Tsui Wah Restaurant 翠華

Wan tan - I doubt these are really good, it was soft and it breaks apart. Not properly in tact but I guess it's fine for char chan teng quality.

A friend was craving for borscht soup - it's so different from the version we get in Klang Valley where it's just downright diluted. This was just a random shop we went and we liked it already - flavourful, thick, and it's actual soup! Nevertheless, I think I love Russian bosrcht soup more....

Char chan teng's must have - toasts!

We always watch TVB dramas where they would order truffle with scrambled eggs for breakfast - so here we are, truffle with scrambled eggs served with toasts!

It's right at Lan Kwai Fong - what a strategic place where people can grab some bites after drinking.

Yung Kee 鏞記酒家

Century Egg (HKD72)

In HK, it's a must to have century egg. It's somewhat different from what we get back home where the yolk area is usually harden up. It's so bad for cholesterol, but bad food are usually the best food!!!

P/S: The yolk totally melts in the mouth omg....

Pork Belly served with Pine Nuts (HKD250)

We came just for the roast goose. Initially, we were supposed to dine at Yat Lok but they ran out of goose for 6 pax. Yung Kee was able to, hence we ended up here. We thought we should try other dishes too - so we opted for the pork belly. We were really fortunate to have ordered this as it was probably the last few portions.

This pork belly was perfectly braised, not too soft where the fats and meat are all still intact, yet soft enough to melt in the mouth!! I don't usually take fats but I ate the entire piece! We wanted to add another portion but too bad they ran out of it. To be honest, it's definitely pricey for such a small portion - size is no bigger than an Iphone 6s, but not in terms of thickness.

Tofu with Mushrooms topped with shrimp roe (HKD170)

This looks like a bland plate of brown tasteless tofu but don't judge the dish just by one picture. The tofu is braised and topped with generous amount of shrimp roe which gave a hint of seafood taste so it's definitely more interesting....

Vegetable (HKD150)

It's wonderful that they actually make an effort to decorate the food...

Half Goose (HKD300)

We waited close to 45 minutes for the goose... It was the "main" dish for the night and obviously we had really high expectations. All of us thought that goose are usually larger and fatter, Yung Kee's version came slightly smaller than we thought. 

Their roast goose is something so different - it has a huge stuffing in the middle and has lots of beans with it. Skin is not as crispy as expected. Nevertheless, we enjoyed the goose - we thought it's nice to have but it probably isn't the best in HK.

Here's the damage which I can barely read half of it. I wonder if we've been charged correctly hmm!

Likes: Good choices of Cantonese food.. Not bad goose (better than the ones we get out of HK but I'm sure there are better)
Dislikes: A little overpriced....

Fahrenheit Ресторан Фаренгейт

It was our last meal at Moscow and we went for something more casual. This street has plenty of other choices too; we have also tried Cafe Pushkin & Turandot, posh choices where dress code is mandatory.

Fahrenheit's concept is much more fun and colourful.

Luckily they are willing to start earlier by 15 minutes for us as we had to rush to the airport right after the meal...

We had a 4 course meal and started off with salad.

Minestrone soup

Beef Stroganoff - Finally got to try this as the tour guide repeated this so many times that we have to try. My verdict? I thought it wasn't my kind of food - the beef was definitely too chewy for me, sleeping on a bed of mashies. I didn't think it was bad, I just wouldn't order it again.

Some lemon cake to end the meal. I swear 4 courses for lunch is way too heavy!


Likes: Comfortable, casual and fun dining. Good selection of choices in the menu.
Dislikes: N/A

Naughty Nuri's

Pork Ribs (RM49)

I can't think of anywhere else in Klang Valley to satisfy my pork ribs cravings - I've tried various other places but honestly speaking my favourite is still Nuri's. I know people tend to compare this to Bali's version, but hey, I've tried Ubud's version too and I found myself enjoying Malaysia's version more. When I first had Nuri's in KL, I love it already even before trying the original in Ubud.

The sauce tastes almost the same as Bali's and the meat falls off the bone, unlike the one in Ubud. At least what we had in Bali did not fall off the bones... KL's ribs were much more tender as compared to the version in Ubud where it was a little overcooked. Notice the layer of glaze after grilling? We did not get the same glaze in Ubud, hence, the meat is tad bit dry. 

