Wisma Food Court

Had a late breakfast yesterday at Wisma Food Court, for those who has not visited Wisma, you would be surprised by the new interior of the place. Many of the old stalls had moved away and was replaced by new vendors, you can still find the same food at these new stalls like western food, chicken rice, Chap Fan, Malay mix rice and such, however, the taste are all different now. The interior design has a oldies vibe which takes you back to the good old days, there are many details that can be seen around the food court now.

I used to go there often during my college days with my class mates, we would usually order Ban Mien, I never tried any other Ban Mien except from one of the stalls there. So after they moved away, I have desperately tried to find a replacement for my Ban Mien cravings, I have found one in Inanam, will blog about it in the near future. But if anyone knew where the previous Ban Mien stall moved to, please, please tell me, I missed their seafood soup base. Another one of the stalls I frequented is the Malay rice stall near the exit, their baby kailan is my absolute favorite, I have not find a restaurant that cooked a better kailan. Me and my classmate would happily devour a plate of rice with nothing but kailan as accompaniment. Alas, they moved away after the renovation, wonder where they are now, I hungered for a good kailan. I knew the vegetarian stall moved to Gaya street together with 5 Star Chicken Rice and the drinks stall, while the Western Food stall- Burger and Pizza moved over to the new food court, also on the same floor as this food court. (will blog about that as well, do be patient)

Have I bored you with my ramblings? Go on, you may now feast your eyes with some pictures I've taken.

Love this the most

 The portion of the fish and chips are huge.

Chicken rice, so-so to my standards. I still prefer the previous chicken rice stall from 5 Star Chicken Rice. They moved to Gaya Street and has opened a few other branches in Suria Sabah and City Mall...

As for the fried dumpling, the fillings could be more generous, but overall, it is tasty enough. The stall owner's young son was quite hardworking, trying to get people to order their dumplings. He might be around 8 to 9 years old, quite chubby and adorable, we couldn't resist ordering from him.

Koryo Jeong Korean Restaurant

 Last night we dined at the Koryo Jeong Restaurant at Warisan Square. This one is ran by a friendly Korean couple, the food are always good, which keeps us coming back for more.

Cute stove for grilling.
 Like any other Korean restaurants, diners are served with a variety of appetizers, my favorite are the greens.
Preserved bitter gourd,  greens, Kimchi and some shredded sausage thingy. 

What we ordered:
Korean Style Bacon, a must ordered every time we dined here. You can see a piece of fat (top right hand corner) was used to oil the grill before the bacon was placed on it. 
Korean style bacon- RM28

Korean Style BBQ Beef- RM30

Stone Pot Bibimbap- RM20
Mix well together with sesame oil and hot sauce

Short Rib soup- RM20

This is the rice that goes with the Short rib soup.
 They usually served white rice, but this time its brown rice mixed with barley. The owners did asked us if that was okay.
Bacon is done and cut into pieces.

The Korean Style bacon.

The bacon taste best with this Sesame oil with salt and pepper dip.

Chilled buckwheat noodle- RM22
Green Onion Pancake- RM18
The meal was great as usual, however due to the shortage of workers, there may be a short delay. Fortunately we are not that hungry at that time, so its fine with us. The humble owners kept apologizing about the wait and promised better service next time. We're not going to hold that against them, good food are worth the wait. Here are some of the other dishes we ordered last time, which I didn't yet have a chance to post:
Kimchi, greens, radishes, been sprouts and cucumbers

Ginseng chicken soup

Look at the ginormous ginseng

A light sprinkling of salt makes the ginseng go down easier

Do go give them a try if you have the chance.

Lots of love,

Hello, thanks for dropping in.

After many years of procrastinating, I've finally gotten a blog started. I feel obliged to start with a short introduction about this blog.  This will be a space where I'll be sharing things that I liked, my rants and raves, thoughts and everyday life.

I will try to update often and hopefully I might be able to get you coming back for more.

Thank you,
Lady G
