Food Review - Roti Canai Bandar Baru Bangi

Last weekend, we have planned to have breakfast at this place recommended by Ms GTL. She said, during her uni years in UKM, this place was(and still is) very famous among the students. This place is located in Bandar Baru Bangi, near the furniture mall and opposite Esso petrol station. It's right after you enter the Kajang exit along the PLUS highway heading to Bandar Baru Bangi. Quite easy to identify. The place is on a small hill with loads of cars and people.
We arrived around 9.15am and already, there are so many customers. The place was packed and we got the last 2 tables there. Actually, they not only have Roti Canai there, they also have nasi lemak(with lots of choices for the lauk), soto(mee, mee hon, nasi impit), otak2 and tahu bakar. We ordered mostly everything on the menu ; nasi lemak sambal kerang, soto nasi, otak2 and of course nasi roti canai(one each for everyone).

The service was quite efficient. We were attended to immediately after we were seated. The food also arrived not so long after that. Except for the otak2, apparently they forgot about this order.
Now, the review....

Taste - 3 - Ok lah...nothing to shout at, but somehow, I felt all the food were kurang masin, I thought it was me, but my better half and the cuties also felt the same way, healty food kot?Location - 3.5 - convenient for us considering we are now part of Bangi clan, but parking may be a problem cause it's quite limited.
Service - 4- fast even there were many customers around
Price - 4 - cheap, the breakfast for all of us with all the above menu was less than RM20

And look who we bumped into there. Dato' Dr Fadzilah Kamsah. From the way he converse with the shop people, either he is a regular or he is just friendly to everyone whom he just met. He looks older though compared to him in TV.
Last word, be early if you want to eat here. When we arrived, they were already announcing, they don't accept orders for take away. Laku betul kan!

Food Review - Smokehouse Steamboat

I was fasting yesterday, alhamdulilah completed 4 days, 2 more days to go...Sempat ker nie...

My better half was asking me what do I feel like having for Iftar. I was actually exhausted, the LRT gave me a double trouble yesterday, once during my way to work and another time was during on my way back...And on the way back was the worst!!!

So, he suggested, let's go to Smokehouse Steamboat. This will be our second time to the place. The first time was a pleasant experience so we hope the second one will be as pleasant as the first.
I arrived at Kelana Jaya station 10 minutes to 7pm, and iftar time is also 7pm. However, my better half was stuck in traffic so he arrived only at 7.15pm. While waiting for him, I had air kotak for buka puasa. We stopped at a nearby mosque after that for maghrib prayers then headed to Smokehouse place. And alhamdulilah, it did not dissapoint us.

The cuties enjoyed themselves as well especially on the desert, ice cream free flow tu...

Now the review...

Taste - 4 - Love the food there, for the price that we are paying, memang best!!
Location - 4 - easy access since we were in KJ
Service - 4- Friendly and fast
Price - 4 - worth the money..

Urrghhhh kenyang, better solat isya' dulu, ada yg tertidur tak solat nie...

Food Review - Sari Ratu Nasi Padang

I was fasting on Tuesday, and wanted so badly to have Nasi Padang from Sari Ratu. We planned to have this during Ramadhan for buka puasa but the day we made the arrangements, the traffic was so bad and we ended up have the ala Ratu Buka Puasa in the car instead.I have been receiving good reviews from friends who have eaten here so I wanted to give it a try. This particular branch is in Kelana Jaya.

We ordered quite a feast(the cuties did not join us, just me and my better half). We ordered Ayam Pop - short form of Ayam Popular and this came with a special sauce and pucuk ubi rebus, Gulai Tunjang - my better half's favourite, vege, crispy spicy potato and this special dish which came from Indonesia like a mini eel crispy fried and cooked with chilli. Of course, this will not be complete with the sambal merah.
The gulai tunjang, the spine of a cow and my better half's favourite. Not my kind of food so I just had the gravy.
The mini eel crispy fried, recommended as a must try at this place.
Here's the review....
Taste - 2.5 - not too bad, but not to my liking
Location - 3.5 - convinient and parking is very easy
Service - 2 - lembab skit ler
Price - 3.5 - ok, quite affordable

Maybe I'm not so into this Nasi Padang thing...sebab tu ler tak enjoy sangat kot?
