"Great wood-fired pizzas on a trailer!"
Wood-fired oven pizza, when done well, is a thing of beauty: a thin, crispy crust that puffs up at the edges with a subtle smoky flavour, and beautifully cooked ingredients on top. These reasons are why Ikmal decided to build his own oven (on a trailer!): to share his love of wood-fired oven pizzas with everyone. Hence was born WOP KL (Wood-fired Oven Pizza KL!). More »
"A good slab of meat with homemade sauce please!"
We are now so spoiled for choice. Nowadays when we hanker for a steak or lamb chop, we just need to pick from the high-end at hotels and restaurants, mid-range steak joints or go down to small local western eateries for serious no frills and value. In 1993 though, there wasn’t so much choice. With this in mind two friends, Bo and Ron decided to open a steak restaurant that’s easy on the wallet but satisfying on taste. 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

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.

"It's got to be The Morning After.."
It is the age of the hip (and hipster) cafe and The Morning After is another in a long line of hip (and hipster) cafes. Thankfully, it's one of the places that has had some effort and thought put into the menu. Yes, they have coffees and teas galore but this trendy cafe is one that you'd come to not just for coffee.... but for the food. More »

"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. More »
