Seafood Pot @Lucky King Bun, Seremban (New Outlet)

Do you remember the famous Curry Chicken Bun from Lukut? I used to dapao the curry bun whenever I goes to Port Dickson.

Now, they’ve opened a new outlet in Seremban. Very near towards the Seremban exit toll. More convenient for travelers. Convenient for me too! hehe….

Their name appeared on our local food programs & at Tripadvisor.

Curry Chicken Bun is their signature item. Today, they prepare not only curry chicken bun. But also Curry Pork Ribs Bun & also Ying Yong Bun (Curry Pork Ribs & Dongpo Pork). These are all ideal for sharing.

One fine day, I decided to bring my family here for dinner. We didn’t want to eat the bun. We heard about this seafood pot available here. We went ahead ordering that.

The seafood pot comes in 2 sizes. Regular (2-5pax) at RM80 & Large (6-10pax) at RM120. I ordered the regular size…because it was just 4 adults.

Seafood Pot; a combination of milky & mild curry soup, fused with seafood ingredients such as crabs, prawns, cuttlefish, mussels and handmade meatballs served in a boiling pot. It is served with rice noodles (bihun) to go along with the soup & seafood.

I honestly don’t think the regular size pot is sufficient for 5 pax la…unless you add on other dishes or you are a very small eater.

In this case, of course I ordered extra dishes. :-D

Stir Fry Choy Sum

(the actual vege was actually green color…due to the lighting here..it looked a lil yellowish)

Smoked Duck

The interior looked quite retro. Yellow lighting with black & white mosaic flooring…

a vintage bicycle…

and this! Do you know what is this? Its a music player. I remember seeing this during my teenage age. Very rare to see this nowadays.

Verdict: The seafood pot was not bad. The broth/soup was tasty and the seafood was quite fresh too. I also like the smoked duck. I do advise you to call for reservation, especially on those curry buns. Because its quite sellable especially during weekends.

Tea Break @Just Koffea, Seremban 2

Waahhh…finally its open for business. Feeling anticipated for this cafe to open at my neighborhood. It has been on renovation for the past few months. As soon as I knew about the opening, I whatsapp to my ‘yam cha’ kaki, Wei Chi about this place. ‘Ehh….got new place to hangout’. Ok la…we go next week.

As I enter, the ‘Tatami’ section has caught my attention. Therefore we decided to sit here.

They did a raised platform for the Tatami section. Only 3 tables with 3 seats each at this section. The seat was quite comfortable also wor…

Well, there are also sofa and wooden stool seats.

Quite a nice place to hangout.

Barista at work.

Cakes on display. The choices of cakes were quite limited. May be still new?

As we seated, we were given a one sheet menu. Simple and straight forward. Well, menu not necessarily to be complicated right? Then, a friendly staff came over to take our order.

Wei Chi ordered a glass of Iced Latte (RM10.80)

I ordered a cuppa Flat White (Hot) – RM9.80. When the staff handed the cuppa drink to me, she apologized for a not so nice coffee art. My friend and I then responded, it looks alright. No worries.

We wanted to try some light food. So we ordered Egg Benedict On Toast – RM18.80, for sharing.

Chicken Ham, Cheddar Cheese topped with poached egg with hollandaise sauce and served with fresh salad.

It was quite delicious, we felt. Most importantly is the runny yolk.

A slice of Black Forest Cake – RM14.80 to sum up our meal. The sponge was moist and the chocolate mousse was quite rich.  :-)

Overall, the food and drinks quality were not bad. Services was alright too.

The Al-Fresco dining area looks nice too. But will be abit warm during hot weather although there’s a ceiling fan.

Tea Break @Be My Friend Cafe, Seremban

On a sunny afternoon, we were feeling so thirsty. All I wanted was a cuppa refreshing and icy drink to quench my thirst. While driving back from the mall, my sister mentioned about this new cafe she saw on Facebook. Without hesitation, we went straight to the cafe.

