To get good Indonesian food locally in Malaysia is not easy. Found good ones yet the price is slightly high and not till recently, found out one outlet Restaurant Waroeng Oma that serve authentic Javanese Food that is pretty good, located in Sunway Mentari. We order quite a lot and did not realise that the owner is sitting just right there and she came to our table and greet us. Along that, get to know she is from Indonesia and this outlet is a compilation of recepi.

java (1)

this outlet is pretty easy to find as its facing the main road and few doors away from McD.

java (2)

Then the owner told us, if we love spicy food we should try their own homemade sambal. 3 types available and really depends your kind of preference and taste. The first one is sour mild spicy, middle one is more aromatic spice taste with spicinesss kicks in after a few bite and last one with fiery red, that doesnt look very spicy yet we are wrong, it gives the after spiciness too.

java (3)

Tried out with their Soto Ayam and turns out to be good,  that came out the soup already pass our criteria that to be yellowish that can be done in 2 version, lontong or vermicelli. Served with hard-boiled eggs, chicken slices and bean sprout, turns out to be good and quite authentic. Then I added their fiery red sambal in to make it extra kick. Remark, do not put too much as its really spicy.

java (4)

 How can I resist Bakso, with the soup is serve pippin hot chewy springy beef balls that goes along with the soup.

java (5)

 Ayam Bakar is another version of their food, that its being grill till some parts are slightly burnt as it is and to eat with this, must eat along with their fiery red sambal.

java (6)

Ayam Goreng Penyet, does comes with rice but we told her we did not want it cuz we are ordering more food to try out. Live up the expectation of look and taste hail all they way from Indonesia, well season and fried. We ended up order another 2 more portion. – Recommended!

java (7)

This Fried Fish(I have forgotten what is the exact name) is introduce by the owner too, its fresh and the meat is soft yet  its pretty huge. For those who don really take chicken meat with fish is the option, then this would be recommended!

java (8)

Nasi Uduk was highly recommended by the owner and we ordered that. True enough, it surprise us with the fragrant santan rice top with egg slices, with the little side dish that compliments well with it and best of all is the chicken been season to perfection that its very fragrant with light ginger and fried till crisp. Top of that with crunchy flakes to make it compliments better.

java (9)

Their ABC special is presented very colourful with the syrup taste very unique. 😀

As I went back early for this dining and I must say, for CHEAP authentic Indonesian food, this is the place to be. Their main range from RM6.50-RM12. Cheap right, I plan to visit this outlet soon again along with the awesome Martabak Manis(click here) not to be miss. Highly Recommended outlet~

I am a big fan of China food especially anything which is more towards Szechuan cooking style. Love their super spicy and oily base cooking. Yap, I might sound crazy as what my friend say but then I have dine one before which is really good in Melbourne, that continue my hunt for best Szechuan food in KL. Lucky Sichuan Restaurant is one of the nearest.

Lucky (1)

since its my friends birthday, then Sally highly recommended one of her regular spot which is Lucky Restaurant that sells szechuan food. Surely when Sze Chuan food is mention, I wont say no.

Lucky (2)

As for her booking and since she is a regular, we got a spot upstairs. I am amazed with the interior design that they are actually operating 2 levels of the shoplot and they have decorate the whole place with authentic Chinese ambiance. Wooden round door, with lantern lighting and bamboo painting on the wall.

Lucky (3)

Lucky (4)

Lucky (5)

In the menu, price are pretty much the same compare to the rest of the restaurant and everything looks good too.

Lucky (5.1)

Lucky (8)

 For starter, we head for something really spicy, as the sea of red chili oil is only deceiving.

Lucky (9)

Not really spicy or maybe my spiciness level had increase. Great start and its pretty much a must order Item.

Lucky (10)

For someone who cant take spiciness, then Fried bittergourd is highly recommended! Fried to perfection that bitter gourd taste is not too bitter and its very aromatic with wok hei. Ended order another plate.

Lucky (11)

Sweet and Sour Pork intestine was gone in seconds. Chewy and light spicy end that makes it nice to go with rice.

Lucky (12)

Sour Spicy Soup turns out to be out of my expectation as I have expected too much in this dish when comes to this restaurant. This shop the soup have more sourish and a bit strong of vinegar taste.

Lucky (13)

 this dish turns out to be good too, as the pork slices are soft, with sourish spicy gravy.

Lucky (14)

This is a must have, as fried chicken cubes are crispy and aromatic with their own seasoning of powder and fried along with lots of dry chilli. Not bad.

