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 […]

M.A.D. @ PV128, Setapak

M.A.D. Not a name you might easily forget.
