Cheese Baked Rice – Chatterbox @ Bangsar Village I, Bangsar Baru

Chatterbox hk in Bangsar Village I in Bangsar Baru is yet another HK "char chan teng" and has been established since Bangsar Village I was opened way back in 2005. Like other "char chan teng" which serves Hong Kong food, Chatterbox also serves Cheese Baked Rice among others.

Chatterbox's Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop in Italian Red Sauce
Chatterbox’s Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop in Italian Red Sauce

Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop in Italian Red Sauce is one of the best items on the menu. The chicken meat is tender and yet fresh while the rice is cooked to perfection.

Chatterbox's Cheese Baked Rice with Pork Chop in Italian Red Sauce
Chatterbox’s Cheese Baked Rice with Pork Chop in Italian Red Sauce

Cheese Baked Rice with Pork Chop in Italian Red Sauce is as good as the Chicken Chop, even the pork meat is so tender, it almost tastes like chicken!

Chatterbox's Ying Yong (Cold)
Chatterbox’s Ying Yong (Cold)

Ying Yong (Cold) tastes almost similar like other kopitiam.

Chatterbox's Lemon Tea (Hot)
Chatterbox’s Lemon Tea (Hot)

Lemon Tea (Hot) is hot but refreshing.

One thing that would bring me here again is probably the difference between Chatterbox and the other kopitiam — it is much peaceful and quiet dining in Chatterbox compared to similar type of "char chan teng". Others have ambiance almost like a night market.

Price

  • Cheese Baked Rice with Chicken Chop in Italian Red Sauce – RM 13.90
  • Cheese Baked Rice with Pork Chop in Italian Red Sauce – RM 13.90
  • Ying Yong (Cold) – RM 3.80

Noodles, Dim Sum and White Coffee – Chatter Kopitiam @ Kinta City, Ipoh

Chatter Kopitiam is a kopitiam located in Kinta City, Ipoh. It may locate inside a shopping mall but the price is still lower than most kopitiams in Klang Valley.

Chatter Kopitiam's Dry Curry Noodle
Chatter Kopitiam’s Dry Curry Noodle

Dry Curry Noodle is different from those you get elsewhere. The curry is thick, there are not much beansprouts while the mint leaves do add some fragrant to the dish, it is just not good enough.

Chatter Kopitiam's Curry Soup Noodle
Chatter Kopitiam’s Curry Soup Noodle

Curry Soup Noodle is almost the same version of the Dry Curry Noodle except it has slightly more curry.

Chatter Kopitiam's Chang Jiang White Coffee (Cold)
Chatter Kopitiam’s Chang Jiang White Coffee (Cold)

Chang Jiang White Coffee is unique and is better than most white coffee found in Klang Valley, but I can say it’s not the best white coffee as it still lacks somewhat something.

Chatter Kopitiam's Chocolate (Hot)
Chatter Kopitiam’s Chocolate (Hot)

Chocolate (Hot) tastes almost like Milo and perhaps is the biggest rip-off.

Chatter Kopitiam's Chicken Cha Siew Pao

Chatter Kopitiam’s Chicken Cha Siew Pao

Chicken Cha Siew Pao is probably the best item on the menu and you should not miss this one if you happen to be in Kinta City. At RM 1.80, it may be slightly more expensive than the ordinary siew pao in the real Chinese kopitiam, but it is worth every cent. The Chicken Cha Siew is so tender, it almost taste like pork. By the way, this kopitiam serves halal food.

Price

  • Dry Curry Noodle – RM 5.20
  • Soup Curry Noodle – RM 5.20
  • Chang Jiang White Coffee (Cold) – RM 2.00
  • Chocolate (Hot) – RM 3.50

Special Coffee – Sin Min Hong Coffee Shop @ Butterworth

When it comes to good coffee, Northern Malaysia never lacks it. Sin Min Hong Coffee Shop in Butterworth is famous for its special coffee.

Sin Ming Hong's Special Coffee (Hot)
Sin Ming Hong’s Special Coffee (Hot)

Sin Ming Hong's Special Coffee (Cold)
Sin Ming Hong’s Special Coffee (Cold)

Special Coffee looks special and different from the ordinary coffee in kopitiam. However, I feel it tastes almost the same like the ordinary coffee and fail to taste any difference in it.

Sin Ming Hong's Babyshake
Sin Ming Hong’s Babyshake

Babyshake is nevertheless a special drink which consists of milk tea and a small amount of coffee powder. There is a strong flowery taste in it as well.

Sin Ming Hong's Egg on Toast
Sin Ming Hong’s Egg on Toast

Egg on Toast consists of half-boiled eggs and toasts except the eggs are on the toast as the name has suggested. Special but I still prefer to eat them separately. What about you?

