People who loves to eat is always the best people, hahaha. I like foodie as I found this little hidden-gem shop located in SS2. I discover a Japanese-styled Chinese cuisine - SoloMen Cafe was developed with the influence of Chinese living in Japan. With the hard work and creativity of both Japanese and Chinese chefs, plenty of unique and outstanding delicacies were developed. 
To all Malaysian who loves eating Japanese foods, SoloMen Cafe is your best choice in this friendly neighbourhood. SoloMen Cafe's motto is to provide a comfortable place to chill and eat as SoloMen are the combination of word ‘SOLO’ & ‘MEN’ which means freelancers and customers who are ramen lovers. *I knew you are 😉*
A pleasant opportunity to try this amazing dishes that I tempted - RAMEN, the fine and subtle Japanese noodle, is one of them and has become the traditional icon dish for Japanese ever since. Other unique delicacies such as Gyoza, Tori Karaage, Katsudon, Gyudon and etc are also well known worldwide. Served impressively on table and the foods are smell AWESOMEEEE!!! *jaws drop*
Today, at SOLOMEN CAFÉ I would like to introduce their best Japanese-styled Chinese cuisine made from the finest 20 years old secret recipe. Quality and freshness are the motto.
The ramen, sauces, broth, fillings and gyoza skin are fully handmade from fresh ingredients. SOLOMEN CAFÉ serves freshly handmade ramen that comes in varieties of soup base which flavoured with vegetables and pork bones cooked at light simmer over long period of time. SOLOMEN CAFÉ also serves top quality of coffee and varieties of beverages.

GYOZA - RM 11.90

Hey, head over here to read my new review about natural ingredients body care product. 
Had you all heard 'Bare 4 Bare' this brand?
Bare for Bare was founded in Singapore by a team of enthusiastic experienced R&D and marketing team on the idea of providing a personalized, luxurious home spa body and hair care experience for all, not just women but also men. 
Bare for Bare body care and hair care range is made from carefully selected natural botanical essential oil gathered from the best sources throughout the world and its paraben free! Thank you Bare for Bare, your product making my skin feel refreshing, smooth and healthy. The scent of smell is incredible as I'd set it as my first priority for my body care products usage at home.
Bare for Bare Sea Salt - Removes Dead Skin Cells Body Scrub
The natural constituent of essential oils and Sea Salts combined, makes Bare for Bare Sea Salt Body Scrub suitable for all skin types. Detoxifying effects of the salts exfoliate the stubborn layers of dead skin, while moisturising properties of the aromatic essential oils gently hydrate skin and leave it delicately scented.
1. Spread a thin layer of Bare for Bare Sea Salt Body Scrub over damp/dry cleansed skin, particularly on the roughest areas (elbow, feet, knees). 
2. Massage gently in circular motion. Rinse off under warm shower or immerse in bath water. 
3. Towel dry. 

It is recommended to use two times or more a week.
For best result, apply generous amount of body lotion on your skin after exfoliation
Bare for Bare Rosemary Body Lotion & Body Wash
My Experience with Bare for Bare of the Sea Salt Body Scrub
The scrub comes in a huge tub (350g) and the packaging is not make of glass, it is well pack in a plastic tub and also can be recycle use to. I really do not mind the tub packaging as I am not travelling with such a big tub. LOL!
The texture of the scrub is like having raw salt granules infused with essential oil scent. I cannot get away with this amazing scent that relax my tension. *Breathe* Ahhhh...
It is very difficult to spread a lot of the product especially on dry skin. On wet skin the scrub spreads smoothly. It has these uneven granules which effectively scrubs the skin and slowly melts after massaging for a while.
After washing off, the scrub help to removes my dead skin cells and leaves my skin ultra smooth and supple. For normal body-skin type, I really love how it hydrates the skin. The best part is the fragrance which is so spa-like that you really feel relaxed and rejuvenated. I was pleasantly surprised that the fragrance stays on for more than 10 hours at a stretch which is unimaginably wonderful. If you like to pamper yourself and enjoy body scrubs, this is something you should not miss!
