A quickie, street-side Songkhla breakfast of rice porridge(congee) with condiments and mini fried bread sticks(yu tiao) before continuing eastwards to Satun via Haadyai. The last province of the Western Andaman Coastline before reaching Malaysian Border namely Satun is at the tip of Thailand’s Southern Region at the distance of 973 km from Bangkok. Satun has […]

South Thailand: Songkhla – Trang

In the Yala Province, there is a concentration of military roadblocks to police the civil unrest. We read about roadblocks being attacked but never noticed anything amiss. Every roadblock we stopped at, was met with a smile and a wave from a trooper.. and really young, handsome ones, at that! We got in late to […]

Albion @ Jalan Berangan, Changkat Bukit Bintang

Albion. This place is spanking new. So new that the menu does not have a price list on it yet! The owner was so nice, he told us, just eat and pay what you like at the end. As Albion only opens its doors to the public next Tuesday proper, this is some sort of  […]

B & Best Seafood Noodle @ SS4, PJ

We read about B & Best Seafood noodles from Masak-masak, who read about it from KYspeaks who says that it is a great favourites of Huai Bin’s. Phew.. now you know the history. Anyway, the most outstanding thing about B & Best Seafood Noodles and Porridge is the shear selection of seafood that they have […]

Soon Tong Restaurant @ Southern Park, Klang

We received instructions to drive pass HTAR (Klang General Hospital), when we see a Shell Petrol Station on the right, be prepared to turn left at the next traffic light which is located opposite an Esso Station. After the turn, there is a 7-11 store. Turn left again at the next junction and drive along […]

St. John @ St. John Street, London

At the junction at Smithfield Market, we turned left and walk along St. John Street for around 50 yards or […]

Waterlily Bistro @ Mutiara Tropicana

This new Balinese Restaurant, The Waterlily, is just a stones throw from my office in Tropicana.  This place though unique looking in design (well, about as unique as a Balinese restaurant can be) is a franchise and falls under the same group as Ole-Ole Bali and Bumbu Bali. I have not been a fan of […]

Favola @ Le Meridien, KL

The latest addition to the KL Sentral string of delightful 5 star restaurants is an Italian restaurant replacing the opulent Middle Eastern restaurant, Al Nafourah at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur. Falova means “fable” in Italian. I like the setting of the place that reminds me of rustic Italy of the renaissance era. Masquerade! Paper faces […]

Lala Chong @ Kampung Kayu Ara

Say the name “lala chong” and very few people will raise an eyebrow. Lala is a type of shellfish. The original restaurant that was in business for 9 years, was located at Terminal 3, Subang, and was well known and well patroned by both KL and PJ folk alike. Recently , the owner, Mr. Yim […]
