Good Old Place Restaurant @ Bandar Menjalara, Kuala Lumpur

Sunday, November 30, 2008

Good Old Place Restaurant is a nice cozy place with lots of bricks deco surrounding the restaurant which gives patrons a westernize feel. This restaurant situated in Bandar Menjalara, Kepong. They serve steamboat buffet, western and local cuisine. They have 3 shops combined together. The first two shops serve steamboat, with unique deco from each others to suit different taste of people. Referring to their menu, very impressively, they provide a wide range of selections from 10 choices of style to cook your chicken to lamb and steaks…… choices such as Sizzling Chicken (So so only)…P1000679
Their specialty Good Old Place Chicken Chop top with oven-baked cheese (the taste is nice and unique, can tahan)….if you add another RM1, you get additional pineapple on top of your chicken chop cover with yummy baked cheese…
Bolognaise Macaroni is something you don’t find in a luxury western restaurant… very creative and the taste is not bad for the price you are paying…
The Black Pepper Lamb Chop is tender & juicy and the sauce just blended well….
It is a good place though for patrons looking for good food and nice environment with reasonable price.1

Little Penang Kafe @ The Curve, Petaling Jaya

Little Penang Kafe’s deco is simple, stick to the typical Penang Coffee Shop which features a retro theme, right down to the seating areas. It’s cozy and reminiscent of the late 70s time. You could see that this café is one of the busy restaurants in The Curve and most tables were occupied with patrons. Waiters are well trained and service is fast.

Their menu features a range of authentic Penang delicacies that include a number of Nyonya dishes. Lobak and Assam Laksa being the main attractions, the recommended dishes here include Penang Char Kuey Teow, Nasi Lemak and Home Style Lam Mee.

Basically, the Penang Char Kuew Teow fried with hot kuali with prawns, crab meat on top, cockles, egg and ‘tau geh’. Very good and not very oily.P1000668
Home Style Lam Mee, it is a dish for both young and old. It’s quite delicious, noodles in a flavorful chicken soup and garnished with chicken strips, prawns and egg.P1000666
Penang Curry Mee is a dish easily found in Penang. Mee with coconut based gravy combined with fragrant chili paste. (This dish is passable).P1000665
Overall, if you want to find a decent Penang food in shopping mall, then this place is ok for you to try.

Ka Fei Tiam @ Digital Mall, Seksyen 14, Petaling Jaya

Friday, November 28, 2008

This particular Ka Fei Tiam (kopitiam) located at the corner of Digital Mall. Having a clean and typical kopitiam deco, this place serves dishes that you can actually see in most kopitiams. The parallel about the foods served is like nasi lemak, toast bread, half boiled eggs, coffee, teh ice and etc. A little bit different from the others that Ka Fei Tiam offers additional choices of foods in mamak style such as mee goreng and etc. They also offered some western dishes like fish & chip, Cantonese fried noodle and etc. Their Nasi Lemak is ok and tasty with choices of chicken curry, chicken rendang and beef rendang (Taste is ok, but finds it average lar).P1000662

At Ka Fei Tiam, they will pass you a menu for you to see what they have to offer and you sit down and think of what you want to eat. You will then need to walk to the counter and order and pay before they actually serve you food. Basically is a self-service system, so don’t expect friendly waiters to accommodate your demands. Lastly, their price range compare with the other Kopitiams, they are quite costly.

Killiney Kopitiam @ Jaya One, Petaling Jaya

Thursday, November 27, 2008

Killiney Kopitiam is a Singaporean Kopitiam chain which was originally founded in 1919. The Killiney chain is one of Singapore's best-kept secrets and hugely popular there, originating from a single lowly coffee shop. Its famous bread toast and warm beverages was popular among many people. About 4-5 years ago, they started branching out in Malaysia, providing the best Killiney has to offer; their superb home-made kaya, smooth bread and French toast.
This particular branch in Jaya One provides good food and service (however, their waiters are not good in communicating in English, giving a bit difficult time to order food). The interior is quite normal, just like a very clean coffee-shop concept, complete with wood panels.

The other dishes like curry chicken rice, chicken chop rice or with chips (ok, pass), Fried Tong Hoon (Tasty!) and nasi lemak are also available, but judging from their menu, it's obvious the main focus is on the kopitiam breakfast fare.
Like wise, if you like to find a kopitiam with good coffee and bread toast, this place might be worth a try.

