Sangkaya Bukit Bintang Jalan Alor Joining The Durian Craze - Durian Cendol - The King Of Chendol

This year 2016, is gonna be a great Durian year for me; as we gotten the chance to taste Durian the King of Fruits not only on its whole but in many variations of desserts. Today, we head down to Sangkaya which is famed for its coconut ice-cream at its flagship store located at 79, Jalan Alor, Bukit Bintang, 50200 Kuala Lumpur, to taste out a new dessert offering.

As many have known one of the hottest talks about in town was a Malaysian Dessert somewhere in early May 2016; was the Durian Cendol in Shah Alam. Now Sangkaya which also serves its version of the famous Malaysian cendol; is also jumping on this bandwagon with their offering.

At Sangkaya, the main difference for the cendol is there is no Santan that is added into the cendol; in place of that is the coconut ice-cream which has a much smoother texture and taste and also with shredded coconut strip which exudes out a more natural coconut taste.

What was set on top of the Cendol Durian (RM13.50) is the species that has a bitter taste and when intertwined with the cool coconut ice cream and the other condiment (Cendol, Corn, Grass Jelly, Red Beans) was perfectly paired. If you love to have an additional durian, you can add it at RM3.50 per piece.

 This King of Chendol is only available at the Jalan Alor outlet (opening time 5 to 1 am daily) and there is a limited daily supply, so it is best to go early to avoid disappointment to eat this dessert.

If Durian is not your cup of tea, you can also try out the original Sangkaya Chendol (RM10.50). All the condiments in this dessert are of premium quality; for example, the corn that is used are the full corn, not the creamy corn, while there are whole roasted peanuts, fresh coconut flesh, Chendol, Grass Jelly and the all important Coconut ice cream (which replaces the Santan) topped with roasted coconut flakes.

For me; One must try the Signature Sangkaya Coconut ice cream (RM10.50) when going to Sangkaya which has a creamy texture . Served on a one-half of the coconut shell, you get 4 full scoops of the coconut ice cream layered with fresh coconut flesh and you can have a choice of 3 toppings (coconut flakes, roasted peanuts, corn flake, cereal, sweet corn, kidney beans) to goes with your ice-cream. There will also be an offering of seasonal extra topping like raisin during the Ramadan season for you to choose from.

For some of you which like to explore on other flavours; can order the Signature Sangkaya Ice-Cream; where you can choose the other flavours like the " Cha Yen" , "Teh IJO" or the "Chokoko" flavour besides their popular Original Coconut Flavour.

There are other drinks that you can order at Sangkaya namely the Coconut Coffee series (from RM6.50 to RM7.30)  like the CoLatte, CoCinno, CoBlack, CoBlack Jelly for those that loves a taste of coffee with is blended with coconut water and/or coconut milk.

And for others that prefer a cold drinks can also order their Shakes series, which has the Original Coconut Shake (RM9.40), Chai Yen Coconut Shake, Teh Ijo Coconut Shake or the Chokoko Coconut Shake. Sangkaya is currently running an on-going promotion which is for the order of any 2 Shakes at RM15.00.

The inspiration behind the name Le Pont (French for ‘The Bridge’) comes from the desire to capture the vision of a unique space where people can come together and forge new friendships and the aspiration to create a food & beverage concept where food and drink connect seamlessly.

Central to the entire menu is the Coffee Origin Platter (RM18.90) which is a captivating three-in-one serving style of the Himalaya Supersonic blend. As Head of Coffee David Leong quips; to enjoy this coffee platter we start off with the filtered brew which exudes out only the pure and natural taste of this highly sought after bean from El Salvador; Next we tasted a coffee mocktail which was sweeten by the blue berry syrup with a tinge of lemon. Finally; is to taste the aromatic espresso brewed with textured milk which enhances the full aroma of the special blend.

To paired with this special coffee brew, Pastry Chef Padzli has specially created a delectable short crust pastry baked with coffee mix from the Himalaya SuperSonic beans. We were very impressed by the after taste of the soft chilled brulee like texture of the filling. The distinctive aroma of the coffee taste lingers in our mouth long after we have eaten the pastry. Diners can savour as a single slice of this Coffee Tart at RM12.90 or the whole tarts at RM43.90.

Next on the table was the Le Pomme (Warm Apple Tart with Vanilla Ice Cream) RM15.90. We love the flaky, fluffy texture and the buttery taste of the tart which has a nice crisp when bitten into it; while the thinly sliced apples which was cooked; has a nice texture coupled with the soft vanilla ice cream was a real treat to tantalized our sweet tooth.

