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 [...]

The Best Prawn Mee in Kota Kemuning at Uncle Vincent’s!

Next… the broth.  I scooped a whole [...]

Mediteca – Mediterranean Wine, Deli & Tapas Bar, Kuala Lumpur

When I heard that Mediteca has introduced a pork-friendly Mediterranean menu recently, I knew it’s time to check it out.  “Pork-friendly” certainly sounds like music to the ears of porcine lovers and it was also incentive enough for me to brave the infamous city traffic crawls for dinner there recently.  Mediteca is located right in [...]

Three Little Pigs & The Big Bad Wolf @ Bangsar Village

OK, here it goes again. I drafted this post yesterday and for some stupid unexplained reason, it didn’t get saved in the computer and all was lost after I closed the file. I spent a couple of hours spinning a tale about the Three Little Pigs… or rather, how the Big Bad Wolves devoured the [...]

Sector 7 @ SetiaWalk, Puchong

Now if that name – Sector 7 – brings up visions of some super burning monster in an oil rig 8,000 feet under the sea, as depicted in that 2011 Korean horror flick, I can’t blame you. In fact, there is a statue, or should I call it a “structure” of this alien monster right [...]

Ahhh… but coming back to the “tanker” [...]
