Four Seasons Restaurant - Empire Subang

Where else lunch can be for my one hour lunch break except at the nearby shopping malls. Empire Subang definitely is currently trending high because of the number of eateries, therefore I was back to this my familiar ground (Pasta Zanmai, Di Wei & La Bodega). However,  for whatever reason, I have not dined in Four Seasons Restaurant before, sure enough, there is always a first time. We arrived during this peak lunch time and sat outside across the basement car park. From the menu featuring quite a wide selection of Chinese dishes, my lunch companion ordered the 3 Rice Combo (2x),  Szechuan style "Mapo" Tofu, Two Style Kai Lan, Custard Steamed Bun and for drinks, Lemon Coke and Hong Kong Milk Tea.

Dishes arrived almost at one go, we first tackled the 3 combo rice - rice with roasted chicken, duck and pork and these, I mean the meaty items, were superbly juicy and tender, more importantly, who won't blow hot air on the sinful crispy skin. I didn't care much for rice, which was pushed aside, I certainly tucked into the juicy meat after dipping into the spicy dip.  

We then took a breather by sipping into the drinks, thereafter we tucked into Szechuan style "Mapo" tofu and two style Kai Lan..
Tofu dish served over a small flame in a wok was nice as well - soft gooey tofu, lightly simmering in a thick oozy sauce. The two style kai lan was quite interesting - shredded deep fried kai lan atop with fried anchovies and tucked below it were large kai lan stems. Between both, crunchy fried kai lan was easily nibbled,  whereas the stems, though soft, biting-pulling was a little messy.    

Upon clearing these dishes, we then helped ourselves to cream custard bao, basically steamed flour buns tucked with creamy custard filling, quite a nice sweet dessert for a such a meal.  

Within an hour lunch was over, after settling the bill for RM88.00, it was a rush back to work.

  6. Nice write up, Nava! I especially liked the narrow seating arrangement of the restaurant, more like an American Diner look and feel!
    The good thing about any restaurant outside India is that, the meat or veggie portions are too generous, even cheese/butter spread for that matter, is generous enough!! Love that! Cream Custard Bao looks very attractive :)
    Also heard of Hong Kong Milk Tea, much like our Indian chai!!

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.
