Lamb Curry with Rice @ Kluang Station, Ikano Power Center
Was doing some shopping alone at Ikano Power Center not long ago and settled for a quick lunch at Kluang Station. Of course, I did some homework (looking at what other bloggers’ reviews) before that, just to know what’s good and bad.
Apparently the Hainanese Chicken Chop was one of the popular items. But, I didn’t order it because it was widely panned for its not-so-traditional Hainanese style and mediocre taste. Do you see the influence of food blogs now? If what they said is true then I’ve just saved myself from a disappointing meal. But, if the critics are wrong then I would have missed out on a good chicken chop.
Anyway a cup of hot Kluang coffee @ RM2.60 was a must have for me, simply because it was one of the reasons I visited [tag]Kluang Station[/tag] – to try the much talked about coffee. Wouldn’t it be weird not to order coffee here for your first visit? It’s like not ordering white coffee for your first trip to Ipoh, lol. I don’t know how similar it is to the authentic Kluang coffee.. it tasted just like normal coffee I could get in any local coffee shops. But, I would certainly want to visit Kluang one day and try the real stuff.
Scanning through the menu with the Hainanese Chicken Chop being ignored on purpose, I found a rather interesting dish – Lamb Curry with Rice @ RM8.90. Being a sucker for [tag]lamb curry[/tag], I placed an order for it immediately.
As you can see it also comes with a fried egg and some salad. Taste wise it was pretty good, with the lamb [tag]curry[/tag] cooked the way I liked it – thick and spicy. Watery lamb curry is just a no-no for me. How I wished they could be more generous on the curry gravy to make the meal more satisfactory for me. Hey, not liking watery curry doesn’t mean I couldn’t have more gravy right, lol.
I had to wait for the people who were seating in front of the Kluang Station sign board to leave before I could take this photo, lol.
So tell me have you tried the Hainanese Chicken Chop before? Do you like it from a non food-blogger’s point of view? Because I noticed that out of 5 tables, at least 3 of them have had a plate. This shows its popularity despite the not so favorable reviews. By the way, Kluang Station does not charge service charges unlike the other kopitiams too. A good thing I would say.

This is actually the article or so called review I submitted to BestFoodJunction’s Restaurant Review Contest held earlier this year. Somehow the the magazine either went scammy suddenly, or they simply do not bother anymore, because there was no update on contest. Based on the contest’s rule, I am not supposed to publish this, else

I have been eyeing to try Toast Box for a long time because it has managed to attract a beeline of customers constantly. Unlike J.Co, where the queue dies off after the donut craze went down. Besides, their toasts looked really tempting because they prepare them openly. Good tactic to create buzz and attract customers.

This is about a dinner SL and I had at Italiannies The Curve last year which I didn’t blog about. Well, sometimes I intend for a second visit to consolidate both experiences into a post for the purpose of showing more food. But, [tag]Italiannies[/tag] isn’t cheap so the second visit didn’t materialize. As a result,

I just returned from attending my sister’s wedding held in [tag]Penang[/tag] two days ago. Just before I boarded my train back to KL Sentral, I treated my family a dinner at Black Canyon Coffee, AEON Seberang Perai City. The reason we chose [tag]Black Canyon[/tag] [tag]Coffee[/tag] is because we thought it was the nicest looking restaurant

Waroeng Penyet Restaurant serves Traditional Indonesian Food and can be found at The Curve, Mutiara Damansara. It is a relatively new restaurant, considering the fact that it was opened last year by 4 Indonesians living in Singapore. I came to know about the restaurant through their flyers while shopping at The Curve few weeks ago.

OldTown Kopitiam at Queensbay has more food and drinks available for order compared to the other branches. One of them is Twin White Shake, a much thicker version of the usual iced [tag]white coffee[/tag]. Priced at RM3.80, it is only available cold and its serving size is very small. It was a nice try, but

So I was on a mission to [tag]Ipoh[/tag] for [tag]white coffee[/tag] last weekend, thanks to [tag]8TV[/tag]‘s [tag]HoChak[/tag]. Few weeks ago, the last segment of the programme introduced Ipoh white coffee. The moment I finished watching it, I said to myself, “Dang I must get some of those!” And whaddya know, according to a camera-selling-uncle I
