Didn’t know this restaurant exist until my sister tell me about it. Cravings locate at corner side of end road, not as obviously seen as Padi House and PapaRich from the main road.
We went there for lunch on Valentine day, they have bit of related decoration and special design valentine dinner.
We were greet with a bottle of water, much appreciate in such a hot weather day, and great thing is, it is FOC.
They got different kind of special offer for everyday, we went on Saturday which is 20% off for salad and soup. Look at the menu above, at bottom left with Vegetarian food sign, which means those meals with the symbol are suitable for vegetarian.
We ordered all vegetarian dishes, Mario M Burger set (Grilled whole juicy portabello mushroom, stuffed with caramelised onions and oyster mushrooms with mushroom ketchup spread)
Pasta Linguine with Wild Mushroom (Sauteed wild mushrooms and linguine, tossed well with a dollop of homemade creme fraiche with shaved parmesan)
Summer Minestrone (A colourful and refreshing soup with tortiglioni and fresh vegetables that are in season)
*Update 05/03/2015: gf ordered a gratin, very delicious and worth a try. Wild Mushroom Bakked Penne, Baked Penne with mushroom cream sauce and 3 cheese blend.
Unlike some restaurants try to insert with hidden cost, Cravings doing differently by giving more offers. As picture above, the Lemon tea comes together with lunch meals without charge, there are already 3 offers from the start till now.
I give a rating of 7.5/10, with their menu design that ease vegetarian and generous portion of foods that can satisfied young teenagers that study in college/highschool nearby. For improvement, acoustic of the restaurant can be better, reflection of sound happens because of glass elements on surrounding.

After refer on other house with similar installation, we too decide to install tempered glass roof to extend, reduce heat and cover car from rain.
The installation took 2 days, first day was to fit bone supports in right place without the glass.
Two days after, tempered glass was installed. The glass is strong enough to support weight of a person.
Black glue foam was applied between glasses to avoid leaking, so far (two months) there are no water leaks while heavy rain.
Pretty satisfied with the installation, one thing to note is water marks will be there after rain, especially after sun-shower. The total cost is RM 7k+, took almost 3 week time to get everything done from dealing to installation complete.
This is one of the most discussed home stay on recently. The place locate at Jeram, somewhere between Klang and Kuala Selangor, takes within 2 hours to reach if you are not lost.
IT was built with double decked office cabins that often seen in construction site. With an extra top roof covered and air conditioner installed in each room, there are no worry for the heat.
As soon as we arrive and settled our room, the owner inform us to gather for an outdoor walk. One of the activity provided is a tour into mangrove and observe its unique ecosystem.
The small crab is changing shell from one to another.
Tiny colourful crab with imbalance size of arms, a large left chela and a small right chela.
Rising tide happened on noon and the sea water flew in massive root of mangrove plants.
Next activity, 15 minutes cycling of village road to the beach nearby.
Scenery here is stunning, too bad didn’t bring tripod and wide angle camera lens.
Right after cycled back from the beach, we were told to get ready for a boat ride to observe on birds that stay at mangrove area.
Local fisherman caught on big Jellyfish, told by father of homestay, these will not be sold in Malaysia market, it will be export to countries such as Japan and Korea.
Lots of this species can seen around mangrove especially on the river side.
White Mangrove Crane
saw at least 4 eagles are flying around
After these 3 continuous activities, we are pretty exhausted and hungry.
These are the supper we ordered because of dinner portion are not enough for big eaters like us.
One thing to take note, make sure the your booking days does not intersect with another big group, else owners will squeeze two days programs into one, and turn the suppose leisure become a tiring day.
Unfortunately, second day of our weekend trip was joint by big group of local primary school students. Then, it was very obvious that owners are busy for preparation since Saturday and we were kinda left aside especially on the next day.
Breakfast on 8:30am is too late for Early birds like us, so we cycled to entrance road of home stay (that connect to main road, with Kampong Sungai Janggut signboard), there is a malay store offer plenty choices of breakfast, such as fried rice noodles, kuih and roti-canai.
There are nothing much to do on second day since we done all of it on day one. Cycled to the beach again and left a signature on the cabin before we left.
No doubt this is a relaxing place, imho, it is more suitable for family with kids. There are no TV, karaoke system or urban entertainment here, just a quiet peaceful night you will have, suggest on bring cards or board game to spend spare times. Details of home stay as below:
Vegetarian Steamboat! Yes, one of the rare vegetarian restaurant that provide proper steambot experience, thanks to the owner bringing it into Mahkota Cheras. There is another sister shop with same name locate nearby that provide a la carte, check on photo above and address below to ensure you found the correct one.
Consider myself a regular customer of the restaurant since my parents and partner love to dine in here.
There are four choices of steamboat soup: miso, tomyam, herbal and clear soup (清汤).
My favourite dish, Chinese Toon Fried Rice, though there are peoples that don’t like the taste. I highly recommend it, as according to the owner, the chinese toon is fresh since it planted locally.
Ordered few side dishes, includes Rojak, fried Yong Taufu and Vietnamese Spring Rolls.
Total cost of RM 74.20 for the our lunch meal, RM 19.90 for a set of Steamboat. We ordered too much, which actually overwhelm for 4 person. I give a rating of 8.2/10, for plenty of parking space, quiet relaxing environment and friendly staffs. Restaurant information as below,
