The Buzz And Royal Gourmet: July And August Promotion Food Review

JenjalanKami is so excited to bring you our next food review – The Buzz and Royal Gourmet, two restaurants located in Premiere Hotel Klang, for their July and August menu!

We were warmly greeted by the staff upon arrival. Great customer service!

The moment we came into the restaurant, the set up for photography was ready. So efficient!

Now, let’s dive in to how the food tasted – starting from the new menu for The Buzz!

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Ikan Bakar Tepian Tebrau. Interesting name, isn’t it? It’s really the exact location where the chef was inspired to came up with the recipe.

Now, if only we can be like him – tasting a good food and try coming up with a recipe when we got home. This blog could turn into a cooking blog!

The fish comes together with rice, so it definitely is very filling. Believe us, it tastes just as great as how it looks (we rated a perfect excellent for this)!

We love the mix of sourness, and the level of hot is tolerable. Though we personally think it would be nicer if it is more hot. Then again, we are used to Negeri Sembilan & Javanese cooking, so probably we have different taste preference with the local Klang people in terms of the hot level.

The set is available for RM32.

Looking for finger foods during lunch time? No problem, they have Carbonara Chicken Spring Roll!

As you can see, it is very well-presented with beautiful mix of salad and tomatoes. Such a healthy lunch!

The wrap is crunchy with creamy carbonara sauce – prepared with the right mix of chicken and vegetables inside. We loved the taste, and thus, rated a perfect excellent for this dish as well. However, we personally think it would taste better without the peas (hey, we’re not peas fans).

The dish is available for RM20.

Pasta lovers, we hear you! This dish is called Pasta Vongole Pesto With Clam. The look is nice and the portion is great! But since we are not familiar with pesto, we think it tasted average. But worth a try!

This dish is available for RM25.

And now, let’s move to the menu for Royal Gourmet!

This tasty-looking dish is called Claypot Glass Noodle with Fresh Water Prawn, and has a great mix of vegetables and prawns. It’s a little bit salty to us, but just nice to tone down the strong taste of the vegetables.

But we have to tell this – the prawns were so juicy! So, all you prawn lovers out there should try this dish if you happen to be around town. As you can see, the portion is very big – definitely can accommodate big eaters!

This dish is available for RM32.

Last, but not least, is the Sizzling Honey Glaze Chicken. This particular picture is credit to our dearest friend Reen Borhan, who helped taking some pictures as back up. Many thanks!

These sizzling bites of chicken in sweet honey glaze is delicious, especially since it’s served hot! The presentation and the portion size are also great. We love it!

This dish is available for RM28.

Overall, we absolutely love and highly recommend people around the area of Bandar Bukit Tinggi, Klang, to try out their new menu. Kudos to Chef Noor Hisham Bin Mohamed Yusof and Chef Mohd Rosnan Bin Jaraih for preparing the awesome food!

Also special thanks to Mr. Azmi Tajudin for arranging the food & beverage, as well as Mr. Shamsul Fariz Mohd Sharif for inviting us.

How To Choose The Right Travel Luggage For Family Travellers

The school holidays are coming soon! We’re pretty sure everyone is busy booking holiday destinations at this point of time (if you’re going to have early flight from Kuala Lumpur, a stay at Tune Hotel KLIA2 is highly recommended). But wait, have you checked whether your bags are in good condition? Lucky if they are, but worry not if they don’t – as it’s not too late to buy them online. We love online shopping – we even do our weekly grocery shopping online, too!

Being frequent travellers ourselves, we have made research of what we look for when it comes to buying a travel luggage, which we are happy to share in this blog post! Oh and yes, some of them are affiliate links – it would probably help us to buy a teh tarik at the nearest mamak restaurant 🙂

Let’s not waste time and see what we think about choosing the right travel luggage – especially if you are a family traveller (and in our case, travelling with a baby or toddler)!

1. Consider your travel partners

We usually travel with a toddler (who loves throwing tantrums) and an elderly (who don’t have too much energy) – so having wheels is a must! If you travel with small kids, four-wheeled luggage like this streak travel luggage 20inch cabin size works wonders, especially if your toddler loves pushing them, too (be careful, they can even run and push at the same time). However, do note that most four-wheeled luggage have hard case, so you don’t have the option to put documents inside it without having to open the main zip.

