Dinner @Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches, The Gardens Mall

Welcome….. Oink Oink Oink.

That’s how we were greeted that night.

Last month, in conjunction to Mother’s Day celebration, I brought my mom, my sister to celebrate our Mother’s Day at Ticklish Ribs & ‘Wiches, The Gardens Mall. This is their second outlet after the first outlet at Sea Park, PJ.


To play safe, I called to make a reservation for 7pm. The dining hall was already 3/4 occupied when we arrived *phew*.
Apart from that, the dining hall is very colorful and looked interesting too.


You know you are in serious PIG mode when you noticed the whole load of pigs surrounding you…

Not forgetting the tagline; “Confirm Gila Babi” which I find it hilarious. πŸ˜€

We spent some reading time due to the extensive Menu, consist of rice, pasta, salad, sandwiches.

This place is all about pork pork pork and more pork. Bring it on, the gila babi!

We started off with the Signature BBQ Pork Ribs (Full-6 ribs) RM45. I opted for non spicy because the kids can’t take spicy.


Caramelized, tender and juicy pork ribs I got here! Even, my home *Gordon Ramsay gave an approval on this πŸ˜€

Curry Sloppy Fries RM10

Curry Sloppy Fries was really good! Very special I felt. French fries topped with rich curry minced pork sauce & melted cheese. Ohhh, so sinful….but so memorable πŸ˜€

Ham Tan (salted egg) lover = Happily Ham Sup ^_^

Salted Egg Fried Pasta (got balls) RM18


Ohh, I love balls. I meant pork balls. The al-dente pasta was nicely coated with salted egg. Not too much of salted egg but just nice. As for the pork balls, it was tasty and meaty.

Hoi Lam Ting (Rice)Β  RM20

There’s rice, pork cutlets, gravy (sauce), salad as side.
I’m a gravy person. I poured in the gravy and stirred it well before eating the rice. I am an Asian. I am a Tong Nasi. I definitely love rice..LOL!

Upon ordering the (Full-6pcs) ribs, we are entitled for the “Kids Eat For Free” dish. Choice of dish for the “Kids Eat for Free” was quite limited. Thus we chose Rice Vice.

The portion is of full size. It has generous gravy on rice, topped with an egg and slices of fried chicken cutlet which was tender too. Every mouthful of rice was so flavorful due to the gravy. The kids like it too.
Rice Vice look quite similar to Katsudon. I actually preferred this over Hoi Lam Ting πŸ™‚

 

In conjunction to Mother’s Day, for every RM100 spent, we got a complimentary Lazy Bones Wrap. Too much food to handle, we gotto take home this wrap.

I think mom enjoyed the food here. Happy Mother’s day mummy πŸ™‚

The face of kena forced to take photo >.<

I felt the dishes served here are quite family friendly. They have spicy, non-spicy, rice or pasta to cater for both children & the elderly. Furthermore the twist of Asian~Western flavors suited our local taste very well. Apart from that, if you dislike pork, there’s a small selection of fish & chicken dishes on the menu.

Chili Fighter @Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2

source from Chili Fighter

Chili Fighter, a new restaurant is opened at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. But what do they serve? Looking by its name, I could sensed something flaming there πŸ˜€

Let’s check it out.

The modern and sophisticated interior. Furthermore, it is cosy and air conditioned giving you the comfortability of dining experience with family and friends.

At Chili Fighter, its a whole new dining experience in Seremban. Bringing to you the Sichuan flavors all the way from China.

Where did you get the inspiration to open this restaurant in Seremban?

During my trip to China, I tasted the food there which I felt it was delicious. This is one of the popular food there. Hence it gave me the inspiration to start up one here in Seremban. I made several trips there; for the recipe, the ingredients. Apart from that, my chefs were sent there for training to ensure the flavors and taste are alike, replied Mr. Ang the owner of Chili Fighter.

A simple menu showing how to place an order.

Step 1: Select Vegetable/Meat

Step 2: Select Flavor (different types of chili flavor)

Step 3: Select the level of spiciness (super spicy,spicy, average or mild)

Although the menu is only printed in Chinese, but the staffs may assist you upon ordering.
(By the way, they are in the midst of preparing the English menu)

Ingredients are nicely arranged in trays in the refrigerator to retain its freshness.

