If you are ever in Ampang are don't ever forget to pay Cozy House a visit before you go back to where ever you belong to. This restaurant is the best for local delight! When you visit Cozy House you need to try their Chicken Curry Noodle, the portion is huge (RM 12.50) and you need to get there early so you'll be able to get a bowl because it is always sold out by 2pm! The broth is so flavourful and there size of the chicken is enough for you to get a food coma after that big meal. Another dish you'll need to order is their Chicken Chop, done hainanese style, with breaded fried chicken with a side of fries.

If you are in a mood for spicy food, don't miss out Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus when you are in Ampang. This Indonesian dish is so popular because of the spiciness of the sambal. We dare you to go above the "biasa" level of Spice. Because even at the lowest level of spiciness, you will still need to drink a lot of water to wash down all the heat! The dish consist of marinated fried chicken (RM11) with a side of cabbage, fried tofu, Tempeh and dark soy sauce for you to pour on the rice if you can't handle the 🔥.

Located on level 2 of Ampang Point shopping centre, this outlet serves mainly beef dishes with rice or noodles at mostly priced at RM 13.50, with limited beverages menu. No set menu available. Guests are mainly of a mix of all walks of life. Plenty seating available as it is a medium size outlet. The serving of beef meat is quite big for beef noodle soup which is great.

Looking for halal Yong Tau Foo? Check out Hometown Yong Tau Foo. Home Town Yong Tow Foo is the first Chinese Halal restaurant in Malaysia to introduce our Muslim friends the delicious Ampang Hakka Yong Tow Foo. If you want to go for the recommended dish, try their signature You Tiao or Char Kway Stuffed Yong Tau Foo that will cost you around RM1 each. What makes it special is that the char kway is pan-fried twice. First on its own and the second time with the fish paste which will give you a very nice crunchy texture. However, Home Town Yong Tow Foo does not provide that doughy breaded taste to its dishes. The char kway only serves as a crusty wrapper for the meat inside, but it is still considered as a must-try for its rare fusion of yong tau foo.

Looking for Authentic Korean food? head on over to Hanwoori in Korean town in Ampang Utama. order the seafood stew and immerse yourselves in a spicy but yet sweet, soup-based dish packed with abundant seafood, including blue crabs, octopus, prawn, squids, and clams, all seasoned with gochujang, red pepper paste.

This is truly one of the most hidden gem in Ampang. Best Coconut Shake truly lives up to their name! Located at Taman Dato' Ahmad Razali. This Coconut Shake is the best to enjoy during a hot day! Order the Coconut Shake Biasa (RM4) and you'll be surprise on how balance the taste of coconut and the sweetness of it!

If you're not sure where to start, consider the capellini, which is rounded off with a powerful seafood sauce, enriched further with brown butter, and completed with a firm, fleshy lobster roulade (RM45). Don't forget about Brix's roast chicken, which is flavoured with honey and vanilla and served with chicken jus, potato puree, and truffle cream (RM40).

For you are looking for authentic Sarawakian food without travelling all the way to Sarawak, head on over to Dayang Sarawak for some delicious bowl of laksa sarawak of Mee Kolok. The Laksa is serves in big portion, was tasty and delicious. Ask for more condiments and sambal. Mee kolok goreng was superb.

La Risata has held their fort in Ampang for over two decades, and the quality of this Italian restaurant has never failed us. The space is cosy, sporting exposed brick walls and warm lighting suited for an intimate dinner with a few friends. Skip the process of sifting through their very varied menu and go for these top dishes that our Burpple community loves. Though simple in presentation, the Ravioli Di Pesce (salmon ravioli, RM28) wins us over everytime. Each pasta pocket boasts a slippery, al-dente texture and smothered in a tasty creamy sauce. For those who prefer rice, there is the Risotto Nero Con Calamari Ripeni (squid ink risotto, RM37) that comes with braised stuffed calamari. The rice is cooked to perfect plumpness, and every black grain bursts with the piquant flavours of squid ink. Before leaving, order the Cannoli (RM16) to share. Sweet ricotta cream encased in a crispy fried pastry shell, this hot-and-cold dessert is a decadent way to end the meal.

The MCO gave birth to the Butter Pantry in Ampang. Emmy and Evelyn, the sister pair behind it, previously ran an online bakery called The Last Bite, which open its doors at the end of February 2021. They teamed with Min (who owns the restaurant downstairs from the site) to construct a storefront operation, choosing to embrace chances rather than fret about challenges. The Butter Pantry not only serves as a retail establishment for Evelyn's delectable baked products, but it also serves as a gathering spot.

OM Burger has been in business for over 20 years and has become a local institution. You may compare the burger to a typical Sloppy Joe. Enjoy what they have to offer with localised and halal chicken, beef, and lamb patties on a large menu at an affordable price. If you are a first timer start with Double Burger Ayam Kahwin (RM6.50)
