Best French Toast ever. There I said it. But let me digress a bit. Franco is a new Japanese-Western cafe that's opened up shop in The Curve and One Utama Shopping Centre. The cafe is cosy and hip(ster) and just about perfect for a lazy afternoon lunch or a quick dinner. The menu is surprisingly not too extensive (as usual with chain cafes or restaurants). The real high-lights here are the sweets.
Their 'Franco' French Toast is, to me, the best iteration of French Toast I've ever had in KL. Super tender, wobbly chunks of eggy bread are stacked on top of one another and dusted with icing sugar. It's served with syrup on the side and a dollop of the richest, creamiest whipped cream I've ever had. It's a breakfast and dessert all rolled into one. This is so damned good I feel like going there right now to stuff my face in it.
BEST FRENCH TOAST EVAAAARRRR..
But I'll probably end up in a dilemma because their souffles are so delicious too. Just check out this picture below:
The Chocolate Souffle is decadent, rich and so light as it comes jiggling to your table. It's packed full of chocolate flavour. You'll feel like you've just died and went to a chocolate utopia somewhere… Continue reading »
On 12 – 15 March 2015, get ready for a cool event coming your way. In conjunction with the 7th Putrajaya International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2015, FriedChillies is curating… a food truck fest! That’s right folk, the hottest thing in the local F&B thing since the burger bakar craze will be present and strong at Putrajaya next weekend. It'll be an awesome fun weekend with loads of activities. Up, up and away!
In addition to those cute balloons taking off into the sky, make your way over there and be ready for fun family activities like concerts and performances and also a helicopter ride. You could also camp out and have a picnic there as well.
Of course, FriedChillies is bringing great food trucks over as well. The local favourites will be around such as La Famiglia and Cowboys Food Truck, and they'll be joined by more than 20+ food trucks including the grand debut of food trucks from ThymeOut and Babarittos! The variety will be great too. You want fried chicken? Burgers? Pizza? You name it, you got it. There'll be something for everyone at the fiesta. This was last year. Expect more fun this year!

Pisang goreng cheese stalls, literally fried banana fritters with gooey cheese on top, seem to popping up like mushrooms lately. It's easy to see the appeal, of course: hot banana fritters, doused in liberal lashings of chocolate sauce or honey or condensed milk and topped with salty gooey cheese... man, it's yummy to just write about it. Since there are so many of them around now, here are our favourite five! Pisang Goreng Cheese. Taking over KL by storm. ANH Pisang Goreng Cheese
KSSK Street Corner, Taman Bullion near Batu Caves
Tucked in this neighbourhood near Batu Caves is a little community food court, and in this community food court is ANH Pisang Goreng Cheese. They have 7 flavours: the usual suspects like chocolate, caramel and honey, but also strawberry, blueberry and even OREOS! This is definitely one for you sweet-tooths. Topping variety aside, ANH has one of the yummiest bananas as well. Pisang abu is lovingly dipped in a batter and fried to a crunchy, crispy delight. The flavours here are well balanced and they fry fresh to order, too. Banana Cheese
Food Court Taman Kosas, Jalan Kosas Utama 2, Ampang
These folk are one of the earliest pisang goreng cheese stalls in KL. They offer 2 flavours only: original (cheese) and with chocolate. At RM5… Continue reading »
Restoran Ubi Kayu is a well known and much loved place in USJ9, Subang Jaya. They are a pretty quintessential Malay restaurant open serving breakfast all to an early dinner. However, the restaurant is most famous as being for their breakfast (though their nasi campur is nothing to scoff at) and it is here where people have come to dub the place to get 'nasi lemak beratur'. (literally, 'line-up nasi lemak'). Not quite 'Incredible Hulk' green, and thankfully not as angry too. Delicious, more like.
Ubi Kayu has one of the most unique looking nasi lemak in and around Subang Jaya because the nasi lemak is GREEN in colour. Don't worry, it isn't slurm
or Soylent Green
but the green is from natural pandan juice that they use when cooking the rice.
The rice is wonderful: the pandan gives it a gentle fragrance, while the flavour is nutty and creamy with coconut milk. The rice used also has this interesting chewy texture, like parboiled rice. One of the things people love about breakfast here is the sheer choice available as lauk for the nasi lemak. Fried chicken, curries, vegetables. You name it, Ubi Kayu probably has it. Their basic sambal is a bit watery but makes up for it by being deliciously sweet and spicy. Perfect… Continue reading »
Fish noodles are very popular in Malaysia. The more famous version uses fried Garoupa fish heads, but that’s expensive. We’ve made a cut price version that tastes just as nice. This recipe makes a great alternative to having rice for lunch. More »
"Delicious burgers, lovely pizzas..."
Burgers. Good. Pizzas. Good. Burgers and pizzas? Gooooood.
That’s the grand idea behind Patty & Pie in Aman Suria, one of the newest burger and pizza joints in town. Despite being about 6 months old, they’re serving up some delicious and creative burgers and pizzas. Watch out fans of meat and cheese on bread, this joint is right up your alley.
Golden crusted and savoury, this chicken escalope (escalope: a piece of meat that has been flattened and thinned out with a meat tenderizer… or rolling pin) makes a lovely, delicious lunch or light dinner. Served with the roasted vegetables and a light salad, it’s quite healthy too. A perfect meal for to have with friends and family. More »
