湘村馆, Qingyuan

Interestingly dining at China...that's what I want to bring to you about in this post. The location is at Qingyuan which is a northern part of Guangzhou. The restaurant name is called 湘村馆. The interesting part is the food they served and how to eat.

Overall: 4/5 - Honestly, the main reason for me to sit in this restaurant is because of this. I wanted to try how not so ordinary chicken rice can it be. Well, from the outlook, they looks different. As for the taste, it indeed taste better than any other chicken rice stall. But the question is this chicken rice cost RM29.00++ if you order ala-carte. Does it worth that much to compare with a RM5.00 ordinary chicken rice? So the only "not so ordinary" is just the price.

Overall: 4/5 - Soft, not too sweet and something to crunch on...one slice is really not enough.

Overall, I think this restaurant has a good ambiance to sit, drink and have a slice of cake. Apart of that, it is a bit overpriced.

Overall: 3/5 - First signature dish...Avocado wrapped with white fish and turns to be like a mini mash potatoes for me. Taste really delicious but one is just enough.

Overall: 3/5 - This is delicious! I like the combination of the baked cheese together with the fresh seafood and sweet papaya! They mixed together very well. It might tends to be a little oily and salty so just remember to scoop in papaya in your every scoop to neutralize it.

Esquire Kitchen, Sungei Wang Plaza

Lately, I feel weird to step into Sungei Wang Plaza for the first time in several year. I never like this place and this place always known with lack of good food choices. However, I have been forced by a friend to had a quick lunch with her at Equire Kitchen where she works nearby. I never like this restaurant because in my opinion they never had a lot of customers even in a crowded mall like Sungei Wang Plaza.
My prediction was spot on and here it goes. Note: Nothing are good here so you will only be reading my critics only.
Overall, avoid this restaurant at all cost. I wonder how do they survive still for so long with so few customers.

Overall: 2/5 - This is her little son's favourite fish roe so we specially ordered for him. Pretty common fish roe sushi for me until I got the receipt and really surprised me. I think in Sushi Zanmai is just cost RM5.00++ for this sushi but over here they charged me for RM30.00++!!! Ridiculous!

Overall: 3/5 - The soft shell crab is still hot and the seaweed wrapper is crunchy. Perfect for me and especially the price is much more cheaper than the fish roe sushi.

Overall I think this is not a bad Japanese restaurant. Have not tried their sashimi yet so not rea…

Overall: 3/5 - A tomato based soup is never my liking but starting from today I have changed my perspective on this. Thanks to Porto Romano. I thought it would be sourish to cover so many fishy seafood in it. To my surprise, not sourish and not fishy. Just pure delicious soup with fresh seafood. I finished every single drop of it.

Overall: 4/5 - Once again, I am not a fan of Aglio Olio because of some places especially Delicious, they will put too much olive oil which is making whole plate very oily. However, thanks to Porto Romano again, I started to like their Aglio Olio which is just nice and especially added some dried chili over it. Perfect!
