Another Ayam Kampung at Restoran Bandariya, Jalan Tun HS Lee, Kuala Lumpur

Image
Ayam Kampung oh Ayam Kampung. I think this is my 3rd article about Ayam Kampung place in my blog. The first one was at Ayam Kampung Publika, then Restoran Ayam Kampung Istana and this time is Restoran Ayam Kampung Bandariya. Out from this 3 places, I still considered that Ayam Kampung Publika is on the first place in terms of environment, friendliness, service and food taste.




This Restorant Ayam Kampung Bandariya is located at Jalan Tun HS Lee in the heart of Kuala Lumpur city centre. The restaurant is fully air-conditioned with 2 floor fo dining area. My manager recommended me this place and I can see that this is one of the lunchie spot for the bankers and other office workers nearby.

Since I arrived here a bit late, I just get my fried Ayam Kampung and also Javanese sambal on the side. Note: Javanese sambal is consisted of blended dry chili, tamarind, lots of groundnut, anchovies and tempe. Since I do have my own benchmark for Ayam Kampung meal, this Ayam Kampung was a bit failed …

Restoran Ayam Kampung Istana, Kota Damansara

Image
Me and my manager do have same ambition to open a Ayam Kampung (Village Chicken) restaurant. But start from now, we always take advantage from our lunch time to try out Ayam Kampung restaurant in town and figuring out their good and bad part. Well, this is some kind of our case study before we design our future Ayam Kampung Restaurant.


This Restoran Ayam Kampung Istana is located at Kota Damansara (I have to double check the name later). It is located at the Strand Mall area or in another word, behind a CIMB Bank Kota Damansara. 
We always will put Che Mat Restaurant Ayam Kampung (Ayam Kampung Publika) in Damansara Perdana as the best benchmark whenever we try out a new place. To compare this place with Che Mat's, I can say the interior and varieties of food is an upgrading version of Che Mat. But, in terms of food quality, taste and environment, we still prefer to go to Che Mat (After our first lunch here). 


I won't say much about this place. But honestly, this restaurant is…

Open Air Dinner Place at Jalan Helang 1, Puchong Jaya

Image
My housemate Christopher missed place his medical certificates for medical leave submission to his company and we went to the clinic again to get a copy of that. Then, we discovered that there is a open space stall area located just at the opposite site of the clinic which is located at Jalan Helang 1, nearby Apartment Sri Tanjung, Puchong Jaya.





This place maybe not as crowded and as big as the one that we always went to at behind the Court Mammoth Puchong Jaya, but the foods never disappoint us. Since, Christopher is still in the midst of recovering and cannot eat spicy food, we ordered 2 serving of Fish Porridge and also a serving of non spicy Fried Char Kuey Teow.




I love the big portion of the Fish Porridge and the taste is not bad actually. There are chunk of fish meat inside and the rice porridge was very smooth. This is truly a simple meal and yet very tasty. The same with the Char Kuey Teow. Very tasty, not oily and rich with flavours. I think, if we ask it a bit spicy maybe c…

Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant, Jalan Besar, Singapore

Image
The receipt from having supper at this Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant was dated on 9th November 2014. In another word, i had kept this for quiet sometimes to share about this Dim Sum place in Singapore.



When my mate, Christopher arrive to Singapore from KL a bit late from schedule, I decided to go to this restaurant to try out their Dim Sum. This restaurant is open from Monday to Sunday and close on Tuesday night. The best part is, its open from 6.00pm daily and close at 6.00am (what on earth!)
I wish I could list out every names of the Dim Sum that we had ordered, but unfortunately it was written in Chinese on the bill. So, herewith I attached the bill and all the photos of the Dim Sum.







One interesting question, will we come again to Swee Choon Tim Sum Restaurant, we are sorry because our answer will be no. I think some of the Dim Sum do have to much flour instead of the filling and not every Dim Sum have a matching taste with my taste bud.
However, the restaurant system is good. Customer…

Thai Dinner at Chiang Rai Style Restaurant, Puchong Jaya

Image
Hello everyone. Here is another 'Makan' place sharing from me and my housemate Christopher. Actually, before we went to this place, we were having our dinner at a new restaurant nearby IOI Boulevard Puchong but a bit disappointed with the portion size and the price too. I will share about that sometimes later in my other blog posting. 



So, this place is located in Puchong Jaya, which some of our readers know that we are living here too. So, when walking home, we decided to fill some space in our stomach by trying out this Thai restaurant called, Chiang Rai Style Restaurant. The restaurant is located at No.12-1A Jalan Kenari 18A, Bandar Puchong Jaya, 47100 Puchong, Selangor. 

A very simple restaurant with some typical Thai interior and some Chinese decor too. Without hesitating, we ordered Phad Thai Kuey Teow, Spicy Minced Meat with Egg and Thai Herbs, Pandan Chicken, 2 steamed rice and 2 Herbal Tea. 



