Wagyu Beef Delights at Sango Japanese Restaurant, Petaling Jaya

I have always love Japanese food, but most Japanese food franchises in Malaysia serves mediocre Japanese cuisine. A shame really, as authentic Japanese food are supposed to taste beyond delicious. I’m constantly on the lookout for Japanese restaurants that serves good Japanese food in Klang Valley and here’s one among the few that I can recommend; Sango Japanese Restaurant.

The restaurant have a history of 22 years in Malaysia as of 2017, and is located at level 2 of Crystal Crown Hotel in Petaling Jaya Selangor, Malaysia.

The restaurant offers public dining, but should you require some privacy, private tatami room is available upon request and it could accomodate 8 pax of guests at one time. Perfect for small private gatherings.

Spotted upon entering the restaurant is their open sashimi bar where the chef will freshly prepare sashimi for you upon ordering.

Similar to the sashimis, Yakitori are also made to order to retain the natural flavours of the skewered dish.

Wagyu Beef series menu

Watch the video to get a better idea on what Sango Japanese restaurant has to offer.

Sango Japanese Restaurant is specialized in Yakitori, and in my previous visit, I’ve tried a selection of their Donburi but as of writing, they are currently offering Sango Beef Series which is really good. What’s recommended on their menu are; Wagyu Toban Yaki, Gyu Tataki Truffled Ponzu, Wafu Hamburger Slider, Delicious Wagyu Steak Donburi, Superb Wagyu Maki, Bara Wagyu Cubes Donburi, Wagyu Cubes Donburi with Foie Gras, Wagyukushiyaki and Ox Tongue Donburi.

Wagyu Toban Yaki (RM60) . This dish features seared wagyu meat and vegetabe on ceramic plates. You may do all the searing yourselves, but be careful not to overcook the meat to retain the juiciness of the meat. Just sear both sides til medium rare and they’re all good for your enjoyment.

Gyu Tataki Truffled Ponzu (RM38). These thinly sliced beef with truffled citrus sauce is prettu much tangy and refreshing on the palate. Those who likes sourish dishes will adore this.

Wafu Hamburger Slider (RM20) is a set of Japanese style hamburgers served with crispy onion and mustard. Highly recommended for children and for those who wants some light carbs in their diet.

Delicious Wagyu Steak Donburi (RM45). Can’t go a day without your fill of rice? This wholesome meal is definitely for rice lovers. The ricebowl is topped generously with grilled Wagyu beef and perfectly done onsen egg. A promising and comforting meal for a hungry tummy.

Superb Wagyu Maki (RM35). A fan of sushis and maki? Try this Superb Wagyu Maki. The Wagyu beef are paired with rice, miso spicy mayo with crispy onion. A unique rendition of rice rolls, I must say and a refreshing change from the usual fishes and such.

Bara Wagyu Cubes Donburi (RM55). This ricebowl are topped with Wagyu cubes with tare glaze, scallions and tobiko bits. A wholesome meal that will keep your growling tummy happy.

Wagyu Cubes Donburi with Foie Gras (RM85). This dish features a lovely bowl of rice topped with melt-in-your mouth Wagyu cubes, foie gras and shittake mushrooms. An luxurious indulgence in a bowl, definitely. A personal favourite of mine among all the Wagyu beef series offered by Sango Japanese Restaurant.

Ox Tongue Donburi (RM38). Feeling advanturous? Fancy something a little exotic? Try this Ox Tongue Donburi. Yes, as the name suggest, this ricebowl dish is topped with sliced ox tongue. They’re delicious, I assure you.

Wagyukushiyaki (RM18) is a must try if you just want meat and nothing else. Wagyukushiyaki is simply a dish of charcoal grilled Wagyu cubes seasoned with sea salt. The dish offers satisfying bites in each of it’s skewers.

These Wagyu beef dishes from Sango is a must try if you are a fan of all things meaty. The selections of Wagyu beef are perfectly marbled and actually melts-in-your mouth as you eat and I promise you that you’ll be begging for more once you’ve tried them.

