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.”

Zhing Kitchen @Centrio, Seremban 2

Longing for some authentic Taiwan cuisine? Or miss some Taiwan cuisine after your trip from Taiwan?

At Zhing Kitchen, would be the destination to solve your cravings.

Located at Centrio Seremban 2, a family style restaurant is operated by Taiwanese, a young & capable woman.

3bb9ce_154f28bf88ec4dd6be9ac6d66265b409mv2_d_1754_1239_s_2

This is the interior, simple setup with some nicely painted wall mural.

This is the best or most grabbed spot.

However I don’t quite like the open kitchen concept. Its nice to watch some live cooking, but since its an air conditioned room, the cooking smoke tend to be trapped in the room. Perhaps they should install a better exhaust or ventilation fan.

Passion Fruit Drink – RM4.90
It has nice passion fruit taste.

Smelly Tofu – RM6.90

This dish is something I like most! The smelly tofu (臭豆腐), tasted similar to what I had before in Taiwan last time. I was so happy that I could get it here.

Smelly tofu (fermented tofu) is a popular street snack in Taiwan. It is served deep-fried (drizzled with sauce and topped with sour pickled vegetables).

Mentai Tuna Rice – RM10.90

Tuna & Corn rice with mentai mayo sauce. Served with side dish of half braised egg and some pickled vegetables. Both my son and my niece, they love this rice.

Oden Noodle – RM10.90

Oden is a Japanese winter dish consisting of several ingredients such as boiled eggs, daikon, konjac, and processed fishcakes stewed in a light, soy-flavored dashi broth.

The serving was quite big. Soup flavor was very light. You can choose to order a soup version or a dry version of noodle.

Fried Oyster & Egg – RM9.90

This is another recommended dish. The signature Taiwanese style oyster egg, with special sweet chili bean sauce. Fluffy egg with lotsa vegetables and ‘visible’ numbers of oysters in it.

Zhing Duck Noodle – RM10.90

This was delicious too. I opted for noodle instead of rice. Dry version noodle served with nanjing duck meat, fried egg and some condiments. Duck meat texture was just nice and not fat. However, I would prefer if they have thinner cuts.

14963184_1689014371414032_8067535493131355386_nAt Zhing Kitchen, breakfast is served as early as 8.30am till 11.30am. Ideal for working people to grab and go.

One day, I decided to order their breakfast for ‘take away’. A set of sandwich (can’t remember the name) that comes together with baked beans which cost less than RM10. What’s in the sandwich? I got vege, chicken patty and egg. It was yummy!

Verdict : Overall, the food was good. But please bear the waiting time. hahaha…. Waited for 1/2 hour for the food to be served one by one. There was only 1 table of guests ahead us.

A Porky Meal @Morganfield’s, Palm Mall Seremban

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Pork is awesome
Unless you are a jew

Morganfield’s has arrived Seremban!! *jump up joy*

For pork lovers, you may like this heavenly place. First outlet in Seremban and its located at Palm Mall.

It was newly opened on the beginning of January 2016. (their 9th outlet)

I came here on 2 different occasions, to try out their lunch set and the signature pork ribs.

Morganfield’s® is an Europeanized American casual diner specializing in pork ribs.

The interior of its dining area is brightly lit by lights and tall windows. Dining area covers indoor and al-fresco.

come and check out the lunch set priced from RM16.90 onward with free soup of the day/house salad + refillable soft drink. (only available on weekdays-excluding public holidays from 11am-3pm)

This 1 page menu is solely for lunch set.

Drinks were served first, in this adorable ceramic mug. For the ladies they will serve in pink mug with red lip. While for guys, they will serve the drink in blue mug with mustache. I got attracted by the mug and purchased it for RM14.90. You can check out other gifts which are available for sale here–> http://morganfields.com/giftshop.html

Salad (via lunch set)

Soup of the day (via lunch set)

Pork Ragout & Homemade Meatballs Pasta

Spaghetti with braised porky meat ragout, homemade meatballs in fresh herb tomato sauce.

You could taste the minced meat in every spoonful of spaghetti. This plate of pasta was so satisfying and full.

