But due to the Pandemic, Quickie Food Truck has stopped operating from its truck but mainly on caterings and online orders.
I was happy to hear that they back in their Food Truck! Few days ago, I decided to pay a visit. Still within Uptown Avenue Seremban 2, but its now located beside White 32 dental clinic / next to the former Bros Cafe.
They are back with a brand new look! Checkout their new revamped truck! Looking so cool and bold.
*Peek a boo…I see you..* The new spot has seating place for diners too.
Checkout their new menu which offers more choices from starters to mains.
From left (clockwise) Devil’s Curry Chicken Spaghetti (spicy), Chicken Rendang Spaghetti Spaghetti (mild spicy), Creamy Butter Milk Chicken Spaghetti (non-spicy) and Nasi Lemak with Peri-Peri Chicken.
All the spaghetti tasted as good as before! And the Nasi Lemak was yummy too. Do give it a try if you are nearby this area.
Tuesdays – Saturdays
6pm to 1am
I’m glad to know that Quickie Food Truck has made a comeback…. filling more happy tummies ^_^ ^_^
Mesmerizing the childhood memories at A&W Seremban.
When I was a kid, there weren’t much choices of fast food joints especially in Seremban unlike big city in Kuala Lumpur. There weren’t Mcdonalds, KFC, Burger King, Pizza Hut & etc. I remember vividly there was only Grandy’s (not sure if you could remember this name. Its no longer exist here anymore. The cinnamon roll and mashed potato was good!), and A&W which hang on till today.
Other than ice cream in root beer, ice cream on waffle, A&W in Seremban used to serve ice creams during 80s and 90s. I could fondly remember that banana split and chocolate ice cream with chocolate syrup served in a glass cup! They were my favorite. Not forgetting the mint flavor ice cream! Unfortunately they are no longer having that ice cream kiosk today.
A&W restaurant in Seremban is a stand alone outlet located at the Lake Garden Seremban, its an iconic landmark in Seremban since year 1978. I also remember the playground which was demolished to give way for drive-thru. *Sigh…kinda sad though.
On year 2015, A&W Seremban made an announcement about closing its door to make way for renovation. It created a huge beeline patronizing the outlet for the last time.
The renovation took quite sometime. Which many of us earlier thought its gonna be closed permanently.
Year 2022, A&W with its new outlook! Apparently it is the first A&W in Malaysia having Jamaica Blue coffee together.
Let’s take a look on the interior. Looking so vibrant with the retro touch.
I’m gonna try the fried chicken. I heard some of my friends commented that it is nice!
Come to A&W, Root Beer is something you must order lor….
Be it with ice cream or without.
Ini macam barulah YES! The aroma and flavor is so fresh, that its different from those canned ones.
A&W has added rice on their menu to suit the Asian taste bud, its called Nasi Aroma, (with sambal on it).
I did not put high expectations on it. But since some of my friends said they preferred A&W fried chicken over the others famous fast food outlets. Hence I gave it a try.
A&W’s fried chicken (Golden Aroma Chicken) was surprisingly nice! The skin was crispy and not too salty. Meat was tender and not bland. You gotta dine in there to taste its freshest point.
Then comes to Coney Dog, which is one of their signature item since last time! Those days it was only available in Beef. I am very happy that now they’ve added chicken selection on Coney Dog, for non-beef eaters.
Not forgetting also the waffle! Its a classic item too. I still think the waffle is nice compared to some cafes which charge you at high price. Introducing the new flavor, Cendol Gula Melaka. Do you know that this waffle is now available in cup too? Its more convenient for takeaway orders.
If malam-malam mau supper, can opt for Drive-Thru too. 🙂
– 3 tbsp flour – 4 tbsp Milo – 2 tbsp sugar – 3 tbsp butter, melted – 1 large egg – 1 tbsp hot water
1) Dissolve the Milo in hot water water and mix well. 2) In another bowl, mix the egg and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. 3) Add the flour. Stir until mixed. 4) Add the Milo mixture in and mix until evenly combined. 5) Then add in the melted butter. Mix thoroughly. 6) Pour the mixture into the moulds. 7) Steam in a preheated steamer for about 8 minutes. (The cooking time might vary depends on the size of your moulds.)
Alternatively you can make extra to refrigerate it, to consume later just heat up in the microwave.
It is a very easy steamed lava cake recipe. Most importantly it doesn’t involve an oven! HAHAHA! Jom try it at home with your children too.
My first post of the year…… Wishing everyone Gong Xi Fa Cai!!
What is your criteria of a good claypot chicken rice?
For me, a good claypot chicken rice has to be flavorful, rice evenly coated with sauce, not lumpy (soft).
