Hakka Noodles @ Jalan Kulim, Bukit Mertajam

I am a sucker for Hakka Noodles and I would always order it if it’s available. One day I saw this Hakka food stall next to Kang’s Beef Noodle in Bukit Mertajam. And as far as I know, it is the very first in BM to sell Hakka noodle. So, I gave it a try with fairly high hopes it could rival the quality in KL.

The minced meat was OK but the noodles was a disappointment, pretty bland tasting. Sad to say it still has a long way to go before being able to match the Hakka noodles in KL. Even those prepared by foreigners taste better. The only consolation is the cheap price @ RM2.50 per bowl.

Oops, crappy photo due to backlight lol. Besides Hakka noodle, Yong Tau Fu and Lui Cha are also available. Although I am Hakka, I am not a big fan of Lui Cha at all lol. If you haven’t had Hakka noodle before but curious about the taste, you can probably give it a try.

Stadt German Cuisine & Bistro @ Kepong

My birthday was two weekends ago and we went to Stadt Restaurant to celebrate it via a simple dinner. Stadt is a German Cuisine & Bistro which was brought to my attention by one of my readers – Khor after he read my post about Ingolf Kneipe.
Actually, I was already here even before my birthday about 6 months ago when I just started working in Cyberjaya. I didn’t blog about it until now because I wanted to try more dishes. But, that didn’t turn out as expected, you will know why later lol.

Stadt’s menu is very extensive with various types of meat available like pork, chicken, lamb and seafood. Just for your information, grilled items have a minimum 25 minutes waiting time. And if you are a drinker then you’d be glad to know Stadt also serves imported German beers. I heard the best way to enjoy German cuisine is by having beer, lots of it lol.
Anyway, the first time we were here (6 months ago), we ordered the German Pork Chop which was RM19.90 that time.

J.Co Donuts @ Sunway Pyramid

It’s somewhat official: I have run out of food to blog, lol. So, let me dig up a super old entry that I should have post like 4 months ago. Back then, the craze for J.Co donuts was still strong. People would still line up at those absurdly long queues just to purchase the donuts, especially at the Pavilion branch.
Me, I wasn’t that curious enough. But, one day I noticed the surprisingly short queue at the Sunway Pyramid‘s branch so it was the perfect timing to try the famous donuts.

Half dozen costs RM10.95 at the time of purchase. From the top left: Al Capone, Caviar Chocolate, Jacky Chunk, Jcrown Oreo, Why Nut? and Berry Blue. The only ones worth mentioning for me are Why Nut? and Berry Blue.
I didn’t really like some of them especially Caviar Chocolate and Jacky Chunk – those are the ones with peanut and mini chocolate balls toppings. Why? Because it’s just a bit torture for my mouth to eat the really hard toppings. And the worse thing is, the toppings tend to get stuck between my teeth quite easily.
It could be a personal issue for me but still, I didn’t have this problem at all when eating Big Apple‘s donuts.

And thanks to the rude staff who attended to my order, I am biased against J.Co now, lol. I won’t talk about the incident but to be frank I don’t think I’d ever buy from J.Co again. Yeah J.Co your business is doing well and you have lots of fans lining up for your donuts. But, that doesn’t mean you can be rude and arrogant towards your customers.
That aside, I noticed only one thing from their donuts, too damn sweet. I know donuts are supposed to taste like that, but *THAT* sweet? Not impressed at all. Thanks but no thanks, I am going to stick with Big Apple instead – even though they are said to be a copycat of J.Co.
In your opinion, which is better? Big Apple or J.Co?
