Calorie @ Sri Petaling

What can you do with pumpkin?!
We can have pumpkin tofu, pumpkin porridge, pumpkin steamboat, pumpkin desserts…. And also pumpkin fried rice.

Calorie is like the other Hong Kong Char Chan Teng; selling bun, burger, toast, soup noodles and rice, etc. Calorie is famous for their pumpkin fried rice. Their signature dish is the pork chop with pumpkin where the fried rice is served in the craft real pumpkin ‘bowl’.

I saw this place featured on 8TV Ho Chak programme and decided a visit with youngest brother.

We ordered papaya milk (RM3.90) and a pineapple and lemon juice (RM4.90) to quench our thirst. The papaya milk was a right choice while the pineapple and lemon juice is overpriced. One can just simply make it at home.

Pumpkin is always our love. We ordered the Cheese Pork Chop with Pumpkin.

It took them some times to prepare this in the oven. Have a look, the melted cheese over loaded on top of the fried rice and the pumpkin’s skin is baked into dried but golden brown.

Cheesy-licious

The pumpkin fried rice was fluffy but lack of wok hei and tad dry. We loved the baked pumpkin very much; finished up everything and left only the pumpkin skin.

Have a try if you are a pumpkin lover. Want to know more what’s on their menu?! Visit HERE.

there was once, we were rounding Seri Petaling and wondered what to eat!!!

ended up at Capri Dessert for the durian pancakes.
should've visited Calorie instead. but the place was rather empty, way before Ho Chak went though.

That is such a cool name for a restaurant, HEHEHE! Don't know if it defeats their agenda though - people will be reminded of the damage from eating pumpkin + rice!!

Sonia said...

The pumpkin rice look so yummy, even I'm not pumpkin lover..

j2kfm,
hmmm, my visit last time was quite empty but crowded after 8pm.
capri desserts? where is that???


simpleGirl,
yep, for the cheesy lover. if you don't like cheese, you can always opt for the one without cheese. :)

foodbin said...

nowadays,pumpkins are popular-with fried rice and cheese-creative.

kampungboycitygal said...

wow so interesting. is the fusion place nearby?

cariso said...

The pumpkin seving as the bowl looks 'healthy' but not the fried rice though. :)

Bangsar-bAbE said...

The name sounds so catchy! Looks like they were pretty generous with the cheese, too bad the rice was a bit dry...

ai wei said...

nic (khkl),
pumpkin is healthy but its sugar content is quite high too. never take too much. i love pumpkin cubes in the porridge. simple and easy
