Phil’s Pizza, Bangsar

Bangsar’s latest spot for New York-style pizzas is a casual affair, serving 18-inch pies by the slice at prices starting from RM6. Our favourite of four pizzas we tried was the classic Pepperoni (RM12), with crisp, thin slices of beef salami all across the slice. The crust meets the mark for pizza that can be […]

Planter Chin x TamanHati, Bangsar

Coffee, cacti and cats: KL’s greenest indoor destination for a flat white and ficus-shopping is home to a sleek espresso machine, soothing plants from Peru and all across the globe, and stealthy rescue felines named after pop and rap stars.

The curry is rich with roe in practically every spoonful, complementing the seafood-sweet crustaceans, served […]

Baba Quay, Ronnie Q Bangsar

Pie tee, pongteh and Pimm’s: Baba Quay, the new Peranakan kitchen of Bangsar’s Ronnie Q pub, tempts us with traditional Nyonya cooking, paired with a cocktail or two for extra pleasure. The top hats are crunchy and fresh-tasting, though they could be more richly stuffed with shredded turnips for a juicier chew (RM12 for six […]

The Dropbar Coffee, Bangsar

Flat whites, not flat tyres, keep the wheels spinning at The Basikal biking shop’s in-house caffeine bar: Sip on a creamy cappuccino, brewed with beans by KL’s small-batch Suka Benih roasters, or a toasty-roasty pour-over, with helmets, hand pumps and handle grips as Dropbar’s backdrop.
