Warisan Bonda Restaurant


Warisan Bonda Restaurant




Nowadays, not many Malays own and run their own restaurants. Many of the restaurants are owned and run by the Indian Muslim community and many of these are open for 24 hours a day.


The Warisan Bonda restaurant in Ampang however, is owned and run by the youthful 40 something Ms Zuraidah Zainal Abidin who declined to be photographed.

The restaurant has been open for business for more than 10 years already, and according to its owner it has become a landmark of sorts among the local community who use it as a meeting point with friends.

The decor is simple, nothing fanciful, with some beautiful ceiling- hung lampshades made by a friend and  some drawings done by the owner's young daughter.

Customers can order ala carte or from the buffet spread.

The restaurant is neat and clean. It has even earned "A Clean Premises" certification from the local authorities.

Prices of the food are reasonable. A plate of fried rice with a telur mata lembu (poached egg) and a drink would only set you back by a few dollars.

The restaurant which is located just opposite Sekolah Menengah Taman Kosas, Ampang, Selangor, is open for business from 8.30 am to 7.00 pm on Mondays to Saturdays and from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm on Sundays. It is closed on the third Sunday of the month and  during HariRaya Adifitri and HariRaya Haji.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
