Brunch @Coffee & Dreams, Seremban 2

I am not a heavy coffee drinker. But I love the fact that there are more coffee joints opened in Seremban 2. Currently there are 4 (did I miss out any?). 4 is definitely a small number compared to KL. Anyhow…quality is more important than quantity right? hehe….

I’ve just visited Coffee & Dreams located at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. The so-called happening place in Seremban 2 with restaurants and pubs.

I enjoyed having a cuppa aromatic coffee in a cosy environment.

“A coffee a day keeps the doctor away”

Lets see if Coffee & Dreams is ‘my cup of tea’.

Cakes, muffins, pudding and pastries are served here.

I also like the quiet and calm environment when I was there. Service was not bad too.

Selections of ‘hot drinks’ on their menu.

The current on going promotion for breakfast, lunch and tea time which I thought its a good deal.

The free glass of watermelon juice upon ordering lunch from their on going promotion.

Latte

Chocolate Mint

Cappuccino

Full Spaghetti with Ham – RM15.90

The spaghetti bolognese was alright but not memorable.

Chicken Chop

Skinless and boneless chicken chop was grilled to perfection and drizzled with fragrant black pepper sauce. Alongside with some greens. The chicken meat was tender and also tasty. Quite good.

I wanted to try their waffle. Therefore I went for original flavor;

Butter & Syrup Waffle – RM6.90

The waffle turn out to be quite nice. Not dry but fluffy.

Mille Crepe (Vanilla). There were actually few other flavors…but I chose to try the original flavor. Want to try the originality ma… hehe.. Unfortunately I felt that their mille crepe was just average. Too much cream I felt. A nice mille crepe shouldn’t look collapsing, right?

This “I dunno what name” chocolate cake was better.

Yay…I finally got the chance to taste this handmade pudding by Sweet Montage. There were few other flavors, but I chose Salted Gula Melaka. Price at RM7.90 for a small jar… a lil pricey?? But I love everything from the packaging, the taste and the texture. Wobbly texture and wasn’t too sweet. Like a combination of custard & tau fu fah :-)

Verdict: If you notices… I actually visited Coffee & Dreams on 2 different occasions. First round was for drinks and cakes…2nd round to sample the food. Eventually the drinks (coffee) tasted better on my 2nd visit… first visit made me felt that the coffee taste was rather mild. I hope they will be more consistent in brewing their coffee. Will definitely return for more coffee and food ;-)

Big Mouth Burger, New Burger Outlet @Seremban

Big Mouth Burger, the new burger place in Seremban. I’m glad that the burger fever from KL has finally arrived in Seremban. To cater for Seremban folks. *Hepi*

Honestly I couldn’t catch up with the burger fever in KL. Too many choices already. LOL!

I gotto know about Big Mouth Burger via reading Sean’s post Big Mouth Burger @ Bandar Sunway

Thanks to Sean for sharing this new location.

I dropped a message on their Facebook page to inquire about the opening day because I wanted to pay a visit on that weekend, right after reading Sean’s post. hehe…. Got a replied message from them and was happy to know that they’ll open for business on Saturday. So, I decided to go there for dinner on that day itself.

I went there on Saturday night. But the official opening day was on Sunday. The place was quite vacant when I arrived. But later, customers started coming in. Not much though…probably not many people know about their existence yet.

Using construction material such as scaffolding, safety helmets as part of the interior deco.

self service basis just like other fast food joint.

Together with my mom and my brother, we were there to try out their burger. Looking at the menu, looks like there are more beef choices than chicken. Unfortunately we don’t take beef…looks like not much of choice for us. However I was told that, in future they’ll gonna add in more chicken choice into their menu. Well…that’s a good thing ;-)

Types of sauce for your burger and fries.

Ya…. you do need a ‘Big Mouth’ for their 8 inch size, Big Mouth Burger! :-D

I chose Bloody Mary (RM15.80) under the Veggie category. Flamed grilled juicy tomato, mushrooms on hash brown finished with cheese. The fries are served together with the burger.

I like their charcoal bun which is soft and fluffy. I also like their hash brown and fries. They are crispy but not dry.

