Ah Koong Restaurant

A new food court has reopened on the street opposite school and B came into class one day raving about the new yong tau foo stall and how we all simply had to try it. So the food blogger in me was pretty intrigued and I did. After a bit of research, I realized that the yong tau fu stall has it origins from Johor Bahru, Malaysia where its flagship restaurant is located.  Continue reading

KL: Super Crab Aroma Seafood Restaurant

This my seventh and final post on my eating adventures in Malaysia (2015). Previous posts can be found here.

My last night in KL, I told D that I wanted to eat crabs. Coming from a really health conscious family in Singapore, there’s hardly any opportunity to eat crabs. After all, crabs are meant to be eaten in a group, not individually. D decided to try this new place in PJ which had received some favourable reviews among the food bloggers. We got there around 7pm and were able to get a table pretty quickly. We got two crabs to share – salted egg and buttermilk crab. Continue reading

KL: Kedai Makanan Sinki

This is the sixth post of my eating adventures in Malaysia. Previous posts can be found here.

“I’ll take you to this place which only locals know. Can’t be found on lonely planet….”

True enough, a quick google search revealed that this restaurant has yet to be pinpointed on the numerous commercial websites. Rather, any information found is through the numerous food bloggers who have been sharing their experiences on their various websites. Yay, score one for food blogging!  Continue reading

KL: Shin Kee Beef Noodles

This is the fifth post of my eating adventures in Malaysia (2015). Previous posts can be found here.

When I first came to KL to visit D, this was one of the first few places he brought me to. Sadly though, in my other visits since then, we’ve not been back. This time, I requested to go back again, as I still remembered how awesome the bowl of noodles was (after so many years!) and that became the dinner plan. Apparently, in the evenings, the owners shift location to a stall on Petaling Street, which is where we went for my beef noodles fix. Continue reading

KL: Madam Kwan’s

This is the fourth post of my eating adventures in Malaysia (2015). Previous posts can be found here.

Madam Kwan is like the Violet Oon of Singapore. A very accomplished cook, a person who has dedicated many years to achieving the perfect recipe and has been recognized nationally for her efforts. Similar to Violet Oon, Madam Kwan serves her food in comfortable air conditioned restaurants and such comforts are reflected in the prices. Interestingly, Madam Kwan’s nasi lemak has been recommended as one of Malaysia’s best nasi lemak and she has recently opened a branch in Singapore’s Vivocity.  Continue reading

KL: Just Heavenly Cafe

This is the second post of my food adventures in Malaysia (2015). Previous posts can be found here.

Ended up at Bangsar Shopping Centre as C had some work to do and I just tagged along; didn’t want to just stay in their house the entire day. We finally set down for lunch and since we both didn’t have much preference, we settled for Just Heavenly Cafe, which was conveniently located near the lifts leading up from the carpark. Continue reading

KL: Sek Yuen Restoran

I met D and C when I was working in Budapest as an English teacher (which really seems like a lifetime ago). Being one of the few handful of Malaysians and Singaporeans there, we clicked almost instantly which has since evolved to a pretty strong friendship. Since moving back to Singapore, I’ve gone up to Kuala Lumpur to visit them a few times, from when they were still dating to when they got married and having now expanded their family to include two wonderful kids.  Continue reading
