"Not just a hipster cafe.."
With so many new cafes sprouting in the Klang Valley, it’s hard to differentiate one from the other. Yes, it’s a given, all of them offer great coffee but food wise, not many serve dishes that goes beyond the boring quiches and sandwiches. Fortunately, the good folks at Bandits Coffee Bar in Bukit Damansara are an exception, flexing their culinary creativity further than the usual latte art, with a menu displaying dishes that are both wholesome and tasty.
"The flavours of Bangkok on a plate.."
Let's get this straight: KL has no shortage of Thai restaurants, nuh-uh. Everywhere you look you'll see some variation of a Thai restaurant. High end, mid-end, your neighbourhood kedai tom yum. To put it simply, if you want Thai food (or a slightly bastardized version of it), then you're not short of choice. But if I have to give an award to most Thai-sounding, it'll go to Pormtip Thai Restaurant at Bandar Sri Permaisuri.
"Delectable treats at not-so-KL prices.."
I have to admit I have a sweet tooth. Even after a big meal or chicken or pasta or nasi campur or whatever, I'm always hankering for something creamy and sweet and luscious. So it's no surprise that I'm constantly on the lookout for a dessert spot in KL. Even if it's just for ice cream.Thankfully KL is loaded with good places to indulge in my sweet tooth. I found one tucked away right in busy Pandan Indah: Fougasse Boulangerie & Patisserie.
"Pulut Kuning - the golden rice of Malaysia..."
Looking for something different for breakfast? Wrapped up in fragrant banana leaf, bright yellow and steamed to perfection, Kak Ana’s Pulut Kuning is a dish that is a great alternative to the usual nasi lemak. Coming from a long line of Kelantanese cooks, it was only natural that Kak Ana decided to continue the family tradition. About 18 years ago, she decided to set up a stall in Taman Tun...
Slap bang next to the Marriott Putrajaya is this new huge shopping mall that will definitely make your head turn because its so huge and supposedly in the middle of nowhere. But then again, this location proved to be quite strategic as people all the way from KL to Seremban come shopping here. The local concept shops are fresh (some of them), there's an ice rink, parking is easy (for now-lah) and there a host of new food that you can try. Here are the Top 3 things we like to munch there. Magnum Ice Cream, GE-3, Ground Floor
On weekends, the lines gets to be about 30- 40 people long nonstop. Why? because you can custom make your magnum ice cream with a variety of toppings from rose petals to chili flakes. A maximum of three toppings per ice cream. You get to select the ice cream base (vanilla or chocolate), then select the dip (dark, normal or white chocolate) then select the three toppings you want. The Magnum staff will then build the ice cream right in front of your eyes until it becomes like this!
It costs about RM10 per ice cream but then you think... izzit too expensive? Ask the 40+ people queing for theirs... I think people don't care how much this cost really. They just want their pretty ice cream. Cornery, LG-K9, Lower Ground floor
yeah, the name is kinda corny isn't it?… Continue reading »
