What have you got to lose ?! •

OR available every Friday only - chicken rice; either as an individual set or a whole chicken 🤤 can’t say no to its fragrant rice that goes well •

Not to mention another underrated dish here, fish ball noodle soup; handmade fish balls that are generously huge and fresh kinda bouncy 🙊 •

Watched it grow from a single store to 2 stores now, wonder if it’ll expand and take over Random Food Store’s space since it’s no longer operating #highlyRAEted •

Half Hainanese Chicken RM22.50 • Fish Ball Soup RM 7.90 • Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng RM10.40 •

Rainy days call for soup, and the house-favourite fish ball soup did not disappoint. A bit salty too, but the soup is super flavourful from the onions, garlic and spring onions. Quite generous with the fish balls and fish paste too.

Deep-fried kailan is served on top of more kailan – liked this a lot! Cooked in your usual anchovy and garlic sauce.

Tho a bit salty this chicken dish is call kinds of yummy. Sauce was thick, boasting sweet and spicy flavours – perfect for pouring all over your white rice. They also have this in medium and large options.

You'll find this neighbourhood restaurant buzzing with families tucking into Homst's delicious Chinese-Muslim fare for dinner. Crowd favourites include the Steamed Egg (from RM8), Wet Buttered Chicken (from RM18), Curry Fish Head (from RM20) and HOMST Taufu (from RM15). Alternatively, swing by for a dim sum breakfast to have classics like Homst Siew Mai (RM10.80) and Homst Steamed BBQ Chicken Bun (RM8).

I tried the banana leaf rice set with mutton this time. It also comes with a Teh Tarik Lawa (not my fav, wish I could have options to change) 😅 I’m so full eating this I promise! I almost couldn’t finish it all 😐 My favourite out of all is the fried snakegourd and papadom. In love with the fried snakegourd for sure 💖 kenyangg, dah la makan sorang

⭐️ 7.5/10
🍚 Banana Leaf Rice Set (RM23.40)
📍 Banana Bro Restaurant Berjaya Times Square Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur @bananabromy

When in Bangsar and looking for cheap and tasty eats, pop by this spot along Lorong Maarof and feast on Sri Lankan, Thai and even Tex-Mex grub. Have the Idyliappam (RM8.50), where putumayam is chopped up and stir-fried with anchovies, potatoes, beans and more. The HSBC Chicken Chimichanga (RM11.50) is also delicious — tandoori chicken wrapped in a tortilla, served with salsa and corn chips. For flavours closer to home, the Singapore Mee Hoon (RM8) is simply satisfying.

🍗 Boneless Chicken: For me, its quite oily if you want to compare it to Kfry and Kyochon but of course this is not korean fried chicken but american style so frying method might be different. But, there are many sauce you can choose from. What I tried: Louisiana rub, Oriental sweet soy, balinese spice and garlic parmesan. My favourite is the Balinese spice out of all 😋 ⭐️7/10
.
🍟 Voodoo Fries: Wanted to try because of the name. Its basically fries topped with nachos cheese and mayo. Quite yummy but will get muak after a few bites. One tip on doing fries with cheese is that long thin fries need to be used instead of thick one (too starchy + cheese=muak) Agree or nah?⭐️6/10

📍 Wing Stop @mywingstop (available in Nu sentral mall, Citta Mall, The Curve & My Town Shopping Centre)

For cheap and satisfying meals in Bangsar, this is the place to be. I’m a sucker to places like this that serves everything under the sun from Western stuff to Asian dishes. I couldn’t finish this mee hoon – super generous serving and just very simple and tasty. Had it with a side of fresh apple juice.

Malaysians love nasi lemak and it ranges from the basic snack version at RM1 to this at 10 times the price. Some folks consider this the best nasi lemak in the KL area. I found everything good, even the soft hard-boiled egg, with the chilli and the chicken's flavour exceptional. Although the meat was okay, it had such a medley of Malay herbs and spices, that you can enjoy in the form of the accompanying fried bits. It's fun because there are so many things on the plate to go with your already flavourful rice. Village Park might also be the most efficient money-making machine I've eaten at - seats are filled by assignment, everyone orders the same dish, and the payment queue is neverending.

Settle your nasi lemak cravings at this SS2 newbie set in a fully air-conditioned space. Order the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Serai (RM15.90) and look forward to juicy fried chicken covered in crispy spiced bits along with the usual fixings of fluffy coconut rice, sweet-spicy sambal, crunchy ikan bilis and peanuts. Also try the Nasi Lemak Daging (RM15.90) featuring tender beef that explode with flavour. More mouth-watering sides to share include the Cabbage in Tumeric Coconut Sauce (RM3.90) and the Sambal Sotong (RM7.90).

When the gigantic plate landed right in front of me, it reminded me of Village Park’s iconic plate for some reason (perhaps it’s the serai, or the golden fried chicken).
Nevertheless, I dug into the fluffy rice and tender chicken right away. I admit to underestimating Nasi Lemak Lah, so I was pleasantly surprised by how delicious everything was! My favourite being the crispy and juicy fried chicken, of course. The sambal was mildly spicy and on the sweeter side.
The space was slightly compact, but otherwise the service was great. Paired with undeniably good food, Nasi Lemak Lah is off to a good start!
