Surisit Thai Kopitiam

>> Saturday, April 28, 2012

Overall comment: Good thai food at an affordable price :)
Halal: No

Few days back, my colleagues & I had lunch at Surisit, a Thai kopitiam located at Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI). The kopitiam looks like a humble-looking eatery that doesn't offer anything fancy, but to my pleasant surprise, the "humble-looking" food served were really satisfying :)

Surisit is opened for breakfast through dinner. As with most eateries, they offer a good variety of set lunches to satisfy the palette of hungry lunch-hour workers :)

Most of their set lunches come with a drink or you can do an add-on for half the usual price displayed on their menu.

 My lunch: Phat Krapao Moo Sap (RM7.90/set)
It's actually stir-fried minced pork with basil served with white rice & a fried egg. I loved it! The minced pork was really fragrant & quite spicy for me, but it was just some comfort-food for the PerutBesi :) With this set, I could order a drink for RM3.90 instead of the usual RM7.90.

 Another dish in the lunch set: Belacan Fried Rice (RM7.90/set)
This didn't look like a fried rice, but once you mix the ingredients together, it's actually quite fragrant.

Thai-Style Fried Kuey Teow
One of my colleagues had this - it looks really interesting! But it's slightly sweet; something that I won't really fancy :S

Set lunch of the month: Phat Krapao Moo Sap (RM14.90/set)
This set comes with a drink & although it's the same thing as what I had that day, the egg is served as an omelette instead of a fried bull's eye egg.

Set lunch: Tom Yam Kung Noodles (RM7.90/set)
Spicy & sour - very appetizing! Yums :D 

Pee Kai Yat Sai (RM4.90/piece)
Deep-fried chicken wings stuffed with minced chicken & prawns - quite interesting & the taste was satisfying.

Tub Tim Krob (RM6.90/serving)
I find this too sweet for my liking & the red rubies were slightly too soft. I prefer it firmer.

I won't mind going there again for meals. The only set-back is the availability of parking spaces, which are quite limited. I hope to try out their other dishes in my next visit :D

Home-Made Paratha Chicken Wrap

>> Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Ever thought of wraps with instant paratha? Yes, INSTANT! Haha...I didn't have any pita bread/sandwich bread/buns in stock, so for lunch today, with all the stock of chicken & vegetables that I have in the freezer (and whatever that I can find in the fridge), I decided to do something different instead of the usual chops, pasta, or stir-fries.

You can actually improvise & do whatever you want, put whatever you fancy, into your wrap :D

Paratha wrap with chicken filling!
Colourful & yummilicious :D

1 piece of chicken breast meat, sliced into thick strips & marinated with salt, pepper, some Italian mixed herbs, & corn flour
1 piece of instant roti paratha, defrosted (you can get this from the supermarket)
Carrots, thin slices/shreds/strips
1/2 a medium tomato, sliced into strips
1/2 a green apple, sliced into thin slices
Spring onions, chopped
Fresh mint leaves, chopped finely
Parsley, chopped finely
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise
Chili/Chilli sauce (optional)
Slice of cheddar cheese (optional)

Mayonnaise mixture:
1. Combine mayonnaise, mint leaves, parsley, pepper & salt to taste.
2. Drizzle some honey for a touch of sweetness & fragrance. Mix well.

Simple directions:
1. Pan-fry instant paratha without oil 'til both sides are golden brown. Leave aside on a plate for it to cool.
2. Heat oil  in pan & pan-fry chicken 'til golden brown.
3. Remove chicken from pan.
4. Spread the mayonnaise mix onto the paratha.
5. Arrange chicken strips on top of the mayonnaise spread.
6. Pile up the wrap with the rest of the ingredients prepared i.e. carrots, tomatoes, apples, spring onions, cheese & squeeze some chilli sauce over.
7. Wrap the ingredients up with the paratha & your meal is ready to be enjoyed! :D

