... lamb chop which I do not want.

Rating: -10/10

This is probably the WORST place to have western food. If not because we haven’t any choice, we wouldn’t even want to step inside this place. Overpriced, lousy food. The lamb chop was basically tasteless. It was like microwave-tinged food. The only commendable thing was the sweetness in guava. It’s as if the sugar was FOC there. Anyway, the stupid meal cost over RM80 for 2 pax. Overpriced son of a bitch.

Aglio Olio

... aglio olio pasta.

Rating: 0/10

This aglio olio linguine was very spicy and yet it was tasteless. Not salted at all. I was expecting it to be soak in olive oil with plenty of garlic, unfortunately, it was soaked in spicy oil. The only tasteful stuff were those beef bacons. Fortunately, the Extreme Latte was still nice. At least it was nicer than The Ultimate Extreme Mocha from Coffee Bean that I had last night, which was practically tasteless and lacked of coffee fragrance.

Fried Chicken

... Shihlin's boneless fried chicken.

Rating: 5/10

A new outlet of Shihlin opened in IOI Mall’s new wing. AT spotted it from where she sat. If I knew Shihlin was there, I would’ve had it for dinner as I was thinking of having it before looking for EL & AT, but time wouldn’t permit. Perhaps next time I’ll have dinner there instead.

Rushed to Seremban early this morning for some breakfast in the wet market. According to AT’s eating magazine, there were some nice food stalls there worth trying.

This vermicelli was quite different from what I usually have. Instead of clear soup, I was served with a brownish soup, which was quite salty in its nature. Then there were some cuttlefish strips and best of all, those sliced porks. The vermicelli itself was not very well prepared. It has the smell of raw vermicelli, which I don’t like. The sliced porks were very nice marinated. I guess I could just eat that all day long. Should have been called the marinated pork vermicelli instead.

... the specialty of the stall was dried beef noodle, instead of the soup one though.

AT went to order a bowl of beef noodle. She mistakenly ordered the soup noodle, instead of the dried one, which was recommended by the magazine. I had a few sips of the soup, which was very plain and watery, unlike any beef noodle’s soup I’ve had. I heard the noodle was home made too. I supposed that was to attracts more people to try it out with the notion that it was healthier? Anyway, I give it a zero because a bowl of beef noodle from Teppanyaki would’ve tasted much better. Perhaps it was her trick of leaving something behind, so we could have something to yearn for on our next visit.

I was quite tempted by the rojak’s photos in the magazine. AT said it was just a few stalls away from the stall selling vermicelli. Despite feeling a little full already, I went ahead to try it out. How often would I be visiting the wet market so early in the morning, let alone the one in Seremban’s? I was glad I did went ahead and be a glutton. This rojak (pasembur) was unlike any of those that I find in KV. It was served with pork (not the meat) in it and has five-spice powder in it, which made the gravy so special. Though it was quite spicy by comparison. Something worth a second try or takeaway.

... after those, we went around the stalls to go for Tow Kee's Hakka Mee.

I’m not a big fan of Hakka Mee, but since it was highly recommended, we went ahead and gave it a try. Initial impression was, it was very salty. I felt a slight tingling on my tongue. I was guessing it was due to the used of alkaline in the preparation of the noodle or it has way too much salty. Somehow EL and AT can’t feel that, but they loved the soup on the beef noodle though. My comment for this noodle? It was nothing extraordinary as I could get similar stuff in Glenmarie.

That’s about wrap it up for our breakfast in Seremban. A day which I woke up so early and I still can’t believe it myself.

PS: will update the stall numbers when I got them from EL or AT.

Nothing to say. My tummy felt weird after the garlic fried rice, even on the next day. I shall rate this the worst fried rice ever. Beating the RM1 fried rice from Hao Wei Dao.

PG begged me for lunch today, sort of, because he was in Toyota waiting for his car to be serviced. Something which took him a whole day. Since I’m so nice, so I decided to pick him up from there and let him join my colleagues for lunch. At first, I thought I’d only get a few people from my side and go for lunch, later it turns out that there were 9 of us in a total of 2 cars, hogging this place. This was the first time I’ve been here with such large group of people.

This was downright the worst yong tau fu I’ve ever tasted. The chilli sauce was nothing and the sweet sauce was bad too. The bean curd skin with fish ball was bad too. Don’t even get me started on the soup. The bad ass-ness of this was comparable to the chee cheong fun stall in SS2 by the road side. They were both probably operated by the same people or relatives to each other.

I was glad my plate of fried kuey teow was rather nice today. Despite the egg yolk was punctured, as usual. ALGJ got a bad copy as she got her plate of fried kuey teow much earlier than me. I let her tasted mine, she said mine was better, while hers and LGFL’s copy was charred badly. I thought the fried kuey teow fat lady has finally got her act together by keeping up with her consistency. I guess she still flops once a while. Fortunately, she doesn’t flop on my plate. Kudos!

Fried bean curd was nothing to shout about. The taste was mediocre. The good thing was, the fillings didn’t spill out as I pick it up with my chopsticks. Unlike some fried bean curd place, they put mines in it. Once you had your chopsticks over it, the fillings will explode right onto your face. The same sweet sauce was used on the rojak as well. It was lacking in the prawn paste taste that I preferred. The crackers were nearly non-existence. Too precious to give more, perhaps.

I was happily being at Station 1 for lunch, a place that I don’t usually frequent because I’d usually end up not knowing what to order. While I was able to decide on what to have, a deep fried chicken chop. I was ended up being served an ordinary chicken chop instead.

I was all ready with deep fried chicken chop. Expecting nice appetizing fragrance from the deep fried skin and meat of the chicken. Ended up I was being atom-bombed by the staff there with a stupid chicken chop having fat soggy skin and meat which I can’t make out the original colour because it was so soaked with gravy that came from unknown sauces…

Aside from being bad taste, I was being charged wrongly as well. So ended up the waiter has to make a few round trips to the counter.

Hire smarter people next time and don’t, I said DON’T force your customers to accept the result of your own mistakes.

Sushi King Bonanza is finally here! RM2 per plate of sushi. The sound of it sends shiver down my spine. The Sushi King Bonanza will last from 13th Oct 2008 until 16th Oct 2008. So, go grab your plate of sushi quick!

Rating: 0/10

A big boo-boo to Sushi King for not providing enough unagi. Being an unagi lover myself, I give it a pass on the first day of the bonanza, knowing that something is definitely amiss on this round of Bonanza. My abuse started in September last year, together with my colleague. Then the previous time, we basically swooped all the unagi that ever surface on the kaiten belt, even those before were being swooped.
