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 😋⁣

The takoyaki had a crisp outer and gooey insides with delightful bursts of red pickled ginger. And of course, the star of the show-- the big chunk of octopus within! The octopus was not tough to chew at all but soft with just the right amount of bite. The appetizing tang from the generous brush of takoyaki sauce and the umami of the sprinkle of bonito flakes tie the whole dish together. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
💬: However, this absolutely breaks the bank (at least for the amount of food you get huhu) 😭 I would STRONGLY recommend going on a Thursday when they have their RM1 for 1 Tako Thursday promotion. This same portion of takoyaki would be priced at RM8 instead of RM15.90-- that’s half price!⁣
⁣⁣
Conclusion: Gindaco has the best Takoyaki (at least in Malaysia). Period. BUT GO ON A THURSDAY! ⁣

Regular Bowl [RM15.90]⁣⁣ Tomato Wholegrain Pasta, Adobo Tofu, Zucchini, King Oyster Mushroom, Picco de Gallo, Coriander, Olives, Pesto Sauce ⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣

✨: Burnt is a new addition to the many lunch options available for Sunway students. If you're looking for a healthy lunch that isn’t raw salad or topped with raw fish (like poké commonly is), you’d want to check Burnt out. I happen to like my vegetables COOKED, so Burnt’s concept definitely appeals to me. Like poké, bowls at Burnt are fully customizable-- you fill out a sheet with what ingredients you want in your bowl. The ingredients I filled my bowl with were all very nicely done and paired well together; I especially loved the king oyster mushroom. I also liked how the sauce came on the side so I get to play with the ratios to my liking. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💬: However, I experienced a lingering aftertaste from my meal. I had initially thought I was the only one who experienced it but my friend did as well. It didn’t cause a whole lot of discomfort, but I just thought I’d note it. ⁣

If you’re a student, do bring along your student ID as you’ll be entitled to an RM1.60 discount! I didn’t but the lady at the cashier was kind enough to award it anyway (thank you!). ⁣

Definitely would try to re-create this to save my wallet from further bleeding though :”) ⁣

✨: These bursting pockets of joy are so satisfying and absolutely delicious.
Din Tai Fung perfects the soup dumpling with a silky, paper-thin skin, tender minced pork filling and flavourful, meaty soup. The dumplings paired with a mixture of 2 parts chinese vinegar, 1 part soy sauce and julienned ginger make for a match made in heaven. ⁣
⁣⁣
💬: Only complaint would be the strain on my wallet to dine at Din Tai Fung. Oh well, what can l say, I’m living the broke student life 😂 ⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣
If you haven’t had XLBs from Din Tai Fung in your life, get to it this instant!⁣

📷 In frame: ⁣⁣ Cham, Kaya Butter Toast & Bun, Half-boiled eggs.

✨: Kheng Chew does the humble half-boiled egg amazingly, perfectly runny and silken. The fragrant, homemade kaya is a wonderful combination with the butter and toast. And how could I forget, the CHAM-- rich, deep, and milky coffee with a roasty hint of tea. If you’re lucky (unlike me on this particular day), the packed beehoon is a must-try. The beehoon is fried with tauchu or fermented yellow soybeans, giving it a unique and absolutely delectable flavour. They do a good nasi lemak as well, that’s simple with just some sweet sambal and coconut rice. ⁣

💬: Do get your toast and buns with kaya and butter on the side, as I’m pretty sure they use Planta for the already spread versions. A downside would be the cham isn’t consistently good: the first time I went I fell absolutely in love but my second visit’s cup was slightly too milky for my liking. ⁣


For a good fix of traditional Hainanese breakfast, Kheng Chew is definitely my favourite spot in my neighbourhood! There’s plenty of meal options available as well, given it is merged with Tian Kee that serves up Curry Noodles, Ipoh Hor Fun, and the like.⁣

⁣📌 Long Man Restaurant, Semenyih.

Seng Kua Tofu, Onion Omelette, Curry Fishhead, Sweet Potato Leaves⁣

✨: Tucked away in the neighbourhoods (literally) of Semenyih is the gem that is Long Man restaurant. It is a corner home turned eatery that serves up delectable Chinese fare for incredibly affordable prices. Every dish held its own but my favourite has to be the stir-fried sweet potato leaves. The vegetables were nicely softened and not overly seasoned or greasy. ⁣

💬: Don't have your expectations crazy high-- it's just comforting fare at a crazily affordable price. ⁣

Captain Hook Burger [RM22]⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: The thick fish patty was crisp on the outside with tender, flaky fish on the inside. The slightly spicy Kelantanese Budu Mayo added a nice twang to the burger, and the crunch and freshness of the accompanying vegetables balanced the flavours out nicely. ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💬: MBL will always remain a treat for me given it’s hefty price tag, even for an ala carte burger. Can’t deny the quality though! ⁣
⁣⁣⁣
Honestly, I’d have to give the burger another go before I decide if it compares to or beats my all time favourite MBL burger (a classic lab burger with an additional pineapple ring!).

