Today, I’m writing about, yes you’ve guessed it right, food. What are we without food, right? (or is it the other way round) Whatever. Anyway, in today’s post, I’m gonna write about four of my favorite restaurants, where and what is it that they have that I love so much.

To begin with, let’s go to Putrajaya, the federal administrative centre of Malaysia. Click Here for more info. What’s special about Putrajaya is that my number one favorite restaurant is here.

Mr. Kabab & Biryani is located at Jalan Diplomatik 3/1, Presint Diplomatik, Putrajaya. It offers traditional Arab and Paki food –  variety of kababs and biryani rice as well as special drinks. What I like to eat the most here is Chicken Wing Kabab. They serve 4 chicken wings, mayo-like dipping, special sauce, fries, roti arab, and most importantly, a BIG chili! Being a fan of spicy food myself, no wonder I instantly got hooked to this special dish the minute it arrived on our table when i first dined here with Yunus. You’ve got to try it to believe me. Another favorite is Lamb Mindy. One thing i like about this restaurant and i highly recommend this place is because it comes with a HUGE portion. You’ll not leave this place still feeling hungry.

From Putrajaya to Petaling Jaya where my second favorite restaurant is located – The Waterlily.

the outlet in Mutiara Tropicana, PJ

This is a Balinese restaurant which serves contemporary Balinese food. My two favorite food here are Waterlily Trio and Ayam Megoreng. Waterlily Trio, as the name mentioned, has 3 items in a BIG plate which are BBQ chicken wings, Sate Lilit (it’s a fish satay on lemon grass stalks) and Cumi-cumi goreng (fried sotong/squid) while Ayam Megoreng (no i did not spell it wrongly) is specially fried half chicken served with yellow rice (no, not sticky rice/pulut), tempeyek-like keropok and veges.

Next stop is wayyy up north in Penang. To those who don’t know where or what Penang is, Click Here. Penang or Pulau Pinang in Bahasa Malaysia/Malay is 159km from Ipoh and 369km from Kuala Lumpur or 2 hours and 5 hours max by car respectively. I was in Penang for three years when I was doing my diploma in Hotel Management. When I was small, my family and I would go to Penang almost every weekend for makan angin and our favorite restaurant there on the island is Hameediyah Restaurant.

Located at 164-A, Campbell Street, it is one of the oldest Nasi Kandar restaurants in town. Since my campus is just 10 minutes away from the Bridge, my friends and I would drive to the island sometimes for lunch or to places where we usually hang out. Eventhough the place doesn’t look inviting, trust me it is very clean. (my family especially Mummy is very particular about where we eat) Though this place looks cramped, it  has the best murtabak, ayam rose and fish head curry! *drooling. Here’s to show how famous this place is:

By looking at how cramped this place is, where do we eat, you may wonder. Well, Hameediyah has 2 outlets now – old and new. In the old outlet, you may eat at upstairs dining area and an area next to the picture above while the new outlet which is 2 shoplots away from the old outlet is an air-conditoned outlet.

Last but not least, to end today’s post is none other than Nando’s!

Yes yes, I’m a proud Peri-periholic! What I would normally order is 1/4 Chicken with 2 sidelines – peri chips and either coleslaw or grilled veges, extra hot flavor – drumstick and thigh with Sparkling Apple. Yummy!

Enough said.

Stay tuned for more! Yours truly,
