There are few restaurants but me and my friend were craving for some Korean food. We decided to go to Setia Walk for Ticket to Korea restaurant. Ticket to Korea is a Korean food restaurant and one of their signature dish is pork ribs with cheese.

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.

Ocean Tuna sandwich with Wasabi Croissant [ RM11.80 ]

Very mild taste of wasabi croissant yet very crispy and good match with the tuna.

Garlic & Basil Chicken with Garlic Croissant [ Rm16.80 ]

I don’t like this. Too much of basil paste and the large amount of basil used here contributes an overwhelming flavor. The whole sandwich just tastes like basil.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat – Pudu

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

Nothing beats a hotpot in a cold raining night. We went to Xiao Fei Yang steamboat to have the super hot and spicy Ma La steamboat.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

The Menu. We chose the hot & spicy soup RM25. If you cannot take very spicy food, i would advise you to take combination soup. It’s half of herbal soup and half of hot & spicy soup.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

Check out the hot & spicy soup. At first, i still can handle the spiciness but not after the soup was boiled for long time. The soup became super hot & spicy after all the spiciness of dried chilies coming out.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

The sauces for you to dip your meats or vegetable. Try to mix all the sauces together, it will give additional kicks to overall taste.

Prickled cabbage, please order this if you’re having hot and spicy soup. This is a must for hot and spicy soup. Chinese cabbage and vermicelli.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

Cuttle fish and pork ball, Chinese dumplings ( must order ) and mushroom. The Chinese dumpling is actually minced pork and chives dumpling. It’s juicy and delicious.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

Can you feel the spiciness by looking at the picture?

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

After an hour torture for the tongue, i have to order a jar of watermelon juice to cool down.

Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat

Just order a jar of juice and skip other drinks, you would be thankful later.

If you have any enemy who cannot handle spicy food, just bring them here and watch them cry. 🙂

Nice and cozy interior. I could spend a whole day here. The sofa seats is very comfortable.

Sae Ma Eul BBQ – Solaris Mont Kiara

I’ve been bugging my friends for bbq, and they brought me to Sae Ma Eul in Solaris Mon’t Kiara. We arrived at 7pm and queued for table. The queue was long, there were 5-6 groups ahead but luckily we get the table first because we were in small group.

The BBQ Set RM55 [ Comes with pork belly, pork shoulder and marinated baby octopus ]

Korean side dishes

The marinated baby octopus. Sweet, juicy and chewy.

Grilling the meats, chilis and spicy rice ball.

I love the spicy rice ball. It is RM20 per bowl and you will be given a pair of hand gloves, you have to roll the rice ball by yourself and grill it. It was crispy, sweet and spicy.


Pork Ribs Stew RM 18

I don’t like the stew. The stew is thick and comes with generous amount of pork ribs but i just don’t like this stew. Maybe because the stew is too thick and doesn’t goes well with BBQ.

I will definitely be back again for the spicy rice ball.
