KY’s 2014 Top Eats

December 31, 2014 16 Comments

In a blink of an eye and suddenly we’re staring at 2015. I’m glad that I had the opportunity to try a lot of new (to me) food places, here are some of the selected few that I really enjoyed, they are listed in a few categories:

KY's 2014 best halal food

Halal Food:

Lets start with a few halal places. Ayam Bakar Wong Solo for their ayam penyet and grilled chicken to go with those awesome sambal. We also stumbled upon Cendol Bakar (the guy’s name, not how they burn the ice..) at Kuala Selangor. Grilled fish fans should check out the old school Mat Teh ikan bakar stall at Dato’ Keramat too. Then there’s messy burger at Bobby’s, and thanks to a Malay colleague, I was also introduced to A Hassan’s Ayam Goreng Kampung as perhaps the best food stall on a highway rest stop.

KY's 2014 best non halal food

Non Halal Restaurants:

In this category, lets start off with steamboat that has huge Alaskan Crab and Geoduck at The Pot, Kuchai Lama. For those who love yakitori, Maruhi Sakaba is a place to check out. Hua Xing became one of our regular places for dinner, and if you love bitter gourd Hokkien Mee, there isn’t a better place to go. Ma Maison’s Tonkatsu at 1 Utama is now my favorite tonkatsu place (not that there’s many), and thanks to a native Klang girl, I am now a fan of Ah Her bak kut teh (even though they’re very stingy with soup)

KY's 2014 best street foods in Klang Valley

Hawker stalls:

I went to dozens of new hawker stalls, but these are the few that I kept going back – the new kuih teow soup place at Mingtien that serves coagulated blood, Peter’s pork noodle at Brickfields (been there for ages), if you love fried chicken rice, there’s on at Segambut with very nice chili sauce, and who can say no to nasi lemak when it comes with pork skin curry? Check them out!

KY's 2014 fine dining

Nicer Restaurants:

A couple food reviews in nicer restaurants came to mind in this category, the lobster affair at The Restaurant, and those parma ham & delicious pizzas at Midi 57 at Bangsar. I’ve also made a habit of going to Ten Japanese for their lunch sets, to the dismay of my wallet balance.

KY's 2014 out of Klang Valley best eats

Out of Klang Valley:

I went out of state a few times in 2014, and there were a few places worth checking out if you happen to be there. Fu Man restaurant at Tanjung Malim for those pork dishes and tofu. Siam Road CKT in Penang if you don’t mind the wait time, and awesome kuih teow soup at the Anson Road wet market in Penang if you love chicken skin and savory soup. If you head to Genting/Bukit Tinggi, Loong Sing is a worthy place to stop over for lunch too. I was also introduced to KK’s version of pork noodle at Jia Xiang Sang Yuk Mian, good stuff!

Lets hope there’s more in 2015! Happy New Year!

  8. KY, if you like A Hassan Ayam Kampung, please try their main branch at Cheras near Velodrom (Downtown area). They have a big building with multiple stall and if you came for lunch.. it looks like the whole area is theirrestaurant. hehehe I found out that their food taste better in the main branch as compared with the one at highway stop.
