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.

HK was known for their “stewed milk” (燉奶) as seen from their serial dramas. It’s the 1 of my must-eat item for this trip. Though DC never knew where we could find it. It was fortunate for me for bumping into the shop while walking through the busy streets of Mong Kok, which DC was busy hanky panky-ing with his gf.

The stewed milk was frozen so that they were in solid form. They were like tofu pudding with flavour, with its smooth and silky texture. The taste were quite good, for the original flavour. While the variations weren’t that nice. But I don’t think it’s something that I can have 2nd serving because of the gluttony feeling of being too milky.

... Pokka Cafe, reminds me of the coffee flavoured can drinks. I wonder if they are related.


... HL's coffee.


... dragonfruit juice with nata de coco in it.


... smoked duck wraps has good fragrance on it. But it keeps reminding me of my strict diet that I should be taking.


... escargots soaked in mashed potato.

The drink was devastating, fortunately the smoked duck wraps were quite good. Though they were really cold. The mashed potato escargot was not as good as butter garlic escargot from San Francisco Steakhouse. I missed it very much.

The bill came up to around HKD188+ for only starters and drinks.

... Mr. Brown's Arabica coffee.

The walking was taking a toll on me, better stop by for a drink. Grabbed this bottle of mocha, which seemed the most convincing to me on the shelf of 7-11. Tasted pretty ok. Mildy sweetened and not bitter at all. HL said it was the must have in HK/Taiwan. I guess it’s because we don’t get it here in Malaysia. What we have were just Pokai (Pokka) coffee.

... the name was Bacon, Lettuce & Tomato. Yup, it doesn't have a proper name. Mainly just named after the ingredients.

My sandwich with added cheese was quite fulfilling. CTSW called for coffee break and I skipped my dinner, eagerly looking forward for a cup of my favourite XM. By the time I reach the place, I was already hungry and I can’t help by had to order 1 of the sandwiches there. I had the Club Sandwich before, which was quite good. Now I wanna try something different instead. Though the bacon was not sauteed until crisp as how I’d like it to be, it still taste good on itself. Reminds me of hams.

Next time I’ll try something different instead…

At first, I suggested Canton Fare @ Solaris Mont Kiara. But when I looked at the clock, it would’ve been 3pm by the time we reached there. Canton Fare’s last call is by 3pm, so I canceled off the plan and let my brother decide what to eat for lunch instead. He suggested to go to Leisure Mall and decide later. Hence, we went…

This was a difficult choice. I’m not a fan of Vietnamese food due to its rather dry, raw-ish feeling of their food and soak in sweet sour sauce most of the time.

Starting off with my parsley soda. The waitress mixed it before it was being served to me, so I don’t get to snap a nice photo of the presentation where there were layers in the cup. Bad move, bad bad move! Though the drink was pretty nice, slightly minty though.

The noodle was similar to fried yee min, except it doesn’t have the boring taste of yee min after having a few spoons of it. The sauce was nice too. The pork chop was covered in sweet sauce. No hints of lemon grass though. Perhaps Vietnamese’s lemon grass was different. The curry on the curry chicken has nice fragrance to it. My mum said it’s the Indian style curry which was my favourite.

The mixed fruits and meat served on a piece of fried cracker was nice too. Looked like salad. Perhaps Vietnamese style. The fried rice and fried vermicelli got my attention. They were both good. Rather unexpected that it’s coming from a Vietnamese menu. Finally, the fried mango prawn rolls. I had to break my strict diet plan and try 1 piece of it, cause it looked good. Somehow, I prefer it if they don’t cook it until it was so blazing hot. The mango was practically molten. Prawns were nice but not crunchy though.

Today IBM is having a farewell lunch for ChiChi, an SAP consultant whom came all the way from US of A to assist in our Warranty module implementation.

The destination: DOME Cafe at Subang Parade.

When my cappucino was served, I was so reluctant to stir it, because the toppings looked kinda nice. Later, I was reluctant to put sugar because I thought it would taste like Vienna Coffee from PHOP. Result, I almost spit out my cappu because it was basically tasteless. So I ended up downing a pack of Equal artificial sugar. Felt way too sweet. Should have held back as I knew that pack of aspartame is very sweet, just that I was too lazy to deliberate any further cause it was so noisy there.

We were surprised by the arrival of garlic breads later. It was the courtesy of our sponsor for making sure we were not too hungry waiting for our food. The garlic bread was being chomped down within minutes. They were quite good actually, with the crispy crust. Then there were the fries, served with mayo and chili sauce. I had only a few because the first stick of fries almost melted my fingers. Besides, I was eagerly waiting for my lamb stew.

Firstly, I get a taste of CM’s Spicy Prawn Olio. It was good, though a tad too spicy. I’d come back for that someday, definitely. Then there’s KWS’ Chicken Pie, which looked like a headcrab at first. Minutes later, it appears as if the brain juice got sucked out, if there’s even any brain juice to begin with. Then came my lamb stew. I thought it would be something soupy. Then I realised it was just an overpriced item from nasi kandar place. Yes, it’s called “rendang kambing”. *bhhhekkkk*

Last item was AC’s beef burger. It looked really good and it has a sunny side up egg hidden inside the stack. I managed to got a piece of the delicious looking beef burger. Despite it was well done (where the waiter didn’t have the courtesy to ask in the first place), the meat was tender, soft yet juicy. I was impressed by it actually. Something that’s worth coming back for. Perhaps DL might like this as an alternative to his favourite burger from Chili’s.

There are now at least 2 items on the menu that would my revisit.
