Curry Chicken Bun @ Restoran Lucky (P.D) Seafood

After I tweeted, “What’s good to eat in Port Dickson”, some friends responded and recommending Lucky Curry Chicken Bun.

Immediately, I did a quick research on Google and found couple of blogs recommending Restoran Lucky for their Curry Chicken Bun. However, I couldn’t find any blogs showing the map to this place. There was one blog which gave rough description of the whereabouts and I followed it.

Viola! we found it!

Upon touching down Restoran Lucky, we ordered their curry chicken bun. It costs RM25 for the large bun whereas the small bun is RM20. They ran out of small bun hence we ordered the large bun – just for the two of us.

The large bun is about the size of a pomelo. Aaah.. reminds me of the pamelo girls in Ipoh.

Anyway, the kind waiter peeled the bun to expose a bowlful of yummy curry chicken. We dipped the bread with curry. It was heavenly!

Since it was just the two of us, we couldn’t finish it. I think we need at least 4 fellows to finish it.

To ease others to find this place, check out the map below. The easier way to get there is to exit at Lukut at the Seremban – PD highway, head to the town and keep an eye on your right side. It’s at a corner.

Ice Room Cafe @ Port Dickson

We found this place while driving randomly around Port Dickson town. It’s not hard to miss. The entire building was lime green.

When I travel, I usually will not eat in a place unless it is recommended by friends, blogs, food websites and even 4square. Ice Room was recommended in a few blogs and 4square.

Looks like chicken meat!

Nut case – Peanut Snow Ice is highly recommended. It’s basically shaved ice cream with a strong taste of peanut butter. It’s like having a mixture of ice cream and peanut butter melting in your mouth.

A and I gobbled it within minutes!

I initially thought that this cafe is only available in Port Dickson but after a quick research, I realise that they have many branches all over Malaysia!

There’s one in Kota Damansara. Can’t wait to try it out!

Restoran Sin Tong Kok, Sri Jaya, Pahang Darul Makmur

I’ll start this blog entry with a lame joke which I heard from a friend.

Char Siew Pao (Roast pork steamed bun) and Tai Pao went to watch a sad movie.
After the movie, Tai Pao cried like a bitch. More than Char Siew Pao.
Why is that so?
Answer: Because Tai Pao got more filling (feeling).

Char Siew Pao and Tou Sa Pao (Red Bean Steamed Bun) went to watch a sad movie.
After the movie, Char Siew Pao cried but Tou Sa Pao didn’t.
Why is that so?
Answer: Because both of them have different “fillings” (feeling)

Char Siew Pao and Mantau went to watch a sad movie.
After the movie, Char Siew Pao cried but Mantau didn’t cry at all.
Why is that so?
Answer: Because Mantau has no “filling” (feeling)

Lame but it made me LOL.

Anyway, A and I was at Kuantan for a wedding. We didn’t have much time to explore Kuantan food but I’ve been to most of the recommended eateries in Kuantan. You can read my Kuantan Food Guide for details.

On our way back to KL, we dropped by Sri Jaya for their famous steamed bun. This explains why I have a lame joke about paos.

Unfortunately, when we arrived, we were told that the steamed buns were sold out. I was told that the steamed buns are sold from 12pm and it will usually finish by 2pm – 3pm. I was there at 3pm and all the steamed buns were sold out.

Instead, we were greeted with empty large dimsum baskets filled flies. MANY MANY FLIES. Thank God they ran out of steamed buns!

Immediately after this picture was taken, a fly flew into my car -__-

We decided to try something that isn’t covered with flies – egg tarts. For RM7, you can have 6 pieces of egg tarts of assorted flavours such as pandan, carrot and even dragon fruit! We chose the original, pandan and carrot flavours.

I must say that the egg tarts were awesome. The crust was moist but crunchy. I hope the flies didn’t play a part in it.

Pandan flavour is the best! Original flavour is good. Carrot is just so-so.

