Fashion Updates: Corshacomo #1

I’ve always been more drawn to Korean fashion – the clothes are more feminine and the cutting seems to fit me better. As such, I’m happy to announce this collaboration between Bangsar Babe and online fashion store, Corshacomo.

Corshacomo started in 2013 and sells clothing and accessories imported from Korea. So far, the outfits I’ve worn from Corshacomo fit me well and the quality is quite good considering the affordable pricing. :)

Sunday Buffet Brunch at F Buffalo, Bangsar

P1190955

A great way to spend Sunday

There’s nothing I love more than a good Sunday brunch. Throw in bubbly into the equation and that’s even better. Most brunches in KL are priced from RM200 onwards, and that excludes tax and service charge.

Cava and ice lemon tea

Mimosa

F Buffalo’s Sunday Brunch Buffet cost RM99++ per person inclusive of free flow mimosa. Depending on your luck, you might be able to ask for cava straight up. But I like the idea of alcoholic orange juice in a champagne flute so mimosa is good.

Assorted cured meat and fresh bread with olive oil

I was here twice – once for the brunch review and most recently with a good friend. The appetiser selection is small – a salad or two, pizza, fresh bread, cold cuts, cheese and soup. You also get a choice of main course; pork sausage with bacon and scrambled egg, seared beef tartare with condiments, smoked salmon egg benedict, and foie gras and egg.

Foie gras and egg

I tried all, save for the beef tartare. That wasn’t available during the review and when I was there the second time, I already knew what I wanted – foie gras and egg. That was decadent stuff. The foie gras was cooked just right and paired beautifully with the soft poached egg and mushroom veloute.

Mushroom soup

Portions are smallish, presumably because it’s brunch. The smoked salmon egg benedict was not bad but I preferred the pork sausage with bacon and scrambled egg. Soups are served on rotation basis; on my first visit, it was mushroom. Nothing ostentatious but good enough to be eaten with bread.

Coffee is part of brunch

Vanilla butter cupcake and mango panna cotta

Coffee is also available, but limited to one cup per customer. While the brunch selection is comparatively small, you’re able to try most of the items. Plus, the mimosa sure helps lubricate the entire experience.

*F Buffalo is now a non-halal restaurant.

Nasi Kandar Yong Suan, Ipoh

One of the many things I love to eat in Ipoh is Nasi Kandar Yong Suan, also known as Nasi Ganja. The term ganja came about because die hard fans claim that the rice is incredibly addictive. Housed in Yong Suan Restoran, the queue can be very long depending on what time you get there. rif and I popped by at 4pm, so there wasn’t much of a crowd.

There’s just something about the curry… #tasty

That also meant most of their items were sold out. They usually offer more than 18 dishes but it is the ayam merah – chicken, marinated with spices, fried and coated with thick curry gravy – that takes the limelight. I went for my usual; rice with ayam merah, telur masin and kuah campur.

Nasi Ganja

If you love a saucy nasi kandar, ask for ‘kuah banjir’ to make sure the rice is thoroughly flavoured. I always do that. This nasi kandar is different from the Penang version; it has more lemak and packs a wallop of heat. If you’re a chili wuss, have a glass of cold drink on standby.

The salted egg wasn’t special, but it was a good addition to the nasi kandar. Mash it into small pieces and mixed it up with your rice and curry. My meal cost RM8 inclusive of a drink. Premium items like prawns and fish egg generally cost more, so take note.
