Apgujeong Korean BBQ@Solaris Mont Kiara KL.

What I like about Apgujeong Korean BBQ is their refillable and evolving
 banchans (rotational basis)- eight to ten different types of appetizing banchans
 and fresh lettuce.

As for their mains I usually order marinated chicken and pork shoulder 
(sometimes pork belly or pork neck)

For sides maybe a jjigae, japchae, bibimbap,bossom or a pork belly fried with
 kimchi and white tofu.

 Many of our birthdays are celebrated here.                                                               

Friendly staff, good service and affordable.                                                                   

Old people friendly, no need to climb stairs.

Ample parking.

Restaurant Kong Sai @Paramount Garden, PJ.

Whenever I crave for poached chicken , Restaurant Kong Sai 
comes to mind, always a good choice.

A no frills place for home cooked styled dishes like omelette, double
boiled soups, stir fried vegetables, steamed fish, minced pork,
spring onion stuffed tofu puff.........etc

My personal two favorite dishes are poached chicken which is 
very consistent -smooth, tender and well muscled with a dip that
contains chopped spring onion,ginger, oil and soy sauce that
compliments the chicken so well.

The pork ribs and potato is another signature dish - so thick,creamy
and not too spicy -best with white rice.  

Location : 39, Jalan 20/22,
Paramount Garden,
Petaling Jaya.

Kee Hiong Bak Kut Teh @ SS2.

Bak Kut Teh is different cuts of pork cooked in a pot of herbal
concoction plus some secret ingredients for hours.

A tea pot of hot Chinese Pu'er tea is a must - to wash off those fats.

Kee Hiong Bak Kut Teh has more options compared to others-
dry BKT with chillies and okra,  steamed fish, braised soy sheet,
golden needle mushroom and different types of blanched vegetables.

If you're hungry BKT is the quickest meal to be savored - affordable,
and wholesome meal gets to be served within minutes.

The pork ribs soup is rather robust, dark and too herbal.

Overall a contented tummy.

Imperial Rama is an award winning restaurant - Thai and Oriental cuisine.

It has a nice and elegant decor with limited seating, so reservation is a must.

given F&B vouchers to eat in selected restaurants in Genting.

 We selected to eat here because of it's good and tasty food, consistently  
cooked to perfection -a real gourmet experience.

Service is attentive.

Clay pot pork ribs (a  bit coarse) with julienne ginger, garlic and chillies - too salty.

Goji King @Solaris Mont Kiara.

Solaris Mont Kiara is a treasure troves for Korean BBQ restaurants.

So much choices but my personal favorite is Apgujeong.

This area caters to a wide range of diners especially the Koreans.

Goji King's banchan is too limited, cheese is their selling point here.

Grilled meat on a steel plate with side groove over a charcoal fire.

The melted cheese with corn on a sizzling hot plate is addictive !
Mixing and rolling the mini rice sealbap was fun.
Overall an average meal.

Dian Huo Xin Wo @Kelana Jaya.

A small restaurant with retro decor that brings back memories of yesterdays.

The mosquitoes were quite a nuisance but the good food made up for it.

Serving of fresh in house made ingredients is what makes me, kept coming back 
for more. 

Quite good choices of soup bases - i went for the big bone soup served 
with radish, dates and corn.

The selected ingredients are all served in dim sum basket.

There are many varieties of sauces to go with the cooked food.  

Overall i like it but a bit expensive.

No Name Claypot Chicken Rice @ Jalan Othman, PJ Old Town.

This clay pot chicken rice has no name, located opposite the wet 
market in PJ Old Town.

 The chicken are well marinated and i opt out the Chinese sausage
and salted fish.

The dark sauce was fragrant when mixed up in the rice and chicken -
with a burnt rice crust on it's side and bottom of the pot.

Served piping hot but they took the lid away instead of leaving it to
cover the unfinished rice.

We ordered a blanched lettuce with oyster sauce to go with it.

Overall a good meal  but a tad oily.


 Location: opposite the Petaling Jaya Old Town wet market.
