After watching a documentary about Ramen on Youtube, we had a sudden craving for a bowl as well. Then I recalled that a new Ramen restaurant just popped up at Bandar Menjalara which replaced Umami Ramen.
Cheesecake does not get any fresher at Uncle Tetsu. This rather new kiosk at 1 Utama‘s new wing has got people queuing up patiently for their freshly baked cheesecakes, which take approximately 45 minutes to bake from scratch.
I remember when I was still working in PJ, my colleagues and I would have banana leaf rice for lunch quite often. Not because we lacked choices, but because there were simply too many good banana leaf restaurants in town such as Raju’s, Kanna Curry House, Sri Paandi, Kashmir Cafe.. and the list goes on.
We’d regret having banana leaf for lunch as it never failed to make us sleepy at work afterwards. And yet we never learned the lesson and kept going back. Apparently, one of the better banana leaf that I missed out trying was Acha Curry House, an institution at Petaling Garden with a couple of surprises up their sleeves.
One of the most satisfying meals we had recently was at Hong Hong Chicken Rice restaurant. It is located in Desa Aman Puri, Kepong and Ipoh style bean sprout chicken rice and koay teow are their signature dishes.

Don’t you think it’s ironic that the Penang government is going to ban foreigners from cooking their world-famous street food, yet they are heavily employed here? I know it’s convenient to blame the foreign workers if the quality of the food is not up to par, but the management is the one who should be responsible.
Do you think there are too many cafes in town? Well the Korean owner of OW:L Espresso, Min certainly does not think so. Competition is good and as long as each cafe is committed and passionate about what they do, more means better choices for city dwellers like us to hang out. In Min’s case, he is out to bring authentic, premium Korean Bingsu and Marley Coffee to Malaysia at affordable prices.
