Szechuan peppers are a variety of pepper renowned for that characteristic ‘tingling’ sensation they leave on the lips and tongue. We sprinkled some toasted ground Szechuan peppers over piping hot fried chicken for an addictive, lip-smacking snack. Yum! More »
"Scones the way it should be: buttery and tender!"
I just had the best scones I’ve ever eaten in KL. They were buttery, tender and full of flavour. I had scones in these flavours: chocolate, oatmeal, raisin, plain and their special (at the time) Christmas scone which had white chocolate and cranberries. My favourite was the chocolate scone that has a great sweet and bitter taste from high quality cocoa. And I REALLY wish the Christmas scone would be present all year round: so good! The plain, oatmeal and raisin scones were exemplary too. I struck up a conversation with the Chef Justin Wong, owner and Scone-Master extraordinaire. What was his secret to delicious scones?
Make this easy peasy onion fritters for a simple, light weekend snack. Perfect with tea and some sweet and spicy chilli sauce. More »
"Exceptional, great value French dining."
French cuisine is a double-edged sword. On one hand, most culinary techniques and methods are pretty much attributed (or at least formally codified by) the French. On another, a lot of people have this perception that French food is fancy and formal, i.e. POSH. But at my favourite French bistro in KL, Yeast Bistronomy in Bangsar, they aim to change that perception.
