Fresh mango & smoked duck breast in mango sauce
This definitely opens up my appetite! Go try it! It’s definitely worth it. Delicious duck breast meat accompanied with refreshing slightly young mango.

Crispy Fried Tofu with Salt & Pepper
This is very addictive. Especially with the chili sauce dip. *Licks lips*

   

Special long boiled soup of the day

Stir-fried Pork Neck Meat in XO Sauce

 

White Lotus Seed Paste Mooncake (Single egg yolk) (RM112, 185g x 4pcs)
The mini version is low sugar. (RM138, 90g x 6pcs)
I find their lotus seed paste much smoother than the others. That’s because they use only the finest white lotus seeds from Hunan, China to make their mooncakes! Apparently, these white lotus seeds are very rare to find, and they used to be served only to the King.

Mei-Xin Premium Egg Custard Mooncake (RM88, 60g x 6 pcs)
This one is just heavenly. It smells so, so good. When I took a slice of it, I just wanted more and more. Although it may be a lil’ jelak after a while, it’s just too good not to have another piece. Besides, they made it small enough, you can just pop the whole thing in your mouth if you want!

Assorted Snow Skin Mooncakes (RM24 per flavour, 60g x 2pcs)
I love the Pomelo Dessert one, it has passion fruit and pomelo in it. Very refreshing and sweet!
The Devil Dark Chocolate Crunch one is just as good! It’s not too sweet (Dark chocolate, duh!) and it has bits of crispy rice (Like Rice Krispies cereal).

Here’s the price list to make things easier for everyone. (: (UPDATE: Karen posted a better quality picture here!)
Just click on it to enlarge it so you don’t have to squint your eyes.. 😀
Available for purchase at Private Kitchen, AEON and Jaya Grocer.


Mei-Xin Mooncakes are famous in Hong Kong! Check out this video featuring their ambassador, Kelly Chen.

Fresh Shrimps Or Crabmeat Cocktail (RM12.90)
Garnished with our special concotion of cocktail sauce

Baked Fresh Premium Scallops (Half Dozen: RM28.90)
Scallops baked with white wine bechamel sauce and cheese
These are so good . The scallops are just divine . Big fresh scallops drowned in creamy bechamel sauce and CHEESE ! If I didn’t use a spoon to lift the scallop up, you can’t even see the scallops . That’s how much sauce there is . If you kept your bread, you could even use the leftover sauce to spread on your bread.

 

Escargots Bourguinonne (1 Dozen: RM28.90, 1/2 Dozen: RM16.90)
French Snails baked in chablis garlic sauce
The escargots are relatively easy to dig out , some just fall right out, which is good .

Oh yeah, Chloe came along with us for the food review . That’s her first escargot, her first time trying ! 😀

The Ship’s Salad (RM13.90)
Freshly selected lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumber sticks, dressed with turkey ham, boiled egg and croutons, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
I don’t really fancy thousand island sauce, so I opted for the French dressing instead . The croutons were a little too big for my liking though .

  

Roasted Rack of Lamb (RM42.90)
Lamb rib topped with kebab sauce served with broccoli florets, corn on cob and baked potato

Charbroiled Rib Eye Steak (RM54.90)
A tender and succelent steak served with prime vegetables, corn on cob, baked potato and a bowl of salad
The praised signature main course . It’s tender, juicy and each bite just hits you. That oomph !

 

The Ship is always full . So do remember to reserve a table if you do not enjoy waiting in line . By 6.30, the place is packed . But remember!! On the eve of festive days or special occassions, they don’t take reservations.

Most of us always make new resolutions to keep fit, go to the gym often and eat healthier food . But how often do we keep that resolution and continuously eat healthy food ? I’m pretty sure you have your regular places for organic food and such .. But how about trying a new place ? Try The Salad Bar. Worth your time, trust me , especially when you’re into greens . ^^ I love my veggie and I definitely love salads . Yums


Spicy teriyaki chicken salad with spicy vinegar dressing (Large : RM11.90 , Half Portion : RM6.90)
My favourite salad here, I like the sauce and how spicy it is . Besides, it’s lean meat, makes me feel better of myself . Healthy living . 😛

Pumpkin Soup with croquettes
*Slurp . I seem to be eating more pumpkins lately .. Anyway, this bowl of pumpkin soup is super good . It feels like slurping spoonfuls of blended pumpkins . Haha . Try it out !


High Energy Superman salad with wheatflakes (RM11.90 for full portion)
This is the full size . Half size is like 3 quarters of this . Really , both portions are uber huge .. Be careful when you’re choosing the size for your salads .

 Club Sandwich (RM7.90)


Amazing how such a simple thing can taste so good . Mum and I make this all the time .. But this is different compared to what we usually make . Yummy .

Dory Carbonara (RM7.90)
Nothing big to shout about, but it’s good stuff .

Spicy Chicken (RM7.90)
But this one is different. Looks like mee goreng kan? But it doesn’t taste like that ! *licks lips*
Spicy spooketi (Trying to be lame here, as Halloween is coming), aromatic basil flavour with slices of chicken meat. I’d definitely order this everytime I visit The Salad Bar.

Homemade Yogurt with honey + 1 topping (RM4.50)
THE YOGURT IS SO GOOD . You can tell the difference , really . If you can’t, go buy the cup yogurt from the supermarket, and buy this .

