Eco Shop, Main Place Mall USJ : Everything For RM2.10

Dollar stores, also known as variety shops, are places that sell inexpensive household products for cheap, usually from lesser known brands. In Malaysia, we have RM2 shops, which have risen in popularity in recent years. Consumers today are much more budget-savvy, and don’t mind buying from these shops if it translates to more savings. There are even viral tutorial videos on how to spruce up … Continue reading Eco Shop, Main Place Mall USJ : Everything For RM2.10

Sushi Zanmai, Main Place Mall USJ

Back when I worked in PJ, I used to frequent Sushi Zanmai at Jaya Shopping Centre, which was just a 10-minute-drive from my office. I went there so often the server could anticipate my order even before I placed it (one plate of fried mushrooms, one bowl of rice and one portion of chuuka idako. Lol.) Unfortunately, I haven’t been back since transitioning to a … Continue reading Sushi Zanmai, Main Place Mall USJ

Walking Tour: Main Place Mall, USJ

Virtual walking tours have been around for some time on Youtube, but I think they really took off during the pandemic, since everyone is stuck wherever we are with no place to go. It’s times like these that make one appreciate the Internet and the amazing connectivity that we have today – you can basically ‘travel’ the world without having to put one foot out … Continue reading Walking Tour: Main Place Mall, USJ

November Eats – West St Cafe PJ 8 &Fish N Co Main Place

For lunch on weekdays, I usually walk 10minutes to the shops to get a cheap mixed rice meal. But once in awhile, when I’m feeling lazy, I’ll spend a little more on something nice at West St Cafe, which is just downstairs from my office building. They used to serve only coffee and snacks, but have recently introduced lunch as well. The menu changes everyday. … Continue reading November Eats – West St Cafe PJ 8 &Fish N Co Main Place

New Shopping Mall in Town – USJ Da:Men

We heard that there’s a new mall in the neighbourhood, so the fam and I hopped on to Da: Men in USJ for lunch over the weekend. Many of the shops are still vacant but there are loads of food stalls and beauty parlours selling makeup, cosmetics, designer boutiques and hipster-ish stuff. Foodies and girls will like it here! The lower ground floor is an open … Continue reading New Shopping Mall in Town – USJ Da:Men

All You Can Eat Korean Buffet – San Nae Deul, One City USJ

Update 2021: This restaurant is permanently closed. You know what they say about ‘authentic’ restaurants – they’re the ones serving a customer base made up of that particular cuisine’s ethnic group. So when Grace and I walked into San Nae Deul at One City, USJ, we knew we were in for a good K-BBQ experience. On our left and right were Korean customers jabbering away in … Continue reading All You Can Eat Korean Buffet – San Nae Deul, One City USJ

The Sheperdoo, One City USJ

Update: This branch is permanently closed. I met up with my ex-colleague N for dinner recently. After walking a good half hour around One City in USJ, mulling over a very first world problem (what to eat), we stopped at a cosy-looking place called The Sheperdoo.  A quick glance at the menu revealed that they served Mexican /Latin American food such as nachos, burritos, Tex-Mex … Continue reading The Sheperdoo, One City USJ

Master Room Pub @ One City USJ

Update: This restaurant is permanently closed. One City USJ opened a few years ago, but it never really took off : probably coz most of the Subang crowd flocked to the much nearer, more neighbourhood-oriented The Main Place. Despite having an interesting design, especially at the rooftop’s Skypark, the place is quite dead, even on weekend nights. No and I were here to catch Inside Out and … Continue reading Master Room Pub @ One City USJ
