[Food Review] Sushi King @ Sunway Pyramid

In a blink of an eye, July is coming to an end and we're going to be welcoming August tomorrow. In Japan, Summer Festival is one of their most anticipated culture to enjoy the fireworks, dance and food. Sounds amazing no?

Now, you don't have to travel all the way to the land of rising sun to enjoy Japanese street food because Sushi King is bringing the scrumptious mouth-watering delicacies to Malaysia so everyone can enjoy the gourmet spread offered on streets of Japan this season. 

Spicy Edamame (RM4.00)
This season brings a little bit surprise to the dishes. Edamame with spicy chilli flakes, totally gives a kick to your tastebuds that you'll never forget.

Spicy Salmon Nigiri (RM5.00) 
If someone would like to give me a year supply of food, I'll choose raw salmon because the freshness of the fish taste so good and sweet. Fresh raw salmon is just perfect BUT adding local taste of spicy chilli flakes on top of it would definitely give you that twist and you'll be craving it for more!

Unagi Nigiri (RM5.00)
Who doesn't love Unagi? It's my second choice after salmon. As usual, that delicious sliced eel is just so juicy and the texture is so smooth. OMG, so goooooood~~

Pumpkin Tenpura (RM5.00) 
Again, I need to tell you that I super love pumpkin. Deep fried the battered pumpkin slices at the right temperature, serve while it is hot. Goodness, I'm telling you this crunchiness is a dish that couldn't be missed! (Psst, all of us couldn't stop eating it)

Takoyaki Tenpura (RM6.90)
This takoyaki is slightly different because because it has the nice crunch on the outer layer before you bite into the savoury goodness of the deep fried octopus ball. Drizzle some okonomi sauce and mayonnaise on top of the takoyaki, the taste has gone up to a higher level.

Kushiage Moriawase (RM11.90)
Kushiage Moriawase features 5 types of Japanese skewers that are deep fried to perfection: prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans. Try the scallop! It is so huge man! Not to mention that it tastes really good too! Please do remember to dip them into the okonomi sauce cause it provides enough taste to the skewers.

Kushiage Bento (RM16.90)
Bento is something like all-in-one kind of thing. Kushiage Bento consists of deep fried salmon steak and Japanese style deep fried skewered prawn, scallop, chicken nugget, mushroom and long beans. Once again, they're served with okonomi sauce too! With the amount of delicious goodness in this bento, I'm sure your tummy will feel the satisfaction to the max!

Beef/Chicken Tonpei Yaki (RM9.90)
Tonpei Yaki is a very popular dish in Japan consisting of the meat, shredded cabbage, crunchy fritters wrapped and garnished with delicious okonomi sauce and mayonnaise. Chicken tonpei yaki is made with grilled juicy chicken. I personally enjoy the second option, beef Tonpei Yaki as the beef was being pan fried so well along with the onions that I'm enjoying it every bite of it.

Chicken Yaki Udon (RM13.90) 
This fried Udon is something that you should look forward too because this Japanese wheat noodles is fried together in delicious okonomi sauce, making it such mouth-watering dish. Plus, it is also served with mixed vegetables and deep fried chicken nuggets.

Ramune (RM6.90) 
Ramune is really well-known carbonated drink in Japan. They even have the challenge of taking out the marble inside the bottle without breaking the glass. In Sushi King, you get to bring back the marble by twisting the bottle cap. (Don't let them know I'm the one who tell you okay? HAHAHAHA) 

And....Ramune is photo taking worthy too! 


The Japanese Street Food Promotion in Sushi King has been going on during the month of July and will continue on August as well! You can now stop by your nearest Sushi King and have a try on this not-to-be-missed menu! 


This seasonal promotion is for a limited time only and valid while stocks last.

[Review] TruDtox


Constipation is one of my biggest enemy. I only visit the toilet couple days a week, sometimes I would go only once a week. Yeap, it's that bad. When you don't flush out constantly, all the unhealthy stuff will stuck inside your body. Then, you'll see acne starts to pop out, constipation starts to come and etc. All the matters mentioned above are actually referring to myself because I do have lots of scene and my constipation is just terrible. 

But not too long ago, I was introduce to TruDtox whereby it actually helps to cleanse and strengthen the body's own natural detox organs. 


TruDtox is Swiss multi award-winning detox tea since 2007, containing 100% natural and organically-cultivated herbs from Europe and certified as food by the Ministry of Health. Hence, it is safe to be taken regularly without resulting in bowel dependency and it contains no artificial colouring, bulking agents, pesticides, or caffeine. 


