Chicken Up @ Holiday Villa, JB

Everyone is crazy for korean fried chicken in jB, Chicken Up is one of the hottest restaurant in JB for Korean fried chicken. You need to queue for quite a while especially during lunch and dinner time. (Im so hungry right now, damn)

Chicken up is attached to the building of Holiday Villa Hotel. It is at the first floor, ground floor is some indian restaurant. Where is Holiday Villa? It is jut behind KSL shopping mall, diagonal to Holiday Plaza.

Left: Crispy Up Mega Chic   (RM 26.90)      Right: Spicy Yangyum Mega Chic (RM 28.90)

Crispy Up Mega Chic is the original flavour, not much special. Spicy Yangyum is cooked with korean hot sauce, thumbs up! when having the first piece, it was not that spicy, you will know how spicy it is for the second one and onwards! There are altogether four flavours of the korean fried chicken, there are soy sauce flavour and one more is less spicy flavour. They also have menu for fried chicken wings only, rather than the half chicken. They do provide plastic gloves for customers who would like to use theirs hands to eat the fried chicken and they place a little dustbin for customers to throw the chicken bones, so the table wont be so messy.

Ugly Tang Stew (RM 38.00)

Ugly Tang Stew is wat we like to call 部队锅. It is made of kimchi soup, ham, smoked duck, sausages, mushrooms and noodles. Nice, really love the flavourful kimchi soup.

The small red “sauce” is not chili sauce! well, although they really look like chili sauce in the picture, they are not!

Watermelon Soju (RM 48.00)

Dang Dang! The must try in Chicken Up is the watermelon soju, fresh watermelon juice with soju served in an empty watermelon shell. Did not know that soju can match with watermelon so well, ice cold sweet watermelon juice with slightly bitter soju, refreshing! They also have peach soju, pear soju and pineapple soju.

I am gonna make this watermelon soju at home next time, hehe!

Topokki Cheese and Seafood (RM 28.90)

Super cheesy topokki! Normally the topokki (korean rice cake) we have in korean bbq restaurant is more to sweet and spicy. This cheesy, stringy topokki is more to spicy and salty, Inside there are squid, prawns, mussels, alot of vermicelli, topokki! Anyway, I still have preference on the traditional topokki served in the other korean bbq restaurants, because this dish is abit too salty for me due to the amount of cheese inside.

If you love very cheesy, stringy sauce, it will be a good choice.

Spice Grill @ Puteri Harbour

Puteri Harbour is one of the good place for an evening stroll where you can see the sea (more like a small lake) and yachts (actually it is more windy in the afternoon but the weather is just too hot!)

Spice Grill is located at the Little Red Cube at Puteri Harbour. It serves two types of menus, Indian and Western. It is more known of its Indian cuisine, however, some of the western dishes are considered above average as well.

Normally when we have Indian food anywhere, Indian restaurants will serve Papadam (a kind of cracker ) after placing your order and before your meal is served. Papadam can be a lil bit too salty, but I still love it as a snack before meal. So we only ordered two Indian dishes, Butter Chicken Masala and Lamb Masala (Lal Maas). Butter Chicken is my favourite Indian dish no matter which Indian restaurant I go, I will order this dish. Butter Chicken tastes sweet, mild spicy and with special aroma of butter, coconut milk and spices. The Lal Maas here is good too, shredded lamb with very yummy and slightly spicy masala. We have cheese naan (naan, oven-baked flatbread) and steam Basmathi rice to eat with the butter chicken and lamb masala. Heavenly delicious and very satisfying!

Garlic Cheese Prawns, this dish was recommended by the staff. the prawn is almost the size of my palm, the size makes you feel very satisfied with one bite of prawn which can stuff your mouth full. The sauce is just nice, not too cheesy. A good combination, love this too!

Seafood Aglio Olio is of average restaurant standard. Considered not bad.

I love their cod fish much! Succulent, juicy, nicely cooked with chef’s special sauce. The sauce tastes slightly sweet and spicy but not too strong that you can still taste the freshness of the cod fish. Thumbs up for the cod fish! Maybe for guys, the portion might be slightly small. For girls, the dish might be just enough and slightly filling.

This platter is called Thrill that allows you to try different meats in a plate. Sharing by two girls will be just nice.

  • Prawn cooked with herbs: Dun really like it, I will recommend garlic cheese prawn if you wanna eat the prawns here.
  • Lamb rib: Dun really like the sauce and I dunno how to describe the sauce
  • Chicken Corden Bleu: Average
  • Grilled Vege: Average
  • Cod Fish: Good
  • Mashed Potato: I am a potato lover, so as long as the mashed potato taste normal, I will still love it.

 

In the end, although not every dish suits my taste bud, there are still some good dishes worth trying! And maybe those doesnt suit my taste bud one, will suit yours.

Last but not least, maybe you would like to make a reservation before you go.

Address and phone is in the following receipt. Maybe you would like to know the price before you visit the restaurant, as Spice Grill is quite a premium restaurant. you can refer to the receipt to have an estimation.
