For goodness cakes, sri hartamas - kids play area

20/8/2017 - Was searching for kids friendly cafe at sri hartamas, and found - for goodness cakes.
The long extended cafe, with the basic furniture and deco set up alright. Kids storm to the mini kitchen play and toy cars and books. They serve pretty good choices of self-made food and drinks.
So for goodness sake! (just for fun) 
Price was okay for an independent cafe. Owners are very friendly, and spontaneous..had a great chat to help you in recommendation, and assisting the parents in attending to child for a while. Having sandwich, quiche, pasta, local nasi lemak. Great drinks and cakes up for choices. Parents can eat with peace while kids playing in the toys area. The food wasn't bad, they are more to comfort food in a cosy cafe.

Lsl family entertainment center, Ampang point

21/8/2017 -
I would say lsl family park on the top floor at Ampang point isn't any branded or fancy big playground, but what I like is that they offer lots of different Electronic transport car, for eg: Choo Choo train, Aeroplane, and spaceship. Some as cheap as only 50 cents a 5 mins ride. There's others play games and normal Electronic car ride but these are the special type.

Longchen toast house Ampang - bread toast, pan mee, nyonya rice


Longchen toast house, second outlet at Ampang (1st outlet at Cheras).
The attractive logo and the name 'longchen' of the toast house comes from the surnames of the founders - Long & Chen.

They really did surprised me as I thought the toast cafe was a franchise bought from Taiwan or hk, but it was 100% born in Malaysia. 


Bright lights, white furniture, a little garden feel wall decor, and logo is catchy.

Susan the supervisor tells me everything here is handmade from scratch. My orders:
  • Local Ipoh coffee, a different sip than the normal milk coffee.

      
Famous toast kaya butter. Using waffle toaster, creating a different appeal of the normal bread toast. Loving the toast smell and crispy bread sides.


  • Pan mee, with a thick broth by surprise. Was so worried that was starch, luckily it isn't. Pan mee soup was well done indeed, making me finishing the soup as well. I believe their pan mee is Hakka style.

Others are nyonya rice, focusing on how they cook the nyonya rice. Pan mee and nyonya rice priced at rm6 the lowest,  adding on lots of variations of chicken rendang, curry chicken and many more.

They take supply from 【全馬首一家,開心花甲粉】Happy Noodle, which I blogged about the seafood noodles when I tried it at everyday food court.

Recommend this toast house, as everything is so cheap.

Firemen station visit at sri hartamas

20 Aug 2017 - firemen station visit at sri hartamas ...most of us are first timer and the kids are so excited.
Captain trying at his best to share information and teach the kids emergency number 999, mobile phone 112. When there is a fire, Kids learnt about Cover face and roll left and right, if your body caught fire. Learned to Crawl on the floor away from fire,as when the house is full of smoke, we must crawl beneath it.
 Kids take turn to put on firemen uniform kids version and their helmets.  After that, firemen demo to come down immediately from the pole from top when they receive fire emergency call. Next, a ride on fire engine. Last, water fun from the hose spray. It is an eye opening information sharing as we are not educated to be prepared for fire breakout. 3 years old and above should be good to join the fun! Thanks to mommy Cecilia to make the fire station visitation a success!






Grandmama new outlet at intermark - fish head curry, sang har noodles, durian cendol

19-08-2017: When I tell people about grandmama restaurant, their logo of a grandma riding a bike was such an impact. Strike bright pink and turquoise color on wall and the paper tray on table. TV display showing you food PowerPoint presentation. Food price is affordable, given air-conditioned and comfortable seating.
Definitely a favorite for family and the locals, as they serve you the best local Malaysia Chinese signature dishes. Spacious and they have private room for your function.
My top favorite is fish head curry rm44, fresh fish meat cooked with lots of vegetables in thick gravy nyonya curry with lots of coconut milk, super spicy and savoury. Pairing with a bowl rice was like a umph..missing this fish head curry so much.
Next is the sang har noodle. One big prawn cut into two, egg gravy soup broth with deep fried thin 'sang' noodles.
Never resist their new intro durian cendol too, also the biggest fresh coconut I have ever see in my life. Grandmama new outlet at Intermark.
Was sick but I didn't care, end up I am still sick for more than 1 week, haha!

Pisco bar changkat - cocktails, cebiche, churros

10 Aug 2017 - Now who wouldn't have know Pisco bar? Pisco Bar is one hang out place after work, an eclectic urban chic atmosphere, enjoying outstanding cocktails and live music performances, and dancing with some of the trendiest DJs in town. Well, what's cooking behind Pisco's kitchen, you might be asking. Want to know what's food available at Pisco? Read on to find out more.

The gastrobar's ambience was rugged, mysterious, a little bit of chic style. Funky music all night long, making you sway and move your body, bit by bit. The best part is the staff is well trained on their food and drinks, needless to say, the owners of Pisco, Yvonne, Nico and Leonie are always friendly, mingle around with their guests.












