Champs

After reading PH's reviews about the fantastic food at the Champ's at the food court - A Foodie's Nest at Starling Mall, I brought my spouse to try the Chee Yok Fun (soup) with egg at MYR 17.50 nett. The broth is super rich just like how PH described it to be. The broth even has the taste of the much sought-after wok hei. It is so thick and rich that I can only stomach one tablespoon of it.

We also tried PH's other recommendation - the Wat Tan Hor from Champ's at MYR 18.50 nett. It has 3 big prawns which I like. My friend said that the noodles (Hor Fun) is not enough for her, the portion is too small. It is full of wok hei so many people would like it.

My other friend had the pork knuckle rice set (MYR 15.20 nett) from the Pin Qian Klang Bak Kut Teh stall next to Champ's which PH also reviewed. She likes the thick herbal broth. I tried one spoonful of the broth and find it to be very tasty with a strong Dang Gui (Angelica sinensis) taste which I also like.

Nett prices on the menus with no extra charges or taxes.

On On BKT no more

Seems like in the middle of this year (2018),  On On Bak Kut Teh at Taman Esplanade, Bukit Jalil has been replaced by Starry Coffee Shop. So far, I don't think I have eaten there yet as I always eat at Friendship Cafe which is very nearby.

Organic Mung Bean Biscuits

5 pieces in 1 packet for MYR 6.70 nett.

Not that sweet so I like it.

I bought this packet of Organic Mungbean biscuits from Medifoods, PJ. I like eating mung bean biscuits so I will most likely buy them when I see them if they are not too expensive. 

I have also bought a packet of organic mungbean biscuits from another brand from Organic Express, PJ at a much lower price of MYR 4.90 nett for 5 pieces previously and they are quite acceptable too.

Still tasty

Meraki food delivery again. I selected the fish option as usual for MYR 22 nett. They did not provide a separate container of dressing this time and my friends found the brown rice to be a little too dry without additional dressing but I am ok with it as I never use their extra dressing anyway. Fish cubes, baked potatoes (the darker coloured pieces in the photo above), brown rice, tomato and cucumber cubes.

WG Teow Chew Meng

This lunch is before 1 Sept 2018.

My friends shared this big pot of seafood Teow Chew congee at MYR 30 nett. 3 of us also ordered a portion of deep fried prawn paste and egg mix for sharing at MYR 12 nett. We thought we would be able to see individual pieces of prawns in it but no, the prawns are in paste form so I don't think we will order this item again.

 My bowl of fish slice noodles at MYR 15 nett. I select instant noodles as I have a weakness for them. :) Other options are mee hoon, hor fun, yellow mee and yee mee I think. Quite a decent bowl of fish slice noodles so I may have this again.

Teow Chew Meng at SS2, PJ, located at the other end of the same row of shops as Medifoods.

Total bill for 3 pax is MYR 57 nett.

WG Kechara Jaya One

Tuesday 9 October 2018 was "chor yat" (day 1 of the lunar month) and also the start of the Nine Emperor Gods Festival 2018 so my lunch group had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant that was almost fully occupied but we managed to get a table for 4 pax.

My friends' favourite mixed vegetable stir fry dish at MYR 15.80++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 18.33 nett). It has lotus root, macadamia nuts, ginkgo nuts, crunchy celery, baby corns, red capsicum, sugar snap peas, and carrot slices so the dish is tasty with the natural sweetness of the fresh vegetables.

Kung Po Hedgehog mushrooms (Hydnum repandum) - MYR 19.80++ (MYR 22.97 nett). The kung po gravy is very flavourful so people not used to light vegetarian food will like this very much.

Spinach Fried Rice - MYR 13.80++ (MYR 16 nett). There are pieces of "fake" luncheon meat cubes in the rice that taste exactly if not more tasty than real luncheon meat.

This Bak Kut Teh is from a set lunch which includes a bowl of plain white rice, a glass of tea and a small plate of fruit at MYR 11.90++ (MYR 13.80 nett). The soup is flavourful despite not having any meat in it. 

Papaya and tea - part of the Bak Kut Teh set meal. All 4 of us shared this set meal and all the above 3 dishes.

Total price for 4 pax is MYR 71.10 nett so it is MYR 17.80 nett per pax. I prefer light vegetarian dishes so I like the mixed vegetable dish the best and I would order dishes like that instead of the kung po dish.

Kechara Restaurant - New Age Vegetarian Cuisine - at Jaya One, PJ.

Please click on the above and below menu photos for a larger image. All the dishes recommended by the chef here are very flavourful so I don't think I will like them as I prefer lighter tasting dishes.

More flavourful dishes.

We ordered item 3009 and 3010 from the above menu and I like item 3010 more than 3009.

We also ordered 7001 from the menu above. My friends like the food here so we will very likely visit this restaurant again to share the dishes.

WG No mayo

Set Lunch at Medifoods again. This time I remembered to request for no mayonnaise on the shredded cabbages. Other dishes are slices of lotus stems and a medley of sauteed mushrooms.

As usual, the set lunch includes soup of the day and jicama slices as starter.

The price remains at MYR 12.74 nett for the set lunch. No SST so far.
