Di Wei Chinese Cusine @ Empire Hotel Subang

 

Di Wei at Empire Hotel Subang really should have gotten more limelight amongst chinese cusine lover. Led by Chef Thian, the restaurant is taking pride in their new menu with plenty of sous vide dishes. Commonly a technique used aplenty in Western cooking, this technique is rare in preparation of chinese cuisine. Missing a couple of dishes at the meal, this would probably be one of the short and breezy posts. Arrived in time to savour their soup and a couple of their signature dishes, I should apologies for not being able to shoot everything that’s served. However, the complete serving for the night is already on Aunty Lilly’s post so I would recommend looking through it HERE .

 

Poached Vegetables in Soya Milk Broth (RM 24.80 regular, RM 49.60 large) was fabulous and certainly a delight. It was light and refreshing, with a slight green luxury in a luscious soya fragrant instead of the typical meat umami flavoured soups. And speaking of soya, their tofu dish was equally good and impressively showcasing the skills of their Chef. And their pretty dessert-is totally mesmerizing. Serving Purple Sweet Potato with Pumpkin Cream (RM 10) in a beautiful serving size, this one is a natural sweet finishing that is not relenting at all.

Chicken Up @ Subang Jaya, SS 15

 

Fried chicken happened to not only be a cult fave in Korea but also one of my all time favourite. When Singapore’s leading chicken house (Chicken Up) made their debut in SS15 Subang Jaya, I never hesitated to visit them. Interior was very hipster and comfortable with vibrant colours and very friendly staffs.

Plus, they have this signature that is very close to stealing all the limelight from every other dish on their menu. That we are referring to the UFO Topokki, better known as the Snow Squid Topokki (RM 68). A quick glimpse of it and many would naturally relate this to Omaya, or any of those cheese ring bbq but this one here is better when it comes to variety. You get a hot plate with neat slots to separate all that is to go with their main – a crispy battered giant squid on a bed of Topokki and vegetable.

 

4.Chicken Up @ SS15 (Malaysia)

 

Best to share with 3pax at least, this hot UFO pan is served on portable stove for perpetual heat so the cheese sauce, egg, fried kimchi rice, and kimchi would cook continuously as you dig in. Be prepared to wash this super flavoursome dish off with lots of liquid and I’d say it would be alright pairing with beer instead of their Watermelon soju (RM 48) which happens to be on their top seller as well. The naturally refreshing watermelon fruit gives the tropical quench as the stove burns with heat before us. The soju is just doing what spirits does, making everything awesome.

6.Chicken Up @ SS15 (Malaysia)

 

The chicken wing here is served whole making it looking fabulously generous upon meeting it. Covered in a thin, close to crunchy if not crispy and salty soy sauce batter, the burst of flavour happens the very instant it touches the tongue. If there is any good to this would be the juicy meat retained within the thin batter coat. Never compare this to any of those stand alone Korean Fried Chicken house.

 

7.Chicken Up @ SS15 (Malaysia)

 

There menu is massive but made easy to pick with the featured top 12 item. These are all on their top seller list and I can see why the Bulgogi Fries (RM 26) made it to the list. Juicy beef with a light crunch from the onion complemented the texture and taste of the otherwise ordinary serving of Fries. These are packed with flavours; it was a clear winner for the day.

 

8.Chicken Up @ SS15 (Malaysia)

 

Next is the crispy golden onion, which weird enough made it to the top seller list but I am pretty sure this Yangpa Bomb (RM 18) here would have earned their spot on the top seller list with the huge portion serving and the rich batter mix coating on every single of the onion petals. Something their fan would definitely appreciate.

 

9.Chicken Up @ SS15 (Malaysia)

 

The owner is real generous to offer their best selling dessert- Melon Bingsu (RM 38), served inside a half honey melon with delicious shaved ice filling all the space within all the empty space of the half sphere. And topped with a large scoop of ice cream to go with honey drizzled melon balls, the combination is a sweetheart for dessert lover. I thought they could have omitted the honey and the melon itself would be just fine.

And here is the top 12 to help you decide. No need to thank me 

This dinner session is compiled on video for those who want to see the actual experience and I must also take this opportunity to thank the owner for treating us with such warm hospitality. Dinner was on the house so while it may not be my thing, I’m feeling very thankful and extra blessed to have the opportunity to enjoy the best of Singapore’s Korean Fried Chicken here in Subang Jaya.

Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House @ SS14 Subang Jaya

 

Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House is one of the latest additions to the blooming Chinese restaurants in SS14 neighbourhood shoplot. The yong tau fu serving here is indeed pretty authentic if not the best of Hakka yong tau fu in town.

 

1.Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House @ SS14 Subang Jaya

 

Unlike the usual fish paste-stuffed yong tau foo, hakka yong tau foo mainly consist vegetables and tofu that is stuffed with ground pork and fish paste and that is exactly what you get at the Yee Kee yong tau fu House. Patrons begin with picking a selection of raw vegetables of their choice and it is then being stuffed with their meat paste and cooked accordingly; either boiling or deep frying.

8.Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House @ SS14 Subang Jaya

9.Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu House @ SS14 Subang Jaya

 

The result of it- expect crispy tofu skin, Taiwan sausages and fish cake deep fried; shitake mushrooms, brinjals, and fried fritters (you tiao) are stuffed with delicious meat paste before frying at high temperature to keep the juicy and bouncy filling within the textured vege or fungi. And a generous bowl of sweet leaf soup that somewhat resembles pan mee soup with extra flavours and umami from the stuffed vegetables and tofu.

White rice is available but rice roll (Chee cheong fun) seemed to be a popular choice amongst the regulars – judging from how they are on every table as I looked around. Simple serving of this is to be accompanied by sweet sauce and perhaps a little of their chili sauce that may have contributed to the entire dining experience. It resembles the chicken rice chili that we are all familiar with but less pungent and gingery. Instead there is more vinegar in this one for that pleasant tang to balance the sweet sauce, making this quite a star element to bring out the flavour of all the yong tau fu pieces.

Having easily access to yong tau foo at almost every corner of state, it is only natural that this delicate Chinese food becoming a part of us and thus, making this a comfort food. It becomes a flavour and taste that significantly represents the Chinese culture in one way or another. Here at Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu house, menu is vey focus with mostly only yong tau foo. Beverages are very simple but popular- judging from how they sold the last glass of kedondong juice at 6pm.

Restaurant Menara Biryani @ USJ

 

Restaurant Menara at USJ serves up excellent Pakistan and Indian dishes despite its rather irrelevant name and this surprisingly clean and tidy restaurant serves to cater the neighboring patrons with meals as well as catering services for occasions. They could use a better lighting to lighten the restaurant but food is mainly the highlight here. This entertainingly named restaurant offers some very authentic dishes with original spices from India and Pakistan and if I must bring your attention to the wow factor, it’ll have to be the outstanding starter crackers and dip. We had several servings of these while waiting for our mains to arrive.

 

Restaurant Menara @ USJ

 

The enormous plates of their famous biryani are probably the best within this area, with high quality basmati rice cooked with rich spices. The comprehensive aroma is the first thing that would have your saliva gland working. The lamb biryani was simply delicious with lamb cooked to perfect tender and rice beautifully cooked to perfection and to my liking when it wasn’t as oily and wet as what’s served at the Big Singh .

The usual ethnic fares are available and if you’ve been a fan of all this robust herbs and spices in Pakistan cuisine, I recommend group dining.

Big Singh Chapati @SS 15

 

Delicious smells waft from this Punjabi restaurant serving the usual ethnic fare, where all their breads are made to order. There is no scenic view or alfresco dining but the décor in Big Singh Chapatti is delightful and comfortable. Their attraction, their bread of course are complemented by a symphony of flavours and cooking styles of dishes from homely dhal to grilled meats and biryani rice worthy of the waiting time. Cheese Prontha (RM 6.90), Onion Prontha (RM 5), Cheese Naan (RM 10), Parotha (RM 3), Chapati (RM 2) are not very much too highly priced but it was consistent and fantastically keen.

3.Big Singh Chapatti @ SS 15

 

The kitchen also excels in biryani. Biryani Mutton Dum (RM 18.90), Biryani Chicken Dum (RM 15.90), and Biryani Chicken (RM 17.90) have prices pegged at the sharp end, but these delicious rice with your protein in it are at a good portion perfect for sharing. At communal dining, there is the option of smaller Briyani rice (RM 4).

