Nasi Lemak Ayam – Sri Nirwana Maju, Bangsar

Sri Nirwana Maju is famous for its banana leaf rice. Many people didn’t its nasi lemak is just as good. For RM 5.50, you can have a nasi lemak with chicken (choice between Fried Chicken and Masala Chicken).

Fried Carrot Cake – Thye Hong, Food Republic @ Pavilion KL

Thye Hong’s Fried Carrot Cake in Food Republic, Pavilion KL is quite famous. The fried carrot cake is not bad but the fried prawn noodle is a little soggy.

The service is actually quick except there is a staff who is quite slow and very illiterate. She can’t even understand the name of the food people tries to order until the boss has to personally take the order. That’s the result of hiring foreign labors with low pay.

Baked Rice with Pork Chop in twin sauce is quite a steal. The portion is big and both the white and the red sauce taste just as good. If you are not a big-eater, you can actually share this with a friend. Also available is Baked Spaghetti with Pork Chop in twin sauce.

Coffee in H.K. style
Coffee in H.K. style

Coffee in H.K. style is not your “everyday” iced coffee. The coffee, though filled with plenty of ice cubes, taste as good as any gourmet coffee. The only thing is, I wonder why they purposely use a straw with a tiny hole? So we can take longer to sip the coffee to enjoy the real aroma of the coffee? LoL!

Cappucino Coke

KFC Triple XL Burger – KFC @ Pavilion KL

KFC has recently come out with Triple XL Burger, and although it’s not really that huge, 7-inch is like slightly bigger than those 6-inch burgers in Subway. Somehow, it tastes extremely good.

The combo set is quite worth it compared to the RM 6.60 ala carte because you also get the soft drink and a dessert, which is an ice-cream cup (Vanilla Orange).

Penang Food – Gurney Drive @ The Gardens Mid Valley

Gurney Drive is a restaurant in The Gardens, Mid Valley that serves local delicacies from Penang. Don’t be fooled by the descriptions of Gurney Drive, they are food stalls, but it’s a restaurant actually. The gimmick is to trick people into believing the food are cheap since most restaurants in The Gardens serve expensive food.

Amanda Brownies Kukus are simply irresistible. “Kukus” in English means “Steamed”. Though, I am not sure whether the brownies are really steamed. The brownies are baked to perfection, you can store them in the refrigerator for a long time. When you take them out, the brownies will be as fresh as they are just baked!

Amanda Brownies Bakar are just as good as Amanda Brownies Kukus. The only difference is there are some additional toppings on top. Really good stuff.
