PLOY Specials 2013

We reviewed Ploy way back in August 2011, soon after it opened.  As a restaurant that prides itself in reinventing modern Japanese and Thai cuisines, it has tantalized many a taste bud since then.  Almost two years since it established its niche in Damansara Heights, its ultra-cool retro-chic interior still retains its charm while the [...]

Golden Orchid Oriental Thai Cuisine @ Damansara Jaya, Petaling Jaya

There’s been quite a buzz in the quieter side of Damansara Jaya recently with the opening of Golden Orchid Restaurant. Barely a month old, the restaurant serves Thai cuisine with some Chinese and Malay twists. To start off our meal with a real kick, we had the Seafood Tomyum, which as you can see, was [...]

Fish Farm Thai Restaurant, Ampang

The official name of this place is Fish Farm Thai Restaurant but many reviews and posts have added an extra “Vegetables“ in front of it, hence your Google search on this place will pop it up as “Vegetables Fish Farm Thai Restaurant”.  That’s really a more apt name because there are sprawling vegetables plots in [...]

Cakes Galore in Fa Ying by Rama V

Things are getting sweeter at Fa Ying these days.  Recently they have brought in a cake counter and you can now enjoy some delicious home-baked goodies if you are tired of the usual Thai desserts.  Not that those are not good… I’m saying if you feel like having some cakes and tarts for a change, [...]

Fa Ying @ Paradigm Mall – modern Thai cuisine

I was told that Fa Ying means “princess” in Thai and by that you would nod your head once you know that it is connected to that Thai fine-dining restaurant in Kuala Lumpur called Rama V. Yes, Fa Ying in Paradigm Mall is under the same management as Rama V – people who love and [...]

Sanook Bistro & Sports Bar’s New Menu

Tucked away in the heart of Kelana Jaya is this sprawling laidback place called Sanook Bistro & Sportz Bar overlooking the lake. When you are in Sanook, you totally leave behind the hustle bustle and horrific traffic fumes of the LDP and you can almost feel the stress eroding from your soul as you relax [...]

Samira by Asian Terrace @ Sentul Park, Kuala Lumpur

I have been to the KLPAC (Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre) many times and each time I drive through that lush park known as “Sentul Park” with its narrow winding road flanked by gorgeous matured (read: tall, huge & shady) trees, I hold my breath at the majestic beauty of this green haven in the [...]

KHAO by Rama V @ Setia City Mall

The smell of fresh paint still lingers in the air as you walk into Setia City Mall.  Yes, it’s new.  The mall opened barely a fortnight ago, so everything is spanking new there.  Walk in from the South Entrance main door and you will see the sparkling new KHAO by Rama V on your left. [...]

Rama V – more pretty stuff!

I went back to Rama V again last Sunday for their Weekend Lunch because… well, because it’s such a good deal and because some friends wanted to go check it out, too. There’s hardly any place around KL that can offer a all-you-can-eat meal PLUS free-flowing wine and beer for less than RM100 … and [...]

Rama V’s Weekend Lunch a la carte Buffet – such decadence!

The few times I have eaten at Rama V had always been at dinner time and thus, I had always been treated to the beautiful and romantic ambience that dusk and night brings to the place. Warm amber lamps would light up the garden and lotus pond, casting flickering shadows among the foliage and golden [...]

Rama V Fine Thai Cuisine – Loy Krathong Festival Charity Dinner

My first encounter with Rama V – that fine-dining Thai restaurant in Jalan U Thant, Kuala Lumpur, not the famous king of Siam, was when I had the privilege of being invited to their Loy Krathong Festival Charity Dinner, sometime late last year. Prior to that, I had of course, heard and read so much [...]

Somtam @ Little Siam Corner, Summit USJ, Subang Jaya

For the past few weeks, I’ve been having a plate of Somtam every Sunday afternoon. Somtam is that delightful Thai salad made from shreds of young papayas, carrots, long beans tossed together with a very appetizing dressing made from fish sauce, lime juice, chillies and sugar. For some crunchies, toasted peanuts and fried anchovies or [...]
