I don’t frequent Sunway Pyramid too often and thus, am not aware that this restaurant actually exists. It serves good Chinese food and its non-halal. The common stuff that everyone else ordered was their barbequed meat rice sets and noodles. However, they also have items where you can order to be shared. My colleagues and I decided to order a few dishes to be shared.
B-Station boasts an extensive Korean food menu (Bimbibap, Kimchi Noodles, Bulgogi, etc). I felt hungry, so, I ordered their Chicken Teriyaki set which costs around RM11.90, I think. And my, the portions are sure huge!
I did ask prior to ordering if the set came with kimchi as appetisers and the owner told me that there’d be 3 types! I didn’t realise then that there’d be so much food:
There was a bowl of seaweed soup, kimchi, pickled white radish, sweetened fried anchovies and potatoes. The portions, although served in little bowls, are more than enough for me, considering the fact that I still had rice and the chicken to polish off. The only ones that I finished were the soup and kimchi. I do like the pickled radish and anchovies as well but not the potatoes.
The rice and chicken was nothing to different from what you’d get from a regular Teppanyaki joint. The chicken strips were just stir-fried with some carrot, bean sprouts and vermicelli julienne. Tasted alright, though but I’d like it more if they had removed the chicken skins that were thrown in together.
Definitely will return to try out their Western dishes and probably bring mom to check out their Korean dishes. For a lunch/dinner set at RM11.90, it is worth the price, considering the huge portions.
MFM is one of my favourite restaurants when I dine alone and I realised that I have never done any reviews on their menu. I usually order their baked fish with herbs but the last time I went there, I was craving for some carbs and had their pasta instead. Will remember to update on my favourite when I go there next time.
I ordered their Creamy Seafood Pasta, which comprises of fettucinne with fish fillets and squids tossed in garlic butter sauce. It is indeed quite ‘heavy’, I would say. The pasta was alright, nothing too special. However, what I didn’t really like was the large pieces of calamari.
I was under the impression that their ‘squids’ were included in their garlic butter sauce (like their fish fillets) and not deep fried. I don’t particularly like calamari since the batter covering the squid rings is usually thick.
As for the accompanying garlic bread, I just left them untouched. The whole plate of creamy pasta is enough carbs for me.
One of my favourite appetiser is their Crispy Whitebait. Basically, I like fish without the bones and this thing they called whitebait is just the perfect munch. Underneath these delightful, crunchy pieces is a bed of coleslaw. Their coleslaw, however, is just normal. I don’t really suggest anyone squeezing the wedge of lemon that came with it on the whitebait, since doing so will sort of make them less crunchy.
MFM is not one of my regular haunts but when I feel like having something better, I will definitely choose this. Itis, in my opinion, a healthier option compared to many of the fast food restaurants available in the country. Will try to remember taking some pictures of their baked fish when I’m there next.
We went back to Room Eighteen in MV again together with dad. This time, I tried out their wanton noodles as I had planned. Mom had their porridge while dad ordered his favourite roasted duck rice.
The place looked up-market, and of course, food isn’t exactly cheap. It is not a place that you can go for a meal every day, so, I guess it should only be reserved to days when the moon is blue. Staff were attentive and friendly, decked in traditional Thai garbs. Well, for the amount you are paying, I think service should be good.
Every time I go for Thai food, I will choose the fragrant coconut as my drink. It somehow is a healthier option in my opinion compared to carbonated drinks. I hate plain water, so, that’s out of the question. Another reason is that I found coconut juice kinda neutralises the spiciness in their food. No matter how spicy the food is, a sip of coconut juice will make it better. Don’t believe? Try it next time!
As soon as we were seated, we were served this bowl of appetiser. Quite unusual from the usual fare of boiled peanuts or pickled vegetables. This was a mish-mash of fried tofu with shredded cucumber dressed with rojak sauce. o.O
It tasted okay, but I didn’t finish it cos I had trouble finishing even my main course.
I ordered a Thai style (spicy) noodle as my main course. The soup looks clear enough but it was indeed sour and spicy enough for me. However, it lacks the authentic tom-yam taste. The vermicelli are surprisingly soft, unlike those you have in regular hawker stalls. Condiments wise, it has a generous helping of seafood – including squids, prawns, shitake mushrooms and fish slices.
Mom ordered fried rice and according to her, it was good, too. I didn’t taste it, so, can’t comment, but towards the end, the plate was rather oily. It could’ve been better if they hadn’t used so much oil. But then again, would it be nice if less oil was used?
Another appetiser that we ordered was fried cuttlefish with salt and pepper. Nothing to shout about, really. The cuttlefish was, in my opinion, slightly overcooked. Too chewy. The salt and pepper taste wasn’t ‘heavy’ enough.
As for desserts, I ordered their mango and sago with shaved ice. It was a big letdown, actually. Although its ‘sweetness’ was just alright for me, their mangoes were not ripe at all! Am not sure if this applied only to my bowl, but I probably wouldn’t order this again.
Well, we’d definitely go back for some other food, especially when they have a good selection of dim sum in the menu. I would really like to try their wanton noodles next time round.