2. Consider your itinerary

If you are like us, who dragged our luggage around for stadium tour during our short stop in Manchester (yes, we did that), you may find trolley duffel bags like this Oxford Waterproof Trolley Duffel Bag Thick Style Suitcase Women&Men Travel Bags convenient. Not only will you be able to pull the luggage around for a quick tour, it is even easy to carry when there’s a lot of stairs! They also usually have stylish looks – so perfect shopping bag for you even when you’re visiting upmarket places like Bicester Village.

3. Don’t forget your mummy bag

This is a bag any mom won’t leave home without. Believe me, mummy bags make life easier, especially when toddler starts throwing tantrum – opening the normal luggage seems like taking forever! Consider travel-friendly mummy bags like this Travel Luggage Bag Foldable Nylon Women Mummy Carry Bag . Not only are they large enough to carry everything (when travelling with a toddler, it seems like everything is an endless list), they are also light-weight and usually foldable. You can easily slip it inside one of your luggage if you decide not to use them!

Those are some tips from us about choosing the right travel luggage for family travellers, based on our experience travelling with a toddler and an elderly. Do you have some other points to recommend as well? Drop your comments below – we are more than happy to receive more ideas!

 

 

Tune Tour Episode 1: Tune Hotel KLIA2

We’re so excited to share with you the first of many Tune Tours that Yusof and Shafa’s family is going to explore and experience. Read more to learn about *drum roll* the Tune Hotel KLIA2!

As you know, KLIA2 is Malaysia’s airport for low-cost airlines and what a convenience to check-in to also check in in a low-priced hotel just beside the airport!

The lobby area is typical with all the waiting area chairs that will make you comfortable while waiting, a bar, a common area and a convenience store in one place.

The reception area, however, is divided. There is a specific one if you’re travelling in groups and individual. That made our checking-in and checking-out experience a bliss – it was so easy.


We availed two standard twin rooms – one for our family and the other one is for Shafa’s Mom (Yusof’s family couldn’t join us this time because of another event).

The cute decorations in our room is the first thing we noticed. It made us wanted to decorate our room in our house too! Our toddler, who only speaks when he’s in the mood, was also super excited and kept talking about the pictures in our room.

The safe box was neatly located at the bottom of the side table, in the middle of our twin beds. The downside: our toddler played with it every single minute.

The bathroom in our room was super small but also super neat! There was no cupboard, but there’s a place to hang your clothes.

*Updated information (thank you Mr. Syahrol Ikhwan Mohd Fadzil from Tune Hotel):*

All the hotel rooms are air-conditioned with a ceiling fan (Guests are able to use both during stay, no extra charge). Only few rooms are without ceiling fan (Premium Room and Garden Room).

The view of our room was not the airport side but we managed to see some flying planes. Our little one seems happy with the room and view, so no worries!

As mentioned, KLIA2 is a few walks away to the hotel. You just actually have to cross a road. We tried that ourselves – it was really near and walking distance, but it was a lengthy walk for senior citizens like my 69-year old mother. I was also having a hard time babywearing my toddler with all the walking! But surely, as any other airports, wheelchairs will be available if we need one.

Being near the airport, this means that Tune Hotel KLIA2 is also near to pharmacy stores, retails stores, ATMs and currency exchange available in the airport. Also, if you’re craving for other food aside from the ones in the hotel, restaurants like Burger King and the likes are also within reach.

In the morning, we had our breakfast at Makan – the hotel’s cafe. The food. Was. Great! You have the option to eat inside the cafe or outside.

In the morning, we had our breakfast at Makan – the hotel’s cafe. The food. Was. Great! You have the option to eat inside the cafe or outside. The breakfast buffet opens at 4am until 10am. In addition to a nice nature view, it was so convenient if you’re having an early flight in the morning, right? Special thanks to one of the staff – he gave us some tips about Makan & Tune Hotel KLIA2. Check out below live video, recorded on Facebook!

What are your considerations when looking for a hotel? Budget? Convenience? Location? Let’s talk in the comments section.

