Wong Poh Seafood Restaurant, Bukit Mayang Mas in PJ

Dinner with my Dive Buddies
Tuesday, 31st October 2006

Welcome home, Ah Siang!

Location : Near to kampong chempaka but not quite there.
Using the LDP from Sunway to kelana jaya direction, look out for the Catholic Church on the left hand side. Immediately after the church, turn left and you
will come to a small roundabout. Keep to your left and turn 9 o'clk (3 o'clk direction will lead u to kampong chempaka).
Go up straight and the road will lead u to turn to the right curve (u should see the signboard 'baywatch' cafe/pub on your right), follow the road and go straight up all the way down . and u should be able to
watch out for Wong Poh Restaurant on the right hand side, which is located at an older shoplots (not the new one).

Sampled dishes: Butter Crab with fried man-tou, Salted-egg Crab, Kam-hiong Lah Lah, Marmite (Supposedly Guiness, but sure tasted like Marmite!) Pork Ribs, To-fu, and Vege.

The damage: RM$135 (for 5 of us)

The haze is still here...

Shah Alam's Air Pollution Index indicates that we are at '79' . Where on earth were these guys measuring this? Certainly not at the state mosque ... COVERED IN HAZE! Grrrrr....

Fisherman's Cove @ Starhill, KL

Cuisine: Fusion-styled seafood dishes.
Address: LG10, Feast Village Starhill Gallery 181 Jalan Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur
Phone: 03-2782 3848

The starter was superb, and it included a beautiful prawn sashimi with wasabi, as grilled Barramundi and some good skewered prawns. Mmmmmh... and the large mussels! At nearly RM$200 for this platter it had better be good!
For mains, I had grilled pacific turbot fillet, nice!
And for sweet, oops dessert, I had tiramisu with the most beautiful french chocolate Valholla.
Choice of wine? Andrew picked a beautiful bottle of Meursault (A French white, quite exquisite!), and we had a 2nd one too!

Kogetsu Japanese, Saujana Subang

Monday, 16th October 2006

Kogetsu is an excellent Japanese in the beautiful resort of Saujana Golf and Country Club in Subang ... Good set meals (A bit pricey!), but the ala-carte is reasonably priced for such an authentic, consistent and yummy place. BTW, the Asahi Super Dry was goooooood. My third trip here ... thanks to work!
