A Heavy Cost At Tasteful Cuisine Restaurant, Kepong

A VERY "HEAVY" MEAL...
Heavy in the sense that the meal was very costly!  Very tasty no doubt about that.... but there is this one dish which has been the topic for many days ever since.  LOL...

We had our dinner at Tasty Cuisine Restaurant in Kepong.  The place was very crowded especially it was a weekend.  Reservations need to be made to avoid disappointment.  I was told that a number of dishes were very tasty, so much so the name of the restaurant justifies.  Since the place was crowded, we waited for nearly an hour before our dishes were served....  There are only five of us and we ordered just four dishes dishes for our dinner.....
Koayteow in egg gravy with two giant prawns split into halves... 
Very tasty indeed... Price very steep too... 
For this dish alone, it cost around RM120 or so... 
Ginger fried rice... 
Very fragrant with Wok Hei... 
Lots of shredded ginger as toppings... 
A mixed vegetables consisting of lotus, celery, black fungus and cashew nuts as toppings...
And now... 
The highlight of the dinner.... 
Comes The Fish called Marble Goby
and in Cantonese, it is called "Soon Hock"
Looks like any normal fish, right?
Not big nor small... 
And we were told that this is very costly... 
So I thought it would cost around RM150 perhaps???
However to our astonishment, this fish itself cost RM300!
Both of us almost gaped when the bill came... oowww.....
The dinner above made the wallet very much lighter by RM500 in total!
*gasp*

  2. Wow! you made me feel better d. That day I had a not very big grouper fish for RM120 but of course soon hock is so much more expensive than grouper fish. Must be a shocker when you all read the bill.

  3. Everything looks very tasty. Can see the flesh of the fish, very tender and fresh! So the 2 giant prawns and fish stole the show that night and also helps to lighten the wallet of the one who paid the bill!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
