TUJO – refreshed & rejuvenated, come “Eat, Drink & Play!”

“Eat, Drink & Play” – that’s the tagline of Tujo, a bar-sserie and grill restaurant located on the ground floor of Ascott Residences.  And now when you step into their rejuvenated premises, you would be more than enticed to practise just exactly what their tagline preaches.  Looking very much like a tropical glasshouse with tropical foliage [...]

ISHIN Japanese Dining – savour their signature dishes!

Ishin Japanese Dining is located in a bungalow lot along the ever-busy Old Klang Road and it’s one Japanese restaurant that has stood the test of time.  Established more than 6 years ago, Ishin remains a popular place to head to for some decent Japanese fares at mid-range prices.  Read about my first review of [...]

HAECHI BBQ Restaurant, Setia Alam

Located in one of Setia Alam’s busiest thoroughfares, right in the commercial centre, is Haechi BBQ Restaurant. Opened just months ago, it’s the second outlet for the Lees and partners. The 1st outlet, in Kota Kemuning (read my review here) is well known among the residents in the township and I’m so happy for the [...]

My 9N 11D Trip to HOKKAIDO – Part 3: LAKE TOYA

After a 3-hour drive from Hakodate, we arrived at our ryokan, Kohan Tei in Lake Toya in the late evening.  As our booking included dinner, we had a very decent buffet dinner in the hotel.  The next morning we headed out early to explore the pretty town. Our Stay: KOHAN TEI [...]

BEI HAI RESTAURANT, Selayang

You know how in many residential neighbourhoods there are always hidden food gems that are known and patronised mainly by the residents only?  These are those “tai chow” eateries and restaurants that have been the go-to choices for family meals and the local residents keep them close to their hearts. Bei Hai Restaurant is one [...]

BEATS & BRUNCH @ LAFITE, Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Weekends are meant for food and relaxation.  That’s why weekend brunches are a dime a dozen, almost every cafe/restaurant/hotel worth its salt has a brunch to offer in this city.  In the sea of masses, what do you choose? You choose something that’s a bit different, a bit unique perhaps?  Then go no further than [...]

Indulge in HANA DINING’s WEEKEND BUFFET @ Sunway Pyramid!

I’m not a fan of buffets, unless they are of the Japanese cuisine type.  I’m sure many of you share the same sentiments – a Japanese buffet can be rather hard to resist!  Now there’s another reason to stuff our faces because Hana Dining lays out a sumptuous spread come Saturday and Sunday. Yes, the [...]