Mom and brother picked Pearl Harbour (RM13.80) – under the Chicken category. Flame grilled juicy old fashion teriyaki patties topped with cheese and sandwich with deep fried onion rings.

Side view of ‘Pearl Harbour’.  I like the patty. Its tasty and juicy. The onion rings are addictive too. Nice nibbling stuff.

Verdict : You can also add on cheese or beef bacon to your burger. Soft drinks and hot drinks are priced from RM2.80. I find that their onion rings (RM4.50 for 10pcs) are pretty affordable. Sampling both burgers here, I preferred ‘Pearl Harbour’.

Breakfast @Restoran Melido 美丽都茶餐室, Seremban

I must admit that these days I hardly drive down town to explore food in Seremban. When working in Seremban, I usually bring my own lunch from home. Therefore I also don’t need to go out for lunch. On weekends…I often eat somewhere nearby or eat at home when mummy cooks. Why ar? Sometimes I also lazy to go out lar….Seremban is quite heavy traffic on weekends. But of course still can’t compare to KL. LOL! Its very different when you drive to Seremban town during the day and night. The town is like kinda deserted after 9pm.

All thanks to Ivy, of My Story for refreshing my memory about this place. I was reading her blog last week and noticed she wrote about what she had here at Restoran Melido 美丽都茶餐室, Seremban. I recalled this place! But forgotten what I had here before. LOL! *paiseh*

I got tempted to try the yong tau foo that she mentioned RM0.50/piece. Therefore I decided to come here for breakfast, last Saturday.

photo by mygourmetlist.blogspot.com

An old shop located near Pasar Besar Seremban. And if you are Serembanians…I’m sure you know where is the ‘old yellow bus stop’. This is where its located.

Very classic! Proud to see the younger generations (their children) helping their parent’s business.

Yong Tau Foo for RM0.50/piece. Really worth eating! Working non-stop on stuffing and frying them. Too bad the stuffed bittergourd was not available that day.

The fish cake was firm but not hard and nice. No strong fishy taste too. I also like the meatballs (mixture of pork+fish paste). Bouncy and tasty!

Mom had Mee Kicap with 3 pcs. of Yong Tau Foo for RM3.50.

Although the yong tau foo are priced RM0.50/piece…but the fish paste stuffing wasn’t stingy. Look at the stuffed beancurd.

I tried the Hakka Mee – RM3.80 from one of the stall there. It was alright. But agreed with what Ivy said, Tow Kee Hakka Mee is still my favorite pick.

I also ‘dapao’ a pack of Char Siew Rice (BBQ Pork Rice) – RM4.50 for my brother…

and also a pack of Siew Yuk Rice (Roast Pork Rice) – RM4.50 for my late lunch. Hehe….. The chili sauce wasn’t that good. But the rice was fragrantful and the meat were tasty and juicy!

Verdict : Food were served pretty quick. Although it may not be an air conditioned room…but who cares..as long as the food is good and affordable. Bring additional pack of tissue lo… :-p

Worth To Try Lou Shu Fun @Restoran Yi Poh, Seremban

I love lou shu fun.

I miss having lou shu fun.

Lou shu fun is my all time favorite.

*pause* I feel as though I’m describing my new boyfriend.

Please dun tell Alex about this BF. Hurmm….but I think Alex also love my bf. I’ve influenced him. LOL!

Perhaps some of you may not know what is lou shun fun.

Some people call it rat noodle.  I often call it ‘mee tikus’. I’ve just discovered an English name for lou shu fun. Eventually Wikipedia says..lou shu fun is call ‘Silver Needle Noodle’. Errrmmm….. what a name!

Seremban people like having lou shu fun. You can easily order lou shu fun at any noodle stall. Unlike in KL…most of the time they will tell me they don’t have lou shu fun. *sigh*

Friends who came over, I’ll bring them to Restoran Yi Poh. Needless to go over to the wet market although its nice and cheap…but I don’t want my friends to get disappointed because its often sold out early. (sometimes before 11am)

At Restoran Yi Poh I can have a better dining environment and most important is that the operating hours is till late noon. One can choose to dine in an air conditioned room or a non air-conditioned room.

