Meal For One: Beverly’s Kitchen, Taman Meranti Jaya Puchong

SMEs form a big part of the Malaysian economy, and they’re not just your tech start-ups or media agencies: they also include your neighbourhood kedai runcit and favourite hawker stall. While people are encouraged to stay home more to avoid the risk of infection, there are still ways you can help to support your local business. If you’re taking a break from cooking, for example, … Continue reading Meal For One: Beverly’s Kitchen, Taman Meranti Jaya Puchong

Review: Lunch at Serai, Jaya Shopping Centre

When it comes to traditional Malay and Western fusion food served in a casual setting, Serai is a popular choice among urbanites in the Klang Valley. Their Jaya Shopping Centre outlet is crowded with office workers, business groups and Datin-types over lunch. We joined the throng for a farewell meal with a colleague. Love the interior! High ceilings give a sense of space; space-efficient drawers keep cutlery … Continue reading Review: Lunch at Serai, Jaya Shopping Centre

Food Review: TRACE Restaurant and Bar @ Element KL, Jalan Binjai

There’s such a glut of hotels in KL that it’s hard to differentiate one from the other – if you’ve been to one high end hotel, you’ve been to them all. The latest addition, Element KL, is a bit different though. For one, their newly opened restaurant, TRACE, is located on the 40th floor of the Ilham Towers, and the restaurant’s glass windows offer a … Continue reading Food Review: TRACE Restaurant and Bar @ Element KL, Jalan Binjai

Lucky Star Western Cafe, Setiawalk Puchong

  Out looking for grub with the fam at Setiawalk Puchong last weekend! The initial plan was to have Vietnamese food, but after walking around we decided to try a restaurant next to it instead. Lucky Star prides itself in serving flame-grilled items, pizzas and pastas, and Western-style fare like chicken and pork chops. Minimal deco, but comfy enough. There were a couple of booths … Continue reading Lucky Star Western Cafe, Setiawalk Puchong

Burger Galore – Buns & Meat, Lakefields Sungai Besi

Update:Buns & Meat is now permanently closed.  A thick, delicious slab of meat between round, toasty buns…. hmmm hmmm. 😀 ….I’m talking about burgers, of course! It’s utter, porky goodness at (the rather cheekily named) Buns & Meat at Lakefields, Sungai Besi in KL. An absolute haven for all things porcine, the menu features an impressive selection of meaty burgers, pizzas, pastas and more in a … Continue reading Burger Galore – Buns & Meat, Lakefields Sungai Besi

A Kronenbourg 1664 Party / The Ship KL

I joined a contest on Facebook for Kronenbourg 1664 (A French beer), and was chosen as one of their lucky 25 pairs to be in the running for an exclusive Dinner in the Sky event on Wednesday. Why mid-week? Coz the guys at Kronenbourg are all about celebrating ‘work-life’ balance – hence the rushing home from Balakong at 5pm, speed showering and changing in 15mins, … Continue reading A Kronenbourg 1664 Party / The Ship KL
