Korean Soy Garlic Chicken Wings @ K-Fry, 1 Utama

As a self-professed fried chicken connoisseur, I’m always on the lookout for the ultimate golden bird – whether it’s tangy and slathered in buffalo sauce, hand breaded with 11 herbs and spices, brined in buttermilk for maximum flavour… the possibilities are endless. I do, however, have a soft spot for Korean fried chicken. Maybe it’s the double-frying that makes it ultra crispy. Maybe it’s the … Continue reading Korean Soy Garlic Chicken Wings @ K-Fry, 1 Utama

Ginger Wine Noodles: Imbi Pasar Mee Halia @ ICC Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

Here in Malaysia, wet markets are more than just places to get fresh ingredients and household essentials – they’re social hubs where people gather to shop or meet friends and neighbours (well, pre-pandemic, at least). This is why you will often find kopitiams and food courts close to or located within a wet market facility. Pasar Baru Bukit Bintang (also known as Imbi Market) was … Continue reading Ginger Wine Noodles: Imbi Pasar Mee Halia @ ICC Pudu, Kuala Lumpur

Burgers, Wings and American Fare @ Mean Mince, Mutiara Damansara

Spices – Indian-Style Claypot Rice (Sattisoru) @ Restoran Try To Eat, Rawang

It usually contains chopped pieces of chicken, salted fish, chives and … Continue reading Spices – Indian-Style Claypot Rice (Sattisoru) @ Restoran Try To Eat, Rawang

I Went For A Solo Buffet @ Rocku Yakiniku, 1 Utama

If you can’t already tell, I am somewhat of a loner. While I enjoy good company in small doses and in intimate settings, large crowds give me anxiety, and I need lots of me-time to recuperate after an extended period of socializing. This is probably why I’m comfortable dining alone: I’ve never really understood why other people would give me the ‘but it’s so sad!’ … Continue reading I Went For A Solo Buffet @ Rocku Yakiniku, 1 Utama

Brunch & Japanese Fare @ Buranchi, Bandar Puteri Puchong

I’ve driven past Buranchi a couple of times before, but never tried it until recently. Suprisingly, it was the Moo who suggested we grab lunch there (she isn’t keen on dining out because of the high number of coronavirus cases here in Selangor). Buranchi is Japanese for brunch, a fitting name for a cafe that specialises in all-day breakfasts and Japanese and Western fusion cuisine. … Continue reading Brunch & Japanese Fare @ Buranchi, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Tonkatsu by Ma Maison is my favourite place to get authentic tonkatsu. I’ve dined at their Publika and USJ Main Place branches before, but never at the original in 1Utama (don’t ask me why – I just never did it lol). Recently I went back to the office to pack, and since the mall is nearby, I stopped by for lunch. It so happened that … Continue reading Tonkatsu by Ma Maison, 1 Utama Celebrates 7th Anniversary – 50% Off All Sets!
