In 2010, Pacific Coffee first entered Malaysia and I was at the launch.

Today, 4 years later, I stood and watched almost the same people cutting the ribbon at the launch of Melaka 1st Pacific Coffee Flagship Store @ Dataran Pahlawan Melaka Megamall!Read More
Fresh from last year’s Savour 2013 I flew into Singapore in high anticipation of Savour 2014.
In an almost similar manner, Savour 2014 boasts of 18 award winning restaurants, Michelin-starred chefs, 50 signature dishes, free Celebrity Chef masterclasses, workshops and demonstrations and the world’s best produce for sampling at the Gourmet Village.Read More
Since I’m on the subject of yong tau foo and best fishballs in Melaka (have you read my latest post – best fishballs in Bee Bee Hiong ? It’s HERE if you haven’t! ), I decided to keep the momentum going with this yong tau foo in Restoran Dong Fung on Jalan Temenggor which I had visited last month.Read More
Good fishballs/fish paste takes skills, patience and of course a great recipe.
I’m not particularly excited about yong tau foo but I do go a bit crazy over fishballs. I love them springy with genuine fish flavour (oh duhh) and bursting with the natural sweetness of the sea.
A high order I know, with the perfectly spherical machine-formed, MSG-fied and flour laden ones that all of us are subjected to these days that it’s possible to even forget what a really good fishball is supposed to taste like.
I have a backlog of articles for my Melaka good food (subjective of course) guide and here I am back in Melaka again.
When will I ever finished posting about all the wonderful food I ate?
Becky’s 1 Minute Summary:
What: Japanese casual dining.
What to order here: Definitely the hot plate set (both meats and seafood). Though it is a Japanese restaurant, my sashimi set (set lunch) and the Rainbow Roll (sushi) was just fair. The hamburg with egg (set lunch) was good though.
Overall experience: Lunch sets are pretty value for money considering the quality, location and portion. But what was really distinguished this outlets from others would be the Yogan sets.
Price: Set lunches are reasonable for the quality and taste. Ala carte and dinner meals are pretty KL standard kind of prices unless you order expensive meats like we did. For example the Saga beef was RM150++ per 100g.
For the long story, read on.
Being a regular at Publika, I knew about Ju.Ne but had dismissed it as ‘just another Japanese restaurant‘. My perception changed when I found out that my gourmet friend Fern highly favoured it. Fern is well travelled, and I know she’s a discerning gourmet as well.
My curiosity piqued, we arranged for a lunch date.
Decor and ambiance- wise Ju.Ne is as basic as it gets. Nonetheless, it’s the food that matters right?Read More
