Cafe De Vie

When someone mentions Cafe De Vie, the 1st thing that always comes in mind is their super delicious mille crepe cake. I never would have guess they have an extensive menu that taste as good as their mille crepe cakes too! 

On one sunny sunday afternoon, we decided to celebrate Irene's birthday at Cafe De Vie in Metro Town. We wanted to celebrate it at a cozy place where there'll be cakes! lolz.

And here's what we had for lunch..... Tada !

Butter Prawn Spaghetti - RM15.20

If you're a big fan of butter prawns, you're going to love this. If you're a big fan of rich, creamy spaghetti, you're going to love this too! Did I mentioned how tasty this is, because this is the best spaghetti I'd ever tasted so far. The butter prawns were super flavourful, the spaghetti was drenched in rich, creamy sauce that was the perfect combination between not too thick and not too watery.

De Vie Nasi Lemak - RM14.30

This is probably the biggest shock of them all. We would never had guess their De Vie Nasi Lemak tasted surprisingly really really good. Their sambal belacan was super aromatic, the fried chicken was super tender and well marinated, the dried anchovies and salted peanuts were crunchy & crispy. Even their sunny side egg was perfect too! Not overcooked and not too runny. Just perfect ^.^

Swiss Chocolate Velvet Cake -RM11.90

Chocolate lovers would enjoy this delectable chocolatey cake. The only thing to remember is if you're planning to light birthday candles on it, it's probably not a really good choice as we'd witnessed Irene blew away a great amount of chocolate powder on top of the cake during one enthusiastic birthday candle moment, leaving our table filled with chocolatey goodness powder, lolz.

Mocha Cheese - RM11.90

I love the balance between the taste of mocha and cheese in this cake. They seem to blend well without overpowering the taste of one another.

Iced Lemon Tea - RM5.39
100 Plus - RM4.23

Their iced lemon tea has the perfect lemonade concentrate and the sweetness is just rigggght. Overall Cafe De Vie is not only perfect for tea breaks, but there's other delicious menu options for lunch and dinner too.

Lastly Happy Birthday to my dearest friend Irene! Wishing you happiness today, tomorrow and always ^.^

Fook Fah Restaurant

After spending our saturday visiting UMS Marine Aquarium & Museum, suddenly we had some serious cravings for seafood, specifically butter prawns. I'm not even sure if it's normal to have seafood cravings after just seeing little lobsters swimming around in aquariums, lolz.

We headed towards 1Borneo Hypermall and after spending some time checking out which restaurant offers seafood on their menus, we finally decided to satisfy our cravings at Fook Fah Restaurant. If the name sounds familiar to you, that's because this restaurant is the 2nd branch that was opened here in 1Borneo. Their 1st restaurant is located in Kingfisher.

And... here's some pics on what we had that day.

Dry Butter Prawn - RM20
These dry butter prawns are a must try! They're really delicious and we loved the sweetness that has been added into this dish. The portion was quite generous too ^.^

Corn Soup with Crab Meat - RM11

The corn soup was flavourful and delicious too, the only downside is they used shredded crabsticks instead of real crab meats. But we still loved the taste of it.

................ - RM9.50

I have completely forgotten the name of this dish, lolz. We actually picked this after seeing it's pic on the menu, it's something we'd never tried before so we were curious how this taste like. The seasoning sauce has a really delicious fragrant and  it tasted a lot like those seasoning sauce in instant noodles. The only difference is this actually has more belacan flavour and an added zesty kick from the lime. 

Overall Fook Fah Restaurant is a really great place for having lunch or dinner whenever you're cravings for some chinese food, or in our case an extreme cravings for seafood, lolz.

P.S : The Cobalt Blue Lobster from the UMS Aquarium that sparked our seafood cravings...... Yum....Hahahaa
