Rojak and Cendol is one dish most Malaysians will definitely know about, be it from a roadside stall, a food truck, a mamak shop, or your typical coffee shop.
Not having any registered brand name is not a problem for this very celebrated and popular Rojak, Cendol and deep fried Malaysian Indian snacks vendors along the main road in SS 15; its very existence is already an icon by itself with customers making a beeline everyday. Offering a no-frills experience of eating by the roadside.
Arguably the best in town, it draws crowds of fans who will wait patiently for their rojak. The rojak biasa is a mix of coconut fritters, crispy prawn fritters, deep fried bean curd, shredded cucumber and yam bean. You can also add sotong, a piece of hard boiled egg or a combination of both items. Since turnover is so high, the crunchy fritters and sliced vegetables are rather fresh.
This Cendol goes about the usual approach with coconut milk, Gula Melaka and shaved ice served in small colourful plastic bowls and packed with the typical ingredients. If you are seeking more bite in your Cendol, the addition of some pulut (sticky coconut rice) will give your Cendol some added texture and a more full-bodied taste.
This Uluntu Vadai is shaped like a mini donut. It’s made with flour and then mixed with finely chopped chilies, onions, ginger, spice and deep fried. Unlike the sweet donuts, this Donut shaped Vadai is both salty with a hint of spiciness.

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.

3 Kopitiams situated back to back in USJ 14 Subang Jaya – Meisek, De Happy Land and Yong Sheng Restaurant.
Our first stop was in Yong Sheng Restaurant where we ordered the Sabah Tuaran Mee. 100% irresistible.
Crispy on the outside yet soft in the inside yellow egg noodles which are twice fried to add crispness to it and for better wok-hei.
Our second stop was Restaurant Meisek.
This restaurant faces the main road and very visible to both sides of the traffic.
If there is a stall anywhere selling Chee Cheong Fun with curry I would immediately order one.
Char Kueh Teow
Sarawak Hakka Mee
Our last stop was De Happy Land Restaurant
This is not fine dining so don’t let this horrifically grotesque, flesh massacred looking and hacked bits of Siew Yoke, Char Siew and pork ribs fool you.
With generous doused of Char Siew sauce the flavor of this combination of meat is exquisite.
There are so many choices of food from this 3 restaurants so will definitely going back there many times to try the rest.

The decoration inside is very European and cozy. You can just stay there for hours. The main chef is from Germany dishing out very authentic European style dishes such as the lamb shank, smoked duck, roast chicken… Reasonably price for European food.
This restaurant definitely warrants a second and third visit! TJ Haus is a great place for family and friends as it’s relatively private with its homey ambiance and great food. Do give them a call to make a reservation if you’re planning to drop by as the restaurant as seats are limited.

We ordered as many variety as possible such as the plain and garlic naan, briyani rice, palaak paneer, papadam with mint chutney, masala tea, chicken tika, sizzling chicken curry, prawn curry achar josh, kirahi, shish kebab and kulfi ice cream. The food was great and will definitely recommend all to try.

A perfect blend of Malaysian and Moghul recipes makes Restaurant Syed Kadir’s Nasi Bukhara a crowd’s favourite. Tasty combination: Restoran Syed’s Chicken Bukhara comes complete with mutton dalcha, hard-boiled egg and acar. The rice has to be fluffy and not soggy, which is why the best rice for briyani is “basmati.”
