Operating in a shoplot with rooms that are quite unique as it is build with wood partition and it does look private. If you are a small group, you will be sharing with another group of people in the room. It could get very noisy if every one start to talk loudly.

You will be handed a handwritten menu, then do place your order at the counter. Do note that they are not good in English and best for you to communicate your best action including body language.

We ordered Army Stew @ RM 53, comes with the usual ingredients such as tofu, ham, sausage and ramyeon. The soup is pretty good, as hint of sweetness from the veggie, nice balance of spicy and sour. Pretty different compare to others.

If you are looking for some unique dining experience of Korean food in KL, then perhaps this could be something that you might want to hit on. Classic ambiance that looks like a hidden joint in Korea. Overall, it is not bad and do not mind to come back if do pass by the area.

IT is a bit hard to look for this restaurant as it doesnt have lights and proper signage, as the little green tea is blocking it. The shop name is only hand written.

At the end month of September, ended up the month by enjoying wine tasting moments as there are about 80 types of wine at 9 Vine Wine Festival 2018 that took place for about 3 weeks. The event took place at Ampang where there are a stretch of F&B shops that the partner with for wine and dine pairing over the weeks. There are 2 vineyard that I am targeting as they are quite well known for the flavours profile that I have yet tried before.

Entry for the event was only RM 118 for the tasting that starts from 11am – 6pm which I find quite worth it.

First stall to start off with mild is with Da Vincci cocktail tester with mixologist from Singapore

The vineyard owner Sartori from Italy. Their wine profile is quite interesting.

Balduzzi is no stranger to me as they are pretty solid wine that will never go wrong if you do not know what to buy in the wine rack. They are more towards slightly stronger notes. Shiraz is pretty good for this brand.

Among the showcase, this still remain as my main favourite and we ended up bought 8 bottles from this stall. My personal favourite are their Boschendal Caberne Souvignon 2015 and Boschendal Chardonnay 2017.

Second brand that I am aiming for is The beautiful Great Southern James Halliday is a 5 star Winery that produces  RockCliffe from Western Australia. Love their selection of wine and added into my list now for some easy wine to drink.

It was rainy day and just drove back from Penang, then out of idea of where to eat not until Ken suggest to bring my bro,his gf and me eat one of the best KL chicken tandori & nan which located at opposite Ampang Point directly at the junction of the flyover heading towards Kuala Lumpur. Uncle Arumugam’s Tandoori & Naan stall is one of the stall to be.

Cannot deny that, this is really one of the hidden gem around the area that have such a great stalls. Ken rated this place as one of his top tandori stalls in KL. If from the main road, they are hidden behind a bushes and will pass through a row of shop houses that is closed during night. I park at the road side and walk in.

tandori (2)

They are actually sharing an area with malay stalls next to it and their business is so good that one time they lbbq the tendori chicken is a few pieces at one go.
