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.

Buldojang Korean Style Chinese Restaurant – Desa Sri Hartamas

Today, Lap Cheong brought me to Bul Do Jang for dinner. Bul Do Jang is a korean style chinese restaurant located in Desa Sri Hartamas. Same row with Guardian and hiding on the second floor of the shop-lots.

There are merely few tables and a private room in the restaurant. I bet they are always full house during peak hours. Not sure if you can make reservations but they do delivery around Desa Sri Hartamas Area.

The price is very reasonable as they offer free cold drinking water and fresh fruits after meal. The amount of the food is HUGE too.

I will definitely revisit for the jjampong. Lap Cheong says the sweet and sour pork is one of their signature dish also.

Senya Izakaya Publika

This month is my dear friend lapcheong’s birthday month. We went to Senya Izakaya to celebrate his birthday. We wanted to try Kampachi lunch buffet at first but the price is too steep for us.

Senya Izakaya is one of the most popular restaurant in Publika. Almost every weekend is full house in Senya Izakaya. Remember to make reservation to book your seat so you don’t have to wait. I didn’t make reservation and we have to wait for more than 1 and 15 minutes for the table.

Klang Yip Weng Bak Ku Teh – Bdr Puteri Puchong

Sometimes i would choose to dine in a restaurant with good service and OK food rather than queuing up for nicer but overpriced and no / bad service restaurant.

Yip Weng BKT is not the best BKT i ever had but is enjoyable and you will be attracted by their friendly service.


The soup version of BKT
The soup was thick enough but not heavy. The meat was tender and easily detached from the bone.


The dry version of BKT [ Signature Dish ] I like this version than soup. The pork cooked with BKT spices, dried chili, dried cuttlefish and lady’s finger. Both version of BKT also go well with white rice or onion rice.


Oily vegetable to balance out the dinner.


Menu and price list [2015]

My starter. Crispy potato chips, salmon with white sauce, pickled octopus, roasted duck, imitation abalone slices, salmon sashimi and grilled chicken stick (Shish Tawook).

There are many unique middle east dishes on the buffet counters. Unfortunately taste wise its not as what our expectancy is.
