Restaurant cozy place

I accidentally found this restaurant while doing some 'business' in Wangsa maju. It's tucked amidst a row of shop-lot at Suburman centre, Wangsa delima which is nearby to Wangsa walk shopping complex( the shop lot behind the brothers).

The surrounding was quite quiet. I called it a hidden gem nestled at Wangsa maju

Everything on the wall make it like a real English country house


Homely English filled environment
It creates a cozy and serene dining area with the dim light and the nostalgic decoration.
Sick of western food although you still wanna get that kind of English style dining feel..?
Don't worry, diners have a choice of dining on western food or local cuisine.
I've been craving for rice lately, so I ordered a very local ones, kampung fried rice. It was good but i wondered why they serve it with the raw vege. I can't accept the uncooked vege, yucks!
The ginger beef rice was not bad also, beef was tender and juicy.
Baked crap, something I have never tried before. The fresh crap was perfectly baked with the cheese, this is so heavenly. Where have you been in my past life??!!  Even we were's studded up with the mains, we managed to finish this as well.

Ginger beef rice

Baked crap- 5 stars food

Promotion dish- deep fried sotong ring

Aromatic cappucino is something unforgettable

Pink guava was soso. But you can't complain a RM4.90 juice
Love the aristocratic decor

Really good food prepared by the great chef.
Lovely service, the staff were very polite, responsive and well-dressed.
Relaxing background music that match the theme of the restaurant were played while we having our meal.
For the price, I would say it's cheap rather than reasonable. For the 5 dishes and 2 drinks we ordered, the bill came out to be only~ RM 56.
It's worth returning to check out the western food. Burps! Excuse me!

Here's the address:
No.27-29, jalan Wangsa delima 2A, KL.
Suburban Centre III, Section 5,
Wangsa maju, 53300 KL.

Kiki, taiwan cuisine

Kiki is located at 4th floor, suria KLCC. I've been to taiwan once and found the taiwan food was bland and almost odourless. Taiwanese seems do not use spice. I found Kiki was different since I tried it once with friends few months ago. It's was a pleasant meal as I remember, and I miss the sweet potato ball.
This was my second visit to kiki, with my colleague and "sifu". Sifu likes it very much, thanks god!
But I think they have integrated malaysian style of cooking method into the meal. Anyway, we like it!

The cozy interior

Set meal, a la carte is not available if not mistaken
Not sure what is it, but it's a nice complement to the meal

My fish fillet with egg and tomato, ho chiak!

Sesame chicken set meal

Mouth-watering sweet potato is a must try item

Everything was came with a compulsory sidedishes and soup. Since the food portion was quite generous, our tummy has gotten noticeable bigger after the meal. What a truly sinful meal!
Pricing is reasonable.
I don't remember how the service was as I was busy talking and eating.

Harrods, KLCC

Somehow it feels just right to be sitting down for a three tiered afternoon tea ensconced in the Harrods, KLCC. This is considered a high end afternoon tea because it was a little bit overpriced to me.

The restaurant was flooded with natural light made it a wonderful location to enjoy the english tradition of afternoon tea.
Picture on the wall added a vintage touch to the classy looking interior.
Staff was attentive but not intrusive.
Sandwiches such as smoked salmon sandwiches, roasted beef sandwiches and cucumber sandwiches were served on the bottom layer. They were good but not outstanding. I have tried a lot of scones over the years, most of them were rock hard and crumbly. But their scones were so perfectly baked.
I particularly like the blackcurrant jam and I found the jam is available from the shop for only RM26. As usual, we ordered the tea exclusively from Harrods and  a cup of coffee. Tea came by pot and refillable.
Black coffee was pretty boring, I expect they at least serve cappuccino. This coffee made me jittery and give me insomnia.

It's more filling than you would expect

RM120 for Two

Bottom layer is for finger sandwiches

Plain scones that are served warm

The scones were served with clotted cream, strawberry and blackcurrant preserves

Cakes and tartlets

Black Coffee

It's a relaxed spot to enjoy the afternoon tea. Like it but would be better if cheaper.
