Chinese New Year is around the corner. I guess Nando’s also can’t missed out on the opportunity to make more money. They introduced the Chick Sang, which was practically similar to the Chinese dish, “low sung” (糅生).

... the Chick Sang (should be pronounced as "sung") doesn't mean the chicken could sing.

Instead of salmon, the meat was replaced with chicken cutlets, which were tinier than the gold you can dig from your nostrils. Pomelo pieces were replaced with orange pieces, which tasted rotten to me. I guess it was mixed with Hot Peri-Peri sauce as well because it was a tad spicy in it. Taste was, it was acceptable to me, but TSL preferred the original Chinese style “low sung”. But I preferred this instead. Or perhaps I’d prefer the original one with Peri-Peri sauce. It was worth a try, but not worth the second coming.

Came to Hao Wei Dao for lunch today. The RM1/fried rice promotion was still valid. But I had to give it a pass because I don’t really have any appetite today.

Fortunately, today’s honey sea coconut wasn’t too sweet, it was just right. Bacon aglio olio spaghetti was spicy indeed, but it tasted like how it was the first time I had it. Talks about good consistency. Bacon salad wasn’t too bad, though the bacon could’ve been better. I wanted to order the omelette but I was afraid it doesn’t last, like the first time I had, as I was quite hungry already. There was a funny item called the vegetarian omelette. I wonder how could it be vegetarian when it’s an omelette.

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.

I was dead hungry tonight, so I dragged ALGJ with me for dinner. We weren’t sure what to have so she drove around aimlessly in SS15. Until we saw a restaurant at a corner lot near those infamous colleges in SS15. Then we decided to just give it a try rather than going further down the road, because I was already very hungry and it was pretty jammed as well.

Tonight’s dinner was a good one. The recommended boneless fried chicken cutlets in salad sauce were pretty amazing. The nice fragrance and taste from the batter and the chicken. There were a lot of stripped cucumbers. Though the chicken cutlets weren’t really that many but I guess it suffice for the 2 of us, as there were other dishes as well. Well, usually good stuff tend to felt a little short, ain’t it?

When the sizzling bean curd was served, ALGJ bailed out of her place. Actually, she went to the washroom. Lucky for her cause I had a few bombs on my shirt having the freshly cooked sizzling bean curd placed right in front of me. I think the furthest one shot off almost 2 metres away. Aside from the drama, it tasted pretty nice actually. The nice fragrance from the egg which padded the bean curds from getting charred when come in direct contact to the hot pan.

Finally, the sambal squids which I had a rather high expectation on. Probably because I’m a sucker for squids. Unfortunately, it wasn’t as good as the earlier 2 dishes. The whole plate was practically soaked in oil. It was pretty spicy too, aside from the abundance amount of oil.

Overall, it was a pretty neat dinner. Quite cheap considering we had 3 dishes and 2 bowls of rice. It cost us less RM15 each pax. Hope I can go back there again anytime soon to try out other interesting dishes.

Today my colleague said she was hungry, but she wanted something light. Then I asked her to make a suggestion and she suggested to come here.

The french toast was different from others. The breads was … fried, I guess. They were very crunchy. Just that I needed to spread the butter and honey myself. The garden salad was normal, like how a garden salad should be, I guess. But the onion made my mouth stink for the whole day.
