Boathouse @ TTDI Kuala Lumpur – food to rock your tummy & heart!

The first time I met Chef Yenni Law was at the media launch of her book “Meatology” (read my write-up here).  Of course Yenni was very busy during that event and we didn’t have much time to chat.  I sampled some of her dishes (from her cookbook) during the event and from what I tasted, […]

Launch of “MEATOLOGY” by Chef Yenni Law

In the short space of time that I had interacted with Chef Yenni Law, I found that I enjoyed her company very much. Oh she was quick to tell me to quit calling her “chef” and insisted that I just call her by her name. I met Yenni for the very first time at the […]

The Pressroom Bistro @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

The Pressroom Bistro got its name from a traditional wine pressing facility and not the press room for news people as most would think so. I was under the latter impression, too. Would you like sugar with your coffee? I had a very pleasant initiation of this bistro’s offerings recently. The Pressroom Bistro serves food […]

Epicuro @ Damansara Uptown – delectable porky bites!

“Where would you recommend for a good meal?”  I often get asked this perennial question.  I usually drill further to find out what particular cuisine the person has in mind before giving any recommendation. These days, if someone asks me where to go for some casual dining, western-style, I find myself saying unreservedly “Epicuro”!  Ever […]

Mediteca – new a la carte menu!

It has been almost a year since Mediteca launched its porky items in their menu. A year of testing the market and their customers’ preference… it’s time to revamp the menu. And revamp they did… throwing out less popular dishes and adding on new exciting ones. After lots of brainstorming (and kitchen storming too), Chef […]
