Fresh Almond Butter Trout @ Dustermuhle


Hubby decided to eat out whole of last weekend.  I reckon the hot temperature played a role.  It was scorching hot and we both simply did not feel like cooking.  So off we went in search for a nearby restaurant for our late dinner. 

Dustermuhle is not new to us, but what was new to me was them serving freshly caught trout from the adjoining stream right next to the restaurant!  It was simply fried with almond butter and was delicious!

Hubby, the meat eater and not so much a fish fan had scnitzel, what else :-p

Dancing Fish Malay Indo Restaurant @ Bangsar Shopping Centre

My top choice for good Malay food in atmospheric surrounding is Bijan, downtown in Kuala Lumpur.  It is quite a distance for me to reach unfortunately, so, when a friend suggested BSC, it was a no brainer. And I was not dissapointed!

A dear friend E was craving for soup so we ordered a small bowl of Prawn in Coconut Soup. Be warned ... its nothing like tomyum as it was sweet with no savoury after taste?  Really strange indeed.

We had better luck with Daging Masak Kicap.  According to the girls, it was super yum.  Tender and flavourful as how it should be.

The dish that inspired the name of the restaurant did live up to its name.  Skillfully sliced and then deep fried, the Dancing Fish was a feast to the eye and succulent to the taste bud.  A total must have when you dine here.

Another mention worthy dish is Taufu Telur, crispy on the outside but soft and delectatable on the inside.  I don´t mind being vegetarian if I were to be serve them daily.  So good.

Lastly Ayam Rendang, something Malay to satisfy my inner craving.  Done pretty well, creamy and flavourful as how it should be. 

Overall, I love the dining experience here.  Their food are all prepared authentically, prices seems reasonably and service were pretty prompt too. 

Totally recommended!

Kanbe Ramen & Tours de Jours @ Empire Damansara

It was not too long ago when I got greeted by these magnificent coloured string display near a new builing during my visit back to my home city.  Some new development would inevitably sprung up, without fail, every single year when I am back visiting.  This new development is just 5 minutes drive from my home.  Hubby would be very please to hang out here, as he loves tall buildings including our condominium back in Petaling Jaya.

Seeing these pictures make me miss my friends more!  So carefree, easy going and fun people!  I, P and S decided to treat me to ramen lunch one day.  How do I say no to that?!

Before munching, I got treated to some awesome architecture in this part of PJ.  It´s part of an office block with few difference commercial eatery concept.  The one we visited were industrial and I totally dig  it as I am very into industrial style!

We had assorted ramen, gyoza´s and japanese curry rice.  The food here is decent and lighter in flavour if you prefer them this way.  After some days of feasting during Chinese New Year, it´s a lovely change for me!

As if lunch is not enough, we hopped off to a Korean bakery nearby for another round of lite bite.

Tours de Jours is the IN place to pick up a loaf when around the vicinity.  And I can see why.  It all boils down to detail, from shop exterior and interior, to selection on what is on offer (and it ranges to everything under the sun e.g lunch, bread, cakes, coffee), quality of the food and the service rendered, they do it well.

I love every single piece of cake on offer here.  Too bad I was so stuffed and could hardly finish!

Shucked Oyster Bar, Kuala Lumpur

I had a bad impression of oyster the first time I ate it!  Good that I gave it another go because a really good one is something I would travel far some kilometres for.  Back in February, I was fortunate to try out the latest oyster bar chain sprouting in my home city.  Shucked as its simply called, carries all the varieties imaginable from down under to european ones in France, Netherlands, UK and Scotland. I was told Scottish oysters are one of the best but was unfortunate that it ran out in this outlet!

And so I tried the sampler of 3 from UK and Netherland ones.  Don´t have its name though.  I was impressed with the Netherland ones and the shore being just two hours drive from where I am right now, it is not time for me to sign up their Oyster farming experience and eat as much as I can when the season is here?
