Cafe Hopping V4 (Klang Valley)

I guess I should have a compilation on the cafes I went to for the past few months. The list is getting longer, and some I couldn't quite remember how they taste like.

Roast and Grind, Section 16 PJ

It was a hidden gem and surrounded by offices. I went there during the weekend morning, there wasn't any crowd at that area. It was rather quiet. I love the hot sandwich, I couldn't remember what I have ordered. But It was awesome.
Highly Recommended!






If I'm not wrong, this is a halal cafe serving good food with affordable price. There is nothing much special about the food, but it was descent, and the price is reasonable, considered cheaper than the ordinary cafes.
Recommended!


This was opened by Pitbull (Mr. Worldwide). It was the first branch in Malaysia. I've tried the burger, I think the patty was a little dry, but overall was not bad though. Would still prefer juicier patty. Perhaps I should try their signature dish next time. 
It was okay...



I hear good reviews from my friends on the restaurant. It was not located the usual F&B area in Publika, but facing the main roads. I tried some of the dishes, and thinking the food was pretty descent. Love their pasta, it was creamy enough.
Recommended!


Wondermama X, Avenue K

The food here was pretty unique. It was a mixture of Western and Asian. Somehow it doesn't taste that weird though. It is pretty much similar with Simply D, which they focus mainly on pastas. But I find Simply D portion was rather small and their taste was pretty  inconsistent, whereas Wondermama is far better but the price is pricier compare to Simply D. And comparing Wondermama with Serai, I would still prefer Serai for fusion food with Malaysian flavour.
It was okay...


Raku Pizza, SS15 Subang Jaya
Sorry I couldn't find their Facebook page. It was same row as McDonalds at SS15 Subang Jaya. They have this thin crust pizza personal size which you can't feel anything after eating, and wanted more. The pizza was good with Japanese flavour. But somehow, I just find it wasn't filling enough for me.
Not Bad...


Favourites Waffle, SS15 Subang Jaya
Few doors away from Raku Pizza, we had our waffles here. Ordered both signature waffle (fruits) and crunchy peanut butter waffle. I personally prefer the peanut butter one. They are using Belgium waffle with generous amount of crunchy peanut butter, and it was tasted heavenly. As for the fruits waffle, I would still prefer the one in Meltz Cafe which I mentioned before in *searching Cafe Hop posts* Ok, no where before, I shall mentioned it here.
Recommended!


Meltz Cafe, SS15 Subang Jaya

Love their salted caramel version of fruit waffle. The waffle is crunchy enough, even though with the ice cream on top of it. It does not soak or make the waffle to become soggy. I'm more of a Belgium waffle fan, but this is too good. I shall have a post on waffle soon... which God knows when.
Highly recommended!


Purple Pasta, Oasis Ara Damansara
I wanted to come here for a cup of purple sugar coffee. They have changed their menu, and do not have the purple sugar. I'm not sure the waitress doesn't understand what I'm trying to say, or they really don't have it anymore. Anyways, they have this very economical RM5 pasta, which I think the price is pretty cheap for a plate of pasta, which is the same price as Little Fat Duck, which I guess I have forgotten to do a review for it as well, shall have a blog post on food trucks as well... God knows when... Anyways, the economical pasta was normal for me only, however the normal-priced pasta was good.
Recommended...


LSC Sandwich, KLCC
The sandwich here is pretty good. I was working around the area, therefore sometimes I just grab and go whenever my schedule is pretty tight on that day. Love the freshness of the sandwich with the ingredients in it. They are usually cold sandwiches. But I hope the price can be slightly cheaper, as I think it should not cost that much.
It was okay...


FIQs Gastronomy, SS19 Subang Jaya
Another hidden gem in Subang area. I found out this place is where the turn in Federal Highway from KL to Subang when I was heading back home. Then, one day I asked my friend to join me to have dinner here. You need to pass through the guard house to go to this shop. And I think the food here is really good and flavourful. I don't mind to come back here again.
Highly Recommended!


