Joker Breaktime, Seremban Station & Ayam Penyet Best @ Summit USJ

Hello readers!
Can't believe it's almost one month since I last blogged.
September was pretty good for me; works are keeping me so busy lately, which I hope good things are bound to happen soon since my business was completely standstill during the MCO periods. 
Anyway, I hope you guys are doing well, doing awesome in September too!
Yes, today is another food post again after I finished one in the last month.
I'm going to blog about three different eating places under the same roof, tucked away in the Summit USJ shopping mall.
Back in January 2020, I had a short visit to the mall, and I remember that was quite a nice trip as I noticed some interesting eating places inside the mall which makes me decided to revisit again in last week. 
So, without dragging it too far, let's continue reading it and find out more about the makan-makan places at the Summit USJ shopping mall. :)


Nothing beats a slice of buttered toasted bread, fresh half-boiled eggs, and a cup of coffee for breakfast!
Start off the food trail with breakfast at the Joker Breaktime, located at ground floor tucked inside the Summit USJ mall.
The cafe serving a variety of breakfast and brunch fares; just say whatever comes to mind, Chee Cheong Fun, Yong Tau Fu, Nasi Lemak, Mee Goreng, Mee Hun Goreng, Toast/Steam Bread, Half-Boiled Eggs, Nyonya Kuih, everything is here!

The breakfast spot is very simple, nothing fancy, just a decent place to grab a simple breakfast or lunch plates, without breaking the bank.
The overall ambiance is pleasant, and the staffs are friendly and welcoming too.
Best is all the food and drinks are available anytime they're open. 

Here comes the typical Malaysian breakfast, such as Nasi Lemak, Egg Tart, Half-Boiled Eggs and Curry Puff.
I've fall in love with the Curry Puff; it's large, almost the size of one's palm.
The big crispy dough is stuffed with savory curried chicken chunks, egg, and also loads of curried potatoes. 
Great to enjoy it with a cup of hot Kopi O for sure!

There is also a list of toast and steam bread varieties, for instance Butter & Pandan Kaya, Butter & Sugar, Peanut Butter and also Peanut Butter & Pandan Kaya, with price range from RM3.00 - RM3.50.
The toasts are not just a spread but thick slice of butter sandwiched between perfectly toasted and steamed bread, satisfying!
Remember pair your toast with a cup of aromatic coffee too.

Besides, Chee Cheong Fun and Yong Tau Fu are one of the most ordered menus at Joker Breaktime.
Both are famous for its homemade , no wonder this menu are one of the "hot" items in the cafe.
Not only it is tasty, but it's also fulfilling to the stomach.
Absolutely delicious!

You can choose your Chee Cheong Fun to be a rolled one or a flat one, and also with the choice of sweet sauce, curry sauce, chili sauce or even a plain one with a little touch of sesame and soya sauce as dressings. 

Chee Cheong Fun is best to eat with Yong Tau Fu.
Allow yourself some extravagance when picking out their freshly homemade Yong Tau Fu, average RM1.60 per piece.
With a wide selection of ingredients, I'm sure you would be able to find your usual favourites right here. :)

Some simple noodles could be satisfying at breakfast in the morning or at lunch in the afternoon.
There are dried noodle and soup noodle varieties out there, surely a kind of comfort food that lifts your mood and warms your belly for the day. :)

Joker breaktime is a true Malaysian breakfast place not to be missed.

The second spot on our list is Seremban Station, located at lower ground inside the mall.
The restaurant has its roots from the Seremban Railway Station Restaurant, which was an establishment in 1933 favoured and patronized by British expatriates and locals alike.
Seremban Station serves specialty tastes and cooking style of Hainanese cooks of old Malaya as well as local dishes with its signature local cendol dessert. 
It's my first time dining at the restaurant, and I will definitely come back again in the future.

