Surisit Thai Kopitiam, TTDI

I guess it's being well promoted in food blogs, magazines and also among the neighbourhood.

The Thai Kopitiam in Taman Tun Dr Ismail or TTDI -Surisit Thai Kopitiam.

 It's one of the gems hidden in the neighbourhood other than Mukha (next to Surisit) and Artisan Roast (at the row behind Surisit).

The interior was quite cosy and homey, just like our kopitiam but with ambiance lighting and cleaner environment.
 Full house on Saturday night.

 Dessert first?
Actually because the weather was so hot that we need something to cool down, hence the upside down sequence with the main food.

Torb tim krob it is, RM6.90.
Refreshing and not too sweet.

It's only me and fangyee, so we ordered individual plates.

 Khao Phat Sator Kung Heng, RM14.90.
What does that mean?
I have no idea if I was only shown with these words in the menu.
Don't worry, the menu is in English, and the dish is named something like Thai fried rice with petai, er well, I guess so la.
Anyway, the petai wasn't too powerful (a good news to non-petai-lover?), for us we need it to be stronger! The fried rice was ok, but the sambal was not as spicy as we wanted it to be.

 Here's another food fetish of mine -ordering Phat Thai whenever I go to Thai Restaurant or the first visit to the restaurant.
The ingredients look authentic, and also the a-bit-wet noodles.
It was quite good (not the best yet) and the prawns were too many (I don't really take prawn) but I don't wanna waste them. So I ate but didn't manage to finish them as they weren't as fresh and juicy as they should be.

Oh I miss Bangkok~

We plan to come back to try the a la carte menu next time.
Let's hope for great food, and for the tom yam that we had to missed this time!

Brunch @The Red Beanbag, Publika

One the same day we attended the BIG Weekend event, we had brunch at The Red Beanbag.
I was told by quite a few friends about their fabulous brunch and coffee, so here we go~

"Some stairs are worth climbing, we're not your usual." 
With this quote, well, it's located at first floor overlooking the pavilion and Ben's.
And yes, with a staircase to climb to reach them.

Worth it?
Just read on. :)
 Looking at the menu, I can imagine how huge the meals could be.
I was trying to search for vegetarian meal, but I don't remember there's any to choose (except muesli).

Invited review: Coffee Stain by Joseph, Publika

Thanks to Ivy and Nigel for the invitation to this coffee place.
It was previously known as Joseph @ Kitchen, and now they are Coffee Stain by Joseph.

I had visited them 3 times last year, which the first time was to attend coffee appreciation workshop by Cheryl Lee.
Since then I came back twice. What else? For coffee la. :)

Assorted cakes & desserts and bottled drinks to choose.

Their awards from Battle Of Baristas. 

My food fetish I -cappuccino

I have some must-order food whenever I go for food hunting especially when I pay my first visit there.

For those who know me very well, cappuccino is always my order in cafes.
Unless I've been there for a few times then I'll explore others.

I can say that it's my way of determining if they serve good coffee. :)

Here are a part of my 'collection' of cappuccino with my verdict.

 Coffee Famille, Sunsuria Avenue.
My favourite hang out.

Food from Jing Si Books & Cafe

I used to be quite active in Tzu Chi when I was studying in university.
Being a part of them had made me a better person. I believe. :)

They have a few Jing Si Books & Cafe(s) in PJ/KL area nowadays.
I've visited Puchong and Kelana Jaya ones, but I've yet to go to Tropicana City Mall outlet.

We bought biscuits and noodles, even instant noodles which is my sister's favourite.

 Here's brown sugar thin crackers, RM6 per box.
It's dairy-free.

It's thin and crunchy, with nice fragrance of brown sugar.

Pumpkin noodles, RM13 per pack.

 Some description and facts about the noodles in Chinese.

 This is the way my sis cooked it, with siew pak choy, carrot, wolfberries and dang gui.
Healthy and delicious!

SiTigun, Penang

I was in Penang again on a weekend last month for a friend's pre-wedding outdoor shooting.
But I was too late for the first shooting, so I went to lepak first before joining the 2nd session of shooting.

After passing Komtar area towards Gurney side, I thought of stopping by Continental Bakery at Jalan Nagor to buy some bread.
I was there last time a few days before Chinese New Year, but it's closed.
So this time I made it to go in and get the nice smell of the freshly baked.

Looks like the egg tarts and cinnamon bread are the popular ones as many came in and packed at least a dozen of them.
I don't think egg tarts can last till I back to SP at night, so I got the cinnamon bread and wholemeal croissants in a pack of 5.

I didn't take any photo there, but the bread was good.
No wonder the heavy flow of customers when I was there.

Since I still have time to kill, I went to SiTigun just situated right opposite of the bakery.

I tried their cappuccino before, so I wanted to try other stuff this time.
So I took the recommendation from the barista to try Turkish coffee, with tiramisu.

Not to my liking as it's quite sweet and it was wet at the base like drenched in sweet coffee syrup or something.
Turkish coffee.
This is the first time trying this kind of coffee, and it was actually quite good. Without sugar.
