One of a upcoming prominent in Korea that currently is in massive expansion mood in the country, have about 100 outlets across Korea. Not only that, as Chicken Plus finally landed in Malaysia at Sunway Velocity being their first outlet and there will be more to come  as they are aggressively expanding in Malaysia too.

It was election week and while returning to KL and craving for Fried Chicken, then stumble upon this outlet that it is new and running a promotion.

Ways on ordering.

As starter, you are given a mini salad and radish.

The chart of their massive growing outlets in Korea

Ordered their signature to try on.

Love their Ttoboki, as rarely I would order that. Just not a big fan of it when in Malaysia as it is hard to find the right texture, soft and chewy. However, this place is spot on. Love their spicy sauce to my liking as taste just the one that I had in roadside of Dongdaemun. – Recommended (as this was a free item during their opening promo). Carbonara is not too bad too if you like creamy base.

thank god that they have small portion as in 2 pieces. Most of the Korean fried chicken shop serve in half chicken or full therefore cant try much flavour. 2 Pcs Drumstick @ RM 11 (Flavour – Basakan Original) – original Koren Fried Chicken.

Over here we tried 4 of their signature sauce.

Boneless chicken was top of the pick among were the girls fave which I never understand till date as it is easy for them to eat along with their pretty manicure. Boneless Regular @ RM 16 with Hot Shocking Sauce (with special flavor of dried red pepper in soy sauce base)

According to the staff, Creamy Onion was their best seller and we decided to try it out with Wings 8 Pcs @ RM 18. 

Their butter rice is damm good. Just give it a try. Something simple that just pack with flavour.Recommended.

Of course if got a chance will add on cheese for the fried chicken. (RM 19) Their cheese actually taste better than some of other places as it does have a mix unique taste.

Another order we tried with Boneless Chicken Regular @ RM 16 with (Yang-Nyuem) – sweet and spicy sauce.

Dessert we order Mango Bingsu @ RM 23. Their bingsu is the soft snow texture and being greedy, we order the melon bingsu @ RM 26 too.

Melon bingsu just lack of the juicy and sweetness from the fruits ifself. If not, it would be a perfect ending as we understand it from fruits production standpoint.

Find that the food here is not too bad and will definitely return again as the price is quite reasonable. Among the chicken flavours I tried, my personal preference prefer both (Hot Shocking & Yang-Nyuem)

Economy is not doing well yah? Where do you usually find your happy hour joint? Brew House at TTDI is one of a new bar that recently operating in this neighborhood. Pampering us with happy hour promo and hot food to hit on.

This place is also one of my favourite hangout spot as it is also one of a center point for many of my friends.

One of my favourite snack that goes with beer is this Salted Egg Fish Skin with Pork floss @ RM 13.80. Crispy and aromatic yet not too salty. Usually I will have this whole portion myself.

Pizza here never fails as the consistency is there. We had Smoked Duck & Peach Pizza @ RM 18.80. Dough is fresh, soft and quite smooth. Dressing is not too bad.

To share, Porky Platter is not too bad as it is serve in 4 different version. @ RM 25.80 

Bacon Wrapped Pork Meat Ball Braised in Connor’s Stout Sauce @ RM 16.80

missing home cook food. Then turn onto their Braised Pork Belly @ RM 15.80. Turns out to be above my expectation for a bar food quality and this is indeed quite good.

Their Nyonya Pork Ribs Curry @ RM 14.80 does goess well with the beer. As the amount of spice added in just right.

For their weekend Roast special on Sunday, they usually will have different feature and do check out their FB page for their announcement of weekly special. This is a week 5 dish – Flaming Chicken “Hot Chicken” @ RM 50 

Food here is quite consistent compare to other outlet. Hence the occurring return with friends for hang out.

Shopping and walking around Bukit Bintang yet you are tired and looking for a comfy place to chill. One of the most recent place I met up with some friends and enjoying Brasserie Fritz French High Tea Set in Wolo Hotel, Bukit Bintang. Although I am not really a tea set person, however this place do impress as you will be transported into a very quiet calm relaxing ambiance.

BRASSERIE FRITZ is fit into a French inspire concept and this latest dining experience is lead by Christian Bauer and Eddie Chew, the men behind Troika Sky Dining and Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar. They renovated the place that previously was Tour Les Jour.

