FARM TO PLATE @ Damansara Kim – let the natural flavours shine!

Farm to plate, farm to table – these are the latest dining trends around town. It’s like a spin-off from the organic food craze, which is not a bad thing. People are now appreciating the value of chemical-free food and the next step is to eat food that’s freshly brought in from the source: the [...]

PUTIEN celebrates its 16th Anniversary with More Good Food!

Back in 2000, Putien’s founder Mr Fong Chi Chung started the restaurant as a coffee shop in Kitchener Road, Singapore. Mr Fong, who migrated from Putian of Fujian Province in China, missed the home-cooked dishes from his homeland and decided to open that restaurant to recreate those dishes. The rest, as they say, is history. [...]

UOVO, Damansara Kim

Located along a quiet road in Damansara Kim, Uovo’s nondescript exterior is somewhat misleading. Once you step through the door, the dimmed ambience spells understated chic comfort. I like how the brocade drapes, dark wallpaper and intricate hanging lights combine to portray a dining space that can be both casually cosy or comfortably formal! Uovo’s [...]

Celebrate Belgian Week with A Modern Twist on Belgian Classics at SOLEIL

Did you know that Belgium has 129 Michelin-starred restaurants? Based on per square km, considering that Belgium is a relatively smaller country compared to others in Europe, that’s like one of the highest in the world! Located practically in the heart of Europe, it’s understandable that Belgian cuisine is influenced by German, French, Austrian and [...]

YOUMIQI – SHUNDE CUISINE ROCKS!

In my last review of Youmiqi in May this year, I recommended their Kungfu Steamboat which was the highlight of my meal there. I didn’t really have a chance to check-out their regular menu items as that steamboat was really fulfilling! Read about that memorable meal here.     Recently I visited Youmiqi again and [...]

DANCING FISH, Bangsar Shopping Centre

The last time I dined at Dancing Fish was when they first opened, some 5 years ago. As one of the few restaurants around town serving good Indonesian fares, they have been doing well. And in fact, the restaurant just bagged the “Rising Star” Platinum Business Award 2016 bestowed by the SME Association of Malaysia. [...]

MALLIKAS RESTAURANT – Best of Northern & Southern Indian Cuisines

Now I must admit Bukit Jalil is not an area I frequent much. But then I heard about this Indian restaurant there that serves a good variety of both Northern and Southern Indian favourites and thus, we made our way there. Opened just last year in this rather quiet neighbourhood, Mallikas Restaurant occupies a middle [...]

CERDITO RESTAURANT: IBERICO PORKY FEAST!

Opened in May this year, Cerdito Restaurant is a full-service restaurant right smack in the middle of Puchong Jaya. In an area that’s brimming with casual cafes, kopitiams and noisy Chinese “tai-chow” kinda restaurants, Cerdito stands out with its prominent facade in a corner lot. Stepping into the restaurant, I was pleasantly taken aback with [...]
