Much satisfying, delicious claypot chicken rice! As you can see from the picture, the serving is huge… Nothing fancy about the kopitiam itself, little did I know too they serve one of the good tasting claypot chicken rice in town.

The claypot chicken rice in here is packed with flavors and the rice is deliciously cooked together with its generous servings of sweet soy sauce, tender chicken chunks, Chinese sausage and chopped spring onion made my tummy feel happy and satisfied. Try to have this with chopped garlic and soy sauce for en extra kick. The people at this claypot chicken rice stall are actually Indonesian which are very well versed in Cantonese language! Try to order their fried chicken wings and soups too by the way, I heard that they serve good chicken wings too :)
If you are looking for claypot chicken rice, try to visit this place and you won’t be disappointed ;)

Everytime I crave for yong tau fu, I usually head to Batu 14 yong tau fu in Puchong. That day I decided to give Bandar Puteri yong tau fu a try. The shop is quite an attention catching with striking orange colour signboard. The restaurant interior looks much better than the Batu 14 one and the place is quite clean in general.

I head to pick my yong tau fu where they have plenty of varieties from brinjal to tau fu pok. I picked like 5 yong tau fu and wait for my order to be served. Turns out this shop has a gooood yong tau fu! It’s the kind of yong tau fu where you can taste the sweetness of the fish paste, minus the muddy taste. The soup itself was also sweet tasting due to the “sayur manis” added. I was full and content after finishing my meal.

Price wise was quite affordable. The sell each yong tau fu at RM1.2 per piece, which only cost me RM6 (excluding the rice) for a satisfying meal!

Overall, I might come back here instead next time if i crave for yong tau fu, saving me from having to travel deep inside Batu 14 XD

Bon Ga Korean Restaurant offers a decent range of Korean classics, ranging from BBQ, noodles, soups, and many more. I’ve been to many Korean BBQ restaurant before but I somehow think that Bon Ga is the only Korean restaurant that serves quite extensive, interesting ban chan (side dishes) such as the less seen burdock root in sweet sauce and my favourite Sangchu-geotjeori (Korean lettuce salad).

We ordered their seafood pancake (RM32) and Pork Belly BBQ (RM34). It turns out that the pork belly is kitchen cooked instead of grilled right infront of us, saving us from the hot griller and smoke-smelling hair afterward. It was served in sizzling hot plate together with garlic cloves and onions. The fresh pork belly has some beautiful golden grill marks, making it to taste slightly crusty and juicy in every bite. The seafood pancake was loaded with lots of spring onions and occasional squid and prawn chunks. The red sauce is addictive though.. It’s red as if it’s flaming hot, but actually it tastes rather sourish and savoury at the same time. We keep dunking our pancake into the sauce and we just have to call the waiter to add on more sauce for us.. XD

Although we only ordered this 2 simple dishes, we were overloaded and experiencing food coma after that (Korean food is always like that).. perhaps we ate too much of burdock root and the Sangchu-geotjeori! On the side note, they also selling Korean ice cream for RM8 each, flavours are ranging from watermelon soda to cookies and cream :)

This was my first time to Choy Hi Restaurant, which is located next to Chiang Rai Thai Food in Puchong. Choy Hi restaurant gives the impression of a simple Chinese restaurant that serves variety of local Chinese food from Bentong. You can find almost every kind of Chinese dishes in here from Kung Po Chicken to Kong Sai-style Stuffed Beancurd Pouch with Minced Meat & Fish Paste.

If you don’t feel like having heavy meal in here, fret not, they have single portion dish with rice. I chose to order Kung Po Chicken Rice (RM8.5) and House Special Noodle (RM8). The Kung Po Chicken Rice was good but nothing too special about it. I actually liked the House Special Noodle better! It’s basically fried yee mee noodle with lots of condiments such as Chinese sausages, button mushroom, garlic, carrot, etc, combined altogether make a fragrant, homemade tasting noodle like how i used to have at home :slightly_smiling_face: The portion is pretty big too! For RM8, you’ll get a huge bowl of noodle that you could possibly share with your friend.

Their specialities include steamed fish balls, kong sai style beancurd stuffed with minced meat & fish paste and stewed pork belly with yam. I will come back to try their specialities one day!

