Potterhead, rejoice! There’s new cafe in Ipoh town which inspired by the famous Harry Potter movie and it was named Platform 9 1/2 Cafe (in Harry Potter movie, Platform 9 3/4 of Kings Cross Station was a spot where the students use to enters the magical world of witchcraft and wizardry). However, bear in mind that this cafe is not whatsoever directly associated or related with the official Harry Potter movie.
So, whats good here? Well, one thing I want to try is of course the Butterbeer (here in this cafe they name it Butterbrew, for obvious reason) which is a famous beverage in the movie. I’ve tried the original Butterbeer in World of Harry Potter in Universal Studios Japan, so I want to know whether this one taste the same.
Before I go with the photos, as usual, here’s my verdict of this cafe:-
It is a very long time already I didn’t have this level of excitement when I want to review a food spot. But this place, really, something I’ve been dreaming off to own for myself. A place with a good coffee, air conditioned, nice ambience surrounded by nature/trees/flowers. I have seen this kind of cafe a lot when I visited Seoul (Nami Island to be specific), Korea last time.
So, whats so special about this place? Well, first, it was located inside a plant nursery. The ambience was very nice, it was decorated and surrounded by flowers and trees and a method of planting known as Terrarium. Having coffee here was super nice!
Second, the food was awesome. They have plenty of choices in their menu and they served from breakfast to dinner. Truly, for me, the taste of the food tad bit above my expectation. But most of their menu are western foods. Hope one day they can offer some local delicacies too.
Well, before this, I’ve recommended some good places for you to have your breakfast in Ipoh, remember? You may refer it here: Restoran Mee Ipoh, Roti Canai Greentown. This time, still, I want to share another good place to have your breakfast in Ipoh, just to make you confuse which one you should go~ =P
To me, this restaurant is quite unique and worth to be review because they have plenty of choices on their menu which is for a breakfast only (I will list out menu later). So me and my family frequently go to this restaurant to have our breakfast, if we don’t know what to eat that morning~
Well, the name of the restaurant does not reflect their location, it was located at Shah Alam actually. But yeah, Klang or Kelang town is famous with one of their signature dish which is Lontong. Lontong was a well known Indonesian food, among Javanese people. There are several types of Lontong, but the one that are famous in Malaysia is known as Lontong Cap Go Meh in Indonesia. Well, you can read more about it here on Wikipedia.
or in English, Sri Utara Sup Power Restaurant @ Section 3 Shah Alam.
Urgh, I’m sooo lazy to update my blog~huhu. Slap myself to remind the head that “Without an effort, you will not succeed” or in other words “No Pain, No Gain~”. Henniwei, this time, I want to blog about one famous Northern dishes, Soup. It’s just not a plain soup obviously, there are Chicken Soup (Not like the English style chicken soup, see the image later), Cow Meat Soup, Cow Stomach Soup and etc. Sorry if my translation of the menu are wrong, I literally translate them. Please comment for better translation~=)
Anyway, if you came to Shah Alam, the most famous Northern Soup will be the restaurant named Ani Sup Utara. That restaurant is quite expensive compared to this. So this is an alternative to that restaurant. Anyway, I will blog about that restaurant later.
Straight to the point as I intended this to be just a short and simple post, this is my verdict on this restaurant.
FOOD: It was amazingly delicious. Not only me liked it, but also my friends. The menu looks same like Restaurant Ani Sup Utara menu, but Ani Sup had more bigger menu. For example, they have Nasi Sup Set (you may choose different kind of soup per set) which also available in Ani Sup Utara restaurant.
Food I recommend: Nasi Ayam (Chicken Rice), Bihun Sup Ayam Goreng (Mee Hoon Soup with Fried Chicken) and Moi Ayam/Daging (Moi, Kedahrian’s food).
ENVIRONMENT: Erm, typical small stall in Malaysia. But I really think they should enlarge their shop. Sometimes during lunch time they don’t have enough place for the customer.
