Satay Willy
Sungai Ramal Food Junction, Kajang
Sate Kajang pastinya bukanlah nama yang asing dikalangan rakyat Malaysia. Daripada kanak-kanak sehinggalah yang tua pasti tahu dan pernah merasakan keenakan sate Kajang. Apabila berbicara tentang sate Kajang, tidak dapat tidak nama Haji Samuri akan menjadi bualan. Namun di Sungai Ramal Food Junction, terdapat Satay Willy yang semakin mencipta nama.
Beroperasi bermula sebelah petang, barisan beratur akan mula panjang selepas jam 6 petang dan mencapai kemuncak pada jam 8 malam. Sate yang dihidangkan di sini sangat ‘juicy’ dan lembut dan begitu mudah memikat selera siapa saja yang merasainya.  Dengan harga yang amat berpatutan iaitu bermula daripada 70 sen, ia pastinya berbaloi untuk dicuba.

Makan dengan ketupat nasi, memang terbaik!

Gerai Satay Willy ini menawarkan aneka pilihan sate berserta set lengkapnya seperti timun dan bawang serta kuah yang pekat dan sedap. Juga terdapat lontong iaitu nasi impit berbalut daun pisang berbentuk lemang yang amat mengenyangkan. Keenakan Satay Willy ini dikatakan setaraf dengan satay Haji Samuri malah ada pelanggan yang tidak ragu-ragu mengatakan Satay Willy lebih sedap dan berbaloi.
Oleh kerana kedudukannya di ‘food junction’ maka makanan lain turut terdapat daripada gerai yang lain untuk variasi. Minuman juga boleh dipesan dari mana-mana gerai minuman yang ada di situ.
Mali’s Corner
Taman Bunga Raya, Jalan Malinja 2,
Taman Bunga Raya, Setapak Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur menjanjikan makanan yang terbaik walaupun berasal daripada tempat lain. Char kuey teow yang berasal daripada Pulau Pinang masih boleh dinikmati ketulenannya di Mali’s Corner, Setapak.

Rasa char kuey teow di sini amat sedap dan menyelerakan dengan kuah yang berperisa dan juga udang yang segar.

Walaupun barisan menunggunya agak panjang, namun servis gerai ini amat baik kerana mereka memiliki pekerja yang ramai.
Mali's Corner
Char Koey Teow yang sedap
Mali’s Corner kini memiliki beberapa lagi cawangannya ditempat-tempat yang lain untuk memberikan rasa char kuey teow Pulau Pinang sebenar kepada penduduk Kuala Lumpur.
Salah satu kelemahannya adalah pelanggan terpaksa beratur untuk char kuey teow,  nasi lemak dan minuman. Ini bererti pelanggan yang keseorangan perlu beratur beberapa kali untuk mendapatkan sajian lengkap.
Untuk lebih selesa mungkin anda boleh pergi ke cawangan di Petaling Jaya. Ianya di dalam kedai dan suasananya lebih menarik. Alamat cawangan di Petaling Jaya adalah di Jalan PJS 4/27a (Jalan PJS 2d/1), 46000 Petaling Jaya, Selangor.

5. XIUMIN 

Xiumin is one of the lead vocalists and lead dancers of EXO-M. He and Chen are the two Korean members of the group. They were chosen to be placed in EXO-M because even though they’re Korean, they both look Chinese. Xiumin was rated by his fellow EXO-M members as the strongest, funniest, and cleanest member of the group. He is known to be a prankster, and according to Luhan, he has a lot of cute/funny gestures. He is the first to wake up in the morning, and the person who cleans the most, but that’s to be expected from the oldest member of the group. While many members in EXO want to be world superstars later on in life, he wants to be an architect.

6. CHEN 

Chen is the main vocalist of EXO-M, and quite possibly the best vocalist in all of EXO. However, despite his ability to sing, he is one of the most underrated members of EXO. Fans speculate that because he was put into EXO-M with a limited grasp of Mandarin, he wasn’t able to show off his charisma and charm like the other members, hence he was left in the shadows. Chen is one of the nicest members of EXO, which is shown through his interviews and also his interactions with fans, but despite being the friendliest, he’s still one of EXO’s biggest trolls. He likes to joke around and prank his fellow members. He is also EXO’s worst dancer, but he hopes to hone his skills in the future.
