Today is Food Day
Yuen Garden Dim Sum,
D'lish and Ma Maison

Today is indeed a food day. It started with really delicious dim sum in Yuen Garden in Bandar Puchong Jaya. For someone who does not quite fancy dim sum, I really like it here.

In the afternoon, I drove Calvin to Boys Brigade and stopped over at D’lish in Midvalley for a latte, a wi-fi connection and a place where I can get some work done. As I walked into the deli, I found Noel walking in front of me, going towards the table I spotted right from when I walked through the door. He was quite surprised to see me. We talked a bit, catching up on things, since I have not seen him for awhile.

D'lish is a great place to be, except when there are teenage girls around. I could not understand why they need to talk on top of their voices. And their topics of discussion and choice of words left nothing to be desired - absolutely atrocious, coming from the mouths of 16 to 18 year old girls. Mind you, this is not the first I am encountering loud chattering girls in D'lish.

Enough of venting. As I was saying, D'lish is a great place to be. Good food, good ambience (when the crowd is right, that is), good coffee, average prices, free wi-fi connection availability, and good coffee. What else could you ask for?

D'lish serve excellent food. These are its array of cakes and cupcakes, though my visit today had found them featuring a new line-up of desserts and cakes. I packed some home and I still have a cup of Creme Caramel and Banana Mascarpone Cheesecake in the fridge ... mmm ...

I had D'lish's potato salad with rosemary - it was the best in the world.

This deli either has a very witty owner or they had hired some really good ad agents. You could spend some good minutes just looking through the various lines they had, either chalked or printed, on the floor, on the wall, on food containers, on its drink labels, what have you.

Then it was dinner in Ma Maison. SH was recommended this place, which was said to serve pretty good French food at good prices. Off we went. We ordered the foie gras for SH and I, escargot for Calvin, with cod, veal and steak as the main course. We were stuffed! But not our wallets, not only was it on cash terms, it was not averagely priced but more on the high side.

See that? Cash only ...

This little ducky graced my plate. It was a good touch.