Since I used to work with Thai restaurant when living in Vietnam, the authentici…

A Lovely Korean Lunch at Gangnam Station, Laman Seri Shah Alam.

Image
Hi everyone. I am still here. Just lately so busy with my new business, Danial & Chris Home Decor, a unique company selling an affordable window curtains. But for this article, I don't want to talk about my business, but more like to post all pending articles about places that i went since last September (I guess).




This time, I would like to share about a Korean restaurant located in Laman Seri, Shah Alam. The place is is along the Persiaran Sukan or just a distance from the gigantic Shah Alam Stadium. Yeah1 It is Gangnam Station Korean restaurant. 
I was introduced by my manager, Faizal about this restaurant. Our office is in Taman Tun and for me Shah Alam is quiet a distance from our office. But since it is the birthday of Sultan Selangor and a Public Holiday for Selangorian, we do have a easy ride to this restaurant.
Well, lets refer to food menu. The restaurant is specialize in bulgogi (as what I remember). But for that time, we are not looking for Bulgogi, but instead hungry…

No.1 Adam Nasi Lemak, Adam Food Centre, Singapore

Image
Going to Singapore and hungry for authentic Malay breakfast? The place that I want to recommend to you if one of the kind. On my recent working trip to Singapore, I took the first flight to Singapore from KL and this is just a perfect timing for me to enjoy my local breakfast here.

After settle everything at Changi Airport, I straight away took the MRT heading to the Botanic Garden Station. The place name is Adam Food Centre and it is located just a walking distance from the Botanic Garden MRT station.



This time, I would like to zoom at No.1 Adam Nasi Lemak at this food centre. Some say this is one of the best nasi lemak in town and to see people are queuing for their serving of nasi lemak might prove that my assumption is right.





So, for today I decided to try out their Sutra Nasi Lemak with price $4.50. The nasi lemak is consisted of sambal, fried chicken, otak-otak on the side, fried anchovies, peanut and chunk of sausages. Maybe this kind serving is normal for some people, but for me…

Article contributed by: Christopher Lim Food Category: Non-halal
It was a beautiful afternoon and I was wondering around Setia Walk until we discovered that the Shanghai floor at the other block has been opened. Well, I can't recall the exact name, but this eating out place is located at the other block of Setiawalk which is 1 floor up from the Celebrity Fitness and one floor below the TGV Cinema.




Basically, there are so many stall or traditional concepts of restaurants here. Most of the restaurant here serve Chinese foods and the food price is very reasonable. So, that day I decided to go to this Grand Shanghai Claypot Restaurant to try their Shanghaineese foods there. 

So, I ordered a set of Pork Ribs with Sweet Sauce and my friend ordered a set of Crispy Lemon Chicken. Each set come with clear soup on the side, steam rice and salad. For drink, we ordered Luo Han Guo ice which is really good to cool ourselves. 





How was the food? I am very family with local Chinese food and this is my…

Fruits Shopping at Justfruit, IOI Boulevard, Puchong

Image
If previously I shared with you about the fruit store located in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail (TTDI), this time i will share with you about another place located nearby my house in Puchong which called as Justfruit.

The exact location is at the IOI Boulevard Puchong, or next to the Ah Wing Noodle Restaurant here. First of all, I love the room temperature here. Really chill and good a fruit store. In here, the store mostly sell a major selection of imported fruits such as various kind and size of apple, grape, kiwi, strawberries and many other kind of berries too (blackberry, rasberry and blueberry). I can say, you name it and they will have it. 






In terms of pricing, still very reasonable. Maybe a bit expensive compared to AEON and Tesco, but in here, they offer you a premium quality of fruits and it can be kept longer than fruits in normal stall.
In addition,this fruit shop also sell many kind of fresh fruit pun with price RM7 for one and RM13 for 2 cups. 
If I need to choose, this Justfruit Shop…

Steam Boat Dinner at Coco Steamboat, Jalan Kenari, Puchong Jaya

Image
I love steamboat. This Coco Steamboat Restaurant is just walking distance from my house in Puchong. The restaurant is open every night and you can see almost every table full with customer from 7pm until 10pm. 



In my mind, when you go to a steamboat restaurant, you will need to spend a lot of money for the foods. But in this Coca Steamboat, they do have set for 2 person and I can say this set is actually a big one. 
Like this one, it consisted of noodle, vegetable, seafood, tofu and some kind of processed food. Customer also can choose to be served with clear soup or spicy soup. Overall, we enjoyed the steamboat here. The soup is nice and the service is quiet fast. 






Other than the set that I mentioned earlier, we also ordered side dish to add on to our steamboat pot. There are varieties of seafood, fishballs and tofu for you to choose But this time, I only choose mussels and seriously, I love it! 
Will we come back here. The answer is yes (in case we feel lazy to cook at home).
