I Just Wana Eat

Enjoy Food. Enjoy Life.

By chance, I became a follower of Cake Jalantiung on Instagram, and I more often than not, realized that I actually salivate when I looked at how tempting the cake that this cafe produces. I was also attracted to how passionate the team behind this cafe have towards what they are doing. 

Recently, I saw the news that they opened their second outlet, also within Shah Alam, and I 
after numerous failed attempt to be here, I finally did, today. Yay! Have a small sense of achievement, somewhat. Haha. 

Located at the corner lot below Menara Naza, I had some difficulty finding the right lift to get to the Ground Floor of this building. Apparently they have the office block lift that links to the cafe, and the one I went to was the Residences section of the building. 

I can't wait to check out the cakes that await us on this Friday afternoon. 

The simple cosy corner occupied by Cake Jalan Tiung 
Overall, I find that they have limited choices of drink, however, I feel that it is fine, as the focus of their existence is their yummylicious cakes.

Simple offering of drinks 
I love their use of simple blend of pastel colors, and the panels that matches hanging from the ceiling, and side panel of their counter. 

A colorful area that is their cashier and cake display area
We ordered their Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake, and their Chocolate Tart. Both deserved thumbs up. 

Lovely use of plates
Its highly tempting when I looked at this piece of cake. The chocolate cake, was insanely delectable. It has just the right level of texture which has the right balance of density, and extremely moist. It has a light coating of buttercream, and drizzled with lots of salted caramel on top of the cake. The salted caramel truly matches perfectly with the chocolate cake. The blend of saltiness, caramely taste, ooohh la la.... superb taste...

It has been a long long time that I haven't tasted something this lip-smacking. 

Salted Caramel & Choc. Price-RM13

Upon feeling satisfied over the cakes, and the chocolate tart which was extremely chocolatey, we ordered their chocolate chips cookies. 

The cookies were heated up slightly, and served with small glass of milk, which we are to dip into with the cookies.  
Love the slightly soft cookies, and yet slightly crunchy but what kills it was the thick chocolate used within the cookies. It has the melted chocolate that tasted extremely tantalizing. 

Chocolate Chip Cookies. 5pcs - RM8

The soft melted effect of the chocolate within the cookies 
Cake Jalan Tiung also supply their cakes to quite a number of cafes around town, and the type of cake differs from time to time. Do check out their Instagram to find out more info. 

Their space is rather limited, but that definitely doesn't deter their fans from flocking to this cake to fulfill their craving for cakes.

Portofino @ Lucky Garden, Bangsar

Posted by Sherlyn K On 5:36 PM 0 comments

This F&B outlet surely had caught my attention when I passed by. 2 days later, I received an invitation by Chef Keli which I gladly accepted. Could be the "The Secret" presented itself. Hehe. 

Striking blue signage that enough to catch ones' attention  

The lower level of Portofino definitely drew some similarity to Porto Romano where I see frames of pictures made up of movie posters hung neatly all around the wall. 

Intimate seating environment 
As I stepped upstairs, the ambiance drew a more simple and classy setting with ample space, that is very well suited for company events, or parties. I was informed that on every Tuesdays and alternate Saturdays, there are group of salsa lovers that would dine and enjoy some salsa moves throughout the night.

Ample space upstairs 
The name of the restaurant was taken after this beautiful Italian fishing village and famous resort vacation spot famed for its picturesque harbour. 

Named after Portofine,, Liguria 
Portofino in Bangsar is jointly owned by 2 Italians, Chef Keli, Lucas, and owner of Porto Romano. As I shared my conversation with these two gentleman blessed with good Italian genes, I immediately gathered that they were both incredibly passionate about running this F&B outlet. Chef Keli had vast background in the culinary field ever since young, and during a trip to Malaysia, he was shared the idea of setting up a restaurant. When back to Italy, the idea was proposed to his dear friend, Lucas and before we know it, Portofino was made possible, and they have recently celebrated their 1st anniversary on 6 Oct 2015. 

Varieties of spaghetti were the main highlight for my lunch. Apart from the standard pastas, I've not seen one restaurant offering this many varieties - from ravioli, pappardelle, gnocchi, tortellini, tagliatelle. All their pasta are freshly made, and Chef Keli ensures that he uses the best supply available and am highly particular with each ingredient used. He also goes personally to the fresh market for some selection of fish and prawns. 

