ALMOND HONEY MUSTARD-132 kcal (MYR 8.80)
Mixed coral lettuce, tomatoes, shredded red cabbage, orange and almond flakes in Epic’s honey mustard dressing. Surprisingly, it doesn’t taste bland but I must say the dressing is a very sapid pairing indeed. The overall flavor has been refreshingly enhanced alongside the sweet oranges amidst the nutty crunch of almonds. I personally find it exceptionally palatably amusing.

Kudos!
It was so tasty that we finished up the whole pizza unexpectedly by ourselves, which are usually not the case, haha.

Welcome to Kampong Kravers, a local establishment serving what’s best loved by Malaysian.
You could expect a variety of authentic Malaysian delicacies made fresh without any preservatives, colouring or artificial flavorings but yet still serving the local delights deliciously.
Been gracing the taste buds of many of us here at its Lot 10 Hutong outlet since Dec 2014, Kampong Kravers is more famously known for its uber crispy and a healthier version of what’s our favourite breakfast other than nasi lemak? It’s curry puffs!
This old family recipe of curry puffs are oven-baked till crispy thus explains the lesser miserable oil dripping fuss that we often encounter and yet still incredibly served up with assorted flavours to whet your discerning palate. As such, it’s best eaten warm once dished up to secure that yummy crunch hot from oven, and yet would not induce any overt guilt.
Foodies could help themselves from mutton massala, apple custard, spicy tuna, durian, sweet potato, spicy anchovy, sardine, cempedak and many more. And yea, there are some interesting new sweet twist being introduced such as the cempedak, which also reminds me of the cempedak cake from Swich Café. Hmmm, how can’t I recall such cheeky varieties during my early childhood yea? (=
You are bound to be spoilt for choices with so much tempting fillings to win your palate over.
Generally they are available in two sizes, either the regular or the XL, both are easy to eat even if you are always on the go as relevant packaging are available for the respective purpose.
And for the city folks especially the busy working people, these ready-to-used homemade pastes would make your meal preparation for the family much easier. It is conveniently packed, using a blend of the freshest ingredients of herbs and spices from a homey recipe, making home-cooked food never been so easy and nutritious. In a short while, you’d see the awesome kick from the sambal paste being used in their savory dishes which we’re about to review later that includes nasi lemak and chicken curry.
Kampong Kravers’s ready-to-use curry paste contains no MSG, no added preservatives, no artificial colouring and 100% Halal.
Other Kampong condiments that call for more Kraving are the Extremely spicy “hot bilis” and Healthy Lemongrass, Ginger & Pandan Herbal Tea, priced at MYR10.50 and MYR 26.40 respectively.

It was exactly monthversary when we visited Le Pont Boulagerie which opens its door to public on 4 June 2015 during a soft launch. Even then, words have got around excitingly among epicureans of Klang Valley, and eventually, the beckoning signal reaches our gastronomic radar (=
Le Pont means "The Bridge" in French. Like the name suggests, this is a place where the gaps are bridged and ideas are connected over good food and drinks.
There are 2 upper floors for dine in basically with the Ground Floor meant for take-away, which also houses the pastry kitchen helmed by Chef Fadzly and his team, whilst the dehydrated guests could get their thirst quenched at Beverage & Bar counter at First Floor and the final Second Floor opened to public is where savory kitchen is situated to dish up scrumptious repast by chefs seasoned with 3-Michelin star experience to whet your palate discerningly.
While anchoring French pastry as its backbone, the carte du jour interestingly covers various cuisines, ranging from modern European and Italian, as well as imparting some Japanese flair too.
F&B quality is utmost emphasized here, even preparing just a normal lemon tea but great details and efforts are added to it, and this synergy is what actually manoeuvring the business briskly behind Le Pont Boulangerie.
Embarked with an élan wooden décor, copious with multi-faceted vintage setting, this French bakery café is poised to draw you over for what is defined by true panache of authentic French boulangerie, pleasantly served at a truly affordable price.
Coming from the idea of interconnecting each other, the union concept is indeed intensely showcased in its contemporary interior design and asymmetrical built-up that exudes a sense of simplicity harmoniously but elegantly set forth at the same time, as well as reflective of its fusional bill of fare.
At Le Pont, from soup to salad, there’s no appetite too big or small. Get ready to relish from…….. Le Pont Mushroom Soup (MYR 9.90) Served with house special sauteed mushroom toast
Pumpkin Soup with Mustard Seed and Squids Salsa (MYR 13.90) Smooth and creamy pumpkin soup with a twist of tanginess
There is even Beet Root Soup, but only available with a combo set, not ala carte yet. A refreshingly light and squeaky-clean palate to beet root fans, an acquired taste to some otherwise.
