    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…

    Foodie Trip // A Day Trip in Penang

    Penang is one of the most popular destinations in Asia that people come for food. And that’s our top reason of travelling up north to Penang all the time. I might have declared this before for a thousand times but I still wish to do it for the 1001st time: Penang is our favourite place to be in Malaysia. From cultural diversities and community atmosphere to geographical landscape and food scene, there is nothing we don’t like about this state located on the northwest coast of Peninsular Malaysia.The drive from Kuala Lumpur to Georgetown, Penang should take slightly longer than 4 hours, travelling on highways. There is a 355km distance…

    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…
