    1. hey, is anyone been to Taiping recently? There is one and also the only one HK style Dim Sum restaurant is opened, I think the name is call Zhong Wah Hin…. the dim sum is very nice, some dishes even better than KL restaurant but much cheaper.. Its a must visit place…

  1. Good recommendations with good photos taken there. Thanks for sharing this.

    I’ve realized that you’d never done any review of Johor Bahru’s food. I believe that you should have been to Johor Bahru as you’re currently working in Singapore.

    Correct me if i’m wrong. Cheers!

  2. hey guy, today i went to subang usj 16, there are a new open steam fish restaurant open. i went and try out. although is just a ikan tong sang but is really taste good. and the spicy & sour kai choy , ya the taufu as well. is a corner shope, there are a salon beside the restaurant. try out, name fatty tack rest

  3. What such a fantastic blog, well done! The food and the photography is very nice. Between i hope you can visit Sabah one day, as Sabah also have a lots of delicious food that you may discover….gambateh!

  4. Dear Vkeong

    i gone thru ur blog many and many times to review the food that you have aten, its very impressive that you can take so much picture to give us the experience. would you kindly find out the BEST “oh chein” (fried oyster) around KL . thanks



  5. Hi to all Curry Laksa fans, today morning i went to Brickfields (opposite Pejabat Pos), there are a delicious Curry Laksa stall. Look like Johor Laksa. Check it out, the stall stated in name “Money’s Corner Food Court”

  6. Recommand Kuching Kuching Cafe ~~Nice environment and Kuching kolomee & kuching laksa @ kuchai lama !! Kuchai maju 6 nearby K3K shop… ^^ Have a try ~

  7. Dear Guys

    I just tried out a Burger Joint Known as “Burger Royale” in Cova Square Kota Damansara PJ. I haven’t had burgers like those in my life. Its perfect and they really have good grilled Patties for burgers. I suggest to all


  8. Hi guys,

    U must try out K3K in kuchai lama. Try out Penghulu Fried Chicken there. The Char kuih and 2 in 1 bread is good too. Recommended by Chui Ling of One day Five Meals. Food selection is better than Old Town and Pappa Rich.

  9. Hi, i recently visited a place called GeorgeTown Heritage… near mount Kiara. The Asam laksa was fab !!!!!! and the char kueh teow fried with duck egg too!!

  10. Wow, I love alll the picture you have taken. There is still so many things I must try when I’m next in Malaysia and your blog will certainly help me out!

  11. Hi vkeong,
    great reviews & great effort on your part, enjoyed reading your comments!
    been away from Penang over 20 years, can’t wait to return for a visit, your blog helps identify and plan my food expedition LOL!
    keep up the good work.

  12. Prawn mee @ Sri Sentosa, Old Klang Road in KL is de best. Shop is at the back of a shop facing market. It’s very clean. Try the pumpkin tong sui only available on sat. Off day-wed.

    Nyonya food Tg Bunga @ SS2 PJ ,same row as coffeeshop formally known as Chow Yang is best and really, really cheap.

  13. Hi Vkeong, I’m also a BM kia like you who enjoys good food, it’s nice to see you publishing so many good food in BM. I have some recommendation for u (e.g: Nippy Noodle Wan Tan Mee @Kuchai Lama, Grilled Seafood @Food Republic, KL Pavilion & etc.) Too bad i’m not a food blogger, haha

  14. For Food Lovers going to Ipoh, I would recommend 2 best food that I find to be best of the best…

    1. Chee Cheong Fun at Pasir Pinji, Jalan 5, they open shop at 1pm but you must reach at 12pm to get a number first, the que is very long. Simple dried shrimp CCF with sweet & chili sause with soya sause and fried onion. GREAT!!!

    2. Sotong Kangkong Ipoh Style with peanut sauce – Medan Selera Ipoh Stadium LOW KWAN stall no.38. His recipe has been passed down from the grandfather who has been selling since the old Ipoh Hospital food stall. They also serve great cockles and rojak. BEST!!!

  15. try the cheese cake at a food freak,tis is the best cheese cake ive ever had.i tired mango cheese cake,its unique in its own way,the cips of mangoes is inside the cake and gives a different taste.
    ate their roasted chicken as well,very malaysian :)
    then i found out who the owner was.. malaysian no1 comedian MR harith the nescafe advert fella ..
    wonder y the restaurant is not here ..

  16. Hi Vkeong,

    the herbal chicken soup misua and red wine chicken misua located at some kopitiam in taman desa. the stall itself selling wan tan mee and a few other choices as well. the lan mee oso not too bad…but the herbal soup misua only available fr tues-fri and red wine chicken misua on thurs and fri…i think its located at Jalan bukit desa 5 in taman bukit desa, its a corner shop!

    u may have a try! =)

  17. hey vkeong,
    i found a nice pan mee place located at kepong desa aman puri area. if you’re free, you can go and try it.
    do you know jalan desa 2/2? right after you past a shell petrol station if you’re coming from LDP. This cafe is at the business district shop located at the right hand side of the road (opposite of the shell petrol station), 168 Cafe. There’s station 1, 99 speedmart, 7-11 nearby.
    The one i recommend is their dry pan mee. thumbs-up for a big dry pan mee for just 5 bucks! (price might be adjusted)

