Wallop Pork Burger

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Fast Food

We stumbled across a new burger outlet while browsing around other food blogs. What caught our attention was the fact that these burgers are pork burgers!

Interior, Wallop Pork Burger
Located in SS2 in Petaling Jaya and along the same row as the ever famous Chow Yhang, Wallop Pork Burger was easy to find. The shop was nice and casual, with a typical fast food kind of décor.

Mama Combo, Wallop Pork Burger
The options include choosing the number of patties to have on the burger and then adding in extras such as bacon and mushrooms to the burger if that’s how you like it done. That day we had 2 burger combos (a set basically), the first being the Mama Combo which consists of a single patty pork burger, fries and a drink. A normal Mama Combo was priced at RM9.50, but we chose to add on extra cheese and mushrooms for RM1.30 and RM1.10 respectively.  We really liked the burger, the pork patty was succulent and flavourful and the combination of the mushrooms, cheese and the sauce in the burger itself made it irresistible!

Papa Combo, Wallop Pork Burger
We also tried the Papa Combo for RM12.90. The Papa Burger was a burger with 2 patties instead of 1 compared to the Mama Burger. Like the above, the Combo came with fries and a drink. We chose to have this burger with bacon and egg as the sides, priced at RM1.30 and RM1.10 respectively. We found this combination to be great! Definitely something we would come back for again!

Fries, Wallop Pork Burger
Each combo came with fries and we were quite surprised at how good the fries were. They were fresh and sufficiently thick, but not too thick they that were a chore to bite through. Best when eaten with the chilli sauce provided in the shop which we found to be rather good as well.

Wallop Pork Burger was a good discovery. We will definitely be back again for more of their pork burgers! We also want to try another item on the menu called the Hot Boy. It is supposed to be a spicy pork burger, which sounds really appealing to us. However, the owner said they only start serving that from 7pm onwards, so it looks like we’ll just have to go back again for dinner!

Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Japanese Food

Around two months ago, we met up and celebrated one of our best friend’s birthday in Poco Homemade, Bangsar. Although one of us lives in Bangsar, we have never been to this place until then.

Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier, Bangsar
The café looks nice and cosy from the outside, with simple and delightful decorations.

We arrived early and the place was rather empty. We took the chance to take more photos as our friends have not arrived as well.

Interior, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
The family-run establishment was clean, bright and comfortable. Other than food, the restaurant displays and sells a number of handmade craft and sewing. There were a number of lovely artworks, sketches and clothes which decorated the restaurant.

We definitely enjoyed the ambience of this place. It was peaceful and tranquil.

Soy Green Tea, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
When our friends arrived, we placed our orders. We ordered a cup of warm Soy Green Tea for RM5. The soy green tea was excellent. It was sweet but not too overwhelming, healthy and flavourful with soy milk taste. It was so good that we ordered another one.

Chicken Roll, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
Poco’s menu was rather limited, however, they focused on serving healthy and simple Japanese meals which we thought was nice and homely. Since there were five of us in total, we ordered food to share. We had their Chicken Roll for RM11.80. It was a nice and simple snack to begin the meal.

Cold Soba Noodles with Fried Ebi, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
As for our mains, we had a Cold Soba Noodles with Fried Ebi. Priced at RM15.80, it was simple but at its best.

Chicken Katsu Curry Don, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
We also had a Chicken Katsu Curry Don with Miso Soup for RM14.80. The curry wasn’t spicy and it was nice and fragrant, best when eaten with white rice. The chicken katsu was deep fried until golden brown, very crispy and delicious and also not too oily.

Our friends had a Chicken Katsu Don priced at RM12.80 and they seemed to be happy with their order.

Soba Noodle Soup, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
Photographed above is their Soba Noodle Soup priced at RM10.80.

Homemade Tofu Cake, Poco Homemade, Café & Atelier
We were intrigued by their Homemade Tofu Cake and decided to order one. Priced at RM8, I loved the cake, it was soft and smooth, light and melts in your mouth. However, my better half preferred it to be sweeter.

Overall we enjoyed dining in Poco Homemade a lot. If you’re looking for a place where you can sit back and relax with simple and healthy homemade food, this would be the right place for you!

We are both big fans of Pontian-style wanton noodles, having had it from time to time in another shop in Kuchai Lama (which we have yet to blog about).

