I Love Broga @ Broga, Selangor

When you're in Broga, you should also visit this stall called I Love Broga. They are located right in the town centre, facing the police station. Their specialty is their Ais Kacang, Hakka Noodles as well as their Wantan Mee which is very unique.

Just A Humble Stall

The Signage To Look Out For
The place isn't anything much. Just a humble tent with some chairs and tables. Two preparation counters located on each end of the stall, one for the Ais Kacang which is most often prepared by the father and on the other end, the noodles kiosk which is manned by the sons. 

Their Menu is not limited to the above but these are their signature dishes. I always would go for their Dry Hakka Noodles but sadly they were sold out this afternoon. So we went for their Ais Kacang and their version of Wantan Mee which is prepared using Pan Mee. 

Wantan Mee (Small) @ RM 5.00

All Stirred Up

Clear Soup
Their Wantan Mee here is very unique as it is prepared using Pan Mee which is something that is quite rare. Another thing would be they would add both curry as well as soy sauce for the preparation thus giving it the extra flavours. Served hot and it comes with lots of Fish Cake and Fuchok. Along with that, a small bowl with clear soup is served as well. Simple dish but lovely flavours and my rating for this shall be 8/10. 

Ais Kacang @ RM 4.00

Super Good Preparation
Every time I visit Broga, this Ais Kacang is a must for me. They are very generous with the ingredients and it's not too sweet as well. Just nice and it's amazingly good for our weather. My rating for this shall be 9/10. 

If you're visiting Broga, do look out for this stall called I Love Broga. It's located right in the middle of town, opposite the Police Station. Three things to look out for here, their Ais Kacang, Dry Hakka Noodles and their very own unique Wantan Mee. The place is very basic with just a few tables but the food here is really something.

Rojak & Cendol Tokong @ Kajang, Selangor

This place that I am sharing with you this evening is very famous for their Rojak and Cendol and since it is located within the premises of a Chinese Temple, it is fondly called Rojak & Cendol Tokong by the locals.

The Stall Located Along Jalan Mendaling

The Stall At The Temple Premise
Locating this place is quite easy. If you know where Maybank, Bandar Kajang is, this stall is not too far from there. Just where the road bends, is where this Chinese Temple is located and this stall is inside this temple on the side. They are open daily and business is extremely good. Besides Cendol, they also sell Rojak, Rojak Mee, Mee Rebus and Mee Goreng. Since we had already had lunch earlier, we decided to stick to their Cendol. 

Plain Cendol @ RM 2.20

All Stirred Up
It was a reasonably long wait as the place was very crowded. Finally, our Cendol arrived and we were eager to taste the famous Cendol in Kajang. Sadly, it was a huge let down. They had cut back on the ingredients and it did taste pretty awful. I wonder how this Cendol had become so famous when it's just not there taste wise. My rating for this shall be 4/10. I don't think I would ever return for their Cendol. 

Address: Jalan Mendaling, 43000 Kajang, Selangor.

D Warung Bawal @ Kajang, Selangor

I came across this place after watching the Rasikka Rusikka series on ASTRO Vanavil. This was aired some time back and I had saved it fora while now. After a couple of months, it was only this afternoon that I managed to pay them a visit. 

The Restaurant In Sungai Kantan Area

Food Being Prepared On Site
Locating this place is fairly easy with today's technology. Both Google Maps as well as Waze has them listed and brings you accurately to their door step. The main food item here is the Fried Bawal. It goes in sets where you get rice, Ulam, some Curry, Sambal Hijau, another mixture of onions & lime in Sweet Soy Sauce and a reasonably large Fried Bawal. All this for only RM 6.50. If you do not want to have their Fish, then Fried Chicken is also available. However, the top seller here is their Fried Fish. The crowd was extremely overwhelming and the place was literally full house at 12.30 pm. Frying is done on site to ensure that customers get fresh, crispy fried fish. 

Teh O Ais

Since we knew that we're going to be having something spicy, we opted for Teh O Ais. In fact, we had a couple of drinks since it was a hot afternoon and the drink went so well with the meal. My rating for their drink would be 9/10. The Ulam provided was fresh and it was a good accompaniment to the mains. 

Fried Bawal

Fried Chicken
We actually had quite a bit of Fish and Chicken. Though there were only two of us, we totally loved the Fried Bawal and had ordered three of it. The fish was so crispy and the marination was perfect. It was so good and you would be yearning for more and more. This definitely deserves a rating of 10/10. Their Fried Chicken however wasn't up to our expectations. It was just so so and my rating for this shall be 5/10. Between them both, my vote is surely for the Fried Bawal. 

Thick Soy Sauce with Onions & Lime

Sambal Hijau
The unique proposition here is to have the rice with the above tow sauces. Not as a combination, but one at a time. Both the sauces differ greatly in taste. The Thick Soy Sauce with lime and onions were totally different to the Sambal Hijau. Both were excellent in their own ways and I would definitely give them both 10/10. 

Not forgetting the gravy that was another lovely preparation. Not too spicy, it was just nice and went very well with the rice and fish. My rating for this shall be 8/10. 

