CABO Mexican Kitchen & Bar @ Lintas Plaza

When you talk about Mexican food in KK, I can only remember Chiwawa which serves mainly Burritos which are really really good. I was quite sad when it was closed down like a year ago because I have one place lesser to hang out already. But but... I realise that Cabo and Chiwawa are actually linked when I talked to one of the boss! =) As for Cabo, there are a lot more varieties to choose as for food and drinks, and they even serve alcoholic drinks as well. If you are not sure anything about menu, do not hesitate to ask because the people there are really friendly. 

Horchata (RM 6), a Mexican drink which made of mainly rice and maybe some cinnamon.. Very special kind of drink and it's not too sweet... Must try! 

Sante Fe (RM 18), salad with juicy grilled chicken.. Just to make sure that we have some fiber intake! Recommended by the waiter... 

Molcajete (RM 38), rice with grilled stuff served in a claypot.. A mixed of everything such as chicken, beef, fish fillets and prawns. I like the grilled beef the most because it's soft and tender, not like "old shoe".. Well done!

Mexican brownie (RM 8), dessert time.. Served with fruit cubes and chocolate sauce.. Brownie is well baked and not too sweet too! =) That's all.. Good enough for 2 person!

So make sure that you make your reservation if you are coming in a big group... Cabo is located in the same row with Lady Bon Bon and it's a corner shop. So, it's easily spotted!

Enjoy and have a nice day!

Brunei Satay House and Beaufort Baker @ Beaufort

If you are travelling to Beaufort or looking for place to stop by while on the way to Labuan, you can look for these places for lunch! First, find for this place if you are a fan of satay! Most people in the restaurant actually ordered just satay even though there are many more to choose from the menu and there are many take away orders too, so that shows that how famous is their satay! The satay served is huge and there are 3 types of meat to choose, namely chicken, beef or mutton. Each stick for chicken and beef is RM 0.70 and as for mutton, it's RM 1.00 per stick. They sell internal organs e.g. stomach as well. =) 

Satay served.. Look how huge are those meat.. 

Eat while it's still hot and juicy! 

But sorry to say that the peanut sauce was a bit disappointing because I can't really feel that there is peanut in the sauce.. =(  I hope that they would improve on the sauce and that will be perfect!

Next stop, Beaufort Baker for "Mee Soto" and Curry Puffs! If you are not sure what is "Mee Soto", it is a simple soup noodle with chicken or beef slice or balls. And according to my friend, this place serves one of the best Curry puffs in town but too bad, Curry puffs sold out!

 "Mee Soto" with chicken balls.. Make sure that you add their spicy sauce to spice up your noodle! =)

"Mee Soto" with beef slices and balls.. Very good soup base and didn't really feel that there is a lot of MSG.. =)

Enjoy and have a nice day.. =)

Kedai Kopi 10 @ Lintas Plaza

If you are looking for good and fresh buns from the oven, this is one of the recommended place to please you if you are lazy to travel to Lido, Gaya St. or Kolombong! Never too hard to find Kedai Kopi 10. It's located right opposite of Party Play and same row with Bon Bon Cafe. Make sure that you come here early for the buns because they are quickly sold out once they are placed on the trays... =) I think there are more than 15 choices for you to choose on the shelf. The price for the buns is quite reasonable and price for each bun range from RM 1.50 to RM 3.00.. If you want more than buns, you can order DimSum from the adjacent shop or fish noodle from the stall behind. So what are you waiting for!

Front of the shop.. Once you get your parking, make sure that you buy your parking ticket! Parking is free on Sundays only...

"Loh Mai Kai" and "Zhu Cheong Fun", DimSum from the adjacent shop.. 

(L) Char Siew, BBQ pork Bun, (R) Polo, pineapple jam Bun.. Both taste equally good but the content is a bit too little to satisfy.. Polo bun at Gaya St. is still the best!

Chicken pie bun.. Recommended by the boss.. A choice which you can hardly find from other place.. A mixed of Western style and it tasted really good..  

Luncheon meat bun.. A small slice of luncheon meat in the bun! =)

Buns are always good when they are served directly from the oven. Prefer not to take away! Enjoy and have a nice weekend! =)

Bits and Bits of Bidor, Ipoh and Pusing! (back dated 26-27 Dec 2014)

I have not gone back to my dad's hometown at Pusing and have my eating trip to Ipoh, Perak since I have came to Sabah and work. Finally, the waiting has ended! Though it was a short trip but everything was good and I did managed to taste back some of the wonderful "missed" food for years...

First stop, Bidor. I guess the first thing that come across your mind should be the famous duck noodle at Pun Chun Restaurant. Well, not for this time! As for this time, we went for the famous Wantan noodle at the Bidor Food court. I can say that their noodle was not too bad, chewy and not too salty and MSG-ed. Overall above average, at least better as compared to many other Wantan noodle in KL! Other side dishes include pork leg and Yong Tauhu. If you want to buy salted chicken in Bidor, you can buy from the small stall beside the food court. Whole chicken will cost you about RM 19! =)

Second stop, Ipoh. When you talk about Ipoh beansprout chicken rice, there are quite a number of famous shops in Ipoh and one of it is Lou Wong. One thing quite disappointed with this place was the portion is set and it was kind of over estimated especially when you have small eaters on your table! So my advice is "Don't other too much if you can't really eat to avoid wastage!" Other side dishes include meat balls and chicken feet. Chicken feet is a must try dish because it has a very special taste which is difficult to describe..

Super big portion for 4 person... 

Third stop, Ipoh as well. Restaurant Thean Chun in Ipoh Old Town is famous for its Hor Fun, pork satay and the dessert, egg custard. Try to avoid to come to this shop during peak season e.g. long weekends, festive season etc. because it's really really really congested and it may take up to one hour to wait for the Hor Fun. But at the meantime, you can order some other specialties from the shop e.g. pork satay with internal organs, "sotong kangkung" and even the super smooth dessert, egg custard! 

Super smooth egg custard, but it's a bit too sweet because of the caramel.. Anyway, once in a while.. =p

Chicken, pork satay with internal organs... Internal organs are the most hot selling item from that stall! 

 Ipoh Hor Fun.. Super smooth Hor Fun with very heavy soup base..

And lastly, Pusing. Time to visit my uncles and aunties. But before that, Wan Tao Long (Jelly Ice drink) is a MUST drink before heading to their house! This stall is located right in front of the mini food court and it's difficult to miss this! You can order the Jelly Ice to be with coconut milk or lime juice... Both tastes equally good especially under the hot weather!

That's all for this trip. Looking forward for when is my next trip back to Ipoh is going to be! =)

Enjoy and have a nice day..
