my Elephant Thai Restaurant @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

After going into a hiatus of posting food posts since work is piling up more than ever, I finally get a short break to catch up on all the leftover posts that I have not yet posted. Now, ever since my friend from KK arrived, we had a great Thai lunch in one of Klang Valley's hidden gem @ my Elephant!

Rice + Tom Yum Soup (RM11.90)
 As we arrived during lunch, we were handed out set lunch menu that ranges from RM 9.90 and includes a fresh pandan drink in every meal. After trying real authentic Tom Yum Soup in Bangkok, I decided to try their version of Tom Yum soup served with brown rice, sliced fruits, and Thai mango salad. The mango salad quite refreshing with a twist of spiciness and bold flavours.

Rice + Tom Yum Soup (RM11.90)
The Tom Yum soup however was made not as spicy as the real ones, but the flavours of the assorted seafood and spices really gives a kick in every sip I took. Thumbs up for this dish!

my Elephant's Pad Thai (RM9.90)
 Next, a simple representation of Thai laksa using Thai kuay tiao (taste like Lo Shu Fun) that was pan fried really well and topped off with spicy sour sweet sauce. My, they weren't kidding as it was spicy that empowers a strong flavour.

Fresh Panda Drink (included in set lunch)

Yum Mamuang (RM 10)

Of course, we have to add a side salad dish to add more greens in our tummy :P. This green mango salad was served with assorted seafood that were quite fresh and bathe with their secret chili dressing. This do taste similiar to the side salad served with our main dishes though.

Lunch time!


Overall, we had a great time as compared to commercialized Thai restaurant, my Elephant has lived up to its standard of flavour and authenticity. However, there is no Wifi here provided though. Will visit sometime again soon as it just nearby my place :D.

PastaPasta @ Gaya Street, Kota Kinabalu

If you are on a rush for lunch and having a tight budget, you can visit PastaPasta in Gaya Street that serves fast food pasta of your choice. Although the flavours were not really great, but for RM 6.50, its a bargain!

PastaPasta Menu
First, choose your type of pasta, then your sauce base, and finally your topping to toss the pasta in!

Deco

Rotini + Carbonara + Italian Sausage ( RM 6.50)
The pasta was undercooked as it was harder on the inside, the carbonara sauce was diluted where there is no creamy essence at all. Not a big fan of this.

Penne + Pesto + Beef Bacon & Mushroom ( RM 6.50)
This combo was quite nice as the taste was not so oily but quite refreshing, however the pasta should be cooked a little longer.

PastaPasta
Our verdict? Just plain jane if you are not a fussy eater but wants to fill up your tummy on a cheap price.

Address:
108, Gaya Street, 
Kota Kinabalu, Sabah,

Ichi Zen @ Tokyo Street, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

Initially, we had plans to have lunch in Suki-ya, Pavilion, BUT the long queue was just unbearable for us to wait. Hence, we decide to find another place in Tokyo Street and ended up in Ichi Zen as they have a variety of set lunch to choose from.

Ichi Zen

Ebiko & Chuka Kurage Sushi (RM 5.00)

Tamago Sushi (RM 1.50)
Simple sushi which you can order from the menu and the chefs will prepare it for your freshly.

Sashimi Set (RM 38.00)
A simple sashimi set that includes raw tuna, sashimi, salmon, octopus that comes with rice, miso soup, chawan mushi, and set dishes. It was alright in flavour and freshness for us.

Salmon Kabocha Korroke Set (RM 23.90)
A deep fried croquette to accompany the grilled salmon meal. It was crunchy and not so oily in the inside too.

Salmon Kabocha Korroke Set (RM 23.90)
This lemon dripped salmon was not my favourite as it was a wee bit dry in the inside.

Yaki Udon (RM 20.00)
The Yaki Udon was disappointing for us. I guess the flavour was overpowered by the saltiness that keeps accumulating as you chow down more on this dish.

Tonkatsu Set (RM 28.00)
Although this pork katsu was not comparable than the one I had in Kyoto, this pork katsu was overcooked and dry to the core! The meat was not juicy as it was tasteless and dry. Not to forget, the side dishes served in this set meal was of weird flavouring and taste. Definitely would not order this again.

Chawan Mushi (included in set lunch)

Our final verdict? Was not really impressed with their food quality as many other Japanese restaurants can do much better in taste and flavour. Definitely NOT in my must-try list.
