Flavours were sweet and clear in most of the dishes, as what Hongkong-style does: allowing the natural goodness of ingredients to shine. With wellness very much in mind, the dishes are well executed with minimal use of oil and hard flavouring
One of these eateries, The Living Room, serves as the all-day dining restaurant.

Dining at EMP KL promises to be a gastronomic journey that will delight the senses.
So recently for Christmas eve, I took myself to the newly opened fusion contemporary pork- free Chinese restaurant at EMP KL and believe me it was so worth it as it was truly a treat for the senses….
With a name like Churrascaria, one would expect the restaurant to churn out heaps of mouth-watering barbecued meats. Qba Bar & Grill, one of the restaurants housed within The Westin Kuala Lumpur, one of the most exclusive hotels in the heart of Kuala Lumpur; offers all you can eat Brazilian-inspired churrascaria-style buffet. The award-winning restaurant earns its reputation for serving some of the best grills in town, head there with a big appetite and expect a constant carving of not only meat but a generous offer of Seafood as well. The dining area behind the drinking place (of Qba) has a rustic, vibrant and easy-going atmosphere; making it a fun place to hangout (alcohols can be ordered at additional costs). There are basic buffet counters right in front of the kitchen bar (with rotisserie in live action) that offer starters while mains are served to your table. With the help of a red and green stand, diners can decide whether they can still go on or put the indulgence to a halt. Dessert on the other hand, shall be served (though repeat orders is allowed, there will be only one type of dessert at all times). For the best value deal, check with the staff on the credit card discounts available. Brazilian Churrascaria Buffet Dinner Available on every Friday and Saturday Time: 6:30 pm to 10:30 pm Price: Rm 130 nett per diner

Every Friday and Saturday, the award-winning Qba Bar & Grill in The Westin KL will be transformed into a churrascaria, where meat lovers can indulge in an all-you-can-eat Brazilian Churrascaria buffet spread with a fantastic selection of perfectly-grilled meat and seafood. Priced at RM120 nett per person, I have to say it is great value for money, especially with the great selection on offer.
Overall, my friend and I had a truly memorable dining experience at this beautiful rainforest themed fine dining restaurant, and I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for an exceptional culinary experience in a beautiful elegant and wild setting….
Ferria is a welcome new addition to the Bukit Bintang scene and gives you another option to hang out. Prices are surprisingly decent, especially considering it is right next to Westin KL.
As the guest chef responsible for the Japanese-Australian Epicurean Affair menu for the hotel’s #DinewithChef series (24 August to 3 September), Fong then proceeded to guide Harris on the sushi-making masterclass.
Thirty8 is famous for its incredible view, overseeing the city skyline of Kuala Lumpur and The twin towers, while sipping on your tea, hanging out with your friends or family, and have some dessert.
Overall, THIRTY8 offers one of the best views of the KL cityscape. However, we found the food to be hit-or-miss. In summary – come for the view, but temper your expectations for the food.
Overall, I do say this place does live up to the hype.
For example we really like this Unagi Bao RM28. Small in size, big in flavours. Spicy, succulent unagi contrasted by crunchiness of deep fried nori, flavours lifted up with salted egg crumble and julienne cucumber for a refreshing crisp that comes in just right. Served over a basket of sweet potato chips.
THE LINGUIST (MYR 30) Sautéed Prawns and Clams with Chili Linguine, Garlic and Rocket Huge and fresh prawns were spotted!
Service is slow, food is nice, price is above average. Value for money item would be Fried Chicken and Curry Rice. Cheese cake with cream is pretty good.
Overall, the high cost of the meal (RM268 for 2.5 diners) wasn’t matched by the quality of food, so I don’t think I am likely to return in the near future. On the other hand, if I could get away with just having three courses of dessert, I might change my mind.
YURI / Matcha 6th Avenue Cheesecake! Priced at RM21, this is exclusively made available at The Tokyo Restaurant, Isetan The Japan Store, Lot 10. We personally prefer this to the original now as it has the right balance of sweetness together with the matcha. So velvety smooth and tasty!
Thanks to the friendly staff for recommending this Sup Ekor. So good! A hearty portion of tummy-warming, flavourful oxtail broth, richly seasoned with a bouquet of house spices, topped with celery cress and crispy shallot.
Reasons to visit Shook! The Starhill Dining: stylish new digs; menu catering to a variety of tastes; Dancing Prawns; grill menu; cocktails from The Alchemy; although wine by the glass is not particularly impressive their vertical collection of Chateau Mouton Rothschild dating back to the 1940s is worth at least a little envy.

