[Food] Grand Shanghai Food Theme Park @ Setia Walk

Beautifully decorated, the Grand Shanghai was a really awesome place to visit. It was a joy walking around in this beautiful replica of old Shanghai streets. A very photo friendly place. They even have costumes for rent so you can take pics. Cool.

We eventually settled for this shop below. Even the waiters were dressed in costumes!

Food thankfully was also good. Simple, delicious and healthy Chinese food. Noodles were served in a lotus root and peanut soup. The watercress soup was nice and flavorful.

Simply soup noodle with brinjal in minced meat.

Watercress soup. Good and flavorful

As we continued wandering around this wonderful world of Shanghai we had some interesting snacks. Taste-wise though they were not great.

Giant squid! Just novelty. Taste bla.
 Kindori ice cream stall had a queue and so we gave it a try. Decent but nothing to shout about. Maybe it was the nice way the ice creams were presented? They has ice-cream biscuits, lollys, cakes. We only had the biscuit.

Level 4 of the "Mall building" part of Setia Walk, Puchong.

[Food] Miam Miam @ 1Utama

An interesting restaurant with very interesting menu. The aglio olio with miso ( forget the name ) was amazing.
Spaghetti coated with a flavorful sauce with a distinct Japanese taste.

Aglio olio with miso! Forget the name

Some kinda egg souffle! Also forgot the name but it's definitely my first time seeing this. A wobbly eggy foam sits atop creamy rice. Didn't taste great to me, and is very cloying.

Egg souffle! Forget the name also

This Japanese curry rice was also nice, it was very rich and well covered with the sweet Jap curry sauce.

Dessert seems to be their forte here. There are many interesting desserts to choose from. Green tea souffle had a very fragrant green tea aroma.
Green Tea Souffle!

Their famed French Toast. We had to wait quite some time for this. It was nice, the bread was soft inside and went well with the cream. I was kinda expecting ice cream here but it was cream instead. Not sure if this really deserved the fame and the wait. Don't get me wrong it is nice, just not as great as the hype.

[Food] Clan Dim Sum @ Sri Petaling

Dim sum! One of my favourite breakfasts. Clan Dim Sum is said to be one of the best around.
I found the Kai Woh Pau amazing, nice porridge and good siu mai.
Unfortunately the Har Kuen is just average.
The Har Kow is bad. Skin is too thick, prawns overcooked.
Ahhh I should really start looking for good Har Kow places, right now I can't think of any dim sum place serving amazing Har Kow. Maybe it's time to try looking at hotels?

Awesome hidden little Thai place. Lai Thai is a mini market with loads of Thai stuff. They serve authentic Thai street foods in a quiet little corner of Section 17 ( near MyElephant and Food Foundry but different block ). Limited seating space.
