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.

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

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!

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~

Food hunting is always in our list on-going where to go for nice food hunt, but sometimes when people tell me on the location my usual  reply would be like ‘Hah! So far? Aiiii . .. . .’. as for this round I know that itu Eric very choosy in food should be okay in his taste then I got tag along into one of the area, Kepong dalam dalam to me. . .to hunt this Heng Bak Kut Teh Delights Place.

By reading some blog, I just got to know that this Heng Bak Kut Teh got some history itself. The story begins when the family started its Bak Kut Teh Recepi in Southern Malaysia, Johor by the Heng’s Family in 1960. Their choice was to create healthier range of Bak Kut Teh which they started to work on it, the aroma of the Bak Kut Teh had attracted many of the neighbor to try on their discovery…  few years later 1963, there is where Heng’s Bak Kut Teh had establish and many students came by to learn from the Heng’s Bak Kut Teh Recipe.

What I found out that, there are a few Bak Kut Teh place with Heng’s wordings also but this place is the original place from the Heng’s Family.

With they way the preparing it, even when I take this pictures, the soup aroma is just so tempting.

heng (4)

I always love my pot of Bak Kut Teh with all spare parts in it, that would be a perfect bowl of BKT!

heng (5)

The Lou Keok Wan – or lou chu yoke. (Dark sauce pork knuckle), love the taste of it, which a bit strong in vinegar taste but then had perfectly cook till the skin its soft and go along with rice, just perfect!

heng (6)

Many people love this dish, Sheen Lat Choy (Sour Spicy Vegie), as alot people like to have it in different taste, some with more spicy less sour, some more sour less spicy, as I discover this bowl which had been cook evenly with sour and spicyness is just there, when you drink much of it, you will feel more spicy towards the end of it which comes to my liking.

heng (7)

I love Bak Kut Teh alot especially those taste with very heavy Herbal taste, in KL just cant find the taste I like. This claypot of Bak Kut Teh Soup is just nice that I think will suits every one, that it is quite clear in the soup, yet the taste of herbal is not that strong.

heng (8)

Next is the Chue Keok Chou (Pork Leg Vinegar) with the amount of fats and the gravy cook till a bit thick, fuh~ its too good to comment on it

heng (9)

Next is the  Black Pepper Soup with some spare parts. I like this soup also, with a hint of mild black pepper taste.

heng (10)

Wong Chau Kai (Yellow rice wine chicken), some of you might find this soup strong in rice wine and heavy ginger taste, its definately very good for those who catch flu. We had this during it was raining heavily and it was just one of a good dish to be served that night.

heng (11)

The Special Rice is the rice that you must try, with their very own unique combination and style of cooking, the rice is very fragrant and rich in ingredient. It comes with daily special rice. So, try on your luck to get this.

This is definately one of my recommended place if you are looking for a nice and cheap Bak Kut Teh to eat. For so many dish on the table and it comes to less than RM70 for that night with 4 pax.

Concept kopitiam industry had been a boom at the moment. You can just see every where or corner is filled with different name and concept that they have. After Old Town, I believe Pappa Rich is one of their very next competitor. By hearing saying that the food is not bad, and my parents thought of something light to eat, so decided to choose this 1.

Compare to Old Town, I liked their interior design more, gives you comfy feeling and surely a great place to hang out.
When I look into the drinks menu, the name of the drink ‘Longan Milk Honey Ice’ caught my attention on ordering it. Something unique. A warning to those who have obesity. Please do not order this. The drink is damm sweet. It feels like you are drinking sugar syrup. I only manage to drink a few sips. That’s all. If the sugar lvl decrease by 70%, I think it would surely taste nice. RM6.90

When this ‘Roti Steam Kaya’ was served to my dad, my impression was, roti Bangkali(an Indian with the motorcycle selling bread) is served. Nothing special on this yet it cost RM4.50.

