Cheap Ramadhan Buffet at Restoran Nelayan Gombak

Cheap Ramadhan Buffet at Restoran Nelayan Gombak

Dine, Food Review
Malaysians like a few things in life. One is free stuffs, second is cheap stuffs. That we all can't deny because Malaysians are cheap. But when it comes to buffet especially during Ramadhan month, not many restaurants offers cheap dining. How about having some cheap buffet and steamboat (and grill too) at Restoran Nelayan Gombak? Sounds good? Ok then. Restoran Nelayan Gombak offers affordable buffet dining for their customers this Ramadhan month where you can have some local delicacies as well as steamboat and grill. Yes, grill. I was invited to attend their Ramadhan buffet launch a day before fasting begins. We were introduced to some famous local food, some international food and also their steamboat and grill concept. But I was quite disappointed that we didn't get to sample t
Sanoook – A Fusion of Thai and Japanese Food Like No Other

Sanoook – A Fusion of Thai and Japanese Food Like No Other

Dine, Food Review
It has been a while since I was last invited to a food review event. But knowing that I love food, a blogger friend (part family) of mine, Miera, will hook me up whenever there is a food review event. Well, I can't say no to that. So this time around, I was at Sanoook, a brand new outlet in Pavilion Elite KL. This is their second (or third?) branch in the Klang Valley. And owned by the same company that owns Chakri Palace in KLCC where I was also invited to review their Ramadhan buffet promotion last year. We all might know that Chakri Palace serves Thai food and their food is to me, not bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, I'd give them a solid 8. Sanoook is however similar to Chakri Palace but with a little twist. They still serve Thai food, but with Japanese style of preparing the food and co...
Simple Food That is Cheap and Delicious at D’Wok Cafe Sunway

Simple Food That is Cheap and Delicious at D’Wok Cafe Sunway

Dine, Malay Food
I always have problems finding a good and cheap place to eat any time of the day. May it be lunch or for dinner, deciding where to eat is everyone's dilemma. Don't deny it. It happens to you too. And then you will be asking your friend or spouse who is with you the same question again and again, "Eh...wanna makan where ah?" Now let me narrow down your search criteria a little bit, especially when you're around Sunway, PJ or Subang Jaya area. I came across this little restaurant/cafe in Sunway Mentari recently and the type of foods they serve are simple, cheap and delicious. But their main attraction is the Nasi Kak Wok, a famous rice dish with kuah gulai ayam and fried chicken. That's it. Simple enough? Yes. D'Wok Cafe in Sunway Mentari opened sometime in March 2016. First, let m...

Food Republic – A Collection Of Local Dishes In One Place

Dine, Food Review
Review at Food Republic, Pavilion KL I was invited and had the honour of sampling some of the local delicacies served at Food Republic, Pavilion KL, recently. I sampled about eight types of dishes from four different food stalls at the Food Republic food court. The idea of this review is to give an idea of what you can have for your break-fast in the coming Ramadhan month or for your meal while working in the heart of KL. And here is my review. Before we start, I would like to say that I'm giving an honest review here. So if any of the stall owners or cooks who are reading my review feel a pinch of hurt, take it as an advice to be better and improve the food quality. Also, I'm reviewing the (apparently) best four food stalls in Food Republic Pavilion KL. Mee Jawa Stall I sampled
Love Food Photography? Foodie App Is For You

Love Food Photography? Foodie App Is For You

Android Apps, App Review, Smartphone Photography, Tech & Gadgets
I know there are many foodies out there who love taking photos of their food before munching on. I'm sure they would have a few photo editing apps installed in their phones to enhance the photos making it more presentable. Instagram, VSCO and Snapseed are among the favourites. Now what if you have an app made especially for food photography? Foodie camera app is exactly what you're looking for. I have this app installed on my phone for a few weeks now. I was testing it to see how good the app is. Well, after those few weeks all I can say is...not bad. Don't get me wrong. When I say not bad, I don't mean it's not great. It does have a few advantages over using a photo editing app. All the enhancements are at your disposal on the main camera screen. All you have to do is choose your e
Hidden Quaint Nyonya Restaurant in Bangsar

