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 […]

The Gallery @ TTDI Kuala Lumpur

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. But the core business of The Gallery is actually food. It’s a family-owned and family-run restaurant in Taman Tun Dr […]

Beat your way to BEATO now!

Dry-aging beef is very time consuming and expensive, of course. During this process, the beef is hung in special temperature-controlled cabinets for 25-30 days. During this time, the beef will slowly dry out, resulting in meats which are superior in taste and tenderness. In the dry aging process, natural enzymes breaking up connective tissues result […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The InterContinental Kuala Lumpur has just kicked off their World Celebrity Chef Series 2015 with the appearance of Celebrity Chef Edward Kwon, a top chef from South Korea.  For weeks, photos of the incredibly hot-looking Edward Kwon have been flooding my Facebook timeline.  It’s not surprising  his legion of fans go ga-ga over him with […]

Bubblylicious Brunch @ El Cerdo

Sundays are meant for sleeping in and lazy meals. If you are one of those who live by this principle, then El Cerdo’s Sunday Bubblylicious Brunch will fit right in. And if you are a porky fan, this will even be more appealing as El Cerdo is well-known for their porcine repertoire. You can opt […]

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 […]

There’s no denying that Chef Pierre is a marvellous chef and his passion is clear for all to see when he dishes up the most delicious authentic French fare from his neat kitchen in Croisette Cafe. The sweets and pastries he tirelessly bakes are works of art – I always think they are too pretty […]

Chill out at IL FARO @ Pavilion Kuala Lumpur

When Chef Willy Chan buzzed me to tell me that he’s now at this place called Il Faro in Pavilion, I didn’t need much persuasion to pop over. I’m not a frequent visitor to Pavilion Kuala Lumpur but when he told me Il Faro is next to the overhead pedestrian link bridge crossing to KLCC, […]