Interior, Pontian Wanton Noodles
So when we had plans to go to SS2 in Petaling Jaya one day, we did not hesitate to give this chain of Pontian Wanton Noodles a go.

Wantan noodles in chilli and black sauce, Pontian Wanton Noodles
A firm favourite of ours in the Kuchai Lama outlet has to be the noodles in chilli and black sauce (辣椒酱跟黑酱). Naturally, we had to try the same in this Pontian branch. Priced at RM4.50 for a small bowl, it came with the usual accompaniments; a few slices of char siew, 2 small fried wantons, vegetables and a bowl of soup with two small boiled wantons inside. We find that the focus on the Pontian-style wanton noodles will be mainly on the noodles and the sauce as the accompaniments are usually small and not spectacular. In this instance, we thought that the noodles were simply alright. It had a hint of spiciness which was what the sauce was supposed to be, but the noodles itself just lacked that springy texture that would have made it good.

It was not bad at all by far, but we still prefer the Pontian noodles in Kuchai Lama. Oddly enough, the outlet in Kuchai Lama has many similarities to this Pontian chain, even the menu, but we understand that it is not part of this chain of Pontian Wanton Noodle restaurants. Nevertheless, we shall endeavour to update the blog on the Kuchai Lama outlet for all to see!

On a bright and cheerful Saturday afternoon, we ventured into the Petaling Jaya area for some food exploration. Famous Seremban Favourites have been on our food list for quite a long time and we finally decided to visit them for the first time.

Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites
Located in the Sunway Mas Commercial Centre, the area was completely alien to us, however, it was quite easy to find with Vkeong’s GPS coordinates.

Interior, Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites
We were not surprised to find the place being crowded with a number of patrons when we arrived during lunchtime. Yet service was fast and we were seated very soon.

Char Siew, Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites
The most popular item in this restaurant is their Char Siew. Priced at RM14, we ordered a plate of the medium sized Char Siew. It was excellent, easily the best Char Siew we’ve had in town so far. We loved how the caramelised pork dissolved in our mouth when eaten, and how well the sweet complimentary sauce blends along with it. It was so flavourful and addictive, so good that you can eat it on its own. We will definitely return for more!

Wan Tan Mee, Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites
Next up, we had a dry wan tan mee to share. The small portion was priced at RM4.30 and we thought it tasted quite good. The Char Siew was the best part though, be it wan tan mee or plain white rice, it tasted amazing!

Hakka Mee, Restoran Famous Seremban Favourites
We also had their specialty which is their Hakka Mee. Also priced at RM4.30 for a small plate of Hakka noodles, the yellow, egg noodles were topped with generous minced pork and chopped spring onions. It could be rather bland to some, but it was simple and delicious to us, we particularly enjoyed the springy texture of the broad noodles and the naturally sweet minced meat.

No doubt this is one of the best Char Siews we’ ve had in our life so far, and we’re not exaggerating! Do check it out if you’re a pork lover, this place would definitely satisfy your cravings!

OM Burger

Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food

It seems like the art of the Ramly burger is exclusive to Malaysia. We didn’t manage to find anything  close to it while we were in the UK and all attempts at reproducing it at home just do not seem to have that “oomph” factor.

OM Burger Stall, Selangor
It is likely that we have found the master of this art, in front of a 7-11 outlet in Ampang.

Patties cooked in Margarine, OM Burger
While it doesn’t look like the healthiest thing around, it really doesn’t matter! If you insist on having peace-of-mind, would it help to know that the pool of oil is margarine as opposed to butter? Haha!

Various meats, OM Burger
The various meat were fried in the same pool which infused a mouth-watering  flavour into all of them!

Oblong Kambing Special, OM Burger
We had an Oblong Kambing Special for RM7.50 that day. It was simply the best! We don’t know what his secret is. It could be the generous amount of margarine or the amalgamation of sauces on the end product, but whatever it is, it tasted absolutely brilliant! The lamb still had a gamey taste as well which wrapped up an already good burger.

Ayam Special, OM Burger
We were not going to be satisfied with just one of this amazing burger, so we tried the Ayam Special as well. Priced at RM4.00, it was equally as good as the Oblong Kambing. Definitely a good alternative to those who do not enjoy the gamey taste of certain types of meat.

The verdict? OM Burger is probably the best burger stall we’ve had so far. Yes, the burgers look very sloppy and messy and yes, it doesn’t look very healthy, but they are absolutely delicious! This is definitely not one to be missed!
