After our previous visit to PHOP where my friend was busying eyeing on my Brussel. This time, he called me very early in the morning and grabbed me out for PHOP, to have a revenge.

… my cup of Vienna Coffee. First time I had coffee without putting sugar in it. It was just good enough by drinking along with the whip cream.

… since it was still early, I decided to go light on my breakfast. I ordered a pancak with bananas on it.

… while my friend would eventually order the Brussel.

It was rather exceptional that pancake house serves such nice coffee. Unlike those el-cheapo highly acclaimed coffees from Hollys Coffee or Coffee Bean alike, this cup was a gem. The fragrance and how well the sweetness in whip cream is compatible with the coffee itself, made it a perfect cup of coffee to have for breakfast. My pancakes was acceptable, just like how I like it, light. On the other hand, my friend was complaining that, Brussel wasn’t as nice as he’d have expected it to be. He said his last pancake from last PHOP visit was much better.

Well, what can I say? He is … that kind of person what.

I never knew what Wendy’s was, when I heard my colleague, HL mentioned about it. All I knew was it’s just a name to me. One fine evening, I found out that Sunway Pyramid has it and I had some shopping to do, so I decided to go there for dinner.

… different kind of wrapping. To keep warmth, perhaps?

… my shrimp burger.

… the first time I heard of shrimp burger was from my colleague, on her trip to Hong Kong. She said she had it at KFC there.

The shrimp patty can’t get any better, as long as it doesn’t stink. I don’t think you’d ever get fresh shrimps in your burger. Even if the shrimps were fresh, after all the frying, I don’t think it holds anymore freshness values in it. The queue was moderately long. At around 8pm, the place was packed with people. I almost given up, but I was hungry, so I still go and queue for it.

… bought some fruits after my dinner.

Bought some plums and guava. The guava, it sucked. Despite it was fresh, the content was dry, powdery form. Not even anything close to the kind of guava that I expected. The plums were nice though. They were really sweet and cheap too! 8 for RM10 only, and my guavas were RM8 for 3! Ouch!

There are many Nasi Kandar shops all over KV, but to find those that has nice nasi kandar, along with cleanliness is not as easy as you might think. Many loves the Kayu Nasi Kandar, originated from Penang. Even the Pelita is starting to steal some limelight from Kayu. But my favourite is still Restoran Saji, at SS2.

… I was lucky that they still have papadum left on that day.

I decided to order something out of the norm, which is the squids. My usual recipe would be to ask for the kuah campur (mixed gravy). They are already enough for me to finish the rice, plainly just like that. The gravy at Saji was really nice, which kept me going there again and again and again.

Dinner @ A&W, KT

Posted: 2008-08-29 by W in Dinner, Drink, Eat, Halal, Non-vegetarian

After our lunch, we went to McDonald’s for some sundae and decided to sit there to kill time, while watching Budget on national TV. We stayed for about 2 hours before decided to walk more than 3km to the nearest A&W outlet. Pity me, my left leg was hurt from the coral’s cut, that HL some more said wanna take the longer route so that he could watch the sea from the beach! Blasphemy!

… I was seated facing the sea with my set meal.

… a double beef burger, because I was hungry already from all the walking.

This was by far the biggest A&W outlet that I’ve visited before. I don’t think there is any A&W outlet in KV that is 1/2 as big as this one. Besides, this 1 was facing the sea, with balcony seats. Very good for couples to spend time there, enjoying the sea breeze and maybe take a walk on the beach*.

*Provided if they don’t get robbed with a knife at point blank.

Our breakfast was quite a while ago and we’ve got whole day to kill before our flights back to KV. So our driver Mr Foo brought us to the Chinatown of Kuala Terengganu for lunch.

… I had a big steamed bun, out of dunno-what-to-eat.

… HL ordered a fried lobak, which was finished mostly by the vultures.

… doesn’t look appetizing at all. Where’s my slice of hard boiled egg? I eat big steamed bun all because of the rewarding quarter of hard boiled egg and they deprive me of it!

… unconventional size of cup.

The big steamed bun was so-so, but the fried lobak was quite nice. The tea was normal though. Luckily, I wasn’t a resident there, else I had to endure big steamed buns without a quarter of hard boiled egg!

Our last meal on the island.

… nasi lemak mix with western style, a chicken ham.

… I like my sunny side up with runny yolk.

… finally, my soy sauce is here.

… see the pepper? Otai burger stall uses the same pepper for their burgers.

… DC took a total of 6 croissant. He said they were very nice. He managed to stuff 5 in while LGJ stolen 1 of them.

The nasi lemak has sweet sambal, so I wouldn’t comment much about it.

A piece of advice, nasi lemak with chicken ham is a NO GO!

The stuff that we had on the 2nd night at Perhentian Island.

… it’s more toward malay traditional food than western.

Today, the compatible choices were less, but the grilled fish was nice. The sambal belacan was even better. I have had to go for 2nd and 3rd round of grilled fish just for the sake of having the sambal belacan. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take any photos because it was already too dark.
