Might i interest you in a sumptuous meal of comfort food at a quaint little restaurant set in an old historic train station?
Yes? Well, let’s hit Livonia village at Livingston County! I heard this particular restaurant serves excellent and healthy food and it may be one of the best Rochester restaurants in the area. Besides the great food, the idea that it’s occupying and old train station is simply romantic as well; an exquisite combination of the old and the modern. It would be a perfect place for a couple’s night out or a warm family/friends gathering since the menu mainly stresses on sharing basis (although not compulsory).
I find it pretty unusual that they promote food sharing as oppose to normal fine dining or even casual restaurant that prepares dishes for individual. But when i say unusual i meant it in a good way. Coming from Malaysia, it is a norm for us to share so even at fine dining restaurants i have a tendency to share. Sharing is really quite perfect since it’s more economical plus everyone gets to taste what everyone else is having.
The restaurant offers plenty selection of delicious pizzas, tapas and some awesome unique choices of New American cuisines – the Rainbow Trout dredged in pumpkin seed flour before pan fried certainly caught my attention. What is more important is that the food comes from a sustainable source which means the ingredients comes from a nearby local farm and the menu changes with the seasons. That mostly guarantees that food will be the most fresh and healthy without growth hormones or anything chemical that might harm our body. Whatever it is, the price here is definitely reasonable.
As i’m perusing the menu, something else caught my eyes – the Woodfire Grilled Steak Pesto Pizza. This sounds both bizarre and absolutely wonderful. Now if you’ll excuse me!
Rainy days naturally calls for a meal of hot piping pot of steamboat. And what a wet season it had been, pouring even during CNY when it’s supposed to be the hottest season of the year! Someone made a joke on twitter that Kuala Lumpur is now known as Kuala LumPOUR. So clever LOL. Ok,
The weather is so unpredictable nowadays – cloudy and drizzling most of the days and blazing hot on somewhere in between. Today is the day when the sun decides to grace upon us sunshine and on days like this the first thing that comes to mind is a delicious and refreshing cup of frozen
The eateries in Publika are usually packed with patrons no matter the time. On many occasions we wanted to give the very popular Red Bean Bag cafe at try but we were totally put off by the queue. I seriously would never queue up for my food unless there’s a guarantee that the food
After few months of hiatus here i am again and just in time to wish everyone a Happy Chinese New Year & Gong Xi Fatt Cai! May the year of the Snake bring us health, happiness and prosperity! There will be less updates here because there are some vital changes going on and that
Restaurant Ah Koong with its polished signboard looked pricey. But given that it was almost tea time where most of the eateries are closed for break and we were in Pudu which means naturally parking space is really an issue, there isn’t any choice. Mission roast pork rice abandoned, we grab the first parking space
It’s weird. I never have this thing for loh mee and i definitely never crave loh mee ever and there i was on a Saturday morning thinking of a piping hot bowl of sticky loh mee. But alas, i only get to satisfy my craving the next evening due to the fact that the
Paradigm Mall is all the craze right now thanks to the scandalous social media incident that had gone viral some time ago. Instead of avoiding the mall like a virus until the coast is clear, it is typically Malaysian to flock to the mall to witness for themselves the “faults and failures and disruptions”
RM. Frea is a quaint little eatery located opposite road from Manohara Hotel (Borobudur). It is actually a residential courtyard converted into an eatery; the owner staying in the house behind the shop. It’s nothing posh or fancy just a regular eatery serving some light local eats like soto, gado gado, nasi
Day 2 visit to Yogyakarta brought us to the temple of Prambanan. It was beautiful albeit much smaller than i had expected; a proof of how photos could be deceiving. Probably took us not more than 2 hours exploring the temple and the vicinity. We had a lot of time to kill. Fortunately the
The very short trip down to Yogyakarta was way back in May. I almost forgot about it because it was just a 2/3 days stay and it wasn’t really very happening if you know what i mean. We flew in to visit the Borobudur and Prambanan temple and had some time in our hands
Oh is Kaki Bola XO Fish Head Noodle shop famous? I had no idea but apparently the original shop at Taman Segar, Cheras has quite some followers. Since then, Kaki Bola had opened a branch in Taman Paramount, PJ and in Bandar Menjalara, Kepong. Strange name for a Fish Head Noodle joint though. I
We intended to pay a visit to Dubrovnik Restaurant at Solaris, Mont Kiara but as luck would have it, it was closed when we arrived. I’m not sure if the restaurant will re-open because according to their facebook page the notice was posted on May. Now it’s July and it’s still not open for
The interior is furnished with shades of burgundy and canvas paintings of Italian taste liven up the wall. The lights are dimmed and candles placed on each tables creating a soothing ambiance. While it is far from posh and i’m not too crazy about the decor, the small restaurant certainly creates a comfortable atmosphere for
Move over Chatime, Share Tea is here to stay! Seriously the queue at Chatime is not getting any shorter. I’m impatient like that especially when it comes to my occasional bubble milk tea fix. One look at the crowd and that’s it; i’d rather head over to the nearest mamak for a quick hearty glass
Sawadee 88 Thai Village is very much similar to Fish Farm Thai Restaurant; both situated off the beaten track spots in Hulu Langat with roads leading to them, poorly lit, bumpy and narrow, both restaurants resembles a small Thai village with nipah/bamboo stilt huts surrounding a fishing pond and both serves authentic Thai Cuisine.
A craving for BKT no matter what time or day it is could easily be satisfied because Bak Kut Teh shops are of abundance in KL. Seriously, you’ll never be far from a BKT shop ever. Kepong alone has just so many of them i lost count. Quality BKT though is not as easy
It takes some getting used to Vietnamese Fine Dining. The Vietnamese food i know have nothing to do with fine dining at all. The time spent in Hanoi was strictly used to wolf down the many scrumptious street snacks and dining at small but quaint local eateries. In fact the only time we had
Zakuro comes highly recommended by the sister and HK, being regulars and all. Usually they would give the chef a budget so he could whip up something in the kitchen accordingly. One of their favorite Japanese restaurant, they come back with stories of wonderfully fresh sashimi and delicious udon; making my mouth water with
Gosh it’s been a while since an update had been made here. I’ve been swamped with utter nonsense and engulfed in so much bad luck you wouldn’t believe it if i told you and to top things off, i had gotten horrifyingly lazy – a combination befitting of a long, long hiatus. Well, i’m back…
Warm and nice cafe-styled restaurant that offers both Western food and a few Asian inspired dishes as well. The interior has an industrial feel about it, very chic yet exudes coziness; something i always look for when i subconsciously create my home dining space in my head. We were greeted with an apologetic smile as the place
Not really a flattering photo that we had taken but the real thing is delicious! It’s my Chocolate Tiramisu birthday cake from Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie. Extremely rich and lavished with gorgeous pieces of chocolates inside and out. I’m a little overwhelmed with the abundance of chocolates since i actually finished this 400g cake
Few weeks ago, there was a food programme on tele about pan mee. We came home and turned on the tv and there he was, Bryan Wong slurping away at some delicious looking pan mee. Don’t know who is Bryan Wong? This is he, the Singaporean actor/tv host. Oddly, he was introducing what
Ever a fussy fish head noodle eater, i will never order them unless it comes highly recommended. So for a long while, the only fish head noodle i am willing to have is those at Tao Xiang, which by the way i’m all praises. Norway Salmon Fish Noodle (i’m not sure if that’s the
Yi Yan Congee Restaurant had been around for ages although we had not visited it once. This is because they specialize in congee which is not what i usually would go out to eat since it’s so easy to cook myself. The shop is on the same row as its sister company which is
