    Malaysia is a tea producing (primarily in the Cameron Highlands) and tea drinking counrty with different kinds of hot and cold teas (like teh tahrik, Teh C Peng) around the country. And It was a such a surprise that a Taiwanese Global Bubble Tea Brand is so popular in Malaysia that it accounts for almost half of it's overseas revenues. I am talking about the Famous Taiwanese Bubble Tea Brand, CHATIME.

    It currently has more than 100 stores around Malaysia and even has 3 branches here at the Sunway Pyramid Mall. the one we went was at the Oasis Boulevard, near the Sunway Pyramid Hotel.

    Opens: 10:00 am to 11:00 pm monday to thursday
    10:00 am ti 12:00 am friday to sunday

    according to wikipedia:

    Favorite Dish: they have and almost endless array of teas (green, black, oolong, red, rice tea, etc), fruit teas and more with lots of different toppings (grass jelly, pearl, nata de coco, coconut jellt, etc.) you can choose from (which they call Varieteas!).

    Prices Range from RM 6 to 10, depending on the type of tea and type of toppings you want (you can also add extra toppings if you want).

  • Restoran Lil' Taipan: Authentic food...try the nasi lemak!

    by marshamaung Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Get here solely for the food. Very simple and authentic atmosphere, without all the fancy fanfare. If you're looking for mood, feel and atmosphere, you'll have to head elsewhere because Lil' Taipan is the kind of place which is big on good food at affordable pricing. Really, the chicken nasi lemak is one of the best that I've tasted! Apart from the nasi lemak, their mee jawa, prawn mee, mee goreng and curry mee is awesome too.

    Nice place to enjoy good food, some drinks and chit-chat with friends...

    Favorite Dish: nasi lemak and prawn mee!

    PJ: Restoran Sunrise: The BEST roast duck yet!

    by xuessium Updated Apr 4, 2011
    RestoranSunrise

    The sun rises indeed but it ain't a rooster crowing!

    The long queues of long faces is testimony to how GOOD this restaurant is with its Cantonese style Roast Duck.

    Nothing in the way of ambience - typical local eatery with tiles walls, cheap plastic chairs and grimey ceilings but gosh, the place was packed to the brim on a Saturday lunch, albeit with tables of Ang Mohs (expats no doubt) is evidence that you have reached great food heaven.

    Open Tue-Sun (11am until the ducks run out)

    Favorite Dish: Duh?! Roast Duck of course.
    Watch how skilfully the chef split over a piping hot duck straight from the roasting oven. Watch amazing powers present before you ("Heroes" anyone?)

    Don't stand too close less you get drawn in by the heavenly scent. Juices splatter everywhere as the duck was carved up in less than 5 minutes ready for the table.

    The essence of the dish: Crispy delectable skin. An explosion of flavour in the mouth. Died and gone to heaven! Tender and juicy morsels of duck meat (I have rarely seen duck roasted so tender) flowed smoothly down the gullet and suddenly you find yourself facing an empty tray, strangely craving for more.

    The only flaws? The strangely tart soup they serve with the duck as well as the impotent chilli.
    Do without them. It'll do better justice to the duck!

    YUM!!!!

    Santai Kitchen: The Best Bandung Noodle In Town!

    by babysab Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Everything on the menu taste great. And priced reasonably too. If you want to get a taste of delicious local cuisines, you can get them here. And the best thing? It's a chain restaurant available at almost every Tesco hypermarket! =) The main branch is in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Kuala Lumpur.

    Favorite Dish: Bandung Noodle - the smell of the hot and tasty gravy is enough to send you mouthwatering. A bowl is guaranteed to fulfill your noon appetite! No need for starter nor dessert! Satisfaction that will last throughout the day. I know, because I just ate that yesterday afternoon, and I'm still full! If you can't stand hot and spicy food, just inform the waiter and they will tailor the menu for you. (But you won't know what you're missing!) They also have other food on the menu, like the ever famous Fried Rice, Fried Noodle, etc, etc. You name the local cuisine, they have it here! =D

    Sate Kajang Haji Samuri: Satay - aka. Malaysian grilled meat on a stick!

    by Wild_Orchid Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ABC anyone?
    1 more image

    The famous Kajang satay (also spelled as “sate” sometimes) has arrived in Petaling Jaya. There are a number of famous satay stalls out in Kajang, and each claims to be the Best or the “Original”. Well, one of them that has successfully branched out of Kajang is Sate Kajang Haji Samuri.

    According to the Company's website (yes, they ARE that big), the founder, Haji Samuri used to work at Telecom Malaysia, till he ventured out on his own. Along with 6 workers, he set up his first gerai ("stall") at one of the satay stalls behind Stadium Kajang in 1992.

    Since then, his business has prospered and the company now employs 300 people! Among their branches are at Dengkil Rest Area, Sg Buloh Overhead Restaurant (North Klang Valley - PLUS - Expressway) and Subang Jaya.

