Was recommended by a friend to this Lucky King Bun in a quiet town of Lukut, Port Dickson. Lucky King Bun is situated at one corner of the shop house, popular for its Pork Ribs & Chicken Curry Bun. If you have been to Seremban, this speciality is also famous there.

The shop is easily identified by the chicken mascot in front of the shop and with a simple glass cabinet displaying big buns. These buns were attractive in its shiny golden brown thin crust.

 Bun is being cut into flower like "petals" using their signature cutting method, revealing the packet of curry in between. Diners can choose to have chicken or pork ribs curry. However, if you want to have both of it, they do offer such combination too.

Buns are freshly make and baked daily. Best consumption period is within 4 hours. The bread is pillow soft and fluffy. It has a sweet taste that you can actually eat it on its own. However who will resist such delicious tasty thick curry that lays in front. Enjoy the meal to the fullest by dipping the bread into the aromatic curry that give u a bursting flavour.

Portion is quite big and best to share with at least 3 pax or more.

Curry Bun - RM 34.00

Looking at most tables, its hard just to order curry bun alone. Each of the table do order some sides. For us we had some greens to go with. Crunchy and not too oily.

Vegetables - RM 13.00

Vegetables - RM 13.00

 
 We had ordered other other side dishes like their soup lala. Lala were freshly cooked and soaked up in tasty broth. Naturally sweet from the seafood and taste were perked up by the use of ginger and green chilli padi, adding on a little spiciness in between.

Soup Lala - RM 23.00

The popularity of Lucky King Bun is evident and the coffeeshop is fully packed as soon as we dined in. For those who are taking away the buns, it is best to follow their instructions to keep the buns in a cool and dry place, avoiding direct sunlight.

Service was ordinary but they were quick to serve.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/12/nancys-kitchen.html

Nancy's Kitchen is one of the popular places to go for authentic Peranakan Food in Melaka. Looking at its crowd, walk-in customers need to have some patience in the queue.Today's Nancy's recipe has been passed down from generations and this is the 3rd generation. With the precision towards quality of each dish being served and practices strict cooking skill, it is no wonder that the authentic Peranakan dishes bring new and as well as returned customers.

Looking at the lunch crowd on the lower level, we waited for quite a while before getting our seats.

 Interior was homely and air conditioned. The reason why we visited Nancy's Kitchen is because of its popularity and that it is non-halal.

 Being Non-Halal, we get to choose more variety to certain dishes like with pork than chicken.

With the lunch's crowd, we only managed to get seats on the upper level. The kitchen transfer all cooked food using a elevator from the ground level to the upper level.

Steamed Spring Roll aka Popiah is served with turnips , cucumber, fresh bean, coriander leave, eggs, garlic and many other vegetables. It is one of the popular starter before meal and is a must try.

Spring Roll (Popiah) - RM 4.00 / Pcs

Spring Roll (Popiah) - RM 4.00 / Pcs

 
 Kueh Pie Tee came in crispy hat cone form and filled with vegetable. The fillings are similar to what we have in the spring roll but in a different serving.

Top Hat (Pai Tee) - RM 6.00 per set (5 pcs)

Having their last appetizer on the menu, they have this pork fried with bean curd skin on the menu which we often called it Ngoh Hiong. The pork is wrapped with bean curd skin and deep fried to obtain its crispiness on the outside with sweet tasty juicy pork on the inside.

Pork Fried with Bean Curd Skin (Ngoh Hiang) - RM 6.00 (Small) / RM 9.00 (Medium) / RM 12.00 (Large)

Pork Fried with Bean Curd Skin (Ngoh Hiang) - RM 6.00 (Small) / RM 9.00 (Medium) / RM 12.00 (Large)

 
Chap Chai is anohter classic Peranakan dish that we will often order. Its a combination of black fungus, lily bubs, cabbage, glass noodles, bean curd sheet and cook with preserved fermented soya bean. It is a stew mix vegetables filled with natural sweetness of the vegetable simply irresistible for young and old. However we find that the style of Chap Chai was too dry for us and was not soaked with gravy.

 Ayam / Bak Buah Keluak is a truly Peranakan classic dish. The black nut (Buah Keluak) is sold at additional cost of RM 2.00 each. Buah Keluak is originally from Indonesia and taste like truffle. Nut is cut open allowing the dish to have a sweet spicy and sourish taste.

Chicken / Pork Rib with Black Nut - RM 15.00 (S) , 1 Nut RM2.00

Ladies fingers can be served 2 ways, either boiled of fried with chilli. We had chosen the steamed version and it was served with lemony chilli paste.

Boiled / Fried Ladies Fingers (Bendi Celur) - RM 8.00 (Small) / RM 10.00 (Medium) / RM 12.00 (Large)

This is scrumptious! Duck soup was cooked on slow heat with salted vegetable and white wine, giving the taste of sourish to the dish. The dish has been passed down for 3 generations.

Duck with Salted Vegetable Soup (Sup Itik Tim) - RM 15.00 (Small) / RM 18.00 (Medium) / RM 22.00 (Large)

Duck with Salted Vegetable Soup (Sup Itik Tim) - RM 15.00 (Small) / RM 18.00 (Medium) / RM 22.00 (Large)

 
Last but not least, we had the classic dessert, Cendol for a sweet ending touch to the meal. Savour with Gula Melaka, coconut, green bean and coconut jelly.

