A Cantonese Affair at Tai Zi Heen Prince Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Peking Duck
Preparing A Peking Duck

Early this month of November I was back at Tai Zi Heen to have myself indulging their remarkable Peking Duck. Not only it was deliciously well prepared Peking Duck, I had it only for RM1. It was such a great offer. All I did was to reserved a table with a minimum spending of RM300. I was lucky too as it was only for the first 8 dinner reservation nightly.

It was beautifully roasted and looked so crispy. The carving was truly attentive during the serving of the Peking Duck. Every skin was very perfectly calculated and sliced. The crisp skin of the Peking Duck was placed on the light thin pancake before rolling into a gigar like shape, together with match cucumber slice, spring onion and homemade hoi sin sauce. A bit into it was truly gorgeous, it was fragrant and tasty. I just loved it.

SAGANO Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel MIGF

sagano

SAGANO was my first Japanese restaurant to visit on my MIGF list, a very simple elegant with a home feel flush decorated restaurant, very comfortable indeed. This restaurant is located at the Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel and with Chef Yastoshi Ito’s Japanese authentic, innovative and meticulously prepared culinary creations to indulge the diners. That night we were there to taste his creation and to be more authentic in culture we decidedd not to pair the festival signature creations with the picked wines but we have them with the in-house selected sake instead. I had been noted for my sharp taste in Japanese food amount my Japanese friend in Kyoto and I just can’t wait to indulge into Chef Yasutoshi Ito’s creations.

A Grand Vegetarian Dining

We had been to one branch of Nature’s Vegetarian Restaurant before and were very impressed with the food served. The last time, we were invited by our vegetarian friends from Klang to have a Chinese New Year dim sum dinner with them. That dinner was incredible awesome and even now I still have those fresh flashing memory of the food I had. This time we got the chance to try out their main outlet at Bangsar, flushed along the famous Jalan Telawi.

As we stepped into this restaurant, I was totally impressed with the deco, the place was filled with beautiful and elegant rosewood tables and chairs with beautifully embedded designs crafted with the mother of pearl. I felt I was in a Chinese emperor’s dining room. Not only that, the place was filled with beautiful Chinese sculptures and was place elegantly.

Once we were at our table, we were served with a pot of fragrant Chinese tea, deliciously crunchy seaweed crackers and juicy sliced pineapple topped with satay sauce.

DSCN3170

This time we wanted to have something simple, more homely type of dinner and we ordered a few vegetarian dishes. We ordered Hong Kong vegetarian meat “char siew”, curry mutton with bread, sweet & sour meat, steam silky tofu with melon, house special noodle “chew pai mein” and Cantonese style “yeng yong” noodle.

DSCN3179

The vegetarian ‘char siew’ was really good, at the right sweetness and just taste like real meat but would prefer a larger cut.

DSCN3157

Both noodle dishes were tasty and full of “wok hei”, a thumb up to the chef (Chef Ong)! Look at our feast of the day!

DSCN3148

The sauce of the sweet and sour dish was delicious as the taste was well spot on, the meat was tasty too, good combination. I also adore the crispiness of the soya meat used in this dish.

DSCN3144

The curry mutton was really good and texture of the soya meat was really good and the curry sauce really complimented the dish.

DSCN3133

Next the tofu melon dish, the tofu was silky and the melon was well cooked, soft and juicy. The dish was tasty with the delicious light brown sauce.

DSCN3185

By the time when we were about to finish the feast, Mr Alex Ong the owner insisted we try some dim sum and he ordered curry bun, “mut jup char siew bao”, “kum kwai ko” and “fong wor woo kok”. The “char siew bao” was good, the dough was soft, fluffy and the delicious “char siew” sauce just melts in your mouth. The “ woo kok” was so crispy indeed and the fillings was awesomely delicious. The curry bun was good too, very soft bun texture. The “kum kwai ko” was nice filled with lotus paste.

I got to say this is a very inspired vegetarian delight and with a huge range of dishes that will tickle your taste bud. I will definitely be back for more.

Potato King at Bangsar Sunday Night Market (Pasar Malam)

Last sunday evening I was at bangsar new village and noticed there was the sunday night market. As I walked along I stumbled into something very new that caught my eye with full of joy and excitement!

It was this Potato King! I got to inform you that this is not a normal potato wedges but it is a whole potato that caught in a bamboo stick! This is so amazing and interesting. When you look carefully at this deep fried potato wedges, you will notice that it is all intagged!


Firstly a whole potato is cut into size and place into the scapper for cutting, once done the whole potato is then placed into the bammboo stick before deep frying.

The owner, Mr Wan does all the deep frying, the potato wedges and also the chicken. I was told that he uses imported potatoes as local potatoes cannot produce the right texture. I was also informed that the deep fried potato wedges can be keep half a day and still able to retain its crispiness. Well I wonder why should I keep it till late as in a few second those potato wedges would had disappeared into my stomach. lol!




Got to say this potato wedges are excellent and delicious, the texture is perfect, crispy and with the flavouring (seaweed, cheese, black pepper, chicken & onion, plum etc) it is worth for a try. It only cost RM3.50(US1.10) a stick!

Restaurant De Hunan

I was introduced to this Hunan Restaurant by Chef Steven and was told that the dishes served here is gorgeous. I was told it is a must order for the Mao’s Pork and also the steam fish head with salted red chillies. So what I did? I step into this gorgeous eatery.


I had tasted Mao’s Pork when I visited Mao’s Restaurant in Beijing. This Mao’s Pork dish in Beijing tasted very different from what we usually get in Kuala Lumpur. It taste so soft, tasty and so succulent. Lovely! When I was at this eatery, firstly we were served with some unique tibits:

Seaweed Pickle

Lotus Root Pickle

Yummy thin slices Pig Ears


3 plates of tibits to start off with which is so delicious.

A lovely bowl of steam rice.

A skewered prawn top with black bean paste, lovely. Here we get bigger prawns but in Beijing the prawn is so micro small, lol!

“Lat Chee Kai” Hot Peppered Chilli Chicken

OMG! Mao’s Pork….authentic lovely! A must for Porkie lovers!

Pig’s Tail Claypot….. very delicious and with a touch of hot!

Oh! Lovely Hot Fish Head….. a must for hot lovers… “just like chasing the dragon”

Emperor noodles to be eaten with the fish head gravy…. fantastic!

If you are a porkie and also a fan of hot hot food, this is a place to be! Beijing on your doorstep!.