2013-03-23 12.53.55

Simple 1 page menu. Other than their signature lou shu fun, they also serve other type of noodles as well.

2013-03-23 12.57.05

Yi Poh Lou Shu Fun – RM4.00 (S). Topped with generous minced pork and some pork slices. Stir the noodle before eating. Each strand of noodle will be coated with dark soya sauce and minced pork. What makes Yi Poh lou shu fun special is the spicy chili sambal, I guess.

Some said its similar to the noodle we had for assam laksa what..Hurmm…I think you’ll gotto try it yourself, then you’ll know the difference. *in terms of texture*

2013-03-23 12.56.40

Dislike lou shu fun, you can also try Hakka Mee – RM4.00(S). I would say their Hakka Mee is not as nice as Tow Kee’s Hakka Mee.

2013-03-23 12.57.58

Additional side order. Pork Balls (RM0.60/pc) are my favorite. Huge, bouncy and firm meat ball. Served with peppery soup.

2013-03-23 13.10.53

All wipe out! :-D

I heard that their wantan mee is quite good too. Tourist can conveniently shop for Seremban siew pao by just crossing the road. “Asia Siew Pau” is located just opposite. Freshly baked siew pao and other pastries can be purchase there. However I find that the siew pao quality at “Asia Siew Pau” are not really consistent. Sometimes nice sometimes not so nice. So far, I preferred the siew pao at Kampung Baru Rasah.

Random photo of the day: *play with food* A heart shaped sausage! HAHA!

McCafe is now available in Seremban!

Yippie! Good news for the Seremban folks. The long awaiting McCafe is now available in Seremban. Ok lar…I know I’m the eagerly waiting one. LOL!

Currently there’s only 1 McCafe in Seremban. It is only 1 week old. Located at Tesco Seremban 2.

So far I only visited McCafe once, when it was newly opened in KL.

At McCafe you can enjoy assorted coffee with an affordable price. I meant comparing to other branded* coffee outlets. ^_^

What is McCafe?

McCafe is a coffee-house-style food and drink chain, owned by McDonald’s.

McDonald at Tesco Seremban 2 is quite spacious. Now, they have allocate this section into McCafe.

You’ll probably like to check out the price before placing your order.

For hot drinks, there are 3 sizes. Small, Regular & Large.

Cakes and muffins for you to pair with your drinks.

Mummy had Americano (Regular) – RM5.50. She claimed the coffee is nice.

I had Flat White (Regular) – RM5.50. I also added some chocolate powder and vanilla powder onto my drink. Hehe….the chocolate & vanilla powder are available at counter. You may add as much as you like. I like my cuppa Flat White too. ;-)

Marcus had Iced Mocha (Regular) – RM6.50. It looks like 3 layers tea. LOL! It tasted good also…

I was tempted to order the Chocolate Lava Cake – RM7.50.

Check out the oozing runny chocolate from the cake. OMG! My cake is flooded with chocolate! Me likey* The chocolate cake was warm & moist too.

Satisfying coffee fix of the day. (No regrets)

*Dunno why my face look so swollen here =_=

Curious on this equation. Hot drink + Happy face = Time??

Nice Coffee @ La Roasteria Coffee, Seremban 2

I am delighted to know that there’s a decent cafe for me to tarn kopi (enjoy coffee). I meant like those in KL…aromatic coffee with pretty coffee art on it..Also, I received good reviews from some friends who had tried their coffee.

Recently I found out that they’ve opened another outlet at Seremban 2..which is nearer to my mom’s house. The main outlet is at Seremban town (Jalan Kong Sang).

La Roasteria Coffee is the name of the cafe.

Nice ambiance. Isn’t it? Its a good thing that we can have brunch or have a drink with friends in this lovely place. In Seremban, we have very limited choice of places like this. Unlike in KL, people are spoiled with choices and places for brunch.

Other than coffee, they do serve these freshly baked scones and also cakes.

I came here for brunch. So, lets order something to fill our stomach.