    The newest branch is at Damansara Utama, at the row, behind the Maybank row. The shop had been done up quite nicely, it is tidy and clean, with antique clocks and old typewriters as decorations. If you ask me, I thought it looked rather English, rather than Malaysian to me, but it was the thought that counts!

    Favorite Dish:
    We tried satay chicken and satay beef, both are at only 50 sen a stick. They were a good size, and without the fatty bits that you sometimes get at the generic road-side satay vendors.

    The accompanying peanut sauce was good. For those who like their sauce with a bit of ?kick?, just add on a spoonful of the thick chili paste that is served in a separate bowl. I found this to be a great idea, because if you are dining with the kids who prefer a less spicy and milder sauce, you can skip the chili paste.

    They are rather generous with the sauce and a large bowl of sauce was given for the two of us.

    For something different: We tried a few sticks of satay rusa (deer meat) and found the texture to be similar to beef, but slightly less chewy. It was RM1.30 per stick.

    They also have satay arnab (rabbit meat), perut (cow?s stomach) and other tasty types of satay.

    They also serve fresh fruit juices, coffee and tea and a uniquely Malaysian desert called ABC or ice kacang (shavings of ice, smothered with syrup and evaporated milk, sprinkled with coloured jelly bits, chendol and chopped peanuts). Delicious on a hot summer's day! (and since every day IS a summer's day in Malaysia, what are you waiting for? LOL)


    From VT "insider" information, the best sate is to be found at the KESAS outlet:

    address: ABW 8, Perhentian Awan Besar
    Kesas Highway, Sri Petaling,
    Selangor Darul Ehsan.

    UPDATE: April 2006
    Opens for lunch and dinner, except on Fridays. Due to Friday prayers, the shop only opens from 3pm onwards. To avoid dissapointment, it is best to call first before making your way there.

    The Chutneys: Indian Food in Ultra Hip Ambience

    by Audrey118 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My brother decided to take us to this new restaurant. When we went there Jan 2004, they have been operating for past 3 1/2 months, and the business is thriving albeit in not the most hip location of the Petaling Jaya suburb. When I walked in - I was impressed with the decor, such fine details for a suburban restaurant. it has an open kitchen concept...almost like the chinese restaurant in Mandarin Oriental KLumpur. And there are lots of nice clay craft and painting for sale all over the wall.

    On the 2nd tloor there is even a lounge and bar, you can have pre dinner drink while watching Astro. Funny we were there during the semi finals of Chennai Tennis and my husband was desperately wanting to know the results. The restaurant was kind enough to switch channels much to my husband's pleasure.

    The thrid floor houses a gallery exhibiting New Delhi art work - many are for sale.

    Favorite Dish: everything is yummy here.

    I highly recommend the palak paneer which is spinach and cheese cube, and also the yummy dory fish which btw the fish was so fresh (hope it is like that when u go), and fried chicken, and also the butter chicken. I was not impressed with the lamb dish at all. The garlic naan was yummy, and so was my brother's potato flat bread. Do not have the massala tea - it is yuks.

    Italiannies @ The Curve: Decent Italian At Shopping Malls

    by Bix10 Written Aug 22, 2008

    They serve a very nice and decent portion of Italian food here. Hence, the name. It's another chain restaurant that I frequently visit but I like this location better as I like the shopping mall, generally. It's situated on a walking path and there's my favourite bar next door, which belongs to the same company as Italiannies.

    Everything is good here. Ambience and environment is just nice for the company with a bunch of friends or family. It gives that warm feeling.

    Favorite Dish: Eggplant Parmagiana, Grilled Lamb Chop, Spinach & Artichoke Formaggio, Roasted Chicken Italiannies and Tiramisu.

    Restoran Yuen Gardens (Puchong): Morning Tim Sum

    by Aidy_p Written Jun 21, 2008
    Frontage of the Restaurant

    "So what should we have for brunch today", was the call of my stomach. How about tim sum? asked my host. "Sure!" I replied almost instantly.

    One thing's for sure, if you're going for a tim sum brunch, make sure you do not have a headache that morning as going to a tim sum restaurant os a sure way to worsen your headache! Noise, noise, noise! Secondly, make sure you keep your stomach totally empty. Flush everything out from your stomach so that more can go in. Be prepared to gorge!

    Favorite Dish: I had wanted to order all that my stomach could take but the truth spoke louder than my desire. I was not that hungry. Still, we whooped down quite a good deal of food. All within 20 minutes.

    As "tim sum" originated from Canton, China, the names of the various pastries and food mentioned are in Cantonses. I'll attempt to translate them to english.

    "har kao" - shrimp dumplings, "char siew pao" - Barbecued pork bun, "tan ta" - Egg tart, "siu long bao" - soup dumpling, "siew mai" - pork dumpling, fried wanton, "woo kok" - yam puff. All these ended up in my belly. Burp!
