Old Georgetown Cafe @ George Town, Penang

During this visit to Penang, time was very limited and food hunting wasn’t our main focus. Our schedule was so jam packed that I didn’t make a makan wish list. All I had in mind was minimizing any possible hassle of traveling from one place to another, having to queue and trouble finding parking. But I was lucky enough to have a friend invited me over to Old Georgetown Cafe, a few weeks old eatery, to sample some famous street food. That saved me from all headaches having to think of where to go eat all my favourite Penang food given that limited time. Continue reading “Old Georgetown Cafe @ George Town, Penang”

Naughty Nuri’s @ Desa Sri Hartamas

The name Naughty Nuri’s is no stranger for swine lovers. From Bali to Kuala Lumpur, Naughty Nuri’s opened its first branch at Desa Sri Hartamas in 2014. They now have other outlets within Klang Valley namely SS15 Subang, KL Life Centre, and Atria PJ as of today. Those of you who have been would already know that food at Naughty Nuri’s are served in big portions – perfect for friends and family in groups. The more the merrier mah! In our experience for this review, it was no exception as well. I was asked to sample their latest Signature BBQ Smoky Spare Ribs and other must try dishes. Together with my loved ones, we enjoyed a wonderful Naughty Nuri “pig-out”!

Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar @ WOLO Bukit Bintang

Am I the last one to Mr Chew’s? Seems like everyone I know have been here except myself. I’ve seen a lot about this place on my social media feed, but I didn’t really know what to expect as I didn’t pay much attention to the details. If everyone raves about it, should be worth checking out right?! Once every month, we would actually explore somewhere “fancy” for dinner just to celebrate…Us. This time, it happened to be on the day of Colony’s official launch at Vipod Residences – a stylish and exclusive co-working space in the heart of city. So for us, we decided to kill two birds with one stone. Dressed up for two occasions, and they’re only about a kilometer away. Continue reading “Mr Chew’s Chino Latino Bar @ WOLO Bukit Bintang”

Frisson Coffee Bar @ Damansara Utama, P.J

Very often before Sunday comes, I would have decided where I wanted to go for brunch on that day. However, Mr Gadget had to bring his car to the workshop, not knowing if any of them will be open. We decided to just try our luck in Damansara Utama since there are so many workshops in that area, we guessed there must be at least one that was open. Otherwise, we would’ve continued searching in other places. As it needed about 1.5 hours to be fixed, we had to find ways to kill time. What better ways than having a snack and coffee? We had a heavy breakfast before at home, so we couldn’t exactly fit in a full course lunch. Besides car workshops, there’s also plenty of cafés and dessert bars along that stretch of shophouses. We randomly entered into Frisson Coffee Bar, which was almost full house already by the time we got there. Continue reading “Frisson Coffee Bar @ Damansara Utama, P.J”

SkyAvenue @ Genting Highlands

Most of us like to head up to Genting Highlands because of its cool climate and its short drive from Kuala Lumpur city. Some fond memories I have of Genting Highlands is the “bumper car” rides in the amusement park where my parents used to take my brother and I. Another was when one of my best friends took me to watch Jordan Chan (陳小春) live in concert during our high school days. Also, that time when my mom brought me to look see (and played a couple of rounds of roulette) in the casino for the first time when I turned 18. Besides that, there’s not much I can recall of since I’ve not been up over the past 6 years. Continue reading “SkyAvenue @ Genting Highlands”

Burger & Lobster @ SkyAvenue, Genting Highlands

It seems like everyone’s raving about the famous lobster chain from London, Burger & Lobster that opened its doors a few months ago in SkyAvenue, Resorts World Genting. My social media feed was flooded since (still is) with pictures from Burger & Lobster, literally every single week. I had been wanting to find out what was all the buzz as I really love lobsters. Plus, I haven’t been back to Genting Highlands for more than 6 years. So we took the opportunity of a long Labour Day weekend, and made plans to go up the highlands for a couple of nights to 吃喝玩樂 (eat, drink and be merry). My main itinerary was to eat that lobster!

Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village II

Last Sunday, my dear family and I had our lunch over at Marmalade, located on the first floor of Bangsar Village II in Telawi. Marmalade is a family-friendly café serving healthy and very delicious comfort food. I am little embarrassed to say; it was only my second time eating there although it’s been around for more than a decade already. Even more so hard to believe given I’m always around Bangsar Telawi! The first was when my big brother had a craving for their famous carrot cake, while I was there to share half the cake for a cuppa coffee. Continue reading “Marmalade Cafe @ Bangsar Village II”
