Lucky Cuisine Restaurant- Trying 22 Dishes!

Hollaaa everyone! I’m lucky to be invited once again to Lucky Cuisine Sichuan Restaurant once again for their ala carte dishes! There are a total of 22 dishes that we’ve tried and I have narrowed it down to Top 3 Sichuan dishes and Top 3 of classic Chinese dishes which I personally liked. Please note that this is personally to my own liking and tastes, you might think differently. 

Let’s get it started! Here are my TOP 3 Sichuan Dishes: 

 

Sichuan Pickled Cabbage Fish

 TOP 1: Sichuan Pickled Cabbage Fish

Why? I love spicy food, that includes tomyam, sambal, belacan etc. I love the spicyness of this soup and the tangy sour taste that it gives. It is very appetizing at the same time refreshing. This is my first time trying it and I’m absolutely hooked to the taste! Can’t stop going for more rounds for this soup. 

 

Steam Spicy Pork Belly

TOP 2: Steam Spicy Pork Belly

Why? I love the ‘ma lat’ sauce with pork belly. It fits perfectly, such a good combo shouldn’t be missed. Give it a try and you will see what I mean! =)

 

Stir Fried Shredded Potato

TOP 3: Stir Fried Shredded Potato

Why? When the dish first came, I didn’t really noticed or pay much attention to it as it looks like a typical vegetable dish. But then I soon found out that it potatoes shredded to thin slices! I absolutely love the uniqueness and creativity of this dish and it taste so delicious!

ttdi murni cafe

Hollaaa everyone! Missed me? Sorry I have not been posting as often as I’m quite busy recently. Thank God for foood! Special thanks to Racheal founder of FoodiLIFEcious and Mr. Ronnie & Mr. Jason for hosting us at TTDI Murni Cafe. Without further ado, let’s get started!!

So, I’m sure all of you know about the famous Murni mamak right?  However, this is not the same as your regular Murni mamak as it  was handled by new management, they revamped their outlet and menu which is suitable for everyone including muslim friends!

A cafe that has a variety of Malaysian, Malay, Chinese, and western dishes.What more could you ask for, right!? Let me introduce to you my favorite Top 3 dishes from the cafe~~~~

TOP 1 Cucur Udang, RM8

My TOP favorite! Their signature Cucur Udang~! I’m sure most of you that have ate cucur udang ( also known as prawn fritters) before know that it has flour inside with shredded carrots & vege & prawn. This is my favourite as it is different from normal cucur udang. It is very crispy & has very minimal flour. Love the crunchiness of the dish.

 

chicken picatta

TOP 2 Chicken Piccata, RM17

I like the crunchy Chicken Piccata, For those of you who don’t know what Chicken Piccata is, it is nothing more than chicken breast cutlets, dredged in flour, browned, and served with a sauce of butter, lemon juice, capers, topped with my favorite spaghetti of all time = Aglio Olio. Great combination!

 

chicken chop

TOP 3 Black Pepper Chicken Chop, RM17

I love their black pepper sauce. Though some might say that it is too spicy, but it was just nice for me. <3

 

Curry Laksa RM11

 

Kam Heong Chicken Rice RM12

 

Mee Rebus RM11

Lucky Cuisine Restaurant 吉祥料理

Lucky cuisine dishes

Hollaaa everyone! Are you a fan of Sichuan food? There are few ways to spell ”Sichuan”, which includes Szechwan, or Szechuan. For all of you who don’t know about Sichuan cuisine, it is a Chinese cuisine originating from Sichuan province in southwestern China. It consists of bold flavors, particularly the pungency and spiciness resulting from a wide range use of garlic and chili peppers as well as the unique flavor of the Sichuan pepper. I was invited to try out their delicious Sichuan food in Lucky Cuisine!

[Iridescent Food] Mak’s Chee Authentic Wonton

Hollaaa everyone! Introducing Mak’s Chee, famous with its 100-year old recipe from the Mak’s Family, is set to open its second outlet at Pavilion Elite, a new wing of Pavilion Shopping Mall to the public on 1st May, 2017 following the huge success of its first outlet which was opened at 1 Utama last year.  For those people that love Hong Kong wonton noodles, need not fly to Hong Kong anymore as Mak’s Chee has an outlet in One Utama and now, Pavilion as well!

The difference between Mak’s Chee authentic wonton with our local wonton noodles is that Mak’s Chee wonton is made out of 99% sea prawns instead of our local wonton using pork meat.

