Royal Canton Mooncakes 2019

Mooncake season is one of my favourites in the year because I love these decadent treats. Whether it is baked or snowskin, mooncakes are always an enjoyable snack to have once a year. This year, Royal Canton sticks to its traditional roots by offering baked and snowskin mooncakes in very classic flavours. What’s great about Royal Canton’s mooncakes is that they are made fresh to order and only made in small batches. So you know you’ll always be getting the best quality! I tri

Mezze, Damansara Heights

One of the most popular and hip joints in Damansara Heights have just reopened offering a new and refreshed dining & drinking experience. Mezze Bar & Bistro has been around for years serving up delicious cuisine with a charming ambience that regulars love to come to unwind and have a good time. They have stamped their mark over the years being one of the top wine and dine restaurants in Klang Valley and now, they have come back newer and better for 2018. The Mezze Bistro at g

Birch, DC Mall

Birch, DC Mall is a new hip restaurant that’s making waves in the Damansara Heights neighbourhood. As you step into the establishment, you will be immersed in a relaxed and laid-back setting, reminiscent of the many famous restaurants and bars in West Hollywood. The good people behind Birch who happen to be creators of well-known establishments such as Huckleberry, Mezze and Skullduggery really know how to set the tone for their customers and they have done a really good job

The Mockingbird, Damansara City Mall

Sitting down at The Mockingbird, you are momentarily transported to a beach oasis in the Hamptons. With the cool beachy woven lamps, fairy lights strung across the ceiling, stylish rattan chairs, wooden swings, and the pop of green from the tropical leaves that are printed on the pillows and walls - you almost feel like you're on holiday. Paired with an ice cold fruity mocktail, and smooth sultry music playing in the background, you are in paradise! Not only does The Mockingb

Royal Canton, DC Mall

If it is something that Damansara Heights is really lacking, it is a good Chinese restaurant. Canton Fare had been a staple, but they closed and reopened as Royal Canton in DC Mall. We were relieved to find our favourite neighbourhood Chinese restaurant back in action and better than ever! It was pretty crowded for a Monday evening - a rainy evening nonetheless. I suppose the neighbourhood crowd is happy to have their Chinese restaurant back open. Admittedly, we should have g

GinRikSha Lunch Menu, Bukit Damansara

One of our favourite Indian fusion places, GinRikSha, has just introduced their new lunch menu. So, of course we brought a few friends with us and reviewed a few of their dishes! All the lunch dishes comes with a free drink and the prices are very reasonably priced (all the dishes were not more than RM22), so you can eat well without breaking the bank! We first tried the soups, and boy were we impressed! The Lentil and Spinach Soup (RM15) was a revelation! We loved the thick

GinRikSha, Bukit Damansara

Since our first visit to GinRikSha, the place has undergone some light adjustments - to its decor and the food menu! We love the new colourful bicycle wheels, it certainly brightens up the ceilings and matches beautifully with the cheerful walls. The latest addition to the dining area is these three large mirrors too, completing the decor of this casual dining establishment. Since its opening, GinRikSha had only been open for dinner but they are now open for lunch too! This t

GinRikSha: the cocktail menu

GinRikSha has wowed us with their food but did you know that they also serve cocktails? The cocktails here are pretty reasonably priced - much more so than places like Omakase + Appreciate and Skullduggery. Of course, this isn't some "speakeasy" but ultimately, I have yet to try any cocktails in Malaysia that have really blown me away. Singapore's a different story. So if you're in the neighbourhood and you're looking for a place with good food and decently priced drinks, thi

Tiger Lily, Damansara City

We got to visit a brand spanking new Thai cafe in the almost-finished Damansara City Mall recently. The main floor of the mall itself, while still midway through opening up its stores, felt very modern and grand, with high-class restaurants gracing the upper balconies. The lower ground floor is a more relatable, comfortable atmosphere laced with affordable dining options. Tiger Lily was founded on the idea of providing affordable and healthy food with a different atmosphere,

Erawan, DC Mall

Erawan reopens in DC Mall, Damansara Heights. It's been a week since they've opened and already they're fully booked for dinner every night. I was familiar with the hype surrounding the place before they opened in DC Mall but never got around to trying it. So since DC Mall's just a stone's throw away from home, I decided to head there for dinner one evening with mother. I didn't realise that we would need reservations already, so we just strolled in. The waitstaff seemed relu

Torii, Batai Village

Torii is not your typical Japanese restaurant. It is got a little French twist to its Asian identity. The restaurant serves up a modern take on Japanese cuisine with dishes like Trifecta Mushi (a steamed duck egg custard with ikura, foie gras and shrimp), Tuna Poke (blue fin tuna, citrus concentrate, ponzu, mango and macadamia nuts) and Wagyu Sliders (homemade patty, spinach, caramalised onions and scones). But what was truly impressive was their newly launched premium Japane
