UNFORTUNATELY THIS RESTAURANT HAD DISCONTINUED THEIR BUSINESS
The name of this cafe is quite unique as it means “the eldest uncle”. Though quite new in the arena of Hipsters Cafe in Ipoh, this little cafe is air-conditioned and well decorated.
I personally prefer a cafe to be air conditioned and cozy. I dont know why but I always see that a cafe is a good place to hang out with your friends and to have a long good chit chating. At the time when I came here, the cafe is ready to wrap up for that day and it is still new, so the menu is a little bit limited, so we just order what they have.
You’ll never believe where is this restaurant situated, it is located in suburbs of Ipoh known as Gugusan Manjoi – A malay traditional village within Kinta Valley.
I believe that Sg. Kati Western Food & Burger was established quite a long time ago, even before hipsters café came into existence and become a thing, but due to it’s location, people rarely know their existence except for Manjoi’s people.
Haha~ I purposely put my best friend picture on top of this post, just to promote him to the readers, he’s still single you know~hehe :lalala1:
Anyway, Hello and welcome again to all readers!! After quite a long time not posting to this blog, I finally have the time to write. As I had mentioned before in my post, I had an examination to go through and now I’m free plus, I will have a holidays for about 3 month!! Yeayy!! But most probably I will have to do a part time while waiting for a new semester to start, so before I start to get busy with the work, I shall publish some of interesting food spot I had go before.
Orait, this time I want to tell you one quite famous food spot in Selangor (I’m not sure whether they have branches in other state). The restaurant served Korean style barbeque foods but in a very unique way. This restaurant is very famous in Selangor, so I’m very sure that many of you had go to the restaurant. I just blog this for my reference in future~hehe *please don’t be mad at me for posting a boring food spot* huhu~
The front view of the restaurant at One Utama, Damansara branch.
Why it is so unique?
First, because it is a buffet All-You-Can-Eat restaurant. There are so many of choices here. At first, I don’t know where to start.
Second, it’s a Cook-It-Yourself BBQ restaurant. So they only serve raw food then you need to cooked it. I’ll show you the picture below.
To me this is quite unique because we rarely see this style of restaurant around.
My Verdict on this restaurant.
Food: Nice~ I love the variety of it.
Environment: Very Comfortable and I like the uniqueness on how we need to grill the food by our self. The style is copied from the Korean BBQ stall.
Price: To me, for a buffet with such amount of variety of foods, it is very reasonable.
The price for us 2 person, is MYR 87.70. Divide by 2, it’s MYR 43.85 per person. Remind you this is a dinner set, it is more expensive than lunch. And the price is plus the free flow drinks also.
For students, the price is different depends on what day you come. If you come on weekdays, the price is cheaper. From the price signboard, for lunch you may get MYR 22.88 and for dinner MYR 28.88. Just to remind you this price is not including tax and free flow drinks.
You need to add MYR 3.99 for free flow or refillable drinks.
The restaurant operating hours are also different from what days you come:
Sunday – Thursday: Lunch is from 11.30am till 3.59pm.
Dinner is from 4.00 pm till 10.00pm.
Friday – Saturday: Lunch is from 11.30am till 3.59pm.
Dinner is from 4.00 pm till 10.30pm.
1) Klang Valley: 1 Utama Shopping Centre (The one I go for this review), Plaza Pantai, IOI Mall.
2) Penang: Plaza Gurney, Auto City (Perai)
3) Malacca: Mahkota Parade.
4) Johor Bahru: City Square, KSL city.
* All are Halal certified except for Auto city branch where the certification is still in process.
Yup, before this I had review one stall in this place that also served Western dishes, you may refer that post here. But I think, that stall is not so special compared to what I will review this time. The main difference about this stall compared to the previous stall is that, this stall served the steak in sizzling way (by using hotplate). This bring the uniqueness in the food. But, later I will served you the picture~ :muahh1:
Anyway, I quite like this stall foods because of it’s uniqueness. The taste also not bad. But there are lack of seats here, sometimes on the weekends, it was hard to find a table. Maybe because there are 2 good steak stall here. Because this stall is near to Lanun or Pirate Steakhouse, another favourable steakhouse here in Damansara Uptown. But I may review about it later.
So here is my conclusion on this stall.
Food: Nice, Unique and Tasty~Me likey~I prefer grilled Chicken Chop rather that being deep fried.
Environment: Open food court, Comfortable, but sometimes when you come in weekend it was hard to find a sit. But they used “free seats” here, means you can seat anywhere and order on any stall.
Price: Very reasonable for a price of western dishes. Most of the price is below RM10.
So, that’s all, location map at the end of the post, click “Eat More” to view the “mouth watering” photo~ :hehehe1:
So, in the previous post, I had already show you on our first day of the trip to Surabaya. On our second day, we had some journey outside Surabaya main city, to the Apple farm at mount-what-i-not sure,=_=”. I’m so shocked that Indonesia had apple and orange farm you know.
Anyway, the journey of food is getting interesting. Our tourist guide said eating Bakso at the top of the mountain feels great. We tried it, and it really does. yup, when you eat hot food in cozy, windy weather, it feels good you know. But unfortunately I forget to get some picture. Because I was busy eating. Because I was busy taking the panorama image from the mountain. However there are many small stalls selling Bakso there or you may eat it inside the Apple farm, they have restaurant there.
Anyway, I should just proceed with our lunch and Dinner for second day. There was no breakfast because as I said in my first day post, our breakfast is provided by the hotel, so nothing specials there.
So, our lunch on second day was atRestoran Simpang Raya. The menu is, Nasi Padang. Just enjoy the food-toshot.=)
Or in Malay, Jalan-Jalan Cari Makan di Surabaya, Indonesia – Hari Pertama.
HOLLAAAA!!!!! Yes, my first overseas food journey by me although it was just in Indonesia, hehe~ Yeah, Indonesia was such a great country you know. I’m not very sure about other place like Jakarta or Bandung, but Surabaya is a good place to visit. Despite all the bad image I get before going about the condition in Indonesia, the trip did make the things clear for me. Yes they live in the hardship, poverty is everywhere here, but yet they live happily. How can they live happily like that? From what I see, there are Give and Take attitude and respecting each other among their peoples. =)
Well, that’s what I think about them, you’ll need to go there by yourself to experience it yourself. And most importantly for this blog, my trip to Surabaya or Soerabaia did give me an opportunity to eat some of Indonesian food. Well, in Indonesia, the most famous things in their dishes, is rice. So in my trip, we eat rice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. And most of the food here is Halal. This may be because of it status as Islamic Country.
Another thing I want to tell you before I made the review, is that all the restaurant that included here was set by our tours agency, therefore I don’t know whether there are other good restaurant here. But I think the food from all the restaurants we visited was good enough to try. Or maybe this review will gives you some thought on what dishes to eat here.
Ok, lets go for the review. So, our arrival at Surabaya in afternoon had made us to go straight for lunch. Our first destination?
Ayam Bakar Primarasa Restaurant, Surabaya Indonesia.
So, what waiting for us in this restaurant? Enjoy the picture below~
P/s: Massive amount of pictures below, hope you can wait patiently. =) Continue reading
