It was one of the impromptu evenings when my god bro swinged the coffee bar to pick me up for dinner I thought. True enough dinner, but in JB! So he drove me home to pick up my passport and then we headed to JB via Tuas checkpoint.

There are some facts that I have researched on lately that cleared my mind. All along I always thought the Canton-i (http://wp.me/pCcuC-4A) at ION Orchard in Singapore is related to Dragon-i in Malaysia… I was right, Canton-i is under the Dragon-i Restaurant Group of Companies. Whether the outlet in Singapore is a direct expansion or franchise, I’ve yet to find out. The other thing I’ve always thought that Canton-i was under the Paradise Group of Singapore, apparently not, just that they have Canton Paradise under their group which sounds similar.
Anyways this is my second time here at this outlet in KL after so many years… the first time was before I started writing on food some 5 years ago. So I was in town for work and then met up with a friend for dinner to check out their food once again. Check out the pics below:
Taste: Standard still as good as last time. If I had my other foodie friends with me, we could have ordered all their signature dishes.
Service: Excellent. However, you can see the manageress keep eyeing on the other service staff. I feel for the waitresses/waiters.
Ambience: Not as posh as I remember it to be. But still quite comfy for diners.
Price: All that for around RM$200. About S$80. In Singapore it will cost more than that.
RTE: I might but I still prefer the street food wherever I travel. 🙂
Location: Lot No. 1.17.00, Storey No. Level 1, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, 168 Jalan Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur. Tel : +603 2143 7688. Reservations highly recommended.
Haven’t been shopping or even walking along the streets of Bukit Bintang in KL for the longest time and this time I made it a point with a friend who happened to fly in Kuala Lumpur at the same time from Hong Kong. So we decided to catch up over dinner and while we were wandering around, we saw this place with all the signages…
So we decided to check out this place… how wrong can it go when it’s recommended by 蔡澜, the famous food critic/celebrity from Hong Kong. To our surprise, this is suppose to be a foodcourt where they get the best streetfood in Malaysia and house them there! Check out the pics below, and tell me how not to salivate??!!
Taste: Hokkien Mee is really good. We should have tried the wan ton noodles and beef ball noodles but no stomach space. Bak Kut Teh is good too.
I was visiting a colleague’s house in this remote parts of Johor recently and we had our dinner here. I tried to google and see if any one has written about this place and apparently not… at least in English. Anyways this place is THE RESTAURANT in Labis town and everyone knows where this place is. The default place for all weddings, birthdays, family dinners, gatherings, etc. I heard so much about this place prior to my visit and was really looking forward to sinking my teeth into all their specialities, especially the reknown Hokkien Mee. See pics below with descriptions:
Taste: Everything tasted good and not too salty. Love the food here!
Portion: Above average.
Service: The lady boss knows my colleagues parents, hence service was naturally good. But overall service to other tables were good as well.
Ambience: Air-con place. Feels like the old restaurants we use to visit like Ban Leong in Singapore.
Price: Damn reasonable. See last pic.
RTE: Definitely! Need to get a car first…
