Pizza Marzano
Grand Indonesia, West Mall LG Fl Unit FoodHall, Jl. M.H. Thamrin No. 1 Jakarta

I can't wait to share out this post! I'm in Jakarta once again for work.  Colleague introduced the place and so me and two other colleagues went there for the pizzas. 
We reached there at about 12pm and the restaurant is still empty. Probably we're too early for lunch over there. 

Earl Grey Tea (Rp. 25, eq. RM7)

We ordered our drinks first. I ordered Earl Grey tea from their menu. They do serve coffee and other drinks as well. They serve Twinings tea.

[YummyEats] Two Pesos Restaurant (Mini Steamboat), SS2

Two Pesos Restaurant
No.7, Ground Floor, Jalan SS2/67 Petaling Jaya, Malaysia
Open Mon -  Sun, 12pm to 3pm, 6pm - 11pm

Two Pesos Restaurant, a mini steamboat concept restaurant is actually one of the famous hot pot places in Taiwan. It was opened in SS2 somewhere around August 2014. Each time I went, the queue was very long and end up I decided to eat at other places. Until last Friday, finally I waited for 30 minutes with bf.

While waiting for my turn

Ordering process was quite confusing to me. It took me few minutes to understand the menu. I actually have to choose which set that I want and select either pork, lamb or beef for the set, and also either rice, yee mee or rice vermicelli. FYI, you will need to proceed to the counter to write your name and order from the menu, and wait for your name to be called.

Indofood Spicy Fried Rice

Back from Jakarta last Friday. Went there for work for the first time. Besides work, I also had an amazing foodie experience over there. Thanks to my fellow colleagues, I get to try many types of yummy food, from Japanese to Indonesia local food around the working place and the condominium we stayed in. 

Jakarta Foodie Experience

There's this called Nasi Goreng Gila or Crazy Fried Rice which I'm quite obsessed with. I'm not quite sure why is it called that way. But I guess it is because of the spiciness of the rice. I am a fan of spicy food and I super love the level of spiciness of the Nasi Goreng Gila.

Image above is the original Nasi Goreng Gila I had in Jakarta. It was topped with slices of beef meatballs if I'm not mistaken. I didn't ate that because I cannot eat beef. The rice itself is awesome. If you love spicy food, you gonna love this!

Breakfast idea: Sunny side up egg over herb baguette with saute mushrooms

A simple western breakfast idea to share. Cooked this a couple of weeks ago on a lazy Sunday morning. Mum gave me the Happy Call pan and it is so good to use!

I buttered the bread and heat it for a while to have some crunch on it.

Next, I saute the brown button mushrooms with onions with a tablespoon of olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and black pepper to taste.

I fried the egg last with the Happy Call pan on low to medium heat.

Then, serve with slices of tomatoes.

Green tea is one of my favourite especially when comes to dessert. I love anything with green tea! Nana's Green Tea first opened in Mid Valley. I've been there once on weekdays and had the Matcha Shiratama Float alone. It was so good and I brought my bf on a Saturday after that and damn...the queue was so long and I decided not to wait. 

Thankfully, now they are here in 1 Utama with bigger space and more tables.No queues during weekend as well.

Green Tea Chiffon Cake

I baked this Green Tea Chiffon Cake last Sunday. I find it quite difficult to get green tea powder around my area. I bought the green tea powder from Bake With Yen but it was packed in a small bottle and priced at RM5.80 per bottle. The green tea powder was quite strong and I actually used it to make Iced Green Tea Latte a couple of weeks back. 

This time, my chiffon cake did not rise as much as I expected compare to the Orange Chiffon Cake that I made previously. Guess I need a few experiments more. Besides that, I also realised that extra sugar should be added because the green tea will cover up or took over the sweetness from the sugar. I should adjust the sugar amount from 100gm to 130gm next time.

 Simple deco fills the space

Back to the topic. If I'm not mistaken, Chuup was opened in somewhere around beginning of the year.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Its Halloween month! The first thing comes to mind is always pumpkin. It is my first time making this Pumpkin muffins. All this while, I've been using pumpkins in Chinese dishes. I cooked them by steaming and boiling them in soup. Never know that pumpkin can be used in baking as well. 