Flingstones Cafe, SS15 Subang Jaya
The 'chu yao char' angel hair was so damn awesome! Love love love! The portion was rather small though. I wish the portion can be slightly bigger than it is. And the matcha latte was pretty descent too. Just that for this area, to look for a car park space, it was a mission #ss15problem
Highly Recommended!


TBC Cafe, Kota Kemuning

Came here for a brunch and it was around the neighbourhood. Personally I think there is nothing special about this cafe. But if you are around the neighbourhood, feel free to stop by, as their food was pretty good and filling too.
It was okay...


Encore Patisserie, Taman Bukit Desa

The tarts was superb! Awesome! Especially on the cheese tarts series. I couldn't describe how delicious they are. The coffee was normal for me, but the pastries are just so damn awesome!
Highly recommended!


Yellow Brick Road, Jalan Batai

I think the food here was pretty awesome. Had their egg benedict kinda menu (have forgotten the exact name for it). It was a little salty but overall was really good. It was poached egg with salmon and rosti. The coffee was pretty awesome too. Mind you, this place is really good for picture taking. I had lots!
Recommended!


The Grumpy Cyclist, TTDI

It was a concept cafe, correct me if I'm wrong. But I came here for food and coffee, I find it was ok for me. It doesn't really impressed me much though.
It was okay...


Lorem Ipsum, Damansara Heights
Not sure is it because I have high expectations about this cafe. When I came here, everyone is like working on something, and only my friend and I were came here to chill, ,we felt kinda odd. It was just okay for us.
It was okay...


IsMe Beauty and Cafe, Nu Sentral
I have yet try their food, but I wanted to as their food looks promising. I've tried their signature coffee. If you like something milky, it was really good for you. I love it so much. They have a few branches though. Not to forget, their coffee art was so damn cute!
Highly recommended!


Sangkaya, Damansara Uptown
There was a trend on the coconut ice-cream, and now still is. My opinion on Sangkaya ice-cream is pretty awesome, but of course you can't beat the one in Bangkok. That was still the best. If you have tried the coconut milkshake in Melacca before, you don't think this is good. As the coconut milkshake in Melacca was so much better.
It was okay...


Jaslyn Cakes, Bangsar
One word, so damn good! Serious love for their cakes. I will buy for anyone's birthday if I'm the one who in charge of the cake part. And hopefully I'm not lazy to drive all the way here to get a cake.
Highly Recommended!


Naughty Babe Dirty Duck, Bangsar/Sri Hartamas

I've tried both Naughty Nuri and Naughty Babe pork ribs. I would prefer Naughty Babe. It was much flavourful, portion was bigger, the queue was shorter. Both were good, but Naughty Babe was better I must say.
Highly recommended!


Okonomi, Publika
The food was here pretty good. The signature dish was the matcha lava cake. If you are a green tea lover, you would love it. I will not come here on purpose, just to enjoy the food here. The food was pretty good, but there are better Japanese restaurants out there.
Recommended!


103 Coffee Workshop, Sri Petaling
It was crowded and packed. I'm not sure is it because this shop is in trend now or what. But the food here seems pretty normal. Nothing much to rave about. It was good but normal. The rose latte was good too, but I would still prefer After Black.
Recommended!


The Porcupine Place, Setiawalk Puchong
The food here was descent, coffee was okay too. Nothing much to write about here.
It was okay...


Good Friends Cafe, SS15 Subang Jaya


I like the place here. The food was pretty descent and the place is spacious enough for their customers, the coffee was good too. Furthermore, the price is quite reasonable.
Highly recommended!


Grandeur Gallery Cafe, Kota Kemuning
The place here is pretty relax where you can chill with your friends. The food here was pretty good too, so does the coffee.
Recommended!


Signature At The Roof, Bandar Utama
I was not sure about dinner as I have not try their dinner before, but the brunch was awesome! We ordered different dishes, and all taste real good! Moreover, their service is good as well, just that they have limited drinks that time, many were sold out?
Highly Recommended!