Having loads of fun in the kitchen,


Home-Made Pan-Fried Chicken Chop

I bought RM20 worth of chicken breast meat from the market last Saturday, in hopes to stock up my supply for the whole week. I basically spent a lot at the Section 17 market getting vegetables, dried ingredients, & chicken, just to have the fridge loaded with food for my meals this week :)

Last night, I decided very randomly, to cook up some pan-fried chicken breast meat with some wedges & vegetables as sides. It was GOOD! :D

Note: Photo quality isn't that good cos it's taken with my phone camera :(

Ingredients for chicken:
1 piece of chicken breast meat - cleaned & non-marinated
1 -2 teaspoonful of corn flour
Italian mixed-herbs
Soya sauce
Sesame seed oil

Ingredients for the onion-mushroom sauce:
Fresh button mushrooms, chopped (if you don't have those, you can use the dried Chinese black mushrooms, soaked)
1 small yellow onion, chopped finely
1/2 teaspoon of chopped garlic

Ingredients for sides:
1 medium-sized potato, sliced into wedges with skin
Few small "stalks" of broccoli - just blanch & season with some salt
5-10 French beans
Butter (as cooking oil)

Preparation for the chicken breast meat:
1. Using the back of your knife, chop the chicken breast meat until it looks "loosened" (not so "thick" & "stiff"). This will ensure the breast meat turns out tender!
2. Marinate with soya sauce/salt, pepper, some sesame seed oil, & some Italian mixed-herbs. The sesame seed oil will give the meat a fragrant "toasted" smell.
3. Add the corn flour to the marinated chicken & mix well to ensure the whole piece of meat is well coated. Leave the chicken breast meat to marinate for a while & move on to prepare the rest of the ingredients.

Directions for the chicken + sauce:
1. Heat pan over medium flame.
2. Add 1 - 2 teaspoons of butter.
3. Once butter has melted (before it turns brown!), place the chicken breast meat onto the hot pan. Lower the flame if required & allow the chicken meat to cook until you can see the bottom-half of the chicken turning white/not-raw.
4. Place the wedges at the sides of the pan & allow the potatoes to cook until you see the sides browning.
5. Flip the chicken & allow the other side of the chicken to cook/brown.
6. Flip the wedges whenever you see it browning. Allow both chicken & wedges to cook thoroughly.
7. Once chicken/wedges are cooked or nicely brown (it should be cooked if it's nicely brown), remove from pan.
8. Add another teaspoon of butter & allow to melt.
9. Place French beans on the hot pan & allow to cook. Once cooked (it will be slightly crinkly & in darker green), remove from heat.
10. Add the garlic & onions, stir-frying both ingredients 'til they're caramelized.
11. Add in the chopped mushrooms & stir-fry for about 2 minutes.
12. Add sufficient water into the pan. This will be the gravy for the chicken.
13. Dilute some corn starch & pour it into the gravy, stirring the gravy as you pour the corn starch.
14. Once the consistency/thickness of the sauce is as per what you desire, bring the sauce to boil & turn of flame.
15. Arrange your cooked items & pour the gravy over the meat. Season wedges with salt.

- Bon apetit! -

On a chicken-cooking spree,


South Sea Seafood Restaurant

Venue: Kampung Baru Subang, area behind Subang airport
Occasion: Mum's birthday dinner
Overall comment: Fresh seafood that tastes pretty good. Prices are slightly steep, especially the fish. If you're willing to spend for good food, this is quite a good place for fresh seafood; if not, there are other better options.
Halal: Yes

This place is so near where I stay, but we've never really been here - all because we're creatures of habit who dine at the same few restaurants every other day & also because we usually have our meals "outside" before we head home.

Last Sunday was my mum's birthday. Thus, my dad decided that we should try this place out since mum has been mentioning of about trying this place out. This restaurant has gone through much re-branding since it begun. I could still remember it was just a quiet "shack-like" restaurant without much crowd around 10+ years ago, along with some gigantic prawn/crab right outside its entrance...well, the crowd wasn't like last Sunday's!

People waiting outside the restaurant during dinner time 

Member's Privileges
I didn't know that such a place would even have membership cards! Wow... 

