Barone Ricasoli Wine Dinner @ Senja

We recently had the pleasure of meeting Baron Francesco Ricasoli, who was hosting a Brolio wine dinner at Senja, Italian restaurant at Saujana Hotel here in KL. Francesco (top left) a lovely man, with a keen eye for photography.. he has the most amazing instagram account! The Barone Ricasoli Wine Estate is the oldest winery in […]

Han Woo Ri, Korean BBQ @ PJ Uptown

The four Bs of Korean dining.. booze, bibimbap, barbecue, and banchan. Unfortunately only one of these is bottomless – ie. endlessly refillable. But it doesn’t matter, because the food here at Han Woo Ri is soooo good, you’ll have enough great dishes to keep you occupied for an entire afternoon. Tons of delectable Side dishes, […]

Burgundy Wine dinner at Rendez-Vous

It kind of surprises me, that Rendez-Vous, a traditional French restaurant located just a cross the road from Telawi Bangsar, has eluded me thus far. Owners, chef Florian Nigen and Arnaud Chappert maintain the tradition of a hearty French cuisine, often matched only by a superb wine list, affable service and a leisurely mood. And because […]

Just Pie.. Beauty that is more than Crust Deep

When it comes to pies and sinking my teeth into the perfect pastry, I don’t really care for pretty. Afterall, beauty is more than crust deep, and sinking your incisors into buttery, flaky puff pastry only to hit a lava core of oozy savory mushrooms or stringy cheese, well, that’s getting to the heart of the matter. […]

Tantalizing Tuaran Noodles @ Ah Soon Kor

Cumi just stumbled upon this fabulous place for that Sabah favorite, Tuaran mee, and this weekend he promptly had me in tow, to check out the place. Named after two partners, Ah Soon Kor is located in SS3 and serves a delightful mix of Sabah noodles, local chinese daichow dishes, specialties from Rawang (steamed fish) and […]

Slurp Worthy Ramen @ New Yew Sang Restoran

It’s hard to hate a huge bowl of steaming hot, salty, meaty broth with tender, slow-cooked slices of charsiew (BBQ pork) that sits like a crown, on top of a pile of bouncy ramen noodles. But there’s a difference between ramen you eat for a quick fix, and ramen that’s so good, you want to eat it a […]

A French Affair for One Night only @ The Restaurant, Saujana

One of the most versatile chefs I know is Austrian Head Chef at Saujana, Chef Alexander Waschl. Beneath his tall chef hat and distinct Austrian accent is a humble yet talented man, who brings an amazing Austrian flare to the table, each and every time he cooks for us. And people actually forget that the Austrians had […]

Awesome Thosai & Biryani @ Asian Rice Pot, SS5 !

If you’re a thosai addict like I am, then you need to check out Asian Rice Pot. This place does the most awesome Ghee Thosai on earth. It’s so crispy, yet soft and flavourful, I would go so far as to say, one of the best in PJ for just RM2.50.

Pulled Pan Mee @ Restoran Hong Joo, PJ Old Town

Pan Mee.. Ah yes.. I am a huge fan of the Pan Mee. There’s nothing fancy or glam about this dish. When it’s torn with uneven edges, it is called Mee Hoon Kueh. The uneven shapes might even come across as rather crass and unpolished, but take one bite out of this comfort food, and […]

Garden to Table Private Dining in Section 14 PJ

Eating clean seems to be  the buzz word these days. It is a concept that stresses healthy, whole, unprocessed, organic type of eating. And, although the phrase is relatively new, the principles are not.   There’s a ridiculous amount of information out there these days, and it can be tough sorting out truth from fallacy.. […]

Chef Li’s Penang Hokkien Mee @ Taman Megah

While we KL folk call it Prawn Mee, the Penangites call it Hokkien Mee. Hokkien mee to us locals is the black colored thick noodles, stir-fried with pork lard, steeped in dark soy sauce, finished off with prawns, pork and serve with chili lime paste. So make no mistake, this is indeed the Penang version […]
