    Waffle Stop: Waffles and ice cream!!

    by SWFC_Fan Written Dec 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I stopped off at Waffle Stop for a late breakfast one morning during my visit to Kuala Lumpur in December 2005.

    I had a craving for something sweet and, upon seeing the Waffle Stop kiosk, I couldn't resist ordering a large Belgian waffle with ice cream!

    My ice cream topped waffle (named an "Ice Creamery") and a "Premium Chocolate" blended ice drink cost approximately RM13 (2.00GBP / 3.00 Euros) and it was worth every Ringgit! It certainly satisfied my sweet tooth.

    A huge variety of savoury and sweet toppings are available on Waffle Stop waffles, from garlic mushrooms and chicken to strawberry jam and peanut butter. They also offer a large selection of coffees, milkshakes, smoothies and soft drinks.

    Smaller waffles on sticks can also be purchased to take-away and eat on the move.

    The Waffle Stop kiosk is located on Bintang Walk, on the sidewalk close to the shopping malls. It has a dozen or so tables under the shade of umbrellas.

    Nando's: Portuguese chicken peri-peri

    by SWFC_Fan Written Dec 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I ate at Nando's one evening during my trip to Kuala Lumpur in December 2005.

    There are several branches of Nando's throughout KL - I ate at the one close to Puduraya bus station.

    The restaurant's speciality is Portuguese style Chicken Peri-Peri, and they offer an excellent value "Peri Meri Meal".

    The Peri Meri Meal consists of:

    Starter: Cream of brocolli soup with garlic bread;

    Main: 1/4 flame grilled chicken with a choice of peri-peri coating (lemon and herb / mild / hot / very hot) and apple and walnut rice. The menu suggests that those who aren't familiar with peri-peri start with the lemon and herb coating and work their way up to the very hot. I opted for the "hot" coating...and it didn't disappoint!

    Dessert: Mango sorbet (served in a small tub with a plastic spoon).

    The food was very high quality, very tasty and the total price for the 3 courses was just RM11.90 ( 2.00GBP / 3.00 Euros).

    I ordered a jug of Coca Cola (equivalent to 4 large glasses), for a cost of just RM9.95 and it was much-needed thanks to the burning effects of the peri-peri sauce!

    The atmosphere is informal and the decor is minimalist (wooden tables, no tablecloths) - just the way I like it!

    The service was friendly and efficient.

    Steamboat (thanks mansionion!): For those who like it CHILLI!

    by travie Updated Dec 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This fantastic little place is located on Jalan Alor and it is well worth checking it out. From what i could gather it is mainly a seafood type place (as the name would suggest) although it did do other meals like frog (which came as a surprise to me!). I was just casually sitting at the back of the restaurant when the owner approached me and pointed to the front of the store and said 'fog?'. I thought to myself 'well actually, there may be a little smog outside but i don't know about fog' but i just nodded and smiled. Anyway, the lady could see that i might have been having trouble understanding her so she led me to the front of the shop and pointed to a cage on the ground and repeated 'fog?'. I was still confused until i looked down and saw all of these frogs bouncing around inside the cage and gently declined her recommendation. I settled on calamari and fried fish and they were both absolutely delicious...although be warned that if you are a little bit sensitive to food with a bit of chilli on top then you may want to keep your bottle of water handy (a can of cola just did not do the job for me!). The chef here loves his chilli and wants to spread the word. So for me i actually had calamari (with purple chilli that i thought was onion until i took a bite and got a surprise) and fried fish (with something that was very spicy). But all in all the food was very good, the atmosphere simple but warm and the people that owned the store were extremely friendly and polite.

    Suria KLCC: The Best Bar with the Best Food

    by Firestar24 Written Nov 12, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Actually, This is Santini's bar which is at the bottom of the Petronas Towers. We ate here about three times during a five day stay and we got drunk here about twenty times during a five day stay!

    The staff are fantastic & friendly, remember what you drink and will always offer good advice and interesting stories. Please say "Hello" to Viknus Warran if anyone visits this bar and ask him where our postcard is!

    The food is really good and well priced - they have a brick pizza oven behind the bar and you watch the chef make your pizza.

    Favorite Dish: I usually try something different every time I go to a restaurant - but I loved the Avaccado Chicken here so much that I ordered it every time.

    Jonathan's the same. It's our policy never to eat in the same place twice and if we do we definately have to try something different... but he just couldn't get enough of those calzone pizzas!