This is then followed by the Le Noisette (Crunchy Hazelnut and Chocolate Bar with Mascaporne Cream) RM 17.90. The slight crunch when you cut out the pastry which has a rich hazelnut taste was nicely paired with the Mascaporne Cream and served with strawberries at the sides to give you a blend of a slight sourish sweet taste.

Next is the Peach Melba (RM16.90). This dessert is more like a parfait in which you can taste the different texture as you dig into this special serving glass. The middle section which has soft sorbet like texture has a tinge of tangy taste from the peach while after a few scoop, you will discover the taste of the light crunch of the Almond crumble.

The second last dessert on the table is the Apple Crumble Tart (RM10.90). As with the earlier Apple Tart, it is the same cut apples which is served on a bed of frangipane and topped with Almond Crumble.  There is a hint of light cinnamon taste in the filling.

This is a baked short crust pastry filled with mixed nuts and soft caramel that is topped with chocolate mousse; which has a velvety texture and a generous spread of mixed nut at the bottom of the chocolate mousse making is an enticing taste to nuts lovers with a sweet taste.

Damansara Perdana Food: Fork D World Bistro Cafe Restaurant - Porkilicious Meal To Die For

We have tasted many restaurant that specializes in Pork dishes, but at Fork D World located at 
D2-G-3A, Ritze Perdana 1 Commercial Lot, Jalan PJU 8/2, Damansara Perdana Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, pork meat dishes takes a new twist and dimension to will tantalize your taste-buds.

The decor of the cafe restaurant is one of a simple and straight forward; no frills setup but what excites us is the way the dishes are cooked using the pork meat especially the Chinese style roast pork and pork bacon as you read this blog posts.

Pork is one of yours truly favourite as this last minute invitation was accepted purely to taste one of the very unique and special dish which is the Awesome Bacon Lou Sang (RM55.00+). We have done  numerous number of Lou Sang review this time around and the thought of having a pork inspired Lou Sang got us to accept this very last minute invitation with no regrets.

Not content to use the normal ingredient in setting up this Lou Sang dish; the core ingredients are Streaky Bacon, Crispy Fried Pig Skin, Strips of Back Bacon, with Guava, Fried Yam, peeled Mandarin oranges and Pomelo. The in-house blended plum sauce has been specially fine tuned with Fried Bacon Bits to add an extraordinary porky flavour to this Lou Sang. The end result is that we had finished the entire Lou Sang to the last bit; a testament of how delicious this was. This is the first time we had the opportunity to taste a Bacon Lou Sang.

After the explosive Lou Sang, we had an appetizers, which is aptly named as Bacon Bombs (8 pieces) (RM18.00). technically when you bite into this Bomb; the enclosed cheese will explode in your mouth. For fans of cheese and pork; this appetizers really is a must not miss dish for you. The Mozarella cheese is wrapped around the crusty pastry within the bacon which is then deep fried to a crisp and topped with sprinkles of brown sugar.

After that, we had the Carbonara (RM22.00). This is a classic farmhouse carbonara sauce with Bacon and topped with a raw egg yolk. Stirred up the egg yolk and it will gel to form a rich creamy texture and aroma to the pasta of your choice.

The next pasta dish is a very addictive and a very sinful dish for those cholesterol watcher. This is the Siew Yoke / Roast Pork Fried Pasta (RM22.00). Using Olive oil and a mixture with the pork fats from the frying of the Roast Pork which is then sauteed with garlic and chili padi, it infuses a very aromatic tinge of spicy porky flavours to this simple looking but mouth watering pasta dish.

For the mains; we had the Grilled Australian Lamb Loin (RM35.00). The Aussie Loin meat which is marinated with a secret recipe of more than 20 years are grilled to a nice juicy charred and a taste which reminiscent the sugary Char Siew flavour. Served with a side of roasted vegetable, mini potatoes  and topped with a piece of fried bacon.

At Fork D World; there also serves a number of in-house made 9 inch pizza. We had the opportunity to taste 2 of it; which the first one is the Sambal Shrimp Pizza (RM22.00). The dough are in-house made and have a fine texture which is not too thick and still retains a nice doughy crunch. This pizza is then topped with shrimp, bacon chips, cheese and a special sambal which is not overly spicy tomato based sauce.

The second pizza which we had; is the savoury Roast Pork Pizza (RM22.00); this is another first, never before had we tasted a Roast Pork Pizza; but the verdict is you really have to go for a second piece and if possible a third piece or better still just order one whole pizza just for yourself.

