    Jom EAT! // Nasi Kandar Hameediyah @ Georgetown, Penang

    The wide array of dishes and the medley of various curries, it’s like a symphony orchestrating in my mouth. Hameediyah Restaurant is the oldest Nasi Kandar restaurant in Malaysia. Established in 1907, it has evolved from a humble Nasi Kandar start-up to a landmark restaurant now – for the past 113 years. The original establishment is still operating at Campbell Street in Georgetown, Penang. The fascia of the shop is pale yellow in colour, with the shop name casted in relief of green colour, such a vintage beauty. The restaurant has now expanded its scale. There is another outlet just a few doors away, on the same row of shop.…

    Jom DRINK! // Pastribella Bakeshop @ Tamarind Square, Cyberjaya

    We only wanted a place for Zyan to sleep peacefully in the stroller, but ended up in love with their cake. We were trying to take photos of Zyan in Tamarind Square last weekend. Alas, no luck for us because Zyan was asleep the whole time we were there. Of course, we aren’t quick to give up, so we did try to let him sleep all he wanted, hoping it wouldn’t be too late for him to wake up for the photoshoot. Since we had to wait anyhow, we decided to wait in style by choosing a café in Tamarind Square – with air-conditioning. That was how we stumbled upon…

    Jom DRINK! // Pokok.KL @MAHSA Avenue

    We always think we’re not quite a qualified café hoppers but due to the nature of our work, we always have the right opportunity to patronise a café. This is, though, somewhat we feel blessed about. After all, it’s never a harm to learn how to appreciate beautiful things in life. Such as this cafe: Pokok.KL This Instagrammable glasshouse-concepted café must have been a hit inside out. A proud project of Brickhouse Group, the café features glass architecture – from floor to ceiling, all the way to the rooftop. The structure is further strengthened by black metal frames – it exudes a distinguished sense of sophistication. The partial brick walls…

    Jom DRINK! // Tujoh Café @ PJ Seksyen 17

    The façade of this café was so unassuming – like a perfect disguise to the wonderful experience in within. Deep inside our hearts we knew this wasn’t our first time here. We just couldn’t recall what happened after our previous visit. Tucked away in an old double-storey shophouse in Seksyen 17, Tujoh Cafe is a complete gem to spend the few afternoon hours away, either enjoying a cup of coffee all alone, or gathering some friends or workmates over a hearty coffee session. Although the façade seems unassuming, but we cannot deny it’s an Instagrammable café around this area. Occupying a cozy space favoured with tastefully designed interior, the café…

    Jom EAT! // Hanwoori Korean Restaurant @ Ampang

    What’s your fix on a rainy day? Mine — heart-warming hot food. It’s raining in the evening of our 6th dating anniversary. Billy and I had initially planned to celebrate the day with authentic Chinese Szechuan hotpot, but had to give up the plan. I was rather grumpy that we had to change the plan due to awful traffic condition following a rainy afternoon. We ended up in Ampang. When we speak of Ampang, the first thing came into our mind would be the very, very useful ramyeon pot and a box of extremely flavourful kimchi we bought from a Korean supermarket here. Oh yes, when we speak of Ampang,…

    Jom EAT! // Aunty Manju’s Banana Leaf Rice @ TTDI

    Nasi lemak, Hainanese chicken rice, banana leaf rice…… Name a rice dish I wouldn’t enjoy. I like banana leaf rice. Yes, I like the very typical Malaysian way of flooding the rice with assortment of curries. When we are in Bandar Utama – Taman Tun Dr Ismail area, our favourite place to go for banana leaf rice is Aunty Manju’s Home of Banana Leaf. It was once featured on bi.sh_eat on 22.08.2018. Yes, we’ve known this place for some time now. *bi.sh_eat was one of our earlier effort to encourage readers to discover good food within their vicinity, but soon after its initial launch, we had to somehow “discontinue” it…

    Jom DRINK! // Cafe Du Jour @ The Hub SS2

    After moving into where we live now for 3 years, we are finally expecting a new neighbour to move in soon. Yes, the adjoining unit is finally welcoming its occupant soon. It’s thrilling but the drilling from all the renovation works is rather disturbing at times. It makes a good reason to pack my laptop and find a quieter place to focus on my work.One of our new favourites is Cafe Du Jour at The Hub SS2. The exterior of the café may look humble but the interior deco surely makes it Instagram-worthy. I especially like the plants in the café, it creates a refreshing atmosphere for those who patronise…

    Jom EAT! | Kari Kepala Ikan D’Tugu View

    As much as we view Tugu Negara as our utmost patriotic National Monument, there’s little we knew about the vicinity of the area. At least to us, we didn’t know there’s a little hidden gem tucked away in the lush greenery surrounding the area. So one day, I was really in the mood for rich, scrumptious fish head curry. We browsed through our options and shortlisted a few which carry good reviews. When we stumbled upon Mark Wiens’ vlog about D’Tugu View Cafe, we were salivating and our mind yelled, “This is it!” We parked our car at a spot just right outside the National Monument. However, we then found…

    Jom EAT! // Kanbe @ 163 Retail Park

    It brings back the delightful ramen breeze to soothe our desire for a bowl of authentic Japanese ramen. If you’re following our foodie trail fond enough, you might have noticed our adoration for Japanese ramen. It is an unexplainable fondness. Last week as we were loitering in Mont Kiara’s 163 Retail Park, we passed by KANBE. We’d love to try it then but it seemed unavailable (arh, such a great loss). Soon enough, we find ourselves in 163 Retail Park again. As we approached KANBE, the entrance was congested with queueing customers. At a glance, there were probably more than 10 groups of patrons ahead of us. Deep breath and…

    Jom EAT! // The Lankan Crabs @ Bangsar

    Being the wife of a premium seafood trader, I always thought I have had enough of seafood – but I was wrong. I could always have a little bit more. Didn’t know there was a hidden gem in Bangsar serving authentic Sri Lankan crab recipes and other dishes until one day Billy came home from work and insisted we should schedule a dinner there. “I salivated at their menu” That was how he described, so when the day finally came, I was thrilled. Established in March 2020, the restaurant may seem new to many, but enthusiastic food lovers have highly regarded The Lankan Crabs. If you’re unfamiliar with Bangsar district,…