The highly recommended pasta was their Cannelloni ai Fruitti di Mare/Seafood Cannelloni. The fresh pasta are cut into long shape, to form a round shape. Within it, it is filled with cuts of fresh prawns, squid, mussels, fish and bechamel sauce. I love this fresh and reviving outlook of Cannelloni. Love the 3 round shape of pasta, served on top of very yummy gravy, accompanied by a neat portion of salad and decorative chocolate sauce. The gravy was cooked using fish stock, and to ensure quality of every sip of taste that goes into the mouth, the stock was cooked using prawn head, red snapper and its bone, together with tomato paste, celery, red onion, carrot, parsley, and cooked for 3 hours.

The pasta was baked with perfection, with slight crisp on top, and the creaminess of cheese on top. I love the generous portion of seafood used that tasted so delicious. That's not all, I found more generous cuts of prawns below the pasta, and with sweetness of the gravy, this tasted heavenly. 
Seafood Cannelloni. Price-RM36
Secondly, we were served the Tortellini Caserecci / Homemade Tortellini. It was the fresh tortellini stuffed with chicken meat and beef bacon, then cooked with cream, mushroom and turkey ham. The texture carried a slight thickness yet chewy and soft when eaten, and love the extremely creamy sauce. 

Homemade Tortellini. Price-RM38 

Each tortellini were filled with so much of chicken and beef bacon, and I could taste the freshness of the meat. 
All the goodness goo-ing out of the tortellini 
Thirdly, we had the Squid Ink Pasta. This was freshly made using black ink from squid. The tenderness of the pasta was apparent, and it was extremely fresh. The gravy has the fishy sweetness taste to it, and a hint of basil. Yumms.. 

Squid Ink Tagliatelle. Price-RM36

I thank Chef Keli to use cream quality that tasted so incredibly good that made this Gnocchi so luscious. This is made using mashed potato, flour, salt, pepper and parmesan cheese, and then cooked with imported cooking cream, blue cheese, and bacon. This indeed was my first time trying 'potato dumpling'. 

Gnocchi with Gorgonzola Cheese. Price-RM36

In the past, I have been recommended tiramisu which I was disappointed after I tasted it. I can't wait to taste what is this bowl of tiramisu made of. 

It was made using a long process, to ensure the authenticity of the tiramisu could be savored by its customers. First marsala being cooked, and then mixed with mascarpone, whipping cream, and combined with italian fingers soaked with almond liquor, kahlua and coffee, to derived with this bowl of tiramisu. The softness and the creaminess of the mascarporne was indeed melodious, and coupled with the apparent taste of alcohol, this was indeed a blissful bowl of tiramisu. 

Tiramisu. Price-RM16

The spoon of goodness
My meal ended pleasantly with a plate of dessert that brightened my mood instantly. This has to be one of the best well presented plate of dessert. This pannacotta tasted perfect - soft, and creaminess of the cream made me so delightful. The tinge of orange, and lemon zest gave the taste of this pannacotta an extra umph.  The fact that I'm so full and I can still feel how delicious this was, it must be divine. It indeed was one of the best dessert I ever tasted.

Tasted so good and so beautiful to see. Pannacota. Price-RM14
Flanked by the really tall chef, Chef Keli and Lucas 

I was indeed so pleased with the food quality, and more so of the passion that I felt that brimmed through Chef Keli as he explained to me on each and every dish served. The hospitality extended by both Chef Keli and Lucas were so warm. After this visit, I had the feeling of falling in love during my 1st date, and I can't wait to go for the next date, which I in fact had done so, the week after.

Kee's Creampuff @ Subang Jaya

Posted by Sherlyn K On 10:49 AM 0 comments

Having tried Kee's Creampuff since their opening, it will soon celebrate their 3rd anniversary come July '15. During this time, I have seen that they have received good media exposure, and their product extension plan seems to be going on well, where they introduced their savoury creampuffs during late September 2014. 

Makes you wanna go in to have a bite or two 
Using orange as its core color, one will see the vibrant color making up big signages outside, inside, wall color, and any items that represent their brand.

Inside seating 
Kee's Creampuff carries 3 range of puffs, from classic creampuffs, their original taste, premium creampuffs which sees option of flavors such as blueberry, chocolate banana, cookies and cream, and in total, it has 15 flavors, which includes their specialty flavor, the durian creampuffs.  

