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.”

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

DSC01262Creamy Spaghetti Carbonara with mushroom & bacon.

DSC01263Yet to try out all the new dishes. Do pay a visit if you are nearby. They’ve added quite a number of new dishes into their menu.

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!

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! 😀

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’.

Brunch @Noodle House, Sibu

Last Thursday, Alex & I were back to Sarikei. Before arriving Sarikei, we’ll stop at Sibu. I decided to plan a meet up with my blogger friend, Arthur (aka Suituapui or nama gelaran Sibu Food Mayor). I sent him a message a week earlier to make an appointment with him. hehehe….

 

Upon arriving Sibu airport, Alex’s friend Tony came to pick us to the assigned destination. During my earlier conversation with Arthur, he asked what would I like to eat. I told him… we probably could only manage to makan at one spot. I did not wanted any Kampua Noodles…because I knew I’m gonna be having that on my entire stay in Sarikei. So, I told Arthur… I want that Mille Crepe. I also want that fried kompia! Ok set! Arthur said; then we go Noodle House.

 

From airport, we took around 1/2 hour to reach Noodle House. Arthur texted me wondering if we could locate the place or sesat already. The building is kinda hidden behind the main road. With the help of GPS and also I remembered the color of the building, we found our meeting place. LOL!

It was still early, so the place was quite vacant. Was browsing through the menu (the food selections here are not bad), asking recommendations from Arthur. He said NO NO NO..on certain dish, we avoid ordering that. When he said… YES with approval means that tasted good based on his observation 😉

Can you imagine we ordered desserts first before looking at the main meals? LOL!!

Foodie at work! ^_^

A cuppa hot White Coffee (RM3.50) for myself. Nothing great about the coffee. More like instant coffee.

I wanted to try their mille crepe! So we chose one. According to Arthur, the Rum & Raisin (RM7.80) is nice. Not too sweet. Well, true enough. It wasn’t too sweet and each layer were nicely done. Not too dry nor too much cream either. However the rum taste was quite mild. Furthermore the price is alot cheaper than what we are getting here in KL.

We only ordered 2 types of desserts. I did not want them to occupy my tummy space. I need to leave some for the other dishes here. hehe…. This was my second time trying Creme Brulee. The first one was at Fullhouse Lifestyle Store & Cafe. Was a good one. Here at Noodle House, the Creme Brulee (RM7.0) was nice too. Rich and wobbly custard topped with caramelized sugar.

There were several choices of sizzling dish (kampua) on the menu. Alex & Tony had Sizzling Pepper Beef Kampua (RM9.50). It was served hot. Alex said; “Waahh…this is ‘high class’ kampua. I’ve not eaten kampua served this way!” LOL! This was nice lo… the noodle and the black pepper beef + gravy combines well. I curi-ed makan a slice of beef meat. The meat was tender and tasty!

 

I am a rice person now! I wallop the whole bowl of rice okay. This Stewed Pork Rice (RM7.20) was nice. The meat portion (stewed pork slices & minced pork) not stingy.

Here, there are 3 different types of filling for their fried kompia. Minced Meat Kompia, Pork Belly Kompia & Cheese Spicy Chicken Kompia. I went for the ordinary filling. So, above is Minced Meat Kompia (RM3.50).

and this is the Pork Belly Kompia (RM4.50). I felt both were good. Although the kompia was fried, its not dry or too oily.

Happy diners? Arthur did not order any main dish for himself. He said he already had kampua that morning before meeting us :-p

 

I couldn’t remember what was so funny in this photo. Hmm… I think Arthur was mentioning something about ‘tummy’ thing 😀

 

Okay…. a proper photo. 😉

 

1240275_10151733118702740_1598868379_nArthur remembered I commented on his blog that I’ve not tried Tee Piang before. (He has good memory. Dun play play) He bought me some Tee Piang (with and without meat filling) and some Chicken Pie. Hey… these are precious. Couldn’t find it here wan. Tee Piang is made of soya bean pulp. It smells like ‘wadeh’ may be because of the fragrant from shallot. I like the one with meat filling (like the char siew pao filling). I especially like the Chicken Pie. The pastry was nice…and the filling was so full.

 

It was nice meeting Arthur in person rather than exchanging comments on our blogs all the time. He has that ‘serious’ looking face… but actually a nice person after meeting him. hehehe….

Lunch @ Delicious, Mid Valley Megamall

Often heard about this place. Used to passed by this place. But have not tried their food. When I meet up with both my UNI buddies, Sheima and Susan at Midvalley…Sheima then suggested this place, Delicious..a chain store.

I thought it would be a…good idea!

At Delicious, you may choose to dine indoor or outdoor. Outdoor look more spacious to us, so we decided outdoor. This place seems cozy.

The bright exterior creates beautiful and contrast outcome. I like the way they furnished their restaurant.

Makcit Sheima and her handsome son, Afy reading the ‘no photos attached’ menu.  Sheima and I often call each other ‘Makcit’. Because we both are so ‘auntie’. LOL

Their menu is so simple! Just names and prices.

Aglio Olio Spaghettini + Add Seafood = RM24.80

Something light and simple. Prawns were fresh and crunchy. However squids were …hhmmm…’rubbery’! Not recommended.

