Torii @ Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights

Although yakitori actually means grilled chicken, served on skewers, these days that time-honored working-class Japanese food is taken beyond its usual place, with all manner of meats, vegetables and other delicacies finding their way on to the grill, on sticks. Which brings us to Torii. Torii on Jalan Batai, Damansara Heights, we read, would be […]

Dining like a Maharani @ Passage Thru India

Here’s something we hear rather often. “I like Indian food, but I don’t eat it enough.” If you’re one of those people, who doesn’t automatically think Indian cuisine when you’re eating out, join the club. But that recently all changed when we chanced to to walk into Passage Thru India several weekends ago, after a […]

Kogetsu @ Saujana

There’s definitely no shortage of Japanese restaurants in KL, but sometimes, the older establishments, are still the best. Well, on 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, […]

The Gastro Project @ Section 17

I’ve had some of my most sumptuous meals out of restaurants, where I least expected to be wow-ed. That’s part of the excitement of expecting nothing, and having your eyes open in amazement at everything. One such place is The Gastro Project. Japanese Salad – Pomegranate, avocado, onions, toasted pine nuts, fava beans

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. […]

Fish Head Noodles @ Ring Road Restaurant, Jalan Gelang KL

Once upon a sunny afternoon, as me and Cumi were walking around the Loke Yew area, we noticed this place which was packed with folks, all eating one thing. Fish head. The fish looked huge and fresh and the sauces looked amazingly varied. Steaming hot and reeking of a fishy freshness, we found ourselves drawn […]
