Food: Taste the Finest Delights @ Champignons, Oasis Square Ara Damansara

I have a new place I recently discovered, which serves up really yummy dishes. Good food are meant to be shared and I believe that Champignons @ Oasis Square, Ara Damansara is one that everyone should know of.

The concept is more of a modern, chic restaurant, just the right place to chill and hang out with friends over this festive Chinese New Year season. The name Champignons means mushrooms and I find that it's such a cute way to name a restaurant.

We were served the Amuse Bouche, which is equivalent to a Chef's special. The Croque Monsieur is made up of ham slices and melted cheese, sandwiched in between crispy toast.

Absolutely appetizing!

Homemade Smoked Salmon with Citrus Salad

The in house cured smoked salmon slices, topped the citrus salad to form a beautiful presentation of an appetizer. 

Almost too good to be eaten, the salmon slices are thick and has a delicate texture to it. Absolutely savoury and flavourful! The salad was also refreshing with some julienned apples and beetroot sauce in it.

Wild Mushroom Soup

There were two types of mushrooms used for this soup; button and oyster mushrooms. The Chef decided to use yoghurt, instead of cream to thicken the soup and thus, it is definitely a healthier option. 

The soup is served with a piece of bruschetta, topped with mushrooms and cheese.

Grilled US Pork Ribs with Plum Sake Glaze

The US Pork Ribs has a smoother texture with less fat, probably a healthier option for us as well.

The pork was marinated with plum sauce which have a slight citrus flavour to it, and the meat was perfectly tender.

Black Truffle Chicken Breast

The chicken breast was marinated with white truffle oil, which has a stronger flavour compared to the usual black truffle oil. Even with chicken breast which tends to have a tough texture, the Chef decided to sous-vide the meat to maintain the juiciness of the chicken breast.

It was lightly pan fried to crisp the skin a little before serving.

Australian Lamb Short Loin with Homemade Lamb Sausages

The sausages were made in house and it was very juicy and flavorful. The lamb cutlets was not gamy, it did not have an excessive strong odor. In fact, it was only marinated with salt and pepper only.

Sprinkled with some caramelised onions to enhance the flavour of this dish, I highly recommend this for those who love to have some Australian lamb.

Mario Mushroom

This dessert is similar to the famous chocolate dome dessert, which is the trend these days. 
With a white chocolate dome on top, the insides are made up of chocolate sponge and raspberries.

There were some popping sparkly candies which was sprinkled around, so if you're lucky, you're in for a treat!

Shop: Affordable & Cute Goodies @ TOKUYA, Plaza Arcoris Mont Kiara

Just in time for CNY, I discovered an all-in-one Japanese store which carries wide ranges of products from stationeries, household, health and beauty items. You can find good quality and unique Japanese items at TOKUYA, Plaza Arcoris Mont Kiara, check out what I've gotten for myself below.

I love shopping here, because of the artsy decorations and modern vibes this place have. 

Love the wooden interior!

Check out the amazing variety of products available. I was spending so much time here, choosing and figuring out how to use each item.

Some featured products you can find at pretty affordable prices. 


I really needed a new mouse, and I'm so lucky I found one in pink! It's my favourite color and looks so aesthetically appealing. 

A special hair towel I can use for my hair spa too. The thing I like about TOKUYA, is that there are so many items which are versatile and funky, you will definitely find something you need there.

The cutest egg timer ever! I can't wait to try it out soon :)

GUESS WHAT? I actually got all these items for just RM 100, I think I've gotten quite a good deal and worth every cent spent. I'd really recommend everyone to come and shop here for new CNY goodies.
