Pictured above is a Kapitan chicken set (RM13.90), all set meals come with freshly steamed and fragrant basmati rice, a free drink and an array of side dishes that you can also add-on upon ordering. Choose your preferred egg-style or even your choice from four different sambals, ranging on levels of spiciness (rm1 per extra serving each). Fret not as the friendly staffs will be more than willing to help you out in this self-service restaurant!

Think Nasi kukus in the setting of a small cafe-styled food stall in TTDI, it surely does have a playful touch to it! Parking shouldn't be a problem as there are guarded parking lots right in front.


Kuey chap; a teochew dish of flat rice sheets swimming inside a bowl of tasty herbal broth which consists of salted vegetables, beancurd, pork intestines/stomach.

Having it being my first time trying this dish, I was a little disappointed as I had rather high expectations from the constant raves of my peers from all over the country. Generally, the kuey chap (RM8.80) at Auntie Sim's restaurant tasted satisfactory to me, the innards were handled and cooked properly but there was a slight taste to the kuey that I did not really enjoy as it left a bland taste in my mouth.

Hopefully, I'll be able to discover a place nearby that will allow me to have a better kuey chap experience next time!


If you're a Malaysian situated in Damansara, chances are that you've heard about Village Park Nasi Lemak before as it has became one of the most popular nasi lemak stores in the city. Despite being local, it was my first time trying it as parking in the area has always been a big problem, but no regrets for me because it surely did lived up to its hype!

Nasi Lemak with Ayam Goreng, picture above (RM9), the Chicken was fried to golden brown, crispy on the outside whilst being smooth and juicy on the inside. On the other hand, the sambal wasn't too spicy either which made it very complimentary to the texture of coconut rice – an excellent and satisfying meal indeed.

There's also a choice to order Nasi Lemak with a wide choice of different side orders from the food counter inside.

Some people eat to live, whereas I live to eat 🙌🏻✨
