Quickie Review

About a week or so of Ramadhan has passed and we've been checking out PaRams (Pasar Ramadhans) in and around KL. This year we're trying to check out the less well known ones (you know, in comparison to the big ones like Bangsar or Shah Alam).

Our colleague, Meen, pointed us out to Section 7 of Kota Damansara. A little PaRam has been there for awhile, right behind a Shell station. So we checked it out and here is our Top 5!


Street Burrito Malaysia



This fledgling stall is testing out their burritos at the PaRam in hopes of setting up a shop (in TTDI they said). Their burrito features tasty, savoury and perfectly cooked rice inside a warm and soft tortilla. The chicken is griddled and remained juicy even when bought earlier. A touch of (very) tangy salsa rounds it off.

PaRam Season Is Coming!

Quickie Review

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.

Nasi Lemak @ Al-Rafi Bistro

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…  Continue reading »

Bingsu: A Korean ‘ABC @ Caffebene

Quickie Review

Caffebene is a coffee chain-store that hails from South Korea and just opened two outlets in Malaysia: one in Sunway Pyramid and another at Solaris Mont Kiara. We first got wind of it on social media. People were sharing pictures of something called a 'bingsu' (or bingsoo, or patbingsu). They looked yummy so of course we checked it out.


Clockwise from top: Cookies'n'cream, Strawberry and Coffee..

So what's a Bingsu? Well, the full name 'patbingsu' actually means 'red beans with ice'. So in all actuality, a bingsu is a Korean ABC! That's not putting it down though because they're quite excellent. Caffe Bene has three varieties: strawberry, coffee and cookies'n'cream. They all consist of shaved ice with a butt-load of sweet red beans. The toppings of course are what differentiates the flavours. Strawberry Bingsu is loaded with strawberries in stewed, chopped, syrup and sorbet form. Very refreshing. The Coffee…  Continue reading »

Ana Burger aka The Green Apple Burger

Quickie Review

In Melawati is a stall that is green. Not with envy. It’s just, literally, green. Not without good reason, though. Ana Burger in Taman Melawati is famous for putting green apples in their burgers. So, yes, green is pretty much their theme colour. Ana Burger has been around for awhile. Just mention ‘burger green apple’ in Taman Melawati and I bet everyone in the area would have heard of it. It's what they’re famous for, after all.


Green is definitely a thing here.

The stall used to be quite tricky to find, but they’ve since moved to a more accessible spot in Taman Melawati.

The green apples came into their recipe when Kak Ana’s husband decided that cucumbers and tomatoes were too mushy and would make the burgers soggy. So in came the fruit, and the rest is history, we people say. The burgers here are, of course, expertly griddled and prepared.

Smashies Burger

Quickie Review

Mr. Will Soh got tired of the rat race and decided to travel the world to do a little soul searching. The lingering question of ‘what brings people together?’ persisted on his mind as he bag-packed in a lot of countries including the UK, Sri Lanka and Japan. Then, according to his story, on one rainy night in the USA, he went into a diner and ordered a burger. That burger, in it’s own delicious way, reminded him of the best things in life: family and friends… and food.


Mr. Will Soh, founder of Smashies Burger

So that’s when he came back and decided to bring people together through food. Through burgers, really. Smashies Burger is his baby and ever since they opened their doors about a year and a half ago, they’ve been serving happiness with their burgers.



The name comes from the ‘smash’ method.…  Continue reading »

Bob Republic

Quickie Review

Bob was one of the first people to fire up a street grill and make homemade patties in USJ. He uses natural ingredients in his patties and also makes his own sauces such as the ever popular black pepper sauce. He also has two kinds of buns, a charcoal and a focaccia bun.

This is called Dear Lover, grilled beef burger with tongues of beef bacon within.

Another thing that Bob is famous for are their ribs. This he grills up and bastes them with sauces. There's a bit of a tex-mex flavour to his menu with Nachos served as sides or even in his burgers. What's also delicious here is the homemade salsa that he includes in his burgers.

Try the ribs, one of the cheapest in Klang Valley

The homemade patties are charcoal…  Continue reading »
