"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. More »
"Great coffee, great brunch."
Recently I’ve taken to eating brunches in town. As people clear out from central KL for the weekend, I find it quite relaxing to be out when streets are blissfully empty (albeit slightly), enjoy a KLCC view and chill out in the heart of the capital. Places such as Feeka
have made it pretty easy... More »
"2 years on: still fantastic."
"Off Changkat Bukit Bintang, away from the vibrant nightlife, lies a quieter street: Jalan Mesui. Near the end of this street is a place out of time; a place where, when you step in, you’re taken to a life from ‘ago’. Welcome then, to Limablas Restaurant..." That was back in 2013
, when I first reviewed them. I was told then that they were shifting someplace else (more on this later...), but as of this moment, they're still here at quiet Jalan Mesui, off Jalan Bukit Bintang, still a stones throw away from the hustle and bustle of Jalan Alor and Changkat Bukit Bintang.
"Great buffet spread, affordable prices.."
Foodies are always looking for a good deal when it comes to looking for a place to get their next meal. Buffets are a favourite option as you get to sample a variety of dishes at an affordable price. At Island BBQ Steamboat, you can satisfy your tummy without even making a dent to your wallet. It's also tucked in a relatively quiet, secluded place... More »
"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. More »
