Into the Doorway of Food, where it's all about Eating...
Let's start the journey into my world of food...
Different tastebuds with different tongues; you're the eater and you're the judge... What I share here is simply the passion towards food and drinks.

There's a wide selection of dishes that range from fish head, prawn, squid, beef, mutton to chicken. The specialty here is the jumbo sized seafood that is normally not offered in Nasi Kandar Restaurant. I think the Jumbo Fish Head is the most favourite for sharing with family. I've decided to take the Nasi Beriyani that is then topped with fried chicken, squid and long beans. Finally, the most important step is to flood the plate with various curry sauces. Just tell the boss "Banjir" and you'll get the rice in the "soup"... I'm shocked to see my jumbo squid and this plate has of courses cost me a tremendous amount, RM 17.70. Anyway, I've enjoyed the crispiness and juiciness of the fried chicken. The squid is slightly chewy but I'm in over all, quite comfortable with the taste of the Nasi Kandar here. The curry is not really too amazing but it's at least spicy.
We're just in time before the crowd. I think other than the jumbo size, I can't think of any other reason to queue here for the Nasi Kandar.

This is a simple cafe with a main counter for customers to place the orders and another side is the coolest spot in the Mugshot, the big and round stone oven that is used to bake the Bagel. The menu is as well short and precise, being categorised only into Yogurt, Drinks and Bagel.
Besides, they've as well made a marvellous yogurt. We've ordered the flavors of Jackfruit & Gula Melaka and Kiwi & Honey. The whitish yogurt has a nice "surface tension" that it's not too liquid and it's still very smooth. The yogurt is indeed quite sour and it's balanced by the sweetness of the Gula Melaka and the Honey respectively. Both of these types of "sugar" are not too sweet and this is definitely a healthy dessert that you'll enjoy without guiltiness. We prefer the Jackfruit & Gula Melaka as it's more special and I like actually the crunchiness of the Jackfruit with the chillness of the yogurt.
I'm impressed by the deliciousness of the Bagel and the Yogurt here, but they're definitely not the expert in Coffee. I'll change to Hot Chocolate on my next visit? I'll definitely be here again for tasting again.

Besides, we've also shared a Tiramisu. It's quite disappointing as this Italian dessert is not prepared in its genuine taste. It's too sweet whereby I think that it's lacking of the aroma and the taste of the Espresso. Only one small positive comment on the "balances" between the mascarpone cream and the finger sponge, whereby I've always preferred such thicker layer of cream than the cake.
The girls are not really recommending the main courses here. Anyway, from the quality of the dessert, I'll consider to try it at least once.
Choosing from the picture, we've decided to go for the crab with Sweet & Sour Sauce酸辣螃蟹. The crab is not so fresh that it seems to be the frozen type whereby it doesn't contain any "crabby" smell. Anyway, the sauce is quite delicious and it's good to go with the Fried Man Tou煎饅頭. On my request, we've ordered the Salt & Pepper Mantis Prawn椒鹽蝦蛄. I like the combinations of salt, pepper and chopped chili that have definitely added an appealing taste to the Fried Mantis Prawn. But, it's my mistake that the frying has killed the freshness of the meat and the flour coating will become very oily if we leave it too long in the air. This is applicable to the Fried Squid炸蘇東 as well. It's surprising us that the small plate of crispy fried squid costs RM 13.
The taste of the meal is acceptable but we girls think that the seafood here is actually quite pricey. It's not worthwhile for $$$ as we don't really get a superb and fresh seafood here.
