Breakfast @ Yuen Garden Dim Sum, Puchong

Having dim sum as breakfast just like the Hongkie ^_^

There are countless dim sum restaurants in Puchong. So far I’ve only tried 2 from 2 different restaurants serving decent dim sum with an affordable price, at Bandar Puteri Puchong. I seldom go for dim sum breakfast…usually had noodles. I preferred to dine with 3-4 person, so that I could order more types of dim sum.

This time around with my mummy, sister and little niece; I would like to bring them to a different restaurant for dim sum. So I did a google search and looks like Yuen Garden Dim Sum has many positive reviews from the customers.

Occupying the corner lot of a 3-storey building.

However this restaurant is non-air conditioned.

A sign of “Please wait to be seated” is placed at the entrance. I felt its more organized this way. Rather than standing/ chupping next to a table hoping that person would quickly swallow their food and drinks so that I could get a seat.

Siew Mai….

and Har Kau are both abang adik that you should order in a dim sum restaurant. In my perception..both has to be good else I wouldn’t give a pass to that restaurant. hehe…

Luckily both Har Kau & Siew Mai were not bad. Meaty and the prawns were fresh and crunchy.

Minced Pork + Century Egg Porridge was quite smooth and tasty.

Their Lo Mai Kai fulfilled the criteria for having all the ingredients. Pork, Chicken, Chinese Sausage & Mushroom. The taste was good but I would prefer if the glutinous rice were to be softer 😉

Steamed Pork Ribs were alright.

Stuffed Chili was quite nice. Generous stuffing and the taste was good.

The firm Fish balls

Ohh… I like these Fried Chicken Wings! Crispy exterior! The end part of wing is stuffed with fish paste. Special right?

Char Siew Pao

My favorite Wu Kok! Very ‘yam-mie’ and crispy with nice pork filling.

Flaky crust filled with wobbly egg custard, Egg Tarts were alright but not the best I’ve eaten 🙂

I like the sight of my table filled with baskets of dim sum 🙂

Everything is served warm. If there’s any dim sum that you would like to order but its not available on the push cart, you may order from the staffs. They’ll bring it to you. Overall the food, price and environment are acceptable. But I end up feeling quite thirsty after the meal. I suspect may be the porridge. =_=

Dinner @Village BBQ Steamboat, Puchong

Do you like steamboat? I like having steamboat especially when there’s a gathering with family or friends. I like the atmosphere where everyone happily enjoying the one pot thing.

photo from their FB page.
*typo on the word ‘Grill’*

Despite having the old skool way of steamboat, ever thought of 3 in 1? The other day I came across this newly opened steamboat restaurant in Bandar Puteri Puchong. Steamboat business is quite competitive in this area. 3 in 1 Buffet Steamboat look interesting to me. Steamboat + Frying (on pan surrounding the pot of soup) and BBQ on a small mobile bbq pit.

There are only 2 types of soup base offered here. Chicken soup & Tom Yam. Choose only one. I for sure to choose Tom Yam soup lar…. LOL!! But their tom yam soup was nice wor….

Buffet style means you can eat everything they served on the serving table. All you can eat buffet steamboat priced at RM35 (adult) RM25 (children). For children below height of 120cm…there is a minimal charge too. But I can’t recall the exact price. Sorry.

I took some cooked dishes from this section to fill my hungry stomach. I had some fried rice with curry chicken and some delicious lala (clam).

types of dried noodles to use for steamboat.

Varieties of frozen meat balls or processed meat.

Varieties of skewers consists of meat and seafood use for BBQ. Also assorted of marinated sliced meat use for grilling/frying.

More fresh seafood.

The vege corner. Assorted fishballs, mushrooms and beancurds.

More vege and cut fruits.

Types of dipping sauce. Opss…the empty slot were brought into kitchen to replenish.

Types of drinks offered here. They also provide Liong Cha (Chinese Herbal Tea).

When I was picking up some raw ingredients… I thought their washing area is kinda nice. Don’t you agree? :-p

Look, what we scooped for our steamboat.

scallops, mussels, clams….

BBQ-ing in progress.

This small BBQ pit in place next to each customer’s table, easier for us to do the BBQ thing.

Siew Kai Yik….siapa mau?? 😀

Yea…lets feast!

