Nasi Lemak – Bumbung Nasi Lemak


The sunken kitchen under the roof(bumbung)


The alley


The Nasi Lemak

Bumbung is located in the alley right beside S.E.A Park Maybank  The alley is lighted up with fluorescent light and surprisingly there’s no weirdie smell and its very clean.

All Malaysian should know what is Nasi Lemak and this place is famous for it.

The sambal is not spicy and a little sweet in it, suitable for those who don’t like spicy. The egg they prepared is ”Mata Kerbau” sunny side up egg instead of hard boiled egg. Finally, the fried chicken, fried till golden brown, crispy at the outside, juicy in the inside, a lot spices flavor in it. Last but not least, served hot on a plate with a piece of banana leave to enhance the flavor of the rice and a little bit of cucumber slices, peanuts & ikan bilis.

Mamak – Restuarant SS2 Murni





This is one of the most happening Mamak restaurant in Klang Valley, caters to hundreds of people every single day and night. Murni has the most extensive and impressive mamak menu in existence from roti biasa to roti Hawaii and origins of Chinese, Malay and Western.

Besides the good food at Murni, they have awesome drinks too!

SS2 Murni Restaurant is one of the favourite hang out place for students around PJ area and in particular the University Malaya students. I know because I was there with one.

Prepare to wait long-long for a place to seat if you come after sunset and parking is horrendous too. I chose to come to eat here just before the lunch crowd arrives. The service is fast and the food portion are huge.  We ate the Nasi Lemak Murni Discovery. It comes with a whole chicken thigh, deliciously flavoured and juicy, accompanied by spicy sambal with petai, cuttlefish and prawn, roasted peanuts and cucumber slices, served with steamed coconut rice. We also ordered the Claypot Loh Shi Fun.

Beef Noodle – Restaurant Soong Kee





The famous Soong Kee Beef Noodles from Jalan Tun HS Lee(Jalan Silang), KL has opened a branch in SS2. This place is famous for their dry version of beef noodles but I prefer the soupy type. The broth is just nice and not so overpowering with the tenderness of the beef slices and the springy beef balls.

My side order was a plate of soft beef tendon which was just awesome and practically melts in your mouth. My kind of food!

South Indian Cuisine – Sri Grand City Restaurant




Authentic South Indian cuisine.

A banana leaf loaded with vegetables, curries, achar,papadam and fluffy white rice is probably the epitome of a satisfying meal.

“To me, it has to have a well-cooked rice, crunchy pappadam, fish curry and fried bitter gourd.”

To me the meal is not exactly cheap but it was quite good.

Sarawak Noodles – SRK Noodles House




Most customers prefer their famous kolo mee but this place that specialises in all kinds of Sarawak noodles definitely has my vote for serving one of the best kway chap in the Klang Valley. Slurp down the addictive dark brown broth packed with flavour that is sprinkled with shallot crisps for extra umami. A bowl is packed with innards like intestines, heart and ear, thinly-sliced pork belly, all chopped into bite-sized pieces.  Even the broad rice noodles are excellent with an unbeatable silky smooth texture. The bowl of noodles is also served at the perfect piping hot temperature for you to slurp it all down without feeling that it’s too rich-tasting.

Pork – Kafe Crack Pork



Siew Yoke




The Kafe if only half a lot of a shop so the place is actually very small and cozy. Nice actually when you can really interact with the staffs/owners easily. Do not expect a big list of items in the menu because they only served nothing but pork. They have the Siew Yoke and Porchetta as a dish itself or with Sandwich and Man Tao.

Because the portion was big we ordered one Sandwich with Siew Yoke – bristling with Oriental flavours, with pickled vegetables, cucumber, cili padi, honey mustard & coriander, encased in a crispy-fresh baguette.

The taste was unbelievably great. Something unique and awesome.

Canteen – Restoran Rail Canteen






Whenever I’m in Kluang in Johor I will never fail to step into the Kluang Railway Station’s Canteen for breakfast. Truly good local food.

Great that now they have one outlet opened in Selangor which I can frequent for their delightful Coffee, Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah with 5 types of Sambal to choose from and also the Mutton Rendang with bread.

Claypot Rice – Restoran Choong Kee Kampar



Was looking for a place to have lunch and happened to see this restaurant and without hesitation we walked into it and ordered the Claypot Chicken Rice with add on Salted Fish and Chinese  Sausage.

The whole thing was so good not so wet and not so dry and very aromatic with all the combination of ingredients.

Kopitiam – Chuan Lee Restaurant



The extremely rude and moody Char Kueh Teow seller. My friend had to repeat his order a couple of times before he acknowledge the order.


I was impressed with the varieties of food sold here. The home made Yong Tau Foo/Chee Cheong Fun and many more items were sold in this stall and in fact too many for us to choose from. Here we have to carry our own food and utensils. Not many Nasi Lemak stalls sells Pork Rendang but this stall here sells Wild Boar Rendang which is rare. Overall the food here is good but try not to go during the peak hours. Crowded!
