Food In Langkawi: Telaga Harbour

I love this location.. What not to love about it? Nice scenery, beautiful luxury boats & plenty of food. This is a nice place to snap some pictures & just relax (after the tiring whole day shopping spree) . The picture below is Tun's 'The Loaf'. I like the selections of bread here, but there's also other food and I've once had a breakfast here. Had a very nice family breakfast and I just love their breads.

Mare Blu Cafe
We chosed to dine here that night. My husband ordered lamb shank, I had salmon and the kids had spaghetti with clams. They were okay, everybody finished their food except the kids. They were so shocked when their food arrived as it was full with clams..

Food In Langkawi: Restoren Pak Hj. Ya Nasi Ayam

The first time my husband told me there's a very delicious chicken rice restaurant here in Pekan Kuah , I was so excited. The first time we went there, they're sold out (around 3pm). The next trip to Langkawi we determined to go there early. We're in luck!

As you can see the restaurant is very simple and more like coffee shop- style.

After the food arrived, I was speechless... Really..! Where's the chili sauce? After 1 spoonful, I was surprised.. It actually tasted delicious.. A very different style of chicken rice, I'd say. You SHOULD try it!!

Food in Langkawi: Hole in The Wall, Sungai Kilim

This floating restaurant is a great stop after a few hours of eagle watching, bat cave exploring & boating activity. To get here, you can go with the tour package at the Sungai Kilim Jetty or if you plan just to hv lunch or dinner at the restaurant, call the number below, & the restaurant will send a boat for you FOC (how great is that). It only take 7 minutes from jetty to the restaurant.

Here, you can select your own fresh seafood & while the chefs are doing their magic, you can kill time by visiting & even feed somec ollections of fish just a few steps away (seriously, you'll be amazed).

The foods are delicious, as it's very fresh and worth a trip.

Hole In The Wall Restaurant & Fish Farm For lunch & dinner reservations : 012-5620015

At the feeding area, you can watch Langkawi's White Bellied Sea Eagles & Brahminy Kite Eagles flying quite at a close range. They're so beautiful (I never actually like bird watching before, so it's a nice experienced for me).

The bat cave is quite interesting as well. It's quite scary though. Before we went there I never thought that I hv to through a cave where'shundreds, or even thousands of bats are hanging all over it (kindda stupid, huh) & the smell... I'm glad I didn't know though, I'd hv had a second thought, & might not even went. So, I'm so proud that I've made it, even if I just stayed in the cave for less than 5 min..

How to go there?
- Need to go to Kg Kilim. Then there's a small road towards the river. You need to ride a boat to the restaurant.. Have FUN!

Food in Langkawi: Buffalo Park

*Buffalo Park Langkawi is located within a panoramic view of Gunung Raya and Gunung Mat Cincang.Surrounded by paddy field, rubber plantation ang tropical rain forest.It takes about 30 minutes travelling by road from Kuah town and 10 minutes from the Langkawi International Airport.*

This is one of a great venue to visit with your family and friends. I sure did enjoy it. The buffalos were so adorable (for me), I just can't stop feeding them.. haha.. quite an experienced. At least now adam & ammar have met a buffalo eye to eye, I'd say.

They're selling various flavoured milk, youghurt, ice cream, mozarella cheese. Suprisingly, the milk, youghurt & ice cream tasted very good. They don't even have that milky smell like cow's milk do.. I did finish two bottles of strawberry flavoured buffalo milk that day, which kindda weird because normally,I can hardly finished one bottle of same flavoured of cow's.

All of the products was made freshly there on the farm, and if you're lucky, you can even watch the process of making the mozarella cheese in the morning. I think it's better to call them to confirm the time.

For Adam & Ammar, of course they love the ice-creams..

How to go there? At the corner of Jalan Nyior Chabang you'll need to enter a small road toward the buffalo Park. Just follow the sign.. You'll reach there..

Home Made Burger

My niece Lydia & I tried out this home made burger recipe from Chef Bob of Hotel UiTM Shah Alam one evening. After we finished with the meat part, then only we realised that we didn't have any bun to go with it. So I looked in Alex Goh's book and tadaaa... Try it.. Very simple and easy to make.


  • Minced Beef/Lamb/Chicken
  • Chopped Carrot
  • Chopped Onion (I used yellow onion)
  • Breadcrumbs
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Egg
*I added some garlic and chopped celery as well

Mix everything together, shape them as you like, and refrigerate. Take them out once you want to grill them.

Burger Bun (Alex Goh)


  • 400g Bread flour
  • 20g sugar
  • 6g salt
  • 1T milk powder
  • 2t instant yeast
250ml water

30g shortening

  1. Mix A till well blended. Add B & knead to form a dough.
  2. Add C & knead to form a smooth dough.
  3. Let it prove for about 45 min or double in size.
  4. Divide the dough into 80g portions, mold into balls and put into greased pan.
  5. Let them prove for 15 min, then flatten slightly and continue to let them prove for 30 min.
  6. Brush with water and sprinkle some sesame seeds on top.
  7. Bake at 190C for 12-15 min.
  8. Slice the bun horizontally, spread top and bottom with butter/margarine.
  • Place some lettuce on the bottom part of the bun, then top it with a grill burger. Arrange the cucumber, tomato, onion slices, cheddar cheese(optional) and spread some mayonnaise and chilli sauce/ketchup on top.
