[tag]Dim Sum[/tag] has always been my favorite choice when it comes to snapping food pictures. They are small and great for macro shots and looks good even if they taste bad lol. A revisit to Soon Hong Dim Sum Restaurant last weekend was a pleasant one because there were some new dim sum we tried.
The one located bottom right is fried siu mai. Quite surprising, first time I saw siu mai being deep fried. It was good.
Who can resist these cute looking mini egg tarts I just had to take a plate lol.
This dim sum has a funny name, lou shu mai. Do they resemble the shape of rats? A bit la.
Not sure what is this dim sum called but it was very nice! One of the best I had that morning.
No that’s not sharks fin on the century egg lol, just tong fun (glass noodles) only.
Lastly, the must-order siu mai. This gotta be the nicest photo of siu mai I have ever taken As I mentioned before the only problem eating at Soon Hong is that they don’t use trolleys with hot water, causing the dim sum can to get cold pretty quick and lose taste. So do request for them to be reheated, the staff is very helpful
On the first day of my KL trip early this month, SL and I went to [tag]C-Jade Express[/tag] in [tag]MidValley Megamall[/tag] for dinner. It was my second visit and I returned because of the food is reasonably priced and good too. It is located next to Yoshinoya and had been operating for a year. Besides Malaysia, it also has branches in Singapore (numbered at 33!), Hong Kong, Thailand.
I am certainly not the first to review this restaurant. There are many online reviews by bloggers and news articles regarding this restaurant. I ordered a Pork Chop Set which costs RM15.80. What I liked most is the rice. It is cooked together with bits of fried egg, making it really fragrant. The pork chop is topped with sweet sour sauce, a very delicious combination.
Since it was a set order, it came with a soft drink and a soup of your choice. I chose Bosch soup.. also known as ‘lo sun thong’ in Cantonese. The soup was ok.
SL ordered the Black Pepper Chicken Chop Set which is cheaper at RM14.80. Very nice too! If you are a fan of roasted duck noodles, I am glad to recommend you to try C-Jade Express. It is good I promise BTW these are some links to other reviews, feel free to have a look.
How much is 1 set with soft drink and coleslaw? RM7.70
Where did I have it at? [tag]KFC[/tag] [tag]Queensbay[/tag]
Did I use the 20% discount voucher? Was it accepted? Yes, after discount it’s RM6.60+
If I order it ala carte? RM5.30
Is it as big as expected? No, the promotion posters did a really good job portraying it
Is it bigger than its nearest competitor? Yeah, the burger is thicker
Was I satisfied? Yes. It tasted quite good actually. Its fillet is crunchier and certainly packed more fish meat (compared to its nearest competitor)
Will I try it again? Of course!
Which is nicer, KFC or its nearest competitor? IMO, both are equally good. But I don’t really like KFC’s side order. Still prefer good ol’ fries.
What is that nearest competitor? McD lo, who else?
Last comments: I wanted to try if KFC would give a money back if I requested for it. All I had to do was fill in a form at the cashier. I have always wondered if these fast food chains will live up to their words.. But I didn’t do it because the [tag]Alaskan Fish Burger[/tag] is good enough.
