Sarawak Laksa

A must-try Sarawak Laksa if you're in Kuala Lumpur / Petaling Jaya. One of the best ones I've tasted. Almost on par with the ones you can find in Kuching, Sarawak.

Premium Char Siew and Siew Yoke (from RM 11), Smoked Hickory Chicken Leg (RM13.50) & Hakka Noodles with Minced Meat (RM7)

Came here to try their well-known char siew, and while I loved the glistening caramelised shell encasing the slab of meat, I found some parts of the meat underneath overtenderised 鈥 some may say melt in the mouth, but I found it somewhat mushy.

The siew yoke's better than average and didn't disappoint with its crispy layer of skin, while the smoked chicken leg was better than expected. I love all things smoked, so I might be a bit biased, but the chicken was really tender and flavour-packed. 馃憛馃挦

Do note that their serving portion of the Hakka noodles is rather generous so you might want to share a bowl so you whack more meat! 馃槅

Loh Mai Chee

You know times are bad by seeing the fillings to skin ratio of this Kuih. This used to be one of my go to stalls when I am craving for a traditional snack. Few months back when I am asked to hunt for the 'best traditional kuih' in KL, I had a hard time choosing which was better, between the Loh Mai Chee here and the one in Mahkota Cheras.But after having this today, I can firmly acknowledge Mahkota's Loh Mai Chee to be the best of the best so far. Taste wise, it still tasted good but in terms of size and price, it was a let down. Don't be Kiam Siap la. as what you reap is what you sow. Good food will eventually draw more business wan!馃槉
(RM1.2 for a tiny little ping-pong size ball)

Ji Dan Gao / Gai Dan Gou

Light and fluffy which is literally a Chinese version of a spongecake. This cake has a fragrant pandan aroma to it, but it is the strong eggy taste in this cake which I personally like. Have another piece of this in the spirit of 'healthy-eating' as this dessert has no fats in it! (RM1.5)

For Thick, Glistening Char Siew

A firm favourite for roasts in our books is Toast & Roast, the homely locale tucked away in a quieter part of SS2. The cuts of Premium Char Siew (from RM11) here are distinct 鈥 a sweet-sticky exterior leads you to its heavenly hybrid of juicy fat and delicious meat. A choice carb-pairing is the Hakka Noodles T&R (RM6.50). There is a more economical option for the noodles topped with single-portion char siew (RM7.50), but we assure you that there can never be too much char siew, so splurge away. Weekends are when families in the residential neighbourhood pop in for breakfast, so come instead for weekday lunch when it's just you and your char siew. Fine, maybe a close friend or colleague can come too.
Avg price per person: RM15

Favourite Green

What a lovely drink to end the evening. p.s tokyo serves one of the yummiest matcha latte at a steep price of RM13.90 but i enjoyed it nevertheless ! 鉂わ笍

Japanese Softserve

I heard they are having the best softserve among all the softserve shop in town. Although I'm not trying all the softserve in town but this one is scrumptious. The green colour softserve is actually their Matcha Parfait (RM15.90) and the brown colour softserve is their Hojicha tea ice cream (RM6.90 for mini-cups). Both are good in terms of flavours and textures. Anyway, remember to have instant-print Instagram photo for FREE ! What you have to do is just take photo in PS Tokyo, hashtag #pstokyo, check in location and post on Instagram. Will definitely go back again to try their other signatures.

Char Siew And Roast Pork

Toast & Roast's char siew is one of the best I have tasted here in Malaysia. I like how fatty and juicy it is. It is very soft and it feels like melting in your mouth haha 馃榿 We usually order half char siew and half roast pork for RM33 - good for 4 la! The roast pork is okay, nothing too special. I would definitely munch on the char siew first when the plate is served 馃槢 I've heard their Hakka Mee's (RM7) famous too so you could give that a try :)

Lunches here are quite busy so be prepared to line up for a parking space and a table.

Nostalgic Mee Hoon Kuih

Pan mee has always been a Malaysian favourite, but not many places make the mee hoon kuih version anymore. It鈥檚 a chore to pinch the noodle dough one by one compared to cutting them into long, even strands with a machine.
I still remember my kindergarden days where my babysitter would make mee hoon kuih for my meals. After school, I would look forward to watching her make the dough from scratch with her handy noodle machine and boil the soup with sayur manis (sweet leaves) and egg. Until today, I still don鈥檛 have the recipe in my hands, unfortunately.
Exploring SS2 has always been full of surprises because you discover little gems you鈥檇 never expect to pop up - like Blossom Deli Cafe. Away from the hustle and bustle, just doors from Standing Theory, lies a little shop that sells cakes, pastries and local kuih (nothing over RM9.5).
Other than the sweet delights, Blossom Deli Cafe also serves some local food for affordable prices. Mee hoon kuih (RM5.5) was on the menu - of course I ordered it. It鈥檚 not a spectacular bowl but it certainly reminded me of my babysitter鈥檚 mee hoon kuih which I鈥檝e never had for years. To wash it all down, the weather warranted a glass of iced Milo (RM2). Upon paying at the counter, I had to snag a sponge cake (RM2) to munch in the office for tea.
