♨ The Fat Fish, Mont Kiara

Whether or not you like japanese food
sashimi is undeniably an incredible beautiful food
for someone that crave for sashimi all the time

The Fat Fish @ Mont Kiara 
is the right place to go
I promise you an over-satisfied palate experience here

The Menu

Fresh seafood display

Fresh salmon cuts

and drinks

We didn't book so we waited for almost 40 minutes to get a seat
initially was quite frustrated as they promised us a seat in 30 minutes
but every empty slot after we arrived
is reserved for those who has booked earlier

so guys, the moral of the story is
it is really important

But anyway, we were given an extra table after a long wait
and immediately after the food arrived
we are all happy

the food is too good 
ineffably toothsome dish

Sashimi Cuts (Apprx RM18)

look at our food!
damn those delicate textures
vivid colours
extraordinary fresh chunks of sashimi
it is indefinable

Barachi Rashi RM25

Salmon Don RM18

and if you are not a fans of raw fishes
here's something cooked , for you to try

Garlic Cream with Smoked Salmon RM20

I'm very happy with the food 
and I'll definitely be back again!

♨ Foo Foo Fine Desserts, TTDI

It's amazing how instagram brought me to all these places
Foo Foo Fine Desserts, TTDI
one of my instagram surfing's haul

Its an exceedingly unique place
situated just above Cutter & Tailor (next to Public Bank)
with a fusion deco of minimalist x 1960's aura

Foo Foo entrance

Once we stepped into the restaurant
we were welcomed by a group of men in black tees
all looking good
such a sight haha!
me and my bff - Sabrina squealed a little when we enter the restaurant
well, where else you can get
"a bunch of good looking guys that serve good desserts" 

Them, playing Cards Against Humanity

Further into the restaurant
more sightly feast to our eyes!
love the simplicity / classic vibe given off by Foo Foo!

Flimsy looking lazy chairs

menu at it's best!
Ice creams served here are all home-made with natural ingredients 

and of course
the desserts we ordered
*drum roll*

1. Poached pear with rose petal ice cream (RM29)
Masala spiced red wine poached pear with rose petal ice cream plus walnut tuile

Poached Pear with Rose Petal Ice Cream (RM29)
 I personally like the rose petal ice cream a lot
at first I thought it will taste like normal rose syrup
but it is not!
So much more fragrant =)

but I guess its an acquired taste for my friends as they were not sure whether they like it or not
I would say it tasted really unique though


2. Passionfruit Pavlova (RM23)
Passion Pavlova with Lime Chantilly

Passion Pavlova (RM23)

Must try! 
I repeat : MUST TRY!
Unlike other pavlova
Foo Foo's Pavlova is specially made crusty outside and very soft & cottony inside!
and the best part is
they mixed white and brown sugar in making this so it won't turn out to be too sweet
good job Foo Foo!
I used to go Alexis for their Pavlova but guess what?
I found my new fave place now!


3. Bombe Alaska (RM25)
Lemon grass ice cream covered with meringue + alcohol

Bombe Alaska (RM25)
when we looked through the menu together with one of the co-founder
he mentioned this may be a bit too heavy for us
but we still order it!
I have to say, the lemon grass ice cream is damn good
(May be bias as I'm a lemon grass fans)
but for those that don't like alcohol in desserts
this may be not suitable for you =P
but worth the try though!

Other recommendations :
1. Cripsy Profiteroles with Salted Caramel Coffee Ice Cream
2. Strawberry Tart with Balsamic Vinegar Ice Cream
3. Mango Lychee Ice Cream slice with Fruit Salsa

Reminder :
If you are there to try their Almond Brioche with home-made ice cream as advertised in various instagram accounts
mind that they have changed their menu and it is no longer in it!

Dessers love me, I love desserts too!

My humble ratings :
Food : 4.5 / 5
Price : 4 / 5
Ambience : 5 / 5
Service : 5 / 5

BLVD House, Naza Tower KL Review

Introducing a new restaurant that I picked up 
during Instagram surfing (again lol)
situated in a freshly built spot in the heart of KL
near to KLCC (within walking distance)

the BLVD House
at the base of Naza Tower

I love the interior + exterior design of this restaurant
the beauty of simplicity

truly inspired me to design my own house this way in the future!

View from outside
for group dining

Bar area

even the sky juice served is artsier than me!

our tea-time bites
Mexicana Chicken Sausage Flatbread Pizza (RM35)
the crust was well done
and the pizza was really loaded with pulled chicken and sausages

Mexicana Chicken Sausage (RM35)

and the dessert 
Lemon Tart with Honey Mascarpone Cheese (RM20)

I have to say though
this is a strong sour-ish + tangy tasting tart
good for sharing =)

Lemon Tart & Honey Mascarpone Cheese (RM20)

and their staffs know how to take nice photos like this!
2 of the waiters were really all out in helping us to take photos
one in front
one from the side
Hercules thumbs up to both of you!