Good dining experience here. The food selections were not bad I felt. The choices of seafood offered, the prawns sizes are quite big I thought. Moreover the ingredients were fresh. Service was acceptable too. Hope they could maintain its quality for long term. Not only when its newly open lar hoh. 😉

Steamboat will not be complete without ice cream. True or not?

Assorted ice cream flavors. But these kind of scooped ice cream is too common edi….

Ta daaahhh….more ice cream! Got in cone lar…. stick lar…. ice cream potong pun ada. Yay!

What’s your favorite choice of Dim Sum? @Restoran Taiji Eatery, Bdr. Puteri Puchong

When comes to ordering dim sum, what’s your favorite choice of Dim Sum?

I invited mummy and Marcus to come over to my house over the long weekend. Mummy likes eating dim sum. So, Alex and I brought her to Puchong for dim sum. At Bandar Puteri Puchong itself, there are several dim sum restaurants. I asked to come here again because my first experience here, the dim sum was not bad. Not forgetting most of the dim sum restaurants here are often packed during weekends. If any that look so vacant…it must be something wrong. Either the food or price or probably the service.

Restoran Taiji Eatery is a non air conditioned restaurant. But still bearable with fans on lar. No push carts here…varieties of dim sum are served in big tray. They’ll carry around the restaurant easily for customers to choose and order. If you do not sight any of your choice…probably you can ask the staff whether those dish are available or not. For example, porridge, loh mai kai, char siew pao.

We started with a plate of warm Char Siew Pao (Steamed BBQ Pork Bun). Each plate consist of 2 average size steamed bun.

The pao dough was not hard or dry. Quite fluffy. The filling was moist and tasty.

Nothing great about the Hong Kong G Cheong Fun but it wasn’t horrible la…

Siew Mai (Steamed Pork Dumpling) was okay. Quite meaty.

However I preferred this dunno what name. Similar to Siew Mai but topped with a piece of prawn. Fillings are pork & prawn. Firm and juicy texture.

Yu Mai (Steamed Fish Balls). The fish balls are quite nice I felt. It has firm texture and no strong fishy taste.

The Chicken Feet was just average.

Loh Mai Kai (Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken). I like their loh mai kai wor. It was properly cooked. Means no semi-cooked rice grains. And I find it tasty too.

Their Stir-Fried Radish Cake on that day was quite disappointing. Color wasn’t really attractive (look pretty white) and the taste also abit bland. Luckily it has sufficient egg and bean sprout to compensate the overall taste.

Their Wu Kok (Yam Dumpling) was very nice and yam-mie. Its also my favorite. Never miss ordering one. Crisp exterior, smooth and fragrantful yam interior with bbq pork filling.

After meal dessert with a serving of Kwai Fa Kou. I always heard this kuih served in those olden days Chinese emperor palace (watched from tv drama). But I’ve not tasted the real one. This one, the texture is between jelly&kuih. Not really crunchy type. A bit of sweetish taste with hint of chrysanthemum and Chinese wolfberries.

Too bad they did not serve any Durian Pancakes on that day. I recalled it was quite nice.

The price list here. So I’m guessing a basket of siew mai cost RM3.50.

Total bill was around RM48, for the above dim sum, a pot of tea (Tieguanyin) and a cup of Herbal tea. Overall we were quite satisfied with the food and price.

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! 😉

Dinner @Korean BBQ San Nae Deul, Setiawalk Puchong

Bulgogi, Dak-Galbi, Samgyetang, Kimchi jigae, Bibimbap, Ramyeon, Gimbap, Pajeon, Ddeokbokki are the common dishes in Korean Cuisine. Which is your favorite one? My all time favorite is kimchi jigae! But this round I’m sacrificing kimchi jigae for something else. Worth the sacrifice??

Varieties of food offered at Setiawalk, Puchong. I decided to try the Korean cuisine here. The only Korean cuisine at the moment. – Korean BBQ San Nae Deul. If I’m not mistaken, they have several outlets in KL.

The interior. Cosy environment. The restaurant do provide private rooms. Maybe required reservation….on safer side lo…

Our sitting place.

Complimentary plain water for diners.

