Fork & Spoon, Dataran Sunway

I was at CIP's Hari Raya open house recently at Sime Darby Convention Centre that I meet Jaee and Li Vooi. We somehow got introduced by my good friend, Johan Nazir and end up talking about food and foodblogging rather discussing about what is the next ICT invention that can make money. After talking to Jaee, I was invited to visit Jaee's working place, a cafe by the name Fork & Spoon. It was also by chance that Fork & Spoon Cafe is just near by my place located at Kota Damansara, so Sunny and myself decided to visit this cafe that night.

When we arrived at the cafe, we notice that the cafe offers a wide range of food such as nyonya food, hawker food, western, also delicious desserts and also roti bakar.

We were served with iced cold honey lemon drink which is a thrist relieve and refreshing drink. We like it so much, not to sweet but ends with a honey lemony taste.

Then came the Malaysian Prawn noodle "Hae Mee" as well mentioned by Carol. Their Prawn noodle consist of few medium size prawns and pork ribs. The stock was really good and tasty, don't taste much of MSG.

The flow keep coming, next it was the huge rendang chicken. Oh! I love the way they had their rendang chicken cooked, real spot on, just the way I like, so ethnic, one bite and you know it is cooked by a malay chef. Delicious.

Jaee came and told us that the main dishes will be coming and as us to relax a while and have some nibble of ikan bilis. This ikan bilis dish according to Jaee, is s dish create for drinkers as it goes well with beer and liquor. It is really good, the ikan bilis is so crunchy and coated with caramel, makes it so marvellous. Yes I do agree that this dish is a good company of snack for people who are drinking and also having a good dinner chat. A thumbs up!

Here comes or main dishes, gosh what a great feast for the two of person. We were a real eater that night, loading fofd and more food. The mixed vegetable was absolutely good, well stir fried. The celery, greenpea, long bean and baby sweetcorn were gorgeous, chrunchy and not over cooked at all.

Oh! we were serve with two new dishes that is going to be launch here in November, this one is "Kum Kong Kwat" a pork rib dish which taste very unique, deep fried short ribs coated with a sweet and lime taste sauce. A taste that somehow will stay in your mind.

The other new dish is "Yut Sek Har" Vietnamese Style Prawn is also a real winner. The prawns were very fresh and the taste of the sauce infused into the meat.

We ended our delicious and satisfied dinner with onde-onde, a delicious dessert mixture make from glutinous and tapioca flour, with embedded palm sugar and coated with grated coconut.

Hua Nam Coffeeshop, New Town , Ipoh

Hua Nam Coffeeshop in new town ipoh has been around for many years now and still churning lots of delicious hawker food. I am definately one who will never miss visiting this shop for my afternoon tea. I will always go for the "Law Mee" and always make sure the stall serve them in Penang style. "Law Mee" is noodle dish serve in a dark sauce and comes with topping such as shreeded chicken, sliced prawns, deep fried onions and some 'sambal" chilli paste. It is nothing new as you can get this similat dish in Kuala Lumpur and even in Petaling jaya. So what make this particular dish so uniqe? Well, got to say I was introduce to this dish by my cousin Jennie, She taught me how to eat this dish and that makes the dish so unique and so delicious. This stall serve pickle crushed garlic. What you have to do is just add those pickled crushed garlic into your "Law Mee" noodle and mix them into the dish evenly. OMG! now you will be able to taste such a unique taste and flavour of this "Law Mee". A must try if you are in Ipoh!

Another delicious noodle that you can enjoy at this coffeeshop is the Curry Noodle. So delicious and I hardly can describe thwem to you. I think you need to try yourself and from my pictures, they tell!!

Rojak is also something that need to try here. What makes this rojak dish so delicious...of course is the rojak sauce. I also love the the prawn crackers serve on the rojak. So crunchy and so tasty when eaten with the rojak sauce. And those crushed peanuts toppings really adds the flavour of this rojak. This rojak is really something that i would crave for...... so to say, something to die! Same goes with their Sotong have a try and let me know later!

Hokkien "Har Mee" is also a winner here. A noodle dish that comes with slice pork and shrimps and comes with prawns soup. Lovely!
