Bob Republic - Burger & Ribs

Burger Bakar or Grilled Burger punya craze & hype rasanya dah dying out skit, tapi bagi peminat burger, they will always in the look for new joint.
Another street burger bakar is in town... Bob Republic..dapat tahu pun secara kebetulan..tgh browse insta popular feed, tetiba ternampak RIBS!!!!! heheheeh, apa lagi..mesti la nak try out..somemore with their tag line "Rasa 5 Bintang, HargaTepi Jalan"
I'm not really into burgers, tapi when it comes to ribs..tak bley tolak tepi.. :)
With the usual suspects, Me, Hubby, Kie, Yath & Linda... trus menuju ke Bandar Menjalara to sooth our beef cravings..

Nak carik tempat ni satu hal la pulak...key in nama jalan kat Waze..dia suh masuk satu lorong ni..tgk2 tutup..ada palang...hmmm mungkin Waze bengong kot..

Gerai tu near Spicy Kitchen Restaurant, mesti kat area shop lot...try redah shoplot area berdekatan..
Pusing punya pusing..tak jumpa jugak..
Haii...jenuh ni..ok next try..guna Papago pulak..again suh masuk jalan tutup palang tu jugak..tak bole jadi ni..then hubby decided utk turun and tanya orang..kat jalan tutup tu ada security guard..
Yang kelako nya hubby tanya la Bangla guard tu in Malay..Jalan 3/62 kat mana.. sekali Bangla tu sound.."You cannot speak english".. amboi bangla ni..
Okay fine..tanya la in english pulak.."Where is Jalan 3/62?" Hmmm tak paham jugak bangla ni!!!...Hampehh tulll...
Ok pastu tanya "Do you know where is Spicy Kitchen?"..Bangla tu jawab "Next post, next post" 
Tak paham jugak apa dia cakap ni...hmm rasa2 nya suh masuk lorong yang lagi satu kot..
Dia refer to post security guard yang lagi satu...

Patah la balik, masuk the other lorong.. sekali betul..rupanya tempat ni dah jadi gated and guarded...so entry point satu je..lorong tadi tu tutup time malam..

Hmmmm..jenuh tol..tanya guard kat main entrance tu..terus dia tunjuk kat mana Spicy Kitchen...

Sampai la jugak akhirnya ke Bob Republic ni...Yeayyyy!!!



Burger Stall je..



Menu semua ada kat banner...hmm dah penah featured on TV3 rupanya


Air order kat restoran ni



Our orders..
Confirm la I order ribs..the taste, pretty good for a street stall..mana la nak dapat ribs kat gerai kan..
for RM14 dapat dua batang ribs and nachos.. kalau lapar memang tak cukup la..hehehe
the meat is a bit dry..maybe cause dah masak lama and its been sitting on the grill..tapi rasa still sedap, and tak liat..

As for the burgers...no complaints from anybody..so sedap dan enak di makan.. :)

Highlight dia is the buns..boley pilih two type of buns - focaccia bun or charcoal bun.. we all semua pilih charcoal buns...bun dia lembut gilerr...nak angkat tgk daging burger pun dah koyak..that's how soft it is...
Ohh and daging burger tu boley pilih doneness dia - nak rare, medium rare, medium well or well done..
Ours would be medium well..

Hmm tgk gambar balik teringat la pulak ribs dia..

Ayu's Kitchen - BBQ Lamb Recipe

Lama pulak tak update...bz raya..kekekke
This time instead of review kedai makan or makanan, nak share one of my favourite recipe.
BBQ Lamb or Grilled Lamb.
Kitorang adik beradik memang selalu buat BBQ ni..average 2 bln sekali kot..pastu yang wajib masa raya. 
2 tahun sekali confirm buat BBQ session dengan family kat kampung (2 tahun pasal ikut turn beraya kat kampung I..hehehe).. Biasanya buat on raya ke3 or ke4..
So here goes..

First thing benda yang wajib is Lamb la ..this recipe memang for lamb je..kalau daging mungkin ok..ayam memang tak boleh..pasal lamb kan ada bau sikit..so nak kasi potong bau tu..marinate kena rasa masam2 manis2 sikit..baru la ngancam.


Lamb, I guna lamb shoulder..biasanya beli kat Giant..pasal kat situ boleh mintak dia potong nipis2.. kalau tebal nanti lambat masak and takut liat sikit..




