WG Hoagies

Today is the last day of 2019. Anyone feeling sad that 2019 will be over soon?

Pop Pizza is a new eatery in Midvalley Mall that occupies the shop unit that used to house Speedy Video. This article states that Speedy Video closed its outlet in Midvalley Mall on Sunday, 15 Sept 2019.

Ori Udon at the Gardens Mall which I have eaten a meal there once in 2014 has been replaced by Lucky Mala Noodle which has a similar concept to Hotpot Kitchen in Midvalley Mall where customers select raw ingredients and pass it to the kitchen to be stir fried with a choice of spicy sauce that ranges from less spicy to very spicy. My friends considered eating lunch here but I asked them to go ahead while I eat at another place because I don't like having any of their sauces so my friends very kindly say that they will accompany me instead and did not eat lunch at this new eatery.

Jonker Sweets Dessert at the Gardens Mall has been replaced by this kiosk selling kuih lapis. I tried a tiny piece and found it to be very sweet so I did not buy any.

The name is Ambon Boenda.

Whenever we are at Midvalley Mall before 10 am, we will walk around looking for breakfast and one day we saw this signboard but we did not eat here because we have to pay extra for drinks that do not have attractive prices.

Lunch at Hoagies, The Gardens Mall.

Finally I tried the food at Hoagies, The Gardens Mall after walking away from "Lucky Mala Noodle" to have this lunch set with drinks included for the price of MYR 19.90+ (10% service charge) which is MYR 21.90 nett.

My friends ordered the same dish - sweet and sour chicken baked rice to find that there is a layer of cheese underneath the sweet and sour chicken for MYR 21.90 nett.

I ordered the NYC Hoagies set lunch. Very tasty iced lemon passion fruit drink with passion fruit pulps and a slice of lemon in the drink. My friend asked for hot water to be added to her drink and they obliged so service is good. The beef slices in my sandwich is not as tender as I would have like them to be but overall I like this sandwich because there are many slices of red and green capsicum in the sandwich. I think this set lunch is value for money due to the nice drink and crispy fresh salad with black olives.

Total price for 3 pax is MYR 65.65 nett.

Is life like a box of donuts to you?

Since there is a promo by a telco service provider to get 3 free donuts when one buys 3 donuts, I selected the following flavours:
- coffee cinnamon
- almond flakes
- choc nuts
- peanut butter jam
- strawberry fillings
- blueberry fillings
Each donut costs MYR 3.30+ (6% SST = MYR 3.50 nett) so 3 donuts cost MYR 10.50 nett and due to the promo, I get 6 donuts which means 1 donut is MYR 1.75 nett which is half price which is a good deal.

Total price for 6 donuts from Dunkin' Donuts: MYR 10.50 nett.

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! A happy 2020 year to all of you and may the year 2020 be smooth sailing for all of you! Anyone staying up to count down to 2020? I will be in bed snoozing away.

WG LaManila

My order - mushroom chicken wanton noodles at MYR 11.80 nett. The chicken broth is tasty but a bit too salty.

My friend's pasta at MYR 15 nett.

La Manila eatery at Taman Megah, PJ.

Shopfront - La Manila. I have been here a long long time ago for their cakes because their cakes are delicious! I read that the people behind Secret Recipe are related to the owner of La Manila, siblings perhaps. La Manila is way before Secret Recipe.

WG BMS Organics Revamped

 Pumpkin fried rice with a new look and more ingredients such as broccoli and crackers but less cubes of pumpkin at MYR 15.80 nett. Won't order this next time because I prefer more cubes of pumpkin.

 My friend's herb broth pot set with rice at MYR 21.10 nett.

 What is Astaxanthin egg mentioned on the menu above?

 They have redesigned and reprinted the menu.

WG Ah Yip Herbal Soup

Rice bowl and soup at MYR 12.90++ (10% service charge and 6% sst = MYR 14.964 nett). Tasty with no MSG because I was not thirsty at all after finishing the soup and rice. I have stirred the rice before taking this photo so the presentation of the rice bowl is quite messy due to no fault of this eatery.

