MAKAN MANA

Time Out Kuala Lumpur - - Makan Mana -

Good­ness Greens Café Eat­ing healthy is great for your body, but re­ally, if you were to do it ev­ery day, you’re prob­a­bly go­ing to get sick of it. There aren’t too many places like Good­ness Greens or La Juice­ria Su­per­foods where you can have as many op­tions; plus, there are some meals here that are quite full-on. WHAT TO OR­DER Go for their teriyaki chicken soba – the por­tions are gen­er­ous and you’re al­ways full but with­out feel­ing too je­lak. Jalan Datuk Su­laiman, TTDI (03 7732 0325/fb.com/ good­ness­green­scafe). Daily, 8am-10pm. Wong Ah Wah I sin­cerely love Wong Ah Wah! I don’t come here of­ten – it’s not the cheap­est place to eat – but when­ever I have some­one vis­it­ing Malaysia for the first time, this is the place I’ll bring them; not for their sake, but for mine! WHAT TO OR­DER Yes, the chicken wings are good, but the salted egg so­tong is gold, so is the kangkung and co­conuts! Yes, I love co­conuts with ev­ery bit of my heart. 9 Jalan Alor, KL (03 2144 2463). Daily, 5.30pm-4am. Restoran Siu Siu There’s noth­ing fancy about this place in Ta­man Se­puteh – just a great place where fam­i­lies can share a meal. I’ll al­ways re­mem­ber this place; it’s where I took my mum out the first time I could af­ford to be­lanja her af­ter do­ing a cou­ple of per­for­mances. WHAT TO OR­DER Ev­ery­thing is good here – but this is my place for salted egg and chilli crab. And the char siew is to die for – but you have to call in early be­cause it fin­ishes so fast. 11 Lorong Syed Pu­tra Kiri, Rob­son Heights, KL (016 370 8555). Tue-Sun, 11am-10pm. Ara Viet­namese Noo­dles I usu­ally don’t share this spot with ev­ery­one – my fear is that this place will be­come over­rated when it gets too pop­u­lar. I was crav­ing Viet­namese food af­ter a gym ses­sion and was in­tro­duced to this place by a gym buddy. It’s be­come my go-to place for pho ever since. WHAT TO OR­DER This shop has one of the best pho, and Viet­namese food in general. Even the chilli they serve on the side is yummy, and the soup tastes homely and freshly made – there’s noth­ing pre-cooked about this place.

Jalan SS22/11 Da­mansara Jaya, PJ (016 222 2480/ fb.com/ar­aviet­name­senoo­dles). Tue-Sun, 10am-3pm; 5.309pm.