I wanted light coffee, so I ordered a cuppa Caffe Latte – RM7.20.

*A heart shape for me*

Bro had Cappuccino – RM7.20. Pretty coffee art right?

While mummy had Mocha – RM8.

I chose to order sandwiches. I picked Butter Croissant with Fried Wild Mushroom filling – RM9.80. Choices of bread are Butter Croissant, Ciabatta, Panini, Baguette. On menu stated, “Fried Wild Mushroom filling” is recommended. Unfortunately I find it rather dry and tasted too mild. However I do like their butter croissant. Fresh, flaky and buttery!

Creamy Chicken Mushroom Pie – RM12.80. A savory pie with chicken filling. Light, flaky and buttery pastry. Comes with creamy soup. This was good!

Spaghetti Chicken Bolognese – RM10.80 was just average.

Can’t leave without having dessert. There wasn’t much choice of cake during my visit. I chose Moist Chocolate Mud Cake – RM7.80. Indeed very moist. Rich chocolate taste too. The cake was served warm. Therefore I thought it would be perfect if they added a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of the cake.

Soon after I uploaded this colorful photo collage on my FB, friends got excited and drop by La Roasteria Coffee the following day.

Verdict : Simple and nice cafe to catch up with friends and have a drink. Recommended to try their coffee and cakes!

Lunch at Just Noodle, Seremban 2

I preferred noodles over rice. How about you?

I was in Seremban over the weekend. Mummy mentioned to me about this new makan place in Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. Mummy too is a noodle lover, so we head over there for our lunch. You know lar…new place..everybody will be ‘new toilet’ (hangat hangat tahi ayam) that includes us too..expected more crowd. But not till the extend, that the whole town people come lar…. LOL!

20121229_140333

Located opposite of the PKNS building.

20121229_130804Not using wallpapers..instead..a creative way, sticks all the porcelain bowls on the wall. Other than that, the lamp shades are also of porcelain bowls.

20121229_130908

Ohh….The Chinese saying…

20121229_134354Choose your preferable type of noodle. This page somehow look familiar to me. If I’m not mistaken I’ve seen it some where…some other noodle house.

20121229_131127From Left; Sea Coconut Longan & Ginseng Chrysanthemum. Both are priced RM2.70/cup. The drinks are quite concentrated. Nice.

20121229_132436

Bro’s Laksa Noodle (RM6.90) arrived so much earlier than us. He chose egg noodle. And the noodle portion was quite big. I wouldn’t say the curry broth is perfect..but just okay.

20121229_133416Sis ordered a bowl of Traditional Pan Mee (RM6.90) which I felt the soup is quite oily although its tasty.

20121229_133852Mom ordered “Char Cheong Mee” (RM6.90) using spinach noodle. Konlou noodle in spicy sauce topped with minced pork and preserved vegetables (char choy). The noodle is quite springy.

20121229_133721Well..my order was a bowl of Hakka Mee (RM6.90). The hakka mee not too bad actually. The amount of tasty minced pork cooked with fried pork lard was quite alot too.

Overall Rating (for above food) : 7/10

Unfortunately many people complained about the poor service and the mixed up orders. Understand its newly open, many of the owner’s friend came to support..but that doesn’t mean they get their food first right?

On Mummy’s Birthday………….

Speaking about western food in Seremban, there aren’t much choice. Unlike those Chinese ‘Dai Chow’ which can be find easily.

Kensington Restaurant in Seremban will often come across our mind when refer to serving decent western food with affordable pricing too. I think my Seremban folks would agreed as well. Kensington has existed for many years. It has total 2 outlets in Seremban.

On mummy’s birthday, we decided to go there for dinner. This place is often crowded over weekends, dinner and especially on festive seasons.

A pot of Peach & Passion fruit tea for RM10.

My cheeky niece insisted to shoot a photo of her.

Started off with a bowl of Cream of Mushroom Soup for RM4.30.

I ordered a Seafood Platter for RM48, enough for 3-4 eaters. This seafood platter comes with Stuffed Crabs with Cheese, Fried Prawn with Salt & Pepper, Fried Squids with Tangy Sauce, Mussels Tomato Salsa.