Thistle Port Dickson Breaking Fast With The Orphanage

We joined 60 orphans from the Port Dickson Islamic Orphanage Foundation during breaking of fast organised by Thistle Port Dickson at their very own Fresh restaurant.

It was already our second time to dine in their buffet but this time it was more special. All seven to 16 years old, including eight guardians, were treated to a variety of food for breaking fast headed by Chef Azlin Osman. Watch below video, recorded live on Facebook, to see how the event looks like, and a bit of briefing by the the Chef.

This is a very good gesture to be able to somewhat give back thru special gatherings like this. The breaking of fast program is part of the resort’s corporate responsibility and it is already their third year of hosting this event.

Thistle Port Dickson’s General Manager, Eusebius Samm, handed over goods and cash donations (Duit Raya packets) to all of the kids from the orphanage as a present. Watch the above live video, recorded on Facebook, to see the event. Everyone applauded the hotel’s generosity and charitable act.

The guests were entertained with songs performed by the Ochestra Eccentric group. The event was also attended by the Honorary Secretary of the foundation Mokhtar Ibrahim. Details about the food and the buffet was already discussed in previous blog post.

The overall experience had a quite busy crowd but it was a very overwhelming experience to be a part of a now traditional event at the Thistle Hotel. We are sure that all the guests had their tummies filled with goodness and their heart filled with joy.

But of course, there are various desserts to choose from. The buffet caters desserts from traditional to modern ones that would surely fit one’s love for something sweet.

With its secret marination and seasoning recipe, the lamb is roasted to perfect succulent meat texture, smothered with homemade gravy and served with side servings.

Ramadan Buffet at Klana Coffee House in Klana Beach Resort

We get the chance to spend time at a Muslim-friendly hotel – the Klana Beach Resort located at Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. Read our previous post on stay review at Klana Beach Resort.

Aside from the mesmerizing view of the sea and sky while having a refreshing dip, we also get to enjoy the food the resort offers!

The main buffet of various food is located inside the cafe of the resort but they have a few stalls outside surrounded with beautiful string lights which really intensifies the experience.

Eating a delightful food right outside – beside the beach – what a view to enjoy a sumptuous meal, right?

One of the food that we tasted was the Lai Chi Kang, which satisfied our sweet tooth cravings.

We also tried the Ayam Rendang Cili Api, Pucuk Ubi Tempoyak and Gulai Siput Sedut. They were hot with the right amount of spices, making us went for second serving!

Sambal and salted fish were star food for Kampung food lovers like Shafa. There were many types of sambal available, you will surely find one that suits your taste bud. Mouth-watering, right?


The savory Lemongrass Rice paired with meals like Ayam Penyek, Daging Masak Hitam, Kacang Buncis Goreng, Ikan Masin and Bubur Lambuk & Bubur Kacang Hijau.

The selection was really wide, I know. But here’s more! The Sambal Udang, though, is a star. Every bite is bursting with the delicious flavor of the prawn and complex flavor of the fiery sambal.

And of course, there are these various types of Keropok – Malaysian’s favourite finger foods!

And what better way to end tasty meals than by having luscious desserts! And like all the meal, the selection is also wide. You can pick from a combination of traditional and modern desserts like chocolate fountain with fruits, cakes and Lemang, which is a traditional Malaysian favourite.

Watch the above live video, recorded on Facebook, for the full information on the menu available at the Ramadan Buffet in Klana Beach Resort.

What also made us happy was the availability of surau nearby, which is perfect for Muslims to perform their prayers.

Ramadan Buffet at TrEat Restaurant & Bar in Oakwood Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur is conveniently located on Jalan Ampang which is also known as the Embassy Row, home to many diplomatic missions and also a stone’s throw away from KLCC and Bukit Bintang areas. Read our previous post on stay review at Oakwood Hotel Kuala Lumpur.

Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur presents another feast of local cuisine called ‘SAJIAN MELAYU ASLI’ at TrEat Restaurant & Bar, and is available until 2nd June 2019. When we came, there was an event held with orphanage, which is part of the CSR initiative by the hotel.

