A Taiping guy personal rants and Malaysia Food blog
That’s a new western restaurant nearby my working area, sometimes I’m feeling exhaust and boring in thinking what to eat during lunch time, I’ve been working in my current company for 4 years already and I almost tried all the restaurants and foods nearby my office. Since there is a new western food restaurant named Vary Pasta, so we gave it a try. The restaurant looks clean, and tidy, it gave me a feel of comfortable when I first stepped in the restaurant. After a tired working morning, of course we must had our lunch in comfortable environment. The waitress and waiter in the restaurant are friendly too.
The restaurant serves western foods, such as sausage, salad, chop, steak, pasta, soup and etc. This was my first time having lunch there, so I can ordered whatever food. So the waitress recommended us their set lunch, a worthy set lunch. There was 2 or 3 set lunch, I picked one of them. The set lunch contained of one main course (Chicken chop with spaghetti, spaghetti carbonara with chicken ham or pan fried fish fillet with butter rice) , one appetizer (Salad or Soup), ice cream and drinks (Herbal tea or Barley). So I’d chosen Chicken Chop with Spaghetti as my main course, salad as my appetizer, barley ice as my drinks and ice cream.
Sometimes I didn’t know what else I can had for my lunch because I’d tried all the restaurant nearby my office, so I always repeated and ate the same thing. But Tin Kee Duck Rice stall in Kun Kee Kopitiam was what I always ate for my lunch. That’s one of my favourite duck rice and char siew rice. I rarely ate in the Kopitiam, usually I just took away and ate in the office. Usually I ate duck mix with char siew rice, I love the crispy duck skin and the taste of the char siew. Besides these, the sauce especially for char siew is definitely delicious! They also sell chicken rice, but the famous one is duck and char siew. It should be a Hong Kong style duck rice, I just love it.
Recently I was too busy with my personal stuff and didn’t have time to update my food blog, it’s because I’ve to help my gf’s brother in his wedding. I became his “brother” on last Sunday morning, it was quite fun and I enjoyed it.
Weeks ago, I had my tea time at Sushi Zanmai in One-Utama. Sushi Zanmai and Pasta Zanmai is the same restaurant but they separate to two, Sushi Zanmai sells Sushi, while Pasta Zanmai sells Pasta. I’ve dined in Pasta Zanmai for few times before, I love their Chicken Cheesy Pasta and Teri Chicken Pizza. So, I went to Sushi Zanmai for my tea break, we’d tried some of the Sushi only. They have other outlets in The Gardens and Sunway Pyramid as well.
* Una Tama, Inari & Tuna Salad – I simply like the Una Tama, it consists of unagi & Omelette. The Inari Sushi consists of sweet beancurd, not too sweet and quite nice.
I have been eating Pan Mee in Bao Bao Pan Mee Restaurant for quite many times, I have yet to take some photos for the food because I had no digital camera in the past. The previous time I wrote a review for this restaurant because I got featured in the 8TV Ho Chak!, we were so shock to see them there while we stepped in the restaurant, it was a good memory.
The Bao Bao Pan Mee Restaurant is managed by a few youngsters, they have an outlet in Cheras too. With the slogan of ‘Same Pan Mee, but different style“, it attracts lots of pan mee lover to try all their different style of pan mee. Not to mention too much about the restaurant since I have stated it in my previous post, we just go on the photos and food reviews.
KFC has launched their new product which was Zinger Tower Burger few days ago. I just went to One-Utama yesterday and bought a gift to give my gf’s parents because I was going to her house for a CNY dinner tonight. So, we have bought gift and I suggested to take our lunch at KFC since I have yet to try the Zinger Tower Burger because it looked delicious. Mc.Donald had Prosperity Burger and KFC had Zinger Tower Burger, but of course both burger had their own recipe and different taste.
Choong Kee Kampar Claypot Chicken Rice Restaurant is a restaurant that located in Damansara Jaya which is just nearby The Mage Cafe. As the restaurant name, it sells Kampar style Claypot Chicken Rice. Before this Choong Kee Restaurant opened, it’s just a small food stall insides a Kopitiam named Kun Kee Kopitiam which is just located the same row with the current Choong Kee Restaurant. They just opened at night time when they were still a food stall in Kun Kee Kopitiam, after the renovation in Kun Kee and they have finally opened a own shop for their own Kampar Claypot Chicken Rice.
Other than serving Craypot Chicken Rice, they have few different types of fresh vegetables and steamed soup which you can take it as side dishes. For the Claypot Chicken Rice, you can have a normal claypot chicken rice which consists of little chicken and little sausage, you can add egg, chicken, salty fish and sausage. I used to eat the Claypot Chicken Rice with Salty Fish and Sausage (We call it as “Lap Cheong”).
Other than this, the special of Choong Kee Claypot Chicken Rice is they cook the Claypot chicken rice with oldish style which is cooked by using charcoal burn. It’s difficult to get those Claypot Chicken Rice that cook with Charcoal burn style because most of them are using gas now. By using charcoal burn style, it keeps the original taste for the Claypot Chicken Rice, it makes the Claypot Chicken Rice more nicer than using gas. The restaurant is always full during lunch time and dinner time.
