Day #2 (Thursday) went smoothly except that I had to rush something for my client and I almost had a heart attack with my food delivery pre-order. A bit about that later.
On my way back from buying chap fan, I saw this itsy bitsy little kitty.
And she has a black sibling, equally scrawny. Poor things. I wish I could give them a home but I already have my hands full with two adult cats.
Dinner I Grabfood a salad from my favorite La Jucieria. Now they have an outlet inside Jaya Grocer @ 1 Utama. My partner and I have visited twice already but I have yet to blog about that.
I sendiri added one avocado that I bought from Avocadian. Adding half an avocado on the Grabfood order would set me back RM8 (my whole avocado cost me RM7).

Friday (today day #3) I worked from home. Oh ya, a side story about my heart attack food order.
On Thursday I pre-ordered lunch via AirAsia Food after reading about Don by TSF on EatDrinkKL. My delivery was for Friday between 12:00 pm and 12:30 pm.
Then slightly past 1:00 pm I got a call from Mason of Don by TSF. He informed me that my food is ready but AirAsia was jam packed and can't deliver right now. Eh??? I was taken aback. Isn't my order for tomorrow? I terkejut badak I tell you.
Then he checked and ya...it was his mistake. But then since he already prepared the food, I was willing to accept delivery. Mistakes happen. And I did not want him to waste his effort and ingredients. To cut the long story short, he said it was not an issue and that my delivery will proceed Friday as instructed. Phew!
|They always give each other the evil eye.|
So Friday while I was sweeping the car porch, at 12:00 pm sharp a car arrived at my gate. Siapa tu? I saw a young lady at the driver's seat and I thought she was just passing by the area.
There was a note. I only ordered sides as I did not want to eat rice. As you can see, there is condensation on the cover of the bowl.
My orders clockwise from top right - Chicken Karaage, Don's Chili Tofu, Nam Yu Pork Belly and Soy Glazed Eggplant.
This is the Soy Glazed Eggplant. Boy! It was delicious! The enoki mushroom tempura had of course gone cold and hard. That is to be expected of food delivery but I am not complaining.
What is important to me is the taste. I already super love eggplant/brinjal and this one swept me off my feet. Next time I will order 2 portions.
The Don's Chili Tofu also made me very happy. It is soft tofu deep fried and doused with what tasted to me like sweet chili bean sauce.
Next up, proteins. This Chicken Karaage (my partner's favorite at Japanese restaurants but he wasn't home at the time. Less man more share!) was accompanied by a sweet onion aioli which was very pungent and robust.
The chicken is already good on its own but you know me, I love sauces/dips. Although the fried chicken was not crispy anymore, I still enjoyed it.
The Nam Yu Pork Belly had so much flavor. If you love nam yu fried pork, you will love this. It is served with a wedge of lime (that gave freshness and cut through the oil) and a sriracha mayo which I loved.
