Browsing

Sometimes, we are not to sure where to eat and I often go to the few places and friends often ask me, where to eat in Kepong. My only few answer is the usual. Tang Jia Roast is one of my favourite Wan Tan Mee place in Kepong. They used to be at just around the corner before MRT begins construction and they have move to a proper shop since 3 years ago.

where to eat in kepongThis is one of my regular spot on weekend as I often come here for their Char Siew Wan Tan Mee as I find that their portion is quite generous compare to many other places with its price tag. The place is also comfortable as they have its own mini air condition

This is my usual set as Wan Tan Mee dry comes in springy, top with some pork lard and the sides you can pick what you like. Wan Tan/ Char Siew/ Siew Yuk/ Chicken or all mix also can.

Spring Golden famous for both their Chicken Rice in Shah Alam and also of course their Char Siew.  Chicken is not too bad and I must say this is the better chicken rice I have eaten so far (note that I rarely eat Chicken rice)

Just loooooook at that. Caramelize 360 turn over inside out and the fats I got was even but just melt in my mouth. I wanted to order another portion but no more as the customer behind me got the last bits of it. Love the burnt edges too as it just stick right in your teeth.

[repost from year 2011] – updated pictures with all broken links.

In this neighborhood, I always thought that the area only I know is on the Food Foundry area that side which only filled with food to hunt. . never did I know that actually there is another small kopitiam area located on another side of it which is quite famous for its lunch crowd among all my colleague and one of the shop that they introduce me which is Hong Seng Kopitiam which is famous for its BBQ Pork (Char Siew) and also their Chicken Rice..

Chicken Rice (1)

Left office around 12.30pm where was told to head there earlier to avoid the crazy queue. When I reach, the queue is already up to the next 2 shop lot.

Chicken Rice (2)

Chicken Rice (3)

Just a simple chicken rice stall like that which is only famous for its BBQ pork can attract many pork lovers out there. Roast pork hanging and the feel and look of it doesn’t attract me much, also decided to give it a try.

Chicken Rice (4)

Chicken Rice (5)

Then we order the Char Siew of 6 pax, that comes in whole big plate like this with a bit mix of Roast pork and chicken was not in the list cuz they said its not good. BBQ pork is good, with burn end is crisp, soft juicy meat that well coated with their own special sauce and I just cant stop eating it. Roast Pork did not impress me that much as I had better ones before, as here the head is not that crispy as I like and the meat is quite dry  even though the meat with fats are my type just doesn’t give me a kick in it.

Chicken Rice (7)

Ahhh, this sure impress all of us, sour and spicy soup, which is quite sour enough that boiled till a bit messy with the ingredients and just lack of not spicy enough. If it had add a bit more of dry chili then would be perfect but no complain as their version win a lot of places.

Chicken Rice (9)

Then I saw next table order some pig innards then I was wondering where to order that, its located behind section operate by a old uncle that sell s porridge and I order pig intestine which is good! Chewy, and flavorful from the soy sauce he is cooking. RM 8 for this portion which is pretty reasonable. . .

Chicken Rice (8)

Our whole lunch meal comes to a total of RM8 per pax after divided out with 6 pax.. which is a good value and satisfy . . I would say, just attack the BBQ pork here, do try out others too if you like . . Just be there early to avoid the heavy lunch crowd at 1pm.

Looking for nice Chinese food for company functions or family gathering? One restaurant the few restaurant that often pop out in my mind is from Oriental Group. One of the restaurant I prefer cuz of their food quality is there. Nevertheless, I believe some of you do dine one of their outlet, Oriental Pavillion in Jaya 33.

Well, they have now expend to next building with new concept & dining experience which is known as Noble Mansion in The Plaza which is Jaya 33 new building that located directly next to it.

Oriental (1)

It is another huge outlet by them again as one of the latest creations by Executive Chef Justin Hor, inspired by delicacies of Shunde, the renowned food province in Guangzhou, China. Noble Mansion is a modern interpretation of a Chinese traditional mansion. The restaurant is divided into a few sections – The Lantern, The Bamboo Courtyard, The Terracota Rooms and The Grand Hall – to elevate your dining experience to the next level.

Specially for this outlet, there are a few signature dishes such as Liver Sausage in ‘Char Siew’ Roll, Giant Scallops, Fresh Water Prawns, Ocean Garoupa & other Seafoods in a Big Wok with Fish Stock, Pan Fried Live Australian Whole Abalone, Roast Suckling Pig with Liver Sausage, Steamed Live Australian Perch with Chef’s Special Preserved Radish.

Oriental (2)

Upon entering their main entrance, you will be greeted upon and be seated at this huge waiting area.

Oriental (3)

Oriental (4)

Oriental (5)

For big families you will love it here as their private dining room is pretty huge and was told can maximum host 3 tables as we are seated in one of the room.

