Pontian Wanton Noodles @ SS15, Subang Jaya

Pontian Wanton Noodles House originated from Pontian which is a small town south of Peninsular Malaysia in the state of Johore. With 60 years of history, currently, they have many branches around Klang Valley and Singapore. They have a strange flavour of wanton noodles which is in tomato sauce which is out of the usual norm of using dark sauce.

Taste:8/10(Good. Fast and convenient. The fried wanton is good and crispy. But I appreciate that their wanton to be a bit bigger. Barbeque pork is average. Their noodles is bouncy and their tomato wanton noodles complements well with the fried wanton).
Price:7/10(Moderate. Their wanton noodles and other menu have 3 different sizes. As for wanton noodles, small at MYR5.30, medium at MYR6.30 and large at MYR7.30).

I ordered their unique tomato sauce wanton noodles. The combination of the noodles and tomato sauce is good. I would give thumb up to their fried wanton. The wanton is crispy and savoury.

Pontian wanton noodles shop not only have wanton noodles but also have laksa, dumpling noodles & chicken feet noodles.

The environment inside the shop. You may sit outside or inside which is air-conditioned.

Korean food of Myung-Ga @ Taman Intan, Klang

Klang town is previously lacking a good Korean restaurant. But that has changed after Myung-Ga opened in Taman Intan, Klang back in year 2011.

Taste:8/10(Good. Good portion of Ban Chan which is small dishes accompany the main dishes. They are good especially kimchi and spinach. The bibimbap is good although its vegetarian. And I prefer their chicken ginseng soup to have more flavour as its a bit light for my liking. Chicken is soft and easily detached from bones. There is some rice at the bottom of the chicken ginseng soup).
Price:6/10(Moderate. What value for money here is that you can have unlimited refill of side orders-Ban Chan. We ordered their Bibimbap at MYR25.00 and chicken ginseng soup at MYR33.00).

Vegetarian bibimbap.

Bibimbap after everything is mixed.

Ginseng chicken also known as Samgyetang. A bit fusion to suit Malaysian taste.

Sri Nirvana Maju Restaurant has always been ranked high for Indian food in Time Out Magazine. This time I visit to try out myself to prove how good their banana leaf rice are. Located at a high end area with plenty of Western and fine dining eateries, this is a restaurant for those who are budget conscious. Although their banana leaf rice and drinks is slightly more expensive but their are still much cheaper compared to the fine dining or Western restaurant nearby. Beware of those who come here during lunch or dinner time as table is hard to get by. This restaurant is a mamak style restaurant with good combination of condiments in their banana leaf rice has made this restaurant popular and featured in many food review.

Taste:8/10(Good. The banana leaf rice is good with best combination of condiments which I can find. The best condiments in my opinion is the masala fried bitter gourd which is so tasty and crunchy. Other than that, the meal also comes with acar-raw marinated cucumber, papadam-crispy cracker, sour plum, rasam & fried chilli).
Price:6/10(Moderate. Banana leaf rice at MYR8.00 and lime juice drink at MYR1.80).
