It’s been a while since we’ve gone café-hunting around Klang Valley. Not because we were lazy, but merely due to our very busy schedules lately that’s draining us out. Pfffftt! We’ve dedicated most of our weekends to just resting, besides spending time with my loved ones and managing some personal stuff. Yes, I know we still need to eat but we’ve been dependent on home-cooked and also home delivery services. Obviously I’m not going to starve myself silly! Anyway, speaking of spending quality time with loved ones. My bestie told me she really wanted to check out this new café in TTDI called The Other Half. So I thought to myself “This is perfect!! Finally somebody suggested a new place to explore and nobody needs to scratch his/her head trying to answer that million dollar question – where to eat?!”.

Never have I ever thought there will be a day where I’d actually step into an European fine dining restaurant in Penang. Nevertheless, I’ve always been curious in terms of the quality and service compared to KL as it’s a norm for me to either have local food, my grandma’s cooking, or at most, café food when I’m back in this island. Since it was Mr Gadget‘s birthday, I wanted to make it a little special and for us to experience one of the best fine dining restaurants, Farquhar Mansion in Penang on this special occasion. This trip was also extra special for us since we traveled all the way up north for our pre-wedding shoot. Continue reading “Farquhar Mansion @ 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”
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”!
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”
It was one of those rare occasions that I would be spotted in the city for lunch on a Sunday. Futhermore, it was in a mall. You know lah, some of them are always swarmed with people over weekends. To me, having meals in malls are almost always due to convenience. I’m one of those who gets agitated when there’s a long queue, and don’t deal too well with crowds. If it wasn’t because I had some shopping to do, I wouldn’t have ended up in Wild Honey, Pavilion. Continue reading “Wild Honey @ Pavilion, K.L.”
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”
“Where in Penang are we staying this time?” I asked. As always, his response would be “It’s up to you. You know the budget, you choose.” At times a bit stressful, but most times I enjoy exploring the options. Good thing is both our preference would be in a charming boutique hotel. I’ve always had some names on top of my head as I came across them during my last stay. Given a short notice, I did a quick search on these places for the best possible deals that weekend. Most of the familiar names I knew were all booked out. Either that, or they were overpriced. Little did I know then, it was Georgetown World Heritage City Day weekend. There’s a festival held each year in the city in honour of this day. Continue reading “Loke Thye Kee Residences @ Georgetown, Penang”
Bottega Mediterranea are importers of Southern European food and wine. They supply mainly to restaurants and hotels, but have now started expanding to supermarkets as well. It is situated on the ground floor of a bungalow unit right next to Neroteca and Bijan restaurant along Jalan Ceylon to be exact. In between all the happening F&B outlets and residentials in Changkat Bukit Bintang.
I absolutely love sashimi. But ever since the video about a raw oyster with live worms went viral, my parents have been warning me about the health risk of consuming raw fish/meat each time I speak of it. I had a major craving for sashimi last week so I asked my friend, Anisa (who enjoys raw food as much as I do 😬 ) for dinner instead. She suggested Sushiya in Plaza Mont Kiara where she’s been wanting to try. Continue reading “Sushiya @ Plaza Mont Kiara”