Oriental (8)

Some of the rooms even comes with karaoke set. Interesting. .

Oriental (9)

Chef Justin did mention before as Malaysian diners are very different compare with other countries, that everything we consume must pair along with some sauces. Therefore he created his own signature sauces and one of the sauces that you must not miss is his Chili Oil. Ken took 1 + 1 for himself when the night ends and some of them too. I love it myself with its fragrant and not too spicy of it. Perfect to go along with almost all dishes.

Oriental (10)

For a start we kick start with appetizer Zuchinni with minced Ginger @ RM 8. Something simple, with zuchinni is very crips and ginger is not too spicy. Love it.

Oriental (11)

If you want some pork satay to kick start off with first then BBQ Pork in Skewers @ RM 12 per portion is well marinated and bbq with chef special sauce at the side that pairs pretty well.

Oriental (12)

Smoked Vegetarian Spring Roll @ RM 8

Oriental (13)

Premium Anchovies & Star Fruit in the Oriental Cincalok Sauce @ RM 14 will be one of my recommended appetizer to start off with. Its something new that I have not tried before especially to take star fruit to comes out with starter and anchovies that combines very well in taste. A bit sour with light salty sweetness end that makes this one of its kind.

Oriental (14)

Nomally we have pig in the blanket and in Chinese restaurant this will be one of the dish is similiar to that, Liver Sausage ‘Char Siew Roll’ @ RM 16. Drench in its own special sauce before going into pan fried and the fragrant of the char siew has the taste of light smoky end, top with some sesame on top to enhance the light taste of it.

Oriental (15)

If you do dine at Oriental Group often, I am sure that you know a few of their signature. One of it is Steamed Fresh Water Prawns @ RM 28 per pax. Huge juicy succulent prawn being steam along with organic egg yolk to make the sauce slightly creamy, which is just perfect that is not too thick. We drank the sauce till its last drop.

Oriental (16)

This is another new type of dish I am getting, Steamed Ocean Garoupa with Shunde Style @ RM 330 each. Love the taste of it as you can see there are green and red chili being added on top. Steam along that make the soy sauce taste awesome, filled with light green chili sour vinegar taste with chef special season for red chili make it mild spicy. Perfect to go along with rice.

Oriental (17)

Fish meat is so soft, taste sweet and fresh.

Oriental (18)

Ehhemm.. How often do you see such a huge shinning piglet being place infront of your dinning table. I can count mine with 5 fingers. 😀

Oriental (19)

We enjoy every bite of this piglet as its pretty huge. Well marinated from chef own special ingredient then slowly roast it. The skin is so crisps that after put in mouth, I can hear the person next to me on the sound of the crisps. The meat is soft and tender with fragrance of it so aromatic. A MUST HAVE!

Oriental (20)

Before our next dish, we are given lemon, star fruit shots to cleanse our palette before next dish. If I can have 4 more shots, it will be just nice. 😀

Oriental (21)

Lobster with Chicken & Pig Stomach in Spicy Sauce @ RM 80 per person.

Oriental (22)

One of the dishes that not many people will like the whole 3 ingredients being added on, especially me and a few others we feel blessed as most of the pig stomach is finish by us. Done perfectly well, with lobster is fresh and chewy to my likings and the spicy end its nice to end with a little spicy. Optional, you can add on with their chili oil to bring in extra flavor.

Oriental (23)

Oriental (24)

After with a lot of meat, I find that Braised wolfberry shoots with egg @ RM 28 per portion its very appetizing , simple and nice.

Oriental (26)

Next dish is another surprise for us as Roasted Suckling Pig with Glutinous Rice @ RM 330 is another wonderful dish.

Oriental (25)

Oriental (27)

Aromatic enough to make it as a closing dish for mains. Every one just attack on the skin first follow suit with the rice.

Oriental (28)

Rice Noodle with Abalone Sauce @ RM 28.

Oriental (29)

Sauce is thick enough and yet very fragrant as the sauce is being boiled and prepare for few hours.

Oriental (30)

As for dessert, we are being served with Chilled Sweetend Fuji Apple with Snow Jelly, Ginko, Fresh Lily & Red Dates @ RM 13 per pax. A MUST HAVE dessert that the soup is refreshing, mild sweetness and I am enjoying every sip and bite of it.

Oriental (31)

Angry Bird? Nope, this is cute little piglets known as Longevity Piglet Bun @ RM 28 for 4 pcs.

Oriental (32)

Its filled with leng yong and salted egg in it to make it a perfect ending for all of us.

Of course, I do dine at some of their outlets and surely this restaurant offereing is another new range of food by the Chef himselves to make this outlet different from what they have. IF you are looking to dine some Chinese food with some infusion from China, this is certainly will be one of the outlet to pay a visit. Recommended.

