The Latest Food Craze: Ramen Burger

Unless you have been living under the rock, or don’t use facebook (Who doesn’t? Even Frank got hooked after calling it FaceSuck for how many years…), you must have heard of the latest Food Craze in New York right now: The Ramen Burger. Created by Chef Keizo Shimamoto (who’s a certified ramen addict), the craze…

Singapore Get-away featuring Gordon Ramsay

I love spontaneity and due to the nature of my schedule, it’s hard to find time for a getaway. But I suppose I just need a little spark of motivation to make that decision and 2 weeks ago, I did precisely that. When I heard from KY that Gordon Ramsay was doing the cook-off against…

Teriyaki Salmon and Yaki Udon (Fried Udon Noodles)

I might have mentioned before that Salmon is my favourite fish. It’s not only healthy with choke full of Omega 3 fatty acids, a good source of protein, high level of vit D (good for your bones), it’s also super versatile. You don’t really have to do too much to the already flavourful flesh. Usually…

Ippudo Ramen at Pavilion KL

Happy Birthday Everyone! Today is the 7th day of Chinese New Year, also known as “Ren Ri” 人日 (Literally means Human Day). This was the day Human beings were created according to Chinese customs, and the Malaysians and Singaporeans celebrate this day with Yee Sang. I won’t be doing much eating today though after countless…

Nobu’s Miso Glazed Cod, Cha Soba (Bonus Nasu Dengaku Recipe)

When Nobu first opened up in Melbourne (this was quite a few years ago), we wasted no time to check it out as I kept hearing people waxing lyrical over the Miso Black Cod. It’s Chef Nobu Matsuhisa’s signature dish and also said to be Robert De Niro’s (he’s one of the owners of Nobu)…

Marutama Ramen

A few days ago, Time Out KL published a list of the Best Ramen in KL. Out of the 9 on the list, I’ve already been to 5 of them, some of them more than once! For someone who doesn’t even eat out much, I guess that makes me a certified Ramen addict (you probably…

Miraku @ Paradigm Mall

Miraku is a Japanese fine dining restaurant which has recently landed in Paradigm Mall. If you are from Penang and wondering why this sounds so familiar, there’s another one located at G Hotel, Penang too. Miraku, meaning “a great place”, aims to provide the art of Japanese dining for the public, especially those who wish…

Waku Waku

Waku Waku (apparently means Tremble in Japanese, can anyone clarify?) is another newish Japanese restaurant situated in Midvalley Megamall. This restaurant has been on my radar after seeing Sean‘s blog about their Nasi Lemak Jepun. Altering a traditional recipe can be risky but I applaud them for giving it a go. Though I think my…

Mentaiko (明太子) Pasta with Mushrooms

I first learned about Mentaiko from Cheesie’s blog. Her obsession with Mentaiko is rather endearing and this entry made me chuckle and envious at the same time. Since then I’ve been seeing Mentaiko everywhere on blogs and restaurant menus. Lately though, Mentaiko Pasta seems to be all the craze around here and after seeing yet…

Cha Soba

There are times I fire up the laptop and open up WordPress but stares at it for hours without knowing what to write. Similarly, there are days, though not often, I’d stare at my pantry not knowing what to cook. I’m blaming the weather (the weather gets a lot of blaming from me I must…
