Popcorn Stalls closed

Last Sunday, we went to Popcorn food court Midvalley Mall to have pork noodles and hokkien mee only to find that the Siew Kei Pork Noodle stall has been replaced by another pork noodle eatery called Ding Xiang Sang Nyuk Noodles which has yet to start operations (left side of photo above) and that Stall 7 Uptown Hokkien Mee has been boarded up (right side of photo above). We were disappointed because we thought they were popular stalls at this food court so why stop operations?

So we went to Canton-i and ordered the above food for two pax. Needless to say I was stuffed to the brim.

Total bill is MYR 59.10 nett inclusive of two tea towels.

AK Fishball at Midvalley Mall/Gardens has started their business operations (Nana green tea used to be here) and Bumble Bee of Transformer fame is standing guard.

48HRBD3 SunBather Coffee

Salmon and Zucchini at MYR 38 nett from the weekend menu. The grilled salmon is thick and fresh with salad leaves and thin slices of sweet potatoes on top.

I like that they use strips of zucchini to replace noodles. A perfect dish for those who are on a low carb eating plan.

Black Forest Roll Cake at MYR 15 nett for those who like to eat black forest cake. There is even one preserved cherry in the fine chocolate cake.

One scoop of ice cream costs MYR 7 nett. Add MYR 4 nett for the flower waffle. The green tea ice cream is sweet and does not taste creamy/milky.

Osmanthus Latte - MYR 12 nett for a regular cup. Rich coffee aroma with the fragrance of osmanthus flowers.

MYR 76 nett for 1 main meal, 1 ice cream, 1 cake and 1 coffee.

Chat over food

Met up with my ex uni friends and we ordered food to share and chat over for a long time.

Can you believe that 4 persons shared this plate of wanton noodles too?

My friend took care of this bill of about MYR 75 ish. Thanks friend. I guess we will gather again in about a year when you visit KL again. Maybe we will eat at Sheng Kee, One Utama or maybe not.

9 meatballs

Whenever we need to go to MyTown Mall, we would go at 9 am to ensure we find a parking spot. Then we would buy the combo 3 at Ikea cafeteria to have a snack and proceed to look for proper lunch. One day, we walked through the whole of MyTown Mall at around 10.30 am to find that most eateries were not opened yet so we ended up at Go Noodle.

A bowl of noodle and a hot ginger tea for my friend. I just nibble off the bowl and took a sip of the tea. Both pork tendon balls and the pork mushroom balls are flavourful but the mushroom taste has an edge over the tendon balls.

The mushroom pork ball noodles (soup) costs MYR 12.50++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 14.50 nett) and we added a serving of pork tendon balls at MYR 3.50++ (MYR 4.06 nett) so this bowl of noodles with 9 meatballs costs MYR 16.56 nett. The ginger tea costs MYR 4.50++ (MYR 5.22 nett).

Total price is MYR 23.80 nett for 1 pax.

Go Noodle House at MyTown Mall.

Another day at MyTown Mall and we ended up at Go Noodle House again. They ran out of grouper fish slices so we had to make do with fish paste (yu wat) though we prefer to eat grouper fish slices. Truth be told, I would rather eat fries than noodles in soup but my companions outvoted me.

This is my must-eat whenever I am at MyTown Mall. Just need to walk over to Ikea cafe to buy this sausage in a bun and put mustard all over it. The ala carte price is MYR 2 nett for one.

48HRBD2 Bens Express Lunch

The two of us ordered two sets of Ben's Express Lunch to share which includes a glass of ice lemon tea:
- a two-course set lunch at MYR 28++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 32.5 nett) and
- a three-course set lunch at MYR 35++ (MYR 40.6 nett).

Ben's House Salad - lettuce, arugula, avocado, cherry, tomatoes, edamame, walnuts, 7-seed mix with Ben's signature dressing which is a bit sweet, light and tangy. This is my favourite dish for this lunch and it is suitable for vegetarians as it contains no meat.

Chicken Cos Salad - Grilled  Chicken Breast, Cos Lettuce aka Romaine Lettuce, Crispy Chicken Bacon Bits, Avocado, Edamame, dried cranberries, Baby Spinach in Ranch Dressing. My friend does not like this salad because the ranch dressing tastes rich and creamy so I was tasked to eat it all which is fine by me since I like to eat salad but I would prefer it to be with a lighter dressing.

Nasi Kerabu Ayam Percik with budu sauce and pickled garlic. Luckily the portion is not large. I ate a bit of each item and found them to be tasty and my friend finished it.

Fish and Chips - there are two pieces of fish so I kept one and most of the fries for another meal. The fish is not dory but I did not ask what fish it is. The meat is a bit salty, white and flaky. My friend likes it.

