Kam tong loh to receive these 4 pcs of macarons which were delivered to my doorstep. :)
They were homemade macarons from Maya Sophea (carol tan 012-4181747). Stuffed with various fillings aka choc ganache, rose scented, passionfruit cream, lychee and etc.
Compared to the BBO's version of macarons, these are less sweet and having little fruit bites stuffed within the cream fillings. By looking at the degree of 'shatterness' after one bite, you could know roughly how crunchy or soft the macarons are. I saw the biggest difference in the choc flavour below.
This round is for 2010. Nearly ending already! :) Let me see if there has got any surprise for us?!
Bravo Italia is a trattoria dining establishment thatserves inexpensive and rustic food in a less formal dining atmosphere.
Bruschetta (RM8.80+) -Toasted bread topped with fresh diced tomato, Italian herbs, olive oil and melted cheese.
[My rating 5/10]
The serving size seemed to be larger compared to last time. This bruschetta supposed to be without cheese. The restaurant owner cum chef (Mr. Lim) has modified this to suit local taste especially for those cheese lovers. For me, I still do not know how to appreciate / buy this dish, like last time.
Last week I went to Pappa Rich for two days consecutively. My rating for the food is : 80% beh khi.
Now only I realized I should have appreciated more on Apex @ Queensbay area. :)
Pappa Energy Detox Tea with Honey (RM5.90+) , Teh C Hot (RM2.80+)
It's basically like ceylon tea + honey. I do not know what is the DETOX about? For me, it tasted pretty weird and bitter at the first sip. I wonder where did the honey taste go?
The Teh C was milder than Old Town one.
Pappa Curry Laksa Special with Foo Chok (RM9.90+), Pappa Curry Laksa (RM8.90+)
TOOOOOOOOOOOO lemak liao! Really like eating / drinking curry. This was stated at the first page of the menu therefore I thought it must be something like their signature dish uh?! Oh no......I swear I'll never order this again, even if it's given FOC.
The last round of set dinner I had at Salsas was back in 2007 .
After having an unpleasant dining experience in The Mansion 32, I decided to give this a try last Wednesday. I noticed that the set dinner menu did not change much since 2007. It is basically the same as last time.
Nah, the only difference I could notice was this. The cloth wrapping the bread! Haha!
Set Dinner @ RM32++
Seafood platter top with basil salsa on cucumber salad. .(more......)
I didn't get to capture the most successful attempt because that's the moment that I couldn't wait any longer, ate all up in no time! :)
Ingredients : yellow noodles, vege (cheng choy or siew pak choy), sam chan bak, prawns, fishballs and squids.
My cooking sequence : sam chan bak, squids, prawns, fish balls, vege, yellow noodles. Simmer the yellow noodles under low heat so that they turn slight plump. [Yellow noodles need not be rinsed under water for too long, just a pass or two will do, that will maintain the saltiness, later no need to put much salt/soya sauce]
Oh no...I couldn't see the gravy in these few shots leh.
Greedy hor? Put so many ingredients!
Ya, here it is! I like my fried mee to be moist!(more......)
I do not know why Soon Long is getting more customers than the unit beside it. Whenever I go there during weekends, the crowd is can be seen very obvious at Soon Long, almost full house all the time BUT not its neighbour. Can somebody tell me? :)
What I like the most of this stall is I NEED NOT ASK FOR TOPPING UP THE SOUP. :) They are very alert, always ready to top upfor you when you are halfway eating.
I like its yam rice for being fragrant with big chunks of yam.
This round I managed to order all the dishes that I think which are value-for-money yet delicious, unlike previous visit.
The day I went fell on the last few days of Nine Emperor Gods festival (九皇爷), therefore the customers coming for lunch were not many. Hmm.....next time got to consider this sort of period to visit Hai Onn! :)
The serving size of dishes served here although small, ngam ngor hao mei!
Sambal fried kangkung - This round we were served 5 pcs of prawns with 'countable' stalks of eng chai. Ha! 妹仔大過主人婆hor?！ :)
Chicken Chop. I believe this one is A LOT BETTER than the pork chop loh.
Hainanese Fish Curry. Need not elaborate further, a must order! :)
Some simple homecook dishes during my sick days. RM10 kao tim for two meals!
豆干炒蒜那 (Tao Kua Char Suan Na) / Fried Beancurd with Leeks
I wanted very much to learn how to cook as similar as the Hock Chuan Heong (福泉香) one. Well, don't laugh har, you judge lah my standard! Ei khi boh?! :) (more......)
It has been ages since I last stepped into Old Town.
Wow! New posh menu with lots of dishes introduced. Egg noodles, steamed bread series, chicken rice/ Hainanese chicken chop rice, steamed rice series, roti canai series and etc. New drinks are available too (cendol series & etc). Hurray!
White Coffee (RM3.50++) at Old Town Queensbay.
Nasi Lemak Special (RM7.90++). This one exists in the old menu. (more......)
