Mark’s Assam Laksa @ 1 Utama, Bandar Utama

The two types of ‘laksa’ that Malaysians cannot live without are most probably the curry laksa and the assam laksa. Curry laksa loosely defined would be a coconut curry soup with noodles, whilst the assam laksa is a sourish fish soup with noodles. Last week, we happened to try out these two distinctly different laksa’s […]

El Meson @ Telawi, Bangsar

At which restaurant can you eat and eat until you are so stuffed you need to stand against the wall for support? El Meson of course. Iberico overload at lunch is really the reason we look so plethoric! The number of Spanish restaurants in Kuala Lumpur has increased substantially over the past 5 years.. Spanish […]

Bangkok Tom Yam @ Old Town PJ

I have asked many of my foreigner friends who have ever visited Thailand, what their favourite Thai food is. Without a doubt and almost without exception rings back the answer “Tom Yam Gung”. If I ask my Malaysian friends what their favourite Thai food is in Thailand, it’s normally a mixed reply of  “Tom Yam, […]

Reggae Bar, Bar Italia @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

PRG – RM16.00 This is the Pink Reggae Girl.. and we are at the Reggae bar! The Rasta Wagyu Beef 100gm – RM80.00 The Wagyu here whilst reasonably price for its weight of 100mg, was overcooked.

Waiting @ Pusat Penjaja Jalan Air Panas, Setapak

She sits in anticipation of something she knows will be worth the wait. She has been here many times and has sat in this very stool under this same zinc roof top on different occasions. She knows she’s good at waiting. She has waited 10 minutes before but she has also waited half an hour […]

Havana @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

When I heard from Sean of EatdrinkKL that they served Alligator meat at Havana, I wasted no time dragging Paranoid Android (PA) to the joint. Seeing as rich man PA lives just a stone’s throw from this upmarket part of town, I knew he would have no qualms joining me for lunch. “Say ah… !” […]

The Whampoa Club, Shanghai

My latest exciting gastronomic experience was in Shanghai recently, where I had the pleasure of dining at The Whampoa Club. This restaurant  is an opulent setting for Jereme Leung’s modern interpretations of traditional Shanghainese cuisine. Contemporary Chinese or Chinese Fusion are the other names that this type of cuisine, goes by. Three on the Bund […]
