Fritz Brasserie @ Wolo Hotel, Bukit Bintang

 

With a chic interior and the top- notch service, Fritz Brasserie sits elegantly at the ground lobby of Wolo Hotel in Bukit Bintang. Polished in every way possible, the Fritz Brasserie ‘s remarkable interior absolutely got me enamoured of owner Christian Bauer and Eddie Chew’s sense of style and concept. The same name behind the renowned and iconic names such as Mr. Chew’s Chino Latino and Troika – sky Dining, it’s gusty modern Euro- inspired offering pleases, and excites in an equal measure, right from the small plates to crackling artisan bread with luscious quality butter, and fries discovered better by mistakes to meticulous curating of desserts. Whether you’re a food novice or seasoned gourmand, there’s going to be something you’ll enjoy here at the Brasserie Fritz.

Steak (RM 95) here is showcasing the tender meat at its best: the cut blushing pink with juiciness at the prick of a fork. Fish and Chips (RM 75) is all about the crispy batter of Indian inspired flavours. The aromatic batter layering the plump juicy fillet carries Indian spices that could either be a work of a genius, or the opposite- depending on how much you can accept fish fillet with a hint of spice masking that sweet, juicy cod. It is inevitably impressive how well this tender-firm textured large flakes with high moisture is so well encased in that light airy batter casing. Serving generously with that signature fries, and those addictive dollop of raita, along some nicely cooked peas, this one is a memorable one. Mussels (RM 38) was radically different from anything we’ve ever tasted. This fresh black mussels in tarragon broth served with potatoes and choucroute is so tasty the flavour lingered in the mouth long enough for a smile. This if nothing else was worth another visit. Only, I’d wished for it to serve with some baguette perhaps.

Small plates are nearly stellar. Each dish, such as Soured Cucumber (RM 18)- Japanese cucumber and liquorice scented hummus with dill and Marinated Mushrooms (RM 38)-Mushrooms with lemon feta cheese, crushed peas and my favourite mint, is beautiful and thoughtfully rendered, packed with bold flavours. Also, on the table is another all-time favourite of mine- Roasted Cauliflower (RM 18). Herring Escabeche (RM 38) served with crème fraiche, onion, gherkin, celery, chives and chervil maybe pricey given the portion size, but it isn’t measurable with portion to begin with. Special mention should also go to the incredible bread and butter.

Desserts stayed loyal to the classics like Ice cream scoops (RM 16) and Crème caramel (RM 25). Ice creams are homemade from fresh milk, cream, and eggs and served with chantility cream and topping. Fritz Crème Caramel stacks cake and creamy caramel with marinated fresh berries- a combination to balance the luscious creamy and tangy sweet berry.

Brasserie Fritz has gained a fast reputation for great service and even better food and ambiance, with some saying that the chips served here might very well be one of the best in town. I wouldn’t agree one hundred percent but it seemed to magically have me wanting to have every occasion celebrated at this establishment.

 

 

The restaurant menu is slowly being fine-tuned so prices might vary from when I visited.

Authentic porky meal at Yeah Cuisine, Jalan Awan (Ampang)

Yeah Cuisine at Jalan Awan Ampang

Yeah cuisine shouts authentic and delicious flavour at Jalan Awan, Ampang. They’ll tell you to go for the pork patty. They’ll tell you it’s a juicy bite of delicious umami minced with fresh herbs and sweet meat. And they’d be right. It is. Meals are available up until 3pm. And it’s well worth doing. Minced pork patty- isn’t too fat or too coarsely minced, but it wasn’t paste like either, the right fat-to-meat ratio. Pork patties serving on top of warm rice, this is the kind of bowl you will look forward to. I would of course like it with more vegetable but the salted fish in the patty was so amazing I didn’t mind the lack of vegetable.
With a variant of patties available to top that steaming fluff of white rice, choose from Coriander Pork Patty, Salted fish Pork Patty or even Dried Squid Patty, which by the way is very umami packed. The best thing is, noodle is available. Pork patty will rest on a bed of braised pork so if the patty isn’t quite what you are feeling, go for the Braised Pork Rice. Cubes of fat and meat layer from the pork belly with our staple grains and a whole braised egg is so good. Did I mention the bowls each comes with a sinful spoonful of fried lard? I swear to you it was some mixed emotions but if your stomach (or artery veins in this case) have only quota or space for one thing, then go for the pork patty.

such generous spoonful of pork lard (CYC)- dayuuummm..

Should you have more space in the stomach, or more people to share your meal, then get a Chinese burger. The white cottony soft and fluffy mantao bun was so good with the dried squid pork patty. With the right thickness for the right amount of chew and plenty of umami from the dried squids, and the patty slightly bigger than the bao, every bite is enjoyably assured to have meat in it. Cleverly sandwich with some pickled vegetable, this can actually be a meal on its own. Other snacking option isn’t as interesting but it was really good to offer for variety. Especially for neighbouring patrons, Yeah cuisine can have you screaming for meal time every now and then when thinking of comfort food of honest serving. The restaurant is not stingy with their ingredients.7.yeah cuisinec

Noodle is a great breakfast option but oh that rice roll…. And that curry… Malaysians will swear on that authentic curry is an entitlement and this Hakka heritage delivers an inimitable complex flavour that’s closer to the roots of Hakka palate. I personally feel that Hakka dishes are a little heavier when it comes to flavour but it is what makes them unique in defining their culinary history.

