Knowhere @ Bangsar

We are back again at Knowhere, Bangsar. And the last time one of us was here, it was pretty darn good. But personally, this was my first time dining at Knowhere. I was excited to try some main dishes as I the food menu itself was rather enticing. I was introduced to the prawn garlic tomato salsa (RM28) first. The prawns came and were rather large, but I didn't find them very fresh. The tomato salsa that accompanied it was quite mild to, but there was a strong garlicky flavour

Concubine @ Chinatown KL

Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur's rejuvenated Chinatown, Concubine is rich with KL's history on the dark underworld trade – think secret mahjong nights, gang lord reunions, opium smokers, prostitution and sketchy merchants. This restaurant-cum-bar is decorated with murals and art installations that aims to give you an idea of the old days in KL. If you’re looking for a new Insta-worthy spot, Concubine is the place to go! The concept for Concubine is inspired by unapologe

Christmas Buffet 2019: Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Yes! My favourite season is here! Christmas is not only great for fellowship and gifts but also because of all the good food you get to eat. Every year, we head down to a few hotels in KL to enjoy the Christmas buffets and this year is no different. Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur is back with its Christmas offerings and here's what they have: Their Christmas Eve buffet includes all the trappings of a perfect Christmas meal including roast beef and turkey! The dessert spread i

Golden Valley, Melawati Mall

We were recently invited to Golden Valley at Melawati Mall. The last visit we had to Golden Valley, the restaurant was still located in TTDI. But that outlet has since closed down and it now only has one outlet in Melawati Mall. Sporting a similar interior, the restaurant is bright, well-decorated and welcoming. It looks like a classic Chinese restaurant, feels like a Chinese restaurant, but the best part of this Chinese restaurant is that it is pork-free! Not only so - but t

Hot Pot @ Chuanxi Ba Zi, Sunway Velocity

Sunway Velocity Mall is a popular spot for many hot pot cuisines. Here to join the ever growing craze for Chinese hotpot, Chuanxi Bazi has brought the authentic taste of Sichuan to us. The flagship store located in Sunway Visio Tower stands at an impressive 3600 sq ft with three private rooms and the capacity to accommodate up to a hundred and fifty hungry guests. I visited their grand launch to check out what they have to offer. Old Chinese inspired interior design I tried t

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

Creme de la Creme Ice Cream Mooncakes 2019

It's that time of year again! Mooncake festival is just round the corner (13 Sept for those of you who don't know!). And with the recent heatwave, it's no surprise that the demand for ice cream mooncakes is off the charts. Creme de la Creme is introducing their line of ice cream mooncakes - and boy, are we impressed! Mooncake festival, also known as Mid-Autumn Festival or Lantern Festival, exists as a celebratory time for the Chinese people to give thanks for harvest. It is t

El Cerdo, Changkat Bukit Bintang

Those who used to frequent “Changkat” as far back as the mid to late 2000’s would recognise this mainstay because El Cerdo at Changkat Bukit Bintang has been around since 2005. It is iconic by now, almost hitting its 15th year of operations under the expert guidance of Chef Werner and his highly skilled team. Sporting a cute little pig on its signboard, there’s no doubting its specialty - pork. We started off our meal at El Cerdo with a Caesar salad. Of course, their version

Opium, Changkat Bukit Bintang

Back then, when you think of Changkat Bukit Bintang (or just Changkat for short), the immediate association would be to a very vibrant nightlife and rowdy partying. But today, Changkat has shifted its focus a little more on serving up delicious plates to suit every palate from Western to Asian to fusion cuisine. Opium KL falls into that last category - though it isn’t completely fusion. I like to think of it as largely Asian with hints of Western influence. The resto-bar’s se

The Burg, Damansara Utama

In Malaysia and especially in Kuala Lumpur, we’re most definitely not short of the best street food that SouthEast Asia has to offer. From simple goreng pisang to lok-lok to even grilled sambal stingray, the array of midnight cuisines provides variety for any peckish Malaysian looking for a late night snack. Today, we’re introducing you to a new member of the burger community, The Burg Malaysia! Located in Uptown Damansara, this new player offers deliciously crunchy chicken b