Healthier mooncake selections include Snow Skin Shiro Umeboshi With Green Tea Paste and Baked Bamboo Charcoal Paste With Salted Egg Yolk would go well with the health-conscious customers.
Durian lovers can indulge in the second offering which is the Snow Skin Durian Paste With Truffle
Steamed Cod with Chinese Ham Served with Honey and Supreme Stock Paste The generous portion of the cod comes perfectly good to our tastebuds. The cod is perfectly steamed together with the Chinese Ham bringing you the aromatic flavours . The dish is just awesomely good where the fish remains its flaky texture but the flavours are enhanced by the Chinese Ham as well as Supreme Stock Paste.
The White Prawns (RM52)and Bluefin Leatherjacket fish (RM22) we had were very fresh and sweet. Personally, we prefer to dunk these into the milder broths (tomato and mushroom broths) to better savour the fresh sweetness of the seafood and vegetables.
Established in 2014, Xiao Long Kan (XLK) holds true to its guiding principles of providing ‘flavours from the soul, quality with integrity’. This Chengdu hot pot restaurant chain commands long queues of customers who seek to experience its signature hot pot with a wide selection of meat, fresh vegetables, handmade meatballs, innards and offal in assorted broths prepared using an age-old traditional recipe.
Originated from Seoul, Chir Chir (치르치르) is the largest fried chicken chain in Korea with over 100 stores in China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia.
Honey Butter Chicken (RM24.90) A highly addictive dish which I agree with crispy boneless fried chicken chucks with potato wedges and rice cakes, tossed with honey butter sauce and seasoning.
Started with this Rose Cheese Chiqueen, a cheesy chicken platter that’s going to become cheese lovers’ new favourite! Fried chicken tenders stacked over a bed of fondue cheese, topped with chunky potato wedges and cherry tomatoes, further heaped with mozzarella sauce.
CHICKEN Chasseur | Spatzle | Autumn Vegetables CHICKEN, main course that you will hardly go wrong with. Fried chicken leg done right – crispy crackly skin, shielding juicy, tender meat beneath. What raise our attention are these homemade German spaetzle, a type of pasta made from eggs, flour, water and salt. Mini and doughy, goes well with chasseur sauce served along.
Reasons to check out the reopening of Skillet at 163 KL and their modern European cuisine menu: exciting seasonal menu; contemporary and stylish setting; beautifully plated food; must try the Venison Pithivier and do have a look at their juice pairing by Chris Chung here.
Next is the Lobster, an absolutely flawless dish, both in terms of presentation and flavours. Extremely pleasing to the eye, the butter poached lobster is embellished with celery, apple, edible flowers and rutabaga (swede) with mascarpone. To go with the lobster, a sauce made from fermented apples with fish broth is poured tableside, finished with a few drops of kombu oil. Beautiful, delicate flavours.. loved it!
I was privileged to be invited for ‘a meal among friends’ by Jeanette of Elegant Inn (EI) Hong Kong Cuisine restaurant recently.
Attention to the tiniest details is restaurateur Jeannette Han's maxim. Still going strong after 15 years at Menara Hap Seng, the understated Elegant Inn Hong Kong Cuisine restaurant remains a firm favourite among discerning Chinese food lovers in the city.
It took them a while to perfect their Golden Boneless Stuffed Chicken with Chicken Tomato Salad. The chicken skin is utterly crispy and scrumptious. Coupled with the bouncy bites of the prawn and chicken paste, one can easily polish a few pieces of these. A lightly roasted tomato wedge topped with shredded chicken and drizzled with house made orange balsamic sauce proved to be a good yin to the yang of the stuffed chicken pieces.
I totally enjoyed the Steamed Giant Garouper with Cordyceps Flower, Stir-fried Prawns with Hawthorn Sauce, Braised Pork Knuckle with Dried Oysters & Sea Moss and who can say No to a glistening BBQ Crispy Suckling Pig?
A traditional favourite on the menu this festive season is the Steamed Clay Pot Rice with Chinese Waxed Meat. Made with Chinese sausages specially flown in from Hong Kong, this dish requires up to 45 minutes to prepare for the flavours of the vegetables, Chinese herbs and meat to infuse into the rice leaving a distinct and rich flavour.