All the above are quite good. I especially like the Mussels Tomato Salsa (very appetizing) and Stuffed Crabs with Cheese.

A closer shot

Chicken Veronique with Grape Wine Sauce – RM16

We all love this Sizzling Chicken topped with Ham & Cheese served with Butter Cream Sauce for RM16.

Bolognaise Chicken Pasta – RM12.50

My family enjoyed the dinner.

For dessert, we had Toffee Banana with Ice Cream & Mixed Fruits - RM12.

I remembered having this the very first time was during my teenage time..with my friends. Memories*

I like the toffee banana. Just like crispy pisang goreng coated with caramelized toffee.

Lunch @ Restaurant I Delicious 爱特壹式港式茶餐厅, Seremban 2

Cough Cough Cough…..

hate the throat irritation, hate coughing coughing!

blame it on the bad weather, blame it on the lack of rest, and especially blame it on the lousy marrybrown fried chicken I had at LCCT few days back! The main culprit!

 

Alright….back to the main topic.

There’s a new restaurant at Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2. Uptown Avenue is currently the most happening area in Seremban 2. Restaurant I Delicious is like a Hong Kong style cafe serving non halal food. Opened since beginning of November 2012. So, I decided to give it a try.

Occupying 2 shop lots with smoking and non-smoking area.

HK Style Coffee (RM2.90), HK Style Yin Yong (RM3.20)…Both of these drinks are refillable. I personally preferred the coffee over yin yong. Felt that the yin yong has too much milk taste.

Curry Fish Ball – RM6.90

So so only. Wondering how come curry fish ball not curry gravy one? Looks more like chili fish ball @_@

Noodle Soup with Shredded Pork & Szechuan Vege – RM5.90

Normal but acceptable.

Spicy Seafood Noodle – RM6.90

The spiciness is bearable. But not much of seafood.

Honey Chicken Rice with Yam Ring – RM11.90 (recommended)

I like this! The fried yam ring is good (outer crisp & smooth yam). While the honey chicken is quite tasty and its not dry.

‘Fah Tiu’ Wine Bee Hoon – RM6.90

I also like this. Tasty soup with great ‘fah tiu’ wine taste. Cooked together with ginger strips, wolfberry and chicken. Taste like the one mom cooks at home!

Brunch at The Muffin House, Seremban

I remember I once visited this place when it was quite new. But was few years ago. Opppss…..tee hee..

That time they were more into serving muffins. I also remember the muffins were good.

Weekends, we’ll usually just settle our lunch around Seremban 2 area. Because lazy to go down town..The other day, out of sudden, I got the idea to come here for brunch. So, I decided to date mummy. ^_^

A simple looking cafe, nice to hangout with friends and family.

Simple menu with pages of sandwiches, pastas and drinks.

The Muffin House, practice self-service. Place and pay your order at the counter.

Mummy ordered a cup of Black Coffee for RM4.90.

I like my cuppa Caramel Cappuccino – RM6.50. Aromatic coffee with nice hint of caramel taste, which is not too sweet.

Mummy likes her Chicken Pepperoni Spaghetti with Mushroom sauce – RM10.90. I was surprised with the serving method. Instead of the usual porcelain plate, they uses big paper cups. From the look, I’m gonna guess that, they 1st placed the cooked spaghetti in the paper cup, next pour in the creamy mushroom sauce, topped with slices of pepperoni then finally they heat it/ placed in the microwave?

My Smoked Chicken Spaghetti with mushroom sauce – RM10.90 was good also. Topped with slices of smoked chicken with drizzles of BBQ sauce. The not too creamy mushroom sauce won’t make you feel ‘jelak’.

My only complain for this spaghetti is the portion abit small for me. HAHAHAHA!!!

At The Muffin House, they sell assorted flavors muffins.

Types of muffins they served.

Other than muffins, they do have assorted cakes too.

I chose ‘Marble’ Muffin for RM4.90, about the size of my palm. I would say the muffins are worth eating. They are moist and not too flaky.
