Bunch

My friend sent me this online article about this new food place called Bunch so we went there for lunch one day.

The place is smaller than what I imagined it to be.

The 5 kiosks operated by well-known eateries such as MyElephant and Owl Cafe have a limited menu with about 5 to 10 dishes only so we decide to eat else where. It also operates a cash free system where we have to download their payment app or buy a prepaid card from the centralised customer service counter. Customers can choose to get back the balance from the prepaid card at the same counter before they leave.

Dining area. The area upstairs is not ready yet but customers could walk up the stairs to take a look at the space. I am not sure whether we will be back for the food next time or not.

Isaac Toast half price

Isaac Toast at Midvalley / Gardens Mall is now open with a long queue.

Due to this 50% off promo from 15 to 21 June 2019. I did not join the queue because I don't feel like eating the items on the menu.

The menu on the wall.

Chicken Bacon Cheese Special - Ala Carte at MYR 13 and Combo Set (with either Tea or Americano Coffee) at MYR 16 which is adding MYR 3 to the Ala Carte price. Now only I know that there is Chicken Bacon. I thought Bacon needs to be made from a specific type of meat.

Other than chicken bacon, the choices are: Turkey Ham, Pizza, Potato Double Cheese, Tuna, Shrimp MVP. I wonder what does MVP stand for, what does it mean.

The price of the coffee and other drinks are almost similar to the price of coffee and drinks in nice trendy cafes so I definitely will not be buying drinks here. As for the promo, I don't think I will be in this mall until this weekend which means the promo will be over then so I won't be trying the food here at all.

Snitch again

My order: Pancakes to me but the name on the menu is Hotcakes - MYR 17+ (10% service charge = MYR 18.70 nett). The menu described the white topping as maple mascarpone but it tastes like lightly whipped unsalted butter to me.

A small jug of syrup. Toppings: strawberry compote and walnuts with pumpkin and sunflower seeds scattered around them.

The hot cakes are not sweet so they go well with the syrup. Easy to eat as the portion is not big but I ate just one piece and gave the other piece to my friends.

Huevos Rancheros (Spanish - it means rancher’s eggs in English) at MYR 21+ (MYR 23.10 nett). The two eggs have runny yolks which my friend does not like so she mixed them up into the gravy.

And it turned into this. The menu says "beef chorizo" so my friend was expecting to see sausage slices but instead there were two beef meatballs with chewy bits in them (could it be minced tendons?). The sauce tastes strongly of cumin.

Mee Rebus / Jawa at MYR 13+ (MYR 14.30 nett). I tried a bit of the sauce and could not get used to it because this sauce tastes like deep fried anchovies (ikan bilis) with spicy sweet coatings.

Curry Laksa at MYR 13+ (MYR 14.30 nett). We did read a review here that says this curry laksa is nothing to shout about but we still want to try it. As I have no high expectations for curry laksa, I am ok with it. The broth has not too much of coconut milk and is only a bit spicy.

The bowl is quite big too. There are two types of shrimp - two fresh ones and a few deep fried smaller ones.

This time I ordered a glass of cold cappuccino at MYR 12+ (MYR 13.20 nett) and drank from the glass directly because I do not like to use the metal straw provided by the eatery. The other 2 hot drinks are a pot of earl grey lavender tea and a pot of osmanthus sencha tea which tastes like peach tea with vanilla taste at MYR 10+ (MYR 11 nett) each.

Total bill for 4 pax is MYR 105.60 nett and my 3 friends declare that they will no longer eat here with me because they have had enough of this type of food since this is the 2nd time we were here in a span of two weeks as we were here the previous weekend too. Taste wise, the food is not as delicious as Wild Honey or Ra.Ft but is still decent enough. The pros are the price is more affordable and the location more accessible for me. Looks like I may need to eat here again on my own.

Snitch has been here (at the Gardens mall) for a few months now but they only held an official opening ceremony on 12 June 2019 so that is why there are so many bouquets of flowers outside the eatery.

Budu Sauce Fish Burger

I went back to MyBurgerLab, MyTown Mall to try the fish budu sauce burger as I said that I would during my previous visit there. The budu sauce is a bit spicy and goes well with the crispy fish patty which is made from mashed tilapia fish meat. I will be back to eat this fish burger again. They also sell chicken budu sauce burger but I think the budu sauce is better suited for fish patty.

The fish burger costs MYR 22+ (6% SST = MYR 23.30 nett) but they are having a set lunch deal with fries and bottomless soft drink at MYR 22+ for any burgers so it makes sense to turn the fish burger into a set and pay the same price.

Lunch deal saves MYR 6 nett.

I also bought a peanut butter, blueberry jam burger to try like I said I would. The menu price is MYR 19+ (6% SST = MYR 20.15 nett). Surprisingly, the blueberry jam goes well with the beef patty but the peanut butter gives out oil that felt like it could give me a sore throat so I don't think I will eat this burger again.

Too bad this Ikea Card promo has ended on 31 May 2019 else I would keep using it and eat more burgers here.

Stuffd

This eatery has been around for just a few months in Midvalley Mall at the top floor but I believe that they are available elsewhere in a few other malls in the Klang Valley and is from SG.

They serve Mexican and Turkish cuisine.

They have kebab, daily bowl, burrito, quesadilla and tacos.

Daily Bowl costs about MYR 13.50 each.

Here are the steps on how to order. Every time I wanted to make an order, I would walk into the shop but would walk out again after I have looked at the trays of ingredients at the counter. They just do not look appetising to me so I guess I am never going to try out the food at this eatery. Let us just see how long they will be here as they do have long queues during lunch time so they could be here to stay.

Tomato Pork Noodle Soup

We are back at Leng Leng at Jalil Link, Bukit Jalil for lunch.

A bowl of pork noodle at MYR 7.80 nett and a bowl of 4 meatballs at MYR 2 nett. The meatballs have dried cuttlefish taste so they are delicious!

A meal shared by 2 pax.

Krispee Frostee Rolls

Top View. Crispy snacks!

Krispee Frostee Rolls from Bee Cheng Hiang.

The ingredients. MYR 32 nett for 165g per container.

Remove the red cover to check that the seal is still intact to ensure that you are getting an unopened item.

I bought it mainly because of the buy 1 get 1 free promotion after an initial purchase of MYR 50 nett (min).
