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!

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.

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'!

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!

Nasi Campur Iga Set @ Waroeng Iga, 1 Utama

When the craving for something wholesome with a spicy twist hits (a highly specific craving but a very real craving nonetheless…), this impressive rice set at the much-loved Indonesian eatery ranks high on our priority list.


Not letting its namesake down, Waroeng Iga is a crowd favourite in 1 Utama for their tender, flavourful Indonesian-style beef ribs (iga)!

There may be no chilli in sight, but the heat of this dish comes from the generous amount of chilli powder and cayenne pepper it’s tossed in!

Chequers @ Jalan Aminuddin Baki, TTDI

Price Range: Mains start from RM20
Cuisine: Waffles
Pork-free

Waffles always remind us of back when we were wee little kindergarteners being taken out by our parents for a warm, maple-syrup-doused breakfast on special Saturday mornings.


When we heard there’s a cafe in Taman Tun specializing in savoury and sweet waffles, it’s hardly surprising that we made a beeline for Chequers!
