Food: Moo Kata Steamboat & BBQ House @ Kuchai Lama Food Court, Old Klang Road

If you live around the Kuchai Lama area for a long time, you would know that the food court which used to be opposite the Kuchai Entrepreneurs Park have been shifted to Old Klang Road. The food court was where I used to hangout and chill with my parents for supper but that was when I was much younger.

Ever since they shifted to the Old Klang Road, we didn't frequent it as much anymore. But, a few days back, I was invited to Moo Kata Steamboat & BBQ House which takes up a small little corner of this food court for a review session. I was a little skeptical at first about this restaurant because it was a steamboat & BBQ restaurant but oddly, it is located within a food court which is a tad bit unusual honestly.

Anyway, we reached and I had a look around. Surprisingly, the environment was outdoor and a little breezy, perfect for a BBQ setting. 

This place has only been open for a month and it was inspired by the Thai way of having steamboat & BBQ. Mr Chua & his sister in law, Angel brought in this concept known as 'Moo Kata' where there are three methods to cook your fresh food.

The steamboat pot for a healthier way of eating.

Sizzling hot plate, this method of cooking is definitely my favourite! But, beware of minor oil splats if you aren't too careful. 

The grill uses charcoal to bring out the taste of the meat and provide diners with the authentic, one of a kind experience of grilling as how it is meant to be.

The ingredients available for steamboat & BBQ were all in freezers which can be open and closed to maintain its freshness and of course, it was a hygienic way to serve the fresh food.

Seafood and a variety of fishballs were available as well. There were so many choices, you will have a hard time deciding what to have first :)

More fresh items prepared in satay sticks for grilling purposes. Very convenient for customers.

The array of all types of vegetables you can imagine as well as a variety of mushrooms and tofu. You may even opt to grill your meat and make your own wraps using lettuce.

Pork Bone Soup which is made using a total of 210 kg of pork bones and 170 litres of water. A pretty enormous amount contributing to the richness of this pure pork bone soup. 

Here's some homemade Tomyam paste which you may choose to add into your original pork bone soup. So fragrant and not oily at all! It is a little spicy though, so don't add too much on the first try or else you will end up drinking lots of water the whole night.


The sauces which were my favourite are the Seafood Sauce, Suki Sauce and Mookata Sauce. I prefer a sauce with a salty and sourish hint to it which is what the Seafood Sauce tastes like. 

The Suki Sauce is a tad bit sour and sweet while those who would like to spice up their meal, just try the Mookata Sauce as its spiciness is guaranteed top notch. All the ingredients used to make this sauce are imported all the way from Thailand.


The flavours of ice cream to choose from after a heavy meal; strawberry, cendol, chocolate, cappucino, yam, corn and rainbow!

My amazing shot of the in-house dessert which can only be exclusively found at Moo Kata! Durian Float which is more or less similar to a durian mille crepe cake. Made using pure D24 durian flesh, this is a dessert originating from the Philippines. So soft, creamy and the combination of  durian taste with it is heavenly indeed. A dessert not to be missed!

Daily: LED Photomodulation & Skin Peel @ Premier Clinic, TTDI

I've previously performed the Fractional CO2 Laser treatment at Premier Clinic branches in both Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) and Bangsar. Here's the link to my first post and second post on the treatments.

It was a great experience and for my skin, it's more radiant now and my complexion is much brighter with an even skin tone. Occasional redness still happens for me, but it's something I'm used to. Anyway, I went for a maintenance session with them at their TTDI branch recently and here's what I've got to say.

For those who have yet to read my previous posts, here is a picture of the front desk at Premier Clinic, TTDI.

A comfortable place that doesn't even have the clinic feel to be honest. So, you don't have to worry about going to a doctor for your skin conditions anymore.

Dr Kee explaining and suggesting the type of treatments I will require for maintenance purposes. He recommended for me to do a Skin Peel and subesquently, the LED Photomodulation therapy which will reduce my redness in a short period of time and give me the glow to my skin.

My 'before' therapy face which is a tad bit red here and there. I hate my eyebags but this is a super close up, NON-EDITED shot.

Here. the beauty assistant cleanse my face and made sure I was comfortable in the room before Dr Kee came in for the treatment.

And, now, Dr Kee began the Skin Peel Treatment using Salicylic Acid (SA) on my face first targeting the acne spots or any pigmentation on my face. Then he uses mild Lactic Acid which is part of the treatment process. 

It feels a little tingling at first especially around the region between my brows.  But, they used a fan to reduce the tingling and it actually gives you the cooling sensation instead.

Finally, the beauty assistant wipes everything off with a neutraliser spray. Then, the tingling gets lesser but you will feel warmth over your face.

