Banana leaf rice is as 'up there' as nasi lemak or char kuey teow when it comes to favourite makan-makan choices amongst Malaysians. It's easy to see why too: a heaping pile of rice, customary selection of vegetables and gravies and if you want, great side dishes of the fried or curried kind. Sri Paandi in Section 11, PJ is no different. This restaurant has been here for more than a decade and was even involved in a 'Curry War' some years back!
A patty with cheese and the usual vegetables are fine and all, but every so often one might have a hankering for more unusual combinations. Peanut butter? Cornflakes? Who would've thought, right? But these three hot burger spots in the Klang Valley are all about unique toppings and flavours that work surprisingly well! myBurgerLab No. 14, Jalan 21/22, Seapark, Petaling Jaya, Selangor I like black buns and I cannot lie...
Of course the crazy folk at myBurgerLab would top this list. When a restaurant has 'lab' in its name, you're pretty sure to expect some off-kilter and more unusual fair. myBurgerLab is famous for their 'experiments'
that ultimately end up being delicious and satisfying. Burgers topped with lychees? Peanut butter? Even watermelon! It seems that the sky is the limit when it comes to flavours at myBurgerLab. Who knows what they'll come up with next? But we betcha people will be lining up for it! KGB Bangsar 23, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur Cornflakes on a burger give loads of CRUNCH!

A pasar is always a good place to get yummy food, Nasi Lemak included!
Pasar Seksyen 6, Shah Alam is one of the smaller pasars around, but it still has loads to offer. Fresh vegetables and fruits to meats and seafood, it is also one of the more affordable pasars to shop at. Of course, there's plenty of good eats too.
This nasi lemak being sold at the pasar is what I like to call the 'quintessential' type. Nasi, sambal, cucumber, a slice of omelette and crunchy nuts and ikan bilis. The nasi is densely packed and quite creamy with santan.
Classic nasi lemak.
The sambal tumis ikan bilis strikes just the perfect balance between sweet and spicy, and plays well with the salty ikan bilis and mellow slice of omelette.
For less than RM2, it's a pretty good bargain. Continue reading »

"A pie a day makes you come back here for more!"
DELICIOUS, was the first word that came to mind when we first sampled a pie from this brand new eatery at Uptown Damansara. I know, that’s a giveaway, but this place is probably one of the best new cafes to open in recent times. A Pie Thing is conveniently located. It’s adjacent Damansara Utama’s police station and you’ll see its big and clear signage from the highway as you drive towards TTDI or Mutiara Damansara. This fresh idea for a restaurant (a pie specialist! Not too many of those around yet) is the brainchild of a group of friends who previously studied at Taylors University...
