... pot of pork, in boiling soup.

Rating: 5/10

This is the second time I visit this place. The last time I came, which introduced by FV, I had my first encounter with pig’s drumstick (細骨). It was really tasty and unique as I never thought bkt would have such type of meat served. It was tender, yet lean, which was my favourite. Unfortunately, for today’s drumstick, the meat was rather dry and hard. It has lost the legacy of being the best type of pork meat for bkt.

... the original chilli pan mee in KL.

The original is still unmatched, albeit it was really spicy. I had only 2 scoops. Should have gone with only 1.

Lunch with DL and YMH. Ordered the usual stuff, but this time we have a steamed silver grunter in Thai style. It was really nice, sourish gravy with plenty of jalapeno which sends you sky rocket into the moon. I will probably keep this in mind for my next visit there when they don’t have stock on cod fish.

... some 3 layered from your friendly pork.

... boil the oil until it is bubbly.

... start deep frying those pork.

... looking good.

... unfortunately, the inside looked raw.

I really don’t want to give it any ratings cause this experience was pretty much failed. Got the recipe from 阿蘇 2nd season. She said (from my best memory):

  • put some salt into some cold water, mix it until the salt dissolved.
  • add some garlic into the cold water as well.
  • soak the raw pork into the cold water for like 5 – 10 minutes.
  • take out the porky and wrap it dry with a piece of dry cloth. It has to be very dry in order to avoid armageddon when try to fry it.
  • boil oil until hot and dancing bubbles are seen.
  • put the salty garlicky porky into the oil and fry.
Here comes the interesting part:
  • leave the pork in the oil and close the pan.
  • lift the pan a little to let the air out.
  • when the explosions subsided over time, open it a little and shakes some water droplets into the wok. QUICKLY shut the lid and let the explosions continue.
  • repeat the steps above until the porky meat looks nice, like a piece of golden bar.
Guess what? The inside was quite cold.

... popia recommended by CTSW. So so only though cause he get from the wrong stall.

... a Chinese sweet delicacy, stuck to a piece of yam and deep fried in hot boiling oil.

What a way to celebrate the US independence.

... Restoran Hafiz.

... rice with egg, okra, lamb, fried squids.

Rating: 6.5/10

My sister brought me here for late lunch. She said the rice here is very nice, but I forgotten what it was called. The rice was cooked with chicken meats in it. The rice has nice aroma to it with slight hints of spice in it. The fried squids were horrible, while the muttons were acceptable. Fortunately, the curry sauce was quite good.

Unfortunately, the staff there was very pushy and keep putting stuff on my place, I had to order him to remove them, harshly.

... bottomless iced lemon tea.

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

... close up on Parmesan-Crusted Chicken Quesadillas.

... grilled beef ribs.

... close up on the beef ribs meat.

... the Brownie Obsession was something new. Decided to give it a scoop.

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.