Drinking water is provided foc. The ice lemon tea is freshly prepared with lemon slices and mint in the drink. I forgot to request for no syrup so the ice lemon tea is sweet. Dessert is apple crumble or pulut hitam and I selected apple crumble. It is very tasty, especially the buttery pastry and zesty apple fillings.

Total bill for two pax: MYR 73.10 nett.

Ben's at the Gardens Mall. Back in 2016, it looks a bit different.

Which dishes will you choose? Two or Three course?

Feng Shi Shen

After more than 5 months of reading PH's article about this pork noodles eatery in SS2, PJ, I finally tried it. I ordered the basic Traditional Pork Noodle with Yee Mee at MYR 9.50 nett and super like the pieces of compacted minced pork because they taste exactly the same as those minced pork patties with pickled vegetable (tong choy or choy poh) so they are very delicious.

My friend ordered the Combo Pork Noodle with everything (liver, kidney, pork slices, stomach and intestines) at MYR 14.90 nett. The pork ingredients are very fresh so it is thumbs up from us. The broth however is not those porky porky thick broth like those broth of pork specialty ramen but uses soy sauce and garlic/onion oil to give it the deep flavours and we are ok with it, no complaints. 

Total bill is MYR 28.90 nett for 2 pax.

Feng Shi Shen Pork Noodle at SS2, PJ (same row as McD SS2). I just could not remember the name, they should just use a catchy name that is easy to roll off the tongue.

48HRBD1 Lamb Cevapi set lunch

Weekday lunch set at Tony Roma's, Midvalley Mall. Quarter Chicken at MYR 22.78 nett and One Beef Rib with Lamb Cevapi (Grilled Minced Lamb Skinless Sausages) at MYR 43.67 nett.

There are 6 pieces of Lamb Cevapi hidden underneath the grilled vegetables of carrots, cucumbers and red capsicums. The portion of mashed potatoes is big so I kept most of them and 5 pieces of lamb cevapi for another day.

Soup of the day (borscht soup) which is included with the lunch set and complimentary bread and garlic butter.

Free flow soft drinks are included in the set lunch. I chose ice lemon tea and my friend chose 7-up.

We were provided with 4 sauces which I suspect to be Carolina Honeys, Original BBQ, Blue Ridge Smokies, Red Hot sauces like the time in 2015 but we did not use any.

Total amount for 2 pax for set lunch is MYR 66.45 nett.

Texas Asam Honey Chicken

Texas Chicken special promotion - Asam Honey Chicken combo deals with drinks, rice/mashed potatoes and honey biscuits.

As I do not want the soft drinks, I did not buy the combo deals but I just bought 2 pieces of chicken from the ala carte menu at MYR 12 nett. The usual price for 2 pieces of chicken is MYR 10.40 nett and I need to top up 80 cents for each chicken to get the Asam Honey marinate.

Asam Honey Chicken - MYR 6 nett per piece on average. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken so it is quite tasty.

WG Yasai Omu Curry Rice

Lunch on a Friday: Sushi Zanmai (my default conveyor belt sushi eatery) at Starling Mall.


Yasai Omu Curry Rice at MYR 19.80 nett (inclusive of 6% SST). Yasai (野菜) means vegetable so there are potatoes, pumpkin, okra and carrots in this meal. Omurice refers to rice wrapped in an omelette. My friend says this dish is tasty and I guess the Curry is on the sweet side since my friend does not take spicy food.

This Yasai Omu Curry Rice is available until 12 Sep 2019 since it is on the special monthly menu for Sep 2019.

As I was quite hungry, I took this white plate of tamago sushi (MYR 2.8 nett) from the conveyor belt while waiting for my main meal.

Almost every time I go to Sushi Zanmai, I will order this dish - a small portion of soba with tempura (prawn, brinjal, okra) at MYR 14.80 nett but I think I will need to find another dish to order as I find the tempura to be too oily for me this time.

Total bill for 2 pax is MYR 37.40 nett where MYR 17.60 nett is my portion.


Lunch on a Thursday: Beans and Yogurt at Taman Connaught.

We last visited Beans and Yogurt in May 2019 (4 months ago) so they are still using the same set meal menu. This time I ordered what my friend had last time - Hainanese Fish Fillet Rice at MYR 16 nett from the All Day Long Lunch set menu that includes a cup of Honey Lemon drink (cold for me and hot for my friend) and one piece of Penang Lobak (some places call it Ngor Hiong). I kept half the meal for another day. My friend likes the fish but it was dory fish so I find the meat kind of translucent looking and slippery so I will not order it again next time. Better to stick to the pork loin chop rice at MYR 11 nett that I had the previous time.
