Back in September, we celebrated May’s birthday at Chicago not the actual city in the US but the restaurant that’s available at One Utama, where it’s famed for it’s ribs, pork ribs that is.
I’ve bought a Livingsocial deal earlier and it comes in set consist of a salad, a main meal and dessert which I thought was a pretty good deal. I’ve also booked a table via the Tableapp website, where you can conveniently reserve a place at some of the best restaurants in town. The app is also available on the app store for iOS devices.
There’s a few selection of mains, but seeing this big writing on the walls, we must order their famous pork ribs.
Our set meal comes with a cold salad, which basically a lot of greens with some nuts with it. I can’t eat any of it because of my gout reaction. Not the best salad but it’s alright.
There’s a total of 5 different flavours for the ribs and depending on your choice, there’s a small price difference as well. I opted for the Flaming Kansas City, while May ordered the Caramelized Plum, both we have no regrets ordering. The server was also kind enough to tell us that it’s better for us to order these 2 are it’s price higher at RM39.90 per half a rack.
Caramelized Plum Ribs, with 2 sides of green salad and baked potato. The ribs are tender and soft, and the plum sauce is very appetizing as well. Although the portion looked small, but it’s pretty filling for lunch.
The server preparing my Flaming Kansas City ribs, looks really cool!
If you’re a fan of spicy food, the Flaming Kansas City sauce is the way to go. Marinated with black pepper and with a tinge of liquor, it’s as good as it looks. Once again, the ribs are top notch, juicy and tender.
May’s parents joined the lunch as well and the basically order a set lunch that is available. But the only downside is they may only order the lower price ribs but the BBQ sauce is equally good. Their fries is also pretty special as it’s beer coated.
The set also comes with a BBQ Chicken Pizza but it was just so so.
The drinks that we order are pretty special too Banana Berry and Peach Lynch both at RM6.90 with the sets (usual price at RM12.90).
By the time desserts were served, we were pretty stuffed! Having said that, the Brownie and the Bread Pudding are pretty delicious, if only we were not that stuff up from the meal, we could have easily finished all of it.
I think Chicago Ribs are worth a try, if you’re into ribs, especially pork ribs. It’s good to know there’s another good place to finally have pork ribs, since Tony Roma’s, which is also famous for ribs, don’t serve pork here in Malaysia.

I’ve been living near Old Klang Road for close to 18 years (since birth), and that’s way before the huge transformation that’s happening especially with the Scott Garden area, which used to be just a row of shop houses that were rather old school. And when I took the bus last time to school, I would passed by this row of shop houses, and there’s always a few shops that’s selling Bak Kut Teh. However, not once have I eaten there before, as my family preferred BKT place was always Meng Kee in PJ Old Town.
However a couple of months back, me together with a few friends plan to have drinks at Scott Garden, and decided to have dinner at this place which is by the NPE overhead bridge and is famous for it’s fish, among with it’s BKT.
Underneath the zinc roof, you can see rows of tables with a number on top of each tables. I guess it’s easier that way to determine customer’s orders.
A complete table shot before dwelling in onto each individual dish.
We ordered Claypot BKT (RM30) for 3 pax and it comes with lots crispy ‘Foo Chuk’. Since everyone like needle mushrooms, we ordered extra at RM4 per plate to add in as well.
The soup is heavily infused with herbal flavor, but tasted average. The good thing was the staff won’t hesitate to add more soup if yours is finished, so like one of my friend, he practically ate 3 bowls of rice with the refills.
Vegetables to go with the meat, and of course Yau Char Gwai (RM3 per bowl).
Pork Trotters (RM10) was pretty good compare to the BKT. The braised meat was tender, another good dish to accompany plenty of bowls of rice.
Ginger Steamed Fish Head (RM31 for big portion) was easily the highlight of the meal. The fish was fresh and comes with a generous portion of crushed ginger and garlic. There’s other method of steaming like Assam and Soya Sauce too but their signature is the Ginger one.
Overall, my view was the Steamed Fish Head was pretty good and could be easily the signature dish for the place as compare to the BKT here. Price was pretty alright considering we pay RM103 for 6 of us (and some of us have 2-3 bowls of rice).