Hidden Quaint Nyonya Restaurant in Bangsar

Dine, Nyonya Food
I came across a hidden gem recently while I was driving around in Bangsar. A quaint restaurant in a corner along the back alley of Bangsar Utama caught my eyes. From the outside, it look like an old kopitiam. I was curious to know what kind of dishes they serve. It was still early in the morning, right after Bangsar dwellers clocked in for work. During that time it was empty. I told myself that I must check that place out since my tummy was growling begging to be fed. I'm glad I did. This quaint restaurant is relatively new. So it's not so quaint at all. But the setup and deco made the place feel nostalgic. I remember the time when I used to travel with my parents to Taiping or Teluk Intan, stopping by at some old kopitiam. This place feels like that. Nostalgic and old, yet new. ...
Hidden Vegetarian Cafe in KL

Hidden Vegetarian Cafe in KL

Dine, Vegetarian
My title is a little bit off because this is actually a coffee joint that serves vegetarian food. But since I came here for the food, I choose to name the title as "Vegetarian Cafe". This will be a quick post on a good food and cozy place that I recently found in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Nicely hidden within the bustling city just off of Jalan Tun Razak, lies a small (and almost hidden) cafe that serves good vegetarian food. And their coffee is to die for. RGB & The Bean Hive is located on Jalan Damai, off Jalan Ampang near the (now closed) old Al-Rawsha and Al-Andalus arabic restaurants. If you're familiar with the area, then you won't get lost. From the outside, it looks like someone's house so you might wonder whether you should just walk up their front door or not. But...
Thank You Line

Thank You Line

Blog
A few weeks ago, Line (the Japanese chat app similar to WeChat) was giving out free McD vouchers to its users. What they did was giving you a total of 10 days to use the app and each day they will give you a tick. Once you've got all 10 ticks, you will receive the RM10 McD voucher. Well, although it's not much but hey, it's not easy to get someone to give you RM10 voucher just like that. So, thank you, Line+ Corporation. Also not forgetting, I got a free sundae cone for the first tick, and a free Chatime drink for the 5th tick. Both were redeemed almost immediately. Yep...they send it straight to my house via snail mail. Well...it's better than nothing. I am grateful that I receive something free once in a while. Doesn't happen often.
Ohsem Makan: Sesame Chicken Rice at Gerai Ah Kow

Ohsem Makan: Sesame Chicken Rice at Gerai Ah Kow

Blog, Chinese Food, Dine
It has been a very long time since I last blog about food. As what my description for this blog said, I love photography and anything about technology & gadgets...and of course food too. I remember those days when I first started blogging (back in 2004-2005), most of my blog entries are about places I've been to and where I go for makan. Lately since I started blogging again after 2-3 years of silence, it has been more about technology and gadgets. Of course I don't want to abandon my love for food altogether. So basically now I'm back at it. My latest addition for my food blog is what I think is the BEST fried chicken I have ever tasted in my life...ever. Uncle Lim's fried chicken in Subang Jaya now falls to the second spot after this awesome goodness. Do you like chicken ric...
Tweetup @ Al-Rawsha, KL

Tweetup @ Al-Rawsha, KL

Blog, Dine, Middle Eastern Food
I got a message from a Twitter friend who was planning to have a little Tweetup last night for dinner and I thought, why not, I should go. At first I told her that I could not go, so it’s an unconfirmed thing for me. I told Ron about it, and he also said that he could not make it due to his Salsa class that starts at almost the same time as the Tweetup. So I told @xmellyssax and @syazaliyana that I’m still not confirmed for the lil gathering. Then around 8pm, Ron called me that he has cancelled his class and that he is able to make it to the Tweetup. So I told him to pick me up quickly and rush over to Al-Rawsha Restaurant, KL. Boy, I’m so glad that we went for the Tweetup. From left: @hadramie, @xmellyssax, @icednyior, @kazwan (me), @syazaliyana, @altimet, @ronny1976, @bat, @tek
