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.

The Apartment is not like a new development or project that is upcoming. A place that had been establish with very homey concept as The Apartment was named. Understand that many of us dine outside after work very often as the outlet aims to provids a casual, comforting home dining experience set in a modern apartment-like restaurant setting that is located at The Curve shopping mall.

the apt (2)

With their cozy environment, I used to hang out here with my friend for drinks on weekends as they play great soft music as background music and perfect place to chill and chat.

the apt (4)

It is exactly like a house as this is one of the few sections I love to be seated around as I called it living room area or bed room style located one floor up.

the apt (5)

A simple DJ deck area to spin off some music. I guess we can be DJ ourselves too, by doing a mixture at home, plug and play here. :p

the apt (3)

For special functions or private events, definitely wound be one of the place to consider as can easily cater quite a crowd with their huge dining space.

the apt (9)

Ever dine before in your bathroom? Hehe, they do have a bathroom dining concept here too.

Okay, lets start off with what The Apartment have to offer and for the month of April, the have something special inhouse as currently they are doing The Chef Series that feature special serving of deep sea delicacies themed menu Unlimited Flavours Of The Ocean. They will be featuring in 2 parts as for Part 1 which is in April and Part 2 is on May.

the apt (12)

A flavorful Oyster Shot that prepare in shot glass to give you the after pleasure. I was told not to use spoon to dig up instead I just have to eat the whole thing like drinking a shot. Being a good follower I just follow and I am amaze on how the taste blend in. A bit sweet and sour from the mango, oyster is fresh that the after taste is fresh and refreshing. I do not mind to have another 2-3 more shots. 😀  RM11.90

the apt (15)

Next is the steak which is prepare medium well that comes to my liking and for the first time I see a steak pair with prawns mixture with  au jus, garlic, chillies, honey glazed tiger prawns & mash. Surf ‘n’ Turf is one of the latest addition to the menu.

the apt (16)

Almond Crusted Cod is one of my favourite for the night. Cod is very soft and fresh, with a gentle cut in between it just open instantly. Almond was fried crispy and brings the aroma out of it, cook along with some clams make it sweet and a bit sourish taste of tomato that makes the taste perfectly good! I just drink the soup base till dry. The cod nevertheless was being attack and gone within seconds. – Highly Recommended!

the apt (17)

Red Snapper @ RM39.90

the apt (18)

Pan fried red snapper with couscous and lemon butter reduction is one of the dish that suits most of our local people here as one of the reason I am saying this is most of our locals love to have their meals with rice. Therefore a simple pan fried fresh snapper and pair along with flavorful rice is good~

the apt (19)

Stuffed Squid is heading towards more of our local taste, a bit spicy on the end yet juicy squid being stuff with risotto to make it solid and goes along with the gravy. Every one just loves it. @ RM25.90

the apt (13)

Another dish that I like is Jamie’s Duck Pasta that brings you Fettuccine with shredded slow-roasted duck and tomato red wine ragout, topped with toasted pine nuts. Not many places that can cook this well especially with duck involve, and they have make it good with slices of duck meat cook along with red wine and the tomato taste just did not over power everything. Highly Recommended!

the apt (20)

Looking for something not so complicated then go for Tossed Pasta Plain is very simple yet flavourful as some of them just like their portion with lots of chili flakes. Too much will make your tongue numb yet its nice. 😀

the apt (21)

Prawn Capellini with tiger prawns, lemon zest, olive oil and marjoram.

the apt (22)

English Lamb Curry is another new addition to the menu. They are being generous with the lamb as its quite a big piece for a portion like that, well marinated and cook till the lamb is soft and serve along with special briyani, egg, carrot raita (yoghurt) and cashew nuts.  – Recommended!

the apt (23)

After great main dish on the table and it always have to get something sweet as ending and comes with Creme Brulee that is perfectly burn on the top to make a fine thin crips while your spoon poke upon it gives you a crack sound after that. Top with a scoop of ice cream and pretty good enough to make the sweet [email protected] RM13.90

the apt (24)

A desert that reflect much on our local delicacies as this  Buah Melaka Desert serve  palm sugar dumpling served and coconut ice cream @ RM12.90

the apt (25)

