#82: Nyonya For Dad’s Birthday

31st December 2017, New Year’s Eve, my dad’s birthday. Yes. the last day of the year. My mom made the booking to dine at Nyonya Roots Private Kitchen located at No. 43, Jalan SS 19/1, 47500 Subang Jaya, Selangor. For unknown reasons, the tagging address in Facebook, Instagram, and Swarm indicates 3K Sport Complex Subang Jaya which is actually at SS 13.

I, only know EAT.. so I don’t know what’s the exact name of the dishes we had in the menu. Gelaran biasa tau lah… 😀 😀

Reservation: MUST because they don’t accept walk-in.

Location: It’s a bungalow house by the main road, near a row of shops, and a surau.

Halal: Yes.

Total Damage: Mom order a 6-pax meal but according to the receipt, it was a 5-pax meal, that cost RM 280. No idea why.. And mom only realized the difference after we left the place.

Food: Recommended because it suits our taste buds. Not overly salty that usually cause us thirst after eating.

Ambiance: It gives me a homey feel. Well… you do need to remove your shoes before going into the house. It’s good to listen to music while dining, and there are rooms to cater your needs. Most of the indoor dining tables I was can cater at least 10 person. The room we were in, is air-conditioned and there’s a ceiling fan too.

Now… let me share pictures…

Give it a try! The appetizer is crunchy and refreshing to start the meal. 😀 😀

#81: FOODHUB

I have always wanted to try this restaurant since its opening. Finally today got the chance because I found a place to park. I am never good at side parking, that is why I waited till just now.

Click on the pictures for a clearer view if you need.

RESTORAN FOODHUB is a Western, Asian, Fusion Restaurant that is located at 64 Jalan BS 6/2, Taman Bukit Serdang, 43300 Seri Kembangan, Selangor. Their contacts are 03-89407233 and foodhub717@gmail.com. This place opens from 5.30 pm until I don’t know what time already. 😀

Total Damage: RM 18.80

Grilled Chicken with Hainan Sauce, Salad, and Potato Wedges @ RM 13.90

In the receipt, it says Chicken Chop. If you order just Grilled Chicken as in the menu, it cost you only RM 11.90. But mine is RM 13.90 because I customized the sauce and 1 side dish; the potato wedges. I was given boneless chicken.

Cold Lemon Mint @ RM 4.90

Refreshing. Nice minty smell.

I guess the owners are Chinese-Filipinos. There are at least 2 Filipino ladies at service, because the other waiters and waitress are Chinese, and they looked like having school holidays. Air-conditioned, I’m not sure if there’s WIFI or not because I was using own data. There’s music playing. I paid my bill with cash so I don’t know if they accept credit card or not. I’ll come again some other time..

Notes:

  • I replace Nescafe with Milo.
  • I used Full Cream Milk instead of Fresh Milk.
  • I sieved the Cocoa Powder.

  4. Scrap down the mixture using spatula and mix again. 5 sec/Speed 3.5.
  5. Strained the batter into the lined 8 inch round pan and place the pan into the varoma unit (place chopsticks under the pan for hot air ventilation) and cover the top of the pan loosely with a piece of parchment paper. —- I didn’t use the varoma unit, I used the bamboo steamer.

  7. Add in 1500 g water into TM bowl to boil. MC/15 min/V/Speed 2.

#66: Pho Mi Cafe

Yesterday I had dinner with my parents at a newly opened Vietnamese restaurant, nearby their house. This is the second time my mom and I have Vietnamese food.

PHO MI CAFE (002673928-D) opens from 1030 till 2200 everyday. It is located at 11A, JALAN USJ 10/1D, TAIPAN BUSINESS CENTRE, 47620 SUBANG JAYA, SELANGOR (same row as PappaRich). You may call them at 03-8081 5252 or email them at phomicafe@gmail.com for information.

We ordered 9 items and I have only 6 pictures here. 😀 Not in any specific order.

Rollover the picture for the price. For a bigger picture, click on the picture itself.

The missing pictures are XA GUNG (HOT LEMONGRASS TEA) RM 6.50 and NUOC AM (WARM WATER) RM 0.50. Mom had the warm water and dad had the tea.

The price isn’t that expensive as compared to the one we had that day. We liked the Beef Steak because it’s yummy on its own, even eating just like that without the baguette. As for the Pho, we the beef is not as nice as the one my mom and I had that day. As for my Vietnamese drip coffee…. yesterday was the first time I see a glass of tea served with the coffee. According to the waitress, the tea is for you to drink after the coffee. The tea is kinda aromatic. It’s funny because i have never heard anyone drinking tea after coffee. I have been to Vietnamese restaurants but never once served like that.

I suggest you give this place a try. Just for your information, this place is kinda small and it’s very pack during peak hours.

Bye…
