Fresh and tasty steamed "Pak Soo Kong" Fish with soy sauce is a popular dish here. This restaurant is fully owned by Unique Seafood (PJ) Sdn Bhd, famous with live seafood picks, good food, good price and services. They have a team of Senior Captains and young hard working Nepalese Waiters.

Beancurd Abalone Sauce, an added order after our 4th dish. Nice and everyone enjoy this smooth chef-made beancurd.

The Captain recommended this beautiful 2-way-style kailan vegetable in a very convincing manner. Yes, the presentation is beautiful but not in picture. The shredded kailan vege are deep fried. The lengthly cut stems are fried with garlic, dried cuttlefish and dried shrimps separetely and then combined with the earlier fried shredded vege. What a creative cooking idea, Ying Yong Kailan Choy.

Kung Po Eel, a dish easily available at such kind of live seafood restaurant. The eel's meat are cut into bite size cooked with lots of large onions cubes, dried chilly and spring onions with some sweet and their secret-recipe sauce. Quite a common dish available in most restaurants except we have the fun of seeing these eels alive before arriving on our table to be savoured.

Captain recommendation of Lala cooked in soup base. We still prefers Lala Chong Restaurant's cooking style. This dish lacks the wine and ginger flavour.

A special dish for the meat lover which one will never forgets when you patronize Pantai. Superb nice with special sauce. The Waiters offered to cut them into bite sizes for easy eating.

The total bill is about RM200.00 with fragrant coconut, herbal drinks, chinese tea and fruits platter. Many THANKS to WH for being the host of this nice meal. Where and when is our next meal again?

Chicken Nuggets

Kids food from my kitchen. Kids around. What to serve them? Biscuits, mooncakes, sandwhiches or fried noodles. All say NO!

2 pieces of minced chicken meat mixed with little flour and cornflour. Mixed well with 3 dashes of white pepper, 3 dashes of black pepper, some chic granules and 2 drops of sesame oil. Measure them flat-full in a spoon and slide them down to the hot oil. Deep fry them till golden brown. Serve with chilly, tomato sauce and mayo. Kids love it.

Delicious, smooth and tasty steamed chicken at Restoran Hor Fun at SS2/63. A whole leg chicken at RM11.00. A nice place to have hor fun and chicken rice.

We normally dine at a shop at Paramount Garden facing the main road to Section 14. The hockchiew chicken rice shop has moved to another shop at Paramount Garden too, but we are not able to locate the shop till todate. Anyway,we are still searching for it. Anyone who knows the whereabout of this shop, do let me know. The present shop owner is now selling similar type of chicken rice, but nothing compared to the previous hockchiew 'kaifan'.

RM1.00 for a chicken rice, almost the price of a coffee shop. The rice is just nice, not oily with margarine or butter. Chicken rice with real chicken fats and stock are the best.

Prawn Wantan Hor Fun @ RM4.80 with 6 lovely wantans and hor fun. Usual and common taste and I just wonder why 'kucai' is not added to flavour the soup taste. We also have bean sprouts @ RM4.00 and 5-prawns wantan soup at RM3.00.

Spicy Petai Prawns

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
A petai a day keeps the doctor away. Today, I serve our family's favourite spicy petai prawns, really spicy with red chillies padi. The usual which everyone knows how to cook and like to eat dish.

Just cut open the petais into half (to check worms) and soak them in salt water for crunchiness. Peel prawns, quick wash them with salt. Saute some minced garlic, shallots, ginger, tumeric roots, lemon grass, red chillies and red chillies padi till fragrant. Add in a little sugar and belachan. Add in prawns and kaffir lime leaves and mix them well. Stir and cook for a while, add in petai, mix well and add in a little water. Let is simmer for a while. Pour in 1 cup of fresh milk and let it cook for another 3 minutes.

It's ready and lovely yet delicious with white rice. I ensure that I have ready enough drinks on my dining table. Otherwise, my family members will be jumping here and there for drinks. So, eat or not to eat!.

Restoran Kanna Banana Leaf Rice, Section 17, PJ, Selangor

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Kanna Banana Leaf Rice is popular with it's hill-top atmoshere and mild curry flavours. When you are seated, a group of energetic Waiters will approach you for orders. No need to go in to the restaurant if you choose to dine at the open-air area. Just order what you want and they will serve you. And this is the wide range of marinated seafood ready to be fried. Tempting right?