♨ Nasi Lemak Cheesecake, Lepaq Lepaq, Jalan Ceylon

After watching my friend's Youtube video on Nasi Lemak Cheesecake Tasting
I have been looking for this place
stumbled upon Lepaq Lepaq in one of my midnight instagram surfing
and here I am
mega hyped up to try the legendary Nasi Lemak Cheesecake

Side note :

"If Nasi Lemak is voted as one of the healthiest breakfast in the world
does that mean a Nasi Lemak Cheesecake is even healthier?
well other than a "balanced" distribution of nutrients 
you have cheese & chocolate added in this cheesecake."

OK. I was just crapping.

Back to topic
Lepaq Lepaq is located in Jalan Ceylon
a 3-5min drive away from Changkat area
It is a little bungalow standing proud in Jalan Ceylon
and you can't possibly miss it because they have this
LEPAQ LEPAQ blue words staring at you.

Front Face of Lepaq Lepaq
Walking into Lepaq Lepaq gives you this
"ultra-instagrammable" ambience
you know, that kind of colours
and arrangements
that will do well with just a click of VSCO filter

yeah, my point is
it's a minimalist design
obviously my kind of design

For Kids

Ground Floor

Open Concept Kitchen

View from 1st Floor

1st floor dining area
 OK enough of interiors
here come the glorious Nasi Lemak Cheesecake
(RM15.00 per slice)

So, sometimes during weekends
they can be very packed and busy
and there's a possibility that this cheesecake is sold out

what I did was, 
I called up the cafe 30min before my arrival
and they actually offered to reserve a piece of cheesecake for me!
how nice of them!

Whole Cake

 Well honestly,
it doesn't really taste very cheesy
the top green translucent layer is cucumber gelatin
sprinkled with anchovies + chilli flakes (not spicy)
middle beige part is a mixture of cheese and glutinous rice
(yes you can actually bite chunks of rice)
peanuts below it
and then the dark brown layer beneath is something chocolate / brownies

it kindda turn you off when you think of 
Nasi Lemak + Chocolate right =P

Nasi Lemak Cheesecake (RM15)
 Review of this cake from me and my friend :

1. It is Okayy.
2. Yeah just Okayy.
3. Nope. DO NOT attempt to eat the top cucumber layer by itself. I'm doing you a favour, just trust me in this.
4. It kindda blend well if you eat all the layers together, but it turns weird if you separate them
5. I actually fancy the glutinous rice in between
6. Peanut is very "peanutty"

Will I be coming back again for this cake?
Well, maybe? 
(and I would like to try the other menu as well)

Nasi Lemak Cheesecake (RM15)
 Rainbow dessert in wishlist for next visit =)

♨ Dotty's TTDI food review

A fairly new breakfast / brunch place in TTDI
Dotty's has made an impact by following the salted egg yolk trend
From the on point salted egg yolk croissant doughnut to authentic hot meals
I would say they (almost) ace in everything

Dotty's entrance is quite an awe actually
It looks like most french building that I've seen in Paris
almost similar to the Laduree but of different shades of colours here

I would visit Dotty's just to take a picture of the entrance

Main Entrance

Menu on point


Here's the Famous Salted Egg Yolk Croissant Doughnuts (RM11)
the australians called this combination - Croinuts 
(pretty delicious snack served in Aus actually!)

Because it's really a hot seller
they are serving it at specific times
Weekdays : 12noon, 2pm, 4pm
Weekends : 11am, 1pm, 3pm

Better go on time before it is sold off!

Salted Egg Yolk Croissant Doughnut

You can't distinctly tell the taste of croissant and doughnuts
it is so well blended that it just melt in your mouth!
The salted egg yolk layer on top 
as well as in between
is really nice

I would totally do this again. Totally.

The only minus point is it is already cold when served
I would think it will be 5x better if it's freshly baked and hot!

Layers of salted egg yolk 

We tried the Scotch Egg (RM26)
where it is served with rocket leaves, freshly baked bread, and sweet potato fries

The scotch egg on top is actually not bad
it is like a japanese ramen egg (almost hard boiled) wrapped in meat forming a ball-liked structure
it might look really small
but bloody hell REALLY filling!

Scotch Egg (RM26)
 and the French Toast (RM18)
Baked brioche stuffed with kaya and caramelized bananas

Everything is not bad but we think the french toast itself is a bit dry
not fluffy enough though

French Toast (RM18)
