This is just the spot you're looking for if a feast is what you're after. If you're a small eater, skip starters and jump straight into their Nasi Campur (RM37) featuring dishes like Balinese Grilled Lemongrass Prawns, Squid Fish, a choice of Beef or Chicken Rendang, and Sate Lilit. If you're not, please begin with the Sop Buntut (oxtail soup, RM17). If you’re coming by with your family or friends, share the hearty Bali Trio (RM49) to enjoy BBQ Wings, Sate Lilit, and Cumi-Cumi Goreng (fried squid)! The feast isn't over till you've order a Lemongrass Mojito (RM13) mocktail for a tasty, refreshing Balinese finish!

Ploy (Publika branch only) is perfect for big groups who would like to try a wide variety of food, or if the group simply can't decide where to eat. Take a whack at their Torched Sunrise Tuna (RM38.50) as a shared starter — lovely seared tuna served with sushi rice. For mains, don’t skip out on their Linguini Mentaiko (RM24.50) for a Japanese twist, or Ploy’s Black Fried Rice (RM30.50) complete with squid ink and a fancy raw egg yolk for you to stir in. Hopefully your friends are durian lovers because their Durian Panna Cotta (RM12.50) is not a dessert to miss out on! Alternatively, you can go for the Cracked Coconut (RM21) for a visually appealing, refreshing dessert. Complete your meal with an order of yee sang (RM118 or RM168) for a Ploy-sperous New Year!

This is the season for coming together to eat and catch up, and what better way to have a good time than to cook together on a BBQ grill with free flow items! For just RM49.90++ per person at dinner (or RM39.90++ for lunch), you won't have to feel shy ordering plate after plate of pork belly and beef ribeye to grill to perfection.

Analog Cafe is nestled in SS17 Subang Jaya, just off the Persiaran Tujuan before entering the USJ area. This is a lovely spot to get your caffeine fix at tea time, be it a regular cup of espresso-based coffee, or a filtered coffee (RM15) recommended by the baristas. Hungry? Grab their Cheese Toastie (RM10), basically an awesome grilled cheese sandwich, for a light, satisfying bite.

If you’re missing that hot, comforting bowl of pho, or snacking on a light banh mi in Vietnam, relive those precious memory at Pho Vietz.
