Slurp Cafe , 3 Two Square PJ

Slurp Cafe Malaysia is opened for a month now. I heard of this place from my sister and her boyfriend. They hangout at 3 Two Square most of the time for convenience. Slurp Cafe is located next door to Starbucks Coffee.

Slurp Cafe serves Japanese fusion food. You can expect a mix of Japanese, Western, Italian and Malaysian flavours. The chef is also one of the 3 owners of this cafe. Young jovial chap that actually came out and talk to customers and ask how was the food and whether everything is okay.

He did mention that service can be slow sometimes due to staffing matter. They are working on it and he did warn us that people have complaint about it. They are trying their best to work on it and hope that everyone will give them a chance.

I have no problem with that as long as I'm not too hungry that day!

Cute logo. The character is lying on its back after a hearty meal is what I derive from the logo.

Batmobile in the house.



The walls of this cafe is lined with cute cartoon and super heroes. The first impression is that this is an otaku (Japanese term that refers to people with obsessive interests, commonly the anime and manga fandom- taken from Wiki) cafe.

Complimentary drink on a shot glass. Lemon-y in taste. I assume this is to open up our appetite for what awaits us.

Cafe Latte

Americano. They serve Musetti (italian coffee) brand.

Chicken Chop Curry Rice. Portion here are huge. You won't leave here hungry. Instead of using Japanese rice, the chef uses fragrant rice mixed with herbs. Generous portion of curry potatoes,eggs, chicken chop and papadom.

Side view of the Pan Fried Dory. Simple dish that taste very good.

 After tasting the food that we have ordered, we will be back again. We can feel that the chef cooks from his heart and he genuinely care about what he puts on a plate. Most people will comment that the portion is huge.

I even asked the chef whether they make any money out of it. Looking at the price and the portion served. He said shyly, "a bit lar". As he wants to serve people quality food.

Tai Lei Loi Kei

There's a new chain of pork related restaurants opening up in Klang Valley. From what I know, it is a mouthful and they serve pork. I've tried pronouncing it a couple of times and it doesn't come out right. So I asked my sister who can read and write Chinese the correct pronounciation. She said, "Aiyah, it's the same as how you read it in English lah..ish".

Tai Lei Loi Kei is a famous makan place in Macau and I've never been there so I didn't know. I went to their outlet in Damansara Uptown twice before decided to blog about it. The concept is interesting and the food is simple. To me, it is nothing to shout about. But it is a simple restaurant that serves pork and has a simple menu to choose from.

You walk into any outlet. Go straight to the cashier counter, place your order and pay for it. Have a seat and wait for your food. There is a number-ing system here and you wait til the number appear on the LED screen, then you walk back to the counter to collect your food. Simple and easy.

Love the artsy light fixture here. As you can see, this was extracted from my Instagram.

Curry fish balls. I feel that the road side fried fish ball is nicer but hey! this is something that the Hongkies and Macau people like. Don't hate!

Pork ribs rice. This comes with a soft drink. The rice is a bit dry but this could be caused by the person that cooks it. Less water than usual ?

Porks ribs with soft noodle. Light meal and perfect for ladies. Not too oily as well.

Ummason Korean Restaurant, Desa Sri Hartamas

If you've read my previous blog post you would know that I've recently gone K-crazy. I've always had a soft spot for Korean food. With my increase love for K-drama, the love for all things Korean grew exponentially.

I have a friend who's taste bud is more picky than mine recommends me this place. Ummason Korean Restaurant in Desa Sri Hartamas. So far I've been there more than 5 times and I love it. Another good thing about this place is that they open until 2am. If I'm craving for Korean food after midnight, I know where to go.

The photos below are taken on different occassions.

Banchan (side dishes)

Baby anchovies. If I'm not mistaken, it is caramelised with sugar like how my grandma make it and served with plain porridge.
 
Homemade kimchi. I don't like cabbage but I eat kimchi, it's so weird.

This is my ultimate favorite item in the whole menu. DakDdongJib (Fried chicken gizzards). I wish that I drink beer or any form of alcohol. I think this will be a great complement.

Kimchi Jjim (Steamed pork with kimchi). Quite light and watered down soup. The pork is tender.

The only item for BBQ is this. SamGyeopSal (Grilled Pork Loin). This version may differ from what you order. This is because we have ordered a lot and couldn't possibly finish it so we asked the waiter nicely if we could order a single portion of meat instead.

Don't you love the way I arrange the meat and onions? Here, you have to cook your own food. Don't be a spoil brat and expect people to cook for you.

Budae Jjigae (Pot Luck Stew with Hot Dogs and Baked Beans). This also comes with loads of ham and it's effing delicious. No joke. This is my husband's favorite and we order this everytime we eat there.

Gamja Tang (Pork Rib soup with potatoes). I love the soup for it's pungent taste of fermented beans. My younger siblings dislike it so much that they did not finish the soup. I guess the older a person gets, the more they crave for strong tasting food. My parents, me and my hub love this. The meat practically falls off the bone. And it is served with chunky potatoes. My favorite!

Although the interior of this restaurant is not much to look at. It looks pretty run down and quite empty everytime we go but the food is awesome. It feel very homecooked as what the restaurant is named after, "Ummason". It roughly translates to mom's hands or mom's cooking.

Daorae Express, Paradigm Mall

I have been too busy Instagramming and watching K-drama recently to blog, mian hamnida (sorry in Korean). I have not forgotten about eating and staying merry, don't worry!

It has been a while since I last visit Paradigm Mall, PJ and I was there today to watch "Thor" with some friends. They left right after the movie and I stayed behind with Mr Hubs coz I wanted to shop badly. Couldn't find the shoe that I wanted from Zara and only bought a 9V battery from Popular bookstore.

Anyway, we passed by Daorae Express and gave it a try. We used to dine at their restaurant every month and were curious about the difference.

First off, you place your own order on an order chit and pass it to the floor crew.
Secondly, most food item comes in a set (like bento meal).
Last but not least, they use local rice instead of Korean rice. (a big no-no for me)

Jujube (Daechu) tea to prevent cold hands and feet and prevents aging.
 
Gun Mandu (dumplings) - meh
 
My order of Pork Bulgogi set. I finish every single food item here. Bulgogi was a bit on the sweeter side. But it's okay. Been craving for it for a while now and most places only serve Beed Bulgogi and I can't eat that.

I will try their soup next round. I wonder whether it'll taste the same as their normal restaurant.
