Kopitiam Otak Otak Formosa, Melaka

Seeking for a great place for a breakfast is never an easy task even when you are in Melaka. However, my uncle who lives in Melaka for 20 years seduced me by telling me that he is going to bring me to best roti canai in Melaka. As a food enthusiast me is not immune with such a temptation. So I took the bait and woke up early on the next day.

This is the place. He said only the local will know this place is good. Tourist will not know.
My uncle said previously they were just a small hawker stall. Now they have a shop!

Overall: 3/5 - I love the butter taste in a Roti Canai. Please remember to tell the waiter/waitress not to put any sugar on it. It will spoil the taste.

Roti Pisang with Cheese @RM2.40

Creativity: 4/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 3/5
Overall: 3/5 - Very interesting combination to have cheese in the Roti Canai. It is already very delicious either with or without cheese in a Roti Pisang.


Overall, this restaurant's roti canai is quite good and soft. However, it is not that very delicious until I will revisit them again. One thing not very good about this restaurant is they only provide Dal Curry. Their coffee are so bad which almost applies to all coffee shop in Melaka. Parking is ample just need some leg work only.


Total Damage: RM21.00 (7 pax)

Tamarind Springs @ Jalan TAR, Ampang

Outlook: 3/5
Creativity: 5/5
Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 3/5 - It is also known as their signature Symphony of Starters, which takes you across the breadth of Indochinese cuisine with Vietnamese shrimp crystal rolls, lemongrass prawns, Cambodian-style deep-fried shrimp cakes and minced chicken on cinnamon sticks. All served with a variety of piquant sauces. The plate is just nice for 2 pax but the price is too expensive for that small portion.

This is a chicken tomyam clear soup with coconut meat in it. Very delicious and creative way to make it. The coconut meat is the highlight of the entire soup. It just gave the soup an extra coconut fragrance in it and of course, they are edible. Do not worry, the soup is not too spicy.

Magnum Cafe @IOI City Mall, Putrajaya

Taste: 4/5
Price: 2/5
Overall: 4/5 - It contains of cashew meringue, Mascarpone cream, honey balsamic cream served with white chocolate dipped vanilla Magnum topped with freeze dried raspberries and fresh strawberries. My suggestion is to mix them all together including the ice cream itself otherwise by eating the ice cream alone will be too sweet. Once you mixed them all together, the magic comes. The sensational taste of creamy, crunchy, a little sourish kick and sweetness combining all together to create a wonderful ice cream dessert. Definitely is a must order dessert when you are there.
