Local n Western Food – Charlie’s Cafe


Opened by Malaysian couple Sonny & Debra with a view to benefiting indigenous workers from Sabah & Sarawak as well as people who might not be able to afford a meal.



This chicken is damn bloody good. A must dish to order if you re here.


The Sarawak Laksa is also just as good. Not so spicy but very flavorful.


We had to try the Nasi Lemak because it’s a common food in Malaysia and everyone eats it. Here it’s best to go with the Ayam Goreng Berempah.

Just 2 of us and we shared 3 items. Totally satisfying meal and for dessert we had the Durian soft ice-cream. Buy one free one. Yummy!



There are two components of Charlie’s mission. Behind the scenes in the kitchen, the Borneo-born Sonny & Debra employ mainly folks from East Malaysia & try to use a fair bit of indigenous produce for their menu. Secondly, for customers who want to help out, a pay-it-forward sponsored-meals system is available: Give the cashier RM5, take a receipt & post it on the board; other people who come in can claim a free meal using your receipt if they’re short of cash or struggling to make ends meet.

Banana Leaf Curry Rice – Moorthy’s Mathai Restaurant

As common and ordinary as it may sound, we all love Banana Leaf Curry Rice! As Malaysians we are prone to enormous cravings that points us in the direction of a banana leaf restaurant. Haha!




Their signature dish of fried tenggiri fish is a must-eat.

Looking unassuming and even a little dry with its crust of chilli powder and spices, the dark brown chunk hid a juicy surprise within… firm and sweet tasting fish flesh.

So if you are in Subang this is the place to go for a Banana Leaf Curry Rice.

Wan Tan Mee – Heng Kee

Many would have known (probably even non-Chinese) that Wantan Mee (or also known as wanton noodles) is one of the trademark dishes of the Chinese community in Malaysia and beyond. In fact, the availability of this noodles is so abundant that almost every corner in a Chinese-lived vicinity has it.


Being bred in Klang and having tried some new and old Wantan Mee stalls, I have always stayed loyal to the one and only which I think has a quality of taste standing above par.


The green pickle chilly is a must when eating wan tan mee.


But my favorite is still the broad type of wan tan mee as shown above.

Big Stir Fry Wok – Medan Selera Lok Fook Yuen


This restaurant can cater to any request that you desire from noodles to dishes.


 But the one that caught my eyes was the one that the captain recommended which is a  Yin Yong noodles with a huge deep fried fish on top of it with plenty of vegetables.