Grilled meat is something you must not miss when you dine in a Korean restaurant. So, we ordered Grilled Spicy Pork in Korean Spicy Sauce – RM35.

Another thing I like about Korean cuisine is the Banchan(side dishes)!! Look at the varieties of banchan here! *LIKE*

Hassle free. Just leave the grilling work to the staff. BTW….do you know why they put a piece of mushroom on that grilling pan ar?

meat was cut into smaller pieces for easy consumption.

Okay…now the meat are ready to makan. Although it stated ‘spicy’…but not spicy pun.

condiments for the grilled meat.

Fresh and green lettuce to eat together with the grilled meat.

This is how you eat them. A piece of lettuce, place rice over the lettuce, a piece of meat and some sauce made of fermented bean paste. The wrap it. It was quite yummy!

Dolsot Bibimbab (Mixed Rice with various vegetable in the stone pot)RM25 wasn’t satisfying. Lack of red pepper paste.

Samgyetang (Boiled chicken with ginseng)RM35

I sacrificed my kimchi jigae for this Samgyetang!! Unfortunately this samgyetang was very disappointed. Hardly taste any ginseng and the soup was quite bland. Moreover its incomparable to the samgyetang I had in Korea. I miss the one I had in Korea….huhuhu….

Overall; only satisfied with the Grilled Spicy Pork in Korean Spicy Sauce and banchan. Dolsot Bibimbab and Samgyetang are below average.

**Only Cash Term**

My Tea Break @CAFFEine; Setiawalk Puchong

My daily caffeine boost has to be at least a cuppa coffee. But usually I’ll just bancuh my cheap 3in1 coffee…hehehe…..

Caffeine is a bitter substance found in coffee, tea, soft drinks, chocolate, kola nuts, and certain medicines. But in this case…obviously we are referring to their drinks.

One day, I saw my friend posted photos of this cafe on his Facebook. Nice drink and cake I saw. I decided to give it a try and dragged Alex to bring me to Setiawalk. I noticed there are more and more cafes offering coffees and cakes here at Klang Valley. Anyway, this would be beneficial to us, the consumers…where we will be spoil with choices. Agreed? 😉

A very simple interior. Located at 1st floor right above Share Tea.

Free Wifi and some old-skool board games are also available here.

The drinks menu are neatly written on a chalkboard.

Freshly baked cakes and muffins. The cakes looked so good. I couldn’t decide which one to go for.

Ohhh…homemade ice cream by FatBaby is also available here! Isn’t that great to have some homemade ice cream. In terms of ingredients, much natural I suppose.

Again…I’m required to choose. I like salted caramel….at the same time I also like peanut butter wor. So, I ended up choosing ‘peanut butter’ flavor. hehe….

The ice cream is quite smooth and has nice taste of peanut butter. But not very strong. Size of cup is around 6cm in diameter.

Ohh ya…the friendly barista handed 2 additional flavors for us to sample. (not the whole cup okay) :-p

Chocolate : Very rich chocolate taste. Ermm…a lil bitter after taste.

Apple Crumble : Nice and fruity!

It was a hot afternoon. I really feel like having a cold drink. Therefore I chose Iced Electro Choc – RM11. (made from Irish cream, hazelnut coffee, milk and cocoa powder). Nice layers of drink I had. Wow…I did not expect an iced drink comes with coffee art too!! Thought I could only see the coffee art on hot drinks. *claps* I would say this drink is nice. Very smooth too. Hmm…kinda reminds me of latte.

Quench my thirst with a glass of Iced Electro Choc. To me, the serving size is quite big.

There you go…my choice of cake, Chocolate Baileys Cake – RM19.50.

A rich chocolate mousse cake topped with crunchy and crispy caramelized hazelnut. However I find it kinda pricey for a slice of cake. But this slice of cake is really good lar….

Come…take a closer look. Layers of chocolate mousse and sponge. The mousse part is rich and smooth. While the sponge part is very moist. Makes it a great combo!

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.