 

4.Big Singh Chapatti @ SS 15
5.Big Singh Chapatti @ SS 15

 

The add on for hungry patrons, there is a splendid spread of dishes based on clever use of classic herbs and spices. Sink your teeth into some tasty slow cooked chunks of chicken and mutton with lovely mix of masala, spiced with sweet spices and pounded herbs were all outstanding. I love their Mutton Keema (RM 15.90), and Butter Chicken (RM 19.90). Also, spice levels are at authentic levels for the Lahori Chicken (RM 11.90) and Bhindi Masala (RM 11.90) but the creamy gravy were luscious and lovely to go with those bread or rice. Naans are best to go with Palak Paneer (RM 15.90), and despite the hindsight guilt feeling, I’d still say it’s worthy of the calories. Just make sure you balance this out accordingly (I’ve added 15 minutes to my daily yoga session for the next few days).

 

6.Big Singh Chapatti @ SS 15

8.Big Singh Chapati @ SS 15

 

Speaking of masala and I can tell you it doesn’t just stopped at the dishes. We had the Masala tea hot (RM 3.50), Masala tea cold (RM 4) and Teh Tarik (RM 2) for that perfect ending for this satisfying meal. For some reason, this combo really worked out for that satisfaction guaranteed after meal sensations. Otherwise, there are those healthier options- Mango Lassi (RM 7.50), Mint Lassi (RM 6.50), Plain Lassi (RM 5.50), Watermelon Juice (RM 6.90), Lime Juice (RM 4.90), or the Teh O Ais (RM 2.30). Game lovers are well looked after with their super huge menu for beverages.

 

 

8.Big Singh Chapatti @ SS 15

 

The rich, warmly spiced masala dishes and grains of delicious biryani rice is worth getting messy for; and those soft and chewy warm buttery chapatti makes the perfect foil. Forget about the cutleries, some things are worth remaining finger licking.

WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

Whup Whup Cafe in Subang industrial area has already created hype amongst the younger crowd within this heavily dense and student packed area. Tucked within a dead end with a small and un-showy restaurant facade, who would have guessed the show begins the minute you enter.

 

1.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

2.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

Revamped from an existing factory outlet, Whup Whup also made a name for itself with a compact but perfectly formed menu, as well as an easy going conviviality. Dishes are very creative and contemporary; with tables arranged loosely to create ample space for comfy dining- loosely placed, but during peak time it can get a little noisy. Even so, take your time to enjoy the ambiance; the space is very calming and impressive. Very instagramable too.

 

 

Want those Rosy Cheeks (RM 10)? Go for their starter soup. Rosy Cheeks is their soup of tomato with onion and served with a slice of bread. There is a perfect balance of sweetness to balance the acidity.

 

4.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

Chicken Mojo with rosemary raters and pan fried oranges (RM 22) can be lovelier if not for the sautéed potato cubes. Marrying potato and chicken for this dish probably appeal for its good value for money but I’d rather have them in clean and healthier form, probably with something green or leafy rather than anything starchy, but otherwise it’s hard to fault the dish.

 

5.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

6.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

And the next best substitution of protein supply for those fitness enthusiasts apart from chicken is fish of course. A nice cut of salmon fillet usually excites me and my favourite when it comes to this fish is usually raw or sous-vide. But WhupWhup’s Mohawk Salmon (RM 28) is good. So much character in this dish with those pineapple salsa atop a bed of mash, it’s no wonder it is rocking Mohawk.

 

7.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

It is never easy to pull off a big breakfast that is super outstanding or fabulously extraordinary. After all, big breakfasts are typically composed of all your classic western breakfast favourites and it is almost the most basic breakfast item in any cafe who serves breakfast. There could be hit and misses most of the time but Whup Whup jazz up their big breakfast; namely the Whup Daddy (RM 25) and is served with egg of your choice, eying mushrooms, some pan seared tomatoes, and toasted country bread.

 

8.WhupWhup Cafe @ Subang

 

One would eventually notice those hippie and playful dish name, and take note their beverages were equally as fancy and cheeky. But like many other cafes, they classically serve espresso based caffeine as well as some juices and soft drinks.