For those who isn't up to have creampuffs, they also offer cakes, tea and coffee. 
Yummy tasting creampuffs and cakes on display 
Kee's Creampuff has attractive set meals, which in fact is a good idea to opt for.

Options of set meals 
In the past I have tried their range of classic and premium creampuffs, and I was really curious on how their savoury creampuffs taste like.

Kee's Creampuff is baked made out of choux dough mixed with mozzarella, cheddar and parmesan. To add on more elements, they infused parsley and thyme in their puff. 

I took their savoury puff set, which came with choice of 2 puffs, garden salad and chips, and 1 cup of americano or tea. With RM1.50, we can upgrade to cappuccino, latte or hot chocolate. 

The puff carried a slight crisp on the top part of the puff. Within the puff, they gave real generous portion of the filling. 

We opted for the sour cream and chicken ham bits. This was extremely delicious, and was truly appetizing due to the sourness taste from the sour cream and the chicken bits gave a good texture to the taste bud. 

The curry chicken with walnut prove to be a good combination, as the curry tasted yummy, ain't too spicy, chicken was in good size, and overall the crunchiness of walnut makes this a much recommended choice. 

Savory Puff Set. Price-RM13.80 

Curry chicken with Walnut (L) and Sour Cream & Chicken Ham Bits (R)
Kee's uses arabica made of Columbia beans, supplied by Hot Shots at Publika. The bean is of single origin, thus one will be able to taste how this Columbia beans taste like.

This indeed was a good cup of coffee, creamy and strong coffee flavor. 

Latte which came as part of our set (normal price-RM8)
The other available set was the Creampuff Tea Set, that comes with 2 creampuffs and an americano or tea. The price of set differs by selection of the type of creampuffs, with price differs from RM9, RM10 or RM11 for choices of classic, premium or durian puffs, respectively.

We took the durian puff set which is priced at RM11 (ala carte price would have been RM5.60 for puffs + RM7 for tea = RM12.60).

Seriously, the durian creampuff was insanely yummy, filled with its pure, creamy durian pulp. Kee's Creampuff's recipe for their puff differs from those available in the market,with theirs carrying a much softer texture. The durian paste was light enough for me to not me want more, yet thick enough to satisfy my craving for durian.

Durian Puff (normal price - RM2.80 per pc) 

Doesn't this make you wanna gobble down the durian puff? 
The tea bag they used was of good quality, and gave blossoms smell of the calming flavor of the chamomile. 

Chamomile Tea, which is part of Creampuff Tea Set (normal price - RM7)
This is indeed the right food, for someone that is looking for light food, dessert or party food.

Original plan to eat elsewhere diverted to Restoran Chang Rai, as the other restaurant wasn't open. Blessing in disguise does happen when my buddy recalled this yummy Thai restaurant she once had near Cheras area. 

From the outside, the restaurant looked pretty ordinary, but my impression of this place immediately changed when our food was served.

Entrance of Chang Rai 
When asked for recommendation between the Red or Clear Tom Yum soup, the lady recommended the Red type. We went with the recommendation and we were pleased that we did. 

Although it does looked pretty oily, but one sip to the soup, we smiled... The overall taste of spiciness was well balanced by the mild sourness apparent from the broth. The richness  and fragrance of the soup that derived from the raw ingredients and herbs used in the making of the Tom Yam paste was highly satisfactory. Adequate seafood which includes prawn and squid were used, with lots of abalone mushroom. 

For a mere cost of RM18, this is a pot of soup that is very much worth it.

Tomyam Seafood. Price-RM18

The fish cake was tasty, with the right texture for my tastebud. Taste wise, thumbs up, and I just loved the fragrant of the spices used within.

Fish Cake. Price-RM12
The paku vege was real fresh and I love the slight crunchiness when biting this breed of vege. It is not too leafy yet just enough to fulfill our need for vege. Stir fried with sambal and  onion, this plate of paku was highly delicious.

Paku Vege. Price-RM12

The talapia fish was fantastic. It was absolutely fresh, and the lime juice used, together with cuts of chilli and garlic made this entire dish so appetizing and smells good. 

The fish shape platter used for this steam fish was the traditional type whereby it uses charcoal, and it kept our fish piping hot throughout our meal.

