Keep this cosy cafe in mind for your next get-together with your gal pals. Expect a spread of familiar, delicious pastas like Creamy Tomato Linguine, Carbonara Linguine and Aglio Olio Spaghetti that go for a mere RM6.90. For something with more spunk, the Smoked Duck Aglio Olio (RM13.90) is a must-try, according to Burppler Jensen Kho. The community is also a big fan of the cakes like the Oreo Milli Crepe and Strawberry Shortcake, both from RM10.90 per slice. Wash that down with a fragrant Rose Latte (RM12).

Open from as early as 8am, this chicken rice shop sees students flock in for affordable, quality meals. Keep it simple with a plate of Roasted Chicken Rice (RM6). Each portion comes with a mountain of buttery yellow rice and tender roasted chicken that pairs excellently with the spicy chilli sauce. For more meat, go for the Chicken & R.Pork Rice (RM6.50) or Chicken & Char Siew Rice (RM6.50). What we love most about the chicken rice here is this tiny detail: the addition of crispy, fragrant fried garlic sprinkled atop the meats!

This world-famous hot pot brand is known for their excellent service (yes, get a manicure while you wait) and delicious food. Start with the soup – the Sichuan Spicy Hot Pot (from RM11) is a crowd-favourite. To fill the pot, order the Fish Ball With Fish Roe (RM15), Pork Belly (RM22) and Haidilao-flavoured Beef (RM32). On sides, Burppler Calie Tang recommends the juicy Pork and Chive Dumpling (RM6) and the Deep Fried Mini Buns (7), which she says tastes even better when dipped in condensed milk. Pro tip: We hear the wait is still long, so make a reservation at least a month in advance, OR come at odd hours – they’re open till 3am!

Discover bowls of heaven at this no-frills joint at Dataran Sunway. Folks come for the Pork Noodles (from RM8) – think flavourful pork broth with noodles of your choice, pork meat, lard and veggies. Alternatively, go big with the X Special (RM15) that comes with a runny egg and a bit more of everything including innards. There’s also a dry version that's just as satisfying — noodles coated in sweet soy and served with a bowl of pork soup. It gets especially crowded at lunch, so take Burppler Lydia Wong's advice and come for an earlier meal instead.

Pen this spot down for a rewarding meal after assignment submission! myBurgerLab grills up some of the best burgers in town, and despite the long queues, it’s worth the wait. Dive straight for the well-known A Beautiful Mess (RM21), cheddar beef patty crowned with three crunchy portobello mushrooms and a sunny side up. Otherwise, Captain Hook (RM22) which sees a crispy-on-the-outside and tender-on-the-inside fish patty dressed in spicy Kelantanese budu mayo is equally yum – best had with a side of Awesome Fries (fries seasoned with rosemary and thyme, RM5.50).

From crunchy corn tacos to beef burritos and cheesy quesadillas, this cool Mexican joint is a fun spot for casual dinners with friends. Burppler jionghui lim assures you’ll have a yummy experience when you order anything with lamb, a signature here. Have the meat in a crunchy corn Taco (RM7) dressed with shredded cheese, lettuce, salsa and spicy enchiladas sauce. Another standout is the Beef Burrito (RM14), wheat flour tortilla holds together delicious Mexican spiced rice, juicy beef, salsa and lettuce. To end the meal, the Churros (RM10) with Nutella dipping sauce will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Make this ramen shop your go-to for hearty bowls to keep you warm on rainy days. A crowd-pleaser is the signature Miyabi Shoyu Ramen (RM23.50) featuring a rich soy broth, bamboo shoots, two tender char siew slices and a handsome jammy egg. Another stellar option is the Yaki-Miso Ramen which Burpplers are fans of for its chewy noodles and flavourful soup. To share, get a plate of six soft-yet-crisp Gyoza (RM13). Pro tip: If you find the soup too salty, you can request for a milder flavoured broth.

Build-your-own healthy bowls are the speciality at this restaurant. All bowls (from RM15.90) are fully customisable with a wide range of ingredients for selection – we suggest trying the king oyster mushroom, Picco de Gallo and gado-gado. As for proteins, the sweet grilled molasses chicken breast or the herb-crusted fish which Burppler Joelle Chong declared to be "amazing" will fill you right up. Ps. Students, bring your ID along to receive a small discount!
