Zhia's Kitchen Restaurant@ Sunway Pyramid

Zhia's Kitchen Restaurant is located at Sunway Pyramid which serves home cook food. Mark recommended me this chinese restaurant when we tried to find somewhere dinner near Sunway.

Chrysanthemum Ginseng

Jasmine Green Tea

Crispy Chicken with Cereal and Rice

The chicken is really cripsy and full with cereal. It is just a normal home cook dishes but it tastes good and I like cereal~ =)
Thai Style Chicken with Rice

Thai Style Chicken is good in taste as well. Just like other thai style food, it is a bit of spicy + sweet + sour. As I like spicy and sour, this really suits my choice.

Overall, it is a typical chinese restaurant with home cook food. If you are away from your hometown just like me, you can go there to try their home cook food ^^ The ambiance of the restaurant is nice and the staffs are friendly as well. The price is reasonable where each person is around 10bucks and is considered quite cheap.

Brisik Restaurant@ Jaya One

Brisik Restaurant is located at Jaya One which serves Indonesian cuisine. Again, I know this place through After browsing the website of Brisik Restaurant, I found that the ambience is good and the website is completed with their menu and price which I really like it much~ ^^

It was Ee Mei's birthday and I suggested to go there for a try.

The menu is a little bit of 'old' and not really can attract me but luckily I did some research before going there. However, according to the person in charge, their menu is gonna changed soon(which is a good news =p).
The person in charge recommended us 'Satay Serai' as starter(which is not in the menu yet). As the name stated, the satay is 'cucuk' on the serai(citronella) instead of the normal satay stick. So, the satay has the fragrant of serai~ If I not mistaken, it costs RM12 with 6 satays.

As we are 8 people there and finally decided to order their 'hidangan khas' which is a set with starter, drink and dessert of the day. The person in charge recommended us 'Nasi Ambeng' and 'Nasi Tutug Oncom Betawi' with each serves for 4 people.

This is the starter of the set called 'Gado Gado'. As u can see, it comes with eggs, some vege and tofu with the special sauce.
This is the drink called 'Wedang Jahe'. It is just like ginger tea and I quite like it.'Nasi Ambeng' is served with white rice topped with fried chickens surrounded with condiments well known by javanies as food for blessing and to keep four friends closer. These are the four condiments which include fried bean thread noodles, vege,some sour things(not sure what is that) and fried mee.
Another set is 'Nasi Tutug Oncom Betawi'. The rice is special cuz it's not juz normal white rice but mixed with fried tempe and spice serves together with fried chicken, fried tofu, kang kung belacan and ikan masin goreng berlada.
The person in charge specially did the 'ayam penyet' for us instead of the normal fried chicken. 'Ayam Penyet' is also known as 'Smashed Chicken' or 'Flattened Chicken'. This is an authentic Indonesian dish of chicken that is deliberately smashed with a wooden mallet after deep-frying, apparently to loosen the meat from the bone.Finally, this is the dessert of the day. It is made up of papaya cubes and coconut milk. It is nice and tasty. ^^

A free milk tea from the person in charge and according to him, the tea leaf is imported and you almost can only find it in Brisik Restaurant. However, as I don't really drink milk tea so i don't really can find the difference..(so sorry =.=)
8 of us..Happy Birthday to Ee Mei~

Overall, I like the ambiance of this restaurant but I'll choose their other ala-cart menu next time like the most recommended 'Nasi Kampung Brisik' and 'Thai Fried Rice'. It is a good place for nice food and the price is reasonable.

The set of 'Nasi Ambeng' costs RM111 and set of 'Nasi Tutug Oncom Betawi' costs RM99 which come together with starter, drinks and dessert.

Schokolart@ Solaris Mont Kiara

Schokolart, is a place for typical chocoholics~ I know this place through where there is a promotion for members to get a discount on its Choc-Dreams Buffet.

The buffet is only available on Saturday and Sunday from 3pm to 6pm. It is RM35+ per pax but for the BestFoodJuction members, we can actually get it at RM25+ per pax through e-reservation. Since I am a member and is a dessert lover, I'd like to give it a try =)

As I was expecting I could actually try every kind of chocolate in this buffet but to my surprise, the Choc-Dreams Buffet is only entitled to its special 5 feet tall chocolate fountain, drinks and one piece of cake for each pax. It's kinda disappointed for us.

Very sad that they are not included in the buffet.. =(

For drinks, the staff recommended us Soul-Mate and Temptation. Soul-Mate is Schokolart's signature blend - dark chocolate ice-cream blended with crunchy peanut-butter and topped with whipped cream. I love this drinks and you must try it!

On the other hand, Temptation is Schokolart signature Hot Choc made with 62% Cacao dark chocolates served with home-made cinnamon marshmallow. I don't really like this hot chocolate drinks but it's good to have a try.

And of course not forgetting the giant 5ft chocolate fountain. I'd say that the choices are really really too less... There are only bread sticks, egg rolls, soft candy, fruits and chocolate topping. Although it is a buffet, we found it not really worth as firstly the choices are too less and secondly you don't really can eat much chocolate at one time. We stop eating after 3 or 4 rounds.
After the chocolate fountain, we are ready to taste the cake. As we asked the staff to bring us the most popular and recommended one, he finally chose an original chocolate cake and a piece of cheese cake.
Too pity that I do not eat cheese (I know it's weird =p) and my friend Wei Huang is too full to finish the cheese cake alone so we decided to ask the staff to change another one. Ebony & Ivory white choc mousse with coffee & toffee apple was then being served =) Both of the cake are nice but it's just we are too full with chocolate and this made us can't really enjoy it.
After we finished the buffet, we are given Schokolart Addict Card for free where we can enjoy a 10% discount on each of the subsequent visit. Overall, the ambiance there is quite good and I did enjoy tasting chocolate. However, I'd suggest to go for their ala cart menu choice next time rather than the buffet.