Nowadays its very rare to find those claypot chicken rice that slow cooked using charcoal fire stove.
In Seremban, there’s this place serving claypot chicken rice which claimed as Kampar Claypot Chicken Rice. I heard that the owner is from Kampar. By far, this is the best claypot chicken rice in Seremban. Located at Taman Bidara, behind of Do Re Mi Baking Academy.
The claypot chicken rice was cooked upon order. Therefore be prepared for some waiting time. This place is usually quite full during lunch hour (before Covid).
I like the aroma of the rice when it was served piping hot. Rice is cooked with marinated chicken, Chinese sausage, not forgetting the salted fish for extra flavors then sprinkled with scallions. (RM9 for single size serving.)
What I liked most about this place is that the claypot chicken rice is served with pickled shallots and cili padi to give you some crunchiness.
Another dish that I like is the Yellow Wine Chicken which make you sweat. LOL!
Besides that, they also served some simple blanched vegetables, steamed soup (watercress soup, lotus root soup, etc….may varies daily).
You can give them a call to place order so that you don’t have to wait long.

So sorry for the long overdue post. I actually made this trip end of last year, but didn’t have the time or mood to write. 🙂
On end of December 2019, in conjunction to Christmas celebration I had a short 3D2N gateway in KL with my family. On day 2 we skipped the hotel’s breakfast and decided to go Petaling Street for makan-makan and jalan-jalan. We have not been to Petaling Street for so many years! Oh my….. LOL!
To avoid the traffic and car park problem, I decided to use Grab, e-hailing to go to Petaling Street. Hehe….
Now with roofing over, at least not so hot. Stalls were still handled by foreigners and most of the stalls are selling the almost similar stuffs…imitation branded bags, sport shoes, watches, clothing and also souvenirs. Most of the stalls will be open by 10am.
Hon Kee Porridge Petaling Street,
was our first stop for breakfast. It is one of the oldest porridge stall here. Located nearby the famous Air Mata Kucing.
varieties of porridge are available here at an affordable price.
We ordered Pork & Fried Intestine Porridge and Raw Fish Porridge for sharing. They are served hot! Both are great. But I personally like the Raw Fish Porridge…which I felt nostalgic and rare. It is undeniable that their porridge texture is smooth.
Other than porridge, Chee Cheong Fun (steamed rice roll) is also available here.
I am not really a fan of Chee Cheong Fun. But their chee cheong fun is quite nice. Not only the texture is smooth…the sauce also is quite special. Its different from the usual chee cheong fun sauce.
Bored of common chee cheong fun with sauce? Tried something different here. Fried chee cheong fun with egg and minced pork. 🙂
Address: 93, Jalan Hang Lekir, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur Operation Hours: 4AM – 2.30pm
Right in front of the porridge stall, there is a small stall selling these freshly fried Sweet Potato Balls.
As we walk along the Petaling Street, we also spotted a friendly lady selling Mua Chee. Her version comes with variety flavors.
Mua Chee is the Chinese version of ‘mochi’. It is made of steamed glutinous rice then coated with fine peanuts. It’s a popular street snack. You can give it a try…but I personally don’t quite like this texture , because the texture is tougher. I preferred the goey version. hehe….
Next, we came over this cart selling Roasted Duck. Saw few people was waiting for their turn to buy. Hence we decided to buy 1/2 duck to try. Mom said the duck tasted good. (roast duck is one of mom’s favorite)
As we walked further, we came along a street selling flowers….fresh flowers. I heard friends been saying fresh flowers are selling at reasonable price at Petaling Street. (In pic, uncle was unpacking the fresh Gerberras. Do you like Gerberra?)
We were hunting for Hawker Chan for our next makan stop. Then we passed by this beautiful temple called, “Kuan Ti Temple“. This temple is listed as one of the “5 Must-Visit Chinese Temples in KL”.
“Kuan Ti Temple is a 121 year-old Taoist temple located along Jalan Tun HS Lee. An easily recognisable building with a bright orange façade, it is dedicated to Guandi, the Taoist God of War and Literature; there is a red-faced, long beard statue of Guandi at the rear of the temple.”
Kuan Ti Temple
Opening Hours: Daily, 07:00 – 19:00 (opening hours may vary, so please check with the temple keeper)
Location: Right across the street from Popular Bookstore, and just opposite Sri Mahamariamman Temple.
Address: Along Jalan Tun H. S. Lee
Found it! We came to
Hawker Chan, Petaling Street
for lunch. We wanted to try the chicken rice here. Apparently it is Singapore’s Michelin-starred chicken rice. (Hawker Chan was awarded one Michelin star by the Michelin Guide Singapore in 2016.)
