Durian Season At Inside Scoop - Presenting King Of All Waffles - Damansara Jaya

Durian season is here and especially the craze on the Musang King this season. We had the opportunity to taste; first hand this King Of All Waffles at Inside Scoop, Damansara Jaya branch tonight.

A special collaboration of 2 popular brand names namely Inside Scoop which is famed for its smooth creamy made from scratch ice cream and the Durian King TTDI for the supply of fragrant and top quality Durian; to create a unique one of its kind King Of All Waffles for us to savour in.

The Musang King Durian is paired with the Valrhona Chocolate ice-cream for a perfect combination as its ingredient does not overpower each of its' character. The Valrhona Chocolate flavour was chosen for its strong flavour as it exudes out a special taste when eaten with the aromatic and naturally sweet flavour of the creamy Musang King.

Served with a set of crispy Butter Milk Waffles; the light texture of the waffles was just right to absorb the ice cream which intertwined with the lustrous Yellow Durian flesh making each scoop a delight which has its' after taste still lingering; hours after that.

If you yearn for this special one of the kind waffles dessert, you better hurry to Inside Scoop as this King Of All Waffles is only available at selected Inside Scoop outlet and only available for 3 days starting from 22nd June 2016.

However, if you miss King Of All Waffles, don't despair as Inside Scoop has also its' very own Durian Ice Cream which we had a chance to taste it too. We find the taste and the creaminess of this flavour; up to mark as its Durian based was the D24 species which has a strong character by itself.

New Peng Wah Restaurant @Damansara Jaya Petaling Jaya - Authentic Village Style Home Cook Dishes

For those of you that stay in or near Damansara Jaya, you would probably notice the New Peng Wah Chinese Restaurant located at Lot 15 & 17 , Jalan SS 22/19 Damansara Jaya 47400 Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, just behind the Atria Shopping Gallery.

New Peng Wah Restaurant has been around this neighbourhood for the past 3 years and one of the very few Chinese Restaurant that serves authentic village style home cook dishes. +BestRestaurant ToEat got the invitation to taste these special signature dishes which are only available at this restaurant.

The setup is very simple and minimal, no fancy decor and furniture to line up the restaurant to impress you but what is more important is the food that is served at this restaurant.

Our review started off with Signature Lala Soup (Small Serving RM16.00). This is a very different dish from the one that we normally eaten at other restaurant. The main difference is in the soup broth which is flavoured with Tong Kui and wolfberries. Love the herbal taste and the aroma of the wine. Here the Lala is of a special species which is from the Philippines; has a bouncy and chewy texture. Best eaten with white rice especially with the flavourful soup.

For those familiar or regular customers, one of their favourite dishes that is ordered is the Signature Deep Fried Ma Yau Fish Senangin (RM6.00 per 100gm). This fish is deep fried to a nice crisp and with the accompanied soya sauce was a nice match to a simple dish.

Next on, is a another village style dish; which is the Signature Potato Fried Pork (Large - RM 25.00). The potatoes are thinly sliced and fried together with the strips of pork. We like the texture of the slice potatoes and with the sauce that was used to stir fried this dish. Another one of the dish that are good to be eaten with white rice

The second fish dish that we had is the Stew Grouper Fish Head (Large - RM48.00). The fish head are cut to biteable sizes. Using garlic, old ginger, red chillies, green chillies, capsicum and soya sauce; the flavours of this mixture was delicious. We can't help ourselves to more orders of white rice to goes with this tasty dish although it was a little tad of saltiness - you can pre-empt the captain when you order this dish to cut down on the level of saltiness of this dish.

This is another dish which is difficult if not impossible to get from other restaurant; as this is very Temerloh village style. It is called the Homestyle Claypot Brinjal (Large - RM28.00). The brinjal are pre boiled and mashed to a paste. It is then cooked with minced pork and prawns in a belacan paste. This is a dish when you start eating; will be difficult to stop. Love the taste of this dish.

The next dish is a chicken based dish which is named as the Claypot Hua Teow Wine Chicken. The strong aroma of the Hua Teow wine was very nice and make this dish very tasty. Served on a claypot the gravy was slurped up to the last drop. 

