Near Expiry Date

MYR15.80 nett a box but now they are having a buy 1 get another box free because they want to clear the CNY stock so I bought 1 box and ended up with 2 boxes.

They are tasty but not the best that I have eaten so far. 

The expiry date is 31 march 2017 which is about 9 days away.

The answer is for the previous post is I had the BMS signature nasi lemak! Who guessed correctly? Many did. Surprisingly, none guessed the vegetarian bak kut teh. For those who guessed teppanyaki, if you did a search for the word "teppanyaki" on my blog, you would have found no mention of teppanyaki before the previous post. That is because I absolutely dislike teppanyaki due to the smell of hot oil (almost like wok hei) so I have never eaten teppanyaki and wouldn't even try it. Thank you all for joining this guessing game! :) Have a good weekend!

BMS Organics

I make it a point not to eat at special vegetarian eateries especially organic ones because of the high price so I have not eaten at BMS Organics after it started operating in Midvalley Mall sometime around Oct 2015. Recently my co-workers decided to go there for lunch so I went along.

The 3 of us ordered a meal each. 

Herby Broth Pot with Multigrain Rice (can see the rice in photo 1) - MYR20.90 nett. This tastes very good like Bak Kut Teh but without any meat.

Vegetables Teppanyaki with Multigrain Rice - MYR11.90 nett - set has peanuts and pickled radish. Anyone who likes to eat crunchy vegetables would like this.

BMS Signature Nasi Lemak - MYR13.90 nett with pumpkin rendang. I would say this is a tasty dish although the sambal is a bit on the sweet side and the acar is a bit too salty.
Of the 3 dishes above, which dish do you think is my order/lunch? Please take a guess. The answer will be revealed in the next post.

Okra in Sesame Sauce - MYR10.90 nett. We shared this dish. Very tender okra.

Total Bill is MYR57.60 nett for the lunch and MYR15.80 is for two boxes of Pineapple Rolls (buy 1 box get 1 box free).

Anzu KL

When I read that there is a new Japanese eatery that specialises in tonkatsu here in Lot 10, KL, I plan to eat there to celebrate a special occasion. We went there yesterday for lunch and ordered all three of the limited Ginjo Pork Tonkatsu Sets (black pig) in the menu to try and all four of us agreed that this is the best tonkatsu eatery in KL now. The pork is juicy, tender with crispy batter but not oily. We chose to have brown rice and both types of soup - bean soup and seaweed soup among the 4 of us.

Ginjo Pork Fillet Katsu Set - MYR55+ 6% GST (MYR58.30 nett)

Very very thick pork fillet which is a bit pink in the middle

Small pork loin katsu set - MYR35+ (MYR37.10 nett). This item is not from the limited section of the menu so it would be available all day.

See the difference? The small pork loin katsu with the thick pork fillet.

Ginjo Pork Loin Katsu Set - MYR48+ 6% GST (MYR50.88 nett)

Ginjo Pork Fatty Loin Katsu Set - MYR55+ 6% GST (MYR58.30 nett)

We had to grind our own sesame to make the sesame sauce

Unlimited refillable rice and finely shredded cabbage. There are a few types of slightly sweet brown sauce provided.

Free appetiser - pickled shredded radish.

Shiso mayonnaise (shiso leaves) is also provided in the mini decanter jug in the photo above. I like the taste of shiso leaves which lift up the taste of the mayonnaise.

Total bill MYR204.80 for 4pax (on average around MYR50 per person). I  think we will just eat here once a year for celebrations.


Limited seats so be there early at 11 am or be prepared to wait for a while.

Main entrance to all the new Japanese restaurants in Isetan, Lot 10.

Anzu KL

Operating Hours. I think should be 11 am and not 10 am so do call to confirm.

Mix and Match

Whenever we are at The Curve, we would go to Teh Tarik Place if we wanted to have a tasty meal (inclusive of a drink) for under MYR15 per person.

"Sini Cannot Smoking" - just trying to be different?

Even if you don't understand the sentence, you will understand the no-smoking sign.