As you walk in from the main entrance, is Boulangerie Fritz that provides an assortment of freshly baked croissants, pain au chocolat, pastries and pies, savoury and sweet. The wide variety of breads and rolls are baked fresh every day and the Melbourne-based coffee roasters at Victoria coffee company provide the best beans for a morning espresso. Don’t forget to try the Berliners, or the donuts stuffed with sweet fillings like salted caramel, rhubarb and custard or strawberries and cream; they are worth a detour.

high ceiling, with natural lighting from the clear window panels is indeed a place for many people who love to take pictures.

Boulangerie Fritz Tea Sets are colourful and nicely presented that is served daily inbetween 3pm – 6pm only  at RM 55 ++ per pax serve along with a pot of Melbourne Tea Drop tea. 

On the base, it is filled with Sandwiches, Prawn, salted egg cream cheese mayo, Curry Kapitan sandwich,with cilantro mayo, Smoked salmon with dill mayo and croissant cucumber, cream cheese, mint and yogurt.

It is quite interesting to stumble upon so many new changes of F&B brand in Wisma Atria. All just right under one roof. Yole is actually another new Froyo brand that had replace their favourite frozen yogurt brand llaollao, which had ceased operations in the country. Most of the llaollao outlet will be replace to Yole along the way.

Did not know the changes till I am writing this. 

To me it look pretty much the same with just colour and logo changes.

also read that this brand is actually one of a European brand. and found out through this article (click here) . Most of us knows that llaollao comes from Spain and Yole is from France. Currently it had not affected the rights in Malaysia yet.

Well, to me it is quite similiar to their counter part as comes in variety of sizes and toppings.

serve in 3 different sizes for you to choose from and also the toppings are kind same to me. The term in sizes is different from their counterpart.

Since quite full from my lunch, and ordering quite number of items around the area, I just hit on their Baby that comes with 1 topping size to try out and see what is the different.

I think try one of their siganture sauces, biscuti caramel if I remember correctly.

Not too bad. Felt that the texture is not as smooth as Llao Llao and this has slightly more sourness of yogurt base but my friend felt it is the same. Maybe there are no different. I like the dressing more as it is less sweet and more fragrant to my liking.

Food rating 7.5/10 , not too bad for a new brand! -Stamped-

Final day in this island and had quick catch up with friends and was introduce to meet up at Toby’s Estate located in Robertson Quay, Singapore which is just a stone throw away from our hotel.

Read some blogs upon writing this, that this place is famous for their coffee or some even commented that one of the best in the area or town.

Toby’s Estate a Austrailian-style cafe and roaster. Understand that their house blend is a special combination of mixing variety of beans hence you get that strong unique flavour profile also believe this cafe had been operating more than 7 years which I read some blogs way back to 2012.

I guess Saturday is off day for mom’s as dad’s is taking care kids.

Early in the morning for breakie, it is chill to sit outside and enjoy your breakfast. A little bit look alike of Yarra River in Melbourne.

forgot to take picture of menu and the food here is pretty normal. Nothing much to shout about for such presentation. If you are here for a simple breakie then yes.

Eggs benedict with prosciutto

Toby’s French Toast @ SGD 14. Thick toast bread with abit caramelise espresso flavoured bacon and with berries serve as sides. Very simple and direct. Fluffy bread and quite alright. A combination of savoury and sweet.

Egg benedict with salmon

A new term for me which is Gibraltar Latte @ SGD 4.50. I was told it is a very strong coffee and decided to order. My idea is like  Picollo Latte but in double shot. It is indeed very strong. profile coffee is very unique as it smells abit floral but taste is hit the strong on first sip and end in sour end which is quite acidic. Not really my type of coffee.

While Latte @ SGD 5 quite milky that overpowering the coffee taste.

Masala Chai Latte @  SGD 6 here is amazing. Fragrant of spices and milk is well balance- Recommended~

Food here is not that impressive as they are very simple and direct. Taste is not too bad as I believe with the pricing you are able to find better ones around the area. However, Toby’s Estate is regard as one of a authentic Melbourne cafe in the island.

Over here is simple food and coffee (depending on your taste profile) did not really suit my palate. They do have strong crowd and establish since more than 7 years, maybe you could give it a try.

While we have sometime to kill after our brunch before heading to airport, then stumble upon this Sanpoutei Ramen at Orchard Road that mention its origins from Niigata.

Read some reviews before heading in and it seems that Niigata Shoyu Ramen is the outlet specialty. This soup base is also my favourite as it is hard to find nice shoyu base soup rame in KL.

Sanpoutei originates from Niigata which is north of Tokyo since 1967. Their signature broth broth is boiled for six hours using vegetables, chicken, pork bone and 2 types of imported ingredients from Japan which is dried sardine.

