Choi Garden SM Megamall

It was a rainy Sunday but we're scheduled to watch a movie so we decided to just eat an early dinner before the movie. And since I was able to visit Choi Garden the previous week and fell in-love with the baked pork buns, I wanted another round.


Noodles, P200. The "pansit" tastes good and has generous amount of meat and seafood. Add a bit of chili oil to level up the taste especially if you love spicy dishes. Serving is good for 2-3 pax.


Spring Rolls, P90. This is not the usual meat or vegetable spring rolls. Its more like mushroom spring rolls. So yummy!


Asado Pork Buns, P99. Three pieces of delicious baked pork buns. If you eat it while its still warm, the bun is very soft. I just discovered that I like it better when its cold already and the bun itself hardens up a bit so that it maintains its shape when I bite into it. The asado tastes great, and I love the bun itself. Two thumbs up and its reasonably priced also.


Here's what I'm talking about when I say that I prefer to eat it several minutes after being served. I was able to literally slice it open using my fork without turning it into a crumbly mess.


Baked Seafood Rice, P268. This comes with a free glass of iced tea. Daughter ordered this and since she was able to finish most of it, I guess its good.


Roast Duck Rice Topping, P280. Hubby's order. We had it reheated because hubby arrived late. I'm not sure if that's the reason why the skin is not that crispy anymore. But hubby was able to finish all of it so  I guess its okay. Its best though to eat it as soon as it is served and not reheated.


Here's the best part -- Make Your Own Shabu Shabu Noodle Bowl, P388.
Step 1: Choose from four types of noodles
Step 2: Choose the soup
Step 3: Select 3 toppings from 12 yummy choices such as asado meat, HK beef ball and beef brisket

Of course, if you are feeling lost on what to do with your noodle bowl, the staff will happily help you out. This bowl comes with a glass of iced tea and taro dessert.

Michelin Star Dining at Putien, Pavilion KL

Michelin Star restaurants are suddenly multiplying especially in the Southeast Asean region with lots of homegrown restaurants getting the international recognition it deserves. One such restaurant is Putien,  whose dishes can be traced back to Fujian, China. Putien was awarded a 1-Star Michelin in 2016, this was in Singapore where the restaurant originated. It has then expanded with several restaurants in SG and in other countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.

Ooma-zing Food!

Sharing one of our resto-favorite! We've been dining here for about three years now and as much as I'd like to keep this resto a secret, it's already out in the open about how good the food is at Ooma. Ooma is a Japanese-fusion restaurant so don't expect the usual Japanese dish preparations but be ready for not only a visual feast but a fusion of east and west. For starters, we had this delightful cheesy maki. I believe this is on a limited run on the menu so I really can't recall what it's called. Crunchy and cheesy really, my daughter love this so much.
