Curry Chee Cheong Fun @ Golden KimWah, Damansara Kim PJ

I've been eating curry chee cheong fun from this stall for the longest time and finally get around to blogging about it.  This is seriously one of the best curry chee cheong fun I've tasted in Klang Valley - however do note, that the Yong Tow Foo here are priced slightly higher than usual for a coffeeshop stall (ranging from RM0.80 sen-RM1) but for me, it's worth it as it's really good.  Why? I would pin it down to the curry gravy.  Let me tell you, I have a friend who's from Ipoh (who is now overseas) and each time she comes visiting, she would make sure I take her to this place as it's one of her favourite. With all that good chee cheong fun from Ipoh, this says something!  By the way, the special lam mee from this stall is something I eat now and then too 'cos I love the sambal chilli that comes with it! However, the curry chee cheong fun with the additional yong tow foo win hands down! Check it out (available from morning till 2 plus pm)!

Note : This is also the same coffeeshop where I go for my fave siew yoke (roast pork), Yik Kee - during evening from 4.30 pm onwards.  For lunch, you can get the same yummylicious siew yoke from Sun Yin Loong coffeeshop at Sunway Mas Commercial Centre (Jalan PJU 1/3G, corner shop) also in Petaling Jaya as they have recently opened a stall there.

Sights & Restaurants Around MGM Grand, Vegas

After our meal at Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, we took a walk around MGM Grand to check out the place.  Here are some photos I took of the hotel and the interesting looking restaurants.  The whole place (the hotel and just about everywhere and everything else in Las Vegas!) is just filled with colours and I had a great time wandering around :o)

Friday Quick Bites - Kissaten @ Jaya One, Petaling Jaya


Kissaten @ Jaya One
It's time once again for another Friday Quick Bites post! I like the simplicity and the clean look of Kissaten and enjoy dining here. It's one of those places where you still have the bliss of enjoying one's meal amidst the pleasant ambiance and yet don't have to speak in hush tones, you know what I mean?

While much has been said about their Char Siew Pizza, my highlight is on something else. I am a creature of habit sometimes when it comes to ordering the same dish when I dine at the same place. But only for certain restaurants ... while at other times I might feel adventurous and try something new! However for Kissaten, I'm the former - when I come here, I end up ordering Teriyaki Chicken Onsen Tamago all the time.

"Kolok Mee" In Town


It was a really busy week and over the weekend, there was a visitor in town ... who hails from Miri, Sarawak.  We had a great time catching up and his visit had reminded me about some pics I had taken of Kolok Mee.  While I have not been to Sarawak since 2007 (was in Kuching for the Rainforest Music Festival), I was fortunate enough to be one of the recipients of some packed and air flown Kolok Mee from Miri.

*pics taken with Sony Ericsson W995
Packed & air flown Kolok Mee!
This was great potent stuff ... with added oil from the char siew "BBQ pork" (thus the red colour looking noodles) and having marinated in all that saucy goodness overnight, the Kolok Mee tasted heavenly. The char siew were mediocre stuff though.  However, I do believe that the Kolok Mee from Miri tasted even better than the ones I had in Kuching.  I am sure someone definitely agrees with me. You know who you are, don't you? ;o)

Kolok Mee from Miri
Well, apart from it being my turn to visit you over in Miri - it's also the Kolok Mee that's drawing me there.  Soon, one day soon, I'll meet you (yes, you...and the Kolok Mee, hahaha) on your home turf :o)

Till then....Take care & I'll see you soon,

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill, Las Vegas

During my two month stay in San Francisco, I actually had two mini vacations in between - one to Vegas and the other to Canada (Toronto, Ottawa, Ontario, Montreal & Quebec).  I've finally completed blogging on San Francisco ... I will now move on to Las Vegas, Nevada :o).  It was a short and enjoyable 3 day/2 night stay at MGM Grand.  When we arrive during late lunch hour - we headed off to look for food and ended up in Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill.

With warm, inviting lights and situated out in an open area, the setting was cozy and it had a garden feel with lit panels of roses as the backdrop.  Coupled with excellent service, this was great place that we started off with.

Hitting Lot 10 Hutong On An Empty Stomach - Pt Two (Final)


Hahaha...some folks asked whether I ate up the whole of Hutong since I posted Part One. As much as I would like to, I couldn't possibly accomplish such a feat - even after I ate at Hutong over several occasions. So, let's continue with the other food I've tried ...

Hitting Lot 10 Hutong On An Empty Stomach - Pt One


By now much has been said about Lot 10 Hutong, the "swankier" and "pricier" food court where one can find the best of the best hawker fare which were handpicked by Tan Sri Francis Yeoh personally (from our home ground and even Singapore).  Does it live up to its hype? Yes and No.  Some of the fare here were mediocre while some did deliver albeit one can get the real version out on the streets at a lower price.  Of course, there's nothing like having the choice of so many "legen-dary" (been watching "How I Met Your Mother" too much! Hahaha..) street fare made available in a clean, comfortable air-conditioned environment and possibly rodent free too :p
It's a good place to bring your foreign friends to when they visit you as it's really like a one-stop center for famous food fare.  Just make sure you come here famished in preparation of all the various foods you would want to try ... believe me, it's a rather difficult task to choose with the sight and smell of food permeating the air.  Several stalls were either closed or no longer in business when I went there last.  I wonder if any have closed since then.  I must say, my first trip (I've been here several times) to Lot 10 Hutong was lovely not only as it was my first time eating there but because I met up with Ilene too :o).  Where to next Ilene?  Come on, Ilene ...

Eating Malacca In Half A Day

What does one do if one is given a day in Malacca, well half a day more like it? Why, eat of course! Hahaha....So, the weekend is creeping up soon, and I love short weekend trips, impromptu ... throw caution to the wind, jump into the car and drive away towards the horizon. Oh well, at least towards Malacca's horizon for this post :o)

So what did we do? With limited time, we headed for the usual spots ...

Hoe Kee Chicken Rice
4, Jalan Hang Jebat (Jonker St)
7.30am-4pm, closes last Wednesday of the month

Somewhere already familiar to me (blogged one of my previous visits HERE), we sat down and put in our usual orders and in a jiffy, the food arrived.
Hoe Kee Rice Balls
Eating rice balls more for the sake of novelty as I do find it a tad mushy for me. However, it's still tasty.
