In the city, there are actually lots of things to eat. There are one street in particular that pretty well know for a lot of beef noodles. It really depends on your taste preference as many of them love this stall, Lai Foong Beef Noodle that located in Jalan Tun H.S Lee that operate inside a kopitiam called Kedai Kopi Lai Foong. There is one opposite too that some of my friends prefer over that stall.

For this stall, it had been ages since I last visited this place and few years back I was firstly introduce to it as my ex company boss love this stall alot and the secretary have to drive all the way down here to make a take away for him.

An early coffeeshop place that you might wanna consider to drop by for some good food or a beef noodle soup in Pudu.

I was also told that not to miss their Char Koey Teow and I tried ordering using Hokkien and obviously they don really udnerstand me. Means not Penang Char Koey Teow but the next stall auntie is surely from Penang that sells Jawa mee and stuff. Would try that next round.

Beef noodle here are pretty good as you stand nearby the stall you can smell the aroma of the beef noodle soup already. Imagine how many times those beef slices have to dip into the soup to make it cook and towards noon, the soup will be thick enough to make it extra kick.

You can actually choose your ingredient. Of course mine, I would love it to have a good mixture with alot of other spare parts.

lai hong (6)

this is what I mean the soup is pretty sweet and aromatic with bones and meat are being boiled along./

here is my bowl of slice beef noodle that some Louise & Anna order.

lai hong (9)

Their Beef balls is a must order. Springy and a bit solid that good enough to chew. I finish half of it. Hehe~

Here is my bowl of beef noodle. A good mixture. .

lai hong (12)

I have always love mine with a good mix. We were there around 11.30 am and the soup is strong and aromatic. You can even taste some spices that they have added in there. Beef Slices are good, done medium then let the hot soup make it cook. For an early weekend morning to have this, its sure satisfying. One of a good bowl of beef noodle soup in KL.

If you are new here for the first time, do give it a try~ Parking there is a big issue. You can consider park at Central Market then walk over.

A new outlet that had just pop out in the neigbourhood of Damansara Kim. Tug in a quiet area but it had start to gain its fame thru online platform. We got to know that KomPassion one of a NON-Halal Thai food, then it makes us even more eager to try it out. Then decided to head to that outlet and do menu attack again..

kompassion (1)

kompassion (2)

I love the interior of the outlet which is creatively set up, that is very simple yet look elegant, with zink atap roof, wooden platform chairs on the side with pillows and lights below  . .

kompassion (3)

 Water paip s as the support frame of the lap. .

kompassion (4)

A group of us sitting there quietly browsing on the menu, then got slightly excited as they offer quite a range of food to choose from and many new items or signature to hunt for. Price are slightly more expensive . .

As usual, when we go in a group of food bloggers without any invites, the usual still we will be equip with our gear – lights and camera. As the food came, every one in the restaurant were very curious on what we are doing. Then only the owners drop by our table to introduce themselves as Desmond Wong and Tan Huat Jin (who are brothers-in-law). Even better to know that both of them actually  teamed up with Chef Nikom Uatthong to set up this restaurant.

How the name Kompassion came up is they know the chef have alot of passion in cooking hence by using his last 3 character of his name and combine with this and that is how the name being created.

kompassion (6)

We started off with starter. KomPassion Chicken Wings @ RM17.90 A very simple dish that well marinated with spices and I was saying, if order a beer would have been perfect.

kompassion (7)

Stir Fried Kai Lan @ RM15

kompassion (8)

 First pork dish and we are all excited, as The Paneang Curry Pork Loin came first..

kompassion (9)

A bit dissapointed on the other end as for the price of RM 35 its a rather small portion. Curry is thick with a hint of basil taste after that. Its not bad to go along with rice.

kompassion (11)

If you prefer something light and more soupy gravy, Green Curry Crispy Pork is the one that you should go after. Filled with basil leave taste, slightly creamy curry gravy and the pork cook along can still taste the crisp of the [email protected] RM35

kompassion (10)

