Penang Nyonya @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Penang Nyonya as the name says serves Penang Nyonya food. Located on the first floor in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre, Penang Nyonya is yet another restaurants serving Penang food ala Nyonya style. There is another Nyonya restaurant called “Nyonya Colors” on the same row.

Penang Nyonya's Spring Rolls
Penang Nyonya’s Spring Rolls

Spring Rolls or “Popiah” in Malay, is usually fried to perfection and is a great delicacy. Spring Rolls at Penang Nyonya is no difference — it is crispy, delicious and served hot albeit a little oily.

Penang Nyonya's Nyonya Nasi Lemak
Penang Nyonya’s Nyonya Nasi Lemak

Chicken Beef Set consists of a plate of rice (selection of either Briyani or Lemak), chicken or beef dishes, appetizer, dessert and a drink. Surprisingly, my selection of Lemak rice ends up the same as what my partner ordered — Nyonya Nasi Lemak and Penang Chicken Curry. I have to say the Nyonya Nasi Lemak is a disappointment. There is really nothing to shout about.

Penang Nyonya's Penang Curry Chicken
Penang Nyonya’s Penang Curry Chicken

Penang Curry Chicken is quite mediocre. It’s oily, the curry does not have enough santan and flavor and doesn’t seem to look appetizing.

Penang Nyonya's Cendol
Penang Nyonya’s Cendol

Cendol is perhaps the worst of the worst item on the menu. First off, the cendol does not come with red beans. This is the first time I eat cendol without red beans and I must say it is not very pleasing at all. There are tonnes of places that serve better cendol than here. In fact, all of them have better cendol and it is quite a disappointment to know Klang has a place which serves Penang Nyonya food has one of the worst cendol in the country, knowing that Klang also has one of the best cendols in Malaysia.

Overall, Penang Nyonya would be the last place on earth we would go to, ever. There are plenty of other restaurants in AEON Bukit Tinggi which serve better food at a better fare, why bother coming here?

Price

  • Chicken Beef Set (Penang Chicken Curry, Lemak Rice, Cendol, Iced Lemon Tea, Spring Rolls) – RM 15.90
  • Nyonya Nasi Lemak – RM 7.90

Bah Kut Teh @ Restoran Telok Pulai Bah Kut Teh

Teluk Pulai is well-known for its bah kut teh and Restoran Teluk Pulai Bah Kut Teh is one of the bah kut teh restaurants in Teluk Pulai.

Restoran Telok Pulai Bah Kut Teh's Bah Kut Teh
Restoran Telok Pulai Bah Kut Teh’s Bah Kut Teh

In bah kut teh restaurants, the bah kut teh is usually served in claypot unless it is the dry version.

Restoran Telok Pulai serves Klang’s famous bah kut teh like the other bah kut teh’s restaurants in Klang. The only difference in this place is that it is quite pricey. RM 22.50 for two person and we didn’t even order any Chinese tea.

Overall, it is not the best place in town to try out for bah kut teh, unless the other bah kut teh restaurants in Klang are all closed and you’re from other towns and are desperate to try out Klang’s original bah kut teh.

Price

  • Claypot Bah Kut Teh + Yu Tiao for 2 person – RM 22.50

Kim Gary Restaurant @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Kim Gary Restaurant is one of the few restaurants besides Oldtown White Coffee that is usually packed with patrons in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre.

Kim Gary's Fried Pork Chop with Shanghai Style Vegetable Rice
Kim Gary’s Fried Pork Chop with Shanghai Style Vegetable Rice

Kim Gary Restaurant’s Fried Pork Chop with Shanghai Style Vegetable Rice served with Shanghai Style Soya Sauce is quite hearty and is one of the few dishes that is not oily. The fried pork chop is succulent and it is surprisingly satisfying.

Kim Gary's Hot and Spicy Noodles with Pork Chop in "Typhoon Shelter" Style
Kim Gary’s Hot and Spicy Noodles with Pork Chop in "Typhoon Shelter" Style

Hot and Spicy Noodles with Pork Chop in "Typhoon Shelter" Style is served in a huge bowl like in most Japanese restaurants. However, the noodles portion is extremely small compared to the bean sprouts, which occupied half the bowl. The curry is indeed spicy but there’s really nothing special about this.

Kim Gary's Coffee in Hong Kong Style (Cold)
Kim Gary’s Coffee in Hong Kong Style (Cold)

Coffee in Hong Kong Style (Cold) is quite mediocre compared to the coffee joints. Even though it’s only RM 2.80, I would prefer Oldtown White Coffee anytime. Furthermore, OLDTOWN White Coffee is only RM 3.20.

Kim Gary's Coffee in Hong Kong Style (Hot)

The same applies to Coffee in Hong Kong Style (Hot).