  • Special Coffee (Cold) – RM 1.60

Assam Laksa & Mee Rebus – Meals Station @ Wisma UOA II

Recently, Meals Station has added several new items on its menu.

Meals Station's Assam Laksa
Meals Station’s Assam Laksa

Assam Laksa is one of the new items in Meals Station. The Assam Laksa in Meals Station is satisfying even though at RM 7.90, it seems a little too pricy.

Meals Station's Mee Rebus
Meals Station’s Mee Rebus

Mee Rebus, meanwhile, is not bad but definitely not among the best items on the menu. If you love noodles, I would still recommend Meals Station’s Curry Chicken Noodles.

Meals Station's Orange Juice
Meals Station’s Orange Juice

Fresh Orange Juice surely quenches the thirst on a hot afternoon, but I think this juice needs more ice cubes.

Price

  • Assam Laksa – RM 7.90
  • Mee Rebus – RM 6.90
  • Fresh Fruit Juice, Orange – RM 3.50

OLDTOWN Curry Mee
OLDTOWN Curry Mee

OLDTOWN Curry Mee is one of its signature dish and is a must try. At RM6.20, it is quite a steal.

OLDTOWN French Toast
OLDTOWN French Toast

OLDTOWN French Toast is nevertheless one of the best French toasts. It’s fresh and crispy and what’s more, it contains peanut butter in between the slices. Furthermore, you can add additional honey syrup as much as you like! At RM3.80, you won’t find a better one at this price anywhere in KL.

Meals Station's French Toast
Meals Station’s French Toast

French Toast in Meals Station is crispy and appetizing even though not good enough to satisfy one’s hunger.

Meals Station's Black Currant White Coffee

HK ‘Dry Style’ Hand Made Noodles – Wong Kok Char Chan Teng @ Pavilion KL

Wong Kok Char Chan Teng has a variety of delicious food and this is the fourth time I’m writing about Wong Kok Char Chan Teng @ Pavilion KL and there is a good reason for this.

HK 'Dry Style' Hand Made Noodles with Honey Chicken
HK ‘Dry Style’ Hand Made Noodles with Honey Chicken

HK ‘Dry Style’ Hand Made Noodles with Honey Chicken as the name says is hand made noodles which looks a lot like the Fried H.K. Stred Noodles I reviewed earlier except it’s a lot thicker. The honey chicken is sweet and its juicy honey flavor makes the noodles not so "dry". If you’re a noodle lover, you’ll definitely love this one.

Honeydew Blueberry Float
Honeydew Blueberry Float

Honeydew Blueberry Float is sweet and since both honeydew and blueberry lean more towards the sweet taste, this drink is surely one of the sweetest ever mixed of drinks. With a scoop of vanilla ice-cream, this drink is heavenly delicious.

Price

  • HK ‘Dry Style’ Hand Made Noodle with Honey Chicken – RM 8.90
  • Honeydew Blueberry Float – RM 7.50

3JC in Soup, Kuey Teow

3JC in Soup, Kuey Teow is delicious with the right flavor and the meatballs are simply tantalizing.

3JC in Curry, Kuey Teow
3JC in Curry, Kuey Teow

3JC in Curry, Kuey Teow is also satisfying, every part of it. Like 3JC in Soup and its other dishes, 3JC holds on to its five fundamental factors which include Freshness, Feeling, Taste, Nutritious and Presentation. If you look at the pictures, you will know what I mean.

3JC's Coffee (Cold) and Ice Honey Lemon Tea
3JC’s Coffee (Cold) and Ice Honey Lemon Tea

Madam Wong’s Buttermilk Sauce Chicken with Rice

Buttermilk Sauce Chicken with Rice is a delightful, at least, it’s better than the Crispy Buttermilk Granules Chicken with Rice.

Madam Wong's Kung Po Chicken with Rice
Madam Wong’s Kung Po Chicken with Rice

Kung Po Chicken with Rice is not too bad either.

Mee Siam & Lonton – Toast Box, Food Republic @ Pavilion KL

Toast Box is a kopitiam comparable to the likes of Daily Express, Hometown Kopitiam and Kluang Station. After the success of Toast Box in Mid Valley, which is owned by BreadTalk, a Singapore-based bakery, Toast Box branches out in Pavilion KL as well.

Toast Box @ Pavilion KL
Toast Box @ Pavilion KL

Toast Box @ Pavilion KL looks better than the one in Mid Valley Megamall but it’s located within the crowded food court, Food Republic.

Toast Box's Mee Siam Soup
Toast Box’s Mee Siam Soup

Mee Siam Soup is quite up to the par except of course, it’s in soup. Despite that, it still tastes better than Kluang Station’s Mee Siam.

Toast Box's Lonton

Meanwhile, Lonton is slightly below the average expected standard with nothing to shout about.
