Nero Teca’s Intoxicating Sunday Brunch!

Serious question. Do Italians even eat breakfast? The ones I know, grab a cereal, the obligatory espresso and that’s it. Nope, none I’ve ever met ate a hearty breakfast. Or even brunch for that matter. Let alone a bubbly brunch. Ahh… but one can always pretend, no?

Sek Mei Hong Chili Yong Tau Foo, Jinjang

So, we went towards Jinjang one fine weekend, in search if this Chili Yong Tau Foo dive, we’d heard about. Not just any old chili. We are talking a chili strength that’s one heck of a lot closer to pepper spray pain level. Where the truly wild, world of extreme chilies reign supreme.

Here we go again. It’s mooncake madness, and it’s this time each year, that fans don’t mind ingesting 1,000 calories per piece just because it is the Mid-Autumn Festival. Come the fifteenth day of the eighth month of the lunar calendar, hotels, restaurants and bakeries set up their special mooncake counters just to service the […]

Living the High Tea life, with Marike van Beurden @ KL Hilton

The beautiful thing about high tea’s, are that they really make you feel like you’re living the high life. And in such a gorgeous environment as The Lounge, at KL Hilton, how can you feel anything less than glorious. And if like me, you find yourself preferring to stifle those half-past-noon hunger pangs with some nuts, […]

Of Steamed Fish heads and Wantan Mee – downtown KL

So the first visit to this area in town, brought us to the famous Ring Road restaurant, famed for its fish head noodles. Dissatisfied that we had yet to try the neighbouring coffee shop that was packed with tables of people sucking the life out of fish heads, I told Cumi I really wanted to […]

An afternoon with Cape Mentelle @ Stoked Restaurant

There are few things I like better than good wine, and good food. And usually when it all comes together, along with some fine company, on a sunny Friday afternoon.. well it all, pretty much sets a fine tone for the weekend. Nope, not much to complain about here.

Cedar on 15

Can’t imagine that I’ve been driving past Impiana Hotel all these years, and never stepping foot inside. I mean, I’m pretty familiar with the surrounding area but just never saw a need to visit the place. Luckily enough, a call from Carol, changed all this, and I found myself at Cedar on 15 one balmy […]

Unagi Treats at Iketeru, KL Hilton

For the month of July (till the 31st) let this genteel eel specialist, Executive Chef Ricky Kamiishi, decide what’s best to serve up specially for the unagi promotion at Iketeru – be it Unaijyu-style, grilled and basted with a sweet sauce or Nagoya-style […]

Glenlivet 50 Years Old @ Five Sen5es, The Westin KL

There we were, nicely seated for dinner in Five Sen5es, The Westin KL,  when the Glenlivet 50 years went to the highest bidder, for RM96K! Yes you heard right. And yes, this was the highest price ever paid for a single bottle of single malt whisky in Malaysia. At 8pm sharp on 12 June 2015, a […]