Curry Chicken Sticky Rice – Oldtown White Coffee @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Oldtown White Coffee has always been my favorite due to its affordable price compared to trendy cafés. Somehow Oldtown White Coffee at AEON Bukit Tinggi proved otherwise. Not only the food are slightly pricier, the services is just as bad. It takes nearly 10 minutes to order the food, even then, we didn’t get the menus we have asked for. We just gladly ticked the food we wanted from the order form.

Oldtown White Coffee's Curry Chicken Sticky Rice
Oldtown White Coffee’s Curry Chicken Sticky Rice

Curry Chicken Sticky Rice is quite nice and less oily compared to the glutinous rice in Meals. On the contrary, the curry chicken is quite oily and less satisfying.

Oldtown White Coffee's OLDTOWN Nasi Rendang Chicken
Oldtown White Coffee’s OLDTOWN Nasi Rendang Chicken

As usual, OLDTOWN Nasi Rendang Chicken is up to par as it is one of OLDTOWN’s signature dish. Somehow, it is pricier than the Nasi Rendang Chicken at Bandar Bukit Tinggi. Maybe they have raised their price.

Oldtown White Coffee's Mocha White Coffee (Cold)
Oldtown White Coffee’s Mocha White Coffee (Cold)

Mocha White Coffee is satisfying like most of the white coffee in the café.

Oldtown White Coffee's OLDTOWN White Coffee (Hot)
Oldtown White Coffee’s OLDTOWN White Coffee (Hot)

OLDTOWN White Coffee (Hot) is the original Ipoh Old Town White Coffee and it’s just satiating I could drink this everyday.

Price

  • Curry Chicken Sticky Rice – RM 6.80
  • OLDTOWN Nasi Rendang Chicken – RM 9.50
  • Mocha White Coffee (Cold) – RM 4.80
  • OLDTOWN White Coffee (Hot) – RM 3.20

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant, which is originated from Thailand serves pretty good food and is famous for its gourmet coffee. Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant has opened up four branches in Malaysia and one of them is in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang.

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant's Teriyaki Chicken Sauce
Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant’s Teriyaki Chicken Sauce

Teriyaki Chicken Steak which consists of grilled chicken breast served with Black Canyon’s teriyaki sauce, french fries, potato salad and toast is a wholesome meal, and it is more than satiating. Somehow, it is a bit oily.

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant's Chicken Green Curry Rice
Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant’s Chicken Green Curry Rice

Chicken Green Curry Rice is quite special. It’s not the kind of fried rice you normally have. Instead, the rice is stir-fried with a special green curry sauce and chicken. The Chicken Green Curry Rice is appetizing but the boiled egg that comes together is cold, straight from the refrigerator.

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant's Mexican Iced Coffee
Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant’s Mexican Iced Coffee

Mexican Iced Coffee is the type of coffee pure gourmet coffee lover would love. With nutty soft taste, the drink is also refreshing from the cooling ice and Kahlua Syrup. It is said that Mexican iced coffee is an excellent drink, especially after dinner as it aids digestion.

Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant's Blackpuccino
Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant’s Blackpuccino

Blackpuccino, unlike the name, is not dark cappuccino but is an Espresso drink. It is a frozen blended coffee topped with creamy milk. It is absolutely tantalizing and a delicious drink.

Overall, the food at Black Canyon Coffee Restaurant is above the par, the restaurant has a great ambiance and there is a wide variety of food to choose from. The coffee is Black Canyon’s specialities and you’ll also have trouble choosing the drink from the menu because Black Canyon has a whole menu just for coffee and tea.

Price

  • Teriyaki Chicken Steak – RM 15.90
  • Chicken Green Curry Rice – RM 8.90
  • Mexican Iced Coffee – RM 8.50
  • Blackpuccino – RM 8.95

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
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.

Price

  • Hot Rods Combo (2 Hot Rods, 1 (R) Lipton Iced Lemon Tea, 1 (R) Fun Fries) – RM 7.95
  • Hot Rods A La Carte (2 Hot Rods) – RM 3.95

Famous Cendol – Cendol Klang @ Jalan Nanas, Klang

Cendol Klang is famous for its cendol. Back in its heydays, it was only a cart stall just right on the roadside of the shoplot it is located currently.

Cendol Klang's Cendol Biasa
Cendol Klang’s Cendol Biasa

Cendol Klang’s Cendol Biasa though looks ordinary is delicious and it is irresistible. Somehow, the "makan" version is smaller and 30 cent cheaper than the "bungkus (take-away)" version. Besides the Original flavor, Cendol Klang also has many other flavors including those with ice-cream.

