Cadbury M'sia Vs Cadbury England
On the left is our local Cadbury Fruit & Nut and on the right is the same thing but from England. You guys must know that its different eventhough its the same brand and same flavour. The quality of coco used is contrary, you will notice it if you have a bite and taste it. When you ever go overseas for holidays and wanna buy some chocolate back and think those designer chocolates are way too expensive to munch then go for the regular chocolates in supermarkets, they are better too.

KL Hunt 2 - Burger King
I guess my Penang friends have always heard of Burger King in television shows from America and don't find any in the pearl of the orient but think of the fact that we have all the great hawkers others don't!
OK, the burgers aren't anything super fantastic or what-so-ever. But the Whopper is larger than McDonald's Big Mac. The beef tastes better than Ronald's but the chips aren't anything special.
The first left pic shows 3 soft drink cups, I didn't notice there's a little promotion thingy there but Makan Hunter's friend saw it. So I peeled it and guess what? 3 large soft drinks gave the same thing - star shaped potatoes..... well I don't know is it everyone has the same thing but I didn't ask anyone cause its nothing special. Its just small hashbrowns starshaped.
Makan Hunter's Ratings : ITS JUST ANOTHER FAST FOOD RESTAURANT !!! NOTHING GREAT!

KL hunt - Madam Kwan's
HELLO folks! Makan Hunter is back from action.
After the long wait, Makan Hunter won't disappoint his supporters. As usual good food ratings are coming along.
Now here's the famous Madam Kwan's nasi lemak. Have you guys heard of Sakura's nasi lemak?In case you haven't, its originally famous for its nasi lemak and the recipe owner is this Madam Kwan so she decided to go solo on her own. ( this is just a story i heard from people in KL,its not really 100% trustable )
Let's forget about their story and focus on the FOOD... hehe
As you can see, the presentation is nice and remember ... looks can be deceiving but NOT this time.
Let me ring the 'gong' by elaborating the heart and soul of the dish - NASI(rice).
I can tell that it is high quality rice that is being used to cook with the aromatic smell of santan(coconut milk) that pampers your taste bud.
Nothing different from usual, there is half an egg on the right which is hard boiled but yet good in texture.
The ikan billis and ground nuts with chilli paste taste different from other vendors as its not too spicy yet bringing a dash of sourness in it.
F ollowed by two pieces of local curry chicken, "oops!" don't always worry the moment you hear the word 'curry', its not spicy. Local curry chicken "yumm.."; sweet,creamy,tender n juicy.
If you detailed the photo,you will see a small plate on top, those are pickles that we call "azhart"(don't really have a correct spelling). That's nothing phenomenal, just some cucumbers,pineapples,chillies and cabbage et cetera.
ok I dropped one important thing...
uh uh uh not the cucumbers....
Its the shrimp floss. Do you guys know Makan Hunter had to ask the waitress what is the floss made of? She didn't even know? Thanks to Makan Hunter, she finally knows what she serves to every customer! She went around asking and got back to me only after 7 minutes....

Nam Thean coffee shop is situated in the middle of batu lanchang lane its after the mobil station if you're coming from Jelutong road and its after Sunshine Jelutong if you're coming from town.
Basically, everyone is here for its fishhead *bihun! A lot of stalls tried to sell here but failed,they always give up and go elsewhere. Currently there's a noodle stall there.
*bihun : rice noodles
When I said fishhead bihun don't jump to conclusion that it serves only fishhead. Normally if you want fishhead, it comes fried. But I always think that they only fry the not-so-fresh ones to preserve as they also serve boiled ones. Makan Hunter chose to order boiled fish with "thin" bihun. You can have porridge or "thick" bihun but I chose "thin" bihun.The porridge is hokkien style it means its just rice in soup which is something that's not really good compared to Cantonese porridge. "Thick" bihun is smooth but it doesn't absorb the soup well so "thin" bihun is the best selection.
Here's the bihun! They sprinkle some greens and garlic oil with garlic pulps. The garlic oil really play an important role in the taste. It brings out the flavour of the soup. They seasoned the fish well. Its really a turn-on for people who enjoy food with light 'n' nice taste.
Makan Hunter's Ratings :
Taste : 8.5/10
* I don't rate the ambience,presentations etc when its in a hawker stall or coffee shop.

Here comes the caesar salad.The presentation is not bad with the colourful display of different vegetables.This caesar salad is quite typical as it is served with croutons and normal dressing.
