Premium Steamboat at YeZi @ The Roof

I think steamboat is a very Chinese thing. Well, at least here in the Klang Valley, it is. Most of the flourishing steamboat restaurants are filled to capacity, with mainly Chinese diners.

IPPUDO Bar at Bangsar Shopping Centre – indulge in Japanese whiskeys, sake & beers

  Here in the Klang Valley, Ippudo has always been associated with ramen and accompanying Japanese dishes (read my earlier review here). Now there’s another experience to associate with that name, with the opening of IPPUDO Bar not too long ago at the Bangsar Shopping Centre. Located right next to Ippudo Ramen, IPPUDO Bar’s outdoor […]

Ecole P – a stroll down nostalgia lane

Yes, specifically the lane to your childhood school.  It’s like stepping back into my primary school classroom.  After all, “ecole” is school in French, so it’s no wonder the owners drew their inspiration from there. The tables, complete with scratchings, are fashioned […]

Dining at Crave & chilling out at W XYZ Bar, Aloft Bangkok

All around the hotel are bars, cafes, restaurants, shopping outlets and the Nana BTS Skytrain and MRT station […]