CNY 2015: Tokyo Part V (Final)

Yay! Finally doing the final post for my Tokyo trip after 2 months, and I'm like so ready for my next trip next week. Woo-Hoo! HOLIDAY! Who doesn't love holidays?

Anyways... Let's talk about my Japan trip. So these are in my itinerary for the last few days I spent in Japan.

Early morning, we went to this office building in mid town Tokyo to have a full view of the Tokyo city. There are many places you can have a good view of Tokyo city. It really depends on the weather. So I went to the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Building. There's tower A and B and it's interconnected. The Japanese called this tax building as the government spent a lot to build this, but to me, if you compare to where I came from, this is nothing. :P



Tokyo City View

There are many stalls like this while you were walking on the road, but not everywhere, only the cities. There are pretty delicious.


My friend recommended me this cookie store from New Zealand. She made me want to go to this cookie store so badly if I happen to travel to NZ anytime soon.


One of the affordable restaurants in Japan, but without a good air van-dilation. It made us smell so bad after eating. But this food is no joke.


The next day, we went to this Tokyo Station where there are so much shopping and also food in the station itself. I really can spend a whole day here. It is like another mall to me, instead of station. #impressive


Then we walked to Imperial Palace. First thing, it rained. We were freezing in the rain without umbrella. I did not bring my umbrella for this trip and we wanted to save money, so we use our hat to cover ourselves. We knew it gonna rain before we step out from our apartment, and we were prepared, as we have studied the weather forecast.



We looked happy but actually we are not. We wanted to leave this place so badly. It was freaking cold...


Ok, we came so far... Guess what. We couldn't enter the palace. wtf. I didn't research on this, as I'm so lazy to do so already. So just take a quick pic and leave.


Then go to Honda showroom where they have this Eco project they are doing and they give the plant out for free. I wanted to get one to bring home, but I figured for awhile, I got a overloaded luggage. So ended up just buying Asimo plushie.


Latest version of Asimo


I always bring my parents to have Tonkatsu nearby my place, and somehow there is this Tonkatsu nearby the train station. We were starving and freezing. It was just a normal shop, but it taste real good. Similar to the popular Tonkatsu shop in KL.


We saw from TripAdvisor that there's this highly rave Robot Restaurant in Shinjuku which is quite near to the Red Light District. They claimed that this is a must-go place. When I ask my friend from Japan, she has no idea about this restaurant at all. And a guy friend of mine told me, you should visit this place too


I don't find it interesting at all, and will never come back. Wasting my money. It is just a normal robot show, and the place is so small. The robots can hardly move around. The thing is, they were using the controller to control the robot moving from point A to point B, that's all. Not to forget, sexy girls were dancing around. That's about it.




They say, if there's a long queue in Japan, just queue. So I saw this long queue for cheese tart and it smell so damn good from far. And it was the BEST cheese tart I've ever tried in my entire life!

I will buy a dozen every time I come to this station (forgot which station selling this already).


I couldn't describe how blessed I am to have Mount Fuji in front of me. It was snowing heavily the night before, and we couldn't get up to the 5th station. And this was the best place we can have a great view of Mt Fuji.

Mt Fuji area has lesser public transport. Joining the local ground tour is more recommended.

Happy enjoying the pictures. You're welcome.






Then, took the cable car to the nearby area where black eggs are formed. Black eggs are just normal eggs. But because they are using hot spring water to boil the eggs, and the water was consist of sulfur. That's how black eggs were formed.









Then, we adjourned to a place nearby called Hakone. To be honest, nothing here AT ALL. But it is a place to relax. To be on the cruise and just enjoy the scenery. 






Not to forget to mention, they have this Starbucks drink selling in 7-Eleven. I still think the one selling in Starbucks store taste better, because it was freshly brewed. But this is more economical and you can bring them everywhere.

The Sakura Latte was the limited edition specially made for Sakura season.


That's about it for my Tokyo trip. And the damage I got from Tokyo... which I'm currently still in recovery mode.





xoxo