I think this is my first time tasting a really satisfying Arabian & Lebanese food in Malaysia. Located at the busy street of Sri Petaling, Al Diafah Restaurant looks fancy and classy from the outside, the restaurant is located at the 2nd floor where you can actually take a lift to go up there. Once you step in to their compound, you’ll feel as if you’re in some Middle Eastern country with all the glossy porcelains, thick curtains…

The restaurant was rather quite empty, so food in here come quite fast. While waiting for my Falafel Sandwich (RM12), they told me that they have free soup to grab. The soup was really good although I couldn’t really tell what soup is that. To me tasted like curry, soupy porridge which they provided wedges of lime to go with. I squeeze some lime to the soup and it gave out the zing that combined very well with the “curry” taste. To be honest, I wouldn’t mind eating that soup whenever I fall sick… hahaha

Back to the Falafel Sandwich, it’s a quite simple looking dish, nothing fancy about it but the taste is definitely amazing! The rolls are packed with deep fried chickpeas with finely chopped salad and tahina sauce, wrapped altogether in pita bread wrap. They serves it with more tahina sauce and fries. To me the rolls are good on its own, but a little kick of chili sauce might make it even better XD It was a satisfyingly filling dish in general :) Price wise it is actually very affordable for this kind of restaurant ambience and service 😁

For the drink, I chose to have Vanilla hot drink (RM10), it sounds fancy in the menu but actually nothing to shout about. It tasted rather like normal vanilla milk to me, except with the dash of cinnamon powder on top.

This chicken rice restaurant started off as a humble chicken rice and porridge stall in Old Klang Road, now Chee Meng Chicken Rice has multiple branches in Klang Valley. I came here for quick Saturday lunch before running some errands in the area. When chicken rice shops are typically visited by Chinese patrons, to my surprise this chicken rice restaurant is certified halal and I saw Chinese, Indian and Malay patrons gather in here to enjoy good chicken rice in one roof (1 Malaysia much! :D).

I ordered their steamed chicken rice (RM11) for the day. The steamed chicken has smooth texture and tasty inside out! Dip those chicken in their kick ass ginger dip and chili sauce. It was soo good I can tell you that! I always been eating chicken rice at Kar Heong SS14 and thought that it was the best chicken rice in Klang Valley, but after today’s visit to Chee Meng, it proves to me that I’m wrong…

They also serves other local delights such as sambal prawns, kangkung belacan, stir fried kailan with oyster sauce, etc to accompany your lip smacking plate of chicken rice :)

Will definitely come back (perhaps to the nearer branch) for their chicken rice!

We visited Kedai Kopi Tai Choong over the weekend and ordered the fish head noodle. Kedai Kopi Tai Choong is located at Old Klang Road, nothing fancy about the kopitiam itself but definitely the fish head noodle is worth the try (the fish head noodle is originated from Cheras btw)!

They serves generous portion of fish head noodle in here, we decided to order one bowl for sharing so we ordered the large bowl instead. The noodle is soft and slightly chewy (not like normal rice vermicelli noodle), the broth is super yumss! Milky and flavourful from the fish bones, how i wish they could give more soup for us! They gave us half a lime to squeeze into our noodle, just in case we prefer a little kick of zesty flavour in your noodle. But oh well, fish head noodle is always a hassle to eat because the fish has so many bones, i would prefer to get fish paste next time.

Their fish head noodle is good tbh, but due to the stuffy coffeeshop (it’s hot and stuffy in there, not the most comfortable dining experience you can get :/), I would still prefer to go back to Cheras Woo Pin next time… or XO Fish Head Noodle at Guan Wah (next to Atria mall) :3

Located hidden inside one of the alley in Old Klang Road (the road leading to SJK(C) Choong Wen and it’s just before the post office), Pu Yuan Restaurant is like a “speakeasy” version of traditional Hokkien restaurant spot. Finding this place is kinda tricky, because the place is quite secluded and the restaurant’s door is shut all the time, restaurant signboard is just merely a simple one too..

When we arrived at the doorstep, I was like ” This is a restaurant? For real??“. The crowd inside are regular Chinese people, it was not too crowded during our visit.

