Winnie’s Lemony Herbs Baked Chicken with Vegetables

15 Nov

Lately, I was bored with regular rice with dishes. Hence, I went and check to ingredients made available in my refrigerator, thinking probably I can make something western for dinner instead. So, I found some chicken meat, lemon and dry herbs. So I came up with something tasty, flavour filled and yet, it spices up your senses  gradually. The taste? Well, it’s spicy, sour, sweet, salty…AND It’s yummy and healthy..

Now, let me share you, my very own ‘Winnie’s Baked Lemony Herbs Chicken with Vegetables’ recipe:

Lala Chong Seafood Restaurant, Kg. Sg. Kayu Ara (PJ)

1 Nov

Last Friday, my colleagues and I went to try out another seafood outlet, namely, Lala Chong Seafood Restaurant in Kampung Sungai Kayu Ara near Damansara Utama. Rumor has it, that the food at this outlet is much nicer than the other one which is located near NZX, Ara Damansara. Also to note, this seafood outlet is actually pork-free, so everyone would be able to enjoy it.

There were 14 of us, and surprisingly we were all fitted in the same BIG table. By the way, thanks to my colleague, Kenny, below are the pictures of the sumptuous seafood they offer. We ordered a feast of 10 dishes, along with 14 plates of rice, not forgetting 2 teapots of Chinese tea, which all in all costs us a grand total bill of RM360.
