[ Penang ] KyoChon 1991 Korean Fried Chicken | G Hotel

Finally put an end for my Bangkok post, I had been dragged it for so long and before my next trip I'm going to share some new restaurants that I tried throughout the months. 
I've heard / seen about KyoChon 1991 during my trip to Kuala Lumpur but I've never gotten to try it
until it opened its door to Penangites at G Hotel (right next to the al-fresco zone of Gurney Plaza) and the Korean drama
"My Love from the Star" just gave me a kick to try this place!
We went to KyoChon for early dinner after 2-3 weeks of their opening, the crowd is exaggerating;
it was only 6pm sharp (on Friday) but the indoor is fulled and diners are started to fill up the al-fresco dining area.
We told the staff that we wanted the indoor seats (we can't stand the heat) 
and we only waited 5 minutes to get it.
The indoor area is not very spacious, and if you are okay with the outdoorsy environment, you can get al-fresco dining area without any wait.
KyoChon is famous with their Korean fried chicken and it comes in four flavors for your choice:
Soy Garlic, Red Pepper, Honey and Salsal sauce.
You can make it in complete meal by choosing the combo size and pick any upgrades that available.
The combo meal if definitely worth the price!
Other than the Korean fried chicken, they also provide a la carte menu such as Bulgogi, Kimchi soup, Tteokbokki and etc.
For more details, you may view the KyoChon's menu over here.
The staff served us a bowl of banchan (to be exact, pickles) after we placed the order;
wet tissues and plastic gloves were not served like what mentioned by blogger, it will be served upon request.
The choice of beverages in combo meal are either Sparkling Yuza Fruit Tea or Sparkling Plum Fruit Tea,
we got it one each but the plum fruit tea is a little bit too sour for me, it tastes better after the ice melted. 
Wingette and Drummette (12 pcs) | RM26.90 and Combo Meal M Size | RM11
Out of four flavors,
you can mix Soy Garlic and Red Pepper for your fried chicken as the price for both flavors are the same; 
we were so tempted to have Honey flavor but we knew we can't finish it.
Wingette and Drummette here means chicken wings, 12 pcs is consists of 3 pairs of chicken wings.
If you are not chicken wings lover, you can get drumstick or whole chicken.
we upgraded our steam rice in combo meal to Kimchi Fried Rice with Egg by add-on RM7 for each rice.
The Combo Meal M Size is also comes with clear soups and salads.
By comparing both flavors of the fried chicken, I preferred Soy Garlic flavor as the Red Pepper flavor is quite spicy,
I still can stand the spiciness but my mouth get numb and burning if I get it more.
I like the Soy Garlic as it tasted a little salty but up to my liking, the flavors were bold although not much flesh available.
Something I like about their Korean fried chicken is they aren't greasy at all!
The Kimchi Fried Rice is just nice, nothing to complain about it, we felt to have more after finished our portion.

The price for KyoChon can be quite hefty, in return you will get high quality food and good service,
it's quite worth it for me and I'll definitely come back for the other flavors!

[ Bangkok ] 飞前在Fuji日式料理餐厅吃餐好的!


这将会是曼谷游记里的最后一文咯,用了很长的一段时间才完成这次的曼谷游记,希望可以帮助到要去旅行的朋友!
因为我们的班机是在中午时段,所以略过了早餐,我们就直接在机场找吃去。
Fuji日式料理餐厅在曼谷还蛮出名的,有几间商场可以看到它的踪影,但我们决定要在最后一天才来报到。
进到出入境地区也有不少的餐厅,但Fuji还是堆满了人,最后一张桌子也给我们占领了。
Fuji的店面有点小,所以携带行李前行的你们可能就有点麻烦咯。


我们点的套餐都会附送咖啡果冻,它是在主餐前送上的,
牛奶里放了用浓咖啡做成的果冻,,所以吃/喝起来感觉就很像在享用冰咖啡噢。


Katsu Toji Set | 245泰铢
笨蛋点的猪排套餐,送上来的时候让我们有点错愕因为看起来跟菜单上的照片有出入,哈哈。
除了主食和饭,套餐里还包括了味噌汤,小吃(泡菜),而说好的沙拉却换成了海鲜豆腐,但笨蛋比较喜欢这个。
虽然外貌看起来很普通,但那个煨猪排真的很好吃,吃起来肉质也很多汁。
可惜的是我们发现到原来机场里的Fuji,它的菜单和商场里的Fuji是不一样的,选择的种类少了很多,以至于笨蛋吃不到他看中的食物啊。