Black Forest Waffle (Mini) [RM18]⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: The waffle itself was so incredibly light. The outer shell, in terms of texture, had the qualities of a crisp and thin kuih kapit (CNY cookies are the only things I can draw comparison to at the moment given I’m stuffing myself silly with them every day). The combination of flavours in the dish was spot on-- bursts of refreshing berry jam complemented by rich and silky chocolate ice cream. Needless to say, my friend @v.c.w.s and I went in full on ATTACC mode on the poor waffle. ⁣

💬: However, based off of my previous visits to Foret Blanc, their other menu offerings are nothing to shout about, so just go straight for the waffles if you ever visit :> ⁣

Just thinking of the waffle makes me happy so if anyone is down to go again hmu AHAHA

(or mazesoba? Someone please tell me the difference hahah)⁣⁣⁣

Toku Mazeudon [RM26]⁣

✨: I opted for the all-encompassing Toku Mazeudon with a ramen egg and charsiu. First off, the portion size was amazing. My bowl was nicely loaded and accompanied by a small bowl of rice. I was told that it was to be enjoyed with the flavourful remnants of the dish after finishing the noodles. From observing what my family got, even for their other menu offerings, you get a great amount for the price you pay. Back to the mazeudon, I loved the slight spice and savoury porkiness that permeated the noodles. The pairing with the creamy egg yolk gave the noodles a great mouthfeel as well. Midway through the dish, adding a dash of kombu chilli vinegar made the noodles adopt a tangy kick that whetted my appetite. The nice change of flavour was a great palate cleanser. Also, the ramen egg was nicely flavoured with a hint of shoyu. Texture-wise, it was just the right combination of runny and firm for me. I quite enjoyed the charsiu as well, which was surprisingly melt-in-the-mouth. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
💬: My only complaint would be how high in sodium the dish is. However, I suppose I can easily combat that by adjusting the mince to udon ratio for every mouthful. ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣
I’ll be back to test out more of Hibiiki’s dishes before I confidently recommend it for good Japanese fare within the Kota Kemuning neighbourhood! ⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣UPDATE: Went again and I can tell you I’m never going back 😅. Tried an array of side dishes and their black garlic ramen (which tasted bitter?). The food quality this time round dropped so much I didn’t even feel like eating. Guess I’ll stick to Rakuzen for Japanese food within Kota Kemuning 🤷‍♀️⁣⁣⁣

Cincalok Fried Chicken [RM26]⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: The natural light-strewn interior of Chocha is, without a doubt; gorgeous. Prior to my visit, I've heard great things of Chocha's Cincalok Fried Chicken. ⁣

💬: After finally trying it for myself, I'm sad to report that it didn't quite live up to my expectations. The chicken was dry with a greasy and heaty aftertaste. The pairing of the chicken with the refreshing accompaniments of tangy salsa and sweet tomato chutney was appropriate but failed to compensate for the lacking texture of the chicken. ⁣

For fried chicken, Table and Apron will remain my go-to 🍗 ⁣

Nonetheless, I'd re-visit Chocha for their other menu options that caught my eye such as the Biang Biang Noodle 😋⁣

Pork Noodles (Bee Hoon + Hor Fun) [RM9]⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: The clear broth was rich with pork flavor yet clean tasting-- just the way my family and I like it. I am aware, however, that many may disagree and prefer a more 'kao' and cloudy broth. The combination of beehoon and hor fun made for the perfect mouth feel, effortlessly gliding down the throat and soaking up all the flavours of the broth. An ample amount of pork, given the RM9 price tag, came with the bowl. ⁣⁣

For a no frills and heartwarming noodle dish, 66 Chu Yuk Fun is worth a visit! ⁣

Fish Prosperity Burger Medium Value Meal [RM16] ⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
✨: Curly fries!! These are one of the many things I look forward to during the Chinese New Year. You can never have a bad curly fry 🍟 This year, McDonald's released a new version of the Prosperity Burger with a fish patty. Personally, I am a fan, but mainly because I'm a grandma and I love soft foods. It's easier to bite and chew given the absence of skin, fat, tendons, or stringy bits normally present in the chicken or beef patty. As a fish patty itself, it's nothing special. It is heavily drenched in the Prosperity black pepper sauce, pairing nicely with the zing of the raw onions. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
💬: At times, the black pepper flavour gets a bit too much, but that's when the McFizz and a bit of curly fry comes in to save the day! 😂 The McFizz isn't my favourite, but it gets the job done. ⁣⁣
If you like heat and black pepper is your jam, definitely give the prosperity burger a shot if you haven't already! If not, just go get a large order of curly fries please you won't regret it 🤤⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣Happy Chinese New Year! 🏮 ⁣⁣

Eating my way through life!
