Ante Christmas Menu 2018

Our favourite restaurant, Ante is back again with its annual tradition of offering a specialised Christmas menu. This year, Ante One Utama and Ante Publika have elevated its standards in porky goodness by introducing OLIVE PORK. For the Christmas set (RM320 for 4 pax), you get a delightful chestnut salad with ricotta and raspberry vinaigrette, crispy skin smoked duck with peach salsa and 4 sets of olive pork steaks! This is more than reasonable considering the quality and qua

Down To Bones, Taman OUG

Lovers of pork ribs will LOVE Down To Bones, a casual Western eatery at Taman OUG. A bright neon sign welcomes you with the tagline “sek pai guat, hari hari kuat” which roughly translates to “eat ribs, be strong everyday”. I absolutely love the interior of the place, which is a very simple “coffeeshop-like” design with a hint of vintage touches (like an old arcade game at the front and their classic metal stools). The concept here is an open kitchen, which means you get to se

Ante’s 2017 Menu Revamp, One Utama & Publika

As long as Ante has been open, it has been one of my favourite restaurants - a praise I bestow upon few establishments. Over the years, there have been a few revisions to the menu. In October 2017 came a new round of dishes in their expansive menu. Some dishes were intriguing, some completely took my breath away. One of the major changes to the menu is that Ante now has a whole new set of side dishes to accompany their superstars - the pork steaks. Here are some of the highli

Pho Vietz, Pavilion

Vietnamese cuisine seem to be picking up popularity among our locals. With so many Vietnamese restaurants these days, deciding where to go for an authentic meal can be quite a challenge. The good news is if you are a fickle-minded person like me, your decision will be easily made. I personally would not hesitate to head straight to Pho Vietz. Allow me to tell you why. Stepping into their restaurant at Pavilion, I was absolutely welcomed by their ambience. I thought the interi

Naughty Nuri's, Atria Shopping Gallery

Meat lovers are in for a wonderful treat over at Naughty Nuri's! Having just opened their fourth Malaysian outlet in Atria Shopping Gallery back in October 2016, this trendy yet homely brand seems unstoppable when it comes to conquering the local market. Isnuri Suryatmi, “Nuri” and her husband, Brian Aldinger opened their roadside warung in Ubud, Bali in 1995 and it became famous for its tantalising BBQ pork ribs prepared with Balinese spices and a secret sauce. Since then, t

Alison Soup House, TTDI

This new soup house located in TTDI has fast become one of my default go-to spots for meals - be it lunch or dinner. Alison Soup House is a pet-friendly soup shop that serves some of the heartiest Chinese soups we have ever sampled. The cafe is located on the second floor at the TTDI square of shophouses. Alison Soup House is just above the mini market - same row as McDonald's. The house pet is Spikey - a mild tempered white poodle that barks upon arrival to let its owners kn

Neroteca, Bukit Ceylon

Every once in a while, you'll stumble upon an F&B establishment that will completely blow your mind. We did, and it's none other than Neroteca @ Bukit Ceylon, Kuala Lumpur. Tucked within the Seri Bukit Ceylon Residence, Neroteca is a charming little Italian restaurant with a warm and cosy ambiance. I wouldn't call it fine dining as it feels more like a place of comfort to feast on hearty and delicious Italian cuisine. You will be spoilt for choice as they have a wide range st

Ante x Kedai BLESS: Christmas menu 2016

Tis the season to be jolly! And it's also the season of giving. This festive season, our favourite restaurant, Ante, will be collaborating with local social enterprise Kedai BLESS to bring joy to the underprivileged communities. From now until December 25, Ante will be serving their Christmas menu which will include a starter, main course, dessert and Christmas drinks. For every order off the Christmas menu, Ante will be donating RM2 to Kedai BLESS. On the menu this year is a

S.Wine @ Tropicana City Mall

Swine at Tropicana City Mall boasts a classy interior and exterior alike. The interior is adorned with kitschy furniture and leafy trees to give it a very outdoorsy feel. The natural sunlight floods the restaurant, adding to the ambience. A pink wall of porkiness is a tasteful addition to the already beautiful restaurant. The menu is delightful fused between Western and Asian with a tendency towards Thai-inspired dishes. A motto to live by: We started off with a couple of sta

Review: Porcupine Place, Setiawalk Puchong

When I was first told about this place, the location turned me off. But I decided to make a trip to Puchong one day just to have lunch there and I don't regret it at all. I'm one for trying new non-halal joints just because it is quite difficult to find many around. I am glad this didn't disappoint. We started off with some drinks and pork meatballs. Now, while these dishes may come off very fine-diningesque, it's a very casual restaurant and prices are reasonable. The meatba

Review: Naughty Nuri's

The highly anticipated restaurant from Bali made its way to Hartamas and despite having been open for quite a while now, it still commands a strong crowd. I only recently tried it with a couple of friends so we could order more dishes. We had their signature rack of pork ribs, a non-halal mee goreng, a bacon and mango salad and some bacon and cheese croquettes. The pork ribs were both tasty and tender and worth every cent! The mee goreng, on the other hand, not so much. The b
