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.

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? 🙂 🙂

(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. 🙂

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 🙂

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.

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. 

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.

 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. 🙂

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.

Lunch @Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul, Paradigm Mall

Penang is famous for Teochew Cendol.

Unfortunately I’ve not tried before, and my last trip to Penang was years ago. How sad and embarrassing. T_T

However I consider this as good news because the famous Teochew Cendol has now opened its outlet at Paradigm Mall, Petaling Jaya. It would be great for KL folks!

Its just a small section located at lower ground floor in front of Tesco supermarket. This place was crowded during lunch hour even on weekdays!

Originally located at Lebuh Keng Kwee and only later known as Penang Road Famous TeoChew Chendul.

A short and simple menu is displayed at the ordering counter. Order and pay here, get a number and the worker will bring your food to your table.

Lets begin with their specialty. Looks like everybody are here for this. That goes without saying…because I saw everyone eating it. I would love to try the original one without any additional stuffs. You can have the one with White Coffee, Durian, Cempedak or Ice Cream. For a bowl of Original Teochew Chendul, it is priced at RM4.90. I would give 10/10 (based on my own taste) for this bowl of chendul. Because it meets my satisfaction from the green worm-like jelly (thin strands and not too hard), red beans & kidney beans were properly cooked and lastly sufficient and fragrantful gula melaka!

Then we ordered a plate of Rojak (RM6.90) to share. The ingredients for this rojak was fruits (mango, pineapple), cucumber, taufu pok, cuttlefish tossed with rich fermented shrimp paste and sprinkled with crushed peanuts and sesame seeds. The rojak was nice I felt.

Only 2 types of noodles are served here. So I tried the Assam Laksa (RM7.90), no kick at all. Kinda unsatisfying lor…. 😦

Then, my brother had the Penang Curry Mee (RM7.90). I felt the curry mee is at least better than my assam laksa. But I would prefer it spicier. Extra sambal please…. 😉

So, are you craving for a bowl of chendul at this hour? hehe…..

My recent Sarikei Food Trail

Undeniable that Sarikei, Sarawak is considered as my another home. In this peace and rather slow and steady town… it would be a stress free place to relax your mind.

Although most of the time my staying period were short, but I’ll try my best to fill my time with food. LOL! Especially Sarawak Foochow food which are difficult to get in KL. I do enjoy the food here. Guess most of my friends are gonna hate me for showing them something they couldn’t eat. Haha! Its like you can see but cannot eat. So torturing :-p

Below are just part of food I had. Because I decided to only share the ones that I like most.

Fried Mee Suah on the very first night.

Fried Mini Kompia with Minced Meat Filling. Aren’t they look like Pacman? 😀

Kuey Teow Tomato for supper, perhaps? 🙂

To satisfy my cravings…. Kampua for breakfast on the following day!

Followed by thinly sliced pork liver soup added some red rice wine.

Thanks to Arthur for informing me about this nice Mochi with Peanut Butter filling and Nestum coating from Kim Hing Bakery and Confectionery.

In every coffee shops before your food is served, this is how they place your cutlery. In a cup filled with hot warm. Guess its more cleaner than wiping with tissues right? Unfortunately its not practiced at coffee shops in KL.

Fish Maw Soup

& Sea Cucumber Soup are my favorite soup.

Stir Fry Midin is a must have vege without fail. My favorite vege!

Stir Fry Cangkuk Manis is also another must have vege!

Zhou Cai Hung Ngan with Pork Liver rocks!

Foochow Fried yellow noodles in soup

I also dropped by Bintagor town, which is just short distance from Sarikei for their so-called popular rojak. I find that the rojak taste has deteriorate. Also kinda pricey… If I’m not mistaken this plate of rojak was around RM8-RM10 for this kind of serving size.

Had a bowl of ABC on a hot sunny afternoon. But people here called it ‘Jalok’.

A stroll to the morning market is pretty interesting and knowledgeable when you actually able to see something new.

First time seeing these fruit. Claimed as ‘Local Lychee’. Not cheap though.

