Pun’s, Damansara Jaya

In 2018, Pun’s launched its home-churned ice cream, scooping out instantly indelible flavours – including the experimental Tomato Banana and even Candied Baby Octopus – at food markets in Bangsar and Publika. Last year, founders Euwie and Elaine embarked on their own parlour in Seputeh, complementing ice cream with crowd-rousers like fried chicken with waffles. […]


Kean Seng Kopitiam, Sunway Geo Avenue

Tracing its roots three generations back to the founders of a classic Ipoh coffee shop in Gunung Rapat, Kean Seng Kopitiam brings a Hainanese family’s culinary heritage to the Klang Valley. Throwback-taste specialities include beef brisket noodle soup, with five-hour slow-cooked meat in a light, clear broth (RM15.90), and Hainanese curry mee, flavoured mildly with […]


Kushiya, Sunway Geo Avenue

Kushiya cooks up both Korean and Japanese fare from one kitchen, showcasing distinctive seafood sets, particularly for lunch. The Albab Set puts an interesting twist on the Korean bibimbap that Malaysians are familiar with, replacing meat with a heap of flying fish roe, for a crunchy-pop texture in every bite when mixed with the rice […]

Petaling Jaya

Meat & Eat, Aman Suria

Chicago-inspired deep-dish pizzas, Philadelphia-loving cheesesteaks: Meat & Eat offers its own interpretations of these cherished American city classics. Tasty enough on its merits, though purists need not apply. Meat & Eat’s deep-dish pizza  (RM38) bears the signature higher edge, but it’s more of a regular wood-fired pizza here (instead of Illinois’ substantially thicker, buttery pie-like pride […]

The Meatless Co., Bukit Bintang

The Meatless Co. has become a casualty of this year’s health and economic calamities: When we visited in early 2020, we savoured its soulful vegetarian fare with wholesome Japanese inspirations. Farewell to this calm, friendly restaurant that was barely open for four months, serving satisfyingly nourishing mazesoba of spinach ramen with egg and fried vegetarian […]

Posh Cafe KL: Cafes seek to serve their neighbourhoods amid community concerns

Birthday bashes, full moon parties for one-month-old babies, corporate luncheons: Since October 2019, Posh Cafe has pushed to become a place for its neighbourhood, serving the community that surrounds Verve Suites KL South on Old Klang Road. With its nature-inspired, leafy-toned setting, this is meant to be an urban sanctuary, with soft, calming music that […]


Bar B by Merdekarya, Bukit Gasing

Chunky, mildly spiced pork vindaloo with potato peratal, raita and plenty of nasi kunyit (RM15), paired with local tuak served in the refreshing style of a sangria (RM14) or mixed with cranberry juice (RM10): With The Doors and Marvin Gaye playing on the speakers on a Saturday afternoon, this friendly new effort by indie music […]


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. The Dropbar Coffee The Basikal, 89, Jalan Bangsar, 59200 Kuala […]

City Centre

Monroe, KLoe Hotel

Monroe’s beef char siew is bovine beauty in a bowl, nectarously caramelised after being slow-roasted over open charcoal, lusciously layered with a lacquered glaze, with a fatty-fleshy sweet-savouriness that makes this Aussie beef nearly as satisfying as Cantonese barbecued pork. Paired with a soft, wobbly-yolked egg and santan-scented rice showered with aged onion balsamic, this […]
