Event: Avenue K Food Adventure
Love eating? Ever heard of a food marathon? Well two weeks ago, Avenue K (AK), Kuala Lumpur newly open shopping mall, organised a Food Adventure for us bloggers. Besides being a shopping hub for many local and foreigners, it is also a mall full with amazing dining options with over 60 available eateries. We were lucky to experience dining 20 different mouth watering eateries in Avenue K. AK Food Adventure was a 12 hour eating marathon from 10 am - 10 pm, the task was to try a minimum of 10 eateries among the 20 selected eateries in Avenue K. Can you guess how many restaurants I manage to visit? 

The 20 restaurants that participated in this Food Adventure were Tokyo Pastry, Warisan Kafe, Samba, Noodle Shack, Simply d, WonderKafe & Bar, Wondermama X, Delifrance, Sushi Box, Ah Cheng Laksa, Upbeat, Krispy Kreme, Ayers Rock Butcher & Grill, Maison Dlights Chocolatier, Espressolab, Presto Bakery & Cafe, Marutama Ramen, Fat Boy’s Burger Bar, Tsukemen Izakaya & Johnny Rockets. Amazing list of restaurants right? In the end I could only visit 14 restaurants out of the 20 in 12 hours. It was truly an amazing experience and one I won't forget!

Curious to know which restaurant I went to?
Continue reading to find out! :)
*FYI I shall update the more detail links after my exam*

Being a kiasu girl, I actually planned out my eating journey before the event started by locating all of the restaurant location on a piece of paper. I was practically the "leader/guide" for my eating team. haha. The food adventure won't be a wonderful experience if it wasn't for Jane <3 I had some camera problems before the event started and Jane was an angel to share her camera with me. So we worked as a dual for this crazy food adventure <3 Do check out her amazing fashion travel blog, HERE.

Sit back and enjoy this summary of my AK FOOD ADVENTURE log. Do click on the links provide below for more details of the restaurant :)

10 AM - 11.30 AM
1. Wondermama X (Location: G-8C)

Since it was the first restaurant, I decided to choose the most expensive dish I see because I know I will never order it if I were on my own. It was none other than Nasi Lemak 2.0s (RM 23.90), there is soft shell crab with the nasi lemak!. I love how the restaurant brought a modern twist to our traditional local "Hawker" store we see in our hometown. The dish came out larger than I thought it would be. The portion was HUGE! So don't worry if you're thinking whether you would get your money's worth. Trust me, you would need the help of your friends or family to finish your dish. The place was also a homey environment, perfect for a family meal time. Do make sure that you also try their Three Layer Pandan drink (RM 8.50). It's three layer of happy sweetness to help give you a wake me up within one sip. Do make sure to try their desserts, they have an amazing variety of waffles, crepes and cakes for you to choose from :)

11.35 AM - 12.30 PM
2. Marutama Ramen (Location: UC-7) - Non Halal

I was practically bursting after the first restaurant. Guess it was a bad idea to start out with Nasi Lemak for the first stop. Marutama Ramen is a non halal Japanese Restaurant. So for all those who loves PORK. This place have an amazing Ajitsuke Tamago Ramen (RM 22.50). The ramen has a chicken based soup and is filled with a slice of roasted pork, seaweed, spring onion and "season egg". The boiled egg yolk was running, heaven to all who loves egg yolk. You can choose whether you would like your ramen spicy or non spicy. Overall, the ramen noodles was incredibly fresh but the soup was a little too salty for me. The other bloggers loved it tho. So if you love pork and super tasty ramen, then this is a ramen heaven for you.

12.45 PM - 1.50 PM
3. Espressolab (Location: C13) 

Can you believe that I never actually went to Espressolab before this food adventure? Espressolab has an impressive variety of cakes and drinks. I love the fact that there were so many power point and availability of fast free wifi :) Perfect spot to chill or to finish an assignment while in the mall. Besides that, their wall decorations are truly #OOTD background material. Love the classic monochrome wall that they have. You have to try their Tiramisu Cake (RM 14). At one look I thought it was carrot cake because the Tiramisu cake was covered in nuts and served with a side of berry sauce <3 Really, it ought to be the best Tiramisu cake I have ever had!

2 PM - 3.15 PM
4. Samba Brazillian Steakhouse (Location: L3-3) 

This place ought to be the most memorable restaurant for me. Samba Brazillian Steakhouse serves a meaty and seafood grilled Buffet. They have lamb, chicken, beef, fish, prawns, squid and many more. I love how the waiters would come to you with their meat pole and literally cut the meat from the pole to your plate. The waiters would come to your table in every 10 minutes. If you feel like you need a break from the meat services, then you can tell them to stop with your "chip". Every customer is given a chip that have two sides on it to display to the waiters if you would want more meat or not. It was a different experience. Besides that they have an amazing range of mocktails and cocktails. I got to try everyone of them from the menu. hehe. Make sure to order the Samba Fruit Mixx (RM 25), in the drink there is vodka, strawberry, pineapple, orange and condensed milk. It was heaven for me.

Taking a break from food, we got to enjoy the beautiful pink Christmas decorations in Avenue K. The mall was decorated with magical pink Christmas tree, a dashing cool Santa Claus with sunglasses on a Mini Cooper with huge presents surrounding it. Everyone wanted a picture because it was a twist of unique modern decoration with all things pink.

5. Wondermama Kafe & Bar (Location: G-8C)

Wondermama Kafe & Bar was themed with a modern Japanese setting. From the menu to the restauarant, it had a very japanese style to it. FYI, Wondermama Kafe & Bar is link together with Wondermama X. So you could ask for two menus while you are at either one of the restaurant. I love their Chu Hi with Yakult - Peach Flavour (RM 16), it's sort of like a cocktail with yakult. So if you can't take alcohol, don't take it. haha. Oh! Do try their Yaki Tori - Prawns with Garlic Sauce (RM 14), its prawns on a stick. Good snack combination for drinks with your friends.

Want to enjoy some sushi but don't have the time to eat at the restaurant? Sushi Box is a Japanese Take away sushi restaurant. They have a variety of sushi selection with affordable pricing. I took away one Premium Salmon Onigiri (RM 11.50). They also have a stamp card, so if you were to buy 9 boxes of sushi then you would get your 10th sushi box for FREE! YAY to free stuff :D

8. Simply 'D (Location: C-16A)

Simply 'D is the daughter restaurant of Delicious. They have an incredible range of sweet desserts and asian fusion dishes. I was so happy when I saw their Strawberry and Chocolate Pavlova (RM 9) and Phad Thai (RM 15). I know it was a weird combination but it was so delicious. I always thought that no one could beat my aunt's homemade Pavlova but Simply D' proved me wrong. Of all of the Pavlovas I ever tasted, theirs ought to be the best. The taste of the Pavlova was just right and I wanted more after I finish it. It wasn't so sweet, but just right. I love their vibrant colours and their array of lights, The place made me want to stay there forever.

This Japanese restaurant has a rather unique zen mystifying ambiance. Tsukemen & Izakaya Eiyasu Restaurant signature dish is Tsukemen Dipping Noodles with 5 assorted sauces (RM 23 - RM 25). The sauces are Japanese Curry, Miso, Sesame, Tomato and Soy. My favorite was the Sesame Sauce. So the sauces is actually the noodle's soup based. It was rather an interesting meal as I never had the opportunity to enjoy my noodles with a variety of 5 sauces. FYI their dipping noodles dish can be shared with 2 people.  It was a rather large portion. I will definitely return again with my friends for this amazing homemade dipping noodles dish.
