1. Warung Kita

Best For: Nasi Manggeh & Coconut Shake

Warung Kita can get crowded in the morning because of its ever popular Nasi Manggeh (RM5.80). Originated from the state of Kelantan, the name comes from a localised way of saying “memanggil” which means calling.

Wrapped in a conical wrapper and banana leaf, the steamed rice is served with deep-fried chicken and mildly sweet curry. The chicken itself is seasoned with turmeric, ginger and other spices, giving it an intense flavour. The sambal that goes with it is super spicy.

Luckily for us, they also have Coconut Shake (RM3.50), made from a refreshing blend of coconut juice and ice cream. A good way to get the heat off our tongues!

Warung Kita
Address: 95, Jalan Kusta, Kampung Melayu Batu 13, 47000 Sungai Buloh, Selangor
Opening Times: 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM daily

2. Daughters Kitchen

Best For: Milo Ais Kepal & ABC Pacak

Daughters Kitchen is opened by four sisters who self-taught themselves to cook, and comes from a family who loves cooking. While they do have a selection of Malay cuisine, we were more intrigued by their icy desserts.

Their ABC Pacak (RM4.90) adds a splash of colour to your day with its rainbow coloured syrup combo. It looks too pretty to eat at first! Sweet and filled with syrupy goodness, the icy concoction hides traditional ice kacang ingredients in it, such as red bean, cincau, cream corn and peanuts.

Milo maniacs would prefer their Milo Ais Kepal (RM2.90), an icy ball drizzled with thickened malty mixture and a sprinkling of nuts.

3. Restaurant Al Faize

Best For: Nasi Minyak

Restoran Al Faize has been around for about 7 years, and serves mamak food. One of their specialties is the Nasi Minyak, paired with hard-boiled egg, vegetables and your choice of curry.

The chicken version comes up to about RM9.50 per set while the mutton curry is around RM12 per set. We had it with mutton curry, which added an intense aroma to the hearty rice dish.

4. Nasi Ayam Sungai Buloh

Best For: Chicken Rice

When you can’t go to Ipoh, Ipoh can come to you in the form of this chicken rice shop. Nasi Ayam Sungai Buloh is a veteren in the district of 28 years. The owners are the second generation in the family to run the business.

Made fresh every day, you can tell that their hor fun noodles, bean sprouts and meat balls are all from Ipoh. Even the bean sprouts has that juicy taste you can only find in Perak’s capital city! Their chicken is smooth and tender, with their self-made chilli to pack a little spice in each bite.

While the price depends on what you order, having the whole set for 1 person goes up to RM11.

Right next door is Restoran Kong Mah, where you are greeted by whiffs of dim sums. Served fresh each day, they have a variety of steamed and fried dim sum (RM4.40 – RM6.60).

If you are in Sungai Buloh during the weekends, you’ll want to try their weekend specials. The Salted Egg Siew Mai tastes as amazing as it sounds, and is praised by visitors and locals alike. Other dishes you can have are the Yam Puff and Egg Tarts.

6. Chai Kee Noodle House

Best For: Pan Mee

Chai Kee Noodle House draws its crowds with its special pan mee recipe. The noodles are made fresh each day using 3 different flavours: dried shrimp, pumpkin and spinach, giving each a distinct colour.

Not sure which to pick? Mix all three to try all them at once! The noodles are paper thin and slippery, with a pleasant chewy texture. The broth is also clean-tasting, which makes it all the more satisfying.

7. 3B Drip & Dutch Cafe Gallery

Best For: Iced Bear Dutch Coffee

Coffee lovers would find themselves drawn to this Korea-inspired cafe, hidden in a commercial district at Sungai Buloh.

As the name suggests, they specialise in Dutch coffee and hand-drip coffee. We tried the Ice Bear Dutch Coffee, which comes with bear-shaped espresso ice chunk, milk, dutch coffee and syrup.

Aside from the fact that it is so adorable, the idea is that you can adjust it according to your own preference, be it strong and bitter, or sweet and milky.

8. Restoran Mei Kheng

Best For: Seafood Hot Pot Rice & Chicken Cuisine

Most people come to Restoran Mei Kheng for their signature Seafood Hot Pot Rice (RM68 for Small, RM128 for Large).

The tasty broth warms your belly and has a mild sweetness from the array of seafood, such as prawns, crabs and shellfishes. You’ll want more than one helping!

The restaurant also serves Chinese-style dishes. Among the signature dishes we tried, the Fried Pork Belly is really crispy and addictive while Japanese Grilled Squid is another crowd pleaser, with its smoky overtone. Their Barbecue Pork Ribs is also tender and layered with sticky caramelised sauce.

9. Restaurant Lee Hong Kee

Best For: Standing Chicken & Petai Fish

Curious as to what Standing Chicken can be? At Restaurant Lee Hong Kee, this unusual dish is exactly what it says it is. Upon order, the whole chicken is drizzled with oil for that crispy goodness. The Standing Chicken (RM48) came to our table on a metal stick, keeping it standing tall.

To get a bite, we were given gloves to pull the juicy meat off and dip them in the special chilli they have made on their own.

The restaurant also specialises in a number of Cantonese style dishes. Another house signature is the Petai Fried Fish, combining Chinese cooking style with local ingredients. The sauce is strong and spicy, pairing well with the fried fish.
