It was an impressive showcase of Chef Sasagawa's Kaiseki cuisine; a beautifully artistic and multi sensory dining experience. Leaving me with tasty memories of such exquisite dining experience, which I will use as inspiration for my next set of gastronomic adventures.

Dining at Sasagawa, you will learn to appreciate the fine art of dining with emphasis on food presentation and the use of crockery as part of the dish and its overall appeal. Beautiful designed and painted crockery are use for different courses, with great  focus on enticing our palates, our multi sensory appreciation of a certain dish through visual, sound, texture, temperature and aroma.

Cha Po Tion Seafood Restaurant
Spicy Sour Vermicelli or Meehoon Seafood Soup
RM 20

Seafood Porridge
RM 25

I always believe that food bonds people together. My family loves food and travel, so we are always on a look-out for good food and good places to eat and have some family time together. We had lots of fun and share many unforgettable experiences of food-tripping, going on culinary trips to seek out good food.

My foodie family decided to go on a 'Jalan-jalan Cari Makan' trip seeking out the best in Sekinchan and Kuala Selangor which are famous for their fresh and cheap seafood. Recommendation came from my friend, Jason Liew aka blogger at fattyjason.blogspot.com, tempting us to go on a food trip to Sekinchan, a small town located in the state of Selangor, Malaysia.

Restoran Cha Po Tion, famous for their shark soup, seafood porridge, vermicelli (mee hoon) seafood soup, steamed lala and deep fried calamari among others. So you got to drive the distance on a day-trip just how I did with my family to check out this lively fishing village, Sekinchan is often visited for its fresh seafood. It also draws diners from Kuala Lumpur and Ipoh where seafood lovers come all the way just to savour the delectable seafood here. No regrets, you must try it to find out for yourself. Caution ~ it's a MUST to arrive as early as 9am to 10am to avoid the afternoon lunch tourist crowds 


The Champ Kitchen
One of latest discoveries on my gastronomic adventures is The Champ Kitchen in Taman Perindustrian KIP, Kepong in the Klang Valley. Okay, I know this a bit far-fetched, but if you want to savour real good porky dishes, The Champ Kitchen is the place to visit. You will get to enjoy delectable family's time-honoured recipes that has spanned over 4 generations. 

Overall, The Champ Kitchen is a decent and good-tasting family restaurant that provides a varieties of ala-carte home-styled Chinese cooking dishes to go with rice or noodles. Must Try is their Pork Rice, which I enjoy eating very much, kinda comforting to eat. Priced at only RM 8, it's really a good price to pay for a delicious meal of pork rice with egg and preserved vegetables all thrown in. I loved the different texture and flavours of the tender pork slices, creamy lava 'hot spring' egg mixed together the sweet and sour of the ham choy with the mui choy. Thumbs up for that!


Piggy Tail Restaurant & Wine Bar
Star Of The Night
Piggy Pork Shoulder Steak
RM 45

Those who enjoy best cuts of premium, highest quality ~ Sakura Pork might find something to their liking on the Piggy Tail's menu. Great place to chill over drinks with sinfully delicious great bar bites to go with your excellent cocktails, beers or wine! 

Truffles Ice Cream
RM 18

One cannot leave Piggy Tail without tasting their Signature Dessert ~ Truffles Ice Cream, for which they are known for. A pleasing-to-the-eye home-made truffle ice cream drizzled with crispy bacon bits and drowned in chocolate sauce.... a perfect mix of sweet and salty. You shall be wow over with the heavenly mixed of sweet with savoury dessert, a very impressive dish to end our review at Piggy Tail that day!


Sungai Janggut Seafood Restaurant

RM 50

German Pig Foot aka Pork Knuckle
RM 45

Sungai Janggut Seafood Restaurant is located by the river bank at Sungai Janggut, you can be assured of the freshest of the fresh seafood while dining in this restaurant. We had a really super fresh, sumptuous and delicious seafood dinner at Sungai Janggut Seafood Restaurant.Pricing was very affordable and value for money, seriously something you cannot find back in Klang Valley. Their crabs, prawns and bamboo clams dishes is a Must-try, something you should not missed out. Oh yes, do not forget to order their 'German Pig Foot' dish, which is actually 'Pork Knuckle' priced at a unbelievable tag of RM 45. 


PORTO BELLO
Signature Dish ~ Smoked BBQ Spring Chicken
RM 29.90 (Half a bird)

My unforgetable dish I had here is their Signature Dish ~ Smoked BBQ Spring Chicken. Smoked and grill to perfection, the Chef smoked the chicken with special wood called the Sarsi Wood for its fragrant, as it gives them a smokey natural flavour and better texture. Tenderly prepared with care as the spring chicken is lighted seasoned with cajun, spices and paprika powder and smoked in the oven by the heat generated from the special Sarsi wood. A super tedious preparation with perfect timing but the end results is amazing. 

Highly recommended dish if you have had enough of the usual roast or grilled chicken commonly served in many restaurants. As for me, I will definitely come back here for another meal of the super-licious and aromatic smokey chicken to satisfy my cravings!


FOUR SEASONS SEAFOOD RESTAURANT
Chef's Special ~ Seafood Pot

Four Seasons Seafood Restaurant specialises in seafood especially crab dishes, with the ingredients and recipes that are uniquely created by its Head Chef Choong. A young passionate chef that always looking for new recipes to whet his diners appetite with his house made sauces. He prepares crabs by selecting the best live ones which when cooked to bring out its true flavours. 

If you have cravings for seafood, especially fresh and meaty crabs, then head over to Bandar Mahkota Cheras.Dining at Four Seasons Seafood Restaurant is easy. Simply walk in and order from its extensive seafood menu. Then sit back and wait to be pampered with freshly prepared crabs, prawns, clams, squid and fish dishes that suit your taste and fancy.

I was pretty impressed with their well-furnished private rooms setting with some bigger rooms offering a seating capacity of up to 24 paxs per room with 2 dining tables complete with karaoke facilities. Certainly a great place for family and friends to dine, wine and sing their blues away while savouring some super delicious seafood dishes!


Shinjiro Izakaya Yakitori Japanese Restaurant
Yakitori lovers rejoice as Shinjiro Izakaya Yakitori, a new-kid-from-the-block opens their first outlet at Tropicana City Mall in Petaling Jaya. All culinary creations are carefully crafted to cater to the discerning palates of local foodies with affordable pricing for the younger generation. I found their wide range of offerings pretty amazing, not too overly prized and quite delicious too. 

 Under the helm of Head Chef from Torii, the Izakaya-style Japanese delicacies features a plethora of up to 35 kinds of yakitori from poultry, beef, seafood and vegetables of every kind to whet your appetite. All skewers comes with chef recommended sauces, but diners can  choose their own from 7 selection of sauces, only if they have their own preferences.
