Prepare for an epic meal at this popular spot in Tropicana Avenue. Expect top-notch Australian-sourced proteins from brisket to lamb and more. If you're dining solo, opt for the Texas Star (RM26) that features 100g of tender beef brisket with sides like chunky mashed potatoes, coleslaw, pickles and a drink. Dunk your meat into housemade sauces like the Keramat Spicy BBQ Sauce. If you're coming in a big group, do like Burppler Jason Wong and go big with the mighty Behemoth 4.0 (from RM200), a platter filled with a variety of meats including 200g of brisket, lamb, burnt ends, chicken and more – he assures it's worth the meat sweats!

We've waxed lyrical about this pizza joint many times before – how many places build their own wood-fired oven AND make their own cheese? Worth the trek to Shah Alam is this humble pizzeria that serves up fresh pies! Bring the gang over to share the signature Margherita (RM26) featuring a chewy sourdough base topped with housemade mozzarella that's extremely creamy and bouncy. Meat-lovers, the salty Beef Pepperoni (RM26) comes highly recommended for a simple pie of cheese, tomato sauce and generous slices of pepperoni. Finish off with a sweet dessert pizza – the warm Nutella & Strawberry (RM22) is pure indulgence.

When the craving for fish and chips hits, pop by this cheerful restaurant painted in bright blue. The crowd comes for the Signature British Fish & Chips (from RM26.90) – expect crispy battered fish and salty, chunky chips. A meal comes with a fish of choice (haddock, halibut and butterfish), batter mix (plain, chilli lemon and chip shop curry) and a choice of side dish. Burppler R D gushes about the juicy butterfish in a zesty chilli lemon batter! For the complete British experience, try the minted mushy peas, a traditional accompaniment for the dish. Seafood aside, Cor Blimey offers other meaty British classics like Bangers and Mash (RM20.90).

Ramen enthusiasts, pen this spot down for ultra flavourful bowls of chicken ramen for rainy (or any) nights. From the signature toripaitan broth to the salty shio or light-yet-flavourful shoyu, each bowl features umami-packed broth that will leave you slurping every last drop. A must-try is the Toripaitan Egg Extreme (RM19.40) featuring tender chicken slices and a jammy egg garnished with fried onions. Burppler Hemlatha loves how well-balanced the broth is – not too salty nor thick. Pro tip: Burppler Kate Mun Yi says you can have this as a spicy option too! Also worth a try is the Toripaitan Shio Egg (RM15.40) for something less rich but equally flavourful.
