This is the place that I’ve been wanting to come very often, and at the same time, would like to introduce it to my fellow friends and colleagues. Because this is a seafood place that worth every penny. This time around, I brought along ALGJ and MSF. MSF said she wouldn’t have join us if it wasn’t for my birthday celebration. It was because Jinjang is just so far away from our office. The time we took to reach here was more than 1 hour, due to the after office hours jam.

As usual, the fried little squids that I won’t miss, while MSF said she has been craving for crabs all this long. Hence we ordered 2 XL sized crabs. A sweet and sour flavour and baked style. The crabs were magnificent because the size of the pincers were about the size of my palm. Sweet and sour flavoured crab was not a simple dish to make. So far, I haven’t had a good sweet and sour crab in KV before. The last best one was from my home town, which I think the place has closed down. Now, I have finally found a sweet and sour crab which I could put in my mouth. Not that I’m biased, but it was really good. As for the baked crab, it was very salty though, similar to what I had in Seremban.

Fortunately, both of them were quite satisfied with the food and find that the bill was reasonable. Before we left the place, MSF said she has to come again for crabs next time. Generally, all the food we had for the evening were quite good. This place has never disappoint me so far.

PG told me that he has been craving for fish head noodles lately. I do not know why was that. My only guess was probably because he hasn’t been having “women” for quite some time. I guess having fish head noodle is healthier than the other type of meat. So today he planned to bring me to OUG for a fish head noodle, which he spotted some time ago. Unfortunately, when we were there at the market place, the stall was not opened, hence we had to adjourn to somewhere else. We went to the Win Soon shop in Kuchai Lama. He said this place wasn’t bad either, just a bit costly.

This was probably the best tasting fish head noodle I’ve ever had. Not that I had a lot of fish head noodle in my life, nor do I fancy it. But the soup just taste good, and the fried fish cutlets were good too. Aside from the higher price tag, which I don’t really mind much, this was a good place to visit, once in a while. Besides, the location was quite far from my reach, which might hinder my frequency of visits.

... my fellow favourite condiments from 100C Steamboat. Sambal belacan, 100C special sauce, fried garlic and shallot.


... ALGJ took Hainanese chicken's condiment and honey mustard & mayonnaise.


... I ordered the vegetarian set.


... 1 of the reasons I come here for dinner, the original flavoured bubble tea.


... boiling my stuff, vegetarian set indeed looks very unappetizing.

ALGJ has been craving for steamboat for a while now. She keeps bugging me for this. Finally, we came here for dinner today. This 100C Steamboat outlet was initially opened in NZX. My favourite, as usual, the millions of choice on the condiments. This time around, ALGJ spotted something better, the honey mustard & mayonnaise.

I went for the vegetable set, hoping to keep my strict diet in check. Unfortunately, the taste was rather bland. I was crying for more meat as I progress. ALGJ threw me 1/2 of her set, which made me very full.

I had a very very nice bubble tea last time when this outlet was in NZX. I keep thinking of it. Hence I must order this today. Unfortunately, it was quite runny and bland. I guess things change, to worst.

Today, ALGJ and me had breakfast with MSF. MSF said she needed to go to nearby office for meeting so I recommended having breakfast in Glenmarie.We ordered 4 types of dumplings as I don’t want to have a heavy breakfast. Firstly, the fried dumpling hasn’t much mushrooms in it. The vege dumplings were plainly meaty as well. Then the prawn dumplings weren’t just plain prawns. Then the meat dumplings were… pretty meaty. I was expecting crunchy prawns meat in the prawn dumplings, but I was wrong. I guess I shouldn’t expect much from cheap food such as these.

... we occupied 2 tables despite the place was packed with people. But 1 table was too small anyway for the 4 of us.

At first, I’ve got no idea where was this place when my sister told me about it. While on the way, I realised that I’ve came here before, but that was eons ago. Probably 7-8 years back. When we were there, I was thinking we probably can’t get a table cause it was already packed with people. Fortunately, there were 2 tables side by side which could fit the 4 of us, nicely. Though 1 table would do, but I don’t think the table would fit our dishes anyway.

Upon ordering, the lady boss said there are no chickens. They served only “魚、蝦、蟹” (fish, prawn, crab). It sounded funny because “魚蝦蟹” means “et cetera” in Cantonese term. Anyway, we proceed with our order of fried rice as my sister has been praising it. I requested for Tom Yam. What would it be like without Tom Yam when we were in a Thai restaurant, right?

... it was so long ago since I last had a Thai coconut. It was so refreshing and sweet.


... these Chinese crullers similar were little. Probably Thai style crullers. It came with green kaya as condiment, which wasn't too sweet. But the crullers were very oily.

These drink and snack were separately charged. RM4.50 for one coconut was very very costly. The crullers were RM3 per plate. There were only like 11 pieces of them on the place. If given RM3, I think I could have Chinese crullers to my heart’s content.

... condiments for the stuff that we are about to receive.


... there were only 2 choices of vegetables. Kailan and this mixed vegetable.


... this was only plain fried rice, not Thai style fried rice or anything that I was expecting from this place. But there were countless number of prawns in it. Only RM15 for 3 pax portions, very cheap.


... I wasn't too hungry yet, so I wanted something sour to boost my appetite for the dinner.


... this was probably the best tasting grilled squids I've had so far. I was expecting bland tasting grilled squids at first, like I used to have most of the time. But these came as a surprise.


... steamed tilapia. It was somehow prepared in Thai sauce, probably to negates the foul smelling meat of the fish.

Frankly, the nice fried rice was an overstatement. There were a lot of prawns in it for the price of normal fried rice, which was commendable. I guess that’s the reason why most of the tables ordered fried rice, instead of white rice. At only RM5/pax of fried rice, I had at least 5-6 pieces of prawns, average. They were not small either. But in term of the taste department, it tasted like white rice fried in soya sauce. Yup, I could only taste the soya flavour in the rice, nothing else. The egg doesn’t produce any fragrance and the prawns don’t make the rice taste any sweeter either. Anyway, I guess there’s no complain as the portion was big. Mixed vegetables were nothing spectacular either.

The Tom Yam which was prepared in clay pot was acceptable. It was sour and quite thick. Plenty of squids in it and some prawns. Though I prefer a thinner soup base. Grilled squids were my favourite dish of the night. Unlike most grilled squids that I had, this actually tasted salty. And of course, it was best served hot. After it was cold, it no longer taste good anymore. Lastly, the tilapia which was fortunately enough, not very smelly. The meat was soft. Probably because it was prepared in Thai sauce, hence the foul smell was reduced to minimum. Anyway, the sourish and spicy sauce used was very appetizing. I found myself dipping my grilled squids in it and also mixing them into my fried rice.

Yam Rice

... this yam rice wasn't bad at all. Though I've additional yams from CLL, making it a YAM rice instead.

The dishes weren’t bad at all. I was picking the vegetables including the mushrooms, while the ladies took the pork with salted fish.

Our initial plan was to have steamed frog vermicelli here, but ended up they don’t have it tonight. Hence we went with the rather ordinary meal. The drunken chicken soup looked thick and there were so much of ginger in it, though I preferred sliced ginger. The soup tasted quite sweet. Everything else tasted moderate and I don’t have much appetite on them. The fried shrimps only filled on 1 piece of the bean curd while the other was only soaked in oyster sauce. Talks about fair. The fish cost RM8 every 100 grams. Being a freshwater fish, it doesn’t have the mud taste in it.
