Le Cordon Bleu Malaysia Workshop – Charlotte Vanilla Raspberries

There is something to be said about the physical act of creating or making something with your own hands. It is definitely a rewarding experience, especially in this day and age where everything has become so convenient. Call me overdramatic, but I do enjoy the long process of creating a kitchen masterpiece. The art of…

Rendez-vous New Menu with Chef Benjamin

If you ask me to list my Top 5 current favourite restaurant in Klang Valley, Rendez-vous would definitely on the list. It’s not just that I’m a Francophile, as mentioned in my previous post of the very same restaurant; but there’s a new face in Rendez-vous kitchen and the whole menu has been given a…

Topshelf, TTDI (Revisit)

Time really waits for no man. I remember saying to myself following my first visit to Topshelf that we definitely want to come back again. Who would have thought that one year could pass by so quickly? Chef Christopher Yee has kindly extended an invitation for us to sample the new menu, and I was…

Rendez-vous, Traditional French Dining in Bangsar

Klang Valley is definitely not short of French restaurants; whether you are after a date, or a casual family outing, there will be one to suit your need. When it comes to European cuisines, I have to admit I’ve always had a soft spot for the French. It might be an irrational one (blame it…

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…

Topshelf, TTDI

Taman Tun Dr Ismail is well known for its many watering holes (including the infamous Sid’s, of course) and hipster coffee joints. But behind the busy Lorong Rahim Kajai 14, there is a lovely French restaurant called Topshelf, run by Chef Christopher and Hairenna, a friendly duo who is passionate about food and hospitality. I have…

Café Café, French Fare at Its Best

After residing in London for years, Ben Yeong and Toto Ooi returned to Malaysia 12 years ago and opened Café Café. Back then, fine-dining restaurants in Klang Valley were few and far in between. That was to change. Café Café is as romantic as it gets, with a combination of old world charm and a…

KL’s Little Paris: Maison Francaise

If you have been following my social media updates, you might have noticed that I have started writing articles for The Malay Mail’s Weekend Runner. Who would have known a little food blogging could have gotten me here? I have many people to thank, and you know who you are. Meanwhile, here’s the full article…

Croisette Cafe Bangsar: Set Menu Promotion

I’ve had wanted to visit Croisette Cafe for the longest time ever since I’ve read CK‘s reviews with really pretty pictures and authentic sounding repertoire. When the invitation came to me for the new July Set Menu review, I saw it as a great opportunity to finally try it out. This quaint little cafe is…