Be My Friend Cafe is located at Centrio Avenue of Seremban 2 – nearby Mydin Mall. Opened since end of October 2015. Its located on 1st floor, so you might miss out this place.

We walked up the stairs to where this cafe located. As we enter, this is the environment of the cafe. Simple and homely feel.

*self service mode* List of beverages are written on the chalk board. They also have light food like; sandwiches, pancakes, waffles.

Cakes available here are freshly baked. Fondant cupcakes are available upon ordering; ie: for parties & weddings.

These caught my attention. It was placed at the counter. Lovely fondant cupcake topper for newborn.

I felt this is the best seating angle/position in this cafe. You get view + most of the natural lighting.

All of us ordered the thirst killer drinks. LOL! :-D
So that I can have another reason to visit this place for some freshly brewed coffee.

Iced Blueberry Tea – RM6.90

A drink with mixture of tea & blueberry. I personally like this drink. Tasted like Ribena with a hint of tea.

Rosemary Pineapple Soda – RM7.90
Very refreshing. Perfect on a hot & sunny day.
I observed that all drinks are prepare on the spot.

Chicken Quesadilla with tomato pico de gayo – RM13.90 (a Mexican cuisine)

Crispy Tortilla filled with grilled chicken, pepper and cheese served withtomato pico de gayo (made from chopped tomato, onion, cilantro, salt, and key lime juice.)

Chocolate Sauce with Banana Waffle – RM12.90

Slices of bananas were sandwiched in between this nicely stacked waffle. A scoop of vanilla ice cream comes together with the serving. Extra chocolate sauce were served with the waffle too. The combinations were good to be eaten when its served hot.

This place is quite relaxing. A nice place to hangout if you prefer a quieter atmosphere. Furthermore the service was good too. I was informed that soon they’ll be adding more items into their menu.

Vietnamese Lunch @Mother Dung Restaurant, Seremban

There’s a newly opened Vietnamese restaurant located at the new shop lots at Jalan Lobak. Few doors away from the overwhelmed ‘Bak Cheok’ dim sum.

a simple and casual restaurant mend by Vietnamese serving Vietnamese food. The owner (a couple) are quite friendly.

If you have no idea what to order…they will give suggestions.

Pork Vietnam Mee Hun Soup – RM8.00

If you like a simple type of noodle…this may suits you. Jet enjoyed eating this bowl of noodle. The mee hun were not hard…he could easily chew and swallow it. (you can request for extra soup)

Banh Mi is the famous Vietnamese Baguette. You may choose your choice of filling. Ranging from Vietnamese Ham, Pork to Vegetables.

I chose Vietnamese Ham – RM9.00

Not really a wise choice. Cause I felt the filling was abit dry. Maybe I should choose BBQ Pork or Minced Pork which could be even tastier. However, the bread was nice. Crispy outside but soft inside.

Vietnam Spring Roll

I like this!! Dip it in their chili sauce…uhh la la. Every bite was flavorful. The translucent spring rolls packed with greens, coriander and tasty pork cutlets. (contains basil leaf..if you dislike the taste of basil leaf, maybe you can inform them to omit using it)

“Traditional Vietnamese cooking is greatly admired for its fresh ingredients, minimal use of dairy and oil, complementary textures, and reliance on herbs and vegetables. With the balance between fresh herbs and meats and a selective use of spices to reach a fine taste, Vietnamese food is considered one of the healthiest cuisines worldwide.”

Dinner @Rantau Happy Restaurant, Negeri Sembilan

Last month, my friend Wei Chi planned for a dinner trip to Rantau. Its just a 30 minutes driving distance from Seremban town. If you are driving from Seremban 2 or Mambau, its even nearer.

Wei Chi claimed that this restaurant is located at a fish pond. Hmm…it seems nowadays people quite fancy bout this type of restaurant.

As shown on the photo above which I copied from their FB page…you can see that there are 2 floating decks above the pond. It can fit up to probably 8 tables in total. You can also opt to be seated on ground area, which is slightly away from the view of pond. Since Wei Chi is more familiar with this place…Jessie & I leave the food ordering part to her & her HB, Andy.