The non-cooked ingredients are of assorted vegetables, meat & seafood.


Helen, helping herself to pick her choice of ingredients to be cook by the chef later on.

One of the staff there trying to explain to Helen, that for ingredients that are weighed above 500gram, you can choose to cook it in 2 different flavors.

Price is determined by its weight.Hence, you can see that the ingredients that we’ve picked is been weighed.
Sichuan cuisine, from Sichuan Province, is famous for its particularly “mΓ‘lΓ ” numbingΒ (ιΊ») and spicyΒ (θΎ£)Β  taste resulting from liberal use of garlic and chili peppers, as well as the unique numbing flavor of Sichuan peppercorn.

We were recommended with the Crystal Fish (fish price varies from RM70 to RM90 depending on type of fish). Price is inclusive of ingredients as shown in photo. You may have some additional add on orders from the menu. i.e: extra lotus roots, vegetables, & etc. The fish dish portion is quite big. Above is “mΓ‘lΓ ” flavor. I can take spicy food. But with ‘average spicy’ level is already sufficient to me.

So, why is it called Crystal Fish? Its called crystal fish because of the transparent like serving tray. Fish and necessary ingredients were all placed on the transparent tray then bring to boil on an induction cooker. This is cook at your dining table. Therefore you could experience the slowly simmer process.

We were also served with a different flavor called ‘Hot & Sour’ (ι…ΈθΎ£).

When its started to boil, means its ready to dig in! πŸ˜€

Β check out the bright red color soup base and the amount of dried chilies. I could feel the mild numbness on my tongue. But I wanted more. Because it is very ‘shiok’. The broth was flavorsome and spicy too.

The stir fry η”°ι›ž (“field chicken”) with lotsa onions and long beans has milder spiciness. I do like the taste of its meat. It was tasty and tender.

 

Remember the ingredients we’ve picked earlier? The above 2 dishes were cooked in 2 different flavors. 2 different types of chili were used.

And one of the highlight was this chili used in the above dish.

These dishes are best to be eaten with a bowl of rice.


You can’t leave without having these drinks to chill you. πŸ˜€

Can you tolerate the spiciness? Dare to challenge yourself with more spicy food at Chili Fighter?

What’s more…Chili Fighter is offering 20% discount during the Grand Opening Day on 31 May 2017 .

Dazzling Cafe @Midvalley Megamall

The spot of for Gardens Lifestyle Cafe has been replaced by a well known cafe originate from Taiwan.

Dazzling Cafe is the name.

As quoted by Dazzling Cafe, it has been named one of the most famous cafes in Taiwan. Hence it is commonly frequented by celebrities and socialites and has been crowned as “A Celebrity Hotspot.”

Not only famous for its media personalities, but it is also renowned for its chic and classy interior decor.

I do agree that this cafe looks elegant and classy yet trendy. I guessed it also attracts much attention from shoppers because it is located near the link bridge connecting both Midvalley Megamall and The Gardens Mall. The bunny ears chairs looked catchy.

Turquoise & Grey color decorative flowers covering the wall and handrail towards the loaf area making it a nice backdrop for photo shooting.

Dazzling Cafe also serves All Day Breakfast

There wasn’t much choice of ‘main course’ dish. I was told that the Honey Toast is good and its their popular dessert here. Hmmm….that makes me think, most likely people come here for their dessert or during tea break.

We started off with Mentaiko Spaghetti with Cream Sauce RM29.90. It is a recommended dish shown on the menu. Mentaiko is Pollock Roe, tossed in the al-dente creamy spaghetti topped with nori seaweed. A few scallops were added to it. I like the crunchy roe texture on every bite of my spaghetti.

We also ordered a set of All day Breakfast. We chose Classic Big Breakfast RM25, which consist of grilled sausage, beef bacon, baked beans, sauteed mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, and scrambled eggs. The big breakfast was just alright. Quite normal I felt.

For the main course, we also ordered a Oven Roasted Whole Chicken Leg RM30.90. Roasted chicken paired with garlic cream spinach, sauteed mushroom. The chicken was tasty and tender. I do like the garlic cream spinach sauce eaten with the chicken. However I find the sauce abit salty.

