Traditional homemade Sarawak noodles served with minced pork, crispy anchovies, onsen egg and of course, the house special dry chilli. It's quite popular among the lunchtime crowd, clearly unfazed by the sweltering heat from our weather here!
These dome shaped pastries symbolises 圆圆满满 ( a successful marriage ) and 甜甜蜜蜜 ( a marriage filled with love and sweetness ). The yellow one has red bean paste filling while the pink is filled with lotus paste. Both is equally sweet and equally delightful. The pastry skin is not overly thick and filling has the right amount of moisture.
If you love char kuay teow, and love cockles even more, you have to come here! This CKT stall is located in a Chinese coffee shop in Seremban, and it is very reasonably priced! The picture above is a plate with extra cockles (literally so much). We ordered two of these and one normal and it was only RM19.50! The normal plate also had a generous spoonful of cockles on it! I'm pretty picky with CKTs and this one with fried pork lard really hit it for me, even though I don't eat cockles. Do give this a try if you're around the area!
Nasi lemak with salted egg yolk fried chicken. It definitely came with more keropok but everyone dived into it before I could take a pic! Loved how they serve it with kangkung and petai sambal.
Friendly advice: Have some mint after petai 😉
Forget the two-hour drive to Ipoh, when you can have its classic chicken rice right here in Sri Petaling. Boasting air-conditioning and comfy leather seats, this branch presents a renewed experience of the stalwart dish. Ingredients, sourced from Ipoh, are quality-assured — from the smooth, succulent organic free-range chicken to the fragrant steamed rice and chicken rice companion, crunchy beansprouts blanched in light soy sauce. Bring your colleagues or take your kids here after school hours for the value set lunches. Since free-range chicken is known to be better in flavour but smaller in size, upsize the meal with extras. The Organic Kampung Chicken + Honey BBQ Pork (RM15.90) set, which comes with a Thai sauce tofu on the side, makes a supreme combo. Wash it down with the Homemade Barley (RM2).

Having gone through a recent revamp that now allows diners to enjoy hawker fare comfortably in an air-conditioned space or airy first-floor seatings, New Lucky Restaurant is certainly one breakfast stop you cannot miss in the neighbourhood. We say this because it houses Sri Petaling's most loved chee cheong fun. Invite a friend (preferably a morning person), grab seats, and head straight for Aunty Gan's Hong Kong Chee Cheong Fun (from RM5) — steamed rice rolls stuffed with either char siew or prawns. The key to good Hong Kong-style chee cheong fun is its slippery smooth, melt-in-your-mouth texture, and Aunty Gan nails it every time. The flat rice noodles are bathed in a briny soy sauce and topped with a dollop of sambal for a flavour boost. Have it with an awakening cup of hot Kopi (RM2.20).

When it comes to hawker fare, Alison encompasses the best of Sri Petaling. On weekends, take your family out to this forever-packed locale for a cheap and good brunch. A mother-daughter duo dishes out wok hei-laden Char Kuey Teow (from RM6), chock-full of plump prawns and cockles. If you enjoy your noodles with an edge, ask for the spicy version that packs quite a punch! Just two stalls down is the uncle who cooks up a mean Claypot Lou Shu Fun (from RM7). Jewelled with a raw egg that slowly cooks itself from the heat, this piping-hot dark sauce noodles is definitely worth ordering. Finally, there is Hakka Noodles (from RM6), springy noodles tossed in a mild housemade sauce that gets help from a bounteous share of deeply flavoured minced meat. Pro tip: Wake up early and arrive before 11am for this because seats fill up fast!

This is one of those treats that brings back those fond memories of my childhood. I remember those days where my dad would bring home packets of these soft cakes after visiting the night market and the whole family would gather together and enjoy them in the living room while catching up with our favourite Hong Kong TV series. QQ in texture, so soft and so sweet. Soft cakes are as sweet as candy. But for me, the memories in them is even sweeter. 🍭
