Reasons to visit Meat the Porkers Plaza Damansara: lovely new setting with lots of natural light and views of the treetops; possibly the only Indian restaurant in Malaysia to serve pork; must-tries are The Porkers Naan, Tandoori Pork Ribs, Siew Yoke Biryani and the Goan Pork Vindaloo Mantou. Do allow room for a fruit lassi too.
I absolutely love the Fish Amritsari Tacos – seabass marinated in ginger, garlic, carom seeds and other spices and gram flour, lightly battered and then fried till crisp. A popular street food item in India, the fried fish is served on a tortilla, topped with tomato salsa and drizzled with a special sauce. Eat this immediately when served, before the tortilla gets soggy – the fried fish is insanely good!
Tonight's 5-course wine dégustation menu is priced at RM330.00++ per person. Considering Soleil's refined ambience and impeccable table service, the price is very affordable to people who appreciate fine wines. In fact, Soleil aims to make quality wines more accessible to the average customer.
Every year my best friends and I will select one good restaurant to celebrate our Christmas gift exchange, therefore this year we have decided to choose this...
Considering Soleil's refined ambience and impeccable table service, the price is very affordable to people who appreciate fine wines.
French Toast is kinda like must have for me. Love the brioche toast as it is done to perfection. sauce is not too sweet yet just nice.
Cappuccino was rich & have bold coffee taste that it goes perfectly well with the Burnt Cheesecake. Cappuccino @ RM 11
BIRCH BENEDICT RM26 The eggs were poached to perfection, where the egg white was firm and bouncy while the yolk was runny. The pull pork was another surprise. It was incredibly flavourful, with a hint of spiciness that tantalizes your taste bud. The fresh and crunchy greens were a great contrast to the soft and chewy texture of the pulled chicken.
Can't recall the name of this dish, but it's shakshuka. I would recommend this dish to anyone who loves a hearty breakfast. With the warm and toasty eggs and savoury tomato sauce and other ingredients cooked into what seemed like a thick broth, this dish is sure to fill your tummy despite its deceivingly small portion. Use the bread to soak up the awesome eggs and tomato concoction so you don't leave any behind.
Overall, i find the food and drinks and yummy, kind of wish the portion is tad bigger though
Baked egg tarts... must try!
Royal Canton's promotion is happening now on every Public Holiday, Saturday & Sunday from 10:30am to 2:30pm - Adult RM 48Nett, Senior RM 38Nett (60 years & above) & Children RM 28Nett (4 yrs to 10 yrs).
You'll be NUTS not to try this... so good! Assorted nuts and Yunnan ham.
Gin Rik Sha has definitely redefined Indian cuisine with their modern interpretation.
总的来说，Gin Rik Sha确实是一家不错的印度餐厅。
Verdict: To be honest, Indian cuisine most probably one of my least favourite food but I left gin rik sha feeling satiated the food we had was good enough to contemplate returning to check out the remainder of the menu.
Available from now to 8 February 2020, Wan Chun Ting's Chinese New Year Set Menu features three 9-course unique menus for a table of 10 persons with free flow of premium Chinese tea & a Bottle of selected wine. There are the: 2020 Prosperity Set Menu RM 2388Nett Per Table 2020 Fortune Set Menu RM 2688Nett Per Table 2020 Wealth Set Menu RM 2888Nett Per Table
Next, Wok Fried Raddish Cake with Shrimp Paste RM18. Probably one of the best Stir-Fried Loh Bak Gou we have tried thus far. Wok-hei loaded aside, what makes this stir-fried loh bak gou stands out is the burnt bits that coated to the cubes of moist raddish cake – something that we always look for in this dum sum to get that extra smoky flavours.
We had the Sliced abalone with bean curd and garden greens (RM78) which come with a whole baby abalone, braised to perfection.
What do we like about Frangipaani KL? -The pani puri – great first experience of trying -The ambience and attentive service
There are many cubes of cottage cheese in the Palak Paneer (spinach cottage cheese dish). To my surprise, this Palak Paneer is quite spicy so I took half home and ate half with one quarter Naan. Three quarters Naan, I took home. I like to eat Palak Paneer but normally they are not as spicy as this one.