Xiao Long Kan Hot Pot @ Sunway Velocity

 

Hot pot has been around for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been loving all sort of hot pots for the longest time. The recent trend that is rapidly growing in the last couple of months is none other than the Chinese hot pot. The concept of hot pot is pretty simple- simmering meat cuts, assorted vegetables, and maybe some noodles in various choices of broths, of which is probably most of the time the draw factor to the hot pot experience. Chinese hot pots have come to more than merely just culinary and cultural experience. It is now a form of relaxing enjoyment involving more than just actively digging into what’s cooking in the pot. The most popular hot pot trend right now is one that comes with more than just a room filled with steams and noises. It is one that comes with exceptional attentive and warm service, and sometimes even some fancy albeit unnecessary presentations and performances.

Currently boiling hot is the “ma la” otherwise known as the “numb and spicy” hot pot experience with hefty dosage of Sichuan flower pepper added to the broth richly added with thick chili oil. This is one of the most famous variations of the Chong Qing hot pot, and it is indeed having its moment now. Chong Qing is the city believed to be the birth place of hot pot in China, but the unique spicy and pungent flavor that reflects the history of the place has since travelled all across the globe so we can now experience the similar, if not the exact same culinary experience.

Sunway Velocity where hot pot spots are aplenty, this one caught my attention with the fancy display and their barbie doll meat presentation. Not that I am into it- I actually thought it wasn’t very appealing, but I thought it will be an attractive gimmick most people would appreciate. Alas, I didn’t manage to order that particular dish mostly due to my lack of proficiency in Mandarin. Here at the Xiao Long Kan Hot Pot, everything is mostly in Mandarin including the signage, putting that as the foremost upfront hindrance to locate the outlet.

Sauces are basic with freshly chopped chili, garlic, coriander and spring onion. As soon as the pot of broth is brought to the built in stove table, the meats and vegetables follows tightly after. All plates come with suggested cooking time as printed on the menu, so be ready for a mouth-numbing spicy hot pot experience soon after. We celebrate the creative soup and hot pot temperature with freshness mainly from land because the sea harvest wasn’t as intriguing. All meat balls, pork blood, pork intestine , tofu, mushroom, and the signature marinated pork rib were amazing except the pork belly slices which could have gotten more applauses if served slightly thicker.

Absolute Thai Street Food @ MIdvalley Megamall

 

Currently in Thailand when drafting this particular post just makes it worst to have to describe my experience with Absolute Thai street food in Midvalley megamall. If I must put it bluntly, then the simplest and most accurate description is probably localised. All our order, including the drink, of which one of it is sold as the Thai coconut (RM 7), totally fail to live up to their reputation. Absolute Thai has been serving street food with comfortable indoor seating, mostly inside malls, but the eatery still qualifies as street food given the array of most popular and renown Thai street dishes. One of which is the Thai Chicken Porridge (RM 11.90) and the Beef Noodle (RM 15.90). Which turns out would be a delight to most Malaysians. Seasoning and taste profile are closely tied to the local palate so for those eager to satisfy the Thai street food cravings, I’d recommend skipping this one.

 

1. absolute thai street  (2)
2. absolute thai street  (3)

 

Lemon Grass (RM 4.90) drink weirdly has a wedge of lime and this one totally reminded me of our local limau ais. Safest order is probably the omelette but take note it isn’t a sharing portion.

 

3. absolute thai street  (4)

 

In Thailand, even if you don’t know where to look, there’s still a high chance to stumble upon treasure. While Bangkok’s street food already claiming their throne to be legendary, with critics and bloggers from all over the world dropping reviews and praises, there is indeed something magical about their cuisine that seemed familiar to most of us in Malaysia but yet still never fails to create a little bit of surprises each time. I am hoping that there will be more Thai restaurants in Klang Valley that could give us the same surprises.

Pork Rendang Nasi Kerabu at ANTE @ Solaris Dutamas

 

Celebrating patriotism with Pork Rendang Nasi Kerabu .Love it or hate it, this vibrant blue rice leaves a memorable impression upon the first sight. It is not unusual to see one but it is rare, and when spotted one, will be difficult to take your eyes off it. Served with ulam, the mix of flavour profile from the assorted raw vegetables that is being cut and chopped into tiny pieces puts together so much excitement on a single plate. Here at ANTE, kerabu meal is prep with some oink factor and the main protein source in this fiber and vitamin loaded portion meal is of course non other than their signature – pork. They celebrate patriotism this year with kerabu with pork rendang and I must say they are indeed some porky doyen when it comes to handling and serving them fresh in your dishes.

