Salted Egg Crab Seaweed Tempura

One day, I was out of the office and when I came back, I saw this packet of snack sitting on my desk. Apparently, my brother came by and he dropped off this very tempting something for me.

I Felt Cheated. Was I?

Many months ago while running errands, I spotted a lady selling chung (meat dumplings) outside a chap fan shop a few doors away from Public Bank.

A Very Quiet Evening

It was one of those Saturday evenings where my partner and I had no idea where to go for dinner. Dinner at the mall was not ideal as most of the restaurants would be packed (even the lousy ones hah..hah...)

Hainan Joy Cafe

It was Sunday and lunch is usually chap fan at Restoran 134@Taman Megah. But guess what? My lahling suggested that we try something different. Oh?

When You're Hungry And He's Not

It was that Saturday when I was having a blast (hah..hah..) at the Thailand Food Fair and since I was packing food for myself, I got something from Salad Atelier for my partner.

Dah Makan? Dah!

You know, I have never tried food delivery (except for Pizza Hut and Dominos in the very distant past). Not even Grabfood. Not even Foodpanda

I Don't Enjoy This Anymore

One evening (during Ramadan) I was craving for McDonald's burger. Yup, I get this type of cravings every now and then.

Mak-Kimchi : My First Attempt

hah...hah.. Suddenly I made kimchi. Proper kimchi. Not the shortcut version which I actually found very delicious. Even then, this version, called Mak-Kimchi is the simpler of the traditional ones because the napa cabbage is cut into small pieces.

I Love to Eat Many Bowls of Food

Ever since my first visit to Thai Boy Street Food , I returned a few times to try other items on the menu. What I like about this place is that I can eat up to 5 bowls of food hee...hee...

Thailand Food Fair@The Starling

Last week, there was a Thailand Food Fair at The Starling. Since I love Thai food, I went over to kepoh-kepoh over two days, Friday and Saturday. Yup those two days are my happy days.

My Dosirak

I have been looking for more lunch box ideas to inspire me to pack my own lunches to office. Honestly, sometimes I am a bit lazy to spend a few hours on Sunday to food prep.

Beefy Thai Noodles@Rod Dee Ded

There is this new Thai restaurant with a whimsical sounding name - Rod Dee Ded, which opened in recent months in Damansara Uptown. This restaurant prides itself with serving premium Thai beef noodles and hot pot.

Korean Inspired Marinated Kale

There was a time when I was kale crazy and then I don't know what happened and I did not eat kale after that. 

Wednesday, 24 July 2019

My Bodo Bodo Lunches

For the past two weeks, I brought my own lunch prep to work. Well, not for all 5 days lah. Max I only do for 4 days. It's not planned but depends on how much food I happen to churn out hah...hah...

Multigrain Rice

The first time I saw purple colored rice was on the Nene Chicken menu for Dosirak. I was quite curious why the rice was purple.

Bad Lunch Good Teatime Treat

I was walking around the neighborhood when I realized that Frisson Cafe is no more. Oh dear. But I wasn't really surprised. Or sad.

Friday, 19 July 2019

Taco Salad

As I have mentioned in this post, I found a delicious salad which is Taco Salad. I guess it's called a Taco Salad because the ingredients used are what usually goes into a taco

Soyffle Pancakes for Dinner

After trying the souffle pancakes at Hotcake and then reading about Soyffle Pancakes at Soylab, I simply had to give Soylab@Damansara Uptown a go.

Delicious Dakgalbi at Sopoong

I have been to Sopoong@The Starling once in 2017 and again in 2018. On both visits, I found the food average which explains why I returned only once a year.

Catalina Salad Dressing

You know, I got tired of eating salad. Really. I stopped making and eating salads. It was getting boring with the same old French dressing that I usually use. The vegetables were getting boring too.

Fridays and Saturdays Are Happy Days!

Friday being the end of the work week is obviously a happy day. Saturday, lagi happy, right?

Salad Salad Salad

I used to go to Salad Atelier@The Starling quite often and after a while I got tired of salads. I usually don't choose from the menu but I customize my salads from the salad order form. These are from my visits in the past.

My Poor Ah Boy

One morning, I opened my door and was greeted by my two part time pets. mew...mew....mew.... I take it that they were hungry and were asking for food.

Souffle Pancakes@Hotcake Damansara Uptown

After an uninspiring lunch which left me unsatisfied, I decided to check out this new souffle pancake place. Nothing like dessert for a pick me up, eh?

Begedil : To Fry or Not To Fry?

Of course begedil (deep fried potato patties) are fried. I was just pondering if I should fry or steam the potatoes before making the begedil? Is there any difference in taste?

