Before Ah Weng Koh relocated to ICC Pudu, they were one of the hundreds of other food vendors in Imbi Market. Their Hainanese drinks are a bit unique, but there are plenty of coffee shops in town that make equally good Hainanese coffee and tea too.
The long awaited durian season is finally here. Unfortunately, due to the freakishly hot weather earlier this year, the harvest for this season will be a lot lower and prices will be higher too.
Besides Musang King and D24, a relatively new breed of durian called Black Thorn is making waves for its signature creamy and sweet flesh. It's widely planted in the northern region of Malaysia especially in Penang and Kedah.
Char Siew Yoong in Cheras is one of the most raved roast meat restaurant in town especially for their delectable char siew. When I arrived at the restaurant only then it hit me that we have tasted their famous char siew before.
Latest Recipe is probably the most popular international buffet restaurant in KL because they are quite aggressive in their marketing. Not only they are listed in the Entertainer, they also run Groupon deals quite often. So if you are paying full price to eat here, you're missing out on substantial savings. The normal price is RM138/pax but if you purchase a Groupon deal it's only RM88/pax.
B-Lab is one of the latest F&B merchants to be added into the Entertainer. If you're wondering what the Entertainer is, it's a mobile app that lets you enjoy buy 1 free 1 deals on main menu items. I have the app installed to look for great dining deals in town.
The main reason we came to Come Eat Lok Lok was because they were offering lok lok at RM1 per stick. At that time, it seemed like a deal too good to pass up. Although the food was not great, we had one of the oddest dining experience here so I guess it's worth it for the sake of memory.