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
Quickly, one Waiter will lay banana leaves on the table and another will scoop rice generously and another one will scoop those veges and curries for you. However, the "triplet-container' with dhal, curry fish and curry chicken sauces will be left on your table for you to enjoy. You can even request for more if you like. Normally, we asked for dhall refill. Sedap!

When we order fried squid, they communicated from one end to another, across the road and there the chef will do his frying. It was served shorty, hot and aromatic with lots of curry leaves and large onion crisps. A must to order wherever I eat at Kanna. Best!

Fried chicken is delicious and meat is soft. It is tastier to eat banana leaf rice with hand and your fingers will do a good job like the Indians. No wonder, we can tear and squeeze meat easily rather than using the elegant-way of fork and spoon. Well, I saw lots of youngsters doing the same and happily eating under the trees. What a muhibbah culture!

Lamb ribs readily available at food counter. A suitable dish for wet saucy food. This piece is the size of 3 ribs in one piece and tasted good with soft meat texture. With the standard serving of rice, vegetables, acar. fried squid, chicken, curry lamb ribs and drinks, the total bill is RM40.37 for three persons. The price are reasonable as we patronised Kanna at least twice a month.

Front view of Kanna Restaurant with 2 shoplots. You can choose to dine indoor and outdoor. No pictures of outside view as there were many diners around. Some diners will not be happy to be photographed and I have to respect their dinner ambience. We prefer outdoor as we like the dining under the trees with fresh air environment. Next post for more pictures, ok?

See.. these hard-working Waiters are not only energetic at work. They are hardworking in inviting pictures to be taken. When I go near to snap the marinated seafood, they are ready there for my clicking. What a team? See, their smiling faces and thumbs up. Tauke Kanna, if you read my blog, remember to make them happier and your customers will be even happier.

Ha ha ha.. This Waiter came to me and asks

Murugesan: Saya tak ade ke
Callie : Apa tak ede?
Murugesan : Dalam!
Callie : Ah? Dalam?
Murugesan : (Pointing at my camera) tu...
Callie : Oh.. Mari saya tangkap gambar mu.
Murugesan : Ayoyo... saya pun ada gambar.

See the way he post is just like John Trovolta in the 80's after the Saturday Night Fever Dance.
I show him the picture from my camera and he was even more happier. Will give him this picture if I eat there again next week.

So once they are happy, they will make customers happy. Go there to have banana leaf rice if you want to be happy.

Hokano Japanese Restaurant, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Today, Japanese Food is popular among the young and old. Many accepted that Japanese food is a healthy one with hot ocha, shashimi and a less-oil food. Price may not be healthy if you are tempted by the light-box menu or colourful garnish menu where one will possess an uncontrollable urge to savour them.

Hokano Japanese Restaurant is our choice to try something cheap as written in most bloggers' posts. Oh no, not true. The prices are like other restaurants, ranging from cheap to expensive choices. This set of Chirashu Sushi is RM21.50, served with salad and rice topped up with sushi.

Salmon Set at RM17.95. Not much to savour as the classy plate has over-shadowed the food. What a wise and creative food presentation!

Add RM11.05 we got this set as we ordered the 'classy plate' menu. Quite a big piece of salmon fish and it tasted good.

Sanma fish is another version of mackerel. Priced at RM13.95 it was served with rice and soup. An ideal set for the like-to-eat people. Not enough, add one more to fill up the food urge.

And, the Menu with a wide selection of foods for you to choose. At about 8.30pm there were 5 tables x 4 pax each already seated to be served. Hokano's business seems to be improving as they cater for family and office crowds.

This restaurant is situated at 74, Jalan SS21/35, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor. (same row with Maybank)

Naili's Place, Damansara Uptown, PJ

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
We have passed by this place many times and was wondering what kind of food Naili serves.
We can see the 'bali, kampung, or roof-top restaurant' along the road of Damansara Uptown, often with loud music played from the restaurant. The escalator brought us to the dim restaurant with several sections concepted in different ambience, private, open and road view.

Priced at RM14.90, the portion is considered small for my daughter and before she eats she said she wanna tapau burger home later. The noodles are over-cooked and tasted no good.
Just for trying this time and must hold not to order the next time.

The presentation looks messy, small portion but tasted good with the cheese ingredients that played the major role. Priced at RM15.50.

Priced at RM8.90, the usual nasi lemak served with standard sambal set. No 'oooh' and no 'emmm' and it's proven to be a common nasi lemak.

When the Waiter presented the Menu to me, I got difficulties in choosing my food. I actually ordered tomyam noodles and was told later that 'sudah habis'!. (so fast ah, at 8.30pm woh..)