Japanese chef at work and he seems to be very particular in every bowl that serve out which is good thing.

seating space here is not huge.

Apparently their ramen noodle is made fresh daily . .

and on my dining, it seems that quite number of Japanese diners are here.

As we are quite full, we just order a bowl to test it out. Always love shoyu base because of the simplicity flavour of it. Love the taste of shoyu base although not so prominent in yet, yet soup base is slightly thicker compare to what I had before and it taste pretty good too,  with hint of sweetness from its cooking broth.

I believe my ramen is slightly over cook as it is quit soft or I expected it to be medium texture and slightly chewy. Or maybe the cooking method in here is meant to be in this texture. Slightly thicker compare to what I had in KL. Love the pork slices chasu as cook to perfection. They torch on the meat and love the light burnt taste, mild oily and texture is just perfect.

Not too bad for a shoyu base ramen.

Chili Crab. Who is into Chili crab? Another signature in Singapore is their famous Chili Crab. I have always been very curious what is the difference between theirs and ours.  My friend brought us to Jumbo Seafood at Dempsey Hill which is quite famous for their Chili crab and Pepper crab.

Quite full house for weekdays as most of the tables are fully book.

They do sell bak kut teh spices too. Tasted once before long time ago as their Bak Kut Teh is = to our pepper pig stomach soup.

seems that this outlet won numerous awards too.

They have 2 seating area, indoor and outdoor.

Starting off with bamboo clams and it is huge. Steam is always the best option to taste the freshness of it, and this is indeed a classic dish. Add on with glass noodle, garlic and special soy sauce is the perfect way to eat this. Freshness of clams is there and simple taste and spot on.

This dish caught my attention the most as this is not suckling piglet or peking duck. This is one of the restaurant signature. This is actually Chicken. Thin cut to make it similiar to suckling pig. It is so soft, and unique in texture. Great stuff.

Braised Homemade Beancurd @ SGD 16 for small

This is their signature. Chili Crab and of course must eat with Man Tao. Actually the taste of it is very similiar to Penang style. This dish is quite near to my mom’s cooking. Thick in sauce, with egg white. Some will have more sourness over spicy and the classic taste is sourness of it must be there.

Love the gravy here as they are slightly thicker, and crab is very fresh. Dipping man tao along is just a perfect combination. The impress part is the flavour is inside out of the crab.

Next signature is their black pepper crab. Mild in black peppery spicy, just nice to keep you going and well coated onto the crab. Flavours of it is inside out too.

Crab size here are big. It is more like XL size if in KL. look at the claws.

We order fried rice to pair with the chili crab. So we do not waste on the gravy.

Another introduction by my friend which is their favourite is this Scallop yam ring. MEdium size @ SGD 27. 6 big juicy fresh scallop wrap in yam and fried at the size. Fluffy, fragrant of yam and yam is moist. Did not overcook both the yam and scallop.

last classic dessert is their yam paste dessert. According to them, it had change where it only used to be yam paste and ginko. That will be classic teochew dessert. This version i think might be too much for me after all the yummy dishes. Filed with corn base which I also believe the sweetness is from a bit of condence milk too. Too think for my liking but it is not too bad if were to share.

Food here is good. what is my damage of my bill, I am not too sure as this meal as bought by my friend. I am guessing an estimation of SGD 180?

Great dinner place and Demsey Hill seems like a cool place to hang out, with so many F&B players in there. The only way to get there is by taxi or GRAB.

I am always a fan of Indonesian cuisine and I was craving for it since I came back from Bali 2 months ago. Till my friend introduce me Dancing Fish which serve Malay-Indo with combination of Malaysia and West Java which also following the trading route of Chinese Dutch Indian base back on their history.

On the table, this beautiful preserve flowers are place on the table and you can purchase them if you are keen. Can just ask the staff or can purchase it online at Lavieflo

As I flip through the menu, I got much excited on it as most of the dishes offered are quite classic and authentic. It is like I wanted to order as much as I can.

This is serve upon seated down, by serving their classic snacks  Emping with Sambal Terasi @ RM 7.95, that is  made out of melinjonuts (melinjo nuts). Crispy, cracking and with hint of bitter taste at the end to my liking. The best way to eat this is dig some sambal up and eat along. Loving it. Sambal is quite spicy.

As there are a few of us, we decided to try on their Appetizer Platter @ RM 49.80 which is a combination of their best seller item. Fit with charcoal grilled chicken satay, tofu bakar, seafood sate lilit and spicy green apple salad with salted fish.

