Pipers (1)

Hidden in high rise residential, smack this few restaurant and bar that operate in Mont Kiara residence area and you will be surprise on what you will discover. One of them is this lovely restaurant & bar – Pipers. If you are around the area, you would not notice this building as it is pretty camoflush with the rest of the residential area or more like a club house, but its actually a public area.

Pipers (2)

Previously was known as another name and now under this new management they have switch it to Pipers.

Pipers (3)

Its more like a neighbourhood bar that gives you some quiet space that you wanna chill with nice background music and personal touch of the bar tender. Not only that, they do have live band playing on Thursday – Saturday. Best option is to go for their bottle beer.

Pipers (6)

Food menu is rather simple with a few pages to flick around. Price here I would say slightly expensive for this kind of ambiance.

Pipers (9)

Tried their Crispy Calamari with Bali Hai sambal @ RM22. Seldom I would really like appetizer or this might look normal. One of the taste that makes this pretty good is chef own made Bali Hai Sambal as the taste of the sauce is light lime sour and spicy end. The rings of calamari is fried to perfection that its crispy on the outside yet the meat still maintain moist.

Pipers (10)

Thai Style Crab & Avocado Stack with creamy Lemon Dressing @ RM23. Presentation looks awesome, that filled with top layer creamy lemon dressing, then finely cut tomato, a layer of fresh season crabmeat with thai sauce and avocado base. Among so many starters, this is one of a kick ass. Slighltly creamy  and all aroma burst into flavor in the first bite, you can taste on the pale lemon taste yet freshness of crab meat and avocado.

Pipers (11)

Wild Mushroom Salad with Mizuna & Crispy Noodles @ RM24

Pipers (12)

When back to Penang usually, I always wanted to go back street food but my friend always end up bring me to this kind of places. When they told me to dinner is at Island Plaza, I thought they must be joking till they said I must try this Japanese Restaurant – Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine. Who can really resist Japanese Food?

Well, Island Plaza used to be one of the hottest spot to hang out 15 years ago before Gurney Plaza was constructed. One of a major place that most teenagers to hang out at that time, with many prime brands hosted there. Now they have gone major upgrading work to make it another look and feel.

Edo Ichi (1)

I got to know thru a friend that Ido Ichi Japanese Cuisine is actually under the group which Azuma Japanese Restaurant is also one of theirs. When I arrive, I am surprise by huge crowd and have to wait for 20 minutes for a table. Seldom will see this situation happen in Penang and its located inside Island Plaza, that makes me curious.

Edo Ichi (2)

They are operating 2-3 lots that make the dining area spacious with a few sections including sushi bar and close up area.

Edo Ichi (3)

Edo Ichi (4)

Price here are pretty decent and I compare to another of my favourite brand Sushi Tei in Gurney, its pretty much similiar

Edo Ichi (5)

 Then we ordered quite a lot for 5 pax and started of with Salmon Sashimi. Finely cut and its very fresh! @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (6)

For rolls, I would say that they have created their own signature style compare to others and tried both their Una Cheeze Maki @ RM 35 & Shake Mayo Mentai Roll @ RM 30. Both are equally good as ingredient are pretty generous and I like how the cheeze flavour makes it more unique with their own light sauce.

Edo Ichi (7)

I order something new that my friend have yet try is Tenderloin Cappaccio @ RM 35. It was all gone after I snap the picture. Thin slice beef that cut to perfection, with shoyu sauce and mayonnaise with the fine cut that makes it nearly melt in mouth. Order another plate again.

Edo Ichi (8)

Volcano Roll is not the best I have come across as I have tried better ones before. Overall, the cheese and mixture of ingredient in it is quite not bad for a Penang version. @ RM 28

Edo Ichi (9)

 This is the fellow who always wanted to maciam maciam places!

Edo Ichi (11)

Sukiyaki is pretty good too with the soup base quite salty as what I have learn, flavourfull that serve along with fine cut beef slice. It will be perfect during rainy season.  @ RM 30

Edo Ichi (12)

Yaki Gyuza @ RM 8 both item is nice to go along as Gyuza here won many places that I have tried, by pan fried the base perfectly to golden brown and ingredient in it a bit solid.

