tbwl at the Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur
the art of a luxury hotel experience
A truly elegant and refined space for a leisurely afternoon spent partaking in the time-honored ritual of Afternoon Tea. Indulging ourselves in three elegant tiers of freshly baked scones, petite gourmet sandwiches, quiches, pies and desserts accompanied with a perfectly-steeped pot of The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur Blend. The tea was so nice that I lost count of the number of cups I drank.
The ambience is enhanced by a quartet that plays soothing melodies.

Aunty Christina was only operating a small stall inside a Kopitiam in Lucky Garden in Bangsar for many decades and I have eaten her Sarawak Laksa many times already.
Only recently she moved her business to her own premises in Sea Park which I finally got a chance to locate her restaurant and once again eating her awesome Sarawak Laksa. The menu was pretty simple and another thing that caught my eyes was the special dish of Hakka Abacus Seeds which I could not resist to make an order. Being a Hakka myself how can I not eat them. The Abacus was just as awesome and full of flavors.
I believe this is a closely knitted family business as everyone was so friendly and busy at the same time. I managed to get a glimpse of Aunty Christina in the kitchen busy preparing and cooking her dishes. All hands on by herself.

Easy to find just look out for CIMB bank and the restaurant is next to it.
I need to taste all in one go so I ordered the platter which consist of Deep Fried Chicken, Stuffed Sotong and Sambal Udang.
Once a while it’s good to move away from the original Malay Nasi Lemak and go to the Chinese version of Nasi Lemak.
Brilliant Nasi Lemak house started in Kepong back in July 2010. Over the years, they have expanded their business to have branches in Puchong, Damansara Utama and Kota Damansara. Bukit Tinggi in Klang was opened in Oct 2015. Their nasi lemak set is their best seller with side order choice of pork rendang, chicken nyonya, stuffed squid and shrimp. Their sambal is tasty, moist, spicy and with nicely diced onions in them.

This restaurant is just a stone throw away from Subang SS15 LRT station.
Super famous butter milk chicken
Crispy fried pieces of chicken are generously doused with a creamy and delicious butter & milk gravy – perfect with a bit of rice and chopped chilli padi.
The main reason why we’re here is because of this menu. Gold Chilli Butter Milk Chicken here have a reasonable portion sizes. Personally I like how consistent the condensed buttermilk sauce and the sweet taste it produce. They added a little curry leaves and chilies to give it a little kick to the sweet buttery sauce.

Ever seen those plates of noodles and giant prawns and wondered what they are? Well, introducing the Sang Har Mee – or if you may, giant freshwater prawns noodles.
Divine freshwater prawns that drops mass flavours of natural sweetness, while a savoury broth softens the partially crunchy noodles.
The Sang Har Mee is always in the center of attraction

This restaurant is very famous for it’s Bak Kut Teh in Selayang, Batu Caves near Kepong but I am not here to eat the Bak Kut Teh for obvious reason, I am from Klang.
Claypot Curry Fish Head is one of the many popular dishes in Grandpa’s restaurant. Wow! tasted really hot and spicy full of aroma that really goes well with a plate of plain rice.
In addition we had the Pork Leg Stew which was recommended by the waitress. The meat was tender and juicy.
Pepper Soup with Pork Stomach which was very fiery.
Generally the food was pretty good and I am sure the Bak Kut Teh was good too although we did not order it but I managed to ask for a bowl of Bak Kut Teh broth just to indulge my curiosity and the taste was not too bad actually.

Ah Yee Curry Mee, or 阿姨咖喱面 is located along Jalan Kepong Baru opposite a surau in Taman Kepong, the street surrounded by many other Chinese street food which are famous too.
Chee Cheong Fun is the highlighted here, and of course it is popular with a reason. What makes Ah Yee Curry Mee Chee Cheong Fun noteworthy would probably be the flat rice noodles itself which is smooth, with more chews. It is freshly prepared by a noodle factory using owner’s special recipe, only for Ah Yee Curry Mee stall.
The Curry Kueh Teow is equally good with lots of ingredients and almost raw cockles.
They are very generous with the curry broth because this are the 2 dishes that are most popular with the customers. Tasted really good especially the Curry Chee Cheong Fun.

Bak Kut Teh with Lala
Klangites are normally for the original taste of Bak Kut Teh and to add seafood into the already famous dish by itself only a handful can appreciate it. So it’s really an acquired taste.
Butter Deep Fried Tilapia with Shredded Pickle Cucumber and Onions
Lai Sar Ng(in Hakka language) is made famous in Kajang by the Hakkas and now in Klang too. No words can describe the uniqueness of this dish but once you take a bite in your mouth you will never stop eating until all is gone. That’s how good it is!

The mouth watering menu makes us want to order more dishes but for now we stuck to my 2 favorite dish seafood Kak Kut Teh and Lai Sar Ng.