Premium Dark Chocolate Cake & Banana Pecan Cake 

the apt (26)

It used to be a hype on Red Velvet Cake and I have only tried once so far and this would consider the second time. I love this piece more with the texture of the cake is nice and the two cheeze layer is being put with the right amount that does not give you the feel of too much and strawberry dressing pairs it well. – recommneded

the apt (27)

For those who loves chocolate alot then you would not want to miss this Chocolate Mousse

the apt (28)

When this Baked Chocolate Pudding, every one’s eye was set on it and had make this desert super star for the night with its oozing chocolate syrup flow out along and with a scoop of ice cream being serve along and it is being freshly done from the oven and serve piping hot as upon this order you would have to wait for 15-20 minutes to get it. It was all worth the wait. I certainly would love to have this desert all by myself! not going to share! – Highly Recommended! 

the apt (29)

For those of you prefer something not that sweet then this slice definately suits your taste bud as Homemade Carrot Cake served with mascarpone cream and carrot syrup.

To have a good food is always a bonus and satisfying. The catch is, good food is always hidden some where and needed to be hunt. That is why we always we love to hunt for hidden food. Let me introduce you another great restaurant which is a hidden gem in Bukit Damansara that serve Aria Traditional Italian Dining.

Aria (1)

Aria (2)

Interior of the restaurant is pretty straight foward that offer cozy ambiance that suits for your business, family and friends hang out spot.

Aria (3)

Seems like the owner is a big fan of Macallan that is also one of my favourite.  :D, found out that he loves single malt alot~

Aria (4)

Aria (5)

If you are looking to host small functions or towards more private session with friends and family, they do have this room to offer with cozy sofa and a tv build in with sliding wooden door to close up.

Aria (6)

For this session, we were given the opportunity to sample some food and we were hosted right upstairs that usually they host for private business function.

Aria (7)

In Italian dining, Bruchetta will always be in the menu as its a very simple and delightful starter to start off with. Simple freshly cut tomato season along with their special dressing that just makes this perfect.

Aria (8)

This is a must order if you do visit this restaurant. Mushroom Bruchetta that cook till perfection and season correctly with their own special sauce and dressing that makes the mushroom taste stand out. – recommended

Aria (9)

as the night starting, we were pamper with Processo Vento is actually champange in Italian version. A champange that easy to go down as its Light and bubbly

Aria (13)

Aria (10)

Lamb Kebab with Aria’s Special Mint Sauce @ RM28

Aria (11)

It looks simple that filled with many skewers as Minced lamb in flavourful onion, bird eye chili, lemon grass, ginger, coriander seed, salt and pepper covered in Aria’s special spicy mint sauce. The sauce is a bomb! By dipping along with the sauce just makes the mince lamb perfect. I dip till to the last drop.

Aria (12)

I love my Italian pizza in thin crust that turns out this Hawaiian Pizzeta @ RM26. A simple pizza that serve along with turkey ham, pineapple, mozarella & oregano and I enjoy it just plainly like that without adding any sauce.

Aria (14)

I have been looking for nice Risotto since after I have been back from overseas. Not many places can actually cook this dish to my liking and I am suprise to find Seafood Risotto in here is just perfect. The risotto cook till its soft and a bit sticky, along with mix seafood that makes it a bit sweet in taste and sour tomato taste just blends in well RM36

Aria (15)

Aglio-Olio Smoke Duck Pasta @ RM36

Aria (16)

This is actually one of their signature in da house and there is no doubt that we were told must sample this, and after we tried it out, we only realize why its a must to try out. Spaghetti was cook till al dante and springy with hint of light olive oil and the taste of salty smoke duck just bring’s up the taste. – Recommended!

Aria (17)

Grilled Tenderloin @  RM70

Aria (19)

For those who loves steak, Medium rare is always my preference as to get the tenderloin remains juicy on every bite. Even better with the first cut and you can see the blood ooze out, as his find piece serve along with sauteed vege, roasted potatoes and a choice of garlic rosemary, black pepper and brown sauce.

