Saravanaa Bhavan@Masjid India, KL

Still remember the first time our friend brought us here, I had the nicest dosai I have ever eaten, it was so nice, crispy, coupled with not the mediocre chutney, simply lovely!!
He gave us a lengthy introduction on this vegetarian restaurant, originated from Chennai, now Saravanaa Bhavan has got more than 30 outlets throughout the world in places like US, UAE, Singapore, Malaysia, UK and Canada. The selling point is food quality and taste as well as the cleanliness of preparation.

This time around, I ordered a paper dosai, and bf ordered vegetarian rice set.

My dosai came with 2 types of chutney, dahl and some curry, lovely!! No comparison with those mediocre dosai at normal mamak restaurant!

His vegetarian set

N also my favourite cauliflower fried

The price is on the higher side as compared to other Indian restaurant, but we concluded that food is really good, in fact, much better than Gopala at Brickfields. If you are a vegetarian, or feel like having Indian vegetarian food, this could be a good choice. They have outlets in Bangsar and PJ as well.

Set Lunch@Canton-i, Sunway Pyramid

The set lunch at Canton-i is quite reasonable and satisfactory. Price at RM58+ the set consists of choice of one dim sum, 2 dishes, choice of rice, porridge or noodles for 2 pax and choice of drinks.
We chose steamed prawn(Ha Gao), fresh prawns with just nice thickness of skin , yummy yummy!

The 2 dishes we had was stir fried french beans and Hong Kong styled fried chicken( was ok, but we preferred the dishes at Dragon-i, their sister company)

But we love the vegetable fruit juice and iced lemon tea, definitely not the diluted and articial one.

Comparatively, among the restaurants choices in shopping mall, this could be quite a reasonably price place with reasonably good food, service and ambiance.

Hee Kee Fried Crab Expert喜記避風塘炒辣蟹@Hong Kong

It was an unforgettable experience dinned at Hee Kee. Not because of the food actually, but the bill! We really paid through our nose, other dishes were ok, I mean quite reasonable, just that the 椒鹽瀨尿蝦 popping mantis prawn with salt was indeed a shock for us!

Guess what, 2 pieces cost us HK360/=
Check this out!!! Nothing special in terms of size, more or less like the one we got in Malaysia actually. However, was thinking of trying the Hong Kong style of cooking. But it was indeed an expensive trial!!! I am cracking my head about the so called market rate, can it be so expensive???

Other dishes were ok, quite reasonable for Hong Kong standard
The Bak Fan Yu 白飯魚@ HK89 for a small portion, but taste good!

Popping Chicken Wings with salt@HK78

And veg@HK68

It would have been a good experience if the mantis prawns was not so pricey, after all, we knew that this place is a bit pricey, being a popular dining place patron by celebrity and all, check out their website for details
Anyway, the price for the mantis prawns was really ridiculous! No next time!!

Lok Yuen@Mong Kok,Kowloon, HK

We were at Hong Kong during the Raya break. The weather was not that pleasant, super duper humid, and raining most of the days. However, this does not stop us from having nice food and "jalan jalan" around Hong Kong.

We went to Lok Yuen@Mong Kong for the famous beef ball!!
Man, it was super good!!
The beef ball is very bouncy and generally, I feel that the beef taste better( very rational opinion)

We also ordered fried fish skin, but this one is not as good as the one I tried before during a steamboat dinner at HK last year.

The rice person got to order his rice to curb the hunger. We ordered satay chicken rice, but the satay sauce is not the same as the one we got in Malaysia, not spicy at all, little sweet, but with stronger peanut taste!

Lok Yuen is a good choice if you love beef balls. Comparatively, a better choice of Cha Chan Teng ( Cafe ) in Hong Kong. Food is quite good and price is reasonable for Hong Kong standard.
They have 4 outlets in Hong Kong, details visit Lok Yuen website at
The one I went was at Bute Street, Mong Kok near to Fa Yuen Street.

Ice blended Celery Soya Bean Drink

I was told that this soya bean drink at this stall taste very good by my 'makan kaki'. We were there one fine day to try the soya bean drink. I am always adventurous to try "new" things, so decided to order this ice blended celery soya bean drink for a change. Hmm, I would say OK, nothing too exceptional, but I love their creativity. They also have other options like mocha soya bean, chocolate soya bean, honeydew soya bean drink etc.

This is the stall located at Ipoh Stadium Food Court ( Near to Simee Noodle Stall)

My ice blended celery soya bean drink

Wow, 'makan kaki' tofu fah, very smooth, and strong bean taste ( not like the Funny Mountain one, already deteriorated so much. Now I feel their soya bean and tofu fah taste sweet only, no "bean" taste.) But this one is Very good!!!

As for the food, 'makan kaki' ordered the Fei Kei Fish Head Noodle ( this is a branch of original Fei Kei at Jalan Seenivesagam), and I ordered the Simee Noodle. I feel Simee yong tau foo stall is rather over-rated, or is the original one at Simee taste better?

Anyway, do drop by to try their soya bean drink at this humble stall at Ipoh Stadium food court!
