Mikki G Restaurant (Formerly Home's Cafe) | D'piazza, Bayan Lepas

After Green Island western food restaurant, there is another newly open western food restaurant in Bayan Lepas area. It was formerly known as Home's Cafe, and now change to Mikki G. We managed to visit this place on last Friday, second day of the opening. 10% discount on all foods and it is applicable until end of April 2013. Heard that the chef is from Legend hotel in KL. The interior of the restaurant remained the same as previous and worker's uniform is still black in colour. Menu wise, they serve more on western food, including chicken chop, chicken cordon bleu, roast rosemary chicken, spegetti and etc. Lamb shrank is popular according to my colleague. Besides, the old menu "Local Delight" from Home's Cafe are still available.

 

James Foo Western Food | Tanjong Tokong Penang

James Foo western food is located in Tanjung Tokong Penang. I have heard of it's popularity since years ago, but have not find a chance to try it. Last two weeks, we have decided to go there for dinner. Without disappointment, we are quite satisfied with the food, on the portion and taste. We ordered steak without mentioned on how well we want the beef to be cooked. When the steak was served, we were surprised to see the steak was medium well cooked. We can still see blood came out from the beef, it was yummy.

 

Kaya Jam Recipe Using Breadmaker

Ingredients:1 cup Coconut milk1 cup Eggs(about 3-4 eggs)1 cup sugarFew pieces of pandan leaves Method:1. Pour all ingredients into breadmaker.(I like this recipe as it calls for 1 cup of each ingredient, so I can use the coconut milk box to measure sugar and eggs, just follow the proportion) 2. Select "Jam" function from breakmaker.3. Start jam making by press on "Start" button.4. Stir in between to ensure jam is well mixed (If needed).5. When done, remove kaya from breadmaker after it is slightly cool. Blend if you prefer soft and smooth texture. When taste, it is more towards "egg" taste, hence Camus added caramel to the kaya, and now it is almost similar to mom's version. Give this recipe a try, the outcome of this kaya will surprise you! Thanks to thelazychef for this wonderful recipe, you can find more tips from here.

 

Almond Nibs Biscuit Recipe

If you like almond and crispy type of biscuit, you will like this recipe. This is a very easy recipe with very simple ingredients. Do this especially when you have left over egg white as this recipe calls only for egg white without egg yolk. I will share the recipe with one egg white, just multiply the recipe with number of egg white if you want to do more.

SushiKitchen_2Being creative and innovative are the key to success in this world. If you can design or think of something new and special, and do something different compare with others, you can be very outstanding.

Last week, We visited a vegan sushi restaurant in Sg Ara.

 We make a reservation before dinner to avoid dissapointment as that day was Lunar 9th of September. We arrived there at 6.30pm, wait for few 10 secs in front of main door after pressed the door bell. After the door is open, we entered the restaurant with excitement, and start captured photo here and there. While we arrived at their counter, we stand at there for another few minutes, waiting for people to serve us.

After order foods, we started to look at restaurant deco. The restaurant environment is very comfortable and their deco attracted our attention. They used old furnitures, toys, clocks, coca-cola bottles and others for decoration.

For the food, we ordered:
G-ken Floss Fried Rice. For the first bite, I wondered why the chicken floss does not taste like chicken floss, oppsss, from there I just remembered I am in vegan restaurant. The "G-ken floss" is very chrunchy and prefect match with the fried rice, we would give it a thumb up!

Spicy Noodle
The noodle is "yee mee", and soup base is special and tasted like coconut curry soup. A little spicy.

Green Tea with RM2 can be refilled.

Life fruit is cherry tomato, with few cherry tomato, they charge for RM2, quite pricey huh?!

For sushi, we want to order Golden Age as this seem to be their famous sushi, but it was really a big dissapoinment when the waitress told us it was finished. How can it be? Well, for the first time visit, we don't mind to try other sushi, so we ordered Happiness Couple, the set came with 8 sushi, all tasted good but the wasabi not really fresh and no strong "spicy" taste.

We would strongly recommend you to give it a try, we like the food as well as the environment. Good place for gathering and chit-chating too.

However, the food is served very slow as they have only one waitress to do all the things including open door (their door is lock and after customers press door bell, the waitress will press remote control to open the door), taking food order, serving food, taking payment, attend to customers. Hope they will improve on the speed.

For exact location, here you go:

Closed on Tuesday.

Extra note to add on: written on 3 Nov 2011
I have re-visit Sushi Kitchen yesterday, during lunch time. We plan to go on Tuesday, but they were closed, hence we call them to make reservation for yesterday lunch. This time visit brought me a BIG DISSAPOINTMENT, almost near to TOTAL DISSAPOINTMENT to Sushi Kitchen.

As mentioned, we had called to make reservation for 4 persons, but when we arrived there, below is our conversation:
We: We called to make reservation yesterday, Miss XXX.
She went to check her list and replied,
Waitress: Sorry, don't have your name written in the reservation list.
Well, since there are still plenty of seats available,
We: It's ok, just let us sit anywhere, but we want table with chair, not tatami type.
Waitress: Sorry, all tables has been reserved.
What a big FxxK? Luckily we girls not wearing skirt today, or else...

While ordering food..........
(A,B,C and D refer to 4 of us)
A: I want spicy noodle.
Waitress: Sorry, we don't have spicy noodle today. Our spicy sauce is home made and already finished by popular demand since 2 weeks ago.
A: Then meaning all the menu with "chili" label are not available?
Waitress: Yes.
A: Then give me miso soup udon.
Waitress: OK.
B: I want enoki mushroom fried rice.
Waitress: OK, white rice or brown rice?
B: White rice.
C&D: Two seaweed fried rice.
Waitress: White rice or brown rice?
C&D: White rice.
A: Let's order some sushi...golden age sushi.
Waitress: Sorry, it's finished.
B: What? Now is only lunch time, finished?
Waitress: Yes, we use only special mango to make it, and we can't get the mango now.
A: Then let's choose for other set.
C: What is fruit plate?
Waitress: It is fruit of the day.
C: What is today's fruit?
Waitress: Sorry, no fruit today because yesterday is our off day.
A&B&C&D: ...................speechless)........................

After some while, the waitress walked back and told us:
Waitress: Sorry, bad news, no white rice already, do you want to change to brown rice?
B: OK, we change it to brown rice with white rice price, is that ok?
Waitress: Cannot leh...
B: Then??? We order so many things, but all are not available, then now white rice also don't have, you request us to change to brown rice, and charge us extra RM1, how can it be?
Waitress: Or do you want to change to mee or other thing else?
D: Ok la, change la...
B: I don't want mee...
Waitress: (Speak in english now, we were speak in manderin all the while) If you don't want to change, I also can't help, we really don't have white rice.
B: Ok la, brown rice la.
Waitress: OK.

**********************************************************
That's about our conversation, I really can't accept a restaurant works in this way, they can't even provide white rice, and it was not late night at that time, it was about 1pm only, how can the food finish so early? If your business is so good, you should prepare more and please remove your "golden age sushi" from your menu, or remark with some note like "seasoning food" or what...I don't think customers want to hear "sorry, golden age sushi is finished" everytime they visit, or "our home made chili is finished, no white rice, no fruit, no this, no that", almost half the menu items are not available.

With this kind of service and price, we were charge for service tax somemore, we feel that it is not worth at all lorrrrrr.

However, the fried rice taste not bad la...But the sushi are all wrap with carrot, cucumber and some vege only, I rather eat real sushi. Yell
