#Travelpost: Top 5 goodies in Kuala Lumpur in 2017

Malaysia is well known for the wide spread of delicacies. When it comes to food, Malaysia is never short of it! Every corner and every street you turn in Malaysia, you'll definitely find some hidden gems tucked away from the hustles and bustles of city. Food unites us Malaysians and brings us closer together, regardless of age or race.

So, if you do not have any plans for the weekend, especialy to all Harry Potter fans, I would recommend you to watch the Harry Potter Film Concert Series at Plenary Hall, Kuala Lumpur Convention Center (KLCC)

Check it out below.

 The Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in concert

As this concert was initially to be scheduled on the 15th and 16th July 2017,  it is now rescheduled to be in November with the National symphony Orchestra performing John William's entire score live to picture. Those holding the existing tickets or an email confirmation from Ticketpro will remain valid for entry into the November concert.

If you're looking to fill your tummy before the concert, you can try out these 5 goodies which I've listed below!

1. ISETAN The Japan Store

At number 1, you can drop by Lot 10 and head up to level 5 to visit this recently opened Japan Store. Being the first ever Japan Store in KL, it has various interesting activites ranging from fashion to food! One of the popular thing in this Japanese Store is the Cheesecake which is soft, light, fluffy and melts in your mouth! I first heard about it when there is the hype on social medias. As a foodie, I knew I had to try it out and here's my verdict on it.

The cheesecake comes together with a scoop of cream which makes it smoother and lighter! The cheesecake has souffle like texture and quite addictive. You'll definitely crave for more after your first bite!

2. Restaurant Queens @ Peel Road

This coffee shop has been here for many years and its popular among the locals for its extensive range of food available. My favourite stall here is the "Ah Wah Grill Wings". The chicken wings here is tasty and has a perfect blend of sweet and salty taste to it which makes it a perfect snack :)

3. Wai Sek Gai @ Pudu

This is known to be the galore of street food in Klang Valley. However, one of the must try here would be the fried chicken just below "Martin Tuition center". 

This tasty and crunchy chicken is worth the wait as it is fried till golden brown and it is absolutely perfect! I remember back then it was a comfort food to me as I would always make it a point to eat it after my tuition classes every time!

Do remember to check out the mixed pork porridge, fried carrot cake, grilled tofu, and many more when you drop by!

4. Indobowl

Indomie lovers! Here's you to-go-to place - Indobowl @ Sungai Besi. If you're travelling in Malaysia in November, it'll just be the perfect timing to visit this eatery who recently created a craze among the locals for its in-famous indomie. 

 Indomie Mumbo Jumbo

Accompanied with 4 different types of meats and fried eggs. This sharing platter is just perfect for sharing among 2 to 3 pax! You definitely have to try the  "sambal" which comes in green and red. The red is a little bit more spicy compared to the green however the green has a more fragrant taste to it.

Check out my experience here!

5. Beef Noodle & Mixed pork porridge @ Jalan Tun HS LEE

This hidden gem that is popular among the locals would be this Soong Kee Beef Noodles. Founded by Siew Koy Soon 70 years ago, Soong Kee is now the second generation with its son, Siew Wei Hann now to carry on the family's heritage and to continue bringing this tasty and fragrant beef noodles to the locals tastebuds! 

The famous beef noodle at Jalan Tun HS Lee

There are 2 version of beef noodles here and what I usually order is the dry version (in the picture above). The dry version comes with a separate bowl of beef innards, beef balls and beef slices. What i particularly like about this is that the noodle is topped with a generous serving of minced beef with its homemade savoury "black sauce". In general, the beef noodle here is fair with fast service and reasonable price but i usually head to this place for the congee shop just outside who shares the same compound.

Loa Yau Kee Porridge serves many different types of porridge like the raw fish porridge, chicken porridge and the popular mixed pork porridge which has a generous portion of pork slices and other innards. You can also request to exclude the innards and have it with pork balls if you dislike innards. Be sure to be here well before closing time as it gets sold out quick every night!

Soong Kee Beef Noodle