This is how kompia, the popular biscuit is made. Kompia is made with lard, onions, salt and flour. A ball of flour is stuffed with a filling of other desired ingredients and flattened with a rolling pin. It is then slapped onto the sides of a traditional home-made Chinese oven.

Some Foochow pastry sold in town.

Arthur also highly recommended this to me. The most expensive noodle I had in Sarikei. LOL! But with no regrets. Tom Yam Big Prawn Noodle for RM26.

Very rich and flavorful tom yam soup with fresh and sweet prawn flesh.

Not forgetting also to dine at Sarawak’s popular fast food franchise, Sugar Bun.

Mine was like a complete meal. Comes with spicy fried chicken, fish fillet, savory rice and pickled vege!

You can also satisfy your nasi lemak craving here at Sugar Bun.  Apart from fried chicken or sandwiches, they also serve asian dishes. Claypot dishes served with rice.

A day before going back to KL, I also dropped by Aik Seng Cafe for the popular Roti Kahwin. Charcoal toasted bun spread with butter, kaya and peanut butter.

We had Stir Fry Rice Cakes for dinner in a restaurant, the night before we return to KL.

Last but not least, save the best for the last. MIL’s Foochow Red Rice Wine Mee Suah before we return to KL. MIL also bought Sarikei’s chicken for us to bring home!

Yea…a trip with lotsa food and higher chances of gaining weight!

Dinner @ The Han Room, The Gardens Mall

Upon celebrating my 31st birthday (alamak….tak sangka I’m already 31 years old!), Alex asked what would I like to eat. Ya… he often let me decide.. therefore I hardly have surprises. LOL!!

This year, I’m telling Alex… I don’t feel like having Western or Japanese food. Lets go for Chinese cuisine 😀  I’ve heard many good reviews about this Chinese Restaurant that we intend to go to.

We put up a night at Cititel Hotel and then came here for dinner.

The Han Room is located very near to the entrance of The Gardens Hotel. Hmm… I should say, just next door.

We were served with this small plate of titbits (RM5). Its pretty addictive and nice. Not those dull looking titbits that I usually had. The above titbits has mild spiciness, comprised of crunchy peanuts, long beans, fried beancurd.

I’m not a tea expert, but I like to choose Chinese tea over other drinks when I dine in a Chinese restaurant.

Alex was still enjoying the titbits while we were waiting for our food to arrive. I like the ambiance here.

An appetizing Paku in Spicy Sauce (RM8)  ,a cold dish as our starter dish. It wasn’t really spicy actually. Crunchy fern mixed with shallots and dried shrimps. The dressing is abit spicy and sourish, something like kerabu.

Our meat platter. 2 combinations – Roasted Pork + BBQ Pork (RM30) with dipping sauce. I dislike the yellow dipping sauce. The smell was so strong. I think its made of ‘bamboo shoots’. While the red one is chili sauce.

The beancurd (center) came together with meat. The beancurd was really smooth. Love both ‘siew yuk’ and ‘char siew’. Juicy and succulent!! Not forgetting there were not much of fats attached. Love them! I’m sure you have your favorite place for siew yuk or char siew. 😉

It was a gloomy evening. Why not order a soup dish. We chose Braised Lobster Soup in Pumpkin – RM28.

The soup portion was enough for both of us. Rich flavors and ingredients. Each scoop has spoonful of lobster meat. The soup taste kinda reminds me of shark fins soup 🙂 Don’t worry….there ain’t any shark fins in the soup.

Pumpkin vs. My Face. My Face wins…. LOL!!

Then came this bowl of ‘geng’ noodle.

Fresh Water Prawn with ‘Hor Fun’ in Superior Prawn Soup – RM25

The soup flavor was so rich. Robust flavors of prawn roe. And the hor fun was smooth too. Nice to have this especially on rainy day.

Alex doing the un-shell job 😉

Only half piece of fresh water prawn was served with the hor fun. No doubt the prawn size was quite big lar.

