    Chatime: Famous Bubble Tea Brand Popular in Malaysia Too!

    by machomikemd Written Jul 1, 2014

    Having Lot of Chatime Outlets in Malaysia, Particularly in Kuala Lumpur and the Klang Valley Areas of Petaling Jaya, Subang Jaya, Cyber Jaya, Putra Jaya, etc. Makes me wonder as Malaysia is a tea producing (primarily in the Cameron Highlands) and tea drinking counrty with different kinds of hot and cold teas (like teh tahrik, Teh C Peng) around the country. And It was a such a surprise that a Taiwanese Global Bubble Tea Brand is so popular in Malaysia that it accounts for almost half of it's overseas revenues. I am talking about the Famous Taiwanese Bubble Tea Brand, CHATIME.

    It currently has more than 100 stores around Malaysia and even has 40 branches here at the Greater Klang Valley and Kuala Lumpur Areas.

    the one we went was at the Oasis Boulevard, near the Sunway Pyramid Hotel.

    Opens: 10:00 am to 11:00 pm monday to thursday
    10:00 am ti 12:00 am friday to sunday

    according to wikipedia:

    Henry Wang Yao-Hui founded Chatime in 2005 in Hsinchu, Taiwan, under the parent company, La Kaffa Coffee.[4] He modernised traditional tea making culture by producing tea machines that could make quality fresh teas that were consistent, using a variety of flavors, fruits and toppings, in order to stand out from the many competitors in the market.[4] The company has its own tea plantation in Nantou, Taiwan

    Favorite Dish: they have and almost endless array of teas (green, black, oolong, red, rice tea, etc), fruit teas and more with lots of different toppings (grass jelly, pearl, nata de coco, coconut jellt, etc.) you can choose from (which they call Varieteas!).

    Prices Range from RM 6 to 10, depending on the type of tea and type of toppings you want (you can also add extra toppings if you want).

    Starbucks: No. 1 Coffee Chain in the World!

    by machomikemd Updated Jul 1, 2014

    Everyone Knows Starbucks! so I don't need an introduction.

    The Rivals of Starbucks in Malaysia are the international and local coffee chains such as Gloria Jeans Coffee, Dome', Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, San Francisco Coffee, Kopi Tiam, Old Town White Coffee, etc. But it still has the most number of locations in Malaysia numbering over 150 stores and about 30 stores in Kuala Lumpur Area and 25 stores in the Klang Valley Area.

    they also offer free wifi to guests and most starbucks branches are open from 7:00 am to 12:00 am everyday.

    Favorite Dish: everyone knows about different starbucks blends and my favorite is the Asian Dolce Latte of which a Venti Size cost RM 15 and my second favorite is Iced Latte Venti Size at RM 13 an Order.

    Kentucky Fried Chicken: Colonel Chicken everywhere!

    by machomikemd Updated Jun 30, 2014

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    hey, since malaysia is a muslim majority state, pork is not allowed except for other religious groups hence chicken restaurants are very popular here and the international chain of Kentucky Fried Chicken is no exception. Like in other areas, they add local flavor to their popular meals like the lemak chicken so the Kentucky Fried Chicken is especially popular here in Malaysia. They are many locations of KFC in and around the Kuala Lumpur area and some strores at open 24 hours.

    Favorite Dish: well the kentucky fried chicken off course and a combo meal here will cost RM 12. a single meals with colonel burger and fries or wedges will cost about RM 7, the choices are endless and for the hungry people like me on a long trip to singapore, this is well worth it.

    order menu meal more meals yummy

    Sao Nam, Bukit Bintang, Kuala Lumpur: Favourite Restaurant in KL

    by aussirose Updated Jun 24, 2014

    Sao Nam Vietnamese Restaurant is so far our favourite Restaurant in Kuala Lumpur - well apart from the wonderful SWine Restaurant in the suburbs of Kuala Lumpur.

    Located just in the next street from the famous street food street, Jaloa Alor in Bukit Bintang and just up the road from the Anggun Hotel, Sao Nam Restaurant is quaint, has calm ambience and the food not only looks good.... but tastes awesome!

    We met the owner who had quite a few medals and plate trophies for winning restaurant of the year etc on display. He told us that he spent a couple of years in Perth at one of our best 5 star restaurants, Frasers at Kings Park. That really impressed us and so his food had some stiff competition to live up to. But we are happy to say that we were really impressed. So much so that we came back again a couple of days later for another great foodie experience.

    I totally recommend this restaurant!

