People of Kheng Chiew (POKC) in Uptown has this gorgeous smooth tautoofah cheese cake with ginger infused gula melaka syrup that you can justify beating the horrendous jam and parking for!
The roti babi is another signature dish I would recommend to order while you are there! It was a pity I didn't get to go a second time while I was back home because of the lack of weekends that would be wiser to head to Uptown for about anything! As always, go with a friend or two so that you can order more to share ;)
While I was back in KL, Bakar was just opened and we hurriedly booked a dinner slot to celebrate our carebear's birthday! Gone are the days of Chilis and TGIF now that we all 25 and can drive further to wine and dine.
Bakar is relatively smaller in space than I assumed it would be and they have 2 slots for dinner time which makes it a little harder to chat the night away as our space was only ours for 2 hours but knowing that Hit and Mrs bar is only next door... we left the chattering for later (with cocktails).
The chicken is recommended (we ordered twice!), the lamb was a little tough and the fries so-so but their squid looks the prettiest and my seafood friends enjoyed it!
We had 5 cocktails to go around and this onde-onde cocktail rendition was indeed impressive- toasted coconut, pandan infused in rum, coconut liqueur, gula melaka and egg yolk! A fun pick if you are feeling nostalgic or have a weak spot for onde-onde, which I have been craving
lately all the time.
Oh! how do you like my latest tailored cheongsam jumpsuit? Is pretty comfortable wearing a jumpsuit, until you get to the washroom that is...
Sorry for the hiatus, I am and have been on an emotional roller coaster ride with the ever changing wave of surprises.
A bright and my preferred one was when John woke me up and said, we head off tonight or early tomorrow for a vacation! It was so last minute but boy was it exciting looking back at how we spent the entire afternoon booking our flight, checking the weather and securing an accommodation (which turned out ggggreat) and continued till bed time packing our luggage and polishing up our itinerary.
The next was being back to reality after some hundred hours of bliss and trying to finish off the new company's logo to being in a state of shock when I read about a passing of a friend from church who met an accident while he was on the way to pick up his friend to church that morning.... ㅠㅠ.
Next are house matters which I probably shouldn't complain about openly but seriously... sigh, what selfish person am I? :(
There are also the big probability that I may not have my desired renovation works done because of funds and also the discouragement of some of my on going projects that have not yet bear fruit which poses the question- is this all a waste of time?

eating in korea, itaewon, jonny dumpling, solely on restaurant korea 7/07/2015 11:17:00 PM
When I was in Malaysia I will be craving for Korean food (day in and out) and i'll be driving an hour to Ampang's K-mart, stock up and drive back to make mandu, kimbabs, tteokbokki, the works...
Now, I'm constantly on the lookout for good places for Thai/Chinese/Western food...hardly any Korean food cravings... -_-'' and the distance I'm willing to go to eat is so out of the way silly sometimes.
Nonetheless, if you ever find yourself in my situation and on the streets of Itaewon having legit cravings for pan fried dumplings with spicy tofu rice...find Jonny Dumpling!
I brought John there and he agrees that it is GOOD- because you should know that the Chinese food here can sometimes taste exactly like Korean food, which only makes a craving worst.
Those are the top 3 dishes you should order.
1. Pan fried dumplings.
2. Spicy tofu rice.
3. Mussels with dumpling soup.
You can thank me later. ;)
There are 2 outlets in Itaewon alone, so whichever nearest to you will be getting your money and belly filled.
Directions: Itaewon Station (Line 6, Exit 2 and Exit 4) - both the locations can be found here.