The last dish before dessert is a new kid on the block daily specials (not on menu) which is the Porky Bacon Lasagna. If Garfield has tasted this lasagna, I bet he will jump to the roof; as the lasagna was made with bacon chips in a special in-house made bolognese sauce and topped with a sinfully rich layer of cheese.

Desserts from Fork D World Cafe are all in-house made; Here the desserts are not too sweet and just nice for our taste. The first dessert is the Durian Egg Pudding (RM8.00+); the pudding has a fine soft texture and a strong aroma of the durian. Too bad, I can't get another helping as we have eaten all there is.

Next we had the Chocolate Brownie (RM12+) - 2 portion in picture. The chocolate brownie are usually on a non permanent basis. For today it was made with cream cheese and are alternate with chocolate mint, peanuts with M&M and chocolate orange to gives the customers a varied choice of the day.

After that is the Dessert Waffle (RM10.00+) - 2 portion in picture. The waffles are American style which has a crisp texture as compared to the Belgian type which normally has a firmer texture. This waffles is served with a scoop of ice-cream and drizzle with salted caramel.

The last dessert that we had is the Apple Crumble (RM10+) - 2 portion in picture. Served with a scoop of ice-cream.

As the saying goes what is nice is not healthy but what is healthy is not nice. You have to make that decision. For pork meat lovers, you can really feast here on those cheat day to enjoy this sinful but scrumptious dishes that are served here.

And for those that really like to taste the Awesome Bacon Lou Sang, you better hurry up as it is served from now till the 15th day of Chinese New Year. Please take note that the restaurant is closed from 7th Feb 2016 to 14th Feb 2016. So you better hurry up if you really want to taste this special Lou Sang.

Madame Waffle @Mid Valley - A dessert haven in Kuala Lumpur

If dessert is your cup of tea; you would love this review as all that we ate at this review is just desserts with a special twist of using waffles as the key ingredient. +BestRestaurant ToEat  was invited to preview this special Waffle dessert at Madame Waffle located at T045, Level 3 Mezzanine, Mid Valley Megamall, Mid Valley City, Kuala Lumpur.

The decor is pretty simple Japanese style setup; with no frills as what is important is the food that are served here. Marrying the artisan Belgian with the finest quality Japanese ingredients; each waffle are hand-made and are freshly ala-minute baked on site on a daily basis. To complement the waffles, Madame Waffle also serves specialty house blended coffee which is roasted by its award winning Master Barista.

Serving an array of Classic Waffle to Specialty Waffles; you would be spoilt for choice. The waffle has a slightly toasted flavor, from batter coming into direct contact with the hot iron and gives it a crisp crust with soft, moist interior bread type texture.

Our review started with the Banana Nutella (RM 18.50). We love the texture of the waffle, and married with the bananas and chocolate gelatos it somehow remind us of the banana split; but with the additional waffles to goes with it, the three blended well with each other. 

Followed by the Kafu Waffles series (which is a waffle in a cup) which the first one, that we tasted was the Chocomatte (RM12.00). Fully laden; with the Ferrero Roche with a chocolate gelato. A real delight for fans of everything Chocolate.

The next Waffle in a cup is the Matcha Waffle Parfait; this one is really for the matcha fan. With a couple of mochi at the bottom of the cup; it gives a chewy feel to this dessert. 

the final Kafu Waffles that we tasted is the Happy Tiramisu (RM12.00); we loves the silky texture of the tiramisu which blended extremely well with the choco powder and waffles.

 Madame Signature (RM17.00) is another delight for fans of green tea, as you will be totally immerse with the matcha taste throughout this dessert.

As with our earlier Kafu waffles which is the Happy Tiramisu, the Tiramisu Waffle (Rm 11.00)  under the Premium Waffle have quite similar taste and this waffle is one of the best seller at Madame Waffle. 

I love the next one which is the Seasalt Dark Chocolate Chunk (RM 10.50). The slightly salted dark chocolate was a refreshing change to the sweeter desserts that we had earlier. With a strong chocolate spread on the waffles and eaten with the strawberry which has a sourish taste, it was a very interesting taste to savour.

For a real treat you can opt for the Madame Signature Deluxe RM 30.00. It comes with 2 pieces of waffle; the first is the original waffle with a Matcha Gelato on a bed of freshly cut banana while the second waffle is a matcha flavoured with a vanilla Gelato bedded with slice of strawberries. 

We had a specialty drinks from Madame Waffles which is Ice Belgian Chocolate RM 12.50. A wholly chocolatey delight.

Overall, for dessert lovers especially waffles, Madame Waffle will definitely be a good choice for you to savour all the different types of waffles flavoured with your favourite condiments.
