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.
Do you want some of those ribs for FREE? Yes, you're reading it correctly - FREE!!!!

Naughty Nuri’s SS15 Subang Courtyard is hosting the biggest ribs eating event this February 28....

Quickly book your slot before it runs out - for reservation.

Hurry up as LIMITED seats are available and don’t forget to bring your own plate !

Bo.Lan โบ.ลาน

I can't believe this place has been award a star Michelin. For that kind of service, it makes me wonder how did they even rate it in the first place...

Since I was there alone, I ordered a set lunch for myself. I chose the stir fry beef with chillies, basil, served with pork soup.

The beef was horrendous - it felt like I was having leftovers from a steak cut. It was just gooey fat stuff and very little meat. Like someone just did meat carvings and the leftover meat was then used to cook up this dish. The egg was good - but wait did I order beef or egg?

Pork soup was not too bad. Just tasted like some lemongrass soup I had in Vietnam / Cambodia. 

Their service is bad too - every other table got an explanation of their dish except for mine. Mine was deliberately just thrown in my face and they walked off. What is with that attitude? So does that mean solo travellers do not deserve to be treated right?

They can't even do something right for such a simple lunch meal, so obviously I won't trust them for anything more! It's pointless to spend money in a place and leave as an unhappy customer....

10% service charge... It makes you wonder what was the charge for!

Likes: Comfortable place but...
Dislikes: Lousy food, lousy service, table was already ready when I arrived but they purposely made me sit for 20 minutes before ushering me to the table (They did the same with another couple, and I clearly saw that the table was already ready when I sat down! Such lazy liars!). I just cannot brain the fact that they have been award by Michelin reviewers. It makes me wonder how much they paid for that star??? Seriously, they certainly do not deserve it at all.

Hoi Tod Chaw Lae หอยทอดชาวเล

Apparently famous in Thonglor, based on online reviewers. But let me tell you how unreliable the reviews are. If you're planning to travel all the way for this - forget it.

First and foremost, the oysters are placed on the ice. Possibly from morning till evening, it just keeps getting refilled as people orders them. But how long have they been on the ice? Nobody knows. It's basically unfresh oysters.

The Or Ror for THB 150. The unfresh oysters covered with extremely crispy egg.

Is your egg worth that price? Totally no. I could not be bothered to eat the oysters as they were disgustingly unfresh.

Look at how sleazy they let the seafood chill in such a hot weather. Honestly.... Never again. Perhaps I would say go for their pad thai or something simple. Order anything but seafood!!

Likes: Convenient as there are many bars around. Crispy fried egg.
Dislikes: Unfresh seafood, too expensive for such quality food, servers are very lazy with an attitude, extremely unfriendly (Can't expect much either from such places, but it's somewhat unusual as Thai people are usually very friendly. I'm guessing they are either too tired or way too demotivated to work)

Mui Chea Pork Noodle @ Restoran Shangri-La

A bowl of normal pork noodle typically costs around RM6 per bowl. Additional egg would incur another RM1.50-RM2. I first had this and I thought the broth was very flavourful. Perfectly cooked egg that pops too!

I decided to be a bit more adventurous on my second attempt to get their special pork noodle. It has everything - pork slices, minced pork, pork intestines, pork liver, pork meat balls, bean curd skin, Fu Zhou meat balls and fish balls. I thought it was way too much for me - next time I'll get the normal one...

Likes: Love the broth. Coffee shop is very clean and prices are reasonable.
Dislikes: Nothing.

Rung Rueng Pork Noodle รุ่งเรือง

THB 50 for a small bowl of noodle. I couldn't decide so I had both tom yum and clear soup.

I thought it made no difference with the instant noodle I could get off supermarket shelves... Nothing great.

They only added extra pork (minced, innards) and fish (balls and cake)....

If you need a quick noodle fix this place isn't a bad choice, but I will definitely not travel all the way for it since it's just way too ordinary...

Likes: Good portion for small eaters, inexpensive, convenient for those in the neighbourhood, tourist friendly menu
Dislikes: Nothing great if you're travelling far for this place.. Just another bowl of instant noodle

Kingdom Palace Restaurant

This was taken a while back, not during Chinese New Year. It's their version of "Yee Sang" where it's completely not traditional at all. It's just a huge plate of salad served with Kewpie's roasted sesami, topped with soft shell crab.

Soft shell crab and deep fried fish skin. It's just a huge plate of salad to be honest, but everything goes well with roasted sesame. Thank goodness.

Likes: Overall, the food are all generally good. They were all up to expectations, only perhaps the salad yee sang that was a little too innovative - it's nothing more than just a salad. It's great to cater the Petaling Jaya crowd, where you don't have to go all the way to KL for proper Chinese 10 courses kind of dining.
Dislikes: Definitely a little too far for those who lives in KL and there are plenty of other choices in KL too so no point driving all the way here.

Ubereats Bangkok

Ubereats makes our life so much easier. So what if my hotel doesn't want to include breakfast for free - Dancing Duck Noodle it is!

Unfortunately they do not deliver up to your hotel room so you will have to go down to the lobby to wait for your food.
