Good Taste in Jalil Link to have our early dinner at 4.30 pm. I ordered a small portion of lean char siew (BBQ pork) at MYR7.50 nett. I like to eat this char siew because it is very lean and tender. It is not those melt-in-the-mouth-caramelized-char-siew.

"Nian Gao" - 年糕 (chinese new year sticky cake) is made from glutinous rice flour and brown sugar. It is usually eaten during chinese new year but deep fried nian gao can be found sold in hawker stalls all year round. The "I love you" kiosk in the Midvalley mall sells deep fried nian gao now so we bought one to try at MYR2.40 nett.
SS2 deep fried nian gao at only MYR2.20 nett.
MYR2.40 nett for such a thin piece of deep fried nian gao so it is not worth it.

MYR22.90 nett for a non-vegetarian set meal.
For vegetarians, I wonder which set would they prefer.

Nana's Green Tea's Special Sweets for October 2016 which is based on pumpkins.
Pumpkin Parfait - MYR23.90 nett - Pumpkin Pudding at the bottom, soft served ice cream and corn flakes next, then a scoop of vanilla ice cream, red bean paste and pumpkin cake.
Pumpkin Hot Cake - MYR19.60 nett - Pancake made with pumpkin in the batter served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a scoop of blended pumpkin white bean paste and whipped cream.
Pumpkin Latte with Soft cream (cold) - MYR16.90 nett - similar to the above except that it is topped with soft serve ice cream instead of whipped cream and is served cold.
The above items sound like heaven for people with a very sweet tooth. I have a sweet tooth too but not as sweet so I don't think I will be trying any of the above items. It would be interesting to see whether the Oct special sweets menu for Oct next year will have the same items or not.

Keema Curry Udon at MYR23.90 nett. For this month, it is Soboro Ankake Omelette Rice at the same price as last month's food. Soboro means minced chicken meat. Ankake seems to mean sauce thickened with starch or a dish prepared with a starch-based sauce.

Bought just one to share with my friend who bakes.
Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart - Straight out of the oven.
We ate it when it was still hot. The pastry crust tastes like butter cookies and is thicker, sweeter and coarser than Uncle Tetsu cheese tart and Tokyo Secret cheese tart. The fillings taste very milky and flow out like liquid as soon as we cut the tart into half. I could only taste the cheese at the top layer. Suitable for those who don't like strong cheese and prefer strong milky taste instead.

A group of my co-workers gave the whole department a lunch treat.
Other than the raw meat, there are plenty of dishes (cooked food) for us to take as much as we like if we can finish them. No wastage of food, please. The above dishes are stirfried kimchi noodle, topokki, curry potatoes, fried rice, kimchi fried rice. There are so many more dishes until I gave up trying to take photos of them.
My co-worker's food - some rice, potatoes salad, seaweed soup, beansprout, mung bean noodle.
Even though I was full, I still had space for a vanilla cone which we had to serve ourselves from the soft serve ice cream machine.

two desserts recommended by PH. Molten Lava Cake with a scoop of ice cream - MYR18.50+ 10% service charge (MYR20.35 nett).
Top view. PH is right when she says that the chocolate lava is not sweet because it truly is not sweet at all. It is very rich in chocolate taste. The ice cream on the other hand is sweet.
We were the only table occupied. There were no other customers there at around 2 pm. I hope this eatery has enough customers to sustain their business. They opened around May this year.
A piece of happiness written on the wall.
Total bill is MYR48.40 for 4 persons. We did not order any drinks because no drinks were required. We left immediately after eating the desserts so we could drink plain water from our water bottles in our car as we had enough calories from the desserts and do not need more calories from sugary beverages.

After reading PH's many posts about the delicious Pork Knuckle in Sweet and Sour Sauce at SuperThai Restaurant, I went there for lunch yesterday at about 12.15 noon only to be told that it is not available. The waitress was not very fluent in English so communication is a bit difficult. I asked if it is available for dinner and she answered yes because it takes a long time to prepare and cook it. So tough luck, we can't have it for lunch then. Guess next time I will have to call up to make sure that the pork knuckle is available before coming here for lunch. Oh well, since we were already there, we ordered other dishes instead of leaving.
Grilled Pork Neck with the garlic, coriander, lime and etc green dip - MYR28 nett. The dip is sourish and garlicky so I like it. I like the pork neck meat too as it was lean but not dry. The neck meat is marbled intermittently with cartilage, tendon and very little fat so it was chewy but tender. Very nice texture.
Please click on the image above and below for a larger image of the menu above and below.
Good news! The set lunch is available on weekends too and they are now open 7 days a week.
Total bill is MYR95 nett. Payment in cash only. Good price for tasty food. I will definitely be back for the pork knuckle. After this scrumptious lunch, we went for dessert at another place recommended by PH. Guess where? :D
