Take a moment to feast your eyes on the picture below. The special at Usop Burger Celup
This is one of the finest examples of a 'celup'-style street burger. In this case it's an oblong patty dipped in a thick a peppery black pepper sauce, then wrapped up in egg with more sauces and vegetables. Usop plies his trade from a little food truck and on most nights, he's steady at the grill as orders come in non-stop. In one night he sells from 3 to 4 bags of buns, that's about 150 burgers- not bad for a guys who started doing it part time. When we chatted with him, Usop can't even sit down because of orders
Although there are many burger 'celup' out there, Usop's burgers are quite addictive probably due to the fact that he fries up his burgers then dip them in his black pepper 'berhantu' while it's still hot. He leaves it in so that the sauce will soak into the patties rendering it soft and with every bite, it bursts with heat and spiciness (kind like a Prosperity burger x 10). Flavour here is top notch- thick, peppery and will make you crave it when you're peckish late at night. That sauce is good… Continue reading »
Lunch for the working individual often presents a challenge. 1 hour at most to travel, makan and then get back to work (hopefully). So it’s no surprise that convenience is a huge factor that determines where these folk have lunch. It need not be a bad thing though. A good lunch is often not too far away. Here’s our pick for those of you in the Damansara… More »

"Freshly fried chicken every time!"
So, what makes Famous, famous? Their fried chicken, of course.
In the 90’s, Nasi Lemak Famous was a small stall in Bangsar, a supper spot popular with the post-clubbing crowd trickling in from the nearby watering holes in Telawi. At first, many came for the nasi lemak but in the end, many more returned for their juicy fried chicken. Now, more than 30 years on, Famous is still striving and doing well.
"Oven-fresh pizzas, unbeatable prices."
Narvan Italian sounds like such an odd combination. ‘Narvan’ doesn’t sound anything close to Italian and sure enough, they’re not. Mr. Ata and Mrs. Ismat hail from Iran. They’ve been in Malaysia for years and their love of Italian food (pizzas in particular) led them to open Narvan Italian a couple of years ago.
