In an area where Korean eateries and coffee cafes rule, Soi 55 stands out very visibly, especially with its promotional banners strung out across the facade. As the name suggests, Soi 55 serves Thai food and its affordable meal sets are popular with the crowd. We were there for an early lunch on a Saturday and were among the first few diners there. The menu was comprehensive, listing down the usual Thai favourites. We started off with some Thai Milk Tea and Lemongrass Tea while perusing … [Read more...]

Dining at The Royal Selangor Yacht Club (RSYC) – it’s OPEN to the PUBLIC!
The Royal Selangor Yacht Club (RSYC) is no stranger to me. My in-laws were the first food operator of this grand dame, way back many years ago. At that time and until a few years ago, the RSYC was strictly for members only. It’s the oldest and largest yacht club in Malaysia, having been established in 1963. The club is graced by the royal patronage of HRH Sultan of Selangor. Some of you may be familiar with the prestigious Raja Muda Selangor International Regatta, which is organised by … [Read more...]

Located just over 200km from Kuala Lumpur, a leisurely drive of about 3 hours would bring you to this little town. We used to have a neighbour who was … [Read more...]

Grab a table at TABLE 23, Jalan Mesui, Kuala Lumpur

The eateries along this road, Jalan Mesui, seem more comfortable and definitely more inviting than those on the main touristy belt. We were at Table 23 for dinner and while waiting for our food, we took time to take in the cosy charm of the place. Personal gifts and deco items of the owner are displayed in a cabinet, some of which are conversational pieces. got the feeling … [Read more...]
