"East Coast deliciousness in KL"
Nasi dagang - travellers rice - is a pretty popular dish. But maybe some of you folk didn't know that there are two kinds: the Kelantanese version, and a Terengganu one. Now the Kelantan one you're familiar with of course: it's the red one, often served with gulai ikan tongkol. But the Terengganu version is quite tricky to find in KL. So bless Restoran Gamelan at Ara Damansara, as they have a superb Terengganu nasi dagang.

Deep fried Mars bars (and other candy bars) were made famous from various ‘chip shops’ in Scotland and they’ve made their way around the globe now. Mukha Cafe in TTDI has one, and this here is our version. Tread carefully: it’s yummy. Dangerously so. More »
"Great place, but bring enough money!"
Beautiful restaurants are a dime a dozen in the Klang Valley area, especially with the advent of the hipster generation whose attention to aesthetics are on equal terms with their demand for good food. In this sea of pretty places, Jibby & Co. in Subang Jaya, somehow manages to really stand out. Luckily in this case, the great ambiance is matched by great food.
I was so enamoured by the 'gerang pedas' I had at Lima Blas
, I knew I had to make it at home
. Gerang pedas is probably more known as assam pedas or masak assam. I wanted to specifically recreate the taste of the one at Lima Blas... More »
