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!
My favourite udon joints seem to be closing one by one. First it was Marufuku Udon in Jaya One, then recently, Hanamaru Udon in Sunway Pyramid. 😦 Thankfully, I’ve found a new place to satisfy my chewy noodle cravings – and it’s close to my new workplace! Miyatake Sanuki Udon has roots in Kagawa, Japan, where they have restaurants and their own noodle factory. They opened … Continue reading Chewy Japanese Noodles! @ Miyatake Sanuki Udon, ISETAN 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya
I’ve lived in Puchong nearly all my life, but I still haven’t been to the Ayer Hitam Forest Reserve. It’s a popular hiking spot on weekends, and there are usually loads of cars parked near the entrance. Just next to it is a row of single storey shoplots with a few cafes and eateries where visitors can go to for breakfast / brunch / lunch … Continue reading Oodles of Noodles @ Kai Xin Restaurant, Taman Wawasan Puchong
Hey guys! It’s technically Day 51 of the Movement Control Order here in Malaysia. I will be resuming work at the office tomorrow. After nearly 2 months, it’s time to say hello again to traffic jams. Originally, the MCO was supposed to be lifted on May 12 – but the government has already allowed businesses to reopen from May 4. It’s all very confusing: on … Continue reading Quarantine Meals ! – Of Dimsum, Nasi Lemak and Char Kuey Teow
The humble yet versatile dumpling is beloved all over the world in its many forms, shapes and flavours. In some parts of the world, such as China, it is an ancient cuisine that has been around for thousands of years. I absolutely love dumplings and can eat them every day. But unlike many other Chinese households that consider dumplings a staple, my family does not … Continue reading Around The World in Dumplings
Originally from the eastern province of Chaozhou in China, the Teochew people are now spread across the world – including Malaysia where there is a significant diaspora. Its cuisine has influences from the southern Fujian province as well as Canton (Guangdong), with an emphasis on seafood and vegetables as well as a more delicate taste as compared to cuisine from other Chinese regions. Some popular Teochew … Continue reading Review: Teochew-Style Cuisine @ Teow Chew Meng, SS2 Petaling Jaya
You might recall a recent blog post where I visited Mamee Jonker House in Melaka – a museum/resto/themed space dedicated to all things Mamee. Blog post here. I thoroughly enjoyed their creative dishes, which utilised Mamee noodles as the main carbo, spruced up with various ingredients. The photos from the story I did for work were so good (thanks to N@Hubs!), the Editor jokingly said … Continue reading Review: Mamee Jonker House 163 Retail Park Mont Kiara – Needs More Mamee
