Curry Mee at Imbi Market

I'm rarely crazy over curry mee and only order this when people say it is famous in a particular cafe. So I ordered this today as when some customer told me he graded this as 5 Star! I should have ordered at the more popular curry mee stall but I ordered from the wrong stall. There were a lot of ingredients inside such as chicken, tau pop, and long beans. The soup is very thick too.

Fried Carrot Cake @ Imbi Market

I almost didn't order this because one of the customers told me that the curry wantan mee is 5 Star whereas the Fried Carrot Cake (commonly known as Char Koay Kak in Hokkien in Penang) is only 4 Star. But I guess deep inside I had a craving for Koay Kak. The koay kak is fried to be slightly black or burnt. There was a lot of chair poh fried together adding to the fragrance and flavours. I think I have finally found a spot for my favourite koay kak without going back to Penang.

Ah Fook Chee Cheong Fun @ Imbi Market

I rarely comment Chee Cheong Fun as tasty. But this one is one of a kind whereby the chee cheong fun sauce looks like Pasembur sauce.

I guess the sauce is the reason behind the super long queue, which I joined. I rarely like to queue, but thinking it is Yong Tau Foo, it should be fast. While queuing up, my friend from Holiday Tours came to call me and asked whether I was doing the closing ceremony. She said that the place is closing down and moving to Imbi Plaza soon.

There is a variety of Yong Tau Foo ingredients such as foo chuk, fish balls, ladies fingers, pig's skin, etc. I feel that dish is just ok. Only the sauce made the  difference. 

Imbi Market Ah Weng Kor Hainanese Coffee

I have heard my colleague, Sally Ho who told me countless times about how great the food in Bukit Bintang market is. Little did I know that she was referring to this. I only found when I was googling for some local food in KL area near Pasar Seni. Moreover, it's not every day that I get the chance to eat in KL due to heavy traffic jam there. The prices are very cheap here as we bought 3 delicious mangoes for merely RM 5!

The food area was so crowded, and most stalls have queue. We had to queue up to get a table at the most famous Ah Weng Kor Hainanese coffee area which is popular for the fragrant coffee and toasted bread with a big dollop of fattening and high cholesterol butter. The price was so cheap as it cost only RM 8 for 3 cups of coffee and also 1 piece of toasted bread with butter! I really love the thick coffee.

I heard the place is moving to Pudu Plaza in mid April or May

Le' Garden

I saw some blogs and facebook post by Eddy Rush about this place so I was tempted to come here on Saturday, 16 April to celebrate some of the time off from work. The sky has dark and threatening to rain so my friend tried to deter me from going. But I was determined to go there and thank god I did for god allowed me to finish the photo-taking and only only started raining during dinner time.

I wonder why it is named Le Gardenz whereas each of the container has a different concept. For instance, the exterior has fake grass on the wall and the outer area has a garden cafe area which most bloggers have featured in their blogs leading to me thinking that's the only thing here. 

As I walked further, there was a Okinawa Coffee Container and also a container for cooking only pasta. 

There is a bigger container whereby the decor is more like Teddy Bear and Knights and decorated in old fashioned design with old antiques inside and long wooden tables and old type lights. Entering this container is akin to being transported to a era of a few centuries ago. 

We could walk up a spiral staircase, and found ourselves inside an elegant looking dining room. There are 2 of such rooms that we could rent out to our friends. 

Another dining area has laidback seating and also a love tree featuring love locks and roses around it. 

Next to it, is London Double Decker Bus whereby we could dine inside. Dining inside a container means every movement can be heard on the shaky 'bus'. 

Here and there, there are creative displays of giant Transformers Figurines inside the Double Decker and also beside the Old-Fashioned Dining Hall. 

As for the food, they serve Western Food like charcoal burgers, steaks, spaghetti, pasta, pizza and a wide range of drinks to be chosen. Since it was already 6 pm, I didn't want to risk having insomnia by ordering coffee but I am definitely making a comeback to try out the Cotton Candy Espresso. I ordered Yam Latte and also Iron Man Fruit Juice instead.

Hot Yam Latte (RM 9) 

There is a beautiful perfect heart on the foam. The drink has a slight yam taste that was not too overpowering. 

Iron Man (RM 12) 

This is the best fruit juice ever made with banana, pineapple and strawberry whereby all the fruit taste is distinctive. They serve it inside a special bottle that looks arabic or looks like those hard liquor bottles. 

Australian Ribeye Steak (RM 36) 

Initially my friend wanted to order Norwegian Grilled Salmon with Herbs but I thought the steak looks better with garlic sauce. It was not bad and done medium rare. I like the grilled potato and carrot that are made to be not that hard and soft enough to be chewed. 

Braised Lamb Shank (RM 38) 

This is by far, much better than any I have had in the past. The huge lamb shank is boiled till very soft and tender and succulent. The thick sauce goes very well with soft smooth mashed potatoes that looked homemade instead of coming out of the can. 

Lollipop Sumiyaki Coffee Ice-cream (RM 3.20) 

I could not resist myself when there is something this special. The ice-cream is rich is coated with white chocolate on the outside.

The range of special food here really makes this place lives up to its creative hangout area. Must I mention that even the washroom in container had star wars painted outside? 

This place is the best to chillax, relax, have gatherings from small to big from friends and family and also enjoy photo-taking to the max!

Molly's Coffee : Spaghetti Olio

I was having some issues and came here to have some girl talk with my colleague. This is one of our favourite places due to the great coffee and food and of course, price, in my case. The ambience is also quite good for hanging out with artsy art painted on the wall.

Spaghetti Olio Seafood (RM 16) 

The spaghetti is amazing with 3-4 big prawns, 2 big mussels, mushrooms and a lot of vegetables. The price is very worth the food and ingredients used. I ate till I was so full!

Spaghetti Olio Mushroom 

All the pasta and food here are superb. I didn't taste much of this and only stole my colleague's food for photo-taking.


I like the way they serve the premium teas here with cute teapot and cup and saucer

Affogato (RM 10) 

For RM 10, this is the first time I meet people so generous to serve 2 scoops of vanilla ice-cream for this Affogato. The blend of bitter coffee with 1 big scoops of ice-cream turned this to a very sweet one.
