[By Invitation] Nando's Launched New Flavour: Mango & Lime

I was invited by Nando's to their event of launching new flavour "Mango & Lime" at The Spring shopping mall last Thursday. There were medias and bloggers invited by them too. Met new friends, fed well by Nando's and went home with a bag of goodies. Aduhai... Kamsahamnida.

Mango & Lime PERi-PERi Chicken

The side dishes served: Mediterranean rice, mashed potato (chips, chargrilled veg and Mediterranean salad not in picture).

The unordinary brownies, PERi-PERi Brownies. Have you ever tried a rich chocolate brownies that tastes a little bit spicy? Seems awkward, but not bad at all.

Chinese Barbecue Specialist 烧腊第一家 @Padungan, Kuching

Address: 50, Jalan Padungan, 93100 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business Hours: Monday - Sunday 6:30am - 8:30pm

Monday is my day I have to run errands outside. I am going to Jakarta on 17th Feb, so dropped by Tun Jugah Money Changer to exchange some Rupiah. After done it, time was about 2:15pm I was feeling quite hungry. I suggested to have lunch at Chinese Barbecue Specialist, bro agreed. It's just a short walking distance from Tun Jugah.

The menu is hanging on the wall. They have roasted chicken, roasted pork, roasted duck, char siu, pork ribs, and sausage. Also got a few types of stewed soups.

Other than BBQ menus, you can order dishes as shown below:

We ordered roasted pork, roasted chicken and roasted duck. Normally a bowl of soup will be served together. There are two types of dipping sauce, I'm not too sure what us the dark sauce made of. It tastes a bit sour and sweet, prune? Anyway, it is the best match with the roasted duck. The chilli sauce is not spicy but it pairs well with roasted pork and chicken.

The plate of roasted pork, roasted chicken and roasted duck. I like the roasted pork and roasted duck the most. The duck meat is not hard to chew and still juicy. Roasted pork, everyone would expect to have the crispy top layer and I assure you that this one won't let you down.

I noticed there are a few customers having the kolo mee. I doubt the kolo mee should be quite good? Well, will find out next time. Here's the map to Chinese BBQ Specialist:

Laksa House 我来也茶室 @Parkcity Commercial Square, Bintulu

Address: 75, Jalan Tun Ahmad Zaidi, Parkcity Commercial Square, 97000 Bintulu, Sarawak.
Business hours: Tuesday - Sunday 7am - 1pm (might sold out earlier)

In Bintulu, there are two types of food has distinctive taste. One is the beef noodles and another one is the laksa. I never had the beef noodles and laksa in Kuching that taste similar like those in Bintulu. There are three places in Bintulu served the best laksa, and Laksa House is one of them. Laksa House has been awarded a few times as the best cleanest coffee shop in Bintulu. And there were beauty pageant contestants ever visited here too.

Laksa is prepared at the entrance. Other than laksa, they also have kolo mee. I never try their kolo mee so I can't give any comment. Majority of the customers come here for laksa.

This is the big bowl of laksa. Bigger shrimps and bigger portion. The ratio of the coconut milk and laksa paste is well balanced. The taste of coconut milk is neither too strong or light.

They produced their own belacan sauce, it is good match with the cooked shrimps. The beehoon (rice vermicelli) they used is also thinner compared to the laksa in Kuching. I can't remember how much is the big bowl of laksa cost, RM7.50?

Mom's Laksa @ Rojak Muhammad Kucei Kafe @Jalan Petanak, Kuching

Address: Ground Floor S/L 13 Lot 95 & 96, Jalan Petanak, 93450 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business Hours: Monday - Sunday 7:00am - 5:00pm

Happy Chinese New Year, everyone! Today's the first day of CNY, any good place for breakfast or lunch? Majority of coffeeshops and restaurants will take the first and second day of CNY off. If you are craving for Sarawak laksa, Mom's Laksa & Rojak Muhammad Kucei Kafe can be another good option.

I got to know Mom's Laksa from my Malay friend. When I asked her where's the best laksa in Kuching, she recommended Mom's Laksa. A Malay version of Sarawak laksa. It has a few branches in Kuching, and the branch I visited is located opposite Hi-Bread Kopitiam. Besides Sarawak Laksa, there also served the famous Indian rojak, Rojak Muhammad Kucei too.

Ordered Air Bandung this time. Hadn't had it for long time.

A small plate of Rojak Ayam, RM6. I like the long bean fritters the most, but the gravy was slightly watery.

A big bowl of laksa, RM8.

A small bowl of laksa, RM6.