Tom Yum Fried Rice with Grilled SeafoodRM18.90 , is cook in a healthy way with multi-grain brown rice is used and the serving came with grilled squid rings, a medium-sized prawn, crabsticks and salmon fillet. At the price I find this is very reasonable and rice being fried to fragrant and the sauce pairs very well, with seafood is fresh.

kompassion (15)

If you travel to Thai often, then many of us would not miss pork leg rice, as its the same in Kompassion Pork Leg Rice, when we saw this in the menu, its a must order. Pork meat is soft and juicy with gravy and the chili sauce that pair along is mild spicy and sourish end taste.  @ RM25.90

kompassion (13)

One of my favorite which is under KomPassion Special, we ordered the Double Cooked Pork Belly and Soft Shell Crabs with Cucumber Salad @ RM65. The pork skin is awesome, that its crispy on every bite and the meat is tender. Unami sauce that shower into it that makes the taste even better. Soft Shell crab on the other end fried to perfection till crisp and top with ebiko to make it even more bitefull feeling. – Recommended!

kompassion (14)

Tom Yum Fish @ RM45 with a spicy level of 2 (choose from 1-3, 3 being the spiciest). For those who cant really like spicy then would advise to go for level one. As the spiciness doesnt kicks in immediately, will suddenly shot up and I down a glass of water instantly. Its challenging yet I would not mind to go for level 3. 😀 Fish slices that cook along is soft and fresh. – recommended!

kompassion (16)

Tako @ RM10 is one of the signature in the outlet as its better for you to pre-order first when you are ordering your meal. Smooth coconut milk texture on the top and pandan base makes it hard to resist and and Ice Cream with Jackfruit and Red Ruby @ RM10, I find it pretty average..

Cheese cake are complimentary for us to try (bottom left)

In the end our bill came into RM 382.50 for 6 pax. Slightly more expensive than normal dining restaurant but its pretty satisfying with the offering in the restaurant. Surely will come back again as there are a few dishes that I am looking to back for.

Remark: do note that this is a Fusion Thai restaurant as the taste might not be at your expectation as the taste had been tweak.

If you are looking for some nice Thai food, surely this would be my another recommended restaurant.

There is 2 row of shop houses sitting right in the middle of the whole neighbourhood in Damansara Heights, you will be spoil for selections of what to dine in this area. Not only that, its an area also pretty well know for Happy Hours with a few bar is in this area. The Full Moon Bar is no exception from that too.

[No Longer In operation] – currently is Huckleberry

Moon (1)

Operating about a year plus, it had start to gain popularity around the non muslim as this is one of a only very few outlets that serve Pork. With hot weather recently, its a great bonus to discover that they are serving set lunch now starting from RM12.90.

Moon (3)

AS the night is young, we are serve with their signature Mojitos.

Moon (4)

We get to sample some of their signature for the night that starting off witha platter of Spicy Fried Chicken Wing, Black Pepper Lamb Parcels, Fried Breaded Mozzarella and a skewer of Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken. 

Moon (5)

If you do hang out at the outlet for beers, then Roast Pork Belly and Chargrilled Honey Lime Chicken will pair very well with it as the marination of both dish is very well done and cook to perfection, along with the chicken is fried till crips and aromatic.

Moon (6)

Next we were told to challage on this dish with its excessive spiciness level  is Butter Briyani Rice with Spicy Sri Lankan Tamarind Pork Belly and Mutton Varuval.  When this plate is serve, the aroma of the curry and spices filled up our nose instantly. First few bites of the briyani rice is bursting with spices and flavours are awesome! Then after that, I am burst with excessive spiciness that just hit hard on my tongue. Love the taste of the spiciness, but not really a fan of cloves as they cook pretty much in it. If they tone it down, then would have been a perfect dish.

Both Pork Belly and Mutton are cook to perfection with the curry are well marinate and coated on the meat. Taste of Mutton is more outstanding than the pork.

