Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas - Authentic Johor Street Food

Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas - Authentic Johor Street Food

Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas

Don's Warong which is located B-0-4, Plaza Damas, Jalan Sri Hartamas 1, Taman Sri Hartamas, Desa Sri Hartamas 50480 Kuala Lumpur is famed for its popular Johor street food. You can check out Don's Warong Facebook page for more information.


Although it has been opened for business for more than 6 years now, we have just gotten the chance to taste some of its famous dishes such as the Laksa Johor (only served on Sat and Sun) and many more dishes as we take the gastro journey to the South of Malaysia, Johor.


Don's Warong has its origin from the famous Uncle Don which is a Malay style Warong in Sri Hartamas. With some recipes pass over from the Uncle Don, you can be sure of its authentic taste. You can check out the published recipe book Johor Palate which is co-author by Don's Warong owner mother (sister of Uncle Don); if you want to try your hand at cooking some of these dishes.

Mee Rebus Johor

We start off our dinner with an order of the famed Mee Rebus Johor (RM12). Served with a thick gravy with condiments on the side such as the fried keropok, bean sprout, beef meat, eggs and Taufu Goreng is a real treat.

DW Sup Tulang

Next on our table is the DW Sup Tulang (RM15). The broth is boiled with a combination of spices with thick chunks of meaty bones that the tender meat falls off from the bones together with potatoes, carrots and onions make it a wholesome meal with a bowl of steaming white rice.

Dons Warong Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor With Ayam Goreng Berempah

We heard that the Nasi Lemak Kukus Johor With Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM12.50) was very popular with the crowd at Don's Warong. An order of this dish is probably mandatory. There are only 2 things that distinguish between a good and bad Nasi Lemak for me. One is the rice must be rich and aromatic while the second thing which is the sambal should be a balance of sweetness, savoury and spicy level. In this 2 points; it passed our benchmark for a truly delicious Nasi Lemak.

Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah

If you are not a fan of the Nasi Lemak; you can try out the Nasi Goreng Kampung Muar With Ayam Goreng Berempah (RM15). The Fried rice is fried with spices and the chef has fried it to the right Wok Hei. This Fried rice is served with keropok and a special sambal belacan sauce on the sides.

The Don Burger

At Don's Warong; besides serving the Johor popular dishes; you can also find a few western dishes; one of the best western dishes is The Don Burger (RM19) which is a quarter pound beef patty sandwiched in between buttered bun which is topped with beef bacon slices, fried eggs, lettuce, tomatoes, onions rings and bedded with a special sauce. Served on the sides are Fries.

Cucur Udang Special

There are a few appetisers that one can choose from at Don's Warong; either as a starter or for your in-between meal snacks. One of the snacks that we tried is the Cucur Udang Special (RM8). The batter is in-house made and fried ala-minute to ensure that you get to enjoy this crispy on the outside and soft on the inside snacks. It is served with Mak Li homemade chilli sauce.

Keropok Lekor MokCik

The second appetizer we tasted is the Keropok Lekor MokCik (RM9)- this is a dish not from Johor but from the east coast states. This keropok is also served with  Mak Li homemade chilli sauce.

Ais Kacang Johor With Chocolate Sauce

For desserts; we were introduced to the Ais Kacang Johor With Chocolate Sauce (RM8). 

Kopi Muar with Ice Cream

or the famed Kopi Muar with Ice Cream (RM11.50). It is kind of like float drinks, instead of a fizzy drink; they use the famous Muar coffee as its base.

Don's Warong @ Plaza Damas, Sri Hartamas Breakfast Menu

Don's Warong also serves special breakfast and lunch set; do check out their facebook page for more details and offers.