Benefits of detoxification includes:
 Flush away toxins & waste
 Promote regularity
 Relieve digestive discomforts
 Promote better absorption of nutrients
 Improve metabolism
 Strengthen immune system
 Promote health, vitality & energy

1. Prepare hot cup of water.

2. Insert the tea bag into the cup.

3. Place the cover and wait for 20-30 minutes.

4. Your drink is ready! 


How long does it take for TruDtox to work?
Within the first hour of consumption, you will tend to urinate more often. After 5-10 hours, you might feel a minor urge of bowel movement. You can choose to take it before you sleep or after you wake up. For my case, I take it at night so that I can finish up the business after 8-10 hours and then get myself ready for work. (Note: At the beginning stage, you might not get use to the pain yea but it'll get better as you continue)


Review: 
After consuming TruDtox for about two weeks, it definitely helps me on reducing the tummy bloat and digestive discomforts. I consume about 2-3 times a week by brewing the tea bag in a hot cup of water for 30 minutes because I like the colour to be darker and the taste to be heavier as the effect is also better. For someone who constantly having constipation, I really like how TruDtox gently purify my body and improves overall health! Now, I actually visit the toilet almost everyday which is really good. (People, you can stop asking me to visit doctors now. Haha) Also, my acne has been slowly reducing as well and I've been drinking lots of water since then.



Trudtox retails at RM29.50 for a pack of 5 teabags and RM88.50 for a pack of 15+2 teabags. It is available in most leading pharmacies such as Caring, Watsons, Guardian, Alpha, Alpro, Healthlane, Vitacare etc as well as independence pharmacies nationwide.


If you're looking into purchasing this product online, you can do so too by heading over to www.hishop.my. Simply use the code SENRINING and you'll get 15% rebate when you purchase TruDtox.

[Food Review] TGV Indulge @ One Utama

Isn't it nice to enjoy movie with an reclinable sofa and a blanket that keeps you warm? With a personalised call-waiter-service too? You can now enjoy such comfort in TGV Indulge while watching your favourite movie. 

Indulge is TGV's latest unique cinema concept that has its own private ticketing counter, lounge and dining area. Not to forget the two exclusive cinema halls that can accommodate 32 and 40 pax respectively.



Indulge is specifically targeted at those who enjoy exclusivity and the finer things in life in order to ensure that the customers enjoy here greatly differs from the usual fun and “chillaxing” cinema experience that the brand is already noted for. 

Not only for the discerning cinema-goer, Indulge is also suitable for private and corporate functions with catering provided regardless with or without a movie screening such as product launches, wedding proposals, press conferences and also company employee nights.





In addition, the in-house chef is professional, efficient, thoughtful as he has more than 40 years of experience in Asian and Western fusion cooking. 


Smoked Duck Salad
I just love appetiser because it helps to trigger my stomach to welcome the main course. Just love the super juicy smoked duck breasts that serve with mesclun greens, capsicum & skew with kiwi and balsamic dressing. 

Pumpkin Salad
I'm a complete sucker for pumpkin. This roasted pumpkin leave the sweet honey taste on our tastebuds. Perfectly dress with rocket leaves, cherry tomatoes and capsicums.


Grilled Salmon
Love the salmon, the meat, the skin and the lemon butter sauce! Do ensure you eat it when it's still hot yea! Not to forget the seasonal vegetables (love the mushroom!)

Grilled Lamb Rack
If you're a fan of lamb, do go for this! Rosemary sauce complements really well with the moist and juicy lamb. Vegetable is nutritious, remember to finish it yea! 

Cajun Chicken
This is one of my favourite of the night too! Superb love the well-grilled boneless chicken thigh. The meat was so soft and nicely marinated with the cajun seasoning.




Stuffed Potato Skins
Next would be entreé whereby the crispy potato skins is my favourite. Stuffed with the awesome turkey bacon & rich mozzarella, drizzle some mayo to add a bit of sour taste to it.


Lamb Koftas
Moving towards middle eastern cuisine - Lamb Koftas. Rolling the lamb patties into meatballs and marinated with lots of spices definitely add the kick to the taste. If it's too heavy for you, do try it with the green salad as it complements with the koftas.


Panna Cotta
No matter how hungry you are, there is always a space for dessert. I really enjoy this Italian cooked cream that serve with raspberry sauce, they are just perfect for each other. Served with strawberry to add on little bit of texture. 

Nutty Tortilla Banana
First time I'm tasting tortilla fill with peanut butter, cornflakes and freshly slice banana. New experience but worth to try! Sorry that I couldn't give much comment on this as I'm not really peanut butter fan. (I'm sorry!!) Peanut butter lover should give this a go, heard that it's really good. Hehe



If you're worrying of which dish you should choose, take all of them! Hahaha. Just kidding. Well, some of Indulge’s signature dishes include Smoked Duck Salad, Pumpkin Salad, Grilled Salmon served with lemon butter sauce, Grilled Lamb Rack, Cajun Chicken and Panna Cotta. 

Indulge is opened from 11am with tickets priced at RM45 (meals not included). 

For my personal opinion, I think that it's worth to go for a try if you would like to enjoy comfortable yet exciting movie night out with your love one, girlfriends/boyfriends and etc! As for the price of the food, it's pretty affordable as it costs about RM20-RM30 for main course. Plus, you can bring it to the cinema hall too! I tried the desserts in the hall and it was such a great experience! I wish I could stay there forever. Hehehe
