De Hunan Hotpot @ Fahrenheit 88

Hunan cuisine is one of our favorites, when we are looking for a good chili fix. Noted for pungency, thanks to its generous yet judicious use of spices, we love its employment of fermented chilies that while tasty, does not leave you numb like, the malat. Hunan Hot Spicy Song Yee Tow/ Steamed Fish head […]

Heavenly Hunan Cuisine @ Chynna Hilton KL with Guest Chef Wang

Ah.. the spice loving Hunan race. Wasn’t it Chairman Mao who said,  “You can’t be a revolutionary if you don’t eat chilies.” Yes, indeed, the great man, Mao Zedong himself was Hunan, which probably explained his fiery spirit. And now, Hunan’s fervid dishes, come to KL.

HoChiak Steamboat @ Kuchai Lama

I don’t know about you, but I find few things more gratifying than an intense sweat festival over a giant hot pot of Malat .. i.e. Sichuan Hot Peppers. It is through numbing pain, that one can truly give thanks for the food. Oh yes indeed.. Sichuan malat is not for the faint hearted.  It can […]

A Guinness affair @ Grand Imperial, BSC

As with the start to most years, I hardly know what Chinese zodiac it is, until I get an invite to the next big event. And so, just last week, I found out that we’d just entered the year of the Goat, by way of an invitation from Guinness, to attend a massive Chinese banquet, at […]

Popo Steamboat Cafe @ Kepong

Broth is the essence of any good steamboat. That and the Chili sauce.. Uncle Tony mutters. I am inclined to agree. And if broth is the essence, then thick, sweet and peppery pig intestine soup has got to be the pièce de résistance at Popo Steamboat.

Grand Harbour Restaurant’s Private Kitchen @ Fahrenheit 88

One of the restaurants I keep walking past, on Bukit Bintang is Grand Harbour restaurant. Located on the corner of Fahrenheit 88, this place is best known for its Cantonese food. And normally since it is the shopping that brings me to Bukit Bintang, I rarely have enough time left over for a quick dinner, let […]

Is Tim Ho Wan worth queuing for?

First day of business at Tim Ho Wan

I know for a fact, that the good people of the Republic, i.e. Singapore love to queue. Good food, queue. Bad food, also queue. But Malaysians on the other hand, are probably a less tolerant bunch where queuing is concerned. Or at least that’s what I thought. I myself find it a pain in the ass, […]

Premium Dimsum at Chynna

In a city where eating steaming hot bao, siu mai or shrimp dumplings early in the day is as much of a way of life as having a hot cup of coffee in the morning, I think I’ve seen it all, where dimsum is concerned.  Gold Roll Stuffed with Lobster & Black Truffle, and Deep fried Beancurd […]

Elegantly satiated at Elegant Inn

Dining at Elegant is such a fine affair. Foie gras, Matsutake Mushroom, fish roe on egg custard, served with a Crunchy Sesame Prawn roll And I always feel spoilt rotten when I am dining here as Jeanette’s guest. She really sets the bar high, when it comes to fine-dining Hong Kong Chinese style.

Dimsum @ Shang Palace KL

I am sure many will agree with me that Shang Palace, does some terrific dimsum, in the heart of KL.  Where else can you find fifty over varieties of dimsum on the menu under one roof. Freshness is of top importance and dimsum Chef Low Kien Fatt is in the kitchen making them every morning at […]

Teochew Fine Dining at Pak Loh Chiu Chow

Famous for its Teochew (Chiu Chow) cuisine, Pak Loh Chiu Chow located at Feast Village in Starhill Gallery has been around for more than a decade. The food however, is still exquisite and this latest promotion that spans only two short months (Jun-Jul), is definitely amazing value for money, because the ingredients are just so […]
