Cowan Street Ayam Tauge Koitiau, Ipoh

Ipoh is known for its beansprouts chicken (among other food items) and the locals will often tell you to skip the touristy places because it doesn’t do justice to the real deal. Cowan Street Ayam Tauge Koitiau came highly recommended but I never got the chance to try it for myself as they were...

Sam U Claypot Restaurant, PJ State

Sam U Claypot Restaurant in PJ State used to be one of my regular eating spots when I’m in the area as the claypot fish curry is pretty decent. It’s been a while since I went back until two weekends ago, when I met up with a friend for some wine shopping. They are known [] The post Sam U Claypot...

Shinmapo Korean BBQ, SS15 Courtyard

I’ve heard good things about the food at Shinmapo Korean BBQ so Jien and I paid them a visit last weekend to try one of the specialty – Galmaegisal. For the uninitiated, galmaigisal is a cut of pork that’s known as “skirt-meat”, said to have a deeper flavour with a texture that resembles beef more...

No Pain, No Gain

I’ve been running my agency for more than 18 months and it’s been difficult. Very, very difficult. “Why so?” Many may ask. When I left my position in a large GLC, I took with me more than 8 years of work experience and knowledge, thinking it was what I needed to found my own team. [] The post...

Kedai Kopi Ah Chow, Ipoh

I remember my first sip of spiked coffee – my good friend Jeen brought it to school in a thermos flask, and we sneaked sips during additional maths class. Back then, drinking coffee was considered “grown up” and what more, coffee with whisky. There were stifled giggles and plenty of wrong calculations...

During our recent trip to Ipoh, we ventured slightly further from the city – Chemor to be exact, in search for this “really good” fish noodles, according to our sources. Hoong Wan is popular for its seafood and fish noodles, and prices vary depending on the items you order. Order is simple – you...

Tabe Tomo, Plaza Batai

Yakitori is clearly the main feature of Tabe Tomo in Plaza Batai, Damansara Heights – Japanese style skewers, grilled over charcoal fire till juicy perfection. The menu is modern and also offers other non-yakitori items, like chicken stew, croquette and mentai udon. Tabe Tomo (eating buddies in Japanese)...

Restoran Jen Jen, Ipoh

Hor fun with shredded chicken is an Ipoh specialty, where you get the silkiest rice noodles in a broth that is sweetened with prawns and in some places, a bit of flavour additive. Restoran Jen Jen in Ipoh is said to be a favourite among locals, so Jien and I gave it a shot. It’s [] The post...

10 Years On

It’s been close to 10 years ago since I started this blog and looking back, the Bangsar Babe brand has come a long way. Or at least it seems so to me. What initially began as a food and travel diary is now a trademarked brand with endorsements and collaborations with other lifestyle brands. Many []...

Ruk Mookata, Puchong

All-You-Can-Eat deals below RM50 is sometimes too good to be true – I recently tried a deal as such at Ruk Mookata in Puchong with a group of friends. Ruk Mookata serves Thai-style BBQ and steamboat using a charcoal pit, which is said to give the meats more flavour. Getting to Puchong on a weeknight...

Yu Noodle Cuisine

I first heard about Yu Noodle Cuisine a couple of months back, from a reader who noticed my frequent visits to another popular noodle house. Based on the photos of Yu Noodle Cuisine online, it’s easy for one to associate Yu Noodle with another popular noodle house as they both serve similar things –...

Chicken Up, Subang Jaya

Chicken Up in Subang Jaya has been making waves on social media, so frequent that Jien and I got curious and thus we paid them a visit.

Vietnam Jie, Cheras

There are a few things I would go the distance for and beef noodles are one of them. Whether it’s the Chinese style herbal broth or Vietnamese Pho Bo with amber-tinged broth, I’m game. I came to know about Vietnam Jie in Cheras from a good friend, who claimed the iced Vietnamese coffee was as []...

A self reflection

Around the same time two years ago, I was on my desk typing my resignation letter for the umpteenth time. But that time around, I somehow found the courage to send it to print and sealed it in an envelope before placing a copy each of that resignation on my HR’s desk and subsequently, my [] The...

Ekkamai at Batai, Damansara Heights

I’ve walked past Ekkamai along the shops at Jalan Batai several times but it wasn’t until last week that I tried it for the first time with my family. We would usually go to Busaba when we crave Thai food, but opted for Ekkamai for a change. I was told they get quite packed during [] The post...

Nam Heong, Pavilion Elite

Nam Heong in Ipoh is one of the pit-stops I’d make when I’m in the city as they offer a range of Ipoh favourites like the egg tarts, which I enjoy. When I heard of their venture into Klang Valley, a part of me felt sceptical – would the food be the same? My recent [] The post Nam Heong,...

Bangsar Babe takes a break

It’s been almost a week since I last updated this blog, partly because work has been all-consuming and I was really focusing on client projects from the agency end. I also took a short break from blogging because Jien whisked me away to Lombok for a short retreat to celebrate my birthday. The year has...
