Din Tai Fung @ Pavilion, Kuala Lumpur

We visited Din Tai Fung during the lunch hour at Pavilion. It seems like every restaurant is crowded and need to queue up. We waited for 3 minutes for our tables to be ready and we are directed to the corner end with a big semi private section. However, the air conditioning is very bad here. We ordered few dishes and the serving time is less than 10 minutes.





Fried rice



Seaweed soft taufu  I enjoy this comfort food


The fillings with crab meat

Pleasurable Xiao Long Bao. Perfectly done with thin skin and juicy in every bite. Best to have it with vinegar and ginger

Succulent Sweet and sour chicken meat. 

Long beans with minced meat - my favourite

Fried salted egg with pumpkin - Not crisp enough, but somehow aromatic and taste good

Shrimp fried rice

Upset with this fried fish - tasteless

We did not enjoy much inside the stuffy dining environment. Services is just average and our total damage is RM 260 for 7 person. The overall portion is expected to be small and the food quality is still maintain to be good as for now. With the GST implemented, I doubt I will dine in again.

Old Tricycle Charcoal BBQ Yong Tau Foo @ Aman Puri, Kepong

We visited Old Tricycle Charcoal BBQ Yong Tau Foo at their newest outlet in Aman Puri, Kepong. We reached early at 6.30pm, but the staff is just started to put down the tables and chairs. We are seated at the long table, side corner and the staff just opened one air cond. No wonder I am sweating inside. We managed to find our parking just in front of the restaurant. The rain just started and we have problems getting out from the car. No choice but to take turns. My girl is throwing tantrum tonight (probably lack of sleep) and screaming all the way. Luckily, it was just us inside the restaurant being the first customer who dine in. The staff also smiling looking at her and I am sure her voice irritates who ever comes in..haha.. I am so used to it. To calm her down, I bring her to the front to snap some pictures and she followed me to pose at the mural and the trishaw.

Shanghai theme 50's 60's  deco, with old bricks wall and hanging pictures. The light bulbs in those days.

Actual pictures from the owner family



Fry onion soya sauce Chee Cheong Fun (RM 3.90) 

A must have - Chee Cheong Fun soaked in Curried gravy and the condiments of chewy fried Pig Skin & crunchy Dried Shrimp (RM 3.90). The same version that I have tasted at Taman Desa outlet. 

Enjoying my hot pumpkin barley
Outdoor seats with BBQ facilities for those who wish to BBQ themselves

We can ride on the trishaw that are placed near to the restaurant entrance which represent Old Tricycle theme.

Another beautiful mural 

Traditional oldies mug - from left is warm water, pumpkin barley and chrysanthemum red tea


Crispy fried foo pei and a bowl of fishball + taufu. We ordered additional rice too.

Barbecued Yong Tau Foo set for 4-5 pax priced at RM 48. The 25 pieces is Inclusive of brinjal, bitter gourd, lady finger, taufu, chili, fish paste, streaky bacon pig skin with fish paste, streaky bacon with capsicum fish paste and etc. All are prepared fresh and BBQ outside by the staff.

My boy is turning around the bicycle wheel..at least something to keep him accompany, and then he started to walk around the place


It's fun to bring my family to a new eatery places with those nostalgic decorations and the impressive wall painting -reminds much of my parents in law in their old days. The food is simple and delicious

I wish I could take more picture with hubby next time, but as usual with the naughty kids around, we need to take turns to enjoy our meal.

U-Cafe @ Sungei Wang Plaza Kuala Lumpur ( Invited Food Tasting Session)

We attended the recent Food Tasting event organized by Open Snap at U-Cafe @Sungei Wang. We are being introduced for their new menu that will be available in the month of April. Usually, I do drop by here for lunch set and today I have the opportunity to tried out their other sumptuous menu that features mostly Local Asian cuisines.  We started off with the appetizers. Wonderfully platted at the semi buffet counter with chicken skewers, cold desserts, fruits, and fresh mint drinks.








Alfresco dining atmosphere

Glad to be here meeting up with new faces of the foodies

U-Cafe signature platter. I was looking at the menu price RM 30.90.Worth it? I don't think so. The platter is just the common fried item such as french fries, wedges, fried chicken meat, fish and vegetables rolls.

We continue with the salad and salmon fillet with mango slices. Appetizing


Here comes the main course. In total I have counted, we have almost 12 dishes of main course.. That was really impressive and we are looking at each other each time the main course is served to our table..Are we able to finish it all??


Scallops and teriyaki chicken pasta

It looks like the 'dancing' fish which I recalled from my food review in Brisik Restaurant - specializing in Indonesian food.


Hazelnut Latte was pretty good
 





Chicken Chop

Huge size of the grilled salmon

Thai Pineapple fried rice

The local favorite - Chow Kuey Teow

For spicy lovers - Curry Laksa
Butter prawn

It seems to be never ending. Here is another main course. And Finally we have the last dish for tonight food sampling - Soft shell crab with stir fried mee hon.

I love the food here especially the curry laksa, butter prawn, chicken chop and pineapple fried rice,



We have a really special dining session and thanks to Open Snap and U-Cafe for their great hospitality,