That is further confirmed when they rolled out other pork dishes and there’s absolutely a couple of it that was impressive. Pork come in all forms of cooking method—roasted, grilled, or even some frying until sizzling, with some being quintessential pork lover’s fav and some fusion twist that’ll guarantee salivating. And together with some booze, would be another perfect evening. Chermoula Spiced Pork Shoulder Steak was grilled so perfectly for amazing tenderness I will order this again anytime with add ons of more vegetables, not because I simply want my vege but because I also love their zucchini sides. Iberico Baby Ribs and House Smoked Bacon were charming. Meat is incredibly tender rand juicy, every bite tastes like luxury.

Eatomo Publika

 

Poke bowl. Pronounced as ‘po- kay’, is a Hawaiian dish commonly mistaken as Japanese origin because of the fresh raw cuts of fishes. The confusion probably happened because of the similar dishes by the Japanese – most likely zuke Don or donburi, and that most of us were more familiar with Japanese food as the cuisine gained its popularity over the years. While it may seem like a new trend, this simple and addictive Hawaiian dish has been around for centuries. And because local Japanese in Hawaii is a big ethnic group in Hawaii, it is no surprise of the influence in their food.

 

Up until 2015, we haven’t caught wind of this Hawaiian dish but when pokebowl becomes widely accepted (thanks to social media), people started being creative and infusing local elements to redefine the dish. Take note the real Hawaiian poke though, isn’t really instagrammable. So, this one is close.

 

2.Eatomo Publika

 

Meet the Pokelantan Bowl. Here at the Eatomo Solaris Dutamas, this one is made with the usual raw cuts of fish before finishing with a toss of lime and chili padi drizzle marinate, this truly is a marriage of Asian pacific. Resembling local dishes, the combination in this bowl is bursting full when it comes to the authentic Asian flavour.

 

1.Eatomo Publika

 

Another amazing protein source for those not too keen with raw fishes, Mentaiko Tamago rice is a good satisfaction although I find the portion a little small to fit the huge appetite I had during my visit. Personally, I like my mentaiko just as they are, but most are probably more accustomed to slightly more diluted flavour profile so having this with them thick slices of egg omelette and fragrant rice is topgallant.

 

7.eatomo publika

 

That wasn’t the only crowd pleaser, fresh oysters and mussels come with the breeze of ocean and sea. The plump and juicy oyster of a perfect one mouth bite size was my ultimate favourite, followed closely by the pot of mussel with that fancy sweet flavourful broth of nothing but pleasant.

Meaty bowls are inevitable, but for anyone dying to have raw leaves then you might have to pick any of their salad bowl, which I really don’t recommend unless if the determination to improve wellbeing of your gut is the main concern. Salads are like many other Japanese eatery, boring and unattractive.

 

8. Eatomo Publika

 

Seemingly trivial, but food is a way of life in the country and the ethnic diversity has resulted in such extraordinary food landscape. Who would have think that poke, a product of the indigenous native Hawaiian culture would fit perfect with the touch of Kelantan? This outlet gave me a better experience than the their first in Taman Danau Desa outlet for sure and at this blog entry point, there is a third outlet at Bangsar !!

Soon Soon Pan Mee & Fish Head Noodle @ Mutiara Damansara

 

With those mismatched tables and plastic chairs for seats, this newly expanded coffee shop space is loud, crowded and unrefined- just the way many of us would enjoy a comfort meal before casual trendy gossips and news- both fake or real. This isn’t a newbie in town but the recent expansion means a lot to some of their hardcore fan. Many are drawn into Soon Soon Pan Mee and fish head noodle by the reputation, and there is not a time of day when a crowd can’t be spotted outside, lining up or waiting for a table. Most come with family and larger group. Now with a bigger space means more seats and tables hence it is now shorter time in the line, so scene as such is possibly no longer visible.

 

 

It is almost not necessary to look at the menu when you are here, you’ll find everyone else sorta eating the same couple of dishes, and you should too: they are famous for making the best fish head noodle within this area. You’ll spot a bowl of glistening noodle dish on almost every table. Unlike typical fish head noodle, the broth here is slightly starchy and has what’s close to broth-like consistency. Each spoonful delivers soup made from rich stock that’s umami with a hind of sweet tang from the tomatoes and the pickled mustard green. Soup is thick also because of yam chucks that contributes a little starch to the texture of the soup. While it is not merely about the soup, each pieces of fillet were thick, cuboidal and fried correctly for sufficient crisp on the outside and moist juicy on the inside. The deep fried also helps lock the flavor of fish from within so it compliments the noodles in the soup.

Skip the pan mee and char chan teng breakfast all together cause why waste your quota on those when you can have the delicious fish head noodle? Of course, unless if you are not a fan of fish head noodle of which if so then you shouldn’t even bother visiting this shop then. They do however bring some nostalgic memories to the root of local coffee shop menu. Eggs are always fresh, I would order the half-boiled eggs every single time and they never fail me.
