Grill 582 @ Best Western Premier Dua Sentral

Grill 582 is not the place to study the latest contortions of molecular haute cuisine.

With an open concept kitchen, manned by just two staff, it is a marvel that Chef Siti [...]

Chambers Grill @ KL Hilton

Ah.. I do love my meat. And there is nothing more sexy, than that elusive steakhouse char, or when the grill actually gets it right.

The Glorious Beef Wellington @ Prime, Le Meridien KL

Ever since the weather turned cold and rainy (about as cold as it can be, living in the tropics and all), I’ve had puff pastry on the brain in buttery, flaky profusion. So, how fortunate was I then, that Prime had the same musings, that took shape in the form of a glorious Beef Wellington [...]

Ril’s Bangsar

Ril’s was voted Best for Meat in the Time Out KL Food Awards 2012. So if steaks are their forte, then steaks it would be for dinner on this fine weekend night out.

Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony @ Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel

“I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round, as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them [...]

Sunday Champagne Brunch @ Prego, The Westin KL
