There are some facts that I have researched on lately that cleared my mind. All along I always thought the Canton-i (http://wp.me/pCcuC-4A) at ION Orchard in Singapore is related to Dragon-i in Malaysia… I was right, Canton-i is under the Dragon-i Restaurant Group of Companies. Whether the outlet in Singapore is a direct expansion or franchise, I’ve yet to find out. The other thing I’ve always thought that Canton-i was under the Paradise Group of Singapore, apparently not, just that they have Canton Paradise under their group which sounds similar.
Anyways this is my second time here at this outlet in KL after so many years… the first time was before I started writing on food some 5 years ago. So I was in town for work and then met up with a friend for dinner to check out their food once again. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Standard still as good as last time. If I had my other foodie friends with me, we could have ordered all their signature dishes.
Service: Excellent. However, you can see the manageress keep eyeing on the other service staff. I feel for the waitresses/waiters.
Ambience: Not as posh as I remember it to be. But still quite comfy for diners.
Price: All that for around RM$200. About S$80. In Singapore it will cost more than that.
RTE: I might but I still prefer the street food wherever I travel. 🙂
Location: Lot No. 1.17.00, Storey No. Level 1, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Tel : +603 2143 7688. Reservations highly recommended.
Was in these parts for a dinner break as the jam towards Kuala Lumpur is just too much. So my colleagues and I turned out to Seremban 2 where there is a huge mall called JUSCO Seremban 2 Shopping Centre. Trust me, there are many many places to have our dinner and finally settling for this Row-Six restaurant. What caught my eye was actually the blue colour rice set, Nasi Ketuk and that’s what I was hoping to try.
Taste: Taste was pretty ok. Some reviews I read was bad but was quite good for me.
Yeah I’m on a roll writing Genting food ‘cos I really need to clear all the food that I reckon worthy (or not!) in my backlogs. This foodcourt place has been there for the longest time, originally opened for the bus and taxi drivers but now more people are actually eating there now. Recently renovated, this foodcourt now is a lot nicer than what it was previously. Along with the new renovation, the price of the food also escalated a lot. Nevertheless it’s prolly one of the cheapest places to eat when you’re in Genting Highlands. Check out the reviews below:
Taste: 4/5 (A lot better than some ‘higher class’ eateries in Genting)
Service: Self-service. For the tse char you can opt for the dishes be served but will be more costly.
Ambience: 3/5 (Smokers are still allowed inside…)
Price: Average around RM$15-30 depending on what you eat.
RTE: All the time lor!
Location: Basement 5 of Resort Hotel, Genting Highlands. Directly opposite Theme Park Hotel.
What better way to end my Ipoh food spree with a write up on the night market or Pasar Malam of Ipoh. There are 2 different night markets… one is a lot bigger scale and caters more to the general public and it is at different location daily. The other one will be near Lou Wong Bean Sprout Chicken, permanently there and cater more for our muslim friends. So obviously I went to the former lah, and if I’m not wrong, they are always at Tesco area on Wednesday nights. Just ask around from the locals, they know which day is at where. 🙂
Rating: 4/5, Cannot eat in comfort but has a big variety of foods.
Taste: Not bad… don’t expect restaurant quality but it’s good fun.
Finally I’m clearing my back logs and now reached my Ipoh archives! If you have not been to Ipoh, Ipoh is a far north of Western Malaysia and about an hour from Cameron Highlands and 2 hours aways from KL and Penang. It is also known for many mountains surrounding the city and hence, very nice scenery. I was there for my recce trip for Care Givers Group (CGG) charity trip up to Ipoh in Dec and so I’m combining the pics from the 2 trips in Sep and Dec. Will also review and compare 2 of the so called best Bean Sprout Chicken there as well in later posts. So keep a look out for them!
Like what the locals say, if you haven’t tried Foshan, Bean Sprout Chicken or Ipoh Hor Fun in Ipoh, you have not been to Ipoh! This is a very very popular dim sum place among locals and also tourists. Even Hong Kongers who have been there say the dim sum is really good! So die die I must go try and check out the pics below!:
Rating: 5/5. Food is excellent, service is not bad. If you don’t speak cantonese, try mandarin. If not, you’re on your own. ;P
Taste: Put it this way; If I’m back in Ipoh, I must come here for my breakfast!
Portion: Above average.
Price: See pics.
RTE: Duhhh… Needless to ask.
Location: See last pic. If lost, all cab drivers know where Foshan is. If not, get out the cab and flag another cos most likely that driver is not local.
