In Season Musang King Durian Buffet – RM49.90 @ Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Dear readers and friends, some of you might already know that I am venturing into the F&B business specializing in fruit related products. In fact, some of you had already ordered durians via In Season’s Facebook page and I even delivered them to you personally.
I am happy to have your support and based on the positive feedbacks so far, I think we are headed the right direction and we will strive to maintain our service and quality. This is a very hands-on project for me and I have been cutting up a lot of fruits recently.
Currently, we are heavily focused on durian because it is a seasonal fruit. But when this season is over, we will come up with many other products such as 100% fruit juices, homemade ice cream, yoghurt and other handmade snacks.

Today, we will be launching our largest promotion to date, which is the Musang King durian buffet @ RM49.90/pax. If you had followed my postings on this blog, you will notice that durian is featured quite frequently – especially those related to buffet. As a consumer myself, I fully understand that honesty and business conduct of the seller whether it’s a huge corporation or a road side hawker stall, both are are equally important.
That’s why we hand-pick only the good quality Musang King durians from our own orchard at Raub to be served in the buffet. Also, we won’t serve a large yet low-quality fruit solely for the purpose of filling you up. If the durian served is not suitable to be consumed, we will dispose of it and replace accordingly – these are our promises.
However, if you find that durian buffet is not your cup of tea, you could still place an order via online or my personal mobile (provided in the In Season Facebook page). Thanks!

Top Spot Seafood Food Court @ Kuching

Rooftop dining is not uncommon for fine dining restaurants and bars. But what about seafood in a hawker setting? Well, in Kuching there’s this place called Top Spot Food Court where half a dozen of restaurants – mostly serving seafood (halal options available) operate on the roof of a 6 storey car park.

Top-Spot-Seafood-Kuching

The environment is dim but airy and always buzzing with activity. If you are staying in the hotels along the Kuching Waterfront, Top Spot is reachable on foot within minutes.

Fresh-Fish

Although you could sit down and order the dishes off the menu, it is more recommended that you browse and pick the seafood yourself – provided if you know how to judge a fresh fish. But from what we saw, the seafood variety here is good and more importantly fresh. So the tastiness pretty much depends on the chef’s skills. Anyway, we chose Ling Loong Seafood among the available options simply because the name sounded nice.

Lobster-Prawns

The star dish of the night has to be the Grilled Spiny Lobsters, which were wrongfully listed as prawns in the menu. So you could imagine our surprise when these meaty lobsters arrived on our table. They were cooked perfectly, as the chunky sized lobster flesh was sweet, juicy and succulent.

Volcano Shabu Shabu @ Shaftsbury Square, Cyberjaya

Currently, Volcano Shabu Shabu is the only steamboat option in Cyberjaya and a halal one too. So there is no wonder they’re one of the busier restaurants in Shaftsbury Square.

Shabu-Shabu-Pot

There are three types of soup: chicken, tomyam and vegetarian. The soup’s flavor only starts to appeal towards the end of the meal when you boil the noodles with it. Each person get his/her own pot since it’s shabu shabu and there are plenty of sauces to choose from the self-service sauce bar. But despite the choices available none seemed to hit the spot for me.

Shabu-Shabu-Set

Shabu-Shabu-Mix-Set

Honestly speaking the food here is not cheap and the quality is nothing to shout about. The vegetables and processed food stuff taste exactly as predicted but the seafood could be a little fresher. The meats especially the beef has an unsettling odd color with an annoying piece of fat attached. Maybe I live in a steamboat town so my opinion is harsher but I truly expected better for an individual set that starts from RM18.90.
