Feng Mao BBQ @ off Jalan Yew

We drove down to Jalan Sungai Besi, took the wrong exit and had to make a U-turn and after a few twist and turn we ended up right in front of where we want to be : Feng Mao – for our BBQ set meal.

After taking our seats, our cooking pit was fired up and we were good to go.

This was what we had to cook for the night

The dip to go with the BBQ

While waiting for the food to cook, we were served the following:

Home made salad (RM8)  : vermicelli , cucumber and vegetable. Not bad.

Stir fried potato threads (RM8) if I hadn’t ate this before,I would not have guessed that these were potatoes, the texture, the taste didn’t say potatoes ! Not bad..

We didn’t like the egg fried rice (RM6), it was soggy and tasteless..

In between stuffing ourselves with the salad and the potatoes shreds,  we kept a watchful eye on the work-in-progress food and not forgetting to turn the skewers when necessary

The work-in –progress and the progressed food. Having a higher rack to ‘park’ the cooked stuff and to keep them warm is a good idea. We weren’t very sure whether we were eating lamb, pork or beef but the BBQ stuff were rather tasty, a large number of skewers were seafood paste/ balls.

We were a bit too slow / we were too immersed in eating and burnt the toast..i guessed the rest of the diners could smell the burning  as many heads were looking our way, lucky they didn’t throw the fire extinguisher at us..

Overall, an ok  meal lah

Another Groupon deal makan outing, this time it was at Sixty Nine Bistro. These people were ready for the Groupon crowd, we were shown to our table and given a preprinted form to order our meal Afro hairstyle, platform shoes and bell bottoms would fit in nicely with the retro atmosphere at the bistro. The decoration might seem a bit tacky to some and I noticed part of settee were cracked and some spots on the wall might need a coat of new paint. But the place was cozy and oozes charm. the official website : http://www.69bistro.com.my/home.php

For appetizer we had chicken ham roll with vegetable – the four pretty rolls came to our table planted in a bowl of ice. Apart from keeping the rolls cold , I think the ice might had somewhat diluted the taste of the chicken ham which made these rolls rather tasteless. For my second roll, I enrolled Chunny’s help to eat the ham while I conquer the crunchy carrot-cucumber-celery sticks.

Mushroom soup was next- these came in tea cups rather than soup bowls which was practical and cute- which also meant that the serving wasn’t that big lah. The taste of the soup was average

 For my main course, I decided to try the Ayam penyet set, this came with steamed rice, chicken  and fried tofu. Ayam penyet is literally translate to mean flatten chicken – the process of ‘flattening’ usually involved lightly smashing the fried chicken with a pestle in a mortar. I think the cook must have been a  softhearted person or had a prior warning from RSPCA- the chicken drumstick that I was served seemed to be in an unflattened state. Taste wise- I liked it, the meat was soft and very flavourful and worked perfectly with the warm steamed rice.The deep fried tofu were crispy and light. I likeyyy..

Chunny had the cheesy fish and chips –fish fillet baked with mozzarella cheese and accompanied by salad and chips. I must say that the dish doesn’t look like your regular fish and chips lor. Chunny was happy with her selection and seemed to likeeeyy this too.

Dessert was next.. how could anyone go wrong with ice cream and choc stick..yumm

Oh, there is one thing unique about Sixty Nine Bistro , after filling your tummy, you can have a sit down with the astrologer and have your fortune told. The bistro offers  horoscope and tarot card reading! Sorry- that is not a part of the Groupon deal  !

When we were dining at Adai a few weeks back, noticed that a few doors away directly at the five foot way of the 7-11 shop there was this open air stall which had a larger crowd than the shop I was eating at, so guess this make it pretty noteworthy lor..and hence, why we were here.

We weren’t too sure what to order, and asked the waiter to recommend something and we agreed on : Thai style Fei Chow fish, Fu yue ( fermented beancurd) vege and pineapple chicken. For drinks they have home boiled chrysentimum tea and also cincau. 

1 thing very commendable about this place, service was very fast. The dishes started to arrived when we hadn’t even warmed our seats.

First up- fu yue vegetable – the cook had been kinda heavy handed with the salt and the vege was kinda tough , it takes a bit of chewing..no wonder a cow has 5 stomach..err..or was it 4 ?

 vege

It was a nice surprise when the pineapple chicken arrived, it was somewhat unexpected to us that an open air warong took pain in presentation of the dishes ..the deep fried chicken pieces atop banana leave came in a halved pineapple ..ada class mannnn. The bite-sized chicken pieces were deep fried to a crisp accompanied by pieces of pineapple. This was quite tasty, there were some slight tinge of spiciness in a sweet-sour thick gooey gravy. ( the other version is pineapple pork ribs)

 pineapple chic

Thai style feichow  fish – the fish was deep fried and coated with Thai style chili sauce, which gave it a sweet-spicy flavour, this was pretty ok too but maybe a tad too dry as there were not much of gravy.

 fish

There were no signboard, so I had to ask a waitress for the name of the place, judging by the crowd ( there were ~12 tables, and all of them taken up)  this seemed to be a reasonably popular place. The bill came to RM42 ( including 3 drinks and 2 rice) which we all find to be reasonable.

We find that all the dishes that we order had rather strong flavours ( including the vege which was kinda salty).  Overall an ok meal
