6 places foodies should explore in KL

Everyone knows that Malaysia is one of the best places for food and you can practically find any type of cuisine here…  and as the capital city, Kuala Lumpur has eateries just about every corner..  I am however just sharing 6 eateries I recently tried out on my KL Lah trip with Gaya Travel and Kuala Lumpur Tourism Bureau under DBKL…

WOWKL

WOW KL! is of course the must visit destination for all tourists to Kuala Lumpur, but for us locals too, they do actually serve up some pretty good food…

Located right beside MATIC (Malaysian Tourism Centre) it is a very well situated restaurant…

For tourist, do indulge in local dishes as well as the cultural performance that gives you a glimpse of what Malaysian culture is like..

For locals, indulge your tastebuds with their set meal or ala carte dishes.. which are serioisly pretty good..

I have eaten here a few times and I do enjoy the taste…

ChiFan and Cakelicious

20180312_170238-01-1008x756

Chi Fan means “eat” in Chinese…and this little restaurant is just a very ol skool kinda cozy place to indulge in some home made dishes…

20180312_170312-01-1008x75620180312_180401-01-756x1008

Located in Taman Melawati, Chi Fan serves up some pretty interesting and of course yummy mee calong, a heritage recipe from the coastal town of Beserah in Pahang. The noodles come with kitchen-made fish balls prepared with ikan selayang (very tender & naturally tasty) in a light, delicately sweet fish broth that’s aromatic with cinnamon & cloves – ideal for folks who love diving deeper into the diversity of Malaysian recipes.

And you really should also taste her Nasi Goreng Kerabu which is really so yummy.. Got even someone like me who does not eat much rice craving for more…

I could not get enough of her Buah Melaka aka Onde Onde as well…

Address- 9, Jalan H3, Taman Melawati, Kuala Lumpur.
Opening Hours-
Mon-Tues, Thurs-Fri, 12pm-7pm; Sat,7am-7pm; Sun, 7am-12pm.

Anyway we were at Chi Fan who was also hosting Syahir, a young and good looking baker who makes some of the nost heavenly cakes and buttercream..

20180312_170334-01-1008x756
Syahir owns Cakeliciousmy and when we saw his cakes on the table at Chi Fan we were all going “Wow….”

There was just a beautiful cake sitting there with butter cream cactus all over it.. and well even more cuppies/cupcakes on the table as we were to try our hands in putting the icing on the cupcakes…

20180312_172324-01-756x1008

Syahir really made me want to hate him seems he showed us how he put the icing so effortlessly but when it was our turn, everything was a huge mess… lol… but ok.. with no one watching (at least that was what I think) I quickly slipped my creamed finger in my mouth.. Oh… so yummy.. the butter cream was delicious..

20180312_171751-01-756x1008

However my cupcakes came in Chocolate and Red Velvet… ughhh.. Red Velvet is not exactly my favourite cake since some people get it just so cheesy.. but surprisingly when I popped my ready made cake in my mouth… it was sheer orgasmic delight…

Who needs a man when there is such sheer good food like these cakes from Cakeliciousmy or chocolate….

Rebung

20180314_122335-1008x756

To be honest, I do not like Rebung’s new address… well, it is located on the top floor of a multi-storey car park, with clear signage pretty close to the Royal Lake Gardens…

What I do not like is the car park and the lifts.. and it can be a bit stinky downstairs at the lifts.. but once you step out from the lifts, you might feel like you have stepped out in Narnia from the musty cupboard…(ok, a little exaggeration, but it is what I feel)

The restaurant is a welcome sight with bright lighting and simple, colourful decor. There’s an indoor buffet area, a few outdoor tables or well, you can also choose to dine with your family or friends at one of the private rooms, each simply named after the primary colour of the room.

The buffet spread at Rebung is pretty generous and stays the same every day, or at least that was what I was told… Rebung is after all well known for its signature dishes such as the pucuk ubi (tapioca shoots), which is cooked in a lovely gulai with duck eggs and tapioca…

Assam pedas Ikan Pari, with its sourish spicy gravy perfectly complementing the fresh and tender pieces of stingray and soft-stewed cuts of lady’s fingers… as well as a whole load more classical Malay dishes like ikan patin, masak tempoyak, beef rendang and a lot more.

You can also find more freshly made items like popiah basah, roti jala, DIY ais kacang station, noodle station, grill and fry stations (ikan bakar, cucur and pisang goreng) outside in the courtyard…

When you have finished your main dishes, indulge in something sweet such as a refreshing ABC, “durian pulut”, “pengat pisang”, and other varieties of Malay traditional “kuih-muih”.

Address – Cascade Parking Bukit Aman, 1, Jalan Tanglin, Tasik Perdana, 50480 Kuala Lumpur
Opening Hours:
Lunch: daily from 12.00noon to 3.00pm

Sunway Putra Hotel

20180314_204925-01-1008x756

I cannot believe I did not know Sunway Putra Hotel is serving up an amazing deal… You really have to go pay a visit at the Coffee House and try out their Fish Head Curry…

Especially prepared by Chef Rossham Rosli, Sunway Putra Hotel Kuala Lumpur’s Executive Chef, you will be pleasantly surprised by the generous portion of Fish Head Curry which is just soooo reasonably priced at just RM39.90 nett…

And it comes served with two steamed white rice, pappadom crackers and some vegetables.

20180315_000739-01-1008x756

Made from the head of the Ikan Merah or Red Snapper Fish, the Fish Head Curry is painstakingly made with simmering all the ingredients with the ingredients being added one by one….

Suka Sucre Bistro

20180313_150256-01-1008x756

The ambiance and the interior of Suka Sucre is definitely plush and yet cosy… It is definitely an ideal place for a family outing or to bring your friends or date there for a treat or two…

20180313_150410-02-1008x756

With the theme “From Rembau to Paris”, since the owner the young and dynamic celebrity chef Dato’ Fadley Yaakob was raised in Negeri Sembilan and after studying in Paris, at Le Cordon Bleu had the idea of marrying these two worlds… to create the SukaSucre Bistro…

We had some pretty yummy pasta – the pasta daging salai masak lemak cili api which was just irresistible as well as pasta Ratatouille… as well as a variety of colourful macaroons to try while waiting for the man himself..

20180313_155616-03-1008x756

He arrived with a little flair and proceeded to create his new unique dish, the Sweet Table… All eyes were on him, transfixed by his art as he drew designs on the white paper on the table with strawberry and chocolate sauces, then putting a variety of other sauces and even red velvet crumbs..

20180313_154410-01-756x1008

It was really mesmerizing watching him arrange his made-on-the-spot dessert featuring banana fritters, six different sauces, chocolate and red velvet cakes, creme brulee, macarons, lemon meringue and ice-cream.. a combination of local sweets and French sweets…

20180313_181455-02-1008x756

When we were told to tuck in using only our fingers… we all had stars in our eyes… lol… and of course started stuffing our faces in the yummy, yummy concoction…

Yup… I found a new hang out place to hang out with my friends… it is the perfect place and food lovers can just come here to find their favourite food, and enjoy alfresco dining with the most stunning views of the city…

You can find plenty of yummy food from local food, Korean food, Mexican fuood, Japanese Food, Thai Food, Western Food and the list is endless.. I think there are about 20 or 25 food trucks there but they go on rotation as well .. as every time I am there, I spot some new food trucks…