Pork Schnitzel

Juicy pork loin chop, battered in bread crumbs & fried to perfection. Served with coleslaw & french fries.

The fried pork chop was nice and its not dry too. I couldn’t figure out what mixture of sauce was that. Its creamy and with bits of mushroom. Matches well with the slab of fried pork chop. Not forgetting the portion was big too…as we were given 2 pieces of pork chop.

On a different occasion, I brought my family here for this platter! My mom loves pork ribs. She watches alot of kwai lou food program on TV and always envy people’s pork ribs. LOL! 😀

From the above 3 choices, we chose Ocean Madness – RM199.90

Full Slab of Hickory BBQ Spare Ribs, 3 battered fish fillets, 6 beer battered prawns, grilled spicy devil sausage, grilled herby hog sausage, garden salad, grilled corn, corn bread & french fries.

Types of sauce for your pork ribs are Hickory BBQ/Garlicky BBQ/Smoked Peppercorn/The Naughty Spare Ribs. Choose either one. We chose Hickory BBQ. It smells so good when it was served. The fragrant of BBQ sauce. Pork Ribs were grilled to perfection not dry yet retain its juiciness. You could easily rip off the flesh without force. Yummy!!

This platter is ideal for sharing. Should be enough for 4-6 eaters. The portion is big. You get what you pay. I think Ocean Madness is a good choice if you are not 100% into pork. You’ll still get fish & prawns in it. However I dislike the corn bread. Felt it was quite dry & crumbly.

Hawaiian Chicken – RM39.90

Grilled Chicken topped with honey ham, melted cheese & sweet pineapple. Served with mashed potato & garden salad.

I don’t quite like the grilled chicken. The meat was quite tough.

When you dine here on weekends together with kids, they can eat for free. With the condition each free kid meal is given upon ordering one main course meal. Means if you order 2 main courses, you get 2 free kid meals. (choose from the above)

Pulled Pork Burger (kid meal)

Chicken Tenders (kid meal)

Verdict: This is a nice place to dine with pork and also to gather family & friends. The environment and the food was good. Besides that, the restaurant is quite spacious and stroller friendly too. I felt the lunch set is a good deal.

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. 😀

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 @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! 😀
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.

*recent update*

Starting from January 2016, Be My Friend Cafe has started to serve pork. Sorry to disappoint my Muslim friends ya.

DSC01261Big portion of breakfast comes with pork ham in less than RM20

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! 😀 😀

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!

Ninja Joe has arrived Seremban

Hiak Hiak Hiak…… good news to Serembanian. Ninja Joe has arrived Seremban. Heard so much about their ‘pork burger’… somehow this was my first time trying it. *malunya… 😀

Located at Matrix Court, Jalan Lobak… the ninja arrived on June 13, 2014. Received overwhelming response from the Seremban folks!

You know what… the founder of Ninja Joe is actually a Serembanian. But how come they don’t open it in Seremban first hor? *feeling curious*

*trying to decide what to order from the simple one page menu*

Ninja Joe is an original Japanese quick serve concept best known for delicious pork burgers!

Chefs at work. More grilling and frying of pork patties and bacon. Yummss…

The dining area is rather small with limited seating place. Hmm… I suggest they should improvise their ventilation system. Because the kitchen area is quite open. In result the place was kinda smokey.

Chuck – RM15.90/set

Named after the one and only Chuck Norris, this burger is packed with everything = Juicy quarter pound pork patty, a whole egg, cheese, crunchy veg, topped with crispy onion rings and most importantly…REAL BACON!!

Spicy Ninja – RM8.90/ set (comes with crinkle cut fries & a drink)

Oriental Ninja – RM8.90/set (substitute fries with Shurikens by topping up RM2). Shurikens are deep fried mashed potato + pork patties. I felt the texture was abit tad soft but tasty!

Shuko – RM6.90. Like our Chinese mantao with pork belly. The warm and soft mantao sandwiched with tasty pork belly was delicious.

Look at my baby’s face expression! I think he was drooling too. Just like mummy….. hehehe….

Verdict : I like their soft burger buns and also the tasty and moist pork patties! Yummeh….
