We stumbled across Restoran Periuk Belanga in Kelana Jaya while looking for another restaurant, and to our surprise it was a real find! The first sign of a good restaurant is that it is always packed during lunch and dinner time. The food was expectedly spicy, but in a good way. Besides, drinks are cheap enough to be ordered twice or even thrice.
Kasturi Assam Boi for RM 1.80 - green, sweet and sour to taste.

The menu was organized into standard categories : Set meals, ala carte chicken, fish, beef, squid and vegetables in various styles. On the first try we decided to go ala carte. Portions were small, in accordance with the price, but was surprisingly tasty and delicious.
Ayam goreng kunyit - Fried Chicken bits with ginger - pop corn sized chicken with the aromatic fragrance of fried ginger - RM 7
Stir fried kailan with salted fish - RM 6
Our top 2 favourites at Periuk Belanga - Sambal Squid. The sambal was exquisite, even more so were the squids.
So good that we order it whenever we eat here. (RM 8)

Last but not least, presenting Periuk Belanga's Ayam Penyet, RM 8 per set with rice, RM 7 without :
The chicken was fantastic. Penyet to the core - tender and infused with crushed spices.
This ayam penyet is our favourite at Periuk Belanga we could have a dozen of it!
Assam ayam - not for the faint hearted.
Restoran Periuk Belanga is located in Jalan SS6/20a, Petaling Jaya, near Nasi Lemak Cikgu. A good and cheap spicy eat that is delicious and does not put a hole in the wallet.

Feeling in the mood for some atas breakfast, my sis and I made our way to Publika, Solaris Dutamas for a food expedition. We had decided on the Red Beanbag after an extensive research online. Thanks to the gushing reviews of the food there, expectations were high. Indeed, there was a 15 minute queue when we arrived, which to me was A Good Sign (in my theory, the longer the line, the better the food).

*Atas: Malay word for "upper-crust", "high class" or more accurately, "anything pricey".Back home, an interrogation of sorts ensued:
"How much was the food?"
"RM 22 for two eggs."
"Wah, so expensive. Ostrich eggs ah?"
"No, chicken eggs. From atas chicken."
"You could have had 22 eggs."The Atlantic RM 22. 

Poached eggs on french toast with smoked salmon, fried mushrooms and Australian spinach topped with hollandaise sauce and salmon roe. The magic was in the buttery french toast.Baked eggs RM 18. 

A hearty mixture of whole runny eggs with Italian sausages, tomato puree, potatoes and Mozzarella cheese. A piping hot affair served with a side of bread, just the right thing for a half-starved, undernourished girl on a rainy Saturday.
Said girl playing with her food. See her smile of pure joy for not having to eat salads. Again.Salted caramel cheesecake RM 14. 

Surprisingly light and fluffly, with a hint of peanut butter in the caramel sauce.Cappuccino RM 9. 

A frothy end to a very satisfying brunch.
Picollo Latte RM 9 

Mine was an extra potent brew which kept yours truly edgy the entire day. And this was after multiple attempts at diluting it with water.
The interior. Service was fast despite the place being packed to the seams. Our waiter was efficient and friendly. I liked that each table had its own bottle of water we could help ourselves to. It was overall a nice experience for a yuppie breakfast instead of the usual roadside wanton mee.
