Kenji in KL 2017
The last time I met Kenji in Malaysia was back in 2015 when he was visiting family. KH arranged for a lunch gathering at Hailam Kopitiam, Jalil Link. Why Hailam Kopitiam? KH thinks highly of the nasi lemak there, plus they serve some other Malaysian delights that Kenji might enjoy. Kenji was a bit flu-ish (didn't affect his cuteness), but he made an appearance anyway. At least it didn't affect his appetite for nasi lemak, roti canai, and prawn noodles. Glad to know his F&B business was doing well, and he and his hubby would be venturing into another franchise soon. An exciting time for them.
Knowing Kenji, he could never resist dessert. Thought to bring him to Cafe Ame Soeur, but it was fully-booked. Tried our luck at The Owls Cafe, and thankfully they could squeeze us in. They had some seasonal Christmas items, so we gave them a try. The Christmas waffle was "The Rudolph". It was so cute.
Mum made tang yuan, so I invited them to my sister's place for a taste. Thought that they could see the Monsters too, but they suddenly went out for a swim. They didn't stay for long as KH had a next appointment.
A family Christmas dinner was arranged in the evening at Restoran Lek Lek, Seri Kembangan. Of all the dishes we ordered, I was most impressed with the Two Flavour Grouper. Most of the flesh was filleted and stir-fried with spring onions and ginger, then reassembled with the rest of the carcass that was done up sweet and sour style. Excellent!
The Monsters wanted cake after dinner, so we visited Black Horse Cafe that wasn't far from the restaurant. The cakes were dry and spongy, but the little ones didn't mind. The drinks were also quite mediocre, and took ages to come.
