Ah Seng Bak Kut Teh @ Subang Permai, Shah Alam http://www.eatophilia.com/ah-seng-bak-kut-teh-shah-alam/ Sat, 06 Jan 2018 02:37:00 +0000 http://www.eatophilia.com/?p=7400 They say two-thirds work and one-third play. This is true, so when CS and I had spent the weekend re-painting our house, we treated ourselves to herbal-rich Bak Kut Teh. Not in Klang, but in Shah Alam’s Ah Seng Bak Kut Teh.

Naturally, expectations ran high when Honolulu Cafe opened its first branch in Malaysia. Everyone anticipated to taste the same buttery egg tarts, as if what they ate in Hong Kong.

Thai Tuk Tuk @ Solaris Dutamas, Publika http://www.eatophilia.com/thai-tuk-tuk-solaris-dutamas-publika/ Tue, 28 Nov 2017 01:38:47 +0000 http://www.eatophilia.com/?p=7323 Good Thai food is hard to come by in Klang Valley, let alone thai street food. I have soft spot for street foods from any part the world, particularly Thai food. Something about eating in a non-frill style and delicious fast meal where I can even eat alone, without being awkward. It is such setting […]

Bone & Pot is our usual favourite, but we decided to try a new place. Dian Huo Xin Wo Steamboat Restaurant had stayed pretty much off my ‘foodie-radar’ for years.
