Pak Man Resipi @ 88 Marketplace, KK

Pak Man Resipi Restaurant serves a variety of Malaysian Cuisine from around the country. The menu clearly listed out the "finalist" from each States, for example the Ayam Percik from Terengganu, Sup Kambing Berempah from Selangor, Udang Tumis Petai (Pahang), Opor Ayam (Kedah) and Nangka Rempah Beras which represent Sabahan's food. Their expertise's in Malaysian Cuisine but if you are up to something else, they do offer Western Food and many types of nasi goreng.

Kaylan Sos Tiram (RM6.50)
We ordered set lunch for 6 person (RM105), which consist of 6 dishes, rice and fruits. We can choose from 26 types of the available dishes, however most of them are meat. 

Udang Tumis Petai (Penang)
I liked this!

Ikan Bawal Masak Kuah Lada (Melaka)

Nangka Rempah Beras (Sabah)
Very unique way of cooking can't find in other part of Malaysia I believe...

Rendang Sotong (Negeri Sembilan)
This is so weird, I thought "rendang" suppose cook dry, instead of Tomyum Soup looking?

Ayam Percik (Terengganu)
I am quite sure Ayam Percik don't looks like this, but the taste was so good!!!

Kedai Kopi Janggut @ Hilltop

Craving for spicy food in the morning? A big fans of Tom Yum? Then definitely you cannot miss this Tom Yum Noodle at Kedai Kopi Janggut, Hilltop KK. Rated by my colleague as the "Best Tom Yum in Town", I went to try the noodle with the hope that it won't disappoint me. The outcome? Let the picture tell you!

Very thick tom yum soup with strong aroma, price vary depends on the type of seafood you choose, I ordered mee/meehun mixed Tom Yum with prawn, fried fish slice and fish cake, around RM10 per bowl.

"Serve No Pork" As you can see in many restaurant in Sabah

Special chilli sauce made from 'cili padi', this added some "kick" to my Tom Yum! *Liked*

Fried Prawn Wan Tan with Mayonnaise, a good snack while waiting for the famous Tom Yum.

Mee Sup Pipin @ Penampang

Anyone can tell me what does "pipin" means?

Every city has its hidden gems, it is up to the people to discover. I enjoy trying new food although "another me"  always stopped me by telling: "What if the restaurant is not up to the standard?" "It might spoilt the dinner!" et cetera et cetera  Well, I promise my curiosity win the timid me to discover new and delicious food so expect more to come from FoodiotKK :-)

One weekend, I drive towards the direction to Tambunan from Donggongon town, my target is Mee Sup Pipin located merely 4KM from the Klinik Kesihatan Penampang. I got no idea what is this or what does "pipin" means, the only information I know is, this is STRICTLY NON HALAL they serve pork only! After your meter hit 3KM mark, carefully look at the right until you see the "Mee Sup Pipin" signboard. If you got a good eyesight you might be able to see the road sign "Jalan Tomposik" hiding behind the lamp post.

Careful look for this sign board along the road to Tambunan. It suppose on your 3 or 4 KM mark from the Klinik or Shell Station.

Quite difficult to see this road sign unless you really got good eyesight  = )

The restaurant is actually in the kampung area. Drive your car straight in, there are some parking space there.

There are 2 restaurants here, this is called Mee Sup Pipin, another one is Mee Sup Pipin 1... Perhaps they are the same?

You can find pork noodle and soup here.

Tafu stuffed with minced pork, must try!!!

Sup tulang - the taste is similar to the noodle's soup. Can skip it next time. (RM2)

Meehon Sup Pipin - with the pork slice, Char Sao, and Tawau spring roll. They soup is very salty because one of the  ingredient of the soup is the preserved cabbage, or "Dong Choy 冬菜" in Cantonese. Very salty, yet very popular! (RM4)

Kon Lo Mee Pipin (RM4) - the dried version
You can order all Zhu Zap (pork offal) but I don't really know how to appreciate it, so, meat and Char Sao is good enough for me. Nice!

We want to try the Bakas (wild boar meat) but the shy waitress told us that all men are too busy to go hunting during the Kaamatan weekend. Hope to try it during my next visit :)

Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap @ Hilltop

I wonder anyone ever think of the best/signature food in your town of living but if you ask me to choose the best type of noodle can find in KL, I would definitely say it is Konlo (Dried) Wan Tan Mee. For KK, I however cannot decide immediately but it should be the choice between a Fish Noodle, a Shang Yuk Mian (Pork Noodle) and Ngiu Chap Meehun!

So, what is Ngiu Chap?

Beef Noodle, or Ngiu Chap consist of meehun, meat ball, meat and turnip. Beef offal is available here. Try this from the Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap at Hilltop, KK (RM7.00)

Ngiu Chap is the Chinese Hakka pronunciation for Beef Noodle, something similar to Bakso but a typical bowl of Ngiu Chap comes with the “spare parts” or the beef offal, meat and meat ball. For those who are not a fancy of “spare parts” can always ask for meat and meat ball only with the thick beef broth. Kah Hiong Ngiu Chap (家乡牛什) at Hilltop’s Kolam Centre here definitely is the most famous among others, if not the best.

The restaurant is located at Kolam Centre, Hilltop. Metered parking is available but limited especially during lunch hour.

Also available here: Ngiu Chap Konlo Mee (RM7.50). The noodle served with some minced beef and a bowl of soup of meat ball or meat.

Cannot miss the homemade chili sauce, very hot! You can even buy the chili sauce in bottle.

Vietnamese Coffee @ Origin Cafe, Karamunsing Capital ***CLOSED***

How many types of coffee brewing techniques do you know? The first image came out on my mind was an old uncle making "kopi-O-kaw" using a cloth as the coffee filter? Or expensive, pressure driven Espresso Machine? How about the elegant Syphon? Coffee Dripper? Perhaps, ice drip coffee? And not to forget, instant coffee...

I managed to sampled Vietnamese coffee at Origin Cafe, KK here. Its ideally located at the happening Karamunsing Capital, gives alternative to diners who don't wish to go to the regular (pronounce: "bo-ring") kopitiam franchise.


Its very easy to prepare Vietnamese coffee. Basically it comprises of 3 parts: filter, coffee press, and the lid. First, put the filter on top of a cup that can be fitted on. Add a spoonful of grounded coffee to the filter, screw the coffee press to the filter and add hot water. Put the lid on and enjoy seeing the dripping process which normally takes about 5-10 minutes. The good thing about Vietnamese coffee? You don't have to know rocket science to make a cup of coffee. No need to attend barista course, no need to dig out your PMR text book for re-learn how to use "Penunu-Bunsen"... Compare to paper filter, the Vietnamese coffee filter is made of stainless steel that you can wash it after use.
