Petaling Jaya: Slurp Cafe @ Dataran 32 (3 Two Square) Asian Japanese Fusion Super Heroes Theme Cafe Review

If you love super heroes like the avengers in particularly Iron Man or Batman or Spider man or even Dragon Ball, you will find the Slurp Cafe located at No. C-16-01, Dataran 32 or aptly known as 3 Two Square No. 2, Jalan 19/1 46300 Petaling Jaya Selangor Darul Ehsan a super hang out place for you.

Best Restaurant To Eat did a review of this restaurant which has its wall decorated with these super heroes figurines and cartoons character. The entire place looks like you are in this special super heroes wonderland, which decals and little figurines of these super heroes.

So, besides having a meal with your buddies or a cup of latte, you can also enjoy the company of these super heroes that are placed all over the restaurant.

Our food review started with the Okonomiyaki - a fusion Japanese pancake which has Squid, prawns and scallop laden with thin Fried Japanese pancake (much like nachos) and top with a special sauce with mayonnaise. Nice snack to start off our review.

followed by the chicken salad - the salad comes with a generous amount of pan fried chicken fillet and half piece of poached egg.

Next dish is the specially concocted Black Omurice; of which the Japanese rice was fried with squid ink noticeably from the black rice as shown in picture above. Taste wise it was delicious and eaten with the special omelette with the special sauce was anything but tasty. 

To eat the Omurice, one has to slice the top layer of the omelette and upon slicing, it will reveal a rich, fluffy scrambled eggs that will cover the rice.

To accompany the Omurice: there are a number of add on dishes; the one that we had was the karrage chicken. The chicken breast was deep fried with a crusty skin texture.

Another interesting twist at Slurp Cafe is the Maggi Murtabak Chicken Patty; it is a very interesting creation of this dish which has a thick chicken patty; topped with a sunny side up and accompanied with potato wedges and salad as sides. To enjoy this Murtabak is really an acquired taste.

This is then followed by another innovative dish which is the Sambal Pasta - Substituting the rice with pasta and ingredients usually found from the local favourite Nasi Lemak; it was a bold yet another surprisingly tasty dish.

The stir fried pasta with sambal was accompanied with fried anchovies, peanut, hardboiled egg, sambal cockles, cucumber, pan fried sambal chicken, prawn and papadam making it a familiar taste for many to relish.

to end the day; we had 2 lip smacking and eye pleasing dessert which is the Mango Blast which has Mango Sorbet, Vanilla Ice Cream, Yoghurt Ice Cream, Fresh Indian Mango and Blue berries. The Indian Mango was superb and very sweet.

while the Strawberry Fountain has Strawberry Sorbet,Vanilla Ice Cream, Yoghurt Ice Cream, Fresh Japanese Strawberries and Blue berries concoction was indeed a very special sweet sourish end to our review.

At Slurp Cafe, you can have the company of Doraemon and many other characters during your meals at Slurp Cafe.

Overall, the food serves at Slurp Cafe are indeed very slurpy and tasty. With an innovative chef, more dishes will be coming forth. If you just love to hang with your buddies while enjoying a nice meal accompanied with your super heroes, Slurp Cafe @ 3 Two Square will definitely be a good choice for you.

Klang : Angcle Peoh @ Bandar Bukit Tinggi Klang Penang Street Food Comes To Klang Review By Best Restaurant

If you are in Klang and suddenly yearn for some Penang Street food, you will be able to satisfy this craving as Penang Street food has hit Klang in a big way..

Best Restaurant To Eat got the pleasure to be invited for a Penang Street Food at Angcle Peoh located at 42, Lorong Batu Nilam 21B, Bandar Bukit Tinggi 2, Klang, Selangor recently.

At Angcle Peoh, you can enjoy Penang fare without any sweat as the place is air-conditioned with a simple setup with which the walls are decorated with the little journey with which the 3 generations of the Ang family that have been serving the fame Air Itam Assam Laksa since 1950.

Our review started with one of Penang favorite Street Food which is Hokkein Mee a.k.a. Prawn Mee for folks of the Klang Valley. The soup based was very fragrant with the strong aroma of the prawn broth (made from the frying of the prawns shell and blended to fine pieces and boiling it for more than 2 hours).

The serving of the pork for this Hokkien mee was also slightly different from the norm (which uses the dry slice pork fillet); instead it is a slice pork which is marinated and lightly coated with corn starch (much like the pork noodles type).

Next, we were served the Penang Fried Kuey Teow With Duck Eggs; Angcle Peoh also serve the traditional Fried Kuey Teow with Chicken Eggs too if you are one of those that prefers it over the duck eggs.

