This place serves a handsome of Hakka Cuisine such as Hakka Yong Tau Foo, Steamed Yam With Pork and etc. But, the highlight here is their famous Paper Wrapped Chicken. Once the paper was torn apart, the fragrance and aroma starts rising up into your nostrils, teasing your senses. The meat is fork tender and very flavourful.


Restaurant Loong Kee located at Jalan Pahang just opposite General Hospital famous for their Hokkien Mee, Fried Intestines with dried shrimp, Clay Pot Loh Si Fun and Stew Fish head. Perfect for midnight supper as their operating hours are 7pm till 4am ample parking. Worth while eating at this place, they chef himself will recommend what's good.


Stopped by here to pack lunch for a long day, and seeing as they specialise in duck (or so it seems from the crown-wearing duck logo) I got the Roast Duck Noodles (RM8) - no extra charge to tapau. The noodles were a little bland, and of the stringy (not eggy) variety while flavours of the duck left a lot to be desired though the portion was reasonably meaty. On the flipside, one can order boiled soups, sour veggie and more with their roast meats when dining in! Probably get the rice.


If you're ever looking for a homey place to eat in Taipan USJ, head to Leong Ya Kitchen. Their one-of-a-kind version of fried rice is a simple but fulfilling Dai Cha Fan - clever, if you know Cantonese. The fried rice itself is nothing special but the addition of black sauce-streaked bites (long beans, anchovies, pork belly and Chinese sausages) helps it along for an overall delicious dish. When here, you also have to get the Paper Wrapped Chicken (RM4.50 per piece), fall-off-the-bone tender drumstick cooked in the most flavoursome gravy.


Of Jalan's Alor two Szechuanese restaurants, TKS is the favoured pick thanks to its specialty Braised Chili Fish (from RM42). The formidable dish sees a generous portion of fish fillets and beansprouts buried under gleaming red gravy overflowing with dried chili and Szechuan peppercorns. The tongue-numbing experience must be paired with a plate of steaming hot white rice. Alternatively, attempt another course of spellbinding spice with the Szechuan Dan Dan Noodles (RM10) — springy noodles topped with minced pork in a milder version of the former gravy.
Avg Price: RM25

Had a scare when this ginormous bowl of Braised Chili Fish (RM42) arrived with an army of dried chillies. Lots of fish fillets under there but for such robust looks, it actually tasted rather mild. Still a pretty good bite along with the beansprouts buried in the bowl. We also had the Dan Dan Noodles (RM10), surprisingly delicious with springy noodles and tongue-numbing Szechuan spice!


Friendship Cafe, 6, Jalan Jalil Perkasa 14, Pjs 1, 57000 Kuala Lumpur, Famous for the Steam Fish with ginger, bean paste and soy special soy sauce and the other dish you must order is the Steam Mince Pork