Slide the City Malaysia Excites Fans with Night Splashing Fun

Slide the City Malaysia has officially launched their first ever premium night slide in South East Asia happening every weekend on Fridays (5pm-12am), Saturdays and Sundays (9am-12am) from September 30th – October 29th, 2017 at Car Park C, Setia City Convention Centre in Setia Alam.

Slide the City is a global phenomenon that brings a gigantic slip n’ slide onto city streets and has invaded major cities such as United States, Columbia, Canada, United Kingdom, Korea, Japan, Brunei, Hong Kong, Macau, China, Taiwan and many more since 2013. However, Slide the City is not new to the Malaysian scene. The premium slide was first brought to Malaysia in December 2015 by Monkey Theory Sdn. Bhd and has since journeyed across Malaysia and landed in states such as Penang, Melaka, Kuantan and Johor Bahru.

image

However, this time around Slide the City is back in Klang Valley and sliders are in for a twist! Previously, fans were only able to enjoy the slide during the day. Now, they can slip n’ slide under the moon.

image

Night Sliders will just need to change into their summer attire and have a splashing fun time without worrying about getting sunburned!

“Every child’s face will light up when parents tell them they are going to the neighbourhood playground to slide on the huge slide. We wanted to relive that happy moment for both the adults and children aged 7 and above. So, we decided to bring this gigantic waterslide to Malaysia but now we’re going the extra mile and are extending our opening hours to the wee hours of the night so that our fans can slide down right under the moon and stars!  I tell you that feeling is just phenomenal! I urge everyone to come and experience it for themselves. We have even extended the one day event to a month long! So there’s no chance of anyone missing out on this event!” exclaimed Mr Leong Delon, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Monkey Theory Sdn. Bhd., the organiser of Slide the City Malaysia.

The event is designed to be a fun family-oriented event within a carnival-like atmosphere making the event a must for families to bond and spend time with their loved ones.

Food enthusiasts will also have a great time there with many choices of food to choose from as there will also be a number of food trucks parked there throughout the event to fill all your gastronomic needs.

However, it is not all just fun and games with Slide the City Malaysia.

Slide the City are also big on preserving the environment for future generations and have partnered with Wahoo Events on their Shark Savers campaign to say NO to the consumption of shark fins as the vast killing of these precious organisms not only damages the ecosystem but also pollutes the seas

SkyAvenue Fashion Week 2017: Time to Light Up Jewellery & Timepiece Fashion Show

People often have this misconception that social media influencers and models loves to dress up to the nines whenever they make public appearance, but personally, I like clothes that’s minimalistic and those that make me look prim and proper instead of flamboyant and flashy. When it comes to dressing up, I have always opt for comfort over style despite the fact that I do some part time modeling whenever opportunity arises. And when it comes to accessorizing or wearing jewelleries, I prefer those tiny, delicate ones instead of huge, very colourful ones. There are plenty of jewelers in the market offering that sort of jewelries, but among my top all time favourite is from Thomas Sabo, one of the leading global brand in designing, selling and distributing jewelleries and timepieces. I have a few charms and tiny little bracelets from Thomas Sabo at home in my jewelry box and wears them occassionally when I feel like going for the glamourous look.

My husband probably cannot understand why I buy accessories more than I buy clothes, but here’s the thing; sometimes jewelries remains evergreen and never goes out of fashion. And if you know how to pair them up, they will even make you look as if you are worth a million dollar.

image

Anyway, I happened to be invited to SkyAvenue Fashion Week 2017: Time to Light Up Jewellery & Timepiece about two weeks back, featuring the latest collections of all the jewellery
and timepiece tenants at SkyAvenue. And much to my delight, one of the brands that’s showcasing their latest collection is Thomas Sabo. I said yes to the invitation of course, and here’s sharing with you some pictures taken during the SkyAvenue Fashion Week 2017: Time to Light Up Jewellery & Timepiece.

