Been wanting to try this restaurant since reading bout it in Icecube’s and *::||Life of the Food Lovers||::*. Since The Curve is a shopping mall situated further from my house which i seldom go to, today finally went there to have lunch. And that also un-intended, because wanted to eat the banana leaves in Colonial Times which is so delicious, and also free flow rice, *heart* rice with dhal… and the price is reasonably cheap(for lunch time banana leaves only, ala carte can be quite expensive), but it was on renovation, so settle for backup plan – Bubba shrimps, which coincidently few doors away.
Bubba Gump Shrimps opened its first restaurant in 1996 on Monterey, California. Decorations in this restaurant is inspired by the movie Forest Gump, staring Tom Hanks.
Complimentary crackers while waiting for your orders. Sauces in the bucket: Lingham chili sauce, Heinz tomato sauce and gourmet vinegar.
Blueberry smoothie, RM10.90
blueberries, strawberry, and non-fat vanilla frozen yoghurt.
thick and yummy
Lotsa Lava, RM10.90
creamy coconut and sweet pineapple erupt with a strawberry flow.
Looks sweet but it is actually refreshing sourish
Cajun Shrimp, RM20.90
Sauteed in hot and spicy Cajun butter sauce. Served with garlic bread. Find the bread a bit stale and dry.
Bourbon Street Baramundi, RM29.90
Charbroiled cajun spiced baramundi with bourbon street sauce and shrimp, served over mashed potatoes.
Although i do find this dish slightly too salty, it is quite delicious, the fish is moist and easily flaked. Red potatoes are mashed skin on. Shrimps are fresh.

Restaurant Woo Pin, just “wondering” around Kepong not knowing what to eat, Woo Pin caught my eye, just as i have read bout it in wAntAn productions etc.

My pumpkin barley RM2
Other drinks they selling include sugar cane chestnut, chrystaneum ginseng, ginkgo soya barley, sea coconut logan, wintermelon barley, pumpkin barley, all priced at RM2, but on our visit that day, only chrystaneum ginseng and pumpkin barley available.

left is fish paste noodle(big), RM7.50.
Right is fish head noodle(small) RM6.50
You can opt for meehoon or Yee Mee, or even just the soup without any noodle.
Direction to the restaurant
Overall, wish the soup is clearer instead being filled with soft tomatoes, i had better. While i was asking for the shop owner for name card, he asked me what’s that for, just told him i write for fun, in my heart, i am thinking i am not going to write a good review bout them, gahhh, the irony of food reviewing, of being honest, and being “considerate”, may the spirit of finding the best food triumph… 😀
They also have a branch in Cheras Flats, not  sure where that is.

Anyone has any idea on what crab this is? I was given these claws and told that for this crab, they eat only the claws… and i am wondering why the claws have black tips. And was told this crab is from deep sea… that’s all i know, taste like normal crab to me, maybe more organic… haha

Ever since i read blog post on this egg tart, Babe in the City – KL and Eat First Think Later, been waiting for Canton-I in Mid Valley’s opening so that i can put my mouth on it.
disappointing, first off, it is not cheap. RM5 + tax for 3 pieces. And it is very oily, couldn’t even hold the egg tart properly.
