I do shop, eat and walk around in 1-Utama but surprisingly I never walk to around this area until I was out of idea what to eat that day and ask where is Subway only realise there are another food area instead of the 3rd floor. While walking towards Subway, this shop sure caught my attention as I am a big fan of deserts but I have not came across any nice desert that I have kept in mind as my much prefer or in hunting such as sweet desert (snowy ice) or anything in cold.
After finishing eating Subway, hurried to this place which looks like a nice place to hang out too.


From the outside I thought the books were real till I sat down only realise it was wall paper and it looks cool too, something like Library.

They do have a few categories of desert in their menu. Surely they have wide selections and picture illustration in it looks good too.
Till I came across and decided to order this desert ‘Mango Special Lo’ if I do not remember wrongly, I saw something like Hong Kong desert which makes me think back of the great mango drink Hoi Lau San, that tasted so good thought it would be good too.

When it was serve, me and my friend was like staring at it. ‘What a big bowl’ and mango cubes which is so little that can be calculated, and the base is like fettuccine (something that taste like taufufa) then mango syrup mix base. The taste is not bad but with the cost RM14.30(including service charge 10%), which is VERY EXPENSIVE for such a desert and quality that I think I can think of a few which taste much better than this yet cheaper.

Would just visit this desert for only once. Will not be returning back.

I have always been wondering when I pass this shop no matter day or night, its always quite pack. It is that nice were the question I have been asking myself…cuz I have a very bad experience with their Sunway Branch. Till we went to lunch for the Shabu Shabu next door and they said, har..not that kind they prefer then we shifted to this shop and I start to say, weiii..don wan this shop can ah, then most of them agree here then what can I say some more. So just tag along la..

Papa Rich interior design is always kinda exclusive kopitiam concept as when I stayed at my aunts place at Seapark there are 1 Papa Rich also which is quite pack with people and the same with Old Town. Currently I would rate that Old Town main competitor is Papa Rich which had been mushrooming like crazee. Popping up in most of the makan makan area.

In the menu, picture illustration is even better than Old Town but the only thing to test on was their quality of food.

Kopi Si Peng was strong in coffee flavour but disappointing the ais is to much which for a few sips its gone. Left the ice-bone.

Their Kaya and Butter Toast’ which is a bit different because they separate it out and let you spread it over yourself and the best part is the give you the whole slice of butter. The bread was bakar to crispiness on the edge and spread kaya and butter given is just very nice.
Nasi Lemak which the rice is cook with some santan which we prefer and the curry chicken is not that spicy, a bit lemak and the sambal is just nice. Not too spicy but eat along just pull up the taste of the dish.

I love their version of ‘Curry Mee which is very lemak and a bit thick in soup base. A bit spicy yet the soup is boiling hot which suits to my likings and I eat till sweating all over.
‘Prawn Mee look very disappointed but we were surprise by the taste of it. It was serve very oily base and we slowly scoop it off and left a bit which its original version should be and the soup base is very flavourful, taste like they had take the prawn shell to crush and cook with it. Its very sweet prawn shell base aroma and added in the chili making it spicy is just perfect yet its boiling hot.
‘Dry Ipoh Koey Teow which I find it nothing special to talk about as there are better ones.
I have lost the receipt but I can say that the price is slightly more expensive than Old Town but for this branch I definitely do not mind to come here again and its a good place for hang out with friends too.

I have always been to this area to hunt for my favorite duck rice. Never knew that, there is another hidden piece of gem inside this area. I was invited by Wilson along with others to try out the food here. After searching in google map it was the area that I am familiar with but I got lost looking for this shop. It is hidden at a street behind the main road which I turn into the small alley.

This would be the first chinese restaurant that I came across that serve Halal food as on that time, there are quite a number of malay dine in the restaurant too during Hari Raya.


I was there early, and took some pictures and found out that this shop do serve durian desert’s. Immediately ‘tinggg’ in my mind that it’s a thing must try. I am durian lover. Anything that had durian in it, I am going for it.

If you are a desert hunter, do not miss this shop too which offer variety of deserts.


If you crave for durian pan cakes, then you can look forward to ta pau, back. Eat it song song at home.