Edo Ichi (13)

Both Fried rice are equally good and I prefer more Scallop Fried Rice @ RM 12. Very fragrant with garlic with wok hei. We add extra garlic into our rice to make it extra kick. Seafood Fried Rice @ RM 12

Edo Ichi (14)

 

Edo Ichi (15)

By the time comes to this Avocado Guratan  we are all very stuff. Ended up I finish all this. If you love cheeze potato and some seafood this would be ideal for [email protected] RM 18

Edo Ichi (16)

Kimuchi Ramen turns out to be pretty good, mild spicy and sour end with thin slice of pork in it. Ramen is slightly overcook and if they can make it al dante then would be perfect bowl of noodle. @ RM 18

At the end of the meal, it was a very satisfying dinner with great food. If you are looking for some nice Japanese Cuisine, this outlet certainly would be one of my recommendation.

I have been to The Pool a few times for functions and friends party. Neither did I realise that there is actually a Japanese restaurant located above the premises  Its actually a new addition to the night spot and was previously operated by Spasso Milano before moving to Pavilion KL.- Kyoto Lab Japanese Restaurant

Kyoto (1)

With the restaurant name Kyoto Lab and there is actually a huge painting on the wall that resembles who is actually Kyoto for the restaurant.

Kyoto (2)

Its a very simple contemporary Japanese Restaurant with a simple touch of the culture.

Kyoto (3)

Simen wall and parquet wooden floor that made up the place and the best part is all their table is made of recycle materials (wood, steal and glass) which we are totally impress.

Kyoto (5)

Very simple menu with all the mains, appetizer and desert are available with reasonable pricing.

Kyoto (6)

A slight twist with western menu and some are infuse with beer.

Kyoto (4)

I was told that their yakitori range are pretty amazing.

Kyoto (7)

Kyoto Lab Summer Salad @ RM16

Kyoto (8)

Sashimi Nouyeou Salmon Trout turns out to be every ones favourite as a sashimi being drench with unique sweet and sour sauce, with a hint of slight spicy at the end. Certainly a unique dish as it is and worth to try!  RM25

Kyoto (9)

Kyoto (10)

Green Dragon @ RM24 – prawn rolled with Avocado.  Fresh fried prawns being roll along in the middle and make it one of a warm filling yet very fresh.

Kyoto (11)

California roll @ RM18

Kyoto (12)

This is one of my favorite for the night as cutting of mango cubes and tuna sashimi being rolled together.

Kyoto (13)

then comes the serving of yakitori range. . . Scallop Yakitori being grill to perfection. Soft and juicy and slightly chewy shows the freshness of the scallop. @ RM8

Kyoto (14)

Gyuniku Asparamaki turns out to be our favourite for the range as its thin slice beef being grill and season with their special sauce along with asparagus in it. Perfect! @ RM10

Kyoto (15)

Gyoza can be one of the best that I can find, pan fried perfectly on one sided that its crips and the filling in it is generous with ingredient, compact yet fragrant with their own seasoning. Soy sauce at the base make it a perfect combination.

Kyoto (16)

Egg plant

Kyoto (17)

Soft Shell Crab was finish within seconds as it was serve pippin hot, cripsy and soft inside. @ RM25

Kyoto (18)

Kyoto (19)

Australian Grain Fed Chilled Tenderloin @ RM60

Kyoto (21)

Back in Malaysia I rarely look at cocktail menu as they are pretty expensive and I must say I am totally impress with their cocktail menu here. Uniquely name and one of its kind. Then only get to know that its actually the same owner with The Hill Damansara. No wonder the watermelon looks alike~

Kyoto (22)

Jagger Bomb always comes into my mind but this outlet they make slight twist on it to Skittles Bomb @ RM20 Cointreau, Red Bull and Skittles, is the combination and taste good. Sweet-end with skittles if you leave it too long. Drink it when it was serve immediate.