Talapia Fish, Lime Steam. Price-RM40
The pandan chicken came in a much bigger size that what I usually have in other Thai restaurant. Of all dishes, this was the only let down to us. It has a strong fragrance of the spices used, however, lack taste. It was bland, which somewhat suggest that perhaps they forgot to add the salt. Look wise, it surely gotten a pass. 

Pandan Chicken (min 4 pcs). Price-RM3 each
The 3 of us left with almost bursting stomach. Highly satisfied, with double LIKES for all dishes, except for the Pandan Chicken. Am also very satisfied with the whole dinner price that came to RM108 including 2 coconuts.

Definitely a recommended Thai restaurant serving authentic Thai dishes, for those coming or live near to this area.

Again I made my visit to Shisha Lounge. This is just a post to show what I had during lunch. 

I often find myself craving for them, so I just had to order both chicken dishes. 
Their chicken is just fantastic.  Tasted so good, with excellent marination done.

And they offer super good deal for lunch. On the right is their chicken breast kebab offered as part of set lunch which cost only RM15, which includes that, a plate of saffron rice, salad and a can of soft drink. Ain't sure where else to find such good deal. 

As for the chicken on the left hand side, its Chicken Kebab on bone. Its only available for ala-carte  ala-carte order. Because it taste so good, I was even willing to order it despite it cost more than double of the set lunch price. Super yummy. I almost can't help myself even as I'm sharing this.

Chicken Kebab on Bone. Price-RM35 and Joojeh Lunch Promotion. Price-RM15

Nosh-Up @ Atria, Damansara Jaya

Posted by Sherlyn K On 5:23 PM 0 comments

I am indeed a little excited to check out the revamped Atria exactly 1 month after it reopened on 28 May 2015. I had an extremely good feeling stepping into the mall, and walking from one end to the other, I am caught with slight surprise that the space that used to be occupied by the previous Atria was indeed this spacious. 

As I walked pass Nosh-Up close to noon, I see that it is really packed. A good sign to try out this restaurant. From the amount of crowd, the ambiance of the restaurant, mix of its food offering, and when this came to my thought "Really, Rm10 soup?", I just felt that their price will not be throat cutting. PASS.. ENTER!

Nosh-Up has a very contemporary design, vibrant colors yet not overly done, and warm lighting. 

Inviting entrance to Nosh Up
On their side wall, they use simple wording like 'Eat, Enjoy, Satisfy' to express what they are to deliver to their customers, and to the end of the premise, there lies a more colorful wall, that gives a rather 'homey' feeling. 

Their selection of food offering combines Asian Fusion which really gives comprehensive varieties whereby one can get to savor western choices of soup, salad, main meals that ranges from western to asian, breakfast set, western main meals, very good choice of desserts and many options of drinks. 

The fact that they have good amount of crowd at the same time, waiting time was rather reasonable, and I see that food is being served rather promptly.

I am happy with the choice of Minestrone soup as a starter. It was not the usual plain garlic bread that came together with the soup, but rather, it is 2 slices of bruschetta that is toasted with some cheese. They tasted really yummy, and the soup is even better. The soup is flavorful, with almost half of it filled with what is used to boil the soup. It comprises of celery, potato, zucchini, onion, and carrot. The ingredients are to my interpretation of what I see, as they are all mixed up with some carrying almost the same color. 

Italian Minestrone. Price-RM10

My friend ordered their Leek and Mushroom Chicken Pie. We love how the used the wooden flat board to present the food. It came with delicious bowl of creamy mushroom, chicken and leek, baked with cheese on top, the very flaky and light in texture pie, the greens, and a piece of some potato.

Chicken, Mushroom & Leek Pie. Price-RM22

I like some surprises within my food thus I order the Grilled Chicken Duxelle as it has mushroom stuffed in the chicken. My little heart is jumping with joy when I am presented with this compelling plate of very mouthwatering plate of food. 

First that went to my mouth is the salsa by the side. It was sourish enough to open up my senses to food. The saute vegetable taste absolutely divine. I am not sure what is added to marinate them, but the tastiness of this is insane! The most satisfying saute vegetable I ever had! 

I tasted the sauce before I poured them in, and it carries taste of spiciness. However, it worked out perfectly when mixed with the rest of the food. I also like the healthy baked sliced potatoes and some vegetables. 

There are lots of mushroom stuffed within the chicken. Mushroom is flavory, and goes so well with the chicken. Chicken taste is good, but because its chicken breast, I think much stronger marination is required, as the other parts of the food within this plate seems to overtake the taste of the chicken.

