Restaurant Simbad, Smolenski

After Sat lecture, John was not included in Joanne and Sarah's ONLY girls outing. John was alone without Joanne for the very 1st time! As far as I can remember. So he asked me to do a little scouting with him around our area for some new eatery. And our little adventure lead us to these -

At 1st we thought it was not operating anymore because it was so quiet. We almost gave up until I notice a random green door that says open.

And yes, we were the only customers at the eatery. We felt kinda weird and suspicious about the place but hey.. that describes Moscow perfectly. In a lot of sense. It was a little awkward too.. only 2 guys having the WHOLE restaurant by themselves.

But it turn out to be quite a pleasant experience. We were the only customers so we were served VERY attentively. Something that is very much lacking in Moscow's services in every aspect. And i mean in EVERY aspect. Can't seem to stress this enough.

Photobucket

Here we were served like Kings.

Photobucket

We were crossing our fingers on the food.

..and it turned out quite decent!

Photobucket

I ordered Pork Shashlik. It The meat was so soft and tender and I could taste the good marination. It cost 260 rubs .. approx rm30. That's an alright price in Moscow's restaurant standard.

Photobucket

John ordered the lamb ribs. It wasn't as good as the shashlik imo but it's alright. Don't know how much is it but its approx around the price of the shashlik too.

Photobucket

The best part is..the manager insist a number of times we will have 10% discount the next time if we come back again! Now that's a rare statement here! Wonder if they can still recognise us then.

Welcome back to Moscow.


By the way.. this is rather interesting.

The snow is so thick that a truck was assigned to create a divider in the middle to separate the ongoing cars. Speed + brake = won't able to stop the car. But this yellow van on the right used the clean divider to speed. Pretty darn smart.

CNY Reunion '10

Saturday, February 20, 2010 at 8:22 PM
Just like every year, dad would invite all the relatives for a family reunion dinner. Usually only the one's staying closer to KL can make it. It's a pity I still couldn't meet up with some over at Klang, JB, and Sing. but nonetheless it was a great reunion. As always, the venue is Restaurant Hokkaido. A distance relative of mine operates it. It's located at Jln Lumut, behind Jln Pahang.. right opposite Hotel Vistana.

And of course, every reunion dinner starts with Yee Sang.

'Lou Yee Sang'

Photobucket

Yee Sang = 鱼生 which means raw fish.. but it sounds like 于生which means increase in abundance! Therefore, yee sang is considered a symbol of abundance, prosperity and vigor.

Did not get any catch that day. Not even a single toman bite. At least a bite we were hoping for!

Photobucket

But it's a beautiful place to fish no doubt. Maybe the tomans weren't so hungry in the afternoon. Will come back the next holiday! Oh and Happy CNY dear readers!
