Tomyam Kelapa Special (Special Coconut Tomyam) at Jalan Helang, Puchong Jaya

I love tom yam and I know many others out there love to eat tom yam too. If you are living in Malaysia, tom yam can be found at almost everywhere. From famous Thai food outlet, food court and street stall.

What so good about tom yam? For me, I love the clear broth, the spiciness and the freshness of the ingredients. In some articles that I previously read said that tom yam is good to heal flu, fever and for detoxification. So why need to pay so expensive when you get fever if you can sip a big bowl of tom yam soup right? Or you purposely wanna get MC from doctor the next day. Hahaha

Okaylah. Before I'm talking rubbish, let me straight to the topic of my 1st entry for October month. 

My housemate love tom yam too. That day I am so lazy to cook. So, I recalled that there is a row of Malay stalls located at Jalan Helang in Puchong Jaya. I told Chris that maybe we should check the place since the best tom yam should be made by Malay Kelantanese/Siamese (which is where the stall located).

First time here, there are 5 or 6 other stalls here. But I am more interested with a stall with big signage JR Tom Yam Seafood with main menu, Tom Yam Kelapa Special (Special Coconut Tom yam). 

Without any hesitation, we ordered the a serving of Special Coconut Tom Yam, 2 servings of extra spicy Kampung Fried Rice and omelette.

The food be served to our table in less than 15 minutes and we are very exited to look what is inside that 'coconut tomyam bowl'. Purely seafoods with prawns and squid. To make it special, there are some scrapped coconut flesh at the bottom of the coconut tom yam bowl. I love it, and my housemate love it too. Love the spiciness, the sweetness and the freshness of tom yam broth. I just hoping to have a bigger size of prawn for this tom yam dish since the price is RM12. But its okay. This is a good start actually. Me and my housemate are very eager to check other tom yam at other places in near future.

Oh ya. How about the Kampung Fried Rice? I love the crispiness of the dried anchovies in the fried rice. It makes the fried rice authentic and really tasty.

My Unforgettable Red Velvet Muffin from Chocolate World, Pavilion KL

Its soft, its smell good and its melt in your mouth. That is what I can describe about the Red Velvet Muffin that I recently bought from Chocolate World at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur. 

The outlet is located next to the Food Republic and was care by a young Malay girl. At first, we never though of buying anything there. We were just browsing at their chill glass chocolate display and the girl start to greet us and give us many free tasting for their cookies and chocolate bites. 

According to the girl, all the bites here were made with chocolate which was imported from Belgium. Well, that answered by it is so great taste. While she entertaining other customers, we turn to the other side of her kiosk and saw the rows of fresh muffin. No hesitation, my housemate love everything made with the name of red velvet and we finally bought a large Red Velvet Muffin which we will eat it in the cinema later. 

I never eat Red Velvet Muffin before. But I think this one is great. Its melt in mouth and very light. Not a very sweet version, but truly a temptation. 

Will come back again here. For their Belgian chocolate, marshmallow and macaroon too. 

Get Impressed with the Impressed, Nu Sentral, Kuala Lumpur

I was at La Juiceria on last July to try their cold pressed juice. If you want to know what is cold pressed juice? please go ahead to my previous entry about it. 

Me and my housemate were on our way to Bukit Bintang and we dropped by to Nu Sentral before hopping to KL Monorail to continue our journey. Then, my housemate were pointing to the La Juiceria and suggesting for Cold Pressed Juice to cool down ourselves during the heat of the hazy KL. 

But then, I remembered my ex-colleague whom currently working in Nu Sentral management office told me that there is a Bumiputra own Cold Pressed Jucie outlet located at the same floor which called Impressed. So, we change our mind from La Juiceria to Impressed. 

Impressed do serve limited choice of Cold Pressed Juice, but I love the simplicity on the menu. The staff suggested to us to take I4 in the juice menu which is consisted of watermelon, carrot, orange, green apple & pineapple. The stated benefit was anti inflammatory, to lower the cholesterol level and hydrating.

For another bottle, the staff suggested to get I1 which consisted of green apple and carrot which is good to fight high cholesterol, reduce risk of diabetes and aid eye vision. 

I love it cold, I love it fresh. What so good about this pressed juice is, it consisted of NO preservative, no added water and no added sugar. How great was that?

So, if you ever need a cold pressed juice and on transit at KL Sentral/Nu Sentral, do drop by to this Impressed outlet to experience this alternative healthy beverages.

My Fun-Craving Dinner at Franco Restaurant, Avenue K

Hi everyone, 

It has been awhile since my last posting in this blog. Before that, Happy October to all. Thats mean, we will have 2 more months before year 2016 and year end holiday time. I wish to complete my backdated blog writing before its too late. Perhaps I need to swiftly write a new entry after my eating out or activities. 

I was craving for Franco's since few months ago since I have to pass by the restaurant at old wing of One Utama Shopping Centre when walking to my office. I followed their Facebook Franco Malaysia and the IG: Franco Malaysia and been tempted with their food photos and promotion during their regular udpates. This experience was at their another outlet which is located in Avenue K, Kuala Lumpur. 

Franco do serve a fine casual French Japanese cuisine for the diners. The menu was limited but stunningly tempting. I think it is good to be specialize like this rather than presenting a whole book of menu but fail to deliver the best taste. This is what I like about Franco at first place, simplicity and focus the choice of foods.

There are 2 foods that actually triggered my eyes, the Squid Ink Pasta & the Squid Ink Rice. But I am not ready yet to taste it, so I play safe this time by ordering something which sounded familiar to our dining experience. So, we ordered a serving of Spaghetti Arabiatta, Chicken Teriyaki Rice, a Salad and a Vanilla Souffle for dessert. 

The Chicken Teriyaki Rice was sent hot to our table first and followed by the Salad. I love the rice and the chicken. The teriyaki chicken taste good and well marinated. I love the doneness of the rice and great to have the omelette on top of the rice serving which make the serving taste and look even better. 

It is good to have the Chicken Teriyaki Rice with the salad too. The salad consisted of soft tofu, white radish (I guess), seaweed strips, cucumber and lettuce. It was cold and uhmmmm.... super good. Really nice to compliment the deliciousness of the rice dish.

How about my Spaghetti Arabiatta? Its all about fresh meal. I'm not sure if the pasta was freshly made. I love the sauce of course and the pasta was well seasoned too. I must be silly if I don't lick the whole plate. Hahaha. 

At first, we plan to have our dessert somewhere else. But since our first 3 meals was great, we asked the waiter for the menu and we ordered the Vanilla Souffle. Trust me its hot, crispy outside, sweet and hot inside. Love it and I think I should learn how to make it at home.

In terms of the service here? Its all quick and the staffs at Franco Avenue K were very attentive. They greet us, they direct us to our table, the menu came right away, and the foods was served minutes after ordering. Definitely love the lighting and adore theor industrial concept of dining area. Love the cleanliness and love the choice of music too. Price wise? Well, you will think it worth your spending here. Truly affordable. 

Will I come back here? It is definitely yes. Thank you Franco from your happy customers, Danial & Chris.
