JJCM : Miyagi @ Bandar Baru Bangi

Still in Japan mood so let's go makan Japanese food.

This restaurant is located in Bandar Baru Bangi and I guess it is quite famous because it was featured in Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan before.



The ambiance was great. Love its interior.








Ordered the sets and some sides.

tempura set

sashimi to saba shio/teriyaki set

tempura soba

edamame

Green tea is free and the sets come with free desserts too.

Taste wise (based on what I ordered), they are good although lacking the authentic Japanese taste.  Once, I came back from Japan and a few days after that I came here just because I missed Japanese food. It didn't taste like Japan! But now I am used to it already hahaha.

Well I guess most of halal Japanese restaurant is like that because of the ingredients. I mean they use mirin, seasonings etc in Japan and halal restaurants here have to use alternative for some of that. It's still good by Malaysian standard though.. and Japanese in Malaysia too because when I was there I saw a few Japanese dining in the restaurant.

Here's the menu.



























So many to choose from and the price is reasonable too.

All in all, I would say it is a good restaurant. Give it a try if you're in the area!

2019

Oh hai.

Happy New Year!

It's crazy how time flies soooo fast it's almost mid of February already!! 
*panicking cos in a blink of an eye it'll be 2020 fuhhhh*

I'm starting 2019 on a good term. My new year resolutions are going well so far.

* Weight loss is on track, shed off 6 kgs to get my pre raya weight hahaha. Now it's game on to shed more to get my university weight.
* Sleep early, wake up early, go to work early, go home early.
* Reduce unnecessary shopping. I didn't buy any dUCk scarves since November. Gonna use all my scarves again and again. Well.. my scarves can last me for 168 days without repeating any of the scarves (yup I've counted and to think that I've spent almost RM30K for scarves is crazy on another level). *guilty*
* Spring cleaning ala Marie Kondo. Things that do not spark joy, out you go!

And I just came back from Japan. Again! But this time, I went to areas that I've never been to which are Gifu and Nagano prefectures.  

To a better me, and to more travels this year.

JJCM : KFry Urban Korean @ Suria KLCC

Yasss!!! New outlet closer to home.

KFry KLCC opened its door on 11 December 2018, and because I am kiasu, I was there on the opening day hahaha. Dragged my sister, niece and nephews as well. 


We went during lunch time and what do you expect? It was full house. Waited in queue for about 10 minutes before we were ushered to our seats.





The menu is same as KFry IOI City Mall. Check here.

We ordered Cheesy Bumbuk Spicy Yangnyeom, Garlic Soy Wings, K'Fry Garlic Soy Chicks, K'Fries Bulgogi Beef Fries, Oreo Choco Bingsoo, Lychee Rita and Bong Bong White Grape.










We left at around 3pm and to my surprise, there's no queue at all! OK.. maybe this is the first day, but I hope it stays this way. Easier for me to go makan. Until now I can't fathom why there's always long queue at IOI City Mall (I've never been to the other outlets so not sure how it's like).

JJCM : Dean & Deluca @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Dean & Deluca, the American upscale gourmet store has finally arrived in Malaysia last August. The brand's first outlet is located in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.

Yayy! A new place to satisfy my palate.








Visited the outlet recently with a friend for our catch up session.

 I haven't had my lunch yet so hungry me ordered Aglio Olio with Salmon Belly Teriyaki. 


My friend already had his so it was only Crunchy Pecan Pie for him.



Verdict: Yummy!!



Menu.






Price is a little on the finer side but that's standard for a café in Pavilion. Good thing is, the food is equally fine and we enjoyed our meals.

Oh I got a bonus too! While we were chitchatting, I spotted cutie pie Lara Alana and her gorgeous mom Scha walking outside the café and to my delight, they came in to Dean & Deluca to buy some cakes and pastries!


Selfie time!