The laksa broth is thicker compared to the other laksa (by Chinese) in Kuching. The coconut milk is heavier in taste, and slightly sweet too. My bro finished it all till the last drop. It was quite good actually, but the shrimps were not as fresh.

Pork Leg Rice 老雄猪脚饭 @Foodchow Road 1, Kuching

Address: Lot 7057, Seksyen 64, Foochow Road 1, Poh Ming Park, 93300 Kuching, Sarawak.

Last Monday I was wanting to try out new place for my blog material. Three options for my bro to choose, he preferred to have the pork leg rice. So I brought him to try the pork leg rice here. Pork leg rice is one of the famous foods in Kuching and '老雄猪脚饭' is the well-known one among Kuchingnites. I think this coffee shop has changed new owner, it's called "Tong Nian Food Court" now.

The stall selling pork leg rice, you can choose the ingredients you want: pork intestine, tripe, 3 layer pork, pork leg, chicken meat, and egg.

The pork leg rice comes with the soup, curry sauce and blended chilli sauce. These should not be missed. Pour the curry sauce on your rice, dip the meat with the chilli sauce, then have a sip of the soup.

This the portion for two pax, total RM14. I ordered all the ingredients except chicken meat.

I like their pork meat, tender and not over salty. The pork skin also very chewy. But I was rather disappointed with the white rice. The rice they used should be the cheapest. This dish would be perfect if they used better quality of rice.

Buntal 88 Seafood Centre, Kuching

Address: 317, Jalan Kpg. Buntal, Kampung Buntal, 93010 Kuching, Sarawak.
Business Hours: Monday - Sunday 10:30am - 10:00pm

Do you like seafood? If you do, this post is meant for you. There are a number of places for seafood in Kuching. Buntal is one of the well-known places for fresh seafood. But driving from Kuching town to Buntal take approximately 40 minutes more or less, depends on your location and road traffic condition. It's not too far from Damai. If you come here for Rainforest World Music Festival in July, you can opt to have your lunch/dinner here too.

There are a number of seafood restaurants here at Kampung Buntal. Most of the popular ones are run by Chinese. No pork served, so no worries if you are a Muslim. There was a table of Malay customers too when we went there. If you want a halal restaurant, there are also restaurants run by Muslims.

I used to try Teo Seafood too, near at the entrance to Kampung Buntal. If not mistaken, this was my first time to try Buntal 88 Seafood Centre. Verdict? Exceeded my expectation, tasted real good. We went on Monday, huhu.. Luckily they were available on Monday too.

This is how it looks like in day time. Oh yeah, surprisingly they even have two VIP rooms equipped with air-conditioner.

This was our view from seating. The restaurant with best view at Buntal is Lim Hock Ann Seafood. I'll blog next time if I have chance to go Buntal again for seafood.

Stir-fried Midin/milin/bilin. On the way to Buntal, there are midin plants everywhere.

Lala clam soup. This was our favourite among all, the clams were so fresh and its size was slightly bigger than those I had at Jalan Alor. The soup was not as spicy but guaranteed tasty.

This is their signature fried tofu. The tofu has stuffed with century egg and salted egg yolk. Not too bad actually, but I still prefer the particular signature fried tofu at Batu Lintang.

Deer meat with dry chilies. The meat was tenderly soft. This dish is really goes well with rice.

Salted egg crabs. After we finished all the dishes as shown above, then only this crabs dish was served. Though long wait, but it didn't disappoint us. Crab meat was superb fresh, it's like they just caught it when we placed the order.

Guess how much is the bill? We had 2 coconuts, 1 milo, 1 Zapple can drink, 4 bowls of rice, and the above dishes for 3 pax portion. Bill totalled up RM127.00 for 4 pax. It's reasonable price, I thought it would be more than RM150. Crabs were the most expensive, RM55 for two nos.

Spring Garden Cafe, Bintulu

Address: No. 268, Taman Sri Dagang, 97000 Bintulu
Business hours: 5pm something till dawn.

I have post the famous chicken feet at Spring Garden Cafe before, click here. And, these are the dishes we normally ordered at Spring Garden Cafe in Bintulu. Though the appearance doesn't look appetizing. But I can assure you that every dish is amazingly delicious, it goes well with rice.

Cockles, my favourite. I rarely fail to skip this dish whenever we have meal here.

Stir-fried kangkong (water spinach).

Mixed vegetables soup.

Pork intestine and ear.

For some reasons, we never change our mind to try out other dishes here. Maybe it embodies our childhood memories in it. It was our happiest moment when my parents brought us out for dinner.