Racheado Fish Fry - MYR 36+ (6% SST = MYR 38.16 nett). The word recheado means stuffed in Portuguese. Recheado masala is a red paste which is often used as stuffing in fishes like pomfret and mackerel. Here it is used to marinate and coat the 3 pieces of mackerel (the fish tastes like mackerel but I did not confirm it with the restaurant).
Overall verdict: Food is not bad. It is my first time having Sri Lankan food so I don’t have a comparable review to make. I think the flavours are very similar to Indian food. So if you like briyani rice and chicken curry, you’d probably enjoy this.

Reasons to visit: Nomi Tomo is the only speciality sake bar in Kuala Lumpur and you are sure to find some variation that you will absolutely love; if you’ve never had sparkling sake you are seriously missing out; the quintessentially Japanese atmosphere makes you forget that you are in the heart of KL
When comes to Friday night, it is really indeed no idea where to hit on for drinking area, till I was recommended to this cool new place by my friend. Nomi Tomo Sake Bar is located in the heart of Bukit Damansara, KL. A bit of like speakseasy bar as where it is located on the 3rd floor of a shop lot. Below is one of the famous cafe – Huckleberry.
Just in case you may get confused after rounds and rounds of Sake tasting, the wall of Nomi Tomo is filled with the chart of flavours and pricing for each sake. It definitely eases the process of choosing your favourite sake here!
Beef Brisket Toasties (Rm 38) Slow-roasted Black Angus beef brisket, mozzarella, sharp cheddar, dijon mustard, mayo sandwiched in between the country sourdough bread and served with pickles. I took the first bite and I was immediately wow-ed by it. There were melted fats interlacing with the tender Angus beef brisket. Super delicious! Till now, I couldn’t forget how melty and delicious it was.
We initially wanted to have just sourdough as we weren’t in the mood for anything sweet-related treat early in the morning but the Classic German Pancake (Bismarck) looked so tempting it made us order one. And aww-my-gawd. Glad that we ordered this. It tastes soooooo good.
Reasons to visit Smith Breads & Cafe: A great place to feel normal again with outstanding coffee, homemade bread and satisfying breakfast items. Must try the Beef Brisket Toastie.
Reasons to visit Grandmother’s Table, Sunday Brunch Nero Nero: A full array of food surprises inspired by the grandmothers of southern Italy rendered by the capable hands of Head Chef Giuseppe Lioce.
Reasons to try the Nero Nero Menu: authentic Italian cuisine; seriously one of the best Italian restaurants in Kuala Lumpur; not one, but TWO Italian chefs; fresh pasta made daily; just try everything and make sure to leave room for dessert, or don’t leave room but order dessert anyway!
Reason to visit: home-crafted Italian dishes from the heart, superb service, great atmosphere.
Verdict: Our dining at Nizza was truly a luxuriant and pampered experience. It was everything from food to ambience that made this unforgettable. Definitely a perfect option when one feels like splurging on some fine dining experience.
Reasons to visit Nizza restaurant: great hideaway for a nice dinner meeting or even a romantic night out; try a Gold Standard Negroni as a pre-dinner drink by the pool; the bread is fab!; must order the Veloute de Petit Pois, the Vivaneau Grenobloise, the Confit de Canard, don’t miss the cheese platter and save room for a couple of desserts!
For mains, we shared the Longe d'agneau (RM125), lamb loin cooked sous vide with fava beans, beetroot moutabel, heirloom vegetables and thyme jus. Beautifully pink and tender.
Cream Tart tastes wonderful as usual, and Summerkid loves their plain croissant.