Cendol - RM 4.50

Overall, Nancy's Kitchen has a home style Peranakan Food with reasonable pricing. To be honest, I am impressed by most of their dishes and will recommend to anyone who goes to Melaka and looking for Nyonya Dishes.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2017/12/sunroast.html

As we are on our road trip towards Port Dickson, we stopped by over at Yong Peng Sunroast to fix our stomach. Sunroast has one of the famous roasted delights and has handful of popular reviews. Sunroast looks like a family-run business with their children helping out.

Interior Sunroast While waiting for our order, we ordered Passion Fruit Drink and Honey Lemon drink.

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

Passion Fruit Drink - RM 3.50 & Honey Lemon - RM 3.50

 
 Sunroast is specialized in roasted delicacies adopting the use of charcoal method. I do not really fancy roasted pork meat but it was perfectly done without too much fatty meat. The layer of meat and fat were distinct. As for the Char Siew, it was an addiction to me, I cant resist having more pieces of it. It was lean and chewy.

Meat for 3 Pax (Char Siew & Roasted Meat)

Roasted Duck meat was delicious and supported by braised peanuts in its bottom. Glistering skin was crispy and meat was packed full of juiciness. I love the fact that the roasted duck meat was not overly salty and greasy.

One of their specialties will be Hakka 4 kinds of Yong Tou Foo. Freshly made and tasty to go with noodles and rice.

 
Hakka Yong Tau Foo - RM 5.00 Their noodles had caught my surprise. It was springy and fragrant in its black sauce. Thickness of noodle was broader than our "Mee Kia".

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

Noodle (Small) - RM 2.00

 
There are two types of rice, the plain one and the one with fragrant. We ordered both to pair with the roasted meat. Rice was on the soft side though.

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

Rice - RM 1.20 (Big)

 
Parking is make easy on the grass patch and stones gravel. Overall, if you are passing by Yong Peng, I find that its a worthy stop over for Roasted food.

Todak is one of the many seafood restaurants that most Singaporeans will visit in JB.We were there on a Sunday night and it was no surprise that the place is fully packed with people and we have to stand there and wait for quite sometime before getting a table even though we were not in big groups. As the crowd was kind of beyond control, it will be best that customers secure seating on their own. However, one thing that you have to be very sure is that, waiting time for food is still within the acceptable limit.

As Todak is located just opposite Singapore divining by the sea, one good advantage is that some of us are actually able to received Singapore's Telecom reception.

Todak These golden fried buns were big and definite good to dip into the chilli sauce of the crab. They were not too greasy and the outer layer of it is crispy.

 
Buns - RM 10 Lala was pretty interesting as it was stirred fried and came in some curry, sweet chilli taste. It was fragrant and addictive, thus the plate was quickly done up shortly after it was served. Calms were fresh and chewy and the gravy is a perfect pairing to the bowl of white rices.

 
Lala (Small) - RM 12
Ingredients of Fu Rong Egg is generous and it was fried to crisp.

 
Fu Rong Egg (Small) - RM 6 Grouper was charged at RM 10 for per 100g. There are variable ways to have the fish to be served and we had decided to have it cooked in Teochew Style. Not to mention that the fish was truly fresh as we were given the choice to choose the desire fish out of the big container of live fishes. It was well prepared without any stinky seafood smell however, do not expect that the scale is 100% removed. The broth was light and refreshing, not overly salty as those preserved vegetables were placed sparingly. Other ingredients includes sour plum, slices mushrooms, chilli as well as tofu cubes. The presentation of the dish was also lifted up in colors by the greens.

 
Grouper - RM 70 Last but not least, we had the crustaceans. Rate is going at RM 7 per 100g. Likewise, the style that you want it to be done varies and we had the most mainstream way of serving which frying in chilli. Gravy was not too spicy and good to pair with the golden fried buns.

Let's work on our fingers and remember to borrow their heavy crab cracking tool if you need.

 
Crab - RM 56 We got the seating in the middle of the place and it was quite disturbing to us as there were a lot of movements on the planks resulting in vibrating during dining. If you have a choice, try to find a seat that is not that centralized. As for parking wise, there is no need to worry. Parking space is ample and there are even carpark ushers who will aid you in parking your car.

http://www.umakemehungry.com/2016/06/sangkaya-nuts-about-coconut.html

Heard about coconut ice cream? For those who have been to Thailand, having Ice Creams in a coconut bowl is perhaps nothing new to you. With such desserts getting popular nowadays, the cafe in Johor Bahru did not forget about this trendy dessert from its neighbouring country.

As soon as we entered into the Cafe, the friendly staff greeted us. There is a leading staircase up to the second level, unfortunately they are still working on the dining space upstairs and I guess the place will soon be packed with patrons both lower and upper levels.

Interior was industrial theme and spacious with ample of seating. There is a corner with bar table that was classified as reserved.

Coconut has quite a number of benefits, do you know them all?

With 2 scoops of original Coconut flavour ice cream and 1 scoop of Thai Milk Tea Ice Cream served in the coconut reminds me of the time when we visited Bangkok's Chatuchak. Toppings over here are generous in the sense that you are allow to add your on toppings at the side of the counter. We added peanuts and crunch in this case. Making a complete set with additional RM 1.00, we were offered a cup of coconut water.
Love it!

Love it!

 
 
Spending per head: Approximately RM14.90(下午茶)
