For those of you staying in Cheras; you need not travel all the way to downtown Kuala Lumpur to taste some of the special price wine collection that is available from CINCIN. At CINCIN if you are a newbie to wine appreciation, you can seek the assistance of their staff to recommend it to you.

We were told that you can keep your unfinished wine at CINCIN which is marked by a special cork.

We were there to celebrate my wedding anniversary with a full course dinner with wine pairing starting with the Caesar Salad which is topped with Smoked Salmon and paired with a glass of Viognier and Arinto (2015).

Next; our soup for the evening is a Clear Soup with Truffle Oil. Cooked with a combination of different mushroom which includes the Shitake mushroom, and infused with a strong aroma of the truffle oil when it arrives at our table. A simple start to our dinner.

After the soup; we were served an appetizer which is Grilled Portobello With Bacon and Cheese. The melted cheese encapsulate with the fried bacon and marries with the strong taste of the grilled porto bello mushroom.

For the main course: I ordered the Grill Lamb Rack with Red Wine Rosemary Sauce and paired with a glass of Syrah, Tempranillo, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon (2015). It is a special concoction of the various blend of wine that has a nice aftertaste in the mouth especially when it was drunk after a bite size of the grilled lamb meat.

As for my other half, she was served the Poach Salmon With a White Wine Broth which was paired with Viognier and Arinto (2015). Compare to the Lamb Rack that I had, this dish has a more subtle and clear taste. You can enjoy the natural taste of the slightly salty mushroom broth which brings out the flavours of the wine.

For desserts, I had the Green Tea Creme Brulee, which was elaborately decorated with blossoms of flowers.

While my other half had the Ballerina, which is a meringue ball with gelato-like ice cream which has a slightly vinegarette taste of the lime.  Loves this refreshing dessert to end a memorable anniversary dinner.

Cheras Dim Sum: Moon Palace Cheras Chinese Restaurant Cheras Sentral

Dim Sum is one of my favourite food, especially for breakfast or lunch. Going to one's favourite Chinese restaurant, sipping tea and feasting on the innumerable assortment of delicacies that make up Chinese Dim Sum? +BestRestaurant ToEat was invited to have a review of the Moon Palace Cheras Chinese Restaurant located at Unit No. 700-3F-1, 2, 3 & 7, Level 3, Cheras Sentral Shopping Mall (formerly known as Phoenix Plaza Cheras), Jalan Cheras, 56000 Kuala Lumpur.

Headed by Master Chef Loong; a Dim Sum specialist for more than 30 years; he has sprung out a number of new Dim Sum dishes to entice your taste buds. According to the chef, he strongly believes in innovating new Dim Sum dishes that will give diners more choices and different texture of Dim Sum, which not only taste good but looks good as well.

Starting off the review was the 4 seasonal special Dim Sum; the first of which is the Steamed Superior Fish Maw & Dried Seafood Rolled With Bamboo Pith (RM13.57). According to the Chef; top, superior ingredient is use to prepare this Dim Sum, with a special broth that was kept warm with the special bowl used to serve this Dim Sum.

The second Dim Sum under this new dish is the Steamed Spinach Rice Roll With Shrimp (RM 7.20). The spinach rice roll has a silky soft texture which has a crunchy texture prawns sandwiched in the roll and married with a light Soya Sauce. 

The third Dim Sum is the Steamed Charcoal Salted Egg Lava Bun (RM 6.89); We are sure that you would have eaten similar type of bun, but here the main different is the use of a charcoal bun, which has a special soft feel to the bun. 

The fourth and final Dim Sum is the Golden Crispy Apple Salad Prawns (RM 9.33); you would probably have tasted many Fried Salad Prawn Dumpling elsewhere but at Moon Palace, an apple based sauce is added in place of mayonnaise and again, this exudes out a different taste and perspective to this otherwise common Dim Sum.

Of course, Moon Palace Chinese Restaurant also has some of the traditional Dim Sum which has been given a slight twist and decor. We start off with the Steamed Dim Sum section which is the Steamed Pork Dumpling With Fish Roe (RM6.89).

One of the Dim Sum that I like to eat is the Chicken Feet. At Moon Palace, a new twist emerged as the Phoenix Feet is steamed with Egg Plant and Black Pepper (RM 6.15).

Next on; is a very eye pleasing Dim Sum which is the Steamed Golden Fish Prawn Dumpling (RM7.42). On reaching to the table, there is a real wow to see this beautifully decorated Dim Sum. It took awhile of glazing it before we taste it. 

After that, we tried the Signature Steamed Sesame Lotus Bun (RM 6.89).

For the Baked and Fried section; we had 5 different Dim Sum; the first of which is the Vietnamese Pan Fried Shrimp Roll With Mango (RM 9.01). Under this section; again the Chef offers their fare with some artistry put into each of this dish.

