Maison Francaise: A Revisit

Following a pleasant visit to Maison Francaise back in 2013 (geez how time flies), I didn’t hesitate before accepting another invitation to dine at the romantic mansion again. Chef Thierry Le Baut has recently taken over the kitchen and needless to say has brought some changes to the menu. Let’s take a look at the…

Monte’s by LYN, Bangsar Shopping Center

Even though Bangsar Shopping Center is relatively close to me, I don’t often choose to dine there. But this is probably going to change soon after my visit to Monte’s, a restaurant that’s been serving quality Western cuisine for over a decade now. It’s been under my radar until I was invited to a special…

El Sid’s, Medan Damansara

When it comes to pubs in Kuala Lumpur, most people would be familiar with this particular group of British pubs called Sid’s. Yes, I’m highly biased of course because my other half’s involvement but I guess that’s beside the point. Well, El Sid’s is another outlet under the same group and it’s a total different…

Viva El Sabor at Eccucino, Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur

I’ve always been fond of Spanish food for its vibrancy, be it colours, spices, and a wide spectrum of delicious ingredients. From delectable small dishes (tapas) to the decadent Paella, not to mention my favourite type of desert: churros; how to say no to such a feast? I don’t know about you but I absolutely…

Gobo Chit Chat’s Seafood Buffet Dinner

Diners in KL are spoilt for choice when it comes to Buffets as there are plenty of quality ones out there. But if you are into Seafood, then you should not miss out on Gobo Chit Chat’s Seafood Buffet at Traders Hotel during Fridays or Saturdays. We sure had a roaring good time stuffing ourselves…

Nook’s MIGF 2014 Menu

It’s always a pleasure receiving invitations from Aloft Kuala Lumpur be it a review session, or music event. You might have notice that I am there quite often (several times a month, in fact) and that is because I always enjoyed their great hospitality. A makan session at Nook, especially, is something I won’t miss….

Sunday Curry Tiffin Lunch, Colonial Cafe @ Hotel Majestic

I’ve long heard about the Colonial Cafe at the beautiful Hotel Majestic but yet to pay a visit until couple of Sundays ago when we were invited to dine and enjoy their Sunday Curry Tiffin Lunch. Sunday Tiffin is basically synonymous with over indulging of curries, vegetables and rice. This tradition is believed to begun…

Cape Mentelle Wine Pairing Degustation Lunch, Tanzini.

I usually have a rule of not drinking before the sunset. But that rule was well and truly broken couple of weeks ago at a very special wine pairing degustation lunch hosted by Cape Mentelle. I’ve always been fond of wines of Margaret River, so this wasn’t something I would want to miss. So despite…

Mediterranean Fish Stew

Lately I’ve been having cravings for fish, but instead of pan-frying a fillet and call it a day, I decided to try something a little bit different and decadent, so I went with a fish stew. There are many variations of fish stew, but interestingly most involves more than one type of seafood. I don’t…

Poached Salmon in Coconut Milk and My appearance on Bella NTV7

Yesterday was a very important milestone for me: my first live TV interview and performance! When I opened the email sent by the producer of Bella NTV7, my heart literally skipped a beat. At first I thought it would just be an interview, but they also requested for me to sing as well as demonstrate…
