Pasta Zanmai @ Sunway Pyramid

It has been almost half month since i MIA again. Yea… get used to it i always MIA once in a while… depending on my mood. *i always in a mood swing condition* :( Huhuhuhu!! Anyway.. come back again… with piles and piles of posts waiting to be posted. Too many until I get so lazy.. 

It was one fine weekend when the girls get random and decided to meet up for the longest time ever reunion. We have been talking about reunion since months but we never make it 4 together.. and that particular weekend, we make it happen! Weeeee*

DSC06926One of the food stop is Pasta Zanmai, not particularly the best food, we are just merely too hungry to think and to queue for food. I always enjoy hanging out with them because they eat whatever i like to eat, so means we can order a lot and share among ourselves. Hohoho! Eat is forever so important for me k? :D

DSC06934For sharing, Dragon Roll. Avocado + Unagi = Everyone’s favourite.

DSC06938Japanese Scallop Pizza. I love this one. This is probably the best we had for this lunch.

DSC06941Tempura Mentaiko Roll. Its okay

DSC06936For mains, we had Unagi Risotto that doesnt look or taste like risotto at all but still somewhat yummy. hehe

DSC06947Spicy Salmon Spaghetti which is not impressive

DSC06945and.. Spicy Aglio Olio with Lobster. I’ll give the Lobster a thumbs up tho. Lobster is tender and juicy. You can just ignore the tasteless Aglio Olio. :)

I remembered i used to think the food served in Pasta Zanmai is impressive. Quite a disappointment tho. Or maybe Im just fussy. Hohohoho!

Best Breakfast in Lawas — Sheng Ling Cafe & Restaurant

LAWAS, a small town located somewhere between Brunei Darussalam and Sabah is where my mama from. I bet not much people know about this place. I’ll try my best to like somehow introduce the place bits by bits.

DSC05321So generally, breakfast in Lawas are mostly dry noodles, fried noodles, bread, eggs, laksa and nasi lemak as such. Every coffee shop you went in serve almost the same thing except this one. Which, i consider it is the best breakfast place in Lawas. Definitely not the traditional old school type but they have the basics and the refined ones. 

DSC05320Sheng Ling Cafe & Restaurant. One thing good about Lawas is… you can just ask anyone about the location and they will show you. 

DSC05323The hearty breakfast drinks — Hot Teh C (Hot tea with milk & sugar) & Hot Coffee

DSC05875The Basics — Dry Noodle with sliced pork

DSC05877I’ve tried three different coffee shop selling dry noodles but i still think ShengLing holds the best. Why say so? Its the Lard. LARD! One dont simply say NO to lard, especially for noodles. Its very aromatic, the texture of the noodle is silky smooth. Although there’s lard, the noodle is still very light, not too greasy. Sliced pork wise, the sliced pork is braised till tender and it locked all the greatness of the flavours in the meat. Every mouth is happiness. A perfect breakfast bowl. 

DSC05333The Fried Kuey Tiao. (Fried Rice Noodles) Lawas version of Kuey Tiao is slightly different. It is thicker. 

DSC05334Fried Kuey Tiao is good as well. Along with the aroma of the charcoal from the wok. For those who love big fat Kuey Tiao. This is your breakfast.

DSC05336Semi Dry Chao Chai Hungan. A traditional breakfast of the Foochows. 

DSC05338In Kuching, we have Hungan Soup, Dry Hungan but here, its semi dry hungan. Hahaha! I like the taste of it because they are being generous in the wine and oh look… Oysters! A twist.

DSC05326One of my favourite — Fried Glass Noodles with local wine.

DSC05331Love this to bits. It may look very simple and not too appetizing but it is very flavourful. Just even before you eat, the aroma conquer your nose first. The first bite is very light, together with the sweetness from the wine and along side, you find yourself keep eating this. It is a savoury dish of coz, just with a lil bit of tingling sweetness. 

DSC05341Tom Yam Vermicelli. We were quite shocked when it was served. We were expecting like a bowl of tom yam vermicelli soup?

DSC05345Its Fried Tom Yam Vermicelli instead. Something different. Its exactly what you are thinking. Fried Vermicelli with tom yam taste. Spicy, sourish.. if thats your thing, you are so gonna love this.

DSC05878Fried Money Chai Vermicelli with Sambal/Spicy Paste.

DSC05884Not exactly the sambal kinda of thing. More like a balance between sambal and tom yam. The prawn paste is not too overpowering but instead, it gives you the sourish taste from the tom yam. Quite a good combination tho.

ShengLing is by far the only coffee shop serving the more innovative breakfast. Go for something new, try out ShengLing Cafe!

Easy Caesar Salad Recipe

Due to the huge intake of meat and the waistline expansion recently, i’ve decided to sort of eat clean for a week. Not really eat clean but just consume more greens and less carbs. 

And basically the base of my 1 week food is Caesar Salad, the easy one — using premixed caesar salad sauce. Hehehe! So this is my food for the week.

DSC065762 boxes of Romaine Lettuces, curly crisp, green coral, snap peas, cherry tomatoes, Grana Padano cheese, peppercorn, 2 slices of chicken breasts, 2 slices of beef knuckles and 2 cans of tuna in water.

DSC06580Easy caesar salad just need 5 minutes to prepare. Spin the salad leaves in the salad spinner. Spin the excess water so that the salad wont be that soggy.

DSC06584I am using Praise Caesar Dressing. A lil bit too salty for me but I have another bottle which is better in taste and texture.

DSC06585Mixed the Caesar dressing into the salad bowl. I added in cherry tomatoes as well.

DSC06586Shaved some Grana Padano cheese

DSC06591I boiled an egg to go with my Caesar Salad as well. But if an egg is not enough to fill up your tummy space.. like mine today..

DSC06592I pan seared my steak 1 minute each side (marinated with peppercorn and salt) and leave it to rest for 5 minutes. Happy dinner time!!
