This place can be pretty crowded during lunch hours with their lunch deals that cost as low as RM6.90. The cosy environment and attentive staff makes it a good place to enjoy a meal with your buddies.

Uncle Jang serves up tasty Korean food. One of their specialties is their Dak-galbi dish, a mixture of meat, potatoes and cabbage in spicy Korean sauce. You can customise your order by choosing between ramen, cheese, rice, chicken, potatoes, cabbage and rice cake OR you could just have all of those mixed together in a big stove. Trust us, although it sounds weird to add so many things in, it’s still really good. There’s free refills for water and side dishes. The funny thing is, you have an apron to wear while enjoying your meal but the staff is the one cooking for you. If you’re not a fan of spicy food, they have non-spicy dishes as well.

This place actually looks like a ‘kampung’, a traditional wooden house some Malaysians stay in that is becoming more rare these days. Dining here feels almost like having home cooked food. With the cosy environment, lush greenery surrounding the ‘house’ and food made from nothing but fresh ingredients picked from their own vegetable garden, Elda’s Farmhouse will definitely make you feel at home (or at least have an experience dining at a Malaysian home). The authentic Malay dishes are all cooked by the owner so you can imagine how much ‘love’ she puts in.

If you’re studying at the German-Malaysian Institute, this place may be slightly far for you and nearer for those studying at IUKL. But trust us, it’s worth the trip. Kajang is famous for their satay, grilled skewed meat dipped in spicy peanut sauce. Foodies from other states flock to Kajang just to try this special dish which is paired with glutinous rice and cucumbers to cool down the heat. Sate Rono is rated 8 out of 10 and it’s no surprise that it’s one of the best satay stalls in Kajang so you don’t have to travel too far from where you study.

Okay, this place is Da-Bomb! Nasi Lemak has always been a staple in Malaysia for every race and religion. So if you intend to study here, the Nasi Lemak at Village Park is a must-try. From the fluffy coconut scented rice, crispy-on-the-outside and juicy-on-the-inside fried chicken to the sweet and spicy sambal, there’ll be a lot going on in your taste buds, but in a good way. It also comes with a side of hard-boiled egg, thinly fried anchovies and cucumbers so you get a healthy, balanced meal. This restaurant is dubbed as one of the best Nasi Lemak stalls around. Village Park was voted as the Best Ayam Goreng (best fried chicken) in Time Out KL Food Awards 2014 and Blogger’s Choice in 2011.

If you fancy food trucks, you’ll love this. If you’re a meat lover, you’d fall head over heels for this. Just like it’s name, they sell good quality, juicy steaks and burgers. Its’ one-of-a-kind succulent and tender meat, whether steaks or ducks, are cooked to perfection in whatever doneness you prefer while enjoying it under a tree. Yes, the food truck is right under a tree. Once you try it, we’re sure you’ll come back for more. If you’re studying at International University of Malaya-Wales (IUMW), then basking in steaks and burgers will not take too much effort.
P/S: Big eaters may want to order the whole duck breast because it comes with unlimited tortillas.
