It was rainy day and just drove back from Penang, then out of idea of where to eat not until Ken suggest to bring my bro,his gf and me eat one of the best KL chicken tandori & nan which located at opposite Ampang Point directly at the junction of the flyover heading towards Kuala Lumpur. Uncle Arumugam’s Tandoori & Naan stall is one of the stall to be.

tandori (1)

Cannot deny that, this is really one of the hidden gem around the area that have such a great stalls. Ken rated this place as one of his top tandori stalls in KL. If from the main road, they are hidden behind a bushes and will pass through a row of shop houses that is closed during night. I park at the road side and walk in.

tandori (2)

They are actually sharing an area with malay stalls next to it and their business is so good that one time they lbbq the tendori chicken is a few pieces at one go.

This guy is busy preparing all the nan.

Starting from tomorrow, muslims around the world will start fasting for one month and most of the restaurants are taking opportunity to offer best food at the right price. One of the place that we came across which is hidden at Ampang (seriously hidden) which is Intai-Intai Restaurant. Intai-Intai Restaurant Ramahdan Buka Puasa Buffet RM 48 nett. I was curious and ask the owner why this name was chosen, as he said, intai means peek therefore you need to take a peek to know where is the restaurant,the restaurant served Halal Thai food .. . .

Intai

Intai – intai offers customer to enjoy in their natural environment with sound of cricket, birds chirping yet a romantic ambiance during at night.

Let’s intai (peek) what does the restaurant have to offer and the nature of the area and a quick tour of the restaurant.

Intai (12)

Intai-Intai actually offer Thai food (that I thought is malay restaurant) which is manage by 2 friendly brothers that host us with the wonderfull evening.

I love travelling and one of the place I travel quite often few years back was Indonesia, then did stay there for about a month too till I ask my friends to bring me around the whole city and went for food hunting. Since then, its hard to find nice Indonesian food except Ayem Penyet which is one of my favorite that I find it similar to their local taste.  IR 1968 Indochine Restaurant and Bar.

IR

Not until last week, a dinner was organise here by Lisa and Henry at Terrance Hock Choon that a newly build up area that operate not that long located at Jalan Ampang, which is a conversion of an old building to a few combination of restaurant that serve fine dining with a classic old building that provide a perfect ambiance to host a romantic dinner, corporate function or even events.

A few restaurant is in this place and what I have been told by my friend that the Japanese Restaurant Fukuharu serve pretty unique menu for the night, as the menu is a board with a limited choices (served fresh ingredient for the day) with chef’s special.

IR (3)

IR stands for Indonesian Restaurant which I got to know that is one of a famous restaurant that visited by many celebrities in Hong Kong and recently had branches a new outlet in Kuala Lumpur.

Through its great history that the restaurant had been founded as early as 1968 by Hudson’s grandfather operating their first outlet in Hong Kong then operate by his dad and now himself, the cuisine is serve with a hint of Chinese mix Indonesian as they are originally from Indonesia and operate in Hong Kong that the taste changes to suit local taste bud.

Let’s head up to the restaurant for a peek before dining.  . . It was decorated with a very romantic feel at the ground floor with pale white near transparent curtain hanging around the stair ways and candle light lit all the way up to the restaurant.

I love how the restaurant is decorated by painting black on the walls and ceiling, modern Chinese lantern is place up, filled with ashes wooden chairs and tables.

IR (15)

You can be seated outside if you like and for smokers, its quite a comfortable area to go after~

Last week, Jonathan came back and tell us, that he went to a shop in Balakong that serve good steam fish and wanted to bring us there, so it was weekdays on lunch time, suddenly do not have the mood to eat on the canteen, all of us just agree to eat out. It was 15 minutes drive from Bukit Jalil to Batu 11, Cheras. Lan Jie Stim Fish When we reach there, it was hard to find parking space as it was lunch time and a mini shop lot area.

Picture on this post will be abit off as I forgot to bring my camera on that day and use Canon G7 to take on it.

Lan Jie

Lan Jie (2)

We were there early and still alot of tables to choose from.

Lan Jie (3)

This is my favorite vegetable, which is stir fried with fermented bean curd, is just nice. Not too salty yet it’s very aromatic with the flavor and goes along very well with rice, ended up ordering another plate.

Lan Jie (4)

‘Stir Fried Four Angle Beans with dry Shrimp’

Lan Jie (5)

‘Fried Wantan’ is very normal

Lan Jie (6)

As you see most of the table in the coffeeshop, each table will have the signature dish ‘Steam Tilapia Fish’ topple with shredded ginger, finely chop cili padi, dice garlic, soy sauce and chili bean paste. Perfectly steam and its very fresh, till eat along with ginger and dip in the soy sauce its very nice, those who prefer their fish to be spicy, can request it to be more spicy, as I love their version of more spicy compare to the normal one. The fish vary in sizes but is price from RM14-RM18.

Last round went for costume hunting for company dinner, and we were short of time due to traveling time then for the past round that we went there, we saw this shop that its kinda pack with people and might thought that, hrmm…would be a good place to have lunch since the price is quite cheap. Chong Ko Hakka Noodle

I am not a big fan of hakka food, but then still acceptable as did try a few disappointed restaurant and also good ones.

