This is about my makan-makan for the last 2 weeks or so. Too much eating out, I tell you. I should really make an effort to start food prepping again. How many times have I said that?
Who knows it might happen next week heh..heh...
Next question. Who loves paru? I am a big fan of paru (lungs) and I tried the one at Chef Omar as an add-on with the nasi lemak.
I had the nasi lemak with ayam masak merah. Without a doubt it was very good. The paru is cooked berempah style but I prefer the berlada type. So this paru is not for me.
Later on I tried their Beef Noodle Soup. It was not what I had hoped for. The broth was lacking in the robust beefiness that I would expect and it was also short on aromatic spices. Maybe I went on a wrong day. The broth could use more seasoning and that's where the dry chili dip comes in. It is salty and spicy and helped flavor the beef noodles.
Today I returned for the nasi lemak (I had actually ordered nasi kerabu but the girl gave me nasi lemak) with beef rendang. Oh yes, it was so good! I also got a complimentary dessert (just like in previous visits). This time the dessert was durian flavored. Conclusion - stick to their forte which is nasi kerabu and nasi lemak.
I went to Sopoong on Thursday because I was craving for Dakgalbi. I ordered the canned Korean drink (this time pear juice, with pulp) because I noted that the Korean canned drinks are not that sweet.
Unfortunately, the Dakgalbi was not as good as before. It was too watery and lacked the flavors I have come to love. I wish they would be consistent on food quality.
And then I craved for Vietnamese and decided to revisit Pho Vietz to eat their pho just to compare with my other Vietnamese favorite. For pho, my preference is Pho Real's.
I also revisited Qing He Gu for the set lunches. They are doing brisk business at lunch time which is a good sign.
Many people come in groups for the BBQ or lunch sets. The table next to me had a partition because half of the table is not to be occupied.
On my first visit I had the Kimchi Jigae set. I just want to taste and see how the kimchi jigae at restaurants compare to the one I cooked at home.
The banchan served is still as generous as before. I found the kimchi jigae very tasty - sourish and savory. There were chunks of pork in the stew. Needless to say, I was stuffed and I skipped dinner.
A few days later I returned to try the Sundubu Jigae. This one contains seafood - one prawn and a few small clams.
Oohh!!! It was so good! I really loved this Sundubu Jigae. Perhaps I should attempt to cook this at home too.
Well, I have been enjoying my own Kimchi Jigae at home too and I think I might be addicted to it hah..hah...
