Alison Soup House CNY 2018 Set Menu With Fresh Yee Sang

One of my favourite seasons is almost here - CNY! As much as I love Christmas, I think my Chinese side takes over when it comes to seasonal foods. I love CNY food and can never get enough of it! So when Alison Soup House announced that it was introducing a CNY menu, I was excited at the prospect of trying it. First off, in every CNY menu there has to be a Yee Sang platter and Alison Soup House’s features only fresh ingredients. They have beetroot as one of the elements. I’m n

Whip Up, Kuala Lumpur

Whip Up is my new favourite dessert place! Not only are the desserts absolutely gorgeous, it also tastes as good as it looks. This newly opened dessert cafe is located in the middle of the city, just behind Berjaya Times Square, so it is very central and relatively easy get to. Chef Tee's mission is simple, to make the world a sweeter place. And he does just that! Whip Up's desserts range from the classics to the unique. To be honest, there is not one dessert on the menu that

Acai Lab, Solaris Mont Kiara

Acai bowls have been all the rage in Kuala Lumpur and Acai Lab has opened up its door at Solaris Mont Kiara, taking up the half shop lot with Brasil Fitness. The acai berry, which originates from Brazil, is base ingredient for the acai bowls that everyone is going crazy about. Acai berry bowls here at Acai Lab range from RM15.90 to RM21.90 depending on the size of the bowl. Each bowl is a quick to-go kind of meal - the size you pick just depends on how much you wish to eat. A

Common Man Coffee Roasters, TTDI

Being a huge fan of the coffee served at Common Man Coffee Roasters in Singapore, this visit to their KL establishment was met with a ton of excitement and anticipation. Disclaimer: I have a love/hate relationship with its branch in Singapore: I loved their ambiance, their impeccable coffee-making skills and the fact that they had a health/yoga studio right upstairs; on the other hand I wasn't a terrible fan of their price point and the fact that their food had a tendency to

The Good Co., Bangsar

Smoothie bowls have been trending in a huge way in the eat clean scene all around Malaysia. As the millennials continue to find more creative ways to supplement their healthy lifestyles, foodies like me get to enjoy yummy, yet diet-friendly dishes. We decided to head down to The Good Co in Bangsar one morning for a mid-week pick-me-up in the form of what could possibly be the best smoothie bowls in KL. The healthy, colourful bowl of goodness can be enjoyed any time of the day

The Barn, Pavilion KL

I first heard about The Barn when they opened in One Mont Kiara and visited it once in that branch. But it was my first time heading to the Pavilion branch when they invited us there for a review of their 1KG Tomahawk steak - a seasonal item on their menu. The Barn is designed in such a way that would appeal to various dining groups - from couples, to families to friends who just want a chilled out place to drink and hang out in. Of course, The Barn's extensive beverage list

Hail's Soft Serve, Damansara Uptown

I always say, "There's always room for dessert!". And boy, was I glad I came down to this place. I was craving ice cream one evening and found this place in Damansara Uptown. I walked in and ordered the Nyonya Delight: Melaka Snow (RM14). I picked the pandan flavoured ice cream, which came with sage pearls, coconut snow and topped off with caramalised gula melaka. It was the perfect Malaysian twist to this dessert. I was actually too excited when I got my dessert and finished

Le Noir KL: the cocktail experience

Having lived in Singapore for a couple of years, I got used to having really great live music places to frequent during the week. I even found myself frequenting the same places just to catch a certain group or singer-songwriter. But when I returned to KL, I was surprised to find that there were far fewer spots with really good live bands to catch. It is a shame, really, since it is such a treat to have after a long day of work. Thankfully, when Le Noir opened in KL (having h
