    Jom EAT! // Laksa Bisu @ Air Itam, Penang

    I think it’s time to make a change. We can’t leave Penang without having a bowl of authentic Assam Laksa. That’s just wrong. When tourists speak about Penang Assam Laksa, naturally the “famous” stall at Jalan Pasar next to Air Itam market will come into picture. While we agree this stall serves decent Assam Laksa, we can’t get over the thought of it being rather “touristy”. RELATED: Find out more about our Foodie Trip in Penang If you don’t already know, there is actually another stall right opposite the famous one, in Air Itam Market Annex Food Court. The stall is named after its owner who was born with speaking…

    Jom EAT! // PIK NIK @ Jalan Nagor, Georgetown

    It’s been some while since I last fell in love with food from a café. Pik Nik nailed it. We really thought we should “Pik Nik everyday On Christmas Day 2020, we were blessed with a whole day of little family celebration. We aren’t Christians after all, but we always think Christmas is a day of happiness and warmth, a celebration of hope with family and friends. This year, we made a trip to Georgetown, Penang, a Malaysian city we truly adore for we believe it would make a relaxing and happy occasion.

    Jom EAT! // Village Restaurant @ Rawang

    We have been passing by this town for countless times. God must have known our effort so He unveiled this restaurant before us. Kidding. This restaurant was actually introduced to us by my brother-in-law, John, on our way back to Kuala Lumpur from Ipoh-Penang Foodie Trip. Yup, I kind of wish to think this is like our episode 3 because it’s so good on its own – it’s the climactic finale to our trip. (Disclaimer: Food photos were taken hastily because we just didn’t want to make everyone wait) RELATED: If you have a Day Trip to Fraser’s Hill like us, Village Restaurant is a good dinner place too.

    Jom DRINK! // Butter + Beans @ Happy Mansion, PJ

    A very lively ambience. We’ve seen a lot of smiles here. Smile and greet the customers as they walk in, smile and bid farewell as they go. Perhaps we have found Butter + Beans cafe lively and happy enough for us to spend the whole afternoon. Being in a service industry for some while now, I sometimes wonder – what kind of service does a customer expect to receive as he / she enters a shop? While expectation can be pretty ideal, the realistic scenario can be different – after all, service staff are normal human beings bound to be affected by emotional fluctuations, we just can’t expect them to…

    Jom EAT ! Sun Sun Nam Cheong Hainanese Food KKB

    Today, we just feel like going somewhere not as hectic as the town, we thought of Kuala Kubu Bharu. KKB, as it is fondly known, is a charming little town at the foothills of Bukit Fraser in Hulu Selangor. One place to enjoy home-styled Hainanese cooking in a traditional shophouse is Sun Sun Nam Cheong. This is an old style restaurant still maintains its old fixtures and signage. The restaurant is very clean, and the setting is rather simple but authentic old school style. This restaurant has been around for more than 60 years and today it is run by the son who himself has aged. Mdm Tan (the owner’s…

    Jom EAT! // Kafe Kleptokrat @ Jalan Tun HS Lee

    Impress from the core is the most impressive form of impression. Kafe Kleptokrat has been a great hit these days. If you wonder what Kleptokrat means, you’re missing out some humour. Kleptokrat (or kleptocrat in English) is a ruler who uses their power to steal their country’s resources. Yes! Welcome to Malaysia and embrace the Malaysian-humour. However, we believe Kafe Kleptokrat has nothing to do (I hope) with this term. We were wondering its hype until one day we stumbled upon its photos on Instagram and decided to give it a go. Kafe Kleptokrat is located at Jalan Tun H S Lee, in the bustling city centre of Kuala Lumpur.…

    Jom EAT! // Ombak Kitchen @ Bukit Jelutong

    How do you savour your dinner today? Malaysians, pakai tangan jer… Seafood is our happy potion – more if we knew it’s a place where we can enjoy seafood without caring too much about forcing tines into the delicate flesh. It’s like a paradise redefined. With its tagline “Pakai tangan jer…” (Just use your hands), Ombak Kitchen has a clear vision of positioning the restaurant as a fun-filled, casual and vibrant place to hang-out. Ombak Kitchen in Bukit Jelutong is located at D’Vida Business Centre. The interior is fuss-free and functional – there is a section specifically allocated for birthday celebrations and the dining area is comfortably air-conditioned. Ombak Kitchen…

    Jom EAT! // Restoran Choong Kee “Pokok Besar” @ Ipoh

    It’s been around for a very, very long while. We’ve heard good remarks of it for some time. So, today is the day. It is Wednesday today so it is a good day to venture out of Kuala Lumpur to hunt for good food in Ipoh. Ahem, there is actually no bad day to do so. Just that this Wednesday feels like weekend. We departed from Kuala Lumpur at 10:30am and arrived in Ipoh two hours later. My brother-in-law has been kind of eager to recommend this place to us. We have heard of good remarks about this stall from time to time, we are more than just happy. RELATED:…

    Foodie Trip // A Day Trip in Ipoh

    Travelling up north is a fun trip to do. Not for other reasons but… … to eat. During Awal Muharram holiday, we made a short getaway trip to Ipoh (and Penang). From Kuala Lumpur, Ipoh is approximately 200km away, depending on the route you take, the drive should be slightly over 2 hours. It makes all sense to travel to Ipoh for a day trip – just to savour good food it has to offer. This article is a recount on what we did on that day. If you are not planning to drive, a train ride is an ideal choice. You can refer to KTMB website to check on…

    Jom EAT! Gia Xiang Steamboat Restaurant

    Over the past weekend, we had really awesome time bonding with our family members in Georgetown, Penang. This is our favourite city in Malaysia, thanks to its vibrance and cultural setting. Of course, no trip would be complete without a quality-assured feast in this foodie paradise of Malaysia. On Saturday evening, we found ourselves patronising Gia Xiang Steamboat Restaurant at Jalan Krian again. Yes, again. We have to admit that it’s not our first visit, as we have been to this restaurant a few times. There are a few Gia Xiang outlets in Penang, but we always go to the Jalan Krian branch (mainly because we are loyal, teehee!). The…
