Eden restaurants was one of most popular dining locations in Kuala Lumpur and Penang back in the 80’s. We liked it for its good mix of halal western and local cuisines, and it was the kind of place where one would go to celebrate a momentous occasion. I remember one of the popular branches being located where […]

Veuve Clicquot Winemaker Lunch @ Brasserie Enfin

Champagne and food pairing. I don’t know why this idea never caught on sooner. The sting of the bubbles, and a versatile palate of vibrant fruity flavours.. one can’t really go wrong if one finds the right degustation menu to go with it, I expect. Which brings us to our lunch with visiting Winemaker from the […]

Anyway, the reason I whipped out the GPS to find this location was to attend a Chandon Lunch as well as Cocktail Masterclass […]