Spectacular Visual Storytelling Through SkySymphony at SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting

It is no secret that Resorts World Genting has somehow become my favourite weekend getaway destination. I’ve been sharing about my escapades in Resorts World Genting quite often on my social media and sometimes, people asks me… “Are you addicted to gambling?” or “Aren’t you bored? It’s almost every other weekend that you are up there,”. Well, first of all, Genting is just 40 minutes drive from home. Second of all, I must correct the perception that while Genting is well known for being the only resort with legal casinos in Malaysia, I am not a gambler, I don’t spend my time in Genting making bets. There’s much more to Resorts World Genting than their casinos. There are plenty of attractions in Resorts World Genting. There’s Chin Swee Caves Temple where you can see beautiful architectures and view, the Important Bird Area in Awana where you can go birdwatching and not to mention that their latest mall, SkyAvenue is not only a shopping heaven for shopaholics, but a paradise for foodies as well.

Speaking of SkyAvenue, here’s sharing one of their latest attraction. No, I’m not going to spam you with the pictures my shopping loot, although I’m guilty of it somehow. What I’d like to share with you is their spectacular visual storytelling through SkySymphony.

Where to Eat in Resorts World Genting: Motorino SkyAvenue

Being somewhat a global village when it comes to food, there are plenty of pizza places in Malaysia, but here’s sharing with you one of my favourite pizza place; Motorino.
image

This pizzeria is located at the newly opened SkyAvenue in Resorts World Genting and as of writing, it is one of the most raved about pizzeria in SkyAvenue. This Brooklyn and East Village pizza place has New York Times food writers hailing it as the best authentic Neopolitan Italian pizza restaurant in New York.

Take a look at the short video to get a better idea of Motorino Pizza. Motorino is owned and operated by Belgian-Italian born chef Mathieu Palombino who makes Neapolitan-style pizza in wood ovens imported from Italy.

image

Motorino is unique in the sense that they have open kitchen and patrons can actually watch the entire process of the kitchen crews making pizzas.

image

During my most recent visit, I was given the privilege to a brief interview session with the man behind Motorino itself; Chef Mathieu Palombino, The Maestro Pizzaiolo of Motorino Pizza. You may read more about him HERE.

So, what to order when you dine here? Well, Motorino pizzeria in SkyAvenue offers more than just pizzas. They have antipasti, desserts and refreshingly concocted beverages too but I won’t be touching that in this write up and will just concentrate on their wonderful Neopolitan pizzas so that you know what to expect when you hop over.

A Selection of Pizzas at Motorino Sky Avenue, Malaysia

Diners can take their pick from nine stellar favourites, which range from the stripped (marinara, margherita and pepperoni) to the supremely Italian (stracchiatella with basil, sea salt and extra virgin olive oil; cremini mushrooms, and colatura di alici featuring cow’s milk mozzarella, red onions, grape tomatoes, white anchovies and sea salt). Also on offer is a Brussel sprout pizza with fior de latte, garlic, pecorino and smoked turkey bacon; cherry stone clam pizza and an egg, turkey chili variation.

To add to your gastronomic excitements? Motorino SkyAvenue also offers over 20 toppings that can be added on to existing pizzas. These include Brussel sprouts, two kinds of anchovies, fresh arugula, buffalo mozzarella and fior de latte (fresh mozzarella made with cow’s milk as opposed to buffalo milk), along with other more conventional ingredients such as turkey, pepperoni and clams. However, purists say that each Motorino pizzas is perfect as it is.

Here’s some all time favourite masterpieces from Motorino: Pepperoni, Del Popolo, Meatball, Amatriciana, Arugula & Bresaola, Cherry Stone Clam, Magherita and Marinara.

Margherita Pizze A vital element of Motorino’s pizzas is not overloading the pie with toppings. Believing that less is definitely more on pizzas, this is without a doubt applicable to the classic Margherita Pizza. Sometimes the simplest ingredients, combined in the simplest of ways, have the power to erase your woes and send you into a world of peaceful bliss. Such is the power of the Margherita pizza. Fresh tomato sauce, chewy mozzarella cheese, some fresh of basil on a crispy crust oiled with extra virgin olive oil was simply divine to have. An ultimate comfort food that can never go wrong.

