Old Chang Kee curry puff

On the same day that I had my lunch in Bar B Q plaza, my friend told me to give Old Chang's Kee curry puff a try as well.The above is a photo taken from The curry puff itself costs RM1.50. Though it may sound quite expensive for your average curry puff. It's packed with potatoes as well as egg.. EGG!!.. ooh yeah... When you buy 6 of them , you'll get 1 FREE!! That's RM9 for 7 curry puffs. It was so good I had 2-3 of them. Really nice. (Sorry, I can't get a good picture of inside)

The package of OldChangKee.
Old Chang Kee is actually franchise founded by a Singaporean which had humble beginning like any entrepreneur I guess. Here's the story how it all started. According to the website, Old Changkee was awarded the Singapore Promising Brand Award and also the Singapore Heritage Brand Award in 2004 and 2005. Not bad at all .

Well, so far there's only 2 outlets in Malaysia: One in 1utama, another in BB Plaza. While most of them are located in Singapore. Here's a lists of their outlets. The 1utama outlet is located at lower ground floor, it's along the way to the food court of 1utama old wing. Shouldn't be hard to find. So, if you do stop by 1utama, or BB Plaza. You should give their curry puff a try.

here's the best photo that I manage take after.. "opening up" the curry puff.
Sorry. that's the best I can get. :(
If you guys have a better photo, do let me know, :P

Bar BQ Plaza

After waiting for like aeons to update my blog, I finally took the time to sit down to blog properly. and It's also my b'day today.

Why I didn't blog for so long, because I'm too lazy busy. :P

About a fortnight ago, after watching Rendition in GSC 1u(more on that in another post), we went to Bar-B-Q plaza for lunch. The steamcooker for the Bar-b-q.
Chopsticks and bowl used for eating.
Instructions on how to cook!!!!! (Well, you haven't seen these in any
steamboat restaurant before right?, not for me at least. The way to cook is actually place the lard on top of the cooker. Then , it will be followed by pouring in the soup after the lard is cooked. Then you can proceed to put in the barbeque ingredients , eg. pork, seafood, beef that you ordered.
Lard (pork fat) used for cooking.
The ingredients to mix with the barbeque sauce. On the top left is garlic, followed by lemon, chillies. The bowl, of course is the barbeque sauce.
Barbeque sauce. MIXED with the ingredients.

The Supreme pork set that we ordered for RM29.90. Ok lah. Looks quite a lot for around RM30.
Green tea tau fu RM4.Nothing special about it.
Hot honey lemon.RM4. The honey is sweet but just nice with the lemon. Definitely a must order in Bar-Bq plaza.
Red bean squash. RM4.My friend ordered this. Taste quite good too. Also another must try in Bar-Bq plaza.
The barbeque cooker with just the veggies. I'm not sure if we're supposed to cook the cabbage slices (very thin) because they are placed at below all the veggies and meat. or they are just part of the garnishing? Nevertheless we just shove everything to the cooker. The barbeque cooker with just the pork.

The black pepper udon noodles. Not spicy enough to my taste but still okay.

Altogether this meal costs us RM58.50. Just a little shy of RM60, although I'm not DAMN full but I think is satisfying meal.

Note: 1) Always take up the meat as soon as it's cooked, meat won't tastes very nice/tender
when it's overcooked.
2) Always soak the meat in barbeque sauce. ALWAYS. it tastes better.
