Kara – Conceptual French Cuisine, Kota Damansara (Sunway Giza Mall)


This contemporary French joint is all set with autumn-hued dining room and that neat and immaculate table arrangements. Lighting that creates a warm and intimate vibe that will heat up the heart before the stomach warms up for the main course, with a free flow of salad and appetizers at the salad bar. Indulge in Kara’s lunch offerings, including starter soda, one main of the day, and a spread of free flow salad and appetizers.

Beautifully served in champagne flutes, the Elderberry and Elderflower mix of soda cordials.


This salad bar is most lauded with bruschetta and slaws, and most delicious selection of cheese and olive. The hype surrounding its launch wasn’t prominent, but this polished tribute to the ultimate French contemporary is still charged with dynamite je ne sais quoi from affordable lunch serving through to romantic dinner. There is an entire service team making sure this contemporary restaurant living up to its reputation in both exceptional customer attention and culinary innovation. We are talking about set lunch buffet of RM 25+ and that is an absolute steal when it comes to value for money French cuisine.

Kara has tinkered little with the nostalgic transatlantic dishes, and we enjoyed the salad bar. But the pasta main course that followed was over-cooked: though well executed and teamed with a light pasta sauce, and cubes of salmon chunks seemed a match. Much better was the beef and chicken ratatouille, served in the portion perfect for lunch. Gravy for beef might be a little heavy but to have that with the bread is amazing. The tender beef helps balance it all but it needs more herbs. Some tweaks could be good but the portions are generous and price tags are small, it is worth every cent for quality like this, in particularly in relation to the ace ingredients and supremely innovative flavours.

Quiznos Sub at Jaya Shopping Center

Quiznos Sub Malaysia


Quiznos Sub first opened their doors in Malaysia years back and is still serving fresh and quality ingredients with all their recipes for bread, soup, and dressings developed in house so know that the flavour profile will be distinctly exclusive. And just like every other sandwich outlet, toasted sandwiches have long been practiced since it’s been heard off. Yet what sets them apart from many and mainly their main competitors is the fact that the whole sandwich is toasted and that the crunchy sensation is exquisitely memorable. Speaking of crunchy sensation, the bread on the pizza is nothing doughy or bread alike. Thin crust almost crackling crunchy was a stealer.

This sandwich kiosk offers a comprehensive best for on the go or takeaway including sandwiches, pizzas, waffle fries and soups for any seeking the comforting warm and creamy start. But the astounding selection has never been any closer to our heart when they roll out their recent highlight – The Laksa Sub. That’s right you heard it right and you hear it first here on foodeverywhere. Who needs a bowl when you can have laksa in a sub? Big chucks of real chicken meat with succulent and juicy bites and the tang that’s tantalising, this one just will just leave you astoundingly anticipating their next season menu – the green curry. Look out for that as well.

Quiznos Sub scores points for its smart packaging, and for the quality of their servings if not the quantity, though the fillings tuna evoke a sense of déjà vu. The bread though, invariably has a crispier outer crunch, tastes fresh. Mesquite chicken comes with the generous tiles of moist, tender chicken, cheddar cheese, tomato, onion, lettuce and ranch dressing. Choose between sub or pizza and pay RM 12.20 or RM 18.80 for either a 4 inch or a 8 inch sub and RM 13.10 for this as a pizza. Tuna sub here with a choice of wheat bread here has tuna, cheddar cheese, tomato, lettuce and red vinaigrette. And for all the meat monsters out there, fret not because there is the zesty steak to load up that protein in your meal. This one has got steak, mozzarella cheese, cheddar cheese, onion, mushroom, sweet honey mustard and zesty grille sauce.

Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen @ Sunway Pyramid


From miso to tonkotsu made with that long-simmered pork bone broth, to some simple light soya sauce-based soup, we’d have no problem getting the ramen fix in all sorts of forms in the Klang Vallley. In the most authentic and traditional restaurants to some fusion contemporary cafes that are always trying something a bit different than the rest, it really isn’t challenging to grab that steaming bowl of Japanese noodle in broth. But as to exactly where the best ramen joints are at, is still a question with no definite answer. The newest in Sunway- the Menya Miyabi Hokkaido Ramen is one with decidedly classic looking ramen bowls with short pages of menu featuring a handful of ramen selections. We’ve slurped our way through some of the noodles on the menu and rounded up the conclusion if the place is a dupe .


First and foremost, the place is about ramen. Because menu is straight forward with pictures and quick description. The short and simple menu makes ordering easy, but I recommend the seasonal Burnt Garlic . I personally can’t get over the brined noodles thanks to the powerful broth. But the loaded topped garlic were unmistakeably garlicky, the whole experience is rich, flavour and might even leave some wanting more. Gyoza (six pieces for RM13, 10 pieces for RM19) wasn’t something memorable and elegantly presented. But that is the character seen in typical Japanese dumpling. They are the perfect nibble.

