Jingle bell, jingle bell as month of December is the happiest festive season of the year. Christmas is just around the corner. I could not help but Taste by Champignon in Ekocheras had come out with their winter series edition. This is so cute especially with rain deer and ginger breadman. Snowman is edible too but on special request.

This winter season all are pretty good. A nice balance of flavour, with layers of flavour. Each of the dessert is master crafted. Look at the thin layer of top follow by multiple layer of ingredients in it. Some of the pastry even take 2-3 days to complete.

I am certainly a big fan of Mala but never knew that it will be incorporated into fast food. Marrybrown have take a notch up by introducing their new special menu. Mala-Tup Ayam Goreng. I have tried it and it is indeed impressive for people whom have not tried Mala before.

Marrybrown Malatup (3)

This limited time menu comes in 4 options :

  1. Ayam Goreng Mala 2pcs Combo =  Harga dari RM 15.90
  2. Ayam Goreng Mala 3pcs Combo = Harga dari RM 18.80
  3. Bubur Ayam Mala-tup Combo = Harga dari RM 14.60
  4. Mala-tup Box Meal =  Harga dari RM 22.60

Marrybrown Malatup (1)

My personal preference will be 2 pieces of Malatup Chicken and best if they can have fries added into the Malatup chicken set. Then it would be perfect!

Those of you never try before, I would advise to hit on 2 pieces of chicken. The taste of the Mala is very mild, a bit of mild spicy and mild numb after taste (it wont happen during the first 2 bites but after you finish the first piece of chicken). Some of you might feel it immediately especially for first timer.

Marrybrown Malatup (2)

chicken no doubt is fried to perfection. Crispy inside out and chicken meat is juicy.

Marrybrown Malatup (6)

This is the Mala-tup Box Meal =  Harga dari RM 22.60 You get fries, onion rings, a chicken burger, 1 piece of mala-tup chicken and coleslaw.

Marrybrown Malatup (4)

Marrybrown Malatup (7)

This box is good enough to ko me for my brunch till dinner. quite filling but I am in love with the Mele-tup frieds. If they do sell it separately. Go for it!

Marrybrown Malatup (8)

Marrybrown Malatup (9)

Another interesting combination is their Bubur Ayam Mala-tup. turns out to be better than expected. A nice mix hit of spicy, hot porridge  alot of crispy bites and of course the chicken add nice bites to it!

Recommended!

Marrybrown Malatup (11)

Best advise to dine there to get the best experience of the chicken or consume within 15 minutes after take away. I did take away as 35 minutes when I reach home, the chicken is not as good as I am eating there.

High Tea is indeed not my thing as I find the price for it is quite steep for me. However when I saw @ivyaiwei posted about her experience for High-tea in The Ruma Hotel and Residence, then I asked her about her opinion. She just told me her no.1 spot. Best of all, CIMB card/Debit cardholders get 40% off!! Immediately I just went and book for it.

Just got an email that their promo had extended to November too. Menu right at the bottom.

Ruma High Tea (1)

Ruma Hotel and Residence would be like one of my recommendation for travellers with budget. Indeed it is a boutique hotel with nicely build up modern interior. I have not stayed here before but did came over for functions. It is indeed a nice place for picture taking.

Ruma High Tea (2)

Their high tea area is in Goutal room. During this time, reservation is highly recommended and have to send them email ([email protected]) for reservation confirmation. Then you have to make a deposit to secure the spot.

there are 2 sessions. 2.3pm or 3.30 pm. Upon arrival, you will be greeted with their handwashing ceremony.

Ruma High Tea (9)

From the menu, there area some selection of tea for you to choose from. Fret not, as hot water for the tea is refillable.

We had :

  1. Chocolate Mint Tea
  2. French Orange

Both tea were surprisingly good. Got their own taste charactor and it is light yet do not cover the actual tea taste. Pairs well with our tea set too.

Ruma High Tea (10)

as it was Pink-October, in support for Breast Cancer awareness campaign, they have created the tea set to be feature in pink theme.

Ruma High Tea (11)

the flow was to start from top tier then flow to bottom . However, it depend your own liking how you would want to kick start on it.

Not the usual pastries I have especially those tarts with beetroot – that gives you hint of earthy and hint of sweetness at the end is pretty good. Yet the cracker and topped with salmon cubes is savory and perfect!

Ruma High Tea (15)

Ruma High Tea (16)

Can see that they actually put in effort for their mini cakes as there are layers of flavours in it. After enjoying the whole series of items, only then I understand why IVY mention is her no.1.

If many of you want to pamper yourself for a nice afternoon treat, I guess with 40% off is a pretty good bargain and it is quite full actually. I am here mainly because of the  40% CIMB high tea Promo! 😀

First came Brew & Bread when I was in F&B industry. Gotten free sample from my boss for their drip coffee. For a local roasters they are pretty impressive. Over the years the years, they have then build cafe to showcase their coffee and now with warm food. Their original outlet was sin Kota Kemuning then now another outlet in Wisma MCA at Jalan Ampang which is famous for their brunch in KL.

Brew and Bread (1)

After the trail, their drip coffee had become one of my favourite before all others came out, of course with the most recent well known that most of my friend is buying is “perks”.

Brew and Bread (2)

Brew and Bread (3)

Brew and Bread (4)

they have a display corner that sells their coffee drips, beans and some other merchandize.

