One Utama Wonder Food Adventure : Mains for Lunch & DinnerThursday, November 28, 2013
**Scroll to bottom of this post for the previous post on this adventure.
Continuing the Food adventure, today will be highlight on the rice, noodle, pizza, chicken, beef and pork….. Yes, the heavy stuff for your lunch and dinner… If you are feeling hungry in the middle of your shopping or wanted to grab a dinner before you movie night…. Ahaaaa you should head to One Utama Food Street to treat your hunger right away… I know there are too many varieties to choose from, so worry not as i'll be sharing some of the signature food of the restaurant that will help you make the right decision!
Let’s kick start the gastronomy adventure with Chinese galore…
1. Pao Xiang Bah Kut Teh
Type: Pork (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: Non HalalLot/Location: P282 / Lower Ground Floor Promenade Old WingPrice Range: RM12.50 - RM 13.50 per standard bowlSignature: U-Mien & Assorted Yong Tau FooRating: 3/5
This is definitely unlike the usual Bah Kut Teh I had before… I mean they focused on the string tied meat and not the soup… The string tied meat is not soaked in deep claypot of herbal soup, instead it is only soaked in a small amount of soup in a porcelain bowl on top of a candle to ensure the soup and meat is kept warm. Honestly, I still love the one in claypot because the soup is boiling hot and I love drinking the aromatic soup. However, the string tied meat was really good because all excess fats and oil is extracted via the string tied method!!! You know I hate fatty meat!!! So this meat is really great!!! In addition, the meat is so soft and tender….Incredible…
Judging by the look of it, it didn't really appeal to me… However I went to try out a few of the yong tau foo like brinjal, bitter guard and fish ball. Not the best that I have tasted but in comparison to food court and to those in shopping mall with the price range, I think it is pretty decent.Type: Noodle, Meat, Vegetable, Chinese (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: Pork FreeLot/Location: LGK115 / Lower Ground Floor Promenade Old WingPrice Range: RM 4.80 – RM 12.80 each (promo set: RM 7.90 for any 3 items + noodle)Signature: Lam Mee & Royal TeaWebsite: http://lammeeya.blogspot.com/Rating: 2/5
Restaurant/ Stall Info
Lammeeya set to win your heart with healthy choice of Chinese food that taste like home cooked food… Soup boiled for hours, noodle soaked in the sweet broth or the famous dark eggy gravy and various Chinese dishes to go with white fluffy rice is what you can find in Lammeeya. This reminds me of my dear mom's cooking back at home..So if you are out and about and miss home cooking, then you should really try this. Their Lam Mee & Royal Milk Tea are the must try. Lam Mee is comprised of yellow noodle soaked in a thick, smooth and eggy dark gravy often garnished with hard boiled egg, bean sprout, chicken strips and prawns.Type: Noodle and Rice (Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: Non HalalLot/Location: LG333A / Lower Ground Floor Highstreet New WingPrice Range: RM 4.80 – RM 12.80 each (promo set: selected noodles free drink)Signature: Lam Mee & Royal TeaWebsite: http://lammeeya.blogspot.com/Rating: 2/5
The infamous Royal Milk Tea has a strong red tea aroma with a smooth milky form…. Absolutely Love it!!
p/s: I have review about Lammeeya in my previous visit. You can read about Lammeeya Food Review here.
4. Food Box
Initially by looking at the name, Food Box I thought it was another variant of Japanese bento box… Gosh, I was so wrong about it as a matter of fact, it is Asian Chinese dishes (with Hakka food influences) served with rice, omelet, vegetable and soup. I must say the price is such a great deal especially in shopping mall outside the food court! We tried the Hakka Braised Pork which i may add that it was braised till soft and tender. Absolutely delish. The only set back was tad salty but if you take it with white rice, it’s super awesome combo!Type: Noodle, Rice, Hakka (Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: Non HalalLot/Location: LG312C / Lower Ground Floor Highstreet new wingPrice Range: RM 6.90 – RM 7.90 each (each dish come with rice, vegetable, omelet & soup)Signature: Hakka Braised PorkWebsite: https://www.facebook.com/Foodbox1uRating: 3/5
Beside this Hakka dish, you can also opt for other common Chinese dish like Sweet and Sour Fish, Braised Ginger Pork, Thai style chicken and many more. Oh not to forget, there are also noodles to choose from like the famous Asam Laksa or Curry Mee.
Fancy something sweet after meal? Try the famous Hakka “dessert/cake” Kuih Kose & Rice Bowl cake which completes the meal with superb taste!
Food Box is suitable for family or even individual. So don’t forget to try the next time you are at One Utama!
Now that we are done with the Chinese food, let's we move on to Korean Food…Oh yes you Kim Chi lover you gotta love this!!
