KFC Hotrods – KFC @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

KFC Hotrods have been invading our lives, be it through TV Commercial or Newspaper.

KFC’s Hotrods

I have to admit KFC Hotrods is pretty good — the boneless fried chicken is effortless and ready to eat, it’s not as oily and it’s succulent. However, the KFC Hotrods is not as pretty as the advertisement. In fact, the chicken is not nearly as rounded as the one featured in the advertisement.

Worse still, we were made to wait for at least 20 minutes in KFC Aeon Bukit Tinggi. Perhaps, it’s the negligence of the staff because we saw other customers who came after us received their Hotrods before us. This is not the first time, Malaysian restaurant gives us a bad impression — another restaurant in AEON Bukit Tinggi have earlier gave me us really bad experience.

KFC's Nasi Lemak Enak Breakfast
KFC’s Nasi Lemak Enak Breakfast

Nasi Lemak Enak is surprisingly delicious, the only thing missing is peanuts, a nasi lemak can’t do without peanuts. Somehow, its fragrant rice and delicious but spicy sambal make up for it and add on a piece of Original Recipe fried chicken, the meal is perfect.

Price

  • Nasi Lemak Enak (with coffee, tea or orange juice) – RM 5.30
  • Add-on 1 piece of Original Recipe Fried Chicken – RM 2.40

Hakka Restaurant @ Jalan Kia Peng, Kuala Lumpur

Hakka Restaurant, located along Jalan Kia Peng has been a sight most of the KL lites cannot ignore. Hakka Restaurant has been in existence for 43 years with its first branch started in Sungei Wang Plaza.

Hakka Restaurant's Herbal Chicken

The Herbal Chicken is quite succulent and yet pleasant to eat.

Hakka Restaurant's Assam Fish

Assam Fish is delectable — not too sour, not too spicy, just the right taste.

Hakka Restaurant's Tofu

The Tofu is however quite bland and ordinary.

Hakka Restaurant's Sweet & Sour Pork
Hakka Restaurant’s Sweet & Sour Pork

The Sweet & Sour Pork is crispy and quite juicy.

Hakka Restaurant's Vegetable

The Vegetable is surprisingly not too salty despite the existence of the salted duck egg.

Hakka Restaurant's Dessert
Hakka Restaurant’s Dessert

Lastly, the Dessert which consists of mangoes, watermelon and honey dew is fresh and juicy.

Even though the food in Hakka Restaurant is top-rated, somehow it’s still overrated and too pricey. Perhaps, Hakka Restaurant is more suitable for weddings and dinner functions. Otherwise, there are many other Chinese restaurants that are better in every sense.

Price

  • Five dishes and dessert, serving for 10 persons – RM 183.60

Address

Hakka Restaurant,

Noodles – Wagon @ Wisma Cosway

Wagon in Wisma Cosway is not just a pub. It serves some decent food all day long from lunch to dinner.

Wagon's Curry Mee
Wagon’s Curry Mee

Curry Mee is quite satiating and should satisfy most. The only fallback is the price, at RM 8.50, most people would demand more and hence, they will rather feel the noodles still lack something for the price they pay.

Wagon's Prawn Mee
Wagon’s Prawn Mee

Prawn Mee is also decent and is satisfying. Prawn Mee has abundant of slices of chicken and prawns.

Still, this is not the kind of place one would go for its noodles.

Price

  • Curry Mee – RM 8.50
  • Prawn Mee – RM 8.50

Address

Lot G76, Ground Floor, Wisma Cosway, Jalan Raja Chulan,

Nasi Lemak – Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan @ Wisma UOA II

Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan is located inside the food court of Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang.

Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan's Nasi Lemak
Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan’s Nasi Lemak

Nasi Lemak from Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan is not the best-ever nasi lemak but it qualifies as the best within the premise of Wisma UOA II. Don’t even bother to try the nasi lemak from other stalls in the food court, or even the nasi lemak from Meals Station.

The Nasi Lemak is however usually sold-out early in the morning.

Price

  • Nasi Lemak – RM 1.80

Address

Nasi Kandar Kampung Pandan,
