Zen by Secret Recipe @ Sooka Sentral

Zen by Secret Recipe is a fusion restaurant and serves both Asian delights as well as Western food. The outlet at Sooka Sentral always seem to be populated with hungry office workers during lunch hours. However, although I find the food slightly more than mediocre, I find one of the waiters there not very friendly. He’s probably having a bad day but he shouldn’t bring it to work.

Most of the pasta available are merely mediocre, and perhaps is not worth the money spent. Spaghetti Carbonara with beef bacon strips may look delightful but it somehow lacks the taste most Carbonara has while the menu mentions Spaghetti Carbonara “with beef bacon”, the dish somehow has more mushrooms than bacon strips. Spaghetti Meatball is somehow more extraordinary with its pasta sauce on the spicier side. Perhaps this is due to the fact Zen is a fusion restaurant, hence, tomato + chili does make sense for a pasta meal. If you crave for pasta, I would recommend Delicious anytime.

Nasi Lemak @ Killiney Kopitiam, Sooka Sentral

Killiney Kopitiam in Sooka Sentral also has a wider array of food to choose from in its menu compared to other Killiney Kopitiam in Malaysia.

Killiney Kopitiam's Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah
Killiney Kopitiam’s Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah

Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah is one of the them. Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah is quite decent and I must say it is even better than the infamous Nasi Lemak Panas Ayam Goreng in Bangsar. The rice is fragrant and the anchovies are crispy while the sambal is slightly on the sweet side rather than being spicy. The fried chicken is perfectly fried, except that it may be a little bit oily.

Price

  • Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah – RM 8.90

Killiney Kopitiam @ Sooka Sentral

Killiney Kopitiam which originates from Singapore has set foot in Malaysia with its Mid Valley branch many years back. Now, it has several branches in Malaysia and one of them is in Sooka Sentral.

Chicken Curry Rice is quite fragrant and delicious and is comparable to Old Town’s Curry Chicken with Sticky Rice though both have different type of rice.

Killiney Kopitiam's Cold Coffee

The Cold Coffee is quite “gao” and is a great drink with any meals. Good enough for a coffee lover like me.

  • Chicken Curry Rice – RM 7.90
  • Coffee (Cold) – RM 2.90

Western Fast Food & Spaghetti @ May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court, Brickfields

If you love western food and you’re looking for bargain, Western Fast Food & Spaghetti is the place to be.

May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court's Spaghetti and Chicken Chop with Black Pepper Sauce

Spaghetti and Chicken Chop with Black Pepper Sauce is quite good. The spaghetti is slightly thinner, just like those you get in Kim Gary while the chicken chop is quite tender and the sauce is delicious. All this for only RM 9.90, it’s quite worth it.

May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court's Spaghetti and Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce

Spaghetti and Chicken Chop with Mushroom Sauce is equally delightful. Be warned though, the meal can be a little heavy for lunch and you may fall doze off on your office desk.

Claypot Chicken Rice @ Brickfields

Claypot Chicken Rice is unanimously one of the popular Chinese cuisines.

Brickfield’s Claypot Chicken Rice

Sadly though, despite the popularity of the Claypot Chicken Rice in Brickfields, the verdict is the rice are quite soaky and not cooked properly while the others — the chicken, the sour fish and the rest are quite mediocre. The "Big" Claypot Chicken Rice is sufficient enough for four person, or two person if you are a big eater.

Certainly, not one of the best claypot chicken rice. If you are looking for claypot, I would strongly suggest B Sentral’s Hot Claypot Briyani Rice even though they are a different thing altogether.

Price

  • Claypot Chicken Rice – RM 6.00 (Small)
  • Claypot Chicken Rice – RM 11.00 (Big)
  • Lo Hong Ko – RM 1.10

Hot Claypot Briyani Rice @ Restoran B’Sentral, Brickfields

Most of us know about briyani rice, most of us also know about claypot rice. Now, add those two together, we get Hot Claypot Briyani Rice. Only available at Restoran B’Sentral in Brickfields, Hot Claypot Briyani Rice comes with the choice of chicken, mutton or seafood.

Restoran B’Sentral’s Hot Claypot Briyani Rice

Hot Claypot Briyani Rice comes with a cup of Churri (onion in yogurt with herbs), which I believe originates from North India. The mutton version tastes so tender it’s almost like eating grilled lamb while the chicken version is surprisingly tender too.

Restoran B'Sentral's Papadum

Restoran B’Sentral also serves crispy and the best papadum I have ever come across.

One claypot serving is extremely large and it is not advisable to have all by yourself especially during a working day lunch hour.

Price

  • Hot Claypot Briyani Rice with Lamb – RM 9.50
  • Hot Claypot Briyani Rice with Chicken- RM 8.50

Uncle Lim’s Fried Kuey Teow @ May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court, Brickfields

Uncle Lim’s Fried Kuey Teow is another addition to the variety of food available in May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court.

Uncle Lim’s Fried Kuey Teow is quite delicious. The ingredients are generous while the kuey teow are fried to perfection. In some places, you’ll see the kuey teow ends up either burnt or uncooked, but the char kuey teow here doesn’t only look good but taste good as well. Definitely top my list for Fried Kuey Teow in Kuala Lumpur, if not the whole Malaysia.

Price

  • Fried Kuey Teow – RM 4.00 (Small), RM 5.00 (Big)

Chee Cheong Fun @ May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court, Brickfields

Besides the popular pork noodles, May Flower Food Court also has a variety array of food, that includes chee cheong fun. Unlike most chee cheong fun, this stall serves different styles of chee cheong fun, which include Ipoh style and the famous Penang style.

May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court’s Ipoh Chee Cheong Fun

Ipoh Style Chee Cheong Fun is quite refreshing and different from the regular Penang chee cheong fun. Instead of having the sweet sauce, Ipoh style uses chili and dried prawns. The verdict? Pretty refreshing and delicious albeit the spicy taste.

Penang Style Chee Cheong Fun is also enjoyable and tasty. Unlike the one at the Gardens, these chee cheong fun only costs RM 3.00 and RM 2.00 for a smaller portion.

I would definitely come here again for the food and the service.

Price

  • Ipoh Style Chee Cheong Fun – RM 2.00 (Small), RM 3.00 (Big)
  • Penang Style Chee Cheong Fun – RM 2.00 (Small), RM 3.00 (Big)

Peter’s Pork Noodles @ May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court, Brickfields

May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court in Brickfields is a food court by day and a seafood restaurant by night. During lunch hour, this place is packed like hell.

May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court's Dry Pork Noodles
May Flower Seafood Restaurant and Food Court’s Dry Pork Noodles

Dry Pork Noodles from Peter’s Pork Noodle is one of the best sellers but after waiting for 15 minutes (because of the orders), I am quite disappointed that the pork noodle is just mediocre. It is still nowhere close to Yit Sieang’s Pork Noodles.

Price

  • Dry/Soup Pork Noodles – RM 4.00 (Small), RM 4.50 (Big), RM 0.50 (Add egg)
