The Pantry Cafe @ Lorong Kurau, Bangsar

The Pantry is a modest looking neighbourhood café serving gourmet all-day breakfast. It is along Lorong Kurau and tucked away from the bustling streets of Maarof and Telawi. Over the past few years, Lorong Kurau had evolved from the old side of Bangsar to what is now a small stretch of eateries from the east to west. I remember only good things about this café when I first tried some time last year.

Jeq In The House Cafe @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya

It was a drizzly and cloudy Sunday evening. The kind of weather where you feel like curling up and snuggle under sheets while watching your favourite TV show. But not me. This was the perfect weather to go places. So I opened Safari to search for a decent café serving dinner (out of Bangsar), called an Uber, brought my laptop and head straight over to Jeq In The House at Section 17. Continue reading “Jeq In The House Cafe @ Section 17, Petaling Jaya”

Nadodi Restaurant @ Jalan Yap Kwan Seng, Kuala Lumpur

Last week, I came across Nadodi restaurant from an acquaintance’s facebook page. So me being me, I (obviously) clicked on the post to check out some pictures and also the restaurant’s page. The visual images caught my attention and I couldn’t wait to try. The impatient me went to Nadodi that evening, regardless of the fact it was still their soft launch. I knew I was in for an intriguing evening as soon as I entered the restaurant. Not only because the place looked elegant, but we were also warmly welcomed and greeted by staff of Nadodi carrying amicable smiles on their faces.

Tifin by Kumar’s Restaurant @ DC Mall, Damansara Heights

Tifin Restaurant - DC Mall, Malaysian Food Blog
Entrance of Tifin Restaurant, DC Mall

The newly opened DC Mall has a few very popular restaurants which might be familiar to most, namely; Erawan, Soleil, Canton Fare, and Tifin by Kumar’s Restaurant or just Kumar’s as better known by most. As of date, there’s not many outlets open, but I’m sure this mall will soon be filled up with plenty of eateries worth visiting. So for now, let’s stick to the ones that are available. The last time I remember eating at Kumar’s was more than 2 years back at their outlet in Oasis Ara Damansara which was a little far out (for me), although the food was very tasty. Now that Tifin by Kumar’s Restaurant is less than 5 minutes away from home, more reasons to savour some spicy flavourful curry. Even the sound of it entices me! Continue reading “Tifin by Kumar’s Restaurant @ DC Mall, Damansara Heights”

AD Bar @ Telawi Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

It was one of those late evenings when I asked my friends if they were interested for a nightcap at this speakeasy bar in Bangsar after dinner. The name was AD Bar, in short for Anno Domini. We had to call AD Bar a couple of times asking for directions. It was next door to OJO Coffee in Telawi Bangsar, where you can find the dark stairs with yellow lighted hand rails. Walk all the way up and you will see two doors. It’s the door in front of you, not on your left. Then slide open to enter into AD Bar. Continue reading “AD Bar @ Telawi Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur”

Common Man Coffee Roasters @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur

Instead of my regular salad wrap and cold pressed juice after a sweat sesh at Kiara Hill on a Saturday morning, I went to Common Man Coffee Roasters for a try since I’ve seen some photos of this cafe on Instagram. Lucky thing it was only 2 minutes away from Kiara Hill by foot. CMCR was originally established in Singapore but now has expanded into Malaysia opening its first outlet here in TTDI Kuala Lumpur, offering a full menu (brunch up ’til dinner) and some seriously tasty coffee.  Continue reading “Common Man Coffee Roasters @ TTDI, Kuala Lumpur”