Before ending the dinner… I wanna have some desserts! I ordered Thousand Layered Cake (Ma Lai Kou) – RM6. It was served warm and the texture was light and spongy. However it doesn’t look as though it has many layers pun. T_T

Last one would be tong sui for a sweet ending. Hehehe…. Mango Sago with Pomelo – RM8. Hmm… the mango sago tong sui was just average. I deducted points because the pomelo has bitter taste 😦

Alex also got me a small moist chocolate cake by Delectable. Its called 7 sins of chocolate. Wa…so sinful! (Chocolate cake crumbles with chocolate ganache dollops, topped with a generous layer of chocolate mousse, chocolate nibs, chocolate buttons and cocoa dustings) Okay…there goes my 31st birthday celebration. Muak Muak….  😉

Verdict : At Han Room, the food prices are of course higher than those normal Chinese Restaurant. But speaking about the environment, service and the quality of food I had, I’m pretty satisfied. After all its a once in a while thing ma. They do offer dim sum and set menus. You can drop by their website to take a look.

Kampua Noodle @Restoran Strawberry Puchong, Bdr. Puteri Puchong

There are many nice Sarawak food that I couldn’t get it handy in Klang Valley. Needless to say at Seremban. Langsung tak ada! Huhuhu…Some common ones that you may have a higher chance to sight are kolok mee, kampua noodle and Sarawak Laksa. Unfortunately to get an authentic or somewhat taste similar is sometimes not easy. I’ve tried a nice Sarawak Laksa at Ming Tien Cafe Sunway. (Introduced by my Sarawakian Hb)

Talking about Suituapui’s Blog; visiting this cikgu’s blog often made me miss those Sarawak’s food that I hardly get it here. Especially those dishes/noodles that I like. Hurmmmm….. @_@ Within a week, he can post several bowls of kampua noodle from varies places in Sibu. (I believed he is a Kampua Hunter. hehe…) Made me have constant cravings for kampua noodles. huhuhu…… drools in front of my monitor. T_T *wipe wipe*

There’s this place, a hawker centre at Bandar Puteri Puchong named “Restoran Strawberry Puchong”… our Sarawakian friend recommended us to try the kampua noodle. Hb brought me here several times…too bad its only available during the day 😦

This place would be convenient to people living around Puchong area. That includes me…although I’m not staying in Puchong…but its near for me to travel here 😉

Apparently, the stall owner is from Sibu. Read somewhere mentioned by a blogger, the kampua noodle source was previously supplied all the way from Sibu. However now they’ve started making their own noodle after managed to get a noodle machine.

Read how kampua noodle is made —> Sarikei kam pua factory

Food served at this stall; kampua noodle (white or dark soya sauce version), mee pok, kampua soup, pien neek (meat dumplings), fried kampua noodle.

A normal serving Kampua Noodle – RM4

I’m not a fan of white version, I preferred it tossed with dark soya sauce. I’m also not a fan of Kampua Noodle in soup. hehe….

A simple and comfort plate of tossed noodle topped with boiled pork slices, 2 pieces of pien neek (meat dumplings), fried shallots and spring onions served with an ordinary chili sauce instead of cili padi. That’s how the Sarawakian eat them.

The taste and noodle texture is same like what I had in Sarawak. Too bad they do not served pig’s liver soup here. :-p

We also ordered a bowl of (Pien Neek) Soup Meat Dumpling – RM3.50.

Can’t remember the number of pieces were there. But I recalled it was quite many. Pien Neek is somehow different from our wantan.

Alternatively, you can also order the dark version of Pien Neek. Its tossed with dark soya sauce. Quite aromatic.

Next month; when I go back to Sarikei, I can have more time for Kampua and more Sarawak food!

This post is specially for friends in Penisular Malaysia craving for their Sarawak Kampua Noodle! 😉

Lets try some Fuzhou Cuisine @Koufu Trendy Chinese Cuisine, Subang Jaya

In Malaysia; Fuzhou dialect is widely spoken, especially in Sibu, Miri, Sarikei, Bintulu, Yong Peng, Sitiawan and Ayer Tawar. How do I expose to Fuzhou dialect?  My husband is a Sarikeian cum Fuzhounese. Can I speak in their dialect? Well…I tried learning…by hearing their conversation. I can speak a little..perhaps those simple ones lar… I can understand a little…but don’t speak too fast okay :-p Alex’s friends commented that Fuzhou language is like an alien speaking language. LOL!!

