Back to Le Midi @ BSC

Le Midi might not be the newest restaurant in Bangsar Shopping Center (and I remember back in the day, when we used to visit this place in 2010) but it certainly still has an exciting and surprisingly accomplished menu. unusual deco – the Nautilus greets patrons to Le Midi The establishment’s best dish, to my […]

Love is in the Air… at La Scala

It’s always nice to have a reason to visit La Scala. Being a new place and all, you still get to see finishing touches added, each time you visit. Take for example, the latest addition – a lovely, breezy balcony area, complete with italian tiles, tall columns of hand-painted gold grapevines and potted grape plants […]

A lofty Valentine’s , @ Marini’s on 57

As the 14th of February approaches, you’re stuck wondering where you’re going to make some of the most remarkable memories this year. And these days, urban rooftops are seeing a heyday of sorts – from rooftop bars to trendy hotels, no amenity is as sweet as a pool, bar, or restaurant on high. So it […]

Chinese New Year & Valentines Day @ Garibaldi KL

It’s no secret that Garibaldi is one of our favorite Italian Restaurants. And we were delighted when we found out that for Chinese New Year, there would be an exciting innovative menu too, for those who celebrate the auspicious year of the Snake. It’s been a long time since Italian Asian fusion cooking has promised […]

Favola @ Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur

There was nothing nuanced about the appetizers that arrived on our table at Favola. We were told by our hosts, to order a soup and mains.. but had we known they’d out do themselves on the starters, we would have paced ourselves differently. The beautifully marinated trio of tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella cheese, fresh basil tickled […]

Verona Trattoria Section 17

We are back at Verona! This place now serves pork, and since our past experiences have always been good here, we were pretty sure that the latest grub offerings would be good too.(Read our past post here). Verona Trattoria has in its repertoire the casual home cooking style that might be called bistros or diners […]

Garibaldi Italian Restaurant and Bar @ Bangsar Village

The day Garibaldi opened its doors to the public, it became immediately clear what Kuala Lumpur had been missing all these years: a warm, intimate ambiance, fabulous cuisine, and Chef-attended service. Garibaldi might have even launched a bit of a culinary metamorphosis in Kuala Lumpur, and in my humble opinion, it remains one of the […]

Verona Trattoria Section 17

6591343281_ba5474052c

At first glance, Verona Trattoria seems like an odd match for the quiet neighbourhood of section 17. Located right next to Bistro a Table, as well, you would think it might feel a little daunted by the French fine-dining restaurant next door. Though it calls itself a bistro, we know how high end the food […]

Osteria Real Blue

Jalan Dutamas 1, Kompleks Kerajaan, 50480 Kuala Lumpur, Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

The dining room isn’t exactly awe-inspiring, but it’s comfy and warm, with a combination of blue painted walls and exposed brick on the walls, the old-world charm of well-worn tables and an airy front kitchen. I wonder if that’s why they call this place, Osteria, Real blue? Anyway, apart from the unorthodox deco, the message […]

Nero Fico @ Jalan Dungun, KL

There was a massive jam leading all the way into Hartamas, so we decided to do a slight detour and ended up in Damansara Heights instead. Nero Fico on Jalan Dungun.. we wanted to check this restaurant out, since we had not been here from the time it opened. (We recently tried Al Padrino across […]

Delucca @ One Residency, KL

I left my heart at Delucca..! (And my chocolate martini.. sigh..) The new Chef, the new smile.. most importantly… the menu now tastes great! He has only been here 4 days, but I am glad that Chef Nicola Carradori who hails from Tuscany, is now heading the kitchen. Prior to this, he was based in […]
