Char Siew Fix at Spring Golden Restaurant, Shah Alam

BBQ pork or Char Siew is a famous street-side, Chinese hawker dish that everyone loves. But what makes a great plate for Char Siew? Is it the perfect fat to lean ratio of meat? Is it the skewers of pork meat marinated in a secret, homemade honey hoisin sauce, then roasted till it resembles charred, […]

Tis the Season to be Feasting … Christmas 2013 @ Mezze !

Sing Wah Coffee Shop @ Jalan Gasing

During the wet, wet, rainy season, nothing hits the spot like a hot pot of Bak Kut Teh.

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 […]
