Thai Street Food @ Go Thai, SS2


As a reasonably frequent traveller to Thailand over many years, I have high expectations for Thai street food. Unfortunately many of the Thai offerings in KL are heavily focused on traditional dishes such as green curries, tom yam and other seafood dishes. Hence, it is definitely music to my ears when I first heard about Go Thai SS2 and it's street food offerings from BoboStephanie. Together … [Read more...]

Dao Kia, The Soya Bean Specialist


Dao Kia is a soya bean specialist with presence in Plaza Low Yat, One Utama and Tropicana City Mall. I love their tagline of Happiness in a Bowl, as soya pudding is one of my favourite comfort food and it is indeed happiness in a bowl. We were at Tropicana City Mall and we have decided to rest our weary feet at Dao Kia’s small but compact store. The menu offers a wide variety of soy pudding … [Read more...]

Bangoya Japanese BBQ @ Jaya One, PJ


We have sushi joints and ramen houses everywhere in KL these days. So what’s next? Izakayas, of course. These casual Japanese restaurants have been mushrooming in the Klang Valley of late, and a few Japanese restaurants have also started adding an izakaya section to their menus. Bangoya in Jaya One is my favourite izakaya outlet so far. Located on Kissaten’s rooftop, Bangoya brings us a … [Read more...]

We got to know about Thai Camp from our good friend as her brother in law owns and runs this … [Read more...]

B & Best Seafood Noodles @ Kelana Jaya


B & Best seafood noodles has been on my “to-do” list for quite some time. I blame it on my foodie friends who constantly flood my social media newsfeed with images of B & Best’s scrumptious looking seafood noodles. I didn’t get around to it until recently, when we were around Kelana Jaya to run some errands. Do bear in mind that this is a “premium” seafood noodles place … [Read more...]

Grub of The Week#2 – Maybank Nasi Lemak @ Seapark


Just next to Maybank at Petaling Jaya’s Seapark (SS21) is where you'll find one of the best nasi lemaks in PJ. Some call this place "Maybank Nasi Lemak" because of it's close proximity to Maybank. The nasi lemak (RM 4.50) stall draws a big crowd every day of the week. Not only that everything on this plate worked together but individually it was all spot on! The sambal isn't too spicy and has … [Read more...]

Sushi Tei @ Tropicana City Mall


Sushi Tei is one of those Japanese restaurants that offers good quality Japanese food that is light on the wallet.

So we were absolutely delighted when Sushi Tei invited us … [Read more...]
