Today was a long overdue dinner with an old friend, and wanting her to try something different, we decided on Korean food and the destination was Kimchi Haru at Subang Jaya. Having tasted the food at the Kimchi Haru outlet in Jaya One, I was quite confident that the food would be great!

That night the main dining area was actually closed for a gathering of Koreans. We were seated in a separate room at the back, which was just as cozy as the main dining area (actually cosier!). Halfway through our dinner, we were entertained by their singing accompanied by the guitar which was just lovely! The ambience and atmosphere that night suited our reunion of sort with our dear friend :-)

Well, would I recommend this place? Yes, DEFINITELY!! Their kimchi is one of the best I ever tasted, and the food is authentic Korean..Actually, am still dreaming of their BBQ Pork.. almost drooling now...haha! So to Korean food lovers out there, this is definitely the place to go! :-) :-)

Dinner @ DucKing Restaurant, Wisma Selangor Dredging, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Date: 24 March 2012
Place: DucKing Restaurant, Wisma Selangor Dredging, Jalan Ampang, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Dish: See below
Price: Sister's treat (thanks sister!)

Sister and her hubby treated us to a dinner at Ducking Restaurant at Wisma Selangor Dredging, Jalan Ampang. It was a welcomed dinner as we mostly have our family dinners in Selangor rather than Kuala Lumpur. As you walk into the restaurant, you feel like you are walking into a dining place in a hotel, and the ambience is superb.

Food-wise, I have no complaints. All the dishes we ordered tasted good. The bill was paid by sister and her hubby but I think the price is a bit on the high side. But having said that, once a while, if you want to treat yourself to a dinner with a hotel-like setting, do give this place a try :-)

Japanese Dinner - Nameko Yakimeshi, Gohan Set, Shishamo Mentai Yaki, Gyuniku Shogayaki, Salmon Toro Sashimi, @ Edo Ichi, First Subang Mall, Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia

Date: 10 March 2012
Place: Edo Ichi, First Subang, Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia
Dish: Nameko Yakimeshi (RM6), Gohan Set(RM8), Shishamo Mentai Yaki (RM6), Gyuniku Shogayaki (RM14), Salmon Toro Sashimi (RM25), Ocha (RM1)
Price: RM67.10 (Total for 2 persons incl. 6% Service Charge)

I was not feeling well today, and wanted something appetizing yet quite healthy and wholesome for dinner. A Japanese meal came to mind, and wanting to try a new place, we went to Edo Ichi at First Subang.

In summary, the Salmon Toro Sashimi & Shishamo Mentai Yaki was very good, but the rest was ok. The rice did not taste Japanese enough, and the green tea was rather lacking in the strong green tea taste that other establish Japanese eateries have.

Inspite of what I said, the restaurant is almost full with patrons today. I guess, from the very young, to the very old, everyone just loves Japanese food! And I had just what I wished for i.e. a healthy yet appetizing meal that made me feel better almost immediately! :-)

Salmon Toro Sashimi- Raw Salmon (Very Good!)

Gohan Set- Japanese Rice, with Miso Soup & Chawanmushi (OK)

Shishamo Mentai Yaki- Grilled "Willow Leaf Fish"in special sauce (Very Good!)

Gyuniku Shogayaki- Stir-Fried Beef (OK)

Date: 9 March 2012
Place: Aunty Cherrie's Kitchen Bukit Jelutong, Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia
Dish: "Curry Chicken (Indian-styled)","Tomato- Chilli Prawn ", "Stir-Fried Kailan", "Steamed Garoupa", and "Papadum"



Ah Friday nite, best day of the week..Though little tired from a long day at work, was looking forward to yet another dinner at Aunty Cherrie's kitchen :-). Sis invited me again for another dinner at their lovely home, and this time it coincided with my brother and my sis's in law visit to KL.

Aunty Cherrie's picks for the dinner were "Curry Chicken (Indian-styled)","Tomato- Chilli Prawn ", "Stir-Fried Kailan", "Steamed Garoupa", and "Papadum".

Love them all, particularly the curry chicken, prawn and papadum! I think I was last at the table trying to finish whatever I could! :-)

Note: Papadum is a thin, crisp Indian preparation sometimes described as a cracker. It is typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India. It is also eaten as an appetizer or a snack and can be eaten with various toppings such as chopped onions, chutney or other dips and condiments. In some parts of India, it is served as the final item in a meal. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papadum)
