Getting Hot and Sweaty over Hokkien Mee @ Pom Pom Restaurant

Ah.. what can I say about old school hokkien mee. Apart from the fact that it’s really difficult to find a good one these days. You see. It’s not about how black it is. Or how greasy. Or how many prawns it has in it. By a skilled hand and over a blazing wok heat, […]

10 Ways to fill your belly, on a Subang Jaya Food Trail

So every weekend, it’s customary to go find some place new (to us anyway), to go for good food. A foodie trail if you like. And since Subang Jaya is so foreign to me, Cumi decided we would go there, on a food hunt. We found at least 10 tasty dishes we liked, on this […]

Tasting the Hennessy H250 Collector Blend

On a hot, humid day, we were ushered into cool a little French restaurant at Oasis Ara Damansara to taste a special limited edition cognac from the global cognac leader, Hennessy. The jewel of the event was housed in a custom designed swirling metal sculpture resembling an oak cast used to age eau-de-vie. In the […]

Veuve Clicquot Winemaker Lunch @ Brasserie Enfin

Champagne and food pairing. I don’t know why this idea never caught on sooner. The sting of the bubbles, and a versatile palate of vibrant fruity flavours.. one can’t really go wrong if one finds the right degustation menu to go with it, I expect. Which brings us to our lunch with visiting Winemaker from the […]

Cocktails at Hyde @ 53M

Cocktails at Hyde @ 53M it said. But first, I would have to find the place. Again, the GPS is always my trusty companion when in doubt, and I soon found this hidden bar, tucked away in a corner of Uptown PJ. And while cocktails might have a reputation for being less masculine than certain […]

Ramen detour.. to Chuka Cafe

Well, that’s no disputing the ramen fever that has been spreading throughout KL for the past couple of years now. Well, then we turn our attention to a ramen tavern that has been in existence in our city, for at least a decade now, Chuka Cafe. And while the ramen fan base has been rapidly increasing, […]

An afternoon with Dan Buckle & Chandon

If you’ve never heard of the Eight Gourmets Gala (EGG) in Sunway, join the club. Most places in Sunway are foreign to me anyway, and this being a new place and all, doubly so. Anyway, the reason I whipped out the GPS to find this location was to attend a Chandon Lunch as well as Cocktail Masterclass […]

Kogetsu @ Saujana

There’s definitely no shortage of Japanese restaurants in KL, but sometimes, the older establishments, are still the best. Well, in our books anyway. Kogetsu at Saujana Hotel in Subang, is one of those terrific places we totally adore visiting over and over again. Sashimi Moriawase – Deluxe Assorted Raw Fish

Taste Enclave Sunway Pyramid

Taste Enclave – we’ve walked past many times, and never really felt the urge to go in, since we usually prefer food on the streets. There has now been a trend in Malaysia the past few years to put famous local street food brands into comfortable air-conditioned food halls at shopping complexes. Good idea? Yes, […]

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, […]
