Restoran Lan Je at Kota Damansara, Petaling Jaya.

Now this is one interesting food experience that we had during one of our quick getaway to KL. 

One person gets one fish, literally. 

This is quite a great find as everyone knows that steamed fish dish is not a cheap dish when it comes to having a few-courses Chinese meal with your family or friends. It is often one of the expensive items where people usually would not order if budget is a thing. 

However, at this restaurant, everyone is supposed to get a steamed fish each. It could be because of the price. 

The price is depending on the tilapia fish that they get that particular day and it ranges from RM15-RM20, if I am not mistaken. 

His sister brought us to one of their cawangan, and we both fell in love with the whole concept of it. The place is usually packed with humans too okay. 

They do have other chinese dishes that people normally order. Not everyone who eats there will order one fish each. Some will order 2 plates of steamed fish, a plate of meat and vege dish and that's for dinner. 

No, they do not have variety style of cooking the fish. Only one standard style - steam. I think if not mistaken, its teochew style. 

 He says: Fulahhhhh! I really like this steamed fish! The taste of ginger is really strong though. I guess it is to cover the fishy smell. Another must try in KL!
She says: I am never big fan of fish and I rarely crave for fish-dish, especially steamed kind of fish. I tried this once and now I look forward to my next trip to KL, just so I can have this again. The steamed sauce is really tasty. It's almost like teochew style but this one tastes a lot better with the chopped ginger and cilipadi. You can opt to have it done less spicy. LOVE THIS DISH!

Huong Que Vietnamese Restaurant at Lebuh Melaka.

We are one of those people who fell in love with food items once we've been to the particular country and tasted their original local foods. 

It is no surprise that when we came back from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam not too long ago, we were craving so badly for their local iced coffee, pho and banh mi!

One of the usual Vietnamese Restaurant that we usually go to when we have such cravings is this

A good friend told us about a place that he thought was better than the one that we always go to. So, we decided to give it a try. 

We can never say no to Vietnamese food. Never. 

Now that I think about it, I am craving for it now. G.

Not a very big shop.

Cafe Sua Da (Trung Bguyen Vietnamese Coffee Milk) - RM4.70
He says: My favourite! Anywhere, anytime!
She says: Pretty okay. Not too milky, not as strong as I thought it would be. 

Pho Bo (Beef Noodle) - RM10.70
He says: Just okay okay. Soup takda ohmmm!
She says: The soup is pretty sweet and lovely. The beef okay-okay amount. I think it tasted really normal and doesn't have much wow factor. 

Banh Mi Thit (Vietnamese Pork Sandwich) - RM10.70
He says: Banh mi! Could be better.. the pork is a bit too fat.
She says: I'm sorry but this one I really don't like. I love banh mi, but this one is just different. Bread is different. The roasted pork slice in there tasted fake? It's very plastic-ish and the whole piece is basically frozen fats, or at least it tasted like it la. Nope for me.

Ca Loc Kho Tieu (Snake Head Fish with Pepper) - RM15.70
He says: Like the sauce but overall doesn't suit my taste.
She says: Snake-fish hmm. Interesting. I have never had anything like this. The sauce of this dish is amazing! Too bad it's the dry kind. I cannot express how much I love the sauce. The fish has lots of tiny bones so gotta be careful with that. Overall, this one I love.
