Chicken & Prawn Hor Fun at Restoran Pau Kee in KL

Went to the Restoran Pau Kee in the late morning for breakfast. Ordered the Chicken & Prawn Hor Fun,  a plate of chicken, a plate of vegetable and tea.

I walked to this Restoran Pau Kee from The Westin &  JW Marriott Hotel and it took me about 15 minutes to reach this food outlet. One prominent sign to look out is the Honda Motor showroom shop house and the road signage –  Jalan Barat.  You can see a coffee shop the front of Jalan Barat. Just keep walking in; along the small road and you should be able to locate this restaurant.

You can choose to be seated outside or inside ( which is air conditioned ).  I prefer to be seated inside; as Kuala Lumpur is very hot & humid even in the morning.

The food here is good and value for money.  My friend told me about the delicious hor fun ( rice noodles ) here. Having tried the food that I ordered, I would say my top preference was the steamed chicken, followed by the Hor fun and the green vegetables. The green vegetables was good but the sauce was rather salty.

Do try out this food outlet when you are in Bukit Bintang or around Pavilion mall. It is worth the walk.

Amari Hotel Johor Bahru

Stayed at Amari Hotel Johor Bahru in Superior room with King Size bed. This hotel is new and is not fully completed. At that time, the swimming pool and Gym were not ready yet.  Amari Johor Bahru is located directly opposite the Komtar JBCC mall. The location of Amari is good; as it is opposite Komtar JBCC and City Square mall. However crossing the road from Komtar JBCC to the hotel is a hassle. You need to dash across the busy road when the traffic gets lighter. Hopefully they could built a pedestrian bridge soon.

To  access  Amari hotel, walked towards the entrance of the small shopping mall in the building, take the escalator up and then walked towards the door out of the mall towards another entrance door. Thereafter, take the lift up to the 6th floor and it will bring you to the hotel lobby. Rather strange way of accessing a hotel; but it is fine with me.

Check in was fast and the staff at the check in counter were courteous and helpful.  The superior room itself was quite compact in size but sufficient for 2 persons. Everything in the room were new. The king size bed was firm and the pillows were soft and comfortable. Sufficient toiletries were provided in the bathroom. The shower was great but you need to wait a while for the hot water to flow into the shower heads. Unlike most hotels, there is no need to slot your room card into a  card slot on the wall ( there is none ) to turn on the lights and air conditioned. It is a Smart room; and the TV in the room is also a Smart TV.

Breakfast was served in a beautiful restaurant located on the same floor as the main lobby.  There were limited choices of breakfast spread available.  As compared to similar hotel liked Doubletree Hilton JB and Renaissance Hotel; the breakfast served at Amari is rather basic and limited in choices. I am not too sure whether it is due to the fasting month of Hari Raya or because the Hotel is not fully operational yet.  Anyway this is a something that hotel can easily improved upon.

Overall, Amari Johor Bahru is a nice hotel to stay. It is conveniently located near the  2 malls and CIQ JB Sentral.  The room was comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. Didn’t get to see the swimming pool as it was not ready yet. Yes, I will come back soon.
