Buta Shogayaki RM22 and free a glass of green tea (hot or cold)

Oxtail Soup 牛尾湯 (RM16.00+) - Malaysian style oxtail soup served with garlic bread. Clear soup base. I will appreciate more if the serving could be larger.

Oriental Chicken 東方風味煎雞腿 (RM25.00+) - fried with aromatic spices, yellow ginger, honey and galangal. This one is far better than the set lunch below.

Set Lunch : Terriyaki Salmon (RM24.00+)

Gold Coast Restaurant (金海岸餐館) 值得一試!

Gold Coast Restaurant @ Island Park (青草巷).

On the way down to Dewan Sri for PFS concert, BZ who likes to eat chu char brought us to Gold Coast for dinner.

We didn't realize there are actually set meals offered here until ...

"Jup! Aunty! We want to change, ei sai boh?" *Grin~~Luckily boleh!*

Value Set Meals

We changed to order value set (RM28 set) and top up with additional fish dish.

Soup of the day is Shanghai Chai Chicken Soup. We love the milky soup, not too sour, ngam ngam hoe!

Beancurd with Abalone Sauce. We finished this dish the fastest!

Why my Ice Ice Noodle like this one leh?!

Ice Ice Noodle is an icy noodle with crab sticks, cucumber, sausage and egg - one of the signature dishes at Tutti Frutti .

In the past I have always been impressed by the dish presentation of this Ice Ice Noodle until recently....

I was SHOCKED when seeing this dish, nearly heart-attacked(!) oh. *I am comparing this with the one back in ancient time @ BJ*

This is the original photo shot used in the menu , the restaurant's wallpaper and website.

This is the dish being served in front of me. LOL!(more.....)

Soba Yoshi new menu looks KENG!

Soba Yoshi @ Krystal Point

It's been ages since I last stepped into Soba Yoshi. I couldn't recall what are the reasons (until reaching end of the meal here).

I had a high-schoolmate-gathering with three ladies recently and guess what?! What impressed me the most is its new menu.

Two of us who arrived early flipping the menu from front till back, back till front..... repeatedly for more than 15 minutes and still we were indecisive of which to order. The menu is simply too attractive with great photos illustration, it has far more choices if compared to last time! MORE affordable price for set too (yeah, last time NOT)!

Appetizer served is s-a-u-s-a-g-e-s?! What?! Ahem.... *shrugged*

Chawan Mushi served in bento set. Good texture with big slices of mushrooms.

Tempura Soba & Temaki - hot noodles with mix tempura & handroll (RM18.00+)


Soba Yoshi Bento
- its signature bento! (RM58.00+). I believe this worths the price if being compared to that pathetic EQ bento set. :)

Soba Yoshi Bento consists of : tempura, unagi, shitake yasai itame, assorted sashimi & sushi, inari or cold soba, served with chawan mushi, miso shiru and dessert.

Succulent shitake mushroom!

Crunchy Tempura!

Dave's Deli 30% off with disappointment

Dave's Deli @ Queensbay

The banner said "30% OFF for Mon-Thu only, ALL DAY LONG".

I have had lunch at Dave Deli for several times before and I found it pretty ok, MHBP lah since it's far cheaper compared to Kenny Rogers and Nandos nearby.

This time, somemore ALL DAY LONG. Dinner also can get 30% woh!

Quarter roasted chicken is normally @ RM13.90. With 30% off, it only costs you RM9.73 nett.

BUT......What I got from this 30% off is DISAPPOINTMENT.

Chicken is CHICKEN. Gravy is GRAVY. Kao hmm mai loh!

Whenever ordering more than 1 plate, there bound to have some gonna take the chicken wing with whole chunk of breast part. (not shown in this pic though) :(

Japin Set Meal

Japin @ Queensbay Mall

Japin evolves from a restaurant having lots of tong shui (here ) when it first opened, became more expensive with less tong shui variety, and now, perhaps it's the third generation of menu?! with more reasonably-priced set meals offered.

My last visit to Japin was actually 2 yrs ago at Japin (again?) , a rather disappointing one.

Hancha Setto (Fried Rice & Syoyu Ramen Set) RM16.80+

Kimchi, mashed potato, soup ramen, fried rice, salad and fruit. Rate ? SO SO.

Kimuchi Cyahan Bento (Kimuchi Fried Rice Set) (RM13.80+) . This set comes with gyozo (fried dumpling). Again, SO SO neh!

When this set was served, the gyozos were actually served 'upside down' one. I got to flip them by myself.

Tutti Frutti Set Lunch (Weekdays)

Tutti Frutti Set Lunch Meal (Weekdays only) @ Tesco Extra , Sungai Dua.

Oh....Now only I realized the Set Lunch here is actually a separate menu from Set Dinner /Weekend Set Lunch (which you could find here at Tutti Frutti Drunken Chicken is still very trademark-ed! )

No additional service charges nor government tax.

This price is for WEEKDAYS only.
Set Lunch + Drink of your choice : coke, tea, coffee, fruit juice of the day.
Set A : Le Chic Noodle + Drink = RM9.80
Set B : Nutty Noodle + Drink = RM9.80
Set C : Drunken Chicken Rice + Soup + Drink = RM11.90
Set D : Drunken Chicken Noodle + Soup + Drink = RM11.90
Set E : Black Pepper Spaghetti + Soup + Drink = RM12.90
Set F : Sizzling Lemon Chicken + Soup + Drink = RM12.90
Set G : Cafe De Tutti Spaghetti + Soup + Drink = RM13.50
Set H : Seafood Cheese Bake Rice + Soup + Drink RM13.50
Set I : Mexi Chicken Ham Spaghetti + Soup + Drink = RM13.90

Soup - No, this is not what we expected but we won't be surprised it's being served so since this is a value meal. The soup is 'instant' type, got it?!

Set I = Mexi Chicken Ham Spaghetti

Set D = Drunken Chicken Noodle. Yup, it's instant noodle. Again, like the rice set, the noodle serving is small if compared to the drunken chicken.

Set C = Drunken Chicken Rice . This time we 'seng muk' already, ADD RICE!

Chopper Board - don't hiam if you are broke :)

Chopper Board @ Queensbay

I guess whenever I am broke, Chopper Board is considered a better choice than the rest if I want to get a cheap+MHBP meal (MHBP=mai hiam beh pai) in a shopping mall. :)

Is it since day one they gonna great you like this "W-E-L-C-O-M-E~~~~~~~~~!!!" (wah..very kawai accending tone, slightly ta lang zhan lah me :) ) whenever they see you stepping into their restaurant?! Or just recently huh?!

I could see that this outlet is handled by all youngsters.

Chopper Soup RM2.60. This is its signature dish but then I always felt that the kang hu kia is sandpapering my throat after swallowing a few spoons.
Black Pepper Chix Rice Set RM6.20. Set comes with a ginseng drink. This is one of the safest dishes to order at the Chopper Board. (Chilli paste is a bit tooo keng for me lah, I got to skip eating it).

I tried to be more daring and it ended up....................

Fish Noodle Soup Set RM7.50. Clear soup with tomato, fish slices and 唯一 instant noodles.
C-h-e-n-g c-h-e-n-g t-e-i loh! I started to appreciate this soup after eating the roti below.