Marinara Pizze. The pizza’s name, Marinara takes its name from the marinai, or sailors, for whom it was first baked in the 18th century. It is a pizza pie with no cheese and I think Marinara pizzas reflects the skill and passion of a pizza maker’s ability to evoke deep flavors from such simple and very basic ingredients. This traditional Marinara Pizza from Motorino has tomatoes crushed, or blended, sliced fresh garlic, fresh oregano, extra virgin olive oil and maybe some sea salt to taste. This pizza is all about the tomatoes, garlic, oregano and the extra virgin olive oil. Marinara pizza not only allows the skill of the pizza maker to come through, but really showcases the quality of the individual ingredients. A must try if you appreciate refreshingly basic tasting pizzas. Margherita pizzas by Motorino guarantees hassle free gastronomic experience.

Pepperoni Pizze , a classic all time favourite. A pizza pie with tomato sauce base topped with beef pepperoni,  mozerella and pecorino cheese and accompanied with a few dash of extra virgin olive oil, and a hint of fresh chillies and sea salt, Pepperoni Pizze hits all the right notes: meaty, spicy, a little sour and goes really well with the cheesy thin crust. Highly recommended for those who are looking for comfort in familiarity and doesn’t want any strange surprises in their pizzas.

Del Popolo Pizze pie has tomato sauce base and is simply topped with mozzarella cheese, parsley, olives, onions and cured anchovies. Those who are not familiar with anchovies might find cured anchovies toppings is a tad overwhelming on the palate, but pizza lovers who loves extra flavours can this one a go.

Meatball Pizze is simply a pizza pie with tomato sauce base topped with chicken meatballs, mozzarella cheese and basil. A modern rendition of traditional Italian pizza. Children will find this one especially pleasing, I have no doubt.

Amatriciana Pizze. Pizza alla matriciana is a version of Italian pizza topped with traditional Italian pasta sauce based on guanciale, pecorino cheese, and tomato, but Motorino’s version has chicken sausage, scallions and some fresh chillies on it. This classic pizza takes its spiciness from the fresh chillies and its depth of flavor from the chicken sausage. Rich with unique and intense flavour, the pizza offers immense satisfaction to pizza lovers.

Arugula&Bresaola Pizze . Not the pizza that I’m familiar with. I’m usually a religious subscriber to the all time great Pepperoni Pizza. This is my first time chancing upon an Arugula&Bresaola pizza. The pizza is topped with bresaola. Bresaola, which originated in the mountains of Lombardy, is made by salting beef and allowing it to air-dry for several weeks. The air dried and salt-cured beef tenderloin are nicely arranged on top of the pizza and was accompanied with fresh arugula leaves alongside with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Strong tasting, meaty and flavourful, this pizza is great for those who appreciates intense flavours on the palate.

Cherry Stone Clam Pizze. One of Motorino’s unique signature is this; Cherry Stone Clam Pizza. It is basically a simple pizza topped with mozzarella, garlic, parsley butter, olive oil, and shucked clams. Squeeze a wedge of accompanying lemon slice on top of it and you’ll be screaming perfection in no time.

image

Pizzas in Motorino are baked in a special wood-fire oven at 800-900’Celcius. The small mouth and low dome of the ovens actually gets the pizzas cooked in 60 to 90 seconds and therefore, there’s no such thing as a long wait at Motorino. All pizzas are sent to your table at a timely manner.

The pizzas featured above are equally good and individually unique in their own ways, but my personal favourite from Motorino is Pepperoni Pizze and Amatriciana Pizze. I love flavourful pizzas. They’re not only comforting but makes me feel happy as well.

Prices per pizza ranges from RM48- RM64. Genting members may enjoy slightly lower price.

If you are a huge fan of pizzas and haven’t visit Motorino in Sky Avenue, Resorts World Genting, then you might wanna do so soon. The hype is real. The pizzas are magnificent.

