because i enjoy japanese buffets, because everyone was raving about it, i finally tried out the up and happening taiwanese eatery called Jogoya at Starhill, KL the other day. the price is pretty steep, ranging from RM68++ to RM88++, depending on what time you go.
we were asked to first pay for our entrance which we thought was a bit funny. usually buffet restaurants tend to threaten customers with food wastage penalty, right? i don’t think they do it here, but correct me if i’m wrong. ;P
there was food at every nook and corner of the restaurant! that little clip there? it’s your table number and for food to be cooked, be it tempura or teppanyaki or soup, you drop the clip into the bowl at the display console and the cook will prepare the dish of your choice and it will be delivered to your table. you don’t have to stand around and wait. 😉
[As of 28 February 2013, Sin Seng Nam is closed indefinitely]
Recently I’ve been eating at this coffee shop before going to court. It serves really great toasted bread with kaya (pandan paste) and butter and also yummy breakfast set!!
It’s also very popular among lawyers as it is located opposite the Malaysian Bar Council.
Other than their toast bread, their Hainanese chicken rice and pork chop are excellent.
The block of shophouses in which Sin Seng Nam Restaurant is located was built around 1906. In Sin Seng Nam Restaurant, pictures of the old Kuala Lumpur hang along the walls of Sing Seng Nam Restaurant. It’s an interesting sight.
Their service is sometimes quite terrible. I have, on couple of occasions, got screwed by the Indonesian waiters.
Me: Eh, Ada butter tak? (Do you have butter?)
Woman: Mengapa tadi tak cakap??? (Why didnt you ask for it just now?)
I thought she would come back with butter, but 10 mins later…no sign of my butter..fugger..
However, complaining to the boss would be of no use at all because the boss is worst than them…
Chuo Ming overheard a conversation between the boss and a Caucasian tourist.
Tourist: Hi..what does this say in the menu?
Boss: Read it yourself. I got no time to explain to you. If you dont like it, go to another restaurant.
