That’s right folks, its famed Sunday bubbly brunch starting on 30 November 2014, between 11.30am to 2.30pm, is back with a vengeance.. and we went to check it […]

Cocktails at SIX , Telawi Bangsar

Living in a period where mixologists are a dime a dozen, creating drinks that thrill even the cocktail illuminati can be a gargantuan task. However, Imran does precisely that and more, at SIX on Telawi, a cozy bar on the 1st floor that currently attracts both locals and booze geeks alike. Less sweet yet extravagant […]

Underground dining with Chyuan’s Tiffin Supper Club

Secret Supper Club, Underground dining, Private Kitchen.. words that have connotations of elitism and non-mainstream dining. “intimate group”, “by invitation only”, “anti-restaurant”.. adjectives that describe this phenomenon. Of course these days, the supper clubs are a big business of their own. Chefs get to serve what they think is appropriate and while the prices aren’t cheap, […]

Popo Steamboat Cafe @ Kepong

Broth is the essence of any good steamboat. That and the Chili sauce.. Uncle Tony mutters. I am inclined to agree. And if broth is the essence, then thick, sweet and peppery pig intestine soup has got to be the pièce de résistance at Popo Steamboat.

A Gonzalez Byass Wine Dinner @ Grand Hyatt KL

Up till this point, I had never heard this word spoken as often as I did this past week, Bodegas. And when you talk about Bodegas, you talk about Sherry. Bodegas are actually storage houses where sherry is aged and matured. And up till today, I only knew of one sort of Sherry. The sweet […]

Grand Harbour Restaurant’s Private Kitchen @ Fahrenheit 88

One of the restaurants I keep walking past, on Bukit Bintang is Grand Harbour restaurant. Located on the corner of Fahrenheit 88, this place is best known for its Cantonese food. And normally since it is the shopping that brings me to Bukit Bintang, I rarely have enough time left over for a quick dinner, let […]

M.A.D. @ PV128, Setapak

M.A.D. Not a name you might easily forget. And these 3 buddies have it spot on, in terms of design. For the restaurant, the inspiration is bohemian and minimalistic New York, the plating is modern and the food is Asian inspired. But looks aside, would the food pass the test..? MAD is located in PV 128, in […]

The Allegrini Wine Dinner at Villa Danieli

We were back at Villa Danieli last week for an Allegrini wine dinner. The best of North Italy is embodied in the wines of Allegrini, so I am told. The family-run estate that have been working the vineyards since the 16th century and are famed for being Amarone producers. The showcased wines Palazzo della Torre, La Grola and La […]

Remy Martin ‘The Heart of Cognac Experience’

One place I’ve really wanted to visit, but never got the opportunity to, is the Cognac Region, in France. Most Cognac houses have a special cellar where they keep their oldest and best vintages. If you’re lucky enough to visit one of these spaces, don’t expect much polish. They tend to packed with ancient barrels, […]

Bahia’s capital is the oldest city in Brazil, and during the early colonial period it served as the capital of the entire country. Situated on the All Saints Bay, this was where Africa met South America, on the northeastern state of Bahia. Salvador, Bahia’s centerpiece, was the arrival point for slaves brought to work the sugar […]