Seremban Station keeps the traditional as the core, with the dark wooden tables and chairs and also the tile flooring that gives a kind of vintage feel. 
The dining environment is comfortable where they provide a comfort of air-conditioner, and also a spacious seating places to the customers. 
It has a big menu that offers so many choices that you cannot try all in one go.
Not only that, the portions serve are generous, the prices are reasonable and the food taste are good too!

For those who loves petai, you probably should give a try on this Sambal Petai Seafood Fried Rice @ RM13.90.
The fried rice is filled with tender rice, loads of petai, prawns, squids and vegetables, and the overall taste was fried till the level I enjoyed eating it. :)

Dishes like Tom Yam, asam pedas are all my favourite, yum!
Asam Ikan Kembung with Rice @ RM9.80 has a proper combination of spicy and sour tastes that surely to whet your appetite.
Best to feast on it with lots of steamed rice!

Hainanese Chicken Chop with Rice @ RM14.90, a perfect comfort food to enjoy with it's juicy and tender boneless chicken, along with it's sweet and source sauce that packed with flavour.
Worth a try!

Mutton Curry with Rice @ RM11.90 is a lovely, wholesome meal that served with plain steamed rice. 
The set stuffed with plenty of mutton curry, and best thing about it is the muttons are all boneless.
I love how soft, how tender the chunks of meat cooked with the flavour spicy gravy. 

Hainanese Claypot Lamb Stew with Rice @ RM15.90 is my most favourite dish at the outlet.
It's also one of the popular signature dish serving at Seremban Station.
It has a generous portion of lamb shoulders (about 4 pieces), as well as other ingredients like carrots and potatoes that cut into thick pieces, and also hard-boiled egg. 
The set is served with rice and soup, and I think the thick and dark brown gravy can be best to eat with bread or even dry noodles too. 
Must try!

Being a fans of nasi lemak, I tried the Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang @ RM10.50 immediately without a second thought. 
As you can see it, the nasi lemak set is served with a hard-boiled egg, fried crispy anchovies, toasted peanuts, cucumber and tomatoes. 
It was pretty good in its taste wise, and the thick and spicy chicken curry cooked in the way I liked it too!

Chicken Curry with Rice @ RM9.50 is one of the comfort food to go with if you are craving for spicy dish.
The curry chicken is great; the meat is tender with plenty of gravy for the steamed rice. 

Nyonya Cendol in the house!
Truly for those who loves cendol, Homemade Fresh Nyonya Cendol with Premium Gula Melaka @ RM5.50, is a must try at Seremban Station!
The cendol strands at Seremban Station are own made daily, no machines are used to form the cendol strands, it is all manually grated on a mould.
Also, they do not use any preservatives and colourings, all the green hue is made out from pandan juice and also fresh coconut milk, completely natural.
The cendol tasted very differently with what I had before; the naturally made cendol are bigger and longer, it gives an extra chewy texture to the jellies, with a very nice fragrant due to the pandan leaves. 
Loving it muchhh!

In addition, traditional Malaysian breakfast like Roti Kiap, Butter & Pandan Kaya @ RM2.80, and also Hard-Boiled Egg @ RM1.50 are also available at Seremban Station too. 
You can also get their "Hailam Char" Set @ RM7.80 that includes Roti Kiap, two Half-Boiled Eggs and a cup of coffee or tea on the table in the morning too. 

Seremban Station could be a good place to have a quick drink or some snacks too.
Here, we have the Nyonya Muffin @ RM1.80/pc, handmade Kaya Butter Puff @ RM2.00/pc, 2 pieces of steamed Cai Kuih @ RM4.60 and also Rempenyek @ RM22.00/450gram.
I personally love the Kaya Butter Puff so much; the puff pastry is crispy and also filled with rich and thick gula melaka paste.

