Rolling rice is the best place to go for a quick no fuss value for money authentic korean meal .

But please make your orders fast at the counter because orders are taken swiftly 🤣by the Korean lady boss .

Thankfully - for this , I make my choice fast - my default choice is always Bibimbap since I pretty much dine alone most times and this order would be more manageable for single diners .

My eyes couldn’t stop wandering to other tables of grilled meats on hot sizzling plates 😂 and boy ! The portions are huge for those - can feed an army kind .

You get a side of seaweed soup and Kim Chi to complement your main course . Due to covid , these items are now not self - served but I actually found the quality of Kim Chi to have improved over the times when they were self served 😝.

And of course you must mix the Kim Chi all up in the bowl for that great symphony of taste and texture .

I like how these big bean sprouts are used instead of the skinny ones - you can actually tell who’s running the show behind since the non authentic shops typically use the skinny sprouts .

I was so used to being laughed at when asked what was my favourite cafe in KL. Madam Kwan was my perennial favourite and my Malaysian friends would say that’s for tourists like you .

But there’s something sincere about the food at madam Kwan ( they opened in Singapore but didn’t make it ) .

So Glad to find an excellent nasi lemak that hits all the notes like the one from madam Kwan . Fragrant and excellent rice , homemade sambal , tender and slightly spicy and tangy Mesah merak chicken thigh meat ( thankfully no frozen meat smell ), moist egg and fresh peanuts and anchovies .

Was a little disappointed when I first tried their kaya toast set (a little over priced at 5.80), but extremely happy at my new find today.

Skip the toast and cakes and go straight it for the kill !

Excellent excellent nasi lemak .


For those of you whom remember la Saigon at the plaza ( Beach Road )- they have found their new home at Alexandra mall 2 years back and we found them by chance.

I like how the cafe makes a lot of things with much emphasis on quality - ie homemade sourdough baguette and homemade soup stock with beef and chicken for their pho soup .

The salad was crisp and refreshing and the chicken tender and well marinated .

Flavours were beautiful but slightly expensive for the portions . Hope they would increase their portions :)

I was still hungry after finishing this 🥰


Well charred chicken , baked potato with sour cream and crispy onion rings.

Everything was on point .

Comfortable air conditioned roasted meats cafe at lavender mrt ( same building at Toast Box ) .

Almost feels like a fast food roasted meat concept .

Each set comes with a drink , rice or steamed buns and your choice of roasted meat .

I chose roasted duck plus 3 dollars of lean char siew .

The char siew was really really Outstanding - while the duck was average .

At 9.90 a set which can feed 2 - no complaints .

Worth a try :)

Perfect broth with lots of prawn and scallops flavour .

Crunchy noodles .

Good enough prawn wantons.

The homemade chilli elevated the dish to another level.

Tasted enough Hk ccf in Singapore to know an excellent one -

Probably the best tasting ones I have had .

QQ texture without being too thick , generous nicely glazed char siew bits and a delicious high grade soy sauce .

If this is not good enough , the price is also so good - you”ll come back for more .

Besides chicken rice , you get a choice to order noodles and boy ! This plate of noodles is so springy and tasty with a homemade sambal .

Totally satisfied my noodles cravings .

Extremely pleased 😁


This chicken was so well done - juicy breast meat - is that even possible ?

The homemade chicken rice chilli was also one of the best I ever had .

Run by a team of young people - pretty nice vibes in this very neat , comfortable and sparking clean cafe .

I feel like a child all over again when entering saizeriya because the menu seems to be designed around comfort food .

Pasta , pizza , cheese baked rice , cream sauce , bolognese - what could be better .

TOP it up with a free flow drinks bar - all you can drink Sodas.

I get so excited just by flipping through the l menu because everything looks so good 😊 .

Well cooked salmon - that’s still moist inside and crisp outside , accompanied with sweet butter corn and crispy wedges .

Served piping hot to you - the food here is always served fresh .

Absolutely pleasing smoked cheesy sausages.

Good smoked flavour , served piping hot on a hot plate with crispy wedges .

Much much better than the sausages served at coffee bean or IKEA .

Saizerya is really upping the definition of value for money food .

Best to pair with their hand stretched garlic focaccia bread or a plain aglio olio .

I dream of food .
