Green Mug Cheese Coffee @ Gaya Street, Sabah

Have you ever heard of cheese coffee before? No, this is relatively new to me as well when Susan told me about cheese coffee! It sounds weird but the taste of the cheese really blended well with the coffee. And now you can try it at Gaya St, Kota Kinabalu. Green Mug Cheese Coffee has their own truck before this and now they have opened a small shop at Gaya St. 

The front of the shop..

 The menu is pretty simple and the price is very reasonable!

 The Tiramisu and Coffee Latte version! The drink is thick enough but I would prefer a less sweet version! =)

New type of beverage to kick start our CNY mood!

The setback about this place is that, it's pretty small inside. So it's a bit difficult to accommodate for big groups! =)

Enjoy and have a nice weekend.

Kang San Ea Korean Restaurant @ Ampang Avenue, Selangor

Whenever I thought of having Korean food in KL, I would always think of Korean restaurants at "Korean Village" Ampang. This is because they never fail to impress their authenticity of their local cuisine to their customers! High expectations are always met.

As for this time, my family and I just hopped into this traditional style Korean restaurant, Kang San Ea. I presumed this restaurant has been here for years! It was really a warm welcome by the staff and the 2 Korean aunties when we stepped into the restaurant. As for the menu, it's similar to any other Korean restaurants, so it was quite simple to choose!

At the front of the shop... Hard to miss them as you can find the K-pop stars on their glass panels!

 Refillable side dishes.. Simple and nice...

Kimchi Stew.. Though my appetite was really bad that day, luckily I have this to open it up! So this was my soup of the day.. =) 

Tteokbokki (Korean glutenous rice cake) with seafood. It was not too salty and it has the authentic Korean taste which I had in those Korean restaurant in KK  

Grilled Pork Belly.. Readily grilled for us.. Good for us as we were always lazy to grill ourselves and no oily smoke for us! =) 

Korean pancake.. The portion was big and luckily we had 6 of us because it won't taste good if you have this too much! One slide was just nice.. 

Beef Stew.. The beef was so so so soft and the texture was just nice, good for the old folks.. If you are alone, you can just order this with a bowl of rice and that's it! =)

 Another grilled marinated pork but I prefer the plain grilled pork belly

Total damage done was about RM 150 including green tea for 6 person. The price was reasonable for 6 person and there will always be next time!

Enjoy and have a nice weekend. =)

Zheng Long Mun 龍門客栈 OR 武侠竹林 @ Hulu Langat, Selangor

This place has been advertised many times on Facebook since long time ago and I finally had a chance to try this place for this trip back to KL! =)

Zheng Long Mun 龍門客栈 (actually I have no idea what is their exact name) is located at the starting point of Jalan Hulu Langat, near Pekan Bt 14 Hulu Langat side. You can get the direction by searching for 武侠竹林 from Google Map and it can lead your the way there. Parking is never an issue and you may want to do reservation if you plan to go there during peak hours. The main menu is relatively simple as you can pick a variety of fish or seafood to be cooked and the big bamboo dish can serve up to 3-4 person. They even have a few special dishes which you want to try!

 The menu at Zheng Long Mun 龍門客栈

 Bamboo clams in bamboo.. Though it was not as pretty as those which I saw in picture but this tasted quite good. Just not too spicy.. Never waste the sauce!

Crabs in bamboo.. Price is about RM 60+ per kg. Tasted not bad as well.

Mixed seafood in bamboo.. A mix of prawns, squid and clams in spicy sauce. Everything was great but just a bit too much of chilies flakes. 

All 3 dishes for 6 person costed us about RM 225 including tea. The setback of this place is that there is many many many mosquitoes! So make sure that you request them to lit a mosquito coil for you! Besides, they don't really have a proper toilet. So these are my comments!

Enjoy and have a nice weekend. =)