Last but not least, we end our meal with the signature toast, Dazzling Classic Honey Toast RM20.90. Cubes of thick toast were stacked up in 2 layers, then topped with a scoop ofΒ  HΓ€agen-Dazs ice cream and dripping strawberry sauce. The toast was slightly warm, a lil crust on the outer layer but fluffy and soft inside. I could taste the hint butter in it too. Was the yellow creamy thing, some sort of custard? Because it tasted like custard to me. πŸ™‚ Anyway, the toast was very nice to be eaten with ice cream.

We wrapped up the meal with a lovely group photo taken here at Dazzling Cafe.

Verdict: Dazzling Cafe has nice ambiance. A nice dining place with friends and family. Food prices are on the high side. The only thing that I would love to re-visit is for the Honey Toast.

Dine & Shop at Hello Kitty House Bangkok

Hands up if you are one of the Hello Kitty fan πŸ™‚

Hello Kitty is an official Sanrio character. I adore Hello Kitty for its cuteness. I believed everyone has an inner child in them. hehe….

Hello Kitty Gourmet Cafe at Sunway Pyramid, I didn’t get the chance to visit. But during my recent travel to Bangkok, I tried to insert Hello Kitty House into my itinerary. There are many theme cafes at Bangkok now.

I was told that Hello Kitty House Bangkok is a cafe cum shop cum spa place.

Hello Kitty House is opened at Siam Square One. It is a multi storey building located along a busy road. Besides that, it is strategically located near BTS Siam Station. Its just a walking distance.

 

Jeng jeng jeng….we were here at Hello Kitty House Bangkok for a tea break.

The dining hall is furnished with pink pastal color chairs, walls and warm lighting making it looked so sweet & lovely.

The staff lead us to our seats. But as soon as I sat down and quickly placed an order, I couldn’t stop taking photos. LOL! Every angle and corners are worth taking photos. Its just too lovely.

Assorted cakes of the day were displayed here.

I also went upstairs. As I walked up the bright white color staircase leading up to the following floor ………………

I reached the upper floor which look grandeur and romantic! The upper floor is much brighter due to the tall windows surrounding the hall.

Apart from that, the chairs, the windows…..all are of Hello Kitty. Literally melts. I wonder if anyone throw a wedding reception here. Feels so romantic lar.

Hello Kitty & Dear Daniel β™₯

The colorful menu.

I ordered the sandwich set which comes with a drink for 250 baht.

Ham & Cheese Kitty Sandwich

For drink, I chose Hot Chocolate with a kitty face. Aiyohh….how to drink la….must admire kao kao first before damaging it.

My friend chose the Hello Kitty Tumbler set for 399 baht from the monthly promo. I assumed the monthly promo may varies each month. The set comes with a Fries, a drink filled in the hello kitty tumbler. There were choice of 3 designs.

the cute tumbler that filled with Iced Milk Tea.

Everything is about Hello Kitty here…even the theme song that is constantly repeating, I could still remember and hum the song. Tell me about it…I know it can be annoying to some people. πŸ˜€

More posing πŸ˜€

After done with our light tea break & photo taking, we went downstairs at lower ground floor for more hello kitty merchandises.

very nice to see, but not so nice for my wallet. Because the prices were not cheap…moreover with out poor currency 😦

This is a very nice place even if you are not a hello kitty fan. Furthermore, I think this place is meant to attract girls… πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ mainly for the ambiance and the hello kitty character…but not really about the food. Hello Kitty is main, food is secondary.

Arabic Food at Restoran Belqis, Centrio Seremban 2

Recently, I had a good introduction of Arabian food at Restoran Belqis. Honestly, it was my first experience of trying out Arabic food.

To give you a clearer picture of Arabic food, the Arabic food is mainly a combination of Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Indian food. It has been affected by the mingling of Arab and non-Arabs over the centuries.

The common herbs and spices used in Arabic food are; sesame, saffron, black pepper, allspice, turmeric, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, parsley and coriander. While for meat, chicken or lamb are used in most of the dishes.

Restoran Belqis is located at Centrio, Seremban 2 next to Soong Sisters Boutique. This restaurant is facing the main road.

A leftlet printed with their specialty dishes.

Chefs and servers are of Yemeni, offering you an authentic Arabic food.

