Frame Thai (formerly Lai Thai Market) Thai Food and Market at Happy Mansion, Seksyen 17 Petaling Jaya

Frame Thai or Lai Thai Market (former name) is a shop selling Thai food and other Thai groceries at Happy Mansion, Seksyen 17 Petaling Jaya. They serve very nice Thai dishes such as tom yam, pineapple fried rice, pork leg rice, Thai chicken leg salad and Thai mango salad. For the groceries, they sells Thai snacks, spices, sauces, instant noodles, fresh vegetables, fish balls and many more. Frame Thai has just been renovated lately with more tables and chairs for customers to sit down and enjoy their Thai food. Most of the groceries are moved to a small room for customers to choose their groceries and snacks without being disturbed by the smell of the nice Thai food.

Another photo of this hot and sour tom yam soup noodle.  Spiciness kick once you feed the noodle into your mouth.  Syiok if eat during a cold weather day and prepare to get sweaty if eat during a heaty day.  RM 5.00

Thai's fried rice.  You can order with pork, chicken or vegetarian with egg only as in this photo.  Not too dry and not too wet kind of fried rice and this dish is not spicy.  Dip some lime juice (provided for free) to enhance the taste.  RM 6.00

This pork leg rice is my favourite at Frame Thai (formerly Lai Thai Market).  The pork meat is very tender with just nice amount of fat.  The gravy goes very well with the brown rice.  As far as I see, Frame Thai only serves brown rice.  RM 10.00

The Thai mango salad.  Served with peanuts on top and some onions.  Sour, spicy and delicious.

Boxes of Thai mango sticky rice.  Tried this previously and missing it everyday.  The perfect combination of fragrant mango, sticky rice and coconut milk.

This is the four flavors enhancement of a Thai's shop.  The sugar, dried chili, peanut and fresh chili.  According to a conversation with a Thai's restaurant's boss, the food at Thailand are served at around 80% flavor and customers will add on sugar or chili up to their liking.  But I guess in Malaysia they cannot do that else customer won't come again because the food will be not nice.  The peanut pieces are to be mixed with the tom yam soup and tasted nicer than nicer.  I do see some customers mix the peanuts with their fried rice and pork leg rice as well.

The whole pork leg which they cut from to serve you pork leg rice.  At first don't want to post this picture as there are so much fat.  But it is too delicious to be ignored.

Hing Ket Grill House (庆吉烧烤海鲜屋) at Kampung Jawa, Klang

Hing Ket Grill House (庆吉烧烤海鲜屋) is a Klang Chinese restaurant converted from a house that specializes in grilled meat and seafood. Located in the Kampung Jawa, Klang, Hing Ket restaurant is just around 30 minutes drive from Petaling Jaya. Since today is a pubic holiday and we are looking for nice food, we decided to drive to Hing Ket Grill House to try their food.  Our aim is to try their fresh grilled crab.  According to the bloggers and reviews, the grill lamb here is a must try as well as other grilled seafood and meat such as crab, squids and prawns.

We are lucky as today's traffic is smooth and we reached before 6 pm.  There is already a family eating here.  It is going to be full house especially during holiday so better call to make reservation and also order your crabs or other food first to avoid disappointment.

You can easily spot the Hing Ket Grill House sign board on the roadside.  We used Waze to come here and the coordinate in Waze for this restaurant is quite accurate.  It took us around 30 minutes to reach this place from Petaling Jaya as there is no traffic jam.  If the food is nice, no matter how far also we will drive to eat.

Hing Ket Grill House at Kampung Jawa, Klang
Hing Ket restaurant seems like a conversion from a residential house with the front side extended to become a grilling place.  It looks new and clean, maybe just renovated not long time ago.  Hing Ket Grill House is actually a family business started in the 1980s by a Mr Foo family.

Very crunchy fresh yao mak vegetable at RM 10.  Remember to order some green vegetables to balance your meal.  We actually ordered fu yu yau mak but it comes without the fu yu.  But never mind as we are so hungry.

Hing Ket Grill House at Kampung Jawa, Klang
To replace rice, we ordered lala fried mee hoon.  Can you see the lala?  At first I thought they serve the wrong order but actually the lala shell is removed.  Very nice to complement our grilled food coming up next.  This lala mee hoon is only RM 8.

The generous amount of chili sauce and the mint sauce.  The chili sauce is perfect to go with the grilled stingray (pari) and lala fried mee hoon while the mint sauce is perfect for the grilled lamb, of course.

