Naughty Nuri's

Bored of Chinese food? Haven't had your Yee Sang fix? Need more? Last minute reservations?

At Nuri's, for just RM69 (portion is good for 3-4 pax), you get a whole plate of freshly prepared Yee Sang. The ingredients are made from scratch with an exception of the crackers; it is by far the most traditional one I've had - and not in a Chinese restaurant!

I'm quite fussy when it comes to Yee Sang - if it's not freshly made, chances are one bite and that is it.

For those who got bored of traditional style Yee Sang, try their Iberico flavour. Nuri's are very good with their pork so it is definitely a safe choice.

And still can't get enough of pork yet?

Signature pork salad will save the day. Have some of those crispy siew yuk and please don't forget your fruits and vegetables!

This is possibly the only place in Klang Valley to get authentic Satay Lilit Balinese style - made with pork!! Most places in Klang Valley are either Halal or they don't serve this at all. It was my first time having it and I found it to be one of the closest to the ones I have had in Bali, now I know where to get my Balinese fix...

One cannot leave Nuri's without having their signature pork ribs.

Shelley Yu's

You know how new establishments are trying very hard to squeeze every cent out of their customer? This is just one of it.... They brand themselves as local eats, offering cocktails with lots of local influence plants and herbs.

But none of their cocktails are memorable. They were either diluted, lack of alcohol content or just nothing but fruit juice. 

Their drinks are not cheap either, starts from RM30. What's the point of telling people you have plenty of local spices choices but... Your drink is neither here nor there???

Either it comes really tiny glass that will be gone after 6-7 sips and can't taste any alcohol, or a huge glass filled with fruit punch and too much ice. Where is the alcohol again??

Pai Tee (RM22)

Not only the drinks are not on par. Even the food isn't. Ever had pai tee where the hats are just not crispy at all? Yes it's beautiful, but RM22 for 6 pieces of non-crispy, 1 prawn sliced into 6 tiny pieces and placed on the fillings, isn't that pathetic?

Nyonya Chicken Curry (RM28)

This was just really normal, like bulk cooking - remove it from the freezer when somebody orders, heat it up with the microwave, garnish and serve. What is this...

Okra (RM20)

Ikan Goreng Chilli (RM50)

The fish that barely has any meat. It is so very tiny that, it's just unbelievable. The size meant for one pax, seriously for that kind of price it's just ridiculous. If you want to add sambal? You have to pay even more!

Cincalok (RM6)

Same goes to cincalok. PAY.

A meal like this plus a drink each actually came up to RM200++. I don't know which part of the meal is worth that much seriously.... I would rather head to Mum's Place for Peranakan food. This is place just makes you feel good and that is about it - don't bother with the food or drinks, you're just contributing to the concept rather than having proper food.

Likes: Comfortable place but...
Dislikes: Food is not great, expensive and small portion. This place is only selling the concept...

The Tokyo Restaurant

Finally got to try the famous Isetan Lot 10's cheese cake!! They were the ones who made it famous in Klang Valley, practically got some major bakeries/cafe to replicate their burnt cheesecake. 

A slice costs RM18, huge slice with that cream. I swear no other bakeries could copy that spoon of cream. I thought I love the cream more than the cake, what is wrong with me! Nevertheless, the cheesecake is quite heavy so it's good to share with two pax. 

Likes: Love the creaminess, portion is reasonably huge
Dislikes: Nothing

Good Taste Delight 好品味

The place for quick lunch as there are practically no good Chinese food around this area.

This place is actually catered for tourists, you'll notice the number of buses parked outside the shop. The food that they serve the crowd is different for local office crowd.

They basically use lousy frozen chicken so it tastes very off.

But can't really say much to it as it's only RM12ish for a set with rice, egg and soup.

It is the soup that I came here for - the soup is very different from your usual chicken rice shop. The paste in the middle is made out of pounded chicken breast, probably with pepper and salt. It is so fine that it really likes to taufufah!

Soft and fluffy. This soup is really addictive...

Opted for the braised tofu which was alright. 

Likes: Ok for quick lunch, must have the soup!
Dislikes: Don't bother travelling all the way for this, it's really simple food for people around the area, I definitely will not travel for this as the chicken is a waste of time. Can't really complain too much as it's inexpensive and convenient for quick lunch

Coley

Some drinks I had at Coley some time ago. Can't really remember much of it as it wasn't significantly good. But I recalled the experience was okay and yes, I would definitely return for more.

Likes: Simple and small bar
Dislikes: Horrendous parking, almost non-existent, not very friendly bartenders (they were rather cold....), place is a bit too small

Gyukingu Japanese BBQ 牛大王

Salt Beef Tongue (RM34.80)

We've always wanted to visit but never actually made the effort to. It was until one day when they decided to distribute a little discount voucher of 35% so a friend grabbed it and we finally, decided to make our visit.

Saga Wagyu Moriawase (RM265)

This platter is to die for: whatever cuts those are, everything melts in the mouth!

The lady who manages the place, grilled everything for us. It was quite empty as it was still early so she could spend a little more time with us.

Pork Mix Platter (RM35.80)

Try the pork platter as well, if you're still not full. It's just as good as the ones you have in Korean BBQ restaurants, or in fact, much better cuts!

Fried Spinach with Bacon (RM15.90)

After all of those meat, veggie is necessary. I thought this was just normal but boy, never expected those bacon bits to spice up the dish so well!

It's a surprise that they score fairly average on reviews. Unsure why but hey, the beef cuts are all very good and may be a little on the pricey side but at least they don't serve nonsense.

Likes: Good beef, very friendly service (however, this could be different for everyone as the shop was practically empty when we arrived so we had all of their attention to ourselves!)
Dislikes: A little pricey but worth it

Zhao Ji Pork Noodle 兆基猪肉粉

Somewhat light version than what I would usually have. The broth is clear and light, I thought it was good if one not feeling too good. Otherwise it may be too bland for one's usual tastebuds. The portion is pretty huge with generous amount of meat and topped with crispy pork lard. Not my most ideal version but alright for everyday's lunch consumption.

Likes: Light and easy to consume
Dislikes: Parking in this area is horrendous