Kyoto (23)

 Coco’s NutzMalibu, Rum & fresh coconut juice @ RM 28 is a must try cocktail with light coconut taste at the end yet alcohol kicks into your taste bud after that. Really one of its kind and no wonder they bagged the Winning Cocktail in 2011’s JTI Horeca Bartending Contest

Kyoto (24)

Watermelon Slush had made a big hit in their Hill Outlet as many people find this a good bargain and not only that, the presentation of the whole watermelon cut with at heart shape on it making it uniquely by itself and famous among couples. Till date its still one of their best seller. Doesnt taste alcoholic at all and its all overpower with watermelon taste and the more you drink, you will enjoy this drink alot as then the kick comes in, you can call it a night.. @ RM40

Kyoto (26)

This is no ordinary Milo Ais that you often took it at mamak stall, as the look of presentation might deceive you. They have made a special ingredient with it by adding Rum, Bailey, Kahlua and Milo @ RM 28

Kyoto (27)

Nutella Martini @ RM25

Food and drinks in Kyoto Lab certainly can impress us and of course it will be a great place to chill and dine with their amazing range both food and cocktail. Certainly I will be back~

Kyoto (29)

Right after the dinner, we head down to the main area to enjoy our next performance. . .

Kyoto (30)

Kyoto (31)

It was pack with people to see one of our youtube, or internet celebrity .. Who is that?

If you been to the new One Utama on their newly refurbish wing, you can get tons of F&B outlet there easily. One of the new discovery that we came accross is this shop located in between old and new wing right in front of Carls Jr I am not mistaken is this shop called Petite Millie.

[Update – No longer in Operation – Currently is Franco]

Petite Mellie (1)

A shop that had another outlet in Menara Kencana Petroleum in Solaris Dutamas called Millesime which some of you might heard of it before, along with the meaning of ‘vintage’ or ‘good harvest’.

Petite Mellie (2)

Why is it called Petite Millie? Is literally translated as ‘Little Millesime’, which opened its door early this year with the concept of modern European casual dining as well as the incorporation of fine dining as Millesime’s heritage.

Petite Mellie (3)

The restaurant serve some French-influence cuisine fresh with daily ingredients.

Petite Mellie (4)

Petite Mellie (5)

Petite Mellie (6)

Petite Mellie (10)

1) Leprechaun’s Brew @ RM 14

3) Goodness, Gracious, it’s Green @ RM14

Petite Mellie (11)

Chef Adam

Petite Mellie (13)

Here comes our dish and being bombard with first Roasted Leek and Potato Veloute @ RM12.50. Looks Creamy and pale to me that garnish with chives and avocado oil and certainly did impress me with the taste of it. Simple, not too creamy yet thick along with the taste of the fish is being detected.

Petite Mellie (14)

Provencale Root Vegetables and Brolotti Bean @ RM12.50. The tapenade is made with black olives, blended in a food processor until it becomes very smooth. I usually do not like anything that have tomato in it especially in soup but this is something that I can accept and well cook along with the carrot is soft by eating along with the soak crouton is just nice~

Petite Mellie (12)

Luv a Duck is a must that I had feel in love when it was serve. Simply look delicious from the serving itself. .Maybe I am a sandwich lover that something came out like that is hard to resist that serve along with peppered duck breast and fresh rocket leaves. The crust bread at the bottom is soft and pair well with all the ingredient and the duck breast is simply being cook well. @ RM23.50Recommended!

NED_0080

One thing that caught my attention that it had been long time since I had dine along something with poutine and this restaurant do serve it. Poutine is actually a dish of French Fries and fresh Cheeze curds covered with brown gravy sauce that origin from French Canadian. Some other restaurant have their own recipe or other ingredient being added along too.

I must say Poutine Cheek in Petite Millie is impressive! Taste of thick brown gravy cook along with shiitake mushroom with chunks of beef being cook medium well is just perfect. Cant stop eating this dish. another dish to be recommended! @ RM26.

Petite Mellie (15)

First of all the name of this dish is very tricky as it is called Very Atas One @ RM26. When other’s ask me what is the name of this dish, I told them is Very Atas One then they said woi..what is the name of the dish, I repeated myself again and they said don play la. .  I  show them with my very serious face~ Really!!! its called very Atas One, and they thought I am joking till I need to show them the menu. 😀

One of the reason that I think its called ‘Very Atas One’ as they have the might cube of blue cheeze sitting on top of  this dish cook along with thinly sliced of beef, and caramelized onions. Its a love and hate relationship of this dish either you enjoy or you do not like the taste of it. SEriously the blue cheese they have tone down already and its not very strong in smell nor taste. I guess its to suits every one taste bud. You have to mix it well, if not I manage to bite a chunk of blue cheeze that will just make you go beserk . .:D

Petite Mellie (16)

Iberian Beef Cecina serve along with Sliced air dried beef loin and capsicum concasee @ RM19,50

Petite Mellie (17)

Avocado and Crab… c’est une boone vie prepared with thyme, balmy lemon oil, refreshing chive, crab meat salad and Avocado @ RM19.50. I would called this French Pizza that serve in thin crust bread. Fresh baked and eat it while its hot.

