Places to eat in Malaysia

Just the other day i was bored but was also too lazy and tired to cook. I'm living in Bangi which is about 45minutes to 1 hour from KL that is if there's no traffic jams...a little bit about Bandar Baru Bangi, Bangi is apparently a Knowledge City (i didn't know that until just now when i google about bangi) but its no suprise coz we ARE surrounded by Colleges and Universities *Go Figure!* anyway we're actually a big town but only some part of it were 'growing' or developed...we don't have Jaya Jusco nor Isetan nor Parkson nor Carrefour nor Tesco its such a boring town *snoozzz* we only have a small supermarket Warta now known as Bintang which oddly always crowded with people (i suppose that'll waht happen when you have no choice).

But when it comes to food we're suppose to have lots of choice. There's many food stalls and restaurants but then the problem is that they were great at first or when they're 'just opened' then they just lost actual fact is that with all the choices we have only few that had actually made in my enuf blabbering now here come the list

Bandar Baru Bangi
  1. Yankees : Great grilled fish but service are SLOW, located opposite kajang tol SHELL there's huge neon light sign 'YANKEES'
  2. Secret Recipe: For some cake indulgence and more 'classy' food, located opposite PKNS
  3. Restaurant Ayam Kampung dan Gulai Kawah : Great FOOD kampung style, located beside Warta.

  1. Precint 9 food court : all food overe there are not too bad comparing else where in Puterajaya, the foods are consistant, tasty but not that cheap.
  2. Sushi King @ Alamanda : just for a change for sushi and an afordable japanese food
  3. Johnny's @ Alamanda: Great Steamboat
  4. Alamanda Food Court: not always consistant but my favarouit would be the chicken rice stall, Yong Taufoo stall and the noodle stall
Kuala Lumpur
  1. Susy's Corner: Great Steak with rather large portion but cheap its a Victoria Station teh cheaper version, located in Ampang.
  2. Yoshinoya: this is my son and i fave japanese fast food, they're available in Mid Valley,KLCC,One Utama...just to name a few
  3. Tupai Tupai: great food but i'm not sure where its located but if you ever heard of it just go and try.
  4. Plaza Hartamas: Foods are great but EXPENSIVE! no i dun wanna spend RM10 for a drink!
  1. Up Town, Damansara Utama: this is one of my fave lepak place, foods are good and not so expensive...
  2. The Carnival : all you can eat steak and grill buffet...yummy!

there's more but i'll just have to update it stay tuned!!

Some Great Books to share

lately i'm in a craze of buying cook books and i found some great books with great recipes...(you know how some books doesn't really give the correct that no matter how many times you tried the recipe you end up having the same result -blurgh-unsuccessful ?) news flash...sometimes they hide the 'vital' ingredients that makes the dish great and edible...;)

but these books..(i've tried some of the recipes) is great...great out come, great taste...and i thought i've to share what i've been reading...

so here it is:
this book is great coz it have all sorts of brownies recipes including you'll have varities of browines to try. The only down side of this book is that its like a text book only with no PICTURES so its abit boring to explore the book..honestly i prefer books with lots of pictures ;)

sneak peek of the inside of the book

this has literally became my text book! it actually have 2 editions the beginners and advance both book are great! they teach you step by step of how to make cakes, glaze,fondant and decoration technics and the rest is your imagination!

this book is not as great as i hoped it to be...tried some of its recipe but most often then not it didn't turned out as good...probably its because she didn't really explain about the technics used in the cooking process...coz i think the recipe is correct (at least i think so) know how malay kuih are, they're complicated...sigh~ hope that she'll explain more on the cooking technics!
