Eating Weekly : The Latest Eats of the Week

Last week I was completely bz going makan with my friend who just came back from Kangar. Everyday was just makan all that has left me fat, happy and very very broke. Rakuzen, some sushi place that looks like yakuza hideout in Pyramid, Food Foundry at some sesat ulu place in PJ , Pantai Seafood , William's and Shogun. many places i lazy to write in detail. I'll just give the gist of it.


Rakuzen is pretty nice. I reserved for 7 ppl and we even got our own private room which is really cool. Then I wondered how do ppl get the attention of the waiter? (Bcuz the room is private with closed doors). Thats when i heard *clap clap*. Ooh...from what I saw the ppl in the other room just clapped twice to get the waiter's attention.
At first i was quite shy to do that. What if i clap like a sohai and nobody layan me? What if i clap loud loud then everyone in the restoran come in the room and whack me? But phew luckily thats the official way. Budget to eat at this place would probably be around RM 50 ++.

Yakuza Black Sushi Restaurant

Next is sushi again because my friend has a craving for sushi. This time its the yakuza hideout in Pyramid. It's a new place ithink the name was Senyu Japanese Restaurant. It's more of a higher class of sushi, not like Sakae or Sushi King.

See...the sushis also have a longer "syok" part. More generous with their "liu" like the salmon above can see panjang panjang wan.

It's a very nice place but the price is around double that of sushi king.

Food Foundry

The third place is Food Foundry located at a secluded part in Petaling. The food is really completely average. I think their most famous is the multi layer cake called Mille Crepe which i did not know so i didn't order. But it's safe to say the place is nothing super keng...i think it's best benefit is it is very secluded and quiet.

Pantai Seafood

Now it's time for seafood!!! CRABS!!! so much CRAB! 2 crabs come about rm35. We had 4 styles (8 crabs).

Butter - Good creamy sauce great with man tou.
Salty egg - fail!
Marmite - fav. here
Pepper and salt - aiks this one ar..i thought just plain with pepper and salt. Turns out got some batter and tastes more like spicy chilli. But not bad la.

We also had this 2 style vege...very nice. Kai lan top half deep fried then bottom steamed i think. Or isit braise? tak tau la

something liddat la. Then got this drunken heah...fuuuuuuuuuuuiyoh syok. The soup oso dam keng. Very nice ,i like.

And now ladies and gentlemen the greatest f*ckup of the night. This f*cking Scotland clam. I was looking for those long shelled clams (bamboo clams?) that I used to order. But i dunno the name. So i tunjuk the waiter i want long shell want. Come out this kanasai one. I thought should be ok one mana tau 7 pieces f*cking RM120!!!! Cilaka...almost same price as 8 crabs leh. Wah lau eh
... kek sim ar kek sim!! It is nice but really don't think worth RM120 lo. Haihhh SHIT!

William's Italian Mamak

Nextup is the usual fav. William's mamak. This time we tried Sotong Bang Bang, Triple H sandwich and the pizza.

Sotong Bang Bang - not to my liking. Its in kind off a chilli tomato sauce with seafood and sotong. I was expecting the sotong to be stuffed with cheese ker or sumting. But fail la for me.

Triple H sandwich - basically just some bread with meat then pattaya it.

The pizza - fuuwah...the topping overflowing like giler. Need spoon to scoop the pizza up..all the liu dropping here and there.Syok.

They also hav indomee bacon and cordon bleu salmon.


Our final stop is Shogun buffet at Pyramid. The thing about buffet is, ppl feel like they need to eat back enough to cover cost.
So thats abit not so stylo. Food should be enjoyed not forced down your mouth to make shit out ur ass. So for me buffet's lackthat kind of elegance and class. Well then you ask, why not just enjoy it slowly la. Buffets you actually pay alot. So there will always be this feeling that I need to eat my money's worth. So i think buffet's are really not my style.

But anyway Shogun had a pretty extensive selection. These are the 2 plates that i took. The sashimi surprisingly not nice. I thought sashimi is just a piece of meat...all taste same one. I was wrong. This one does taste like sashimi but...its probably the freshness, but i think its also a large part because of the way it was cut. The cuts of meat were not..hmm how do you describe it?
Just not comfortably bite size. (Suang kou?) The price was RM55++. But to be honest i'd take any decent sushi restaurants over buffet here anytime.

Luna Bar @ near Jalan P Ramlee

This place is located in Menara PanGlobal near KLCC. To park right infront costs RM10. Yikes. Thats where the "jockeys" are.
Theres a special secret way to go up to Luna Bar .
1st you hafto take a lift to 20 sumting floor. Then hafto go dunno where to change lift. Then naik to 30 sumting then hafto take tangga up. Fuuh dam complex. But can ask the guard for directions.

But Wow the ambiance in this place is superb. Its located on the roof of PanGlobal, with a breathtaking view of the KL city lights. And its quiet and secluded just the perfect place to just hang out and chat. Or maksiat.

I went with my dear Oo Oo and Heah Heah. And they make me finish this GIANT cup of dunno wat name drink with vodka. Ah yes its called the "Frozen Space Cookie" (RM29). Make me mabuk only. But my drink much nicer than theirs. :D

Heng Kee Bah Kut Teh @ PJ Old Town

Jalan 1/10,
Petaling Jaya, Selangor

Jeng jeng jeng!!! What special style of bah kut teh is this?
I have only seen bah kut teh like this once in Sandakan.
All the different types of dishes are separated. This way each bowl of soup absorbs the character of the content.

But the taste is just OK la. Different style abit lo. But i think abit mahal oso here.
Forgot how much but abit more than normal.

Loong Foong Roast Duck @ Tmn Mayang

Loong Foong Seafood

*Yea its Loong Foong seafood restaurant but its famous for the duck.

This roast duck really sedap oh. The skin is really nice and when you put it in your mouth the flavor melts perfectly with the meat. 3 of us could finish an entire duck! but wah after tat can really feel heartattack coming.

Anyway highly recommended. Would sure like to have this again next time