To those driving to Kuantan or from Kuantan, do drop by Restoran Sin Tong Kok. To get there, exit at Sri Jaya and head to Sri Jaya town. It’s a short drive from the toll.

Strongbow @ Boathouse, TTDI


When I was in university, my favourite drink was the Snake Bite Black. It is a mixture of beer, cider and cranberry juice. I was told that the cider that they use is Strongbow cider.

This is me and my former classmate Cindy holding a pint of Snake Bite Black each..

This is Alan after few pints. GAHAHAH

Good old days!

My girlfriend is also a big fan of cider when she was studying in the UK.

However, when we were back in KL, we totally forgot about cider until we recently learned that Strongbow is available at our local pub, Boathouse!

We made a trip down to Boathouse on a Thursday night and ordered a pint of it.

A tall chilly pint of sweet apple cider mmmm.

Straight from the tap!

A sip of it immediately brought many memories. Especially the one during my birthday back in 2001. I had 4 pints of Snake Bite Black at my hall together with my classmates and this happened..

Those drinking snakebites or cider must control intake as drinking them quickly can result to being drunk and belligerent XD

Other than being a watering hole, Boathouse is also well known for its tasty pub food. I had this awesome Bangers and Mash.

If you’re wondering how Strongbow taste like, it’s like mildly sweet carbonated apple juice. It is made of fermented juices of apples. It is currently the best selling apple cider in the world and is currently imported from UK to Malaysia by GAB.

Gulp gulp gulp..

Other than Boathouse, Strongbow is now widely available in many other pubs such as Finnegan’s (Bangsar, Hartamas, Changkat BB, Mid Valley), Laundry Bar, Sid’s Pub, WIP and The Magnificent Fish & Chips Bar.

Nadeje Cafe @ Melaka

As mentioned in my earlier post, A and I headed to Nadeje cafe to try out their famous Mille Crepe.

According to my colleague, Nadeje has two outlets. One located in Dataran Pahlawan and another one in Plaza Mahkota. I was told that the latter is better but we decided to go to the former asQ it was convenient to us.

The outlet at Dataran Pahlawan is located on the 1st floor. We were greeted with a row of cakes consisting of a variety of Mille Crepe.

It was rather hot as the air condition of the cafe was down. The waiter guided us to a table with two flies perching on the table. We had to shoo the flies ourselves -___-

A asked whether there were any seat that is cooler. The lousy waiter said, “It’s all the same”.

Notwithstanding the lousy service and flies, we ordered a slice of banana chocolate mille crepe and also a slice of original mille crepe.

I must say that Nadeje’s mille crepe is not bad. Some people say that their mille crepe is better than the one served at Food Foundry. However, to me, they taste the same. Perhaps I should try the mille crepe in Plaza Mahkota before judging them. Or perhaps the quality of their mille crepe has deteriorated after the departure of their Chef, Amos. Read The Downfall of Nadeje Patisserie by JasonMumbles for more information.

The best mille crepe I tried so far in Malaysia is the one from Shangri-la Hotel, Kuala Lumpur. I’m not sure whether they serve it in one of the cafes in Shangri-la Hotel as I got the cake for free when I became a member of the Shangri-la Rewards Program. Their strawberry mille crepe was awesome!

Anyway, if you’re in Melaka and would like to try Mille crepe, the map to their outlets are below:

Penang Curry Rice @ Restoran Ming Yang, Kuchai Lama

Ming Yang Restaurant is your typical Chinese coffeeshop with various stalls selling all sorts of dishes.

My parents like eating at this place but I hate eating at this place. Although they have many stalls, none of them serve tasty food.

Until Penang Curry Rice came along!

Penang Curry Rice is a small stall with various dishes to choose. It’s like economic rice but with a focus on curry.

My personal favourites would be their curry potatoes and petai. Their potatoes are cooked till soft whereas their curry is not spicy (to me).

Yummy petai!

Penang Curry Rice is only open at night and opens till late.

Parking may be a problem. There’s an open parking opposite Ming Yang. It is RM2 per entry.

