May King Lam Mee @ Pudu

My friend mum wants to have Chinese food for lunch. Therefore, we decided to have our lunch at May King Lam Mee. It’s recommended by one of my friends for their Lam Mee and she commented it tasted good. May King Lam Mee is located at Jalan Sew, Pudu. It was crowded when we arrived at 2pm therefore we find our own place to sit. Once seated the staff gave us the menu. You have to write down your own order in the order sheet and pass it to the staff. He double checks our order before passing it to the kitchen. We ordered Lam Mee and Fried Dumpling. The ambiance of the place was good to enjoy a quick meal. 

Lam Mee tastes good and the portion is really big that I couldn’t finish it. 
Fried Dumpling was so-so, it tastes salty to my likings and they were a little chewier rather than crunchy. 
Overall, it was a good lunch for us. Foods was okay and not something extraordinary though. The total bill was about RM 43 including 2 Lam Mee, Dry Gravy Noodle, Ipoh  Hor Fun and Drinks.

My sister and I planned to have our late lunch at Moobaan Thai however, it was closed when we arrived at 4.30pm. Therefore, we ask the staff about the operating hours for dinner and she said they will be open at 5.30pm. Thus, we planned to have our coffee at Encore while waiting for the restaurant to open.

Flat white has a strong coffee flavor and it goes perfectly well with the croissant.

Fatt Kee Roast Fish (Ah Fa Roast Fish) @ Pudu

When all the Seafood lovers meet up for dinner, it has to be seafood Restaurant right. Therefore, we decided to have our dinner at Fatt Kee Roast Fish that is located at Jalan Pasar, Pudu. We were greeted at the entrance and the staff let us to choose our place. They have both indoor and outdoor seating. We choose indoor (Air-Condition). Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. After browsing through the menu, we ordered Set RM 99 but the staff recommends us to order their RM 148 Set as it comes with whole fish rather than Set RM 99 which is only served with fish head. We followed her recommendation and took RM 148 set and spicy level (B). She recommended to us to go for spicy level (A) or (B) first as it will be super spicy and if it's not enough spicy, they will add on spicy soup later. It was crowded when we arrived at 8.45pm and it's filling up too. The crowd started to slow down around 10pm. The ambiance was place was good to enjoy the food.
Guys, love to have it with beer. 
Qing Dao @ RM15
It was damn spicy yet it's so addictive that we finished it off everything from the plate. It comes with 1 Whole Fish, 1 Jumbo Prawn, 2 Large Prawn, Few Squid Rings and a lot of Lala, Taugeh, Radish and Chili. My advise is to go for their spicy level (A) to be on the safe side, if it's not enough spicy then add on spicy soup later on. 
Set RM 148 
  We add on additional fried egg as it helps us to neutralize the spiciness.
 Fried Egg @ RM 10
Overall, it was damn good dinner for us. Excellent service and damn spicy food. Second visit? A big YES for me, but I will go for their spicy level (A) in the future. They don't provide any tissue and it cost RM 1 for 2 packets of tissues. Prepare your own tissue before dropping by this place for dinner.

VM (Victory Monument) Boat Noodle @ SS2

Myself and my sister were hungry, our fault skipping lunch to do assignments. Therefore, we decided to have our late lunch at KFC, SS2. However, on our way to KFC we passby VM Boat Noodle and we were attracted by their food choices. Therefore, we change our mind to have lunch at VM Boat noodle. VM Boat Noodle is located at SS2 (Same row with KFC). We were greeted by the staff at the entrance  and we find our own place to sit. Once seated, she gave us menu and explained about their popular food choices in the restaurant. It was raining outside and we wanted to have something soupy. We ordered Clear Soup Spicy Pork and Traditional Pork Noodle which is one of their popular dish in the restaurant. It was empty when we arrived at 4.30pm therefore I had chance to have a small talk with the staff. She told me that VM Boat Noodle is a direct branch from Bangkok and it has been around SS2 for more than 2 years. That bad!! I never even know about their existence although I always drop by KFC, SS2. She said they serve both Malaysian and Thailand Food to accommodate malaysian customer. 

