New Chef, New Menu at Mandarin Grill

Fine dining was never a forte of mine and it still isn’t – I’m constantly learning from new dining experiences and chefs I meet, both locally and abroad. I learnt a great deal about the fine dining scene when I travelled to Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, where I explored the culinary offerings through the […]

Anis Puteri Corner, Pantai Dalam

I’m a big fan of Malay nasi campur especially the ones from the east coast, namely Kelantan. The dishes are heavily influenced by Thai cuisine, with emphasis on sugar and coconut milk – expect the curries to taste richer, sweeter and creamier. My regular fix is at Restoran Jaring but a friend told me about […]

Bisque Cakes

I’ve always been a stickler for good cake – ones that are dense yet refined, rich yet not overly sweet and with toppings I can actually eat. And no, fondants aren’t one of them. When Bisque approached me to check out their range of cakes, the first thing I noticed was how pretty they were. […]

Caffeinated Cabin, Jalan Gasing

Despite writing for more than 7 years, I find it tough to constantly find inspiration in what I do – creative, corporate, feature and blog. Little nooks and cafés help in giving me inspiration to write and such an ambiance promotes creative thinking. So I go to one during my off-days, to catch up on some […]

HWAN by Chakri

My first Thai mango salad was in Bangkok, where I sat by the roadside along the stretch of Sukhumvit. The lady used a mortar and pestle (batu lesung in Malay) to pound and mix the salad — it was robust, spicy and tropical. Hwan’s version is currently the closest to that. This was assembled upon […]

Straits Food Company, Bangsar

There’s plenty to like about Peranakan (Nyonya) cuisine, an amalgamation of Chinese, Malay and Portuguese influences in one cauldron. To date, the best Nyonya food I’ve tried still comes from my mother in-law’s kitchen. She makes delicious ayam pongteh, ayam buah keluak, popiah and Nyonya laksa, among many others. Pity she has no interest in […]

Miam Miam, Penang

There is a lot of hype about Miam Miam (‘yum yum’ in French), a café that serves a range of French food with strong Japanese influence. While we’ve yet to try the one at 1 Utama, rif and I managed to pop by the outlet in Penang for dinner. The café’s interior marries European and […]

The Humble Pie Co., Section 17 Petaling Jaya

Some people spend their life climbing the career ladder and when they get there, they realise it’s not what they want all along. I like to think I have a diversified career portfolio and industry but within the line of communications, branding, marketing and advertising. It’s what I’m good at. But sometimes, doing what you’re good […]

Kee’s Creampuff: New Savoury Series

I’ve always been a fan of creampuff – a light pastry casing with creamy custard filling. This has been a personal favourite and I would treat myself to a piece or two whenever possible. Kee’s Creampuff because a regular spot since they opened another outlet in Bangsar Baru; much easier for me to access. They […]

VCR Coffee, Kuala Lumpur

As the blog turns 7 in a few months, I recall the wonderful times I’ve had, life experiences I’ve gained along the way, friends I’ve made and wonderful opportunities I’ve been presented with. Alas, it hasn’t been smooth sailing throughout. With success comes great responsibility, and not to mention haters. I’ve learnt that there is no […]
