Croissant – Le Bread Days Bakery Cafe

Croissant

People often think of France when they hear mention of the croissant, but Austria is the true country of birth for this famous pastry. Its Viennese, not French! … Another origin story comes from Vienna, where the delicious, flaky pastry was created to celebrate the defeat of the Ottomans by Christian forces in 1683.

Croissants are a tasty pastry made by folding sugary-buttery dough to create a layered look. The dough is then formed into a crescent shape with tapered ends and baked. This gives the croissant an appearance of order and structure

Croissants are one of my favorite pastry to eat and they come in plain and other stuffing as well. In Le Bread Days their signature croissant is the Molten Salted Eggs Custard Croissant. This was introduce to me long time ago when everyone was talking about it but I never had the opportunity to try them until recently.

Imagine warm, yellowish, gooey, aromatic molten egg yolk custard flowing out as you munch through freshly baked, golden brown croissant that is shatter-crisp at the outside, buttery at the inside. So yummy.

We tried a few different types of stuffing and still the Molten Salted Egg Custard was the best tasting. Must try this croissant if you love all food which involves Salted Egg.

Mutton Puttu Kottu

This is my first time eating Puttu and I loved it.
It wasn’t as spicy and it reminded me of fried couscous. It was like a flavored fried rice with chunks of  mutton meat.
It came with a side of sweet chutney and some crackers.

Iddiyappam – string hoppers

Sri Lankan recipes make copious use of strong spices and hell lot of chillies; resulting to dishes that are fiery, utterly delicious and rich in flavours such as this fish curry which made my tongue on fire.

A must-try at Lankan Cafe is the Appam. The Appams are fluffy and chewy in the centre and crunchy on the edges. A light coconut taste fills your mouth with each bite. If you’re feeling a little bit adventurous, try the egg Appam with a sunny side up egg.

Sarawak Laksa – Restoran Aunty Christina Laksa

37170163870_7f90eba26b_o

Aunty Christina was only operating a small stall inside a Kopitiam in Lucky Garden in Bangsar for many decades and I have eaten her Sarawak Laksa many times already.

Only recently she moved her business to her own premises in Sea Park which I finally got a chance to locate her restaurant and once again eating her awesome Sarawak Laksa. The menu was pretty simple and another thing that caught my eyes was the special dish of Hakka Abacus Seeds which I could not resist to make an order. Being a Hakka myself how can I not eat them. The Abacus was just as awesome and full of flavors.

I believe this is a closely knitted family business as everyone was so friendly and busy at the same time. I managed to get a glimpse of Aunty Christina in the kitchen busy preparing and cooking her dishes. All hands on by herself.

Poached chicken

What makes the meal here utterly delicious is the thick blended ginger that is almost like a paste mixed with chopped spring onions and also the chilly sauce to go with the poached chicken. Heavenly combination.

Pangkor Fried Fish

This house specialty of the deep fried fish is actually the Cencaru fish stuffed with generous amount of sambal belacan. I am a big fan for ‘kampung’ fish, it is a must eat if you are here. Fortunately for us you managed to secure the last piece for the day.

The Nasi Lemak

Bumbung is located in the alley right beside S.E.A Park Maybank  The alley is lighted up with fluorescent light and surprisingly there’s no weirdie smell and its very clean.

All Malaysian should know what is Nasi Lemak and this place is famous for it.

The sambal is not spicy and a little sweet in it, suitable for those who don’t like spicy. The egg they prepared is ”Mata Kerbau” sunny side up egg instead of hard boiled egg. Finally, the fried chicken, fried till golden brown, crispy at the outside, juicy in the inside, a lot spices flavor in it. Last but not least, served hot on a plate with a piece of banana leave to enhance the flavor of the rice and a little bit of cucumber slices, peanuts & ikan bilis.

murni2

This is one of the most happening Mamak restaurant in Klang Valley, caters to hundreds of people every single day and night. Murni has the most extensive and impressive mamak menu in existence from roti biasa to roti Hawaii and origins of Chinese, Malay and Western.

Besides the good food at Murni, they have awesome drinks too!

SS2 Murni Restaurant is one of the favourite hang out place for students around PJ area and in particular the University Malaya students. I know because I was there with one.

Prepare to wait long-long for a place to seat if you come after sunset and parking is horrendous too. I chose to come to eat here just before the lunch crowd arrives. The service is fast and the food portion are huge.  We ate the Nasi Lemak Murni Discovery. It comes with a whole chicken thigh, deliciously flavoured and juicy, accompanied by spicy sambal with petai, cuttlefish and prawn, roasted peanuts and cucumber slices, served with steamed coconut rice. We also ordered the Claypot Loh Shi Fun.

The famous Soong Kee Beef Noodles from Jalan Tun HS Lee(Jalan Silang), KL has opened a branch in SS2. This place is famous for their dry version of beef noodles but I prefer the soupy type. The broth is just nice and not so overpowering with the tenderness of the beef slices and the springy beef balls.

My side order was a plate of soft beef tendon which was just awesome and practically melts in your mouth. My kind of food!

Authentic South Indian cuisine.

A banana leaf loaded with vegetables, curries, achar,papadam and fluffy white rice is probably the epitome of a satisfying meal.

“To me, it has to have a well-cooked rice, crunchy pappadam, fish curry and fried bitter gourd.”

To me the meal is not exactly cheap but it was quite good.

Most customers prefer their famous kolo mee but this place that specialises in all kinds of Sarawak noodles definitely has my vote for serving one of the best kway chap in the Klang Valley. Slurp down the addictive dark brown broth packed with flavour that is sprinkled with shallot crisps for extra umami. A bowl is packed with innards like intestines, heart and ear, thinly-sliced pork belly, all chopped into bite-sized pieces.  Even the broad rice noodles are excellent with an unbeatable silky smooth texture. The bowl of noodles is also served at the perfect piping hot temperature for you to slurp it all down without feeling that it’s too rich-tasting.
