    Lorong Seratus Tahun is famed for its wide variety of local delicacies. Be it curry mee, Nyonya laksa, nasi lemak or even their otak-otak. Wrapped beautifully in two layers of pandan leaves, its core content is well encased and steamed to perfection. Thus creating a smooth, rich and delicate piece of otak-otak. It's also really fishy in both smell and taste, which is great to most people. All and all, this serving of snack is definitely well worth the try.

    Kafe Pin Chou isn't exactly the type of place you'll find that exactly. Located in the quieter corner of SS2, PJ, Kafe Pin Chou is a humble coffee shop that has a good variety of local food to serve. Though the otak-otak isn't exactly done by them, it's served in the cafe by a third party supplier. It's what you'll expect from a decent otak-otak, rich in fish flavour and is slightly spicy. Not to mention that they are equally as addictive as well. One basket can barely be enough. 

    Tips

    Cash only.

    Mapley 223, or rather, Food Court 223 to some people. It's an incredibly huge food court with plenty of things to eat. Not only that, the crowd here is pretty solid too! You definitely will not feel lonely at all when you're here, and it is also a great place to chill out with friends. Amongst many of its food available, the otak-otak is certainly a great snack. It's rich and delicate, but doesn't taste all that fishy. This may be great to some, and not so to others. So do choose wisely.

    Utara Coffee House is the lobby restaurant of Armada Hotel PJ. Not only do they have quite the selection of buffet spread, most of what is available are done pretty well. The price isn't all that ridiculous so families can still have a decent buffet meal without needing to sell their kidneys. As for their otak-otak, though it may be a buffet, it still is pretty decent. It has a pretty good fishy flavour that everyone loves, as well as spices and seasoning. All and all, it's not the greatest, but it ain't that bad either.

    Constant promos are available. Do check before hand.

    myElephant has won numerous awards for its range of amazing Thai dishes. Not only are they delicious, they are affordable as well. Their "Khai Jiao Ho Mok" (otak-otak omelette) is without a doubt, one of the best appetisers or side dishes available. It is incredibly well seasoned and flavoured, making it a perfect compliment with some rice. Served with a side of homemade chilli that is both tangy and sweet, which is a great compliment to the otak-otak omelette itself. 

    Tips

    Come before 7 if you wish not to wait.
