Bubbalicious @ Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur

I have fond memories of The Westin as we’ve performed there a few times, but this was the first time I ever dined properly at one of their award winning restaurants, Prego. Prego serves authentic Italian food, and recently acquired a new Chef. Chef Vincenzo Sirna literally just arrived on our soil couple of weeks…

Ante Kitchen & Bar Brunch Menu

The dining scene in KL has changed so much over the 3 years I’ve been here. I remember when I first arrived I was complaining about the lack of decent brunch spots, but over the past year or so the concept of “all-day-breakfast” has been lovingly embraced by the F&B industry and consumers. Truly, there’s…

Going Primal: Frittata

So the story began when I got a shock stepping on a weighing scale in my Hong Kong hotel room. I won’t tell you what it was, but safe to say it’s the highest since 2005. But of course I have already noticed that most of my dresses are getting too tight for the last…

Celestial Court All-You-Can-Eat Dim Sum

Celestial Court has been voted the Best Chinese food in Klang Valley more than once, and it’s really not surprising at all. It’s even more well-known for its offering of creative Dim Sum. Chef Ken Liew, described as person with an inquisitive mind, always eager to learn new things and thus benefiting all diners visiting…

Saturday Brunch at Mediteca, Fraser Place

If you think Mediteca sounds familiar, it’s because it’s managed by the Island Group Hospitality company which has once managed the Nero Group restaurants. Medi stands for Meditarranean, so you’ll expect various Southern European cuisine, and best still, the whole menu is dotted with porky delights. That’s right, they have only recently relaunched the menu…

Bacon and Mushroom Mini Quiches

My love for pastry can be tracked all the way back to my Uni days (that sure seems really long ago now…. almost 6 years!). I love all kinds: sweet/savoury tarts, pies, curry puffs, croissants. And it didn’t take me long to start making my own tarts and pies. But back in the days, I…

Hosting with PlateCulture: My Very Own Supper Club!

Picture this: One fine day, I’m consulting patients in my private clinic. After the last patient has left, I drove to my own restaurant where I’ll watch over my team of fabulous Chefs putting together beautiful dishes and if I feel like it, I put on the apron and make a few dishes too. When…

Spanakopita (Spinach and Feta) Turnovers

Ask any ordinary home baker what their biggest fear is and you’ll probably hear puff pastry most often. In fact, most Chefs don’t make puff pastry from scratch, as good frozen version is readily available anyway. After succeeding in shortcrust pastry, I’ve been promising myself to tackle puff pastry at home for the longest time….
