Nana's Green Tea, Gardens Mall, Midvalley City

I'm back to blogging!
The past semester has been too hectic.

My friends and I went to check out the much raved bout, Nana's Green Tea at Gardens Mall.

We arrived around 7pm, and the shop was fully packed.
We had to wait in line for awhile, I would say we did wait quite long, about 15 - 20 minutes?

If you go during lunch time or dinner time, it'll definitely be packed, no surprise there.
But besides those hours, you can walk in and get a table easily :)
We actually passed by Nana's earlier, but we decided to have dinner elsewhere and have Nana's for dessert :)

I would say that everyone that likes green tea should come and try!
They had sooo many variation of green tea drinks here!

So we ordered a parfait and a slushy.
Here's the photo from the menu for comparison ;)

They have so many variations of drinks, it was kinda hard to decide at first.
I was gonna snap a photo of the menu to show here,
BUT, the waiter just had to snatch it away from me after we ordered, while I was still browsing through. It did annoy me but I didn't want to make a fuss.
That was very rude of him. Even though you're rushing to do your work and there's a lot of customers, you should pay attention to the one you're attending to, right?
Why snatch the menu away when I'm still browsing through?!

Okay end of rant.

 Matcha Kanten Slushy; RM9.80 

This wasn't too sweet, and I could still taste the slightttt bitterness of green tea. 
I liked the Kanten jelly, which is actually Japanese for agar-agar.  

 Matcha "Warimochi" Parfait; RM19.80

Now, this is the highlight of the day.
Everythinggg made it such a good combination. 
From the bottom layer it was a layer of Kanten jelly (agar-agar) with Matcha syrup, followed by vanilla ice cream, corn flakes and topped with Matcha ice cream, mochi, red bean paste and topped with whipped cream drizzled with Matcha syrup. 

Look at that mochi!
I personally loved the mochi and the red bean paste the most. 
There wasn't much green tea flavour for this. 
The mochi, which is actually bracken starch dipped in Kinako, 
was so chewy and soft. Loved it!

Overall I would say the desserts are really good,
but it is quite expensive.
I understand that green tea is not cheap, but it'd be better if the prices we lowered, or if they have promotion prices or combos that people can order :)

Penang foodhunt; Kedai Kopi & Makanan Taman Emas

Our second stop on our first day in Penang, Taman Emas kopitiam :)

The laksa stall here is very famous and is said to be good, so we had to try! :)

Besides assam laksa, they serve kuihs too... 

These are good to munch on while waiting for your order :)
Popiah (spring rolls)

Kuih talam

Chai koay

The aunty busy preparing our assam laksa :)

Doesn't that look soooo good? 


The assam laksa here is good! Definitely worth trying :)
Some of my friends preferred this, while others (like myself) prefer the air itam's assam laksa (will blog on that soon)
So, I would say it depends on your personal taste? 
But both are good nevertheless. 

Besides that, we also ordered the char kuey teow cos it looks sooo good!

 This was superb!
It was really special as they added chinese sausages (lap cheong), cockles (si ham) and some deep fried prawns. Definitely a change form the usual char kuey teow elsewhere.

Penang foodhunt; Seng Lee, Bangkok Lane Mee Goreng (曼谷巷印度炒面)

So Ipoh wasn't enough, we had to visit Penang for round 2 of foodhunt! :D

First stop, we went to Seng Lee Cafe for the famous mamak mee goreng!

The famous Bangkok Lane mee goreng :)

 This was SO SPICY and soooo good!
Some of my friends couldn't handle it cos it was way too spicy, but I personally love spicy food and I definitely enjoyed it! 
Worth the tryyyy!
It's quite different as it was really spicy and they even added squids and veggies to it, love the combination! :)

Look at the squiddddd, yums!

There was a stall selling rojak too, so we ordered a plate to try.
The guy was really friendly :)

I would say this is not bad. 
Tastes good, but I've had better :)

Even though two of the stalls were indian/mamak stalls, Seng Lee had this huge poster of it's hokkien mee too, so we gave it a try...

It was called the 'Hokkien Mee master'

Oh and bear in mind that hokkien mee in Penang is actually KL's har mee. 

Uncle(the master?) preparing our hokkien mee :)

This stalls seems to be quite famous.

 This was good, but we've been told that there's better ones.
