    [Food Review] Chai Bar Oasis Damansara

    Salads often get a raw deal and are not popular in general with the Malaysian public because we do simply love our meats. Some people even scoff at the idea of healthy eating, calling salads ‘rabbit food’ or ‘food for cows’, but lately, we have been getting a boost of a new era of restaurants and eateries popping up that promote healthy eating.  One in particular has caught our eye and fancy in more ways than one. We bring you the Chai Bar, nestled in the hub of Oasis Ara Damansara. Chai Bar was started just recently by two friendly young entrepreneurs Dennis & Edward, who are also coincidentally childhood friends.…

    Nanny’s Pavillon: The Airport Cafe Within An Airport

    We’ve extensively covered the food aspect of KLIA2 (read here to find out what’s there to fill your stomach with), but one place that’s made a prominent impact on us comes in the form of a quaint cafe. Say hello to Nanny’s Pavillon, or you can also regard it as the airport-themed cafe within an airport! Originating from Bandung in Indonesia, Nanny’s Pavillon is essentially a French American restaurant that specialises in hot meals and desserts. With its first Malaysian outlet situated in the newly opened Gateway@KLIA2 (which is the commercial zone of KLIA2), the food and beverage joint takes on an interesting concept. Regarded as Nanny’s Pavillon Porte Bagage, the cafe looks like an…

    Taste Of Two Cultures At Lao Jiu Lou “Old Restaurant”

    Japanese style, Chinese flavours – mix these two together and what you get is simple soul food at Lao Jiu Lou. If you’re a frequent visitor to Taman Desa KL, you’ll notice that this neighbourhood holds many secret gems. The latest is the charming hole-in the-wall Lao Jiu Lou or Old Restaurant that has both Chinese and Japanese influences. Simple is an apt word to describe Lao Jiu Lou. The cornerlot izakaya is without pretentions; walls are left bare save for a few figurines and portraits, red lanterns hung high in the ceiling, while tables and stools are reminiscent of old Chinese roadside joint. It is without much fanfare but…

    Breakfast With A Side Of Jam & Kaya

    We know that peanut butter and jam go hand in hand, and so does kaya and butter… but who would’ve thought that Jam and Kaya would be a match made in café heaven! Nestled within the premise of PJ Palms Sports Centre is an elevated little white hut with a spacious front porch and yard. And while it looks like something one can comfortably call home (at least to us), a quick glance on the signage proves that it is actually café that goes by the name of Jam & Kaya. Established December 2013, the homegrown café still needs some catching up to do in the gastronomic scene here in…

    A Kindled Coffee Affair at Rekindle, SS2

    Situated in the busiest part of SS2, Rekindle is a perfect place for those of you who need your night-time coffee fix. Opened for about a month, Rekindle is one cafe that had us going ‘why a cafe at this area?!’ Because come on now, who doesn’t know about SS2 Square and its many parking woes. Though, a quick chat with the boss made it all clear for us – Rekindle was intended for cafe-loving night owls. And since the commercial area’s parking predicaments would dissipate by 9pm, this cafe has high hopes of becoming your next go-to cafe after a tiring day of work, and when other coffee joints around the…