Mak-chee-lady-iridescent

Story of Mak’s Chee 

Mak’s Chee is a quick casual restaurant serving authentic Hong-Kong-style wonton noodles, using a 100-year old recipe from the Mak’s Family.  The Mak’s Chee recipe is originated from a street-side eatery in Guangzhou before World War II by Mr. Mak Woon-Chee, known as the King of Wonton.  The war brought the Mak’s Family to Hong Kong and Woon-Chee’s lineal descendants carried on the recipe and tradition since then.

From there on, the Mak’s name grew in popularity in Hong Kong and the “gold fish shaped” wontons and the special homemade noodles received Michelin’s Bib-Gourmand title.  The recipe was complimented by a long list of famouspersonalities such as the Former President of the Republic of China – Chiang Kai-Shek and Former First Lady Soong May-Ling, the infamous food critic Chua Lam as well as renowned American chef, author & TV host Anthony Bourdain.

So, now that you know the origins of Mak’s Chee, Let’s move on with the mouth watering pictures of fooooood!

[Iridescent Food] Kouzu Malaysia, TTDI

Hollaa everyone! I’m back with a new food review. Kouzu, located at the center of TTDI neighborhood, along the street with other cafes nearby. A mixture of Japanese Tapas Bar & Restaurant, known as Japas.

Parking was quite easy to find as we were lucky to find one right in front of Kouzu. Though weekends might be more crowded as more people come out to chill & dine in Kouzu.

Kouzu Interior

P1030552

One thing that we’ve noticed when we walked in is the colorful Japanese styled- manga paintings on the walls of the restaurant which we really liked!

P1030549

Hot green tea for me as I didn’t want to drink anything cold plus it’s better for digestion for all of the food that we will be trying~ ^^

Kouzu Food

P1030556

Sashimi Salad

My personal favorite appetizer from Kouzu. Perhaps because I’m a big fan of sashimi & I like it as they are fresshhh!


P1030574

Roasted Pumpkin Salad

An alternative for people who don’t eat sashimi/raw fish. Pumpkins are nice & crunchy, just the way I like it. But of course nothing beats the sashimi, at least in my opinion (teehee).


P1030560

Pan Seared Tuna Foie Gras

Lovee the texture of the tuna, it is cooked just right combine with the foie gras, at first I thought it was a rather an unusual combination but when I tried it, it blends together very well.


P1030598

Baked Roll Sushi 

    Think cheese baked rice + sushi roll. What more can I say?                                         Oishiii!


P1030564

Creamy Baked Oyster

Total of five delicious succulent oysters covered in cheese topped with masago.. delicious! Enough to share around with your friends (or do I mean friend?)!


Kouzu_Stoned_grilled_sirloin

Stoned Grilled Sirloin

How often are you served with sirloin steak on a grilled stone served with potato cubes with a sprinkle of herbs & spices on top?  Tender, juicy, deliciousss! One of my personal favorite & for a reasonable price! Definitely a MUST try!


P1030614

Japanese Escargot Pizza

 Good snack to chill with your friends with a glass of beer. Crunchy escargot & look at the massive toppings! Yums!


Kouzu_Salmon_pizza

Salmon Pizza

Another choice of pizza topping, Kouzu’s 4 inch Salmon Pizza. The size is a bit small for me, but great finger food snack. 😉


Kouzu_Sanuki_udon

Sanuki Udon

My favorite pasta dish here! Think aglio olio + udon! A Must try for pasta lovers. Appetizing & a lil bit spicy which I absolutely love~


Kouzu_Ishiyaki_stoned_bowl

Ishiyaki Stoned Bowl (Donburi)

Kouzu_Sashimi_avocado

Sashimi Top Avocado

Kouzu_Grilled_Truffle_Beef

Grilled Truffle Beef

Ishiyaki Stoned Bowl (Donburi)– the most fulfilling comfort food in Kouzu. Topped with tender unagi, scallops, vinegared prawns, capelin roe & a runny egg, all perfectly proportioned. As for the Sashimi Top Avocado, well, its sashimi again. Anything sashimi is my favorite! Last but not least in the donburi category, is the Grilled Truffle Beef. Absolutely tender or juicy! The picture tells it all. One of the best Beef donburi I’ve eaten. =)


Kouzu has also a wide range of Yakitori, consisting of Wings, Sirloin, Rock Lobster & Shitake. All very delicious & suitable for snack & chilling. Kouzu’s best seller, the Sirloin Yakitori & also my favorite among all of them!


Pair Kouzu’s Japas food with a wide selections of drinks to chill & dine!

Kouzu Drinks
