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...

Outdark, SS15 Subang Jaya

Outdark in SS15 Subang Jaya is said to serve the best Korean fried chicken in Klang Valley at the moment – a claim made by my friend who loves fried chicken just as much as I do. Such a statement needed validation which prompted me to pay Outdark a visit. Service was fairly quick though [] The post...

Yummy Duck, Kuchai Lama

Every now and then, I would crave a good roast duck meal and one of my favourite places for duck happens to be all the way in Kepong. Sunrise is also a good option but the queue can be maddening so I tend to opt out of going there. An acquaintance mentioned Yummy Duck in [] The post Yummy Duck,...

SS15 Pork Noodles

How long would you wait for a bowl of pork noodles? 10 minutes? 30 minutes? Or an hour? The threshold of each individual is different and such differences became apparent when waiting for your bowl at the famous SS15 Pork Noodles. It’s been more than a year since Jien and I visited this stall because...

JWC The Factory 30, Johor Bahru

The café scene in JB is more developed that I expected it to be with a lot of the customer base coming from our neighbouring country. When Jien and I were in the city a couple of months back, we checked out JWC (short for Just Want Coffee), The Factory 30 – said to be [] The post JWC The Factory...

Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu, SS14 Subang Jaya

When it comes to Hakka style yong tau fu, I often get my fix from E Soo and Chan Chan in Kepong. Both are known for their craft but I recently discovered a pretty good version at Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu in SS14 Subang Jaya. Jien tried it with a few of his colleagues [] The post Yee Kee Yong Tau Fu, SS14...

Chong Say Kee, Bercham

Chong Say Kee in Bercham, Ipoh is known for its roast duck, char siew and siew yuk – a recommendation by an Ipoh local. Since Jien and I were in midst of exploring for new food options in Ipoh, we gave this a try. The restaurant isn’t overly crowded but while I was there, I [] The post Chong Say...

Cor Blimey, SS15 Subang Jaya

Fish and chips were one of things I’d often eat during my time in the UK – an English staple food available in most restaurants, cafes and pubs. I love mine with plenty of malt vinegar and a dollop of mushy peas at the side. It’s also one of the cheaper meal alternatives for students [] The...

Nasi Kandar Utara, SS15 Subang

Nasi Kandar is one of the simple pleasures I enjoy on a leisurely weekend and both Jien and I are always on a lookout for good ones in Klang Valley.

Bubbalicious Brunch at Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur

Champagne and brunch is always a great idea on weekends – sumptuous brunch spread with glasses of bubbly, and good company of course. It’s been a few years since Jien and I had brunch at Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur and quite a lot has changed. The kitchen is helmed by Chef Ricky Parlanti and...

High Tea at Common Man Coffee Roasters

I was asked to expect the uncommon at Common Man Coffee Roasters in TTDI, when I accepted their invitation to sample their High Tea Set for two recently. I’ve been a fan of their place in Singapore and when CMCR opened in KL almost a year ago, I was excited. They are known for their [] The post...
