Nasi Kerabu, Nasi Kunyit & Durian Cendol Among Delights That Draw Customers
The best recipes are sometimes not found in a cookbook or a video but passed down from one generation to another. For Joyce Chong, one of the best-sellers at her cafe, KakatooGo is a recipe passed down by her great grandmother to her.
Positioning itself incongruously amid a slew of casual fast-food joints, cafes and predominantly Western-inspired eateries is KakatooGo, a welcome local addition to Chinatown locatedalong Jalan Sultan and adjacent to the famous Petaling Street in Kuala Lumpur.
KakatooGo, a halal-certified F&B outlet is one of the latest cafes that serve authentic Nyonya Kampung cuisine strategically located right in the heart of the city. The cafe pays homage to the family's Peranakan roots with a genuine treasure trove of heirloom recipes.
This compact cafe is a great pit-stop for your traditional Malaysian and Nyonya food. KakatooGo offers an extensive menu of noodles, rice, finger bites, Nyonya kuih and beverages at affordable prices.
You can enjoy a range of mouth-watering dishes at this casual cafe, from flavourful Kampung Nasi Kerabu to colourful desserts. There's plenty to salivate over at KakatooGo, so I would heartily recommend that you skip a meal or two to accommodate as much food as possible when you are here.
Oh yes, bring a friend or two, so you guys can order more food to go on sharing basis. This is also a good place to play tourist - bring your Mat Salleh's friends to savour some spicy Curry Kapitan Chicken or Kampung Nasi Kerabu while delighting their tastebuds with the Durian cendol!
To begin with, start with something light like homemade Nyonya Acar, Kerabu Mango, Nyonya Fruits Rojak and Sotong with Kangkong.
Nyonya Acar RM 6.90
If you like something sweet, spicy and sour, then this light and refreshing Nyonya Acar is just the perfect pick-me-up dish to try in KakatooGo.
Made from a plethora of vegetables such as cabbage, long beans, chilli, cucumber and carrots among others, this dish requires lots of hard work and the secret lies with a good homemade chilli paste. I have high expectation every time when tasting any vegetable acar.
This is because my late aunt, Fei Yee (Fat Aunty) used to make awesome acar and she sells them at the morning market in Happy Garden. I find theirs a bit on the dry side as I like mine spicier with more sauce soaking in the ingredients. Anyhow, do give this a try if you have not tasted acar before!
If you're after something light and energising, try the Kerabu Mango at RM 6.90 for a small portion.
An invigorating salad filled with young mango, onions, chillies, toasted sesame seeds and roasted peanuts that bursting with sour-spicy flavours upon the first bite. Loved it!
Nyonya Fruits Rojak
RM 13.90 (With Sotong)
Nyonya Fruits Rojak is made up of fruits like pineapple, turnip, cucumber, raw mango and crunchy fried keropok tossed in a house-made shrimp paste, toasted sesame seeds and roasted peanuts.
The thick black sauce has a unique flavour and it tastes quite different from the regular ones we tried from the regular fruit rojak at pasar malam or street hawkers.
Sotong with Kangkong
Sotong with Kangkong is a popular street food you can find in town. The dish is simple and easy to make with blanched brown cuttlefish and kangkung but the secret lies in the sauce.
It hits all the right spot with its housemade sauce that goes well with the crunchy kangkung and firm brown sotong.
If you're looking for some crispy bites, do try out the Cucur Udang or the Pai Tee. Both are great appetizers to start your meal before the mains at KakatooGo.
RM3.50/ per piece
RM 6.90/ 4 pcs
Kampung Nasi Kerabu
A must-have item at KakatooGo is their Kampung Nasi Kerabu. This fragrant and full of texture delicious dish is a visually appealing rice dish served with a variety of aromatic herbs, fresh vegetables, condiments and choice of protein.
Perhaps the most striking feature of this dish is the blue rice, naturally coloured with butterfly pea flower or 'Bunga Telang' in Malay.
