This Gorgeous Hotel Will Make You Wanna Go On A Romantic Retreat Right Now

As cliché as candlelight dinners and beds topped with animal-shaped towels can be (don’t forget the liberal sprinkles of rose petals), sometimes, that's just the kind of weekend you need to relax and recharge!

Price Range: Reasonable! Mains range from RM 8.90 to RM 32.90

The first time we had a chance to try Bites Café’s wholesome menu, we thought it couldn’t get any better than that.

We thought wrong, obviously.

Pak Weil Akok Salor @ Salor, Kota Bharu

Price Range: Budget
Cuisine: Akok

A fan of this ooey, gooey Kelantanese delicacy? You’d need to make a stop at this unassuming little shack for some of the best akoks in town!

Nasi Ulam Cikgu @ Kampung Kraftangan, Kota Bharu

Price Range: Budget
Cuisine: Nasi campur, Kelantanese style

If lunch doesn’t count to you if rice is not involved, then you’d appreciate this fuss-free eatery famed for rice with ulam and assorted lauk (like the legendary giant keli!)

Kopitiam Kita @ Jalan Pengkalan Chepa, Kota Bharu

Price Range: Budget
Cuisine: Kopitiam fare

The best breakfast to kickstart your morning in Kota Bharu ought to be a wholesome meal of Roti Titab and a cuppa smooth, rich Kopi O!

Update: This restaurant has closed permanently =( 

Price: RM127.20 for this 4-pax set (but you can get it at up to 22%off via KindMeal!)
Cuisine: Fusion

A fun dinner idea: having a primary school-themed meal set served in a space decked out to look like a bilik darjah

The evening involved us retrieving cutleries from our Spiderman school bag, and playing lawan pemadam.

Daily Shots Cafe @ Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 1, TTDI

Update: This cafe is no longer in operation =( 

Price Range: Reasonable! Coffee drinks range from RM6 – RM9.50
Cuisine: Coffee and cakes

This little cafe quietly set up camp in the half-a-shoplot we used to buy PS1 games in, and it’s looking very likely that we’ll be just as fond as this cosy hideout as well.

Chocolate Nicecream Recipe

We had a whole lot of bananas in the kitchen today and decided to try creating a chocolate version of our favourite nicecream recipe!

10 August 2015

Under Pressure Vege Soup Recipe

Here’s what we like to do when work ends a little late, and time is not on our side for the fanciest of dinner prep: we chuck whatever we can find in the fridge into the pressure cooker, and hope for the best.

Turkish Café Istanbul @ Jalan Wan Kadir 1, TTDI

Price Range: Mains range from RM15 – RM20  
Cuisine: Turkish  

If you’re like us and have been struggling to find a decent Turkish meal in KL, you’re probably just as relieved when this café first opened its doors in TTDI last October. 

08 August 2015

Mr Pie Man @ Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad 3, TTDI

Price Range: Pie combo meals range from RM9.90 to RM 19.90
Cuisine: Pies

A quick chat with the Pie Man himself told us that the café’s existence is due to the fact that he can’t seem to find a good pie to sink his teeth in upon his return from New Zealand. We’re just glad to have a cosy pie shop so near to home! 

01 August 2015

Sushi Tei @ Tropicana City Mall

Price Range: A full meal here costs an average of RM50 onwards per person 
Cuisine: Japanese  

Nothing's worse than meal time approaching and you're bombarded with the question, "What to eat?" 

This time around, we let our pocket full of Worthy Book vouchers decide where to head to, and we ended up with a pleasant meal at Sushi Tei =)

Oriental Group Set @ Beyond Veggie, 1 Utama

Price: RM94.70 
Cuisine: Asian vegetarian

We’re not usually fans of mock meat, but we gotta hand it to Beyond Veggie... their vegetarian spread totally exceeded our expectations!

Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms Recipe

Our version of throwing caution to the wind is grabbing the Portobellos for our weekly grocery cart instead of the basic button ones. Yes, we live life to the fullest like that. Here’s what we made!

27 July 2015

Tomato Eggplant Salsa Recipe

Say hello to our favourite Monday night staple, which we usually cook in a huge-ish batch and use it in as many ways as we can think of throughout the week! 

We've used it as pasta sauce, we've baked mushrooms with it, we've used it a dip, and we've used it in sandwiches! Whoooooo! Yes, multi-purpose salsa excites us so. 

26 July 2015

Ko Hyang Korean Country Delights @ 1 Utama

Price Range: Mains are RM15ish and above
Cuisine: Korean
Pork Free

The best thing about having Korean food? The colourful-flavourful meal you're treated to!

Roasted Balsamic Brussels Sprouts Recipe

The name itself conjures a special kinda nightmare among kids (and even some full-grown adults). But Brussels sprouts are really not all that intimidating! (No, really!)

Perhaps its bitterness is what puts people off these innocent little bubs, but that can easily be handled by a little balsamic vinegar and some time in the oven.

Minds may change once the sprouts are hot-off-the-oven with their unbelievably delicious caramelized finish! Let's get cookin'!

Roasted Honey Mustard Tofu Recipe

This mini-recipe is perfect for when you’re rushing to get dishes out onto the dinner table! These roasted tofu slices are incredibly yummy, and takes barely any effort – all you need to do is slather the tofu in a simple marinade, and let the oven take up the rest of the cooking!
