It started out simple enough. The Friedchillies team was at Pulau Perhentian a few days ago when our content chief, Honey, mentioned that there's a spot on the island that does this amazing, mind-blowing Mars Bar Shake. It's exactly
what you think it is: a Mars Bar, blended into an icy, cool and refreshing beverage.
So of course… More »
This is a fun milkshake that kids will absolutely love. Go on, it’s not always that you indulge in something that you know is kinda bad, but man is it tasty. More »
Just like a Mars Bar shake, but with peanuts to complement the caramel, nougat and chocolate. Just as delicious and sinful! More »
This shake has a rich, caramel flavour with hints of malty chocolate. An exellent use of a candy bar, by our reckoning. Make one now! More »
We're on the verge of Ramadhan, so that means it is PaRam (Pasar Ramadhan) season again. We've gathered some of our favourite PaRams of last year and our picks of the bunch. Here's hoping these stalls are open again this year. In the meantime when you do go to the PaRams, remember: be cool, buy only what you need, don't waste, and whenever possible bring your own tapau boxes. Selamat Menyambut Bulan Ramadhan. PaRam Stadium Shah Alam Seksyen 13, Shah Alam
Probably one of, if not the, biggest PaRams in the Klang Valley. It's absolutely packed with vendors selling everything from drinks and kuih, to whole roasted lamb and laksa. Amza's Kebab
is a mainstay every year, so do check them out. PaRam USJ4, Subang Jaya USJ4, Subang Jaya
This PaRam is full of fantastic choices. Practice some restrain, and go for some really cannot-miss stalls. Favourites here include Waris Mungkal
for their stunning gulais, and Murtabak… Continue reading »
"Pizza in KL just got serious.."
Unlike burgers, pizza hasn't really hit its boom... yet. Is it because they're harder to make or get right than burgers? We're not sure ourselves. However, there are some good independent pizza places in the Klang Valley. These are restaurants that have dedicated people making their own, home-made style pizzas. Often they taste better too compared to the usual 'delivery' pizzas from you-know-who-they-are.
Mikey's Original New York Pizza
in Bangsar is one such place. It's a Mat Salleh owned place, as proprietors Michael Helfman and Andrew Belucci hail from the USA and have been making pizza since the 90s.
Welcome to Mikey's!
A dearth of good pizza restaurants was what prompted them to open up their own in KL. Ever since they started earlier this year, Mikey's has been getting some good buzz on social networks. The restaurant is clean and stylish
, easily echoing an American-Italian eatery with its chess-board floor and brick walls decorated with old-timey posters and pictures.
Nasi Lemak Mondays is back! After a few weeks of intense burger-stuff, it's back to Malaysia's all time favourite nasi dish. This time, try one from a Mamak shop..
One of the best things about nasi lemak is that you can eat it at any time of the day. Breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper. There's bound to be some place selling nasi lemak. Of course you can count on the neighbourhood Mamak shop to have their own as well. Over a World Cup screening, I tried the Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng (RM7) at Al Rafi Bistro in Shah Alam.
I must say I was surprised as I rarely have good nasi lemak at Mamak shops. But this nasi lemak had wonderfully aromatic nasi, laced with onions and ginger and nutty with coconut milk. The deep red sambal is not too spicy. That perfectly fried 'telur goyang' is a highlight. Sambal, runny yolk and nasi is a killer combo. The Ayam Goreng is good: freshly fried, with a shatteringly crispy crust and juicy, flavourful meat inside. Just about excellent with some hot teh tarik. Definitely one of the better Mamak nasi lemaks I've ever tried. My only complaint is that it's pricey (of course...) and it looks, well, meh
