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.

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” […]

Yuzen Japanese Restaurant

Taking over the spot which used to be another Japanese restaurant, Yuzen has expanded into the adjoining lot, thus space is never an issue here. In fact, there are several private rooms set up here for some cosy dining. It’s always nice to start off a Japanese meal with some salad and sashimi. Depending on […]

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 […]

Epicuro – what to eat besides the famous pork chops

Epicuro remains one of the best dining treasures I discovered last year and it still remains firmly on my list of favourites. Its famed Pork Chops, created by Yugin has been raved over and over (and not only by me)… truth be told, I never fail to order that at Epicuro. However, Epicuro is not […]

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. I sometimes wonder how the café owners survive, given the keen competition everywhere.  It must be pretty tough, especially in […]

Sample some good old authentic nyonya food on Thursday evenings when “Nyonya Peranakan” is the theme. Auntie Belle cooks up a real spicy storm there on Thursdays. Seafood lovers, please congregate at […]