As we arrived, Jet was happily checking out the place when I pointed to him, water & fishes. I believed there are many Talapia in the pond.

 

Come early before 7pm to watch the sunset here.

Wei Chi & Jessie….both are my primary & secondary school friends.

HAHAHA….a photo to proof that we were there! :-D :-D

The dishes were served quite fast. Steamed Egg (beneath) topped with beancurd & minced pork – RM10

Fried Sotong (Squids) in Salted Egg – RM16

Spinach Soup with Century Egg & Goji – RM8

Deep Fried Pork Knuckle in Thai Style – RM48

Marmite Sauce Crab – RM60/kg.

Overall, the food was good in terms of taste & freshness. Furthermore I felt the prices are affordable too. Services were alright. No complain.

After the dinner, my friends surprised me with a birthday cake! It was a fruit cake from our town’s renowned brand, Imbi Cake House.

Thank you girls!

My birthday cakes of year 2015. I’m blessed to have my family, friends & colleagues whom celebrated my 2015 birthday on different days.

Brunch @Chars Cafe, Uptown Avenue Seremban 2

Weekends can never go wrong with cafe hopping!

On one fine weekend, I decided to visit this so-called new cafe in my neighborhood together with my family.

One may overlook this cafe because of its simple exterior.

But the interior is not bad. Cosy and comfortable seating place.

The light bulbs lighting are pretty nice and creative.

The interior design of this cafe is quite nice too.

With all the wordings on the wall….will it gives you more inspirations in writing? hehe….

Jet was getting excited with the helium balloon (the black one). It says there “Will You Marry Me”. Someone must have done a marriage proposal here. Aww..Such a sweet guy.

Chars Cafe practices ‘self service’. The huge menu board is placed visibly on the wall. Just place your order at their counter.

**only cash term**

Chars Cafe offers breakfast set at price of RM16.90 and RM17.90 which inclusive of a cuppa coffee. Choose from; ‘Americano, Cappuccino or Latte.

We had Cappuccino & Latte. Their coffee is quite rich and aromatic. Not forgetting also a neat coffee art.

Their simple breakfast set.

I opt for the latter; ‘Chars Breakfast Set’ which comprised of croissant, button mushrooms, baked beans, scrambled eggs & a cheesy sausage. I like their fresh & crispy croissant.

Besides this, we also ordered their Aglio Olio Spaghetti with Wild Mushroom at priced of RM9.80 which I felt it tasted so so only.

The brown sugar in a mini glass + crooked spoon caught my attention. Can’t help but to capture the image of it. :-D

Chocolate Waffle (RM12.90) was made fresh. Comes with double scoop of chocolate ice cream and sprinkled with chocolate sauce & coco krunch!

Will pay another visit to try their cakes. Looks good….

Bros.Cafe, a Korean Dessert Cafe @Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2

I noticed the blooming numbers of Korean cafe in Klang Valley.

Not going to be a loser…Seremban here also has a nice & cosy Korean cafe. Hehehe…. Anyeong Anyeong ;-)

Fret not…its featured on this web leh… *wasehhh*

http://hype.my/noms/9-kickass-korean-cafes-we-love/

Bros cafe occupying both ground and first floor of the building, strategically located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. Merely 10 minutes drive after the Seremban toll exit.

I visited this cafe on 2 different occasions.

First visit was with my schoolmate@buddy, Wei Chi for a tea break.

Self service and only *cash term.

Orders are separated for ground and first floor. Cakes and drinks, you’ll have to place your order at ground floor. While for desserts/ bingsoo you gotto order it upstairs. Which I felt its quite troublesome. Imagine carrying the tray of bingsoo walking down the stairs. Luckily I didn’t roll down the steps. LMAO!

The upstairs counter to order bingsoo.

The all round windows made the cafe look bright and spacious.

some deco on the counter.

A guitar for display and some Korean products for sale.

Latte – RM9

The kind waitress gave up some colorful glutinous rice to go along with the drink.