Although this may seem like a very simple meal, it was definitely deeply satisfying. The Fried Bawal was absolutely heavenly and so were the Sambal Hijau and the Soy Sauce with onions & lime. If you're in Kajang at around noon, I would highly recommend visiting this place in Sungai Kantan. D' Warung Bawal is a must visit restaurant in Kajang.

Broga Recreational Fishing Park @ Broga, Selangor

One of my cousins were down this afternoon and he was looking for a very different kind of place to go for lunch. That was when I had proposed Broga Recreational Fishing Park because I was certain that he had not visited this place before and as such, it would surely be an experience to remember for him. Having sold him the idea of having lunch in a farm, we head down to Broga. In terms of directions, it would be quite difficult for me to precisely say and the place is not listed in Waze as well. Most importantly, there's no internet connection as you come close to this place. So, here's the directions for you. Firstly, set your destination at University of Nottingham on your GPS and get yourself there. Once you come to Nottingham, keep driving straight all the way. Even if it seems like you're in the middle of nowhere, just keep driving and you'd come to the town of Broga. From here, continue straight and you'd see a lot of seafood restaurant on both sides of the road. Once you come to an intersection which marks the border of Selangor - Negeri Sembilan, naturally the road will turn right but you keep driving straight. There would be the famous Dato Bak Chinese Temple with a small lane on the left which says road closes at 7 pm. Take that road and keep driving. At this point, you'd loose handphone signals but don't worry. Shortly, you would once again see lots of huge Chinese farm like restaurants on both sides. Keep driving till the last restaurant which is this Broga Recreational Fishing Park which would be on your left. 
The Restaurant in Broga

All Dishes Are Cooked This Way
There's nothing fancy about this place. It's a shack like set up in the middle of the farm. All dishes are cooked in aluminium foils by being placed over charcoal fire. Nevertheless, the food is extremely good here and prices are reasonable. 

The Menu

In terms of menu, what you see above is what they have here. Pretty much it's a fish dish, mutton, vegetables and prawns cooked with a variety of sauces. The style of preparation i.e. the sauces is one that you could choose from. 

Teochew Style Fish with Spicy Soy Bean Paste @ RM 23.00

Dried Chili Mutton @ RM 16.00
All the dishes that I have shared in today's entry are their signature dishes. In terms of fish, I have tasted a variety of their preparation and my favourite is the above Teochew Style Fish with Spicy Soy Bean Paste that is priced at RM 23.00 . The fish is wonderfully cooked and the flavours goes deep into the meat. The sauce itself tastes amazingly good and my rating for this shall be 9/10. Dried Chili Mutton is also one of our favourites and I prefer this style over their Curry Mutton. It is just amazing to see how they could make the meat so tender and the accompanying ingredients just goes so well with the dish. 8/10 would be my rating for this dish. 

Mixed Vegetables @ RM 8.00

Tomyam Prawns @ RM 45.00
Their Mixed Vegetable dish is another one that I would highly recommend. The vegetable is just so tasty and they are able to bring out the natural juices making it heavenly. It's just so sweet and nice. 10/10 would be my rating for this dish. The last one that we had this afternoon is their Tomyam Prawns which was priced at RM 45.00 . Pretty decent portions but I would prefer their Rice Wine & Ginger Prawns better. This was good but not as good as that. My rating for this shall be 7/10. 

Fancy dining in the farm with freshly caught seafood cooked according to their signature styles? Then, this would be a fantastic place for your to visit. Despite being in Broga which is a 'Grilled Fish' heaven, it's not too far a drive from Kuala Lumpur. Prices have gone up but I would still consider them a good bargain compared to the city. Food is definitely good. If you have not been here yet, then it's totally worth the drive ad experience. 

Address: Lot 4242, Old Broga Road, 71750 Lenggeng, Negeri Sembilan.

Restoran Jaipur Mahal @ Cyberjaya, Selangor

I had some guests this evening at office and they wanted to have something Indian. The first place that struck my mind was Jaipur Mahal. I guess the reason for that would be the overall ambiance at this restaurant along with the decent and not too expensive food that you get here. 

Jaipur Mahal Located Along Jalan GC9, Glomac Cyberjaya
This restaurant is located along Jalan GC9 which is in Glomac Cyberjaya area. For those who are not familiar, they are the next block from Pelita Nasi Kandar. The ambiance is good, low lighting, air-conditioned dining hall and the waiters' service levels are excellent. They have a huge spread of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes to choose from.  In a matter of minutes, our ordering was done.

Ribbon Murukku

The Ribbon Murukka and Kesari and complimentary starters that they always serve here. Both were nicely prepared and both were equally good. The Ribbon Murukku wasn't spicy as well and for those who intend on buying more, they do sell them in jars. Do ask any one of the waiters and they would be happy to assist you. Taste wise, both deserves a rating of 8/10. 

Plain Rice

Butter Naan @ RM 4.90 each
We had ordered some rice and Butter Naan. I am not too sure what the price if the rice was as I had lost the receipt. However, their Butter Naan was priced at RM 4.90 each. The bread was good and they were generous with the butter as well. Soft and delicious and my rating for this shall be 8/10. 

