SERAI Empire (Empire Subang)

The worthiness. Worthiness in terms of a satisfying meal and I must praise the customer service as well. Customer service personally by the lady owner who made it a point in coming up to us and speaking. Wow! I love this kind of owners who believe in putting customer service as one of their priorities. In fact, not once, but twice. The first time I dined alone and on this day accompanied by other half-half. She also going ahead by suggesting that we must try the cakes. Supposedly or known as one of their households food names as well. We one the other hand politely declined because we were only keen in the mains. Maybe next time? 

How did  we begin and end our food dining experience in Serai? Obviously, the start had to be by taking a look at their menu. Quite a selection, but nothing that will take up much of your time. You will, trust me, like within the next 5 minutes, can decide what to order. 

We ordered and of course, drinks arrived first. Cappuccino? The usual fare with the usual taste. 
"Serai Ice Blended Lychees". Fruity punchiness and I particularly loved the scent of lemongrass. Slushy and the chilled burst which definitely felt good down my throat once I took sips and sips of it. 
Seafood Char Keow Teow. My other half-half forked into the flat rice noodles fried alongside chives/kucai,bean sprouts and fresh prawns, and he smiled. Thumbs up right? Sure.   
Serai platter. The mistake of mine? I completely over looked the fact that this rice dish will be paired with beef rendang. My mistake I admit. Rendang pushed aside, before I tucked into the herbs infused rice, sotong sambal, ayam goreng berempah and achar. Sotong was a slight letdown due  to sweetness, but crispy on the outside and tender meat inside fried chicken was proven. Proven as tastiness and the sweet, sour and spicy achar, what a delight. As for the rice, I would have appreciated another doze of herbs profoundness.
Paying RM64.25 definitely didn't burnt a hole in my other half's pocket. SERAI Empire. Good food, sincere customer service and ambiance, a comfy dining area.

Malaysian Sodhi (Indian Coconut Milk Stew)

Sodhi. Coconut milk infused and laced ( Shrimp Coconut Milk ) Indian coconut stew. In fact, sodhi is the branching of  Masak Lemak ( Vegetarian Malay Spinach Coconut Stew ), or vice-versa or whichever. Sodhi is definitely a popularity amongst the Indians and without a doubt, in my house as well. Sodhi is usually drenched over rice, and eaten alongside side dishes. Trust me, nothing like sodhi soaking or flooding up your rice and then, using your hands for mushy-mushy diving inside eating style. Sodhi. Like, every once a week in my house. In other words, a regularity and it is a dish that can be put up effortlessly. Needless to say, easy cooking and mind you, there are other variances of sodhi too, which I have already shared before ( Malu Kirata , Kiri Hodi , Prawn Sodhi & Cabbage Sodhi ). This latest sodhi? Basically, the humble, basic simplicity, but why a Malaysian Sodhi? Well, Cooked by this “The Crazy Lover” who is a typical, true and true Malaysian, and cooked in her, most o

Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry)

Look at this earthen pot and in it thick, salty, spicy and vibrantly exciting to our palates and eyes  Mochakottai Karuvadu Kulumbu (Field Beans Salted Fish Curry). Like immediately can trigger our hunger throne right? I know. I am definitely a big fan of this Indian style salted fish curry and salted fish on the whole by itself ( Spicy Ikan Bilis Potato , Sambal Tumis Ikan Bilis  &  Sambal Kentang Ikan Asin ), can drive me crazy because I so love saltiness. In fact, every day can be a salted fish meal day for me ( Salted Fish Pickle , Bean Sprouts Salted Fish  & Steamed Pork Salted Fish ). But, I think we all know it? Too much of saltiness and salt can ruin our health? Of course. Then again, there is such a thing as every now and then saltiness as our best friend? How do make this salted fish curry? Nothing much, no major confusing cooking matter ( Salted Fish Bone Curry ). My recipes as always will never cause you to struggle in the kitchen. Ingredients listed below

Restoran Orkid Thai - Section 9, Shah Alam

By the third day, Iphone 7 started showing its dark side. Really a terrifying-horrible shocking discovery, it kept rebooting every now and then for no apparent reason. Obviously, I couldn’t believe my eyes. Duh! Its a brand new phone I paid from  my savings ( Da De Bak Kut Teh Subang Jaya ), never ever have I encountered such a problem with my previous faithfully yours 6 year old Iphone 5. Absolutely heart wracking, I really couldn’t find the time ( Karaikudi Chicken Curry & Fikcles Cafe Taman Tun ) to rush to the service centre amidst the busyness of getting ready for the family wedding and another travel venture ( Oats Fried Prawn s ). Keeping my fingers crossed, hoping it’s just a minor teething problem, I went ahead with shopping nearby Plaza Shah Alam and Plaza Masalam. Accompanied by my niece, we bought a couple of things and then of course, naturally, shopping is more or less regarded as synonymous with hunger throne.
