Keto Pad Kra Pow

Welcome to the fourth week of Movement Control Order in Malaysia! How are you coping so far? Have you been keeping busy with hobbies and projects? Eating lots of homecooked food? Chilling out with books, movies and Netflix (finally watching that movie you meant to catch)? Becoming a pro-gamer? No matter how you choose to…

Keto Creme Brulee (with non-Brulee Variations)

As promised, another post within the same week! And what better than a little dessert recipe? The MCO is definitely testing everyone’s patience and we really do try our best not to go out at all. As a result, I’ve become obsessed with finding out all the suppliers who can do home delivery. From vegetables,…

Tomato Braised Pork Ribs

I’ve finally stopped procrastinating and start updating this blog (Has it really been 6 months since my last post?!). I hope everyone’s doing ok, considering the scary situation we are in now, fighting the Covid-19 as a Pandemic. Here in Malaysia, we are in the third week of our Movement Control Order. We have been…

Viva Italia Sunday Brunch, Prego Westin Kuala Lumpur

There’s always this one thing I associate Italian food with: heartiness. No matter the dish, you know heart and soul is poured into creating them and the best produce are showcased. And when it comes to Italian restaurants, you really can’t go wrong with Prego at Westin Kuala Lumpur. Years ago I’d had the pleasure…

Low Carb/Keto Maitake Mushrooms with Pancetta, Chili and Egg

It’s always nice to discover new ingredients to add to my cooking repertoire. Especially now that we only eat real food at home, working with fresh ingredients is paramount. Which is why I was excited to discover a new variety of mushrooms available locally in Klang Valley: Maitake Mushrooms. Maitake mushrooms are also called the…

Chicken Liver Pâté

Are you a fan of organ meats? What is your favourite organ? In my household growing up, I’d say the first organ I’ve ever tried was Chicken Liver because we normally had a whole Chicken in our Chicken soup so it was true nose to tail eating (yes, even the head). In Sarawak, it’s also…

The Sticky Wicket, Damansara Heights

It’s been a while since I’ve been to an invited food review. And indeed, nowadays I have to be a little bit more picky in accepting these invites because of my dietary preference. So what does one do when you can only eat low carb at a group food review? Pick the items you can…

Keto Meatloaf with Mustard Caper Cream Sauce

One great thing about cooking at home is that you have the power to decide what to make; from something super simple like steak and fried eggs, to something a little bit more fancy that will wow the dinner company. For me, it depends entirely on my mood because even though I’m just as happy…

Easy Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

Ahhhh Brussels sprouts! You either hate it or love it. Appears frequently on Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner, it’s not exactly a common vegetable in Malaysia. However we are starting to see more and more grocers selling them at a reasonable price, and most of them are from Australia, so the quality is pretty good. Scarred…

Keto Shopping Guide (Non-Halal)

It has been 16 months since we embarked on a ketogenic lifestyle and I think this is the most successful way of eating by far for me. Sure, there have been instances where we gave in and have a bit of a cheat meal (especially when on vacation), but I always suffer the consequences in…