A Lacklustre Big Breakfast

I had overnight oats at lunch time (technically my breakfast) and obviously that was not enough to sustain me through the afternoon. So I envisioned a satisfying and robust late lunch but I had no idea where to go or what to eat.

Friday, 5 July 2019

Last Sunday

As usual my partner and I went for our grocery run at Aeon. That's our routine. Wake up. Eat breakfast (him, not me). Then it's off to Aeon. After that, lunch.

Are You Korean? So I Made Kimchi

The other day while I was placing my order at Fujisawa@The Starling, the cashier finally plucked up enough courage to ask me "Are you Korean?". I get that a lot.

Nutella Swirl Cheesecake

Just before Chinese New Year, I stocked up on a particular brand of cream cheese that was on special offer. I usually buy Philadelphia Cream Cheese (which has become very, very expensive) and Tatura (the more affordable of the two).

Can You Own Too Many Glass Containers?

Not too long ago Kris shared her container collection and then she shared her food prep which she said she learnt from me. I am so flatered hee..hee...hee....

Economy Fried Meehoon

One Sunday, I made economy fried meehoon, also known as meehoon kosong. You guys know what is economy fried meehoon but to the uninitiated, that's meehoon (vermicelli) fried with the barest of ingredients.

Tables of Joy@Damansara Uptown

One of the restaurants that I have passed by many times while doing my errands is Tables of Joy. This family run restaurant is situated along the same row as Texas Chicken

Don't Worry. Auntie Can Eat.

You know, I still eat a lot. But not as much as I used to. But by normal standards, I am still a big eater.

Senya Shokdou@Istean Eat Paradise 1 Utama

It was one of the Friday evenings when we could not secure a seat at Chili's due to the buka puasa (breaking fast) crowd. So we made our way to Isetan Eat Paradise.

Pumpkin Gula Melaka Cheesecake

Remember my burnt pumpkin kueh? Well, the first batch of the tasteless pumpkin puree went into this cheesecake. Although overall I was happy with this cheesecake, what was missing was the natural creamy sweetness of pumpkin.

Friday, 21 June 2019

Esquire Kitchen@1 Utama

A long time ago, Esquire Kitchen@Atria Damansara Jaya was a favorite dinner venue for my partner and I. We loved the food and every time we visited, we would have 4 bowls of rice each. Yes, 4 bowls of rice each hah...hah....

My Partner's Meat Patties

One day my partner made meat patties. "Come, come, try! Nice or not?". His meat patties were nicely browned and smelled really good. And it tasted pretty good too.

Korean Eggplant Banchan

This is another recipe that I tried from Maangchi and I loved it! Eggplant (or brinjal) is one of my favorite vegetables. There is one eggplant dish that I love at Chinese restaurants. I don't know what it is called. It is fried with minced pork.

My El Cheapo Lunch

When I went to Mama Dessert I noted that they sold economy noodles. So I decided to swing by and have a cheaper lunch heh...heh...

Kueh Bakar Terbakar : My Burnt (And Tasteless) Bingka Labu

A few weeks ago, I was gifted with half a big ass pumpkin. As you all know, big isn't always better. I have eaten big tasteless cucumber and big tasteless tomatoes.

Begedil Tauhu Goreng

You know, I had no idea of the existence of Begedil Tauhu until Kris blogged about it. Where have I been? It has been years since I visited a Ramadan bazaar for the very reason that there is no longer one at Damansara Uptown. The last  Ramadan bazaar at Damansara Uptown was way back in 1990!

Thai Boy Street Food@Damansara Uptown

A few weeks ago, I was caught in the rain. I was trying to deliver some documents to an office nearby when it suddenly poured cats and dogs.

Spicy Cucumber Banchan

The other day while watching some videos on Youtube, I was reminded of Maangchi when one of her videos popped up on my watch list. Hey! I love this Korean lady and there was a time when I tried her fried chicken but that was as far as I went. Fried chicken and only fried chicken.

These Old Bones Can't Sit Japanese Style

I am back! Sooner than expected. It was getting boring. These days, I don't enjoy time off very much. Too many things spinning in my head I guess. 

Saturday, 1 June 2019

Hangry and Pissed Off

This is a bad Saturday. But it started out good on Friday (except the Godzilla movie. Bleagh). I have been reading and craving about Ipoh food on Claire's and Nancy's blog. So if I could experience Ipoh food in my neighborhood, why not, eh?

Oh Mama! : Mamalee@Damansara Uptown

Sometimes, it takes someone not from Damansara Uptown to convince me to visit a restaurant in Damansara Uptown. Tsk!