Aria (18)

Super smooth fish meat that nears to melting in your mouth when you put it in as this Merluzzo Canadese Atlantico (Canadian Cod Fish)  topped with olive tapenade, vegetables and laden with Mediterranean sauce serve it light and yet very flavourful.  RM65

Aria (20)

As the owner is a big fan of single malt and he let us sample different types of single malt and those 2 are very new to me as I have never heard before for Bruichladdich  and Auchentoshan 18 years old, anything that you hit on with 18 years old would be a bomb. Yamazaki definately need not to explain as its not a stranger to many single malt lover which is the first choice in my list.

Aria (21)

This 10 years old taste very good as the taste is impressive, not too spicy, yet very smooth easy to down with on the rock. Perfect to pair with seafood as it will bring out the freshness taste of the food as we pair it with the cod. Just perfect! Definitely would love to have one bottle of this to keep for my collection. As i have never seen this in the air port.

The restaurant also do sell these bottles whiskey Macallan 12 & 18 years, Auchentoshan 12 & 18 years, Clynelish 14 year as well as Japanese whiskey both blended Hakushu 12-year and single malt Yamazaki 12-year. Price is very reasonable.

Aria (23)

Apple strudel with custard sauce @ RM23

Aria (22)

Aria (24)

Tiramisu @ RM20

Aria (25)

Then to close the whole meal up, the floor manager serve us their special coffee.

I would say, this restaurant is in my recommendation list as for the price and the quality of food hidden in the neighborhood, definitely this is worth to hunt for and a recommended restaurant for Valentine’s Day which is just tomorrow and you still have yet to find a restaurant…Try this out. Great food~

As one of the latest crave for a foodie is hunting for Non-Halal food which is mushrooming especially on pork burger or for to hunt for a satisfied porkie meal. It was on a trip recently to celebrate Karen’s Birthday and again I was put in charge for hunting ground, a suggestion came up by Kebbie mentioning Sanbanto then I went to Google it up that they do have good reviews from bloggers and decided to go there. Then a restriction came up that it takes time to travel there as its in SS2. Then after a while I found out that they have a branch now in Puchong at IOI Boulevard that is called the Pork Place which is one of a upcoming center for FnB heaven that I think its very similar to Sunway Giza.

If you are craving for pork burger and you type the word in Google, guess which restaurant that pop out? CrisTang is no longer a stranger to most of the foodie, this is not an ordinary burger like our fast food chain or Ramly burger, when comes to the crave of this, I have been reading a lot of foodie blog about this place with certain selection which is must have or must try! Famous Pork Burger CrisTang

It was not until recently, I manage to drag my colleague to dine at this place which I have been wanted to go for so long~ In this restaurant, besides the famous pork burger, they have a unique dressing which is sambal petai to add onto the burger!

Christang

Cristang Restaurant is located at 8 Avenue Business Centre Seksyen 8 PJ, which for the first time I took the wrong turn and lead me to one big round to reach this place.

Christang (7)

This are my siau bestie, colleague that makes them a good drinking, travelling and siau people to go along with but the day turns very miserable for one of them.

Christang (8)

This place cannot be denied that they serve pork, so piggy is everywhere with the pillow for you to sit on and to accompanied you eating too.

When we look at the menu, its full with temptations, with the description written in it, everything sounds delicious. Comes to a conclusion that, we start off with a must order item . . . . Besides serving their famous pork burger, they do have other selection such as pasta, western food and some local cuisine to choose from. Their famous pork burger with P1 – P9 to choose from.

Genre: Romance

I never thought that, I would get addicted to this show, I guess any drama series related to cooking/food or dance I would always never miss it, in any language as long as I can understand I would not miss it.

For those who had been following me on my tweeter or as my Facebook friends, that I have been craving for Italian food recently, the cause and damage of it was from this movie that my friend had send me, as she said since I love food, why not watch this series.

This show is more on romance as it was about a dream of a young woman that dreams to become the elite chef of La Sfera restaurant and work hard on her way up. Of course, love happens when the restaurant hire a new chef that had vast experience from Italy that had made him one of the recognize chef in Korea. This is where the love spark started.

This movie also constantly makes me crave for Italian food because of the way of the food presentation and also its in fine dining concept yet also makes me consider going back into relationship, with the assistant young chef innocent and shy look. Lol~
If you love food, then this movie would definitely worth a watch.

Remark: if you crave of Italian food, please do not blame me.

You can watch the series at this website
