"A pie a day makes you come back here for more!"
DELICIOUS, was the first word that came to mind when we first sampled a pie from this brand new eatery at Uptown Damansara. I know, that’s a giveaway, but this place is probably one of the best new cafes to open in recent times. A Pie Thing is conveniently located. It’s adjacent Damansara Utama’s police station and you’ll see its big and clear signage from the highway as you drive towards TTDI or Mutiara Damansara. This fresh idea for a restaurant (a pie specialist! Not too many of those around yet) is the brainchild of a group of friends who previously studied at Taylors University...
We made this burger for a TV show sometime back, and now we’re sharing it here! This lamb burger is seriously super delicious and dead-simple to make. It’s so good we named it after a robot! More »

Bread and butter pudding is one of the great comfort foods. Stale bread is transformed into a delicious dessert. There are many varieties and recipes out there. This version is simple and light, but comes with bursts of chocolate and caramel from the Mars bars. Excellent stuff. More »
Food trucks are taking KL by storm! But we've always had them, it's just that we usually call them vans i.e. Rojak Van, Fruit Van and so forth. So basically when you say Food Trucks we are talking about the ones tricked out like little mobile restaurants and cafes. We've invited 5 cool ones to attend the upcoming GREAT 2014 in MAGIC Cyberjaya that best… More »
Let's check out some of the best nasi lemak in Shah Alam for our Nasi Lemak Monday this week..
As with any other city in the Klang Valley (or Malaysia, come to think of it), Shah Alam is chock-a-block full on nasi lemak sellers. Shops, stalls, people going around carrying baskets of the stuff and not to mention the ones you'll find at the pasar pagi and pasar malams. You're spoilt for choice. Here are three of our current picks. Expect this list to expand soon! Nasi Lemak Pak Ayob (stall behind Petronas Seksyen 20, in front of KPJ Selangor Medical Center)
One of the big names in the Shah Alam nasi lemak scene. They were part of our I EAT NASI LEMAK event last year and with good reason. Their 8-hour slow cooked sambal is just packed with flavour and is rich, sweet and spicy. The nasi is wonderfully 'lemak' as well. Portions are huge so if you're hungry this is the one to go for. Nasi Lemak Akak Yong Unit 5, Ground Floor, Block 2, Prima U1 Jalan Penyelenggara U1/73 40150 Shah Alam
People throng this place for one thing: the ayam goreng madu which is absolutely to die for. Marinated in honey and… Continue reading »
"Dangerously addictive tom yum with a kick"
Ara Indah Thai Food is one of those places you wish you knew about earlier. It's a small, almost ramshackle roadside kedai tom yum that almost nobody has heard of. Hey, even I sort of just stumbled upon it one day as I was lost trying to get from Bandar Utama back to Uptown (I blame trying to escape traffic on the LDP). But boy, was it one heck of a discovery. It might well be my favourite kedai tomyum right now...
