Chambers Grill at KL Hilton has an innovative grill menu of prime aged meat cuts or fresh seafood served [...]

Love is in the Air… at La Scala

It’s always nice to have a reason to visit La Scala. Being a new place and all, you still get to see finishing touches added, each time you visit. Take for example, the latest addition – a lovely, breezy balcony area, complete with italian tiles, tall columns of hand-painted gold grapevines and potted grape plants [...]

A Taste of Kansai, at Kampachi, Pavilion KL

We were recently invited to Kampachi Pavilion KL, to check out the “All Kansai” festival and food promotion that will be going on from the 15th – 23rd of February 2014. And the most interesting thing I learned over this meal is that Sushi exists under many forms and guises. It is not all nigiri [...]

La Scala, Jalan Mayang KL

Named after Milan’s famed opera house, La Scala is every inch as grand and impressive as that iconic building in Italy. And the location should be no stranger to most KL-lites, as La Scala is situated where the old Il Lido used to be, right along Jalan Mayang, off Yap Kwan Seng in KL. Stepping [...]

An Incredibly Sweet Chinese New Year at Gu Yue Tien

Chef Frankie Woo’s food is always a delight to eat. And this chef never ceases to amaze me with his knack for coming up with exciting and innovative dishes for Gu Yue Tien. Not only that, the latest trick pulled from this magician’s sleeve was a couple of red, round, magic berries. It might sounds [...]

Dinner with Chef Malcolm Goh @ Samplings on the 14th

It was hard to resists the invite that asked if we wanted to attend a dinner at Samplings on the 14th, hosted by Chef Malcolm Goh. Would you say no to a celebrity chef, made famous by the AFC production called, Great Dinners of the World? I think not. And not to be fooled by [...]

A lofty Valentine’s , @ Marini’s on 57

As the 14th of February approaches, you’re stuck wondering where you’re going to make some of the most remarkable memories this year. And these days, urban rooftops are seeing a heyday of sorts – from rooftop bars to trendy hotels, no amenity is as sweet as a pool, bar, or restaurant on high. So it [...]

Chinese New Year with a Romantic Twist @ Makan Kitchen, DoubleTree KL

There may be only one true love, for each one of us, but there is no one true way to do dinner on Valentine’s Day. And if Valentine’s Day falls on the fifteenth Day of Chinese New Year (Chap Go Mei), well then, what we have is a double celebration. And at DoubleTree by Hilton [...]

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 [...]

Living Food Bistro-Café

Living Food Bistro-Café in Kuala Lumpur is the sort of cafe that we should have more of in town. I mean, it’s really hard to find folks who share your enthusiasm about achieving high energy health and vitality by incorporating whole, raw and living foods into their lives. Not only that, these sort of high [...]
