Dairy Tooth

This is a new eatery in Jaya One, PJ. My friend told me that their silky milk tea from Hong Kong is delicious! I have yet to try it.

New Menu

We visited Tea Garden at Sri Petaling recently and found that they have a new menu now.

My order - Dry Mee Siam (plain with only beansprouts) at MYR4.50 nett. I find it too spicy so I must remember not to order this next time.

We also ordered other items so the total bill is MYR23.80 nett for 2 pax.

Dessert Dinner

All these for two.

Fruits Rojak - MYR10++ 6% GST and 10% service charge (MYR11.65 nett) - cucumber, green apple, guava, jicama and pineapple with peanuts and fish sauce.

Mango with Tohua - MYR7++ (MYR8.15 nett). The mango puree on top of the slices of mango tastes good without any of the "fake" concentrated cordial mango drink taste.

Peanut Paste - MYR5++ (MYR5.85 nett). I like this the best because it is only slightly sweet with a strong roasted peanut taste.

ABC with ice cream - MYR8++ (MYR9.35 nett). There are way too many types of ingredients in it - cendol, attap chee (nipa palm), red bean, grass jelly (leong fun/cincau), peanuts and yellow raisins.

Red Bean Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Lotus Seeds - MYR6++ (MYR7 nett). I like this because everything in it is soft and tasty, not too sweet.

We ordered so many items at Farmer Street, Jaya Shopping Centre because we wanted the bill to be over MYR50 so that we can pay by card. I did not eat the rice at all.

Warung

Nasi Lemak Beef Rendang - MYR11.90++ 10% service charge and 6% GST (MYR13.85 nett). The portion is not big, just nice for an average appetite. The beef is tender and tasty. Cold Nescafe Coffee - MYR3.60++ (MYR4.20 nett).

Total Bill for 1 pax - MYR18.05 nett.

The Warung is located next to RotiBoy in Midvalley Mall, near the entrance from the train stop (KTM). This is the eatery that we will go to for nasi lemak beef rendang in Midvalley Mall now.

Honey Cake

I was at RT Pastry when I noticed many people were buying honey cakes, so when it was my turn, I asked for one too without knowing the price. It is just a small cake, about 3 inches in diameter.

Bought it again on another day.

The box and description

Very soft with the nice taste of honey and a spot of savoury cheese on top.

Then I looked at the receipt for its price - oh, MYR7.50 nett. At this price, I would rather eat Tokyo Secret Cheese Tarts.

FOC Hot Water

Chicken Curry Kapitan Rice - MYR13++ (MYR15.15 nett). The curry gravy is thick and flavourful. As there was a lot of curry gravy, I took the balance home and ate them with mee hoon for lunch the next day.

 A cup of hot honey lemon at MYR5++ (MYR5.85 nett). We forgot to stir this drink so it was very sweet after we drank half of it as the honey was at the bottom of the cup. I asked for an additional cup of hot water to add to this half cup of honey lemon drink and was not charged for the hot water so we will definitely return to try all the items on the menu as we like their good service.

Peanut Paste and Sweet Potatoes - MYR6++ (MYR7 nett). I like this dessert because it is just slightly sweet.

Total Bill is MYR28 nett for 2 pax for dinner at Farmers Street, Jaya.

Afternoon Tea

Brasserie 25 is a restaurant in Hotel Stripes, the new YTL boutique hotel which is located near Yut Kee. It offers Le Gouter (Tea Time in French) at MYR60 nett per pax daily from 3pm to 6pm with free flow of food and drinks. When my friend informed me that they are now having a promotional price of MYR60 nett for 2 pax until the end of June, the 4 of us made a reservation immediately.

Savoury snacks are served first. There are three types, one for each of us.

Deep fried parmesan cheese rice balls - rich cheese taste, not salty.

Chicken curry puff and smoke salmon mini quiche

When we have finished eating the savoury snacks, a tray of sweet goodies were brought to us for us to choose the ones that we would like to eat. Each of us chose one of the above - a raspberry macaron, a mini pistachio strawberry tart, a slice of pistachio biscotti, and a stick of cookie which I think may be the "Langues de chat" (cat's tongue's cookie).

Then for the other sweet items, we chose one of each to share between the 4 of us. I did not catch their names when told to us so I will just describe what I think I tasted for each of them - (from left to right) - a choux pastry with hazelnut cream (Pralinoise Paris-Brest), pear tart, opera cake (tiramisu), a round dark chocolate cake, and I can't remember what the other two slices of cakes taste like. At anytime we could ask for any of the items to be refilled.

Later a tray of ham and cheese toasted sandwiches were brought to us but we only took two as we were quite full then. The selection of drinks were black tea, coffee or latte and all of us chose black tea.

For the 4 of us, only two paid MYR60 nett each and the other two ate for free. Of course we divided the cost evenly between us so each of us paid MYR30 nett only for this free flow afternoon tea.

