Sage Restaurant & Wine Bar @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City


After hearing SO MUCH of good things about Sage, TWO failed attempts in securing a table for two, and getting rejected for walk-in ONCE, we were here finally (drum roll please). We took a lift next to Isetan Departmental Store and my heart jumps, thinking that we were just a few steps away from Sage – the talk of the town. Initially, we were rather surprised to see that The Sage is tucked … [Read more...]

Senjyu Sushi @ Cineleisure, Mutiara Damansara


How was your Christmas? We hope that you had an enjoyable and memorable Christmas. Ours was pathetic though. KampungBoy was down with flu so we stayed home on the Christmas Eve and to make up for it, we went for simple Christmas lunch at Senjyu Sushi. We found the restaurant (surprisingly) empty on a public holiday --this made us hesitate at first, since this is usually a bad sign. However, we … [Read more...]

Yuzu @ The Gardens, Mid Valley City


  Our Deepavali week was a great one where we manage to meet up with KampungBoy’s sister and her family at Yuzu for lunch. Tucked away in a rather secluded corner at The Gardens, Yuzu is elegantly trimmed in a warm zen-like ambiance and the sophisticated interior here manages to make one forget about the strip center location.   To cure our hunger pangs, King Prawn … [Read more...]

Upon entering, we were greeted with the burnished warmth of … [Read more...]

Nagomi Shabu Shabu @ Menara Hap Seng


The shabu shabu dining experience originates from Japan, where thin slices of beef is being swish to and froth in pots of boiling clear konbo and daishi soup. Nagomi, unlike other Malaysianised shabu shabu places with fish balls and mock meat, offer us a truly Japanese swish swish experience. Since the Menara Hap Seng branch is located near to my working place, together with my colleague, we … [Read more...]

Kampachi Japanese Restaurant @ Equatorial Hotel


  I was utterly delighted when Food Street invited me to do lunch at Kampachi. As the second oldest Japanese restaurant in Malaysia, Kampachi has never failed to keep up with their reputation, especially the legendary Sunday brunch buffet that strike a perfect balance between value and quality.     Edamame (RM15) as … [Read more...]

Pasta de Gohan @ Sunway Pyramid


With branches scattered around Central, Marina Square, Orchard, Katong and East Coast, Paste de Waruku is definitely not something new for the Singaporeans and some Malaysians. However, I was pretty excited to find out that a spin off of Pasta de Waruku, Pasta de Gohan is opening their doors on the 9th of May but only manage to drop by one week after with fellow floggers. With a wide window … [Read more...]