Clear Soup Spicy Pork was tasty as well. 
Clear Soup Spicy Pork @ RM 9.90
Traditional Pork Noodle was delicious. The soup tastes sweet and the noodle was smooth. It's different from the pork you get from any hawker stall because VM’s version of pork noodle doenst have black pepper in it. 
Traditional Pork Noodle with additional egg @ RM 8.40 
Overall, it was a delicious lunch that both of us loved it. We finished it off everything from the bowl. Yeah!! It's that good. Excellent service and delicious food. Second Visit? A big YES for me.

It was full house when we arrived at 8.15pm on Friday night. Therefore, we have to wait for our turn. After waited for 15 minutes or so, we finally sat down and then the staff gave us the menu. After flipping through the menu, we ordered 2 Quarter Chicken, Ice Lemon Tea and Potato Wedges (R). It tooks about 20 minutes to get our food and drinks. The environment was similar to other Nando's outlets.

My favorite is the 1/4 Chicken and potato wedges, perfectly done. Delicious!! Spicy Rice was so-so, I should have ordered their Mediterranean Rice.
Hot Peri- Peri Chicken @ RM 20.80
The Peri-Peri Chicken was yum yum and it's my all-time favorite.

Daorae Korean BBQ Restaurant @ Sri Petaling

Daorae, is recommended by his friend to my brother and he wants to try it. Therefore, we went there for dinner. Doarae is located at Jalan Radin Anum, Sri Petaling. I have been to Doarae Korean BBQ Restaurant SS2, Desa Sri Hartamas and De Garden (Ipoh) and I was satisfied with the foods. We were greeted at the entrance and we find our own place to sit. Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. After browsing through the menu, I ordered Kimchi –Jeongol (L) and Dolsot Bibimbab. A couple of people occupied the restaurant when we arrived at 8.40pm but its fillin up too. The ambiance of the place was comfortable and good to dine-in. We choose Korean Style seating during our visit.

 Steamed Egg was light and tasty. Banchan was tasty. I loved their Anchovies with peanuts and pancake the most.

Kimchi- Jeongol (L) was damn good. All of us loved it. I thought it wouldn’t be enough for 3 adults but I was wrong. Its more than enough for 3 adults. Kimchi- Jeongol has rich flavour with generous servings of pork and topokki rice cake. My favourite in Doarae now!! 
Kimchi- Jeongol (L) @ RM 78

Dolsot- bibimbab was good but it would be nice if it’s served with more sauce. I should have requested it while ordering. Probably, during my next visit. 
Dolsot- bibimbab @ RM 24
Overall, it was a good dinner for us. The drawback is I found its quite difficult to communicate with the staff and our Banchan is not served after we ordered our foods and I have to request it from the staff after waited about 10 minutes.

Underground Société @ Bandar Sunway

It’s in my must try list for quite some time, I rarely go Bandar Sunway other than Shopping at Sunway pyramid Mall but recently I gotta go to settle my things. Hence, I decided to drop by Underground Societe for dessert. Underground Societe is located just a few streets away from Sunway University. Once I step-in the café, I saw a lovely decoration at the entrance and that’s all. Myself and my sister were confused with the entrance access until someone from the café opened the tiny door at the corner of the room. So, look for the door around the right corner that leads to the café. We were not acknowledged by the staff, although the café is just occupied by 1 table. We find our own place to sit. Once seated, the staff gave us the menu. I ordered Fireball, which my sole purpose of the visit. The ambiance of the café looks a kinda dull to me.  
Outfit
Formal Shirt: H&M
Skirt: Arrow (Parkson)

Fireball, the presentation was gorgeous with the fire, however the taste is not as good as it presented. It tasted so-so.
Overall, it was a so-so dessert. I think not all the lovely decorated desserts will taste as good as it looks. Service needs some serious improvement that I have to wait 5 minutes to get my water refilled that too after I walked over to their counter and requested personally. It cost me RM 21 or so for the dessert.
