📌 Yamabuki, Kota Kemuning [non-halal]⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
📷 In frame: ⁣⁣⁣
Butter Mentaiko Mazeudon ⁣
⁣⁣
✨: It’s the same udon I covered a few posts back again! And as per that posting, the udon at Yamabuki is perfectly chewy, not too thick, and with good flavour. ⁣
⁣⁣
💬: I’m not too big a fan of butter in udon, though. I reckon it’s an acquired taste. Also, I find it gets pretty cloying midway through. I don't even really enjoy mentaiko (so why’d I even order this right? Reasons why you should play safe sometimes 😂)⁣


If you’re a fan of mentaiko and butter, go for this! ⁣


Note: All my visits with the exception of my last one have been great. In my last, the same curry udon from my previous posting didn’t quite live up to how much I hyped it up (woops). ⁣

📌 Gula Cakery, Kota Kemuning [halal]⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣

Burnt Cheesecake ⁣ ⁣⁣

✨: Gula cakery is a great, cozy neighbourhood spot to get a good sugary fix of cake and sweets. The bright and cute interior + the staff who wear the brightest smiles never fail to lift my mood. ⁣
⁣⁣
💬: However, I wasn’t so much of a fan of this burnt cheesecake. It was way too sweet for my liking, and did not have the melty centre and firm edges I look forward to in a burnt cheesecake. I feel it was more of a crustless new york cheesecake. ⁣


Nonetheless, I love the fact that they’re a family-run business and can always trust to receive great hospitality every time I visit! ⁣

Been searching for Tsukemen, or dipping ramen, in Malaysua ever since my unforgettable meal at Fu-Unji in Tokyo, which serves up a bonito fish based broth tsukemen. ⁣

📌 Mitsuyado Seimen, Starling Mall. [non-halal]⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣

Marutoku Tsukemen [RM32.90]⁣
⁣⁣
✨: Mitsuyado Seimen specializes in a yuzu and pork based broth tsukemen. The thick dipping broth comes with cubes of tender pork submerged within it, and as I opted for the Marutoku Tsukemen, my meal came with an additional side of flame-kissed charshiu, stir-fried vegetables, and a ramen egg. The noodles, with just the right amount of bite and thickness, are definitely my favourite part of the dish. I’d recommend getting the noodles cold over the hot option for optimal bounciness. And I have to mention the ramen egg! It’s hands down the most perfect ramen egg I’ve encountered in Malaysia. I wish I had gotten a photo of the perfectly runny centre. The char shiu was perfectly seasoned, tender, and with a smoky flavour. ⁣

⁣⁣
💬: However, the broth is really, and I mean really OILY. It’s evident even from the photo how the oils pool on top of the broth. So it's no surprise that midway eating, the porkiness and richness gets overwhelming and cloying. I’m assuming the yuzu is supposed to cut through the richness but it didn’t quite do it. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Though I enjoyed my meal at Mistsuyado, I wouldn’t find myself craving a bowl. ⁣

📌 Gold Chili, SS15. [halal]⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣

Boneless Chicken Set [RM12]⁣
⁣⁣
✨: Gold Chili’s rendition of the beloved Malaysian cafeteria staple involves a silky, luscious coating of butter and condensed milk over crispy yet juicy fried chicken. The fragrant flavours of curry leaves and the sweetness of the rich, dairy elements of the dish meld perfectly. A spoon of steamy white rice and a bite of sauce laden meat creates a simply heavenly mouthful. ⁣
⁣⁣
💬: As much as it’s good, I wouldn’t travel to the area for the sole purpose of having a meal at Gold Chili. Would definitely consider going there if I were nearby though. ⁣
⁣⁣
Do you like Malaysian style butter chicken (aka 奶油鸡)?⁣

📌 Yamabuki, Kota Kemuning. [non-halal]⁣
⁣⁣

Curry Udon with Fried Chicken Katsu⁣

✨: It’s really hard to decide on the star of the dish. Every element was amazing in its own right. Starting with the fried chicken cutlet, it was perfectly cooked, retaining all its flavourful juices within a light, crispy outer coating. When paired with the steaming curry and chewy udon, satisfaction fills every mouthful. The Japanese curry was uniquely tangy with a mild spice level, just the way I like it. The housemade Sanuki udon, on the other hand, can be said to be the best I’ve had in Malaysia. It’s just the right thickness, with the perfect bite and flavour. The noodles are made from Japanese imported wheat flour, which I reckon explains why they’re so good.⁣

💬: If only the food was prepared with a pinch less salt (my family all thought their dishes to be a little too salty), Yamabuki would be flawless. ⁣


Incredibly happy to have uncovered a good Japanese gem in my neighbourhood! ⁣

The Atlantic [RM27]⁣⁣

✨: The only thing I’ll give credit to the Red Beanbag is their perfectly poached eggs.
Otherwise, I found the dish I got rather lacklustre. ⁣

💬: The element I anticipated most -- the smoked salmon, lacked flavour and was presented in thin, sad strips. Also, despite the unconventional use of french toast over the traditional English muffin, the former managed to be drier. The mushrooms and spinach too failed to add any elements of salt or acidity I was anticipating in the dish. Overall, I was disappointed. ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I hope I’ll be compelled to re-visit, but as of right now, I don’t see myself going back anytime soon.⁣

📷 In frame: ⁣⁣ Fishhead Noodles with Fried Halibut and Fish Paste (Beehoon; Milky Soup) [RM13.90]⁣ ⁣

✨: Mr Fish Fishhead Noodles boasts a great portion size at great value.
For RM13.90, my bowl of milky bee hoon (rice noodles) came with a big portion of fried halibut and fish paste. With the meal, you get a free (but VERY SWEET) green tea too. ⁣

