Its been more than 10 years since all of us worked together in the old company and when Jack sent out a mail calling for gathering, everyone turned up except for the few whom have “migrated” one way of another.

We wanted to have a beer session but since food is quite important as well, we decided to have a proper dinner before our beer session. I asked Ah John the local worm to recommend a good and affordable Chinese dishes dinner in Puchong and was pointed to Restoran 8 Road (just beside Thong Kee and below Hotel Orkid).

As KC was the first to arrived we left the ordering to him. First up are some lala cooked in herbal soup served in claypot, the soup is very tasty and full of flavours.

I personally liked the chicken very much, just simple poached chicken and chopped up but served with a sauce of chopped Chinese parsley, garlic, soya sauce.

The braised pork belly is ok but a little too big for the serving, too much meat for me there.

The frog legs stirred fried with dark soya sauce and dried chili is rich in flavours but yet the frog legs are tender, very well done.

We topped it all up with a nice plate of stirred fried vegetables.

I think everyone enjoyed the dinner very much as we cleaned everything up in like minutes. The dinner for 8 of us cost about RM147.00 for food and RM65 for some starter beers, so pricing is reasonable but most important of all, the food is very good ;).

The nice thing is that they have Erdinger draft here besides Hoegaarden and Franziskaner. They a current promotion of 1 + 1/2 pints of beer for RM32 but unfortunately only Mon to Thurs and we went there on a weekend :(.

We sat inside at the end of the restaurant and everyone is out of phone reception, those seats outside looks a lot better, think I will prefer to sit outdoor next time.

Anyway, we got drowned ourselves with beers and order sausage platters, pork knuckles to share, me and Miharu shared a plate of pork chop. Food itself is not bad and pricing is almost similar to other German type of bistro around town.

The total bill came up to a whopping 800++ for 12 of us no thanks to normal priced draft german and belgium beer. Overall food is ok but I would really come back for their happy hour promotion the next time ;).

One of my Thai mixed colleague recommended me to check out Ah Wet Thai in Yulek, Cheras and from the posting on some of the blogs, it was really drooling just looking at the pix.

I just got back from a business trip to Bangkok and Ciku initiate a makan at Ah Wet on the weekend and somehow I got KC to join us and he told me that there’s a new branch from Ah Wet in Bandar Puteri, Puchong which is nearer to us. So we got ourselves organised, got the directions from KC’ bro and we sure had a great time enjoying authentic thai food here.

Ah Wet is a corner lot with still a lot of parking around it since the new shops in front of it is yet to open. Service is excellent here, staff are friendly, very attentive and responsive, it couldn’t be better. Each guest are served with pandan water drink while running through the menu.

Since most Thai food in Malaysia lacks pork… we sort of targetted all the pork dishes, I ordered a Thai style pork knuckle at RM40, Pork Salad RM12, BBQ Pork Neck RM18, BBQ Squid RM18, 2 portions of tomyam RM15.60 and Pork Tofu for little Rachel at RM12.

The pork knuckle is quite well portioned and crispy with lean tender meat but the sauce is average comparing to those I had in Bangkok. However to be fair, they had tuned down all the sauces to fit local taste, especially on spicy-ness level ;).

The BBQ pork neck is the best dish for the night and good portion for the price too. Its quite comparable to the bbq pork neck I just had in Bangkok, soft and lean, even those who take takes a lot of meat will love this. The BBQ squid is ok la, normal. Tofu pork also ok only la.

The pork salad is very authentic but its not as spicy as those in Bangkok which in fact is good for our kind of spicy tolerant level, but I know to people like Elaine, this is not up to her standard, LOL. Tomyam is also good with a good balance of sour and spicy level.

Overall food is very satisfactory and service is great, all of us left the place happy looking forward to return. They had just opened for 3 weeks when I had my dinner there, I am sure it will get busier with such good food and service ;).