Motorino SkyAvenue is located at Level 1, Sky Avenue. Operation hours is from 10 am to 10 pm daily. For more information, please call 03-6101 1118 or visit www.rwgenting.com.

Chef Mathieu Palombino, The Maestro Pizzaiolo of Motorino Pizza

During my most recent visit to Motorino SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting, I was given the privilege to a brief interview session with the man behind Motorino itself; Chef Mathieu Palombino, The Maestro Pizzaiolo of Motorino Pizza.

image

Yours truly and Chef Mathieu Palombino, the owner and Maestro Pizzaiolo of Motorino Pizza. For those who are not familar with the term ‘pizzaiolo’, it is actually an Italian word used to refer to pizza makers.

image

Quoting Chef Mathieu Palombino,
Motorino is, in Italian, a word for “scooter.” It’s an extension of the word “Motori,” which means motor or engine. It’s a little motor, little engine, which is what they use for “cool.”

Chef Mathieu Palombino doesn’t like huge pizzerias and prefers the homey pizzerias, similar to those pizzerias in Italy. “This is going to be a very simple experience. I want you to come in, sit down, order a pizza and enjoy your meal.” he said. Chef Mathieu Palombino is passionate about what he does and can often be seen experimenting with food in the kitchen.

Delving into his background, Chef Mathieu Palombino was trained in the most haute of French traditions and worked in Europe before moving to New York. He was chef de cuisine at BLT Fish when it was given three stars in The New York Times by Frank Bruni in 2005. But for many years Palombino dreamed of making pizza in an intimate restaurant of his own and therefore he did so; and now there’s plenty of Motorino outlets scattered around the world.

When asked about the challenges and his experience in opening Motorino in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting, Chef Mathieu Palombino says there’s not much challenges in establishing Motorino in SkyAvenue, and that Genting Malaysia has been a very good partner since the very beginning. According to Chef Mathieu Palombino, he has no immediate plans so far to open more Motorino outlets in Malaysia.

Unlike others of his generation who tends to find working with younger generation and millennials challenging, Chef Mathieu Palombino loves working with young people. He loves their energy and passion and aspire to inspire more millennials to work in Motorino. He has faith in his pizzaioli, and believes that they will continuosly make the best pizzas for the patrons.

The Belgian-born, French-trained chef, pizzaiolo and entrepreneur Chef Mathieu Palombino believes that all the pizzas in Motorino are delicious in their own ways, but recommends Margherita if one truly wants a taste of true Italian Pizza.

Wearable Artworks: My Sketchbook Shawl by Emma Maembong

I don’t wear hijab on daily basis. I only don hijab if the occasions calls for such dresscode. I do however, have soft spots for beautiful shawls and I usually style them up to pair with my outfits. Shawls are very useful to me, especially when I’m traveling. They not only serve as a fashionable ‘blanket’ whenever I feel cold during those long hours on the bus or on the plane but they make great additions to my limited wardrobe too as I can pair them up with just one plain shirt and yet produces a couple of different looks depending on how you style them. I have plenty of shawls and scarves at home, but a woman can never have enough. I’m constantly on the lookout for pretty shawls to add to my collection and it has come to my attention that a Malaysian artist cum actress, Emma Maembong has launched her shawl collection; My Sketchbook Shawl. Her collections is something worth raving about, I must say.

So what’s unique about her shawl collections? Well, it is common for actors and actresses to come out with their own brand of clothing and use their fame to sell their clothings to their fans but this one’s rather different, as unlike others, the designs of her shawls collections are her very own work of art.

All the shawls in My Sketchbook Shawls collections are also syariah compliance and the length and width of her shawls are more than enough to cover one’s aurah, making her collections a perfect choice for devout Muslims to wear. The shawls are not only stylish, but covers one’s modesty as well.

Interested in getting your hands on one? They are pretty affordable, I assure you. Just hop over to this FB page: https://www.facebook.com/emmasketchbookshawl/