Most Striking Feature ~ Blue rice
Butterfly pea flower or 'Bunga Telang' Rice
At KakatooGo, their Nyonya Nasi Kerabu comes with blue rice, deep-fried spiced chicken drum stick, herbs salad, salted egg, acar, grated coconut (serunding kelapa) and fish crackers, topped with thick sweet and spicy coconut sauce.
Quite an elaborate dish, rich in taste with wonderful coconut flavour and fresh herbs. The key to a great nasi kerabu is the sum of all things, you need to fold in everything, break the keropok and mix it all up, sauce, salad and all. Enjoy ya!
Nasi Kunyit With Curry Kapitan Chicken
Another noteworthy dish to try and also my hubby's personal favourite is their Nasi Kunyit With Curry Kapitan Chicken.
Featuring chunky pieces of chicken with soft potatoes swimming in a rich gravy laced with coconut milk served with nasi kunyit.
The rich, creamy curry chicken will have you instantly addicted and you just can't stop plunging into this creamy delight over and over again to eat with your turmeric glutinous rice.
Moving on to the noodles dishes, there are signature Nyonya Curry Noodles, Asam Laksa and Curry Chee Cheong Fun.
Nyonya Curry Noodles
The Nyonya Curry Noodles comes topped with fish balls, fish paste Fu chok, long beans and bean sprouts.
The laksa broth is good - creamy and rich infused with fresh herbs and spices, mint leaves and plump yellow noodles that soak in all the goodness of the broth.
I enjoyed the special fishballs used as it was extra firm with a good texture to it along with the thick fish paste Fu chok which was a delight to eat!
Curry Chee Cheong Fun
The Curry Chee Cheong Fun is a hit too with us that day.
This is a simple and yet delicious rice noodles serves with a wonderfully delicious concoction of housemade curry sauce with sweet sauce enhanced with the rich-tasting shrimp paste sauce (Har Ko sauce).
A comfort food quality that you ought to try when dining there for the first time. The smooth rice noodles mixed together with the sauces proves to be an incredible marriage of flavours and textures with the topping of fragrant fried shallot and sesame seeds!
Recommended Beverages To Try
Signature Durian Cendol
Make sure to leave room for desserts. Durian lovers must try the Signature Durian Cendol. This is a dreamy dessert made-in-heaven for all durian and cendol lovers.
DENTAL CHECK UP ~ INTERNATIONAL MEDICAL UNIVERSITY
IMU ORAL HEALTH CENTRE BUKIT JALIL
What Is Good Oral Hygiene? Brushing our teeth twice a day using a soft toothbrush with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and mouth rinse, this is daily preventive care for healthy teeth and gums. Good oral health is important to your overall well-being.
A regular dental check-up is also equally important because they help keep your teeth and gums healthy. One should have a regular dental visit at least every 6 months or once a year.Prevention is better than cure, so when was the last time you went to a dentist for a scaling and dental check?
IMU ORAL HEALTH CENTRE
No 126 Jalan Jalil Perkasa 19
57000 Kuala Lumpur Tel: 03 - 2731 7661 / 8656 7228
Recently Auntie Lilly and hubby went for our long overdue oral dental check-up at IMU Oral Health Centre at International Medical University located Bukit Jalil in Kuala Lumpur. This centre offers dental services by dentists and their undergraduate dental students as part of their clinical training prior to being a professional dentist.
My hubby was charged RM 15 only for a full medical check, including scaling and polishing while I paid RM 30 for scaling, polishing with root planing. They have two sessions in a day either at 9am or the 2pm slot. Be prepared to spend at least 2 hours or more and be patient with the dental students who are still learning the ropes to treating patients.
Weekdays Only ~ 2 Sessions A Day
03 - 8656 7228 or 2731 7617
From my personal experience, I find them quite slow but very delicate and precise when they are treating me while cleaning my teeth. The session usually starts with a Q&A session to record your overall health history and followed by a complete dental check - conditions of each of your tooth and gums too.
