Aladdin Restaurant in Kelana Jaya extremely food-blogger-unfriendly
After doing a Google search on Chinese Muslim restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya, I dredged out several names. Aladdin Restaurant in Kelana Jaya simply beats the others in terms of being food-blogger-unfriendly because photography of the food is disallowed. Several complaints were found in these links:
There was also an allegation that the owner of the restaurant took out a camera and took snapshots of a blogger taking pictures of the food. For what purpose, I wonder? A tacit threat to take legal action? What a big, fat joke. So... food bloggers, please be fore-warned.
On a recent visit to Aladdin, I noticed the supervisor walking around like a Little Napoleon, with a stuck-up look on her face, her hair tied up in a pony tail. My impartial comment: the Nescafe served to me was too sweet; the vegetable fried rice was only so-so. The damage was RM16.15. (Table 12. Bill No. 00048712).