Key Hiong (Dim Sum) Restaurant @ Taman Megah, Petaling Jaya

Wednesday, November 26, 2008

Key Hiong has been around since late 1980s and quite popular around the PJ area. Every early morning, you can easily recognize it by the large crowd sitting outside the premise and people gathering outside waiting for their turn to have their morning ‘yam cha’. It doesn’t look impressive as it is just a normal looking coffee shop but many people come here for their dim sum each day. They don't serve the best dim sum around but their dim sum is above average. Every now and then, they add new creations to their dim sum, so you’ll never get bored of eating dim sum at their place. What makes them famous is their ‘Pau’ a.k.a bun, all their pau are 100% made fresh everyday. Their pau is really moist and soft and the inside is just nice. Most notable is the ‘Tai Pau’, it’s stuffed with a mixture of marinated lean pork, garlic, onions and half of a hard boiled egg tasted and sauce is real good. Compare to else where, it is toooo dry on the inside. P1000649
Pricy wise, it is very affordable.

Paddington House of Pancakes @ 1 Utama, Petaling Jaya

Tuesday, November 25, 2008

Pancakes are a type of flatbread prepared, from a sweet batter that is cooked on a hot frying pan. They exist in several variations in many different local cuisines. Most pancakes are quick bread, although some are also made using a yeast-raised or fermented batter. Pancakes can be eaten at different times of the day depending on local tradition.

If you are a fan of Pancakes, Paddington House of Pancakes (PHOP) might be the place for you. Located at 1 Utama, they serve over 100 types of pancakes, from savouries to sweet, snacks to party size, cold to hot, American to Dutch, pannekoeks, galettes, American stacks, poffertjes, blitzes, blinis…. etc and etc….whatever you can think of, they have it; even the ones that have never entered your thoughts….. So many types of Pancakes and most of them look so 'mouthwateringly' delicious. A very cozy place with some nice ambience and a nice view facing the 1U garden area. Their menu is so big, like the size of a wedding album. It’s so thick and over 100 items in the book and you can just keep on flipping for hours.

They have many specialties dishes, to name a few… there are pannekoek ('vienna' gourmet sausages, onions, fresh button mushroom & mozzarella), savoury american pancake stakes (double gourmet cheese sausages, beef salami, hash brown & grilled mozzarella, GOOD!), Mushroom Omelet, Pot of Gold (bite sized dollar pancakes with mini marshmallows, nuts, ice cream & choco sauce, A MUST TRY!).

Classic Buckleberry (Blueberry pancakes with scrambled eggs, mushroom, cream cheese & beef bacon, TASTE GREAT!) 34
Amsterdam (Beef salami, mozzarella, fresh button mushroom, tomatoes & fresh herbs, NOT BAD!)
Dessert – Apple Fritters, Strawberries, raisins, nuts, cinnamon, whipped cream & double ice cream….yum yum…. and many many more….
All these pancakes you can order, you can drizzle as much syrup as you wish over the dish and let the magic of this amazing creation satisfy your sweet tooth and hunger.

Joe’s Place Kopitiam @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas, Kuala Lumpur

Monday, November 24, 2008

A Kopitiam is a traditional breakfast and coffee shop found in Malaysia and Singapore. The word is a portmanteau of the Malay word for coffee and the Hokkien dialect word for shop (tiàm). Menus typically feature simple offerings: a variety of foods based on egg, toast and kaya & butter plus coffee, tea and Milo. This particular kopitiam in Sri Hartamas located at a corner shoplot. Mostly cater people who are working around the area and come here for their breakfast before punching in for work.

First glance at their menu, you’ll notice that they serve quite a variety of Otak-Otak dishes. They have Otak-Otak Nasi Lemak (Not bad, boleh tahan), Otak-Otak Bun, Otak-Otak Dumpling and Otak-Otak itself. However, their Egg Omelet Breakfast set is a total failure. Couple of toasts, a portion of Red Bean (Canned), slices of lettuce and Fried Beaten Egg (That’s all)……An omelet usually folded around a filling such as cheese, vegetable (tomato), meat (often ham), or some combination of the above. Their omelet so plain….worse than making in at home.