Do give Seremban Station a visit and enjoy their food and beverages.
I really enjoyed their Hainanese Claypot Lamb Stew with Rice, Mutton Curry with Rice, Nasi Lemak with Chicken Rendang,  Homemade Fresh Nyonya Cendol and also Kaya Butter Puff.
These will be my top choices if I'm going there again. :)

And finally, we paid a visit to the Ayam Penyet Best located at ground floor, near to the escalator from the car pack.
Ayam Penyet Best was founded in June 2010, mainly serves authentic mouth-watering Indonesia dishes to Malaysians and South East Asians.
It is a famous Indonesian food and beverage chain in Malaysia, which has more than 15 outlets across Malaysia in less than a decade of operations.

Clean and comfortable dining environment, friendly staff with warm welcome, authentic Indonesian food and beverages, what else could you ask for? :)

First thing to try at Ayam Penyet Best is the signature dish, Ayam Penyet Best @ RM12.50.
It is an Indonesian dish, more precisely it's East Javanese cuisine.
The fried chicken dish consisting of fried chicken that is smashed with the pestle against mortar to make it softer, served with sambal, slices of cucumbers, fried tofu and tempe.
I'm a fans of ayam penyet; I find the chicken is perfectly fried, creating a crunchy crust on the outside, and juicy and soft meat in the inside.
Oh well, don't forget to mention their in-house made sambal, it is spicy but totally worth it. 

Apart from serving the delicious ayam penyet, you can also find some other set meals that comes with the same ayam penyet but in different rice options, for instance Nasi Goreng Pattaya Penyet @ RM16.90, a stuffed omlette fried rice with smashed marinated fried chicken.

And then, the Nasi Goreng Kampung Penyet @ RM14.50, that serves with kampung fried rice, fried egg and of course the smashed marinated fried chicken.

Well, if you are looking for something else, other than the ayam penyet, you can also try another famous dishes that made with Balado sauce.
Balado is a type of hot and spicy bumbu (spice mixture) found in Minang cuisine of West Sumetra, Indonesia. 
It is made by stir frying ground red hot chili pepper with other spices including garlic, shallot, tomato, and key lime juice in coconut or palm oil.
Ikan Bawal Balado @ RM 16.90 is one of the must try, which is a deep fried pomfret with chili topping.
The whole fish was perfectly fried, moist flesh smothered with the flow of their in-house sambal topping. 

Udang Balad @ RM14.90, served with a deep fried prawn, and topped with the same chili topping as the Ikan Bawal Balado, together with side dishes such as lalab vegetables, fried tofu and tempe.

For beef lovers, you may also try their Rendang Daging Padang Asli @ RM12.90, an original dry beef rendang. 

Iga Penyet @ RM19.90 is a smashed marinated fried beef ribs.
The fried beef ribs are served with lalab vegatables, clear soup and steamed rice.
It's not really my type of dish as I find the beef ribs are a bit too hard and dry for my taste buds.

Sup Rawon @ RM10.50 is the traditional Indonesian beef herb soup.
The soup tastes so rich and flavourful, and the marinated beef chunks are very tender and delicious. 
It's my first time having this kind of black soup, but surprisingly I'm loving it so much!

Tehbotol Sosro @ RM6.90 is a well known tea brand in Indonesia.
It's a jasmine tea that you can easily get everywhere in Indonesia, but only available at Ayam Penyet Best in Malaysia. 
The tea has an uniquely refreshing taste which is good to enjoy it after the heavy meals. 
I love the taste, it's delicious on a hot summer day!

Overall, it's a great dining experience at Ayam Penyet Best.
The food are delicious, the staffs are friendly, and the dining ambience are welcoming too.
One thing I love the most from the eating place is the sambal that comes with all the meals, it tastes good, with burning spicy but very nice! 
I really enjoy the sambal with all the dishes on the table.

That's all for today's sharing.
Hope you guys enjoy reading my food post.
Since our country restrict travel to help slow the spread of Covid-19, it's best we all stay back at our home country; spend the weekend on cuti-cuti Malaysia to help revive and boost the domestic tourism, and also spare your time on cari makan-makan in Malaysia by supporting food and beverages from the local F&B businesses. 
Last but not least, take care and stay safe, everyone! #hugs
