Ying Ker Lou 迎客楼 – Pavilion

The lettuce with oyster sauce was superb and I thoroughly enjoyed it; the sauce was a perfect companion to the vegetables. The pig intestine with pineapples was another favourite of mine, I did not know they could be married and taste so well together. The drunken chicken did not really work for me though, because…

YE Traditional Dumplings

We’ve been meaning to give this restaurant a long while now. We read about the tantalizing dishes served here and our interest was piqued. However, the major downside to this restaurant was the fact that it was located in the very busy are of Pandan Jaya, and we absolutely abhor traffic jams, especially on a…

Yong Tau Foo @ Yap Hup Kee

Yap Hap Kee (叶合记) in Pudu serves really good Chee Cheong Fun 猪肠粉 & Hakka Yong Tau Fu 酿豆腐. Their CCF is silky smooth and loaded with thick and creamy curry sauce. If you don’t like curry, order their sweet sauce version instead. Yong Tau Fu is also a must order here as the YTF…

Seng Kee China Town

Seng Kee is known for their siu yuk or roast pork in Cantonese. Because of the large Cantonese population in the city, there’s a distinctly Cantonese twist to Chinese cooking in KL. The roast pork at Sang Kee has been caramelized to the extent that it’s blackened. Ignore the sounds of your arteries wailing, these…

PMK Dessert House

PMK at Pudu serves a good variety of tong sui, kuih and snacks. The black sesame paste here has just the right consistency, not too gooey and not too sweet. This place is great for a light meal and snacks. Few of my favorites are the steamed glutinous rice, Taiwanese bowl kuih, woon chai koh, a variety of…

Pau Kee – Jalan Imbi

I tried the curry mee, which was not too bad. While I expected the gravy to be thicker and more robust, this was lighter and sweeter, but creamy from the addition of coconut milk. If you like your curry mee less spicy, you’ll like this. For those who wants the spice level up a notch,…

May King Lam Mee

It’s difficult to wrangle the ‘best lam mee’ title from May King, a ’70s institution along Pudu’s Jalan Yew. Though it’s renovated to look more contemporary, the restaurant still whips up a wicked version of the noodles: yellow mee drenched in gloopy brown sauce, topped with fresh prawns, shredded chicken, bean sprouts and Chinese cabbage….

Macro Polo

Dim Sum in Kuala Lumpur, isn’t limited to just serving breakfast to hungry people. In fact, thanks to Hong Kong’s exposure of dim sum throughout the world, our dim sum has been getting better by the year. Regardless whether it is traditionally made or fusion with some other cuisine – dim sum will always have…

Homemade Teo Chew Chai Kuih

Chai Kueh/ Kuih (Vegetable Dumplings) is a typical Chinese snack. This snack is very popular among the Teochew and Hakka especially the older generation. The skill in making Chai Kueh/ Kuih lies in the skin as to achieve the soft, chewy and translucent-like sheen. There is 3 flavors to choose for the Dumpling. Yam, Vegetable and…

Kedai Kopi Jia Siang (家香生肉面)

Jia Siang 家香生肉面 is definitely one of the best places in KK to sample the famous sang nyuk mien (Sabah pork noodles). It it served two ways: as a noodle soup dish or kon lau (whereby the soup is separated from the noodles which is tossed in aromatic pork oil and soy sauce). Delicious side dishes…