An interesting picture I saw on Facebook today. So, which is your type of coffee? And what your coffee says about you? My favorite pick is Latte. Latte says “you’re reflective, but often indecisive. In the world of unknowns, you like the safe picks”. OMG! Sounds quite accurate leh…

Below Expectation @Yamagoya Ramen, Setiawalk Puchong

When Yamagoya Ramen newly arrived in Klang Valley, I heard so much of their publicity through radio advertising. Since we were at Setiawalk Puchong, so Alex and I decided to give it a try. Understand that ever since Setiawalk implemented a parking fee, there are lots of complains about the jam towards the parking entrance. I hope they could do something on this.

20130217_183428You will be greeted by the friendly staffs as you enter their restaurant.

20130217_183023The 1 full page of ramen. Like not many choices hor….

20130217_183351My order; Yamagoya Ramen – RM19.

20130217_183545Not quite good. I was expecting it to taste as good as Hokkaido Ramen Santouka. Thin ramen while the broth….don’t you think its quite oily? You may find the broth is very rich and tasty on 1st few sip…later on feel ‘jelak’. However the slices Pork Char Siu are quite nice.


Alex chose Spicy Tobanjan Ramen – RM22.

I felt that Alex’s ramen taste the same like mine. The only difference is that..he has additional chili paste.

20130217_183954After adding the chili paste into the ramen. *looks so oily* @_@

I did not bother to add on. Because I felt that Soy Sauce Egg for RM4 is quite pricey.

Wasn’t sure if we made the right order. But the ramen failed to impress me.

*Strictly based on my individual taste*

Lets have coffee @ TiPsy Brew O’Coffee, Setiawalk Puchong

Alex and I planned to go for a movie at Setiawalk Puchong.

Since we were there early before the scheduled movie, so we decided to go for a drink. Moreover I needed my coffee fix! hehe…..

20130217_150113 mini mini miny mo, and we chose TiPsy Brew O’Coffee.

20130217_153351Hand painted by people of TiPsy Brew O’Coffee on how to brew siphon, hand-drip and french press. *impressive*!


They also served cakes. I saw their cakes look quite good. I shall save it for my next visit! 😉

20130217_151658My Cafe Latte – RM8.90

20130217_151619His Cappuccino – RM8.90

20130217_151108Forty Licks claimed as handcrafted ice cream using only the best ingredients, with no additives or preservatives. There were several other flavors…but I chose to try Salted Caramel (RM7.20) because I heard so much from people.

20130217_151302It was a good choice of choosing salted caramel. Not overly sweet. Hint of saltiness and sweetness of caramel!


“Forty Licks, because one lick just isn’t enough.”

Sorry…I lost count on how many licks I made :-p


My macho man! Wahaha…..


Our colorful outfit of the day! 😉

Verdict : A nice place to spend your tea break. The coffee were good too. I like the ambiance and the friendly staffs. Besides beverages and cakes, they also serve food like sandwiches and noodles.

Dinner @Restaurant Tak Fok,Puchong

I must say that Puchong is a food haven. There are eateries till sometimes I couldn’t decide what to eat. ‘Big Fry (Tai Chow) is often a good choice among the Chinese especially on family dinner.

But how about ‘big fry’ + seafood? My friend, Wanyi recommended this place at Restaurant Tak Fok. She said they serve seafood (crab) with reasonable pricing. She also enlightened me about the crowd during dinner hour.

IMG_6181Just a simple and casual dining place. Often crowded on weekends.

IMG_6185We came here for the crabs. 2 pieces of crabs for just RM28. As shown on their menu, they have 13 different types of cooking method. I chose Crabs with Butter and Milk Sauce. Nice flavors and not overly creamy. Although the crab size is a lil small, with the price I’m paying…it does satisfies my crab craving.

IMG_6187Fried bun to pair with the crab’s Butter and Milk Sauce.

IMG_6188Soft bun with crispy skin. But not as good as the one I had before at South Sea Seafood Restaurant.

IMG_6182I will always order at least one vege dish. Ordered a stir fry kailan.

IMG_6183Deep Fried Mantis Prawn with Salted Egg Yolk was quite good too.


We wanted Siong Tong Lala, but too bad Lala ran out of stock. So we were recommended to these Fresh Razor Clam (still in aquarium) for RM5 each. Cooked with rice wine, ginger and garlic. And also some cili padi and wolfberry.

Verdict : Looking for some good and affordable seafood, do pay a visit to Restaurant Tak Fok. Requires abit of waiting time during peak hour.