Dad waiting patiently for a table
As we were there around 8+pm, the crowd was just crazee...SO MANY people! I wouldn't have imagined it. Thankfully, there were only 4 of us in a family, so we didn't need to wait that long for people to eat & leave :D 

LOADS of fresh seafood
It's like a whole exhibit of sea creatures, waiting to be served on the meal table *sobs* As a consolation, all seafood served here would most probably be fresh...

We didn't need to wait that long for our food to arrive. In the mean time, we just enjoyed our coconut drink & caught up with each other ;)

Steamed Sea Grouper (RM106.00)
When the bill arrived after our meal, I saw the price & was actually shocked! The fish wasn't that large, okay? But it was fresh. I felt it was slightly over-steamed, but it's still acceptable. Taste & texture is still good...but the price...oh my, I really didn't expect it :S Lesson learned, ask for the prices per kg before ordering. The waitress recommended Sea Grouper, some other grouper (that sounded even more expensive), & "Soon Hock", which we assumed was even more costly...yikes...if it's on a normal dinner meal, I would have felt the pinch real bad...hahaha...

Tiger Prawns in Herbal Stock + Wine (RM40.00)
There were only 9 prawns & it's really lacking in wine. Perhaps it's because this place is a halal one, thus there's no wine (although the waitress said there is). I wish there was more soup, but I was actually quite pleased with this dish. The prawns were very fresh & the texture was just right - springy/crunchy :D 

Dips for the prawns
I prefer to eat the prawns just as it is...but the "dark-coloured" dip, which has "mui choy" in it, tastes really unique & nice! 

Stir-Fried "Yau Mak"/Romaine Lettuce (RM13.00)
Fresh & crisp! Just the way we liked it :) But yes, for the portion served, it is quite expensive... 

Cheese-Baked Oysters (RM32.00 - RM8/oyster)
I thought the oysters that I saw in the tank weren't this expensive...hahaha...must be the additional cost for cooking :P Overall this was okay...I expected more to it...it was over-powering with garlic in the cheese though :S 

Birthday Noodles/"Sau Meen" (RM28.00)
Taste was good, portion was quite generous for the 4 of us to finish up - overall, quite a good plate of birthday noodles :) 

Birthday-girl :)

My home-baked peach cake with yoghurt
Moist vanilla cake with peaches & yoghurt, instead of cream ;) 
Cake recipe taken from: Amazing Easy Recipes

Family photo taken by some waiter...came out blur =.=" 

Will I dine at South Sea again? I won't mind, providing I'm feeling rich! Hahaha...for this sort of quality & taste, if not for the price, I would actually frequent this restaurant. But because the price is quite steep, I've other restaurants on my list that I would consider first :)

The Ruthless Eater,


Home Made Fish Head Noodle, Mid Valley

>> Friday, April 20, 2012

Overall comment: Decent fish head noodles although prices are slightly higher due to the location.
Halal: Yes

My colleagues & I were at Mid Valley one day for lunch & one of my colleagues suggested to have lunch at this place. I've never had fish head noodles at Mid Valley & would never have thought of having it, but I'm quite a sucker for such noodles - I HAD to try it. The most important "element" for a good fish head noodle, in my humble opinion, is the soup - whether or not is has the "kick"/umph! I'll usually request for additional wine to be added into my soup :D

Apparently, Home Made Fish Head Noodle has 3 branches: Mid Valley, SS15 Subang, & Kota Damansara. I'm SO ignorant towards such mushrooming outlets; I think I've slowly evolved into a somewhat lazy, ignorant, & habitual creature :S

Ms Soo's 3-layers-tea

This restaurant offers a wide variety of fish head/paste mee hoon & they even go to the extend of serving the same soup with yee mee! Erm...I've yet to pick up my courage to try that out. If you're not a noodles fan, there's also porridge & rice of all sorts!