‘Nissin Noodle Fried Sausage n Chicken’ was my order. It is the far most plain ever dish that I have eaten in a restaurant which you can just cook yourself at home. Tasteless yet watery and the vegie did not wash clean. Cost RM 7.90 which I think is very expensive compare to those in Kim Garry or other Hong Kong restaurant or Old Town.
My mom was a very chin chai person when comes to food, but she irk about this ‘Mee Soup Foo Chuck n Fish Cake’ which is very salty. She said that its like eating a bowl of salt which I also tried, its really like putting your mouth taste some sea water. RM8.90
My bro had this ‘Pappa Chicken Chop’ and only one word for this. No comment or simply plain! RM15.90
‘Pappa Cendul’ Talking about cendul, thought that with its classy look of the restaurant and the serving of desert wouldn’t be disappointing yet it proves me correct. The ice did not blend very smooth, yet when you put it your mouth is like ice crush. If directly swallow, chances of throat damage might happen. The gula Melaka is very sweet which put too much. The santan taste a bit weird. Did not finish also. RM5.50
‘Tau Foo Fa Tong Yuen’ always remain one of my big time favorite. For this case, I just don like the taste of its soya. The skin of the tong yuen is too thick like eating flour than the filling in it!RM5.90 till the end, I still think the 1 in pasar malam taste much better than this.
My family and I had most disappointing meal and I would rate worst ever eaten so far yet with the price tag on each of the meal and drinks, its overprice and also have to pay gov tax and service charge. Definately BANNED this branch. Would not return anymore.
Maybe would try other outlets, since there are a few of my friends saying that they taste much better than Old Town but still prefer Old Town alot.

Sunway Pyramid,(old wing)
Lower Ground (ice skating wing)

In our package to Redang, food was included. Can say that the food is worst than the food in my company canteen.
Arrival of Day 1 lunch:
The vegie is tasteless. Have to add soy sauce on myself to bring up the taste a bit.
The fish is not really fresh and the tomato in the meal is just more like a decoration rather than the taste.

Fried Wantan with our rice?seems abit weird. Eating more of the skin rater than then the meat in it~

The ABC soup is more like a hot water and just chuck in the rest of the ingredient and leave it to boiling point and then ready to be serve.

The Curry Chicken is thick in sauce but mild in flavour. Cant really pick up the gravy from it as it is thick! The chicken is slightly over cook.

Day 1 Seafood Dinner:


The chicken wing in s not bad, as they are well kept on fire temperature to pangang it~

The lamb was a bit disappointed because it is very chewy and hard to bite offf. More like the meat is overcook and tasteless!

Normal sausage. Just that for breakfast~

Didnt even bother to try cuz just normal fish ball as my friend said.

Cant take beef. So no Idea.

The food gravy is nice. Well wrap but just that wrap not enough compact the sauce can just season abit and sock it in~

Day 2 : Morning Breakfast

Normal sial Maggie Hon…
Sial punya bee hoon.
Day 2 : Morning Breakfast

Last week, my friend know that I like to eat so they brought me to this place. Curry Fish Head is also one of my favourite although I do not really know how to eat it except for the fish meat. My first impression when I reached there was like ‘Oh..noooo, sure gonna be hot!’

As we reached pretty early, so the crowd is not so much and the parking space is quite alot. Can just park along the road side.

This is what I would call smoking zone with no air conditioning. They have another area with air condition. When I went in there, were just ngam ngam got 1 table left for us. It is already full in there.
As time pass, the crowd are pouring in during lunch hours.
I did not know what to order there, so let my friend order everything. So this came by for the first dish, Lala Fried with Garlic and Chili’. Clear taste, simple dish but fried to perfection. Got the ‘Wok’ taste and the garlic taste sure do stuck on the lala. Then every 1 was already having a piece of it. When the rice came, already half plate gone.
This is their signature item which is Jiong Jhing Fish Head’ The fish is very fresh as the meat of the fish is just so soft without the stinging taste of it. The best part of this dish of course is the gravy of it. It is black bean sauce with some chili and another taste which makes it so perfect to put on with rice. My friend was happily putting the sauce on the rice till like banjir. Some even just drink it like that. Was not too salty, and u would want more after that. Highly Recommended

Next would be the ‘Curry Pork’. The thickness of the curry is just perfect. The meat was soft and wasnt too hard till you have to much quite long to swallow. The curry is mild and goes very well with rice also.
The vegie is nothing special Vegie with garlic’. Just an additional dish to add along with it.
Overall, we were very satisfied with the food there, and the fish head was very big. The total bill came by RM77 with 2 fish head and the rest. The price was very reasonable for 7 people. Looking forward on returning there.