Next, Salsa sauce..salsa ni actually is dipping sauce..makan dengan nachos tu..so pilih yang hot punya..whatever brand pun ok..
Bahan2 lain kicap manis kipas udang, sos tomato, HP sauce, black pepper, bawang merah, bawang putih & gula.









Blend semua bawang, bunga cengkih 3-4 bijik. Pastu campur semua dalam bekas..letak gula secukup rasa...biasanya gula lebih sikit..akan rasa manis2..tapi bila dah sebati dengan lamb memang terbaik...







Marinate biasa la...lagi lama, lagi menusuk rasa dalam daging tu..macam raya baru ni, lepas siap semua I masukkan kat peti sejuk bawak overnight, pastu letak dalam freezer..ada la dalam 4 hari frozenkan..pasal nanti nak travel balik kampung takda la cair..



Macam biasa, lepas siap marinate tak bley tahan la..nak kena makan jam tu jugak, easiest way.. masak dalam kuali la..heeheh..bukak api slow..pastu masuk sikit sos marinate tu..masuk air sikit-sikit..minyak tak perlu pun. Biar masak sampai kering..pun boley.. takyah nak siap kan arang ke bagai..



Time BBQ, biasala kerja orang lelaki la nak nyalakan bara semua tu, and diorang la yang tukang grillnya, either my brother or my hubby. :)




Hidangan wajib dengan lamb mestila kena ada salad..and my newly found salad dressing yang I recommend, Roasted Sesame, brand Kewpie... rasa dia lemak2..memang sedap..

First time try masa makan horenso salad kat Gyu-Kaku .. dok teringat-ingat je salad ni..everytime pergi mesti order.. 
One day my MIL beli salad pack with dressing. Dalam tu ada dressing roasted sesame ni....bingo..rasa memang sebijik..baru la tau salad dressing apa..

So no more Thousand Island.. Roasted Sesame for me....







Fruits & Salad


Hope siapa yang try the recipe bley bagitau menjadi ke tak..:) musim open house raya ni mana la tau ada yang nak buat BBQ ke kan..

Dancing Fish - Malay-Indo Cuisine

Again, plan asal nak berbuka kat tempat lain..end up kat tempat lain..kes nya restaurant tu dah fully booked. Yang ni pun penuh jugak, dapat seat pun kat area luar..Memang profit giler2 restaurant time bulan puasa ni..

Iftar with my bff, Misz aka Chubah and newly wed cousin, Isma (pangkat Mak Sedara sebenarnya..hehehe)
Patutnya Amy pun join jugak but last minute cancel sebab anak dia muntah2 and demam teruk. Hope Muiz is doing ok.

What a unique restaurant name, Dancing Fish..ikan menari..apa kes..hehehe.. memang kesnya ikan menari la..deep fried ikan talapia - signature dish kat sini.
They serve Malay/Indonesia food, so let see whats good here.


Dr Isma, Me & Chubah



We are early, so still lengang lagi... :)



Keropok Malinja


Daging Dendeng


Pucuk Paku Masak Lemak


Tauhu Telur


Bebek goreng garing


Dancing Fish, Chubah main nyorok2 pulak











Overall food memang sedap, the highlight to me is daging belado, its different dari yang biasa I pernah makan, usually belado tu is cili merah, but here its more like herbs & spices, enak bangat!!!
Pucuk paku masak lemak pun sedap, kuah thick & creamy with pucuk paku still crunchy.
Bebek (duck) goreng garing pun sedap, goreng dgn bumbu special Indonesia and best part daging itik tu lembut sgt2.. biasa itik kan chewy skit but this one cooked in such a way daging tu jadi lembut and tasty..tambah pulak dipping sauce dia yang sedap..
The dancing fish to me biasa je..deep fried pastu cicah dgn cili kicap...hmmm dipping sauce tu kalau bagi yg jenis sambal pedas ke mesti lagi sedap :(
Tauhu telur tu nothing to shout sgt, its unik la, jarang jumpa dish ni kat kedai lain..hubby yang suka sgt ni..