Napolicious a Creamy Tomato based Spaghettini with Beef Bacon Chicken StripsRM20.90 

Rich in tomato gravy. Serving was quite big too.

Classic Beef Lasagne – RM20.90

Rich flavors, very cheesy and meaty!

Fish & Chips (from Kids Menu) served with Carrot and Cucumber Sticks RM12.90

Crispy Fried Mushroom – RM13.90

I was tempted by the long list desserts printed on the menu. Hardly decide one. If only I could order more. Unfortunately, a wrong choice was made! *sigh.

Berrilicious Chocolate Pavlova – RM13.90  Not recommended.

Appearance can deceive. Looks pretty..but tasted below average.  All I could taste was just the rocky, thick and airy meringue topped with thick cream.  Moreover strawberries are so sour =_=

Both Sheima and Susan are my good friends during UNI days. We took the same course, went to class together, joke together. Moreover Sheima was also my roommate. Both of them are now blessed with 2 kids. Had a great time with them. It was nice to hear from them. Knowing that they are now doing well. Though we hardly meet or talk these days…but we still put an effort to meet. Well its the heart that counts.

Afy is so leng cai…Ya..obviously he knew the camera was onto him =p

Oyaki, The Loaf @ Tokyo Street, Pavilion KL

Oyaki is a Japanese-Style bun. (looks like a pan-fried bun)

It was popular during Taisho period (1912-1925). The Oyaki dough was traditionally made from using local flour and water while the filling of the Oyaki was vegetables seasoned with Miso / Soy Sauce. Oyaki can be found in most of the bazaar in Japan and outside Japan during the Japan’s Festival celebration.

The Loaf has modified the traditional Oyaki to The Modern Taisho Oyaki by using Butter Roll Dough stuffed with more than 10 varieties of sweets and savories ingredients each to bake in oven instead of using the frying pan.

Other than Oyaki, The Loaf also offer the Japanese moist and creamy Roll Cakes such as Caramel Maple Syrup, Mixed Fruits, Green Tea, Red Bean and etc.

Located at 6th Floor of Pavilion. (at Tokyo Street)

Just a small shop. Suitable for take-away.

Today, there were more choices. Unlike during my first visit on the first weekend after it was newly launched.

There are 12 flavors shown on the menu. But not all available that day. Currently they are having this promotion of Buy 6 pcs for the price of 5!! Promotion ends on 31st August 2011. Ohh ya..the price per piece is at RM2.90.

Therefore I dapao back home to enjoy it with my family. It was nicely packed!

Above are types of Oyaki I chose and a cut section of each. The bun are quite soft. But I reheat them before consuming. I prefer it to be warm…as it will be nicer that way.

Sausage Cheese – Melted cheese on top with sausage filling. (good)

Chicken Mushroom – This is a deep fried type I suppose. Seeing the outer part coated with breadcrumbs (if I’m not mistaken). Filled with bite size mushrooms and cream. (good)

Bolognaise – Taste like the bolognaise spaghetti (good)

German Potato – Mashed potato filling with taste of peppercorns (not nice)

Chocolate Banana – Filled with taste of chocolate & banana. (good)

Kaya – Filled with kaya (coconut jam) (normal)

Last but not least. Before leaving, I got myself this lil rabbit from Zakka, Tokyo Street. Her name is FiFi…she’s quite shy…She sleeps with me every night.  Hb is getting jealous. He claimed that my bed is filled with soft toys. Soon, its going to be fully occupied by them. Wanyi, if you are reading here, this is your favorite bitbit!

My Tea Break – Pisang Goreng & Keropok Lekor

Pisang Goreng (Banana Fritter) is a common snack food in Malaysia. The banana is battered and then deep fried. While Keropok Lekor is a delicacy from Terengganu. There are 2 types. 1 is the dark grey and the other one is white color(steam). The difference is that both are using different type of fish to make. If you happens to travel to Terengganu, make sure you must try the white steamed one. Served with flaming hot sambal belacan. Its irresistibly!! (hope to provide you with photo)

Last Saturday, I went to City Park, Seremban 2 just to fetch some Pisang Goreng for my tea break. Unfortunately I was too early. Pisang Goreng were not ready. Therefore I returned the following day, at about 2pm. This round I was fortunate – seeing those golden color Pisang Goreng placed in the tray. Ohh ya..not forgetting Keropok Lekor which is yummy too! All are served warm.

This mobile street stall runs by a Malay couple. I specifically choose only this stall because both its Pisang Goreng & Keropok Lekor are good!


A plate of plump golden brown Pisang Goreng for just RM2. (RM1 for 5 pcs). This must be consume while its warm. A bite of it you are able to hear some “krok krok” sound effect. Crispy batter….sweet, ripe & firm banana.

I like to dip the pisang into this bowl of kicap pedas(spicy soy sauce)- sauce was given for free; upon request. How to make the sauce—> Kicap Pedas

There are 2 types of Keropok Lekor here. The thin crispy and the rather plump size(which you can taste it like fish cake). With a value price of RM1 for 5 pcs.

Dip the crispy keropok lekor in the bowl of chili sauce (sauce given for free). Happily seeing it soaked in the sauce…. YUMMM….