Don't worry that you are treated by students as they are fully supervised by their lecturers (also a dentist too). The student will identify your oral conditions and recommended the appropriate treatments to their supervising lecturer before proceeding the treatment. Dun worry ya, you are in good hands!
Scaling & Root Planing
In my fifties now, my teeth are ageing (with gaps in between my tooth) and I required root planing apart from the routine teeth scaling to remove the plaque and tartar. Root planing is deep cleaning done to prevent and treat gum disease like chronic periodontal disease. I google this up and it meant - getting your roots planed, cleaned, scraped, and disinfected! Check this video out about root planing:askthedentist.com/what-is-a-root-planing
Well, that's it... remember to go for your regular dental check for healthy teeth and gums! Auntie Lilly getting old and forgetful and has neglected my dental oral hygiene for the past one year.
Gotta get back in the track not to lose any tooth of mine, so I'm going to put a reminder in my calendar to go for a regular check once every 6 months now onwards!
IMU Oral Health Centre for Students Treatments is open on Weekdays only with 2 sessions a day in the morning & afternoon, call for an appointment at 03 - 8656 7228 or 2731 7617. 😍

TeaPresso: Revolutionary Tea Art Inspired By Espresso
Any Day Is A Good Day For A Good Cup Of Tea! Well, having said that, I believe you can't agree more with me. Any avid tea drinker knows that tea can be a great addition to any time of the day. You can enjoy a cup after you roll out of bed or maybe have an afternoon pick-me-up to make it through the rest of your workday.
Do you know that tea is one of the healthiest beverages around? Tea, a health-enhancing drink is regarded for thousands of years as a key to good health, happiness and wisdom. Research has shown some teas may help with cancer, heart disease and diabetes, encourage weight loss, lower cholesterol, and also bring about mental alertness. Tea has less caffeine and flavonoids, the compound in tea is good for the heart too.
There’s a tea for every occasion. And sometimes, the fun and rewarding ritual of brewing a fresh cup of loose leaf tea are just as important as the taste. Tea is also the most popular beverage in the world after water. Basically, there's no downside to tea.
Recently, I was totally delighted to be introduced to ARISSTO TEA ~ TeaPresso, an automatic personal brewer for avid tea-drinkers to savour the perfect tea and experience the fun of enjoying a variety of tea, together with 5,000 people, setting another precedent of a tea drinking culture at their launch in MINES International Exhibition & Convention Centre (MIECC).
Grand Musical Coffee Party & The Birth of ARISSTO Tea
ARISSTO Grand Musical Performance ~ This Is ARISSTO TEA
Dato' Michael Lim, Group President and Founder of NEP
Good tea is fragrant, crystal clear and without bitterness in taste. Do you know that the traditional way of boiling tea does not only require good quality tea and water but also a refine tea set? One needs to be able to control the precise temperature and brewing time.
The colour, taste and fragrance of tea will not be good if the brewing time is too short. The tea will be bitter if it is over-brewed. Therefore, many perceive that the art of brewing tea can be complex and difficult to achieve the 'just right' effect. Thus the new generation regards traditional tea culture an outdated trend.
WHAT IS ARISSTO TEAPRESSO?
ARISSTO is inspired by the high-pressure steam technology of Italy Espresso and develop TeaPresso - the revolutionary tea by merging it with the state of art Capsule technology. The new ARISSTO TeaPresso seals tea leaves into patented capsules that help preserve its freshness.
ARISSTO'S Grand Musical Coffee Party & The Birth Of ARISSTO Tea - YouTube
As Easy As 1-2-3 To Make A Cup Of Tea With ARISSTO Tea
Insert a tea capsule into the ARISSTO Capsule Machine and with one touch of the button, all 19 bars of pressurized steam will be injected into the tea capsule to release the essence of tea leaves within 30 seconds.
