"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.
"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 »
"A pie a day makes you come back here for more!"
DELICIOUS, was the first word that came to mind when we first sampled a pie from this brand new eatery at Uptown Damansara. I know, that’s a giveaway, but this place is probably one of the best new cafes to open in recent times. A Pie Thing is conveniently located. It’s adjacent Damansara Utama’s police station and you’ll see its big and clear signage from the highway as you drive towards TTDI or Mutiara Damansara. This fresh idea for a restaurant (a pie specialist! Not too many of those around yet) is the brainchild of a group of friends who previously studied at Taylors University...
"Durian filled pies... let's go!"
The desserts at The Humble Pie Co have a homemade quality, no frills, straightforward and fuss-free. Citing his grandmother and Jamie Oliver as a couple of his culinary influences, self-taught baker and first-time café owner, Eugene, never expected his craving for banoffee pie would one day turn into a business. In 2007, after being dissatisfied with the ones he tried, he decided to make his own. Soon enough, friends started asking, orders came in and as they say, the rest is history. After years in the publishing industry, Eugene bit the bullet and in mid 2014, he set up The Humble Pie Co with his business partner, Angela Tan. 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 »
