Dai Be 大鼻 Fish Head @ Taman Connaught, Cheras

I never know the existence of this good stall for steamed fish.
Until Chris recommended it to me.

Located just 5 minutes drive from my house.
Tuck inside You Lee Kopitiam, it actually draws a lot of patron over during lunch hours.

It was really a coincidence; i bumped into Chris&Christine and her parents over there!


大鼻 Dai Be is the name for this steamed fish head stall.

There are 4 types of steamed fish head available :

- Signature steam - with chinese wine
- Ginger steam
- Preserved vegetable steam
- Fermented bean paste steam - infused with some Thai Style. 


Steamed Fish Head  with Preserved vegetable (RM 21)
with a hint of sweetness from the preserved vegetables, has brought out the freshness of the fish


Steamed Fish Head with Fermented Bean Paste (Thai Style) (RM 21)
Very flavoursome; loaded with lots of gravy. The level of spiciness was just right - not too spicy and not too sweet. I could have bowls of rice with just the gravy itself.



Bean Curd and Yin Choi both priced at RM 5
I have to say, The bean curd is overpriced!!! @@ 

The fish heads are huge and the priced for the steamed fish heads is reasonable. Tastewise, I love the way they prepare the gravy and sauces for the fish. However, there was a lil light muddy taste in our steamed fishes. 

by the way, if you have any good recommendation on Steamed fish to go for?! do let me know :)

Ramadhan Santapan Buffet @ The Living Room, Westin KL

During Christmas, we have turkey and log cakes and ginger bread man cookies.
During CNY, we have mouth watering chinese cuisine such as yee sang, seafood, sea cucumber...
During Duan Wu festival, we have dumplings and ba chang(s)

and this month, we have lots of yummies from our Malay friends - ayam golek, popiah, assorted kuih, cendol, murtabak, satay, rendang, lemang, curry ikan, ayam... 

Just limited to those?! 

Why not breaking fast with "Ramadhan Santapan" buffet in Westin KL at The Living Room?!



Before breaking fast, be sure to cleanse your palate with the refreshing zam zam water imported from the wells of Mecca. 

The zam zam mineral water was discovered in the middle of the desert in Mecca, the holy land of Islam, 2500 years ago. Scientifically proven to contain healing qualities due to the high content of calcium and magnesium salts as well as natural fluorides that encompass germicidal action.  


and so, let's berbuka puasa together and feast on an array of signature dishes prepared by the chefs

De-stress @ Yogitree, The Gardens

Stressful Max!!!


The only remedy - dining out with the gals

We chose to dine in here for a real de-stress remedy like what we did last time.


We ordered this again as we love the flavourful light cream sauce drenched on the spaghetti - Al Funghi with Mushrooms and Ceps in Light Cream Sauce and Truffle Oil (RM 23); sadly, it was quite bland and we had to season it with salt and pepper :(


Grilled Organic Chicken on Toasted Ciabatta with basil mayonnaise and tomato salsa (RM 20). Bread was freshly toasted and spreaded with real butter; sandwiched the organic chicken and green. something healthy for us!