I remember quite long ago when I first start reading blog, this Sarawak laksa known as one of the best in KL that was blog by many bloggers on the quality of the food that similar to be compare to their origins. Little did I remember or I have nearly forgot about this place existence till my friend bring me here to satisfy on their cravings

nam chun (1)

Kedai Makanan Nam Chun  is a typical coffee shop where you can find in most of housing neighbourhood that house many types of hawker stall but this particular ones house 2 special stalls that have attracted many East Malaysian patrons to be hunting their favourite food which is famous for Sarawak Laksa and Kuching Kolok Mee.

nam chun (2)

Some where along those lines with a few reviews that I read, apparently this is one of the best but with slight inconsistency of quality      ( in other blogger review)

nam chun (3)

Dining in here could be hot and  you would just want to spend a quick 15 to 20 minutes.

nam chun (4)

Here is my bowl of Sarawak Laksa. I have never tried before laksa from the east and this would be  first experience. 2 prawns sitting on top of the noodle nicely decorated to make it colourful for my picture. Slightly thick soup base with a bit sourish, a bit strong taste of coconut milk, spread with some egg slices and  coriander leaves with a bowl cost RM5.00. One of the most unique thing is the special type of vermicelli that they are using, thicker then normal mee hoon.

According to my friend, today’s quality was so so compare to other time that they have had.

nam chun (5)

Kolok Mee, is another type of East Malaysia food that is top with many slices of Char Siew, some fish ball and blend in taste. IT taste normal for me besides that, apologize that the noodle had been stir as she is too hungry and makan first.

nam chun (6)

This is not East Malaysia food already as I was sitting there looking at old uncle cooking, what makes me order that he have a special pot of soup base that added on to cook along and I thought that must be his own soup base that had boil for long time to cook along. Not only that, he also have another side smaller pot that added on alot of mince meat after he had done the instant cooking.

This would have been a good perfect bowl of Instant Pork Noodle Soup if the mince meat wasnt that salty. The uncle is very generous with its ingredient and a huge bowl like that cost RM6.

nam chun (7)

Right after my meal, I was looking something to much some more then discover this little tricycle and went check it out. Its a motor that filled with home made nyonya kuih~

nam chun (8)

When I saw the selection I drool as the texture and quality that this little stall have to offer. By the look and colour texture had attracted me already.

nam chun (9)

I bought nearly everything a piece each. Conclusion, I love it so much and I ta pau another RM10 bucks worth of Kuih. Highly Recommended if you love Nyonya Kuih. One of the best that I come across.

Chicken rice is a very common food in our country. I am sure every one do have their very particular chicken rice stall including my best friend Ken. I found out that whenever his favourite stall is, its sure sardin pack, well hidden and of course expensive. Well, Restaurant Choon Yien or known as James Chicken Rice is no stranger to many foodie and despite I work nearby I did not know this place is famous for chicken rice till my friend curse me how could I not know. .

Choon Yien (1)

For most of famous place there are only 2 types of service you getting. One is super good or excellent near to first class service or another type is bad. This place certainly fell to errrr .. . Special case. This place is very well known for the boss being very ” lansi ” (snobbish) as he will scold his customer if :

1) they do not order properly

2) no patience you can leave

3) Please wait your turn

4) Please do not double order as I am still young and have good memory. You will make my process line Jam

the list goes on. Most customers will turn off or just walk away when the cook or server is like that but this place is very unique as despite people being scold including you are DATO, Tan Sri or who every is still same treatment yet keep coming as you can see branded cars park nearby.

Choon Yien (2)

Here comes our order, as the rice is fragrant. . .

Choon Yien (3)

Salted, spicy sour vegie soup is well balance with sourness of veggie that do not overpower the dry chili and asam skin cook along to tone it down. Nice~

Choon Yien (4)

I cannot deny that this stall here definately have one of the best char siew with lean meat being cut in between and can you see the balance of fat in between the meat is just as I love it. Caramelize edge with slightly burnt is something that I enjoy alot~ Recommended!

Choon Yien (5)

Chicken meat is pretty decent as what makes it good is the soy sauce base that the chicken had roast then soak along that make it good. Mix with its fragrant rice is just perfect not to miss their own chicken rice chili which is not too spicy and little sourish end is just the right combination.

Chicken rice is cheap in most kopitiam but not this stall. Total damage per head on that day is RM20 and being price at that way, it had shot up to first spot in my list for being the most expensive Chicken Rice stall.

You have to reach here early as stuff here sold out pretty fast. Best advise reach before 12.30pm and Char SIew is very limited per day. Most of them call in to reserve!

Remark: is it best advise not to visit here if you do not have the patience or got scolded by James. That is how he is~