I ordered the rice and soup from this value set menu - just buy a rice bowl and it includes a soup of your choice from 5 different types of soup:
Set 1: Mushroom Minced Pork Meat Rice MYR 12.90++
Set 2: Potatoes Minced Pork Meat Rice MYR 12.90++
Set 3: Mixed Vegetable Rice MYR 15.90++
Set 4: Ginger and Scallion Chicken Rice MYR 18.90++

Rice bowl:
Set 5: Salted Fish and Belly Pork Rice MYR 19.90++
Set 6: Bean Paste Duck Rice MYR 21.90++
Set 7: Pig Vinegar with Rice MYR 22.90++

5 choices of soup:
PS1: Pineapple Bitter Gourd Soup which I selected. I like it because it has the taste of pineapple in the soup.
PS2: Dried Cabbage Stew Chicken Soup
PS3: Seaweed Stewed Pork Ribs Soup
PS4: Coconut Chicken Soup
PS5: Corn Pork Ribs Soup
Which soup will you select?

 There are also noodle dishes and congee dishes available in the same value menu. Apart from these dishes, there are many other dishes and soups offered in their ala carte menu.

Total price for two pax: MYR 33.40 nett.

Pavilion Xmas Decor 2019

 This year the Xmas decor at Pavilion is all about the movie "Star Wars". Can you spot the red Stormtroopers in the photo above?

 Here they are. Try to find them in photo 1 again.

 Another view.

 Top view from the front entrance.

 There are other spots for photo taking. This decor is near Al Amber restaurant.

 Many people posing for photos with this decor.
Christmas tree, snowman, sparkling white tree branches and many pots of poinsettia plants.
 Should I eat at this place? Please click on the above photo for a larger image.

 Entrance to Pavilion with two Christmas trees.

 Any Marvel fans here?

 New eatery at Pavilion Elite with not many customers while some other restaurants are full so I wonder how long Nasi Lemak Ong will be here.

 Tarbush Express stall at the LG Food Court at Pavilion.

 My brunch from Tarbush Express - Hummus Lamb at MYR 17+ (6% sst = MYR 18 nett).

 Brunch eaten at about 12.20 pm.

 Noodles with 3 toppings at MYR 13.90++ with an additional MYR 0.50++ for HK Egg Noodles so it is MYR 14.40++ (10% service charge and 6% sst is MYR 16.70 nett. The luncheon meat is too soft and felt like it has too much flour mixture in it. The other 2 toppings Lemongrass pork chop and intestines taste ok but the broth is on the salty side and though we selected less spicy, there is still a big dollop of chilli paste in the broth which we scooped out into a small saucer that we requested for just this purpose.

 Another bowl of noodles (hor fun) with 3 toppings - fuzhou fish balls, curry pork skin and blood cubes which we were told were not available so we selected chicken feet as replacement. Price is MYR 13.90++ (MYR 16.12 nett). We also removed the chilli paste as we selected less spicy but they still gave us a big dollop of chilli paste. The broth is on the salty side as well.

 With a drink of iced ying yong at MYR 6.90++, the total bill is MYR 40.80 nett.
Parking for 2 hours at Pavilion costs MYR 6 nett and it took us a long time to exit the car park at 1 pm due to traffic congestion opposite wisma cosway so I guess it will be along long time before we visit Pavilion again. The seats at the food court at Pavilion are fully occupied too so it is not so convenient to eat at the food court.

 Early dinner at about 4.30 pm at Mami Porridge, Sri Petaling. Fish congee at MYR 7 nett and Salted egg with century egg congee at MYR 6 nett.

 As these two dishes are not on the regular menu, the receipt printed others as the description.

 Mami Porridge, Sri Petaling - Storefront.

Bought takeaways for another day.
