CRAB GENERATION @ Taman Len Sen, Cheras

I was told Crab Generation is a branch of the famous Fei Fei Crabs in Kepong. I haven’t been to Fei Fei myself but I was also told it’s one of the most popular Chinese tai-chow kind of restaurants in that area and has been delighting crab fans for a good number of years. So, [...]

SHERATON GRAND MACAO – LIVING THE SUITE LIFE!

I still recall vividly the time when I attended the grand opening of the Sheraton Hotel, Cotai Central in Macao in 2012 as part of the Malaysian media team. Fast-forward 4 years and the hotel has now been designated “Sheraton Grand”, a truly deserving award. This new premier tier recognizes exceptional Sheraton hotels and resorts [...]

QURESHI RESTAURANT @ KLGCC – A TASTE OF AWADHI CUISINE

The Qureshi Restaurant oozes class and charm.  Some may say it’s very “atas” and that’s also true.  The decor spells stylish luxury and understated elegance in the crisp linen, beautifully upholstered chairs and of course one can’t help but gasp in admiration at the golden domed ceiling in the centre of the restaurant.  And the [...]

HOTEL JEN TANGLIN, SINGAPORE

It used to be the Traders Hotel but has recently been refurbished and rebranded. I’ve never stayed here when it was the Traders so I don’t really know how different it was then. But I can tell you what “Jen” is like now. Wait, just who is this “Jen”? Well, Jen is actually a virtual [...]

SAUNA STEAMBOAT @ YOUMIQI CUISINE

“Sauna steamboat” is the new buzz in steamboat dining these days.  There are several restaurants which are doing a roaring business with this new trend.  Basically, it’s steaming raw fresh food over boiling stock.  Instead of the usual steamboat where raw food is dunked into boiling soup, food is placed on a steaming tray and [...]

BRAZZO CASCADES: Gastropub, Steakhouse, Wine Bar

Dataran Cascades is pretty new, in fact, it’s so new that we almost missed it.  It’s not fully tenanted yet and there are just a few eateries within the vast building.  One of them is of course Brazzo, located on Level LG, fronting the colourful water fountain.  Guests in Brazzo get a visual feast every [...]

THE HAVEN IPOH

As someone who was born and bred in Ipoh and with family still there, naturally I don’t have to stay in hotels whenever I “balik kampong”. So when an invitation was extended to me to check out The Haven, a luxurious condotel resort on the outskirts of the city, I was curious and did not [...]

BAAN KUN YA @ Centrepoint, Bandar Utama – it’s Thai dining from the heart!

Baan Kun Ya means “Grandma’s House” in Thai and it was this desire to preserve age-old recipes of traditional Thai dishes that inspired the opening of this restaurant. It’s by the same people behind Thai Odyssey – yes, those well-known massage therapy outlets. Love the rustic charm of the restaurant! Having made a strong presence [...]
