Review: BBQ Plaza, IOI Mall Puchong

Love barbecue and hotpot? You can have the best of both at BBQ Plaza, a popular mookata chain with various outlets across Malaysia. Originally from Thailand, mookata (or mu kratha – literally pan/skillet pork) combines a Korean-style raised barbecue plate with a Chinese-style hotpot on the edges. BBQ Plaza is one of the pioneers of this style of cooking in Malaysia, although now it’s quite easy to … Continue reading Review: BBQ Plaza, IOI Mall Puchong

Review: Porky Good Ribs @ Down To Bones, OUG

It’s the Moomikin’s birthday! We asked her what she’d like to have for dinner – and she suggested Down to Bones at OUG. Apparently she saw the resto while passing by the area and was keen to try out the place. So off we went! Originally a pop-up stall that operated on weekends, business was so good that they decided to open in a proper … Continue reading Review: Porky Good Ribs @ Down To Bones, OUG

Sukishi Japanese Buffet, IOI Mall Puchong

It’s rainy season here in Malaysia. What better time than now to tuck into steamy hot and comforting hotpot?  One of my frequent haunts whenever I crave hotpot is at Sukishi Japanese Buffet, IOI Mall Puchong.

Food Review: Fresh, Porky Delights @ Euro Deli, Damansara Kim

Drop by one of the older pub-diner style establishments in the Damansara Kim neighbourhood, Euro Deli.  Specialising in porky dishes, the restaurant has a deli area where you can buy meat products.

Making Lamb Chops + Fried Oyster Mushroom

It was my day off and I was feeling hardworking over lunchtime so I decided to make my own food. I don’t cook often because the kitchen is my mum’s domain and I always get shooed out for ‘making a mess’ (and then she complains that I don’t know how to cook). Marinated spicy lamb chops from Carrefour. Can’t really go wrong with that, right? … Continue reading Making Lamb Chops + Fried Oyster Mushroom

Ipoh Food Trip: Tuck Kee Roast Duck + Yong Liew

Scenery of the Titiwangsa mountain range while on the way back to Ipoh. Had to visit my grandma in the hospital. Lunch at Tuck Kee restaurant @Pasir Pinji once we arrived in Ipoh. Despite the late hour (about 2pm) there was still a long line queuing up outside for their famous roast chicken/pork and duck rice. The inside of the restaurant is air-conditioned. We ordered roasties for … Continue reading Ipoh Food Trip: Tuck Kee Roast Duck + Yong Liew