Nothing too fancy but simple decorations with lamps and wall arts also the Arabian music played on background…you are definitely sure the purpose of you here. πŸ˜€

We started off with Hot Arabic Tea, one of the favorite hot tea in Arabic cuisine. It is black tea brewed with cardamom, clove and mint. If you like the milk tea version, then evaporated milk and cube sugar will be added to it.

Tabbouleh

is a vegetarian dish/salad made with finely chopped tomatoes, parsley and onions, seasoned with lime juice and olive oil.

Mix Grill

A combination of lamb shish kebab and chicken kebab, served with fries and greens. As for the dipping sauce, chili sauce and garlic cream sauce were given.

Shish kebab is a dish consisting of small cubes of meat or fish threaded on a skewer and grilled.

Salta

Salta is considered the national dish of Yemen.

The base is a brown meat stew called maraq, a dollop of fenugreek froth, and sahawiq or sahowqa (a mixture of chillies, tomatoes, garlic, and herbs ground into a salsa). Rice, potatoes, scrambled eggs, and vegetables are common additions to salta. It is eaten traditionally with Yemeni flat bread, which serves as a utensil to scoop up the food.

You are required to stir the dish before eating. The above is the result of after stirring. Now you can use their signature flat bread to scoop them up and eaten with it.

I must say that the combination was awesome! The thin and lightly crisp buttery flatbread goes perfectly with the salta.

Yemeni flatbread is eaten with bean dishes, scrambled eggs, and many other Yemeni savory dishes. It is made much like pizza dough with water, yeast, salt, and flour. Then, it is kneaded very well and set to rise and later cut to large rounds. Each round is then stretched, and warm ghee is spread over the stretched dough, it is folded over and more ghee is applied, and this process is repeated 1-3 times. All sides are pinched together to form a neat ball. After a few minutes of sitting, the round is stretched into a flat circular shape and placed on a makhbaza that is used in placing the dough on the wall of a hot taboon much like the tandoor. It is then glazed withΒ  ghee and baked until the bottom is brown and with some browning on top.

Ta Daa…this rice platter was star of the day. Sufficient to serve a family or a group of friends. Combination of 4 different kind of rice.

Hanith Chicken/Lamb – is a type of dish where the lamb or chicken are wrapped in an aluminium foil with Arabian spices.

Kabsa Chicken/Lamb – is a type of rice which is served with chicken or lamb that are boiled using Arabian spices.

The rice was fluffy and not oily. It can be eaten with the light curry gravy or the rather appetizing (parsley+onion+tomatoes+olive oil+lime juice) gravy.

Hanith Lamb

Hanith dish can be served with any type of rice but preferable with mandhi rice. Hence, Mandhi is a traditional dish from Yemen. Mandhi is usually made from basmati rice, meat (lamb or chicken), and a mixture of spices. The meat used is usually a young and small sized lamb to enhance the taste further.

So, its a Yay or Nay? Why not pay a visit and determine it yourself. πŸ™‚

Food Trucks in Seremban 2

This post is written to share about the food trucks I’ve tried at Seremban 2. Why only Seremban 2? Because there’s where I live ma. :-p

 

What is food truck?

A food truck is a large vehicle equipped to cook and sell food. Some, including ice cream trucks, sell frozen or prepackaged food; others have on-board kitchens and prepare food from scratch. Sandwiches, hamburgers, french fries, and other regional fast food fare is common.

People these days haven taken one step forward on food truck business. Those days, what we often see are pisang goreng, keropok lekor or the Chinese luk luk truck. (I’m referring to Malaysia of course). However those are less ‘glamour’, but still has its crowd.

I am delighted that food trucks in Seremban is slowly gaining its popularity. Unlike in KL, the choices could be more.

1) Quickie Food Truck.

source from Quickie FB page

(source from Quickie FB page)

Quickie’s specialty has to be the fusion spaghetti. Which is my favorite too. I came to try their spaghetti when it was newly open since October 2016. Each order is cook & prepare on the spot. The spaghetti comes in 2 sizes, small (RM6) big (RM9). What I like about their spaghetti is the flavors. Something I have not come across yet. They have Rendang spaghetti, Devil’s Curry spaghetti, Sambal spaghetti and Green Chili spaghetti, Satay Sauce and Butter Milk Chicken. Mutton Curry is available only on weekends. Don’t you think that the flavors are so Malaysian? πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

(above is Mutton Curry Spaghetti, Buttermilk Chicken Spaghetti & Hotdog bun with Satay Sauce)

Note: Only minced chicken is used in the spaghetti.

