Bismillah Cendol, Taiping, Perak

A cold bowl of cendol always does the trick when you need to cool down in the hot Malaysian weather. When in Taiping, there are two famous places to have cendol, both within walking distance of each other. One of them is Bismillah Cendol, which has been around since 1993.



Here, you can find cendol biasa, kacang, pulut, and pulut kacang as well as laksa and pasembor. We went for the Cendol pulut (RM2 per bowl), which came with pulut which has been slightly toasted / roasted. The portion here is slightly larger than the other place, and the pulut does lend a nice salty contrast to the sweet cendol as well as adding some texture.

Seafood Porridge / Noodles @ Kedai Makanan OK, Taiping

When we were researching what to eat in Taiping, we were told that seafood noodle was one of the must-try dishes in this town. Kedai Makanan OK was recommended to us by a friend (and local), and the food here was definitely more than OK for us ;)

Ar Kedai Makanan OK, you will find a chicken rice stall as well as a stall called "Sakai". They specialise in seafood or fish porridge / noodle, pork noodle or curry mee. We ordered a seafood porridge, seafood noodle (koay teow) and curry mee to share.




The seafood porridge (RM11) was nice and sweet, and came with ample amount of fresh seafood such as prawns, fishball and fish fillet.  Similarly, we enjoyed the seafood noodles (RM11) - the broth although clear was really tasty and flavorful.






The curry mee (RM4) was our favourite here - robust, well-spiced soup with prawns, tofu puff and beansprouts. The kopi peng and teh peng here are well-worth a try too.





St. George School Taiping (located on the same street) - very nice looking building


Beautiful heritage building next door




You can buy your parking coupons here (near the restaurant).



Opening times: 7.30am - 3pm.

Price: Total bill RM26 for food + RM5 for drinks.

Location: Kedai Makanan OK, 25, Jalan Stesen, 34000 Taiping, Negeri Perak. (Street parking - pay using coupon).

PSL Goreng Pisang 炸香蕉, Taiping

For our after dinner snack, we visited the famous P.S.L. Goreng Pisang 炸香蕉 which was recommended by one of our friends. You can choose from banana fritters, spring rolls, nian gao with sweet potato and fried cempedak. I asked how much each piece was, and was told they are priced according to size.

The banana fritters had a nice, crisp batter and were soft and sweet on the inside. I was pleasantly surprised to find fried cempedak here as we don't see them often in KL these days.




Opening times: 12pm - 9pm.

Price: Total bill RM7 for 5 items.

Location: PSL Goreng Pisang, 85, Jalan Pasar, 34000 Taiping, Perak (Street parking).

Tradisi Delights, EkoCheras Mall

After an afternoon of shopping at EkoCheras Mall, the kids were feeling hungry so we dropped by Tradisi Delights for a quick bite. Their menu offers local delights such as nasi lemak, cucur udang, chee cheong fun, Jawa mee, popiah and more. Place your order at the counter, pay and the food will be served to you when ready.

We had the Tradisi chicken curry mee (RM10.90) which was rather good with its thick, fragrant broth. You can specify the type of noodles that you want too. It also comes with two pieces of chicken, potatoes, long beans, bean sprouts and tofu pok.




The Nasi lemak ayam berempah (RM11.90) was decent too - the rice had the nice coconut milk aroma and the sambal is the sweet-spicy type. My only complain is that the fried chicken served with the nasi lemak was really small for the price they're charging, so we ended up adding-on an extra piece for RM3.50.



Opening times: 9am - 10pm daily.

Price: Total bill RM27.10

Location: Tradisi Delights, S-K09, 2nd Floor, Eko Cheras Shopping Mall, Jalan Cheras, Taman Mutiara Barat, 56000 Cheras, Kuala Lumpur.

Kingyo Japanese Restaurant, EkoCheras Mall

Earlier last week, we wanted to have Japanese food for lunch so we checked out Kingyo Japanese Restaurant. Located on the first floor of EkoCheras Mall, the restaurant offers set menu and a la carte menu during lunch. There are 13 set menus to choose from, all priced at RM19 per set and comes with pickles, salad, rice, miso soup, chawanmushi and fruits.



I had the Shake don set which came with around 9 slices of salmon sashimi, topped on top of vinegared rice. The sashimi was fresh and a pretty good thickness for don. Chawanmushi was also nice and smooth.




Hubby had the Saba teriyaki set - nice crisp skin, though there were a lot of bones in the fish which made eating really tedious.

Opening hours: 10am to 10pm daily.

Anne Elizabeth The Deli Restaurant, Cheras

Anne Elizabeth is a deli-cum-restaurant in Taman Segar, Cheras which offers Iberico ribs, pork steaks, Wagyu steaks and more.

The concept here is simple - get a table, head over the meat counter, select your meat/cuts as well as any sides/salads/soups and your food will be served to your table once it's ready. The staff here are friendly and can offer assistance if you need some help choosing your meat, from the range of sausages, pork, beef and fish.




We went for one pork, one beef and a salad to share. First to arrive was the Passion fruit salad (RM11.90), some greens, raisins and cherry tomatoes tossed in a honey dressing and topped with fresh passion fruit and Parmesan.



Next to arrive was the Australian marbled ribeye (RM78), which was perfectly cooked to medium doneness as requested. We chose this as the marbling looked incredible on the meat in its raw state, and it certainly did not disappoint in terms of taste too... super tender and juicy! Served with two types of sauce and mustard.






We also had the Sakura Pork Belly, which is the offer item for the month. Simply check-in to Anne Elizabeth on Facebook (Mon to Thurs 12pm - 4pm throughout August)  and you can enjoy this 250g slab for RM9.90 instead of RM22.20. It's marinated with Sarawak pepper and honey and then cooked over the grill. Beautiful layers of fat and juicy meat... so good!

We also bought some Honey sausage (RM7.90 each) and cooked a Big Breakfast the next day at home.

We know where to head to the next time the meat craving hits!

Restoran Cikgu Kay, Bandar Penawar, Desaru

While looking for places to eat in Desaru, I came across this restaurant which many has praised as having the best nasi kerabu in the area. Restoran Cikgu Kay is a restaurant in Bandar Penawar, which serves East Coast specialties such as nasi kerabu, nasi kukus and nasi dagang.

The restaurant is run by an elderly couple. Most of their dishes are showcased at the front. We both chose the Nasi kerabu, which the owner assembled for us (ie the blue rice, usually tinted by blue pea flower aka bunga telang, various herbs, kickass sambal chilli) and then you help yourself to the salted egg, keropok (cracker) and meat of your choice. Usually, I go for the fried chicken when I have nasi kerabu but as we arrived quite late, the remaining fried chicken looked a little sad so I opted for the ayam masak merah instead. Turned out to be a good choice as it was really yummy.




Hubby had the same but with daging rendang (beef rendang) which was flavorful, well-spiced and tender. We both enjoyed the nasi kerabu here. The kids had white rice with some beef rendang and fish crackers.




Opening hours: 7am to 7pm daily.

Price: Total bill RM25 for 3 meals.

Location: Restoran Cikgu Kay,No. 2 Jalan Dato Jaafar 24/2, Taman Mutiara Desaru, Bandar Penawar, Tanjong Surat, 81930 Johor, Malaysia. (Street parking available)

Tel: 014-531 3756
