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 […]

Rama V’s New Mouthwatering Thai Menu

Although Thai restaurants in KL are a dime a dozen, and some of the menus I’ve browsed seem a tad boring and homogeneous, some restaurants constantly evolve and improve on their cuisine. Which is why there’s a good chance you won’t recognize much of the fare at Rama V. This somewhat low-key, casual, comfortable, yet […]

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 […]

Norwegian Seafood Promo at The Intercontinental KL

All you fans of salmon and all Norwegian crustaceans, there’s an interesting promo coming your way.

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 […]

Cave dining with Dom Pérignon Second Plénitude (P2-1998)

Just a few days from our return from Japan, Moet Hennessy Diageo whisked us away to a mystery location for the revealing of Dom Pérignon Second Plénitude (P2-1998), the Second Plenitude of the premiere champagne maker. As we embarked on the highway in heavily tinted black Alphards, the guests took turns guessing the destination. None […]

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 […]

Chinese Nasi Lemak Section 17

Nasi lemak, the de facto national dish of Malaysia. Yet, you would agree with me, when I say that there are so many version of it – the mind boggles. Here’s one popular version,  here’s another and another. But probably one of the less known ones would be a Chinese style Nasi Lemak, located in Section 17 […]
