"Pizza in KL just got serious.."
Unlike burgers, pizza hasn't really hit its boom... yet. Is it because they're harder to make or get right than burgers? We're not sure ourselves. However, there are some good independent pizza places in the Klang Valley. These are restaurants that have dedicated people making their own, home-made style pizzas. Often they taste better too compared to the usual 'delivery' pizzas from you-know-who-they-are.
Mikey's Original New York Pizza
in Bangsar is one such place. It's a Mat Salleh owned place, as proprietors Michael Helfman and Andrew Belucci hail from the USA and have been making pizza since the 90s.
Welcome to Mikey's!
A dearth of good pizza restaurants was what prompted them to open up their own in KL. Ever since they started earlier this year, Mikey's has been getting some good buzz on social networks. The restaurant is clean and stylish
, easily echoing an American-Italian eatery with its chess-board floor and brick walls decorated with old-timey posters and pictures. More »
"Big Burgers and Bear Hugs..."
Big Hug deals in cute. Plush chairs populated by bears, a wall of kitsch and quirk and yeah, some deeelicious burgers too. 3 words. Soft-shell crab burger.
Crispy fried, laid on a bed of snow crabsticks, snuggled with fresh leaf blankets within pillow-soft buns. I know, got you at soft-shell huh? What’s even more glorious is the ebiko mayonnaise dolloped on top, giving a burst of brininess to the whole affair. More »
"Burgers straight outta Bikini Bottom!"
THE KRABBY PATTY EXISTS IN DAMANSARA DAMAI
. Seriously, the Krabby Patty, along with a Spongebob and a Patrick burger, are alive (sort of) and well at Man Burger Kukus Lava in Damansara Damai. Fans of the cartoon show should be excited. What did Man Lava do, cast a net over Bikini Bottom? More »
"The rise of a burger empire..."
Failure is not a constant. Like the phoenix that rises from its ashes (ahem, excuse me
), some things come back from loss bigger, better and more bad-ass than before. I suppose the key to such an ascent is perseverance, the will to do the absolute best and a little bit of luck. Such is the story of Burger Bakar Abang Burn

"From pauper... to King!"
If you to go to Raja Burger maybe, just maybe, you would just think to yourself: “Oh it’s just a regular dude, selling burgers.
” Then let’s say you stick around until he closes… and then you see him drive off in a Merc SLK sports car
. Next thing you know, you’re lying in bed, dreaming about owning a burger stall of your own. More »
"This is borderline burger heaven"
No, the Russian intelligence agency has not set up a makan shop in Malaysia. KGB stands for Killer Gourmet Burgers, and this burger restaurant in Bangsar has been winning over burger fans ever since they opened. After a recent visit, it is oh so easy to see why. The burgers are some of the best I've had in KL
, and anywhere else for that matter. The burgers here are also a clear homage to famous American burgers, and that my friends, is always a good thing. More »
The sleepy (well, relatively) town of Temerloh is famous for masak lemak and gulai tempoyak featuring local freshwater fish. People travel from all over Malaysia to this town in Pahang to have a taste and even ‘tapau’ the dish. Why, my colleague said his parents used to bring him over to Temerloh during weekends just for lunch!