One of Kayden and Kendric’s favourite bedtime story since they were young is about the three little pigs using their wits to out do the big bad wolf. Upon knowing this catchy name of a restaurant in Bangsar Village (and also a group buy voucher), we head for lunch one fine day in May.
Always like nice deco like this in a restaurant, looks like a cool place to hang out for coffee.
The 2 boys while waiting for the food to come. The place comes with different sets of menu from day and night, hence the tag ‘When the sun goes down and the 3 little pigs go home, the big bad wolf comes out to play’. Since we were there during lunch time, we’re probably presented with the 3 little pigs menu although a night visit is needed to confirm the big bad wolf menu.
We didn’t hesitate and order quickly some of the signature dishes like The Wolf’s Favourite Pasta (RM28). Creamy spaghetti with smoked pork bacon, topped with poached egg and crispy bacon egg, it’s one of the best carbonara that I’ve tasted before.
I’m So Hungry I Could Eat A Wolf (RM28) is the perfect breakfast set if you’re really hungry. Sausage and bacon, sauteed mushroom and a runny scrambled eggs alongside hash brown and bread, you can’t go wrong with this combination. Notable mention is the President butter, goes well with the bread that I even bought a pack from Village Grocer.
You don’t get a lot of joints selling pork burger here in KL, so when you found one, treasure it! Behold the Mighty Piggy Burger (RM24), pork patty with a slice of cheese and an egg served with fries and salad.
I like the juicy patty although again it might be a bit salty for some but it’s just nice for me. I also have this weird habit of eating it layer by layer so that I could cherish the flavour of each layers.
It’s a nice experience eating at 3 Little Pigs, and I must say I would definitely drop back for the pasta and breakfast set since it’s porky!

2 weeks ago, I was invited for a food review at Brotzeit located at Mid Valley Megamall together with some of the Tastebuddies gang from Nuffnang. Despite being a Thursday afternoon, the place is packed with lunch goers savoring special German cuisine.
While waiting for the other foodies to arrive, the chef is kind to present us with a German pizza to start up our journey to Bavarian cuisine. The Brotzeitflade Speck or Bacon Pizza (RM32) is pretty special as the base is made of rye dough compare to the normal yeast dough in Italian Pizza. Topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese, bacon, onions, vine riped tomatoes and chilli, it’s as good as it gets with a slight Asian taste. The rye dough does provide a different texture brought the pizza a different dimension and highly recommended for starters or even as a main meal.
We were also presented with various type of Paulaner beer, each different in taste by adding different type of drinks to it. As we were told, the Germans like to drink beers, more so during their lunch time but since they would need to head back to the office to work, they will normally opt for beers which is low in alcohol content. There’s a few selection to choose from ranging from Russ’n (Wiessbier with lemonade), Radley (Original Munchner Lager with lemonade), Affensaft (Weissbier with banana syrup or mango juice), Bayrischer Longdrink (Original Muchner Lager with vodka and lime juice) and Schwarzer (Weissbier with cola). Managed to try all of it and it does taste different and refreshing after meal, and with it’s lower alcohol content, you can still managed to sneak back to office without being drunk.
Salat mit Schafskase or Feta Salad (RM38) is a great salad to go with all the meat dishes. Mixed salad with feta cheese, red bell pepper, semi-dried tomatoes, onions, olives, garlic croutons and sour cream, it’s good and I like the feta cheese which is creamy and cheesy without any pungent cheese flavour. If you opt to go Vegan at this restaurant, this is the next best thing.
The Oktoberfest Platter (RM258+) is specially created by Chef Helmut for the upcoming Oktoberfest and features Brotzeit’s signature pork knuckle, lumberjack steaks, garlic pork sausages, oven roasted chicken and gipsy bacon.
The set also comes with sauerkraut and potato salad, which makes it best to be share amount friends or family.
Coming back to the patter, both the garlic sausages and gipsy bacons were nice and delicious while the lumberjack steaks are average with minimal seasoning.
The signature pork knuckle had a pretty crunchy skin, while the meat was tender and juice although I do find it lacking any taste but it could be us Asians who like our meat to be full of flavor. Anyways, there’s always brown sauce to complement it. The oven roasted chicken was good too and roast to perfection.
Here’s Chef Helmut showing us how to debone the signature pork knuckle using just a knife, which prove how tender the pork knuckle was.