Mm . My favourite Jap restaurant in PJ . I loved this place ever since I was a little girl . Really :3
It’s so homely, so comfortable . It’s such a neighbourhood Japanese restaurant. I love it .

7 types of mushrooms in a single dish ! How awesome is that?! Sadly for you , it’s one of the daily specials, so wear your lucky undies , maybe you’d be lucky enough to be able to order these lovely mushrooms .

Another of the daily specials. The soup is fabulous . A must try !!! That’s if … You’re lucky . (;

Sanma Shioyaki (RM16.50)
Mummy introduced this fish to us very long ago .. Then prices hiked up . So we stopped having it at home . I’m so glad to be able to have it again ! It’s super duper sweet . It’s so explainable , it’s just different . I promise you, you’d like it very much if you’re a fish person . 😛

Squid squid squid . Hot stuff . Something nice for tea time while you chat away with your friends. (Daily Specials too)

Hokano Roll (RM30)
There’s 101 things inside the Hokano Roll .. … … Just kidding, who am I fooling ? The photo is just up there ..
BUT! It does have prawn tempura , crabstick inside and eel, avocado and tabiko on the outside . That’s almost 101 to me for a Sushi Roll . It’s super duper yummy, do try it out !
Or you could opt for the Spider Roll (RM16.50) ,  Kano Roll (RM21), Philadelphia Roll (RM12.95)  . They’re my top favourites . Even the Spicy Salmon Roll (RM8) , it’s just so fresh, so delicious!
Kano roll has cream cheese and eel inside, whereas philadelphia roll has smoked salmon and cream cheese

Sashimi Moriawase (RM54.90)
Superb . They’re fresh , and just simply delicious . My favourite one is the butter fish . Yummy .

Tenzaru Inaniwa Udon (Cold) (RM17.50)
I normally order the Zaru/Ocha soba cause it’s yummy, filling and cheap . This is the first time I’m trying their Tempura cold udon .. The udon is awesome ! But I still prefer the zaru/ocha style .

 

I’ve been busy all week with assignments (and as well as gaming too much) , hence the ultra late posts . I’ll promise to update asap ! (:

Last night , I had dinner at this little place behind Maybank (nearer to the construction area) at Uptown for dinner. I had a great dinner. It’s relatively new, so you guys should go check it out and give some of your feedback to the restaurant! (;

_MG_1000

Herbal drink of the day – Barley with special herbs

_MG_1093

Love at First Sight Floral Tea (RM5)

_MG_1002

Long Spring Rolls (RM10)
Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside . It’s a little oily on my opinion , but that’s what makes it’s so yummy . Isn’t it ?

_MG_1028

Shredded Chicken with Private Kitchen Special ‘Ma La’ Sauce (RM12)
Initially, I thought the cucumbers were the main ingredient accompanied by the shredded chicken. Apparently not ! Silly me .. Anyway , the shreded chicken is a little spicy and sour at the same time accompanied with pickled cucumbers like the ones you find in acars .

_MG_1019

Long Boiled Soup of the Day (RM6)
This boiled soup is definitely a must have to accompany the other dishes that you would be ordering. Firstly, it cleanses your palate , secondly, it just refreshens you and ready to move on to main dishes. Heads up for you guys, every bowl would contain different amount of meat and arrowhead.

_MG_1036

Cantonese Chicken with Sand Ginger Sauce
I’ve tried many kinds of steamed chicken , this is relatively good. It’s different from the normal ‘pak cham kai’ you have at chicken rice stalls as it has more ginger to it. Honestly, I hate ginger. But for all you ginger-haters out there, go ahead and take a bite. Trust me, it’s so mild, you can’t even taste a tinsy bit of ginger.

_MG_1041

Private Kitchen Stir Fried Prime Beef Fillet with Strawberry Pepper Sauce (RM28)
I had a shock when the lady served the dish and said it’s stir fried with STRAWBERRY pepper sauce. I thought she was joking. Goodness gracious me ! This is the best fusion version of stir fried black pepper sauce beef ! Juicy meat accompanied with strong pepper taste with a strawberry after taste. The strawberry doesn’t overpower the meat nor the pepper sauce. It was just divinely perfect .

_MG_1060

Private Kitchen Sautéed Chinese Chives with Dried Shrimp and Shredded Dried Cuttlefish (RM18)
Not many would enjoy this dish . It’s the Chinese Chives I tell you .. Also known as garlic chives, it’s quite an aquired taste especially to those who rarely eat this veggie.

_MG_1055

Pan Fried Pork Chop Lemongrass (RM25)
This is another fabulous dish . First bite’s the best, as you can instantly taste the lemongrass with a hint of citrus. I treat this like a snack, something you can just munch on as you’re in a conversation with your company.

_MG_1079

Deep Fried Pork Ribs with Special Salad Sauce (RM32)
Juicy tender pork ribs with a bold hint of mustard mayonnaise . I’m not too sure what is in the salad sauce, but it taste so delicious . End of discussion, you’re ordering this!

_MG_1073

Portugese-Style Fried Rice with Braised Pork Belly & Seafood (RM16)
Nothing big to shout about. It’s fried rice but ala portugese !

_MG_0997

A warm cosy atmosphere, perfect place to bring your parents for a Hong Kong cuisine dinner!
