    Martabak Grande

    by Ali on Wed, April 26, 2017

    Let's get this straight, martabak (with an 'a') is a popular snack in Indonesia where it resembles our own apam balik. It is thicker and usually comes with sweet fillings. Lucky for us a local Malaysian learnt the recipe from a martabak…  More »

    Ayam Penyet Bukit Lanchong

    by Edwan S. on Mon, September 28, 2015

    Shah Alam is actually pretty vast. In this vastness, therefore, it's logical to think that great eating spots are all over the state capital of Selangor. Drive away from the city centre and towards the more industrial areas and you…  More »

    Warung Leko

    by Edwan S. on Wed, August 06, 2014

    It’s easy to see the appeal of ayam penyet restaurants. Spiced chicken (and beef, and fish, etc.) is fried to a golden crisp on the outside with still fork tender meat within. Served with rice and usually fiery hot sambals, it’s…  More »

    Pecel Lele @ Syasya Syaheera

    by Acacia Daud on Fri, September 27, 2013

    The actual name of this restaurant is Syasya Syaheera – but nobody really calls it that. To most of its regular customers (hundreds of ‘em) the place is simply known as Pecel Lele. It’s famous for, you guessed it – the pecel.…  More »

    Masakan Padang was a big part of my childhood. I remember afternoons spent sitting in a plain restaurant where décor came second to the food. Plates would magically appear at the table with all sorts of delicacies. The way you do…  More »

    Dapoer Bandung

    by The Charlie on Fri, June 03, 2011

    You know a place is really good when food reviewers eat at a place thrice before getting around to writing a review - because they’re too busy eating to bother with taking photos and notes. It was still a bit of a struggle to get…  More »

    Resto Surabaya

    by The Charlie on Sat, October 09, 2010

    When I invited an Indonesian classmate to come with me, she agreed so fast you would think she hadn't had any Indonesian food for a year. As we escape college grounds during lunch hour, she declares, “It's alright, it's only class.…  More »

    Anggrek Kuring

    by Honey on Wed, September 15, 2010

    I am perpetually in search of good guramie. I remembered a short-lived Warung Guramie on Jalan P.Ramlee nestled between Beach Club and some other club. Didn't really make it. Fungsiwaty, the lovely lady who runs Anggrek Kuring shakes…  More »

    Sate Minang @ Pasar Malam Taman Melawati

    by Edwan S. on Sat, July 31, 2010

    I used to frequent the pasar malam in Taman Melawati when I was younger, always getting fascinated by the cacophony of sounds and myriad of colours. I made my way through the fruits and veg section, the butchers and the dried goods…  More »

    Restoran Rose

    by The Charlie on Wed, July 07, 2010

    A stone's throw away from the Chow Kit area, Restoran Rose is a real find. During the day, they serve pretty decent Nasi Padang fare. The Rendang is quite good, though I usually reach for the Lele (catfish) and Sambal Ijo (Green Chilly…  More »

    Bumbu Desa

    by Alexa P. on Wed, June 09, 2010

    The concept here is a bit different from the typical restaurant experience. As you walk in you are ushered to a long buffet-like counter where all the delicious food is spread out. While there are menus to order from it’s more fun…  More »