The classics topped with onion, bamboo, slices of tender meat and most importantly and interesting surprise of a good textured and perfectly cooked noodles- we hardly get good noodle texture without a gentle reminder to the chef, that some of us in Malaysia do like the real deal of springy from ramen noodles. While there are some with thicker and more flavourful broth, the rest of the bowls of the order didn’t quite make it to please or pass the musters for value and depth of flavour. The rest on the table seemed to unhappy with the rest of the ramen choices. All Assari Sio Ramen (RM23) , Tonkotsu ramen (RM 25) and Yaki- Miso Ramen( RM 25 ) were either lightly seasoned or

Harvest Ground @ Sunway Geo


Eggettes, otherwise also known as the egg waffle has always been an iconic Hong Kong street snack. One that is almost a quintessential and while it has always been classic and nostalgic, it has been really common in the recent years for innovative modern twists. Harvest Ground seemed to nailed their rendition with some of the most local falvours. I was instantly drawn to Jack the Baba HK Eggettes (RM 20) because of that interesting combo of jackfruit and ice cream. The generous scoop of fresh coconut ice cream was pretty amazing along the shredded jackfruit. Plus the choice of salted gula Melaka caramel sauce, was quite a fascinating match all together to the otherwise boring eggettes that could really use a little more of that crispy.

The egg waffle isn’t the only innovative modern twist and despite being unsure of the core selling point, everything else is pretty innovative. Gua bao here folds a tender strip of fried chicken and even though their menu did not exactly make things easy when it comes to decision making, I was told the Taiwanese Ru Rou Fan (braised pork belly over rice) was good.

Fries for snacking didn’t quite leave a very impressive impression but these hits and misses can always be fixed with a better standard operating procedure.

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion

Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion


Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion


The decor might be simple and even maybe borderline close to sloppy, but comfort dining is rest assured. Don’t expect contemporary and bold fusion but do prep yourself for some authentic Thai fire and superb cooking including stalwarts like tomyam and padthai. They have always been one of the biggest native crowd pullers and quite rightly so; the establishment imports Thai products and occasionally sells some really interesting street snack that is much loved by the Thai native community on top of the delicious cooking.


1.Frame Thai @ Happy Mansion


The menu is pared down to classics of Thai authentic flavours, all well prepared in both set and ala carte dishes for communal eating. Prices weren’t cheap thou but solo dinning is easy with their set serving that comes with rice and accompanied with a little bit of vegetables. I am happy it isn’t white rice (sometimes I like bluffing myself to some extent, haha. Don’t judge me). Fried Basil Leave with Pork (RM 10), Pork Leg with Rice (RM 10), as well as Noodle in Thickened Soup (RM 7) not only looks terrific but decently portioned as well. Add on the BBQ stuff. Grilled Pork Neck (RM 4) was delicious tender and juicy and best to go with some beer.

Fish is available at a standard pricing of plus-minus RM 40 and it’s highly doubted that it was a popular choice. They are not spotted on any tables amidst the crowded hungry customers. Soups and Tomyam made appearance at few tables so I tried and while comforting, it was but at the same time really warming you up when especially seated in the low ceiling and badly ventilated shoplot. Prepare boxes of quality tissue paper.

Pim’s & the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara

Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria Damansara


Talk about a pure satisfaction of tomyam and thai fare: Pim’s &the Rama at Aman Suria must be the one that comes into mind when it comes to mixes tongue-basting Thai soup in a Korean hot pot lookalike serving. Unlike conventional Thai restaurants, their first operating outlet in Klang was already renewed in such that the interior of the place catching on to trendy designs. This second outlet has wowed neighbourhood patrons with both it’s ingenuity, authenticity (think Thai staple with Chang Beers) and a good value of money. Oh did I mentioned the live acoustic music on Fridays and Saturdays?


As is the case in many of Klang Valley’s most authentic Thai restaurants, the cooking here is largely from the region of northern Thailand – including salad, accompanied by anything of pork. The food menu features plenty of well-known Thai dishes, with Green Curry Chicken (RM 28) alongside Thai Papaya Salad (RM 18), Pad Thai Noodles Prawn (RM 16.50) and juicy Pork dishes- Thai Grilled Pork Neck (RM 19), BBQ Pork Sticks – 3pcs (RM 12), Spicy Hot-Basil Leaf Minced Pork Rice with Fried Egg (RM 14.90) and Thai Pork Leg on Rice (RM 15.90).

You’ll also find a collection of southern Thai dishes such Thai Otah Otah Seafood (RM 25.50). Fish dishes are available as well. Fresh Siakiap Seamed with Chili & Lime Soup (RM 66) and Fresh Boneless Deepfried Siakiap Fish with Thai Sweet & Sour Sauce (RM 68). All very lovely to go with white rice.

The menu carries a long list of Thai dishes but something else is brimming with innovative confidence. Unashamedly fusing hotpot and Thai with the likes of fresh seafood and thick tomyam soup and lining the surface of the pot with crayfish, prawns, scallops, squids, mussels and some mushroom; and then topped with boiled egg with that runny and custardy yolk, Pim’s Super Seafood Tom Yum Pot (RM 88) reminds me of the Korean army hot pot. And, this one is sensational with icy cold beer.

