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, […]

Ecole P – a stroll down nostalgia lane

Stepping into Ecole P is like taking a nostalgic journey down memory lane. Yes, specifically the lane to your childhood school.  It’s like stepping back into my primary school classroom.  After all, “ecole” is school in French, so it’s no wonder the owners drew their inspiration from there.

Would you like sugar with your coffee? I had a very pleasant initiation of this bistro’s offerings recently. The Pressroom Bistro serves food […]
