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.

Wide selection for RM19++ … Continue reading Satisfy Your Pork Cravings @ Truly Wine, The Starling Mall

Review: Thai Hou Sek, 1 Utama – Thai Food With A Twist

You need to understand Cantonese to get the cheeky wit behind Thai Hou Sek‘s name. Tai is a homonym for ‘very/too much’, and hou sek means delicious.

Review: Elsie’s Kitchen @ Happy Mansion Section 17 Petaling Jaya

On the recommendation of AD, hunting for lunch spots brought us to Elsie’s Kitchen at Happy Mansion in PJ. Tucked in a corner, the place is still new and still has congratulatory garlands decorating its entrance. A very Instagrammable swing and flower background.

JW’s … Continue reading Review: Elsie’s Kitchen @ Happy Mansion Section 17 Petaling Jaya