    Santini's Suri & his tower beer - how happy was Jonathan?! The pizza oven Plastered - those guys are only there to stop me f New staff! Jonathan & Viknus Warran

  • Chili's Grill & Bar: Mexican-American food

    by hez28 Written Oct 15, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I used to go to Chili's back in the days when i was in the US of A. Now living in Kuala Lumpur, it's hard to get really authentic american style bbq. There's plenty of local restaurants that serve american-style this, american-style that, but sadly, they all taste the same. But because Chili's is American-owned, it's the closest to authentic as you can get. (Actually there's T.G.I.F but that's another tip :P ) So do go to Chili's for authenticity!

    Favorite Dish: My fav would have to be the margarita grilled chicken - served with rice, black beans, tortilla strips & pico de gallo.

    The windmill restaurant

    by victorwkf Written Oct 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is an interesting restaurant called Restoran Windmill which is literally shaped like a windmill. It is located just across the Subang Sheraton Hotel and Towers at the Subang suburb of Kuala Lumpur. I did not have the chance to try the food here, but the exterior windmill structure looks interesting though :)

    Street vendors and hawkers: Street vendors at Bukit Bintang

    by victorwkf Written Oct 8, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You should try the local food from the roadside street vendors along the famous Bukit Bintang area near to Chinatown. The local food here is cheap and delicious, and famous dishes include the Hokkien noodles, Bak Kut Teh (pork parts in delicious herbal soup and rice), fried oyster omelette, BBQ seafood etc. Best time to go is at night and have your dinner, followed by shopping at nearby shopping area.

  • Meng Kee Grill fish: Best fish you ever ate

    by calamansi Written Sep 29, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another one in Jalan Alor. Very casual. Don't expect silver service. You must try the "chicken fish", so yummy you'll want the recipe. Look for the owner, tiny Ms Meng Kee. It is the second Meng Kee restaurant on the left, coming down the hill. the first is run by her sister, and is also good. Don't go on Tuesday night, as Meng Kee isn't there.

    You must also try grilled stingray fins, and butter prawns.

    Malaysian food, especially Chinese Malaysian, is the best in the world, and is relatively inexpensive.

    Favorite Dish: Grilled chicken fish. Coated in a special sauce, then grilled. Superbly fresh and delicious.
    A dining companion, also a keen spear fisherman, thinks it is elephant fish. Everyone loves it.

    Pelita Samudra Restaurant: Pelita Samudra Restaurant

    by l_joo Updated Sep 29, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For those who are sleepless at night, I suggest a good place to waste time and relax, probably the oldest restaurant in Malaysia started as a street vendor since year 18xx in Penang Pelita Samudera Restaurant is 24 hours open for public, really comfortable environment, Indian-Muslim foods, NO alcohol, midnight gals coming here were in super-sexy dress up probably on way home after some heavy drink elsewhere. The average meal is RM5.00 per person, especially good for watching LIVE football from the English Premiership every weekend and the European Champions League at 3am in the morning (Malaysian time), occasionally WWE wrestling but no cricket or baseball. Typical Malaysian foods, hot and spicy, I especially like the fried chicken, cuttlefish, rojak Singapore and Tandoori chicken. You can sit whole day and night if you want, toilet is big and clean, car park is free and location is most convenience at opposite Avenue-K, only some 150 meters walk from KLCC.

    Seating Capacity 480 pax. Parking Private car park for 30 cars.

    Business Hours 24 Hours. Menu 60 items

    Coliseum Cafe: Great steaks at a good price

    by southsearock Written Sep 27, 2005

    I don't think this restaurant has changed since it first opened around 70 years ago, except thank goodness for A/C. I was told when here that one of the waiter has worked there for 45 years, so he can probably tell you of any changes himself . Don't expect anything fancy, it is worn around the edges but everything is made up for with the atmosphere. Have a drink in the friendly bar first and then go through for the best sizzling steak in town, be warned you don't seem to have any choice in wearing the bib to protect your clothes.

    Favorite Dish: Steaks and more steaks are mainly on the menu, try the fantastic sizzling steak and wear the bib!

    Californian Steak House: Eat well

    by AnttiPeltonen Written Sep 14, 2005

    A high class restaurant with a very good service and even better food. (With a few visits the waiters know you and the service gets even better - if possible)

    Favorite Dish: Pepper steak - very common I know, but just taste it!
    And it costs less than 6 euros...