Salad Nicoise (MYR 13) The classic French salad with green bean, tuna, chopped egg and shallot vinaigrette.
Le Pont Caesar Salad (MYR 13) Special Le Pont Caesar salad comes with a slow-cooked egg, crispy fried white bait, seaweed croutons and shaved parmesan cheese
Aioli with Seasonal Vegetables (MYR 9.90) The traditional French way to enjoy seasonal veggies. Isn't it a vibrant hors d'oeuvre? ^_^
Le Pont crudités comes with house made pickles especially the radish, which tasted zestily tangy! On top of that, the carrot sticks are really crunchy and i never imagine cauliflower could actually be enjoyed raw (being the typical Chinese) and it's so crisp! The aioli complements well but i don't mind it to be more garlicky, yum!
Sandwich Combo (MYR 22.30)
The ‘best hits’ from selection of sandwiches, ranging from beef sandwich, smoked salmon sandwich, tuna egg sandwich and vegetarian sandwich, comes with truffle fries and garden salad.
Amusingly, my personal hits were the eggy tuna and vegetarian type. The seemingly kelp is wonderfully interwoven in its Japanese flair as well as the vegetarian nosh that gave a tough rival with its flavouful grilled greens too, somehow also reminds me of the ratatouille. Yum yum!Beef
Feta cheese, zesty salsa verde and marinated capsicumSmoked Salmon
Sliced cucumber and farm tomato some gold flakesTuna Egg
Marinated seaweed and farm tomato with some silver flakesVegetarian
Grilled zucchini, eggplant, red onion, capsicum and topped with basil sauce
As suggested by Le Pont, no spoon is required in enjoying these simply hearty grubs!
Up next is from the hot kitchen to your tastebud with tenderly prepared house specials that gonna please your palate decadently.
Braised Beef Brisket (MYR 33.80) Perfectly cooked beef brisket served with buttery potato puree and ratatouille. Meat was tenderly cooked thankfully, and easily to fork through the succulence.
When it comes to serving the freshest and finest ingredients to the best selection of pastas, always prepare it al dente. Anchovy Linguine (MYR 17
Pasta tossed with anchovy sauce, seasoned with seaweed, then topped with chopped parsley. Daintily served with anchovy grissino (long slender crusty breadstick) that delightfully executed with the mild brininess. Ideal pick for people who is not so keen on creamy based pasta but appreciates subtle shade of gravy.
Squid Risotto (MYR 18.80) Classic white risotto (cheese based) with sautéed squid. I like it as 80% cooked for the perfect nuance
Soon beverage and coffee to refresh, calm or excite you, just like the affagoto. From Les Classique; Rose Latte (MYR 12.50)
Affogato (MYR 12) Premium inhouse made vanilla gelato using fresh vanilla pods to pamper you with the delicate velvet-textured. Only specially available with affogato only.
……….and the rich indulgent Hot Chocolate (MYR 11)
And certainly not calling it a day without taking away some of the mouthwatering freshly baked pastries!
Almond Danish (MYR 4.90)
Sundried Tomato with Basil (MYR 4.50) Really love the freshly made and preservative-free loaf, spongy and saporous. I particularly love the sweet-sourish of the sun dried tomatoes that blends really well with the basil, which is also one of my favourite herb. Yum yum!
Mini Croissant (MYR 1.50) The version of ‘krwah-sahn’ (as pronounced by the native, hehe) from Le Pont doesn’t fall far from the tree of a good French croissant. Each bite is fluffily flaky and most importantly, soft and buttery at the same time.
There's a simple elegance illustrated from the first course of bright veggies, fresh herbs, scrumptious soups, tantalizing entrées to aromatic cup of joe using its ‘Bridging blend’. From classic to modern flavors, the gastronomic journey takes you to an impeccable start then en route to wrapping up the meal on a satisfying note. From the first bite to the last sip, bliss!

Located at one of Petaling Jaya’s chic entertainment and dining pulse, The School at Jaya One, is where The Scot’s is, offering whisky connoisseurs as well as food aficionados a diverse selection of scotch whiskies and scrumptious cuisine to match their remarkable expectations.
A dedicated bar, adjacent to the entrance of The Scot’s, offers an amiable setting for cocktails and pre-dinner drinks. It is the place where fond memories of the past are shared and new friendships are formed.
Specializing in 122 types of single malt and blended whiskies as well as featuring a wide range of international wines and imported premium beers, The Scot’s brilliantly complements these drinks with an exceptional food menu alongside chef special tapas menu for those looking for some light bites to accompany their dining and wining moment.
