Chambers Grill @ KL Hilton

Ah.. I do love my meat. And there is nothing more sexy, than that elusive steakhouse char, or when the grill actually gets it right. Well, it’s not rocket science – steak that’s dipped in a combination of butter and oil, coated with a generous layer of himalayan salt and cracked black pepper, and seared [...]

Pudu Chinese Indian Rice @ Restoran Sin Hiap Kee

One of the places we love to visit in Pudu, for some carbo loading, is this place we call, the “Pudu Chinese Indian Rice”. Run by a friendly Chinese lady, you would mistake this place for authentic indian rice, except that the cook is Chinese. Cumi, in his youth, before his intolerance to caffeine developed, [...]

Dim Sum Overdrive at Tai Zi Heen, Prince Hotel KL

Once upon a time, dim sum restaurant sessions were all about tea appreciation, and the snacks were a by-the-way supplement, to complement the tea. Now a days, these tiny baskets of delicate dumplings and fluffy boas are the main reason for restaurants being packed to over-flowing and waiters scurrying around to meet the demand. And [...]

La Cucina @ Pullman Bangsar

Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar is the latest hotel to spring up in this happening neighborhood, and with it comes the eclectic Italian and Mediterranean restaurant called La Cucina. Walking into the restaurant, it feels more like you’ve stepped into somebody’s kitchen, rather than a hotel’s F&B outlet. The inspiration behind La Cucina comes from the [...]

All You Can Eat Dinner @ Tai Zi Heen , Prince Hotel

I’m very cautious of buffets when it comes to ALL YOU CAN EAT dinners. I’ve had some pretty good ones and some pretty lousy ones. And Cantonese dinner buffets of this style seem to give me the same high as someone who has just carbo, fat and protein loaded, about to bungee jump off a [...]
