SS 2

3/5(1 area review)

Well-liked for its shopping and restaurants, you might stop by Paradigm Mall and Atria Shopping Gallery while you're exploring SS 2 and the surrounding neighborhoods.

SS 2
Grew up on this stuff! This is called Roti Canai. "Roti" refers to the rolled out bread on the side and the curry is just for some flavour. :)

Bukit Gasing

Bukit Gasing might not have many top sights, but Mid Valley Mega Mall and Pearl Point Shopping Mall are two attractions nearby that you can check out.

Bukit Gasing
干捞云吞面, "Dry-style wonton noodles". This place has one of the best in PJ. The wonton noodles here are made using the traditional egg noodles that are springy and flavorful. You don't get the awful taste of strong boric acid (like a lot of other places have) and its made to the perfect springy texture. Topped with wonton and char siew

Taman Sri Manja

While Taman Sri Manja isn't home to many top sights, Sunway Pyramid Mall and Bukit Jalil National Stadium are some notable places to visit nearby.