Jalan 5, Chan Sow Lin , KL
(from KL) – Sg Besi highway, then turn left into Jalan Chan Sow Lin,
then you will see a traffic light on the T-junction. Turn Right and go all the way in till you reach a mini bridge and go forward not more than 400m you should see the restaurant on the right.

Nothing much to do on Chirstmas day, and hungry as well during dinner, so called up my buddies for dinner. Decided to go to The Curve to hunt for food. After every one do not know what to eat, the restaurant I choose got banned from them and we ended up here. Bubba Gump. All of us have not tried before. So AGREED by every one.


The interior is quite classic. Did tried to take a few pictures and the girl on the first table keep staring at my camera direction. Lol..Gotya..on Candid..!!! lol..

This is our table, which I find it very unique. Every table have different design. Definitely nice for photo.

We started off with a starter, Onion Rings, whereby I see alot of people ordering this. Definitely it is much nicer compare to A & W. It does not goes well with BBQ sauce but Goes very well with the other sauce(don know what sauce is that). We ended up get 2 more extra for that sauce. It cost RM14.90

Here we are, with our onion rings style. From head to body.

After left 2 of the rings, I decided to ask Jason to tried to mix it with cabbage and 2 of the sauce. RESULT: “It taste horrible”, that is what he said.

This is the first main dish which is Salmon & Vegie Skillet. Honestly, this food looks nice, the taste is not really good. 1st, the salmon overcook makes the whole fish abit solid. 2nd, the whole thing is salty, we think that the chef might had accidentally put alot. Thought of sugar but it is salt. The vegie is also over cooked. So the whole dish, we did not finish it. Left half. Price for this RM35.90. With the quality like dat, not worth it.
This is Bourbon Street Baramundi. The best among all those. Definitely highly recommended for those who loves fish or go to this restaurant. The fish is just so soft, feels like when you have a bite in your mouth, it is soft and smooth with the perfect sauce they mix with it. Just perfect. The mash potato is very nice. Milky and buttery taste. The fried pieces of potato mini strips, goes well along with the mash potato or just eat it like dat, its crunchy and a bit salty, but nice. It is price at RM29.90.
This dish is called Shrimper’s Heaven. I think they can rename it to Shrimper’s Hell because the shrimps that they serve in this basket is totally not fresh expect only one(6 o’clock shrimp). The rest all hopeless. When you bite in your mouth, it is not hard on the shrimps, it feels like ashes. GELI. Hate to eat shrimps with that kind of feeling. This dish is Totally BANNED and the most expensive of all RM44.90. (WTF) with this kind of little serving and quality. Totally disappointed.
Only 1 more left for this food comment. The chips are nice. Taste better than the shrimps.
The desert is called Mama’s Strawberry Shortcake. What we wanted to order all already finish which is their signature desert. Which in the menu, the order will be the 1st(chocolate in glass) and the last(Cinnamon thingy). Ended up we have to force ourself to order this.
Well well, to much our complain during the meal, as closing for the whole dinner, add on another disappointment. The shortcake taste more like pancakes. The cake is warm, not so hard, salty mix with sweet strawberry sauce and with ice-cream. The whole thing does not goes well. The other cream thing also taste weird. Disappointed desert. Cost us RM16.90. Rather have another Onion Rings.
Total bill is RM 180. Which I find it kinda expensive for the food quality including 5% gov and 10% service charge.
Will try again some where in the future. Hopefully wont let us down again.
