WG Vegetarian Assam Laksa

My friend decides that she will eat at BMS Organics regularly perhaps even weekly but because her favourite dish (vegetarian bak kut teh) is not in the "member eat free" promotion menu, she did not sign up as a member.

We shared a plate of okras with sesame dressings (11 okras) which costs only MYR 8 nett because it is ordered from the add-on menu. Its normal price is MYR 10.90 nett.

My lunch - assam laksa at MYR 12.90 nett. The broth is very tasty I must say - full of various spices which I cannot identify. My mouth does not feel that it is spicy but my stomach was burning when I finished eating this dish. 

I believe that the fake fish is made from mushrooms. Vegetarians who do not eat onions may request for the onions to be omitted. There are cubes of pineapples and lots of shredded onions, cucumber and lettuce.

Bill for 2 pax is MYR 41.80 nett. 

The new compact menu that I mentioned previously.  Please click on it for a larger image and if you look hard enough, you may just be able to read the name of the dish and its listed price.

This is the back page of the menu with drinks. Please click on it for a larger image. The next time I eat here, I must remember to take a photo of the add-on menu.

Another visit - Curry noodle cooked with soy milk instead of coconut milk so it tastes creamy too which I find tasty. At MYR 18.90 nett, it is more expensive than the Assam Laksa because it has brinjal, long bean, potato, sprouts and fake meat balls made from mushrooms.

Lei Cha again at MYR 20.90 nett.

Previously I did not show the colour of the lei cha (tea) so here is it. Not very green so I believe the colour is all natural. My family agreed that it does not taste bitter and they can detect the taste of basil so they like it.

WG After 3 years

I always ask for my dessert to be served at the same time as the main dishes. My bowl of cendol at MYR 5.50 nett and Pai Tee (5 little hats) at MYR 6.50 nett to be shared by the two of us.

My half eaten cendol with my newly served Nyonya Curry Laksa at MYR 8.50 nett. We requested for Mee Hoon (Rice vermicelli) only and I like that the Mee Hoon is very, very soft so that it soaks all the creaminess of the curry broth.

My friend wanted to eat lunch at Baba Low's and since the only time I ate here was back in 2014, I agreed to join her. Bill for 2 pax is MYR 32 nett. Food tastes nice so we may be back for more.

WG Good But Hot Not Spicy

Prawn Mee - MYR 6.50 nett at the Chow Yang Coffee Shop, SS2, PJ. I like it because it is not spicy but my friend thinks it needs to be more hot and spicy to taste good. The pork slices look more like those in pork noodles. They are not those very thin and lean pork slices one usually find in Penang Prawn Mee but to me, this prawn mee tastes very nice.

I returned on another day to try the Mee Jawa at also the same price of MYR 6.50 nett.

Looks like it has a lot of ingredients. So tasty until I finished up the gravy.

Pieces of squid (sotong) hidden under the lettuce.

My friend had this plate of char kway teow at MYR 6.50 nett too. 

We will frequent this place to try the food from the other stalls though the weather is hot and I was sweating profusely when I was eating the Mee Jawa.

WG Set Lunch 33 36 39

My friend suggested going for lunch at this Japanese restaurant that she has read about. The napkin is folded nicely and placed on the plate. A cup of green tea at MYR 2++ (10% service charge and 6% GST so it is MYR 2.35 nett).

I believe she is here for this nice green refreshing view.

She chose to sit at this area where there is a sunken area below the table for guests to put their legs as most local guests are not accustomed to sitting on the floor. 

We ordered from the set lunch menu where there are 3 sections with dishes listed under each section. 
For MYR 33++, one can choose 2 dishes from section A where guests are not allowed to choose the same dish twice. 
For MYR 36++, one can choose 2 dishes from section B or (1 dish from section A and 1 dish from section B). 
For MYR 39++, one can choose 2 dishes from section C or (1 dish from section B and 1 dish from section C).
Since my friend wanted to eat here, I let her select all 4 dishes as we are having 2 sets and we will share all the food and split the bill equally in half. This mini chawan mushi is included in the set lunch.

Grilled Teriyaki Saba and Vegetables Tempura from Section A.

Buttered scallops and assorted mushrooms stir-fry from Section B.

Only 3 small scallops. I ate one and my friend ate two.

The portion of mushrooms is quite small too.

Soup, rice and pickled vegetables are included in the lunch set.

A total bill of MYR 86.10 nett so it is MYR 43.05 nett each. I believe this place is better known for the fresh raw food from the ala carte menu. This restaurant is located in a separate building but still in the grounds of Holiday Inn Express Hotel (used to house ING before they sold their business in this country to AIA).

WG Pandan Rice

Lunch Set - Nasi Pandan Rempah Fish - MYR 18.55 nett with a free drink. I like the fresh chili paste on top of the okras because it is not very spicy and it tastes very refreshing.

This is the amount of food that I kept for my dinner before I start to eat because I know from looking at the amount of food on the plate that I will not be able to finish it.

Bill for 2 pax: MYR 37.10 nett at Restaurant Peranakan Place at One Utama. My friend had the chicken version of my lunch.

Is this eatery under the same chain as the one with the same name located in Nu Sentral, KL? I believe that it is the same franchise but operated by a different franchisee.

WG Chicken Pineapple Rice

My friend told me that there is a hawker stall that sells delicious western fare in this coffee shop that she frequents but I don't eat western fare in coffee shops so I chose chicken rice with no sauce and half a portion of rice at MYR 5.5 nett for my lunch. I bought a slice of pineapple from another stall at MYR 1.5 nett and ate it together with the chicken meat and rice. Tasty! All for a total of MYR 7 nett.

This is the coffee shop - Yu Yiee at Damansara Jaya.

GS Beef rendang

One day at about 12.30 noon, we went to Warung to have our usual Nasi Lemak Beef Rendang only to be told that their Nasi Lemak has sold out so they suggested that we eat Beef Rendang mixed rice instead. I forgot how much this meal costs but it should be between MYR 14 to MYR 20.

Plain white rice, Beef Rendang, mixed vegetables stir-fry and a small piece of omelette for two pax. Tasty!
