Puchong Yong Tau Hu @ Batu 14, Puchong, Selangor

This restaurant is rather popular with non-stop stream of customers going into this shop. What make them so special is the freshness of their yong tau hu preparation and they have variety of food served here other than yong tau hu. Other than that, the yong tau hu size is rather big.

For those who don't quite yong tau foo, they can also have pan mee, paper wrapped chicken and rendang chicken here. If you want something different when it comes to yong tau fu, this is a place to try.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. The yong tau hu is only cooked just before serving. This way, you will get a fresher and better yong tau hu taste. Its succulent and taste of original fish. The soup is delicious and sweet but I don't feel thirsty at all. Probably it make from real ikan bilis (anchovies) rather than MSG stock).
Price:6/10(Moderate. The food shown below priced at MYR26. Each piece of yong tau hu is rather big stuffed with maximum fish paste).

Their soup based yong tau hu is unique with green leafy vegetables. For soup based, they have chili, bitter gourd, ladies finger, dumplings & tauhu.

Looks good rite?

Fried yong tau hu version. They have fried fritter, brinjal and fu chuk for fried version.

Assorted sauce to dip your yong tau hu.

They got special barley with fu chuk (bean curd slice) drink. Thumbs up.

They enjoy good business during lunch time.

Look out for this shop. Located very near to Han Ming Chinese school and it is just opposite Batu 14 Primary school. Enjoy it!

Loong Foong Duck Rice @ Paramount Garden, Petaling Jaya

I know this restaurant from a friend who recommend me to try their duck rice. This restaurant has two businesses. One on seafood while another is on duck rice business. Based on their signboard, it should be their seafood as main business but their duck rice is the best selling item compared to their seafood. Their duck is properly marinated with their own special sauce. If you wish to eat or take away from here, do come early. The place tend to get crowded by 6pm and finished by 8.30pm.

Taste:8/10(Good. The skin is crispy, roasted to perfection golden brown colour & the sauce is good).
Price:6/10(Moderate. Each roasted duck is sold for MYR48.00).

Look out for this signboard. Don't mistaken this place for seafood. They have two section in the shop. One side selling duck rice which the air-condition section is sea food restaurant.

Their duck looks nice and roasted with care.

With good chili sauce.

They fan the duck to make sure its dry before they roast. So that the skin is crispy.

La Bodega @ Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

La Bodega is one of the Kuala Lumpur's tapas institution. Their ambiance surroundings and relaxing environment makes this western food restaurant a favourite place to hang out. At that day, I can't think of where of having light lunch. But thinking about Bangsar, I think it worth trying this restaurant.

Without having what to have in mind, I think I would just try out their breakfast set. Big breakfast set which is not that big at all.

Taste:7/10(Moderate. I would give credit to their coffee & the mushroom on the breakfast set. The coffee is really good and their mushroom is above the par. Other than that, its just normal. The beef bacon is not crispy enough).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. The breakfast set with one coffee & a fruit juice cost MYR40 including taxes).

Cute match box.

Good coffee. Caffe latte.

First they added a large screen when World Cup 2010 football fever at that time. Then there is some sort of festival and market selling many light toy and decoration. Finally now they have reptile exhibition and Snowalk. To enter Snowalk, visitors are required to pay RM25 per entrance. In a country which never had snow, it is a good attraction here especially for the kids. The first time I was here, there is no admission/parking fees for car but now they charged MYR10 per car.
It's more commercialized now compared to when its first started.