Under this precise timing, there would be no over-brewing which causes bitterness in the tea. With this amazing technology, you can now enjoy an exquisite cup of fragrant tea without any of the bitterness. Readily instant and is far better than brewing standard tea bags.
The tea brewing technology of TeaPresso has simplified the complex tea art with a far better result than the traditional way of brewing tea with boiling water. Every individual can be an outstanding tea master and to brew perfect tea. That's pretty cool, right?

D' MUNCH KITCHEN 豬多飽 Whetting Pork Lovers' Appetite With Home-Style Dishes
TASTE OF HOME ~ D' MUNCH KITCHEN 豬多飽
Attention All Pork Lovers! If you enjoyed pork dishes cooked in any style, then you are in for a treat with the pork-licious menu by D' MUNCH KITCHEN 豬多飽 at Old Klang Road in Kuala Lumpur. Good makan places around the Klang Valley are sometimes accidental discoveries for foodies like us.
With a pork-loving family in tow, Auntie Lilly decided to check out this newly opened month old eatery, d' Munch Kitchen located Petalz Residences, along the Old Klang Road for dinner that night.
With a strictly ALL-PORK MENU to choose from while offering an array of porky home-style recipes from mains, noodles, rice and soups dishes together with herbal teas to alcoholic beverages to whet your appetite.
Dinner at D'Munch Kitchen was absolutely amazing, just like a gastronomy journey for me back to the authentic taste of home. I was overwhelmed with the wonderful memories of my late mom, my mother-in-law and even my aunt's cooking when dining there. Dishes served here is cooked with passion and love, very home-style bringing back memories of all those comforts and hearty food that we grew up eating.
The decor of the restaurant is one of the simple and straight forward with no frills setup but what excites me is the way the dishes are cooked using pork meat in so many styles as you read this blog post. The noteworthy dishes to try has to be the PORK CURRY, VINEGAR PORK LEG, PEANUT PORK and MUI CHOY PORK SLICED. Reasonably priced from RM 8/dish onwards.
Shot Taken From The Mezzanine Floor
We tried several dishes to go with rice at one go, but I shall sum them up in the order of my top favourites based on personal preference and taste. Here goes:
d' Pork Curry
The Pork Curry was such a memorable dish and I had to say that this is one of the best-tasting pork curries I ever tasted. You see, there are not many restaurants that serve pork curry as mostly are inclined to serving the crowd favourite of chicken curry.
Using only fresh herbs and spices such as galangal, turmeric, lemongrass, ginger and shallots just to mention a few, the pork curry is stewed to perfection with the rich curry sauce penetrating fully into the tender pork.
We ordered seconds for this yummy dish alone as both of my hubby and son just cannot stop themselves from slurping or mopping up the delicious curry gravy with their multiple bowls of rice and mantao.
d' Vinegar Pork Leg
The Vinegar Pork Leg was my personal favourite, in fact. This hearty pork dish reminds me of my late aunt's cooking. It's a must-eat dish specially prepared for new mothers during their confinement and I remembered my aunt would get busy buying the sweet vinegar, sour vinegar and premium Bentong old ginger with the lean pork just for me.
Many eateries do serve this but most of them were not up to the mark, lacking in the richness in the black thick broth with the balance flavours of sourness and sweet within the dish. Some are too watery - could be stingy with not using the right kind of premium black vinegar.
Well, d' Munch Kitchen's pork vinegar dish hits all the right spots and I thoroughly enjoyed this dish to the last drop of the sauce. Serving portion for all the dishes is good for sharing for 2 to 3 persons.
d' Peanut Pork
Moving on next, another winner in its own right ~ Peanut Pork. Oink-oink, to all the pork lovers out there - come check out the pork cooked with peanuts. The combination of it all was nothing less than addictive with a fair portion of pork belly braised over long hours with the soft peanuts.
