Restoran Malaysia

Date: March 2010
Location: 815 Major Mackenzie Dr E, Richmond Hill, Ontario

Recently, I went to Restoran Malaysia with my C.C. I have been trying to bring my C.C. there couple of times but this restaurant are always full and they closed on Monday. Reservation for dinner is highly recommended.  This time I visited them during lunch time at around 2pm so there was no line up at all haha. The portion of their dishes are in average size and it fills me up We ordered from their lunch menu: Pad Thai $8, Penang Fried Kuay Teow $7.5 and hot beverages Teh Tarik $3.

Pad Thai
I love their Pad Thai because the sauce is not made from Ketchup

Penang Fried Kuay Teow
Wok fried flat noodle with dark soy sauce, shrimps, egg, sprouts, chives and chill sauce
Their flat noodle is thicker than normal Chinese flat noodle. I love the hint of spiciness as well

Teh Tarik 拉茶
A direct translation of Teh Tarik is "pulled tea". It is a very popular beverage in Malaysia
"pulling" = the pouring process from one cup to the other
This action cool the tea down and mix the condensed milk with the tea together

I haven't update my blog for so long. My C.C. kept all the pictures so I didn't have a chance to a hold of them. Anyway, This time I want to share my experience with Joe Maggiano with everyone. I've been to Joe Maggiano many times. I found their food to be delicious and with a reasonable cheap price. I have tried their oysters before ($10.99 for 6). It was a very good deal and the oysters were fresh. This time my C.C. and I ordered their pasta dishes (Penne ~$14.99, and Spaghetti ~$11.99) and their homemade strawberry cheesecake ($5.99). Yum! I will definitely try their oven bake pizza next time!

Bread Sprinkled with Olive Oil and Diced Garlic
The bread was soft and it tasted very good with the olive oil and garlic

Penne with Creamy Tomato Vodka Sauce
Penne was fresh and I love the favorable tomato vodka sauce. Nicely balanced!

Spaghetti with Clams in a White Sauce
I wish the pasta has a bit more sauce because it is not as favorable as the other dishes

Strawberry Cheese Cake
This is a very delicious homemade cheese cake. Highly Recommended
The chef baked different cake everyday so make sure you ask to see if they save a slice in the fridge