Moon (7)

As the days pass, the demand of  Hokkien Mee for supper is pretty good. With consumption of beer into our belly, the version of Hokkien Mee is shower with alot of Chu Yau Cha (Pork Lard). If you find that the current serving is lack of  it, you can just order extra Pork lard at RM 4. For a Bar to cook Hokkien Mee, I must say its pretty impressive!

Moon (8)

Not only Hokkien Mee in Demand as their Bak Kut Teh is also another popular dish among many people who are looking for supper in the outlet.

Moon (9)

Broth been cooked for hours to get the best taste of it, and do note that the taste of the soup here is not strong in herbs as customer here prefer mild version.

Moon (10)

At the end of the meal, we were pamper with Cheng Yi (Fatboybakes) cakes. As always, his cakes never dissapoint us and always on top notch. If you do plan to order, can check out his website. fatboybakes.blogspot.com

Moon (11)

Usually when I am back Penang, a week before I will bug my friend to bring me nice places to eat or their latest discover, (sounds like I am a foreigner or outstation guest). Restaurant Hock Chuan Heong is one of the place that they usually will pop by for lunch is this traditional Hokkien dishes in Macallum Street here.(I used to stay here for 7 years, didnt know such shop existed.)

Oyster (1)

For those who are not familiar around the area, it would be tricky to locate it as its hidden behind a row of shop house that Pos Office Malaysia would be the landmark.

Oyster (2)

This place its famous for its authentic Hokkien dishes especially on their Oyster series. Its super pack during lunch time and it is advisable to do early lunch.

Oyster (3)

All the dish serve up pretty fast and this is what happen when you have 2 girls very hungry and cant wait for me to complete taking the picture first by snapping some of it first.. 😀

Oyster (4)

One of the dishes that must have is their classic Fried Oyster (Oh chien) . In most of the version that we have is either crispy or starchy and back to traditional its starchy. Fried to aromatic and dipping with their special chili sauce that makes it taste even better.

Oyster (5)

I cannot remember when is the last time I had this dish, that it was too long ago, that it used to be one of my grandma’s favorite dish. Found back the authenticity place for it, Oh Mee (Oyster Noodle) comes with generous ingredients and the gravy is slightly mild and find that noodle is over cook that make it too soft. Overall its not bad that many old people will sure love this taste.

Oyster (6)

This is Tau Kua Suan Na dish is fried and cooked with lots of leeks, added with little 5 spices powder to bring up the taste a little more. Gravy is nice and pour it onto rice, is good~

If you are looking for some authentic food then this is one of the place to hunt for. One of the set back of this location is limitation of Parking and best to park around Post Office area and walk towards behind it, or residential around that area.

Remark: The owner is a quite lansi (arrogant)

Early morning what do you usually have for your breakfast? Western? Local cuisine? It had been a while since I last visited this place, which is old school and classic. Its not more than this famous Indian cuisine that had been operating here for more than 10 years. Roti Canai Transfer road is also known as one of a landmark to me and my friends.

I could not even can remember when was the last time I came here, it was many many years back.

transfer road (1)

I have always wanted to drop by but most of the time I could not wake up. At last was force to wake up by Ken and manage to come by this place.

transfer road (2)

On the tray itself, roti canai is being fried non stop as many people are waiting and taking away too.

All the gravy are serve pippin hot and it was just perfect that the morning itself it was morning and just the right things to pair after.

transfer road (7)

transfer road (8)

Dining experience here is very different compare to other places as you have to squeeze in this pretty tight spot to have your seat. With much more seating, canteen style pretty much reminds me of primary school days.

Every one just sit in single line and face the road yet we enjoy the view of the busy chef preparing all the pipping hot roti canai.

transfer road (9)

What we usually order a piece of beef in this special gravy with their very own recepi, do not deceive by the fiery red curry as its not too spicy yet aromatic with spices.

Love mine with lots of extra gravy and another item that you shall not miss is their season onions to pinkish colour. A bit sweet in taste which is their signature item here.
