♨ The Good Batch, Damansara Uptown

Another new brunch place in town!
The Good Batch @ Damansara Uptown

It is a really good place for brunch
love the service and ambient
plus serving speed =)
I'm over satisfied =D

However, it was quite packed in the morning
and better if you can make a reservation before going =)
cuz we ended up have to share table with others 
which i'm okay with it though =D

I decided on a pineapple juice for myself
with The Good Stuff (RM24.90)
Grilled mango with stuffed french toasties, with crushed nuts, gula melaka & a scoop of vanilla ice cream

I personally love it a lot!
as a french toast lover
I can say that the bread was really well done,
slight crispy outside with fluffy soft spongy bread inside
surprisingly the mangoes blended quite well with the toasties! 
thumbs up! definitely come back for more =) 

The Good Stuff (RM24.90)
 and my makan kaki had The Portobello Road (RM20.90)
which comprises of two breaded portobello mushrooms with wilted spinach and tomatoes, topped with poached eggs

I'm glad that she loves it too! but we both think the french toast tasted yummier!

It was quite a rush morning with many customers
hence we didnt get to try the coffees and desserts
will definitely come back for more in the future!

♨ Crab Factory, SS2 Petaling Jaya

Yoohoo!! It has been looooonnngggg since my last blog post =P
I'm back here! hopefully this month will be slightly more active in posting more food blogs!

*drum rolls..*
welcome one of the new hit in town - Crab Factory in SS2 PJ
Easily directed by GPS, but parking is hard during dinner time!
So we ended parking quite far away, and then have to walk across some back alley
which is scary
(just want to drama a bit LOL)

so this is what the shop looks like
We almost missed it as the "Crab Factory" word is quite small
well, it's at the end-lot, so you wont miss it =)

Crab Factory
inside deco
with the menu hanging on the walls =)
I actually love the concept of the shop, quite comfy inside

the menu works this way :
1. Choose your seafood (you'll have to refer to the menu hanging on the wall for prices)
2. Choose your sauce 
3. Level of spiciness!! 

for first timer, unless you are a real hot spicy fan
go for MEDIUM
medium is killing enough for me already =P

and you can have a quick look of the menu here in their website =)

They recommended a king crab (RM229.00) for us
but we don't know how big the size is, 
so we go for 2 meat crabs (RM159.00)
they mentioned its NOT ENOUGH for 2 pax, but i think its okay,
okay for filling but not really really full
just nice =)

and we ordered a side dish too!
just in case if the crab is too tiny for us =)
House Fried Baby Squids (RM12.90)
i think it tasted average only
not "tastefull" enough for my tastebuds!

House Fried Baby Squids (RM12.90)
 and here, our crabs!
it was bigger portion than i expected!
(cuz the waiter really say until like its the smallest thing on earth haha!)
the sauce is YUMMY
but crab meat was not that fresh i think
not chewy enough
but overall it was not bad =)
(very spicy though!)
good experience wearing an apron and eat with hands!

2 meat crabs! (RM159.00)
 so in total we spent almost RM190 for two
which is slightly pricey but I think it was a good experience!
(I like Fatty Crab more though =P)

I recommend you guys to eat during tea time
where they have this promotion (crabs with some side dishes) 
quite cheap i think, around RM50-60 only
and the promo is until 6pm only! (not sure weekends available or not)
