In Hong Kong, char chan tengs are a part of everyday life – the equivalent of a Malaysian kopitiam – where you can get fast, tummy-filling, affordable meals. The menu is often an eclectic mix of local favourites like rice and noodle dishes, and Western-style fusion cuisine the likes of cheese-baked rice, grilled chicken wings and toast. Thanks to the popularity of Hong Kong culture … Continue reading Meal for One: Wong Kok Char Chan Teng, IOI Mall Puchong
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
Mention Mutiara Damansara and most will think of IKEA and The Curve – but venture further in to the housing area and you’ll find a hidden gem, tucked within a quiet suburban spot just next to the Mutiara Damansara police station. Opened two years ago, Mean Mince dishes out American fare the likes of juicy burgers, wings, onion rings and deep dish pizzas, and has … Continue reading Burgers, Wings and American Fare @ Mean Mince, Mutiara Damansara
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
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!
SMEs form a big part of the Malaysian economy, and they’re not just your tech start-ups or media agencies: they also include your neighbourhood kedai runcit and favourite hawker stall. While people are encouraged to stay home more to avoid the risk of infection, there are still ways you can help to support your local business. If you’re taking a break from cooking, for example, … Continue reading Meal For One: Beverly’s Kitchen, Taman Meranti Jaya Puchong
Hey guys! I hope you’re all doing well in spite of everything. I’ve been feeling uninspired lately. Nothing I write seems to feel right, and I can’t think of ideas. Maybe it’s burn out. I hope it’ll pass. Anyhoo, I still want to post something – so here’s a short and sweet one about brunch at Unicorn 25, a cafe at Skypod Square in Puchong, … Continue reading Brunch @ Unicorn 25, Skypod Square Puchong