If you like something fiery/spicy…try out the Devil’s Curry add on bull’s eye egg & hotdog. I was told that Rendang Spaghetti is the current’s bestseller. My favorite pick has to be Devil’s Curry & Green Chili. πŸ™‚

Besides spaghetti, hotdog burger, the above is called Booty Burger. It consists of 2 pieces of chicken patties wrapped with omelette and sandwiched with nacho chips. A pair of hand gloves was given free with it in order to avoid dirty hands. :-p

They also serve this dessert called Mellow Brownie which is our Malaysian kek batik.

This is where you can locate Quickie Food Truck. Located at Jalan S2 B8, in front of Otheroom. Business hour (Monday-Saturday) 7pm-12am. Closed on Sundays. There are tables and chairs for dining customers too. But I chose to dapao all the time πŸ™‚

Follow their FB page to get the latest updates.

2) Food Trucks Behind of Mydin Seremban 2

Scene of all 3 food trucks lined up in a row along Jalan S2 B20, setting up tables and chairs.

This truck is owned by Hunger Food Truck Official

I was told that their specialty is the spaghetti. To be precise, it is Spicy Aglio Olio and Chicken Spaghetti.

This is Nasi Lemak with Lemon Butter Chicken which comes with pickled vegetables.

Here comes the menu of ‘white truck’.

The Assam Laksa. While I was waiting for my food, there are cars stopping by just to pack their Assam Laksa. No doubt it was delicious!

Dishes that are worth trying from the white truck are Nasi Ayam Penyet & Nasi Lemak. Both are good. (sorry no pic to show)

Move on to the school bus. That’s a good idea isn’t it. Definitely caught one’s attention.

I saw people ordering the Chicken Chop

But I ordered the Chicken Schnitzel Burger with black pepper sauce which was alright.

Located at Jalan S2 B20 nearby Mydin S2. Business hour (7pm till late night). Closed on Mondays.

South Indian Food @Narayana Tea Stall, Seremban 2

What are the dishes that come across your mind when I mentioned about Indian Cuisine. “Banana Leaf Rice, Roti Canai, Indian Rojak & Curries”. If you’ve visited an Indian Restaurant before, you will be aware that the list does not stop there.

 

Indian cuisine can be divided into two mainstreams, North Indian and South Indian cuisine.

If you are in the vicinity of Seremban 2, you have to make a visit to Narayana Tea Stall serving South Indian Food.

Located at Uptown Avenue, Narayana Tea Stall start operating since September 2016 to serve the Malaysians a hearty Indian fare.

A retro concept restaurant with warm lighting, wall canvas prints, black leather seats, black and white floor tiles, creates a vibrant atmosphere. A nice place to gather family & friends.

Here, at the drinks counter, we watches Bakhi – the staff prepares drinks and his pulling (tarik) process to make a glass of nice teh tarik.

Their Tea or commonly known as Teh by the locals is the best seller.

Both husband and wife, the owner of Narayana Tea Stall.

…..together with their buddy Jasonraj and the experienced Chef Kicha. They are the important people to make great of this restaurant.

When asked, what is your best dish? “There’s no one ‘best dish’, because all our dishes are good”, laughed Sobana Krishnan – the lady boss who’s looking poise in her beautiful saree.

She also assured that food quality is their main concern here.

You can’t go without curry in an Indian cuisine. Spices are like the heart of Indian cooking. Spices are freshly ground. Spices that are commonly used are cumin, coriander, turmeric, fennel, mustard, clove star anise, cinnamon. Both fresh and dried chili are used in varying degrees for different curries.

Paneer 65

Paneer is a homemade Indian cheese. Its a delicious snack prepared by deep-frying spicy paste coated paneer cubes.

Onion Pakoda

Onion pakoda are deep fried snack that are made with chickpea flour, salt, light spices and onion (the main ingredient). It was light and crunchy. This can be an addictive snack/starter while waiting for your main food to arrive.

Chicken Pakoda

Similar recipe used as onion pakoda but the main ingredients is replaced with chicken slices.

