TeAmo Drink Tasting @ Laman Rimbunan, Kepong

Sorry for neglecting my blog for few days. I've been sick for 4 days and is still sick now :(
Anyway, I was invited by TeAmo to their drink tasting session at Kepong last week.
They're currently running a Buy 1 Free 1 promotion for all their drinks and wafus (their own version of waffle).

My favorites are Passion Fruit with Konjac Jelly and Pearl and Slim Fresh Tea. Kudos to TeAmo for bringing the healthiest and freshest tea drinks to Malaysians so that we can enjoy tasty drinks and healthy at the same time! Besides that, you can also choose your drink based on their benefits e.g. for beauty, choose Beauty Beauty and for a slim body, choose Slim Fresh Tea!

Wafu is their own version of waffle whereby the outside is very very crispy while the inside is soft, it kinda reminds me of yao char kuey but of course yao char kuey is not as crispy as this. My personal favorite is Wafu Peanut and Wafu Chocolate! Wafu Peanut tastes really yummy especially when I took a bite and the peanut butter came out oozing!

After tasting session, we stayed back for the Miss Sunshine Girl Contest finale where one of the bloggers, Jennifer is joining! Aja aja, hwaiting!!

Food Review: Mikaku Ramen @ 1 Shamelin Shopping Mall

As a Cheras resident, I feel so ashamed that I've never been to 1 Shamelin Shopping Mall before. After 1 year opening, finally I have the chance to pay this place a visit and the purpose for being here is none other than finding great food!

Mikaku Ramen
Mikaku Ramen

Mikaku Ramen has a special interior whereby there are many text bubbles all around the restaurant and their mascot is a cute chubby little girl that actually exists in reality! How I wish to meet her in person!




Menu wise, the choices are extensive ranging from ramen, sushi, hot stone bowl, sashimi and donburi so you can choose to eat whatever you want depending on your mood. I went there with an empty stomach to try all the yummy food!

Green tea

Gomoku Katayakisoba Price: RM 17.90
Gomoku Katayakisoba
Price: RM 17.90
The first main dish that we tried was Gomoku Katayakisoba. The name is really hard to pronounce but it doesn't really matter cos the ramen that was covered with thick egg gravy and filled with abundance of seafood and healthy vegetables tasted really good! I'd say that it's quite similar to Cantonese Style Noodle.

Hiyashi Chuka Price: RM 18.90
Hiyashi Chuka
Price: RM 18.90
So far, I've only tried chilled soba but Hiyashi Chuka is a chilled ramen dish. It's my first time so I felt a little skeptical at first. It turned out to be quite appetising thanks to the sweetness of sweet corn and egg combined with crunchy assorted vegetables! Definitely a new kind of experience for me!

Shoyu Ramen Price: RM 16.90

Price: RM 16.90

Ingredients in Shoyu Ramen
Shoyu Ramen, being one of the signature dishes here, has unfortunately left me with disappointment as the soup is not flavorful enough and there's not enough fat on the slice of pork chir siu. Their ramen is imported from Japan and the soup base is cooked for 3-4 hours daily to ensure freshness.

Gekikara Price: RM 18.90
Gekikara
Price: RM 18.90
There has been many Japanese restaurants that offer Kimchi ramen but for Mikaku Ramen, they decided to give it a twist by making it Szechuan style in Gekikara. The addictive hot and spicy ramen was garnished with a generous amount of seafood like prawns and squids and assorted vegetables, a great choice of food for rainy days.

Yakisoba Price: RM 16.90
Yakisoba
Price: RM 16.90
One of the dishes I recommend here would definitely be Yakisoba. Although the fried soba is dry but it is stirred with a special sweet and sour sauce, making it very flavorful and not too dry for my liking. The hot stone bowl is really useful in preserving the warmth of the delicious noodles!

Tori Teriyaki No Onsen Tamago Chahan Price: RM 16.90
Tori Teriyaki No Onsen Tamago Chahan
Price: RM 16.90
For meat lovers, I suggest you go for Tori Teriyaki No Onsen Tamago Chahan. It's really fulling and the tender chicken meats marinated with Teriyaki sauce is yummy to be eaten with rice covered with Onsen Tamago.

Kanitama Chahan Price: RM 16.90
Kanitama Chahan
Price: RM 16.90
Kanitama Chahan is another great hot stone bowl dish with runny eggs and the delicious sweet and sour sauce enhances the flavor of the rice by a notch. I would order this for a meat-less diet!

Maguro Tataki Price: RM 13.90
Maguro Tataki
Price: RM 13.90
If you fancy sashimi, don't miss this! I'm addicted to it after the first piece! Unlike the usual tuna that I've eaten before, Maguro Tataki was prepared by pan frying the tuna on only one side while leaving the other side raw. This made the texture very special as it is slightly hard on the outside but soft on the inside.

Jikasei Gyoza Price: RM 9.90
Jikasei Gyoza
Price: RM 9.90
Whenever there's ramen, there's always Gyoza! These two dishes can't seem to separate from each other. I really enjoy this Jikasei Gyoza whereby juicy and tender pork meat, vegetables and marinated ginger are wrapped together with a thin piece of dough.

California Sushi Maki Age Price: RM 7.90

Price: RM 7.90

Onsen Tamago Price: RM 2.90
Onsen Tamago
Price: RM 2.90
Onsen Tamago!! Everyone went crazy when they saw that this is on the menu and immediately ordered it. In order to make Onsen Tamago, temperature control is very crucial to ensure that the egg white comes out milky and soft while the egg yolk must be firm but retains the color and creamy texture of an uncooked yolk.

Recommendations: Onsen Tamago, Maguro Tataki, Yakisoba, Gekikara, Gomoku Katayakisoba
