Sea Park Dessert OUG

Lor Mai Fan (MYR 2.50 nett), Pork Noodle with lots of vege and herbs (MYR 7 nett) and 2 bowls of dessert (tong sui) at MYR 2.50 nett (bubur cha cha and barli ginkgo bean curd sheets). Total: MYR 14.50 nett for 2 pax and as we used a mobile app e-wallet to pay this bill, we were given 50 cents cashback.

From a Yam Cake poster on the wall, I noticed that this shop has two branches - a stall in Kedai Kopi Khoong, Sea Park, PJ and a stall in Hong Kopitiam, Desa Sri Hartamas. I realised that I have been to the branch in Sea Park a few times to buy their desserts.

Storefront in OUG

A closer look: It says "Sea Park Dessert Since 1969". I will be back to try the yam cake.

Uptown Hokkien Mee at PopCorn

My friend says that this Hokkien Mee at MYR 11.90 nett tastes better than the one in town that is more sweet than savoury because this one is savoury and has more wok hei with pork lard taste. 

We ordered two plates to be shared by 4 pax.

Stall 7 - Uptown Hokkien Mee at PopCorn Food Court, Midvalley Mall. I have been to their branch in Kuchai Lama but not to the original outlet in Damansara Uptown itself.

Mung Bean Mochi

Mid of this year, I went for a 2-days trip to Taipei and as usual I must stop by my favourite dessert shop which is 雙連圓仔湯 (Shuāng lián yuán zǐ tāng).

As with my previous trips, I bought a prepacked savoury snack with skin made from glutinous rice flour and Ramie Leaves (粗叶) which gives it the greenish hue but with different fillings.

Instead of shredded radish fillings like before, this time I chose mung bean fillings which I find to be coarse and on the dry side. After eating this, I prefer the previous shredded radish fillings.

I ordered 4 toppings (added red kidney beans) instead of 3 (taro, lotus seed, peanut)  so the price is TWD 110 instead of TWD 100 and requested for syrup to be omitted from the ice shavings. The taste is just as good as it was back in 2014.

Total price for 3 items: TWD 205 (about MYR 28.50 nett at an exchange rate of TWD100:MYR13.90 ) shared by 2 pax.

WG Cendol Nu Sentral

For cendol, I will always go to a branch of TeoChew Chendul or the still-can-be-considered-new food court at Four Seasons Place KL.

Surprisingly, this branch at Nu Sentral Mall does not charge 6% SST so the price is MYR 6.10 nett instead of MYR 6.50 nett. Unfortunately this mall is not in my usual shopping circuit so I seldom get to eat here.


All the items in the menu.

Please click on the above photo for a larger image to read the price of the dishes and also their names.

For the main meals, I have tried Assam Laksa, Pandan Nasi Lemak Rendang Chicken, Penang Prawn Mee and Penang Curry Mee and found them to be acceptable.

For the delightful snacks, after trying Chee Cheong Fun, Kuang Jiang, Pandan Chicken, Penang Fruit Rojak, and Sotong KangKung, I will order the Fruit Rojak again.

Please click on the above photo for a larger image.

For the ice desserts, I have only tried the original Chendul which is my favourite and the original ABC which I don't quite like.

As for the beverages, I have had the hot Cocoa drink once because at that time, I had to choose a drink since I ordered a set lunch of 1 noodle, 1 delight item and 1 drink for only MYR 18.90 nett back in Jan this year (2018). I felt that I could have done without the drink because I was just too full after eating the cendol and the main dish.

Salted Egg Yolk Fried Rice

After having lunch at Runners Cafe's branch in Paramount Garden, PJ, we visited the one at Bukit Jalil for their salted egg yolk soft shell crab that my friend recommended to us.

Instead of having it with pasta like my friend did, both of us chose to have the salted egg yolk soft shell crab with fried rice at MYR 19 nett for a standard portion. The rice is fried with salted egg yolk too so it has a fragrant creamy salted egg yolk taste which I like. I also like the texture of the rice which is soft. Surprisingly, I was indifferent to the soft shell crab. The salted egg yolk fried rice is enough for me.

Flat White at MYR9 nett to round up a good meal.

Total price for 2 pax is MYR 25.20 nett due to a 10% discount voucher which this eatery hands out to customers to keep them returning for more.

Siew Yuk Petai Bihun

Roasted Pork Belly Petai Stir Fried Bihun at MYR 20.75+ (6% SST = MYR 22 nett). Very flavourful dish. I like the petai. Portion is not enough for a big eater I believe.

Pomelo Salad with Bacon bits at MYR 20.75+ (6% SST = MYR 22 nett). The juicy pomelo was tasty. The bird's eye chili bits in the salad caused it to be very spicy. Next time, I will request for this dish to be non-spicy.

A cup of hot lemongrass tea at MYR 8.5+ (MYR 9 nett) and a glass of cold milk coffee at MYR 9.45+ (MYR 10 nett). The cold drink saved me from the spiciness of the pomelo salad.

Total price for 2 pax is MYR 63 nett which is about MYR 31.50 nett per pax.

Thai Hou Sek at Midvalley Mall. I have been here twice this year, in Jan and in April.

Madam Leow

We went back to Madam Leow eatery in SS2, PJ recently and ordered a bowl of kueh chap at MYR 9 nett. It has half a hard boiled egg, a few pieces of pork belly, intestines and very small bits of duck meat. I like the flat sheet but rolled up rice noodles as it has the fragrance of rice.

Two bowls of duck kway teow soup at MYR 6.50 nett each. It seems that there are more duck skins and fat than meat in the bowl but the taste is acceptable.

A large portion of Igor's penang char kway teow with duck egg at MYR 11 nett for sharing. This is definitely Penang style char kway teow as the kway teow is smoother and thinner than the one here. I wonder why call this dish, Igor's  CKT? Is there a person named Igor in Penang who cooks CKT for a living?

A bowl of barley ginkgo sweet dessert at MYR 4 nett and a glass of cold barley drink at MYR 2.20 nett.

Total price is MYR 39.20 nett for 4 pax.