Even though our aim is to try the grilled crab, but I cannot refrain myself from ordering the grilled lamb after reading all the bloggers' review of the grilled lamb.  The grilled lamb served with cucumber and sweet pineapple is super delicious and the tender meat is thick and juicy.  Be warned, one bite and you might not be able to stop from eating the whole plate.  This is one person portion size as laupoh does not like lamb.  This grilled lamb of Hing Ket Grill House is RM 12 at RM 8.50 per 100 grams.

The grilled stingray fish (ikan pari), perfectly grilled and best to eat with the sour lime (limau) and the spicy chili sauce.  RM 20 for this two pieces of grilled stingray (ikan pari).

We ordered one large crab.  The spoon is provided to illustrate the size of the crab.  The crab is very fresh and the perfectly grilled with the juicy and thick crab meat. RM 58 for this crab at RM 78 per kg.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre

Bari-Uma Ramen is located inside the Jaya Shopping Centre which is a nostalgia place for many of the residents in Petaling Jaya. It has been rebuilt into a new shopping mall and launches lately with many attracting restaurants such as this ramen shop, Bari-Uma Ramen. Bari-Uma Ramen is well known in Japan and they start to expand to other countries including Malaysia. Their aim is to let customers enjoy their authentic taste of Tonkotsu Shoyu Ramen directly from Japan. As we are looking for nice food, we decided to give this ramen shop a try. According to the website, Bari-uma ramen is a super rich tonkatsu shoyu ramen using high quality soy sauce as the soup base with natural flavor of tonkatsu. The creamy soup of 
potherb, chicken foot, pork bone and other ingredients are boiled together for more than 10 hours.

The delicious homemade ramen noodles.

Inside the Bari-Uma Ramen shop.  We came here quite early around 6 pm so not many customers yet.  The staffs are ready to roll out the bowls of ramen.  There is this glass wall on both sides of the shop so that you can see people walking around while enjoying your bowl ramen.  Another side show the old buildings of Seksyen 14.

All Bari-Uma's ramen noodles are freshly made in-house.

Noticed the Touch n Go banner.  Yes, now you can pay the bill with Touch n Go card and get 15% off.  Too bad laupoh didn't bring her Touch n Go card that day.

The Bariuma Spirits!  Let's see if we experienced it with our visit.  Yes, our ramen is hot.  The staff greeted us with big and cheerful voice.  Their service is also wonderful and the table and utensils are clean and shiny.

The Food (Ramen and Gyoza)

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
My bowl of Ajitama-Uma ramen, described as pork flavored shoyu soup "Ajitama" with thick-cut flamed chashu.  Ajitama actually means the flavored egg and if you do not want the egg, you can order the Bari-Uma which looks the same to me but without the egg.  Another thing I love about Bari-Uma ramen is that you can order the small sized ramen and reduce the price by RM 3.  For me, those ramen shop's noodle portion are too big such as the one at Menya Musashi Ramen @ Isetan Eat Paradise, One Utama.  However, it might not worth the price for some as it is only reduced by RM 3.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
Look at the thick-cut flamed chashu in the creamy pork soup and the perfect Ajitama (flavored egg)!

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
Close up on this thick-cut flamed chashu.  It has full aroma of barbecue and meat is juicy and tender enough for wanting to bite the next piece.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The flavored egg (Ajitama) is also very delicious and it is worth the upgrade from Bari-Uma.  So nice that I regretted didn't enjoy it slowly but you know hard is it not to swallow the soft tasty egg when it is in your mouth.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
This is laupoh's spicy Kara-Uma ramen.  The ingredients are same, the thick-cut flamed chashu in pork flavored soup but spicy.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
We also ordered this gyoza but honestly it is a bit disappointing for me as it is not as crispy and juicy as I imagined.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The first page of Bari-Uma menu.  Click here for larger size.  You can order your favorrite ramen with extra toppings such as Ajitama (flavoured egg), spring onions, corn, dry seaweed and bamboo shoots.  You can also choose to have light soup if the original soup is too strong taste or too creamy for you.  For me the soup is just nice.  If you love chashu very much, you can also order Chashu-Uma with 4 pieces of thick-cut flamed chashu.

Bari-Uma Ramen Food Review at Jaya Shopping Centre
The second page of the menu for Bari-Uma Ramen.  Click here for full size.  There are a few types of gyoza such as pan-fried, boiled, teri-yaki and negi-mayo.  You can also order the flamed chashu if the one in your ramen is not enough, or you can order other food such as the flamed salmon and yakitori.  Since their flamed chashu is so nice I believe the yakitori should be nice too.  And you can also order matcha (green tea) ice cream or kurogoma (black sesame) ice cream to end your delicious bowl of ramen noodle.
