Visited the newly opened Big Apple Donuts and Coffee KK branch today at City Mall.
Ordered myself a half-dozen donut pack with Iced Apple Tea and Hot Lemon Tea.
As with all donut franchises, the beauty of the donuts lie in the feelings and the toppings. There are 22 available topping flavours in KK branch's Big Apple. I tried the Durien Durien, Bananarama, Moonraker,Cheese, Oreo and Californian Almond.
The Durien flavoured one was the best of the bunch! The Monnraker was actually chocolate cream with Kelloog's cereal flakes. Vewwy Cwunchy!! Bananarama was actually a chocolate ream donut with banana cream as the center topping. Cheese is made out lil strips of cheese melted onto the top of the donut! Oreo is made of grindede Oreo powder on top of the donut and California Almnods can be found with generous servings of Almond nuts frozen on top of the donut with a tasty icing ;)
I give it a 4/5 ! Plus side was definitely the long awaited donut franchise in KK has been finally fulfilled.
Downside is that it's rm2.30 per donut~
So if you ever have the sudden craving for donut-dunkin' action, Big Apple in City Mall is finally here to answer to that craving!Comments (2) Tell a friend
I started to love pasta the day my mom cooked her very first dish of spaghetti bolognese that she had learned from Canada.
Pasta can be divide into different types and different sauces. There's the ever popular spaghetti and fettucine and the ever fave tomato based bolognese sauce and the cream-based carbonara sauce.
The one I'm having here is the Penne in Tomato-based Bolognese sauce. The bolognese sauce has the taste of tomato too much. Usually bolognese sauces for pasta are made using tomato puree but in this case, the sauce had too much texture and sour+salt of the tomato in it. I had trouble finishing the dish as you usually order side dishes in Italian restaurants ;)
The whole Italian cuisine is actually an endless taste fest. I mean today, you could try Penne with Bolognese while tomorrow you can try Penne again with carbonara instead. As if things weren't complicated enough, you can always sprinkle cheese powder on the food for added variety =)
I'm giving this a 3.5 out of 5 due to the fact that I have never been a fan of Italian food thanks to the hefty price tag =)Add Comment Tell a friend
One of the few authentic must-order dishes in Lil' Italy. I've been ordering this everytime I visit the restaurant.
The Baked Sandwich is actually a combination of lean meat, cabbage, onion, lettuce and a special seasoning sauce all crammed between 2 hard crust sesame biscuits.
At the first bite, you'll notice, aside from the crunchy biscuit, the soft feel of the cold lean meat along with the blast of flavors from the vegetables and the cold sauce. In short, it's like chewing on a bowl of salad with some sesame biscuits thrown in for fun =)
The sandwich comes in 6 slices, enough for 3 persons even. My personal fave for the cold lean meat is salmon, but if you're not too crazy about salmon, you can also order the sandwich with cold turkey ham or chicken meat.
5 out of 5 for originality and great taste!Add Comment Tell a friend
Picture is not taken from Hana. Credits go to www.mikku.no.
The Hana version of the chawanmushi is very interesting. I'm recommending this dish becoz it does not taste like the Chawanmushi in other Jap restaurants. The smell of the egg batter is not too powerful and the added shreds of crabmeat are a plus.
For those who do not like Chawanmushi due to the strong smell of egg, try this one in Hana and you might fall in love with the dish all over again... like I did =)
4 out of 5 for making the bad smell of eggs go away XDComments (1) Tell a friend
For those unacquainted with this restaurant, Hana (which means "flower", as in HANAmichi Sakuragi), is located outside the shopping mall of City Mall. The dish Yaki Tori loosely translates to "Grilled Chicken on Stick".
If one wants to try how Japanese style BBQ tastes like, then the Yaki Tori is just one of the better dishes to start with. At rm6 for two "sticks", I can honestly say the taste will be very enlightening =)
The first thing you taste would be the overpowering smell of the vinegar used. Jap peeps love vinegar so much that they usualy include it in all their dishes, even during BBQ ! The vinegar used is mixed with honey and smothered on the meat before leaving it to be roasted BBQ style.
If you were to visit Hana, this dish is best recommended as a starter to jump start your appetite. 5 out of 5 for good ol' Jap Style BBQ d (^.^) bComments (2) Tell a friend
For those unacquainted with Archie, Archie De Corner has been known to give very 'generous' portions for cheap prices. It all started out in Heritage Plaza (now known as Eddie's Corner), then moved to some shops in behind Lido... now it's located just next to Ma Bakers !
Among the food served there are the very big slices of lamb chops, pork chops, chicken chops, beef steaks and also fish n chips. The Grilled Chicken Chop that I had was served with fries, baked beans and canned sliced pineapples. A bit of improvement as he did not serve pineapple slices before (I'm abit fan of Archies for the past few good years).
The chicken was not boneless... It's actualy a serving of TWO huge chicken thighs and truth be told I had probs finishing the dish nowadays. The pineapples were nice but the fries were a bit too oily.
For those who do not like oily fewds, then I recommend you to look elsewhere coz Archie does not go easy on the oil. Only come here if you have a family of hungry wolves during the weekends =)Comments (3) Tell a friend
