Farquhar Mansion @ George Town, Penang

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”

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”!

Breakfast Thieves @ APW Bangsar

APW, short for Art Printing Works is a creative space for different private events / markets such as art, fashion, music, product launch and even community yoga. This space spreads a very positive energetic vibe somehow, and there’s bound to be an event or activity happening every week. It is no wonder a hot spot, where all the young and hip are, to see and be seen. Not forgetting the F&B outlets that’s also drawing the crowd in. Somehow in the past it was quite the opposite for me. I’ve been to APW a number of times but I find it way too warm during the day, that it would discourage me to even think about heading there. But since we really wanted brunch at Breakfast Thieves and thought APW was a nice place for photos, we quickly head over at 10AM before the crowd built up (and before we both turn into grumpy cats).

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”

Wild Honey @ Pavilion, K.L.

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.”

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”

Bottega Mediterranea @ Jalan Ceylon

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.

Sushiya @ Plaza Mont Kiara

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”

Nara Kitchen & Co. @ Uptown, P.J.

Damansara Utama or otherwise known as Uptown, is a happening suburb in Petaling Jaya with a few new developments like the latest Starling mall and Somerset serviced apartments. When it comes to eateries, you are spoiled for choices as there are way too many of them. From a typical mamak, to fast food chains, hawkers, cafés, desserts, you name it. A happening place like this also means that parking is a challenge. As such, there’s only 3 reasons why I would drag myself there; 1) Village Park Nasi Lemak, 2) simply looking for a café for an ang moh brunch, 3) Desserts!!
