This local Sarawak noodle name, came about in their founder
personal belief in consistently making sincere face to face
connections with his customers became the backbone of his
business philosophy, and eventually inspired the name of his
restaurant; Face To Face Noodle House.
Besides Sarawak noodles in various variations they also serve
the all time favorites pan mee in so many different styles in their
My first time here in their Dataran Ara Damansaaara branch.
The restaurant is air conditioned with smoking seating outside.
I ordered the original Sarawak Kolok mee- springy noodle with minced
pork tossed in lard oil and char siew (abit coarse) with pork balls
and add on of sayur manis in a eggy broth.
A suitable combination.

Been wanting to try this Famous Seremban Favourites Restaurant
char siew for quite awhile.
I will pass by here whenever I go for my prawn noodle fix a few
shops away and it's always packed.
Today we were early and ahead of the lunch hour crowd.
We ordered dry mee pok (thick flat noodle) tossed in lard oil
and topped with minced pork and spring onion with add on of
caramelized, sweet, tender and melt in the mouth char siew (BBQ
Pork belly) too small pieces.
Parking is quite a hassle.

For me, Korean food is kimchi, grilled meats especially pork
and lots of refillable banchan.
Watching Korean food drama has some influence on me to want
and try out Korean food.
Tonight dinner @Apple Samgyupsal is a first for my family.
We ordered two sets with one that consists of premium cuts of
pork (marinated with apple base)and unlimited ramyun which
we have to cook ourselves
The best part of grilling the meat over charcoal fire is the thick
piece of steel griddle which does not create or char any oily
or greasy layer on the cooked meat.
The sore point is we have to replenish everything ourselves.
Parking is a problem unless you are early.
Pretty affordable and fulfilling meal.

My first taste of Botak Nasi Lemak was when my friend
Jessica, who resides in SS3, tarpaued (takeaway) a few
packets of nasi lemak (Rm2/packet) with it's logo for us to try out.
It's stand out from others because of it's spicy addictive sambal
and fragrant rice.
In this food court there is also a famous and affordable Indian rice.
I ordered a plate of fragrant and fluffy coconut flavored nasi lemak
with a piece of crispy, juicy fried chicken drumstick
which came with more add on like a fried egg, anchovies, cucumber,
more sambal and roasted peanuts @Myr8.
A wholesome meal.

Lum mee aka "Birthday noodle" is a must in Peranakan
household during festive season.
This Lum mee stall located in O&S Restaurant is one of personal favorite.
Thick yellow noodle topped with slivers of chicken meat, prawn slices,
beansprout and garnished with chopped spring onion is then
doused in a light starchy egg gravy with add-on of five pieces of
crunchy and succulent prawn wanton.
A small cup of spicy numbing sambal for dip.
A plate of gooey and comforting goodness to begin the day.

This Foodcourt in Section 17/1A is quite small but airy
with about 10 food and drinks stalls.
This iconic Char koay teow and Koay teow th'ng stall was
started by the present owner's father (in the 70's)
The fishball and fishcake are homemade - the consistency
of it depends on the freshness of the fishes that he buys.
The fried noodle is TeoChew style - black in colour, oily with egg,
fishcake slices, beansprout and siham (with or without chillies)
I like to eat it together with a bowl of fishball/fishcake soup.
The Char koay teow is nothing special but it is passable.
Parking is free around the area.

After two days in the kampung, where life is slow and relaxing,
I felt so rejuvenated.
It's Monday and time for work, back in the city.
Lunch of Chee Chap Tong at Kedai Makanan dan Minuman
Sun Tho Yuen, a hidden gem in Seri Setia ,is always comforting.
It's a stand alone stall and manned by a husband and wife team.
The Chee Chap Tong is a clear and "ching" pig's bone/meat
broth - easy on the palate, filled with pig's innards, meatballs and
tender chee chang yoke.
Accompanied by two pieces of soya sauce braised silky smooth tofu,
boiled egg and a bowl of fluffy yam rice -oh ! so hearty !
Parking is by the side of the one way road.

Restoran Zong Meng was once a thriving dai chow place
located along the main road in Tapah town.
Now, even though he is a one man chef, he can easily whips
up a five dishes lunch or dinner in no time.
He earned his stripes working under Hong Kong chefs
when he was working in Belgium.
Watching him prepares the condiments for cooking with extra
fast hands was a delight.
Seeing him in action, pan frying, steaming, stir frying and flipping
he wok under roaring flame was like a culinary magic !!
Steamed river pak soh koong (white whisker cat fish) - firm fleshy
that bursts open and no fishy aftertaste.
Panfried lemongrass chicken - a tad too sweet but full of lemongrass
Koong poh wild Haruan fish slices - springy and melt in the mouth.
Stir fried wild boar meat - meaty and fragrant.
Pan fried sea prawns - succulent and sweet tasting.
Stir fried yau mak - the only green of the night.
Affordable prices and ample parking.