As always I will take the picture of the outlook of the shop. Then the lady that dine in there was one of the customer was so rude asking me don take don take and juling me. Never care on it.

I got excited looking at the menu, as tempted by the food picture illustration.

The very first dish that we got serve directly gives me a great impression as it serve one of my favorite meat, ostrich and it is called ‘Cape Ostrich Koey Teow’ charge at RM9. The meat was fried perfectly good in medium well that still manage to taste the sweet,soft and tender of the meat. The koey teow is fried evenly well with wok hei that blend the whole aroma a great taste.

When this dish was serve, my eyes nearly pop out as it was a huge serving, like serving for 10 people. Then the very next thing that caught my attention was, the owner mention that it was cook with durian. That excites me that for the very first time, there is a dish was actually cook with durian. I find the taste is very interesting, a bit spicy yet sour and the fish meat is soft yet soak well with the taste of the gravy yet my tongue had detected a very mild taste of durian which comes to my liking. ‘Tempoyak Ikan Temerloh Patin’ (Regular RM 40, Medium RM 80, Large RM 120).

Although I am name as taufulou but in Chinese restaurant is always hard to resist taufu. ‘Deep fried bean curd with Homemade Sauce’ (RM 6). Frying the outer layer of the skin to harden it a bit and on your first poke onto the taufu, it shake like you poke onto a jelly, that shows the sign of the softness and when put into your mouth it just taste like as pure as taufufa. The mild sour homemade sauce that pour upon had make the taufu outstanding.

Again, another dish that serve out, my eyes nearly pop out again with 2 big big prawns was putting on top of the mee. ‘Sang Har Noodle’ (RM 9 for 100 grams). I quickly took the picture of it and just cant wait to try out the mee. The temptation is there with such a nice gravy that shower upon on it. The prawns meat is hard and juicy, showing the sign of fresh prawns, the sang har mee I like it very much that the cook the gravy reasonable thick and with an egg that fried along with the prawns just makes the whole noodle taste sweet.

As I know this is one of their signature item and I am surely recommending this.

‘Sri Karak Curry Fish Head’ (Small:RM 25 Large:RM 49) is something that I would recommend too. I love the curry with the spiciness level is there, yet it is quite thick for the gravy(something that I prefer) that eat it along with rice is such a great combination. With the fish head that they are cooking in it, it is quite meaty.

‘Sri Karak Curry Laksa Mee’ RM 6.50 with the price tag stick on it, is something that you would not want to complain, with 2 prawns and some seafood, with the soup base quite thick yet not too santanese and I love my portion adding in a lot of chili.

‘House Special Claypot Chicken’ (Small:RM 12 Large:RM 24). I was quite full when this dish was serve but with the smell flying around making me wanted to try it out. The taste was awesome, I just love the sauce that they are using and with the chicken marinated cook along with the clapot is just as good as it looks.

‘Stir Fried Salted Vegetable and Bitter Gourd’ (Small: RM 8 Large:RM 15). Not a big fan of bitter gourd, but this stir fried had make me eat more than I expected just loving the very mild taste of bitter gourd that did not overpower the taste of the chili and comes to my liking.

After this heavy heavy food meal, definitely I still have room for deserts. What we were told, most of the deserts are involving durians. Then I was like good good.

I felt so privilege when this great desert was serve as it was done by the owner himself for us as it was just out from the oven. He mention that he seldom sells this is because it involves a lot of process and not many people ordering it.

I have to say that this would be one of the best desert as the top crust is abit crispy hard, yet when your spoon penetrate the top layer its very soft in the inside like a bread that soak with a lil of water that is warm. It taste abit like sponge cake in it, amazingly the taste of durian flavor there is strong as I like but adding in a bit of whipped cream just pull up the kickness of it. Something unique that I have tried. Recommended (if the owner is doing it) and I cannot remember the name.

‘Durian Pancake’ didn’t get much of my attention cuz is mild in taste as I prefer it in stronger taste version. Maybe I had taste better one before.

‘Durian ABC’ RM 6 that reminds me the great time for my food hunting when I was in Melaka for this desert. A normal ice kacang that top with a scoop of durian ice cream with ‘atapchi’ and mint leave is something nice in taste. The ice blended is soft and the flavor that added in wasn’t too sweet. Just nice.

