TTDI Ramadan Bazaar

Last chance for you to visit Ramadan Bazaar tomorrow!

This year, I visited the bazaar at TTDI. Don’t mind my after-work haggard look.

As told by one of the vendors, the stalls were set up as early as 2pm until around Buka Puasa hour.

One can’t help but face dilemma when given so many choices of food here!

Below are some of those I came across.

Fried roti bun (almost mistaken it as huge popiah XD).

Fried cempedak.


Ayam Golek which looked irresistible.

We bought ourselves one chicken – RM16.

Mini Roti Bom.

Dried sotong bakar.

Apam balik.

Putu Piring.


Hardcore Burger. RM20+ each as they use huge pieces of meat.

Murtabak. Comes in small and large.


Time to berbuka puasa!

Salam Aidilfitri and happy holiday people! :)

Restoran Kam Heong + PJ Walk @ 52, PJ New Town

During my unusual adventure to seek for a localized breakfast corner (because brunch food is too mainstream, meh), I accidentally discovered a cool chilling spot in PJ.

PJ Walk at Section 52 near the MBPJ.

Recently the roads there (Jalan Tengah) have been closed for pedestrian use. Surrounding the MBPJ are pavement roads where one could walk, cycle or even rollerblade.

Artsy decors every here and there. But how many of the locals would actually appreciate the beauty offered by our local municipal? Most of the time we are drowned by work-life-stress we hardly pay any attention to the surrounding :(

History lesson of the day: did you know that PJ town used to be a rubber estate? LOL.

Huge mural that depicts the multi-racial harmony.

Visit Kam Heong hawker centre (next to UOB) and order yourselves a few servings of the local food!

Penang prawn noodles. This dish is the locals’ favourite here apparently. I didn’t quite like it though cause the prawn taste was too strong for my liking. The serving portion was rather generous though.

Hakka Mee with char siew, siew yok, fish cake and fish balls. Thumbs up for this.

Don’t forget to try the charcoal roti bakar too.

Best time to visit is before noon. Secure yourself a table outdoor underneath the big tree. We had no doubt enjoyed our marvelous windy morning as we savoured the local delights.

Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ 大众烧肉 @ Plaza Faber, Taman Desa

Open air Japanese BBQ at affordable prices!

Hidden at the back alley of Plaza Faber Taman Desa, Gerai Makan Japanese BBQ is not unknown to the locals despite its obscure location. As the night falls, the silent neighbourhood is awakened by the smokey aroma and the chattering of BBQ lovers.

We arrived before sunset to secure a table. Expect a queue when you are visiting during weekends.

Though the area is a tad-bit shabby, the BBQ restaurant never loses its charm. In fact, it is the old-school localized concept that has made it so successful over the years.

Grill your chosen dish on the metal grill on top of red flaming coals. 

Gengkhis Khan – RM20
Japanese grilled mutton cooked with cabbage soup. Juicy, sweet and well-marinated.

Pork belly – RM10
Short rib – RM15
Mushroom foil yaki – RM10

The menu is quite extensive with BBQ dishes like different parts of pork, beef, lamb as well as teppanyaki, vegetables, ramen and other side dishes. BBQ dishes range between RM10-RM25 each.

Don’t forget to pair your BBQ with a bottle of Sake! RM16

Total costs that night was RM70++ Quite affordable compared to other commercialized BBQ restaurants.

You could get really hot and sweaty over there, but that’s the fun of outdoor BBQ after all!
