Ah Park Teo Chew Porridge @ Paramount Garden.

After a weekend of sumptuous food, we need to "de-tox" or when we are not felling well, eating porridge is the answer.

Eating porridge in a group is so appetizing and fun.

More dishes are ordered and  everyone get to eat a bit of everything.

Ah Park Teo Chew Porridge have all the home cooked types of dishes to entice us.

Parking is bearable.

Fried Cai Poh (preserved salted radish) with egg- finely chopped - well fried-Rm4/

Salty Chicken Drumstick-not as salty as it's name implies-tender and served with thinly sliced cucumber-Rm8.90/

Braised Chicken (whole leg) and Braised  pig big intsestines-some of us are put off with the smell of the intestines-the tender chicken was most welcome in taste and the star anise/cinnamon are not overpowering-Rm8.90.

Steamed minced pork/cai poh with salted Duck's egg-Rm6/

Coi Hiong Tofu-deep fried tofu are crispy on the outside and smooth on the inside-topped with finely chopped chillies and dried shrimps-Rm8/

Blanched  Choy Sam-green and stemmy-Rm6/

Deep fried Anchovies with roasted peanuts-my fave- goes well with porridge-Rm3/

Porridge with orange and purple sweet potato-Rm2/bowl.

Total bill:Rm57/

Chilis@Citta Mall.

 Guest Blog Post by Michelle.

My grandmother do not like to eat Western food except for Betty's Midwest Kitchen (for their porky dishes).

This weekend-when she had gone to Singapore for holidays.

My family and I took the opportunity to eat out @ Chilis @ Citta Mall.

A mall with more restaurants than other businesses.

Parking is free.

Triple Dipper-a combination of three appetizers-generous portions of chicken crispers (well and thickly battered )-wings over buffalo (would be better without the squeeze of lemon ) and South western eggrolls (crispy )-three stalks of celery with three types of sauces for dipping-Rm29.95/

Cajun Club Sandwich-a traditional club sandwich with a kick-stacked high with smoked lean chicken meat-topped with beef bacon, cheddar and Swiss cheese, jalapenos, lettuce and tomatoes plus French fries-garlicky toast-Rm27.95/

Chicken Club Tacos-grilled mesquite chicken breast with ancho-chile ranch dressing, diced tomatoes, mixed cheese and finely chopped fresh lettuce plus guacamole and served with rice and black beans (not a good combination for me )-Rm25.95/

Monterey Chicken-well marinated grilled chicken breast with BBQ sauce, beef bacon, cheese and lots of diced tomatoes-served with mashed potatoes with black pepper gravy and blanched broccoli-Rm28.95/

 Total bill:Rm170/
Location:G-01 & G-02, Ground Floor,

Pan Heong Restoran.

My niece, Mun came to our house for a sleepover with a planned day trip to Bentong, the next day.

Next we met up with my daughter Mindy and her hubby Sam@ Pan Heong Restoran for lunch.

Pan Heong is a bustling restaurant with a coffee shop feel.

 As no reservations is allowed, we waited awhile and were unlucky to get a number 24 table, right besides the aisle where food are delivered up and down.

But the good, tasty and affordable food made up for all the jostling and scrapping of neighboring chairs

Parking is bearable.

Sliced meaty Loong Tan fish Porridge-more like Cantonese porridge-smooth and gooey-topped with a sprinkling of white pepper, sesame oil, deep fried shallots and chopped spring onion-would love it better with some coriander leaves-Rm19.00

Stir fried Yau Mak with garlic-fresh with a crunch-Rm9.50/

Deep fried Nam Yee Chicken-well marinated - very fragrant with choice cut of chicken wing and drumstick-Rm15.50/

Deep fried fishpaste stuffed foo chuk (beancurd sheet)-crunchy, crackling and springy-Rm7.20.

Lor Mee with two big sized  river prawns and Choy Sam-the homemade mee was gooey and eggy-the prawn was fresh with lots of roe at the head-must be eaten fast to prevent it from turning soggy-Rm50/

Mee Goreng-mamak style with sliced fish cake, egg, shrimp, Choy Sam and topped with deep fried shallots-a squeeze of the calamansi added a twist of tanginess to the mee-Rm 6.50/

Kow Yok mee hoon with Choy Sam-chunky braised pork belly and well marinated with just the right wetness to hold the mee hoon-my favorite-Rm17.00/

Total bill:Rm132/
