Sarawak Kolok Mee & Laksa @ New 2020 Restaurant, Pandan Indah

Although rare, authentic Kolo Mee could still be found in KL if you know where to look for it. But just to be clear my definition of authentic is that the noodles should look and taste exactly like the ones I had in Kuching. I have had my fair share of ‘Sarawak Handmade Noodle’ at various food courts in KL and lets not kid ourselves, those are nowhere close to the real thing.

Sarawak-Kolo-Mee

New 2020 restaurant at Pandan Indah is one of the places where decent Kolo Mee could be found. A normal serving costs RM4.50 and the portion is satisfyingly filling.

Suzi’s Corner Steak Hut @ Off Jalan Ampang, KL

Suzi’s Corner is a hawker food court made up by several stalls under one roof. You can find satay, roti canai, otak-otak, BBQ chicken wings and even steaks here. The steak hut has to be the most popular one around and judging by the number of expats dining here, I would say they are the main target customer group. According to the many good reviews posted online, apparently this place is a gem where you would find the ‘cheapest and best steak’ in KL. Well, lets see about that shall we.

sizzling-tenderloin

For steaks, there are seven types to choose from with Sizzling Tenderloin Steak being the most expensive one @ RM32. If you look at the pricing, yes it is very cheap, so cheap that it is almost half the the price of a normal steakhouse. And the portion is not small either, comes with decent amount of fries and greens too.

Hong Park Sa Korean Restaurant @ Ampang (Ginseng Chicken Soup)

In the journey of discovering Korean cuisine I found myself at Hong Park Sa, a restaurant that specializes in Korean Ginseng Chicken Soup (Samgyetang) in Ampang. In Malaysia when one mentions about Korean food it is usually related to their barbecue, owing to the popularity of BBQ restaurants like Daorae. But you should know that having Korean barbecue is not an authentic experience of Korean cuisine, simply because it is not a Korean traditional food, just popular.

Samgyetang on the other hand, is a traditional dish that is usually consumed during summer to replenish the lost energy and nutrients through the hot weather. The recipe dictates that only young chicken is used because it contains more nutrients – just what the dish requires. And to mention the more delicate meat too. Although Hong Park Sa uses mostly local ingredients to prepare the soup, quality Ginseng is still sourced from Korea.

Haven Restaurant @ Ampang Look Out Point, Jalan Ampang – Hulu Langat

ATTENTION: Look Out Point has been closed to public by the Kajang Municipal Council. Read http://thestar.com.my/metro/story.asp?file=/2012/1/21/central/10303716&sec=central

Last year I wrote about Ampang Look-out Point and it became extremely popular, which to date has accumulated over 100,000 hits. There were rumors that the place has ceased operation hence the revisit to verify the claims myself.
I also believe there are still a number of people who do not know about this awesome place. So for those who are new to Look-out Point, it is actually a small hill at the edge of KL city dotted with various restaurants with panoramic view of KL city skyline as the backdrop.

This, is the reason why you should come to Ampang Look-out Point. Imagine this view right in front of you when you’re having your meal with your family and friends. I don’t really feel as excited anymore since this was my second time here, but the view is still quite awesome alright. If you have anyone you want to impress on a date, you know where to go now lol.

havens-gallery

Bread and Olive I went last year is no more, it has been replaced with Haven’s Gallery that features Arts, Design and Food under one roof. It is owned by the same boss of Haven Restaurant so combined, they are now the biggest restaurants at Look-out Point.
A new restaurant called Panorama Restaurant has opened at the look out point tower, which means you couldn’t climb up the tower anymore unless you’re a paying customer I guess.