Step into The Scot’s and your gaze will fall upon its impressive interior; the dark wooden flooring paves the way for patrons while the old brick wall effect and designer lights beckon you to immerse yourself in the warmth of this place. Ah, they do cater for more opulence enclave should you have wider budget in mind for their 2 different themed VIP rooms.
Its interior provides a warm and inviting sight for weary eyes. The Scot’s contemporary take on a whisky bar creates an atmosphere of ease for patrons to feel unperturbed and ready to indulge.
THE SCOT’S SALTED EGG YOLK SQUID (MYR 34)
Deep fried squid with salted egg yolk and served with meculin salad.
Each squid ring is very crisply chewy and deliciously coated with the salted egg batter that tastes really good in fact. It gets so additive that they are gone within seconds and certainly, one of the recommended dish to try here.
BACON ONION RING (MYR 15)
Deep fried bacon onion ring served with chilli garlic sauce and meculin salad
Another appetizer that resembles my previous cerviche experience.
BACON FRIED RICE (MYR 28)
Fried rice served with bacon and prawn. A marriage of Western-Eastern fusion, the rice is woofed up with the right ‘wok hei’ and each grain of rice is fluffily flavoured, furthered enhance by the bacon savory with the juicy huge prawn.
PORK CORDON BLEU (MYR 38)
Crispy pork roulade stuffed with cheese and ham, served with Japanese java curry sauce accompanied with mashed potato and asparagus.
A familiar sight for those who enjoy cheese and ham, this cordon blue takes a fresher twist by using pork instead of the usual chicken or fish. Love the crunchy crunch of the asparagus but would be better if the meat is moister and perhaps, a little more helping of cheese gravy would be helpful.
DRAGON VERMICELLI (MYR 34)
Glass noodle served with river prawn. Strings of slurp-worthy glass noodles delectably dished up with the saporous sauce, accompanied by springy prawns which are really fresh I must say.
Now we have charcoal grill skewer, some pretty decent alternative to our recent yakitori feast from Gyu-Kaku yeah? (=
SQUID HEART SKEWER (MYR 22- 3 sticks)
The cutlets of squids are indeed beautifully skewered and glazed with special sauce.
PORK BELLY WITH LEEK SKEWER (MYR 24)
A rather more luscious and gratifying grubs, this pork belly is perfectly grilled to perfection to achieve the right tenderness for the supreme succulence, Adequately smothered with caramelized sauce for some sweetness that indirectly reminds me of enjoying char siew too. Thumbs up!
What’s best to wrap up the fabulous fête other than white wine, coupled with some crystal-clear premium sky juice; from refreshing citrus beverages to a tough rival of the
Tennents Stout (MYR 42/pint)
This Scotland stout boasts a much smoother running in the palate, compared to the mass.
Chateau Michel Lynch Blanc (MYR 42/glass, MYR 198/bottle)
Very pale colour with silver glints, heady nose of white flowers, highlighted with notes of pink grapefruit and pineapple on agitation. The mouth is rich and fresh possessing a fine aromatic finish on toasted almonds and orange peel
S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna are well known as the fine dining waters on tables worldwide, both in elegant restaurants and at home and widely appreciated by the leading figures of the culinary scene. These two historical Italian classics are highly appreciated due to their appealing values and their elegant balance of taste.
Acqua Panna (MYR 15- 500ml)
Still Natural Mineral Water that is limpid and luminous, and comes without any effervescence or odour.
Or more popularly known as still water of fine dining, Acqua Panna is as light as a feather to the taste, pleasantly soft and velvety on the palate. It also makes an ideal palate cleanser in between meals when preparing to savour wine sensuously. Essentially, it helps to enhance even the most delicate flavours,
San Pellegrino (MYR 15- 500ml)
Sparkling Natural Mineral Water that helps to brings out the best in the tastiest dishes and aroma, and in this case, our white wine.
San Pellegrino whets the taste bud with reasonably fine bubbles to stimulate the tingling freshness
Refreshing sparkling fruit juices (MYR 12-200ml)
Arancianta Rosso (Red Orange)
Mandarino (Mandarin Orange)
Or may be just a homey warm drink to rejuvenate you like the Hot lemon Tea (MYR 15). Concocted with original taste that will amuse you palatably with its tangy citrusy and lemony aroma.
Moreover, make your way over to the imported leather lounge chairs for a restful moment, as you admire the magnificent floor-to-ceiling glass whiskies and wine display credenza showcasing The Scot’s finest brands.

remember to give this place a check soon for another fruitful epicurean discovery.
