Shop Till You Drop At Pop The Arcade @ Jaya One, PJ

Back when I was still working at my old office in PJ, I used to drop by at Pop@ Jaya One for some retail therapy over my lunch break, or sometimes after work. The artsy space, which was created to help local entrepreneurs showcase their products, was a treasure trove of one-of-a-kind items, from bargain clothing to handmade trinkets and souvenirs. Since working from home, … Continue reading Shop Till You Drop At Pop The Arcade @ Jaya One, PJ

Korean Soy Garlic Chicken Wings @ K-Fry, 1 Utama

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

Chewy Japanese Noodles! @ Miyatake Sanuki Udon, ISETAN 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Petaling Jaya

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

Satisfy Your Pork Cravings @ Truly Wine, The Starling Mall

Since the MCO started, I’ve been bringing homemade lunches to work, so I haven’t really had much chance to explore The Starling, the neighbourhood mall near my office. My ex-boss asked V and I out for lunch recently, so we dropped by to see what was good.  We settled for Truly Wine, where they offer pork-heavy set lunches and fusion fare. Wide selection for RM19++ … Continue reading Satisfy Your Pork Cravings @ Truly Wine, The Starling Mall

Unexpectedly Good Food @ Honey Bunny, 3 Damansara

While looking for a quiet spot for lunch near the office, I came across Honey Bunny at 3 Damansara. Touted as the ‘cutest beer pong bar in Malaysia’, it doubles as a restaurant – although I wouldn’t say it’s the family-friendly kind if you come in the evenings. They have bunnies (?) who accompany guests to drink and play games, so if you’re into that … Continue reading Unexpectedly Good Food @ Honey Bunny, 3 Damansara

Dim Sum & Wantan Mee @ Soon Hing SS2, Petaling Jaya

There’s nothing like a quintessential Chinese breakfast to start the day – that means dimsum and noodles! You can get both at Soon Hing Duck-licious & Dim Sum Restaurant in SS2, Petaling Jaya. The Moomins and I were in the area after a doctor’s appointment, and we decided to dine in. While quarantine restrictions were lifted last month, many people are understandably cautious – I think … Continue reading Dim Sum & Wantan Mee @ Soon Hing SS2, Petaling Jaya

Nasi Campur Murah @ D Hamodal Cafe, Petaling Jaya

My colleague V has been raving about this place in Petaling Jaya that sells affordable and tasty Malay dishes – so we went to try it out recently! Dubbed D Hamodal Cafe, the cafeteria-style establishment serves nasi campur (mixed rice – ie a variety of different dishes that you can pick and mix to pair with rice). It is popular among the factory and office … Continue reading Nasi Campur Murah @ D Hamodal Cafe, Petaling Jaya

Pokok KL @ Mahsa University, Petaling Jaya – The Cafe In A Glasshouse

Tucked within the grounds of Mahsa University in Petaling Jaya, Pokok KL is still hot on the list of most Instagrammable cafes despite having opened over a year ago. The cafe is housed in a quaint brick and glass building, with floor to ceiling glass windows that allow for plenty of natural sunlight to filter in. Add to that an avenue of shady trees leading … Continue reading Pokok KL @ Mahsa University, Petaling Jaya – The Cafe In A Glasshouse
