Random Food Post

I said I would take a break from Europe blogging over the weekends. But… I’m kind of stumped. I don’t know what else to write.

I guess this is also part of the Post Vacation Syndrome. Not only am I not used to going to work again, I am also not used to blogging about other stuff.

I actually got back to my cooking dinner routine last week. But because I haven’t been blogging about my home cooked food for quite some time, every time I forgot about taking pictures until the food are all safely tucked inside my tummy. πŸ™„

Shall I just show you some random outside food pics from last week? When I say outside, I mean Queensbay Mall. These are all food items from different restaurants inside Queensbay Mall.

ε’Έι±ΌθŠ±θ…©η…² Salted fish braised pork belly set meal @ 小台阁 Taiwan Courtyard (2nd Floor)

The side dishes platter reminds me of the fake tapas. Hardly surprising since I got that fake paella meal set from a Chinese restaurant. That thought still annoys me to no ends even today >.< …

I can’t remember if this was RM 18.90 or RM 19.90. Had this on Thursday. It’s on their set lunch menu.

Tonkatsu and Garlic Fried Rice set @ Yataimura (Lower Ground Floor)

It’s been ages since I last came to this Japanese restaurant. Their house specialty are the different levels of spicy ramen. There’s level 1 to 40 if I remember correctly. Normal humans could tolerate up to level 4.

But I was never a fan of paying to torture myself. So after a couple of attempts, I stayed clear of the ramens and only order their katsu rice sets. I was torn between this one and their Miso Katsu set. In the end, this one won because of the garlic fried rice. I think I paid RM 24.90 for this one, for a Friday lunch.

By the way, tonkatsu means deep fried pork chop. Ton 豚 = pork, katsu = deep fried.

Mixed Grill Platter (Mushroom sauce) @ Oldtown White Coffee

I know, I know, most of you do not like this franchise, and you probably dislike seeing me patronize them more often than you’d like. But… what do you expect me to do? They are the earliest to open in the mall and I was hungry. If there’s a Papparich outlet in Queensbay Mall, I’d go there instead.

No, not really. Papparich is getting way too expensive these days… πŸ™„

  1. Get over that fake paella already! Move on.. there are more in life than all these fakes.

    But then again, there are more fakes in life than just paella and tapas! Jeng jeng jeng!

    Fake boobs! BOMB! How you gonna live with that?!! πŸ˜›

  2. I really got hungry now, mate! This plate of mixed grill platter at Oldtown White Coffee looks really really yummy! I bet you enjoyed it :). Wish you were here in Amsterdam right now so you could try few Easter delicacies me and my mom made! πŸ™‚

    • There is? I know there’s a very “atas” Japanese restaurant on the 2nd or 3rd floor (near Parkson), not that one…

  3. wah, that old town is fei por’s one…I tink she has quite a number of business since Berjaya has covered a lot of F&B nowadays (tht includes Starbucks & Kenny Rogers!) That grill platter looks interesting. How come i didn’t notice it in the menu before? ok, it’s time to drop by Old Town again!

    • I don’t know if it is really her’s anot leh. I don’t even know what relation she has with Berjaya. But everyone around me seems to think so. πŸ™„

  4. Since normal humans can tolerate spice levels of 1 – 4, who are they planning to sell levels 5 – 40 to….aliens? πŸ˜€ Eh? I can’t find fei por being mentioned in this post?

    • I don’t know, probably some daredevils. There’s a lot of Malaysians who are on “abnormal” level of spicy tolerance. πŸ™„

      Hahaha, mentioned in my reply to Mun…

  5. There has been lots of changes on your blog since I last visited. Love the new look.

    I had a quick look at your travel log. You certainly had a blast there.

    It has been years since I visited Penang. I cannot remember the shopping malls but I didn’t visit any when I was there.

    What does Fei Poh mean?

    • Hmm, I wonder when was the last time you visited. If you mean the theme, I never changed it. But my writing style… yeah, people grow up and change, right? πŸ˜‰

      Fei Poh is a Cantonese pronunciation. It means Fat Woman. If you are Malaysian and reads even a little bit of news, you would know who I mean. πŸ™„

    • I guess maybe in Australia, that one is the closest to authentic Malaysian fare. No choice… πŸ™„

  6. I was wondering what you will post today. Now I know. Can’t wait for weekdays to read your travel posts.

    Was the tonkatsu tasty?

    The mixed grill platter surprisingly looks good. I see broccoli and baby carrots so very good got vegetables. For breakfast is good to kick start the day. How much was it? I don’t think I read the price in your post. I don’t go there anymore but I don’t mind anyone else going there. Of course anyone can eat there if they like. You got a scolding from someone you know for going there? For supporting a business they don’t support?

    • Er… not bad lah, but not especially tasty… πŸ™„

      Hahaha since you don’t go there, why do you care about their price? (Actually is because I did not take notice, I think together with drinks is about RM 20, I was having breakfast with others) πŸ˜› …

      Not scolding lah, but I always get those “Yierr!! Why you wanna support Fei Por business??” 😐

      • Wanna know price to compare with others. Thanks for giving the estimation. I don’t even know it is fei por’s.

        • Well, that’s what many people says. Apparently they are owned by Berjaya, who they say indirectly means owned by Fei Por… πŸ™„
