♥Verdict: Overall, it was a fairly good dinner session, with two out of three of our food belong to the category of ‘I won’t regret ordering’ and the service was friendly too.
Though it has been some time ago before my revisit, there must be something memorable about this place that got me remembering it till now- and unmistakably is their porky dish, yum. So we settled down quickly for some cuppa and savoury. We skipped the sweets as the day was still tad early, haha.
Classic Beef Burger (MYR 17) Never say no to fluffily fried spiced fries- my all time fave!
Would we come back? Yes – if we are in the area. Eden had enough well-executed dishes to warrant a return visit. In particular, we would definitely order the siu mai, har gao, fish ball, clam dumplings, spare ribs and woo kok.
One of the few remaining surviving Dim Sum restaurants in Kepong is this one; offering Dim Sum from early morning to before mid-night! Eden Dim Sum also have another location presence in Bukit Tinggi, Klang.
A couple of items that Eden does right are: Siu Mai (both premium and normal version), Lala Mai, Char Siew Puff, Snow Crab Stick (imitation type) dim sum and fried carrot cake. The rest are pretty run of the mill standard that neither impress nor disappoint.
♥Verdict: Although the food was not on a stellar level but Foo Hou Dim Sim still a good place to head to for some pipping hot Dim Sum. The spacious interior and the attentive service warrant repeat visits too.

The Steamed Har Gao Dumpling comes with the pulpy huge fresh prawns in it which is just superbly good. They are really fresh and delicious.
Conclusion, I liked what I ordered for lunch, the Pancake was definitely flavorful with distinctive pandan taste and look, the 4 pcs were infused with chocolate chips, on the side was honey and a sliced banana, very nice concoction.
This cafe serves many kinds of delicious Italian food besides other western food.
♥Verdict: Overall, our brunch at Skinny Dip was fairly good except for a few misses in between. I’d probably give it a second chance since it is near my house.

The Cheeky Shawarma was good, yummy. It came with 2 pieces of stuffed chicken wrap. The filling consisted of flavorful seasoned chicken slices + shredded cucumber, carrot and red cabbage. Besides that, the dish was also accompanied with a side of fries and apple salad. I however, decided to add on an additional side – buttered spinach.
With decent pricing and good portions, Just Nyonya proves to be a solid place for Nyonya food. Flavours are solid for most dishes with top favorites of mine that includes Perut Ikan, Chicken Kapitan, Sweet Potato Leaf Masak Lemak Keledek, Asam Prawns and more. There are also set lunch with very decent pricing and I spied Nyonya Laksa on the menu too. I will definitely be back to try other dishes on their menu!
Verdict: Food here is flavorful with loads of spice and aroma to entice me for a return. Good food with affordable pricing, Just Nyonya definitely a hidden gem at Kepong area that I will highly recommend! Oh ya, don’t forget to check out their set lunch priced at very decent price and I’m eyeing on the Nyonya Laksa, anyone joining me?
Chicken Curry Kapitan, which is a harmonious blend of tangy tamarind, creamy coconut milk and a variety of herbs and spices.
The food I had here is really good. All of it.
Judging by the crowd that morning, I think this is probably one of the more popular restaurants for tasty yong tau foo and I can certainly see why. The yong tau foo, though slightly pricier than some other shops at RM1.50/pc, is still worth the price as it's also a lot bigger (and with plump fillings). As I'm not familiar with the food in Kepong, I don't know how good this yong tau foo is (compared to the rest in this area) but I find it to be pretty decent (compared to some of those I've had elsewhere) and I definitely wouldn't mind coming again for just that...and to try more of their cooked dishes (especially the Hakka dishes).
The chicken used here are kampung chicken, and it was slow cooked for 4 hours. No wonder this rendang chicken here has soft meat that are dropping from the bones! I can taste the various spices in the chicken as the spices are infused into the meat after cooking for such a long time. Here the rendang chicken is not too spicy which is suitable for all ages and races of our community. This rendang chicken is added into the bamboo rice during the last 3 minutes of steaming.
Aside from the delicious rice, nasi lemak bamboo is paired with chicken rendang that cooked freshly every day. Puan Seema use Kampung chicken and slow cook for 4 hours. The rendang Gravy with cover part of the rice and the chicken tender was soft, Nasi Lemak Bamboo is sold at the price of Rm12.90
NASI LEMAK BAMBOO RM 12.90 Loved the fragrant pandan juice infused nasi lemak kukus in the bamboo cooked in banana leaf with pure coconut milk and ginger giving it the natural green hue. Sambal was just right - more spicy than sweet but the icing on the cake was the mouth-watering Rendang Ayam Kampung.
Verdict: The price was on the higher side for ala carte order and the portion wasn’t really compatible to the price charged. The set ingredients might priced cheaper that some of the hotpot restaurants at the same territory but again, the portion here was markedly smaller. The main disappointment that evening unquestionably was the pork bone soup that didn’t meet my standard for a good hot pot soup base.
BaWangChaJi, despite their visual elegance, is not an affront to your wallet. They are priced similarly to other tea shops that I’ve seen so you’re not paying more for a fancy printed cup here. Their tea macchiatos and Snowy Series are very unique and would be what draws me into one of their locations again. These drinks are very rich and heavy, but if I could stomach it, I would return to BaWangChaJi.

