MALAYSIAN STREET FOOD

Malaysia is mostly known for its street food (meals cooked on the street to either eat on the spot or takeaway). The flavours reflect the country’s multicultural heritage with a feast of Chinese, Indian, Malay and many other types of cuisine. While I am given the Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom for a month to try out, I took the opportunity to capture some of the street food that I’ve eaten throughout places like Kuala Lumpur, Malacca, Penang, and so on. This post isn’t much about words but rather letting pictures taken by #mys4zoom speak by itself.

Enjoy the delicious pictures, and sorry if you’re reading this at midnight :p

There are plenty more pictures, but I think I’ll take up a lot of your internet bandwidth. I’ve personally submitted them all to the #mys4zoom campaign page on Facebook to be part of Joe Flizzow’s new music video, Havoc. You should check it out too and submit your pictures to the page, for more info:

THE JAPANESE RESTAURANT

Sunway Putra Hotel (formerly known as The Legend Hotel) is graded for its value for service, hence does not come cheap but certainly worth the price paid. The Japanese Restaurant (formerly known as Gen Japanese Restaurant) is certainly the place to be if you’re looking for quality Japanese food with emphasis on taste, presentation, freshness and style.

The Japanese Restaurant

The Japanese Restaurant is a great location; being situated on the 10th floor of Sunway Putra Hotel, it provides a stunning view of Kuala Lumpur’s skyline in its avant-garde restaurant setting. Sushi and sashimi were plated beautifully, the hot dishes were pretty much fusion-nisque as I don’t think they’re all Japanese cuisine, Teppanyaki section was good as you get to pick out the ingredients you want and let the chef do the ‘dirty’ work for you, and they have pretty good selection of fruits, cakes and ice-cream at the dessert section. I didn’t try the cold section though, with the cold soba, udon n other cold dishes, not really a fan of it.

Just give you a taster of what to expect, here is a shortened list on what is offered:

Sashimis
Freshly cut salmon, maguro (tuna), hamachi (yellowtail), cuttlefish, butterfish, oysters, tiger prawns and half shell scallops

12 HOUR MARATHON BUFFET @ SUNWAY PYRAMID TOWER

Have you ever tried participating in a marathon? If yes, good for you! But no, I ain’t talking about the usual running marathon; how about a 12-hour food buffet marathon? ;)

Just last weekend, Atrium Cafe of Pyramid Tower Hotel had invited some bloggers to participate in a day out within Sunway in conjunction with their 12-hour marathon buffet promotion. Now let me explain more about the marathon buffet promotion before I get on with whatever happened that day.

So if you’re thinking 12-hour buffet is insane and no one would spend the whole 12-hour in the buffet place, well Sunway Pyramid Tower Hotel‘s Atrium Cafe will explain to you how. Their 12-hour marathon buffet takes place from 11am – 11pm every Sunday and public holidays. No wait, that’s not all. Diners are allowed to go in and out of the place as many times as they wish! Means you may come for breakfast buffet, go for shopping at Sunway Pyramid, come back for lunch, splash around Sunway Lagoon, go have a shower and take a nap at Sunway Hotel, wake up and get ready for dinner, watch a movie and then come back for supper before 11pm! ALL THAT FOR RM68++ ONLY!! Children below the age of 12 are entitled to 50% discount! Now you know where to spend your weekend for a getaway.

So yeah, that’s basically the whole idea of this 12-hour marathon buffet. I was one of the lucky bloggers to experience it and damnnnn, I was pretty satisfied with the food variety offered @ Atrium Cafe. Bang for bucks!

The food was pretty good, love the cakes and dessert! Oh did I mention that I also tried out for the wan tan eating challenge? We were served with 200 wantans for those participating in the challenge that day (7 bloggers)! Well, obviously we didn’t finish all 200 lah lol.

Watch the video below:

Nahhh, I didn’t win the challenge. But at least I managed to gobble up 20 prawn wantan in 3 minutes! Not the fastest, i know :(

So after our breakfast+lunch, we had a mini pampering massage session for all the bloggers and some of us went on a ‘retail therapy’ shopping walk with the Sunway Pyramid vouchers given to us on that day. We came back for another round of makan later on and headed straight to Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park for Go-Kart session!

Sunway Bloggers

Go Kart

Those who have not tried out Go-Kart, you should go to Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park to try it out. Why? Because the kart cannot speed wan!! It’s a ‘joy-ride go kart’ instead of a ‘racing g0 kart’. If you’re a first-timer, then suitable for you la. For those looking for adrenaline rush, please look elsewhere… try the bungy jump instead or other exciting stuff offered at the Sunway Lagoon Extreme Park.

After our day out at Sunway Lagoon, we went back to Atrium Cafe and had our dinner there as well. Some of us did not stay until supper (like me) so we kinda missed out on some new dishes offered at night. Oh forgot to mention, they replenish the dishes for lunch and dinner. Thus, don’t worry if you think that you’re gonna be eating the same thing for breakfast, brunch, lunch, hi-tea, dinner, supper. :)

Buffet Marathon

Hereby, I’ll mention again…

Marathon buffet starts from 11am – 11pm
Every Sunday / Public Holidays
RM68++ for adults / 50% discount for children aged 12 and below