We ordered their famous Chao Shu Fen (of course) and Fried Tang Hoon. Their Chao Shu Fen looks almost similar to fried kuey tiao, it is fried with bean sprouts, cabbage, pork slices, and crispy lards. The taste is definitely not like fried kuey tiao taste, it was tender and chewy with the “burnt wok” taste =D
My favourite is still their Fried Tang Hoon, which is basically fried glass vermicelli noodles loaded with prawn, pork slices and chinese cabbage. The noodle is soft but quite chewy too compared to normal rice vermicelli, it was rich in flavour in overall.

Despite of their shabby looking restaurant, this place serves very delicious and definitely authentic Hokkien dish in town! Would definitely come back for their other interesting dishes like Oatmeal Popcorn Chicken and Honey Pork dish!

Good cafe to chill out in the midst of busy Puchong road. Located at the 2nd floor, this peaceful cafe often goes unnoticed. The cafe is rather quiet during dinner time, but the whole cafe is decorated cosy-ly, more of the homey feeling with all the sofas and free board and card games that you can play with your bunch of friends while waiting for the food.

I wasn’t too hungry and felt like having something light for the dinner. I ordered a plate of their “No Name Noodle” (RM 10). It is basically a huge serving of bamboo noodle (looks like meehoon, but it tastes like wanton mee noodle), with lots of Chinese sausage bits, fish roe, lightly drenched in special chef sauce and topped with crushed tofu skin. To me this is a very interesting dish, I’ve never tasted such dish before! I ended up finishing the whole plate of their huge bamboo noodle serving!

For the drink, I ordered their Peanut Butter Milkshake (RM13). It was really good too! If you visited Inside Scoop , this milkshake basically tastes very similar to Inside Scoop Peanut Butter ice cream, no kidding!!

Overall: Price is super decent for a cafe food, servings are quite huge too.. Worth to come back!

The dish that I would like to highlight here is the Gyu Tongue Negiyaki (RM28). It’s ox tongue (yes, you read it right) dish, served right from a hot plate. Ox tongue is one of my favourite meat tbh (because it’s boneless and tender haha), but I do aware that many can’t really accept the taste and smell of it. I would say give this ox tongue a try! It’s different and will make you have different perception towards ox tongue (especially if you never try it out before but feel ‘geli’ once you heard the name). It tasted just like a normal regular meat, lightly seasoned and much more tender than beef meat. Served straight in sizzling hot plate, 6 thin pieces per servings (I wish they could serve more….) accompanied with white radish and spring onion sprinkles. It’s really worth the try, trust me! You’ll never see ox tongue the same again hahha!

The Mini Bara Chirashi (RM18) is nothing to shout about, except the Japanese rice in here is a little bit more vinegarish than any other place. If you feels like having something warm, soupy and spicy, Gekikara Ramen (RM23) could be a choice. The soup is really fragrant but they give very little chicken chunks inside… The dish is quite spicy i would say, so you may want to ask the staff to tell the kitchen “less spicy” for this dish.

Overall: I would come back again for the ox tongue for sure! Because it’s very rare to find ox tongue dishes in Malaysia i don’t know why…

Check out this newly opened sushi burito place in town! They serves healthy and filling (but not too heavy) meals on the go!

Located at the APW Bangsar, this humble, minimalist place serves a really good sushi rolls with a twist! The founder named it Makirito because it is basically the combination between maki (sushi) + rito (burrito), that’s a clever one!

We ordered Signature Salmon (RM 16) and Spi-Seafood rolls (RM15). Both are reallyyy nice, feels healthy, however Spi-Seafood is still my favorite though XD Spi-Seafood roll is loaded with mixed seafood (salmon + jellyfish), pineapple, chili flakes, crab salad, masago (fish roe) and drizzled with generous amount of flaming mayo sauce. The combination is just nice and I would say this one is the bomb! A must try roll in here, yea! The Signature Salmon roll is stuffed with salmon chunks, masago, chuka wakame (seaweed) and shoyu mayo sauce. This one taste lighter than Spi-Salmon but I still prefer the one with a little kick of spiciness 😜 If you’re ordering Spi-Seafood, it can be a little messy towards the end, i’ve warned you (but it’s worth it)!

I think this is a perfect place if you feels like having a quick solo lunch or if you’re on the rush and need something to grab & go. Definitely will come back again for their Spi-Seafood! ❤️

P.S: Parking could be a little problematic here, just pray hard that you are lucky to get a decent parking…
