Paramount Garden Restaurant, PJ

Been at this place for more than 4 years already and I still love their one famous dish... heard of Loh Mee? the one with the dark brown starchy soup. I bet u did. Heard of Pan Mee? the one with flat flour noodle with anchovies (ikan bilis for you locals), black fungus, minced meat and vege? I bet u did too. But imagine u mix them both! GENIUS!!!...
Loh Mee
Ever since I came to this place and ate their signature dish.. which is the Loh Pan Mee fell in love with it. Click here for information.

Yut Kee Hainanese Kopitiam

Down in the heart of the city, you can still a small little shop that brings you back 20 - 30 years ago. A traditional coffee shop that is struggling to stay alive. Nonetheless, the customer ranges from elderly to corporate at the time I was there.

It is located opposite of Wilayah Complex, KL, Jalan Dang Wangi. Walking distance from Maytower Residences and Sheraton Imperial. It is a 70 year old coffee shop that offers authentic Hainanese Favorites.

Their coffee was pure Hainanese along with the all time favorite Hainanese Chicken Rice.

Hainanese Chicken Rice

The rice was made with full aromatic chicken stork. Simple and delicious.

 Fried Bee Hoon

This is yet another delicious traditional Fried Bee Hoon. However, it was nothing compared to the next item I ate.

 Tai Lok Mee - Yellow Fat Noodle

The Tai Lok Mee was the ultimate main course for the day. You may not want to call this if you are a health freak as it is tasty with loads of vegies, pork slices and chicken gizzard. The only missing ingredient was the qi yau cha, also known as deep fried crispy cube pork lard. It do sound disgusting but believe me, that will make the dish crunch-ily complete.

Not forgeting their freshly baked marble cake and swiss role cake. You can smell the sweet sense of pastry when they bring to the front to place it into this Historical looking cake display counter.

Rest assure the price for all these are reasonable for KL standard ranging between RM5 - RM6, depending on the dish you ordered. If they are not, the people will not queue to wait for a table and they will most definitely won't share table with strangers. 


Recommend to also try their Pork/Chicken Chop ala Hainanese. It looks good as they serve the couple who shared the table with us.
Be ware though. It will be a hot hot meal time. Literally, hot with sweat.

Saba Middle Eastern Cuisine Restaurant

I never did fancy Middle Eastern food at the beginning as I thought it will be filled with tonnes and tonnes of sugar, mountain lambs and plate filled with only Laban bread.
I was wrong.

Now, I found Saba Middle Eastern Cuisine. Although it is located in a far far away land, they are well known for their food. To be exact, Saba is located at Jalan Perdana, CBD Perdana, Cyberjaya.

They serve variety of appetizer with different cooking style for Chicken and Lamb. I have tried their Lamb Kabsa with Rice.

The Lamb is so tender and juicy at the same time. The spices used some how penetrated into the flesh. And the Middle Eastern Rice is just lengthy. 

A little thought for you, the rice from Japan is short and round. The rice from our good Malaysia and Thailand is grew to average in length and width. As we move further west to the middle east, the rice got elongated further.  

This is the Hummus with Bread. The bread comes in a pack of 5 for you to dip with the creme paste. It is deliciously filling eating this alone.

The pricing here is relatively ok for foreign food. However, don't expect much of service. Migiht be place where you can test your patience waiting for a waiter to take your order.


You will have to try their Mango Lasse. It is Pure Mango Blended with slight ice. 


Mei San Sze Chuan Restaurant

We found a reasonable priced Dim Sum Buffet @ Mei San Sze Chuan Restaurant, Quality Hotel. Yes... Quality Hotel. Many people do not know much about this place.. They are located along Jalan Raja Laut, opposite of Mara Building and next to the STAR Bandaraya LRT Station. 

The interior is pretty impressive although the entrance of this hotel doesn't look to extravagant.

Nonetheless, the Dim Sum is not too bad. Eat-All-Can.... Make sure you have keen affection for Dim Sum or else, you might not enjoy it. Oh... and also a almost pit less stomach.

Beware! Please share your food.

It is a good place to meet up and have a few hours of good chats without worrying on  over ordering Dim Sum and when the bill comes, your wallet suddenly felt empty.

Advice to come on a weekday, in particular, Monday. No Crowd. I heard as the week comes closer to the end, this restaurant's crowd grows with it, especially on Friday. Maybe IT IS the TGIF factor!!


Worth the time spend expecially to catch up with loved one. I got all the food & laughter dosage I need. 

Try not to put too much hope on having a sweet girl in Cheongsam serving you. Today, it's all about >50.

Worth A Try!
