Meal for Two: S’mores, Bangsar South

The Moomin’s eye doctor is located at Nexus Bangsar South, so I’ve been hanging around the neighbourhood a lot lately (her eye is much better now, but we’ve been doing follow-ups regularly because it wasn’t healing as quickly as it should due to age). On one of these follow-ups, we checked into S’mores for lunch. The place has been around since Nexus opened and touts … Continue reading Meal for Two: S’mores, Bangsar South

Strangers at 47, SS17 Petaling Jaya – Sweet and Savoury Crepes

Living in the Klang Valley, there are plenty of cool and chic cafes to check out every other week. But competition is pretty fierce, and if you don’t have something to draw in the crowds (like good food, impeccable service and an Instagrammable interior), you’re likely to fold just as quickly as you set up shop.

Aside from a thriving arts and culture scene, they’ve also got awesome coffee. And of course, food. Australians in general are big on food and wine, but Melbourne is on another level. … Continue reading Food Review: Lesa, Melbourne

Food Review: Filling Sandwiches @ Good Blue Men, Happy Mansion PJ

Dating back to the 1970s, the Happy Mansion flats in Petaling Jaya comprise several blocks of old, walk-up apartments. In recent years, many of its ground floor units have been taken up by cool cafes and eateries, making it a favourite hangout spot for foodies and hipsters alike.

Review: 3-Course Western Dinner @ The Limestone’s Restaurant, Ipoh

With its laid back vibe and abundance of cheap, tasty street food, Ipoh is probably the last place you’d expect to find a fine dining restaurant of any kind.
