Food Review-Cosy Place Restaurant-Wangsa Maju-Kuala Lumpur

Finally i got to taste new foods in a new place. This restaurant is not really new as i believe it has been opened for few years now, it's just that i didnt make any effort to try it previously. It is located in a shop row behind  the NZ restaurant, the one opposite Carrefour Wangsa Maju.

Let's look at the menu....

and we ordered...

Sizzling Taufu With Crab Meat- this can be eaten with with rice but we made it our starter. Im grateful that we did actually taste the crab and also the crab meat in this dish as most restaurant tend to be stingy on crab-as they are expensive.

Spaghetti Bolognaise-Quite a big portion and can be shared. They are also generous on the sauce and the beef and the sauce is not watery thus it "cling" nicely to every strand of the pasta.


Sizzling Yee Mee-Also another generous portion and can be shared. Dont be deceived by its dark-laden with soy sauce-look as it was not salty at all. I also love the fact that they put in lots of mushrooms in it...mushrooms are my favourite!

Half-Grilled Chicken with Mash Potato-this is a "massive" portion and SHOULD be shared. Although it took quite sometime for this dish to be served but it was well worth the wait. The chicken is tender and cooked thorugh. However i do really hope they have more charred-grilled parts on it expecially the skin as i love some crispy bit in my food. It was served with barbeque sauce which was also nice. Only the lacking part was the salad..they used chinese cabbage here, which i thought was a totally cheapskate alternative to normal salad.

Char Grilled Beef Burger-good to be shared as well. In this you'll find a nice slab of beef patty, topped with slice of cheese,fried egg and beef bacon, salad drizzled with mayo and mustard and a bowl of fries. A wholesome and hearty meal indeed.

When we came around 6pm we were the first customer in the restaurant but later the restaurant started to be filled up with mostly families and couples. I believe it is well known that its good to bring along a companion if you want to eat here as the food portions are best be shared.

some shots of the restaurant design and deco..........

Will i return to this place?Surely as i believe they have an extensive arrays of foods on offer and it serves both the Western and local/Asian cuisine. The pricing is also affordable and with good portion. Service can be improved as we realized most of the servants were just standing near the bar/kitchen most of the time and waiting to clear tables, rather than walking around and asking the diners whether they need anything else, the thing that they ought to do.Kay2012

Chocolate Ville-Bangkok

Bangkok is a vibrant city. You will definitely find many interesting places which had been established many years ago and yet there are new places sprouted across the city for you to visit as well, making your choices of sightseeing endless.

Aside from the usual touristy places within central Bangkok, nowadays you'll find new shopping malls/shopping area/attractions being built on the outskirt of Bangkok such as the Bang Na area, an area located in between the city centre and the Suvarnabhumi Airport. This area is currently housing the largest IKEA store in Asia and also the biggest mall in Thailand, Mega Bangna. Not to be forgotten is the IMPACT exhibition arena which is located in Muangthong Thani, also on the Bangkok outskirt. 

During my recent trip to Bangkok, me and T had the chance to visit another interesting new place called the Chocolate Ville. It is located in Ram Inthra, around 40 minutes by car from centre Bangkok. Chocolate Ville is actually a restaurant  with a concept of the dining areas constructed to replicate a small town in the West. You will find most of the buildings that you'd find in the West here such as a boathouse, a windmill, a dairy mill, a conservatory and all the other buildings with western architectural theme. Being here will make you forget that you are actually in smouldering hot Bangkok.

We went there around afternoon just to know that it only opens from 4pm to midnight. Further, if you intend to eat here, advanced reservation of at least a day before your visit is advisable. Will definitely go there next time to taste the food that they serve here, but for now, do enjoy the wonderful pictures that we captured during our wander around the area. Cheers-Kay 2012.