Pepper Mushroom

A simple stir fry button mushrooms with black pepper.

Vegetarian Chicken

This is a vegetarian dish. Chicken is made of soy base.

Boneless Pepper Fish

Mysore Mutton

I usually do not like mutton, because of it has a very strong and distinctive flavor. However at Narayana Tea Stall, it did not stop me from trying. The ‘strong’ aftertaste was pretty mild and acceptable for me.

Chili Gobi

Gobi stands for cauliflower. This is a dish of cauliflower cooked with chili. Chilli Gobi is a tasty, lip-smacking dish which is loved by both vegetarian and non-vegetarian.

Ginger Chicken, was cooked with onions, capsicums, julienne ginger.

Claypot Vege Fish Curry

I love the curry. The spices did not overpower the taste of curry. Best to be eaten with rice. Few slabs of vege fish which look just like the ikan tenggiri.

Claypot Prawn Masala

All dishes are freshly cook. Its gravy is slightly creamier compared to the curry. Best eaten with rice.

Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak is one of the local favorite’s dish. Fluffy coconut rice served with condiments like egg, cucumber, peanuts and sambal (the most important sides).

Basic Set Vege Meal

……serves with rice, 3 type of vege dishes, vege curry,morru, rassam, papadam. The varieties of side dishes were good. Furthermore this look so neat and presentable.

If you need your protein, then you may add on choices of meat (chicken, mutton) or seafood.

Paper Dhosa

Dhosa or Thosai,Β is a type of pancake made from a fermented batter. Dhose is a typical part of the South Indian diet and popular all over the Indian subcontinent. Paper Dhosa is thinner sheet & crispier

compared to the ordinary dhosa. This is served with sambar (dhal curry), chutney (a semisolid paste made up of coconut, dal (lentils), green chilli and mint or coriander),

Dhosa Masala and paper dhosa uses the same batter. It is made in the usual way by soaking rice and lentils overnight in water and then grinding it to a batter. However dhosa masala is stuffed with potatoes.


Dhosa Rava, is different from the above dhosa in terms on the flour. Dhosa Rava is made from Sooji rava flour.

Vada, which look alike doughnut is a savory snack from India. It is served with sambar (dhal) for dipping.

Complete your meal with this Kesari for a sweet ending.

Narayana Tea Stall also featured at Tripadvisor.

In case you are worry about your wallet, here I attached the menu showing that you can dine in a classy restaurant with a pocket friendly price.

Narayana Tea Stall couldn’t be better without a good teamwork!

Would love to come back to try out their Nasi Briyani which was sold out that day. The Nasi Briyani is available daily.

Lunch @Namoo Grey Korean Cafe, Seremban

Its has been raining non stop for 2 days 2 nights. On such cold weather, I would love to have a bowl of spicy and hot soup or food to keep me warm and cozy.

When my Uni mate, Ssu Ee was in town for work, I brought her to this newest franchised cafe in Seremban. Namoo Grey is a Korean cafe located at Seremban Gateway, not far from the Seremban toll.

A modern concept kind of Korean cafe. NAMOO, which means ‘tree’ in Korean, was founded on a deep-rooted that good food should be fresh, natural and timeless.Β 

The Korean fever will never end. At Namoo Grey, they have an extensive menu, from rice to noodles, burgers, pastas, korean pancakes, cakes and Bingsoo. Besides that, Namoo Grey is also a halal cafe. Therefore to my muslim readers, here’s the place for you to savor some halal Korean food.

Simple yet cozy environment with some Korean songs played in background.

My friend had Kimchi Jigae (Beef) – RM18.90

The Kimchi Jigae comes with a bowl of rice and some condiments or we called it banchan in Korean.

Rice burgers, probably one of their specialty. But I wasn’t in the mood of eating that. So I end up ordering Tuna Kimchi Ramyeon – RM18.90. It also comes with 3 side dishes of sausages, coleslaw & kimchi.

The noodles were cooked al-dente. Kimchi soup has the ohhmmpp of spiciness but wasn’t quite satisfied with the amount of tuna meat in it. Would prefer to add a lil more to enhance the soup flavor.

A meal wouldn’t be complete without a dessert.

