Nasi kerabu from Teh Tarik Place @ CITTA Mall, Ara Damansara

Teh Tarik Place is now an upstream eating spot of Malaysian local street food cuisine. This chain restaurant now present in many major shopping malls such as Setia City mall, Publika, Citta mall, 1-Utama, Empire shopping gallery and much more. The shop has many local favourites like teh tarik, roti canai, nasi lemak, nasi kerabu and mamak style fried noodles. The restaurant is covered with nostalgic old style artwork and it's a truly Malaysian culture.

Taste: 7/10(Moderate. The rice and salad were good. However, the ayam percik provided were not up to expectation. I enjoy their teh tarik. Its sweetness with nice tea taste were balanced and delicious).
Price: 6/10(Moderate. Nasi kerabu set at MYR12.00).

Pork spaghetti from Iberico Kitchen @ Oasis Ara Damansara

Iberico kitchen is a few places in Klang Valley area which serve Iberico pork. Its not so famous as higher price tag and not many people know the difference of meat texture between normal pork and Iberico pork. The meat from Iberian pig is more tender, taste better and fatter with nice marbling. The difference is almost like normal pig and free range pig where the pig are healthier as they are more active and adapt well to their environment. Iberico kitchen has a wide variety of dishes which uses Iberian pork such as salad, spaghetti, meatball, desserts and burgers. Their main speciality is their pork ribs. Since I visited here alone, I can't order much as only have their spaghetti instead.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. Tender and juicy meat. I like the meat texture which is soft with melt in your mouth fat layer. The meat is flavourful as well as it mixed with pepper and spices).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. Aglio olio with pan seared collar spaghetti at MYR33.00. For more economical meal, you can try their set lunch).

Environment inside the restaurant.

Write up about Iberian black pig. It claimed that Iberian pork can reduce the LDL cholesterol and increase the HDL cholesterol level and a more healthy breed of pork.

Tender meat and the spaghetti were done well with supposed to have ingredient such as dried chilies, garlic and spices.

Address: D-G-07, Oasis Square, Oasis Ara Damansara, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Opening hours: Thursday-Tuesday, 11.00am-3.00pm & 6.00pm-10.00pm. Closed Wednesdays.

Good Arabic cuisine at Dima Restaurant @ Ara Damansara

Dima Restaurant previously located in Oasis Ara Damansara has now moved to a new location in Taipan 2 of Ara Damansara. What surprise me is they have Arabic rice dinner set at a reasonable price.

Taste:8/10(Good. Tender lamb and rice taste good. However the sauce which comes with this set was too spicy for me. It taste like salsa sauce but its too spicy. Overall I do recommend to have dinner here).
Price:7/10(Moderate. The lunch/dinner set of mutton rice at MYR13.99 exclude GST. It comes with huge mandi rice, lamb, Arabic gravy, spicy sauce and hot pull tea. Portion wise were big and can easily satisfy any big eater).

Disappointing nasi kerabu lunch set from Kelantan Delights @ CITTA Mall, Ara Damansara

Kelantan Delights is a famous chain restaurant serving traditional cuisine from Kelantan such as nasi dagang, nasi kerabu, nasi tumpang and varieties of Kelantanese sweet desserts. It's my first time trying the meal here and my review as below.

Taste:5/10(So-so. The nasi kerabu here was not up to my expectation. The rice were a bit wet as it's not yet properly cooked yet. Chicken not tasty as well. Also the nasi kerabu don't have salted fish which I usually have from a cheaper version of nasi kerabu. Their dessert of lompat tikam and sago gula melaka failed my taste bud. The sago texture is not firm and its soak in watery coconut milk gula melaka. So basically the sago dessert is rather tasteless. Lompat tikam pandan pudding is slight watery as well and don't have much coconut taste).
Price:5/10(Near expensive. The meal here does not really worth the price that they charged. Set lunch at MYR26.90 exclude GST comes with set meal, lemon tea and dessert. Salted egg portion is only quarter!).


Nasi kerabu set. In English its a salad rice set with grilled marinated chicken.


Environment in the restaurant. Its still early for lunch.

They advertise nasi kerabu here. This should be their signature dish.

Hot lemon tea.

The meal comes with fish crackers, chicken and pickled vegetables.

Salted egg only quarter portion.


Sagu gula melaka. Soft and watery texture.

Lompat tikam - A traditional Kelantanese dessert, pandan infused pudding with steamed red glutinous rice, with a rich coconut cream and palm sugar syrup. Glutinous rice not properly cooked and the pandan pudding was watery.

Delicious fried chicken nasi lemak from Village Park Restaurant @ Damansara Utama, Petaling Jaya

Village Park Restaurant is a very busy restaurant. The chopping up of their famous fried chicken is non stop and wondering how much do they sell daily. Besides nasi lemak, the restaurant also have assam laksa, pan mee and nasi dagang. All those are Malaysian favourite food items. The only set back is the lack of parking in this area.

Taste:9/10(Delicious. Their signature fried chicken is the main attraction. The outer crust were crunchy and delicious. The chicken portion were huge. The sambal is the right balance of spicy and sweet).
Price:6/10(Moderate. Nasi lemak with fried chicken at MYR9.00 and hot lime juice at MYR2.70).
