Eighteen Wine and Dine Western Food Restaurant at Krystal Point

Eighteen Wine & Dine is well recommended by friend, so we decide to give it a try during our Friday 2 hours lunch.
This restaurant was located at Krystal Point, you can easily get parking beside the road or further up there is a parking lot.

Good ambient and nice decoration.

They have a wide range of wine for your selection.

Set Lunch Promotion RM19.80, which come with Drink, Soup, Main Course and Dessert. You may add RM5 for their Signature Dish. We ordered two set lunch, RM19.80 each.

They should have heated the bun before serve and the butter is just normal butter, butter portion is small as well.

Seafood Tomato Soup, few small pieces of fish meat cooked in homemade spicy tomato soup. Just normal but prefer if they could add more fish meat or squid.

Soup of the day.

Aglio-Olio Prawn Pasta, Pasta cook with white prawn, garlis, red cut chili and olive oil. I was quite dissapointed with the pasta.
Too much olive oil added and the small little prawn is not even fresh, not to mention the pasta is hard.

Seafood Tomyam Pasta, Stir fried seafood in rich and spicy Tom Yam Paste, It not really taste like Tom Yam instead is more toward heavy tomato taste. Normal.

What I like is the Durian Air Cream, free flow of ice cream if you order set lunch.

I selected the wrong set lunch or this restaurant is overrated? Anyhow, there is a lot good pasta around Penang.

Dry Bak Kut Teh Good Master Restoran

Has not visited Good Master Bak Kut Teh for at least half year, previously never miss to eat Bak Kut Teh every week after badminton.

Suprisingly, I don’t take raw garlic at all but when come to Bak Kut Teh a lot of raw garlic with black soy sauce is a must.

Oyster Sauce Vegetable, boiled vegetable with oyster sauce and fried garlic on top. Vegetable is crunchy but less oyster sauce make it no flavor, luckily some garlic on top help to boost a little bit of taste.

Dry Bak Kut The (Medium ~ RM20), the biggest difference with normal Bah Kut Teh obviously, the lack of herbal soup. Inside this claypot is more or less the same ingredients with soup Bak Kut Teh, pork, pork ball, pork stomach..etc.
What make Dry Bak Kut Teh is black soy sauce, dried chili, dried squid, lady finger and some secret ingredient.
Honestly, 6month before it was the best dry Bak Kut Teh in the town but not the same story now, was quite dissapointed this round as the flavor is not that strong compare to before.

Bak Kut Teh best friend, You Cha Kuih.

We did request for a small plate of Bah Kut Teh soup but they reject, reason because Dry Bak Kut Teh don’t provide soup anymore, then how are we going to dip You Cha Kuih and the rice is so dry…Request and request again, finally they give a small plate, then told us no more on next round. Dissapointed..!

Price is reasonable

Rate 2 star only due to poor quality of Bak Kut Teh and Service.

Ming Court Hong Kong Dim Sum Ipoh

Ming Court was another famous Dim Sum in “Dim Sum Street” Ipoh, where the same street you found Foh San and Yoke Fook Moon.

It kinda hard to get table so table sharing is a norm here, when you sat down those aunty will “throw” everything into your table, just make sure those are what you want and they mark it correctly.

Prawn Dumpling skin is yellow color and transparent but it was very small. Bah Kut is soft and juicy.

Fish Ball (Top Left and Center), it just taste normal. Siew Mai(Top Right) and Har Kao(Bottom) are just typical Dim Sum, Har Kao is tasty with big prawn inside and and transparent skin.

Some deep fried Dim Sum, Deep Fried Spring Roll(Top Right), Fried Prawn Roll and Dumpling (Bottom) is crispy and a lot small prawn inside, take together with mayonnaise is perfect.

Wu Kok(Top Right) was made of crispy yam skin and stuffed with char siew. Porridge(Bottom) is just normal.

Chee Cheong Fun stuff with Char Siew and Prawn, Sambai on the side. Nothing special.

This is what we ordered for 3 persons.

Receipt, price is reasonable but the portion is very very small compare to other Dim Sum Restaurant.

