Restaurant Tarbush and Mega Lanes, Sunway Pyramid

Today we went for makan-makan with Mamarazzi's friends. We went to Restaurant Tarbush at Sunway Pyramid. It's a restaurant that serve middle eastern food. The restaurant is located at a rather secluded area at  Marrakesh side. The good thing is that the place is pretty quiet. Good venue to makan-makan and chit-chat.

I sort of like the food here. Came home asked Mamarazzi whether she knows how to cook this type of food.

Mamarazzi ordered Mandy Rice with Lamb for me but I only wanted the Lamb

I like the most is Tarbush Mix Grill which consist of Shish Kebab, Shish kebab, Lamb cubes, fries, grilled prawns and grilled arayes. No idea what is arayes so they went and google it.'s pita bread stuffed with minced lamb meat.

Second was this. Forgotten the name but I love the chicken kebab. Yum yum...

Mamarazzi and one of her friend like this . If not mistaken it's called Mazze II which consist of hommus, mutabal, arabic salda, tabouleh, falafel and kibbeh.  Stuff into the bread and eat. Very appetising.

Of course we didn't eat these by ourselves lah.. we shared. Each gets a taste of everything.

Portion wise is okay la. Price wise is a bit higher than some of the middle eastern restaurant that we have been to but we must also consider the rental there. Taste  wise, the food was good.

This yummy Chocolate steamed cake also very yummy too. Very chocolaty and not too sweet. But you can't get it at Tarbush. It's made by one of Mamarazzi's friend.

Supposed to go bowling after the brunch but then something came up. They went back instead but we went searching for the bowling alley.

It's my first time going bowling.

Saw Mamarazzi went to the counter to check out the price. Wow... she super long time have not bowled. Now price for a game  is RM13/person. Shoe rental RM3 and socks RM3. Lucky I was wearing socks . So no need to buy socks. Need to deposit a shoe with them before they give us a pair of bowling shoe.

Off we went looking for the bowling ball that ngum(suit) our weight. Wahhhhh... 6kg is min there.

After helping Mega Lanes to "Clear the drain", (It's a joke that means the ball fell into the "drain" at either sides of the lane.), I finally managed to hit a few pins. Okay la..not that bad la.

After bowling, we went jalan-jalan a bit. Saw Starbucks. I immediately went in and check whether they have used coffee ground . Need it for the garden. Guess what! they gave me one whole bag full of used coffee ground. Think they  said it's a week worth of coffee ground. Don't know how many kg but it's sure heavy.

 Ditch it in the car and Jalan-jalan cari makan some more. This time... sushi. Yum yum... Then it's time to go home.

Gong Xi Fatt Chai 恭喜发财 Xin Nian Kuai Le 新年快乐

It's the first day of Chinese New Year. Let me wish everyone here a Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year . Oh ya.. learn this from my friend "恭喜发财 ,紅包拿來,  不给红包,不准进来". So ...ahem ahem... just joking

Anyway, how was your reunion dinner? Okay? This year Ah Kong and Ah Mah(Grandparents) came to town instead of we "balik kampung"(go back home town) and they stayed for reunion dinner.

This year, Tesco was selling frozen abalone very cheap. Mamarazzi also grabbed a few but how to cook ah? No idea but after asking a few some Youtube video... okay la. Can cook la.

Last week Papa was asking wanna cook what for reunion dinner ah? Mamarazzi was saying dunno.. no plan yet. Ah Ma said cincai eat la. Eat pizza also can la.

Then... then... then... the influence of Facebook again. So many picture of poon choi dish  pop up. Seem like this year "heng"(trendy/popular) having "Poon Choi"a.k.a. Treasure Pot. Poon Choi is basically a collection  of good food served in a big claypot.

We had had Pooon Choi at restaurants before and tasted good though it was quite pricey. But to cook Poon ah? How to cook?

Mamarazzi being Mamarazzi... of course pakai hentam (simply wack) again la. Just sumbat(stuffed) everything into the pot and boil... errr...sorry no claypot... normal pot also can la. Don't know how to make the broth/gravy just used back the water from boiling abalone, dried oyster and scallop as soup/gravy base la.  Added into the pot are..cabbage, yacon, broccoli, super shy prawns, dried oyster, stuffed mushroom, abalone , roast pork...alamak...not enough space for roast pork... okay just do magic la.

Magic show... roast pork becomes a separate dish by itself. Add some fried chicken. 

Some "treasure bags" aka fried wantan and Fried enoki mushroom wrapped in wantan skin. Papa added some century eggs.

Super-duper sweet lotus root soup. Added into the soup was peanuts, dried oyster, scallop, yacon , goji, red dates and "phoenix claw"(chicken feet la).

Another magic dish. Not enough space to stuff into the Poon Choi Pot. The extra sweet pea and broccoli becomes another dish after she added some enoki mushroom a stir fried again. Kinda over cooked but can la....

What's the moral of the story? You'll need a bigger pot to cook Poon Choi. *LOL* Overall, Poon Choi was not that hard to make . It looked good and tasted good. Plus it's quite economical as compared to cooking all the dishes individually. Doesn't waste food too, as you can estimate how many pieces of goodies to put in for each person who is eating.

Blurp..... super-duper full dinner. Wash it down with an Ice-cream and also play some Pop Pop at the car porch. Yea.... now can't play fire works anymore.

Papa asked Mamarazzi to prepared some ang pau. ... I also wanna "help" la. Received a few angpau via Ah Mah's courier service. Thank you very much.

Ahem... guess what.... despite the heavy dinner, I was hungry again an hour later. Went and cook Yee Mee to eat and added TWO eggs into the noodle. Mamarazzi said she thought this is the year of Pig. Not the year of come the eggs in the fridge gone missing so fast ah???

Tonight, had another heavy dinner...but that's another story...maybe. ....

Meantime, goodnight and sweet dreams.