Harley's - All American Burger

Masa pergi pasar Tmn Tun nampak la kedai ni..hmm this is new.. LGB Tower, opposite pasar besar TTDI.
Google around, some say tempat ni inspired from In-N-Out burger chain dari US..
Wahh, my hubby dengar je In-N-Out Burger ni terus tergedik2 nak try out..
In-N-Out Burger ni memang famous kat US, but its only in California..dia penah try when he was there many moons ago (halal ke tidok??) heheheh..zaman jahiliyah lagi katanya..

But this one the owner guarantee all food are sourced from Halal supplier, and diorang tgh dapatkan Halal Jakim certification.

Harley's ni nak kata restaurant, tak jugak..it's more like a counter..dining area kat luar, macam ala2 piknik giteww..or boleh dine kat dalam, at the chinese halal restaurant. Its the same owner so takda hal..:)











Plan asal nak berbuka dgn Kathy and cousin hubby, Dada..but last minute dia tak boley join. Kebetulan pulak Yana pun berbuka luar pasal dia bawak anak buah kluar shopping raya..
Jadila 3 couple erat ni berbuka sekali.. heheeh
Since its in TTDI, I tapaukan la sekali kuih makcik lembap kat Perodua TTDI tu.( sapa follow my insta tau la citer makcik ni..heheeh).. Kuih seri muka and kuih talam..terbaik di pasaran..:)





Menu tak banyak sangat, simple and straight forward - either chicken burger, beef burger, vege burger or fried chicken. Pastu variation burger ada macam2 la, no cheese, double patty etc.

I tried beef burger and hubby 2x2 beef burger, 2x2 tu patty dia pun ada dua :)
Set menu comes with burger, drink and a side dish - either fries, coleslaw or potato salad.
Yana n Shah both had beef burger gak, Kathy je yg try chicken burger..tak tanya pulak sedap ke tidak..rasanya sedap la kot pasal takda complain..hehehe.

Beef patty sini they use premium grade beef, and unlike burger bakar..patty dia nipis skit tapi dimasak garing..so bila makan terasa la garing2 burger tu..agak menarik jugak. :)

Satu lagi yang WAJIB try is the spicy wings...ini paling terbaek...
Chicken wing digoreng garing & crunchy then dipped in sauce yang rasa masam, manis & pedas...








Fries and potato salad






2x2 Beef burger





Beef Burger


Spicy Wings



Baby Lisa

Iftar yang simple n santai...enjoy sgt..walaupun burger bukan dihatiku :(..gitew2 je kalau burger2 ni..hehehe
Tapi syok sebab among friends...

Pada peminat tegar burger, kalau nak try something different (sekarang kan asyik burger bakar je kan) boleh la check this place out!!!

Kinnaree - Authentic Thai

As always, setiap tahun bulan puasa mesti kena ada session with my Manjers..Yana, Eira & Kathy.
Plan asal nak ke tempat lain..tutup pulak hari tu..so next plan Kinnaree Thai Restaurant at Jaya One
Dah penah try out tempat ni dengan hubby zaman bercita dolu-dolu..:P so dah tau la kesedapan dia..call and found out they only do buffet for puasa ala carte takda...hmm mula2 frust jugak..pastu tengok menu buffet menarik..price pun ok RM45+..
Konsep buffet kat sini, u can choose from whatever in the list of menu. Pastu baru diorang masakkan (Cook to order), kalau nak tambah order je lagi..buffet kan..order la sampai muak..:)
Bagus jugak style macam ni..kurangkan pembaziran..biasa buffet lauk je yang banyak..bukan semua sedap pun..end up membazir je..

Restaurant ni pernah dapat Time Out KL award for Best Thai/Indochinese Restaurant.. food memang awesome la..

Jaya One building layout tricky sikit, jenuh memusing kitorang, last2 rupanya naik lif yang dekat dgn parking terus je sampai to the restaurant...hmmmm...

Masa sampai restoran kosong lagi..yess..dalam hati order nanti cepatla sampai. Time tengah makan around 8 baru la restaurant pack. Rupanya crowd kat sini office worker and mostly chinese..so diorang takda la rushing nak berbuka..bagus jugak. Lega sikit :)





Buffet Menu


Camwhoring before berbuka





Menu wajib - Seafood Tom Yum!!!

Musamman Lamb - rasa manis2...agak kureng skit..

Green Curry Chicken..superb..

Thai Chilli Squid

Spring Roll

Fish Fillet

Golden Taro Bag - wahh yang ni highlight for the night..menu yang WIN!!!!