Brew and Bread (5)

of course, I am in for their single-origin filter coffee @ RM 14 which what they are famous for. Their latte @ RM 8 and Mocha @ RM 11 are equally good.

Brew and Bread (6)

Read up some reviews, their food are pretty good too. Decided to try out their Truffle Bacon Carbonara with Bacon Brisket @ RM 26. It is creamy and they use like sort of fettuccini thicker version, that is cook to al-dante and fragrant is just right.

Brew and Bread (8)

Brew and Bread (8.1)

this is their signature that a lot of people shout out: Hot Bunny Crab @ RM 25. For price wise, it is a pretty good catch with a generous amount of crab meat, a bit hint of creamy spicy and herbs, yet cheese taste is prominent. No wonder it is a must-order. – recommended too.

Brew and Bread (9)

Brew and Bread (10)

A twist of indon – is their healthier version of Gado-Gado @ RM 14. The sauce they did it right, a bit peanut sauce just that healthier side.

Brew and Bread (11)

Egg Benedict @ RM 26 with special in house marinated chicken. More like chicken kunyit. a nice twist which is not the usually classic. Time to change some taste?

Brew and Bread (12)

 

Brew and Bread (14)

French Toast @ RM 23. Broich type bread and a scoop of ice cream. Kinda normal nothing to shout about.

Brew and Bread (15)

Sandwich of Truffle mushroom @ RM 13 and I guess this is the least favourite among the food we have tried. If can, avoid.

Brew and Bread (16)

As we are here for birthday gathering with ex-colleague, after meals, cakes of course is a must.

Brew and Bread (17)

Brew and Bread (18)

cakes all so so only.

Brew and Bread (19)

If you are here, I think their pasta series definitely stood out, follow by Brunch and maybe local delights. For me on my taste profile, rating them as one of the best coffee in KL for a local roaster.

A new hidden bar have surfaced up in KL. With your least expected area as The Curiousity Iron River 好奇鐵河  is operating at Chan Sow Lin, KL. Indeed a hidden gem for the area. If you are a person who loves to be in a second-hand kind of furniture shop, run-down ambience as I called it a rustic heritage building, then this place is a place that you would want to be.

We came here because of Petai Pizza and little did we discover further its a hidden bar. This place has great classic furniture pieces is also because the owner operates a second hand antique furniture shop.

bar in kl

Discovering this place would be a pain in the ass as waze will bring you to a location here you cant park your car. Best is to park your car at Jalan Satu and walk in this bright one-way street alley.

Looking at some blog posting, they have definitely light up the whole place to a new level. More vibrant and captivating. A neon blue sign board and a deck up Avatar kind lighting garden.

classic bar

curiousity

This is one of my favourite walkway. I felt that would be a nice instagramable spot.

hidden bar in kl

little did we know that it is actually a nice bar place. We were here quite early, as bout 7.30pm for dinner. Love the ambience of this place as it is like a modern touch up of a Chinese 60’s herbs medicine shop.

We sat in this little room that is filled with unique furniture pieces.

Since we are here, trying out one of my favourite Negroni Cocktail @ RM 33. For this, I think it is more on the sweeter side. Not really my kind of taste or compare to the usuals that I usually have.

the curiousity iron river (10)

Smoked Duck Spaghetti – a better dish for the night compared to the rest.

the curiousity iron river (9)

Sarawak Laksa

petai pizza

Petai Pizza is indeed done nicely and the taste of petai is a bit prominent. Just that the dough need some improvement.

Nothing to shout out for the mushroom truffle pizza.

roast pork

I would suggest to come here for drinks and enjoy the ambiance.

the curiousity iron river

Indeed a perfect place to hang out as after 9pm, the disco ball is turn on. Totally switched the ambience. They also turn on classic Shangainese songs and also the 60’s and 70’s English songs. Indeed perfect music to be in. Do not mind to come back for round of gathering with friends here.

the curiousity iron river (21)

As they are a newly operated bar, food-wise they still have room for improvement. they need time to adjust and will go back again.

While waiting for next appointment and not sure where to go, he randomly try out Nanyang Cafe in Eko Cheras Mall. While I was writing this, only know that they are actually quite famous among this neighbourhood for a Hong Kong Cafe in KL after Kim Garry.

Eko Cheras

Simple modern interior that reflects much more on the Hong Kong Cha Chan Teng.

Polo Pau

What attracted me to try this outlet is because of their Hong Kong Polo Bun that make fresh in the kitchen, that looks pretty decent.

Hong Kong Cafe

Nanyang Cafe (4)

Menu is quite direct with noodles, cheese rice, toast where it should be. Pork Burger with their french style bun.

Nanyang Cafe (5)

I must say that their drinks are very impressive. All their drink series are very solid or strong in taste. Those with weaker heart might not stand their Coffee. Smooth and strong in taste.

I tried 3:

  1. Hong Kong Coffee
  2. Hong Kong Milk Tea
  3. HOng Kong Yin Yeong

I personally like their coffee if were for breakfast. then their milk tea taste better too.

Nanyang Cafe (6)

wan tan noodle is alright. Noodle is springy and the wanton sui know is pretty decent in size. A prawn sui know.

Nanyang Cafe (7)

Polo bun

This is the main star that caught me into the outlet. Hong Kong Polo Bao with New Zealand Butter @ RM 4.80. It is not too bad for a bun. Fresh soft bun, flaky crusty top and with a slice of butter and a glass of coffee its a great combination.
