Authentic Italian Delights at Uncle Chilli’s Bar & Restaurant by Chef Massimo Zampar

I first met Chef Massimo Zampar a couple of years ago when he was helming the kitchen of Neroteca. If there’s one memorable thing arising from that meal, it was the excellent tagliatellle which he made fresh and cooked it with the most delicious meaty sauce. It was such an exceptional dish that whenever I […]

You will be forgiven if you think The Gallery houses art pieces – many people think that too. Well, you aren’t half wrong as there ARE paintings inside this premise and they are for sale.

Beat your way to BEATO now!

TOPSHELF’s New Menu

Having just returned from Paris and having tasted her food, I realise that we do have some pretty good French cooking offered in our local restaurants too. And affordable. Yes, very affordable, if compared to what’s paid in Paris. Of course the argument goes that it’s because our ringgit has depreciated tremendously and one should […]

Hawk & Fish @ TTDI Kuala Lumpur

The name “Hawk & Fish” certainly seems intriguing and when I first heard of it, images of a soaring hawk diving in to fish from a flowing river came to my mind and I thought that’s quite an odd name for a restaurant. How wrong I was as I was later told that the “hawk” […]

Good Friends Cafe, Subang Jaya

With such a simplistic name, the vision behind this place is crystal clear. Obviously the owners want it to be a place where good friends (and family) can gather to enjoy simple honest meals that won’t bust your wallet. Food served here has a “homey” feel and the chefs are geared and passionate about cooking […]

Bandar Puteri Puchong houses hundreds of eateries in its maze-like neighbourhood but none is as unique as BibiWok.

3 Bags Full… of goodies to dig in!

  It’s safe to say that the café scene has almost reached saturation point now in the Klang Valley.  Cafes now are a dime a dozen and a new one pops open every other week.
