Something awesome is gonna kick-off THIS weekend, and we'd love to have you around. We worked with 9 of the best food trucks in Klang Valley to come up with original and unique food truck recipes available only for 3 weekends starting this week. Don't miss it. This past month, our Chef-In-Residence Eddie and Head of Content Honey have been working hard with the talented food truck owners to create these recipes for you. This couldn't have happened without Hong Leong Bank.

"One for hot dog lovers."
Finally, a good hot dog truck in the Klang Valley! As you guys might have noticed, food trucks are starting to get traction with local foodies and a great variety are popping up on sidewalks near you. There are Tex Mex trucks, coffee trucks, pasta trucks and ta daa,

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?

"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.
While some of you are busy toiling away in your kitchens this holiday season, there are others who maybe don't have the time or... uhm, inclination to cook. But that's totally fine as there are lots of places offering Christmas lunch or dinner this year. All you need to do now I guess is to make a reservation quick! But yup, try your luck out and you might just score a table. Here are our Top 3 picks for Christmas dinner to cap off the wonderful year that was 2014. The Budget Option: The Humble Pie, S17, PJ
This little shop in Section 17, PJ is offering a dainty Christmas menu that starts at RM40+ and stops at RM60+. This is the restaurant to go to for a cozy, laid-back Christmas treat.
