Kopi & XoXo

By now, rasanya mesti ramai yang dah tahu that Nora Danish and the gang ada buka restaurant/coffee shop kat Bangsar, Kopi & XoXo. Mana taknya, hari2 penuh kedai ni, iyelar, ND kan antrara followers paling banyak on IG, berapa juta follower dah skang ni, mmg ramai la peminat dia.. I ni kategori peminat ke?..Hehehe..minat sesangat, tapi takla fanatik. Basically attracted to her beauty and personality. Very down to earth, humble and tak sombong. 

One fine day, since my sis ambik half day, she called and wanted to have lunch. Apa lagi, laju je ckp Kopi XoXo la.
Kedai bukak kul 12.30, kul 12 dah tercangak dah..memang first customer la gamaknya..hewhew..Ok la..tak la serabut sgt..
Few minutes after that dah start ramai dah, time kitorang makan, kedai dah penuh..pergghhh, business is good....

Menu simple jer sini, tak banyak sgt, very straight forward. Yang byk org order is Bubur Betty,  I nak try ni, my sis pun nak yg ni, hmm takkan dua2 nak makan benda sama. Ok fine I order la lain..black pepper beef set-kalau x sedap siap, nak mengamuk :P
Woh crowd favourite,  goreng pisang cheese - Gorpis pun ada kat sini, tapi sebab awal lagi so diorang belum start.











My Sis



Bubur Betty - RM14.90



Black Pepper Beef Set - RM14.90



Hazelnut Iced Latte & Ice Lemon Tea





Got ourselves some complimentary Ice Cream Stick
Betty was in da house, sadly ND takde :( . Have the same exact cardigan, sib baik tak pakai hari tu..




Luckily what I ordered turned out sedap, not bad jugak black pepper beef dia. Beef dia liat sikit, my opinion, patut potong kecik sikit, besau gedabak, tak muat nak suap dlm mulut yg kecik ni :) Best part rasa black pepper dia tak overwhelmed sangat. 
As for the bubur, well bubur is bubur la kan, nak sedap camne lagi, so yang penting is the lauk yang goes with it. In this case the kangkung belacan, to me very sedap. :) Spicy and the kangkung is still crunchy.
Ice cream pulak, we got it as a complimentary, maybe for the first few customers kot. Walaupun free, tapi sedap wei....its orange dried apricot flavour..memang terasa orange tu, mcm orange juice pastu terus bekukan..very very refreshing.. kalau korang ke sini jangan lupa have this for desserts.

Hopefully the cafe lasts, not bcoz of the celebrity status but by its great food and drink at a great location. And from what I had, I think they will.
Hope they will expand the menu with more great food.

JB Food - updates

Sebelum ni, dah ada few entry on food in Johor, but I guess nak tambah few spots since my last visit here..

1. Restoran Singgah Selalu
Memang terkenal dah kedai ni, siapa yg datang JB mesti singgah sini..price pun agak competitive. Before this I pernah suggest Sotong BBQ dia yang awesome tu, now nak tambah satu lagi menu harus cuba.
Pau Goreng - simple tapi sedap, pau kosong digoreng garing tapi kat dalam still lembut, cicah pulak kuah kari. Kari udang kering, macam pelik tapi sedap..mesti try bila kat sini.
 



2. Nasi Goreng Seafood Stulang
Kalau datang tempat ni on weekend, siapla menunggu sejam, memang ramai orang.
Nama kedai pun xde, so orang panggil restoran ni, Nasi Goreng Seafood Stulang, sebab menu utama - nasi goreng seafood and dia kat Stulang.
As a side dish boleh order Sotong Sambal with Petai. Petai tu tambahan, kalau x nak pun xpe.

Tu dia, nasi goreng on hot plate

Asam Pedas Madu Tiga - Kulai, Johor

Asam Pedas memang sinonim dengan orang Johor. Beza dengan Melaka I think Johor punya, pekat sikit kuah dia.
So while in Johor, teringin la nak try Asam Pedas..masa tu kat JPO. Google around, nearest to us was Asam Pedas Madu Tiga.
Hmm macam pernah dengar, famous gak kedai ni..orang Johor mesti tau citer..
Owner dia memang ada tiga isteri hence the name Madu Tiga..so kedai pun ada tiga..I think yang famous and pernah keluar TV yang kat Pekan Nanas tu. Tapi the one yg I pergi ni kat Kulaijaya.
Menu simple and clear cut, 

1. Asam pedas- pilih ikan apa yg suka, ada pari, jenahak-badan or ekor, and kembung. Harga varies ikut saiz. Nak bendi, tambah RM1 seikat. 
2. Sayur taugeh
3. Telur dadar

Sempoi..ikan tu kita pilih dulu dalam ice box, tgk mana yg berkenan nanti diorang ambik baru la dimasak..So gonna take quite sometime jugak la..especially kalau orang tgh ramai..Sabooo...