Cappuccino – RM9

*I like the heart shape ♥ drawn on my drink*

“I was taken by the power that savoring a simple cup of coffee can have to connect people and create community.

~Howard Schultz
Bingsoo is a signature dessert in a Korean cafe. So we decided to order one and to share the serving.
~Types of Bingsoo served here~
I couldn’t decide which flavor to choose…the waiter recommended this Strawberry (RM20).
Snow ice mountain dish topped with cornflakes, red bean, and Haagen-dazs vanilla ice cream with glaze of strawberry syrup.
On a different occasion, I visited Bros cafe for the 2nd time during my sister’s birthday.
Dislike coffee? Perhaps you can go for Yuja Tea(RM9). A traditional Korean tea (herbal tea) made from the citrus fruit yuzu. Yuja (유자) fruit is thinly sliced with its peel and combined with honey or sugar, prepared as fruit preserves or marmalade.
Iced Latte – RM9
Nok Cha Milky – RM12 *recommended*
Nok-cha (green tea) is organic one all the way from Jeju Island, Korea. Its milky, creamy hence rich green tea taste for green tea lovers.
Cakes for the birthday gal… Choc Ganache Cake (RM13).
Banana Cloud Cakes – RM13
Not overwhelmed with the cakes. Somehow felt its a lil pricey.
Cacao Island Bingsoo – RM20 *recommended*
Snow ice mountain dish topped with cocoa puffs, cocoa Powder, Sweet Chocolate,
Haagen-dazs vanilla ice cream with glaze of milky chocolate syrup. Ideal for chocolate lovers….. like me! :-)
Before you leave…you can bring home some coffee grounds use for eliminating foul smell/ household odors. Its FOC anyway.

Happy Halloween @The Coffee Parlour, Seremban 2

What is Halloween?

Halloween is a secular holiday combining vestiges of traditional harvest festival celebrations with customs more peculiar to the occasion such as costume wearing, trick-or-treating, pranksterism, and decorative imagery based on the changing of the seasons, death, and the supernatural. It takes place on October 31.

Though it was regarded up until the last few decades of the 20th century as primarily a children’s holiday, in more recent years activities such as costume parties, themed decorations, and even trick-or-treating have grown increasingly popular with adults as well, making Halloween a celebration for all ages.

 

Did you participated in any Halloween party?

The Coffee Parlour at Seremban 2 has came up with the idea of introducing Halloween set meal in conjunction to Halloween day. The Halloween set meal was available from 25/10/2014 till 31/10/2014 for just RM18.80.

At The Coffee Parlour, they also serve aromatic coffee and cakes are made fresh.

This was the Halloween Set Meal. Eerie? Gross?

Earthworms topped with Brain Sauce

Its actually Spaghetti Bolognaise. Fingers are made of sausages. Nails are made of almond flakes. Eyes are made of hard boiled egg with olives.

The Witch’s Potion

Its actually F&N carbonated drinks with lychees+cherry.

Sweetened Graveyard

Its actually cookie crumbs+chocolate mousse

Lets eat dirt! Hahaha :-D :-D

It was a fun Halloween lunch! The menu was creative and the food was good. Although I felt the fingers (sausages) were quite ‘geli’ while eating it.

Wishing everyone Happy Halloween and have a nice weekend :-)

Brunch @Coffee & Dreams, Seremban 2

I am not a heavy coffee drinker. But I love the fact that there are more coffee joints opened in Seremban 2. Currently there are 4 (did I miss out any?). 4 is definitely a small number compared to KL. Anyhow…quality is more important than quantity right? hehe….

I’ve just visited Coffee & Dreams located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. The so-called happening place in Seremban 2 with restaurants and pubs.

I enjoyed having a cuppa aromatic coffee in a cosy environment.

“A coffee a day keeps the doctor away”

Lets see if Coffee & Dreams is ‘my cup of tea’.

Cakes, muffins, pudding and pastries are served here.

I also like the quiet and calm environment when I was there. Service was not bad too.

