Awesome authentic Kelantanese cuisine from Kesom Cafe @ Aman Suria, Petaling Jaya

Kesom Cafe located in Aman Suria is a small cafe serving Kelantanese food. They are famous for nasi kerabu, nasi dagang and a few types of sweet dessert. The taste is good and different compared to other Kelantanese restaurant that I tried. Their food is more aromatic and using quality ingredients. I went there to tried their nasi kerabu and I like it so much that I take away their weekend speciality which is khao jam. I has good khao jam in Kota Bahru before but I can't find it elsewhere in Klang Valley other than in Kesom Cafe.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. Nasi kerabu and khao jam here does taste great. Aromatic and flavourful. Their fish floss were good. Khao jam/herbs rice were cooked to perfection with strong herbal taste with adequate ingredients).
Price:6/10(Moderate. Plain nasi kerabu at MYR8.00 and khao jam at MYR9.00. If you would like their fried chicken, do top up another MYR5.00. Serai pandan tea at MYR3.00. Second glass refill at MYR0.50).


Delicious nasi kerabu. Do notice the colour of the ingredients. It looks lighter colour compared to other establishment. It looks fresh.

Serai pandan drink.

Side dishes to add to your meal.

Nasi khao jam - come with mixed ulam, acar, keropok, salted duck egg, kerisik ikan, kerisik kelapa, budu and tumis. So many ingredients, no wonder so flavourful. Also known as herbs rice.

Fried banana.

Clean and cosy environment in Kesom Cafe.

Mongolian steamboat from Xiao Fei Yang (XFY) Steamboat restaurant @ Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya

Xiao Fei Yang is a chain restaurant serving spicy ma la style of steamboat. Their soup is delicious and flavourful. They have many ingredients to choose to put into the soup eg sliced mutton, special pork balls, fried fish skin and dumplings. I do enjoy the sauces area where you can mix different kind of sauces and ingredients to eat it with your food. Other than the hidden charges, this place has good food to savour.

Taste:8/10(Good. No doubt that their soup is the main attraction. Do go for combination soup of ma la and herbal soup. In the ma la soup you can eat much of the ingredients and spices there. Good to increase body heat. Make sure to order their fried fish skin and special pork balls).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. Even though their soup is great, they charge MYR24.00 for it. Make sure you drink the soup a lot and finish the ingredient inside there. Also, you may noticed that their bowls, spoons, chopsticks are sealed in a wrapper for hygiene purposes. They charge those wrapper for MYR1.00 each. For me, it's weird that they charge it that way. The tea they charge by the number of person even though we ordered 1 pot. Prices for all the ordered items as below: slices mutton at MYR21.00, sliced pork at MYR14.00, home made pork ball at MYR9.00, fish noodles at MYR8.00, dumplings at MYR8.00 and vegetables at MYR6.00 for each plate).

Combination soup of ma la and herbal soup.


Ordered the following items for our dinner: mutton slices, pork slices, pork balls, vegetables, fish noodles, dumplings & home made pork balls.

This part is most interesting. Creating your own sauce by mixing the available ingredients. Among the ingredients: fermented bean curd, spring onion, garlic, chili, sesame, oil and soy sauce.

Tasty fish noodles from SK Seafood Noodles Restaurant @ Bukit Tinggi, Klang

SK seafood noodles restaurant is located quite hidden from main road in Bukit Tinggi, Klang. If you don't specifically look for it, you won't be able to find it as the surrounding new shop lots are quite abandoned. However, the trip to this restaurant is quite worth it as the fish noodles here is quite delicious. For those who don't like milk in your fish noodles, then this is a perfect choice for you. Their fish noodles soup is quite unique and you have two choice with either traditional soup base with tomatoes and yam version. I particularly like the yam version as you can taste the richness of meshed yam in the soup. The fish which comes with the noodles were fresh and cooked to perfection. They also have other varieties of seafood dishes such as prawn, porridge, pork chop, fish head & curry fish.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. Unique fish noodles soup with yam is something to try out here. Its taste great and comes with natural ingredients. The fish noodles soup goes well with their spicy prawn paste chili sauce dip. If you don't like plain fish meat, they also have fried fish meat version and fish head).
Price:6/10(Moderate. The price for a bowl fish noodles for both traditional and yam version is MYR9.50 and MYR10.00 respectively. They also have sea fish version at MYR14.00 for each bowl).


Yam version of fish meat noodles. Rich soup and you can eat yam chunks.

Traditional version of fish meat noodles.

Variety of dishes to choose from.

They also have sea fish version of fish meat. For me it taste almost the same but its more expensive.

Normal looking shop. But tasty food.