When it comes to bar concept, the only thing to make you simply different is definitely your drinks. Cocktail story of the night. What I like is a mix of local products with a twist.

Pisco Spice RM 36 – Pandan syrup in the drink recipe...oh my my, now who would resist pandan smell? Was wondering why egg white joining this cocktail mix, hmm...

And when you have a hot Chili martini RM 34. Vodka infused with lemongrass, chili, and luckily passion fruit syrup balance the martini, with a little of sweetness and spicy taste.


cebiche

A wow factor for me, my First time trying Peruvian cebiche RM 44. Salad made from fresh raw fish cured in citrus juices, such as lemon or lime. I was like, okay finally raw fish to be prepared in a different way, besides sashimi. I don't think three shots enough for me, as you keep going taking the cebiche. Nico, the marketing person for Pisco, explains the citrus juice mix with the raw fish, creates the name of tiger milk. *Photo provided by Pisco.


Pisco Tapas


When you come to a Spanish bar, it is always great drinks, come along with finger food or light bites. Pisco bar has a great tapas platter for you to choose, but then, you can also choose single tapas as your liking. Pisco Tapas RM68: Comprises deep fried baby squid, Parmigiana, Mushroom croquettes (cream base), Grilled chicken skewers and chorizo lollipop (Spanish cured pork sausage) .

The Pisco parmigiana is basically our take on the eggplant parmigiana and consists of layers of sliced eggplant, cheese and tomatoes, similar to a lasagna preparation method.

Some might find the chorizo a little bit salty, but when you try it as you enjoy your drinks at Pisco, you might feel otherwise.



Well, if you think that only Asian loves to eat rice, think again. Paella has been a family recipe, given a twist of the traditional recipe. For Pisco seafood Paella RM 80, they use mussels, prawns and big squids. However, you need to wait for 1 hour to have the paella ready.  The lemon twist is given a tangerine tasting as you are eating the Spanish seafood rice.


churros
Churros RM 18, famous dessert snack in Spain. Pipe strips of dough with cinnamon seasoning. Pisco version is soft churros. Dip into the sexy hot chocolate at Pisco bar. Sugar rush in the blood, accompanied by live music in the happening gastrobar in Changkat.

Indoor playground at da men usj

13 Aug 2017 - Seems it has become a trend where shopping centres open a small FREE playground for the children.

At Da Men shopping mall, I would say the playground and its equipment are more for baby, toddlers or kindergarten kids. Some simple horse slide and playground slide, good enough for the kids to be happy.




Playground at food court Level 5.



Seems Da Men has 2 floors selling modern concept local food. Another playground slides for your kids to play, as you can enjoy eating. However, level 5 was a warm temperature, as if they didn't switch on the aircond.


Coffee and toast at da men usj - Nasi kunyit, nasi kerabu, roasted chicken thigh, anson chee cheong fun



Spacious, clean design for all the furniture. 

*However, funny on the lighting though. Seems a lot of 'shadow' as you walk in.





21 Oct 2017 - WA! Big chicken thigh marinated for 24 hours, roasted softly like Kenny roger style...best to paired with mashed potatoes and healthy salad, unlike unhealthy carbo or French fries...like the skin that seasoned with pepper and salt, soft juicy meat... My boy finishes everything by himself.


13 Aug 2017 - Coffee toast at da men USJ. Modern local coffee shop, but they do not serve only toast and coffee, but also special local food for eg: nasi kunyit with ayam percik, Ipoh anson Chee cheong fun with radish and vegetable fillings, pandan roti jala, and nasi kerabu! Not many noodles choices, but they have alternative offers like big breakfast, croque monsieur, and English coffee! Fusion? Your taste to decide...can't believe all the foods there are that cheap, it is almost the same price of the food stall price, and free Aircond and comfortable zone, haha!




Finally, a cup of teh tarik, with less sweet milk as per my request.


Croque Monsieur

I ordered the croque monsieur, thought to give a try on something new apart from the local coffee shop menu. However, the bread slices are too thick, and I end up stuffing the carbo, more than me enjoying the ham or the cheese.


chee cheong fun and pandan roti jala


Well, a little mix feeling of here and there. First, the chee cheong fun with the vegetable fillings is splendid, with the pickled green chilli as always. However, matching this with curry chicken? Not really matching right?


And then ah ha, where else I can get roti jala in modern coffee cafe?! But alas, I can taste the pandan powder/ syrup more than the flour texture. Perhaps, the original roti jala would be better, and yes, roti jala match with curry chicken is perfect.





Very good marketing, stopping people to check out what they offer.



Nasi Kunyit with Ayam Percik

I like this. Nasi Kunyit with Ayam Percik. although not much strong fragrance from the kunyit paste, the ayam percik was mild spicy, and soft juicy meat.





As if I can't make the half boiled egg at home right? But well, when we have the right coffee, of course, I will order the half boiled eggs as well!