The specialty of Malay dishes are prepared from family recipes that were handed down from generations. These dishes are strong, spicy and aromatic, combining the rich taste of herbs and spices. Syaiful Alwi, the Head Chef of Oakwood Hotel & Residences Kuala Lumpur, has searched far and wide for traditional recipes when putting the buka puasa buffet together.

Desserts are prepared from traditional to modern, as well as varieties from hot to cold ones. Of course they have Dates; a must-have for Ramadan!

House special includes a juicy lamb with choices of sauce: Mint, BBQ, and Black Pepper.

Dalcha Kambing is served for another choice of lamb.

Nasi Kambing & Kambing Bakar are also in the selections but be prepared to wait since the stall is busy because it is everyone’s favourite.

Traditional ulam is also offered along to eat with varieties of sambal for a healthier course aside from western salad selections.

Kailan Ikan Masin, Shafa’s favourite type of vegetable cooking is also there!

Various types of Kerabu, traditional salads for Malay, are also served such as Kerabu Mangga, Kerabu Pucuk Ubi, Kerabu Taugeh, Kerabu Udang, Kerabu Daging, Kerabu Kacang Botol and Kerabu Kaki Ayam.

Papadom, Keropok Ikan and Ketam Goreng Bercili for chili crab lovers are also present.

Squid lovers on the other hand can enjoy a taste of their Sotong Kembang Kicap Pedas.

And Asam Pedas Ikan Pari just perfect for anyone who loves stingray.

But for chicken lovers, there’s Ayam Masak Merah.

Another one of Shafa’s favourite, the Nasi Hujan Panas, looked so good with the cashewnuts served on top of the colourful rice.

Just right for their scrumptious servings of grilled fish and prawns.

Different kinds of fritters are also available: Pisang Goreng, Sukun, Cempedak, Cucur Ikan Bilis and Cucur Udang.

Malaysian’s favourite desserts ABC & Cendol of course will never be missed in the buffet!

Aside from the cold drinks available by the pool, there are also burgers, Sup Gearbox, Lemang and Satay.

Fruits, coffees and teas are available to finish off a full belly along with performances from the orphanage as they say thanks.

And of course, a big thank you to Carol Chin from Oakwood Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur for the arrangements!

Ramadan Buffet at Dondang Sayang Coffee House in Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur

On the spot with Malaysia’s culinary offerings with creativity and culinary skills, Dondang Sayang Coffee House in Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur serves a wide variety of specialty dishes to mark the fasting month. The hotel is only a two minute walk to the underground Putra LRT and a five minute walk from the magnificent Kuala Lumpur City Centre, home of the world’s tallest building, the Petronas Twin Towers and the city’s premier shopping centre, Suria KLCC.

The windows of the café provides an overlooking view of the busy life of Kuala Lumpur.

The name of the Ramadan Buffet at Dondang Sayang Coffee House in Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur is “Selera Rasa Ramadan”.

The ambiance of the café itself is very warm and calming along with beautiful flowers to grace the food offerings.

Thoughtful decorations of the mosque are also found, symbolizing the Islamic celebration.

A variety of Malay-favorite beverages are readily available such as Sirap Limau & Sirap Bandung and of course, coffees!

Various ulam served with varieties of sambal, each has their own unique distinctive taste are also prepared.

There is a wide variety of main food to choose from, along with different kinds of rice. We choose Nasi Briyani Kambing. We think it tasted very good. The gravy was quite salty, but just nice to suite and complement with the spices. The lamb blends with the taste of the rice & gravy as well.

As lamb lovers, we did not miss the chance to try the Lamb Tandori. The spices were very delicious and the taste was “ummpph!”. The spices managed to tone down the strong taste and smell of the lamb, which is very good for those who are very picky in eating lambs!

We also tried the Daging Masak Lemak Rebung, which was hot but tasted just right – just like how Negeri Sembilan people would have prepared (Yusof’s family is from Negeri Sembilan – somebody’s pleasantly tasting home cooking here)! The meat was also soft, easy to chew (My worst nightmare is non-soft meat – it’s a nightmare for every person who wore braces before).

The main buffet was nicely and neatly decorated with each food shown well and can be reached into easily.

