The Lady at the Market

It’s like any other day at work. Only thing is instead of an air conditioned room, a desk and a computer, you are surrounded by stalls, rows of stalls selling vegetables, fruits, fish , chicken and meat. No wonder the place smells. Every morning this long and windy road fills up with stalls, starting from […]

Earth Hour with Red FM

In conjunction with Earth Hour and Saint Patrick’s Day, Red FM was throwing a party. A big party. Earth Hour actually falls on the 27th of March 2010, but Red FM decided to hold it, two weeks earlier. Red FM’s Love Classifieds hosted an event themed, “Go Green” at Neo Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur on […]

Nasi Lemak Daun Pisang @ Robson Heights, KL

Nasi Lemak is to Malaysians, what the English fry-up is to the British. But whilst the full English breakfast has streaky bacon, eggs, fried or grilled tomatoes, fried mushrooms, fried bread or toast and sausages, the Malaysian nasi lemak has hot spicy sauce (sambal),  hard boiled egg, cucumber slices, small dried anchovies (ikan bilis) and […]

Albion @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

It was around the middle of last year, that I read about a poll at the British  food awards, where the UK won the coveted (not!) title of “Worst National Cuisine” by a landslide. British food sucks/taste bad/has no class .. are all truisms that even the Brits buy into. I remember my hall-mates deriving […]

Tykoh Inagiku @ Menara Kek Seng KL

One of the main things I like about Japanese food, is the emphasis on eating things at their “shun” , or “in-season”. When I walk into a good authentic restaurant I like to ask them, what is “in season” at the moment and just leave the ordering to them. Now a days, when we are […]

Montana Wine Dinner @ Teeq Brasserie, Lot 10 KL

Pernod Ricard Malaysia recently invited us, Cumi & Ciki (via Marian Eu) to an exciting night out of wine and dine, specifically featuring the delightful food at Teeq and the fantastic wines of Montana. Montana, the makers of Brancott wines, planted the first modern day vineyards in Marlborough and created New Zealand’s first varietal wine […]

Mr. Chiam’s Goreng Pisang Stall @ Brickfields

Cumi & Ciki love Brickfields for many reasons, the main ones being, Peter’s Pork Mee, the Gulab Jamun Man , the famous Vishal Banana Leaf and finally Mr Chiam’s Pisang Goreng Stall. Oh, and the blind massage.. we must not forget the blind massage, but you get the general idea. We like Brickfields for innumerable […]

The Hummingbird @ The Daily Grind, Bangsar Village I

Whichever angle you look at it.. this is a handsome cake. Some say this southern layer cake earned its name because each tantalizing bite makes you hum with delight. Another theory is that it’s as sweet as the sugared water used to attract its hovering namesake.. the Hummingbird.. have you had your fix? Add: The […]

Organic vs. Non-organic foods

You’re standing in front of the produce section of your local supermarket and reading the labels intently. In one hand you are holding a conventionally grown carrot. In the other, there’s one that is labeled ‘organically grown’. Both carrots look healthy, a deep orange and both provide fiber, vitamins and minerals. Now picture me at […]

Restaurant Pan Heong @ Batu Caves, KL

You know, just the other day, I met a couple who were passing through Malaysia en route Vietnam for  their annual vacation. They had never seen lime stone hills before. Wow, just imagine that, traveling for more than 20 hours just to get to Halong Bay. This is the UNESCO World Heritage site located in […]

Ichiban Boshi @ Sunway Giza, Kota Damansara

I know I might sound repetitive in my old age, but I need to say again just how much I missed certain foods whilst I was away in Java and how eating certain foods in Java , have re-sparked an interest in my eating habits, in areas that I have long neglected. I am of […]
