The Curry Pork Ribs Rice is heavenly — the pork is so succulent and the curry is even better than those you eat in the prison. If you are a late comer during lunch hour, you’ll feel sorry for not coming earlier as it is easily snapped up by the hungry working people. And yes, just like many of its other ala carte meals, Curry Pork Ribs Rice have limited orders each day.

The Fried Rice is just as good as most items available on the menu. Fried Rice comes with Chinese sausage (Lup Cheong), bits of Luncheon Pork meat, eggs, onions and prawns. I’ll have to say this is one of the best Chinese Fried Rice I have ever eaten.

Restoran Sin Kee also has tonnes of other items on its extensive menu and it’s a no wonder that it is usually fully-packed during lunch hour.

Vietnamese Cuisine – Co Do @ Mid Valley Megamall

Co Do serves authentic Vietnamese Cuisine and has won several accolades including one from Tatler Magazine Malaysia. Co Do is located on the 3rd floor of Mid Valley Megamall, same floor as GSC. Don’t get confused by Little Vietnam, which is located besides Co Do. Co Do is actually the one on the right, in which you have to take the staircase to go up to the restaurant.

Co Do's Set B
Clockwise from top: Dragonfruit Salad, Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu, Tomato Fried Rice, Lotus Root Pancake and Vietnamese Spring Roll

Co Do's Soya Bean and Iced Lime Tea
Co Do’s Soya Bean and Iced Lime Tea come with Set B as well

Co Do’s Dim Sum – Trio & Main Course Set for Two which comes out to about RM35 for two person have four sets for the diners to choose from. We had Set B which consists of Dragonfruit Salad, Lotus Root Pancake, Vietnamese Spring Roll, Served with Tomato Fried Rice & Chicken or Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu and two glasses of either Iced Lime Tea or Soya Bean. It is quite a steal as the price is RM 35.90 for all these, more than enough for two person.

The Dragonfruit Salad is delicious and fresh, even though mixing bits of fried squid with white Dragonfruit to create the salad is a little unusual. Lotus Root Pancake is crispy and savory, while the Vietnamese Spring Roll is as good. Tomato Fried Rice is delicious — the rice is savory, seasoned with garlic and contains bits of yam, it almost tastes like yam rice. Beef Ball Soup Hu Tieu is also delectable, as the beef ball is aplenty and irresistible while the noodles are quite scrumptious.

Co Do's Soda with Sour Plum
Co Do’s Soda with Sour Plum

Soda with Sour Plum is likely the biggest rip off as the Soda is F&N Soda water added with half a glass of sour plum.

Co Do's Vitamin C Burst

Vitamin C Burst consists of Orange, Calamansi & Starfruit. It surely has a lot of Vitamin C, for those health-conscious people.

Co Do's Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup
Co Do’s Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup

Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup is quite mediocre compared to any of the food in Set B.

Co Do's Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup
Co Do’s Hanoi Chicken Fragrant Soup Mee

Hanoi Chicken Fragrant Soup Mee is also so-so and there’s nothing to shout about.

Overall, the Dim Sum – Trio & Main Course Set for Two is a steal and you should order this as it is not only worth every single cent you will spend, the food are amazing, especially the scrumptious dim sum.

Price

  • Set B – RM 35.00
  • Tamarind Seafood Noodle Soup – RM 12.90
  • Hanoi Chicken Fragrant Soup Mee – RM 8.50

Set Lunch – Rabbit Cafe @ Wisma Cosway

Rabbit Cafe, which is a newly opened restaurant in Wisma Cosway, has introduced set lunches that are so attractive, most of its tables are full during lunch hour. Rabbit Cafe has taken over the location of a restaurant formerly as Aunty Mama.

There are more than a dozen of set lunches to choose from and no matter which set you order, each set comes with either fruits, fruit rojak or vege rojak, the main course and coffee / tea or jasmine green tea.

While the Fruits and Coffee are quite ordinary, the Fruit Rojak is quite tasty. However, Jasmine Green Tea is something you should not order.

Rabbit Cafe's Special Fried Rice

Special Fried Rice may sounds special, but there’s really nothing to shout about. I would prefer the fried rice in Studio S anytime.

Rabbit Cafe's Kam Heong Chicken with Rice
Rabbit Cafe’s Kam Heong Chicken with Rice

Kam Heong Chicken with Rice is somewhat more special than the fried rice and worth mentioning.

Still, for the price of RM 9.90 (not including tax), is not really a bargain unless of course, if you are the lazy type who prefer to have everything — food, drinks and desserts (fruits or fruit rojak) at one go.

Price

  • Set Meal 2 – RM 9.90
  • Set Meal 8 – RM 9.90
