1. Zheng Kee chicken rice

Situated in Taman Kok Doh(Segambut), one of the better one out there, will def revisit on and off although it is really quite expensive
segambut Zheng kee

2..Restoran Riverview Small Village

This restaurant been around for ages, looks good but tasted just okay, don’t think any of the dishes warrant revisit, all taste abit MSG-y

3. Gu Xiang Pan Mee road side stall, Taman Kok Doh (just short walk away from zheng kee chicken rice)
Their pan mee is not quite nice, more memorable is their dessert: many variety at reasonable price and not too sweet, will revisit

4. Hainanese Chicken Rice 传统海南鸡饭

In Batu 4 Jln Ipoh

To me, this is very nice chicken rice, even overheard diner say this is best chicken rice in Jln ipoh & Sentul. It doesn’t need long wait like Zheng kee and cheaper. Must try!

5. Jinjang pan mee

Have this since my primary school day, the dough is thicker and chewier, different from other pan mee, very nice, this stall can’t be found in Google map. They are open Monday-Saturday 2:30pm – 10pm. Same row as Tuaa Mark pan mee in Jinjang, must try!

6. 巷仔海南鸡饭 Street Hainan Chicken Rice Shop (Metro Prima)

the soy sauce underneath chicken is slightly sweet which does not sit well with me who prefer savoury, overall Taman Kok Doh Zheng Kee & Jln Ipoh batu 4 chicken rice is better than this one, although this one is visited by famed HK star

7. KL Four Season hotel’s Malaysia Boleh food court

the cendol here is among my top 3 (do ask them for less less sugar, cos less sugar is still like normal which is quite sweet), one con is parking in surrounding area is expensive, we normally park inside avenue K.

the wan tan mee is so so, the scoop-your-self green cili is the one attracted me to it four seasons kl food court four seasons kl food court four seasons kl food court

8. Restoran Argyle’s beef noodle. Google Map

overall, they are still quite generous with their beef portion, their broth is more light so might not be strong/flavourful enough for some, worth a tryjalan ipoh beef noodle jalan ipoh beef noodle

9. Miyatake Sanuki udon, google map

udon are quite heart in portion and yummy. Won’t say their chicken karaage is very nice but gotta try at least once, it is very tender and crispy, almost feel like you are eating fish and chips as it is quite big piece as well, I prefer karaage with more bite.mont kiara sanuki udon mont kiara sanuki udon mont kiara sanuki udon mont kiara sanuki udon

10. Nasi Lemak Angah, google map

overall, the nasi lemak is nice and generous portion(very generous with kacang and ikan bilis), price is relatively cheap as well which could explain the crowd, will revisitnasi lemak angah nasi lemak angah nasi lemak angah nasi lemak angah

11. Tuaa Mark pan mee, google map

Among the top pan mee in jinjang, quite nice, and very generous with my added shitake mushroom, but it just doesnt have the unique slight chew dough texture of my childhood-pan-mee just few shop away(which unfortunately don’t open on Sundays), but had to go to this Tuaa Mark instead. Maybe will try another pan mee in jinjang(Xiu Ye Mao)jinjang tuaa mark pan mee jinjang tuaa mark pan mee jinjang tuaa mark pan mee

12. Xiao Ye Mao pan mee, google map

We order big portion of noodle. The portion is big and taste ok(for my soup version). Whereas hubs give minus 2 stars for his gon1 lou1 version, he say the soy sauce is quite tasteless and he expected it to have his favourite anchovies. Overall won’t return for this. Online did recommend mixed curry version which we didn’t tryxiao ye mao jinjang pan mee xiao ye mao jinjang pan mee xiao ye mao jinjang pan mee

13. Tian Ya Ker pan mee in Chow Kit, google map

very nice pan mee, the dough is rolled by the strong old lady

Pizza Hills, near to Kuah Town(open 4pm-10pm), very hard to find with no signage, we made 2 wrong turns in the narrow hill road with steep “cliff”. I think we might try park at foot of hill and walk up as driving up there is quite scary, one wrong move and your car could fall to side “cliff” of the road
langkawi itinerary 2022
very tiny restaurant, must call ahead to make reservation. No menu and what pizza you get is depended on what they churn out, thankfully both pizza flour suits me and I got my favourite mushroom

our last 2 night in Cenang Plaza Beach hotel, this is among the newer and more modern looking hotel in Cenang area, about RM210 per night for king bed seaview room, with nice balcony(for us to dry our cloths and tapao and eat in balcony), will stay in this hotel again, only downside is their wifi is very slow at night. This hotel is under same management as Cenang mall which is just opposite, they will give you a season parking card to park behind cenang mall

langkawi itinerary 2022

langkawi itinerary 2022
walking up, they have handrails all the way to the top
langkawi itinerary 2022
I prefer Temurun cos there are quite many trees here around trail, I scare suddenly some snake etc, and I think there was a tiny snake on the handrail on the way down, so scary, and we were the only one on the top part of the falls, again some unknown snake or body parts coming out from water, wild imagination. But if you like the whole waterfall to yourself, this is definitely the one

going back home

Paretto seaview restaurant looks not bad

Sufra a North Indian restaurant, their aloo paratha (served with small tub of yogurt) is very nice. I tried their chickpea Channa marsala is quite nice as well
langkawi itinerary 2022

langkawi itinerary 2022
here we tapao PutoMayo’s seafood fried rice and Sufra aloo paratha, chapatti & chickpea curry, then dined in our seaview(treeview) balcony. The seafood(squid & prawn) in fried rice from Putomayo is not fresh, but Sufra’s one is really tasty

below is G Mart in Chenang where we found our favourite Rum Raisin Ritter’s sport and sold for less than RM6

below our chocolate loots, not as much as I imagined considering amount of shop we went. Overall, recommend to go RAMS Home Decor in Kuah for cheapest Choc, and if you want to compare price with another shop, can visit Teo Soon Fatt in Kuah as well. We would go G Mart cenang as well just to get our favourite Rum Raisin choc
For alcohol, just go to few shop in Chenang to compare price or see the different variety each shop carry(try these 3 shops which offer good price: Chenang Mall, Warisan and shop next to Underwater world), alcohol in Kuah(TSF & Billions) is more expensive. I buy them mainly for cooking(red,white wine, vodka can be used for spaghetti Bolognese) and baking(rum, bourbon, cognac, bourbon)

My favourite ice cream: Breyer’s

finally my favourite ice cream from my study days in Canada is found is Malaysia

i always buy their Natural vanilla ice cream with specks of vanilla bean(the lower left pictured below), very yummy when paired with fresh strawberries, which I always do.

it is cheaper than haagen daaz, and quite almost equally yummy, not too sweet, not too airy(which most cheaper ice cream are) and you can also see ingredient list of their vanilla ice cream is among those with shortest list of ingredient which is a good thing, mainly made of fresh milk & cream.

Breyers ice cream

Breyers ice cream

cost RM40++ for 1.4L (cheaper than Haagen Daaz), so far I can only find it in Jaya Grocers in pearl point, and not other branches of JG.
