not find any Hakka dishes around.

Hoi Tin, like one of the well known Chinese restaurants in Serdang; Hee Lai Ton that also cater for both dine in & wedding sessions, has been operating for quiet some years in this town.

Recently, Hoi Tin has shifted near to Equine Park & was refurnished into a better looking dining spot. Lucky me, as it is much nearer for me to pay 'em a visit to check out some of their well-known Hakka dishes.

Stir fry Brinjal with garlic & XO sauce
very flavoursome & a perfect dish to go with your rice. I enjoyed this most.


Tung Sing @ Kajang Town

I remembered well my English cousin from London once asked me when we brought her out for breakfast during her visit to Malaysia:

"Why do you guys have noodles like, ALL the time?" 
"It's SO HEAVY for breakfast!"
"I still love my cereals & milk"

Come to think of it, it's really unusual for us, not to have a bowl of piping hot noodles to start off our day right?

When dad exclaimed to us one day that he had the BEST TOAST in town, we were excited to check out its whereabouts.

Spotted: Located at Kajang Town, this little coffee shop tucked in at the heart of the town at one of the old shoplots have been operating for a long time even during Chris's toddling times, where his parents would bring him over for breakfast. It's kinda hard to find an authentic Chinese coffee house in KL or Klang valley nowadays don't you agree?



Half-boiled Kampung Eggs (perfectly done)

Umai-ya @ IOI Boulevard, Puchong Jaya

Oh yes, we have heard lots about Umai-ya, especially their great buffet deals and all. But sometimes, thinking of traveling over to Uptown or Damansara for it made us lazy and we'll end up at Zanmai or something for some moderately priced Japanese spread. Xenri made me smile & we still adore Kampachi to the max but it could hurt Chris's wallet sometimes.

Umai-ya finally opened its doors at Puchong, specifically nestled at IOI Boulevard. So much nearer, and with the great voucher deal we have at hand, we gave no excuse this time.
Like any other Japanese restaurant, Umai-ya was layed down with wooden floors, some tatami seats and also a few VIP private rooms. We were seated at the private room and I'm pretty glad we do, as the place was loaded with patrons during our visit for dinner, bustling staffs and customers tittle-tattling noisily.



 What great deal we enjoyed?
Eat up to RM400 (on food only) and get RM200 off! That's a steal, seriously.
Beverages and taxes not included.

And we were stuffed with:

Twin Tower Maki ( 6 pcs) - RM14



Brought up 2 Share just turned 3!

Hope to share more with you guys with our mighty appetite ;P

Fresh Unique Seafood 23 @ PJ

It was during the end of CNY when we decided to go for another feast at a seafood restaurant, well known for their fresh seafood; displayed at their aquarium staircases. Another issue that will rise for certainly would be the wallet exhausting agenda. Dining here would be pricey.


It's such a bad idea taking a set dinner and we would advise you not to, seriously.

Here's our RM888++ prosperity set:


Salmon Fish Yee Sang with Pear


Braised Shark's Fin Soup with Crab Meat (lotsa shark's fin!)


The Smokehouse @ Jalan Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru

I used to frequent Bangsar’s Telawi neighbourhood. And when we do, we would end up concealing ourselves with high tea or cafes without noticing the newcomer in town; or we would rather called it the hidden gem nestled at Jalan Telawi 3.

If you plan to chill out in a homely English themed eatery, try the Smokehouse, an outlet that offers a mixture of Western, especially English & Thai cusine that will surely tantalize your tastebuds. Smokehouse serves a medley of delicious dishes throughout the day, from breakfast through to dinner! We were lucky enough to enjoy a hearty lunch cum lavish high tea with compliments from the manager, Dennis with our besties, AiWei & KampungboyCitygal.
Used to operate at the KL city centre, the Smokehouse is now moved to Bangsar Baru. Be sure to visit for a homely atmosphere.
Another praise: Their Thai chefs were previously with Rama V!

#1 Ambiance
Loving the aristocratic elements of this outlet while bringing out the vintage sentiment of the English epoch. Old school table and chairs, fireplace and decorative basics like the classic telephone & record player were some atmosphere enhancers.


Crystal Jade Kitchen 翡翠小厨 @ Pavilion, KL

If it's Chinese food you're looking for while shopping at Pavilion, you should probably think of checking out Crystal Jade Kitchen located and easily spotted around the food quarters at Level 1 of the mall. This eatery has made quite a reputation and I'm pretty sure most of you have dined in their different concepts restaurants such as C-Jade Express or their Crystal Jade La Mian Xiao Long Bao restaurant. As for me, I'm such a thrifty person who is very unwilling to spend more than ten bucks on a plate of wanton noodles (maybe once in a blue moon), but rather exhaust my limited capital on dim sums. I did so... still, here at Crystal Jade this time. 

We dined in here right before charging towards Snowflake for desserts.

Baked BBQ Pork Pastry (Char Siew So) - RM7.50
Crispy and hot outer skin with tasty char siew fillings.


Rice Roll woth Shrimp Sauce - RM8.80
Love this as it was special, I rarely tasted my chee cheung fun with flavoursome shrimp sauce.


Snowflake Taiwanese Dessert Secrets 雪花栈 @ Pavilion, KL

I have heard so much about Snowflake but somehow will tend to 'forget' to pay this Taiwanese dessert house a visit every time when we're loitering around Pavilion.

Most of the time, Chris and I would have had ended up having tea time at the Loaf.


I was rescued from food boredom when my gals and I were lunching out and they brought me over to Snowflakes; a branch from SS15, managed by a Taiwanese couple sharing with us, the best of Taiwan desserts.

A cute gadget you would remember. The Beeping UFO would blink, noise out and vibrate alerting you that your order's ready!


Snowflake Bestseller - RM6.50
A huge bowl brimmed with grass jelly, grass jelly ice , taro balls and creamer. This chilling dessert that has the QQ texture with thirst quenching properties has my vote & I'll definitely return for more.


Drench in the creamer :)


Chris, I know where we could stop over now while we're at Pavilion Mall!

Uncle Chilli's @ PJ Hilton

Hiding my face with my tiny hands while telling this:

Don't laugh at me.
I have not been to PJ Hilton.
Hold your laughter.
I've not been to Uncle Chilli's.
And I don't even know it was establish for quite sometime. Shoot!

The juicy bits: It has been refurbished into a modern retro hang-out venue merging exclusive dining and bar functions. Composing of private dining areas, bar, dance floor and also cigar lounge, patrons get to enjoy the best of both worlds. The place where u belong; quoted Uncle Chilli's.

Uncle Chilli's @ PJ Hilton


It was a great pleasure when Fratmustard, Lisa and the Qguides invited us over to sample their new dinner menu. Had fun dining with these friendly people, and also KampungboyCitygal & PureGlutton. Thanks to Lyrical Lemongrass too :)

This is an introductory offer to their new ala carte menu. Order 3 items and get the lower priced item for free! This offer is valid until 15 March 2010 (available from Monday till Saturday - dinner only. FYI, this is only applicable for a maximum party of ten diners.

Nippy Noodle Restaurant @ Kuchai Lama Entrepreneurs Park


It was during the midst of CNY when we hang out together again for dinner after work. The CNY holiday made me a slacker which literally equated me to a bigger eater. Nothing beats a good meal together after pouring ourselves with frets from work, and we chose over Kuchai Lama, another food hub we have yet to spend time on though its nearer for us & we always ended up in PJ.
Now's the time to look for the traditional Bamboo Noodles! Since reading Joe's post on Nippy, both its name and noodles were fastened in my memory.