Other than speaking, of course their food is different too. I do like their food actually. No complains. However its quite difficult for us to find Fuzhou cuisine here in KL when there aren’t much Fuzhounese. Unless I cook at home. But sometimes, we can’t get the exact ingredients here. For instance, ‘red rice wine’. Fuzhou Red Rice Wine Mee Suah is my favorite and comfort dish!

I was quite excited to know about this new place, near to where we are staying…..serving authentic Fuzhou cuisine. Not from Sarawak, but Setiawan.

Photo by Koufu Trendy Chinese Cuisine

Newly opened on July 14 2013. Its located opposite to One City Mall. One City Mall is yet to open…only some shops opposite the mall are occupied now. Never expect a quite area here draws a number of customers too.

Part of the menu.

Types of noodles served here.

We started our meal with Kompiah as appetizer. Thin and crispy dough topped with sesame and filled with minced pork. It was served hot. Therefore it was quite good. You can eat it on its own or by dipping in the Kampung Koh Chili Sauce. Yea…Kampung Koh Chili Sauce is also a production of Setiawan.

You can browse here to see how kompiah is prepared → Kompiang and Mou Mou from Sitiawan, Perak

Here comes the signature dish and also my comfort dish.

Koufu Red Wine Noodle – RM10.90

Using mee suah as the noodle. The mee suah is very thin and smooth. Tasty red rice wine soup with pieces of chicken and 1/2 no. of hard boiled egg. The Fuzhounese would usually serve this during celebrations like birthday and Chinese New Year. Anyway….MIL’s mee suah is still the best. hehe….

Currently they are having a Grand Opening Promo. Buy 1 Free 1 Koufu Red Wine Noodle till 31st of July 2013….which is a good deal!

Fried Meat Dried Noodle – RM7.90.

For this konlou noodle (mee kicap), the noodle tasted fresh while the texture is chewy too. Topped with slices of fried pork, fried shallots and spring onions. I like the fried meat. It was tasty and juicy. However I felt that the noodle portion is abit small. hehe….

We ended our meal with this bowl of icy cold,

Koufu Tang Shui – RM4.90 (Small). Though we ordered the small one but the portion can shared among 2 person also. Unless you are very thirsty, then cannot lar…LOL! Contains 10 ingredients in this bowl of dessert. It was refreshing and not overly sweet. The taste sort of reminds me of ‘Lin Chee Kang’.

1000042_478914292190020_1067468957_nSo, if you miss Fuzhou cuisine too… do drop by Koufu Trendy Chinese Cuisine to give it a try. Overall I’m quite satisfied with the taste of the food I had there.

Remark: This restaurant has closed down. Thank you.

Breakfast @Restoran Melido 美丽都茶餐室, Seremban

I must admit that these days I hardly drive down town to explore food in Seremban. When working in Seremban, I usually bring my own lunch from home. Therefore I also don’t need to go out for lunch. On weekends…I often eat somewhere nearby or eat at home when mummy cooks. Why ar? Sometimes I also lazy to go out lar….Seremban is quite heavy traffic on weekends. But of course still can’t compare to KL. LOL! Its very different when you drive to Seremban town during the day and night. The town is like kinda deserted after 9pm.

All thanks to Ivy, of My Story for refreshing my memory about this place. I was reading her blog last week and noticed she wrote about what she had here at Restoran Melido 美丽都茶餐室, Seremban. I recalled this place! But forgotten what I had here before. LOL! *paiseh*

I got tempted to try the yong tau foo that she mentioned RM0.50/piece. Therefore I decided to come here for breakfast, last Saturday.

photo by mygourmetlist.blogspot.com

An old shop located near Pasar Besar Seremban. And if you are Serembanians…I’m sure you know where is the ‘old yellow bus stop’. This is where its located.

