the royal dish fit for the Maharajahs of ancient Northern India, the strikingly gorgeous tandoori chicken on a plate.
a friend from the States says this kind of chickens is the most tasteless meat he has ever eaten halfway, ever. The above sample is from a great Indian Restaurant in Tanah Rata, Cameron Highlands.
Can find this good-looker in any full fledged Indian Restaurant
Malaysia ( or the World ) , either spiked or hanged

There is a particularly interesting and extremely busy restaurant called Pun Chun getting all the limelight. This is the one with the the large family crowds outside (getting hassled ), inside(begging for the lost wanton mee or the aphrodisiacal brown duck ) and beyond (Q-ing to let-go).
Well, we got our share over a cuppa traditional bitter black coffee creamee to perfection by the King himself (no less) thank you very much.

Its always refreshing when the latest hippiest eating joints pop up with their one-up-manship manouevers . Watch how many cool cafes have sprouted in the gleaming gigantic shopping malls of late, such as the tummy-breaking jaw-dropping lower ground KL Pavilion Food Republic .
Don't you dare accidentally drop one of those giant designer plates and bowls and shatter them into tiny pieces here for they will probably cost more than the tiny boutique ( but hawker) food you were then holding in your trembling hands !
So its always very nice if you meet a fresh little kopitiam far far away for a change. Especially if it tempts with mostly Malay kampung delights plus some Nyonya flavors.
Kopitiam ( coffee shop as in Chinese Hokkian ) refers fondly to a family run restaurant down the road where Grandma probably first met Grandpa. And the unforgettable sentimental dishes which kept them together all these tempestuous years After all they say food is love ...& yes !
the killer-dish ...good old hot black coffee ... and there you go again on a vibrant start to another round of juicy gossips , errrr you know " how can the good doctor do that . I mean what will the wife say..." , you know , that sort of things.
Mee Goreng with classic top-ups of fried egg and red chillies. Simple and nice the way she would have wanted it .
Another bountiful and top rice & chicken dish , Nasi Ayam . presented in a modern fresh style in heavy cutleries , as with the rest above.
finally the Xciting noodle wonder and all time Malaysian hawker favorite , Assam Laksa. Competently close on the heels of the world famous Penang version.
A decent and comfortable place ( slightly pricier than normal hawker food courts here in Sitiawan) just beside the Main Sitiawan-Lumut Road , after the Petronas Petrol Station.