Beef Noodles @ Restoran Yang Kee @ Taman OUG, Kuala Lumpur

This place was my regular hangout during my college and university days. Whenever the pork noodles place at Sun Sea Restaurant is closed, I’ll head to Yang Kee Restaurant for their awesome beef noodles.

My personal favourite would be their dried version of beef wan tan mee (egg noodles). Their noodles is topped with tasty minced beef whereas a mixture of beef brisket, soft thinly sliced raw slice beef, stomach and beef balls are placed in a bowl of clear broth.

However, they are not very generous with their meat. You may want to ask them to “kah liu”. Not to be calculative, they gave me a slice of beef brisket and 2 pieces of raw slice beef, stomach and beef balls. -_-

Other than beef noodles, they also have yong tau fu. Great side dish.

The place is packed during lunchtime on weekends. Hence, be prepared to wait for your table!

52 Jalan Hujan Rahmat 2 (same row as Steven’s Corner)
Taman OUG
Jalan Klang Lama, Kuala Lumpur

Opening hours:
8.30am-7pm. Closed on Mondays.
For Sundays and public holidays: Open from 8.30am-4pm.


Peng Jiu Fish Head Noodles @ Imbi Market, Kuala Lumpur (友九鱼头米)

After losing my Mayorship of Yut Kee on foursquare, I decided to find solace at Imbi Market. You may remember I blogged about this place many months ago. Ah Weng Koh Hainan Tea was recommended by me as a good breakfast place.

After eating at Ah Weng Koh for a few times, I discovered a stall selling tasty fish head noodles. It’s just a few steps away from Ah Weng Koh and apparently it was recommended by Lonely Planet! You can see a few articles pasted on the stall.

I did a Google search on it but I can’t seem to find any blogs featuring this place.

Anyway, their fish head noodles soup is quite thick and creamy with generous amount of meat. Overall quite tasty.

Picture taken with my camera phone. Pardon the quality.

It comes with a cute little basket to dispose bones or anything you dislike.

The only problem with eating at Imbi Market is that it is bloody hot. Made me sweat like a pig.

My shirt was all wet – as if I just joined a wet t-shirt contest.

Imbi Market is just a few metres away from Pasar Rakyat. Parking space is ample. You may park by the roadside or pay RM2 for private parking.

Snowflake Taiwanese Dessert Secret 雪花栈 @ Kota Damansara

My friend Ken and a few of his friends started a new Snowflake outlet in Kota Damansara. You may recall that I blogged about Snowflake here.

Since it’s A and my favourite dessert house, A and I made a trip to Snowflake at Kota Damansara to say hi to my friends and try out the new place.

The shop was about a week old hence they were short of staff. Ken and his partners were working at the counter – together with the girlfriends of all the partners! Free labour!

As usual, we had the cold Best Seller.

But this time round, Sam of Stylesofia introduced us to another dessert which is sohai bean base. It is called the Soya Ice Series.

It comes with their famous taroballs, peanuts, red beans and grass jelly on top of soya bean flavoured shaven ice. Nais!!

This will be my new hangout spot 😀 Please say hi to me if you see me there!

Map and Address


There’s a grand opening promotion tomorrow!

Departure Lounge @ Damansara Utama

Departure Lounge is now my favourite coffee place.

Although pricey, their coffee is well worth it. My personal favourite would be their cafe latte (RM8.00). It comes with all sorts of coffee art – depending which barista is on duty.

The interior is nice and they have a rack of travel books for customers’ reading. If you’re planning to travel to any countries, you can head to Departure Lounge to read their travel books here while enjoying your coffee.

The drawback of this place is their food. It comes in very small portion at an expensive rate. Their all day breakfast is good but as mentioned, pricey and small (3 item breakfast costs RM8.90). If you’re planning to have mushrooms as part of your breakfast set, make sure you ask for fresh mushrooms. Canned mushrooms tasted horrible.

There are two outlets namely in Damansara Utama (Uptown) and Solaris Mont Kiara
