    Bread & Olives Cafe
    What (to have):
    Mediterranean. V-Day Set TBA/ala-carte
    Where (is it):
    No. 7, Lot Perniagaan Komplex Pelancongan, Menara Tinjau, Jalan Ampang Hulu langat, 68000 Ampang, Selangor Darul Eshan.
    Tel : 013-2506119
    Why (here):
    From the cafe’s terrace, a breathtaking view of the Ampang Jaya skyline is stretching into Kuala Lumpur, that meets the eye with the multitude buildings, houses and skyscrapers dotting the landscape! Prominent in the background are Menara Kuala Lumpur and Petronas Twin Towers with the growing city and its suburban areas in plain sight.


    Full House
    What (to have):
    Café/Bistro Food. Only V-Day set at RM 59.90++ per person is available.
    Where (is it):
    C-G-11 Block C, No. 2 Jalan PJU 1A/41B, Pusat Dagangan N2Z, Ara Jaya PJU 1A, 47301 PJ.
    Tel: 03-78850836
    Why (here):
    I tend to think that most themed restaurants would rely on hype and glitz rather than good food. It comes to my surprise when the food was by no means a dreadful meal, but much of it was mediocre and acceptable, with more rooms for improvement. Full House is exceptionally relaxed and convivial. It creates the perfect atmosphere for any individual to sit, read a book, meet new people, have some coffee or simply hang out.


    What (to have):

    Italian. V-Day Set at RM 55++ to RM 85++/ala-carte.
    Where (is it):
    2nd Floor, The Gardens, Mid Valley City.
    Tel: 03-2283 3675
    Why (here):
    I think that with constant somber musings on recessions, downturn and credit crunch playing over our ears every day, it is time to tighten our belt a little bit. No more fancy/fine dining but for that little treat of a hearty Italian fare that is light on the wallet, Italiannies would be the obvious choice.

    j & r

    Jarrods n Rawlins
    What (to have):

    Non-Halal. V-Day Set at RM 80 to RM 100 ++ per person (4 course dinner)/ala-carte.
    Where (is it):
    Jarrod & Rawlins Damansara Height No. 6, Lorong Dungun, Damansara Height.
    Tel: 03-2093 0708
    Why (here):
    With more hits than misses in our order, more than reasonable price range, sweet and attentive services, there aren’t any excuses not to revisit.

    my elephant

    My Elephant
    What (to have):

    Thai. Not having any sets but the place will be nicely done on Valentine’s Day.
    Where (is it):
    Block C-G4, Happy Mansion,Section 17/13,46400 Petaling Jaya.
    Tel: 012-3285028 or 019-3608911
    Why (here):
    My Elephant at Happy Mansion has a look of elegance sophistication with some small little details such as daisies, candle light and cute elephant painting. The quality of food has somewhat wavered due to the large crowd. This has not hampered our enjoyment because the award giving ceremony was far more interesting. We’ll definitely return for the ala carte menu due to positive reviews from other floggers’ previous visit.
