Organic Recipe, Bandar Utama

I came across this restaurant when I saw a link from a friend's facebook page.
I thought the name was familiar, then only I realized I saw the signboard at a junction when I was on my way to Sunway Mas. 

It is situated in a quite neighbourhood in Bandar Utama.
You might find it weird, as it is hiding in a condominium named Casa Utama.

Once you reached the carpark entrance, you'll have to pay RM5 per entry.
BUT remember to claim the receipt so that you can claim it back from the restaurant.

Follow the sign to basement, then you will see the shop front after 2 floors.

They sell organic goodies too.

That's bah kut teh with mee suah on the left, RM10.90.
Very big portion, it was served in one full bowl that's enough for 2 small eaters.

My order was bitter gourd noodle, RM9.90.
The bitter gourd was bitter, of course, but I like it.

The noodle was shinny and crystal clear like glass. It's springy and I love the texture!

I plan to bring more people and try out their ala carte dishes on my next visit.

Bianco, Damansara Perdana

I already ended my working day in DP, one thing I'm gonna miss is food, other than All Day the convenient store. =)

Chinese food, kopitiam, mamak, ban mee, western food, italian food, etc. all in DP.
One afternoon, i was at Bianco having a quiet lunch by myself.
The food is great.
The staffs are friendly.

Navy style interior.

cappuccino rm8, with a little piece of cookie.
nice coffee, even without sugar.

linguine salmone rm17.
with smoked salmon and coliflower.

see how good it was.

 There's still a lot of greens in DP. i hope they will be maintained.

Some doodles.

Sesame baguette & country herb buns by The Baker's Son

 Sesame baguette, RM2.99.

It's nice to be eaten plain, but it's even better to be toasted.
I put cheese to make it yummier~

This is country herb buns 8 pcs for RM2.99 too.
The smell of herbs and the fine texture, good bake!

Champagne fom Sun Moulin

I wonder why they named it 'champagne'.
Nevermind, I only yearn for good bake. =)

Sun Moulin has great selections of everyday-fresh-bakes.
The one I'm visiting is located at old wing of One Utama, opposite newly opened Papparich at ground floor.

This champagne I bought is quite a huge one, enough for a few breakfasts for two.
It's good enough just to eat it with butter or jam, but it's even tastier by toasting it! yummy~

That's my breakfast pack in the photo on a lovely Monday.

My coffee time!

First, I had the french press from Live It Up! @ 1utama a few years ago.

Months ago, I'd got the milk frother from Ikea.

Last week, I bought Ikea's stainless steel milk frother mug! Woohoo~
It's RM23.

And here's the coffee family! =)

The Baker's Son, Damansara Perdana

This bakery is under the management of Jaya Grocer.
It's one of my favourite bakeries after I found it out months ago.
They sell extensive selections of  baguettes.

Fried onion cheese baguette is one of them.
There are other choices such as country herbs, alpine grain, multigrain, green tea, etc. 

Other than that, cakes, loafs, and drinks like coffee also available in the bakery.
Besides, there are seats available for you to enjoy cakes and have a sip of coffee.

They also have another outlet in Empire Shopping Gallery.

Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie

I believe food blogger in kl/pj won't miss out this pastry house cum cafe, making headlines in various food blogs.
So a bunch of us, not wanting to be left behind, visited the oh-so-crowded cafe for Sunday lunch.

Photos of the environment were taken with film camera, so I'll post them once the film is developed.
Here's the food, I mean bread. =)

I skipped my morning coffee just to have this cappuccino here.
Yeah, better don't take too much coffee, I can feel its strength. 2 cups per day is maximum for me.

Apart from bread, they also have pasta. Mr Man had the curry pasta, which is 'yummy' according to him.

See those cutie breads? One is chocolate, and another one is octopus-like which the tails are made of sausage.
Cappuccino of Ms XY, with latte art somemore.

That's not all, I bought some breads to bring home too, without fail. :)
Half loaf of white bread (RM4.80) and a black pepper ciabata (RM3.50) are for breakfast.
You can have the bread loaf cut into 2 pieces, 4 pieces, 6 pieces or 8 pieces by the staffs.
Actually I was aiming at English bread when I first stepped into the cafe by noon. But by the time we were leaving by almost 4pm, the breads were gone~

This is how my breakfast looked like on the next morning.
See how fluffy is the white bread! Normally when I cut bread loaf, the cutting part will be pressed and will remain the shape. But this one they were just like sponge~
For the ciabata, the black pepper is a bit overpowering to me.

Following are photos taken with film camera, hence the heavy noise.

I think I'll revisit the cafe, maybe not during peak hour. =)

DIY: 咖啡渣袋 for coffee leftover

I drink quite a lot of coffee.
Every weekend, I make my own coffee from ground coffee bean at home.
It's such a waste to dump the leftover, so sometimes i dry it under the sun and keep in a bottle.


Coffee leftover can be used to absorb moist and stink.
So I sew a small bag with used fabrics and fill in the leftover.

Then put them in your wardrobe, shoe cabinet or inside your shoes.
But remember to remove them after a period of time, that's when you feel the bag absorbs enough moist ( and before they started to grow mould).
It's just like an organic moist absorber. =)

Coffee paper cup collection

(from left)
  • City Cafe from Taiwan's 7-11, now is the home of my facial cotton. Very cheap, only for about RM4.
  • McD breakfast coffee. Their coffee is too watery to my liking, although the smell is strong.
  • Pacific coffee, hailed all the way from Puchong. Nice cappuccino. RM10.
  • O'briens' cappuccino, not bad.
  • Starbucks Coffee, also cappuccino. I was having a quick lunch and couldn't finish it, so had to take-away.
 I have hot coffee most of the time, you see.
