Chir Chir Fusion Chicken Factory, Pavilion

Chir Chir is the latest fried chicken place to hit the KL food scene. A little background: the chain started in Korea before making its way to neighbouring Singapore and has now landed in KL. Our first visit to Chir Chir was a catastrophic mess as the kitchen wasn't ready to serve us just yet and had probably over-reached. But the second visit more than made up for it. I wasn't expecting much for the fried chicken here, to be honest. Thankfully, I was pleasantly surprised and

Marche, Pavilion

Yes, Marche is back! And it's better than ever. You might remember the old Marche at The Curve - it was a little dark, packed and you'd come out smelling of food.

PAUL, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

We visited the outlet at around 11.45am o

Pierre Ledent Chocolate, Mercato Cafe

It took me a while to locate it, and found that the easiest way to get there was going up the escalator in the Mercato supermarket. Before we go on, here's a little introduction on the mastermind behi

J&D Espresso, Pavilion KL

J&D Espresso used to be one of the few brunch places to go to in the Klang Valley before the proliferation of brunch places happened. They are, what I would call, one of the pioneers. Their first branch opened up in Bandar Utama many moons ago while their newest branch in Pavilion Elite is a recent addition. Taking on a very different approach here, J&D Espresso Pavilion Elite gives off a slightly more upscale vibe - clearly to fit in with its surroundings. But it is done in
