Y.HK BBQ Chicken Wings @ Chu Yu Restaurant, Taman Sri Sinar (Segambut)

I have made some decent food discoveries in my housing area over the last few weekends and Y.HK BBQ Chicken Wings at Taman Sri Sinar is one of them. I wouldn’t go as far as calling it the best until I have tried them all, but it is pretty darn good. So to any BBQ chicken wings lovers out there and especially those in Kepong and Segambut, you owe it to yourself to try this out.

The price is on par with others in town, RM4.20 for a pair if I remember correctly. They are not exactly cheap but it’s not like you are going to break your wallet by ordering dozens of them. The term ‘perfectly barbecued’ will be best to describe the chicken wings. The skin is crispy without any burnt edges while the meat is tender and juicy inside, and even the usually discarded tip parts were edible. A combination of experience, patience and attention to detail at work here.

Sumi Nabe Bincho-tan Charcoal Steamboat @ M-Avenue, Segambut

The special thing about Sumi Nabe‘s steamboat is their Bincho-tan charcoal-fired stove which they use as the restaurant’s main marketing tool. If you are wondering if it is effective, well I did dine here because of that. And the price seemed quite alright too considering it is only RM37 for a two person set. Usually it is around RM14.50 to RM18 per pax in Kepong area.

Charcoal

Here’s the imported Bincho-tan charcoal (備長炭) they use for the steamboat. It is also known as white-charcoal, produced in Japan and has great benefits like not emitting any smoke and burns longer than the usual charcoals. So it is suitable to be used in a closed and air-conditioned area. Needless to say the charcoals also contribute a good part of the sum you pay for the steamboat at Sumi Nabe.

Restoran Yu Ai Seafood Noodles @ Segambut

Despite the many good reviews about Yu Ai restaurant’s seafood noodles at Segambut, I have to disagree with most of them. In fact, this will be the last place I would consider for a bowl of noodles simply because the soups are just laden with MSG.

No doubt the noodles are brimming with seafood and they are fairly fresh too. But they also come with a hefty price tag. Do expect to spend more than RM20 if you were to indulge in the most elaborate order with a drink included.

Ho Ho Steamboat with Roe Crabs @ Jalan Segambut, KL

If you see a steamboat post in my blog then it means the rainy season is here again – simply because it is the only time I would crave for steamboat. Although we went to Ho Ho Steamboat again, this time it was at their Jalan Segambut branch. This outlet is different from the rest in the sense that the premise is not the conventional shop lot but more of a private mansion.

The usual steamboat set, same price as the one we had at Menjalara, RM15.50 per head with a minimum order of 2 pax. The portion might look small, judging by the look of it but the amount given is actually just nice to satisfy two average adults. As for the ingredients’ freshness and quality, I do not have any complaints whatsoever considering the price paid.
