Rakuzen @Empire Shopping Gallery

Image
I may have introduced a "shocking" Kampachi, Japanese Cuisine for you all. So this time I will lower a bit the level of the Japanese Cuisine but the quality is still that good. The Japanese Restaurant is called Rakuzen. This restaurant is the sister company with Hokkaido IchibaKura Japanese RestaurantZenSushi Zanmai and Pasta Zanmai which means they are from the same boss. The difference is Rakuzen consider a high end Japanese Restaurant among all of them and follow by KuraHokkaido IchibaZen and Sushi Zanmai while Pasta Zanmai is under different category. As you can see Super Dining Sdn Bhd has monopolizes the Japanese Restaurant market in Malaysia. That does not mean any good if the quality is not well maintained.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 4/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - The soup is real nice. There are a lot of different types of "shrooms" and a few seafood in it. Not one of the best nabe i had but it is still worth to try.

Wild Basil, Solaris Dutamas

Image
I am not very familiar with Damansara and Hartamas area. The worst is Hartamas. By getting there I already spent 30 minutes more than usual time and using 2 unnecessary tolls. When I reached Solaris Dutamas, the parking are plenty which is just RM1.00 per entry but to get to the restaurant is extremely difficult. The place is newly built and they are some part still under construction. So there is no directory available and instruction board are not clear. We took another 15 minutes to locate this restaurant. The offer is from Everyday and the link for the coupon as below: Experience Classical Modern Western Cuisine (5 course set meal) at only RM19.90
This is very simple. Salad + Soup + Main course + Dessert + Drink = RM19.90
The 5 Course Set Meal includes: 1. Salad of your choice: Chef’s Salad/Club’s Salad
2. Soup of your choice: Mushroom Soup/Asparagus Soup

Swan Lake Korean Restaurant, Sri Petaling

This will be my third time introduction on Korean food after Kyung Joo Korean Restaurant and Sweetree. Actually I am not a big fan of Korean Cuisine but just too many attractive offers brought me there. This time is by I Love Discounts

Overall: 2/5 - All I can eat is the pork and onion. Not much ingredients inside but the pork is tasty.

Taste: 1/5
Price: N/A
Overall: 2/5 - This stone pot has a bit more ingredients in it but it does not taste so good at all. The combination is not right


I feel this restaurant brings me a weird feeling. I do not feel warm and excited like I used to be when I enter a restaurant. Wi-fi is not available here but you have ample of parking space since this is a newly built area. Once all the shop is opened, I do believe we have parking problem once again. For this offer by I Love Discounts, it is not worth it. I think I have to stop getting Korean food voucher again.

T'forty Two @Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

My sister and I would always like to imagine ourselves having a high tea like in the movie called My Fair Lady. To have that experience in Malaysia would be very hard to happen but it is happening when we were at Empire Shopping Gallery and we saw this boutique cafe.

Fu Kua Restaurant @SS23, Petaling Jaya

Image
I know in this post I may have present a food that all of you may dislike. The reason I am sharing this because I find this restaurant extremely unique. A Fu Kua Restaurant - means Bitter Gourd Restaurant. 
In a food we may prefer sweet, sour, salty and spicy. Bitter taste is always the last we wish to taste. But do you know how much nutrition does a single bitter gourd has? Bitter gourd contains vitamin A, B1, B2, and C. It also contains minerals like calcium, phosphorous, iron, copper and potassium. It helps purify blood tissue, enhances digestion, and stimulates the liver.

Overall: 3/5 - When you come to such a restaurant, you just have to order a bitter gourd juice. You won't regret for experience one. If you do not like the bitter taste that much, you may try the Bitter Gourd with Honey @RM2.50.
