The last time I dined at Dancing Fish was when they first opened, some 5 years ago. As one of the few restaurants around town serving good Indonesian fares, they have been doing well. And in fact, the restaurant just bagged the “Rising Star” Platinum Business Award 2016 bestowed by the SME Association of Malaysia. That’s a testament of the restaurant’s unique local expertise on the verge of making their global presence in the near future. Certainly, Dancing Fish has been … [Read more...]

Now I must admit Bukit Jalil is not an area I frequent much. But then I heard about this Indian restaurant there that serves a good variety of both Northern and Southern Indian favourites and thus, we made our way there. Opened just last year in this rather quiet neighbourhood, Mallikas Restaurant occupies a middle lot in one of the few rows of shops in the Bukit Jalil commercial area.

CERDITO RESTAURANT: IBERICO PORKY FEAST!
Opened in May this year, Cerdito Restaurant is a full-service restaurant right smack in the middle of Puchong Jaya.

The clean classic lines of its contemporary design … [Read more...]

RUYI & LYN’S 1ST ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION UNVEILS ITS NEW MENU
How time flies - I can’t believe that it has been a year when I first stepped into Ruyi & Lyn and was blown away by Chef James Ho’s iconic miniature nasi lemak and Hainanese chicken rice.

So did their subsequent dim sum items, which caused another ravenous furore in the media - check those out here. Fast … [Read more...]
LAS CARRETAS MEXICAN RESTAURANTS – NORWEGIAN SALMON TROUT GALORE!
With a bright pink sheen and white marbling on the flesh, the Norwegian salmon trout is prized for its clean rich flavour.

The velvety texture is firm yet delicate to the bite. Chef Victor Siow of Las Carretas knows his fish well. Not only is he an avid and accomplished deep-sea fishing enthusiast, he … [Read more...]
