Chikuma~ Chikuma* Chikuma!

I was impressed by Chikuma when it was first opened back in 2007 . During its opening promotional month, every item in the menu was so cheap that it created a stir of 'hoohah' in our circle of friends.

Now it has moved from Gembira Parade, Island Glades to Sunway Tunas. You wouldn't know how glad I was when I first spotted it (which in actual has been operating for 1 mth long, OMG!). It brought me surprise during my first visit there!

The interior decoration is just plain simple.

Set Meal Menu. Price ranges from RM13.80+ to RM22.00+. (Scroll to the bottom for details)

Sashimi and Sushi.


Ala Carte Menu is also available but not captured here.

Maguro Sashimi (RM22.00+) . 6 slices of fresh tuna. We were taken by surprise to see the thickness. Its one slice is almost equivalent to 2 slices of other restaurants.

My surprise came from this Tempura Set (RM17.80+)

Impressive with thin crunchy tempura coating ! I couldn't have enough of them.

Other than 3 pcs of prawns and 1pc of red carrot, I was impressed by its Onion! Vegetable leaf! and the last unexpected one is FISH! Mind you, the fish....I would say that it is L size. (more.....)

AustinChase Seafood Marinara with Iced Tea


Seafood Marinara with Iced Tea (RM16.90 nett)

Iced Tea. (I guess you better order coffee lah as this is not a good choice)

Pretty 'small' serving of seafood marinara. Not too sourish, it's pretty OK though.

Other than prawns, I didn't see any other seafood.(more.....)

松花江肉骨茶海鲜煮炒 (Song River Bak Kut Teh and Seafood)

早市松花江肉骨茶海鲜煮炒 (Song River Bak Kut Teh and Seafood) @ Gurney Drive

It's been ages since I last paid visit to Song River for its breakfast bak kut teh. I wonder is the taste still the same like years before?

I ordered one claypot with additional mushroom and button mushroom (which were written as " 多香,多毛") (ha!) and 'fu chuk'.

One claypot serving two persons is RM16. Fu chuk was charged additional RM2.

I found that the soup base is no longer the same. The first pot with a lot of vege ingredients of course would be affected, but then the subsequent bowls of soup being added also not the same like last time anymore. :(

Last Wednesday I went to Yus's farewell lunch at Bangkok Tomyam. *Wah, so fast got any candidate already!*

Two styles of fish were served. Either the sour spicy fried type or ......

the steamed sour spicy style.

Hardwicke House Buffet Lunch

Hardwicke House Buffet Lunch @ Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah

We went on last Saturday. Price per head is RM22++ (RM25.30 nett).
The spread of food is pretty similar to what being offered in Buffet Dinner except tandoori dishes and BBQ.

Reminder : Sitting inside the dining hall is cooler than sitting at the private /VIP corner.

The food quality is average only. The only thing I enjoyed most is the long hours of sitting there reading my novel with some food to munch along.

Salad bar (more.....)

Japin's Fried Garlic Rice is GOOD!

Japin @ Queensbay

Shichimi Teriyaki Don (Spicy Teriyaki Chicken with Rice) RM12.80 + RM1.80 (for adding soup + tea)

I know several guys who will choose no other dishes but THIS whenever they visit Japin! (Circled in red is 'Beh Khi" item - miso soup)

Cyasyu Cyahan (Fried Garlic Rice) RM6.80+RM1.80 (for adding soup + tea).

I started to appreciate more on this dish after having the garlic rice cooking experience at the Sakae Izakaya .

The fried garlic rice here is fragant, big in serving and I especially like it for being non-oily, at least during the moment I eat! :) (more.....)

The Chicken Rice Shop - Oh no! Why like that one?!

The Chicken Rice Shop @ Tesco E-Gate

None of us has visited The Chicken Rice Shop for dinner session before, only for lunch. Therefore I did not know whether this 'scenario' is a norm for dinner time or .......?

I left this restaurant with disappointment after paying RM31.90.

Single Chicken Set - RM13.99

Steamed Chicken

Roast Chicken

Ipoh Bean Sprouts. Ipoh?! Nah, this is way too far from IPOH's one.

Pepsi + dessert. Add RM1 to change to non-carbonated drinks. The dessert is nothing much but nata de coco jelly.

The chicken is what we called as "Hai Sup Sup "(cantonese) !
Proof 1# - all breast meat (more.....)
