Christmas has just passed, so, how do you all spend it? I had a good one in fact, yes, again it’s in KL. Well, this is more of a remembrance of what we had spent last year, especially with the Mama Mia’s musical stage was on the hit last year. 1st stop was lunch in Starhill Gallery on Christmas Eve… a sumptuous lunch with Abalone Sashimi as appetizer which is on the house some more. That gives all of us a indulge feeling. Not to forget that 2nd plate of Abalone Sashimi is only costs RM38 per piece, all Abalones are imported from Chile. Next, followed by a variety of sashimi, with the range of White Tuna, Red Tuna and Salmons. Look at the size of these assorted sashimi… I would have to comment that I doubt I could find such generous sashimi in Penang. Grilled items like Mackerel, Salmons, and Unagi (Eel). It’s juicy and tender. Fried items like Tempura, we have Prawns and Soft Shell Crabs. The prawns are fresh and it’s big in sizes too, and that goes to the crabs as well. T

What’s their signature? Basically Fish & Chips (RM16.00), and look at the serving, it’s basically an Aussie’s size. If you’re small eater, best to share with another person. Cuz, honestly the generosity in giving the food is honestly grateful. What they have is either beer battered or bread crumbed. In fact, I like the bread crump version, probably due to the crunchiness. When I first took this Fish & Chips,

It’s basically variety of dim sum and also noodle tasting. Variety down from steam items like siu mai, har kau, and many other more. Apart from steam items, we were also served the pan fried, baked or deep fried items like, prawn fritters, and egg tarts, spring rolls, many others more. How could we miss out Chinese bun as in Bao in Dim Sum, right? We were served the normal Char Siu Bao (Barbeque Pork Bun), Pork Bun, and Fermented Pork Bun ( 南乳包 ). As mentioned noodle tasting is also part of the anniversary celebration, thus a couple of fried noodle were served… and the clicking sound from the cameras could be heard from one to another.
