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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Fancy a dining place where you can enjoy an open environment with cool breeze and amazing view? Then Ampang Look Out Point is the place to be. Located on a hill top, it is no doubt one of the most unique and coolest place you can ever be in KL. It features a look out point tower for visitors to enjoy an breathtaking unobstructed view of Kuala Lumpur with a few restaurants great for gatherings and meals.
The best time to reach there would be sometime before the sun sets for safety (road leading to the place is winding and dark with no lights) and parking reasons. We spent 1.5 hours alone to reach Look Out Point from Kepong due to the horrible traffic jam at Jalan Ampang so it’s advisable to take other routes if possible like via MRR2. We reached around 7.15pm and this was the view as seen from the look out point tower. Too bad it was a little hazy that day.
This is the look out point tower as mentioned. Climb up for the best panoramic view of Kuala Lumpur.
Restaurants here like Haven and Gasoline serve mostly Western and local cuisine with the exception of Bread and Olive, which serves Mediterranean Fusion cuisine. Haven is the latest restaurant to open here. They took over the previous restaurant’s location, did some renovation and launched about nine months ago. Click here to continue reading >
