Iketeru @ KL Hilton

To many connoisseurs of great Japanese food, sashimi worship has become a religion. And one of the cornerstones of this faith is the unshakable believe in the fact that the fish is extraordinarily fresh. It doesn’t matter what lengths the place goes through to get the sashimi, but diners trust that the chefs will deliver […]

The Fiery BBQ Buffet @ Empire Subang

BBQ buffets, in case you haven’t noticed, or endured the endless lines of people, especially during the holiday season, are big and hot. It’s also apt to start a fight, especially when folks hog the stations where all the good meat resides. But then again, without such a heated atmosphere, would the out-door BBQ be […]

King Beef and the Kingdom of Best Bean @ Pudu

Sometimes, fate brings you to a place, different from the intended. We have our regular haunts in Pudu, places where we eat pretty frequently.

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, […]