Petite Mellie (18)

Another delightful dish is Emilia’s Tagliatelle al Duck Ragu is two ducks preparation, pesto and oregano. Love the texture of it and eat along with duck ragu is just aromatic in one bite! @ RM28.50. 

Petite Mellie (19)

One of Petite Millie Signature is White Truffle Oil Fish Pie @ RM36.50

Petite Mellie (20)

Love the pippin freshly toast crust that being cook along with white truffle oil baked fish pie with shiitake mushroom. After cutting the crust with cracking sound then the aroma of the soup just burst into the air make all of us eager to try it out. A bit creamy soup base and eat along with the crust is just a perfect pair~

Petite Mellie (21)

Bourguignonne Style Beef Bavette @ RM46.50

Chinese New Year, during family gathering, most of us when before dinner will enjoy ‘Lou Yee Sang’ together with family, friends and colleague. This is to mark and to wish for what you want for the year,which usually is good health and prosperous year. Nagomi

Nagomi now had come out with their version of Yee Sang which is quite tempting or I would say a good bargain for the kind of portion and price which is available from now till 20th February . .

nagomi (9)

let the leng luis intro you Nagomi style lou sang. .  Naomi and friends. ..

nagomi (10)

Nagomi Yee Sang is abit unique in style that add in with a bit of corn flakes and raw sashimi . .  ranging from tuna, salmon, amberjack and seabass and home made sauce.

nagomi (11)

Home-made sauce* and *Freshly made* ingredients.

RM48++ (2 pax)     RM88++ (6 pax)

nagomi (12)

Lets louuu sanggg ahhh . .  I wish this year be very prosperous, good health and  . .. . .

After Chinese New Year, love birds would be in hunt to bring their the other half to dine in a nice restaurant to celebrate this lovely remarkable day.

nagomi (1)

Of course Nagomi do have their very own style Valentine’s Dinner Bento @ RM 99++ served for one pax, that start to be available on 11th Feb-14th Feb. Its a big bento set.

nagomi (2)

Suzuki Senbei (Home-made Seabass Crispy Cracker) fried to crips, that squeeze with lime on top to add in extra kick of the flavour and I was asking Macky to give me his portion and he said I wish… a good, companion with beer.

Rose Shape Sashimi (Combination of Salmon & Tuna Sashimi topping with Tobiko) that is served thick in size and very fresh. Add on with a bit wasabi, is just salivating.

nagomi (4)

Love Sushi Roll  (Love Shape Sushi with Strawberry & Avocado), I like the texture of the rice which is just perfect with a slice of mini cheeze and strawberry is something unique in taste that I have try. A good combination for Valentine’s.

King Prawn with White Sauce (Grilled King Prawn with White Sauce), the prawn meat texture is solid that shows sign of freshness and grill then burn with white sauce is savoury.

nagomi (5)

What we feel that the star of the night is this very healthy meal, miso topping with Soba Soft Shell Crab Salada (Soft Shell Crab Salada serve with Buckwheat Noodle)

nagomi (6)

You have to pour the whole sauce onto of the soba then mix it around, eat it, and all of us are looking at each other’s portion hoping that the others wont finish it. The miso dressing is really really good, that I think its one of the best soba I had so far.

nagomi (7)

To end with something sweet, served with Chocolate Cheese Brownie.

nagomi (8)

As you see the expression of Naomi after finishing the whole Lover’s Bento herself, she is speechless when saw this big piece of brownie. Its not too sweet and I wish it would have been even more perfect if this brownie can top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

At the end of the meal, we were all very satisfied with the bento box and for person to finish a Lover’s bento its really huge, we were talking about for a couple can consider get 1 lovers bento and 1 Yee Sang for 2 then lou and wish for each other, but if you really love Jap food, the Lover’s Bento is definately a good recommendation by me. ..
