Song River Cafe 松花江餐室 @ Gurney Drive

I read a few blogs that feature this cafe and I passed by it many times on the way to Gurney Plaza. Finally, I manage to dine there. And all that I can remember was just the delicious roasted chicken.
Here's the location.

Bak Kut Teh with 油条 and rice RM11.00
A blog mentioned that people normally come for the Bak Kut Teh and the 煮炒. The 
煮炒 wasn't open that day. My friend commented the Bak Kut Teh tasted so-so. Even the one at Sungai Dua, which is just opposite Tesco Extra, tastes better than this one.
菜糕 RM2.20
The same Bak Kut Teh stall sells this too. They would have been better if the dumpling skin wasn't that easily punctured.

Otak-otak RM2.50
It smelled great but it's too soft and jelly-like. Highly NOT recommended.
Roasted Chicken Drumstick RM5.00
The same stall that sells the otak-otak sells this too. The roasted chicken was superb!! It's the only food at Song River Cafe that I like.
When I was there, I saw two kids kept ordering and eating roasted chicken from this stall. They seemed to love it very much.

Roti Babi RM4.00

Hokkien Loh Mee RM4.50
Tasted ordinary. The one at Presgrave is way better!

Jiashi Restaurant 家式

茄子豆腐 Brinjal Beancurd RM15.00

苦瓜夾蛋 Fried Egg with Bitter Gourd RM8.30

Kedai Makanan dan Minuman Kin Hong 健康饭食中心@ Gopeng

If happen to be in Gopeng for breakfast, you should give this a try. It's very popular among the residents in Gopeng and even some who are on their way north to Ipoh.
Here's the location.

Look at the crowd.

We reached there at around 8 o'clock in the morning and the Hor Fun was sold out. We had Bee Hoon instead.

All of the above with 3 bowls of noodle cost RM10.80. It's kinda cheap.
It opens very early in the morning. Since it has big crowd everyday, the food finished quite quickly.

Nature's Spoon 绿之味 (Vegetarian) @ Bayan Point

Nature's Spoon: I was not aware of the existence of this vegetarian shop until my colleague brought me there. The vegetarian food served there are very healthy. There wasn't any imitation meat served.

Besides, they sell other vegetarian products too.
