Time is really hurtling through and it’s just a matter of weeks before the Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated – on 24 September 2018 actually. Synonymous with this festival is of course, the mooncakes and these are all already on sale in bakeries, restaurants, supermarkets and hotels – consumers here are really spoiled for choice.

PASSIONE RISTORANTE ITALIANO – going Italian in Sri Petaling!

The last time I met Chef Stefano was at Enoteca Restaurant earlier this year. He has since moved on to spearheading and helming a new restaurant – Passione Ristorante Italiano, located in Sri Petaling.

OVER THE MOON this Mid-Autumn at Dorsett Grand Subang

Have you seen Dorsett Grand’s mooncakes for this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival? For the baked mooncakes, the selection is based pretty much on the traditional flavours and fillings.

COLOURS OF MID AUTUMN at Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur

For the past few years, I have always been on the lookout for Concorde Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s mooncake promotion.

“TASTE OF FREEDOM” & FRESH RIVER FISH at ZUAN YUAN, One World Hotel

I think it’s pretty apt for the good folks at Zuan Yuan to select Double Boiled Soups as the highlight of their “Taste of Freedom” promotion in August. August is our month of independence as Merdeka Day is celebrated on the 31st, hence, “freedom” comes into the picture. Now I also think there’s no better [...]

Enak KL is now back in town, after a short break some months back. Still in Feast Village, Starhill Gallery, Enak KL now occupies the lot where Tarbush used to be.
