Whenever I feel like having fried rice with something crunchy to go with it, I would like visit NST Coffeeshop in Kota Kemuning and order the Thai style Fried Rice from the “tai chow” stall there. It’s fried in spicy and sour flavour with pineapples and chili padi. It is then topped with tiny pieces of fried meat covered with batter. It cost RM4.00 per plate for 1 person.

Was exploring the old way to Port Dickson from Nilai and we passed by Mantin town in Negeri Sembilan and decided to check out some of the breakfast place. We made a stop at the Pusat Penjaja Mantin and checked out Gerai Makanan U Ee,

We noticed most of the tables are ordering from this stall, hence we gave it a try. I ordered the curry noodles while Jack ordered the dried noodles plus a few pieces of yong tau foo. The yong tau foo looks old school pork type, and its really good, no regret but the noodles are so so only. The curry noodles cost RM2.80 with a lot of stuff inside and I added “si-hum” or clams which cost RM0.30 more 😉

Coffee as usual in most small town is fantastically rich and fragrant, really good I must say, a good stop if you are passing by anytime ;).

This yong tau foo place is located in Kg Cempaka in Petaling Jaya which is converted into a restaurant from a corner house. They offer a range of yong tau foo at RM0.80 each and kampar fish/meatballs at RM0.40 each. You can either take it with rice, chee cheong fun or noodles that comes in curry or soup.

Taste wise is so so, fish type of paste but the environment is ok, lots of fan and easy to find parking plus a lot of staffs ready to serve.

Hailam Cafe is located in Jalan SS2/30 in Petaling Jaya, it is the same row as Lobsterman just behind Yee’s Tuition. Its a corner shop by the lorong which looks like its spin off from the Tang House of Fishball, I noticed the staff wear the same uniform, having similar menu and serving the same yummy lime plum juice.

The main difference in the menu here are new items like fish noodles, which comes either in soup or fried with chee cheong fun. My personal preference is the fried fish noodles with chee cheong fun which goes for RM5.

Tea time snacks such as yam cake and Chinese desserts are available here too. Some of those available are sweet potato barley, black gluttonous rice, barley foo chuk jingko, etc. which goes from RM2 to RM5.

Tuk Tuk Dei technically means quite ok but so so in Cantonese and yet this is the name of nice and cozy coffeeshop in Ara Damansara. Its air conditioned and open and it just serve your usual coffeeshop stuff.

I like their teh-si special here, which is iced teh-si with palm sugar (gula melaka). You can see the layer of tea, milk and palm sugar in your drinks, taste just like any iced teh-si but palm sugar gives it a nice and rich aroma, pretty cool drink ;).

I tried their bittergound noodles here, its basically soup noodles with bittergound, tomato and chicken in it, nothing to shout about, but when you feel heaty, its something nice to eat. The char koay teow is also not bad and so if the wantan mee with roast pork and curry :).

We stopped by Maran for lunch after our camping trip to Hutan Lipur Jerangkang nearby, this is a busy restaurant serving reasonably good and priced Chinese dishes. The pillow pau seems to be very popular in this shop too and you have to order it in advance.

Anyhow, another popular thing here is their egg tarts which comes in many flavors. Other than the regular, you have a choice of pandan, dragon fruit, carrot, etc. Its quite unique and the good thing is the fruits flavor does not overwhelm the egg tarts. I find the regular and pandan one really good especially eating it when its hot!

RM1 per tart and you will need to wait for quite a while, because they will only start making the tarts once you have order them and the queue can get quite long ;).
