1. Kepong Food - Luckypot
This corner restaurant is the cream of the crop for fantastic indoor and outdoor dining experiences. In the heat of summer, enjoy the ambiance of the city around you while you enjoy your meal. When it gets colder, either order something warm or use the indoor area to keep out of the chill.
The menu holds a wide range of delights for many different palettes. Though, we were a big fan of the pumpkin sauerkraut fish. You are free to not take only our word for it, but we thought it was a lot better than many of the other options we have tasted in Malaysia.
If you are a fan of heat, their spicy wrapped fish was a delicious level of seasoning. One of our group had this along with the Taro fish pot, and we could tell she enjoyed every bite from the smile on her face.
2. Kepong Food - Hing Kee Bakuteh
When you are looking for some good Aeon Kepong Food, sometimes the answer is right next door rather than within its walls. Hing Kee Bakuteh is a small, cheap, and cheerful restaurant a street to the west of Aeon Mall.
The location is named for its pork rib broth, and of course, this is the restaurant’s specialty. The pork in the dish is a tender option, cooked to perfection with other well-prepared ingredients.
If you want anything else, then try the rice wine chicken. It’s a hit with the locals, which is always a sign of a good dish for visitors. That, plus some white rice, will get you through the day even if you do have to sit on plastic chairs for it.
3. Kepong Food - Saikong Kitchen
We were told that people come from long distances to try the Saikong kitchen, and it was easy to see why. The food was good, the portions were big, and we got served fast.
On top of this, the decor was clean and made us feel like we did not need to hurry. We enjoyed our meal and felt both content and calm after.
4. Kepong Food - Thai In Mookata
When looking for Thai food in Kepong, you could do a lot worse than finding the best steamboat venue in the region.
To set your expectations, Mookata Kepong has a set menu that you can choose from. Although there is an a la carte menu, you are not expected to use it. This means you might not find something perfect for you, but they are lucky that all their ingredients are delicious.
When eating, prepare for them to shock you with the taste of their sauces. Each one is homemade and with a signature recipe. This means you cannot get it anywhere else, and you will miss it when it is gone.
5. Kepong Food - Tan Heng Restaurant
Tan Heng is another great choice for simple and homely cooking that does not surprise you. It is a nice little noodle house for if you want to grab something as you pass by or you do not want to bother with anything more complicated.
The menu is moreish, with plenty of dishes that the chef has chosen to get you satisfied, but sadly little more. There is no room here for cuisine or fine dining. It is not somewhere to impress the family, but great for empty stomachs and empty wallets.
6. Kepong Food - Yoshi Yoshi Robata
This location tries hard to convince its customers that it is the best choice for sushi. Its website espouses its weight-watching benefits, its low cost, and its large portions. Although on visiting, it did not need to tell you all these things, as we had such a good time that those three points were the least of our concerns.
Our group was big fans of the spider rolls and forest rolls. These are well-formed, without over-use of any specific ingredients, and the chefs know how to present sushi on a plate. Almost nothing fell off, even when we ate it, meaning we got the full flavor of each piece.
If you want something a bit larger, then their don bowls are also sizeable, and they do not scrimp on the portions. Expect heaps of rice topped with plenty of ingredients that will leave you full by the end of the evening.
7. Kepong Food - Restoran Lieong Kee Bae Good Teh
A colleague told me to come here early at 6 AM, as that would be the best time to catch the restaurant staff in a good mood. They were right, as the location was not too busy and everyone was able to get me my food without rushing. It meant that I could savor the flavor of morning bak kut teh but not worry about needing to vacate my seat.
The early morning opening is not the only thing going on for this restaurant. The food was unique. It had a slight garlicky tang to it, which I am a fan of, and along with their pork tendon can give you the most satisfaction you can get in the region.
The same colleague who recommended the location told me that it gets its ingredients from a specialty location. Many of its menu options are not found elsewhere in the region. This has made it popular, and why a breakfast here can be better than the busier later times.
8. Kepong Food - Camp Forest
Despite being an open-air restaurant by the side of the road, this location makes every effort to take you away from the city’s bustle. With large plants on the border and quaint decor, you can expect to feel a calming mood overcome you as you dine.
Of all the places that we have visited, very few aim to give you such a calming experience as you eat.
Our group was a big fan of the yam basket. The contents of the “basket” were delicious and complemented the taro ring itself. Although this vegetarian dish is only one of many, the hosts aim to create a welcoming environment for non-meat-eaters.
