Taste Enclave Sunway Pyramid

Taste Enclave – we’ve walked past many times, and never really felt the urge to go in, since we usually prefer food on the streets. There has now been a trend in Malaysia the past few years to put famous local street food brands into comfortable air-conditioned food halls at shopping complexes. Good idea? Yes, […]

Fuji Onsenji Yumedono Ryokan & Mt Fuji

From Nagoya, we realised that there was no direct train to Mt. Fuji, for obvious reasons. Climbing up the mountain side would require a bus.

Han Woo Ri, Korean BBQ @ PJ Uptown

The four Bs of Korean dining.. booze, bibimbap, barbecue, and banchan. Unfortunately only one of these is bottomless – ie. endlessly refillable. But it doesn’t matter, because the food here at Han Woo Ri is soooo good, you’ll have enough great dishes to keep you occupied for an entire afternoon. Tons of delectable Side dishes, […]

The Gastro Project @ Section 17

I’ve had some of my most sumptuous meals out of restaurants, where I least expected to be wow-ed. That’s part of the excitement of expecting nothing, and having your eyes open in amazement at everything. One such place is The Gastro Project. Japanese Salad – Pomegranate, avocado, onions, toasted pine nuts, fava beans