Damansara Palace Restaurant @ Jalan PJU 3, Petaling Jaya

Sunday, November 23, 2008

Damansara Palace located just about 5 minutes away from The Curve, is an ideal place for wedding dinner and birthday celebration. With no column constructed within the broad and luxury banquet hall, they are able to cater 100 tables and another wing which can hold another 18 tables to provide different customers’ requirement. It also has specially designed luxury VIP karaoke wings, in order to fulfill the needs of some patrons who want to possess their own privacy. Hence, the customers can fully enjoy singing and food with their friends and family at the same time.

The restaurant provides a cozy and tranquil dining environment. However, be warned that you'll have to walk up a flight of stairs to get to the restaurant which is located on the 1st floors. There is no lift to get up there, so it's not a favorable place to bring someone elderly/disability.

Food wise, their ‘Three Hot Combinations’ rather average with fried dumplings, baby octopus with jelly fish and stir-fried vegetable on a deep-fried yam bowl.
Next, ‘Chinese Herbs Fish Maw Soup’ is quite nice. Rather than eating the usual shark-fins soup, you can opt for Fish Maw.
Quick glimpse on the ‘Palace Roasted Chicken’, very aromatic and color wise, it is a beauty. Well roasted, every piece of meat is tender and crispy. Following is the ‘Steamed Patin Fish’, the chef used their own home make sauce and spices, enhancing the freshness of the fish. As for the Prawn, they deep fried with Salt & Pepper and used fresh prawns. So far, no complain for this dish. Fried Mixed Vegetable, nothing special and nothing to brag about it. Lastly, instead of using the typical Chinese noodle, their chef used Udon Noodle cover with Bean Sauce. Creativity wise is interesting; however, the taste is quite disappointed.
They also serve Dim Sum in the morning session, please click here for more information.

Tong Kee Egg Tart @ Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

Egg Tart, Custard Tart or Custard Egg Tart are a kind of pastry popular in many parts of the world but particularly in Chinese cuisine. The tart consists of an outer pastry crust, filled with egg custard and then baked. Custard tart was introduced in Hong Kong in the 1940s by ‘Char Chan Teng’ and bakeries to compete with dim sum restaurants particularly for ‘yum cha’ session. It later evolved to become egg tarts today.
There are many egg tart bakeries in Malaysia and one has started since 1970 which is Tong Kee Brothers Confectionary. They have a number of branches within Klang Valley and their HQ is in Pudu. Tong Kee's egg custard is always well prepared, soft and not too sweet, it is rich with butter and the crust just melts the moment you put it in your mouth.
If you like Egg Tart, Tong Kee is where you can find the best egg tart within Klang Valley.

Village Park Restaurant @ Damansara Utama (Uptown), PJ

Friday, November 21, 2008

Nasi Lemak is called the national dish of Malaysia. Nasi Lemak is widely eaten in Malaysia, even as a dish served in schools. It is a breakfast dish, sold early in the morning at roadside stalls in Malaysia, where it is often sold packed in newspaper, brown paper or banana leaf. However, there are restaurants which serve it on a plate as noon or evening meals, making it possible for the dish to be treated as a delicacy. So where can you find a decent good Nasi Lemak in town? Try Village Park, it is located in Damansara Utama. When you walked into the shop, you’ll see their banner proudly stated their Nasi Lemak is best in Uptown.

Village Park usually crowded for brunch/lunch. It is advisable that if you decided to pay a visit, go for an early lunch. Otherwise, it would have been impossible to get a seat, competing with the 12-2pm lunch time mob. Their Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng. It comes with the usual condiments like sambal, fried ikan bilis, chicken, cucumber slices and egg but it tastes unusually delicious. The rice is aggregated loosely together, instead of wet and clumpy. It also packed with heavy fragrance of the ginger with a little sweetness. Next, the Sambal is thick with onions, it numb your tongue and gullet on the way down, and finally settle into a nice warm burning sensation in the pit of your stomach. That’s a sure sign of good sambal. 43
The chicken is something not to be missed. It is well marinated in a secret mixture of spices and matches the crispy outside and tender inside perfectly. It has a smooth texture. Size does matter at Village Park, their provide huge chunk of chicken which is truly satisfying.

Need not to say more, GO TRY!
