... my favourite grilled lamb shoulder from Chili's.

Rating: 6.5/10

We ended our day with the last meal at Chili’s Bar and Grill. I told PG that the last time I had lamb shoulder in Chili’s was great. Probably the best I could find in town as Friday’s has forsaken their classic grilled lamb. Hence we ordered a grilled lamb shoulder for the each of us. To my amazement, the portion was quite big for mere lamb shoulder as the last time I had them, the portion was about 2/3 of what I was getting today. I was guessing it could be due to the new opening of this particular outlet in Empire Shopping Gallery. Anyway, the grilled lamb was fantastic until the last bit, but a tad too salty though. In the end, I still couldn’t manage to finish everything on the plate. I was left with some mashed potato, while PG was managed to lick his clean.

After our lunch at Win Soon Cafe, we went to KL for a walk. We wanted to stop by for a drink and PG remembered about this food court in Lot10, which specializes in gathering all the best food from all over KV. When we were there, the place was quite packed and seats were quite scarce. While we were seated by the BKT counter, I went ahead and ordered us 2 bowls of shaved ice from Snow Ice counter.

Out of both the flavours, durian and red beans. I must say I prefer durian more than red bean. I guess the heavy taste on durian is just right to be made into shaved ice. The ice were shaved so finely that they immediately melts in the mouth as you put them in, while remained solid on the outside at room temperate, only slowly melting away.

It was a good experience being there as I’ve never seen such food in KV before. At least now I know where to find them whenever I have cravings for them. Price wise, it was a bit steep for such dessert, but it saves you the convenient, and I bet the rent there isn’t cheap either for the furnishing that Lot10 has put in for the tenants.

PG told me that he has been craving for fish head noodles lately. I do not know why was that. My only guess was probably because he hasn’t been having “women” for quite some time. I guess having fish head noodle is healthier than the other type of meat. So today he planned to bring me to OUG for a fish head noodle, which he spotted some time ago. Unfortunately, when we were there at the market place, the stall was not opened, hence we had to adjourn to somewhere else. We went to the Win Soon shop in Kuchai Lama. He said this place wasn’t bad either, just a bit costly.

This was probably the best tasting fish head noodle I’ve ever had. Not that I had a lot of fish head noodle in my life, nor do I fancy it. But the soup just taste good, and the fried fish cutlets were good too. Aside from the higher price tag, which I don’t really mind much, this was a good place to visit, once in a while. Besides, the location was quite far from my reach, which might hinder my frequency of visits.

This was a place recommended by a fellow friend whom home town is in Kluang, if we got the place correct from his ad-lib instructions to the location. We haven’t had anything for lunch since we departed from Tioman island, all the way drive from Mersing to Kluang. This late lunch has turned into a dinner instead.

As I stated above, the sauce from the hotplate bean curd was excellent. Those weren’t sauce per se, it was more like the mixed substance of cooked oil with ingredients which leak out from your food when you grilled them hard. In another word, the ESSENCE of the food! Just great! I wished I could find something similar back in KV. I wasn’t good with bitter gourd, as I don’t like the bitterness in them. Nevertheless, this plate of stir fried pork with bitter gourd was quite good. Bitter gourd wasn’t too bitter and the pork was nice. Though the chef was a little heavy handed, it was a tad too salty, but would be perfect if you had them with rice. While the soup and water spinach was just ordinary.

Couldn’t remember how much was the dinner, but it was a good one, aside from us being too hungry from skipping our lunch.