Chong Ko

Chong Ko (2)

Chong Ko (3)

‘Original Hakka Noodle’ is something plain that add in with some mince meat and small cubes of ‘chu yau’ which taste something simple and clear. RM 4.30

Chong Ko (4)

‘Curry Chicken Hakka Noodle’ Would be one of my favourite, not so thick curry soup base yet the santan is not so thick too, the flavor of the soup is just nice yet the chicken meat is soft. I just wish that my bowl is added on some pork balls. Yummm~ RM4.80

Chong Ko (5)

‘Pork Ball White Noodle’ with the look, I have underestimate the taste of it. Among all, this would taste the best with its thin noodle compare to the rest which is the thick one. Springy like wan tan mee noodle, with mild taste of the soup and I just love their pork ball, solid chewy type. RM 4.30

Chong Ko (6)

That is why we order another bowl of ‘Pork Ball’ RM 3.50

Chong Ko (7)

‘Dumpling’ is nothing to praise on. Just a normal one. RM 4

With the price and the food in this area, I would say its very reasonable and no complain.

Sawadee kap…. Sa Baai Dee Mai?Sa baai Dee Sui Mak Mak will introduce you some very nice Thai foooddd sir and madammmm… Ah Roy Thai Cuisine.

I have always miss the language of Thai with their greetings. Sounds so lovely. How nice if you can hear people speak Thai language in a restaurant but for us Thai food had always been one of our local favourites. Who can deny more than a very nice good thai food without travelling far? I would have to say that a double celebration that had made me expose to this great thai authentic restaurant around Leisure Mall area.

I might have pass around that area a couple of times, only this event make me realise on it as infront of the shop there is a a few malay stalls that overshadow the restaurant but it did not stop the locals going to this restaurant.

Ah Roy Thai

A warm and classic thai restaurant that with simple decoration of thai umbrellas and the origin chef with great experience that being the reason of the good food.

Ah Roy Thai (3) Ah Roy Thai (4)
A good thai food, a things that I would not miss is the ‘Young Coconut Drink’ and their ‘Kat Chai Sour Plum’ is damm good. I took 3 glasses.

Ah Roy Thai (5)

One of the very authentic food that could hardly find in other restaurant is this ‘Thai Tradisional Leaf Wrapped Savouries(Mieng Kam)???????’ RM12 that filled with very authentic flavour using a traditional leave to wrap all the ingredient on it and just eat.

The leave is freshly plug and carefully choose by the owner. That is the secret of this dish. Alot of people will be quite disappointed if they find this item sold out or do not have on that day.

Ah Roy Thai (6)

I forgot what is the name of this dish already but its like Durian. You either love it or hate it but as for me I find it not bad as the taste is quite spicy that can nearly chocked my throat yet the sourness is to the extend will mild out the spiciness.

Ah Roy Thai (19)

Pandan Chicken ?????’ is boneless and well marinated that was friend along with it. Soft and juicy chicken meat is something good to start off with. RM2.40/pcs

Ah Roy Thai (9)

Haiyoo, When dining in thai food, if you did not order ‘Tom Yam Seafood ????’ (S)RM18 (M)RM25 (B)RM35 is like ordering Char Koey Teow do not want Koey Teow. This pot of thing, its highly recommended to order it big. Sour and spicy that excites my my taste bud filled with some squid, prawns, crab and some other seafood pieces is just something I could not explain for more.

Ah Roy Thai (10)

If spiciness is something you cannot withstand then ‘Green Curry Chicken ????’ would be a good choice. Very mild in taste yet a bowl of rice is the best companion. (S)RM15 (B)RM25

Ah Roy Thai (14)

‘Steam Fish In Thai Style ????'(Seasonal Price)No fishy smell and soft fish meat show’s the sign of freshness level is there and the soup steam base of the fish is classic authentic thai taste, sour level is high and its just good.

Ah Roy Thai (13)

‘Stuffed Crab In The Shell ?????’ RM4-5/pcs with the base meat that been fried is flavour with solid crab taste and some chestnut.

Ah Roy Thai (12)

‘Lemon Grass Salad ????’ (S)RM15(B)25

Ah Roy Thai (15)

‘Steam Squid With Garlic & Lime ???????’ RM20 is another dish that you must not miss. Squid that been slice and like soak in long bath, that you should not underestimate. Springy squid meat scoop a spoonfull of the soup and eat it with rice, is something I enjoy alot.

Ah Roy Thai (16)

Since we have the wet version, and we decided to hit for the dry version ‘Siam Stuffed Squid ??????’ that grill well and stuff with home made ingrediant. RM20

Ah Roy Thai (17)

Eat a lot of fried stuff but never came accross my mid that this actually do exist ‘Deep Fried Crispy Kang Kong ??????’ Would be a very perfect companion for beers. RM8

Ah Roy Thai (20)

If you think you do want to go diet, then ‘Chicken Salad ????’ is something that you can consider as sweet, sour, bitter and a bit of sweet taste is there. RM10

Ah Roy Thai (21)

Brinjal Salad ???? RM 10′

Ah Roy Thai (22)

‘Tapioca With Coconut Milk ????’ RM6

Ah Roy Thai (23)
