Then had Cendol for dessert. This is my First Ever Dessert Post For This Blog.

Then came the fun part.

Hokano Japanese Restaurant @ Damansara Uptown

I felt sorry for my stomach because I made it take in the lousy western food, and I also had the urge to eat Japanese Food. So I went to Hokano Japanese Restaurant for dinner. Went lurking around the whole Uptown looking for decent Japanese Restaurants. Other than Wassabi, Umai-Ya, Ramen... I found this cozy looking small japanese restaurant - Hokano Japanese Restaurant. Went in, sat down, got a very nice and friendly waitress serving us. We took like for-ever to choose what to eat.

The Ala Carte Nigiri Sushi List

The Prices Of The Ala Carte Nigiri Sushi, it's Price Per Piece.

Ocha - Japanese Green Tea.

Nice Plates.

Then came the first dish

Salmon & Avocado rolls (top), Eel & Cucumber rolls (bottom)

Both tasted great! The salmon was very fresh, you could just feel it's softness.

Ratherly unique looking California Rolls. Crab meat inside, black sesame seeds and fish eggs outside. Tasted good, I think it's my first time having this type of California Rolls.

Something that got me piping all night. =)

My Main Course, Chicken Katsu Don. Tasted good nevertheless. The chicken was made till just nice, tender.

Every Main Course comes with a Miso Soup, one of my favourite type of soup.

Tempura set, the prawns taste good, very fresh. Oh and it came with a BIG Onion Ring

The sauce/dip to go with the Tempura.

Some fish that we ordered too. It's a main course. It was grilled to perfection. The skin tasted salty because it was covered in salt while grilling, took the fishy smell away.

It was a very filling meal. and if you ever go there, the prices are all Nett Prices. Something you don't see everyday.

Lunch @ Arena Food Court, 1 Utama

Notice: From now on, I'm not going to watermark my pictures anymore. And, this is the first ever time I'm writing a review on lousy food.

Had lunch at Arena Food Court in 1 Utama yesterday. It has been awhile since I last ate there, and since everyone wanted to eat there, we took a shot and went. ALL of us regretted eating there. Their food price had raised like mad, and the food quality dropped down to Economy food standard. Before we headed to Arena, we stopped by Starbucks to get a drink and chit chat.

Mocha Frappucino With Cream and Chocolate Powder.

Soon, we headed for lunch. We were like Ini-Mini-Miney-Mo, didn't know what/where to eat. At first it was Seoul Garden, then Fishing Village, then JJ' Super Sandwich, then Arena Food Court. But soon after ordering our food, we regretted eating there.

My main course - Fish & Chips from Wagon Grill. The name sounds so Western-ish, but being taken care by malays that don't really know how to prepare western food properly. It's RM10.90 for 2 small pieces of hard fish, they must have kept the fish for quite some time, very little fries. 1 of the worst western food I have ever eaten. After tax = RM11.45, Even my previous post on Phang's Western Food, the food taste better, bigger, and obviously CHEAPER.

Clarence ordered Black Pepper Sauce Chicken Chop from the same place. Price was the same, serving was also more or less the same size, small. The chicken chop was barely a centimetre thick. It was dry, burnt and tasted like it was kept in the refrigerator for too darn long before grilling it. The black pepper sauce was also too dialuted.

Jensen ordered Roasted Chicken Rice from one of the shops, and when it reached the table, I was like:" Is that Economy Rice?". Turned out to be Expensive "Economy Rice". RM5.50
for a plate of chicken rice with VERY little chicken. And RM5.50 is without tax, FYI.

Uptown Square Food Court @ Damansara Uptown

Finished dinner at a night mamak/food court in Damansara Uptown just now. I have been eating at that night mamak/food court almost every 2 weeks since I was a little kid. One stall I have always visited at least once everytime I eat there is Phang's Western Food. Their western food is cheap, big, tasty. There is probably around 10 western food stalls there but I seldom visit those because it's either their food is not as tasty as Phang's Western Food, or their portion is small, OR their price is higher. I think Phang's Western Food is the cheapest, biggest portion and tastiest among all western food stalls.

I ordered a Honey Lemon Lime Juice as you all know I lost my voice during the hike yesterday. Thanks to Lim Yi May a.k.a The Almighty New D.O. for advising me to take warm honey water. The juice had a sweet,sour and salty taste because the honey gives the sweetness, lemon gives the sourness and the lime gives the saltyness, definitely loved it.

Other than the juice I ordered, I also ordered a Teh Tarik.

Then my main course came. The Mushroom Sauce Chicken Chop from Phang's Western Food. Tasted as good as a "very good tasting, big sized portion of western food for only Rm7.50".

The close up picture of the Mushroom Sauce Chicken Chop. It's big sized and really thick. Definitely the best RM7.50 western food I have ever had.

I also ordered a Fish & Chips. For RM7.00, you get a big piece of Fish and alot of Chips. It also comes with Baked Beans, Coleslaw, An Egg And 2 pieces of buttered bread.

I Ordered a Naan as a side dish.

We felt like having Cockels so we ordered a plate. Cockels are tasteless and you'll have to dip the sauce to indulge it.

There you go. The Chilli sauce for being dipped by the Cockels. The red coloured sauce is the Chilli sauce, the black coloured sauce is Sweet sauce, and there is peanuts in the middle of the both sauces.

Passing By Restaurants Reviewed By People

I had my 10KM Scouts Hike today. Other than resisting the heat from the blazing hot sun, I was so lucky to pass by a restaurant recently reviewed by Benghan from It is located at Seksyen 17. My Elephant Thai Restaurant & Cafe.

It is located beside Sekolah Kebangsaan Seri Damai if I am not mistaken (Maybe I was too high from the heat that time).
Other pics and post of my hike should be in Benghan's blog if nothing goes wrong, because I am a guest blogger for his blog. =)

Golden Hills Instant Mash Potato - Four Cheese

It's a ratherly odd time to blog now. As I am typing my blog I am eating Golden Hills Instant Mash Potato, Four Cheese flavour as my supper. There are other flavours like Butter & Herb, Roasted Garlic, Loaded Baked and this Four Cheese (No Cheez this doesnt taste like you either). Pics are fresh so enjoy.

The packaging. It comes in a pack of 10 when you buy it. But that is IF you ever get it in Malaysia.

Every pack of 10 will have a cup with the water measurements for the amount of hot water to put into the cup before pouring the mash potato powder in.

It's good for a snack, for a supper or etc.

p.s You can only get this in Singapore.
