looks doesn't matter

coz its personal
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

Bidor's quick fix

Bidor is a mini town off the North-South Highway and a popular stop for transit travellers on R & D ( Recharge & Discharge ) before the last lap to Pangkor Island. Here you can pick up quite a variety of the famed chicken biscuits, fresh mountain produce , organic , genuine or otherwise ( petai , durians and some other fruits like the seedless guava & red jambu ).

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).
If you can't stand the incessant ( or irritating) Durian Man outside ( he will entice you no end with the piercing aroma of the golden fruit ) , then you can always go deeper to the terrible inside ( alongside the noisy Mama screaming to the overhyperactive kids just before the mis-impatient Papa shouts to the deaf waiters one last time ).

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.

an oldy Modern coffee shop

noodles & rice , breakfast for 3

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 !
vice versa.

as you step inside this place , the imposing black and white giant posters and the ancient Hang Li Po era of solid marble tables and stiff chairs will draw you straight into decades reversed.

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 .

the Mother of all Malaysian rice. Traditional Nasi Lemak . All the right things are there !

Fragrant , fluffy and spicy.

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.
Surprisingly it is wi-fi enabled so you can catch your email on the go in this still as-yet Starbucks-less Manjung District , as you next rush towards your pulsating date at the Lumut Jetty for your Romantic Escapades !

... a truly amazing place by the dusty roadside, crowded with hungry customers coming in by the carloads. all ready 2 Q .

Malay Restaurant.

unmistakeable Masakan Melayu sambal and ulam (raw greens ) with mutton & curry gravy

( to make 3 ) , RM14
Restoran Ah Hing , another Fuzhou Cuisine Specialist ( and super wedding caterer )

Westernised Lumut

While on assignment in Lumut lately , we were recommended to one or two cafes, bistros and bars including yes ! a steakhouse . These are some of the interesting sights and sounds ( + colors ) that went our way in this surprisingly Europeanised tourist town. At least in 2 Cafes & Bars here we have noted over a few nights that the expatriate community comprising many Englishmen dominates the bar counter and , well shall we say the tables too .

the still growing Lumut Waterfront ...
...recently a covered state-of-the-art walkway from the Lumut Bus Station sprouted overnight ( literally) and has now reached the Lumut Jetty ! Much to the convenience of pedestrians and bane to impatient motorists ( you win some lose some).

A handsome basket of the good looking garlic breads , a bsg favorite after dark , found in Jook Joint Bistro in the town centre. Crispy and hot they came.

their popular sirloin steak ( wonder what the loin is there for ) , rare and mean. RM26.

Hopping over to Seri Manjung we hammered this rib-eye ( where eye ?) from the award winning Fullpann Steak House . Also RM26.
Since we are all happy friends we shall not engage in a cowboymeathouse kind of shootout this time ! ...but more will come soon...

chicks in Malls

Deli is short for delicatessen , a kind of casual eating place where the food is pre-prepared/pre-cooked . Usually situated in busy streets or Malls such as this one here in Subang Parade, Subang Jaya.

Sometimes one gets stunned with this pretty one-legged boast . ...possibly the world's best...!

can read or not ?
... oh well , lets give it a shot then ! ( giving in to subtle sweet youngish pressu.. errr pleasure )

convenient pictorial menu , seems so many choices...

at about RM 11 each plate ,
the days where it ruled supreme in Bangsar Shopping Centre and 1 Utama is "possibly" long gone...what with the hip hop fresh sexy cafes sprouting all over now in 2 Utama , Sunway Pyramid, KLCC , Pavilion etc, etc.
You can still give it a try though , for the experience (past glory possibly) , or just to answer that question of "possibly the best ! " ( ya , why not ?)
