Malaysia. Truly Asia. After spending two weeks in Malaysia, I’ve decided it is time to explore the delicacies that this country has to offer, well according to me of course. So here it goes.
Name: Rakuzen Japanese Restaurant
Where: Level 1, 9, Jalan SS 12/1, 47500 Subang Jaya Selangor Malaysia
They serve high quality Japanese food with reasonable prices. Their set meal called the Rakuzen bento is valued for money because there are many varieties in that one. There is also another dish that involves your own cooking of the meat. Their soft shell crab sushi is really good as well. All I can say is I’ve tried most of the menu and they have never failed to satisfy a hungry Calvin. Book to avoid dissapointment.
Name: Izumi Japanese Restaurant
Address: Level 2, Eastin Hotel, 16/11, Jalan Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor 46350 Malaysia
This one has good Japanese buffet. I’m not sure how the pricing is and when do they serve the buffets for this one but I know that they serve pretty good Japanese food as well. I must point out that they provide excellent services when I was there as well. This is convenient for you because it is not so far away from your place. The chef is quite mysterious in his own ways. One of the waiters pointed out that he doesn’t even let his waiters enter the kitchen at all. A place to consider as well. Book to avoid dissapointment
Name: Living Food Restaurant
Address: Next to Malaya Optical 71 JaIan SS21/37, Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya, 47400, Selangor
They serve Lam Mee. One of my favourite places. Their fish balls and foo chok are very nice and they are popular for their lam mee. Please take note it is quite pricy.
Name: Fook Kee Restaurant
Address: No 1 1a Jalan Desa 1/5 Desa Aman Puri, Kepong
A MUST place to go if you enjoy eating seafood and crabs. Crabs are cheap. RM 20 for a kilo. Go early in the evening or book to avoid disappointment and the long wait. Two types of crab which is a must try; The Salted Egg Crab and the Cheese Creammy Crab. Highly recommended. Can’t miss it because they will have heaps of people. Suggested time to go is 6 pm.
Address: SS2, at the back of KFC
This is a typical mamak place. A place where people gather around to eat, drink and enjoy fellowship. The number one spot for my church members. Good food although a bit dirty (adds the flavour though!). You won’t miss this place because there will be heaps of people as of 8 pm and later. Some recommendations of food. Clap pot Lou Shu Fan, Hawaiian special, Mee Goreng mamak, Nasi Lemak tambah Ayam goreng, Ayam Special. Drinks – Honey Dew Special, Mango Special, Teh Tarik Kurang manis.
Name: California Pizza Kitchen
An italian place which serves really good pizza and pasta. I know it’s quite ironic to eat Italian food in KL because Perth is better but people like me who are cheap would prefer this place. It is not fantastic but it is surely better than most of them around in KL.
Name: Mum’s Place
Address: Damansara Perdana
A mixture of Portuguese and Malaysian food. A frequent customer there with my family. Worth a try if you like spicy food. Recommended dishes would be the Asam Fish.
8. Name: Restaurant Mosin
Address: Taman Tun Dr Ismail, same row as Pizza Hut, a corner shop.
Morning breakfast would be good here. The usual Roti Canai and the Thosai. Love the Roti Telur and Roti Planta. It is crispy and it is served with curry ayam. Plus, it is cheap, dirt cheap. RM 2.00 or less!
Name: Madam Kwan
Address: 65, Telawi 3, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur
If you intend to have a romantic dinner but would like to stick to Asian cuisine, I would recommend this place. They serve one of the best nasi lemak in KL. The place is classy and a bit pricy but you pay for the atmosphere as well. Not sure how true is this, but most of the waiters are quite sissy. Not that it has anything to do with the food. Just something interesting.
Address: Damansara Perdana
For really good curry puff. Surprisingly, Ikea serves the best. I’ve not found anyone that beats theirs yet. So yes, head down to Ikea for good curry puff and hot dogs!