Price

  • Cendol Biasa (Makan) – RM 1.50
  • Cendol Biasa (Bungkus) – RM 1.80

Trendy Food – Leo’s Cafe @ Bandar Bukit Tinggi

Leo’s Cafe is innovative by serving the current food trend trying to satisfy many people’s taste bud. It is really going places by hiring Amber Chia as their ambassador. Besides serving the current food trend, it also serves coffee, pastry and in-house made Gelato (Italian ice cream).

Leo’s Cafe is located on the corner lot the same row as Bandar Bukit Tinggi’s Oldtown White Coffee. Giant Hypermarket is directly opposite Leo’s Cafe.

Leo's Cafe Black Pepper Chicken Rice
Leo’s Cafe Black Pepper Chicken Rice

Black Pepper Chicken Rice is not up to the par — the rice is not well-cooked while there is inadequate amount of black pepper sauce.

Leo's Cafe Buttermilk Seafood Yee Mee
Leo’s Cafe Buttermilk Seafood Yee Mee

Buttermilk Seafood Yee Mee is pretty good even though the yee mee is actually Cantonese Yee Mee. However, the number of prawns and crab meats are so limited, it’s like eating plain yee mee.

Leo's Cafe Cucumber Lime Cooler
Leo’s Cafe Cucumber Lime Cooler

Cucumber Lime Cooler is refreshing despite the strong cucumber flavor. The drink and the Buttermilk Seafood Yee Mee comes in a set of RM 9.80 whereas ordering the Yee Mee ala carte is RM 7.80.

Leo's Cafe Hot Lemon Tea
Leo’s Cafe Hot Lemon Tea

Hot Lemon Tea is sweet with strong sense of lemon. Ironically, the tea flavor is nowhere to be found.

Price

  • Buttermilk Seafood Yee Mee + Cucumber Lime Cooler – RM 9.80
  • Black Pepper Chicken Rice – RM 8.80
  • Hot Lemon Tea – RM 3.30

Unpleasant Experience – Dome Cafe @ AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre

Dome Cafe is one of my favorite place as I have mentioned before, especially the Suria KLCC branch. However, Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang truly disappoints.

Our orders arrive quite late despite being one of the first few customers. My dad ordered Spicy Olio Pasta but it only arrived after nearly an hour. By then, my dad has already lost his patience and left the restaurant. I do not understand why it needs to take an hour to prepare a plate of pasta and I do not know why Dome does not practice first-come-first-served basis. Shortage of staff should never be an excuse. The staff should have nicely explain the lengthy duration they need to prepare the pasta instead of making the customers wait. Perhaps, Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang has never experienced this high turnout of customers on regular days. What’s worse, it didn’t even has a restaurant manager.

Worst of all, it was a dinner my sister has planned to treat the family for mom’s 50th birthday — which in the end, turned out as one of the most dismal experiences I ever had. We vowed not to ever return to Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre.

Anyways, below are my review of the food we had.

Dome's Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta
Dome’s Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta

Dome’s Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta is the first dish to arrive. It is good enough, at least, my mom and sister manage to finish them.

Dome's Grilled Chicken Turmeric
Dome’s Grilled Chicken Turmeric

Meanwhile, Dome’s Grilled Chicken in Creamy Turmeric Sauce is quite blatant. Despite the chicken being marinated with herbs and the so-called creamy turmeric sauce, I found the dish quite blatant and almost tasteless. Maybe the chef did not put his mind to the dish when preparing it.

Please don’t bother to visit Dome Cafe in AEON Bukit Tinggi Klang. There are many other choices available in AEON Bukit Tinggi Shopping Centre in Klang.

Price

  • Spicy Chicken Mushroom Pasta – RM 21.00
  • Grilled Chicken in Creamy Turmeric Sauce – RM 23.00
  • Gourmet Chicken Pie – RM 21.00

Fried Pork Ribs (Paikut) – Restoran Peng Heong Hakka Paikut @ Klang

Restoran Peng Heong Hakka Paikut in Klang is quite popular with its paikut (pork ribs). Even Ho Chak! once featured this restaurant.

Peng Heong's Famous Pai Kut or Fried Pork Ribs
Peng Heong’s Famous Pai Kut or Fried Pork Ribs

Peng Heong’s Famous Pai Kut (Fried Pork Ribs) is the talk of the town and is indeed delicious. The pork ribs are fried twice to ensure the crispiness and it even tastes like chicken. It’s aromatic and one of the best fried pork ribs I have ever tried.

Peng Heong's Bean Sprouts
Peng Heong’s Bean Sprouts

Peng Heong’s Bean Sprouts is aromatic and crispy too, just like the pork ribs.

For four plates of rice with two additional bowls of rice, two plates of fried pork ribs, a plate of bean sprouts and a bottle of soya bean, it costs only RM 31, good enough for four person.

Price

  • Fried Pork Ribs – RM 6 – RM 20
  • Bean Sprouts – RM 6 – RM 8
  • Soya Bean – RM 2
