It has been a long time i haven’t go out with my favorite human. So we decided to catch up for a bit and went to have dinner in Tsubohachi Izakaya Hokkaido in Publika. This is the their first branch in Malaysia. We were so attracted by their interior design. They have these gigantic bathtub looking seating and also many cute maneki neko on the wall.

The service was superb! Once we were setting down, the waiter brought hot towel [Oshibori ] for us to clean our hand. Besides, we never need to raise our hand for ordering! Our tea cup were kept being refilled.

Tarabagani Kamameshi – Red King Crab Pot Rice
We had to wait 10-20 minutes for the rice to cook, but the wait is worth it. There were 4-5 pieces of king crab legs in the pot. The rice becomes rich with crab, carrot and mushroom flavor.I cannot taste any seasoning but just the natural flavor from the ingredients, which is very nice and comforting.

Onsen Tamago. One with the special sauce and one with the regular shoyu. I think the special sauce is the mixture of shoyu and ponzu sauce.

Overall, i will definitely re-visit again for the good food and great service. If you cannot get a seat in Senya Izakaya, is a great choice to come Tsubohachi Izakaya.

Instant Szechuan Spicy and Sour Glass Noodles Review

This is another flavor of China instant glass noodles that i bought from Kepong China shop, instant Szechuan spicy and sour glass noodles.

Instant Szechuan Spicy and Sour Glass Noodles

There are 1 pack of dried beans and vege, 1 pack of salted bean paste, 1 pack of vinegar, 1 pack of seasoning powder and glass noodles. Same again, dump everything inside boiling water for 2 minutes and added an egg. I am sorry, I cannot wait to eat that noodles so there is no picture for the done noodles. The soup is sour and spicy as it’s promised and dried beans turned out to be peanuts. I added sesame oil to make more flavors and make the noodles tastier. There are Szechuan peppers in the seasoning powder, you can get to taste the exactly same numbing effects from authentic Szechuan spicy foods. I will definitely repurchase this glass noodles.

Instant Szechuan pickles beef broth glass noodles Review

This is instant szechuan pickles beef broth glass noodles from China, i bought it from a china shop in Kepong. Rm2.20 per pack, quite pricey for me but this is rare items in Malaysia’s market. I bought a few flavors to try.

Sorry, the picture is not appealing but the taste was good, the glass noodles was so soft and slippery, absorbed the beef broth and very chewy! The broth is good, thick, tasty with pickles. The glass noodles goes very well with the broth and just one pack is not enough to end your hunger! You will crave for more after 1 bowl.

Kepong Thai Garden Village (TGV) Review

mmm I like Thai food, I love having Thai food in raining day. Kepong Thai Garden Village is one of the popular Thai cuisine restaurant in Kepong area. Food is nice, price is reasonable, staff are friendly, environment is cool, private parking, kid’s playground, mini aquarium, air condition room and open air place. What can you ask for more? Check here for location.

Kepong TGV

Kepong Thai Garden Village

Kepong TGV

Kepong TGV

Their signature dishes are fire phoenix with honey, claypot crab with vermicelli, tomyam soup, fried tilapia with mango salad, mango salad, grilled lamb shoulders…… And my flavours dishes are steamed lala, fried paku pakis, salted egg squid, clear tomyam seafood soup, green curry chicken, fried butter prawn, grilled lamb shoulders and mango salad.

Salted Egg Squid

Salted Egg Squid- Rm 19.90

This is a must order dishes if you like salted egg or squid. I went to TGV more than 10 times, and they managed to serve me with fresh squid every time. I like this dish because TGV prepared it in wet style instead of fried style. Normally when you order salted egg squid in other places, some restaurant will just fried the squid with salted egg but in TGV they serve it in wet style, you can still taste the freshness of the squid and the creamy texture of salted egg.

Red seafood tom yam soup

Small Red seafood tom yam soup- RM 15.90

How can you not order a tomyam soup in a Thai restaurant. TGV provide few choices for tomyam soups, there are clear soup, coconut tomyam soup, prawn soup and few more. My favourite is clear tomyam soup, which is more spicy and salty. TGV is generous, small bowl of tomyam seafood is enough for 2-3 person to share, and everyone will get a full small bowl of seafood and tomyam soup.

Fried butter prawn

Fried butter prawn- Rm 20.90

Fresh prawn with creamy butter and crispy shredded egg, mmmmm, I am reminiscing the taste. The chef is so good, the prawn can eat with the crispy shell together with the creamy butter. The shell is crispy yet the meat is tender and sweet.

Thai style steamed squid

Thai style steamed squid- RM2?.90 (maybe Rm22.90, but not more than RM25)

Thai style steamed squid, i prefer Thai style steamed lala tho, but it’s good too. Squid is fresh, broth is sour and spicy.

Fried mixed vegetables

Fried mixed vegetables- Rm12.90

Fried mixed vegetables goes well with fluffy white rice.

Ice blended

Mango tango and soursop pop ice blended- Rm6.90 each

The ice blended is good too. Smooth and taste good although they only using syrups for the flavours.

Sekian, this is one of my favourite restaurant.

Paldo Bibim-myun – Korean Cold and Spicy Instant Noodle Review

It was Saturday.

And i was browsing QOO10, looking for cheap deals and i came across this awesome Korean ramyun deals. Without hesitation, I quickly bought 2 e-tickets for the ramyun. I choose 1 Japaghetti ( Korean instant black bean sauce noodles ) and 1 Bibim-myun ( Korean instant spicy cold noodles ). Rush to the Kim’s mart in Sri Hartamas and grab the noodles. Kim’s mart is selling all kind of authentic Korean products, kimchi, chili paste, korean rice, and more than 15 kinds of Korean instant noodles! I got excited and bought more ramyun – Shin Ramyun, Namja Ramyun, KoKo Chicken Ramyun, Spicy Udon Ramyun and few cup noodles.

Once I went home, gently putting the ramyun into my maggie shelf and for the first time I saw the expiry date of the ramyun. Graaa, almost all the ramyun will be expired before May 2014.

It’s ok, I will eat them all before the expiry date. So, I tried the suspicious looking Paldo bibimyun first. There is an apple on the packaging, so i guess there is apple sauce mixture in the cold and spicy sauce.

Mix the sauce with noodles and eat it!

Bibimyun is very appetizing because of the hot and sweet sauce. Unlike Shin ramyun noodles, bibimyun noodles is different, is lighter and springy. There is a bit vinegar taste and some dried octopus flakes?. I can’t taste the apple sauce though. It’s refreshing and nice to eat on hot days. Not so awesome but still a good ramyun.

Not my favourite tho
