Jakes Charbroiled Steaks / Happy Birthday, Mum!

Happy 60th Mum :-)
Jakes Steakhouse, Damansara Heights
Add: 21 Jalan Setiapuspa, Medan Damansara, KL
Tel: +603 2094 5677
Mum had Lamb ribs with bbq sauce, and dad and myself each had a succulent Australian rib-eye (Dad's opted for a larger cut!). Starters were the always good Oxtail Soup (I had the Goulash), and fantastic Potato skins. Very yummy!
Jakes has been my family favourite for years ... why? Good value, consistent quality, good service, and pretty much a damn good steak!

Zillion Restaurant (Air-Con) in Bukit Tinggi, Klang

Dinner, 21st January

Yes, this is not Million restaurant, or Billion restaurant ... it is a ZILLION restaurant! :-)

Found this new restaurant in Bukit Tinggi, Klang ... Lala (kam-hiong style) was simply average, yam basket with sweet and sour pork filling was good, and minced-pork sizzling tofu was not as good as Section 17 PJ's!

Yu Ye, Dau and Jared visit me Casa

Saturday, 20th January
Ye, Dau and Jared came to visit my new home over the weekend ... Ta-powed Tai Chao dinner consisted of Char Choy soup, Foo-pay kuen (Spring rolls), Marmite Chicken, and veg. The dessert after, courtesy of the Chuas, who brought some beautiful pastries over from KLCC's Isetan (Sun Moulin) was excellent!

Yui-Tao Vermicelli and Hokkien Mee, off Jalan Ipoh

Lunch, 21st January

A little coffeeshop tucked away, off Jalan Ipoh ... 25 bucks was all it cost for Yui-Tao Mai Fun (Crispy battered fish head, with vermicelli in white broth), Hokkien Mee which was hand-made (Amazing texture to the noodles), Thai-style deep fried tofu, and Stewed pork with Vinegar. Amazing value, great makan!

Directions from The Map ... "Just behind HSCB Jalan Ipoh, Look out for a temple called CHOO something, then turn right, go straight. Food stall facing the temple just next to a big monsoon drain"

Pan Mee, Swee Hing Coffeeshop at OUG

Breakfast, 21st January

A bit of heaven for 4 ringgit ... Pan mee done the traditional way, 'noodles' were not shredded, in fact it was pieces of flour cooked in a delectable broth with tasty ikan-bilis and fragrant seaweed.
Mmmmmmmmmmh :-)

Saturday, 13th January