9. Kepong Food - BBQK Korean Cuisine
If you are looking for Korean food in Kepong, there are a few places to go, although this is one of the best. Their food is very authentic and reminded me of the trips I have taken through South Korea in my travels.
The hosts are also friendly and entertaining when they bring out the food. One even made a small show of pouring out our drinks, which we did not expect but was welcome.
As for the food itself, the dishes are plentiful and taste perfect. I ordered the budae jjigae and it was both filling as well as flavorful. I left happy, and I have little doubt anyone else would find a favorite dish there.
When we left, the hosts surprised us with a coupon for free food on our next return. The more you come back, the more this coupon is worth. So if you return, you are saving both your money and your stomach from sadness.
10. Kepong Food - YK Noodles Restaurant
When my partner said that she wanted to try noodles, we tried searching around the area until we came across this small eatery. As we entered, they were searing fresh meat for a customer, and the smell we encountered let us know we had entered the right place.
YK Noodles has a large number of different options for their noodle dishes, allowing you to make specific requests as fit your tastes. Although you would do well to trust the chefs, as they know what they are doing when it comes to each dish.
Along with our noodle dish, we chose a selection of dumplings. Each had an exquisite flavor, and we find ourselves tempted to return for these alone in the future.
11. Kepong Food - Big Tree Head Mamak
It’s as simple as this: If you love fried chicken, you’re going to love Big Head Tree Mamak.
This open-air restaurant specializes in its deep-fried chicken along with many different extras to go with it. The chicken is both tender and juicy, as the proprietors know what they are doing after working with it for so long. They can also recommend to you what they think you will like the best.
The chefs use their own mix of seasonings to make the chicken flavorful. So, it should not be a surprise when it tastes like nothing you have ever had before. I had to go back for extra servings and stayed longer than I should have.
12. Kepong Food - Murni Discovery
Malaysian food can come from many different locations, depending on where the maker’s family is from. Many of our other reviews even talk about the local region’s specific restaurant styles.
Murni Discovery has the unique position of, instead of aiming for one style of food, trying to blend them all. Their gastronomic experts have made menu items that bring in food styles from all over the continent. This creates a choice between many delicious items.
I ordered the mee raja discovery. This noodle dish kept me going for many hours after, and the spices that they chose to flavor it were perfect. The chefs know what they are doing and cooked the dish to perfection.
They even offer food delivery in Kepong. Thus, you can ignore the bustle of the busy city and wait for the food to come to you instead.
13. Kepong Food - Fujisawa Izakaya
We almost missed this location, nestled on a street corner, and are happy that we didn’t. This place makes a good effort to provide freshly-sourced Japanese food to its patrons.
The place caters to both small groups and large, and you can get platters that suit a post-work party just as much as you can if you enter as a solo eater.
If you want a recommendation, it would be for the Fujisawa rainbow yee sang. It is a veritable mountain of food if you choose the larger of three options, demanding you bring many of your friends. Although, it was only the two of us so we picked up the “Lucky” medium size and felt satisfied.
14. Kepong Food - Sinchoiwah Restaurant
While this location is best suited to large groups such as conventions, you can still get a place to eat here either solo or with a small group. Remember to book ahead, though, to not see disappointment.
The restaurant offers many traditional meals, although each one is beautifully presented. The chefs take pains to ensure that you see the care taken with each piece. We recommend the steamed tiger grouper, but there is so much else here to try.
15. Kepong Food - Man Man Cafe
As a cafe, rather than a restaurant, we wanted to check their light refreshments. Although on entering, we could tell it was made for TikTok and Instagram users. It has a minimalist mood that is perfect for selfies.
The food here is good, although its ambiance is truly what stands out here. If you want a calm time, pop in.
16. Kepong Food - Restoran Eden Dim Sum City
There is plenty of good food all around Kuala Lumpur, but for some reason, we keep coming back to dim sum. There is something about these little parcels of deliciousness. And the Restoran Eden Dim Sum City exemplifies this.
In this casual environment, you can get exactly what you want and enjoy it in peace. Not one dish we tried disappointed us. Give it a go yourself.
17. Kepong Food - Fat Boon ABC Ais Kacang
Malaysia is often very hot, and on days like that, you will want to pass by here. Their shaved ice has many terrific flavors, and they go the extra mile to make their shaved ice extra special.
