Ming Kee Cha Siew, Jalan Alor

It has been a long time for me to find my once beloved Char Siew rice during my salaryman's day. The stall is called Ming Kee Char Siew. I used to dine at their old location which is at Jalan Tengkat Tong Shin but after they were closed, there are no notice of where they have moved to. After making a research online, I found out the just moved to another road which is at Jalan Alor. So without further ado, I grabbed my old buddy Ann Jee to accompany me to this stall.
Same old people who are working for this stall. Hopefully the taste would be the same too!
Nice fragrance rice but it cost RM2.00/plate. A little too expensive don't you think?
This is the famous Char Siew. What is so delicious about this Char Siew is the meat is with a little fat in it to create a slight chewy experience but the best part is when you take the first bite, the crispy Char Siew skin is crunchy and every each bite will squeeze a little honey juice into your mouth. Perfect! However, the portion is so small for 2 pax!
Delicious bean sprout but too expensive for RM10.00/plate.
New place, same taste but getting very expensive. Old customers like me will notice. The price is the same but the portion is getting really smaller. How can Char Siew rice can cost us RM26.00 in total? It is just too expensive and not worth it at all! I am so sad that my once loved Char Siew rice becomes like this. I prefer a stall who is serving food to please their customers instead of earning every single bit from a customer. That's the heart of a hawker stall.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Outlook: 5/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

Outlook: 3/5 Creativity: 5/5 Taste: 4/5 Price: 3/5 Overall: 3/5 - If you think that coconut soup should be a milky soup, then you are wrong. This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.
