Izakaya-Style Dining: Minato Yakitori, Bandar Puteri Puchong

In Japan, izakayas are popular after-work haunts that serve alcoholic drinks and snacks, such as grilled items on skewers and small appetiser plates, finished off with a more filling portion of rice or noodles. Unlike traditional restaurants that serve course-meals, you order as you eat and the chefs prepare it a la minute – so expect to spend a substantial amount of time when dining … Continue reading Izakaya-Style Dining: Minato Yakitori, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Oodles of Noodles @ Kai Xin Restaurant, Taman Wawasan Puchong

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

Review: Ground Eatery, Bandar Puteri Puchong – Revamped Menu

Whenever S and I can’t figure out what to eat, Ground Eatery in Bandar Puteri Puchong is always a safe bet. It’s cosy, the food has never disappointed, service is friendly and the prices are reasonable for the setting. Since it was S’s birthday (and coz we hadn’t seen each other since February), dinner was in order. Like many places, the resto has implemented SOPs, … Continue reading Review: Ground Eatery, Bandar Puteri Puchong – Revamped Menu

Quarantine Meals ! – Of Dimsum, Nasi Lemak and Char Kuey Teow

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

We Ate At A Random Resto In Tokyo : Out-Of-This-World Gyoza + Fatty Hotpot

Tokyo is home to an abundance of eateries, and it’s not unusual to stumble upon a hidden gem while walking through a narrow alleyway at night. Like this one:   Heavy on the tech noir feels. I must be the worst food/travel blogger ever, because I snapped pictures of the place thinking it’d be easy to find later on Google Maps. How. Utterly. Mistaken.   Googling … Continue reading We Ate At A Random Resto In Tokyo : Out-Of-This-World Gyoza + Fatty Hotpot

Review: Durham @ FMS Ipoh – Breathing New Life To The Oldest Bar In Malaysia

Old-timers might recall FMS, possibly the oldest bar in Malaysia, with an air of nostalgia. Short for the Federal Malay States, it was first opened at Market Street in 1906 by a Hainanese immigrant, before taking up residence in a corner unit along a row of pre-war shoplots in 1923. The bar has served patrons for over a century, and was a popular haunt for … Continue reading Review: Durham @ FMS Ipoh – Breathing New Life To The Oldest Bar In Malaysia

Review: Tsukiji Sushidai Honkan @ Tsukiji Outer Market, Tokyo

On my last trip to Japan, I was fortunate enough to experience many off-the-beaten path gems, from visiting thatched-roof villages in Gokayama to strolling through one of the country’s most beautifully landscaped gardens in Kanazawa. This time around, I had a couple of days in Tokyo – the country’s modern, bustling capital. While most of it was spent on a work-related assignment, our group managed … Continue reading Review: Tsukiji Sushidai Honkan @ Tsukiji Outer Market, Tokyo