A fellow blogger hard at work capturing the nicest shot for the Oktoberfest platter. The platter is pretty filling despite there’s 9 of us so looks like we need to come again next time to try their other main dishes.
After a pretty filling mains, we were serve with a variety of dessert, Kaiserschmarren or Emperor’s Cake (RM20( and Profiterole Duet (RM20). The Emperor’s Cake is soft and fluffy shredded pancake with rum and raisin, served with plum sauce while the Profiterole Duet comes with a chocolate profiterole (that feels like cream puff) with vanilla ice cream and cinnamon sugar apple fritter on vanilla sauce.
Sweet & Savoury Duo (RM25) and Bavarian Orange Truffle (RM18). Both are pretty special desserts, with the sweet and savoury duo consist of crispy chocolate bacon on white chocolate mousse with lemon pepper marinated strawberries and apricot sauce. The Orange Truffle is very refreshing with layers of rum and orange infused sponge fingers and fresh cream. The chocolate bacon is pretty special, a concoction of 2 great taste that resulted in a rather weird but tasty combination.
Overall it’s a good 1st food review for myself and I particularly like the salad and the pizza. Wouldn’t mind dropping by again to try the rest of the mains that’s available on their menu though.
However, if you’re reading this and wanted to give the Oktoberfest Platter a try, do head over to Brotzeit as the platter will be available from the 21st September all the way till 31st of October in conjunction with the Oktoberfest celebration. Reservations are always encouraged as seating is limited, and advance purchase of Entrance tickets are recommended at RM50 per pax which includes a pint of Oktoberfest bier and chance to win a range of attractive lucky draw prizes.
So if you have always wanted to go to an Oktoberfest in Munich, Brotzeit’s Oktoberfest celebration could be the next best thing!

Earlier of the year, I’ve made a resolution for myself that I will try to gather the guys for a monthly meet up over dinner just to catch up, but unfortunately the last one that we had was back in April at Morganfield’s.
There’s a lot of places now in the Klang Valley that offers ribs, but only a handful that offer pork ribs, so I was a bit surprised when I got to know that it’s pork ribs that’s serve here rather than the traditional ribs, which in a way is quite different, like the difference between Tony Roma’s in KL and Singapore.
The place consist of 2 areas, the smoking area is located near the entrance and where the bar is also located, while the back is for non smokers. There are a variety of selection of beers if you’re planning for happy hour here.
While waiting for some latecomers, we went ahead and order the Appetizer Platter (RM34.90), which features Morganfield’s famous trio appetizer of Spicy Chicken Wings (which consist of 3 levels of spiciness), Russet Potato Skins and Corn Tortilla Chips served with a selection of dips (Crab & Spinach or Chili Concarne). The chicken wings are indeed spicy, even though we ordered the regular version, and goes well with cold beer. The dips for the Tortilla chips are pretty special and great as tummy fillers.
Knowing that we will be indulging in a lot of meat, we ordered the Smokin’ Duck Salad (RM22.90) just to fill up our vege quota. Smoked duck on a bed of mixed salad, cucumbers, tomatoes, spring onions, red chilies with sesame seed and both hard boiled egg and century egg, it’s definitely something different. Great salad!
The 6 of us didn’t order any mains, as we decided to go ahead to order the Ribs Sampler (RM169.90) because we get to choose all their 3 signature Sticky Bones.
When it’s served, we were really glad that it’s the only thing we order because even with 6 men, we couldn’t finish the entire thing. From left to right, Smoked Peppercorn, Garlicky BBQ and Hickory BBQ.
Grilled Footlong Farmer’s Bratwurst, Thuringer and Hungarian sausage. All 3 were deliciously porky! Some grilled corn hobs and fries to go with it.
Corn bread and garden salad. Just in case you’re not full from the 3 slabs of ribs.
Out of the 3 ribs, I like the Smoked Peppercorn the best, Garlicky BBQ second and Hickory BBQ third but that’s my opinion but don’t take my word, try all 3 and choose the one that you like most!
I wouldn’t mind dropping by again because the food is pretty good and there’s still a lot in the menu that we wanted to try but our tummy is just flat out. Morganfield’s also offer set lunches starting from RM16.90 and the selection is pretty good too. Looking at the photos now already made me drooling, maybe I should go there one of these days.