  18. Hi vkeong

    Just here to share with you.
    There is a Town called Sitiawan, about 2 and a half hour drive from KL or 3 hour drive from Penang. The small town is famous of “Hock Chew”(福州) cuisine.
    At the center of the town, there is a Restaurant called “Pek King(北京)” restaurant, probably you will find all the “Hock Chew” Food there. You will have to try the “O Chean”(same with Penang oyster fried) you will find penang oyster fried is pan frying, but there, you will find the oyster fried is deep frying(don’t forget to dip with the local Kg Koh Chilli Sauce). Beside, you will also have to try the fish bladder in hot and sour soup(鱼鳔酸), “lu mian(卤面 in hock chew)” hock chew style fry noodle, and also “ang jiu mi sua(红酒面线 a type of noodle serve with local red wine)
    Beside the food, you will find a small stall just few minutes driving from the restaurant selling the famous local biscuss called “guong biang”(光饼 in hock chew), the biscuss is made by floor and then place in a hot clay oven(same like how the Indian Roti Naan is made)there will be few type of stuffing, but the most delicious is onion with lard stuffing. The stall open 7day a week but sometimes will close on sundaprobably not able to purchase more than 20 pieces if you didn’t make a “booking” i use to purchase 50 ~ 70 pieces if i go there, a pieces cost around RM0.60 if not mistake. the biscuss can store in freezer and if you feel hungry, just take a pieces or two, deep in a bowl of water for few second and toast for 2~3 minutes.y, you

  19. Hi vkeong, u should try out this ipoh kopitiam that is located at Pj section 14/22 right angle… thier ipoh coffee ,teh tarik, cham n fried rice or char kt also not bad… :) tq

  20. Hey vkeong,
    i think this list you have is fantastic, i hope you dont mind but i feel i have to share this on my site too.. its just too good ti miss!

  21. Hi Mr Vi Keong, Thanks for your blog on food edition…i love this.. it is seems that you have been to Kota Kinabalu for many times…Keep it up….well done!

  22. Dear Vi Keong

    Guess you have been to many places to makan (eat) in Malaysia, was wondering if you have tried a small eatery located in Molek, Johor Bahru, Malaysia called Mama Nynoya Food.

    I been there many times and find the food rather good as compared to those in Malacca.

    Give a shot at this place if you happen to be there !!


  23. Dear Sir,

    My name is Kam Soon Cheng from Kuala Lumpur.

    I intend to build a ‘Cari Makan’ app for local people who is looking for Malaysia Food.
    Your current web portal might want to have those data to be accessible by your targeted mobile customer.

    The main features of the app:
    To track the geographical locations of the restaurant, where the user might wish to go for lunch.
    Provides name and address and type of restaurant.
    Display restaurant on a map.
    “Lunchtime alarm” – for busy people….
    User can re-sort the listing following their preference.
    Latest news from a restaurant’s RSS feed.
    User can re-sort the listing following their preference.
    Latest news from a restaurant’s RSS feed.

    ………………………..You can give your suggestion to enhance the app.

    By having the apps that promote your web portal data base, it will definite increase your business penetration.

    I intend to build the app base on Android platform, base on the reasons:
    1. The growing rate of Android devices is in accelerate fast:

    2. And there are wide range of different Android devices with different target price. Some entry model of Android smart phone pricing is consider affordable to those who cannot afford to purchase the expensive iPhone, especially for those migrating from Symbian platform. This will increase the Android user market share.

    3. It is still less numbers of apps in Android Market as compare to App Store, this will increase the app search visibility.

    4. I also done some search on Android market, there are not many similar app for Malaysia market, so it is great time to start now before others !!!

    Kindly let me know your though and we can discuss further on the possibility to team up for this project together.

    Thank you.
    Best regards.

  24. Have you tried That Little Gerai at AU5D Keramat. It serves fabulous ribs…it’s meaty, juicy and the sauce is so nice. Maybe you’ve tried a better one but to me that’s the best halal ribs I’ve ever tasted….the rest of the menu is not dissapointing..

    Give it a try ya…

    Btw…I love your blog..this is where I came to know about Hameed Mee Pata in Penang, Tq.

    do you know where I can find halal roast ducks…..

  25. Hi,

    I love your blog! Thanks for all the tasty info. However, I’m only going to be in KL for a couple of days so would you be able to recommend a few must try dishes and must try restaurants in which I can truly experience the taste of Malaysia??

    Thank you so much!

  26. Asam laksa and nasi lemak rendang ayam at Ocean Cafe in Jalan Tukang Emas/Besi (cannot remember which) is delicious also!!!

  27. I like your blog as I can search for good food in KL & PJ.

    I would appreciate if there is a category or notation for ‘HALAL’ and ‘NON-HALAL’. This is too avoid disappointment when an expected halal eatery turns out to be otherwise.

    Lets do it for the MALAYSIANS!!!