While they have other foods, they pale in comparison to their specialty. So head along when you get a chance.
18. Kepong Food - Uncle Don's
As another west/east fusion location, it is hard to know what to recommend here. If you want western food, then their bacon carbonara is to die for.
Although, if you are more of a fan of eastern fare, then you will want to pick up the sambal kapitan pork belly for a filling dish.
Their chefs are experts in all kinds of food, so do not be shy if you have specific needs or tastes. They will be happy to accommodate you.
19. Kepong Food - Kape 카페
Let’s be clear. Meals are not the thing you go to Kape for.
If you want a cute little coffee and a cake or biscuits, that is what Kape is known for. Their minimalist style makes the food they serve all the more like a piece of art, and you almost feel bad eating it. Although when you do, it tastes as good as it looks.
20. Kepong Food - The Jungle City Kitchen and Bar
This large, open area seats many in comfort and large amounts of space. This was true even long before many restaurants spaced out tables in recent years but continues to this day.
The food they serve is well-made and comes in a large number of styles. We would recommend you try the fried beef noodle and the Cantonese hor fun for the best time.
21. Kepong Food - Yee Wen Thai Food
There are plenty of Kepong Thai food locations in the area, but after trying many of them, this was one that we had to keep returning to.
The food tasted authentic, and its owners seemed to know what they were talking about when it came to food. We trusted them and asked them to make us whatever they recommended.
We tried the otak-otak at first, which we could smell as it arrived and had us drooling. It tasted just as good as it smelled, and had a wonderful texture. After that, we had the batter-fried kangkung, which was underwhelming compared to the otak-otak, but still pretty good.
Their stews were also good and kept us going through the rest of the day. So, if you can find it, you will have a wonderful meal, so definitely try it out on your visit.
22. Kepong Food - Happy City Steamboat @ Metro Prima
You cannot beat a proper steamboat dish in Malaysia. With a good broth and delicious ingredients, it can become very moreish. For that reason, we were very excited to try out the Happy City Steamboat restaurant and did not leave disappointed.
They specialize in many different kinds of seafood, even having many of the fish on display before your meal for you to see how fresh they are. When you receive your meal, they will also surprise you with how well-cooked the meal is. We removed the shellfish from its carapace without difficulty, and the meat was still firm, allowing us to savor the flavor.
My only issue would be the price for each steamboat. Although I could see why that is so high. The food is fresh, they included drinks in the meal’s price, and so in total, it is not much more than any other options in the area.
Servings are large, meaning that you can take your time and enjoy your meal while talking with your friends. The staff were also friendly and allowed us to ask questions when we had them. We are returning when we are in the area again.
23. Kepong Food - The Brew House K-Gallery
We found it unusual to discover a fusion of Asian and British/Irish dining in the middle of Malaysia, but we did not want to look a gift horse in the mouth.
Diving in, I sampled the Brew House English big breakfast while my partner had nasi goreng kambing. I’d say that many of the ingredients in the breakfast did not taste exactly as you might expect having tried the same in England before, but it was close. I would come back here for an early morning meal before heading out for travel.
As far as the drinks go, they do their best to import beers and stouts from Britain and Ireland. We managed to get a glass of Glenlivet and a Guinness. Although they did not pour the Guinness as one would in Ireland, it was nice to remember our holiday there.
The food was good, the ambiance is well-chosen, and the proprietors were friendly. It’s worth a go if you want a taste of the west.
24. Kepong Food - Yummei Restaurant
This place is well-known among the local community as a place to get breakfast before a busy day of work. Their specialty is lei cha, a kind of flavored porridge, and this can be especially filling before you go about other tourist activities. If you visit during lunch, they also offer many freebies, so no matter the meal, you will feel welcomed.
We would recommend the signature fried porridge. It is full of flavor and fills you up, with tea leaves and other ingredients mixed in. If you feel like it will not fill you, you can always grab a bit of rice too.
If you are a vegetarian, the location also serves lei cha to meet your needs. All you need to do is ask.
25. Kepong Food - Weng Kee Roasted Duck
I worried that the low price of this stall would mean that I was getting sub-standard food. Although the location soon proved that I was judging its offering prematurely.
The duck is delicious and succulent, and while it is not flavored, you are offered a large number of condiments to make your own combination.
They have many other offerings, although, of course, the roasted duck is what they are best known for.
