KL Fabulous Food Hunt

Sunday, February 9, 2014

I shall save my Hong Kong trip entries for later and talk about my recent KL trip today.

Honestly, Kuala Lumpur was never in the list of my to-go places.

I've been there twice with my family, and I hated almost everything about it. The service, the traffic, the places we go to (I am not a fan of Petaling St!)and list goes on and on.

But my impromptu trip there last week was unexpectedly one of the best time of my life evuhhhh! I guess all these while I was at the wrong places with the wrong people? (lol sorry Mummy if you're reading this :p) I must really thank my babe Mas for being the awesome travel partner that she is, thank you so making my otherwise solo food-hunt trip, a great one. &for willingly living up to our #yolo motto!

Now I can say that I am in love, yup in love, with KL! How can one not, when everything, from apparels to the food glorious food, is so easy on the pocketbook, right?

Kulcats Barrio

Lot 35, Lorong Rahim Kajai 13. Taman Tun Dr Ismail 60000 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

We took a cab from Berjaya Times Square here. The entire journey took us about thirty minutes and costs us a whooping RM$50. Okay I probably made it sound more expensive than it actually is, honestly I was expecting it would be half the price. It could totally be, if it wasn't for the blur-sotong driver who got confused with the location, on purpose I assume. Thank God for Google Map!

I don't remember the names of these drinks but the second drink is da bomb!!

Absolutely to die for - the Chocolate Pavlova!!! One of the item that was most raved about. The only downside was that the whip cream was a tad too bland, other than that, two thumbs and many many toes up!

Since we still have plenty of cafes to hunt for the day, we decided to share a pizza. That's when we realized everything was served in amazingly huge portions. Even though we were both famished due to the long bus ride, stuffing four slices of pizza was too much for us. Or maybe, it's just me and my small tummeh.

Great + reasonably priced food, checked.  Free wifi, checked. Friendly(& mostly handsome, hehe) staff, checked!

Kulcats is Kool!


Getting out of the area is a problem. Sure there were plenty of empty cabs but none wants to drive us to our next destination, dafug? Luck was on our side when out of the blue a bus appeared from the opposite side of the road so in the moment of desperation we dashed across the busy road and hail the bus.

RM 2.50 for a ride to KL Central!! So next time if you're planning to come here by public transport, take a bus from KL Central. Wished we had known earlier~

Ben's @ Pavillion Mall

Getting here is easy peasy. Alight at either Bukit Bintang or Raja Chulan LRT & you can walk from there.

Quite surprisingly, we were still really full from our previous meal so we just get desserts at Ben's.

Interesting questions written on the cards placed on the table, especially this one.

"Have you been the kind of friend you want as a friend?" Hmmmmm

Ended our night with a karaoke session.

Oh and here's my OOTD!

Johnny Rockets @ The Curve

Don't waste your money travelling all the way to The Curve by cab. Take the LRT, alight at the Kelana Jaya station, use the overhead bridge linked to the second level of the station to get over the bus stop opposite it. There is a free shuttle bus to Ikea, which is just opposite The Curve. Click HERE for more info.

One of the things that made this place stands out than the rest is that all the staff will be dancing every thirty minutes just for you! This includes the kitchen staff and manager as well, so cute right? Best thing is, they're all doing it with a smile and you just can't help to move along. They were dancing to Psy's Gentlemen when we arrived and the lady in white at the bottom right hand corner of this pic was talking to us when suddenly the beat drops and she joined her fellow colleagues.

Look at the hugeeeeeeee portion! We spend almost two hours here because slow eater-me had a hard time finishing her food, lol.

Other than singing and dancing, it is also one of their trademark to make a smiley using the ketchup.

Check out their menu : HERE!

For the awesome staff and experience, I bagi lima bintang! :p

We took a cab from The Curve here, costs us about RM11.

The social freak. That's what she called me, lol.

Such a great place to chill and enjoy your cute little cupcakes. I don't really fancy cupcakes and quite honestly I think this place is overrated. However I do love the ambiance, totally my cuppa tea.


PickNik @ Solaris Utama

From Publika, walk toward Solaris Dutamas' Ju.Ne Japanese restaurant (below The Red Beanbag), then take the escalator down a floor. PickNik will be on your immediate left.

If you don't know, this restaurant is owned by one of the Malaysia's Masterchef celebrity, Chef Nik.

So handsome lor! He's really friendly and humble in real life, so if you're here don't be shy to say hello to him! I was totally over the moon when he liked that picture of mine on Instagram :p


Sushi King @ KLCC

Oh how I loveeeee Japanese food!

Best udon ever, hands down! I was so full to the brim after the meal that every step I took after that made me feel like my belly is going to explode anytime!!

&That pretty much sums up my three days in KL! Once again, this trip wouldn't be as fun if it wasn't for this babe's company. Thank you for always waiting for me to finish up my food patiently (I hope, heh), for tolerating my nonsense and mentel-ness. Thanks for making me fall in love with KL, which I am sure to visit again some time soon. See you on our graduation day, which is in two weeks time! Can't wait!

Singing off this post with a compilation of all the good food that we've been stuffing ourselves with!

Ok someone obviously needs to start her healthy diet plans & getting back on the running tracks very SOON.



  1. omg I guess I found a blog that has everything I want! I'm a Singaporean, planning to visit KL someday. just wondering if there's any train nearby to go to Wondermilk?

    1. Hi babe!

      Well the nearest station would be Kelana Jaya, about 25mins by cab there.

      I strongly suggest you do what I did - take train to Kelana Jaya, hop on the free shuttle bus to The Curve, explore there before you take a cab to Publika. Nearer and cheaper!