Curious Kitchen, Persiaran Tropicana

We recently had the privilege of trying out Curious Kitchen. I can’t believe we had not heard of it before the crazy #porknotpork MAS in-flight magazine saga with their wagyu beef. But it’s good that a lot of good publicity happened in the wake of that drama for the restaurant, because we easily had one of the best meals of our lives there. Starting off with a Yee Sang since Chinese New Year is just around the corner, we “lou’d” to the beginning of a delicious and overall sat

Wondermama, 1 Utama

After taking a tour around the world, Mama (of Wondermama) returns with a new menu inspired by all the international flavours while still retaining that familiar local taste. If you haven’t already been to Wondermama, now is a good time to go to try their new menu. Located in the Old Wing of 1 Utama Shopping Centre, the restaurant has a cosy wooden interior with rattan furniture that will remind you of visits back to your kampung where you know some good home cooked food is w

Knowhere, Bangsar

We recently dropped by Knowhere in Bangsar. You can't really miss it because it is facing the main Jalan Maarof road and its logo kind of stands out, welcoming everyone to give it a try. Also it’s hilarious when Waze announces that you’ve arrived at “Knowhere”. And I can imagine conversations going: “Where are you going tonight?” “Knowhere.” Quirky name aside, I love the interior of the place. The string fairy lights give it a dreamy feel and we love the keyhole wall mural th

FOOK KL, Jalan Sultan Ismail

Since Chinese New Year is around the corner, we’ve been going for many CNY tastings. FOOK KL, a pre-launched Asian restaurant under the famed Tamarind group, was one of them. A stunning restaurant, like its sister properties, FOOK KL dresses to impress with its empress dowager-esque settings. There is no doubt that you’re stepping into an oriental pavilion when you walk into FOOK. FOOK, which is the Chinese character for prosperity, is an appropriate moniker for the contempor

Beta KL New Menu Launch

Beta KL is always full of surprises and this new version of their menu continues to impress. Our last review there was a glowing one - you can read the full review of Beta KL here. If you liked the earlier version of their menu, then this is something you would enjoy as well. Their appetisers are decadent bite-sized pieces that are easy to enjoy for anyone. We tried the turkey with cranberries served with potato, a mushroom tart with local cheese and also a sago puff with sal

Lucky Tora, Jalan Mesui

As 2018 comes to an end, we reminisce at the awesome year we spent sampling delicious and creative dishes that the Malaysian F&B scene had to offer. And dare I say, this has to be one of the best restaurants we have visited this year. Lucky Tora is not your average Japanese restaurant. This new fusion-yakitori joint that opened its doors in Changkat Kuala Lumpur back in November 2018 offers modern-Japanese cuisine that is both unique and delicious at the same time. While the

Hyatt House Staycation, Mont Kiara

It’s been ages since we had some time to do a staycation so when Hyatt House Mont Kiara invited us for a night’s stay at their property, we were very excited. It was two days before Christmas and the vibes all around the Arcoris neighbourhood was buzzing with festive cheer. ‘‘Twas the perfect time for a staycation! Living just a stone’s throw away from Mont Kiara, I’ve seen the area develop over the years but one of the most beautiful developments in the area has to be Hyatt

Sofitel Damansara Sunday Brunch, Damansara Heights

Sunday brunch is one of my favourite meals. So I was super excited to try Sofitel Damansara’s Sunday brunch. Before I got married, it would be the perfect date for me. As a morning person, I love getting up early and getting everything I need done, then enjoying the rest of the day - from brunch to going for a massage to ending the weekend with an early night. But after I got married, Sunday brunch time became family time. My husband’s long standing appointment with his famil

Indobowl Cafe, Sungai Besi

In recent years, the rise of Indomie has been exponential. You can't turn a corner without seeing Indomie everywhere. They have come up with so many new flavours of Indomie, they have even come up with Indomie chips! So it's no surprise that it has also grown a huge cult following. And if you are a fan of Indomie, then Indobowl Cafe will be your ultimate foodie haven. With a menu filled with Indomie, Chicken Rice, and Nasi Goreng (fried rice) made with a variety of ingredient
