For decent Hokkien Mee in the KLCC area, check out Malaysia Boleh! food court at Fours Seasons Place KL. I like that the noodles was not overburnt and the sambal was quite tasty with a nice kick. I just wished the noodles had slightly more wok hei.
This round we also got to try the Wantan Mee @ RM9 and I was happy to see pun fei sau (half lean-half fat) cut of char siew given without requesting for it. Not only that, the noodles also came topped with crispy chee yau char...and that's why you can taste the fragrant lard oil in the sauce that's used to toss the noodles in. It may not be among the better ones that I've had, but overall, still a decent plate of wantan mee.
A plate of nasi lemak (MYR 3.50+) and one deep fried chicken thigh (MYR 5+) making it a total of MYR 8.50+ (MYR 9 nett). The rice is soft with a tinge of coconut milk. For my friend who do not eat much sambal, the rice can be a bit dry as this stall does not have any other curry gravy to go with the rice. For those who will mix the rice with the sambal, they won't find the rice to be dry.
Needless to say, we opted for Chili Crab with Mantou. Our crabs were mildly hot with sticky sweetness with golden crispy mantou buns on the side. There’s no better way to dive straight into this than to simply use our fingers to ensure full finger-licking sensations.

My boy, who is a big scallop fan, loved the seared scallops (he had two!) - plump and juicy, served with butter corn miso foam with bottarga and the crispiest spinach tempura. So delicious! The scallops were sweet tasting and fresh, making them perfect for a carpaccio dish. The thinly sliced raw scallops were topped with orange segments, wild rocket and yuzu dressing.
Mango to Tango is an amazing mix of Silver Tequila, Yellow Chartreuse, Mango, Honey, Fresh Lime Juice and Fresh Egg White. It's one of their MARINI’S SIGNATURE COCKTAILS and it tastes pretty good. Besides that, since its Ladies' night on Wednesday. We were served with free cocktails. Hooray!!/

The chef from 1 Michelin Star Buona Terra takes over the Mandarin Grill. I muse over why these culinary events are great for local gourmands and our food scene.
Mandarin Grill’s reopening successfully introduces modern twists on Italian classics. Cacio e pepe with sea urchin deserves praise, as does the beef rending cappelletti, which adds local flair to the restaurant’s repertoire.
Reasons to visit Mandarin Grill at Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur: beautiful setting; exciting new menu incorporating local ingredients; a ladies’ day deal not to be missed.
One of the must try menu at Curate. The Mussels Asiano is heavenly where the generous portion of mussels is beautifully steamed with Coconut, lemongrass, Chilis and the aromatic thai basil. The dish is superb with the appetizing broth and completed with the hint of spiciness in it.

Inspired from Jalan Hang Lekir’s Oloiya, the local meat jerky artisan who made his start selling orange juice. In this cocktail, the orange liqueur from the Grand Marnier resembles the original juice business while that piece of bah kwa take after the current meat jerky business. The aroma of the cocktail complemented well with the smokiness burnt bah kwa.

We were impressed with Kafei Dian, and will go back soon. Nice staff, pleasant surroundings, and good food and coffee at a decent price (RM50).
Nothing much memorable here, except the morning kopitiam vibes. Kopi is good though.
The Penang Fried Kuey Teow was pretty tasty. It would have been da bomb if it had the slightly charred, burned taste that I fancy but its no big deal, it was yummy either way. The dish was a combination of the usual items – the noodles + sprouts + prawns + fishcakes.
When you’re here, don’t miss out their signature Baos which comes with a variety of toppings such as Soft Shell Crab Bao, Pork Bao, Lamb Bao and many more. Combinate any of these topping with their soft and fluffy Baos makes up for one delightful mean!
Heck, this place is worth visiting just for the environment alone.

Well, I can’t remember the last time I did a nightlife tip! It’ll take me a while to remember how to write these. Very rare in the first place, then fatherhood really wrecked my nights out… anyway I had the pleasure of visiting The Attic, a bar near the Ghost Lane.
Reasons to visit The Attic Bar: Authentic pork-free Italian food presented by DOP Concept in tandem with speciality cocktails. The Negronis, the pesto and the tiramisu were particularly good. Go at sunset to catch great views of the city at twilight and watch the sun drop behind the roofscape of Chinatown.
Spiedini Skewered meats of juicy chicken legs and tender lamb for carnivore lovers.
If you like salted Egg, then this dish is for you. Every mouth you take, you will be to taste it. The pasta was served with 5 or 6 pieces of boneless chicken. Food was tasty and from the looks of it, it’s can instagramble restaurant.
We really liked Malaya Garden, as the staff were professional, attentive (they noted the little one would find the macaroni cheese too spicy – maybe not, but we didn’t risk it), and friendly, the food was of a high standard, the decor is fun – oh, and I almost forgot that the coffee is delicious, if perhaps a little environmentally unfriendly.
A must-try is our Signature Coconut Bread Loaf, made with fresh coconut milk via the tangzhong method. Fluffiness and captivating aromas are guaranteed in every bite. The flavours of coconut are amplified with a good slather of silky kaya, prepared fresh daily using traditional ways. The soft-boiled eggs? Well, they are full of surprises, too.
We relished into these decadent desserts which were delightful. The cakes and coffees though were made match in heaven.
We had only coffee that day as we have other errands that day, and left by 11am. It is a really, really pretty cafe if you asked us
[Pork-free] What is old is new. Light Capture Café transforms an old building into a NY-style loft space with fire-licked walls and beams frozen in time.
Nam Heong's chicken are made with fresh kampung chicken 菜园鸡 which are poached every morning at the shop.
Set Meal: BBQ Pork + Roast Chicken + Vegetables (Bean Sprouts), 14.90 ringgit. This was your usual chicken rice, or rather chicken + pork rice, lol. I guess for a dish that cost 14.90, whatever served on the plate should be more than enough, especially when it comes with vegetables and soup on the side but 4,5 thinly sliced pork meat and 4,5 pieces of roasted chicken did not do it for me. I barely even had the time to decide whether it was good or not before it all disappeared into my tummy. I guess that explains why every table had a big plate of meat on its own because the set simple does not offer enough. As for how it tasted, the chicken rice tasted okay. For me, nothing beats the chicken/pork rice at Meng Kee ( Meng Kee Char Siew @ Shah Alam – One of the Best Char Siew Rice I’ve Tasted. ) There is nothing much I can say to describe chicken rice, lol or how different it is from one and another because they all almost taste similar but yea, the ones at Meng Kee Shah Alam is the bomb. Since I am one of those who eats chicken rice once in a blue moon, when I do get do get down to eating it – I want something really good and for me, good is at Meng Kee, till I discover another restaurant that serves awesome chicken rice.
Part of the Big Three set of establishments (inexplicably stylised as Big Txree) relatively recently opened in Menara Binjai, Kopi Pot attempts to recreate one of the traditional forms of Malaysian breakfast shop, the kopitiam. Except the price.
this is a great lunch spot.
