PJ_32_Meat_N_Match

PJ_33_Meat_N_Match

garlic naan, RM3.80, being a big eater that i am, i can be satisfied with just 3 cut pieces, instead of 4 pieces that is comes in, as the naan is very big portion and filling, can safely say this is one of the best place to eat naan

PJ_34_Meat_N_Match

egg naan, their naan is quite good, can try

PJ_61_Shogun2U_Delivery

Colleague and I order Shogun2u.com, there was an a deal from 11street whereby RM22 for RM50 worth of shogun2u online shopping voucher, that works out to more than 50% discount, i had vegetable bibimbap, works out to only RM8.50 after discount, totally worth it

Amcorp_Mall_Misc_Eats_4_1977_ChickenRice

ChoongKeeKamparClaypotRice1

menu

ChoongKeeKamparClaypotRice2

This could be my favourite claypot chicken rice, the rice grain is good without being mushy or hard, there is no overwhelming soy sauce, just enough of sauce to have some of the rice still looking white, and only chicken thigh/drumstick meat used, very nice!

Was craving for some of their steamed soup, but it ran out while we were there during a weekday evening ):

Ode to Newton Vanilla Souffle in Bistro a Table and Recipe: Chocolate Souffle

Souffle3

Bistro a table is among the few restaurant in Kuala Lumpur which serve souffle, a dessert which looks so gloriously good due to its height and look so light. Above is their copyrighted Ode to Newton which is a vanilla souffle with custard and hot ginger drink top with some lemongrass ice halve with nutmeg ice cream, the ice cream is suppose to drop into the hot ginger drink once we are done eating the souffle. around RM38

I like all the items individually, and not together, the souffle and cream are nice on its own, mixing them together make it slightly wet and mushy. Whereas the ice cream and ginger drink are good on its own as well, mixing them both together just make it into a lukewarm gingery milky drink which is not too appetizing.

Souffle4

Souffle1

After eating my second souffle in Bistro a Table, first i had in Augustin Restaurant, Ho Chi Minh. Above my first try making it using souffle recipe for 2 pax by Eugenie Kitchen.

Souffle2

Some adjustment made, not having milk, i use whipped cream substituting some of it with water. It turn out quite good, rising high. Success!