Known for “cheapest Michelin-starred meal in the world”, Hawker Chan is famous for their soy sauce chicken rice.
Self service ordering system. Just like fast food. The environment is good and clean with air-conditioned.
Simple 1 page menu. Prices considered reasonable for this location.
Soya Sauce Chicken Rice (RM8.60), doesn’t look appealing. 😦
Sorry to say Chicken looked dry and rice not quite aromatic either. Nothing to shout about tho.
Char Siew Rice (RM9.80). Char Siew was one better side. Lean and tender.
The chili sauce, as you can see its quite watery….
Instead, we liked the Papaya Tea Soup with Pork Rib (RM7). It was nourishing and flavorful.
Have you tried Hawker Chan KL? Some of my friends who have tried the original stall in Singapore said it tasted good. Probably when something is franchised or managed by outsiders…the taste will be off.
Address: 135, Jalan Petaling, City Centre, 50000 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
Operation hours:- Open daily from 10.30am – 9pm

Bunn Choon Egg Tarts, Petaling Street
I read that Bunn Choon Egg Tarts are nice. So, we decided to buy some.
The 2-storey vintage building painted in vibrant yellow and blue color attracted many visitors. It is easily sighted next to Kwai Chai Hong.
There are also table and chairs for customers who wants to dine in.
One of the best egg tart in KL. Apparently the egg tart recipe was passed down since their establishment in 1893.
You can smell the aromatic of these freshly baked pastries.
We decided to try both skin flavors of egg tarts and also the char siew sou.
We love both egg tarts and char siew sou.
Address: No.8 Lorong Pangung, 50000 Kuala Lumpur (Opposite Pasar Seni MRT Station, about 5 minutes walk)
Operation hours: 7am – 3pm
After buying the egg tarts, we came to
Kwai Chai Hong, Petaling Street
which is just next to Bunn Choon.
Although this area is not big, but the artist fully utilized the walls with beautiful murals and setup to bring visitors a journey back in time to the 1960s golden era of KL Chinatown. Now, in conjunction to Mid-Autumn festival, they’ve put up some beautiful lanterns with Rabbit theme. (https://www.kwaichaihong.com/)
We only managed to cover half day trip. I hope we have bigger space for our stomach to fill more food. Perhaps next trip.
*Coming post will blog about a fail proof cake.
For lazy people like me. 😀
I’ve missed out this post. I thought I should blog about this place because I felt there’s something nice to share about this cafe.
End of December 2019, we went shopping at MyTOWN Shopping Centre in KL.
We also visited IKEA Cheras, connected via MyTOWN Shopping Centre. We strolled around and goofed around too 😉
Then, when it comes to tea break I decided to try out Midorie x The Owls Cafe. This cafe was put in KIV list during my previous visit to the mall. Hence I decided to dine here this round.
Midorie x The Owls Cafe, is often crowded over the weekends. Thus I was put in waiting list to wait for a vacant table. Luckily the waiting time was quick. In less than 10 minutes, they called me.
The dining area is considered small compared to the other outlets.
This cafe’s signature item has to be the WAFFLE. If you are a fan of waffle… I ensured that you will have tough choice. Whether you like it sweet or savory. I couldn’t decide. I wished there were more people to share with me so that I can order more. LOL. :-p
Although it was crowded, but food were served quite fast.
Milo Dinosaur – RM15
Milo never goes wrong with anything. The waffle has a nice texture and not overly sweet batter. Crispy outside and fluffy inside. Topped with dark chocolate ice cream, koko krunch, marshmallow, and milo powder.
Iced Latte – RM12
They even have kids menu! wow….
Junior Red Bolog (RM10) , Macaroni chicken bolognese, topped with torched cheese.
Macaroni was cooked al-dente, whilst evenly coated with chicken bolognese sauce. It was so flavorful and well-balanced.
Chicky Bites (RM8) Fried Chicken Nuggets and homemade chicken bites.
Crispy yet tender chicken bites and the nuggets that I was eating consists of real chicken meat. Unlike some fast food joint.
Besides that, I felt that portion of kids meals were quite generous too.
All in all, the waffle was just like how I wanted it to be, the thick kind. Therefore, when I have a chance I will definitely revisit to try more waffles 🙂
p/s: I saw people around me were all having different kind of dishes, and it looked yummy. :-p
Recently the hall area of 森美兰海南会馆, Hainan Association Negeri Sembilan has turned into a makan place for public. Serving Hainan food and Hainan Coffee.
Social media news spread faster than newspaper. I only knew about this hidden place after some of my friends shared it on Facebook.
