Chinoz on the Park at KLCC

We were late... walking in at 2.30pm, we were informed that Chinoz on the Park's special lunch was unavailable. Funny thing is that a friend was just in the area a while ago... they were informed that they were too early for the special. What luck:(

Oh well, Ala-carte will suffice, I suppose.

Incidentally, this is the sort of food that is perfectly energy packed for lunch(yet light and healthy), that you should have before a run in the evening... I find eating banana leaf way too heavy and though it is carbo laden, you end up feeling sluggish and performing at sub-optimal levels during the evening workout. Eating Chilies or Curries are a no-no as well because it could turn your stomach at the wrong time. Stick to Japanese and you won't go wrong! Oh, and since you are reading this, I am assuming you might be a food lover.. here are some ways to enjoy food yet stay a healthy person.

Here are 6 tips for running!
Tip #1: Eat a well-balanced diet.
Tip #2: Drink plenty of water. Drink frequently, even if you are not thirsty.
Tip #3 Eat more carbohydrates.
Tip #4 Aim to eat minimally processed or unprocessed foods.
Tip #5 Eat smaller meals throughout the day rather than 3 large meals.
Tip #6 Eat more. Cutting calories will leave you frustrated at being unable to complete your endurance routine.

Cod Fish RM58.00

What can I say.. the food here has improved. A lot. The Cod was delicious... cooked just short of well done, with a sweet thin layer of fat below a thoroughly crispy skin. We washed this down with the Eye-opener (Carrot, apple, orange) and the Morning Class(Celery, Apple, Lime) and called it an afternoon...

Bursting with energy and anti-oxidants, we were totally invigorated and re-energized!

coincidentally.. I was in KLCC on Sunday too.. lol!! Passed by Chinoz after shopping spree in Isetan and contemplating on whether to eat there or not...
I passed in the end... coz spent too much buying CNY stuff earlier. Went to Petaling Street for the hawker food instead.

yeah, what a coincidence we were in KLCC the same day. The lunch menu looked so good, too bad we couldn't give it a try. What you had instead looks very good too, esp that juicy cod.

J2Kfm said...

huge chunk of cod fish! succulent, and sweet eh?

eat MORE carbo? hmmm ... wonder what the Atkins' fans would say.

JENCOOKS said...

That Cod Fish looks nicer thatn the price cos I can cook you a few similar slices with this.

Yep noted u enjoy running too and thanks for the tips. I will be back to jogging by Feb and hope to follow a step or two.

CUMI & CIKI said...

I know what you mean.. where to spend.. shopping or food..? that's a hard one!

yea it was good. what did u have.. ?

yea, weird huh? carbo is a huge no-no for the celebs but I am sure they eat SOME before a run.. or else burn what? brain cells?! (oh.. ok.. now i see your point.. no wonder some are so DIM) hahahaa

is that an offer to COOK FOR ME?! lol
