A. Recommended

1. Alison kopitiam in Sri petaling on a Sunday morning.

Went there few times for the nasi lemak which is quite good, the char kuey tiaw here is not bad (fat bean sprout, but I their siham is fried into the noodle and not the partial-cook type, which could indicate their cockles is not fresh enough on that day), but overall the CKT is still a must try here



Nyonya Nasi lemak store


RM7 for above, add rice, onion ikan bilis, potato, 1egg, enough to satisfy my Nasi lemak craving


the above is from 2nd visit, also RM7, same items as before but without adding ikan bills sambal.

Below 2 items are from Good Tea restaurant(across the road from Alison coffeeshop), items recommended by a famous YouTuber – Elmo. The pork stomach yee Mee I find is so so, firstly I don’t the soup pack the expected strong peppery punch, it is nothing worth having. Whereas the wat tan hor it is normal tasty,it is big portion and taste not bad, but nothing which I will revisit(unlike the selayang Pan Heong’s


2. Rotiman bakery, one of the better bakery out there which has nice yam bun, Japanese sea salt bun and varieties of sourdough, all their bun are quality stuff. Online has some rave review for their gula melaka coconut shred bun (which I am yet to try), japanese shokupan danish bread loaf, thick-cut wholemeal loaves, cheese tart etc


B. Not recommended

Below are shop which food is not so good, won’t go again:

1. A Chinese shop (Hong Kong Roaster) which sells roast duck/chicken rice/noodle for less than RM10, this shop is owned by Good Taste restaurant(which has many branches), not sure the difference. Haven’t dine here but the items look not bad. After dining here, the portion of the meat is quite small, the egg is not jammy type as shown on menu, but normal boiled egg, overall nothing outstanding for paying higher price than normal hawker stall






C. Yet to try

Below are food items which I haven’t try, but like to try 1 day.

1. Famous Tawaf Nasi Lemak which has really long lines when we wanted to tried it on a Sunday morning, want to try it one day. They seem to open on some Sundays, cos it is not always open when we pass by on Sundays.


2. House of Fishball 漁鄉丸

3. Ding Xiang Sang Nyuk Noodles 鼎香生肉面


4. Omega Pork Noodle 猪肉粉 Sri Petaling

5.Menya Hanabi

6.十二月肉骨茶 December Bak Kut Teh @ 大城堡 Sri Petaling

7. Restaurant Ye Look 以勒海鲜楼 afternoon chicken rice stall best to reach here at 11am when their roast pork is ready, we reach 10:45am and roast pork not ready yet

Breakfast in restaurant Sun Sea recently, their pork noodle has detoriated, no more small squid and shrimp, and not even pork lard oil on top for my order, aiks

Online has some good review on pan mee, Penang white curry mee, char kuey tiaw and the bakery items (piggy bun) in this shop.
In another visit recently, I ordered pan mee in the restaurant. The noodle texture is good, but the soup is very msg laden, felt so thirsty after eating it. The piggy bun is worth a try as it is just baked and piping hot.

Char kuey tiaw is quite good, definitely should order.


Recipe: whipping cream with gelatin

I used half teaspoon of gelatin for 340g whipping cream but it is still not so stable, as it is melty 20 minutes in room temp.

melt 1/2 teaspoon gelatin in 1 1/2 tablespoons of water. Whip 340g of cream on medium speed just until the beaters leave a trail, then slowly stream in the gelatin and beat on high until soft peaks form.

will have to try 1 tsp gelatin for 440g cream next time.