I started browsing through pumpkin recipes last week and I found many of them use extra spices like nutmeg, ground ginger and all spices. I want a simpler and not too complicated recipe. Finally I found one from No Frills Recipes. No extra spices was used except for cinnamon in making the lovely Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins.

[YummyEats] Bros. Cafe (Korean Dessert Cafe), Seremban 2

Bros. Cafe
No. 297, Jalan S2 B13, Uptown Avenue, Seremban 2, 70300 Seremban, N. Sembilan
Open Mon - Sun, 11am to 11pm
012-6772081 or 012-9680208

I almost forgotten to share this post. I actually went for a Malacca food trip a couple of weeks ago and stopped by Seremban. A friend recommended this cafe quite some time ago and of course I've been wanting to go since I'm a dessert lover.

Bros. Cafe do serves coffee at the ground floor but I didn't try their coffee. Bingsoo (Korean shaved ice dessert) is served on the first floor and customer have to order from there.

Nak-Cha Bingsoo (RM20)
Just OK.. 
Rating: 3/5

I was having hard time in making decision on which one to order. They have several choices and finally I go for this green tea bingsoo. It was served with green tea ice cream, red bean paste-like topped with nuts and oats and some sweetener. I love the green tea ice cream. The red bean paste was too sweet for me though.

I guess RM20 is a little bit overpriced.

Some descriptions of the bingsoo available.

The menu is available over the counter where they put it in their ipad. :)

Fried Lotus Root with Sambal Belacan

Something new in my dinner recipe list. As usual, I went to Taman Megah morning market on Sunday to get vegetables. Bought the lotus root for RM8. Quite a big piece and I still have half of it after I cook this dish.

I think this is another way that you can cook lotus root if you prefer it to be spicy.

Sorry, it's a bit blur :(

For 4 to 5 Servings


Lotus Root, sliced (amount depending on how much you wanna eat)
Dried shrimp, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tsp sambal belacan paste
2 tbsp oil
Spring onions, chopped (optional)


1. In a frying pan or wok, heat up oil in medium high heat and fry garlic and dried shrimp. 
2. Add in lotus root and fry for 2 minutes. Add some water and sambal belacan. Stir well. Let it boil for another 4 to 5minutes. Gradually add water to avoid it from drying. 
3. Add a pinch of salt to taste. I also add in spring onions.

Rekindle Cafe
No. 27, Jalan SS2/64, 47300 PJ, Selangor
Open Tue - Thu & Sun, 12pm to 12am, Fri - Sat, 12pm to 1am

It's Saturday and guess its a good time to post this. I've been wanting to visit Rekindle and finally I had the chance today to visit with my friend for a short catch up. I went there at about 3.30pm. Definitely a peak hour in Rekindle. But thankfully, we managed to get a place for two. 

Rekindle serves a wide range of drinks which includes coffee, tea, juices and cakes as well. Definitely a place for coffee and dessert lover like me. 

Cappuccino (RM10)
I like it! 
Rating: 4/5

The Cappuccino is good! The milk was at the right temperature and that allows to maintain the coffee flavour and texture. The latte art...hmm...maybe can still be improved. :)

ABC Soup (with sweetcorn)

I boil this soup quite often because it is simple and taste good, suitable for kids as well. I think thats why it is called ABC Soup. I can simply just have this soup with white rice for dinner. 

To boil this soup, the main ingredients are chicken, potato, onion and carrot. For this post, I added in sweetcorn because I have it extra in the fridge. Tomatoes and onions can provide enough sweetness to the soup already.

For 5 servings


1 big red onion, sliced (it's a must!!)
1 tomato
1 carrot
1/2 corn (optional)
1 medium to large potato, cubed (I used US potato)
800gm chicken

800ml water
Light soy sauce


1. In a medium pot, boil water at medium heat. Add corn and onions and carrot.
2. Then, add in chicken. Once it is boiling, turn to low to medium heat. After 15 minutes, add in potato and tomato.
3. Continue to boil for another 20 minutes. In between, add salt and light soy sauce.

Chicken Cottage Pie

I've been wanting to make this long time ago after I found this simple recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover. Simple and delicious recipe, suitable for a lazy Sunday when you don't feel like going out for dinner. So I made this a couple of weeks ago for my family. 