We chose The King’s Bing Soo – RM18.90 (image of me pouring the condensed milk into the bowl of shaved ice dessert) Bingsoo is a Korean shaved ice dessert with sweet toppings such as chopped fruit, condensed milk, fruit syrup, and Azuki beans. The snack is highly popular in Korea.

Β It was nice. The ice were quite smooth. The shaved ice topped with kiwi, strawberries, azuki beans, crunchy peanuts, tteok (Korean rice cakes made with glutinous rice flour) and a scoop of ice cream, which is ideal for sharing and best to be eaten during a hot day.

I would love to pay another visit to try out other food from their menu. πŸ™‚

Meals @Ninja Kitchen Seremban

When I mentioned Ninja Joe, everyone would probably remember their signature pork burgers. It was then the first fast food outlet which serves delicious pork burgers.

Tell me, who doesn’t like pork burgers.

I remember how tedious it was when my mom has to prepare pork patties from scratch to make a delicious pork burger.

A short conversation with Pat, the person who manages the outlet.

Ninja Joe was created by Serembanian.

Why did you renamed Ninja Joe to Ninja Kitchen whereby the KL outlets are still remained as Ninja Joe?

After operating for a period of time, I noticed that the elderly people here are not too fond of burgers. I decided to make some changes to the menu which caters for patrons of all ages, young to old. Hence, I came up with the idea to add some Asian and local food to my menu. Therefore, that’s how I renamed the Seremban outlet to Ninja Kitchen.

Ninja Kitchen located at Matrix Court, Jalan Lobak. (same row as Tarot Cafe)

cosy environment here.


Pat was explaining the new addition. In Malaysia, we can’t live without Nasi Lemak. Do you agree? Hainanese Chops & Nasi Lemak are the local favorites.

Udonburi (udon), of Japanese style.

Donburi (rice) of Japanese style.

Together with my makan kakis, we started off with a glass of Coconut Shake (RM8.90), is one of their best seller drink. I was told that they uses all the natural ingredients from Coconut (without adding water) to blend a glass of refreshing coconut shake.

Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM12.90)

Its difficult to get a nice hainanese chicken chop these days. Ninja Kitchen did it well. Big slab of battered chicken which was well marinated. Goes well with the sauce they prepared.

If you are a fan of pork, perhaps you can go for Grilled Pork Chop (RM12.90). Having the same sauce as hainanese chicken chop but its replaced with pork. Pieces of pork were grilled to perfection. Meat remain tender and juicy. I was told that the meat was of pig’s shoulder. That gives a nice texture when you bite it.

Nasi Lemak Chili Chicken (RM9.90)

Looking at the vibrant colors, it sure gain some attractions. Rice was aromatic, fluffy and ‘lemak’. When I said lemak, it means it has rich santan taste. Rice and sambal plays an important role in a plate of nasi lemak. It comes with a piece of chili chicken, bull’s eye egg, sambal, peanuts & anchovies, cucumber, acar (seasonal). I also like their sambal, which cooks with anchovies and onions. Its not too spicy nor watery. Just nice for my liking.

Again, if you are a fan of pork, you can opt for Nasi Lemak Pork Chop (RM10.90). Voila…this is something I rarely find outside. Slab of boneless pork as sides in a plate of nasi lemak! Although its fried, but the meat still remain tender.

Cajun is one of their new burger. Delicious pork patty, caramelized onions, green bell pepper, tomato, lettuce and dressing, sandwiched between crispy burger buns.

Pokemon is another new burger. This was created due to the pokemon fever. Pork patty is wrapped in a fried omelet.

Battle between Cajun and Pokemon. I’ll go for Cajun. Hehe…I like the lil spicy after taste.

Wanna have some light snacks? Perhaps a Komba Bao (RM9.90). Comes with 3 tasty braised pork belly with shredded lettuce, sandwiched in a fried mantau bun.

Fried Chicken – 2pcs (RM8.90) has crispy flavorful skin (like the ayam goreng berempah), while the meat was juicy and tender.

Fried Chicken vs. Komba Bao? Arghhh…tough choice. I’m liking both of them!

Generally at Ninja Kitchen, the food prices are affordable. Nevertheless, apart from burgers Ninja Kitchen received very good response on their Hainanese Chicken Chop & Nasi Lemak.

Ninja Kitchen’s tagline; “In this place, we share everything from food to love.”