Here's the LED Photomodulation therapy which will be for a total of 16 minutes. You will feel heat over your face and I thought they were opening my pores but it was a comfortable feeling nonetheless. Just relax and enjoy the treatment!

 The gigantic machine emitting LED lights on my face. You are advised to stay still during the treatment as you might get hurt if your hands touches the device.

A picture with the patient and nice Dr Kee! Thanks for the treatment, hope to see a difference in a week time, especially in time for Chinese New Year.

Food: Foodlogy French Cuisine @ Viva Residency, Sentul

Modern French dining is a more casual way to enjoy French food and Foodlogy at Viva Residency, Sentul offers this type of cuisine. Here, they believe that good food begins with good ingredients. It's a place with comfortable ambience for you to have dinner with family of friends and even, gatherings or birthday parties. This place can cater to 50 pax with an extensive menu of approximately 30-40 items to choose from. 

Foodlogy day and night view with simple, classic interiors. There is a bar to serve you drinks and overall, the concept of this place is very homey. In fact, the cooks here are two ladies, Sandy and Lily who have learned how to cook from a French Chef for about half a year.

We were introduced to what they serve here by Sandy, and we tried out some of her recommendations and best sellers at Foodlogy.

Mandarin Orange Salad (RM 16.90)
In conjunction with Chinese New Year, this salad is served to usher in the festivities. Mini mandarin oranges, lettuce, onions, herb croutons, cherry tomatoes and beef bacon are in this bowl of goodness. Some Italian citrus dressing was poured over it before serving it to diners.

Potato Artichoke Salad (RM 18.90)
Instead of the usual cold served salad, this is a different version of your usual salads as this is made with warm hollandaise mustard sauce. The potatoes were half cooked, by boiling only for a short while to maintain its slightly hard texture. There were green peas, potatoes, cherry tomatoes, eggs, red onions, artichoke, lettuce and beef bacon in this as well.

Mushroom & Truffle Cream Soup (RM 18.90)
This mushroom cream mixed with truffle paste is delightful and a good start before the mains. It warms your tummy before the heavy meal and is quite thick and filled with mushroom flavours. I enjoyed the fragrance of truffles which enhanced the overall taste of the soup.

Chicken A-la Cream (RM 25.90)
This was served in small slices of chicken fillet instead of one whole large piece. Oh, for this you may opt for a choice of chicken fillet or chicken thigh. The sauce for the chicken is made from special, organic Dijon mustard and creamy mushroom to bring out the flavour from the chicken. Each of their mains here are served with sauteed carrots, salad and parmesan cheese crackers which are baked and made from scratch here.

Seafood Pasta in White Wine Reduction Sauce (RM 45.90)
The uniqueness of this pasta dish is the way the cook it using white wine reduction method. The white wine is boiled to a certain amount before tossing in the pasta. There were squids, pranws, scallops  and some cherry tomatoes included but the pasta was slightly tasteless if eaten on its own. Coupling the spaghetti with bites of scallops which are a tad bit salty would be the perfect combination.

Foodlogy Nasi (RM 18.90)
This seems like your typical nasi lemak but here, they choose to make the herb rice instead of the coconut milk rice used in the traditional nasi lemak. The herb rice is made using spices such as cinnamon, star anise and turmeric. I enjoyed the home made sambal very much and the crispy, fragrant fried chicken which is pre-marinated with spices and turmeric.

Duck Breast with Smoked Tea & Soya Sauce (RM 29.90)
This special duck dish was my favourite of the night. The duck breast meat is pan fried and baked for a duration of 20 minutes. Then the sauce which is a combination of 'Lapsang Souchong' Smoked Tea and soya sauce was poured over it and served. The smoky flavour and the slightly saltiness from the soy sauce was a great compliment to the juicy, tender duck breast.

The special 'Lapsang Souchong' Smoked Tea which can be purchased here!

Steak A-la Bleu (RM 59.90)
I like my steaks well done but here, they served it medium rare. It's quite icky to see it bloody but the way they made this with some extravagant blue cheese was perfect to cover up the smell. It was very juicy and tender, surprisingly to my liking. This dish weights a total of 200 g, a pretty generous portion compared to other places. However, not everyone out there will enjoy this blue cheese steak, especially because it requires an acquired taste to enjoy it.

Choux A-la Creme (RM 12.90)
This French pastry ball dessert served with some whipped cream, vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup is a sweet end to the heavy meal. The balls are crispy of the outside but soft on the inside once you take a bite. Something different and out of the norm, this is a definite must try for dessert lovers.

This place has only been opened for 2 months but they have already organised birthday parties here. So, if you're planning to host any events soon, give them a call for reservations! Or, maybe, you could celebrate Valentine's day with your loved one at this French restaurant too.