Roasted Suckling Pig at El Cerdo KL

El Cerdo, Nose to Tail eating. “El Cerdo”, meaning “The Pig”. Visited this restaurant after my training in KL, it was highly recommended by local people and was name the best suckling pig so I should not miss it right?
Follow my lovely GPS, navigate through some small road and finally reach. Problem to look for parking space as this area is really crowded with a lot other restaurant, finally found 1 parking area and per entrance fees is RM15. WAU!

While waiting for our food, we will attractted by noisy plate smashing but have no idea what is that all about.
Ordered Beer and another Alcoholic Drink which lemonade taste.

Appetizer served, Marinated Jelly Pork is tasty and special.

Soup taste like Bah Kut Teh? Not really as it without that much of herbs instead replace with some vegetable.

Star of the day, Roasted Suckling Pig, pratically every table ordered this.
Captain approach us with a plate in his hand, asking who want to be next lucky guy and my lovely refuse so I have to do it.
Captain share with us the story behind and guide me through the process, few chops on the suckling pig and throw the plate into one wooden box, whoever did that will have luck next.
After the whole process, captain brought back to the kitchen and the chef make a few more cut before it served.

Together with the Suckling Pig, Salad and Fried Potato is served.

Close up to the Suckling Pig, it skin is crispy and thin while a layer of fat before the juicy meat makes every bite.

Werner’s Special, which suppose to be one big cup but they help to split into two cup. Strawberry Ice Cream is pure and tasty together with Chocolate mousse and wild raspberry sherbet in between before mango sauce. Recommended.

Well, El Cerdo is serving the best suckling pig I have tried and few other dishes look interesting as well, definetely will visit again but the price is very high. Overall cost RM250+ for this dinner.

Lobster Baked Cheese at Ah Keat Seafood Restaurant Raja Uda

Having a 10 person dinner at Ah Keat Seafood Restaurant located in Raja Uda, Butterworth. This shop is well known for their huge variety of rare seafood like Geoduck, Snow Crab, Alaska Crab, Lobster…etc and for sure the price is never cheap for good stuff.

Scottland Bread Crab, never know that Scottland famous for it Crab as well.

Alaskan Crab on the left and unsure species on the right, which look very meaty, should be delicious.

Our first dish is Geoduck Shashimi RM267, first time in my life to taste it out but came out to be a huge dissapointment especially for such a high price it just don’t on par with it’s value.
Geoduck was sliced into small pieces and put on top of big plate of ice, Geoduck meat is hard and tasteless.

Cha Mou (Fried Porridge) RM15, normal.

Butter Alaska Crab RM190, you may say it is cheap right? Price is after 50% discount because this crab is just dead, but it was still very fresh.
Very generous amount of butter use to cook make the crab very tasty and each of us only got to eat one crab leg.

Mantis Prawn Salted Egg RM104, it was quite expensive as the 4 mantis prawn is not really big in size. Salted egg is always a good combination for seafood same goes to this dish delicious and flavorable just that the portion is small and expensive.

Lemon Steamed Lala RM12, fresh sweet Lala cook with Lemon and little bit of spicy make us very appetite.

Lobster RM296 for below two dishes, my experience always tell that Lobster is not nice as the meat is rough and hard, while the price is expensive.
Lobster Fried With Cheese, creamy, salty, sour tell the flavor for this dish. Fresh Lobster but as per my expectation, Lobster meat always hard and rough.

Lobster Baked Cheese, very good presentation but the flavor is just normal compare to Cheese Fried Lobster.

Pi Kelabu RM12, now it hard to get Pi anymore as it was very rare. The taste is actually terrible and taste like plastic ball, YES plastic ball so you can imagine how bad is it? Totally negative for me.

Our dessert of the day is Deep Fried Ice Cream, Ice Cream wrapped inside a layer of flour then freeze it, deep fried to golden color while ice cream inside just started to melt.

Overall food is good but Lobster and Geoduck pulling down our overall satisfaction level.

Overall rated as 3 as the price is slightly higher compare to other seafood restaurant but seafood freshness is tip top.