Cheers for now and Carpe Diem! ❤ℒℴѵℯ❤

Indeed, this is what La Casa literally exudes the moment you step into this quaint, cozy establishment that specializes in Western and Italian flairs, gracing the expatriate-centric neighbourhood at Verve Suites, Mont Kiara over a year ago.
Embarked with a multi-faceted design of wooden fixtures and quirky furnishings completes with warm lightings, La Casa certainly lives up to a relaxing enclave to unwind within its comfy confines of spacious 1,900 sq ft interior and a 500 sq ft alfresco dining area.
Replete with eye-catching throw pillows and olde-worlde bookshelves filled up with bottles of assorted relishes and ceramic stacks, there is no reason why this homey establishment not going to lure you over to dine and drink splendidly especially with their awesome breakfast menu!
Not so hipster but more on cozy environment with comfort food.
Unique and enchanting chairs adorned with some curlicue element.
Befitting its name which means The House, most of the food here are inhouse prepared from scratch and sourced from the freshest ingredients without any MSG or preservatives by all means. May, the founder of La Casa, is a true advocate of eating real food and live well. After all, you are what you eat, ain't you?
Let’s check out what we sampled the other day to kick start our morning fantastically!
GRANOLA MUESLI WITH YOGURT (MYR 22)
Healthy homemade muesli consists of toasted grain, nuts, seeds and dried fruits served with seasonal, fresh fruits, honey and housemade yogurt. The strawberries are especially very sweet and blend in well with all the yogurt-drizzled companions!
BREAKFAST GNOCCHI (MYR 28)
Homemade gnocchi with pesto, spicy Italian chicken sausage, egg cocotte and wild rocket with parmesan and balsamic dressing. The inhouse prepared wurst was definitely a star-stellar with its sapidity and chewy bites. Now I need not to worry about synthetic stuff whenever enjoying my fave sausages for I knew that the casing used to hold the homemade sausages here origins from natural source. Kudos!
ONE PAN BREAKFAST (MYR 32)
Comes with choice of homemade chicken, spicy Italian chicken or beef sausage, turkey bacon, roasted cherry tomatoes, baked beans, sunny side up, wild rocket and toast.
Your ubiquitous yet not so conventionally executed Continental breakfast, surely will win you over with its tastily done bouncy Italian chicken sausage and terrific salt & pepper sausage! My personal favourite goes for the original flavor, to be paired with the fragrantly sautéed mushrooms and juicy cherry tomatoes.
TRUFFLE SCRAMBLED EGGS WITH WAFFLES (MYR 23)
Truffle fans are in treat again!
Served with mesclum salad on the side, this innovative plate of truffled-infused scrambled egg comes well-armoured with very crispy waffle on the crust that uses special fold in method of meringue, rendering a very fluffy and buttery nuance. If the mushy egg could go tad easier on the sodium, it’s a brilliant recipe from La Casa undeniably!
BRIOCHE FRENCH TOAST (MYR 22)
Fluffy brioche served with caramelized apple, crispy popcorn, cream and maple syrup, easily makes it a lovely brunch!
BERRIES WAFFLES (MYR 20)
You can never go wrong with this- waffle with mixed berries, caramelized walnut, toasted almond flakes, cream and honey. Each bites of the freshly made waffle were truly engaging with its aromatic buttery hint. Optional to top up at only MYR5 for a dollop of homemade vanilla ice cream, slurps!
And now, we’re just in time to call in the dulcet treats for the sweet tooth.
SAINT HONORE ISPAHAN (MYR 15)
Pillowy-soft profiteroles filled with a light rose mascarpone cream, fresh raspberries and litchis.
LEMON TART (MYR 12)
Mini pastry shell filled with lemon cream topped with lemon zest and glaze. Expect a moist and piquant velvet custard engulfed within the buttery tart.
SWEET PLEASURES (MYR 14)
A dainty piece of layered chocolate and hazelnut praline, coalesced with milk chocolate ganache, and light chocolate mousse- bliss! It’s not overwhelmingly sweet but each morsel bits of this gateau is just sensuously gratifying with the varlhona richness and liberally transfused with hazelnut fragrance. Couldn’t ask for more with my fave choc brand in it, yumz.....
What’s better to complement the sumptuous gourmet spread other than a good cup of Joe?
And so coincidentally, bumped into a tomodachi whose aromatic coffee I’ve always enjoyed, Masa- san. It’s nice meeting you again! Arigato gozaimasta!
FLAT WHITE (MYR 11)
CAPPUCINO (MYR 11)
LATTE (MYR 11)
PICCOLO LATTE (MYR 11)
