Well, I was lucky enough to get to eat at 3 different restaurants ,which were actually pretty good!
Me: “What’s for lunch today?”
Friend:”We are going to fish”.
Me:”You mean fishing?”
Friends in unison: “No… FISH!!!”
This place use to be a shack, under a tree. However they recently moved to a cleaner, better more comfortable coffee shop environment, not too far from the old place.
There are other dishes too, but I have not posted them because whilst they are good, we can also get them in KL.
So, eat the fish! Don’t miss out!
Next stop.. TEA,
at Soon Chiang!
Wow! JB people can really eat. My first meal is still digesting, but my mates assure me that it’s time to eat again.
I look skeptical. Isn’t the best Bakuteh found in Klang..?
10 minutes into the eating, I realise that, man, this bakuteh is really rather good. The sauce is as thick as blood, but the most outstanding thing is the amount of herbal ingredients they put into their cooking. This bakuteh has a strong pungent herbal aroma, boarding on bitter. It takes getting use to, but you’ll get the hang of it. This thing is addictive.
No complaints here.
Hmmm, 2 out of 2. I wonder if JB will continue to impress…
What will the evening have in store, i wonder…
Welcome to… THE ZONE. Just like being in “the zone” eludes to being in some form of altered state of consciousness or other,
the booze here is so cheap, that many actually reach “the zone” far too quickly:P
This area, Stulang Laut (or more famously known as EDEN), has mushroomed into the most happening nightclub/party spot of JB.
Apparently the KTV lounges have an entry fee of RM2K, and no less.
No wonder the Benz and the BMW line the front porch of the clubs.
Anyways, we were here to have drinks at the trendy Cabana.
Wait a minute.. what’s this….
There seems to be some pageant rehearsal going on.
Miss World? Miss Universe??
“I’m too sexy for my love, to sexy for my love… Loves gonna LEAVE me…”
(sung to the tune of that ridiculous 1992 song by Right said Fred)
“I’m a model and I do what i want, I shake my lil‘ Toosh on the catwalk… ”
We had a grand old time.. we did. (laughing)
Too bad it was the rehearsal, apparently they take off their shirts on the “real night”. Ooooo, we really wanted to see em without their Tee’s on… (not)
So, the finger-food here was so-so. Rather stale if you ask me.
The pizza we ordered from next door was just OK.. but better than the finger food.
However, the beer was nice. Went down well it did.
OK, so enough laughing (at other people’s expense)… what’s for dinner?
Me:”What’s for dinner?”
Me:”French loaf? French toast? French fries?”
Friend”No, french!” (rolls eyes)
I like this place.
We should stay here for a bit:)
What a nice end to the night!
Great food, great company and that aged but reliable tipple.. heart-warming indeed
