WL Beef Lai Fun

For the last week of 2016, I am going to show the lunches that I ate during a work week. Every morning when I eat my breakfast at a local coffee shop, I will store half of it away in my stainless steel container for lunch as the portion served is too much for me to finish early in the morning.

Half portion of beef lai fun noodle stored for lunch.

I added some broccoli cooked at home to it.

Just before I eat it, I will add in some hot water.

Added My

Hakka noodle with char siew (BBQ pork) - MYR7.50 nett. Cold lime juice - MYR3 nett. A portion of deep fried dumplings (3 pieces of sui kow) - MYR4.80 nett so it is MYR1.60 nett each. The noodle is soft so I like it and I requested for lean meat and was given lean meat with just a little bit of fat at both ends. I also like the way they cut the meat into thicker pieces instead of thin slices like what many eateries tend to do. 

A plate of char siew rice - MYR7.20 nett. The portion of rice looks more than the meat.

Total bill is MYR25.

This new eatery is located in SS2 near Penang Kayu Nasi Kandar eatery.

Sunway Nexis

Decor at Sunway Nexis, Kota Damansara

Ipoh curry noodle which is full of strong spices flavour with prawns, char siew (BBQ pork slices), curry leaves, shreds of chicken meat - MYR12.90 nett. White Coffee with Ice - MYR4.30 nett and free glutinous rice balls (tang yuen) because yesterday was Winter Solstice Festival (DongZhi). I like the curry because of the spices and the hor fun is very smooth. The white coffee is very rich.

Side dishes of deep fried dumplings (sui gow) - MYR4.90 nett for 3 pieces (one portion) and deep fried lotus buns. Both are very crispy and tasty. One of the better deep fried dumplings.

 This is the eatery at Sunway Nexis. The HQ is in Ipoh. For an authentic taste of Ipoh, you can visit here if you happen to be at Sunway Nexis. They will be open for all days of CNY 2017. They also serve Ipoh Chicken Hor Fun. Parking is free for the 1st 2 hours.

This is the number to call to get in touch with them.

Old School

Sweet and sour pork chop rice set with a drink included - MYR12.90++ (10% service charge and 6% GST) which is about MYR15.05 nett. I chose a barley drink and requested it to be less sweet which they did fulfill. I like this set meal because the portion of rice is small and sweet sour pork chop is one of my favourite food from my childhood..

The meat is quite thick.

Some of the other lunch set meals. Please click on the menu to have a larger image.

Prawn noodle from the ala carte menu. I think it is about MYR11.90++. My friend says it tastes good.

They even decorated the eatery like a classroom. There is another branch in Bandar Puteri, Puchong. This one is located in Jaya One, PJ.

Pablo

One Pablo mini cheese tart to try

Side view

It smells like a butter cookie. The crust tastes like digestive biscuits. The cheese fillings taste a bit like thick yogurt and you can taste that it is salty and sourish. Strong taste when compared to the subtle taste of Bake's cheese tart. I prefer Bake cheese tarts and Tokyo Secret cheese tarts to this one.

MYR8.90 nett for one mini cheese tart.

There are bigger cheese tarts selling at about MYR46 each and premium cheese tarts at about MYR80 each. They also sell drinks.

Pablo freshly baked cheese tart at One Utama. Although there is a long queue but it moves very quickly.

Two in One

Christmas decorations in One Utama. Giant spiders, giant poinsettias, and a red and white crystal balls christmas tree. According to thestar article

[excerpt from the article]
1 Utama Shopping Centre general manager Patrick So revealed that they drew inspiration from a picture that captured a spider spinning its web during winter. “The approach we had was based on an environmental aspect. “Of course, Christmas is all about having family members coming together, but we want to send the message out that we should also be thankful and appreciative of nature’s beauty and its unique creations,” he explained.
[end of excerpt]

Can you see the spider webs?

I like these moss covered rocks because they look like matcha chocolate truffles.

It is fun to walk below these giant poinsettias. It feels like walking in a magic forest.

**********

I was in Damansara Utama recently and when I saw the Texas Chicken eatery, I thought of this post  that mentioned a rojak van nearby that has tasty gravy which is not the same as the peanut gravy for satay so I looked for the van and found it. In the photo above, just look for the blue canopy.

This is the rojak van. The canopy is blue in colour but somehow from this angle, the blue colour cannot be seen and it looked greyish. I did not try the rojak because I was already full and I can't order takeaway because I was going to walk around the new Starling mall so it is not convenient to carry a bag of rojak gravy to go window shopping. Next time then.

This is the name on the van. If you manage to read it, it says "Rojak Utama".

ChiaTe

ChiaTe is a popular bakery in Taiwan selling an assortment of Taiwan style pineapple tarts.

Walnut pineapple tart covered with acrospire - NTD35 nett (MYR4.80 nett at an exchange rate of NTD100 to MYR13.72).

The fillings are made up of walnuts and pineapple with a bit of winter melon taste. Sweet but not too sweet so is quite tasty.

Not long enough

Back in April this year (2016), I thought that it would be a very, very long time before we eat at House of Fishball, Sri Petaling again but I was wrong. On early morning, we had some errands to run nearby so we ate at this eatery again as it was the closest eatery around that was opened at that time.

I ordered a plate of stir fried chee cheong fun (MYR7 nett) and it was too oily for my liking. The bowl of hot barley bean curd sheets ginkgo (MYR3.50 nett) was not that sweet so it was fine for me. Guess we will only be back here if we have no other choices available to us.