Senthai & Mookata restaurant, tucked facing a car park lot in Menjalara, Kepong is an authentic Thai restaurant with chefs from Thailand. Therefore I find the taste of certain dishes foreign and unique to my taste bud. Well, what to do, this is a jakun who seldom eat Thai food ^-^. So, I did a search in google for the meaning of SenThai and Mookata. "In Thailand the BBQ is called a “Mookata”, which translates directly to “Pork Pan” source :My Thailand Holiday. Loosely translated, it is noodles and BBQ Thai style. Hmm... let's see.
Even for steamboat, they use the traditional steamboat pot that uses charcoal as the burning medium. Since charcoal is used, there is no way to control the fire. So, you got to be extra careful. As for ingredients, you could either order the fixed set or a la carte or both. We had their Seafood Set for 2 pax @ RM58.00.
Impressed with the food at Senthai & Mookata, we returned shortly the next day to try their Thai barbecue and steamboat. But let me preface by saying that both their mookata and steamboat are excellent (as we hoped) and the ingredients served were high quality and fresh. So even though their price is slightly higher than the alternatives, you get what you pay for.
♥Verdict: Decent food, wallet friendly prices, making Foo Fee a worthwhile neighbourhood restaurant. Revisit? Why not? Foo Fee is quite a popular dining spot among Kepong folks, so you may have to expect a waiting queue on weekends.

Lunch for 4 pax - Soup with Lean Pork Meat for 2 pax in claypot at MYR16 nett per pax so MYR32 nett. A single pax dry portion with lean pork at MYR16 nett. The soup is light in colour and has wolfberries (goji) in it. It does not have the strong herbal taste but instead is like a sweet aromatic rich chicken soup. I was not thirsty after drinking the soup so verdict is no MSG used. All of us could not stop drinking the soup and had to ask for refills.
Yummy! Yummy! Stingray cooked in Portuguese Style with Sambal sauce where it enhanced the flavour. It was fresh, tender and has a perfect taste. Especially Cuttlefish came with Malacca Portuguese style and has a medium of spicy's level and different taste if compare with the sambal sauce. It would be more perfectly to eat with rice. So rice is a must food to add up. Absolutely, you would enjoy it so much.
There’s no menu here and the dishes you can order highly depend on the seafood stock as they get it. The idea is to walk up to the fishing boat where all the seafood is being displayed and decide which you wish to have in your meal. Everything is priced by weight and they are shown clearly. Then, pick the cooking methods available such as grill or steam with sauces or ginger and wine. The friendly boss will make recommendations according to your preferences.
Bubu Grill Seafood is a restaurant that you will miss if you are not looking for it. It does not enjoy the most strategic location in town, as it’s hidden from the main road and literally facing a construction site. But for seafood lovers in Kepong who appreciate freshness, Bubu Grill Seafood is worth knowing.
Verdict: Not a bad choice at all if you want a tummy warmer porridge meal, good portion and the flavour and consistency suit my requirement of a good porridge. Roasted duck was a bit letdown and I think a return trip was on the cards since it’s within my regular food hunting place.

Verdict: I think I’m quite “You Sek San” (a Cantonese proverb that describe a person who always surrounded by good food) in the first quarter of year 2023 because I’ve been trying a few rather awesome food which I have no hesitation to recommend to you all, Uncle Chua’s Prawn Noodle is one of them. ^ω^
