Stinky Tofu, Durian & Insects: Would You Try These ‘Exotic’ Foods?

Hey, guys! Been meaning to blog more, but like the stereotypical millennial, I’ve been making poor life choices lately (like staying up until 3am every day. To play Witcher 3.) But I digress.  This post was inspired by a recent hotpot dinner, where I ordered century eggs. Whenever I have them, I’m reminded of a good friend of mine and how horrified he was when … Continue reading Stinky Tofu, Durian & Insects: Would You Try These ‘Exotic’ Foods?

Taiwanese Fried Chicken and Street Snacks @ Monga, Damansara Uptown

Before the boba tea craze, there was the Taiwanese fried chicken craze. I remember a time when Taiwanese fried chicken shops were popping up everywhere around Malaysia – Hot Star, Shihlin, Fried Chicken Master, J & G… but like many ‘trendy’ foods, of these, only a handful remain. Among them is Monga, a late entrant into the market which seems to be holding its own. … Continue reading Taiwanese Fried Chicken and Street Snacks @ Monga, Damansara Uptown

Best Fried Keropok Lekor in Petaling Jaya @ PJ Seksyen 8

Keropok lekor is a popular fried fish snack in Malaysia, and you’ll often find them peddled from makeshift carts or food trucks on the street, freshly fried on the spot in a bubbling wok of hot oil. There are two kinds – the ‘crunchy’ type (or Keropok Lekor Keping) which is hard, long and crunchy, and the ‘stick’ variant (Keropok Lekor Goreng), a long tube … Continue reading Best Fried Keropok Lekor in Petaling Jaya @ PJ Seksyen 8

Taiwan : First Impressions / FengJia Night Market

Growing up, I listened to Taiwanese music from Energy/F4/Jay Chou/ F.I.R and watched Dao Ming Si on Meteor Garden like everyone else – but I’ve never thought of setting foot in Taiwan. Partly, it’s the language barrier, since I speak elementary Chinese and it’d be difficult to get around. So when my cousin suggested that we go for a fam trip there (and that he’d … Continue reading Taiwan : First Impressions / FengJia Night Market

Thai Street Food @ Mr Tuk Tuk, Sunway Pyramid

If crowds are a good indicator of how popular a restaurant is, then Mr Tuk Tuk in Sunway Pyramid certainly knows how to draw them in! During our visit for dinner on a weekday, a long line of hungry families and young working professionals could be seen snaking out from the shop, while every inch of spare space within was packed to the brim with … Continue reading Thai Street Food @ Mr Tuk Tuk, Sunway Pyramid

Taste Better: One Bite Durian Puff

  Taste Better’s tagline is ‘Once Tasted, Remember Always’.   Awkward grammar aside, I think that sums it up pretty well. These petite little pastry puffs are a delightful snack, especially the durian flavoured ones. The exterior is light and fluffy, hiding a creamy durian centre, which oozes out when you bite into them. They also come in flavours like Yoghurt and Malaysian fruits like … Continue reading Taste Better: One Bite Durian Puff

Taiyakie House – Cheesy Croissant Taiyaki, SS15 Subang

So there’s a viral post going around the Internet about this place selling cheesy croissant Taiyaki in SS15, Subang.  DAT CHEEZE. How does one even resist?  S and I went to check it out after work last week and got the Double Cheese Taiyaki which they’re famous for. It looked a lot different from the pictures, lol. This is why people put that ‘for illustration … Continue reading Taiyakie House – Cheesy Croissant Taiyaki, SS15 Subang

Beef Panini @ Wheeloaf Food Truck

The food truck culture is growing in the Klang Valley like mushrooms in the rain – not that I’m complaining! With the cost of everything going up, I guess it’s cheaper to run a mobile food truck instead of a traditional brick and mortar business. While on assignment at Putrajaya yesterday, I spotted one parked outside the Putrajaya Corporation building. Wheeloaf serves freshly pressed paninis and grilled cheese sandwiches. Feeling … Continue reading Beef Panini @ Wheeloaf Food Truck
