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…..

FA-YING DINNER MENU

Thai Crab Cake with Mango Sauce
Stir-Fried Penne with Prawn Curry
Sticky Rice with Jackfruit
Lemongrass Green Tea Cooler

RM50nett

2013-10-010Thai Crab Cake with Mango Sauce

I like the Thai Crab Cake but don’t quite like the Mango Sauce. Still find it nicer to go with Thai Chili Sauce. hehe….

2013-10-009Stir-Fried Penne with Prawn Curry

Ohh….an east meets west pasta! Quite special I felt. The al dente Penne were well coated with the creamy curry.

2013-10-011Sticky Rice with Jackfruit

The ol-skool Thai Sticky rice usually goes with Mangoes. But here, they were using jackfruit instead of mango. Something different and new too. But I think mango is still nicer lar…. hahaha…although both are my favorite fruits. LOL!

Below are the ala-carte dishes we had.

2013-10-006Grilled Scallop Spinach – RM15

Ohh..this was a very nice appetizer. The plump and juicy scallops were nicely grilled. Dip in the Thai sauce gave a lil sourish and spiciest flavors.

2013-10-007Tom Yam Chicken – RM12

A small serving of Tom Yam soup sufficient for 1-2 person. I was happy that the tom yam soup has made some improvement compared to the first time I tried. Previously, the tom yam flavors were too mild.

2013-10-008Belacan Fried Rice – RM15

Sorry to say, we were quite disappointed with the belacan fried rice. I don’t find any belacan taste in it . 😦

Anyway…we also finished the whole plate of rice…mummy taught us not to waste food ma…. 😀

Lunch @Fa-Ying by Rama V, Paradigm Mall

Recently there are several bloggers visited and also reviewed about this new place, at Fa-Ying by Rama V, Paradigm Mall. So I was here feeling anticipated to check out the place and also the food.

 

Fa-Ying by Rama V is a new concept restaurant from the multi award-winning Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine. Kuala Lumpur’s connoisseurs of fine Thai cuisine are now presenting a new modern style of enjoying Thai food in a casual chic setting.

Located at the Boulevard. The setting up, the deco, the name, are so chic. Pretty attractive I guess.

The modern interior with some beautiful art sculptures on the wall.

While the smoking area(outdoor) gives you the comfy feeling of dining here. Couch and colorful cushions.

View from my seat onlooking to the bar counter. On every Wednesday, they are having Ladies Night! *Free flow of Special House Cocktail to all ladies, all day long.

Ribena Lychee – RM13, gives you the refreshing feel.

On hot weather, Lemon Juice – RM8 will be ideal to quench your thirst.

For people who like to have drink with some light coffee taste,….

I chose Latte – RM10.

An appetizing starter, Pomelo Salad with Prawn – RM16. This salad seems so fresh. Love the crunchiness of fresh prawns and vegetables. Not forgetting the juicy and not sour pomelo. Combination taste of sourish, sweet and spicy.

The tasty Fish Cake – RM12

Spaghetti with Green Curry Pesto – RM22. The flavors combines well. But I feel that the green curry taste was too mild. Its non spicy spaghetti.

When dining in Thai cuisine..I often order Tom Yam. This bowl of Tom Yam Prawn – RM16 however was quite disappointing. Soup was dilute and not rich. Doesn’t give me the ‘kick’.

Roast Duck Sandwich – RM20 was good. Its something new to me. The tiny looking fries were quite good actually. They were very crunchy.

The roast duck meat were all good. Not dry and its tasty. I wish they could put more duck meat. Hehehe…..

Not forgetting a dessert to conclude my meal. Deep Fried Mango with Vanilla Ice Cream – RM16.

Crispy batter crust with cooked glutinous rice wrapping some mango flesh. I cut them into smaller pieces and preferred to dunk it in the vanilla ice cream. The warm and cold plus crispy texture was nice!
