If there’s one thing about KL, you never go hungry! I ate exceedingly well there, thanks to friends to took me to cool places and quite often, bought me the meal as well. I certainly can’t stop myself from shooting photos of interesting food that arrived at the table, and thought that it merits a post of its own.
The night I arrived, my hosts Andy & Joyce took me to their favourite dinner place – Restoran OK. They serve up some tasty dishes like Butter Squid and Marmite Pork Ribs. The squid was a little dry but it was still nice. The place is pretty popular.
My photo, however are not terribly pretty, hence the smaller version. I apparently arrived in KL ahead of my photo mojo. Fortunately, they get better.
The above was my lunch on Day 2 of the KL LitFest. It was at Marmalade at Bangsar Village. It was ok-ish, but not spectacular. I heard that their cakes are good.
delicious is a restaurant under the Ms. Read clothing label. There is a certain irony in a plus size clothing store branching out into food, but as the name of the place suggests, it’s delicious food. I was there for dinner with Chet and Sharon.
Aglio Olio is the most basic of pasta – olive oil and a dash of herbs. There no way you can get it wrong, yet there is an art to getting it right. It was actually quite refreshing to have something plain because of all the rich food I’ve been eating. The waiter was good enough to tell me that the dish is plain pasta, in case I didn’t know.
Chet’s Nasi Something. Can’t for the life of me remember what it’s called now.
Joyce took me to Yut Kee Restaurant on Day 3. We ordered toast and their famous roti babi.
I had lunch at Mizu (Bangsar) with See Ming. We had a grant time pigging out and catching up. Everything was so incredibly delicious.
Joyce picked me up after and she wanted to get her lunch. We went to delicious again, but this time the outlet at The Curve. She had a salad and I had scones.
The salad was tangy and nice (although I won’t order salad), and the scones are like dried butter that returns to life in your mouth.
When will the eating stop?! :shock:
For dinner, we met up with Jude and another Kuching person Lisa. We went to William’s, which is a continental mamak near Lisa’s office.
My last day in KL. Joyce and I went to IKEA for breakfast. I had this:
Several hours of shopping later came lunch at Winter Warmers. Nice looking place, but unfortunately they were very understaffed and service wasn’t really up to scratch.
Phew! And that’s the last of the KL food photos. I have to say in most parts, I’m very impressed by the customer service in KL. Such a difference from the people here.
Thanks folks, for taking me to such neat places and making sure I’m fed!