******
My friends also went for two other afternoon teas (which I did not join) but which I will include here for comparison.

Grand High Tea Set by TWG - MYR118+ 10% service charge for two pax. All the above food items are infused with tea.

5 savoury items and 5 sweet items each so 10 food items for 1 person.

******

Cafes Richard at Sky Avenue, Genting Highlands. This tea set is for 2 to 4 pax and includes one coffee or tea. I think the price is about MYR143 (non member) or MYR128 (member).

Awesome Canteen

I did not know what to order after looking through the menu many times. Awesome Canteen is known for its Paleo menu. Eating the Paleo way means no processed food at all. If you are interested, you can perform an online search on the Paleo Diet which is very popular now.

Since I don't know what to order, I went to the one dish that I am most familiar with - Saba Shioyaki (lightly salted) Don (rice bowl) at MYR18.90+ 6% GST (MYR20 nett) which includes a bowl of miso soup. A poached egg is included and I requested it to be fully cooked but the yolk was still a bit runny though the whites are fully cooked. On hindsight, I should have requested for a hard boiled egg instead of just saying fully cooked egg please because it would be quite difficult to fully cook a poached egg.

I place the runny yolk into the hot miso soup to try to cook it a bit. At least it was not so runny when I ate it.


Awesome Canteen at Paramount Garden, PJ (near Loong Foong Duck).

I bought a slice of dark chocolate cake as takeaway MYR14.90+ (MYR15.80 nett). Only slightly sweet with a rich chocolate taste so it was tasty.

A box for the slice of cake.

Receipt for the cake only.

Only taste matters

Weekly dinner at Jaya - Beef Rendang Nasi Lemak - MYR14++ (MYR16.30 nett) with a cup of hot coffee - MYR4++ (MYR4.70 nett) making it a total of MYR21 nett for 2 pax at Farmers Street, Jaya. It may not look appetising but it is quite tasty.

Lamb Chop

After NuxV mentioned that Dave's Deli has started business in Midvalley Mall, I went looking for it and found it on the same row as The Library and Kim Gary eateries.

The 30% off for all main meals promotion is available. This discount is not applicable for drinks.

But only on Mon to Fri excluding public holidays for dining in from 12 noon to 3 pm only. Hhhmmm, but then I worked quite a distance away. After the enjoyable meal previously, I hope to eat here on this promotion.

Updated:
One day, my co-workers went to Midvalley Mall because they wanted to have lunch at Kim Gary but there was a long queue so we went to Dave Deli's which was nearby which also had a queue at the cashier counter where we had to place our orders and pay for our food before they were delivered to our table.

My order - Lamb Chop - MYR17.45 nett after 30% off the original price of MYR24.90 nett. The lamb chop is not exactly the fall-off-bone type but good enough. There were 3 pieces and I took 2 home for dinner since the sides of vegetable, mash potatoes and coleslaw alone were enough to keep me full for a while.

 Quarter Roasted Chicken at MYR14.60 nett after 30% off the original price of MYR20.80 nett. This is such a good deal when compared to some other eateries that serve Roasted Chicken too. There is a choice of a whole chicken leg or the breast portion.

Two of my co-workers ordered Chicken Chop at MYR14.60 nett after 30% off the original price of MYR20.80 nett and both of them could not finish this dish because it was too much for them. Same price as the quarter roasted chicken dish above. Which one do you prefer - Chicken Chop or Roasted Chicken?

 Foot long sausage at MYR13.25 nett after 30% off the original price of MYR18.90 nett. I ate this dish a long time ago when I was below 12 years old and found it to be quite tasty.

Total Amount for 5 pax is MYR88.15 nett

Simple Life

Lately I have been eating at vegetarian specialty eateries because my co-workers wanted to eat there and I am ok to eat there once in a while. This time, instead of  BMS Organics, we went to Simple Life because my friend felt like having their Organic Black Bean Soup that she had tried before.

My order - Mixed mushrooms herbal soup with pumpkin noodle set - MYR13.90+ 6% GST (MYR14.70 nett). A cup of green tea (hot) is included in this set. Fortunately the portion was small so I managed to finish it. I like eating various mushrooms so I find this dish quite tasty.

Mee Suah in Organic Black Bean Soup - MYR14.90+ 6% GST (MYR15.80 nett). I tried a bit of her dish and felt that it tasted better than my order so if she wants to eat here again, I may order this dish. She was halfway through her bowl of mee suah when I took the above photo. There were more ingredients in the bowl before that.

"Leadsafe for a healthier living" was written on the inside rim of the cup.

Total Bill is MYR30.50 nett for 2 pax.

Simple Life at the Gardens Mall. I was surprised to see that it was full house.during lunch time. People are more health conscious now and healthy vegetarian is the way to go, so it seems.