Here's what we ordered:

Mr Tan's Fish Paste Mee Hoon with XO Sauce (RM11.80/bowl)
I didn't realize the soup would be slightly spicy & has so much more oil compared to the normal fish paste noodles. You can taste a bit of the XO sauce, but I think it's not that generous. Mr Tan found the taste slightly peculiar...but I felt it was still acceptable to my palatte.

Ms Soo's/Cham's/Ma's Fish Head Mee Hoon (RM9.80/bowl)
Soup is pretty fragrant; milkish & slightly sourish because of the tomatoes & salted/pickled vegetables ("ham choy"). The fish pieces were also nicely deep-fried to give it a slight crisp on the outside.

My Fish Head Mee Hoon with XO Sauce (RM11.80/bowl)
As you can see, it resembles a curry laksa. I was quite surprised when I first saw it...and wasn't very excited as well. But thank goodness it tasted alright. I still prefer the usual fish head noodles at the Shangri-la coffeeshop at Jalan Batai near office & the Wing Soon one in Puchong. Feel more "authentic".

If you're craving for some good noodles (and maybe rice) while at Mid Valley, I think this is a good option compared to other restaurants in the mall. The crowd here during office lunch hour can be crazy though...best to be there earlier to get a seat, else you'll just have to wait outside & waste some time waiting just to get your meal.

Wallop Burger, SS2

>> Wednesday, April 18, 2012

Overall comment: Good pork burger at an acceptable price. Must try if you're a "simple pork burger" lover :)
Halal: No

Wallop Burger is one of the newest pork burger outlets in town. It has been around for probably half a year now & is strategically located at SS2 Chow Yang area, on the same row as the newly renovated Ho Ho Sek Food Court (previously known as the Chow Yang coffeeshop, behind Kayu Nasi Kandar).

Piggies Everywhere
As at every other porky place, you'll see a whole collection of piggies in various shapes & sizes. Wallop Burger showcases their range at their counter...heehee...

Simple Menu
There are only 4 types of ala carte burgers & 2 types of combo meals: doesn't take that much time to decide ;)

Discount for Students
The outlet also offers free wifi & 10% off for students. They've removed their "Happy Hour" promotion though :(

I've passed by this outlet numerous times, but it was only recently that I managed to grab a pork burger from this outlet & yup, walloped it up! :D My colleagues who were with me were also quite pleased with their burgers. It's certainly larger in size as compared to Ninja Joe's, but the patty is not THAT thick compared to the processed McD's burgers...hahaha...on the overall, this burger is still WAY better than "processed-meat" burgers - nutrition & texture wise ;)

You can even "build your own burger" by adding on various ingredients available.

What we had...

Our lunch for that day :P Yums! 

As mentioned, there are 4 types of burgers at Wallop Burger:
1. Mamma Wallop (RM6.00)
Single patty with lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, cheese

2. Papa Wallop (RM9.80)
Double patties with lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, cheese

3. Sergeant Wallop (RM12.80)
Triple patties with lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, cheese

4. Hot Boy (RM10.80)
Double patties (spicy) with lettuce, tomato, onions, mayonnaise, cheese

5. Combo Meals
* Only available for Mama Wallop (RM9.50) & Papa Wallop (RM12.80). Combo meals consists of a burger, french fries, & a soft drink.

Ms Soo's Hot Boy + Mushrooms
There's no combo set for Hot Boy, so boohoo...you'll have to go ala carte.

Pork patties were juicy! *yums*

Mr Tan's Mama Wallop + Bacon
He said he can't really taste the bacon...awww...

PerutBesi's Mama Wallop!

With added mushrooms!
I love mushrooms...

Juicy, not-too-fine patty
I enjoyed the juicy & flavourful pork patty in between soft, warm buns. It's not the usual "Ramly burger" buns! Woots! I wish the patty was thicker & have more "bite", but for RM6.00, this is as much as you can get :)

I love "fat fries" too...
Not too thin: thick-cut french fries - crispy on the outside, soft & "powdery" on the inside.

I certainly won't mind popping here from time to time when I've cravings for pork burger & I just wanna spend less than RM10 to get my cravings satisfied ;)