Selections of ‘hot drinks’ on their menu.

The current on going promotion for breakfast, lunch and tea time which I thought its a good deal.

The free glass of watermelon juice upon ordering lunch from their on going promotion.

Latte

Chocolate Mint

Cappuccino

Full Spaghetti with Ham – RM15.90

The spaghetti bolognese was alright but not memorable.

Chicken Chop

Skinless and boneless chicken chop was grilled to perfection and drizzled with fragrant black pepper sauce. Alongside with some greens. The chicken meat was tender and also tasty. Quite good.

I wanted to try their waffle. Therefore I went for original flavor;

Butter & Syrup Waffle – RM6.90

The waffle turn out to be quite nice. Not dry but fluffy.

Mille Crepe (Vanilla). There were actually few other flavors…but I chose to try the original flavor. Want to try the originality ma… hehe.. Unfortunately I felt that their mille crepe was just average. Too much cream I felt. A nice mille crepe shouldn’t look collapsing, right?

This “I dunno what name” chocolate cake was better.

Yay…I finally got the chance to taste this handmade pudding by Sweet Montage. There were few other flavors, but I chose Salted Gula Melaka. Price at RM7.90 for a small jar… a lil pricey?? But I love everything from the packaging, the taste and the texture. Wobbly texture and wasn’t too sweet. Like a combination of custard & tau fu fah :-)

Verdict: If you notices… I actually visited Coffee & Dreams on 2 different occasions. First round was for drinks and cakes…2nd round to sample the food. Eventually the drinks (coffee) tasted better on my 2nd visit… first visit made me felt that the coffee taste was rather mild. I hope they will be more consistent in brewing their coffee. Will definitely return for more coffee and food ;-)

Big Mouth Burger, New Burger Outlet @Seremban

Big Mouth Burger, the new burger place in Seremban. I’m glad that the burger fever from KL has finally arrived in Seremban. To cater for Seremban folks. *Hepi*

Honestly I couldn’t catch up with the burger fever in KL. Too many choices already. LOL!

I gotto know about Big Mouth Burger via reading Sean’s post Big Mouth Burger @ Bandar Sunway

Thanks to Sean for sharing this new location.

I dropped a message on their Facebook page to inquire about the opening day because I wanted to pay a visit on that weekend, right after reading Sean’s post. hehe…. Got a replied message from them and was happy to know that they’ll open for business on Saturday. So, I decided to go there for dinner on that day itself.

I went there on Saturday night. But the official opening day was on Sunday. The place was quite vacant when I arrived. But later, customers started coming in. Not much though…probably not many people know about their existence yet.

Using construction material such as scaffolding, safety helmets as part of the interior deco.

self service basis just like other fast food joint.

Together with my mom and my brother, we were there to try out their burger. Looking at the menu, looks like there are more beef choices than chicken. Unfortunately we don’t take beef…looks like not much of choice for us. However I was told that, in future they’ll gonna add in more chicken choice into their menu. Well…that’s a good thing ;-)

Types of sauce for your burger and fries.

Ya…. you do need a ‘Big Mouth’ for their 8 inch size, Big Mouth Burger! :-D

I chose Bloody Mary (RM15.80) under the Veggie category. Flamed grilled juicy tomato, mushrooms on hash brown finished with cheese. The fries are served together with the burger.

I like their charcoal bun which is soft and fluffy. I also like their hash brown and fries. They are crispy but not dry.

Mom and brother picked Pearl Harbour (RM13.80) – under the Chicken category. Flame grilled juicy old fashion teriyaki patties topped with cheese and sandwich with deep fried onion rings.

Side view of ‘Pearl Harbour’.  I like the patty. Its tasty and juicy. The onion rings are addictive too. Nice nibbling stuff.

Verdict : You can also add on cheese or beef bacon to your burger. Soft drinks and hot drinks are priced from RM2.80. I find that their onion rings (RM4.50 for 10pcs) are pretty affordable. Sampling both burgers here, I preferred ‘Pearl Harbour’.