PRICE: Affordable, not too expensive. Reasonable for a student like me to go for lunch frequently~=P
Anyway, enjoy the picture after the break~Location map included below.
In my previous post, I already talk about my stay at JW Marriott Hotel Kuala Lumpur. You may refer here to read it. This time, I want to review the breakfast they serve here. As before, I get to review this because they give free breakfast for one person if we stay here as hotel guest. But if you want to add up person or eat there without being a hotel guest, RM 55 per person will be charge to you.
Anyway, I think the food here is good yaww~And I was amazed by the variety of food they serve!! I wish I can try their Lunch and Dinner one day, huhu. It was worth for RM 55 of your penny, I presume.
Maybe I shall make some short list of the food they served here:
1) Pastries – Croissant, Muffins (4 flavours I think), Bread (Normal Bread, Oat, maybe more I’m not sure), etc.
2) Western – Sausage, Grilled Meat, Omelette, Scramble Egg, Baked Beans, etc.
3) Chinese – Wantan Mee, Lotus Pau, and some of it I not sure of the name.
4) Malay – Nasi Lemak (The sambal is sooo hot yaww~), some Kuih, Bacon Fried Rice (It’s Chicken Bakon for sure and I’m not sure whether this is Malay food or not,hehe), Fried Yellow Mee.
5) Indian – Various Roti Canai ie: Roti Pisang, Roti Telur, Roti Tisu, etc just like mamak stall. Got Chapatti, Tosai.
6) Arabian – Hummus (I just thought this maybe an Arabian food, but I’m not sure what it is. I’m reluctant to try it, huhu.)
7) Cereal – Got 6 different flavours I think.
8 ) Salad – I’m not trying this, because I don’t like it, but I just wow’ed at various vage you may choose. Also there are like 4 or more different cheese you may choose.
9) Fruits – So much choices, Pineapple, Watermelon, Apple, etc.
10) Dessert – Pancake, Waffle, etc.
11) Drinks – Hot: Coffee or Tea; Cold: there are like 12 various flavours of fruits juices.
Erm, I think that’s all I can remember for now. There are more for sure. I wonder what will they serve for Lunch and Dinner, there must a lot of food to choose. I think the food here is marvellous. Me like the food, maybe because there are a lot of choices they give and the treatment they give.
It feels good sometimes to eat at such an exclusive place. Maybe its a good place to treat your loved one here. There are also other restaurants available here. From what I see, there are Arabian food restaurant, Korean and Chinese food.
Anyway, I think this post will be fail without a picture as a prove for my words, so enjoy the food-toshot after the break. Just to warn you as usual, the amount of the picture is quite big, hope you can patiently wait for it to load.
The looks of the Restaurant.
Anyway, lets go one by one from what I take first, ok? First I tried the Western Breakfast, Omelette, Smoked Meat, Sausage and some Baked Beans. See the picture below.
So this is what I take.
Next…still hungry for some rice (typical malay appetite~huhu), so found this. Continue reading
or dalam Bahasa Melayu, Mungkin ini Roti Canai Tersedap di Ipoh, Perak.
Okay, this post title seems like I’m too confidence. Actually maybe yes and maybe not it all depends on your perception. For me, this is the best I’ve tried. I will told you why I said that later, maybe picture is worth to see rather than to say.
Rite, straight to the point, the stall I mention here named Hilmee Stall. It is located at Greentown food court, which is in front of Greentown Mall. It is very easy to go there. Will give you the map at the end of this post.
So, what’s so great about it?
Fuhhh, thats what I can say. The Roti Canai was very soft and Crispy. It was also very fluffy you know. Very like it. When eaten with its kuah, it will complete the dishes. However I like to eat it with the only kuah Sambal, I recommend you that.
The environment of the place is fairly clean. And prices can be considered normal lah. And I would like to remind you that this stall only open in the morning from Monday to Friday only okay, that’s make this stall exclusive or special. And you need to come early because they sold out quite fast.
