Come for a scrumptious seafood feast that's guaranteed to put a smile on everyone's face. The Crabs (from RM88 per kg) are a must-try, with the Kam Heong and Butter being the crowd-favourite styles. Don't forget an order of Fried Mantao (RM4) with this to mop up all the sauce! Other yummy plates to share are the Steamed Talapia (from RM40) and the Clams In Superior Soup (from RM20). Pro tip: Order some Satay (from RM1.50) from the stall at the entrance to snack on before the main event.

You may be familiar with this Punjabi restaurant's fiery fare in SS15, but you'll be glad to know they now also have a spot in TTDI! The menu ranges from fragrant briyani to made-to-order bread to pair with delicious curries. Signatures include the Palak Paneer (RM19.90), Mixed Veg (RM14.90), Mutton Curry (RM24.90) and Masala Chicken (RM20.90). Match those with the Veg Dum Briyani (RM13.90) or the fluffy Chapati (RM2).

Celebrate occasions with the folks over satisfying burgers and pizzas — both come with delicious vegetarian options too. On burgers, Burppler Farah Aziz highly recommends the Swiss Mushroom (RM28) featuring a beef patty topped with Swiss cheese, deep-fried pickled mushroom and garlic parsley aioli. You can also choose to have it with a chicken or falafel patty. Pizza-wise, Burppler Carmen Chan highlights the tomato-based Frutti De Mare (RM35) for seafood lovers and the white sauce-based Aloha (RM35) for the classic chicken and pineapple combo.

Swing by this family-run restaurant deep in Kota Damansara for a lovely Nyonya meal. Burppler Thokoh Makan sings high praises of the grub, especially the Ikan Gulai Tumis (from RM26) — fresh fish slices in a fragrant tamarind-based sauce. Also good to share are the Yum Yum Pandan Chicken (RM4.80 per piece), Yum Yum Brinjal (RM12) and the Yum Yum Egg (RM13). They also have two off-menu desserts, Cendol (from RM5) and Tau Foo Fa (from RM5) that are the perfect sweet endings to a flavourful meal.

Do weekend brunches right at this hot spot for coffee and breakfast plates. Consider sharing the Ra-Ft Breakfast (RM33), their take on a big breakfast featuring housemade bread, baked beans, bacon, sausages, eggs and more. They also roll our mean bagels — go for the Tuna Bagel (RM20) that is chock full of tuna, sweet corn, mayo and cucumber. Pair it with a cup of coffee brewed with in-house roasted beans, or the caffeine-free Golden Milk Latte (RM12), a sweet milk-based drink with turmeric and honey.

For decades, families have been frequenting this kopitiam in KL for Hainanese grub that grandma would approve of. There's almost always a queue, so come early to grab a seat. Put your orders in right away – Signature Hainanese Chicken Chop (RM10.50), Belacan Fried Rice (RM7.50), Hailam Mee (RM8) and Kaya Butter Toast and Half Boiled Egg (from RM3). Wash that down with a strong cup of Kopi (RM2). Ps. You can also take home a jar of Kaya (RM4.80) or a whole box of Kaya Swiss Rolls (RM12).

Tuck into homely traditional Hakka dishes at this popular spot. House specialities like the aromatic Yam Abacus (from RM14.90), yam balls stir-fried with tofu, onion and leeks, and the Hakka Stuffed Beancurd Ball (RM14.90) both warrant double orders. Lei Cha fans will be glad to know that Hakka Rang doles out a delicious version with a flavourful soup – the RM11.90 portion is sufficient for two! Pro tip: Reservations are highly recommended for dinner, or come slightly later for a fuss-free meal.

The food here is comfort food at its best – think American-style hearty eats like pork chops, meatloaf, burgers and more. Start your meal with the "Dog Food" (RM15.80), where crispy fries are drenched a savoury gravy and topped with melted cheese. Burppler Rachel Yong recommends the Pork Chop with Apples (RM33.50), while Burppler Avocado Queen praises the Cheeseburger (from RM30) for its juicy patty made with beef and pork. Finish off with the sweet Apple Crumble (RM11.50) with vanilla ice cream.

Treat your fam to a fantastic dinner at this hidden gem in Sri Hartamas. Look forward to fresh meats with just the right amount of fat – perfect for grilling! Order the Sirloin (RM32), Lamb Short Rib (RM32) and Salmon (RM28), or if you feel like splurging, go for the Kobe Beef (RM185) or the Alaska Crab (RM55). Be sure to ask for extra dipping sauce – the miso-special homemade paste is to die for. Pro tip: They are located right next to Burger King. Parking is difficult, so make full use of their valet service.
