Swensen's Café

It was a very unpleasant evening that I spent in Auto City today. I was not happy and was not satisfy with the respond that the waitress that gave me that they only accept credit cards only if the total bill is above RM30-00. Even so, there’s promotion on Citibank which you dine in this place, you’re entitle for 10% discount. But to my surprise this is their outlet policy where they do not accept credit card below RM30. And my total bill was only RM29-33. What if I was being stubborn and nasty that I don’t want to pay cash? Are they supposed to accept the credit card and also give me a 10% discount? That’s not the money matters me, but the principle of a consumer. They can’t even give me a proper answer why they can’t accept credit card even it’s Citibank promotion. In fact, one gave me an answer that you can present your Citibank card and they will waive 10% discount, if your total bill is below RM30, then you would have to pay cash. On the other hand, the other waitress said, even

Wanton Mee, Chai Leng Park

Image
If you're happen to be in mainland, any part of the area... do drop by this place Chai Leng Park for food. Cuz, you can find many good food down here. And this Wanton Mee is one of them, especially their home made chicken leg. I know not many people like chicken leg, some would think of the hygiene factor, but, to them they were not known that they actually remove the skin of those legs and boil it first before they cook for others dishes. A very good example would be the man at home... been telling him don't know how many thousand times, the process of cooking chicken leg, and his expression to me is always the same. Anyway, this stall used to man by a married couple, now that they are getting old, their son will help them to continue the business. Some how or rather their characters are inherit from the parents. Why I commented that? Whenever they have many orders, they seem to lost track of all the orders and they can completely forgotten about it and didn’t even serve at

Hock Lye Seafood Village, Jelutong Expressway

Delicious seafood restaurant food would normally packed with people during lunch or dinner. Getting away from packed houses, we asked ourselves, where else can we find a place without the hassle waiting and looking for parking as parking these days is also a problem for some places. Well, finally we found a place situated in a big piece of land adjacent to the Jelutong Expressway at Bridge Street Foreshore, going downtown from bridge towards town. When approaching the first traffic light in front of the traffic light junction into Harbour Trade area and also the Kew Ong Yeah Temple ( Nine Emperor God Temple ), you will need to turn right. Immediately after right turned not far from traffic light, make another right turn into a lane and drive all the way to the end. You will notice a signboard of this Hock Lye Seafood Restaurant. Turn right and drive a short distance, you will see Hock Lye Aquarium and Hock Lye Seafood. You will find a big compound enough to cater for 50 to 60 parkin

Chicago Rib House

How would you react when your husband keeps nagging you that he wants to eat something and you think that’s not the right time, as you’ve cook dinner? Oh boy, hubby has been nagging me on this Chicago Rib House and it’s a new eatery outlet in Auto City, Juru. Happened that it has been raining for the past 3 days, and I didn’t get to cook, so to please my ATM, I’ll better say yes to him. Ok, we have Tony Romas in KL and Singapore now we have Chicago Rib House in mainland!! Am sure Chicago Rib House is equally good as Tony Romas. For those ribs’ lovers you’ll have another place to dine… Honestly, I have no idea how long will this place last, before this Chicago Rib House, this outlet was a fine dining restaurant, guess the outlet was too secluded, and not many people noticed, it closes few years after it opened for business. I really hope this would last long. As you know rainy days normally no one could eat a lot, so, we only ordered 4 dishes and shared among the family. We ordered

Sai Toh Lim - 西刀魚丸粿條湯

What to have on Sunday morning, when you see raining clouds and weather gloomy and drizzling lightly? The best is to have a cup of coffee, enjoy reading newspaper and a toast. Well, that will not satisfy a glutton’s stomach, thus, we decided to drive out and look for food. Kekekeke…. Honestly, to find something good and famous in Butterworth, you can only get it at night, during day, it’s hard to find one as mentioned. At first, we thought of going to 7-Long Koay Teow Soup ( 七廊粿條湯 ) in Raja Uda, and I remembered very clearly that there’s another shop like that behind them. Perhaps their competitors? So, I told hubby that’s let’s go to the other shop and try. We sat down and we saw couple of tables ordered the dry koay teow, so, we both ordered 1 soupy base and the other bowl dried koay teow, order a plate of vege and a plate of chicken. Total came out to RM11-00, which I think that’s reasonable, cuz, bigger bowl they are selling at RM3-00. Anyway, I don’t quite like the fish ball, cu

Kings Bay Restaurant

Now that business is so competitive, lots of eating outlet offers lunch set or dinner set. With this offer, the most beneficial would be the consumers, or the gluttons like us. Right? Friday lunch hour is normally slightly longer than any other days, and I took this opportunity to take my staff out for lunch for the project completion and also for an appreciation to their contribution and hard work. As everyone noted that Queensbay is a booming place right now, and it’s near to factories Free Trade Zone, during lunch time, this area will see lots of people coming out for food. I received an email circulation on this Kings Bay Restaurant and wonder the food is it good. Since, the price is kinda reasonable, no harm give it a try. We ordered the Business Set Menu F which consists of prawns, fish, ribs, vegetables, chicken fillet, etc. I will thumbs up for the Marmite Chicken and the Baked Fish in the Clay Pot. The fish is fresh and marvelous taste, as well as the Marmite Chicken, the