Grilled Chicken Duxelle. Price-RM29

The fridge that display their cake should be feeling proud by what it is displaying. The cakes  all look so alluring and the particular 2 that catch my eyes are the macadamia cheesecake, and their tiramisu coated with plenty of caramelized almond. Price wise, RM14-RM15 a slice is consider standard, and in fact, reasonable, given the fact that in return one gets to taste cake that is made with the best of ingredients. My stomach disagrees when I try to convince to take on some dessert. I like that I now know how to put a stop to the volume of intake. Haha. Soon, I will be back!

Cakes that looks heavenly 

I am pleasantly surprised when the bill came together with a 15% discount. This is being offered as their opening special which is valid till 30 June 2015. 

I can't wait to be back to try out their other offerings, with a bigger crowd, definitely.

One of the most recommended F&B outlet by friends to me of late was the Mei by Fat Spoon where I was told they serve very interesting Japanese fusion food. I had in the past saw recipe book by this 2 sisters that runs Mei, where the recipes shared are beyond the ordinary ones, and they cleverly add different ingredients to add twist to the otherwise could have been ordinary dish. With that, great anticipation surrounded me when I headed towards this outlet last week. 

I somewhat missed the spot when I passed by for the first time as the sign of their name was mainly on the glass door. Much sunshine goes through its glass window by the front and side of the outlet.  A feeling of freshness gushed through me as I stepped in. Just loved the simplicity of the place where they used mainly whites as part of their interior design. 

The outside of Mei by Fat Spoons 

Certainly very packed during lunch time

Drink counter and cash register area 

Overall, I find that they have good selection of food and drinks. Plus point is that, their prices are reasonably priced, as compared to many other F&B outlets. I liked how they name their juices, from Red, Green, Orange, Yellow and White, describing the colors of fruits used to derive with the juices. 

I ordered the Red Juice, which comprised of red dragonfruit, watermelon, apple and goji berries. Tasted naturally good, with dragonfruit taste being more apparent than the rest. 

Dina ordered the Yellow Juice, which comprised of passionfruit, honey pineapple, banana and lemon. Slightly sourish, this was just the right drink to open up anyone's appetite.

Red Juice. Price-RM12, Yellow Juice. Price-RM10
As starter, we took the Hokkaido Scallop and the Lychee Tartare. Just imagine yourself eating sashimi scallop, where you get to taste the largely chopped scallop, coupled with canned lychee, placed on top of lightly blend sauce, and accompanied by cuts of spring onions and fresh baby tomatoes. Refreshing offering.

Scallop and Lychee Tartare. Price-RM28
Sashimis are always welcomed by Japanese food lovers, and me being one, couldn't resist to order their bowl of rice that seemed to offer many good stuffs in one order. 

I was absolutely happy with presentation of the bowl of rice, mainly because the freshness of the fish and ingredients which seemed to brimmed onto me, and I love the combination of the colors. Natural and bright. 

Freshness indeed is the most crucial when it comes to Japanese food, and thus, this order certainly fits the bill. Generous amount and size of salmon were provided, avocado, japanese cucumbers, pickled, ikura (I just love the feeling of my tongue bursting them inside my mouth) and shreds of seaweed. The mixed texture felt by the tastebud was certainly satisfying. It ranged from crunchiness of the items, combined with softness and freshness of the fish, mixed with bits of wasabi to each bite - and all this combined, made a good bowl of rice.  

Within the rice, was the light homemade sauce which tasted just nice. Not too salty yet carried enough taste to give you a good balance of being able to taste the natural ingredients from all the good stuff that came with this order.

Salmon, Ikura and Avocado. Price-RM28

Salmon, Ikura and Avocado. Price-RM28. Upon mixed up, still look so good.

What my friend ordered was in fact very similar, with an exception of additional scallop and yellowtail fish. I love how fancy they have named this dish, the Summer Bara Chirashi Bowl. This would be much recommended for hard core fish lovers, as it had the salmon fish, salmon roe, yellowtail, and scallop as well.

Summer Bara Chirashi Bowl. Price-RM38

This place definitely calls for another visit soon, and when I stole a look at their spaghetti,, being ordered by a customer seated next to me, I have already planned in mind to have that the very next time I'll be here.
