I had to make very sure that the set they offering was of single sausage and not twin sausages, like how I was tricked into ordering the set last time. The sausage tasted quite good but TSL said it was very salty. The cheese on the inside was mostly melted as I slice them up. I guess they overheat the sausage. The mashed potato was so huge that I could only eat half of it. There were abundance of corn kernels while the bread has shrank in size, though it was turned into garlic bread, which I think was a better idea. The drink was not nice though.

DL was so reluctant to go home as he was desperate to shoot something with his new toy. In the end, we ended up in KTZ for a drink. The place was crowded, luckily not the same for the parking. We managed to park nearby and walked for about 1 minute to the shop. Anyway, parking our asses proved to be a challenge instead.

As I was finishing my sai mai lou, the bottom part was very sweet. I guess the sugar water just sink down further and further.

The rice here was exactly the same kind of chicken rice that I first had when I just came to KV. It’s rice soaking with margarine. But I’d prefer non-margarine rice instead, one which cooked with chicken soup/essence. The roasted chicken was abomination. It was worse than Mooi Mooi‘s roasted chicken. While the steamed chicken was rather ok. There were plenty of sweet soya sauce at the bottom of the plate and the sesame oil was free of charged. The chicken meat was soaking in it. The intestines were pretty tasteless. MH and DL said, just eat it for the springy feeling. I guess this is what you call a genuine KV chicken rice’s style.

Went to dinner with ALGJ and LGFL. Managed to drag MSF out as well since our destination was nearby to her office. Parking was easy as I was able to spot 2 empty spaces just outside the food court.

I’ve always thought the nicer ABC stall was the one at the corner, but MSF told me that the usual nice one that she usually has was from the stall where I used to have my cendol previously. It was pretty nice, especially the brown sugar’s taste. Though I wished it was less sweet but there is rarely any ABC that is less sweeter than this. The shaved iced was very fine, which melts evenly in the mouth and it wouldn’t lacerate the tongue as well.

I didn’t particularly liked the fried tofu but it wasn’t bad either. The outer layer was very crispy and the content didn’t spill as well. Taste wise was nothing to shout about. On the other hand, cuttlefish with water spinach was pretty amazing. The similar type of food that I have everywhere else has runny sauce, but this one, the sauce was thick and there were generous amount of peanut powder. The spinach didn’t watered down the sauce either. I guess it was properly dried after being poached. Worth coming back for as I don’t find anything similar to this anywhere else.

... ALGJ said the mee jawa here was nice. I didn't try it the last time, so this time I can't miss it anymore.

Despite how nice ALGJ said the mee jawa was, I was glad I didn’t order this the previous time I was here. Not that it sucked, but it wasn’t nice either. There were plenty of bean sprouts, almost as much as the noodle. The gravy was nothing awesome, though the crispy crackers were something to crave for.

Dave’s Deli wouldn’t be my choice of lunch, usually. But today was exceptional since they all frowned upon the offering from Esquire Kitchen for the day. I had a vegetarian sandwich, seeing that it should conforms to my strict diet, except for the bread. The sandwich was exceptionally good being meatless. The bread was quite nice and easy to cut up due to the crispy crust. The inside was stuffed with tomato slices and pineapples, webbed in melted cheese. Tasted pretty nice. I finished 3/4 of it. I was already full. It’s RM11 each though. With additional RM1, you could get the tuna sandwich.

AC told me about the nice fried rice at Canai Cafe. So tonight, after waiting for him to reach my office for so many hours, we finally made it to Canai & Such Cafe in SS15. Previously, before there was this shop, it was called Ravi’s Corner, Canai & Such. Located on the green field not too far from the current spot. The place was famous for its nasi lemak back then where Steven’s Corner was still at its prime.

I admit, I had my reserve on how nice the fried rice could be when AC told me about it. As I’ve never actually tasted a really nice fried rice in Klang Valley, ever. It took them a while before the fried rice were placed on our table. The fragrance was so good, I was immediately hungry again. The taste was good, it could easily be the best fried rice I’ve had in Klang Valley, after all these years. AC’s fried rice with lamb was good too. I’d definitely want to have his next time. The tom yam though, wasn’t that great. I preferred Vicchuda‘s tom yam, which wasn’t sweetened like this one.

A place that I’ll definite revisit for its fried rice. The good thing about this place was, it’s near to my office.

I asked KUMA out for dinner tonight. I told her there’s a Geylang Kopitiam in USJ9 that I wanted to give it a try. She agreed to tag along together with WWS. When we were there, KUMA saw this chilli pan mee and she exclaimed that she wanna have this for dinner instead. The place was packed with people. Fortunately, there were still some tables left for us. After placing our orders, people started queueing up at the door front. I guess we were lucky that we were early.

I still don’t grasp the idea of torturing oneself with the spiciness of food. The place was packed with people and majority were having the same chilli pan mee (curry pan mee was served too asides from other side dishes). Not sure how many scoops they were having, but 1 scoop was enough to kill WWS. She almost went commit suicide. KUMA on the other hand wanted to challenge TSL. She asked how many scoops did TSL had last time when I brought her to the original Kin Kin’s chilli pan mee. Ended up, KUMA gave up on her bowl of noodle after putting only 2 scoops of chilli. I had to forcefully finished mine though.

The Thai style bean curd was quite nice. The Thai sauce was prominent and not runny. Plenty of sesame seeds, as if they were free of charge and a layer of peanut powder. With some cucumber slices. I didn’t know those brownish powder were peanut until I had a second piece. Say bye bye to my strict diet. Anyway, I finished all the anchovies in my bowl of noodle.