The last dish for the night is the Fried Pork With Nyonya Sauce. A very interesting dish. According to the manager, you can ordered this nyonya sauce with steamed fish or chicken. Well, you guessed it; we really need to order another white rice to go with this addicted sauce.

If you love village style home cooked meal as much as we do, New Peng Wah at Damansara Jaya Petaling Jaya will definitely not disappoint you.

This WAY Modern Chinois @Clearwater Damansara Heights has a very distinctive first impression as the entrance to the restaurant is via a lift door access. A very intrigued way as you will not guess that the restaurant is just behind the door of a lift.

The decor is a dimly lit and exudes an elegant, comfortable and posh European dining ambiance unlike most other Chinese restaurant which are usually brightly lit.

Our review is to taste out the new menu Dim Sum menu which the first is the in-house made specialty i.e. Skinless” Shang Hai Soup Dumpling (RM 6.00 per piece). It is a one of a kind Xiao Long Bao that we have tasted. The skinless texture is crafted out using molecular cooking method that uses chemistry reaction to create the skinless texture of this Xiao Long Bao. Eaten as one spoonful, your first experience is the bursting of the flavourful broth which are intertwined with the ginger vinegar taste to gives you an explosive feel.

The next dim sum is the Truffle Crab Soup Dumpling (RM 14.00 for 4 pcs). Taking it in one mouthful you get the intense earthy aroma of the truffle and the comforting warmth of the enclosed fragrant broth.

After the Xiao Long Bao, we had a fried Dim Sum which is the Fish and Chips (RM 16.00 for 3 pcs). It has a golden brown fluffy crisp skin with a filling of a batter of mashed potatoes and a mixture of cod fish paste and top with a special vinegar powder to gives it a slight sourish taste.

This is then followed by a steam Dim Sum which is the Crab Roe Dumpling (RM 19.00 for 3 pcs) is wrapped in a pumpkin flavoured and artistically plated as the dumpling is topped with special net design which made the dumpling very appealing to the eyes.

Another Dim Sum specialty dish is the Way’s Lotus Leaf Steamed Sticky Rice with Duck (RM 10.00 for 2 pcs). Normally the sticky rice is paired with Chicken, much like the Loh Mai Kai, but the chef choose to add one of WAY Modern Chinois @Clearwater Damansara Heights signature delicacies which is the aromatic Roast Duck as the core ingredients and paired with mixture of mushrooms, carrots, salted egg and water chestnut into the glutinous rice.

Another unique Dim Sum is the Sticky Rice Lamb Siew Mai (RM 19.00 for 3 pcs). The lamb meat are chopped and shape into solid meat ball shape. It has a strong gamey taste of the lamb and this would be a favourite for lamb lovers.

The next Dim Sum is another creation by the Chef Ken, which is the Wok Fried Cheong Fun with Original Spice Paste (RM 10.00). Normally you would eat the Steam Chee Cheong Fun; but here the Cheong Fun are pan fried with a special in-house dried shrimp paste which has a very tantalizing spicy taste;

Next is The Crab Claw Dumpling (RM 15.00 for 3 pcs).

Even the plain Char Siew Pau have an added fusion which is the addition of coriander which are finely chopped and sprinkle of the bun. This Coriander Char Siew Bun (RM 9.00 for 2 pcs) filling too have been added with some additional finely chopped coriander stalk to make it a little more aromatic.

The next dim sum served is the Crispy Bean Curd Skin Roll (RM 17.00 for 3 pcs).

followed by the Prawn Dumpling with X.O (RM 16.00 for 3 pcs) - a very spicy steam dumpling with succulent and bouncy shrimp.

and lastly the Crispy Dumpling with Wasabi Mayo (RM 15.00) which the wasabi infused sauce are seated below the dumpling to gives you a special punch which marries perfectly to the crispy skin of the dumplings.

This Pan Baked Beans, Eggs & Bacon Bits is served with braised re-fried beans in pomodoro sauce, grilled bacon bits topped with eggs and fontina cheese, and served with 2 pieces of Toast. The pomodoro sauce has a smoky taste which goes well with the freshly toasted bread.
