We are huge fans of Caesar salad because let’s face it if we have to eat the green stuff, a little bit of salty, creamy dressing is the right pairing. We gave the classic caesar an asian soul by adding in garlic and some rice vinegar More »
"Frisky prawns attack diner in steamboat incident"
Sometimes happiness is as simple as a simmering pot of broth filled to brim with bobbing seafood. Having recently discovered kindred spirits in appreciating the fine art of hot potting, we quickly drove to Kepong to Happy City. One of them remarked, “after we started going here, we pretty much didn’t go anywhere else. What’s the point?” Let me tell you why this place gets repeat customers.
Firstly the seafood is FRESH. Crabs are still twitching and prawns have to be covered with another plate because they will make a last ditch effort to escape. Last time we came here, they literally leapt off the plate they were so fresh and we had to quickly scrape them into the pot. The fish flesh here like snapper and golden pomfret are sweet from being alive 10 minutes ago and there’s also giant clams and mussels, mostly succulent and plump.
Gorgeous milky broth, some crisp fish head and slurpy noodles. This is a bowl of good stuff. There are other things on the menu like pan mee and different types of fish but when I come here, I just order their average joe fish head noodles. What makes this broth extra delish is that fact that they simmer it down with sweet yam so you get chunks of yam soaked in milk- that explodes with flavour in your mouth. You can have thin or thick noodles with your noodles, we like it thick. A bowl goes for about RM9. If you're feeling indulgent go for the prawn noodles, you get the fish head broth with added sweetness of big prawns on top- that will set you back close to RM16. A lunch gem in Damansara Perdana.

"I like black buns and I cannot lie..."
Three guys started this joint up mid last year and decided to sell burgers that foodies would love to eat. They actually had only 6 month's worth of money to sustain and test their beliefs. The plan: hook people with a great burger in a black bun and viral this so that people will talk about it and come. It worked. They came in droves and now they are serving maximum capacity of 500+ burgers per night. This upped from about 150 burgers on their full house opening night. Co-founder Ren Yi gets happy and passionate people to work for him so it shows in the taste and service.
We recently taste tested myBurgerLab and had a fun burger experience. If you are new to this place, there are five burgers that we recommend you try to 'get' the myburgerlab unique experience.
They experiment with their burgers all the time and keep coming up with better processes for their burgers- like using a flame torch to quickly melt their cheddar cheese so that burgers come to you faster and tastier, with cheese molded on the patties. New burger inventions come out every so often. But if you are a newcomer, we'd recommend that you try some of the basics and one or two of their innovative ones. Here are some of them.
The A+ is their simple basic beef burger. Has a nice simple taste with cheddar cheese, caramelised onions and mushrooms.
Shrooms Shrooms Shrooms. If you are a meat eater and have to go the vegetarian way, a portobello mushroom will get you close to a meaty taste and their huge mushrooms will not dissappoint. The mushroom is actually breaded then fried. Topped with cheese and a combo of shitake and enoki mushrooms, this burger has a lighter taste than their meat counterparts.
The Chicken Curry Crunch burger tastes a bit like a coronation chicken sandwich. This is chicken breast pan fried and served over a curry paste sauce which is more english than indian. i.e. the curry taste is soft and has no kick. But this is goes well with the pan fried chicken burger. You don't want your burger to taste like nasi kandar now do you?
We love the toss everything in a pot type of recipe. Also known as egg bukhara, this heart-warming dish is fragrant with spices but gently so. Top it with fresh mint to be transported to the days of Caravanserais. More »
Twenty three bucks for a strip steak... in KL. Now that's a first. Mustafa Jones promises the finest smokey steaks, BBQ meats that are hand rubbed with their special dry spices then grilled over charcoal. This seals a signature smoky taste made even more tasty when hand basted with their homemade BBQ sauce. At that price for a NY strip steak which also includes some potato salad and a teensy cute garlic bun, boy do they deliver! They grill to order though so wait time sometimes can be at least 20 mins. It says so on the menu.
