Shout out to all of you who love Indian cuisine as much as I do!
A few weeks ago, my Dolphin Angel (mDA) and I went to our favorite Indian restaurant, named RSMY Restaurant located in Jalan Medan Tuanku, Kuala Lumpur.
Been there a couple of times, but never thought about blogging this restaurant tho…until lately, I feel so excited enough to share my review with you, girls.
Sharing is caring…right? 😉
Oh, by the way…I’m not getting paid for this review. So, girls… you can definitely trust on whatever I’m about to say, aite?
The restaurant that we went is their second franchise after Setapak, Kuala Lumpur. The third franchise is in Bandar Baru Bangi, Selangor. I bet there will be more franchises to be opened soon!
The restaurant started getting fame for their undisputed cheese naan. But as you could see on the franchise that we went, they highlighted beriani rice as on their signboard.
I assumed every franchise has their own specialty.
For this visit, we ordered:
Garlic cheese naan;
Chicken tandoori; and
Lesson learned from our previous visits.
“Do not order too much because the foods portion are big!”.
The service is fast. Our foods were served in a few minutes and they are all fresh and hot!
Silence filled in the atmosphere as we dig our foods until we burped at the end of the meal.
There is no denial about their cheese naan. It is the best cheese naan I have ever had. The naan bread is so fluffy and there are lots and lots of cheese filling that ooey out like a lava.
The chicken tandoori was well marinated and there were no MSG or colouring added. How did I know that? Because, compared to other chicken tandooris I ate before, this RSMY’s chicken tandoori colour is less red and the color doesn’t lingered in my fingers after I washed my hand (I eat chicken with my hands). The meat is fresh and juicy. I could taste all the spices in every bites.
It’s finger lickin’ good!
I can’t comment much on the lamb shank because I don’t really like to eat mutton, but one thing I know for sure is mDA ordered this menu every time he came here. He said the meat was so soft and tender.
So girls, check out this place if you are in Kuala Lumpur;
RSMY Best Cheese Naan Lot 11&13, Jalan Medan Tuanku, Medan Tuanku, 50300 Kuala Lumpur.

Last weekend, my Dolphin Angel and I went to try out a peranakan chinese (also referred to as baba nyonya) restaurant which was located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
What is peranakan chinese?
Yes…I know some of you never heard about it before.
Peranakan chinese are the descendants of chinese immigrants who came to the Malay archipelago including British Malaya(now Malaysia and Singapore) between the 15th and 17th centuries . (From Wikipedia).
They talk, dress, eat and live like the Malayan.
When we talk about the peranakan cuisine, their foods has the combination of Malay and Chinese, making it remarkable for their unique taste.
The Sarang Cookery Restaurant that we went has a pretty decent decoration and there are a few local herbs and spices planted in front of the restaurant.
Hmmm…non artificial herbs in the foods?
It took us quite some times on selecting our meals. Goshhh…everything looks so tempting! Wish I could eat all of them.
And we selected a nyonya assam laksa, chicken rendang, chicken lobak and nasi ulam.
The first meal that were served was nasi ulam. OMG!!! that is a huge platter! The white rice in the middle was surrounded by the local herbs. We need to mix the rice with those herbs together like you are doing prosperity toss on a platter of yee sang! This meal is very vegan-friendly!
The rest of the meals came to our table after a few minutes later.
I’m not going to talk too much about the rest of the foods that we ordered but all I can say is…
Girls, you should try them!
If you are wondering where the heck is this restaurant, here is the address for you to explore:
8 Jalan Galloway, Kuala Lumpur.
Mon-Sat, 7.30am-9.30pm (breakfast served in the morning, heavier meals from lunch onwards).
p/s: The restaurant runs a cooking class too for those who are interested to learn how to cook peranakan foods 😉
A few weeks ago, we were wandering around Kuala Lumpur City without any mission. Something that we rarely do as we hate the idea of being stuck in traffic jammed and be in the middle of the crowds at the KL malls.
After a few hours of walking in the mall, I started to feel hungry.
And of course, most of the restaurants were full house. It was lunch hours anyway…everybody’s getting hungry.
From hungry to hangry…that was how I felt at that time. So, we decided to go to Starhill, KL which is located next to the mall I went.
Less peoples came to Starhill, KL because there were limited stores in that mall and those stores are luxury brands (which cost a few month of my salaries to even buy a piece of their handkerchief, hohoho).
There are many of restaurants to dine in at the lower ground level and my eyes were scanning wildly at each of them. And alas!!! I saw Sentidos Gastrobar right next to a Chinese restaurant.
Looking at the menu…
I could eat everything in the menu with this empty stomach, but I chose chicken quesadilla and Spanish seafood soup and my Dolphin Angel decided to eat a fully loaded nachos.
My! Oh! My!
It took almost an hour of waiting before our foods are served. Thank God the foods were good! Like a real Spanish homemade foods (as per claimed by my Dolphin Angel).
Look at how big the portion our meals!
Overall, we were satisfied with our meals, despite the slow service. The restaurant are neat and the interior decoration is done in a time-honored Spanish style, with a modern twist. If you are interested to try some Spanish foods around KL, do not hesitate to try:

The Chinese New Year fever is still on! Chinese New Year sales are everywhere and every restaurant came out with Chinese New Year meal edition.
I am not really a food hunter, but once I started to crave for certain food, I would be tracking them until my last breath!
Sounds so dramatic, aite?
I was craving for chicken rice this afternoon. The famous Chee Meng Chicken Rice Shop in Bukit Bintang, to be precise. As I googled and call the restaurant, I find out that the restaurant was closed due to the Chinese New Year Celebration.
Well…of course, silly Farah! They are Chinese!
And so, I decided to go to The Chicken Rice Shop which is located nearby my home.
As I was reading the menu, my attention was caught at the pictures of the Chinese New Year meal set.
My! Oh! My!
The pictures make me drooled!
The meal set (1 pax) contains:
A bowl of rice;
2 pieces of red pepper chicken;
A plate of pak choy vegies in oyster sauce; and
A bowl of soup.
Without thinking twice, I ordered that. With extra side dish, i.e a plate of pai tee. And for the beverage, I ordered a glass of Kuching three-layered tea.
The chicken was cooked in Chinese style…I would say like kung pao chicken. Some of the ingredients are similar, for example, the dried chili, cashew nuts, spring onions, etc.
Overall, it’s pretty economical to order set, rather than buying ala-carte. But if you asked me, “would you order this red pepper chicken again?” I would say…
