Food Review: MK Hotpot, Sri Petaling Is My New Favourite Place

I almost didn’t get to try this place. Glad I did!  C and I were food hunting in Sri Petaling, and like the indecisive people we are, walked back and forth between several hotpot outlets (one was closed, another was too expensive, the other had a limited menu, etc.). After what must have been 40 minutes, we finally settled on MK Hotpot, a new resto … Continue reading Food Review: MK Hotpot, Sri Petaling Is My New Favourite Place

Review: Ho Kee Seafood Steamboat Restaurant, Bandar Puchong Jaya

It’s been raining a lot lately – and what better way to warm up than with a nice. bubbling hotpot dinner? Braving the downpour, we drove to Ho Kee Seafood Steamboat Restaurant in Bandar Puchong Jaya, on the recommendation of a friend of Moo’s. The place is pretty popular, judging from the Saturday night crowd. The ground level is air conditioned, but we didn’t want … Continue reading Review: Ho Kee Seafood Steamboat Restaurant, Bandar Puchong Jaya

Tucking Into Chanko Nabe (Sumo Hotpot) @ Saganobori, Ginza, Tokyo

I was going through some old posts from my Japan trip last year and realised that I missed out writing on this. It was our last night in Tokyo, and as appreciation for our work filming from 3AM – 1PM lol (we were doing a story on the Toyosu Fish Market), our POC / guide Ken-san picked out a place for dinner. It turned out … Continue reading Tucking Into Chanko Nabe (Sumo Hotpot) @ Saganobori, Ginza, Tokyo

Review: Hong Kong-Style Hotpot @ Bone & Pot, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Puchong-ites seem to have a love affair with hotpots – just drop by Bandar Puteri Puchong or Bandar Puchong Jaya, and you will be spoilt for choice with the number of establishments serving the specialty. One of these places is Bone and Pot. Even among hotpots, there are a variety of different styles, from Ma La (Sichuan) to Sukiyaki (Japanese). Bone & Pot touts itself … Continue reading Review: Hong Kong-Style Hotpot @ Bone & Pot, Bandar Puteri Puchong

Review: Two Pesos Hotpot @ Bandar Puchong Jaya, Puchong

It was a scorching hot day but that didn’t stop C and I from having hotpot for lunch at Two Pesos, a hotpot specialist restaurant in Bandar Puchong Jaya, Puchong. While the brand was founded by a Taiwanese couple, the story goes that they met and got married in Boracay, hence the resto’s Filipino-sounding name. The resto’s interior is cheerful and decked out in bright … Continue reading Review: Two Pesos Hotpot @ Bandar Puchong Jaya, Puchong

Review: Mo-Mo Paradise @ J’s Gate Dining, Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur

One of my favourite things to have is shabu-shabu and sukiyaki – so I was thrilled to try out Mo-Mo Paradise, a famous Japanese chain that specialises in the cuisine. Recently opened at J’s Gate Dining in Lot 10, Kuala Lumpur, this is the first Mo-Mo Paradise outlet in Malaysia, focusing on an all-you-can-eat concept with fresh, high quality ingredients. The modern dining space features … Continue reading Review: Mo-Mo Paradise @ J’s Gate Dining, Lot 10 Kuala Lumpur

Food Review: Chiang Mai Mookata & Thai Street Food@ Skypod Square Puchong

Moo-kata, or Thai style barbecue, is all the rage these days: judging by the increasing number of outlets popping up in and around the Klang Valley. What I like about it is that you can barbecue AND boil your food on the unique stove at the same time! My first experience with it was in Phuket in 2015. I. Was. Hooked. Even today, I can … Continue reading Food Review: Chiang Mai Mookata & Thai Street Food@ Skypod Square Puchong

Steamboat Buffet Below RM40 in KL @ Shasa Shabu Restaurant, Cheras

It’s been awhile since our last Powerpuff Girls meetup (my ex-colleagues and I called ourselves that, haha!), and since it was inconvenient for H to drive, P and I braved an hour of horrendous Saturday night traffic (why don’t you stay at home, other people!?) to Shasa Shabu Restaurant, all the way in Cheras – which, according to H, serves pretty decent steamboat buffet fare … Continue reading Steamboat Buffet Below RM40 in KL @ Shasa Shabu Restaurant, Cheras
