Sweet temptation – cheese tart in KL

It’s the last month of the year, thought I should write something 🤗 – cheese tart it is. Not a big fan of cheese tart, but trust me, once you have tried the right one, you can easily fall in love with it…and below are my top pick 😁

No. 1 – Tokyo secret


It’s best to share with your bff 😍

I have tried Hokkaido and even the overrated Pablo cheesetart…not to my liking. Hokkaido cheese is not as good TS and Pablo is definitely not cheesy enough (Pablo has always emphasise on its creamy taste).


De Lava is not bad a choice if I have a crave for cheesetart and TS is difficult to reach. Newly opened at Kuchai area. I have tried their original flavour cheesetart. Priced at RM4.50. 


Uncle tetsu has been in town for quite sometime but I only get to try it this month in JB. The cheese filling is rather diluted, not the thick cheesy taste am expecting. Affordable at RM4.50/ piece. 

Lavender Bakery at Mid valley serves cheese tart too. This Lavender Hanjuku Cheese Tart received quite some good review. But still, can’t beat Tokyo Secret warm or cold ☺ At a price of RM6, definitely taste better when it’s warm…but on the sweet side. 



Empire Damansara Cafes and Restaurants

Just found this hidden germ in damansara. The underground design and rustic feel of this building is a reminiscent of my study time in Australia.  The first restaurant I tried on a Saturday afternoon is Jekyll and Hyde.

1. Jekyll and Hyde (G9)

This is a cafe by day and pub at night. They serve delicious pork ribs (with Hickory BBQ sauce). Not many patrons on a Saturday lunch hour and Wi-fi is not working on my phone for some reasons. All beef meal is ‘out-of-stock’ that day. We ordered two pork dishes which is the pork ribs and a pork patty. The portion is pretty small but it satisfied our tastebuds and stomach. 

 
2. Epique Coffee

It’s a quiet cafe during our day of visit. Staff are friendly and the mushroom bruschetta is a must-try. Ordered lemongrass and ginger tea and milo cafe latte. Like the beverages menu with Horlicks latte and Milo Affogato, should give it a try next…

  

3. Metal Box

I see the restaurant is quite busy on a Sunday morning,  could be because not many open at 10am here in empire damansara. Nevertheless, friendly staff and comfortable environment would be the selling point here to attract customers. Ordered eggs benedict with salmon and they serve with a twist here with croissant. Like the sautéed spinach and not too vinegary hollandaise sauce. Bon Appétit! *weak Wi-fi signal outdoor 😟

  

Pork noodles in Klang valley

Not a big fans of noodles…but die hard fans for POrK…here the pork noodles stall I have tried and they are goodilicious 😋

1. 老妈子猪肉粉 (Mama Love Restaurant)

Batu 9, Cheras

Long queue but very efficient service. Once arrived, we waited at the queue, and the waitress already taking order from us. There were another few waitress with diff roles, one assigning seats, one taking our ordering slit, etc. We got a seat and our order in less than 15 minutes in a busy restaurant like this. Sure I will revisit to try their dry pork noodles or may be the curry mee.

  

2. 妈子面 (Machi noodles)

34, Jalan 34/154, Taman Bukit Anggerik, Cheras, 56000. 

Another Sunday morning trying pork noodles at Cheras area. You can try the lower ground seats if the upstairs seats were full. Air-conditioned seats at downstairs. Service is pretty slow, you can order Yong Tou Fu as appetiser, as the stuffed food will come earlier. 

  

    
   

3. 靓靓猪肉粉 (Leng Leng Pork Noodles)

Bukit jalil


Claimed to have no MSG…and it’s true ✌🏻

Loving it – Eggs Benedict @Kuala Lumpur

Before I made my own perfect Eggs Benedict, I have tried a few in town. The best variation I have tried is the one in ABC, The Troika: crunchy bun, mild flavoured hollandaise, perfectly cooked poached egg and off course the melt-in-your-mouth savoury beef bacon.

ABC

My second choice got to be the Eggs Atlantic @Garage 51 & Mukha Cafe. Well, you got to try the Garage 51 “Awesome Garage Breakfast” also, which is a variation of Eggs Benedict with hash brown topped with smoked cured salmon, poached eggs and hollandaise sauce. Mukha Cafe’s serve this well-blanaced brunch with diced tomatoes and baby spinach, appetizing!

Awesome Garage Breakfast

Mukha

If you wanted to try one in Plan B, Publika’s Plan B served a better one, just because the poached egg was overdone on the day of my visit@ Mid Valley’s Plan B.