I adapted the recipe from Nasi Lemak Lover as I mentioned above. In her recipe, she did used cauliflower and since I don't have it in my kitchen, I just used broccoli.

100gm canned button mushrooms, cubed
200gm broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1 carrot, cubed
1 can of Campbell Cream of Chicken (small can)

4 US Russet Potatoes (small to medium size), cut to smaller pieces
5tbsp milk
Black pepper 


1. Boil potatoes in a pot of boiling water until tender.
2. In a bowl, mashed the potatoes and add in milk, black pepper and milk. Set aside.
3. In a frying pan, heat up oil in medium heat and add in onions. Add in chicken and stir until it changes colour. Then, add in the cream of chicken and remaining ingredients. Cook for another 2 minutes and season with salt.
4. Transfer the chicken to the baking dish. Scoop the mashed potato and spread evenly. Stripes the surface with a fork. Sprinkle some dried parsley (optional).
5. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 200C for 20 minutes till the top turns slightly brown.

[YummyEats] Double Park Cafe & Bar, SS2

Double Park Cafe & Bar
86/88, Jalan SS2/60, 47300 Petaling Jaya
Open Monday - Sunday, 12.00pm to 1.00am (Last call for food items: 11.00pm) 
including eves and public holiday

This is the first time I'm sharing my eating out post in my blog. Visited Double Park Cafe & Bar in SS2 during weekend for dinner. I remember this cafe was previously the UFO Desserts and if I'm not mistaken, this cafe is quite new.

It is a suitable place for catching up with friends or just to chill on a weekend night with friends. There's live band in this cafe too. Definitely a strong competitor for Wings Music Cafe located on the same street.

So, we ordered this Curry Pork Chop Rice (RM13.90) listed in the Signature Rice section in the menu. Tasted OK and acceptable.

I ordered this Pork Chop (RM17.90) with mushroom sauce. Again, nothing special. It's rather bland and I need to eat with chilli sauce. Guess I can cook better than this.

Also ordered this Grass Jelly Shaved Ice with sweet potato, taro ball, yogurt ball and red beans (RM7.50). The shaved ice actually tasted weird. Some sort of chemical-like taste. Not sure why it tasted like that. The yogurt ball was good though.

I also ordered a glass of Honey Lemon Ice (RM5.90). Taste good but a little bit too sweet for me. 

Overall, it was an average dinner on a Saturday night with bf. I think it is a suitable place for hanging out with friends because Double Park Cafe & Bar serves quite a wide variety of drinks, snacks and sandwiches.

Total Damage: RM48.20

Apple Streusel Muffins

Its the usual baking day last weekend. It was quite a random decision to bake Apple Streusel Muffins. It is my first time baking this muffin and I think it can be improved next time.

Little Thumbs Up theme for this month is Apple and its also one of the reason I chosen this recipe.

Chocolate Banana Muffins

Here's another recipe I've been wanting to share. I've been busy recently with the new job starting this week and was trying to adapt with the new environment. I baked this Chocolate Banana Muffins the day after I baked the Walnut Butter Cake

I got lots of bananas from the morning market at Taman Megah and the uncle sold to me in a very cheap price. FYI, if you want to get vegetables and fruits in a much cheaper price, you should visit the market at 10am because they start to reduce the price by that time. :)

Walnut Butter Cake

It was a long weekend because the Independence Day falls on Sunday and there's Monday as a replacement holiday in Malaysia. I was so excited to bake on Sunday and Monday! I've been wanting to bake Walnut Butter Cake. I bought 1KG of walnuts from Bake With Yen a couple of weeks ago.

Vanilla Orange Overnight Oats

This is one of my new favourite overnight oats. I super love Yoplait's Vanilla Yogurt. Not too sweet and not too sour, with light vanilla taste.

There's some request from friends on pictures of what brand of oats, yogurt that I used and step by step pictures of making overnight oats.

Keep reading.

Strawberry Banana Overnight Oats

Another delicious overnight oats made topped with lovely strawberries and banana. Finished up my strawberries from the fridge for this. I'm satisfied with how I made use of the strawberries.

The basic ingredients are the same as normal overnight oats with milk and yogurt, just the toppings are different.
