Post-Mr KL Food Trip!!
Warning: This post contains explicit photos of delicious, sugar-laden and carb-rich foods. DO NOT VIEW if you’re currently on a strict diet!
I wish I could look the way I do now all year round. In fact, I’m already controlling my diet starting from 3 days after competing. My aim is to gain as much muscle as possible with the least amount of fat gain. I will home cook everything and eat out only on occasions…
BUT NOT TODAY!! MUAHAHAHAHA!!
Today is the day right after Mr Kuala Lumpur and the only thing on my mind is FOOOD!!! Plus, I promised my friend (and Mr KL backstage helper), Ashley who came all the way down from Singapore that I will bring him on a food trip today around Kuala Lumpur.
So, because we want to maximize our appetite so we can try out as many food as possible during our KL food trip, we’ve decided to have an hour cardio in the morning at Desa Park City.
And right after our run, we head to Jusco, Desa Park City to grab a light snack.
Price: RM3.20. Sweet and simple.
Next, we continued our trip to a nearby hawker centre at Manjalara, Kepong for some amazing fried spaghetti! I used to eat this very often when I was in secondary school. Good for bulking!
Price: RM21 for both of us. Highly recommended!
Since Ashley has not tried authentic Malaysian mamak food, I’ve decided to introduce it to him! So we went to Al-Barkath, also in Manjalara.
We had two roti planta and a plate of Maggi goreng!
Price: RM15. Malaysian favourite!
It’s now 2.45pm. We head back to my place to bathe and change since we’re going somewhere further. Next stop, Food Republic, Pavilion Shopping Centre.
We were thirsty, so we grabbed a smoothie at Boost Juice Bar. I got a Blueberry Blast and Ashley got a Banana Buzz. Mine was better.
Price: RM20ish (I forgot). Yummy! And healthy!
Nothing in Food Republic really attracted my eyes. But Ashley thought the chicken rice looks good. So I ordered a BBQ chicken rice and he got a roasted duck rice.
Cost: RM18. Ashley was right. It is good! But for that price, you could get a lot more BBQ chicken rice elsewhere. I guess everything in Pavilion is expensive.
After that, we went for desserts! Ashley and I shared a chocolate and cheese cake cause we want to save our appetite for more food afterwards!
Price: RM9.90. Soft and creamy… Mmm… Love it!
I must admit. I’m in love with chocolate now. Deeply in love.
Just before we left Food Republic, look who we bumped into! It’s Nicholas, runner-up in the junior above-70kg at Mr Kuala Lumpur! Guess we’re not the only food hunters today!
It’s almost 4pm now. Ashley I took a walk from Pavilion to Lot 10, to try out a foodcourt there, Lot 10 Hutong, which was recommended by a foodie friend of mine, Su Yee. We must eat quick and leave the city before rush hour.
We would love to try everything but unfortunately, we have to save up some appetite for the finale of the night. So we shared a bowl of beef noodles.
Price: RM7.50. Tastes awesome! Recommended!
Phew! We barely escaped rush hour. I picked up Melody from her college and we drove to Ikano Power Centre to visit a friend of mine, Jordan, who is managing an eatery there.
And we had cakes and tea!
The name of the eatery is Kids’ World @ Ikano Power Centre. And don’t worry, if you have a sweet tooth, eating at Kids’ World isn’t too childish for you.
Price: RM25 for two cakes, two coffee and a small teapot of an Egyptian tea. Perfect for people with a sweet tooth! They have main course dishes too, of course.
Sometimes, I just like to walk into Toy R’ Us. Not that I buy anything from there, I just like to reminisce my childhood days and how innocent, naive and skinny I was. Haha.
Finally, our last stop and grand finale for the day, TAO Cuisine Japanese Buffet @ Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara!
As we walk in the restaurant, Ashley said, “Dude, everybody is staring at you. The cook was staring at you with eyes wide open!”
Me, “Ya, I know. I’m used to it”. I’m so vain, aren’t I?
Tao has a chocolate fountain for desserts. This is what Ashley and Melody created using it. Noobs. Let me show them how it’s done.
We ate more food than just the ones in these photos, of course. I was just lazy to photograph all of them. I just wanna EAT!!
A good pal and another up and coming young bodybuilder, Ahmad Faiz, joined us for dinner! Look at him eating clean in preparation for Mr Putrajaya, where he’ll kick ass in the juniors!
Price: RM72 per pax. High quality sushi and sashimi, but quite limited choices.
And that’s it for the day! However, the next day, Ashley and I took a walk around One Utama before leaving for Singapore. And we found this absolutely amazing place which sells delicious desserts for a really affordable price!!
Price: RM10.50 ONLY!! If you’re not on diet, you must try it! It’s Puran B/Plan B @ Eat Paradise, Isetan @ One Utama!
And right before boarding our bus, I just must grab another of my teenage-hood favourite! Seafood tempura from Shihlin Taiwanese Snack!
Price: RM6. Simple and delicious snack!
So that’s it for our food trip. The next day, it’s back to dieting again! Like our page for more delicious and healthy food or delicious and not-so-healthy food!