💬: Taste-wise, it isn’t much to shout about. The soup tasted watery and lacked the tangy, appetizingly refreshing kick that typically cuts through the broth’s richness. ⁣


I reckon my best bet for a bowl reminiscent to that from my childhood would be Woo Pin Fishhead Noodles. Any recommendations for good fishhead noodle places? ⁣

Brown Sugar Boba Milk [RM12.50]⁣

✨: I was expecting to be disappointed, but I was enlightened by the brown sugar fresh milk gods as soon as I took a sip of Xing Fu Tang’s rendition. The milk was light and refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness. It’s the complete opposite of one of their competitors that start with an ‘A’ and end in ‘Y’. As for the pearls, I personally enjoyed the mochi-like texture of the pearls, but I understand some people prefer harder and chewier pearls. The drink had a subtle fragrant hint of cream cheese as well (not exactly sure if it’s actually part of the ingredients list). From my description of the drink, it’s no surprise that I was reminded of Haagen Dazs’ cream cheese mochi ice cream (that is bomb.com). Taste aside, a trip to Xing Fu Tang really is an experience in of itself. You get to see the live cooking of the pearls in brown sugar, the blowtorching of the drink’s brown sugar topping, and have your fortune told by randomly picking out a fortune stick (hence the name Xing Fu Tang, which translates to ‘happy/fortunate place’). ⁣

💬: Of course, the one downside of Xing Fu Tang is its crazy long queue! The line stretched across multiple shops when I visited, but perhaps it’s gotten better now. ⁣


I’d definitely recommend Xing Fu Tang and would actually find myself craving a cup! As not that big of a bubble tea person, this is a big statement. ⁣

⁣Stopped by Hakka Rang Restaurant after hearing so many good things of their traditional fare.

📌 Hakka Rang Restaurant, Petaling Jaya.⁣
⁣⁣
📷 In frame: ⁣⁣
Abacus Seeds [RM14.90]; Lei Cha [RM13.50]; Stuffed Beancurd Ball [RM3/pc]⁣

✨: I absolutely loved the stuffed beancurd ball -- the fluffy tofu soaked up all the flavourful broth like a sponge and was jam-packed with juicy minced meat. I was instantly hit with nostalgia as the dish was once a family favourite (until our neighbourhood Hakka restaurant shut down :”)) This was also the first time I had abacus seeds. I’m definitely a fan of the bouncy bite and the fragrant flavour brought about the dish by the five-spice tofu, onion, and leeks. ⁣

💬: I did find the abacus seeds a tad too salty, though. As for the Lei Cha, I was sadly disappointed. I found the soup quite bland and diluted. The toppings, too, didn’t add much flavour. It was as if every element of the dish tasted of a single note.⁣


I’ll definitely find a time to come back for their other meaty offerings such as the 炸肉 and the 猪脚醋!⁣

📌 Caffe Bene, Sunway Pyramid⁣

Caramel Cinnamon Honey Bread [RM18]⁣

✨: My thirteen-year-old self would mindlessly splurge on this block of toast. I recall believing the refreshingly sweet whipped cream; fluffy, buttery toast; and cozy flavours of cinnamon and honey to be a combination made in heaven. ⁣

💬: To my disappointment, 4 years later, the dish now has only a single note-- sweetness. It didn’t help that it’s already hefty price tag went up even more.⁣


I’ll still patronize Caffe Bene for the cozy atmosphere and array of drinks and desserts, but I definitely won’t be ordering this toast again :") Sigh. This is a sad post.⁣

Wonder Tofu Bowl + Barley Drink Set [RM15.90]⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: A big win for me is definitely the portion size at Wonder Poke. You really get your money’s worth with the amount of ingredients packed into the bowl. For small eaters, I reckon you could just share a bowl. The veg-packed bowls are definitely a healthier meal option around Sunway. Like any poké place, bowls are customisable where diners get to pick a base, sides, a protein, toppings, and a dressing. I’d highly recommend getting the tri-colour rice as the base for your poke bowl. It isn't three different variants of grains, but rather, perfectly-cooked rice flavoured in three different ways. I liked as well that there was minimal dressing, unlike another poke store nearby which I will not name (but you can easily guess hahah). It’s just my personal preference to not have the dressing overpower the entire dish’s flavour.⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
💬: It isn’t mind-bogglingly good but I’d definitely opt for this if I were in the area! I’d probably try to make my own version at home, though. Having this for lunch everyday is definitely an expensive lifestyle. I realise in all my previous posts I’ve been talking about food being expensive LOL (can you tell I’m on a tight budget)⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Opt for the bowls of the day priced at RM15.90 (comes with a drink) for a healthy lunch that’ll definitely keep you stuffed till dinner! ⁣⁣

✨: Kind Kones undoubtedly has the best vegan ice cream out there. In place of regular milk, Kind Kones uses plant-based milk bases and bananas for their creamy concoctions. The resulting texture is almost identical to that of regular ice creams. I very much enjoyed my pick of the peanut butter and jelly flavour, which wasn’t overly sweet and had a nice hint of banana (I’m guessing it’s a banana base?). There was a nice ratio of sweet jam bits and bursts of what seems to me to be walnuts or almond butter (rather than peanut butter). ⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
💬: As much as I enjoyed my ice cream, I wouldn’t actually agree with its name. It’s doesn’t really taste like PB nor J, just a very good banana ice cream with bits of nut. And, of course, being a bougee vegan ice cream, it’ll pinch the wallet a little, welp.⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Uber excited to go back to try more flavours! Will definitely see myself back for more 😋⁣

Eating my way through life!
