Ichiriki Tonkatsu Japanese Restaurant @ The Gardens Midvalley, Kuala Lumpur

Ichiriki is a Japanese restaurant specialize in tonkatsu or pork cutlet. They have a few options of affordable tonkatsu set to choose from. I have chosen their unadon kabayaki and tonkatsu gozen set. The pork is the star here, so as long as you focus on cooked food and not the raw stuff, then this is your right restaurant.

Taste:8/10(Good. I like the tonkatsu served with cabbage and noodles. Meat is tender and not dry. The plum sesame sauce suit very well with tonkatsu. The unagi need improvement as it appear a bit overcooked. The chawanmushi is good).
Price:6/10(Moderate. Unadon kabayaki and tonkatsu gozen set at MYR45.00. The set consist on many items: tonkatsu, unagi, fruit, chawanmushi, pickles, cabbage, miso soup, rice, noodles and plum sesame sauce)

Quite huge and affordable lunch meal.

Rich nyonya laksa at Baba Low's @ Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

Baba Low's located quite hidden in housing area of Bangsar and can be considered as hidden gem. If you like nyonya food, here is the place for you. Their food is a mix of local and Chinese flavour. Parking is limited and quite hard to come by especially during lunch time.

Taste:7/10(Moderate. Typical Malaysian food. I found that the nyonya laksa is too spicy and with too much cucumber and rich coconut milk. You can taste the coconut milk richness in this bowl of nyonya laksa. Very generous portion of cockles. The popiah taste rather normal).
Price:6/10(Moderate. A bowl of nyonya laksa at MYR8.00 and popiah with egg skin at MYR5.00. The nyonya laksa is quite compact with ingredients with much fish cakes, cockles, cucumber and tofu).

My meal: nyonya laksa, popiah and barley drink.

Baba Low's famous curry laksa.

Wooden tables and chairs.

The amount of cockles in this dish is overwhelming. I like it anyway.

Popiah with skin using egg. Containing turnip, cucumber, bean sprout, coriander and shredded eggs.

Charcoal fried kuey teow at Kim Lian Kee @The Gardens, Midvalley, Kuala Lumpur

Having hawker food in shopping mall is never a good idea. However, when compared to other outlets here at The Gardens, this place does standout in term of taste, speed and price. Although slightly higher price, you get a decent portion and taste of charcoal fried kuey teow. It a comfort food which will cure your craving for hawker food while shopping.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. I like the dryness of the charcoal fried kuey teow with lard prepared here. Taste really good with wok hei. I guess frying using charcoal will produce higher temperature which will dry out the moisture in kuey teow).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. Charcoal fried kuey teow at MYR13.80 exclude GST and service charge).

Tasty charcoal fried kuey teow.

They are famous for hokkien noodles. However, I would like to try out their other items since I had their hokkien noodles in Lot 10 previously.

Some Hong Kong sawi to cover lack of vegetables on my diet.
