Located on the border of Kuala Lumpur and Selangor, Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI) is considered a hidden gem to the locals. The once considered rural neighbourhood has witnessed a vast improvement in infrastructure and amenities, creating a well-connected township for the local residents. As TTDI is within the vicinity and travelling distance to Bandar Utama Damansara, Mutiara Damansara and several suburbs of Petaling Jaya, TTDI is a well-known hotspot for KL and PJ residents alike! Read on to find out the best reasons to live in TTDI.
TTDI FOOD & NIGHTLIFE
One might say that TTDI is the home to many local favourites. TTDI is known for their many still-standing hawker stalls and “kopitiams” that allow locals to experience and indulge in authentic local delights, such as nasi lemak, prawn mee and Ipoh hor fun. Truly the taste of Malaysia. If you happen to be in the area, we suggest making your way down to Restoran Chong Thoong Kee for some delicious hor fun, or to the famous Aunty Manju’s Banana Leaf Restaurant.
One the other hand, one might also argue that the area is also known for many urban, chic restaurants and cafes. TTDI has a seemingly endless list of eateries for you to enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinners and even desserts! For a quick brekkie, head on over to Common Man Fluffy Pancakes where you can enjoy a plate of wholesome pancakes drizzled with salted caramel, berry coulis and crumbled nuts. For lunch, head down to Thursdvys for their Melbourne-inspired menu, cosy interior and amazing coffee. Craving a little spice for dinner? Then Pim’s & the Rama is the place for you for some mouth-watering Thai dishes served in a modern and cosy environment.
SHOPPING & ENTERTAINMENT
As previously mentioned, since TTDI is located within the vicinity of Bandar Utama, Mutiara Damansara and several suburbs of Petaling Jaya, residents of TTDI have easy access to many beloved destinations. You can enjoy your weekends shopping at Malaysia’s largest shopping centre (and 7th largest in the world) – One Utama.
