3 Bags Full… of goodies to dig in!

  It’s safe to say that the café scene has almost reached saturation point now in the Klang Valley.  Cafes now are a dime a dozen and a new one pops open every other week. I sometimes wonder how the café owners survive, given the keen competition everywhere.  It must be pretty tough, especially in thriving neighbourhoods like Kota Damansara.  And this is exactly where 3 Bags Full is located since it’s opened last December.  To stay relevant and ahead of the competition, this cosy … [Read more...]


Master Chef Kitchen – HK roasts, polo buns & kai tan chai!

Located in an outer building that’s part of the OneCity complex in Subang Jaya, Master Chef Kitchen is pretty visible with its big red-and-white signboard with the chef hat logo. It’s quite hard to miss, if you know which building to look for, within the sprawling OneCity development. Master Chef Kitchen is fashioned like a casual cafe serving Hong Kong-style roast meats served with rice and noodles. It also does a host of other simple Chinese dishes that go with rice. Most of the dishes … [Read more...]


Outback Steakhouse, Nu Sentral, Kuala Lumpur

“Big, Bold and Fresh” – now that’s the incredible tagline of Outback Steakhouse. This was clearly reinforced in the recent opening of the 2nd outlet of Outback Steakhouse in NU Sentral. Its flagship store in Bukit Bintang Park has been around since 2001 dishing out delicious food holding fast to the “Big, Bold and Fresh” philosophy. “Big” refers to the generous portions and variety of food served in Outback. I was more than overwhelmed by their portions and most of their starters, mains … [Read more...]


Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert

I’m so glad that Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert has opened an outlet here in 1-Utama.  Working next to this mall, any new food establishment is a fresh breath of air to the sometimes-jaded dining scene here. Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert originates from Singapore where it has firmly established itself with 17 branches in that island nation.  Now that’s a pretty impressive record – after all, Singapore is Singapore where competition reigns in everything.  Spotting a casual contemporary dining … [Read more...]

Berbuka Puasa “Nostalgia Sajian Desa” at Concorde Kuala Lumpur

The Concorde Kuala Lumpur has always been a popular venue for their extensive Ramadhan buffet.  Year after year, it has always been a "full house" situation at their Melting Pot Cafe whenever their Buka Puasa buffet is served.  So this year, in anticipation of the usual crowds, an additional bigger venue is open to cater to the demand.  Besides The Melting Pot Cafe, diners will be happy to know that the Concorde Ballroom will also be serving their Ramadhan buffet this year. The Ramadhan … [Read more...]

Chef Solahudin Nutto and his team are cooking up a storm of more than 50 modern and authentic Thai and local favourites for Buka Puasa during this holy month. Popular Thai dishes like mango salad, papaya salad, “mieng kam”, Thai spring rolls, Thai curries and tomyum will have their place of honour on the buffet tables. … [Read more...]


Have an A-list Malaysian Feast this Ramadhan at Aloft Kuala Lumpur!

I can’t believe we are already in the first week of Ramadhan and the first half of 2014 has passed. As my Muslim friends embrace their holy month, I can’t help but feel that time is passing by too quickly - it only seemed like last week that we celebrated Aidilfitri 2013. Aloft Kuala Lumpur’s Chef Steven Seow and his team have come up with a sumptuous spread for Buka Puasa at their funky all-day-dining Nook. I absolutely love the riot of vibrant colours that splash across this dining … [Read more...]


Burger King rolls out Transformers Blockbuster Deals!

If you are a fan of Transformers, you’ve probably caught the latest blockbuster “Transformers - Age of Extinction”. The movie opened in cinemas nationwide on 26 June 2014.

(from left to right) Ms Kara Lee, representative of United International Pictures, Mr Keith Loh, Director of Marketing, Burger King Malaysia and Singapore and Mr Fariz Ahmad Hassan, … [Read more...]
