OLE OLE BALI - Sunway Pyramid

Like a permanent fixture at Sunway Pyramid and I trust you won't mind seeing OLE OLE BALI. Somehow, I believe so. Either while you are driving before parking at the basement or whenever you drive past Sunway Pyramid. Me and my reason for dining in Ole Ole Bali. Well, an outing with my close colleague and he wanting to use the 10% discount he was given due to his previous dining in Waterlily Balinese Bistro. Right on. To Ole Ole Bali on this Saturday by beating the rest of the customers for an early as 11.30am lunch. What an admirable ambiance. As if you are in Bali itself and we thereafter, deciding between the wide range of Balinese and Western dishes.

Jin Xuan Hong Kong (Dim Sum), Damansara Jaya

This restaurant takes up a few lots in Damansara Jaya. It is on the same row as Maybank and further down, is the post office. So, getting parking during lunch time on weekdays can be quite a pain. The restaurant is consistently packed during makan hours. Actually, even during off-peak hours, the restaurant was still 50% full – and this is about 3.30pm on a Saturday. You can safely assume that the food is good.

Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant - Teluk Panglima Garang (Selangor)

The every now and then drive which takes you a few miles away for dining out? Quite a nice feeling right? I know. Instead of heading to the same hawkers stalls within were you are residing? What a feeling right? Of course. On this Sunday, we decided to leave behind our familiar Kota Kemuning cocoon for heading towards Pulau Carey. But somehow, maybe just a few kilometres away from Pulau Carey, we spotted Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant. Seemingly like the unexpected. Why not we told ourselves. Into Seri Langat Seafood Restaurant which by then was already swarmed by a good number of customers and more making their way in. Popped up on our table once we sat was Mango Asam Booi Pickle. My-My! What a sour-sweet my mouth pleasure while we were deciding on the dishes. No Menu. Just basically asking and finding out in this coffee shop style, unassuming and no frill seafood restaurant.

Mutton Soup/Sup Kambing

Another round of mutton in soup (Indian Mutton Meatball Soup)? Yes. Obviously right? Why, are you asking me? Honestly, I myself don't have the answer. I just felt like. I just wanted to make an Indian style mutton soup (Mutton ParathalIndian Crab Soup & Crab Curry) and when we speak about Indian style mutton soup on the whole, it must be spices and all things nice, and, also some vegetables swimming alongside tender mutton? Conclusively. Basically, like a curried version (Home Made Curry Mee) and the better the taste once you make a day or two days ahead prior to warming up, even the balance for another meal. Mutton Soup/Sup Kambing! The Indian pride to a delicious hearty mutton soup.

Home Made Curry Mee

Home Made is always the best. Don't you think so? Of course. Anything home made is always the biggest food pleasure. Then again, these days, there are food outside claimed or maybe really, is home made style. I am rather confused actually on how far further should we discuss or take up the food matter about homemade food sold outside. Home made in our house on the other hand is pure, clean and cooked by pouring lotsa love. Basically because, we cook meals for our love ones by considering who eats what, or who don't eat what not. In my house. noodles are our food happiness. We simply adore a piping bowl of mostly soupy noodles. Like this Home Made Curry Mee. A halal version, due to my other half-half does not eat pork. See, I told you? We cook by considering our love ones and what they eat or not? Home Made Curry Mee. Broth a produce of prawn shells and head, and curry paste an amalgamation of our Malaysian ingredients. Power rocker curry (Mutton Parathal & Crab Curry) generously poured over yellow noodles and a fact to a seafood curry mee, garnished with spring onion. Sounds sincerely appetizing right?

Restaurant Super Kitchen Chilli Pan Mee, SS2

Malaysians sure love their chillies – which explains the popularity of chilli pan mee (flat noodles). Restaurant Super Kitchen has grown and now there are now five outlets (three in Selangor and two in KL).My first encounter with chilli pan mee was at their KL branch (off Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman) and yes, the chilli numbed all taste sensation for a while. You sweat. You get a little teary-eyed. You struggle to finish the meal through the spiciness. And yet, you return for more!

Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon

Tom Yam. I think, we all know what is tom yam? What is tom yam by the way? Tom yam is a Thai paste and not the name of any particular Thai dish mind you. Of course, with tom yam paste, you can coin various types of Thai dishes. Whether you make the paste or you use store-bought tom yam paste. Actually, come to think of it, ready made tom yam paste is quite good. I have tried a few types, of course between these, there are some of my favourites, and overall store bought tom paste is the way to cutting short your time in your kitchen. In fact, store bought tom yam paste showed me the way to this Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon. Fantastic! Once mee hoon is fried alongside the ingredients listed below and tom yam paste, of course the scent of kaffir lime leaves is just so loved by your truly and Tom Yam Fried Mee Hoon. Lemme me repeat again. Fantastic. The Thai style to fried mee hoon
