Beijing Roasted Duck in Si Chuan Dou Hua, PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur

When I was in Beijing, I found out that their much-touted Beijing Duck was prepared and roasted in many different styles, and I mean really very different styles!  In fact, every restaurant has its own style and there are hundreds of such restaurants in Beijing! Back here in Kuala Lumpur, I’m sure the restaurants that [...]

Muugu Garden Bistro, Bar & Grill – such affordable steaks!

In the middle of Bukit Bintang, amidst road diggings, construction, messy roads and haphazard road signages, there’s this green plot with manicured lawns and pretty shrubs surrounding a grey glass-fronted bungalow with a bright yellow “M” logo etched on the front wall.  The “M” is for Muugu, a recently-opened bistro, bar and grill with a [...]

Garrett Popcorn Shops® – Opening at Mid Valley Mall this April!

I can’t remember when exactly the Garrett Popcorn Shops made their appearances here in Kuala Lumpur but it must be about 2 years ago.  I remember my first taste of it though.  It’s not like any of the usual popcorn we get here. Garrett’s popcorn definitely is a class above, maybe several classes.  The thing [...]

Xin Cuisine – divine dimsum for private dining

We all know that for an authentic dimsum experience, it should be all about selecting your favourites from piled-high baskets on trolleys and carts pushed around in the restaurant.  At least that’s how dimsum was enjoyed back in my hometown.  One of my favourite earliest childhood memories is going for “yum cha” in the wee [...]

Ocean Shabu Shabu @ Seri Petaling

Almost every other evening now is wet and chilly.  The rain just won’t let up and on evenings when the sky opens up and pour torrents down, that’s the perfect time to have a steamboat dinner.  I enjoy steamboat for the simple method of cooking food at the table where meats, seafood and vegetables are [...]

Cocobar & Kitchen Club Lounge is tucked in a quieter row and that’s a good spot to hangout if you don’t really want to be hemmed in by crowds in the noisier sections of that sprawling crazy maze known as Publika.  Its cosy and intimate theme is great for some private chit-chats; at the same [...]

All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum Feast at Celestial Court, Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur

Coming from Ipoh, a town famed for its delicious dim sum, it isn’t any wonder that I am a dim sum fan.  I practically grew up on yum-cha sessions in the many old-world dim sum shops that are a common sight in Ipoh.  The odd thing is that we “Ipoh Mali” folks have so much [...]

Mikan @ Damansara Perdana

Damansara Perdana is one place which I hardly venture out for food, although it is pretty near my office.  With its rapid development the past few years, dining places have mushroomed so much in this area that I can hardly keep up with it! Mikan Japanese Cuisine which used to be at Maju Junction, Kuala [...]