Chicken Tikka 4 Pieces @ RM 12 90

Mutton Rogan Josh @ RM 23.90
Their Chickken Tikka was marvellous. The meat was tender and it was so juicy. Amazing marination as well. This one surely deserves a rating of 9/10. Their Mutton Rogan Josh was good too but I have definitely tasted better ones. My rating for this shall be 8/10. 

Malabar Fish Curry @ RM 21.90

Masala Tea @ RM 5.90
Their Malabar Fish Curry however wasn't up to my expectations. I had expected more spices to be in the dish and this preparation however was more mild to me. 6/10 would be my rating for this preparation. Their Masala Tea was decent and my rating for this shall be 7/10. 

Restoran Jaipur Mahal is a lovely place to bring your family as well as your clients. The ambiance here is wonderful and the service levels are excellent. Food is good and they have a huge spread of vegetarian as well as non vegetarian dishes to choose from. Their prices aren't cheap but acceptable levels.

Seow Man Hot Soups @ Semenyih, Selangor

In my previous blog entries, I have posted a number of places in Kajang that is famous for the Hot Soup which is native to Kajang. In today's blog, let me introduce another such place, except that this place is located in Semenyih. 

Show Man Hot Soups in Semenyih

Clean And Organised Set Up

This restaurant is located in Taman Teknologi Kajang which is where the Billion Supermarket is. It is located inside an industrial area. Nevertheless, if you use Waze or Google Maps, it shall accurately bring you to this restaurant. The set up is simple and the premises is clean and tidy. 

The Menu
Their menu is fairly straightforward. These are the only items that are available at this restaurant. It is good that they have decided to keep the offering simple and only offer food items which they are good at. Pries seem reasonable too. 

Hot Soup @ RM 15.00

Rice Wine Chicken @ RM 15.00
They have all the items that the other two restaurants that are famous for the very same dishes and prices are quite similar. To start with, we had the Kajang famous Hot Soup that comes with chicken and pork. Taste wise, it was very similar to their competitors and I found it to be pretty good. Balanced flavours and surely one to make you perspire. My rating for this shall be 8/10. Similarly, their Rice Wine Chicken was also good. Made the very same way, it tasted almost identical to the other places that sell the same. Again, 8/10 shall be my rating for this dish. 

Pork Spring Roll @ RM 11.00
This Pork Spring Roll is another speciality that is native to Kajang and the preparation here once again was very similar. Crispy skin and juicy fillings. You don't even need the dip sauce as it was that good. My rating for this shall be 9/10. 

The Bill
Just like the other restaurants in Kajang that are famous for their Hot Soup, this place too offers the very same at reasonable prices. Taste wise, they were identical to their competitors and we absolutely loved it. For those of you who find Kajang to be little far, you could alternatively visit this restaurant that is located in Semenyih. Good food and reasonable prices. 

Address: No. 50, Jalan 1/9, Bandar Teknologi Kajang, 43500 Semenyih, Selangor.

Business Hours: 1000 - 2200 Wednesday - Monday (Closed on Tuesdays)

Restoran Mee Kai Kee @ Kampung Attap, Kuala Lumpur

Restoran Mee Kai Kee has been around for a very long time and their house specialty is their Steamed Kampung Chicken and Curry Mee. This restaurant is located in Kampung Attap and you would surprised to learn that they are open daily from 6 pm till 2 am. 

The Restaurant In Kampung Attap
We were here slightly after midnight and the place was packed with customers. There are a few tables indoors and the rest of the tables are placed along the walkway and on the street. True enough, their Steamed Kampung Chicken was the top seller followed by their Curry Mee. Lighting is a little bad here and as such, I have to apologise for the quality of the photographs. Ordering was simple, we had ordered a few bowls of Curry Mee, a plate of Steamed Kampung Chicken and a plate of Siew Yuk. 

Steamed Kampung Chicken @ RM 29.00

Siew Yuk @ RM 7.00
Their Steamed Kampung Chicken was priced at RM 29.00 for half a chicken. Though it may seem steep at first glance but I felt that it was quite reasonable. Moreover, this restaurant is famous for it and as long as it is good, the price is worth paying. I found their chicken to be quite tender and the steaming was very nicely done. My rating for this shall be 8/10. Their Siew Yuk was decent too. Slightly on the fatty side but the crispy skin followed by the juicy meat was a heavenly blend. Again, another one that I would rate at 8/10. 

Curry Mee @ RM 4.20 per bowl
Their Curry Mee was also good and I have to apologise for the bad photo quality. The noodles came with lots of tofu and fish balls. The curry was light but good. My rating for this shall be 7/10.

Restoran Mee Kai Kee is a restaurant that is very famous for their Steamed Kampung Chicken and Curry Mee. Despite being only open from 6 pm, the place is always crowded even at around 1 am. Good food and reasonable prices. 

Address: No. 141, Jalan Maharajalela, Kampung Attap, 50150 Kuala Lumpur.

Business Hours: 1800 - 0200 Daily