Not so new

One fine Sunday, my friends and I wanted to have a meal at Peter Hoe Cafe at The Row, Jalan Doraisamy (first floor) so we went there at 10.30 am but the lunch menu was not available yet so one of my friends suggested that we walk to Yut Kee eatery a few streets away. Ever since Yut Kee moved to its new location (which is very near to its old location) in 2014, I have not been there so I said ok, why not, might as well try the food there at least once since I seldom venture into this area.

When we reached Yut Kee, there were many people waiting for seats but we did not have to wait long and were shown to our table. We did not order the popular dishes such as Pork Bun and Hainanese Chicken Chop because we felt like eating noodles. The noodles taste ok with reasonable price.

Lum Mee - MYR 8.50 nett

Curry MeeHoon Mee - MYR 7.50 nett

Hailam Mee - MYR 7.50 nett

Fried Toong Fun - MYR 7.50 nett

Full House

Yut Kee

Total bill for 4 is MYR 37.65 nett inclusive of drinks

Closed on Mondays

This is the new but not so new location.

Missing out

This is a famous banana leaf rice place that I did not know about so my friends took me there for lunch one day. True enough, it was very tasty with very crispy deep fried squid which is a must-order. We shared the meat dishes such as curry mutton, deep fried fish and chicken. I tried the crab rasam and just find it spicy though my friend said it tastes like tom yum to her. For 7 of us, the bill is MYR153 inclusive of drinks which means about MYR22 each. 

This eatery is located in a detached house in PJ.

Upon entering the house, you will see the area where all the deep frying takes place. After entering the small entrance in the photo above, you will see the following area in the photo below:

More counter tops.

The cabinet with the cooked dishes is opposite the counter tops. From this area, we enter the door on our left to the rooms which have been converted into air-conditioned dining areas.

Sri Ganapathi Mess is the name of this place.

Barcook Bun

Almost a year ago, I mentioned Barcook Bakery opening a branch in the Gardens Mall but did not buy any buns to try at that time.

Salty Egg Yolk Bun - MYR3.90 nett - soft and sweet bun

The bag looks wet because I just took it out from my fridge

Mixberry Cheese - MYR3.90 nett - softer and sweeter than the egg yolk bun

No photo of the pumpkin walnut bun because I shared it with my friends before I remember to take a photo of it. These Barcook Buns are for those who like very soft and sweet buns. I think there may be some savoury buns sold there but I am not sure so don't take my word for it.

Ko Hyang

Pa Jeon (Seafood pancake with spring onion) with Banchan (3 side dishes) at MYR14.9+ 6% GST (MYR15.80 nett) at Ko Hyang, the Gardens Mall. I like to eat this Korean pancake because it is crispy outside but soft yet chewy inside but I could not finish one on my own so I ended up taking half home as dinner because my lunch companion does not want to eat any pancake.

I did not take photo of the food my friend ordered. For two pax, the total bill is MYR35.40 nett.

Rakuzen finally

We have known for a long time that the menu of Rakuzen is similar to those of Kura Japanese restaurant in One World Hotel, Bandar Utama and Hokkaido Ichiba, the Gardens mall because they are from the same group but we have never eaten there until recently when we went to Sunway Velocity.

Nabe Udon Salmon Don Set - MYR45 nett. I shared this set with my friend. I had the salmon don while she ate the Nabe Udon.

Salmon Shioyaki Set - MYR30 nett. The salmon is fresh and tasty.

Ebiten Tobiko Maki - MYR20 nett. I was taken aback by how it looks. I think they should have used a smaller plate for this.

Close up of the prawn roll. Taste quite nice.

Rakuzen at Sunway Velocity Mall. The food here tastes as good as those from Kura Restaurant so we will eat here instead of going all the way to Kura the next time we feel like having Japanese food.

For drinks, we ordered 3 cups of hot green tea (refillable) which turned out to be free of charge. I like Japanese eateries that provide free refillable green tea drinks. Total bill came up to MYR95 nett.