Ikan Pari (Ni anak ikan pari..my fav)



Jenahak - badan


Jenahak - ekor

Asam Pedas dia memang sedap, pekat and ikan fresh. Hubby siap menyudu lagi kuah dia ,that's how good it was..:)
In my opinion , patutnya diorang bagi ulam and sambal belacan sekali, kalau ada lagi kick..terangkat..

Carnaval Churrascaria - Meat Overload

Daging, daging & daging..Wah..to all meat lovers..this is the place to be...Carnaval Churrascaria, literally translate Steakhouse Carnival..so memang macam carnival la makan daging kat sini sebab buffet..
Makan la selagi boleh masuk perut..:)

Actually spread dia banyak jugak..ada 2 counter, salad counter and appetizer/main dish...so ada la spaghetti, nasi pun ada, chicken wing etc..

Tapi we all tak sentuh langsung..main reason here is to splurge on the meats...heheheh
Daging lembu and kambing pun ada..ada macam2 jenis..
Server tu akan datang dan potong atas plate kita..pastu kalau nak tambah lagi just panggil nanti diorang datang bawak lagi.. Mostly its grilled meat cuma dia punya marination yang berbeza2..so kena try semua la..tak ingat plak ada berapa jenis..
Woh and yg x boleh miss is the grilled pineapple..sedap..sllrrppp..teringat2..kambing dia pun sedap...
With the upcoming Ramadhan, buka puasa kat sini pun layan gak ni..dari makan buffet kat Hotel macam2 tu..better makan daging yang confirm sedap2.. :)

At time of writing, the prices are RM88 nett for adult, RM29 for children.. puas hati and berbaloi-baloi..

And dia ada promotion, tak salah if its a party of 5, dapat 20% discount camtu la..and ada hari ada promo lain..so better call them and find out pastu terus buat reservation..:)

Looking for a Kelantanese breakfast...nasib baik baca blog ni..:)
Tak payah carik2 lagi..Restoran Hatinie kat Seksyen 10 Shah Alam..The place to be..
Pure and authentic makanan Kelantan..yum..yummm
Kitorang sampai agak lewat gak.dekat kul 11 camtu, tapi orang still ramai..penuh kedai..
We tried nasi kerabu, bihun sup, and best of all ada satay for breakfast..yummyy...
Pastu ada juga nasi berlauk, nasi tumpang kuih akok (yang ni semua all flown in from Kelantan)..Ori tak ori..
For those looking for authentic kelantan breakfast direct from KB bole try tgk intagram kelatebreakfast.

And to me yang paling unik, ada lauk rumpai laut..first time jumpa and first time try..rasa agak unik..rangup, masin2 and pedas..
Maybe next time nak try their lunch menu la, looking at orang yg ramai macam ni sure sedap punya..biasa area sini makan kat Restoran Azire (laksa Johor dia power).

Mimpi Muor - Asam Pedas

Its quite hard to find a decent asam pedas shop in KL. Asam pedas pun banyak varieties..from Melaka, from Muar, utara punya pun ada.. Between Melaka & Muar asam pedas, tak tau pulak apa beza dia..
This Restaurant we tried is in Mutiara Damansara..as the name goes Mimpi Muor..so of coz la asam pedas Muar style.. Landmark dia..Balai Polis Mutiara Damansara..ada shoplot kat situ.. Office lunch crowd mmg ramai sini..iyelah mutiara damansara building offices dah makin banyak. Orang makin bertambah la yg nak makan lunch..

Macam2 jenis ikan ada - pari, jenahak, merah, parang..Harga semua ikut pasaran..so kinda varies la.. rasa dia sedap, just nice tak pekat sangat, boleh hirup pinggan..hehehe
Average sepinggan ikan tu dlm belas2 ringgit.





Ikan Merah




Ikan Jenahak - mcm terlebih minyak pulak..kasi kais buang skit minyak tu... :)
Ulam-ulam - the sambal belacan tak kick sangat



My menu :)


Tempat ambik lauk, choices lauk pun x la banyak sgt..cause main attraction is Asam Pedas

Mie Cord

First time tengok kedai ni ingatkan ada special masakan mee, Mee Cord.. rupanya its just nama kedai tu Mie Cord. Maybe nama owner dia Cord kot..heheeh

Ok, apa yang ada kedai ni.. Char Koay Teow & Mee Goreng Basah.
Payah nak jumpa char koay teow setanding Sany Char Koay teow Penang..

 

Verdict :
Rasa dia dah okay cuma terlebih manis. Makan satu pinggan jadi muak..Hmmm... dah habis tu terdengar orang meja sebelah order Char Kuey Teow Pedas #pasangtelingamejaoranglain ..  Maybe I should order extra pedas kot...okay, next time la..perut dah kenyang..

Conclusion nya : still tak boleh lawan my fav yg kat Penang, Sany Char Koay Teow (branch Sunshine Square) cooked by Sany himself..
So the hunt for good Char Koay Teow continues....




Air wajib - teh o limau..pakai lemon tu..Two Thumbs Up!!!


Char Koay Teow Special (RM6)




Benda wajib - cili jeruk, kalau cili padi lagi best..


Kedai still kosong sebab still early
