BellyGood - Sunway Mentari, PJ

Alright, this is another delayed post which I was suppose to be written months ago. Simon Seow extend an invitation to participate in a food tasting session which is organised by Timothy Low. Check out their blog if you wanna know more about them This will be my first attempt to do a food review so please do bear with me ya, cause there will be lots of lousy photos(taken from bad angles) and camwhoring in the process.

Anyway here's how it goes, it was a Thursday and I was invited about 2 hours before the event. The Restaurant goes by the name BellyGood, which I think the owner intend to convey the message that the food is good for the belly(literally speaking), like the saying goes, the way to a men's heart is the stomach(stomach = belly lah). This place is strictly NON-HALAL because they serve pork(claimed to be their specialty).

This place was formally known at Wendy, but was paid to change their name's by Tan Sri Vincent Tan of Berjaya Group when they decide to open Wendy's Fast Food Chain

Timothy(the guy standing in blue shirt) given his welcome speech & an introduction to the restaurant.

There were about 15 to 20 lifestyle bloggers and food bloggers. One thing I like about this restaurant, is the open concept kitchen, which is clearly visible to its diners. This is a good thing because it allow hygiene conscious people like me see how the food is being prepared. This is in fact a growing trend among restaurant operators to have a open concept kitchen.

Baked Portobello Mushroom with Bacon and Cheese (Cost: RM 12.50).

Sausage Platter

This dish consists of 4 types of sausages - pork chorizo, pork oriental, and spicy Hungarian served with fries and thai chilli sauce.

Tenderloin with Creamy Hot Sauce

According to the owner, this is one of the latest addition to their menu. they also have Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Mustard Sauce(for those who prefer non spicy food). Though some may say that its too spicy, but to me its good. Maybe because I love spicy stuff.

Mixed Platter (RM23.90)

This dish is a combination of grilled pork belly and grilled pork ribs served with mashed potato and coleslaw.

Chocolate Brownies with Vanilla IceCream.

And here's a little video which I recorded with my trusted Nokia E71. It basically introduces everyone that were there that night.

Personally out of 10, I would only rate this place at 6 because I'm not a big fan of pork, and there were too many variety of pork served. Besides that I think the 2 chef couldn't work well under pressure with more than 10 DSLR clicking away. I said that because I happen to meet a colleague of mine who was dining there at the same time and she told me that the food taste better 2 weeks ago.

If you really wanna give this place a try, my recommendation is go there on a weekday when there are lesser people, the chef will definitely be able to prepare tastier food with lesser pressure.

Facebook's new feature: Username Profile

If you haven't notice, Facebook has just launch a new feature which allow you to choose a username for your profile. This will make things easier when you want to direct people to your profile on facebook.

Previously when you want to search for someone's profile, you either search for it with the email address or name which very often could land you on the wrong profile as there is more than 200 million people reportedly using facebook.

With the launch of the unique username assigned to profile, you can now go directly to the profile you are looking for.

This new feature was launch at 12pm today(13th June 2008), and I got my reserved at 12.30pm. My brother who tries to get his register his username but it was already taken up. So better be quick or else you will risk loosing you ideal username. If you don't see the message from Facebook telling you about the username, kindly go to and get you username registered now.

You should be able to see the message in blue box just like the one I circle in red.

Now you can view my profile at

I love this new feature because my friends and family can now access my profile without any hassle of memorising the long URL which facebook previously adopt. I think this move is to counter Twitter's growing popularity as, a mircoblging tool has long adopted the username feature which make its extremely easy for netizen to navigate around the cyberspace. If you have not heard about Twitter or seen it, you may take a peep at mine profile at

Dining @ Luk Yu Tea House, Starhill Gallery

Couple of weeks back, I'd the opportunity to dine at Luk Yu Tea House, a restaurant in Starhill Gallery. Both the Restaurant and Stahill Gallery are own by one of Malaysia's conglomerate, YTL Group Bhd.

Located on the ground floor, the entire level goes by the name of FEAST, This is where all the Food and Beverage outlets are located. If you are stepping into Starhill Gallery for the very first time, you will notice that every single floor is given a very unique name and when you step into any lift, you will not see any numbers on the button but those unique names assigned to each floor.

Anyway, I shall share my experience dining at this luxurious restaurant.

Arrived at late in the morning together with my relatives from Australia.

The entrance to Luk Yu Tea House

The restaurant adopt an open concept design, allowing passerby to get a glimpse of what is being served.

The furniture and fittings are a combination of traditional and modern age.

Stained Glass are used to enhance the designed

Even the kitchen has an open concept, this is especially good for diners who are concern about how the food are being prepared.

The kitchen is very clean and well equipped.

I simply love the lines of teapot carefully arranged.

These clay dining ware are fully imported with fish motif, very common for the chinese.

The cover of the Menu is made of fine wood with the restaurant name engrave on it.

On the inside, its looks like typical menu that you can get at any restaurant.

They serve a range of tea ranging for medium class to premium tea that cost up tm RM1050.

The appetiser, taste alittle line abolone, not sure what it is.

Hokkien Fried Bee Hoon @ RM26++

Yee Mee @ RM26++

Hokkien Style Friend Rice @ Rm26++

Odinary Fried Rice @ RM26

I've also fancy fried rice when ever I dine out, especially at fine restaurant like this one. Though friend rice may seem to be just a simple ordinary dish, but the fire and wok used by these trained chef seems to make it taste so much better.

Chee Cheong Fun with prawn @ RM12

We even tried some dim sum. I was told that when ever you tried dim sum, the chee cheong fun and char siu pau is a must try. If they are good, then the rest of the dim sum variety should be alright.

Siew Mai @ RM13.50. Taste just as good though this place don't serve pork

Har Kau @ RM13.50. This is really good as the prawn were big and fresh, while the skin was soft yet firm.

A meal wouldn't be complete if you don't finish it off with dessert.

Chilled Durian pancake @ RM14.00. A must try for durian lover, as the durian used are fresh.

We also tried the Mango Sago with Pamela @ RM8.50. This is the best of all the dessert they offer because its cooling and made of fresh mango.

There were 9 of us all together dinning at Luk Yu Tea House and the total bill came up to about RM416.30 after tax. That's about RM46.26 per pax

Our Bill @ RM416.30

It may look expensive, but if you benchmark it with some of the buffet offer available in town, this place definitely offer value for money dining at this kind of classy place. Bearing in mind that minimum service are offered when you have buffet.

Over all, I would rate this place at 8/10
Environment: 8/10
Service: 9/10
Food: 7/10