A week after my procedure last month, I celebrated my birthday with May and the kids at Milwaukee Steak Corner. It was just a simple dinner, just the 4 of us being together as a family.
Kendric and me. Kayden with May. Don’t know why Kayden always squint his eyes when taking photos. Kendric was cute that night because initially we wanted to sit next to the aquarium with a large arowana, but he was scared of it and quickly hug me and wanted to be far away from the fish.
Drinks before the meal.
Escargot we had for the night, the meat was chewy so it’s pretty average.
I ordered the Ostrich meat, which is so chewy like you’re eating a chewing gum but I’ve been warned by the waitress that it’s chewy so it’s my fault for not listening. May ordered Lamb which is alright, although she don’t really like that fat bits that comes with it. Not the best western food dinner but it’s good to be able to spend some time with the kids after laying down on the bed for the past few days after the procedure.
Oreo Mille Crepe from Humble Beginnings. Nice but the chocolate ones are nicer.
This is actually the best birthday ever able to spend it with the kids, knowing that my condition actually got better.
The very next day, we celebrated our birthday with my friends at Fukuya. Have been to Fukuya a few times during my Amex days and find that the food are pretty good, with lots of rooms within the place to have a gathering.
Was meant to be a surprise dinner for me, but we end up being the earliest there. A nice room to accommodate the 11 of us, although the only thing missing is some background music throughout dinner.
Salmon Skin Salad and Tamago as appetizer while waiting for the rest to arrive.
Unagi To Chiri Padi Maki Usukoromo Age (RM36), grilled eel and chilli padi roll fried with lightly tempura batter, served with soya sauce. Something different from the average Maki with the combination of chilli padi, and crunchy bites from the tempura batter.
Spider Maki (RM28) is just as good, with deep fried soft shell crab cucumber and lettuce roll topping with flying fish roe.
Some of us who ordered the set dinner got our appetizer (which I think varies daily). We have a jelly like salmon in the wine glass, a scallop, wrapped salmon and a stick of what we though like taro or yam. Nice start for your set meal.
Chawamushi that comes with our set dinner. The egg custard is soft and fluffy with a variety of mushroom and seafood inside.
My Grilled Eel Set (RM110) comes with a plate of sashimi too, and the cut is quite standard, about 1/2 an inch of a selection of salmon, tuna and butterfish.
Unagi, my favourite is delicious although the portion might be a bit small for the price you pay.
May ordered the Sashimi Set (RM110), and she got more slices of sashimi compare to mine.
A mini tempura set that comes with her set.
Chicken Teppanyaki, a la carte that some of my friends ordered.
Rock Melon as dessert which is part of the dinner set, the only thing missing I guess is parma ham.
Fukuya is definitely a nice Japanese restaurant to have a quiet dinner and if you’re looking for something that is not so main stream like Sushi Tei or Kita no Zen. The price might be on the higher side but the food quality is top notch as well and with the ambience, it’s a great place to celebrate a special occasion. They do serve affordable lunch sets as well called the Fuku Fuku lunch at RM40 where you can choose from a variety dishes ranging from salmon sashimi to cod fish terayaki or even soft shell crab tempura. Overall it’s a nice catching up session so that all of us are on the same page since one of our friend is getting married in September and we get to know what’s the plan for that big day.

With a blink of an eye, it’s been 5 years since of ROM and when I asked May does it felt that long, she said no, it still feel like yesterday. We have planned for a get together with my friends on the actual day so we decided to have our anniversary dinner a day early, without the 2 boys. Since we have to get some ingredients are BIG, we decided to have our dinner there.
Silver Spoon Publika, tastefully decorated with some spoons as lighting deco, and various wine rack around the place. Not a big fancy restaurant, and just nice for some small gathering or candlelight dinner.
Cucumber Juice (RM12) and Ginger Tea (RM13), both are pretty refreshing.
Roasted Pumpkin Soup (RM10) is a good starter, oven roasted pumpkin puree blended in vegetable stock. It might be slightly salty for some but I find it just nice, and a nice start for dinner.
Linguine Alfredo (RM26), a creamy pasta cooked with turkey toast, grilled Portobello mushroom and poached egg. The crème is not too overwhelming and just alright, the poached egg and grilled Portobello mushroom is just perfect topping.
There’s lots more selection of pasta too, but the Alfredo Linguine is good for a creamy pasta lover like me.
