... the famous grilled fish in Petaling Street.


... smells damn good, worth the wait.


... smells good too and the squids actually tasted salty. Very nice!

Rating: 7.5/10

The grilled fish and squids were really good. Though the wait was really long, if you can stand it. Took us around 1 hour to have our grilled seafood served.

... a famous Hokkien styled noodle in Petaling Street, with snobbish and fucked up staffs.

Rating: 2/10

The Hokkien Mee was acceptable only, nothing to shout about. But you do really get shouted at if you didn’t order enough while waiting for grilled fish at their tables. So ended up, they chased you away to the grilled fish tables area. If only they would pay more attention at cooking the food than scrutinizing which customers to stay or leave, it would have been a much more better food tasting experience.

Yeah, UP YOURS. Your Fukking Mee don’t taste that great to permits you to shout at customers.

... my breakfast in McDonald's.


... pork patty in soup pasta.

Rating: 2/10

Pork patty was something new to me as this is the first time I tasted pork patty from McDonald’s. The patty was mildy peppered, though it has slightly pork smell in it, which was the kind of smell that I don’t like. The patty was served in a bowl full of pasta with soup.

My advice, NEVER EVER try this. It sucks!

... we went nearby for supper. DC and LGJ's treat because they didn't pay for the beers.


... HK was famous for their milk tea. Finally, my chance to have it.


... something light as supper's snack.

Rating: 2/10

Since the earlier rounds of beers were forked out by EL, HL and me. Hence the supper was covered by DC and LGJ. They were shouting seniority when we had to take turns to pay for the beers. And it finally stopped after my turn. Fortunately, the beers don’t cost as much as other food, if comparison by ratio over to the cost of food in Malaysia. I would say, after conversion, the beer was a tad cheaper than those found in Malaysia. Furthermore, we were having draft beers, which usually cost more than … gassed (?) beers.

I have to had the milk tea as HK was famous for it. Unfortunately, it wasn’t up to my liking. The milk was really heavy. It was really suitable for those milk lovers. The sweetness was non-existence, as we were given separate sugar. It was the patron’s choice of putting how much sugar as they like. I guess it’s healthier this way, rather than putting your fate in the hand of your macha (our local mamak guy that does the teh tarik).

The soya sauce chicken wings were really unappetizing. The skin was thick as if the chicken has never exercised. Nevertheless, I still manage to finish 1 piece but I wouldn’t want to have it again. Taste wasn’t nothing to shout about. It was basically soaking in those black soya sauce.

This place serves the first pan mee with fried pork lard that I ever discovered. Hence I held a fond memory of it in my mind. Unfortunately, it has moved into the mass market as well. While I ordered for a dried pan mee, like I usually do. The boss prompted me whether to have it “spicy” or not. Without realising it, she was actually referring to the spicy pan mee style. When it was served, I was surprised. My ordinarily nice dried pan mee turns into a spicy pan mee. Anyway, I dived in real quick because I was hungry. It tasted quite bad actually, especially after I’ve mixed in the egg. The whole thing became a sticky chunk. The chilli sauce/paste was not significant either. The fried pork lards were hard like rocks today.

I wanted to come here the previous time, but Kuma spotted Super Kitchen and hence we changed plan last minute. This time around, I dragged Kuma, TSL and WWS into the pirate ship.

First off, the teh c with gula melaka was quite nice at first, but the tea’s flavour was too diluted and lacked of milk. The gula melaka was significant, too significant in comparison. If only the tea was thicker and the milk as well. TSL’s mee rebus was different from what we usually have. She exclaimed, there were green chilli. To me, the gravy was salted, as opposed of what supposed to be sweet. The noodle has heavy taste of alkaline, which was really bad and yucky. Kuma’s nasi kerabu wasn’t blue as I usually had. Though, there were still some hints of lemon grass in it. I guess only that matters when it comes to nasi kerabu.

My roti john cheese was not that good either, at least it was all bad, like the mee rebus. The bread was hard, unlike those I had in Steven’s Corner, where the bread was soft and nice to chew. I barely has any cheese taste, very lightly taste indeed. RM4.50 for that, it’s pretty costly. I would’ve opted for a burger instead with that kind of price. Then the half boiled omega eggs. First batch was too raw, we had them replace it. Then the second batch seemed ok but looked very watery. After putting in some pepper and soya sauce. It felt like drinking water with pepper and soya sauce. The eggs were pretty tasteless and it was watery like WATER! H2O! Any time the worst half boiled eggs I’ve ever had, except those rotten/not-so-fresh ones. Yuck!

Finally, we had another order on the bean curd tower. It seemed kinda cute to me as I’ve never encountered such a monolith before. When it was served, Kuma exclaimed that it was indeed a tower. I tasted traces of bread, deep fried. I guess the outer layer was covered in bread and soaked in eggs before it was deep fried to crisp. The inside was made of pieces of rectangular bean curd, not a whole chunk of a single piece of bean curd though. The sweet soya sauce given was good to numb myself from eating the bean curd tower, which was vomitous after all the bad stuff we’ve had earlier. If they would’ve given some jalapeno into the soya sauce mix, that would’ve been better. Anyway, we didn’t manage to finish the bean curd tower. Kuma said that stink tofu probably tasted better than that piece of junk.

I guess I won’t be going back there again. Despite the first bad experience, there were varieties of stuff which were really tempting to me though. That could be the price to pay for being curious.

Today’s food sucked. The Tom Yum Spaghetti wasn’t much like what I used to had, the first time. The spaghetti was overly soaked and the surface was coarse, unlike the usual smooth feeling spaghetti. Then the tom yum paste was not as tasty as it should it. I felt like vomitting trying to finish it. Then the iced lemon tea was very diluted. Though it only cost RM1.50 when I had it as a set. The set cost RM15. The Tom Yum Spaghetti ala carte was RM13.50 already.

I had a serving of the Chocolate Walnut Brownie too because they ran out of the Vienna Brownie. The top of the brownie seemed scraped off. Were they trying to recycle excessive chocolate? Anyway, it doesn’t really taste that good either. Fortunately, the brownie doesn’t cost too much, around RM4.50 each. Cheaper than the drink itself.

I went to Restoran Kwai Sun for the Nyonya fried noodle, but it was closed, or not opened for weekends evening. So I had to adjourn to somewhere else. Then it cross my mind that there’s a stall which I wanted to try. It’s the shark’s fins noodle which I saw some time back. I’ve had good impression on shark’s fins soup noodle from Ming Tien’s stalls. I wonder how was this compared to the 1 in Ming Tien.

... a very big bowl of shark's fins soup noodle. But the noodle used was like linguine instead.

Needless to say, I was utterly disappointed. Aside from the big bowl and rather cheap price, it was more like “law min” soup than shark’s fins soup. As for the looks, it was similar. I was happy at first, thinking that the soup would be nice and it seemed to overwhelmed the noodle, cause I can’t see them when presented. But as I dig in, the soup tasted bland, rather tasteless. Lacked of crab meat too. The noodle was tasteless despite being soaked in the soup. Probably because the soup was bland, hence the noodle too. Aside from that, my 30 mins wait for it was a total waste of time. I should have had trusted my guts and left the place after finishing my drink. Despite taking so long, I was served with something that bad.