Kurobuta Steak & Salmon Teriyaki Set | 310泰铢
我点的则是黑豚猪排和三文鱼套餐,一样的是我也有汤,泡菜和沙拉,
我们发现到菜单上的照片真的是有点骗人啊,黑豚猪排的分量有点少到可怜,跟照片上的完全不同啊!
三文鱼的味道不错,黑豚猪排咬起来有点硬,烤到有点久了吧。


Yaki Gyoza | 115泰铢
最后是我们每到日式餐厅必点的煎饺子,味道普通,但就有点小颗。
比起商场里的Fuji(我们过后去合艾的时候有去Fuji吃多一次),感觉上机场里的Fuji水准可能没那么好,
应该是人流量太多,所以素质就没那么好吧。
想要吃好吃的Fuji日式料理,我还是建议大家到商场里的Fuji享用会比较好!

[ Bangkok ] 高空酒吧Red Sky Bar


本来第一天到曼谷就打算到Red Sky Bar的我们因为某种原因就把它推迟到最后一天了。
它是坐落于Centara Grand的顶楼,会选择它是因为他们有提供买一送一的优惠,
而且因为它是在顶楼,所以可以360度无死角的让你观看曼谷城市的美景,你可以选择你喜欢的位子,慢慢的享受这一切。


可是当我们上到Red Sky Bar时,服务员就跟我们解说有一半的位子已经被人预约来做活动,
好运的我们还是在最后关头找到了位子,但就不是能看到日落的头等位咯。


他们的Happy Hour是每一天的4点到6点,只要在这个时段每个人都能喝上两杯自己点的饮料。
但也许是来之前对他们买一送一的优惠误解了,
本来以为就点一份刚好有两杯可以喝,但服务员解释说他们会先送上一杯饮料,喝完了才会送上另一杯的。


我们只好点了一份Heineken啤酒,和Lime Juice来分着喝,他们还送上了花生来下酒。
也许那时我已经病得很累,整个过程不是很享受就对了;
但庆幸的是天气并不会很热,还好一直都会有大风吹着,我们也一直坐在哪看着天空慢慢的变暗,可惜啊都看不到日落了。


我们坐到差不多6点半就打算走人了,而且人流是越夜越多人啊,我们也不好一直霸占那个位子,哈哈。
果然喝酒这东西并不是很适合我们,在酒吧没事做的我们就一直自拍而已;应该很明显看到我右眼的眼针吧,伤心死了!


Red Sky Bar
地址:55th Floor, Centara Grand, Central World
交通:搭BTS到Chit Lom站,前往Central World的最后端,程搭电梯到55楼

[ Bangkok ] 在Erawan Tea Room品尝贵妇泰式茶点


我很少机会品尝那种贵妇英式下午茶,因为价钱不菲啊,而且我对甜食有点感冒。 
而我无意间发现Erawan Tea Room有提供下午茶,而且价钱还蛮经济的! 
特别的是他们把英式茶点的蛋糕,三明治等改换成泰式的咸与甜盘,在这我们就可一次性品尝泰国传统点心啦!
之前有看到网友都建议在去之前跟Erawan Tea Room做预约,以免人太多没好的位子;
我们到的时候其实顾客不是很多,但因为提早预约了,服务员领我们到有沙发的座位,会比其他木椅来得舒服啊。


Erawan Tea Room是Grand Hyatt旗下所开设的餐厅,除了下午茶,他们其实还提供了正餐呢!
里头的设计都很高档,空间非常大,座位之间也有一定的距离。
除了在这里用餐,如果你们喜欢的话,都可以在这里购买些产品当手信的;
除了餐具(超喜欢他们荷叶设计的盘子),他们还售卖些自家制作的果酱,茶叶,咖啡等,每个产品的包装都很华丽。


Afternoon Tea | 600泰铢(1人分)
一人分的下午茶包含了15种的茶点,因为我们只是要试吃,所以就点了一人分,但我们都觉得分量超多的,吃得很撑啊。
虽然是一人分,但服务员却送上了两杯的饮料,给他们的贴心一个赞!
饮料可以在咖啡和茶这两者选一,冷的或热的都可以,我们当然点了奶茶啦,送上来的时间真的吓到了,很大一杯噢。
茶点是用下午茶惯用的三层式托盘送上的,拍了一张照后觉得很不方便,干脆把盘子都放下来比较容易拿茶点,
服务员见状也帮忙把铁架拿回去,好吧,我承认我真的不适合当贵妇。
之前说过这里的下午茶很特别,已经改良成泰式的传统点心,所以甜,咸,酸,辣的茶点样样都有。


