Decanter @ Damansara Heights

I have heard and read a lot about Decanter but have yet to try. So one fine day, with a couple of my good friends we decided to go to Decanter for brunch which was an excellent idea! :D The American Breakfast was a little on the disappointing side. Just normal gardenia style slices of bread, two sunny side ups, miniscule piece of ham, two measly sausages and some bakes beans and just a sliced of grilled tomatoes. Frankly speaking, nothing really impressive.

Banana pancakes came out pretty out of our imagination. I would have imagined just stacks of pancake with freshly cut bananas. However, the ones here have cooked bananas swimming with custard which was absolutely delicious!

Peach Crumble was pretty good and it is served with a generous amount of custard which was yummy. You can choose to have it with custard or with ice cream.

Eggs Benedict was really good too. Served with a dollop of hollandaise sauce, two stalks of asparagus and ham and eggs.

Restoran Tien Pin @ SS2

Was told by my ex-colleague about this place that serves affordable yet tasty food. My guess is that it is a Hainanese Place as it has got Hainanese Taste wordings its signboard. It is situated at the lesser traffic area of SS2, behind the row of shops where Sri Siam is. So parking is ample here.

Front Store

The menu is pretty extensive. Ranging from noodles, porridge to snacks and even toast.



The signature noodle would be Mee Pok (RM5). It claims that it is the Original Mee Pok. The noodles are pretty tasty as it is served with minced pork meat, plenty of fried pork lard (my fav!) , spring onions and a side soup of fish balls and paste. They use pork oil in the noodles as well, making it really fragrant. The fishballs are really springy and tasty. Pretty good in my opinion.

Dry Mee Pok

The Fu Chuck Skin Roll (RM6) is basically Fish Paste Wrapped in beancurd skin and another layer of chu cheong fun served with plum sauce. This wasn't really that good as the fish paste texture is not as springy as the ones that come with Mee Pok.

Yam Cake (RM3) wasn't really good as it was too gummy and lack in taste.

Yam Cake

The total came up to about RM16 inclusive of a cup of tea and sky juice. Cheap! No tax or service charge. Probably will try the porridge, sweet soup or the other fried noodles next time.
