Bandar Bukit Puchong used to be my home for almost two years. I rented a place in Nilam Puri Condominiums when I was working in Cyberjaya. The reason I picked this area is because of the convenience it offers.
Bandar Bukit Puchong has everything you need like supermarkets, sports complex, shops but what I really cared about is the food. Food is actually abundant in this ever-growing township and you will find a good mix of restaurants, cafes, coffee shops and hawker options.
My recent visit to the township was a nostalgic one and it certainly brought back a lot of fond memories. I was also surprised to see the rapid transformation the town has experienced in such short period of time.
There are plenty of new developments and the most eye-catching one has to be the Epic Residence project. If you bought a unit here food will never be a problem considering the vast amount of options nearby. Parking is aplenty in the surrounding area and that is definitely a plus point.
With so many choices to choose from, you need to get your priorities right. So make sure you try these 5 places first, they are worth dropping by even for non-residents. Better still, they are all located near each other which makes your food hunt easy.

1. Warung Cikgu – Nasi Mmanggey
No.1 on the list is my personal top favorite: Warung Cikgu‘s Nasi Mmanggey. It’s cheap (RM5/packet), filling and delicious. What more can you ask? This Kelantan delicacy is prepared using a traditional family recipe to ensure the taste authenticity.
Their juicy ‘ayam goreng cincang’ is marinated for a full day to allow the flavor of the spices to penetrate the meat thoroughly for that extra flavor. The steamed rice is delightfully fluffy and a bit of their homemade spicilious sambal adds a lot of life.
Come early especially the weekends and you will be able to savor their nasi lemak and gulai tongkol as well. Also, don’t leave without trying their creamy coconut shake and fresh coconut juice, also known as ‘air kelapa baldi’.
