I’ve visited many new cafes and restaurants, and revisited many of those “new” cafes and restaurants. I’ve cafe hopped from cafe to cafe, and dined at various restaurants.

These are the places I’ve eaten and drank in 2016.

Moim Modern Korean Cuisine
Dae Jang Gum
Streat Thai
Inside Scoop
Bubba Gump Shrimp Co
Sid’s Pub

Was very blessed to have the opportunity to travel to London and Oxford in the United Kingdom this year September. Miles away from home for a short period of time. Different culture. Different food. Wholesome experience. The slideshow below is a summary and snapshot of the foods I ate in the UK. Happy sliding!

The Fish Bowl
Go Noodle House
KGB – Killer Gourmet Burgers
Patty & Pie
Oiso Korean Traditional Cuisine & Cafe
MM Cafe
IKEA Meatballs

Here’s a SPECIAL MENTION for My Neighbour Is A Chef!

It’s been awhile since I blogged about something edible. Sheepishly, I did not know what to blog about. I had a tough time figuring out what to blog about. It took some time to digest this meaty information and details. I believe it’s going to be juicy and chewy.

Subject to author’s tastebuds

1. 6 2 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak

Going by its name, this restaurant specialises in grills and nasi lemaks. Nonetheless, its lamb chop is worth taking note. 6 2 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak is a corner lot in Aman Suria. It is directly opposite Lotus Curry House.

Despite facing stiff competition from other nearby Western food restaurants – Betty’s Midwest Restaurant, Kalamazoo Restaurant & Cafe and the newly opened Patty & Pie – 6 2 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak holds its own. 

In addition to its lamb chop, its Apple Crumble dessert is also a MUST TRY. A mixture of soft and warm apple crumble and a cold vanilla ice cream crumbling in your mouth is something to salivate about. The stomach is at ease after the heavy digestion of the lamb chop.

2. Western Food, Restaurant Hup Soon

Unlike 6 2 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak, our second “lamb chop” spot is a hawker stall in a restaurant. The Western Food stall is situated IN Restaurant Hup Soon. Like 6 2 10 Grill & Nasi Lemak, Restaurant Hup Soon is a corner lot along Jalan SS3/29. The restaurant is located next to a Shell petrol station.

Going by its name – “Western Food” – this hawker stall specialises in all things, western food: fish & chips, chicken chop, lamb chop, etc.


In addition to its variety of tasty main courses, it also serves a scrumptious lamb stew soup. The lamb is so soft that when bitten, the meat tears apart slowly and gently. Different from the usual mushroom soups, this lamb stew soup brings a whiff of freshness.


3. Hanz Harvest & Cafe

Hanz is located in Damansara Jaya near KDU University College. It is a small cafe in the same row as Choy Kee Restaurant and Yu Yiee Restaurant, which are popular makan places frequented by KDU students.

The recommended dish is the lamb chop. Unlike other cafes (in mind), you are served NOT 1 but 2 lamb chops. Pretty generous, I would say.

In addition to the portion served, Hanz is also unique for its choice of sauce. You have the option of either Rosemary (below) or Apple mint (above) sauce. This is different from the usual mushroom, BBQ, and black pepper sauces. As you can see, even the chips served are different. Instead of serving french fries like other restaurants, Hanz replaces them with wedges.

Chicken Chop with Rosemary sauce

Given that the lamb chop is a set meal, soup is also included in the set. You have a choice of either pumpkin or mushroom soup. Especially the mushroom soup, the soup served is not what we would commonly expect – (Campbell) mushroom soup – the canned soup. Instead, the mushroom soup is the authentic and original wild mushroom soup.

Last but not least; save the best for the last

In conclusion, Hanz sets itself apart from 6 2 10 and the Western Food stall in terms of the main course. 6 2 10’s Apple Crumble is a MUST TRY dessert and the Western Food stall has scrumptious lamb stew soup.

If you have any recommendation(s), do leave them in the comments section below.
