Looking for some cheap food in One Utama Shopping Center? Try O Banh Mi in New Wing. O Banh Mi is a Vietnamese sandwich bar, not only limited in sandwich, they sell noodles, rice and vietnamese coffee too.Fried beef vermicelli. It’s served warm with generous amount of crushed peanuts and vege. You will like it if you like asian spice /herbs taste and peanuts. Else you will get bored with the taste after half bowl.
So i was having lunch with my co-workers in Bandar Sri Damansara and i saw this cafe truck on the parking space. I read about them from Vkeong blog and decided to give it a try.I saw the price list and backed off but the friendly barista told me they are having buy 1 free 1 promotion. So me and my co-worker decided to share the coffee. I had the Iced Thai Coffee and my co-worker get the Iced Coconut Coffee. The iced thai coffee tastes good. Smells good,tastes rich and smooth. Is a good coffee but i don’t think is worth for RM11.50 per cup. I would consider to buy again if they are in lower price.

They have a large menu selection and an English menu as well. The menu offers a good variety of choices from hot soup, grilled food, pancakes to other popular korean dishes. Refillable banchan. Sweet mashed potatoes salad, pickled radish and a cold seaweed soup. Ojinguh-bokkeum [Spicy Stir-fried Squid ] The stir fried squid is very tender, sourish with a slightly sweet and spicy flavor. Haemul Pajeon [Seafood Pancake ] Totally recommended! Crispy outside, light and fluffy inside with tender and fresh seafood in each bite. Hong Hap Tang [ Mussel Soup ] The generous amount of mussels in the pot give the soup a great flavor. The soup is very tasty and a little spicy. Cheese Buldak [ Spicy chicken with cheese ]. Chicken pieces cooked with spicy korean sauce and topped with a lot of cheese. Not very spicy actually. I think the cheese buldak will taste much better if they only use big cubes of skinless chicken thighs. Is not comfortable to eat the chicken skin with cheese and chili oil. Jokbal [ Korean Boiled Pig Trotters with mustard sauce and salad ] Although they don’t look that appetizing, taste similar to Teochew braised pig’s leg. Interesting texture, cold, chewy and taste like meat jelly. Jjambbong Tang [ Spicy Seafood Soup ] ) was full with seafood. Flower crab, squid, prawns, mussels and clams. It has a strong seafood taste but fresh and a bit of spiciness. Delicious.
Fried chicken and soju! I still prefer fried chicken with beer. The fried chicken was crispy and tender, but nothing special. The white color liquid in clear bottle is Sola Pocha special cocktail soju- yogurt soju. Taste like milkis with soju. Smooth and will not burn your throat.

There are a lot of fresh vegetables free flow for you to wrap the bbq meats. Not only the normal green lettuce, they have green pepper, garlic, white lettuce, red leaf lettuce, perilla and celery.Milkies, sikhye – the yellow can [traditional sweet Korean rice beverage] and sac sac grape juice. There are free cold water for you if you don’t want to order any beverage.
Very limited seating in the restaurant, so i think is better you call for reservation to avoid any disappointment. Not a time limit buffet, you can eat till the shop closed.

Gemfive is operated by Guoline emarketing, a member of Hong Leong group. To be frank, i think they need to improve their marketing campaign as not many people are aware of their existence in e-commerce. I like the layout and graphics, it’s responsive, clean and minimalist. You see what you need to see.
Based on the products they listed, gemfive is more to high end products. You can get Ogawa home spa massage chair at RM12k, Samsung TV at RM80k till gateway packages at RM20k. Some of the deals are very attractive. I’ve made twice transactions with gemfive and i am satisfied with the products i received.First, i bought a pair of New Balance Sneakers with discount on Cybersales day. The exact same pair is selling at Rm199 at Zalora and Lazada. Item received few days later after the transaction. No tracking code provided. The order confirmation email written ” You will receive email notifications upon processing and delivery of your order and a link to track its progress.” But there is no other email notification other than this confirmation email and invoice email. I logged to my account and check but the order will only shown processing. Never mind, at last i received my sneakers in great bargain.
And i just bought a luggage bag with 30% discount.
I made the payment at 19/11/2015 [night] and received the luggage bag at 21/11/2015.
Not sure how is their customer service quality as i don’t have a chance to use it yet. But i am concerned about the credit card payment, their payment gateway didn’t trigger the MSOS code for credit card, and no statement for the PDPA. I had to call to my credit card helpline to check on the next day. I guess i will not be using credit card in Gemfive in the future, maybe other payment method.
While waiting for 007 Spectre in GSC One Utama, i bought a waffle from Grid & Go to try.
Grid & Go is located at the same floor of Golden Screen Cinema. The waffle stall is clean and bright, you can easily spot it at first glance.
They have quite a few choices for waffle flavors. But all the waffle is just waffle, without any toppings. IMO, the waffle tastes great on its own.Creamy Hokkaido @ RM 7. Crispy outside and soft inside. It’s not creamy inside, but the texture is softer mochi like. Mochi Caramel @ RM6. It is pretty much like Creamy Hokkaido but with the caramel taste. The inside is thicker and more chewy. I like Mochi Caramel than Creamy Hokkaido, but both were good waffle too.
