Food Review - Vacation @ KB - Yati Ayam Percik

The final nite @ KB was the nite where we were searching for another good dinner at KB. I went to this one place while doing some work at KB before, so I thought that would be a good place to go for dinner.

The place is called Yati Ayam Percik. It's about 5 minutes drive from our hotel and when we reached there, the place was quite pack.
The cuties were excited watching the chicken and beef being grilled right in front of their eyes.
We ordered Nasi Kerabu accompanied with Gulai Kawah, Ayam Percik and Daging Bakar. The food was as good as how I remembered it to be.
My better half just couldn't resist to try one of the dessert. He said it was awesome!

Now the review :
Taste - 3.5 - suits my taste very well
Location - 3.5 - not having to drive that far was very ideal for us Service - 3 - oklah, but mcm slow skit
Price - 3.5 - very worth the money, cheap!

It's quite sad to leave KB the next day. We pledged to come here again and this time with more money...for more shopping!!

Food Review - Vacation @ KB - Nasi Ulam Cikgu

After the shopping trip @ Pengkalan Kubor, I wanted to bring my better half and the cuties for lunch at a very prominent lunch place at Kota Bharu. The place is called Nasi Ulam Cikgu. I did not get the chance to take photos of the signboard so found this via google image. I had lunch here during one of my working trips to Kota Bharu.
My baby was so tired waiting for her mama doing the shopping that she slept all the way to the makan place.
This place was very crowded. We reached there around 2pm and thought that's like after lunch hour so there won't be many people there. Well, there were alot of people there.
This place is famous for all the ulams they served. You can see so many type of ulams and some you may not have seen or heard before.

My better half and the cuties had ikan patin and ikan keli while I had fried chicken since I don't take ikan sungai. Of course with the ulams and sambal belacan. Still don't have the guts to take budu.The cuties love this place, so did my better half. I'm glad, cause I really wanted to share the places I've been to with them.

So, now the review :
Taste - 3.5 - everything was ok, just that we were late so not there's not many choices
Location - 3 - parking was very difficult, we parked right at the junction and prayed that we don't get a ticket
Service - 4 - very friendly and fast
Price - 4 - cheap. All in with drinks were only RM25

This place is very worth visiting if you are in KB. Make sure you do drop by if you are in the neighbourhood.

Food Review - Warung Dusun Sup Gear Box

We are preparing for our family vacation. We planned this since January which is something we don't usually do for vacations. Usually we would be the pack-and-go type but we thought no to risk it as the place that we planned to visit is hours away from Bangi.

So, we decided not to stock up the fridge and to cook whatever is available during the day and to eat out for dinner. We are ok with this arrangement as it is only for 2 days.

We often drove by this venue, right after the Kajang-Bangi PLUS to exit but never had the chance to really stop and try the food here. This place was also recommended by my better half's colleagues. So, we thought to give it a try last night.
What can I say, I was not dissapointed. We ordered white rice, sup gear box(the speciality here), paprik campur, ayam goreng kunyit, telur dadar and kerang rebus. My baby did not feel like having rice so she had mee hailam instead. The service was superfast! There were quite a crowd in the outlet but we waited less than 10 minutes for our food and I am not kidding nor exegerrating. That is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. And yours truly was very surprised and was not able to hide her happiness considering she did not eat anything the whole day so that she can have a nice dinner.
The ambiance was very nice. With waterfall and everything, the cuties enjoyed it.

The main dish, Sup Gearbox. Was having trouble explaining to the cuties the gear box name origin and as usual I will just respond - Soalan tu susah lah, tanya papa jer lah.

My hero trying the straw thing which he did not enjoy at all. But for my better half, this was his favourite part. I was trying to explain to him on the calories content and cholestrol but he just ignored me and kept on sipping.
Now the review :
Taste - 3.5 - not too bad, love the soup but the paprik kureng skit. The kerang were really fresh though
Location - 3.5 - very convenient, we can choose the trunk road or the highway
Service - 4.5 - SUPERFAST and to our disbelief!! And before you ask, the food was hot and freshly cooked, I know, I can tell
Price - 4 - not bad. For all that we ordered with drinks, it costs us RM41.

So, care for Gearbox, mari ler ke Bandar Baru Bangi.

Food Review - Haji Rony Tomyam

As usual, Friday nite is the eating out nite for our family. I wanted to blog about this earlier but forgotlah! Last Friday we had our dinner at Haji Rony Tomyam & Seafood.

Sorry the picture is not so clear. I forgot to bring my camera so was using my better half's mobile to take the photo

This place was introduced by my former boss and we have been frequenting it since then. It's located at Jln Kuchai Lama right after the exit of NPE. It's just next to the old Pondok Polis Kuchai Lama. There are many stalls there but this one located right at the corner.

The speciality of this place is the ikan siakap masak stim. I don't usually eat steam fish cause takut rasa hanyir. But, here it's different. The steam fish is so nice and the gravy is simply awesome.

We will also add on sotong goreng tepung, tomyam and telur dadar. That's the usual.
The price is very affordable. For all that we ordered plus the large glass of fruit juice, it costs us RM42. Not bad for KL area.

Now the review
Taste - 3.5 - for this visit but usually the taste deserves 5 points, tukang masak tak sihat kot
Location - 4 - quite convenient for us now as we will go through this road to go back to BSP
Service - 4 - fast and courteous
Price - 4.5 - very affordable...mmg murah

And before you ask....No, I don't know who is Haji Rony :)