    1. Hi, for the later postings I do try to categorize the food as halal or non-halal as much as I could. But some places which do not have halal certification I just put them under pork free category

  28. Hey, thanks for the post- great pictures and very informative. I’ve tried many of the places you suggested- The Great City restaurant has become a particular favourite!

  29. Hi vkeong

    Im really interested with your blog and i would like to invite you to our events organize by BERNAMA.
    Can i get your email address or your contact number. If you are interested can you email to me or call me at this number: 013-3497309

  30. I really like your blog! just found it today while searching for Raju’s makan place in PJ. Good to know!

    Looking from your list of eatery places, there’s not so much of Halal food. Since you are very good at tasting good food, why not try Halal food and list it in? Really looking forward for it! And hopefully to try everything in your wonderful list.

    Thanks! :P

  31. We have brought some of the listed Penang good food to Selangor, simple concept by bring the famous good food to One location so everyone can conveniently enjoy. We now have outlets at Bandar Puteri Puchong and Kota Damansara. Come check us out, you will be happy to know how we have successfully work together with the famous hawker sifu to serve you their good food in One location.

      1. That’s where you are WRONG, I think you should revisit to understand how we have successfully serve more than 160K customer since we started in 2011. The food is cooked by the original sifu in Penang, we then truck them to Selangor (can you imagine the water used for the soup comes Penang?), you would not be able to get anymore authentic… conveniently in One location. We don’t by their recipes, we have done ready made in Penang by the orginal Sifu, the only few things we sauce locally are vegie, eggs and fruits, we are known for this as local market in Bandar Puteri recognised this effort and frequently dine with us. We can proof to you by the agreement we have with each of the hawkers, we are allowed to use their branding, photos and videos, we have their location and GPS on our menu, the idea is to promote each other at different location, you can even see Penang One branding on their stalls and establishment in Penang, we hope to create more awareness of such effort to bring ACTUAL, AUTHENTIC, ORIGINAL famous food from PENANG directly. The hawker sifu will visit our outlets from time to time for quality control. We are the only One in Malaysia that actually does it this way to ensure the famous authentic food from various parts of Penang can be serve in One location, even the yellow noodle, Koay Teow, Lifun and Chee Cheong Fun is supplied directly by each of the hawker. It is impossible to get the Sifu himself to be present at our outlets, it would be too costly to put the bowl of famous food on your table. We are passionate in this concept and trying our very best to serve famous GOOD FOOD without having to travel 400KM to get them. Apart from many many Penang Lang, our regular customers includes Dato Wong Chun Wai – Chief Editor of The Star, Dato Lee Chong Wei’s brother and family, Dato Jimmy Choo, Axian and many more. We have many great stories to share since we started this concept restaurant, ie. reuniting long lost family member from the unique restaurant setup. international chef appreciating, many Penang lang feeling happy and recalling fond memories from the various stalls that we have put together. Come try us out again, we are still growing the menu, we now have 11 famous stalls from Penang. PS. Even Axian can authenticate our food as he has done shows on the famous food.

        1. You can say what you want, invite all the celebrities you want, but the fact remains that it is the foreign workers who ultimately prepare the food. And that is the fact. Which hawker stall in Penang hires foreign workers to cook? You tell me. No need to get so upset lah, you already get all the endorsement you need, no need to bother about a blogger’s opinion lah. I already said the food taste not bad what, what else you want? Praise you till sky high?

          1. Only a true passionate Penangite will appreciate what has been mentioned, I wrote to you in respect of your blog and as fellow Penangites. FYI, We have wrote to CM Lim Guan Eng’s office for their support as revenue earn thru this concept is channel back to Penang, The food is not cook by foreign workers, the only thing we do is Char Koay Teow. I don’t need anything from you and won’t bother you again Bla-der and Kam Sia.

            1. Not cooked by foreign workers? So you mean the hawkers themselves go to your restaurant DAILY to cook it? Please don’t joke to me. The only way I could see things could happen is the Penang hawker themselves prepare the soup/whatever and you ferry it to your restaurants in KL. But the point remains, your food is still prepared by Bangladeshis. Are you saying as long as the basic ingredients are done by the original people the food will taste good? Then I challenge you to ask Bangladeshi to prepare sushi. Don’t bring the KL culture to Penang food, we are not blind.

              I would rather support a restaurant whose cook is a local and has enthusiasm in his work, eg The Wok Cafe and Gurney Delight Cafe, and not a businessman who aims to make money.

              Good luck with engaging other bloggers to promote your restaurant. I am sure there are plenty who are taste-blind out there.

              1. yes, that is what we did, the hawker themselves prepared the soups, dumplings, Chee Cheong Fun, Loh Bak, etc and we transport them to Selangor. I did not engage any food blogger neither do I have bangla workers, you are the first one I have written to inform so that people who loves Penang food will know about our endeavour. FYI, The Wok Café;s boss James and his father had dine at our Puchong outlet as his father is a frequent customer to Lum Lai Koay Teow Thng at Cecil Street, which where we get our Koay Teow Thng. Bro, just forget this, I’m sorry that I have bothered you, I made a mistake. I appreciate your time, Thanks. PS. The hawker masters and me work together on this project in hope that they no longer have to hawker by the road side or food court one day and have a better days ahead.