If you're looking for some fine French pastries and European styled breads, made with top quality ingredients, look no further.....but be prepared to pay! ^_* Don't leave without trying the flaky and buttery croissant, the luscious opera cake and the oozy lemon curd tart...my top favourites. If I live or work in the area (they have another smaller outlet in Atria Shopping Gallery), I certainly won't be able to stop at one visit....but alas, I'm so far away. According to their Facebook, we can get a limited range of their products at O'coffee Clubs in KLCC (Kinokuniya), Mont Kiara and The Gardens (Robinsons). To get my fix, I may just have to visit the nearest one to me in KLCC to see what they offer! ;)
The highlight of the buffet spread is Chef Dato' Ismail's most famous creation, the Ayam Golek Istana, a royal dish traditionally served in the palace. The chicken was beautifully tender, and is complemented by the well-spiced sauce.

Reasons to visit the Seafood Buffet Sofitel KL – Taste of Oceana: a good quality buffet experience; definitely one for seafood lovers but a good variety of other dishes too to suit many tastes.
Verdict: The food was certainly not shabby but did not mind blowing either. The food portion exceed expectation for the price paid and I thought they could be more generous with that. I’m regret to tell that our dining experience did not manage to lure us for a second visit.
Hubby's favourite was the Kao Soi Gai (RM28), a Northern Thai chicken curry rice noodles dish, topped with crunchy pickled Chiang Mai mustard greens. The flavorful, vibrant broth is thick, creamy and spicy, beautifully balanced by the pickled greens and a squeeze of lime.
Reasons to visit Krung Thep’s Noodle Bar KL: A varied noodle and small plates lunchtime menu; could enjoy a single dish alone, or two people could share 2-3 small plates and leave happily well-fed; an attractive setting that is a fresh mix of traditional materials and bold art; varied indoor/outdoor seating options.
The place is so so classy.
Reasons to visit Blonde at The Republik: chic setting with friendly staff; contemporary international cuisine that is presented beautifully; must try the Dutch-style pancakes to break from the norm, poached eggs with beef brisket, pumpkin and watermelon salads, lamb belly, duck and do save room for the deconstructed pavlova.
Pizza at MYR 35++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 40.6 nett) and a glass of slow pressed pineapple drink at MYR 15++ (MYR 17.40 nett). The pizza is tasty but I ate only 2 slices and that was enough for me so I kept the other 6 slices for another day. The pineapple drink is to help me digest the pizza.
Chef Andy Choy (Chateau Dionne) said the theme for The CKT Supper club this month was ‘Italy’ and not Italian, otherwise we would be better off at a true blue Italian resto. He’s being honest, and frankly, it did feel more like Malaysian fusion with the teeny bits of Italian accents, what with Wagyu with rendang sauce, and roti tissue inspired paper thin bread with Western ‘dhall’ made with split peas instead of chuck peas, and all.
The theme will be Italian next March with Andy in a collaboration with chef Kenny on March 27th . You can find out then what CKT really stands for then! Held at Chateau Dionne and priced at RM280, seats are very limited so book early!
Reasons to visit Château Dionne KL: a true degustation menu complete with artisanal bread, canapes, amuse bouche, palate cleanser and petit four; attractive setting; classical French cuisine; flexibility with the degustation menus allowing guests to curate something to their desires.
Reasons to visit JungleBird KL: Rum! The Cubano, real food, epic cocktails, awesome conversations, mini staycation.
Reasons to visit: an extensive collection of rum accompanied by knowledgeable and friendly bar staff; don’t miss trying Malaysia’s classic cocktail and the bar’s namesake the Jungle Bar, and for those serious about their booze a rum tasting flight is highly recommended.
Reasons to drink Jameson: Incredibly smooth and flavourful Irish whiskey that’s great to drink on its own, with an ice cube or mixed with ginger ale and lime. And if you don’t like a smoky taste, even better. It’s also very reasonably priced – especially at the duty free.
And this time, we comes up with the three tier hi – tea where the first tier offers you with the addictive taste of the Cara Berlauk Udang, a common Malaysian favourite. There are made from combination of rice flour, flour, and corn flour with added condiments such as coconut milk, fried onions, dried shrimps with it. They are such an addictive and delicious savoury bite to go.
By now, if you've not had a taste of Kampong Kravers' famous Karipaps (RM3.50 - Chicken & Egg or Sardine) and Samosas, I suggest you do so immediately.