The Sotong Kunyit Goreng Bawang was really tasty. You can taste the sweetness of the onion, on top of the saltiness and spices of the turmeric squid. The onion provides the balance on the taste.

There was also Oxtail Stew for oxtail lovers.

We also tasted the Udang Sambal Petai. It was very delicious and hot! The petai and prawn were also fresh and it was really superb.

There was also Telur Masak Lemak Pucuk Ubi.

There’s also the Live Cooking area.

It smelled so nice while they were grilling sate!

There was also Ikan Sembilang Sambal Hijau. It’s Shafa’s favourite but her stomach was already too full to make room for it.

And of course, for people with Javanese root, like Shafa, wouldn’t want to miss to try their Kentang Goreng Tempe Jawa! It was hot and spicy, just like how Javanese would have cooked!

Another favourite is the Puyuh Goreng Berempah! We can really taste the spices, and the quail was bigger than average.

There was also Ketam Goreng Cili for Chilli Crab lovers!

They offered a variety of awesome desserts from traditional ones like Talam Jagung, Talam Ubi, Talam Keladi, Talam Pandan & Cucur Badak to modern ones like the cakes and cookies in jars.

And also Malaysian favourite finger food – Keropok Ikan!

And we were lucky enough to taste this scrumptious Ayam Percik Serai Wangi! We can taste the lemongrass, but the taste was just nice, not too strong.

There was also Gulai Kawah Tulang Rusuk and Ikan Patin Tempoyak! Everything looks too tasty but we already ate a lot so we can’t have some anymore.

There were traditional side dishes, too, and every Malaysian’s favorite food – Pulut Lemang Rendang Ayam and Otak-otak!

And we also tasted the Kuah Kacang. It was really delicious that Yusof said it was just like his mom’s cooking! The peanuts were crunchy. The gravy was not too hot & not too sweet.

There was also Beef Satay, Chicken Satay & Nasi Impit.

Yusof enjoyed his Teh Tarik, which was really delicious!

We took a picture with Ms Azlinda, the Senior Marketing Manager of Corus Hotel Kuala Lumpur, who made the arrangement to make all this possible. We couldn’t thank her enough!

Leo Palace Hotel (New Wing) – Strategic Location Beside PWTC

We had a three days and two nights stay at the Leo Palace Hotel at Kuala Lumpur before Ramadan.

The room we got was quite neat and had a comfortable space for a family of three with a toddler.

We had a study table where you can do work (which I don’t recommend if you are on vacation – but of course, travel bloggers don’t have much choice), charge mobile phones, and have coffee because an electric kettle and coffee mix is readily within your reach.

We got the Executive Suite which comes with a decent bathroom that has the basic toiletries and a hair dryer.

It was a bit small but the size was fairly comfortable.

From our room, we had a view of Kuala Lumpur city lights, Sunway Putra Mall, KL Tower and The Petronas Twin Towers. We love watching beautiful lights of the city at night, so this is a plus for us!

At the new wing of the Leo Palace Hotel we found a spot where you can chill while waiting for your partner to check in or check out of the hotel. But of course for us, this was the perfect spot for taking pictures!

The Leo Palace Hotel (New Wing) is located just beside the Putra Worldtrade Centre, so they are usually fully booked when there are events or conferences. I would advise you to plan ahead and book early if you want to stay here to avoid inconvenience.

Of course, we wouldn’t miss the chance to make the most of this staycation without trying out their swimming pool. It was perfectly situated on a height in the 9th floor where you get the wide view of the city with the nearby public transport (woo hoo for the kids to see trains!), buildings, and PWTC of course.

Our son loves the water, so this was really fun for him! We were able to capture a moment with the beautiful sky in the late evening at the rooftop of the hotel. We believe we got the perfect picture with all the beauty in it. The beautiful scenery with our beautiful family.

On our last day at the hotel, we had their mini breakfast buffet with a pretty good choices of food for guests of different ages. It was just right to have our bellies full to conclude our stay.

Definitely try this accommodation if you need to be near the area, and especially if you are attending event at PWTC! The price is pretty much reasonable for the convenience, comfort and service they provide.
