Ti Chen, The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur

Ti Chen at The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur offers a pleasant view of the lake as well as lush landscaping as you tuck into your meal during the day. I’ve admittedly shied away from Chinese restaurants in hotels because the food tends to be similar, but I was impressed with what Ti Chen had to [] The...

Restoran Ipoh, Jalan Masjid

Ipoh is one of my favourite pitstops to make whenever I head up north as the food is good and it’s less chaotic compared to Penang, for now. Over the weekend, Jien and I ticked off Restoran Ipoh from our to-eat-list, after hearing good things about the place from our friend. Restoran Ipoh is located...

Sin Choi Wah, Bandar Menjalara

With the year-end festivities around the corner, I’ve been on a lookout for good Chinese restaurants in Klang Valley – places I can visit with a group of friends and tuck into hearty dishes over drinks. Sin Choi Wah in Bandar Menjalara came highly recommended by some of my peers and the restaurant also...

What Kind of Driver Are You?

I still remember my first driving experience – I was fresh out of high school and terrified of learning how to drive. A week before my theory exam, the car I was in met with an accident and the incident shook me a little. I passed my theory with almost perfect score but it took [] The post What...

Hup Kee, Jalan Ipoh

My food cravings come in seasons – there was a period where all I wanted to eat was banana leaf rice. Then I moved on to the Korean food phase, which didn’t last very long. Lately, it’s Chinese style cooking and I recently discovered a good tai chow restaurant in Jalan Ipoh called Hup Kee. []...

Harumi 23, Desa ParkCity

I didn’t know what to expect when I stepped into Harumi 23 in Desa ParkCity – a Japanese restaurant cafe with strong focus on modern Tokyo cuisine. The eatery is named after the 23 districts in Tokyo and aims to introduce some of the city’s best cuisine to us Malaysians. Despite Plaza Arkadia...

Bangsar Babe 10th Anniversary

Earlier this year, Jien and I considered the idea of celebrating Bangsar Babe’s 10th Anniversary in the form of a cocktail party – similar to the brand’s 8th Anniversary but we were hoping, better. Given how shorthanded we are as a team, we knew the planning for #BB10 wasn’t going to be easy.

Auntie Lan Sarawak Deli, NZX Ara Damansara

I’ve been on a lookout for good Sarawak Laksa in Klang Valley lately as my Kuching friend has been giving me good input about the dish, right down to the oomph of the sambal belacan. I received a tip-off about Auntie Lan’s Sarawak Deli in NZX Food Court Ara Damansara, and thought the place was []...

Woodstock, Petaling Jaya

Woodstock Restaurant in Petaling Jaya offers a range of western and local dishes, on top of a growing selection of wines, beers and cocktails. It took over the spot where Rokaro used to occupy, boasting a more modern look and feel. The interior is fashioned to give diners a hipster British vibe and the...

Anneh, Damansara Uptown

I often find comfort in banana leaf rice – the mixture of robust curries with steamed rice, and vegetable side dishes to complement the meal. When a friend told me about Anneh in Damansara Uptown, I was intrigued. Anneh is a non-halal banana leaf rice and pork seems to be their USP. The menu is []...

10 Years

10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post on Bangsarbabe.com. I’ve been toying with the idea of writing a blog but didn’t have the guts to start one, despite constant encouragement from friends. So Jien set up the blog instead and gave me the moniker that eventually became my brand – Bangsar Babe®. In...

Yuan Kee, Kepong Baru

Jien and I are big on tai chow places as it allows us to sample three or more dishes with white rice. Hence, we’re always on the lookout for these spots as the restaurants each have their own way of cooking a certain dish and a few tend to be better than others. Yuan Kee [] The post Yuan Kee,...

SALTed, Mutiara Damansara

When it comes to Sarawak food, my knowledge of it isn’t vast – partly because I haven’t even been to Sarawak. Thus, my way of benchmarking is to get as much input as possible from some of the fussier Sarawakians I know. That’s how I found SALTed in Mutiara Damansara. SALTed I was told, serves...

Wonton Pho, Happy Garden

Vietnamese cuisine is Malaysia is harder to find compared to Thai or Japanese, so when I come across a promising Vietnamese restaurant – I’m always game to try. Wonton Pho in Happy Garden was one of those restaurants I kept in mind after a friend posted a photo of their pho on Facebook. The...

Nespresso Essenza Mini

I remember my first experience with Nespresso – during one of my stay in a five-star hotel and the Nespresso machine was available to use when I needed coffee. It was nifty and portable, and best of all, I got pretty decent coffee within a touch of the button. The Nespresso Essenza Mini is just []...

Charlie’s Cafe, Taman Desa

Taman Desa is an area filled with hidden gems, and one needs to look out for them as they can be easy to miss as you drive past the row of shoplots. Charlie’s Café is one of them – it was a couple of weeks back when the lack of parking in that area forced [] The post Charlies Cafe, Taman...

Dragon Door Steamboat, Cheras

Jien and I have different opinions about steamboat and BBQ – I love anything soupy while he’s a fan of smoky-charred flavours. It’s often difficult to agree on a middle ground between these two options as the 2-in-1 steamboat/BBQ we’ve tried didn’t quite hack it. For me, the beauty of steamboat...

OMB Noodle Bar, Cheras

RM12.90 can buy you a meal at many fast food restaurants and most hawker spots, but at OMB Noodle Bar in Cheras, RM12.90 can buy you two bowls of noodles in your choice of flavour. OMB stands for One More Bowl, and offers the concept of two bowls of noodles for the price of one. [] The post OMB...

Soi 55, Solaris Mont Kiara

Soi 55 is possibly the only proper Thai restaurant amidst the many Korean restaurants in Solaris Mont Kiara and Jien suggested dinner here when he read a review on how promising the food was. The restaurant is located along the row of shops across Cold Storage and their current promo is a complimentary pot...

John Walker Son’s XR 21 Mastery, Penang

I recently had the pleasure of being a part of the XR 21 Mastery, an annual by-invitation gastronomical journey by John Walker Sons XR21 where food prepared by some of the best chefs is paired with the blended scotch. This year, the venue of choice was Khoo Kongsi in Penang – a UNESCO heritage...
