Noodle Experts 麵匠 @Kenyalang Park, Kuching

Address: Lot 10716, Kenyalang Park Shopping Centre, Jalan Sim Kheng Hong, Wisma Lai Suee Yian, 93300 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Monday - Sunday 6:30am - 1:00pm

Have not updated my blog for some time as I had no time to try out other places. Usually had quick meal at place which was convenient to go. I have not been to Noodle Experts for long time. My old post of Noodle Experts was published in 2013.

I ordered the Mee Pok Set (RM8.00). The soup contains shrimp, pork liver, fish ball, meatball, 3-layer pork slices, beancurds and veges. The taste was flavourful, fresh ingredients and big portion. It's good that they used the freshly fried red onions, not the commercial pack which you can get off-the-shelf.

The noodle served was kolo mee, not mee pok (I asked for two mee pok sets). The noodle was tasted alright, not as aromatic and flavourful as the branch at Jalan Song. But I was quite pleased with its fried lard.

Yoogane Korean Cuisine @Vivacity Megamall, Kuching

Address: Level 3, Vivacity Megamall, Jalan Wan Alwi, 93350 Kuching
Business hours: 10:00AM - 10:00PM

My friend tried this dak galbi from Korea not long ago, had high praise on it so I suggested to my bro to have dinner here last Tuesday. Here we were, bumped into my bro's colleagues at the entrance who also had two thumbs up for their food.

We ordered the Yoogane Army Stew (RM89.90) as my SIL prefers to have soup and no spicy. I personally prefer to try their chicken galbi. Maybe I'll jio my friend to try it one day. They also provide two side dishes, kimchi and white radish.

The staff came to help us to cook from time to time until it's ready to serve. The mozzarella cheese is so enticing, it would be even taste better to stir fry it with noodle. 

The staff recommended this Chicken Galbi Cheesy Fried Rice to us, saying he has tried it and taste very good.

It was really cheesy indeed.

Overall, the food was good. But because it's a restaurant, the 10% service charge with 6% SST is really a kill. Even though their service was good. We paid about RM26 alone for the extra cost. I guess I'll have to think twice to have it again because of the extra charges.

Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap 家鄉牛什 @Tabuan Tranquility 3, Kuching

Address: Ground Floor, Lot 3261, TT3 Commercial Centre, Jalan Canna, 93350 Kuching, Sarawak
Business hours: Monday - Saturday 07:00am - 07:00pm; Sunday 07:00am - 05:30pm

I have not explore any new place for food in Kuching lately. My bro discovered this place from FB and brought us for its beef noodles. I just searched online and got to know it is from Miri.

They serve assorted beef dishes.

Besides beef, they have pork as well.

My mum and I ordered their signature dish, Ngau Chap Soup RM12.80. First time I tasted beef spleen, totally cannot accept the awful smell.

Beef Stew Meat Mee, RM9.80.

Slice Meat Mee, RM9.80.

My verdict, the soup is flavourful but it has one kind of smell which I don't really find it pleasant to taste. My brother likes it though.

Pretty FengHuang 俏凤凰苗家牛肉粉 @Comicity 动漫星城, Guangzhou, China

Address: 广东省广州市越秀区吉祥路1号

Pretty FengHuang at Comicity has one disadvantage because of its location in the mall. Not noticeable but the food quality and taste are impressive. It's located at a level below 遇见小面. We had been strolled at Comicity for few days and passed by this shop with less diners. I just stopped to view the menu to check out their specialty. They are specialized in beef and pork menu.

I was attracted to its sour soup beef vermicelli dish. Finally the next day we decided to give it a try.

This is my favourite, 帆爷酸汤肥牛粉. One of their top 4 signature dishes. The taste was really impeccably delicious, sourness of the soup was appetizing. Ingredients were generous and colourful, had mushroom, tomato, and broccoli.

My friend had 苗家红酸汤牛肉粉, one of their signature dishes too.

The next day we came back here again for dinner. And I had this 黄酸汤肥牛粉. Full of peppery taste and hot soup, less sourness but not a bad choice as well.

Mihimihi法式旗舰店 @BeiJingLu 北京路步行街, Guangzhou, China

Address: 533, Huifu East Road, BeiJing Lu, Yuexiu Qu, Guangzhou 广州越秀区惠福东路533号
Business hours: 10:00am - 10:00pm

Ever since we discovered the most happening area in Guangzhou, BeiJing Lu 北京路. We shopped there almost everyday. This Mihimihi alone has 3 branches in this area. But this particular branch caught our attention because of the queue line.

They have three signature menus, French crispy puff, Japanese Souffle pancake, and fruits tea.

They have different flavours of French crispy puff: Original, Matcha, Strawberry, Chocolate, Durian, and Mango.

The open kitchen concept is great, customers can view the process of making souffle pancake.

We ordered the original cheese flavour of souffle pancake, RMB18.

Can't deny that they are good at branding. We tried both French crispy puff and Japanese souffle pancake. However, I am not impressed with the taste though. The cheese taste of its souffle pancake was rather bland.

I just found out from Google that Mihimihi has arrived at Sunway Velocity in Malaysia this year. But the branch in Malaysia serves only French crispy puff.

遇见小面 @Comicity 动漫星城, Guangzhou, China

Address: 广东省广州市越秀区吉祥路1号

I usually shopped at Comicity 动漫星城 in Guangzhou. The other day I found this place has the picture of noodle on the menu that caught my eyes. So we decided to try it out. It was quite full during peak hours, best to visit after lunch or dinner hours.

The service was good. You can place order using WeChat and pay by WeChat pay as well. But the sad thing is that they don't accept Alipay here.

This is the picture that caught my attention, it looks so irresistible.

The menu:

They have 14 branches in Guangzhou, 4 branches in Shenzhen.

I had the signature dish, noodles with peas and minced meat in spicy sauce. It tastes great, the texture of the noodle is springy but spicy though.

樂叔老西關名小食 @宝华路 Guangzhou, China

Address: 宝华路59号侧十五甫三巷

I went to Guangzhou again not long ago. That's the reason I was absent from my blog. Honestly speaking, visiting China during festive seasons (Mid Autumn Festival + China National Day) is really a bad idea. The MRT will be very crowded, the sightseeing places will be packed with tourists too.

I was planning to bring my friend to try out the famous fish skin dish from 陳添記 at 上下九街. I got quite stunned to see the long queues at each branch. Starved and we just randomly chose one to dine in. We got a seat at this 樂叔老西關名小食.

The congee 艇仔粥 is a must have in Guangzhou. The one we had here also not bad. And they have the fish skin dish 爽鱼皮 too. The texture is crunchy as well, no fishy smell at all. But the look might be a bit gross, it looks like snake skin to me. I got very nostalgic to see this glass bottle coke. Coca-Cola in glass bottle always tastes better than the ones in aluminium can and PVC bottle.

The fish skin dish costs RMB25 and congee RMB10. The food price in China is quite high. Generally MYR15 above, even at hawker stalls. Compared to my visit to Guangzhou two years ago, they are getting more advanced now. The cashless payment is very prevalent. All vendors are using Alipay and WeChat pay. I hope we can adapt to the change in Malaysia too. I just started to use Boost app last week.
