Apparently Kampachi is having higher price compare to those Japanese shop however I believe it worth for something. Sukiyaki with the choices of Australian Beef (RM87) or Australian Wagyu (RM245), served with sliced beef and vegetables in sukiyaki sauces. I'm quite convinced with the price as the beef is fresh. You can tell when you start eating that. Can say everything is good, including service speed and attitude of service crew. Will be back again soon.

LanZhou is the capital city of Northwest China whereby it is full of large population of Muslims. Same with this, they are highlighting halal shaved noodles(刀削麵)and to be honest this is quite worth a try if you are around Ampang Park. It's nestled in Megan Avenue 1, which facing the main road and it is easily to be seen. Their fried shaved noodles (RM13) is surprisingly good. Was thought their noodles might be too thick but it's not. Well cooked beef and some green peppers had makes this dish perfectly serve. It's always full during office break within 12pm - 2pm on weekdays. Make sure you come earlier for more seats.

A Chinese restaurant that located at Gohtong Jaya, with a yellow colour of signboard with it. A fun fact at this place is, there are a lot of Chinese restaurant that serve with different types of food, steamboats, bak kut teh or steamed fish, but still every restaurant are full of people. Sin Kie is a family oriented restaurant that people will ordered steamed fish or chicken, but only some people knew that their signature is actually Cantonese Yuan Yang. The photo above is served for 3 pax, was purposely ordered this as appetizer before the feast begin. Usually people will noticed that the noodles might be overcooked and it taste burnt, or the sauce might not enough and eventually it dried up. But as you can see from the photo, large size, enough of sauces and well-cooked noodles, it comes with a conclusion, you'll finish everything on the plate !

The restaurant has been clarified as the cheapest Japanese food in Setapak with various of choices, which including dons, and also some Chinese cuisine like Marmite chicken rice (RM8.90), serve with a hot soup. Was not crowded during my visit even it is weekend. It's lying at the backstreet of PV128 Setapak, which is just behind of Six Inch. Somehow I found out it is too sweet to me but in terms of portion, surely it is very generous as it tends to attract more student around that area. Ocha (RM1) with free refill. They also doing promotion with Thursday night after 7pm, if you are dining with ladies there will be a free French fries for free.

Well-known as the best nasi Lemak around Ampang Park. As usual, the place is full of crowd during office break as they serve really good nasi lemak with quite of portion compare to the normal one. Nasi Lemak Ayam (RM11.50) served with chicken rendang, sambal, half of hard boiled egg, cucumber and some nuts and anchovies. To be, I think the best part of the whole dish would be the sambal with onions, sweet in flavour and level of spiciness is acceptable. The special of having lunch there is after you order at the counter, without any label or number of table you have to tell to the counter, the kitchen crew will automatically serve the food to you within 10 minute even though the shop is full of crowd. Their Kopi Peng (RM4) is quite good either. Make sure you order kopi peng gao for stronger flavour of traditional kopi. However, make sure you pay them a visit fast before the shopping mall demolish to make way for an MRT station soon.

It seems like to be a favourite breakfast or brunch spot for people. An old kopitiam but moved to new row, not too far from where it used to be. Old school interior design of kopitiam that surely make you nostalgic of those good old days when your parents brought you to kopitiam for breakfast. Can't denied that it always full house here during office break or lunch hour. The infamous hainanese chicken chop (RM12.50) that serve with two pieces of huge chicken chop, potatoes, orange and green peas with sauces. Guess it's one of the top seller here as you can see almost everyone is ordering this. Compare to other restaurant, their chicken chop is quite thick, high level of satisfaction on every bite, but since I'm not a fans of that sauce, I'm always order other kind of food there. If you wonder where to park your car, there is an open parking just behind the restaurant whereby you will pass by it if follow the main road. Or you can take monorail to Medan Tuanku station and have a 10-15 minute walk.

It's a food stall that located just next to HSBC bank, Jalan Ipoh. They serve various of tong shui at different days. At Monday and Wednesday, they are selling bubur gandum (麥粥), kacang hijiau (綠豆水), teh telur (雞蛋茶) and lin ci kang (六味). Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, they are selling kacang merah (紅豆水), teh telur (雞蛋茶), kacang tanah (花生糊) and lin ci kang (六味), while they are selling pulut hitam (黑糯米), teh telur (雞蛋茶), kacang hijiau (綠豆沙) and lin ci kang (六味) on Friday with RM3 per bowl. It's quite acceptable for me about the pricing as the owner is not stingy with the ingredient, dense in texture and tasty. It's something you can't find from the restaurant that serve tong shui out there. And you just have to top up RM1 for a big one. Moreover, they also selling some food like meehun and some light food such as curry puff and kaya puff, RM1.70 per pc. However, it is quite preferable to take and go as there only one table here. Currently open weekdays from early morning until 5pm, Saturday until 1pm, or even earlier, depends on the crowd.