I ordered something light at RM7.90 which is a reasonable price for a good ambience restaurant The beehoon tasted a little sourish and tasteless eventhough these 2 medium prawns greeted me sweetly together with some potatoes and cabbages.

This ubi rebus is only RM4.00, served with fresh coconut and sambal dip. I still prefer the the siamese version with sugar and coconut milk.

Naili also serves steak and many other menus. Normally, for eating out without recommendation(s), we would prefer to order common low price food. Otherwise our pocket will be burnt.

Ambience is rich for those who wish to 'lepak' or spent long hours there with live music to entertain you. Where else can we have such ambience with such prices at PJ, other than PJ Hilton with Alleycats singing while you dine!. What a joy and fun dinner?

Weekend, eat out at State, PJ? What kind of food is popular there?. There are lots of Chinese Restaurant with crabs promotion, Cafes with varieties of delicious food and Kopitiams with many choices of hawker foods.

And, Nasi Kandar is still our favourites and Lotus Restuarant situated at The State Cineleisure, PJ is our choice for dinner. There are wide varieties of curry dishes, squid, prawns, mutton shanks, vegetables, fried chicken, fried fish, acar and varieties of rice. This is part of the array of foods displayed. See the tempting spicy dishes and why wait! Orderlah.

Mutton Shank @ RM15.00, Chicken @6.00, Squid @ RM12.00, Prawns @ RM14.00, 2 types of Vegetables @ RM8.00, 5 Rice @ RM6.00 and Curry Sauces, Drinks & Others @ RM12.40. Total bill RM73.40.

The Lamb Shank tasted nice and soft and it is not a common dish available any other nasi kandar eateries. Squid and prawns are like the sweet and sour style, tasted good but expensive as the prawns are of small sizes. The vegetables are alright as they are not over-cooked. The ayam masak merah is just nice and freshly cooked.

As our orders are all medium portions the total price of RM70+ is expensive at this nasi kandar restaurant. At Chinese Restaurant, with such price, we can have fish, meat, vegetables, fried rice, prawns or squids. So, why not chinese food and nasi kandar?. I think it is the 'gian' (addicted) to the 'kas kas' !

Correct Ways of Eating Fruits

Food Tips
Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
We all think that eating means simply buying fruits, cutting it and just popping into our mouths.

Fruits are the most important Food

You will be much more appreciated if you know how to eat?

Fruits should be taken in empty stomach, not as a deserted meal as is often done. If you eat fruit like that it will also serve a major role to detoxify your system, supplying with a great deal of energy for weight loss and other life activities.

Lets say you eat two slices of bread and a slice of fruits. As fruits digests faster than bread, the slice of fruits digest quickly and ready to go straight through the stomach into the intestines, but its passage is blocked by the bread which takes longer to digest…

In the mean time the whole meal ferments and turns to acid. Consequently when fruits, come into contact with the food in the stomach and digestive juices, the entire mass of food begins to spoil. So it is better to eat fruits in empty stomach or before your meal!

You have heard people complaining – Every time I eat watermelon I burp, When I eat durians my stomach bloats up, When I eat banana I feel like running to toilet etc.

Actually, this will not arise if you eat the fruits in empty stomach. The fruits mixes with the putrefying other food and produces gas and hence bloat! Graying hair, balding and nervous outburst, dark circles under the eyes – all this will not happen if you take fruits in empty stomach Graying hair, balding and nervous outburst, dark circles under the eyes – all this will not happen if you take fruits in empty stomach.

When you need to drink fruit juice, drink only fresh fruit juice, NOT from the cans.

Don’t drink juice that has been heated up. Don’t eat cooked fruits because you don’t get nutrient at all. You only get to taste.

So stop making ‘durian porridge’ if you want nutrients. Cooking fruits destroys all the vitamins. Eating the pulp or the whole fruit is far better than drinking the juice as the fiber is good for you.

If you drink the juice drink mouthful by mouthful slowly,because you must let it mix with your saliva before swallowing it.

A 3-day “fruit fast” is a very simple and very effective way to cleanse and de-toxify your body. Just eat fruits and drink fruits juice throughout the 3 days and you will be surprised when your friends tell you how radiant you look!

During the “fruit fast” you can eat different fruits at different times, although occasionally mixed fruit salad would also be permissible and more interesting.

If you have mastered the correct way of eating fruits, you have the secret of beauty, longevity, health, energy, happiness and normal weight.

Wishing you a Healthy Life
