I was free today and apparently my friend Javier was in town from Perth and we decided to head down to Dallas Chicken for a buffet meal. We heard about Dallas Chicken from various blogs and thought it was a pretty good deal, considering that both of us are heavy eaters. Initially we ended up in Chinatown where the outlet was some 2 months ago. A quick on the net lead us to their new place at POMO (former Paradiz centre).
We ordered a total of 7 chicken pieces, 12 drumlets and 6 nuggets as variable buffet items (free-flow). A single buffet meal also consists of a burger (chicken/fish) and a drink (NOT free-flow). The chicken’s texture was very similar to KFC’s original chicken, although the taste was slightly different.
Overall, it’s worthwhile taking the buffet meal if youre really into chicken! The drumlets were exceptionally good, with more spice in them. The burger was similar to the ones you get at western food outlets at hawker centres that cost about ($2++) However, I can say that the fish fillet in the burger was bigger:
As you can see, this is the leftover! I had a short chat with the owner and it seems that they’re strict on food wastage. It’s stated that wastage is chargeable at $25/100 grams. Well, it’s a reasonable deal, and prevents people to order recklessly.
If youre really hungry but you cant afford other buffets like Sakura or Seoul Garden, this is your best bet! Buffet is available everyday from 3-6pm. They’re located at POMO (former Paradiz centre) at Selegie Road, 2nd floor. It’s owned by a Muslim British guy and the food is Halal. If youre not getting the buffet, you can consider other set meals with fries/onion rings.
We were so bloated after the meal.. that we almost needed wheelchairs.. LOL!

Once again, I decided to spend my good money in JB for obvious reasons. I was out for 13 hours and made my rounds in my favorite places like City Square and Tebrau City. When me and my wife headed for breakfast, it was sad to know that our regular prata joint is closed and the shop lot had a “for rent” sign on it. We had to find an alternative nearby to have 2 plain and 2 egg pratas with hot Milos.
While I was searching for games in City Square, I came accross pirated Blu-Ray discs. I was really surprised as those discs are very expensive to re-produce. There’s no way they can be pirated in this era. I was right.. they were only sourced from a BluRay and then printed onto DVDs. The cover designs were also of Blu-Rays. What a rip-off! For RM15, I didn’t try them out.
The new JB checkpoint was a mess like I mentioned in one of my previous posts, but I also said that it’s more worthwhile to drive instead. Thats what I did and it took me merely 25mins in the queue to the JB checkpoint. Not bad actually, and it ends nearer towards Giant hypermart and Tebrau City. Nice! In Tebrau City, we had Zinger Tower from KFC:
At first look, I was expecting double Zinger patty, but that was not the case. They had hashbrown instead. It was all good, but the yellow chilli lime sauce spoilt it. Cheese wedges that came with the meal made up for it.
After the meal, we watched Inkheart, starring Brendan Fraser. Having digested the food during the movie, we headed to Secret Recipe for some cakes.
We had Chocolate Indulgence and Mocha Walnut. Indulgence was totally awesome, and I would recommend everyone to go try it out. It’s worth every penny. The Mocha Walnut wasn’t as good as we’re not die-hard fans of coffee and it was abit more dry with less cream in it.
We headed back to the town area (where City Square is) for some good’ol Ramly burgers. I got 2 special burgers and 1 super mix. The super consists of 2 patties (I got 1 chicken, 1 beef) and all wrapped in egg. All ready to head back to Singapore. I was pleased to know that Malaysia oil prices are RM1.80 per litre now. The JB checkpoint was a breeze despite a longer alternative route to it, but the Singapore checkpoint was real slow.
SG customs and ICA should feel ashamed of themselves providing such poor service. The fact that Mat Selamat escaped -> everyone has to suffer in the additional security provided by full-time Civil Defence NSFs! That’s a total exploitation of NSFs methinks. At the end of the checkpoint, there was a red traffic signal causing the whole traffic to jam up till towards JB. I was no idea what happened, but I think speed should be an equal priority as security, which they seriously lack.

As far as I can remember, this is the first time McDonalds here came out with this huge mutha******. I decided to have this 4-patty burger for dinner today.
If ya think ya wanna have a new taste or something, go somewhere else. This is still the same big mac with more beef patties and a larger box. Quarter-pounder lovers will wanna go for this!
I had to open my jaw more than when eating a standard BK whopper. I could say it’s about the same height as the double whopper. Most of the time, the beef taste over-powered the rest of the burger. Meat lovers who wanna eat beef blindly, do go for this! Oh yea.. it did get messy

To celebrate my bday yesterday, me and my wife headed to JB (Johor Bahru) for a food fiesta and a movie. For obvious reasons I tend to help the Malaysian economy frequently by spending my good money there.
We were at City Square most of the time and had pizzas at Lavazza together with fish & chips (not pictured here). After which we ended up catching Madagascar2, which was pleasantly good. More on that in another post.
Next - Ramlee burgers. We had to get those for dinner at home. I got a total of 3 burgers, 2 chicken and 1 beef special. For RM2.50, it’s certainly worthwhile, compared to the ripped-off prices in SG that costs almost 2.3 times more. There’s a lane behind City Square which will be filled with food carts.
It opens at 4pm, and we were the first customers for the burger cart. Hats off to the dude selling them, as the price remained the same after all these years:
Check out the following pics. Totally mouth watering!
I got lucky. I managed to bring in the burgers into SG without any problems. So much for JB. After coming back home, we went to our nearest Swensens restaurant for ice-cream. We had a bday firehouse (compliments from Swensens ) , banana split and fries. Yellowish pics due to restaurant lighting:
Once we were done, we ended up getting 2 ice-cream cones on our way out! The classic vanilla had a little weird taste (too vanilla with semi-bitter pistachios), but the choco pops was all good.
Overall it was an excellent food fiesta and today is digestion day for me
