I had been noticing this place everytime I use the Bukit Baru way to town in Melaka, finally last weekend I had a chance to check it out. I got there at 7.45pm and it was so crowded I had to wait about 10-15 mins to get a place to seat. They offered bak kut teh here in 2 choices, one is pork and the other is beef.

I ordered the beef and waited for about 25-30 mins as they shop is quite laid back… well it fact its not a shop but a house on the main road which had converted it’s porch into a makan place. I also noticed there’s 1 table that’s having a steamboat with peppery bak kut teh soup with beef, etc.

I ordered a can of beer for my wait at RM7.50 and the family that’s running the place was kind enough to offered me the day’s papers for the wait.

Finally my beef bak kut teh came, its a well portioned claypot of beef, beef internals, beef balls with foo chuk and cabbage served with a bowl of rice. The rice is a sticky, but the beef bak kut teh was good! Its not the usual bak kut teh soup as I expected. Its actually this thick and peppery soup with all the ingredents inside.

The soup is peppery hot but very very good and as I was eating, I was sweating hot and nose was running. The beef bak kut teh costed me RM10.50 and the final verdict is good, especially on a rainy day! Definately something unique to try, but try to avoid peak hours!

It was a special occassion, so me and Miharu decided to check out Senjyu Sushi in Sunway Pyamid as we had some other chores there too. This was previously Genki Sushi and Senjyu have taken over this unit.

Senjyu looks classy with its modern interior setting and design… the menu looks expensive too but the quality of food serve is very good and special too. We ordered their promotion set, which is a salmon fish head, cooked to your choice, we chosed salt grilled plus rice and soup for RM13.90. We also took their promotional unagi handroll at RM2.00, kind of small in size but the unagi is good and fresh.

Something caught my attention here is their goose liver (foie gras) which you can take as sashimi or with sushi. I choose the a sushi, 3 pieces for RM12.00, that’s RM4 per bite (its small) which is sushi wrapped with cooked beef with avacado and grilled foie gras pieces on top!

Being a fan of Ika (squid), Miharu cannot resist to order their salt grilled ika or RM14,90. The squid is not grilled too cooked but they left it a half cooked style, still ok but I prefer it a bit burnt type, don’t know how to enjoy la me… hehe… Lasty, we had a cheese with spicy salmon sushi, RM6.00 for 3. Its cheese on top with spicy salmon inside.

Overall, the food here is good in terms of taste and quality. Service wise, the people are a bit green, so a little patience is needed. Total bill came up to RM60.70 for 2 persons :).

The shuttlebugs led by Elaine wanted to go to Pudu to buy lenses for their Canon DSLR at Plaza Pudu after work. Parking at this place is really a challenge even at night after office hour, be prepared to walk :(. We then proceeded to Sze Chuan Village Restaurant for ‘ma la hou guo’ which is sze chuan style steamboat. The soup pot is have 2 area, the inner pot is the ma la soup which are herbal chilies soup while the outer pot are herbal chicken soup.

I have eaten at their old branch in Sunwaymas various times but they have now located it to Bandar Sunway. You order what you like to eat to go with your steamboat, you will be given a form with a long list of items available and you just tick away.

We sure did ordered a tonnes of stuff, beef tripes, quail eggs, sliced lamb & pork, pork stomach, tofu, vege, porkballs, etc. In total we ordered 20 meats, 6 vegetables, 6 tofu, 2 noodles, 1 egg related plates ranging from RM4 to RM8 per plate. There’s an additional charge for soup at RM25.00 but you get some chicken in it and bottomless soup refills.

The sauces here to dip your steamboat food is quite unique, there are four types, one is a peanut sauce, a sesame sauce, chili paste and fermented beancurds (foo yee). You are supposed to mix the flavours according to your taste ;).

The soup itself is tasty and adding in all the goodies, for sure it will be good, after all you are getting premium soup ;). There are chicken meat and herbs in the whitish soup. The ma la soup is basically dried chili in oil plus herbal chicken soup cooked together. Elaine complained the ma la not spicy enough but her standard is different la :P.

Most of the food are fresh and nice, it is especially fun cooking the sliced meat as they cook very fast and you will need to cook them in your ladder in the soup for just 10 secs or so.

The way chinese tea served here are different, instead of pouring from the pot to the glass and add your own ice if you fancy, they have a beer jug with ice and the waitress will help you pre-mix them before serving, so service is quite efficient here ;).

In total we spent about RM280 for 10 persons, cost more than the average steamboat but once in a bluemoon eating here is ok for me ;).