因为菜单上没中文,我也不好乱翻译,就直接用英文来介绍这些茶点吧(每隔一段时间,有些茶点会有所更变噢)。
1. Steamed Flower-shaped Dumpling Filled with Crabmeat
2. Deep-fried Prawn in Tempura Batter
3. Grilled Curry Fish on Lemongrass Stick
4. Spicy Northern Pork Sausage
5. Spicy Pomelo Salad with Shrimp


6. Pandan Chocolate Coated Crispy Sesame Roll
7. Crispy Rice Pudding with Taro, Corn, Pumpkin or Spring Onion
8. Sweet or Salty Crispy Bean Crepes
9. Mango with Sticky Rice
10. Sweet Bean Paste in Fruit Shapes


11. Thai Banana Fritter
12. Scone with Whipped Cream and Home-made Strawberry Jam
13. Pistachio Eclair
14. Coffee Opera Cake
15. Blueberry Macaroon


总的来说,这还是我们第一次吃到除了甜以外,还有别的味道的下午茶,感觉还蛮特别的。
这么多茶点里,最喜欢的就是Mango with Sticky Rice了,
有些茶点是我在这几天都会看到的,但就是提不起劲去买来吃,所以现在一次性把这些都吃了,还不错噢!


Erawan Tea Room by Grand Hyatt
地址:494 Rajdamri Road, Bangkok 10330, Thailand.
交通:搭BTS到Chit Lom站,2号出口前往Erawan Bangkok商场,Erawan Tea Room就在2楼

[ Bangkok ] 来自东京的风格餐厅On The Table : Tokyo Cafe


在曼谷的那几天,除了要非常早出门之余,其他天能的话我们都会睡到自然醒;所以我们会比较常吃brunch的。
Brunch的选择相对的会比早餐来得多,因为很多餐厅大多都是早上11点左右开店的。
本来安排了这天还要吃些道地的泰式餐点当brunch,但那间店就迟迟不开店,里面店员的态度有爱理不理的,
所以我们决定就转向隔壁间的On The Table : Tokyo Cafe(当然这家餐厅也在我的后备名单里),
这家餐厅是提供日式洋食的,而且选择真的很多!


因为才刚开店,所以我们顺理成章的成为他们第一桌的客人,过后进来的顾客也很多,感觉这家店还蛮出名的说。
On The Table这一季的主题是“Scrumptious Circus”,所以餐厅都布置得色彩缤纷的,小孩儿来到一定会很兴奋吧。


Green Tea Matcha Latte Float | 150泰铢
都是绿茶控的我们在菜单上看到这杯饮料是就非常兴奋了,不管三七二十一就下单的,虽然价格有点小贵。
在饮料送上来后,我们直呼超值得的,因为分量真的很大啊!
光看那绿茶的颜色就觉得非常好喝了,底下的是浓浓的绿茶拿铁,但拿铁的味道不会太重,正好是我能接受的,
上方还加了一球绿茶冰淇淋和草莓片,搅拌起来和真的很棒,浓浓的绿茶香味就一直留在我们的口里。


Spaghetti Cream Ebiko with Deep-Fried Ebi | 190泰铢
都说了这里出名日式的洋食,我们怎能不点他们的洋食呢,在意大利面的系列里,他们就强推这一道,
完全就是日洋合璧嘛,综合了日式和样式的精华。
通常奶油系列的意大利面会淋上少许的奶油汁,但这Spaghetti Cream就没有,送上来是感觉比较干,没汁的。
奇怪的是,吃起来就那么的滑口,而且还有浓浓的奶油味,超赞的!
虽然看起来的分量不是很大,但我们吃起来就觉得刚刚好啊,因为奶油和起司会让我们有饱足感。


Chicken Stew with Omu Rice | 240泰铢
另一道呢我们就决定点回日式的食物来分享,显然笨蛋还是对蛋包饭情有独钟啊。
On The Table的蛋包饭跟Omu的有点不一样,但视觉上还是觉得很不错,尤其那一大块的鸡腿肉啊。
酱汁是混合了咖喱和番茄的味道,吃起来很可口,甜甜的外加一点辣,很是开胃,
值得赞许的是那块鸡腿肉,肉已经炖得非常软嫩,轻轻一撕就被撕开了,而且肉质都不会硬,非常好吃。


吃完意大利面时有个小惊喜,盘上印着:
At the table one doesn't grow old.


On The Table : Tokyo Cafe
地址:4th Floor, Siam Center Rama 1 Road, Pathumwan, Siam Center, Bangkok 10330, Thailand.
交通:搭BTS到Siam站,1号出口到Siam Center