‘Durian Tarts’ with solid crust at the side and the strong durian taste as the top layer of the tarts is something that I am expecting, quite a nice flavorful tart.

I got very curious over ‘Durian Bomb’ as the name and I find it like custard bun when you eat tim sum just that this durian bomb have crispy outer layer. If you can just put the whole thing inside your month and eat it, the very next thing that you will realize is that your mouth will be bomb with the durian flavor. . something that I would recommend too as this is also one of the top seller item in the shop.

By the session ends, I was full like a stuff pig with big portion and alot of desert at the end. Can kidnap me and be roasted in rich season flavor. Kekek.

These are the owner of the Karak Restaurant. Very friendly host as they never stop smiling.

pssttt: that is the guy that did the special durian desert.

Yatz was having a great time savoring his durian deserts.

Of course a great meal without a great group of friends would not be satisfying. These people would be, Wingz, Wilson and Racheal, Ken, Timothy and Yatz.

I have thank to Wilson for tagging me along for such a great meal. Definitely this place is in my recommendation list, it’s a hidden jewel in the area.

Korean food, at times its hard to resist when comes to BBQ. To me, their signature is always BBQ yet when I went to Korea that time, it was not the case but in Malaysia, it looks like this are the kind of food that we could get, all under one roof. Honestly, if you ask me where is the nice Korean BBQ food so far on the island, definitely I am recommending this shop. Being one of the latest addition into the market it had gain its reputation quite fast and quite recognise by alot of my friends too.

As I always heard to get good Korean food was some where around Ampang but then my buddy Yeong brought me to this shop at Sri Hartamas and then now they had operated in Penang. My parents not being a big fan of grill stuff then I decided to bring and expose them to the little great environment they have there.

Their decoration is sure the same as the one they had in Hartamas.

Even the interior. The restaurant is quite pack and it is advise to do a reservation before you proceed, if not you will of course be seated at this lower ground. The very friendly boss is from Korea.

Ground floor setting is different from upstairs.

Upstairs they do have their own private room that would best for birthday celebration, client or family gathering.
This would be the place which we were seated. A very traditional Korean concept that makes you feel like you are part of the culture.
If you are a Saju lover, then you would not want to miss their selection, temptation to order.

For me, I am 100% sure that I do not know how to read Korean yet with the translation of English on the dish would not be perfect with picture illustration. It is easy for me to ask my parents what they want to eat and just point without actually have to explain to them what are the sauces or how it looks like.
Variety of meats are available and with different seasoning too.
Before the mains for serve, your table will be filled with all those small little appetizer to start of with, if you find any that you like, you can just refill any of the choices or get the whole set refill at your desk at no time.
You will be only left a very small place for you to ngam ngam put your own cutleries only.
Being a pork ribs lover in BBQ pit which is a must order item, ‘Hanbang Dweji Wang Galbi’ RM35
The pork ribs was well marinated and
The Pork Ribs was well marinated balace with some fats and meat, and after BBQ’ing for a while the meat is tender and its juicy. If you wrap it with lettuce and dip with the sesame sauce will add in the extra kick in it.
Being a fan of ‘SonDuBu JjiGae’ the taste is very appealing. Not that spicy as the colour looks like yet a bit of the sour taste accompany by a bowl of rice is a great companion. RM17
To me in BBQ, lamb is always a must for me which is ‘Yang Gogi’ marinated evenly and was cook perfectly by the helper. BBQ to its softness and the taste of the lamb is there with oozing of the after BBQ juice that had created by the lamb on the grill pan is just something we enjoy very much. RM35

The perfectly grill lamb.
Normal eater like my parents, they always prefer to have chicken, just in case they do not know how to enjoy the rest of the order. ‘Yang-nyum Dak-Gal-Bi’ RM27

After enjoying the first 2 great dish, then this had become something like so so. It would be better if they serve this first at least your taste bud can try something from okay to good.
At the end of the meal, you will be enjoying a comlimentary watermelon but we were enjoying our great meal there. My parents would sure returning to this restaurant again.
