IMPERIAL DIM SUM BRUNCH @ CELESTIAL COURT, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur

There’s a reason why they call it the “Imperial” Dim Sum Brunch at Celestial Court, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur (and not because of the hotel’s name!). The variety and quality of the items listed in the special dim sum menu sure measure up to a royal feast. Happening every Saturday, Sunday and Public Holidays, this dim [...]

Start your SEGAMAT FOOD TRAIL at VIP HOTEL!

Ipoh, Penang and Melaka are popular destinations for short breaks away from the city. The problem is these cities are so popular that on most weekends and public holidays, they will be crowded with holiday-makers thronging the well-known spots. If you are tired of the above scenario, why not head down south to Segamat for [...]

LAI CHING YUEN @ Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur unveils NEW MENU!

It has been quite some time since I last set foot in Lai Ching Yuen, the elegant Chinese restaurant in Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur. In a recent visit,  I was again struck by its stunning red and black decor with touches of gold elements enhancing the grand oriental theme of the restaurant. I like the [...]

Grab a table at TABLE 23, Jalan Mesui, Kuala Lumpur

Table 23 is located in the middle of a quieter road away from the mad chaos of Changkat Bukit Bintang. The eateries along this road, Jalan Mesui, seem more comfortable and definitely more inviting than those on the main touristy belt.   We were at Table 23 for dinner and while waiting for our food, [...]

Peruvian Roast Chicken at BRASARIA, Jaya One, Petaling Jaya

Since the last Peruvian chicken restaurant in my hood closed down, I thought I won’t see one again around for some time. But guess what? There’s a restaurant tucked away in Jaya One which serves only Peruvian-style roast chicken which recently came into my radar. Brasaria is a bright cheerful eatery done up in the [...]

PORK-FREE DINING @ DYNASTY RESTAURANT, Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel

The Dynasty Restaurant in Renaissance Kuala Lumpur Hotel has recently been converted into a Pork-free eatery. While some chefs may find this a challenge, ie cooking Chinese food without pork may somewhat affect the flavours of the dishes, Executive Sous Chef Kok Chee Kin has crafted a repertoire which proved to be just as good. [...]

KRISTANG CUISINE – MELBA AT THE MANSION, The Majestic Malcca

In our recent 2nd visit to the lovely YTL resort, The Majestic Malacca, I was delighted to note that the hotel’s main restaurant, The Mansion has now adopted a new concept.

DZH SEAFOOD SAUNABOAT @ TREC Kuala Lumpur

There’s steamboat and there’s hotpot but have you heard about saunaboat?  Basically, saunaboat  it’s about steaming food, in the true sense of the word.  The regular “steamboat” is such a misnomer – food is cooked in boiling soup and not steamed!  Whereas, saunaboat is much like in a sauna – placing food in a closed [...]

My 9N/11D Trip to HOKKAIDO – Part 2: HAKODATE

Hakodate is the 3rd largest city in Hokkaido, after Sapporo and Asahikawa. Our leisurely drive from Noboribetsu took about 3 hours as we took our time and stopped for coffee along the way. We reached our hotel, Dormy Inn Express in the late evening. After checking in and freshening up, we headed out looking for [...]