I find the use of duck eggs to be more aromatic; and it brings out the taste of the Fried Kuey Teow. Although it was served with 2 pieces of reasonably size prawns; I find the lacks of cockles in the dish to be too little and too small. Yours truly just loves the Penang Fried Kuey Teow with lots of cockles as the cockles taste is the one that brings out the truly great flavour and taste of a real Penang Fried Kuey Teow.

This is then followed by the Signature Air Itam Assam Laksa, According to Ms Ang, her grandmother was the one; who was selling this same Assam Laksa in Air Itam in 1950 using a kandar (much like the nasi kandar man during that era) and a basket which are filled with the broth and condiments for the delicious laksa.

One of the thing that I notice in the Assam Laksa that are served at Angcle Peoh is that, there is a very generous portion of sardines fish meat in every bowl of laksa; which explains the strong fishy taste and coupled with the fragrantful aroma of the bunga kantan makes this broth unpretentious.

Our final dish is the Curry Mee; the curry here has a different texture in that, it is not the rich type of santan based curry which I prefer.

According to the chef, this version enables the customers to taste the spices in the curry; one has to appreciate the strong taste of the curry ingredient that was put into this curry broth.

For desserts, we were served the Air Batu Campur (ABC) which has the cream of corn, julienne grass jelly and red beans.

But the other dessert; which is the Cendol, was my favorite dessert at Angle Peoh as the cendol, has a firm texture and a very strong pandan taste (thru the use of fresh pandan leaves) and perfectly blended with the santan juice.

The cendol were inhouse made and was a definite a mildly sweet thirst soother after all the fiery spicy food dishes that we had earlier.

Judging from the large crowd during our visit; it seems that Klang folks have already discovered this Angcle Peoh at Bukit Tinggi Klang to satisfy their Penang Street food craving.

Puchong Setia Walk Big Spoon - A Spoonful of Food review by Best Restaurant

Nowadays the trend of eating is to eat a petite serving thereby enabling you to taste more delicacies. With that note, Best Restaurant To Eat was invited to preview Big Spoon at D-7-G, Block D, Setia Walk Persiaran Wawasan Puchong, Selangor.

The unique concept of Big Spoon is to serve an unique American Chinese fusion cuisine in a spoon, a real big spoon.

The decor of Big Spoon is one with a simple no-fuss design with a very simple menu - real fast food stuff.

Most of the dishes served at Big Spoon are quite similar in concept like a dim sum offering, where you can order these appetizer dishes.

We started the review with the Tomatoes in Sweet Osmanthus sauce - This is one of the most popular appetizers during summer. Chilled tomatoes are tossed with an inhouse made osmanthus glaze to give it a refreshing sweet and sour taste with a subtle fragrance of osmanthus to stimulate your appetite in a hot summer afternoon.

followed by the Oriental Salad - A Fresh, crisp, and cold combination of Iceberg Lettuce, cherry tomatoes and Fried Wonton Wrap. Drizzled with an oriental flavor salad dressing which consist of Soy sauce, Peanut butter, vinegar, sugar and black bean hot sauce.

and followed by Steam Dumplings which came with a special in house sauce. I find the dough to be a little too thick though.

After which we had the Pan Fried Dumplings - This version of dumpling is the Pan fried northeast china handmade Dumplings which is stuffed with chicken and napa cabbage. It goes well together with either the house special black bean hot sauce or the combination of vinegar and house special hot oil. 

the next appetizer we had is the Fried Spring Roll - This Spring roll is an iconic item on most menu of Chinese restaurant in America. The spring roll here at Big Spoon is served with an house special dipping sauce.

The last starter that we had was the Strawberry butter cream prawns (not on menu yet)- Big size wild catch of sea prawns from South China Sea is cooked to perfection to ensure the bouncy and firm texture of the prawn is maintained. Served with butter cream sauce which is sweet and savory and garnish with strawberry to add a sweet tinge of sourish of the strawberry to extract out the full flavors of the Prawns.

Chicken Cold Noodle - A cold noodle dish topped with shredded chicken meat.

For desserts, we had the Golden Pear Essence Dessert - A 3 hours-slow-cooked clear soup; boil with Pear, white fungus, wolfberries, and rock sugar. 

followed by the Crispy Taro Roll – which is a homemade hot dessert or snack stuffed with taro root paste which has no artificial coloring or flavoring while the two ends of roll are dipped in fragrant roasted sesame seed.

For me, the overall food that are served at Big Spoon is more for a snack meal or small eat where you savour each of these snacks. For people who likes to munch; Big Spoon meals will be a good choice for you.