Salmon Teriyaki Pizza (RM30) is special in it’s own way, with bamboo charcoal pizza base with cream cheese sauce, topped with teriyaki salmon, wasabi sauce, onion and rocket salad.
Each slices have a piece of salmon which is just great, while the bamboo charcoal base and wasabi sauce added a new dimension to the pizza’s taste. It’s quite a new experience tasting something Italian fusing with Japanese ingredients. Do take note though that the pizza is equivalent to a large pizza, hence in order to make room for dessert, we have no choice but to pack some home.
Silver Spoon’s Signature Tiramisu (RM15), was overall a great dessert and I can’t remember when was the last time I tasted such delicious dessert. Kahlua coffee liqueur and cognac infused mascarpone cheese with espresso and sponge finger, great after a great meal to be share with your loved ones.
Not the best photo but it’s the only one. Dinner was great despite quite a number of reviews that mentioned that the food was on the salty side, I’m ok with it. Price wise, it’s affordable and most of the dishes are averagely price and not too expensive and I wouldn’t mind dropping by to try their Lamb Shank and Crème Brulee.
Happy 5th Anniversary to me and May!

There’s nothing much to see at Publika, but that’s a good thing because it meant that the place wouldn’t be as crowded as the rest of the shopping malls in the Klang Valley come the weekends, and the dozens of eateries here meant that there’s always something new to try, like the Red Bean Bag Café.
There’s a choice of al fresco dining outside the café, or you can opt to sit inside where it’s air conditioned. We opted for al-fresco as it’s easy to maneuver Kendric’s stroller around. Do note that comes lunch time, the place will probably be full to the brim, so better to head there early if you plan to dine during weekends.
We were presented with the menu, which is pretty special being glued to a cardboard and here’s a look at their Breakfast selections.
Coffee Art on our Cappuccino (RM9) and Latte (RM9), while I do find the coffee here just average.
Skyscraper (RM17), basically a stacks of fluffy pancakes drizzled with maple syrup and chocolate sauce, with caramelized bananas and assorted fruits. Kayden likes to eat pancakes so it’s a must order for us. I like the caramelized bananas as it adds a distinctive flavour to the pancakes, but otherwise the pancake is just like any normal pancakes.
RBB’s Egg Atlantic (RM18) which I ordered is pretty special. Served with poached eggs with hollandaise sauce, spinach, mushroom, and of course smoked salmon on top of two fluffy French toast bread. The portion could be consider small, perfect for small eaters. I particular like the fluffy French toast because it’s rather special to go with the poached eggs and salmon. Wouldn’t mind to go for a 2nd serving for me.
The Awesome Breakfast Fry Up (RM22) is the one to go if you’re up for a hearty meal. You can select the choices of eggs, sausages and either bacon/ham to go with baked beans, hash brown, grilled mushrooms, zucchinis and tomatoes with 2 slices of bread. Despite the name, it’s not as awesome as the selection of sausages and bacons are pretty normal, so all in all it’s just average. Perhaps something else from the menu will be a better choice, and of course if compare to other places like Antipodean, Jarrod & Rawlin’s or Blue Cow Café.
Despite all the hype about the Red Bean Bag Café, I thought the food was ok and of course if I really want a hearty breakfast, I can always go to the rest of the places mention above. Maybe the food during dinner time would be better, this I’m not sure.

It’s been close to 4 months since my last post, and my condition has somehow impacted what I want to do with this blog.
2 years back, I’ve been diagnosed with a certain condition on my heart which makes it beating irregularly and there’s a few alternatives, it’s either I live with it with medications, or I can perform an ablation to the heart to kill the tissue that’s generating the extra beats. Back then, I opt to just take the medication because May’s still pregnant with Kendric and I don’t want to do anything major before that, so I only decided to go with the procedure last June. When I was already in the Procedure Room, laying down on the table, the doctor decided to not go ahead with the procedure since my irregular heart beat too irregular for them to do the procedure, hence I was sent to do an MRI to make sure that I don’t have any underlying heart condition that resulted in the extra beats.
