Obanhmi @Damansara Utama.


An accidental visit to Obanhmi (a Vietnamese sandwich shop)
because Village Park was full of people.

Found a parking lot, right in front of the shop.

The high chairs and tables did not deter my mum (85 years old) as she 
climbs and bravely sits on it.

The self service orders were easy for diners to choose as they were 
clearly printed on a signboard with photos and descriptions.

The freshly baked baguette were not too long, with a nice golden brown color
 crisp crust and soft airy inside.

Bundled with fresh coriander, pickled carrot and daikon, grilled pork, 
sunny side fried egg, tomato, house made mayonnaise and Vietnamese 
chilli sauce that lingers on my palate- it was a delight to eat with every bite !

I would recommend that you do not bite too much at one go-so that you
can savor it slowly.

 We also had two types of rice paper spring rolls-freshly rolled and deep fried which 
came with two types of dipping sauce to add flavor to it and a beef stew.


 Overall an affordable and fulfilling meal.




O-Summery-fresh rice paper spring rolls wrapped with shrimp, fresh lettuce, pickled carrot and daikon and deep fried shallot - Rm8/


O-Rolly- deep fried rice paper spring rolls with minced pork, mushroom, pickled carrot and daikon...etc - RM7.50/

O-BBQ-served with grilled pork, sunny side fried egg, fresh coriander leaves, pickled carrot and daikon topped with Vietnamese chillies sauce-Rm10.50



Stew-O-beef stewed to the right consistency (not too diluted) - dipped baguette in it, to absorbs all the flavors- Rm10/

Restoran Makanan Laut Lung Seng @Tanjung Tualang.


If you happen to be around Mambang Diawan (Fairies in the Clouds)
Tanjung Tualang is just not too far away.

Restoran Makanan Laut Lung Seng is one of the earlier restaurant to 
serve freshwater prawn and is also  fully air-conditioned.

Located about 30 minutes away from Kampar town.

The main draw in  this small, sleepy hollow of Tanjung Tualang town is their 
freshwater prawn, seafood restaurants and a Sunday Pasar Malam.

 We had freshwater prawns + sea prawn (not enough of freshwater prawns)
cooked in kon chin har lok styled-very fresh, sweet, succulent and fragrant.

Boiled Cuttlefish with freshly diced green cucumber and big onion doused
in a thick, sweet and spicy Rojak-like sauce with lots of crushed peanuts.

Grouper fish head with long beans, okra, brinjal cooked in a creamy"lemak" 
spicy Indian styled curry - very appetizing and goes well with rice.

Marmite pork ribs was well marinated and tender.

House made Tofu was silky smooth-topped with a Tapioca flour reduced
brown sauce with shrimp, sliced carrot, mushroom, young baby corn and pea bean.

Overall a good spread of food for the eight of us.

Parking is OK.

Ganggangsullae Restaurant@ Desa Sri Hartamas.



Eating Korean's food seems to be the trend in major cities in Malaysia.

Mention Korean's food and kimchi is the word.

Kimchi was voted the 5th Healthiest Food in the World.

It is cabbage- fermented for months and has a spicy, salty and sourish taste.
with lots of vitamins, calcium,iron and lactobacillus to aids in
digestion (no wonder my tummy feel so nice).

Ganggangsullae Restaurant located in the Desa Sri Hartamas's neighborhood 
offers quite an extensive menu.

The restaurant was quiet with not many diners during our visit.

with lots of banchan.

Pho @ Restoran Sin Loong.


Section 17 in Petaling Jaya is a watering hole for all types of food.

This Pho stall in Restoran Sin Loong is run by a pretty Vietnamese lady.

Opened a week ago and business is good.

Located at a corner double storey shoplot-same row with 7-11.

Pho is usually serve with either beef or chicken but here, the pho is serve
with pork.
I ordered lai fun (rice noodle) and was surprised by the size of it's serving -come 
with two pieces of fat pig's tail, pig's stomach, minced pork, fresh lettuce, 
lots of coriander leaves, beansprouts in a clear, sweet peppery broth and 
garnished with lots of deep fried fragrant shallots.

@Rm6/bowl it is well worth the money.
