Dong Bei Chinese Noodles @ Pudu, KL

The food they serve at Dong Bei is authentically Chinese. Unfortunately this pioneering Chinese restaurant has seen better days. Even at 8 p.m. the business is rather slow. This restaurant is situated along that famous stretch of restaurants that serve Teochew Moi (Teochew Porridge) and Chinese desserts in Pudu. Dong Bei translated means Northern East, […]

Italian Cone Pizza @ Kota Damansara

This is what you get , when you eat this.. ..in reverse.  A leaky back-side! Be careful not to scald your tongue because the cheese is runny and piping hot.. and the tomato base is just as runny. I like the fact that the cone is oozing tomato and cheese. I do not like as […]

Meatworks @ Solaris Mt Kiara (Soho KL)

We’d been eyeing the place for a while. What goes on in that corner shop lot, whose name declares the promise of a full steak dinner and all that bleeds in good old fashioned, grilled red meat. Milk Feb lamb – RM39.00 Apparently here at Meatworks, the menu is created for that precise purpose. To […]

Peng Heong Hakka Paikut Restaurant @ Klang

I have many Hakka friends at work who are picky about the food they eat, and tend to have extremely discerning palates. This is because when it comes to the science and the lore of the kitchen, as well as producing great food, the Hakka are definitely pioneers in that department. They are the Han […]

Curry laksa loosely defined would be a coconut curry soup with noodles, whilst the assam laksa is a sourish fish soup with noodles. Last week, we happened to try out these two distinctly different laksa’s […]

El Meson @ Telawi, Bangsar

At which restaurant can you eat and eat until you are so stuffed you need to stand against the wall for support? El Meson of course. Iberico overload at lunch is really the reason we look so plethoric! The number of Spanish restaurants in Kuala Lumpur has increased substantially over the past 5 years.. Spanish […]

Bangkok Tom Yam @ Old Town PJ

I have asked many of my foreigner friends who have ever visited Thailand, what their favourite Thai food is. Without a doubt and almost without exception rings back the answer “Tom Yam Gung”. If I ask my Malaysian friends what their favourite Thai food is in Thailand, it’s normally a mixed reply of  “Tom Yam, […]

Reggae Bar, Bar Italia @ Changkat Bukit Bintang, KL

PRG – RM16.00 This is the Pink Reggae Girl.. and we are at the Reggae bar! The Rasta Wagyu Beef 100gm – RM80.00 The Wagyu here whilst reasonably price for its weight of 100mg, was overcooked. Oh , what a shame that we could not fully appreciate the soft succulent fatty marbling and pink, medium-rare […]