Report came out a few weeks after that and it shows that my heart is normal, hence we set another date for the procedure, and this time it’s in November. The procedure involves the doctor puncturing the main vein on my groin, insert a catheter all the way in to the inner chambers of the heart and then mapping out the heart before determining the place where the extra beats is coming from. As it turns out, the beats is not that easy to find, hence the procedure was consider unsuccessful. I was to continue with my medication and my checkup with the cardiologist. Although I thought that my condition improved, but in actual fact, it doesn’t.
Beginning of 2013, I could feel that the condition has somehow impact my quality of life, being lightheaded almost all the time that each evening when I was at home, I have to lie down because I kept feeling like I’m going to faint. The medication given was not helping, and I couldn’t even spend time with my 2 boys, and I felt devastated. It’s their growing years and what they lack is a dad who can spend time playing with them, because what I do is just worrying if I would just collapsed and that’s it.
With this existing condition, I’ve visited the ER at IJN just to check if what I could do, which in that case, I was told to either admit to the hospital so that they could monitor my condition or just go on until my next appointment in middle of June, which then they try to schedule a earlier appointment after hearing what I’ve been through. June came and we went to see my cardiologist which she then schedule another procedure with a different kind of equipment and the date would be July 11th. I’m born a pessimist, hence I’ve had a bad feeling that the procedure might not be successful this time around as well but secretly hoping that it will do good.
End June while I was driving home after work on a Sunday afternoon, suddenly I felt my whole right arm goes numb, and felt that I’m out of breath and again, like I’m going to faint. Although that didn’t happened, it left a pretty horrifying experience and after that, I’m really looking forward for the procedure in July.
Come 11th July, I was whisked to the same procedure room again but midway before starting the procedure, the doctors decided to move me to a different room with a more hi-tech machine. The procedure starts slightly after lunch time, and I was given local anesthetic in the groin region where they will puncture to insert the catheter, but the hole is slightly bigger as they need to insert in both the artery and vein this time around. I will left out the nitty-gritty details and the doctor managed to laser the part which resulted in the haywire beating of my heart, while there’s another spot which they can’t do it because the originating point is too deep into the wall of the heart. The procedure is consider a success. A lot of friends asked me if the procedure hurts, it only hurts when they try to sew back the puncture, otherwise the laser part is not. I stayed another night with May accompanying me and after that I was discharged the very next day. A very big thanks to Shireen, Anderson and Pat who dropped by to visit me while I was there.
The next few days after the procedure, I was hit really bad with gout attack (because of me staying in bed for more than 12 hours after the procedure) and couldn’t even walk. I went to the GP 3 times, and it was only the 3rd time with a jab and medication that the pain gradually went away. Managed to celebrate my birthday with the gang that week, which I’m thankful to everyone who made it.
It’s almost a month after the procedure, and I’m doing great. May noticed that too since I managed to carry Kendric around 1U or MidValley for the past weekend, something which I have not been able to do for longer period of time before the procedure. I still feel lighthead at times but it’s not as bad as before, hence I really hope that the extra beat that the doctor can’t do anything about will not affect me that much.
I think it’s enough talking about the past as I hope this episode is behind me now, and I’m eager to kick start back this blog in full force! Till then…
If you’re itching for a dose of Banana Leaf Rice in Subang Jaya, look no further that Abirami.
When I had my off day 2 weeks back, I drop by Subang Jaya to get some stuffs and initially I wanted to head over to the food court near Sunway College for their Nasi Lemak but decided otherwise since I need to wait for the shop to open so I decided to eat lunch at Abirami instead. The first time I was here was many years ago back in my Amex days and I vaguely remember that the Banana Leaf rice was ok, being hungry and all I quickly seated down and order a portion of banana leaf rice.
The waiter was quick to serve it with rice, assorted vegetables and curry gravy!
Never really know what is this, but I assumed that it’s Fried Bittergourd? Crunchy and always a great supplementary for the meal.
Not to miss out, cucumbers and potatoes.
I would like to order more but since I’m the only one eating, I ordered just the Chicken Masala which is pretty good. The dry gravy is deliciously spicy, but prepare for some booby trap (star anise!). You can also opt for a lot of other dishes like fried fishes and all and the selection of dishes is pretty good too.
It’s always nice to find a good place to have a good meal of banana leaf rice and Abirami certainly is one of those places that I wouldn’t mind dropping by again when I’m around that area.
The price is pretty reasonable, RM5.50 for a serving of rice and RM5 for the Chicken Masala.
