What To Eat In SS2
SS2, Petaling Jaya needs no introduction when it’s about food hunting. Known as a hustling affluent suburb that probably never sleeps in Petaling Jaya, a walk through the array of eateries isn’t complete without the smell of freshly baked brownies/caramelly coffees or the aromatic nasi lemak that makes you drool!
So, The Kind Helper has made this list for you where if you happen to be at SS2, you don’t have to waste your time looking for a restaurant to feed your hungry tummy.
1. Toast & Roast
Fancy a bowl of Hakka Mee where the egg noodles come with either char siew (caramelised pork) or siew yok (roasted pork)? The crunchy, juicy and roasted to perfection char siew is a must to try as they have a melt-in-mouth texture. Plus, if you are indecisive like me, taking forever flipping through the menu, you can order ‘anything la’ and savour the secret dish the chef has for you!
Address: 20, Jalan SS 2/72, Seksyen 19, 47300 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.
Opening hours: 8:30AM – 4:00PM Daily
2. Laguna Filipino Bar & Restaurant
Serving authentic Filipino dishes, it’s a feast to your taste buds when you order Philippine specialities like Sinigang and Adobo. Sinigang is a meat-based refreshing tamarind soup and vegetables where people usually go for pork. If there were one dish Filipino moms could eat every day, it’s absolutely the delicious Sinigang.
Besides, meat stewed in vinegar and soy sauce is Adobo, the most adored dish. Bring along your Filipino friends who miss home, as you can sing your heart out in the free karaoke session after a hearty meal.
