Merchant's Lane

Somewhere in  Chinatown Kuala Lumpur, we found the little green teal door which leads upstairs to one of the hippest cafe in town. If you blinked, you would have missed the teal green door. It is sandwiched between shops. My sis and I ventured upstairs and found the quaint little cafe which serves a little of western and Asian fusion dishes.

At first glance, one would think this hipster's cafe is in Cambodia. There is a tree with sprawling roots in the middle of the cafe. I love it. (I wished there is a tree in the middle of my house!)

As we were still full from breakfast, we decided to just order drinks and nibbles. Then I spotted the words, Pandan and Kaya in the same sentence ...oh my Lord... this is a must order!

The "Better than Sex" pandan crepe with kaya toast ice cream was delicious and we enjoyed Pipit's Nest which is the plate of fried onions rings, chicken tenders and brinjal with cheese and mayo sauce.

Yatai Sushi, Wagga Wagga

Dropped off the boy at his hobby club this morning and then I headed off to do some shopping in the mall. The boy needed more winter socks on the account of "Furkid, the socks destroyer"! Whilst at the mall, I decided to try out this new Japanese sushi train place in Sturt Mall, Wagga Wagga. It's called Yatai Sushi. For Wagga residents, this used to be the newsagent shop in the mall.

I was early, there was only a handful of people at the sushi bar.  It got crowded soon after though. I was amazed with the full seating, I didn't think that Wagga people was adventurous enough to try sushi and sashimi. I was thinking that "Zen Teppanyaki" of Baylis Street, used to be empty all the time, and that was why it closed down because there was no market for Japanese foods in Wagga. Boy! Was I wrong! This place got filled up fast and there were people waiting to be seated.

Of course I had to order a bento lunch and try some sushi rolls as well. I am giving the Bento box THE THUMBS UPS because the Teriyaki chicken was delicious, very tasty and my prawns tempura was freshly cooked!

For those that do not care for the sushi train, there are choices of ramen, udon noodles and bento boxes available from the menu. You don't have to sit by the sushi train bar, there are tables and chairs available inside the restaurant.

Yes, I can easily recommend this place for a quick Japanese meal. It is very affordable, my bento box was $16.80 and the sushi plates varies from $3.50 to $5.00. Japanese green tea was $3.50 for a teapot. It's open 7 days a week and I am already a big fan!
