... the hunt, is over.

Finally, I found a my favourite coffee place, which I can hangout during weekends. Though it’s not too near, but it was convenient, with plenty of parking space. Most importantly, the place is cozy and it has free Wifi Internet access.

Location: The Sphere

... set meal at ChicKing, fast food for less than RM10.

Rating: 6/10

An acceptable dinner per pax, with rather healthier taste, or how I felt, to conventional fast food fried chicken. First time there with ALGJ, after KLIMS 2010. Been wanting more ever since.

... bottomless iced lemon tea.


... a rather costly Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Quesadillas as appetizer.

PG was enjoying the view of The Curve Boulevard yesterday when we were at Italiannies. He wanted to experience the same thing again today, hence we went next door of Italiannies, the brother company, TGI Friday’s. PG ordered the ribs while I picked the appetizer.

The appetizer was quite good, though the price was not cheap. While the ribs was interesting, but it was a bit charred/dried. Anyway, I’ve never had beef ribs for eons, I guess once a while makes no harm to my strict diet. The dessert was very sweet though. I thought I could substitute Chili’s molten chocolate cake with this brownies, but I guess I was wrong. Both of use could barely finish it.

... complimentary bread with olive oil and vinegar.


... bottomless iced lemon tea.


... it was so long ago since I last had stuffed mushrooms.

... recommended this prawn aglio olio to PG for his 1st time.

Rating: 6.5/10

I found out from PG that he has never tried Italiannies’ Aglio Olio pasta before, hence I suggested that we go there for early dinner. It’s been a while since I last had pasta there as well. This time, I ordered my favourite stuffed mushrooms as well. I wasn’t sure if it was because I never had stuffed mushrooms for too long, I find that the taste was different, just wasn’t as good as the 1st few times I had it.

As for the pasta, PG was very satisfied with it. He said he never expected it to be that good. I was very satisfied with the pasta as well, as it was consistent all of the time I patronise Italiannies.

Today, CTSW came looking for me for lunch. Since we don’t have anything to do, so I recommended that we head on to KL and have lunch in the foot court at Lot10. This time around, I get to try out the BKT, at last.

... a place not suited for certain ethnic of people.


... the bak kut teh looks delicious. I wonder how's the taste.

Rating: 8/10

Though I don’t really fancy Klang’s BKT, but this particular Mao San Gao (毛山稿) BKT really changed my mind. It tasted really really good. The soup was thick and black, with quite heavy scent of herbs, which I’ve never tasted before from Klang’s BKT. The meat was tender and the guy was nice enough to pick the leanest piece of meat for me. As such request was usually turned down. This BKT cost me around RM16 for a bowl of rice and a bowl of meat and soup. Steep, but it was really. I will definitely have this again when I’m back to Lot10 again for meals.

... suddenly I felt like eating bubur cha cha when I saw the picture on a stall. But this was lacking in sugar and coconut milk. Rather runny.

Rating: 3/10

Despite its look, this dessert tasted quite bad. Now I really wonder, did their quality dropped or the owner of the food court liked the plain runny taste of Bubur Cha Cha? Definitely not to my liking. It was quite runny as if they’ve mixed a lot of water in it to make a few more bowls to earn the quick bucks. Stay away from the dessert stall.

... this oysters omelette was so-so only.

Rating: 5/10

The oysters omelette was just mediocre, nothing to shout about. Though it was better than the one I had in HK, which was smaller and cost more than this.

On the very same day for dinner, I had the same Mao San Gao BKT again, at the Bandar Puteri Puchong’s outlet. Unfortunately, it doesn’t taste as good as the 1 I had in Lot10, though the price was cheaper. It lacks the herb flavour in it which I preferred.

... red bean shaved ice.

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.

... Win Soon noodle house in Kuchai Lama.


... honey sea coconut.


... vegetable in oyster sauce.


... fish head soup with vermicelli.

Rating: 6.5/10

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.

... Kuma's mango juice.


... I ordered a cappuccino.


... sugar water cup which looks like a golf ball.


... ALGJ ordered a chicken chop.


... a basket of fried chicken wings.


... I ordered a Seafood Aglio Olio Spaghetti.


... Kuma's Carbonara Spaghetti.

Rating: 6.5/10

I was told that the spaghetti here was nice, especially aglio olio. This time I finally remember to come here to give it a try. Brought a long Kuma, ALGJ and TSL. The pasta variety was quite different from other place. Firstly, choose your type of flavour, such as bolognaise, carbonara, aglio olio and etc. Then choose the fillings, such as vegetarian, beef, seafood, salmon and etc.

I wasn’t quite interested on the salmon, cause it’s the most expensive. Kuma ordered the beef carbonara hence I picked the seafood aglio olio. It tasted like most aglio olio, with dried chilis in it. Though the seafood was quite fresh. It cost around RM23 per plate, which was quite reasonable. Though I still prefer the aglio olio taste of Italiannies’. Kuma had a little complain though, as she preferred the carbonara spaghetti from Asia Cafe instead.

ALGJ ordered chicken chop, though that was like the n-th plate of chicken chop she had for the week. The taste was not bad, a lot better than most chicken chops in town. Our basket of chicken wings was mediocre though. And my cappuccino came with a cup of sugar which looks like a golf ball.

... not sure if original meatloaf is like this, but this was quite nice, but very filling.

Rating: 7/10

This is my first time here despite it’s quite near to where I stay. Aside from that, I didn’t even know this place existed. CTSW whom has been here before, wasn’t being much of a help on what to have. He ordered something light, the Sloppy Joe, while he did mentioned that the meatloaf was nice. When I saw the pork ribs on the menu, I can’t help but ordered it so we could try more stuff.

His Sloppy Joe was not bad. The sauce was like bolognaise sauce used in pasta. Dip the bun, fries into the sauce, or laden the bun with sauce and fries, then eat like a burger.

The meatloaf was indeed quite nice. Despite being only 2-little piece, they were quite tasty and soft. Somehow, the mashed potato was overkilling.

The marinated pork ribs was quite nice. A little sweetened and they fell off the bones easily.

The food here was quite nice, but we were dead full. The price was reasonable. All these cost less than RM70. A good alternative if one has had too much Friday’s or Chili’s.

... my fellow favourite condiments from 100C Steamboat. Sambal belacan, 100C special sauce, fried garlic and shallot.


... ALGJ took Hainanese chicken's condiment and honey mustard & mayonnaise.


... I ordered the vegetarian set.


... 1 of the reasons I come here for dinner, the original flavoured bubble tea.


... boiling my stuff, vegetarian set indeed looks very unappetizing.

ALGJ has been craving for steamboat for a while now. She keeps bugging me for this. Finally, we came here for dinner today. This 100C Steamboat outlet was initially opened in NZX. My favourite, as usual, the millions of choice on the condiments. This time around, ALGJ spotted something better, the honey mustard & mayonnaise.

I went for the vegetable set, hoping to keep my strict diet in check. Unfortunately, the taste was rather bland. I was crying for more meat as I progress. ALGJ threw me 1/2 of her set, which made me very full.

I had a very very nice bubble tea last time when this outlet was in NZX. I keep thinking of it. Hence I must order this today. Unfortunately, it was quite runny and bland. I guess things change, to worst.