I was not working on one of the weekday, so I told my mom that I’m bringing her to this new place for breakfast.
After dropping Jet at kindergarten, we went straight here with the help of waze navigation and arrived at around 9am.
How can one not try the Hainan Coffee. It was prepared by an elderly man. We had Kopi-C served in this old-school cup. Feeling so nostalgic. The coffee was rich and aromatic.
Not forgetting also the Hainan Toast with butter and kaya spread. Both drinks and toast from the same stall. Total was RM5.30.
Food and drinks were mend by different owner.
The 1 page menu were printed in purely Chinese. LOL!! 😀 😀
The kind boy whom took our food order read one by one to us.
Mom had Hainan Mee (RM6). Noodles were cooked al-dente and flavorful. You can spot some choy sum, sliced fishcake and pork.
I had Hainan Chicken Chop (RM12). It looks just like the traditional version of Hainan Chicken Chop, slab of fried deboned chicken thigh with generous brown sauce. Chicken was tender and sauce was not too salty or too watery. Nowadays, its rare to get nice Hainan Chicken Chop. At price of only RM12, I would say ‘what’s more to complain’? (Based on recent update, September 2020:- Several friends commented that their Hainan Chicken Chop not nice. Inconsistent)
While eating, I also noticed quite many people ordered the Wat Tan Hor. Perhaps, I should try that in future and update it here. (September 2020 Update:- The Wat Tan Hor and Hainan Chicken Rice was nice to eat)
Furthermore there is one Hainan Chicken Rice stall. Wanted to dapao after smelling the aromatic boiling rice. But was told the rice still not ready. 😦 😦
Honestly, I preferred such breakfast over some overpriced cafe breakfast. Typical Asian? Well, everyone has their own choice. 🙂
森美兰海南会馆 NEGERI SEMBILAN HAINAN ASSOCIATION
Address: No. 30-31,Jalan Datuk Abdul Malek, 70000 Seremban, Negeri Sembilan
Open daily (7.30am – 4.00pm) Closed on Mondays
*solely based on writer's own opinion*
These days, the weather is so hot and sunny!
It would be nice to have an icy drink or icy dessert to cool down.
Those days, icy dessert would be ABC. But nowadays we have more choices, we called it ATAS ABC (because nicer environment, price also double)hehe…. But there’s a proper name to it…which is Kakigori or Ais Kepal Jepun. 🙂
“Kakigōri (かき氷) is a Japanese shaved ice dessert flavored with syrup and a sweetener. The origins of kakigōri date back to the 11th century, when blocks of ice saved during the colder months would be shaved and served with sweet syrup to Japanese aristocracy during the summer. Kakigōri became more accessible in the 19th century, when ice became more widely available to the public during the summertime. “
For Seremban folks, you can hoop over to MyKori Dessert Cafe for this Japanese shaved ice dessert. Located at Centrio Seremban 2 (opposite Mydin S2).
MyKori has been growing rapidly over the years since the first outlet at Puchong Jaya in year 2016. It has now over 60 outlets throughout Malaysia. (WOW! Amazing!) MyKori Dessert Cafe is a place suitable for young and old.
Types of desserts available here. Serving not just shaved ice, but also drinks, toast and Croissant Taiyaki (a unique Japanese pastry, a fish shaped snack, made of croissant with varied sweet and savoury fillings).
Their Kakogori comes in 2 sizes. Large and Mini. I chose mini because I wanted to try more flavors. The mini is ideal for 1-2 sharing.
Above are Mango Yogurt Kakigori(made from yogurt ice, mango puree, mango cubes)and Mont Mauve Kakigōri(Made with mix berry ice, fresh strawberries, blueberries & raspberry. Topped up with whipped cream and kuriaro rose powder.)
Red Melon Kakigori (RM26) only comes in one size. Too bad that they no longer serve in watermelon shell. Hence the serving looked smaller. (Made with milk ice, watermelon, nata de coco as well as lychee).
If you are a fruits person, the above choices are quite refreshing.
Left – Chocoreo Kakigori(Made with milk ice, real oreo biscuits, oreo crumbs and chocolate sauce). I don’t really fancy this one because not much taste, more like eating oreo biscuits with ice.
Right – Popcorn Kakigori(With milk ice, kuromitsu jelly, premium caramel popcorn as well as caramel toffee sauce).
The ice is quite fine and smooth.
Other than kakigori, I also tried the Chocolate Banana Toast (RM19)
Thick toast with generous chocolate sauce, topped with 2 scoops of ice cream and served with slices of bananas. For ice cream, I chose chocolate & Thai Tea flavor. Thai Tea flavor ice cream tasted weird. Regretted choosing that flavor. 😦
As for the toast, the bread texture was quite nice. Smooth and not dry.