Very classic! Proud to see the younger generations (their children) helping their parent’s business.

Yong Tau Foo for RM0.50/piece. Really worth eating! Working non-stop on stuffing and frying them. Too bad the stuffed bittergourd was not available that day.

The fish cake was firm but not hard and nice. No strong fishy taste too. I also like the meatballs (mixture of pork+fish paste). Bouncy and tasty!

Mom had Mee Kicap with 3 pcs. of Yong Tau Foo for RM3.50.

Although the yong tau foo are priced RM0.50/piece…but the fish paste stuffing wasn’t stingy. Look at the stuffed beancurd.

I tried the Hakka Mee – RM3.80 from one of the stall there. It was alright. But agreed with what Ivy said, Tow Kee Hakka Mee is still my favorite pick.

I also ‘dapao’ a pack of Char Siew Rice (BBQ Pork Rice) – RM4.50 for my brother…

and also a pack of Siew Yuk Rice (Roast Pork Rice) – RM4.50 for my late lunch. Hehe….. The chili sauce wasn’t that good. But the rice was fragrantful and the meat were tasty and juicy!

Verdict : Food were served pretty quick. Although it may not be an air conditioned room…but who cares..as long as the food is good and affordable. Bring additional pack of tissue lo… :-p

Brunch @ TiPsy Brew O’Coffee, Setiawalk Puchong

My previous visit to TiPsy Brew O’Coffee, Setiawalk Puchong was during tea time, enjoyed a cuppa coffee at this cozy place while waiting for the movie to begin.

Then I told myself, I want to come back here to try their cakes and food!

So, I decided to revisit this place over the weekend.

2013-04-21 11.59.35

Recently…Alex is soooo busy with his Candy Crush game! By passing my level although he started to play later than me. But I’ve neglected the game for quite sometime…lazy la… LOL!

2013-04-21 12.04.04

Alex with his order; Cappuccino – RM8.90. I was like…cappuccino again? Don’t you want to try something else? @_@

2013-04-21 12.03.42

Can I call myself a coffee lover without having much knowledge about coffee? I saw this familiar name on the menu called Macchiato – RM7.90. I decided to give it a try. ~To broaden my ‘knowledge’! HAHAHA!

‘Macchiato’ simply means ‘marked’ or ‘stained’, and in the case of caffè macchiato, this means literally ‘espresso stained/marked with milk’. Traditionally it is made with one shot of espresso, and the small amount of added milk was the ‘stain’. (source from wikipedia)

2013-04-21 12.07.55

Look…my cuppa macchiato is so small huh. My face is so much bigger that the cup. Oh my gosh! Yaya…I know..that is the way macchiato been served.

Yes, indeed macchiato has richer coffee taste!

2013-04-21 12.13.05

Turkey Sandwich – RM9.90

Turkey Roll, Tomato, Lettuce, Alfalfa, Mustard sandwiched in choice of bread; white or wholemeal.

2013-04-21 12.09.19

In their menu, there were only 2 types of noodle – Thai Laksa & Mee Rebus. I wish they could have more choices. Here, I chose Thai Laksa – RM10.90. The noodle texture is nice. Hmm…something like thick type of rice vermicelli. The broth wasn’t really spicy. It tasted quite similar to Nyonya Laksa . But I would preferred a creamier broth. hehe….

2013-04-21 12.21.55

The freshly baked Cranberry Scone is priced at RM3.80 each. Its crumbly, not hard and has nice fragrant of butter. Served with cream and blueberry jam.

2013-04-21 12.35.42

While I was looking at the selections of cakes..I asked one of the staff. Which would you recommend. She recommended a few..I can’t really remember them. But Toffee Banana was one of the recommended ones. Both toffee and banana are my favorite. Toffee Banana Cake (RM8.90) was very fresh, light and spongy! Toffee and slices of bananas are sandwiched between layers of spongy cake. Beneath is a thin layer of biscuit crumb. BTW…It was a really nice gesture. To draw a snoopy on the plate using chocolate sauce. This person must be quite artistic.