This is followed by the Deep Fried Avocado With Custard (RM 7.95). Wrap like a bird-nest; the filling consist of the custard with a piece of Avocado and deep fried to a crisp.

After that, we were served the Stir-Fried Radish Cake with Homemade XO sauce (RM 7.95). This dish was my son favourite, we like the texture of the radish with all the condiments used to stir fried it to the right charred. One of the extras; was the use of Chinese Sausage that gives it a more porky flavour; it was so delicious we had to order another plate.

followed by the Yam Bun (RM 6.89).

and lastly under this section is the Deep Fried Sweet Potato Roll (RM 6.89).

The next section that we tried is the BBQ, Rice, Noodle section; and under this section is where you can order the Roast Pork Belly (Siew Yok) and the BBQ Pork (Cha Siew). We truly like this dish as the Roast Pork Belly skin texture was crispy and crunchy while the meat has a very nice soft firm texture. 

The BBQ pork on the other hand; had a good balance of sticky caramel-charred on the outside while a succulent and tender meat on the inside with the right portion of fats.

We end our meal with the dessert section; here we were offered 2 desserts which the first is the Home Made Cotton Cake (RM6.15). We like the taste of this cake, as the texture was soft while the sweetness level was just nice. Coated with sprinkles of roasted coconut flakes it enhances the cake flavours with some slight coconut taste.

And the last dessert is the Crystal Sweet Potato Roll (RM6.15). Looks very much like a transparent marble.

At Moon Palace Chinese Restaurant there is a special Sunday and School Holiday Section i.e. the Dim Sum under this category are not served on other days. One of the special in this section that we tasted is the Crispy BBQ Pork Bun (RM 7.21). This bun is very popular in Hong Kong and there is a number of Dim Sum Restaurant mostly originating from Hong Kong which is already serving this bun. We like the crust of this bun which has a strong buttery taste and BBQ pork filling.

With more than 60 different type of Dim Sum served at Moon Palace Cheras Chinese Restaurant that will not only touch your heart(Dim Sum) but also your tummy and eyes as well.

Cheras Food: Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe Ikon Connaught - Your Japanese Neighbourhood Bakery Review

Japanese have perfected the fine art in terms of creating nice bakery and pastries; as can be seen by the many Japanese inspired bakery cum restaurant in the Klang Valley. With that +BestRestaurant ToEat was invited to taste out one of the latest bakery produce from Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe located at G-08, IKON Connaught, Jalan Cerdas, Taman Connaught, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur

What makes Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe different is the type of flour that is used to prepare the dough? The flour that is used at Haru Bakery is the High Protein Flour which are imported from Japan.

Using the right technique to prepare the bread dough will determine the fluffiness, soft and moist texture of each buns. There are many flavors of bun that are served at Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe and the following are the one that we tasted.

The first is the Amazing Chestnut Bun (RM3.80).  For chestnut fans, you will find the filling very nutty. Nice to be eaten with a cup of coffee.

Next is the Butter Croissant (RM 3.80). For those that love their croissant to be less buttery, you will find this just nice for you. It has that crisp layers and fluffiness texture.

Caramelised Apple Bun (RM 3.40). Balance of sweetness of caramelized apple filling with the soft sweet bun texture. 

The above is the Cranberry Cheese Bun (RM3.60). 

Fruity Red Bean Banana. This bun is banana flavoured with a red bean paste filling. 

Mexico Cheese Bun. This is a fusion of the popular Mexico bun but with a topping of walnut and almond chips.

The above bun is called the Mini Pizza (RM 5.90). Why this bun is called the mini pizza is because the fillings of this bun are tomatoes, sausages, tomato sauce, mozzarella cheese and topped with a sliced cheese are all the ingredient that made up a pizza.

Spring Lady (RM 3.80) has spring onions, cheese, mayonnaise and ham as its filling.

Japanese Curry Onigiri (RM 3.40). A fusion bun which consists of bonito flakes, mayonnaise and seaweed on top of the bun with a Japanese curry sauce.

For non bun lovers or you would like a more savoury meals at Haru Japanese Bakery Cafe, you can try out the Squid Ink Pasta (RM16.80). This pasta has a light touch of squid ink although I would have prefered a stronger dose of squid ink for this dish.

The other pasta which we tasted was the Wafu Mentai Spaghetti (RM14.80). Loves the ebiko topping on the light wafu sauce. 

For sweet tooth fans, the Go Banana (RM 15.50) dessert is your dream dessert.  Served on a special Haraju Toast topped with slices of cut bananas, a scoop of ice-cream and Chantilly cream drizzled with chocolate sauce.

While the Mary Berry (RM 18.50) is topped with mixed berries, Chantilly cream, vanilla ice cream plus some sweet mixed berries and raspberry sauce was the perfect end to our food review.
