Wang Chiew Seafood Restaurant @ SS2, PJ


Few months back, we stumble upon Wang Chiew Seafood Restaurant by chance and have never looked back since. Cheap, decent dai chow in a air-conditioned place is hard to come by nowadays. The Indonesian Seafood Curry Tofu (RM 8 ) came in a beautiful hue of yellow was laden with chunks of seafood and long bricks of tofu. The creamy curry sauce was definitely flavorful and gives the tofu a spicy … [Read more...]

Winter Solstice Family Dinner


Growing up in a traditional Chinese family, winter solstice is a rather big festival attached with great importance.

Busy Corner & Koon Kee Claypot Chicken Rice @ Damansara Jaya


In quest for the best claypot chicken rice… It brought us to Damansara Jaya (near KDU College).

The talk of town – Four Seasons Roasted Duck from Bayswater is here in Malaysia! I was more than happy to tag along when my colleague suggested lunch there. Despite running business in a rather obscure place, Capsquare, the place is packed to the brim on weekdays lunch hour. I reckon that the crowd will just die off in the evening or worst during the weekends, which is why they choose to be … [Read more...]
