Flirting with Italy at The CKT Supperclub

Flirting with Italy at The CKT Supperclub

Chef Andy Choy (Chateau Dionne) said the theme for The CKT Supper club this month was ‘Italy’ and not Italian, otherwise we would be better off at a true blue Italian resto. He’s being honest, and frankly, it did feel more like Malaysian fusion with 

Spanish vibes at Tifa Modern European

Spanish vibes at Tifa Modern European

No prizes for guessing what Tifa Modern European bar and restaurant is all about – but of course, it adopts a modern take in both its decor and cuisine. Tifa, in Latin, means 3, which reflects the number of partners helming the resto, with one 

Hale and hearty Meat Feds

Truffle Siew Yuk is something carried over from chef Yenni Law’s Meatology days. At her new resto Meat Feds in Taman Paramount, roast pork is paired with noodles, similar to wantan mee taken up several notches. Noodles packed with umami and a touch of sweetness 

The CKT Supperclub presents Taiwan with a twist

The CKT Supperclub presents Taiwan with a twist

Underground supper clubs hint at exclusivity, immersive culinary experiences and no holds barred as chefs explore new dishes and put their creativity to the test. It is exactly this premise that attracted chef Andy Choy to the idea of starting The CKT Supperclub. CKT, btw, 

Fancy French at Muse by Gest

Fancy French at Muse by Gest

A bit late to the party but made a point to drop by Muse by Gest last week as I heard many good things. Opened in Nov last year, Muse is helmed by chef Chin Jin Fah who owns well-known Chinese resto Extra Super Tanker.

Discovered this gem of a place when looking for a place to celebrate Su’s birthday. Loo Loo Casual Dining aims to do away with fancy decor, pretty facade and fake promises, and just letting the food speak for itself. Apart from a ruby red curtain

Feasting at Foodies Gourmet Market and Cafe

Good quality, well-made sausages are not easy to find in Malaysia, otherwise they probably cost a bomb. Which was why it was so delightful to find juicy, superior and flavourful sausages – chicken, lamb and beef – at Foodies Gourmet Market and Cafe in Kinrara.

You got me at Hungry Bacon

During a recent birthday celebration, we descended on Hungry Bacon, chiefly because the name of the resto itself was already appealing. Looking more like a pub rather than a family joint thanks to the dark interior, the menu centres on Mr Pig, naturally. We got 

Porkalicious menu at Snout

Porkalicious menu at Snout

With a name like Snout, there’re no prizes for guessing what’s the mainstay of this resto. The place is brightly lit and spacious with piggy soft toys on stools and pigs painted on walls, reaffirming the restaurant’s theme, while potted plants, stacks of books and

You can Buri by Two Chefs me any time

There’s Japanese food, and then, there’s Japanese cuisine that’s so good, it’ll knock your socks off. Buri by Two Chefs in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, seems like any other ordinary Japanese restaurant, but food is well-above expectations, short of an omakase experience. Helmed by chefs