If not this huge seafood tomyum pot? Then go for the popular pink soup. Yen Ta Fo (RM 39) represent hot pot with fishballs and tofu pieces and is another dish perfect for anyone who loves hot pot.

Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)


For a place with such good reputation for its food and cocktails, and entering celebrating its second anniversary, the Locker and Loft is refreshingly cosy: classy furniture, neat tableware, and a handsome bar counter lined with whiskies, ales, beers, cocktails and a good list of wine varietal. It has a hidden entrance but upon entering is a calm and cool place to eat and drink. Especially with their newest menu specially crafted for the cleaner taste profile. I was privileged to sample some of their newest cocktails and boy I love them less sweet and more refreshing than ever! That we are looking at bubbly remix of carbonated fresh coconut water with real coconut and the mild sweetness from the aromatic pandan leave especially when it gets close to your nose whilst bring it close to sip. K Rock! (RM 25)maybe lower and calorie but that really isn’t a bad thing. Because that means some more calorie quota for the CNY 2018 special- Babi Lu Mary (RM 40). One that has bakwa infused tequila, and some bold addition of with tomato juice, lemon juice, brown sugar, Lea & Perrins, Tobasco, salt, pepper & olive brine. Not forgetting the Blueberry milkshakes (RM 34)and The King (RM 38). The first really got me frenzy and while the later might be a crowd pleaser, durian really isn’t my thing. But dear durian fans, you are going to be drinking a controversial natural durian cocktail with vodka, Baileys, hazelnut liqueur, vanilla ice cream, almond syrup and cinnamon powder. (At this point, I realised that I’ve subconsciously held my breath as I described it.)


Of course there are some that I really enjoyed- all Tea Garden, LC 1 (RM 32) and Kopi Ice (RM 35) were all super easy to drink. I’ve always dislike eggwhite in cocktail but I do not dislike this, probably because of the floral hints from lavender. Despite looking ordinary, I am putting LC1 and Kopi ice as a strong contender for one of the tastiest cocktail for the night.

Their focus is on making both diners and drinkers feel happy and comfortable. Apart from their list of new cocktails, there’s new shot glasses made of ice and clients can now order the cocktail- catering service for a pop-up bar at private occasions. This one is real intriguing. But moving to the new food menu, it is a symphony of fantastic flavours we are all somewhat familiar with.


From delicious bites like Malacca Style Roti (RM 16), Salted Egg Prawn Cocktail (RM 23), and Varuval Quesadilla with Pineapple Chutney (RM 23), to succulent meat dishes like the Hainanese Chilli Chicken Wings (RM 25) and Peanut sauce Pork ribs (RM 26), you’ll never suffer regular pub grubs to accompany your alcohol. Malacca style roti really reminded me of Melaka roti john and that really is something I fancy. That quesadilla is one innovative complement to the pineapple chutney.

Kitchen also apparently excel in seafood preparations. Seabass Fish Fingers (RM 21) cooked with precision, came crunchy on the outside and breaded nicely without falling apart.


12.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)


Mains are hearty, as well as glorious when you get pasta loaded with big flakes of sardine as well one with so big cuts of bacon bits. I like both the Chili Padi Sardine Bacon Pasta (RM27) and Pasta Masak Lemak with Bacon Bits (RM26) especially when the pasta are cooked perfect to my liking- al dente that is.

14.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)


It’s a pleasure to pair and enjoy alcohol with quirky selection of food because the food at Locker and Loft is clearly presented by someone who cares about flavour. Not every dish was a knockout but where there were failings it was down to being over generous rather than unskilled; sardine and bacon maybe a little too much in ratio to the pasta resulting a slight overpowering of salty but most of the menu offers satisfying, moreish, somewhat complex dishes, the kind you always want from dining experience and so rarely get. Yup, I tried the Mini sliders consisting of 3 different patties and I enjoyed it very much.


15.Lockers and loft at Damansara Kim (2018 New menu)


Cempedak Goreng with Vanilla Ice Cream (RM16) wasn’t the greatest, but it’s something I would order again on my next visit. And yes, revisiting is most likely happening. I love cempedak still wrapping the seed and they are serving this seedless. But hey, it’s about how much you love fried cempedak and how this one is so perfectly pairing with the scoop of ice cream it combines to become a dessert that is absolutely delicious.

The Locker and Loft isn’t a place where tables brushed and every detail seen to by the serving crew but it is super chill place eat, drink and have plenty of fun enjoying everything they have to offer. Among its upcoming events are KL Rum Fiesta, GT Week, KL Amateur Bartender Challenge, The Shooter Week, Do The Classics and Sangria Sessions. There are also other regularly-scheduled events like Shake N Take (make your own cocktails every Thursday), BBQ Sunday, Sake Sundays and Dames Night. So make sure to follow their updates on their page. There is so much fun factor coming from the folks of this establishment.
