Kopitiam – Restaurant Swee Hing


Restaurant Swee Hing was formally in Overseas Union Garden in Old Klang Road but was forced to vacate when the owner wanted to turn the existing coffee shop into an office block hence the relocation into the new premises in Sri Petaling which became more popular than before.


Two of my favorite stalls the Loh Mee and Prawn Mee


This popular Loh Mee stall serves 2 version of noodles which is the homemade Mee and Yee Mee and when you eat this don’t forget to add some Chinese vinegar.

And as for the Prawn Mee the broth is so flavorful and even taste better when it’s piping hot.

These are some of the other food that can be found here in RSH which taste good as well.


Wanton Mee, Pan Mee, Prok Noodle, Char Kueh Teow, Yong Tau Fu, Fish Ball Noodle, Curry Mee, Chinese Nasi Lemak, Siew Pau and many more

Hakka Lui Cha – Jinjang Selatan


As far as Lui Cha is concerned this could be the best I have ever tasted.


Open shed concept.


The soup is warm, thick and fragrant.


Really generous amount of ingredients. In fact, as soon as I dug in, I realized that there were way more ingredients than rice. Brown or white rice is your choice.

Afternoon Tea – The Ritz-Carlton Kuala Lumpur

Afternoon Tea


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.

Curry Chee Cheong Fun – Ah Yee Curry Mee


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.

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.

Hakka Cuisine – Ying Ker Lou

Hakkas have a distinctive culture and history, with a lineage believed to be the descendants of the northern Hans people living in Shanxi, Henan and Hebei. As the named ‘Hak’ means ‘guest’ in Chinese character, as they are newcomers when they fled south plagued by wars and disasters during Eastern Jin Dynasty. Hakka cuisine, to some extent, was greatly influenced by their culture and living conditions during the migration. When fertile area had already been occupied by the locals, they need to roam far and wide for agricultural land. It required great physical strength. Hence traditional Hakka cuisine has these characteristics : salty, oily, flavorful and preserved.








I am probably the descendants of the Han people and I am proud of my Chinese heritage and being a Hakka I would always bring my foreign guest to dine here as the food are so authentic and also they have outlets in most major shopping mall in Klang valley.

Banana Leaf Rice – Devi’s Corner


William Yap

Bangsar’s most treasured Indian restaurant is built on the foundation of rich curries and generously spicy condiments. The restaurant’s daytime banana leaf section is tucked away upstairs, the banana leaf range is an impressive one – opt for the creamy, dreamy Kerala fish curry but be wary of the chilli-laced mutton masala. The curry laced fried bitter gourd is free flow. This isn’t the cheapest banana leaf meal in town but air-conditioned Bangsar corners come with a price.

The tables here are communal, so you’ll most probably be sitting next to a stranger during your meal during peak lunch hour.

Nasi biasa berlauk

The menu features the all famous Nasi Kerabu where its fluffy rice is cooked with bunga telang along with a variety of minced ulam (traditional salad) distributed on top completing it with a few splash of sambal and budu (fish sauce). Aside from the Nasi Kerabu, Kok Sam’s serves an equally excellent nasi dagang and laksam. Forget about your knowledge on laksa as Kak Som will bring you a northern style Kelantanese laksa. If you’re not feeling up to these particular dishes, there’s always the lauk style (rice and dishes) where the food is all set upfront for you to indulge.

Ipoh Hor Fun – Restaurant Pau Kee





Pau Kee’s main dish is Ipoh hor fun, steamed chicken, and prawn wantan but in addition to that, they also have wantan mee, and Ipoh style curry mee (with curry chicken).

The one benefit of them serving all these different dishes is that you can let your imagination run wild and have combos such as wantan mee with curry soup, or dried “wantan mee” but with hor fun instead.

I had my Ipoh Hor Fun soup with Prawn Wanton.
