“An Evening of Indulgence” – the Launch of Double Gold

What an unexpected surprise and honor to have been flown in specifically for the grand launch of Double Gold, in Yangon Myanmar! In less than 12 hours boarding the plane, we found ourselves at the swanky downtown bar in Yangon, called Union Bar. The entire place was gleaming in Gold.. rather apt we thought for […]

Sunday Brunch @ Rendez-Vous

Brunch is something I look forward to on weekends, like how a devout Catholic looks forward to Sunday Mass. I mean, saying I like brunch a whole lot, would be an understatement. And did you know that in many cities around the globe, brunch is a bit of an institution? Yup. Weekends are precious and […]

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.

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.

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, […]

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, […]