  • Ril's Bangsar: Awarded best steak restaurant by Time Out KL

    by AmandaRils Written Apr 8, 2014

    They source the best, most flavourful meat they can find, choose the juiciest and most tender cuts and cook them the best way they know how. Ril’s Steaks are seared at intensely high heat to produce the ultimate flavour, then finished in the oven for the perfect ‘doneness’ before being allowed to rest for a good while to allow the flavour to develop. Simple, succulent and ultimately satisfying.

    Up a flight of stairs, behind a velvet curtain, discover a different world - a world of secrecy, sex and sophistication. Alluring, inviting and intoxicating - Ril's Bar is a sleek 1920s speakeasy filled with secret alcoves, unique details and hidden surprises. During the week it is a low-lit haven from the daily whirl - sit back and have a cigar, a cocktail, a chat with friends - let them lure you back in time and take your cares away. At weekends, the bar transforms into one of the city's most popular venues with live music, electro swing DJs, special guests, world class cocktails and a uniquely cool, buzzy vibe.

    Attention to detail is paramount, and quality comes first.

    Old China Cafe: Return Visit

    by IreneMcKay Updated Apr 5, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Last visit to KL we came here for a snack and a drink and loved the decor. This time we returned for dinner. Service was very friendly and the decor as charming as ever. We shared a starter of top hats which you assemble yourself. This was very good and I would recommend it. We then had a chicken dish and a pork dish. They both tasted delicious though the pork dish contained a lot of fat which I did not like. As always the beer was top notch and ice cold.

    Dinner for two, Old China Cafe.

    One Restaurant: One Restaurant

    by Cathy&Gary Written Mar 9, 2014

    The One Restaurant is a very cute and quaint place at 110 Jalan Pudu, not far from the Swiss Garden Hotel. We walked past it on our way to Chinatown and decided to call in on the way back to our hotel.

    There is outdoor and indoor seating with beautiful lush green pot plants hanging everywhere. Inside is full of bits and pieces such as wood carvings of cats, masks, old lanterns, framed pictures of old car etc.

    Nothing is in any order; it seems like if there is a space then put something there. The end result is something very different and interesting to explore.

    The snacks and drinks we ordered were nice, the bill was MR51 and it is definitely worth stopping by here for a look around inside this very quirky restaurant.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Healy Mac’s is a nice Irish Bar and Restaurant that is also very popular with locals and expats, it fills up very quickly at night which says a lot about its good food and atmosphere. All sports are shown live, there is a nightly band and happy hour runs all day. Another bonus is the comfortable chairs and there is also outside seating with television screens and awnings to protect you from the rain.

    I ordered the 3 course special Roast Beef dinner which was Potato and Bacon soup, then Rib eye roast with Yorkshire pudding, roast and mash potatoes, carrots, horseradish sauce and gravy, followed by Swabian apple pie that also came with cream and ice cream. The price was RM69++ and everything was delicious. I would definitely order this again.

    Service was quick and the staff are friendly and very helpful. We really enjoyed Healy Mac’s at 38 Changcat Butik Bintang and will be back.

    Malone’s Irish Bar and restaurant has a few locations at various shopping centers in Kuala Lumpur. We went to the one at Pavilion shopping center quite a few times. It is a good spot for a drink and a break from shopping or to leave husbands while you go back inside Pavilion.

    Prices are pretty reasonable and happy hour goes for 6 hours from 2pm. Their breakfast is very nice and the all day breakfast starts from Mr8.90++

    Malone’s at Pavilion shopping center are on Level 3, outside near the escalators.

    Sai Woo Restaurant - Jalan Alor: Sai Woo Restaurant - Jalan Alor

    by Cathy&Gary Written Mar 9, 2014

    Sai Woo Restaurant is about halfway down Jalan Alor and one of the bigger and busiest restaurants along the food street. They have an extensive menu and most serves come in small, medium or large.

    We thought the small serves might be entrée size so ordered 5 small dishes which was far too much food as the serves are quite large. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially their signature chicken dish, it was mouth watering.

    Service is very quick, it is like organized chaos.

    Our total bill here with beers and fruit shakes was MR99.

    The only annoying part is the amount of sellers and rip off merchants that approach you while eating, we had around 20 come up to us, would be nice if the owners tried to stop this.

    Limoncello Bistro: Limoncello Bistro

    by Cathy&Gary Written Mar 9, 2014

    Limoncello is an alfresco dining spot in a lovely setting at Suria KLCC. It is the perfect place to have a break from shopping and people watch while overlooking the pretty views of the lake.

    Above Limoncello you will find Svago which is their more up market sister restaurant. We decided to have lunch here and just ordered a few small snacks.

    The mini Italian hamburgers were ok, nothing special but the bruschetta with chicken, mushrooms and cheese was delicious.

    But the icing on the cake was the bruschetta with Scottish salmon, capers and raw onion washed down with a guava juice. Perfect!
