The seafood restaurant specialises in fish and chips, but they also offer a variety of other Western dishes as well, such as pasta, salads and pizzas. Nautical themed decor featuring lots of blue, wood … Continue reading Review: Fish & Co @ Main Place USJ
Cor Blimey! A British expression to express surprise – and an apt name for this fantastic chippy in Subang. I’ve heard a lot of good things about the place, and finally decided to drop by for lunch with N over the weekend. Forget about generic fish and chip joints in the malls, where they serve you soggy, reheated chips, and the fish taste like they’ve … Continue reading Review: Cor Blimey, SS15 Subang – The Best British Fish N Chips In Town!
Anyone who has been to Bali will know about the island’s most famous pork ribs – the Naughty Nuri franchise.