Jet will be very happy whenever I mentioned coming here for dessert. Above are compiled in several visits. 😀 😀
Will try more flavors in future.

Do you like eating Ayam Penyet? Similar to Ayam Penyet, Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus is available in Seremban 2. (for Seremban readers, there is another outlet located at Senawang) Both are popular dish in Indonesia.
Both Ayam Penyet and Ayam Gepuk are quite similar. But the main difference will be the chili.
Ayam Gepuk Pak Gembus originally from Jogjakarta since year 2013, opened its first outlet here in Malaysia on 31st August 2017.
Feeling curious about this bright lighted shop. Hence I decided to step into the store to check out what is their specialty.
The one page menu was simple and very straight forward. Looks like they only serve 1 dish. Their signature Ayam Gebuk. Ya…only this ayam.
You can choose the level of spiciness. On the menu shows the numbers of red cili padi used on each spicy level. Usually they will serve the pounded chili on top of the fried 1/4 chicken. But you can request to put aside.
Price start from RM8.90 for basic Set A which consist 1/4 chicken, raw cabbage, cucumber & white rice, while Set D comes with additional fried cabbage, gizzard, fried tofu and fried tempe (a traditional Indonesian soy product, that is made from fermented soybeans).
I ordered Normal & Spicy.
Before you begin to dig in, add on some kicap manis (sweet soy sauce) to enhance the flavors.
Tagline: Tentukan Sendiri Pedasmu, Anda Pedas, Kami Puas!
(Define Your Own Spiciness, You feel spicy, We’re Satisfied!)
Please do not underestimate the ‘Normal’ spicy level. Although I could take spicy food, I still felt the burning feeling in my mouth. Apart from the whole new level of spiciness, the chili and chicken tasted good too. Jet enjoyed eating the chicken with only white rice & kicap manis.
If you are dining in, feel free to add rice and sambal without extra charge.
What’s so special about the chili (sambal) here? I was told that the sambal is freshly made and was prepared in batches. Mixture of chili, garlic, chili oil are done on a stone mortar dish. On far left of photo, the light brown color is cashew nut sauce. Both chili and cashew nut sauce will be combined in the sambal.
Verdict : Chicken was tasty and succulent. The sambal was really nice and spicy! Only downside is that, no other food choice except ayam gebuk+rice.
My late grandfather loves Butter Coffee very much. Instead of adding the traditional creamer or condensed milk into the cup of hot black coffee, he added a slice of butter. I can’t brain how good it was when I was just a teenage girl then.
Lately, I got to know about this new kopitiam in Seremban old town after my friend shared about his meal there. Apparently their signature coffee is ‘butter coffee’. Without much hesitation, I paid a visit there for breakfast together with my mom.
Located along the busy road of Jalan Dato Bandar Tunggal, opposite HSBC Bank.
From front till the back of premise, there were total around 20 tables. Quite ample of seats.
A one page menu showing list of food and beverages available here.
Signature Butter Coffee
A slice of butter was added to this cup of hot coffee. Stir the aromatic coffee when its hot and drink it while its still hot. The butter naturally gives a smooth finish and creamy mouthfeel to the coffee. This drink definitely reminds me of my late grandfather.
Apart from the coffee, I also tried the Ham Egg Toast. However I don’t quite like to overdone egg yolk. Perhaps I shall request for well done yolk. 😀
Whilst a stall here selling Yong Tau Foo, Chee Cheong Fun, Nasi Lemak and Fried Bihun.
Yong Tau Foo – RM1.50 per piece
Fishball – RM1.30 per piece
Chee Cheong Fun – RM1.00 per piece
I was eyeing on this plate of Nasi Lemak with Minced Pork for RM5. Instead of pairing with fried chicken, minced pork as condiment works well too. It is very rare to see such combination.
Besides the nasi lemak, the chee cheong fun with curry gravy was quite good. Chee Cheong Fun has smooth texture, while the curry gravy was tasty. We mixed sweet sauce and curry gravy, mom said its tastier and balanced flavor this way. Meanwhile, the yong tau fu filling has mixture of fish & pork paste.
Apart from the above, steamed pao and some traditional steamed dim sum are available here too. Dim Sum selections were quite limited.
Some instagramable spots at Wong Fook Kopitiam.
Instead of modern cafes, its nice to see an old shop turned into a vintage kopitiam, drawing people of all ages.
For your info, I parked my car along Jalan Dato Lee Fong Yee and walked over. (Distance around 100m)
