Burma Road - New World Park

New World Park, which located on Burma Road, just beside the Tune Hotel, it is a hawker center + some shops + Starbucks + .......

Well, it is just a fast visit, so I ordered my favourites "Hokkien Mee"

3 plus 1 ais kacang

Yam cake

Bukit Tengah - Seven Village Restaurant

Taman Bayu Mutiara, a place I pass by almost every week (sometimes everyday), and keep passing by this restaurant, and yet I never think of actually pay a visit. Until one day when I logon to facebook, and saw one of my friend (where his company just upstair) post on his wall about this restaurant, and proclaim it as "famous", I was like "wow, damn"......

The name of the restaurant is actually Seven Village Noodle House (七廊果条汤), the restaurant is started in Butterworth (I guess) and this is their new branch at Bukit Tengah. I'm not sure why it is actually called as "Seven Village", maybe it is created by people from seven village, or the seller sale at seven village before or the place where the restaurant started is called seven village or.......since I never have the habit to chit chat with the owner, you'll need to find out by yourself. :P

It is quite easy to actually get to the place, if you are coming from the PLUS highway, just turn out from the JURU exit and turn left, then go straight until the traffic light, you'll see the Taman Bayu Mutiara infront of you. Go straight and then turn left into the shop houses area. Since there is only single row of shop house, just keep going to and flo until you see the restaurant. :P

The restaurant is on a corner lot, there a big mandarin yellow "seven" sign, so it is very easy to notice it.

Inside the restaurant, where the workers working on brewing the drinks you order.

The is actually nailed on the wall, shiny and classy.......never imagine that selling Koay Teow Th'ng can be so classy as well...and the most important, notice the price, so... so... kopitiam!!!

There are 2 sections of the seat, one area with air-cond and another one without. So, sure find the seat at the air-cond area lar.... neat, so clean......100 mark. :P

Nice seat, how good it will be if every kopitiam or food court also like this.

cold cold square glass - RM1.10, a sip in the mouth - priceless......

Closer look at the drink....

Now, we reach the highlight, the nice nice "loh bak" and "guang jiang". Guess, which one is which? :P
The most left is "loh bak", others are "guang jiang". When I saw "guang jiang" on the menu, I have totally no idea what is it (maybe because I'm not "Penang Lang"), when it is server, I'm still don't know what is it. And actually until today (after eating a few more times), I'm still don't know what is it. I just know it is nice and something make from glutinous rice. :P

Closer look at the "guang jiang".

"loh bak", nice nice, must try!

For the main dish, it is either the "Koay Teow Th'ng" or this ramen. They put a soft boiled egg in it together with some green veges and minced meat. So, the key is mix them all and you'll get a nice, soft and smooth ramen.

Closer look at the ramen (I love my Panasonic LX3!!!)...

The main actor of the day - "Koay Teow Th'ng"!!!!

Closer look of it.

Juru Auto City - Manhattan Fish Market

Manhattan Fish Market (MFM) is another franchise restaurant that I like. Eventhough there are 99% of the workers there are foreigners, they are always well trained. Again, I was at the Juru Auto City for a dinner as birthday celebration for my little girls (more like I want to eat the food there. :P).

I always like to visit Juru Autocity's outlet (any restaurant), the outlet there is always spacious, the waiter is always more pro (proper english, smiley face, fast services)...This is the outlook of MFM...

Once we walked in the restaurant, this is the view came into the eye, nice.....

The table setting, stated there established since 1822, woot...hmm.......I got curious, so I did a google search (of course after ate finish and back to home to search online. ;P)

Woohoo! MFM
This is one of the most powerful restaurant website I encountered before, they even have their menu and prices on the website! If you are interested with the restaurant history and story, everything is there...except the kitchen sink.

From the table, looks like MFM is in Singapore and Bangkok as well......

Standard saurce: got tartar, minced garlic and salsa, not bad not bad. Nice......
It seems like no matter what you order, these are the sauce they will put on the table.

Woot woot, pepper and salt, cute! But I still prefer ceramic type. :P

Coaster, made from wood with nice carving. Looks like the restaurant really put in lots of effort on the decoration.

Captain's Quencher - Carbonated orange twist, nice......the CO2 + Ice + Orange, it did give some kick to open up my taste buds.

Wife ordered 100 Plus, it looks just like when I ordered the same thing at the food court near my house, except the price :P

Happy wife and daughter......

Fried Calamari, nyam nyam, my favourites. The only problem is that we also ordered the "Manhattan Seafood Platter for Two" where there are also one whole row of fried calamari. So, I got a "sotong hangover" after the meal. First I feel myself like a blur sotong.......but don't get me wrong, the fried calamari is nice. :)

Manhattan Seafood Platters for Two! Got fried fish fillet, got fried oyster, got flaming prawn with cheese!!!! got butter rice and fries!!!!! Superb!!!!! But I need to warn you first, the serving is really huge......let's say if you can only eat one McChicken for one meal, that is like 4 McChicken's serving.
