MIGF 2014 at Signature @ The Roof

To thrive in today’s fickle culinary landscape, restaurants are adapting at dizzying speed and the more unique or exciting a menu, the better. And one would hope to be assailed by extravagantly conceived menus paired with amazing wines, especially during this Malaysian International Gourmet Festival (MIGF) season. The city’s high-minded culinary circle would expect no less. […]

Hwan by Chakri

Hwan means ‘sweet’ in Thai. But whilst some Thai desserts might tend toward the decorative, the sticky, and the cloyingly sweet, Hwan, is more of a no frills kind of dessert joint, and the desserts thankfully are not overly sweet. tab tim grob

Oktoberfest @ The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

October is definitely one of the months I look forward to, simply because it is a beer guzzling month! Oktoberfest was in full swing at the RP Entertainment Centre (The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur) yet again this year with even more traditional German music, bratwurst and steins of beer. This was a rocking Carlsberg event, […]

Austrian Wine & Dine, with Chef Gottfried Prantl

The amazingly versatile wines of Austria must have long been a secret that they guard jealously, or that only wine connoisseurs know about. Because up till now, I surely did not know too much myself. And I am so glad, that I finally experienced them in all their glory.  I can see now, why their […]

Nasi Beriani Gam Putrajaya

Someone asked me, what on earth is Beriani Gam? How is it different from the regular Beriani (Briyani) rice? Is it really gum that they use, or what? Which got me pondering, and I had to do a little sniffing around to find out. And one thing is for sure, you will definitely need your […]

A Pot full of Prosperity … at Di Wei, Empire Subang

Apart from tossing the Yee Sang, another great dish I always look forward to during Chinese Near Year is the Poon Choy. This lovely pot of prosperity is special in that it is composed of many layers of different ingredients. It is also eaten layer by layer instead of “stirring everything up”, but if you […]

Going Balls Deep @ Yang Kee Beef Ball Noodle

We recently went balls deep with Mr. Siew from Yang Kee Seapark’s popular beef ball noodle. The somewhat shy owner of the stall had invited us months back to watch him make beef meatballs which he does by hand. It wasn’t until he invited us to observe his artisanal skills that it occurred in our […]

The Fiery BBQ Buffet @ Empire Subang

BBQ buffets, in case you haven’t noticed, or endured the endless lines of people, especially during the holiday season, are big and hot. It’s also apt to start a fight, especially when folks hog the stations where all the good meat resides. But then again, without such a heated atmosphere, would the out-door BBQ be […]

Starting the New Year right… at New Formosa

The first time I fell in love with the food at New Formosa, has got to be the first time I ate their Three Cup Chicken. You see, three cup chicken is a classic Taiwanese dish, one which I only learned to appreciate, when I visited New Formosa a couple of years back and tried […]