The star of the platter is their chicken satay. Well marinated and done to perfection. juicy inside out and the sauce coated on it is to die for. Dip with their peanut sauce and i add on some sambal is just too good. Their Apple salad with salted fish is rather good too. power pack of sourness, mild spicy and i wish they add in more salted fish to give a nice bite crunch on the fish and apple. Tofu bakar is equally good too.

Another classic dish that I had before in Padang is this egg place with 2 sambal. Green is which is sour spicy and red is more direct spicy. Grill on the base then spread with this. Power pack flavor.

This would be something new to me as  Javanese Home Style Chicken Soup @ RM 12.65 is with a twist. Light in flavour, sweetness from the chicken, barley, carrot and lotus root is quite new to me but it is comforting.

Some of you might ask why dancing fish. Well, it is name after this style of cooking known as  “Nila Goreng”, the crispily deep-fried red tilapia is usually served with Sambal Terasi and Kicap which is their siganture. This round decided to try out something more fancy. We ordered Tempoyak dancing fish. (it is actually fermented durian base) @ RM 62.30. It is also known as a love hate relationship. Suprisingly, the gravy base here cook to perfecction. Only very mild hint of durian taste is there and the gravy mix with their nasi kuning berempah is something that you can stop eating. Addictive. Best of this fish is every part of it is edible and it is crunchy inside out.

Nasi Kuning Berempah is a must have.

Udang Bakar Enak with sambal matah – fresh tiger prawns, charcoal grilled over glowing ember. Basted with traditional Indonesian bbq sauce, serve with tangy lemongrass shallot raddish. A well balance of flavours from grill and sourness of shallots and some chili padi.

another signature they have is Buntut Goreng Enak. Deep fried  chunks of Australian oxtail, marinated and braised in aromatic herbs and spices which were then barbecued over charcoal fire to intensify the flavours. Eat along with the 3 sambal depending on your taste bud. I love it with green samble or I mixx 3 of it is the best combination. Soft fragrant crispy buntut.

Bebek Panggang (BBQ Duck) – marinated for 24 hours with an assortment of herbs and spices, then grilled over glowing charcoal embers and served with percik sauce (RM49.90).

To end, the waiter introduce Sweet Potato served with coconut scrappings, palm sugar and vanilla ice cream @ RM13.35. A mix of Cold and warm dessert. Not too bad though.

If you opt for refreshing series then hit on their Trio of Lemongrass Jelly with Pop Pops, Mango Lolo and Cendol Coconut Ice-cream. Gula melaka in cendol is good!

Came back here again for my friends birthday celebration and the quality still remains. If you love authentic Indonesian cuisine, this is certainly one of my recommended place. all their prices are NETT.

Seraph Awaken been introduce to be by a few friends and also some readers to ask to check this place out. After having awesome bak kut teh for breakfast as this newly discover place (click here), then we head over here for cuppa before heading back.

Over here they serve more like specialty coffee which is their signature with beans from Honduras, Ethiopia, India, El Savador, Guatemala, Mexico, and Columbia priced at RM 12-18 per cup or maybe these are too fancy for you, they do have normal coffee such as espresso, latte, americano, cappuccino, from RM 7-RM11.

Tucking in the area of Little India street in Klang, in a while stretch of old buildings, you can do expect this place is like sort of miniature of heritage area.

ambiance here is amazing as you are being transported back to the 80’s zone, marble coffee table, classic old wooden chairs, rattan concept chairs, benches, mixed square titles.

No air con but just to chill with fan.

Their fancy equipment for a cup of coffee

Some interesting single origin for you to try or if you are not too sure, just let them know what are your preffered taste profile and the barista will introduce you accordingly.

Hot water is prepared and measured accordingly to their idea setting of temperature. then will slowly pour into the coffee powder to open up the flavour and keep pouring after that.

During the preparation, the barista will explain to you on the profile that you are going to enjoy.

Another signature drink is their chocolate single origin  which is a must order item .

Some of them have flower tea which also with brewing process as the same as single origin. Single origin chocolate drink is awesome. Tastefully good, thick to my liking, with dark chocolate profile, very fragrant with coco.

Their soya bean cheesecake with Pistachio is a must order item too. Base on availability. It is indeed a nice chill experience and it is just too hot for me to sit there quite long.

Food rating 7.5/10 , if you love single origin and around the area, do drop by! -Stamped-