Lucky (15)

 Pai Kuat did not really finish as its quite normal. .

Lucky (16)

This is one of my favourite dish when comes to Szechuan restaurant. Some of you might find it too oily or cook in a sea of hot pippin oil. For this restaurant, I don really like their fish slices and their soup base.

Lucky (17)

 happy Birthday to our B’day Boi Marcus. . :d Another great cakes from Fatboybakes

Overall the food is good and I am keen to try their Malat Steamboat. .  smells good. For their fried dishes, I still prefer my favourite stall at Jalan Alor (click  here) currently they have fine tune to local taste, you have to mention authentic spiciness.

Along the highway as I always travel back and forth, by trailing away Nibong Tebal small town sign board along the highway as it was last round that I was heading back to KL by following my best friends Ian, both he and his friend decided to bring me to dine in this small little town. They told me that you will be surprise what they can offer for that kind of cheap price. Cheap as in SERIOUSLY CHEAP. *doubting.

pork knuc (1)

Nibong Tebal is actually located at Penang, Mainland and I rate Swee Garden Seafood restaurant is a hidden gem in the town as a place that famous among local that is about 10 minutes drive away from the toll exit to reach here. Which is pretty easy to drive here by recognizing a huge flyover to make  a turn.

Was told by both of them have to reach here freaking early to avoid massive huge dinner crowd that many dining tables will spill out to the road side as we reach around 5.30pm to have a very early dinner before heading back to KL.

pork knuc (2)

AS early as 5.30pm there are quite a number of families are already dining here.

pork knuc (3)

Fried Lala with Ginger is something that is fried simple yet infuse with chinese wine in it make it very addictive with hint of some spicy from ginger and fine slice chili.

pork knuc (4)

Asam Prawns is a big fat juicy prawns that well prepared and marinated. I whack nearly half of it.

pork knuc (5)

Simple fried veggie nothing much to shout about.

pork knuc (6)

Signature Crispy Fried Pork Knuckle 

pork knuc (7)

A portion that most of the table would order or I would say must not miss. Deep fried to perfection that the skin is very crispy, yet the meat in it is still soft and the amount of fats in between is just nice. This is not German Pork Knuckle therefore they do not serve any gravy along as this is Chinese Cross over cuisine. Just serve along with pickled shallots and tomato slices. – Recommended!

Total Damage we had for the dinner is about RM 75 for 3 pax which I would rate it reasonable cheap and not as ‘very’ cheap as my friend mention since its located in this small town, as also since we have a huge chunk of Pork Knuckle and some seafood along its decently price in this small town.

Surely I would not mind to recommended for you to drive all the way here to try it out for travelers also.

Back in college days, there is one little place that we used to hang out when craving for desert, before they move to a proper building which is this Crepe Cottage that located along side in Gurney Drive, well,  the current landmark to look for is this little shop is located next to Coffee Island or Overtime at Gurney Drive.

Crepe (1)

This humble little shop have very limited in place is run by a family and they have been operating for more than 10 years if I am not mistaken. Their shop is very limited in space, therefore always you have to wait as their service is pretty slow. On average for serving is about 20minutes and waiting time can stretch till 1 hour. So if you do not have patient then you can forget about this place.

Crepe (3)

There are quite alot of choices of Crepes to choose from in the menu with front and back . . .

Crepe (4)

Besides that, they do sell fusion food ranging from western, Italian and some locals cuisine.

Crepe (5)

Nutela @ RM 11

Crepe (6)

So we ordered 2 different crepes starting off with this one in wraps style. Wrap with banana slices, top with whipped cream, shower with chocolate rice on top and chocolate syrup and a scoop of Choco ice cream turns out to be the winner compare to another one, as banana is so fresh n soft, love the strong taste of it and pairs very well with nutela chocolate. The wrap is very aromatic and just eat along with full combination is savory.

Crepe (8)

 Sunburst @ RM 10

Is another version of pancake desert is more like so round slice like MacD breakfast pancake but of course its much better than MacD alot of times. This comes with slices of mango, peanut and top with Mango Ice cream. We just love the base of the pancake . Still think Nutella is better.

Well, not many places offer very nice pancake desert and this is certainly one of the places to look for, prices might be a bit expensive as I still think worth spending for once a while .. for their food I have not try before yet. One of the recommended place by me if you are craving for crepes in Penang.

If you do find other better places please do let me know, I love to go find out on it .. 😉