Publika Food | 4Play Seafood and Co

4Play Seafood and Co

There is a new restaurant in Publika which is 4Play Seafood and Co and is located at A1-G2-07 JALAN DUTAMAS 1, Publika, Kuala Lumpur and one of their many specialities is down to its' seafood and Western Oriental fusion dishes. For more information and promotion offer, check out 4Play Seafood and Co facebook page

Publika Food 4Play Seafood and Co

Opened barely less than 1 month, 4Play Seafood and Co is frequented for its seafood dishes especially to those that love crab dishes which comes with a few special flavours that are simply enticing and best eaten with fried mantao or just a plain bowl of steaming white rice.

Publika Food 4Play Seafood and Co

With a simple setting and an elaborate Chef that started at La Bodega and Two Sons Bistro; is in charge of the new menu at 4Play Seafood and Co. The menu is still undergoing some changes to some of its flavour that will cater to the crowds frequenting Publika.

Wild Mushroom Soup

Our review started with an order of Wild Mushroom Soup (RM20.00) which boasts the combination of the blended shitake, oyster and white mushroom which is simmered with a rich cream broth and drizzle with truffle oil that has a distinct mushroom flavour and taste.

Butter Garlic Mushrooms

Our next chef recommended appetizer is the Butter Garlic Mushrooms (RM21.00). The Chef has a penchant for dishing perfectly executed mushroom dishes. Here again; like our soup, it has a strong mushroom flavour which is enhanced by the use of a blended butter, garlic and basil sauce.

Golden Salted Eggs Yolk Chicken

Next on, we move on to order some Golden Salted Eggs Yolk appetizer, the first of which is the Chicken Golden Salted Eggs Yolk(RM25.00). The Chicken meat is lightly battered with Salted Eggs Yolk and sauteed with curry leaves, onions, chilli padi and chilli flakes which leaves a strong curry flavour.

Golden Salted Eggs Yolk Prawns

This Golden Salted Egg Yolks dish can also be ordered with Prawns (RM28.00) as the base ingredients. The deshell prawns made it easy to be eaten as an appetiser. But for some, you may order some white rice to go with this salted egg yolk dish.

Calamari Golden Salted Eggs

While for the squid lovers, there is the Calamari Golden Salted Eggs (RM25.00). All these salted eggs dishes are best to be eaten with an icy cold draught beer as it has that slightly salty taste of the salted duck eggs but fans of the salted will relish on these offerings.

Creamy Spinach Stuffed Mushroom

Another one of the Chef popular dishes is the Creamy Spinach Stuffed Mushroom (RM22.00) as a starter. Using portobello mushroom as the base; it is topped with flame cheese that melted and encompasses the filling.

Spicy Chilli Mussels

Next, we move on to some Chef speciality seafood dishes, the first of which is the Spicy Chilli Mussels (RM35.00). This dish has a slightly spicy sourish taste. We were recommended to eat this with the Toasted Garlic Bread to scoop up the chilli sauce.

Creamy Butter Chilli and Curry Leaves Clams

This is then followed by the Creamy Butter Chilli and Curry Leaves Clams (RM30.00). I personally like this flavour which has a strong aroma and coupled with the freshness of the Clam, it was a real treat and for this, we ordered a bowl of white rice to finish off the creamy buttery flavourful sauce.

Coconut Cream and Chilli Crab

The Star of 4Play Seafood and Co is the Coconut Cream and Chilli Crab (RM75.00). Each order of the seafood dishes is at the weight of 500 gram. The sauce was quite good which went perfectly with an order of Fried mantao as the dip.  Customers have a choice to order the crab, clams or mussels dishes with others flavours (all in 6 different sauce base) as well; with the sides of white rice, toasted garlic beard or fried mantao to go with these seafood dishes.

Jalapeno, Sundried Tomato, Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken

Our final main dish is the Jalapeno, Sundried Tomato, Cream Cheese Stuffed Chicken (RM35.00). For this dish; there is a tad of saltiness to my taste. If you like to eat less salty taste; please make sure to have the chef reduce its saltiness during your order. For me; it would have been ideal to use the thigh drumstick quarters for this as it has a more tender and juicy meat texture.