You'll enjoy the melt-in-the-mouth equal layering of fat and lean pork belly soaking in the flavourful sauce with the big peanuts. Again, this is a unique dish and not available in many restaurants and dishes like these are only cooked at home - family dishes.
d' Mui Choy Pork Sliced
Any Mui Choy Chee Yok lovers here? Wow, this is one of the dishes I love most eating it from my mom's kitchen and also one of the dishes I failed miserably to master it to the taste of my late mom's cooking.
Goodness Of Home At D' Munch Kitchen 豬多飽 - YouTube
Served Piping Hot In Claypot
Here's one of the nostalgic Hakka dish I craved and missed most. Simply memorable family favourites cooked by my late mom. This is a traditional dish you can find in most Hakka families dinner table.
Both sweet and salty preserved vegetable or also known as 'Mui Choy' is braised with pork slices and ginger till soft. Maybe an easy dish to prepare with simple ingredients but it's takes years of experience with love and passion to get the taste right!
d' Pork Innard Soup
If you are looking for a soup dish, then you might want to try their Pork Innard Soup. Featuring a sourish preserved vegetable soup base, the 'Ham choy' is cooked with a combination of mixtures of fork-tender pork belly with skin, pig intestines and chewy pig tongue.
d' Munch Braised
If the soup dish does not appeal to you, then get your fix of the pig 'spare parts' from this Braised Pork dish. Mixtures of pork belly with skin and pig intestines braised in dark thick sauce with boiled egg and tofu to soak up the flavours.
d' Munch Vege RM 8
d' Hong Kong Choy Sum RM 8
Apart from the pork dishes, you can also have some greens to go with the dishes. Choose the daily available vegetables of the day or better still, opt for the crunchy Hong Kong Choy Sum.
d' Braised Pork Rice
There are also some dishes perfect for the single diner or for those looking for a quick and simple but tasty pork meal to fill the tummy. Diners can check out this Braised Pork Rice for RM 8 only.
Simply a hearty yummy dish with warm white rice served topped generously with braised minced pork with lots of pork lard (Chee Yar Char), Hong Kong Choy Sum and sunny side up. Fan of fragrant sinfully delicious pork lard will love this!
d' Porky Noodle
Noodles lovers can try the Porky Noodle ~ Flavourful pork broth is served with your choice of noodles (Mee Hoon, Mee, Koay Teow or Mee Sua (add RM 1). The broth was made tastier and flavourful with the additional fresh pork slices, meatballs and internal organs of the pig, also not forgetting the crispy pork lards floating on the bowl!
Golden Mantao (6pcs) RM5
These soft and fluffy buns are great dishes to eat all the above-mentioned dishes. Summer Mantao (4pcs) RM 5 is the non-fried version of the buns while Golden Mantao is the deep-fried side dishes
Overall, d' Munch Kitchen proves itself a good to go eatery for its variety of home-style dishes to suit everyone varies taste buds. Prices are reasonable considering they used premium ingredients to all their pork dishes. Truly an authentic fare at affordable prices, tasty right down to the last bite for me and my family that night!
Herbal Tea Of The Day - RM 1.50 Per Bowl
Do drop by at d' Munch Kitchen 豬多飽 if you are around the area, I'm sure you will not be disappointed at this..

RMHC Malaysia organises gotong-royong event to welcome family members of pediatric patients
KUBANG KERIAN, 23 June 2019 -Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC Malaysia) and McDonald's Malaysia in collaboration with Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital (Hospital USM) held a gotong-royong event in conjunction with the opening of Ronald McDonald House in Hospital USM in Kubang Kerian, Kelantan to welcome the family of pediatric patients receiving treatment there as well as surrounding hospitals.

Azmir Jaafar, President of RMHC and Managing Director and Local Operating Partner of McDonald's Malaysia said, "The Ronald McDonald House was opened due to the necessity at HUSM which is a referral hospital receiving more than 20,000 patients annually.
