Gluttony Friday

Teambsg, please believe me that I'm a glutton...haha =)
Apologies for not feeding you all with food pics recently as I have just moved to a new company @ Damansara Heights, near Nigel's new shop btw. Of course I still pig out as usual, took lotsa food pics...finally with my camera, so no more blurry handphone camera pics. Stay tuned!
Friday 25 May
Lunch @ Albert's Cafe, Hartamas
The good thing bout my new job is that I get 2 hours lunch break every Friday, yippee... as this will allow me to do more food hunts during lunch time.
Last Friday, the three of us--tankiasu, char siew bao and me, a.k.a 'Damansara Heights corporate slaves' (named by tankiasu) met up @ Hartamas for lunch.
We walked past this Albert's cafe located @ a quiet corner with no other patrons and thought of giving it a try. Good for taking food pics actually without attracting unwanted attentions.
All of us ordered the value set lunch, priced @ RM13.90. We took up all the 3 varieties available, ie Sandwich set, Chicken set and Lamb set. All sets come with a soup as starter and a glass of lime juice.

Tankiasu commented that this pumpkin apple soup had a weirdo medicine taste :I For me, the combination was rather extraordinary, pumpkin soup base with apple chunks? err....btw, I didn't finish off the soup.

Tankiasu having his medicine soup. Casual outfit for him since it was Friday dress down day.

Casual outfit for char siew bao since it was his curi tulang day. Oopppsss...I mean off day.

No pics of xiu long bao since nobody offered to take pic for me.

My Chicken Panini Sandwich with salads and roasted potatoes. The portion is big enough to feed one glutton.

Char siew bao's Grilled Chicken with Napoletana sauce. He commented that the sauce tasted exactly like pasta sauce.

Tankiasu's lamb moussaka which looks like lasagne. The minced meat are layered in between cheese and aubergines. Interesting.

My dessert--Apple crumble with vanilla ice cream. I finished off the ice cream and left the rest to char siew bao....the apple crumble was microwave heated and it doesn't taste that nice too.

Paying @ the counter. Looks like they were having a serious discussion..haha

Meeting adjourned @ 2pm but we were not done yet...

Dinner @ Jalan Alor

Tankiasu asked us to join him, kampungboy and citygal for dinner/supper @ Jalan Alor later the day. The tentative plan was to meet up @ 8.30pm, called up tankiasu but he was still in the office, while kampungboy and citygal were busy packing things as they were evicted by the owner right after their exams ended.

Till 9.30pm...Our stomachs were already growling so CSB and I headed off to Jalan Alor for dinner first.

We were scratching our heads on where to have dinner...and then....*ding* I recalled that precious pea and friedchillies have reviewed bout this Restaurant Muar earlier on and I was craving for some icy cold chendols too on that hot day so we decided to give it a try.

cosy ambiance...

RM1 chendol!!! So cheap and delicious too! I can have 3 bowls of this actually.

Sambal petai + sotong + prawns (RM16). This dish was recommended by the owner, one of their 'must-try'. Thumbs up for this as the homemade sambal was very yummy to go with petai, sotong and prawns.

Authentic muar otak-otak. Served steaming hot with a dollop of sambal. Again a great dish, the best otak-otak I have tasted so far.

Simple stir-fried french beans like this were surprisingly delicious too!

It was already 10.15pm after we had our dinner but kiasu, kampungboy and citygal were only on their way to Jalan Alor. 15 mins later we decided to leave since we have nowhere to go. Actually I was very concerned bout our safety while loitering along the street, having heard of all the snatch theft cases.

Finally, the end of my gluttony day...

kampungboy n' citygal: Good to know that you two are joining the Damansara Heights corporate slaves group later when you two start work...haha

boo_licious said...

Don't think I have come across Albert's in Hartamas. Looks like a fun time you had and the cendol looks so good.

Kok said...

xiu long bao,

Xiu Long Bao said...

jason said...

XLB: LoL, sure since I notice there's not much review on Cheras. Jackson told me that it's abundant with nice food.

tummythoz:Not much gud food @ damansara heights actually. Normally i'll go food hunt on fridays...wiv that 2 hours time :)

Kok said...

xiu long bao,
Have you seen raw petai before? It's just like the big version of peas. haha! I think there's something to do with nutrition. That's why some of the people like it. By the way, petai is not cheap leh...

Xiu Long Bao said...

kok: Yar, saw ppl selling raw petai before. I tot petais are cheap vege leh.