Annyeonghaseyo !! Undeniable that I enjoy Korean Food but only limited to Korean Barbeque not kim chi nor the red spicy soup or stew because I don’t do well with spicy… I am sold when I first take a sip of the Soon Du Bu Ji Gae (Spicy Soft Tofu Stew). Though the name suggest tofu but in fact there is whole lot of seafood treasure in it!!! For someone who don’t take spicy red soup, I am giving this a thumb up.Type: Noodle, Rice, Kim Chi, Meat, Vegetable, Korean (Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: HalalLot/Location: LG116 / Lower Ground Floor Promenade Old WingPrice Range: RM 11.50 – RM 18.90 eachSignature: Soon Du Bu Ji Gae (Spicy Soft Tofu Stew) & O Jing Eo Bokem (Stir Fried Squid in Homemade Chili)Website: http://www.kohyang.com.my/Rating: 4/5
Bibimbap on the other hand was alright because they use fried egg instead of raw egg so some marks were minus… Instead of using white rice, at Ko Hyang they serve healthy brown rice too which is used in making the Bibimbap.. The soup that came along with lots of egg floss was really good…I think they are really good at making soup!
Another highlight was O Jing Eo Bokem (Stir Fried Squid in Homemade Chili)! The big, thick and juicy squid fried with their special homemade chili and lots of cabbage… Mmmph good to go with fluffy white rice.
Well we are done with traditional Korean food, let’s move to modern Korean Food!
7. BBQ Chicken
Don’t be deceive by the short form of the BBQ as we all fell for its name and curiosity arose on why the ads in the main entrance is fried chicken instead of barbeque chicken…Type: Rice/ Pasta/ Sandwich/ Fried Chicken/ Western/ Lunch/ DinnerHalal/ Non Halal: HalalLot/Location: LG323-LG323A / Lower Ground Floor Highstreet New WingPrice Range: RM 5.90 to RM 29.50 ( Lunch/ Student Meal: Frm RM 15 –16.90 c/w free flow soft drink )Signature: Olive Luxury Chicken (Fried Chicken), Hot Drum, Korean CharbroiledWebsite: http://www.bbq-chicken.com.sg/Rating: 5/5
BBQ stands for Best of the Best Quality! Started in Korea, they use 100% Olive Oil from Europe to fried their chicken and to prepare other food too, the first one in the world to do so! BBQ chicken is marinated with 30 types of natural spices for 12-15 hours…Their selling point is they NEVER use frozen chicken instead chilled chicken is used to ensure the freshness! They have mass selections from fried chicken to grilled chicken/ steak, sandwich, burger, pasta and pizza. I am sure there is something for everyone in BBQ!!!
The Olive Luxury Chicken (Fried Chicken) is as crispy as the one in KFC (spicy flavor), the only difference is less oily, fresh and tender meat and non spicy! While Sharon love the Charbroiled Chicken, I on the hand think it has too many fats…However the chicken is well marinated so it taste really good if the fats is removed.
I love this BBQ concept and the varieties they offered…Definitely coming back!
Now, shall we fly to Japan from Korea for some Ninja Affair??
7. Ninja Joe
Hai Yaaaaah!!!!!!!!!! Your pork burger is made upon order and will be ready in less than 5 minutes. The first Porky Fast Food chain store in Malaysia originated from Japan. Grilled pork patty layer with various of combination of bacon, egg, cheese, salad, mushroom just pick your desired burger from the menu. If you're not a pork lover, chicken burger option is available too! This is a good place for those who want a quick meal!Type: Burger/ Bento/ Sandwiches/ Fast Food (Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: Non HalalLot/Location: LG113 / Lower Ground Floor Promenade Old WingPrice Range: RM 8.90 to RM 13.90 ( Lunch & Dinner set starts from RM 8.90 )Signature: HikkoriWebsite: https://www.facebook.com/porkburger/Rating: 4/5
We sample the new Hikkori with BBQ sauce toping the grilled pork patties and pork bacon and finished with pickled and tomato slices. Being a BBQ sauce lover I must say this is very delicious however portion is rather small…Perhaps it is pork serving which might lead to higher cost, compared to regular chicken but the price is about three quarter of those in other burger chain (so does the size). So that's price vs size is justified I guess!
Let me know if you have try Ninja Joe and which is your favourite!
Next we shall make a stop in America for some hearty pizza meal and this will be our last stop in this adventure!!
8. Vivo American Pizza & Panini
This is one of the place where you get to enjoy warm and hearty American Pizza made with the latest baking technology. Be delighted with various home style selections of Panini and pasta. Smoked Chicken BBQ Pizza is my new love… The sweet Vivo special BBQ sauce layering the entire dough filled with Chicken strips, fresh mushrooms, onions, red & green capsicums, black olives really delightful! Baked Chicken chop was rather normal for my liking…Type: : Pizza/ Pasta/ Panini/ Dessert (Lunch or Dinner)Halal/ Non Halal: HalalLot/Location: LG311B / Lower Ground Floor Highstreet New WingPrice Range: RM 12.90 to RM 18.90 ( Promo: click here)Signature: Smoked Chicken BBQ Pizza, Crispy Chicken Panini, Volcanic Chocolate with Ice CreamWebsite: http://www.vivopizza.com/Rating: 5/5
Volcanic Chocolate with Ice Cream is a must order to complete your meal in Vivo… The molten chocolate oozing out from the cake is simple heart warming… Pair it with the freezing ice cream, best combination ever!!
So there you go, all 8 restaurant of serving mains for you to try it out…. This adds to the total of 15 restaurant / stall that I have try in One Utama Wonder Food Adventure!!! It was a great honor to be able to sample each and every restaurant…. I felt really hungry while typing this post and the sudden emerging urge to travel down to One Utama to try out the other remaining dishes on the menu!!!!
