Fikcles Cafe - Taman Tun, Kuala Lumpur

I thought. I really thought I had it all well planned for the week. But when plans came tumbling down mainly because hand phone mattered the most (Iphone 7), everything else was an unexpected domino effect. Certainly not positively, not for the best and one which literally drained off my energy (Da De Bak Kut Teh). Still, I couldn't possibly ignore neither cancel the rest of the plans for the following week as well. With a list of back to back things in line, I  went ahead to cook  for “close to my heart” friend (Karaikudi Kozhi Kuzhumbu/Chicken Curryand later, shopping for a couple of hours to gear up for the family wedding.  

The next morning, despite really struggling to wake up, I somehow managed to pull myself together for the event at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. However, since I was early, in fact an hour plus earlier, fueling some food to boost my energy level logically was a wise decision. Thus, between the spoilt for choice rows and rows of eateries in a presumably high end area, I opted for the least crowded one. 
Yea, I am not at all a crowd pleasing person anymore, Fikcles is a comfortable homey café located across the busy as ever main road. Also, noted as a well-designed space, I couldn't help but admire those modern and in-trend wall decors. 
Honestly, I actually felt a whole lot better after walking in and then sat at the outside dining area while flipping through the menu featuring quite a selection of Asian and Western dishes. Indeed, a good mix of food and drinks, to cut short on what to call for, we opted for the breakfast sets. Mine was the Egg Royale set whereas co-pilot preferred the Mee Rebus that we specifically requested not to include beef. But, since co-pilot didn’t consider much on what if the kuah/gravy is made from beef broth, I didn’t want rock the boat. Sly me yea!

Be that may or may not be, food and drinks arrived within the next 10 minutes or so. Favored as a traditional Western breakfast,Egg Royale was a quality tummy filling-meal. Wholeheartedly accepted, I forked into the oozy runny eggs atop the thinly sliced smoked salmon, olive ciabatta and tad bit of cilantro lime hollandaise sauce, and happily eat alongside the fresh salad.  
Likewise, co-pilot was contented with the firm yellow noodles drenched in a flavourful thick kuah/gravy with half boiled egg and a slice of lime, garnished with coriander leaves and fried crispy shallots. Finishing off every bit of everything on the plate, he looked up and acknowledged that it was a delectable triple “okay” meal.
Just then as we were almost done with sipping the decent coffee, a pretty easy-to-love red velvet cupcake came by. Complimentary from the house, I enjoyed its not too sweet buttery frosting, but I shall reserve my comments on its slightly dry cake.
That said, I must thank Fikcles Cafe for this nice gesture and their humble customer service from the time we arrived and left as satisfied customers.

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.
