Recently, there is this new liquid nitrogen ice cream cafe from Singapore which opened its first branch in Malaysia. It is located in One Utama Shopping Centre, outside Isetan.
As we have taken a heavy dinner, four of us ordered one waffle with 2 scoops of premium flavor ice cream to share. Our order of the ice cream waffle and a black coffee cost Rm32.40. When I recall the one scoop of liquid nitrogen ice cream we had in Labmade Hong Kong was around HK$ 46, the price in Malaysia is still considerably affordable.

Yesterday we had our late brunch at Mr. & Ms. Cafe Ara Damansara. This is the second time we have brunch in that cafe. I still remember the butterscotch pancakes and ham + mushroom scrambled egg we had last time were really good.

Lately I have been craving a lot for gelato, as I have mentioned in earlier blog post. Yes, I am supposed to go on diet after realizing the alarmingly increase in my body weight. I just can't resist the taste of gelato, and I do hope I have the chance to taste the real Italian gelato one day.

Since Nana's Green Tea opened its second branch in One Utama Shopping Centre, I have been planning to try the set lunch offered there. My friend highly recommends the Japanese curry there, but I had doubts in it initially. After I ate the fried namban chicken rice in Midvalley branch few months ago, I felt the food was not up to standard, though the green tea parfait and matcha latte was delicious.
Finally, we were there for lunch yesterday. Without giving a second thought, I have chosen chicken karaage with Japanese curry as my main course. The set comes with a bowl of soup and a free beverage. I ordered my favourite iced matcha latte.
The chicken karaage was very tasty, very crispy and crunchy, and yet the meat was soft and juicy.The color was more brownish than the usual chicken karaage I had in Japan, but the taste was quite comparable. The curry was nice too, and was a good combination with the rice. The rice used is like a mixture of brown rice, white rice and some barleys, quite healthy and unique.
My choice of beverage, iced matcha latte. The thickness and sweetness just nice for my liking, unlike the Starbucks coffee type which is too sweet.
My friends ordered hot matcha latte, some say was good but one of them found it to be too strong. The taste and preference are always very subjective and based on individual liking. The set comes to RM22 per person inclusive of GST, and we think it is quite reasonable for the environment and portion given.

Lately I have been craving alot for ice cream or gelato. When I discovered Cielo Dolci has opened a new branch in Damansara Uptown, I was so excited. Yeah, Cielo Dolci has been my favourite gelato in Malaysia after my first try in Paradigm mall two years ago (the paradigm shop has closed down in 2015).
The branch in uptown different from others as it serves soft gelato too, with the name of Every Sundae Soft Gelato Bar by Cielo Dolci. It located next to the famous Village Park nasi lemak. Because of its location, you can imagine how difficult it is to get a parking there.

Madam Kwan is a chain restaurant in klang valley which serves local cuisine. The food, dessert and beverage there are on the pricey side. You can get equivalently good or better food elsewhere with a cheaper price. However, the ambience is good with cozy design,very suitable for dining with friends or working colleagues from overseas.
Yesterday was the first time I visit the branch in One Utama. The restaurant is located at the quiet end of the shopping mall.
Chicken satay. The meat was tender and flavourful, and the sauce was tasty.
Nasi bojari. I requested to change the beef rendang to curry chicken. This dish is delicious, I especially like the curry chicken and the rice. The fried chicken is a bit salty to my liking, but overall not bad. We requested for extra curry to go with the rice.
The 'ice kacang'. Not my favourite, I prefer the SS2 hawker stall than this. The ice too rough and there were too little sweet corn in it. Very disappointed.
Sago with gula melaka. Acceptable.

Today I gave a lunch treat to my family after getting the half month bonus. Monte's at Bangsar Shopping Centre which exist for more than a decade is one of my favourite restaurants. It serves set lunch from Monday to Sunday,and the menu changes every day. The price range from rm26++ to rm30++. The homemade chicken chop burger, homemade lamb chop burger, salmon steak, grilled fish fillet with salsa, black pepper chicken etc are some of the main course I have tried, and all these priced at rm26++. Their steak sets usually priced at rm30++. I always think the price is very reasonable for the portion of food served,the ambiance and the service provided. As compared to many eatery places which charge rm25 or above for a plate of simple pasta, I think Monte's is considered cheaper. The set comes with a free drink, a soup of the day, a main course, and a dessert which is usually ice cream or fruits. Besides, homemade soft sweet bun which is soft and warm is served with butter as the starter. The taste of the food there is delicious and tasty, though I always feel guilty for the carbo load after finishing the whole course.