The shop is actually located in front of the entrance of ICC Pudu. Was actually meant to go for Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea but unfortunately they didn't open so give it a try at Big Eye Hainan Tea that just next to Ah Weng Koh, which also having quite good of reputation. Hainan Tea (RM2.40) same price with Ah Weng Koh, guess because of the competition, they tend to set the same price. If really compare with each other, their Hainan Tea is not as strong flavour as Ah Weng Koh, but still they serve quite a decent of traditional Hainan Tea. Their Har Mee (RM7) is a little bit of expensive to me, but can't denied that they are using very fresh ingredients, especially their prawns, big and juicy. Soup is good.

Home Town Steamboat is one of the steamboat franchise that quite famous with their steamboat set as they design the menu for different numbers of people. Was ordered their Home Town Signature Pork Set Meal (RM54.90 for 2-3pax) that come with choices of soup. Their set come with dried tofu strips (腐竹), dumpling (水餃), abalone mushroom (鮑魚菇), crab stick (蟹柳), bean curd (白豆腐), vege balls (菜丸), fried vege balls (炸菜丸), pork balls (豬肉丸), sauce pork balls (醬爆豬肉丸), signature little piggy (招牌小碗豬), bean curd with pork meat (豬肉釀豆卜), thin pork slices (超薄豬肉片), handmade bacon (手工培根), cabbage (白菜), Yee mee (伊面), Bihun (米粉) and eggs (鸡蛋). Their signature little piggy (招牌小碗猪) actually is uncooked pork meat marinate with eggs and seasonings. Service is quite fast and good, but there have a lot of different steamboat restaurant around that area. Compare with others, they actually serving quite common of food. Nothing special.

It is one of the oldest restaurant that opened around Petaling Street. Since 1956 they started their business until today and renting to various of stalls so they can provide more choices to the customers. Their beef noodles (RM8) serve with beef tongue, liver, organ and brisket. Compare with other beef noodles, their soup is light and plain, not so strong in flavour. Their char kuew teow (RM7 for big size and additional RM1 for extra egg) is just located next to it. A bit pricey and the taste is normal to me. Their traditional kopi tarik (RM1.80 for hot and RM2.30 for cold) a bit plain to me. Would prefer stronger taste of traditional coffee.

It's actually a group of hawker stalls that located in front CIMB bank, same row with KFC Jalan Sultan, opposite to The Toast Co. The place is always full of crowd makes me want to try the place again since it used to serve very good wan tan mee here. However, the quality of food is drop, probably is because it is take over by foreigners. Wan Tan Mee (Large), Yee Mee Curry and three cups of herbal tea, charging us RM28, which I'm still can't figure out how did they charge. Serving speed is slow, probably is because of the crowd. Mostly are tourist that having their lunch here, probably just a quick grab after checking out from the hotel. Will not wasting any single pennies here anymore.

I don't know bout others but when I craving for dim sum at night, KTZ is quite a place for me to satisfy my tastebud. Shanghai Cheong Fun (上海腸粉) (RM4.05) is not that kind of traditional cheong fun, it serve with sweet sauce and sambal. Green Bean (綠豆沙) (RM3.60) is very strong in flavour and on point, but it might not available sometimes, depends on crowd. Loh Mai Kai (糯米雞) (RM4.80) is quite normal one for me. Tong Yuen (湯圓) (RM1.70 per pc) that filled with red bean, tasty one yet I prefer the ginger soup base can be cook longer so it can be spicier. Porridge (皮蛋瘦肉粥) (RM4.60) is cook with minced pork and preserved egg. It is very smooth in texture and delicious, seasoning just on point. Water chestnut (馬蹄粟米) (RM3.60) is one of my favourite here. It served with water chestnut and corn. Prefer to have it when it's still hot but they also serve in cold condition. Deep Fried Taufu (霸王炸豆腐) (RM6.40) crispy outside and soft inside. It taste better with chili sauce. Siew Mai (燒賣皇) (RM5.30) served with 3pcs per plate. It is quite hard to find siew mai that tight in texture but this one is really good, you can taste the flavour of prawn in every bite. Apparently all of their food is quite tasty. Although they expand their shop from stalls to shop but still it always full of crowd. Currently open daily from noon until 1am.