So why travel all the way to Ubud when you can have it in KL?! On a side note, their pork is imported all the way from Spain... Even better!

Only in Live Centre, you can satisfy your alcoholic friends with Flaming Lambo Chicken for only RM42!!! It gives a really nice aroma to the grilled chicken, so it's fit for non-alcoholic friends too don't worry. They won't get drunk from it...

The actual item looks just like what we see in photos!!

The chicken is served right on your table and *drumrollsss* please get ready your phones with Boomerang, Instagram, Snapchat, Instastory!! You only get 3-4 seconds of it so don't miss it!

The size of the chicken is not too huge so it's good for sharing. There's a chunk of stuffing in the chicken which makes it smells so good...

This is not to be missed - mee goreng with siu yuk!! (RM25)

Nuri's Punch is the latest addition to the menu. For RM28.80 you get a whole jug to share, or you can choose not to share... 

Mojito is boring without Asam Boi... Try their signature Asam Boi Mojito for only RM29... Well this is the only drink I normally would order whenever I visit Nuri's... It is dangerously addictive!!

P/S: Take a quick sip before the ice melts!!

I'm quite confused with their promotions and I've finally got an answer. You may see a different menu and promotion in every outlet. I went around searching about Nuri's Dulang lunch but I never got a proper answer from the search. They do it from time to time and only in specific branches. As of today, they have the Dulang Lunch only at Life Centre during lunch hours. The reason I wanted to know is because there isn't any place in Klang Valley that could satisfy my Balinese Nasi Campur cravings. There you go, now you know there's one in the heart of KL!

Bikini

This restaurant is still considered fairly new in Bali. It's in Seminyak and it's just across from Seminyak Square.

Bloodless Martini (IDR120k)

This is the perfect drink to start off - it's light, hint of fresh tomato juice and chilli. The perfect combination as it is very refreshing and opens up appetite.

Old Nutcracker (IDR130k)

For somebody who likes a man drink...

Hot Lips, Chocolate Kiss (IDR120k)

The beautiful drink where it's possibly the most Instagram/picture worthy..

Tea Merchant (IDR120k)

Gin based tea cocktail.. A very refreshing touch.

East Side (IDR120k)

This is rather on the light side - but in terms of refreshing I would say it's one of the best among all. Elderflower and cucumber creates a very subtle and mild element.

Bikini Island Iced Tea (IDR130k)

One of the most interesting Long Island Ice Tea I've ever had - possibly one of the best!! They don't use coke at all!! It's nice, fruity and light, so much so that you don't even feel like you're drinking something so heavy. You only need 2 glasses to feel the kick (some people may even feel it after 1!). I thought it was the strongest among all of the cocktails I've tried.

Oyster Cracker (IDR64k)

I felt this was my least favourite of all... It's beautiful, nicely presented, but I taste no oyster at all. It was just a regular cracker.

Foie Gras Cigar (IDR60k each)

On the contrary, this was my favourite for the night. It's so artsy fartsy, picture worthy, and boy I could really taste foie gras! 

Empanada (IDR80k each)

Wagyu rendang empanadas, I honestly could not tell what type of beef I'm having - the spices are too strong it's basically just beef. I would give this a skip, it's too average.

Baby Corn (IDR40k)

This breaded corn is simple but the taste of corn was stronger than I thought! Very crunchy outside and soft inside...

Ceviche (IDR100k)

This is one interesting ceviche that uses sambal. The white "gelato" like figure is actually chilli ice. It's not spicy but gives a nice cold chilli aroma on your tongue.

Cream Corn (IDR60k)

This is really confusing - the puffed pork skin is fluffy like cake, the corn and bacon is just buttery. It feel like a fusion sweet and savoury dish.

Popcorn Chicken (IDR110k)

This popcorn chicken is mindblowingly good! Popcorn chicken must've been coated with honey and boy the mayo that comes with it... Similar to sciracha mayo (or maybe it is?).

Chocolate Fondant (95k)

This takes about 20 minutes - order in advance just before your meal ends. The cake is soft and fluffy, unlike the usual fondant you normally have where there is a layer of crustiness. 


Likes: Most of the food we had were amazing, cocktails are even better! Really love the ambience, cocktails and staffs over here. Will definitely return to try other food!
Dislikes: Hits and misses, just won't order some of the items again. Some may find it to be a bit too pricey for Balinese standards, which is true.
