Wong-Poh-Seafood-Crab-PJ

Restoran Wong Poh has been around long enough to have established a reputation for their seafood dishes, especially their Claypot Butter Crabs. If you were to make a comparison of the best crab restaurants in PJ, Wong Poh has got to be on your list. Being a seafood lover I had been here a couple of times but there was only once when I managed to snap some photos.

Naughty-Nuri's-Sri-Hartamas

You know what really bothers me? When a foreign restaurant comes to Malaysia, we have to fork out more for downsized portions and the food often does not taste as authentic. And yet we as the consumers are not expected to complain or make comparisons (to the original) but should feel grateful instead – simply because we are ‘blessed’ with a new restaurant in town.
Recently, I noticed that there are some food bloggers with a sizeable following who always write good things while ignoring the other equally important factor: value for money. Maybe because they never had to pay (or could claim it back later) for the tab. How do I know, you ask? Well, I have been blogging long enough to know how the system works.

I thought Robert is supposed to be a guy? How come a lady was frying my Char Koay Teow at his Damansara Kim stall? I had been to both of his ‘branches’ (another at Section 17, run by his nephew) but never seen him in person. Hence, this taste taste might not be accurate considering it was not being prepared by the original proprietor.

Are you willing to brave the traffic, get in line and hold your hunger for an hour for a Ramly burger? That’s a question you need to ask yourself before going to Brother John‘s burger stall because that’s the exact situation I went through.
Even though I had been to Damansara Uptown quite a few times myself, it was only until two weeks ago I spotted this burger stall with so many customers surrounding it. Then I thought to myself I have to give it a try no matter what just to find out what’s all the fuss about.

Lau-Heong-Seafood-Sentul

With a bit of exploring you will find that Sentul actually has a lot of good places to eat. Some are still relatively unknown and I hope to get those covered in future. But let’s start with one of the more popular ones around – Lau Heong seafood restaurant. Don’t get me wrong though I am not recommending this place just because it’s famous, their food is actually good and they also have a handful of signature dishes worth trying.
The first time I was here it was about 5 years ago when I was still a newbie in KL’s food scene. But I do remember that the meal was a good one and most of the dishes I had was memorable. So after 5 years, have things changed (did I change also?) and will I still find it as good as I thought it was?
