kl: johnny rockets

i don't know how to begin with this post. but there's only one thing lingering in my head right now about johnny rockets...waste of calories!

kl: the daily grind

the daily grind is probably the first gourmet burger joint in kl, but it's leaning towards the higher end of the market so their prices are steeper compared to the more popular ones.  logically, we should have tried the regular burger but we couldn't resist the fancier ones.

kl: red lobster

this is one of the chains i wanted to try during my last us vacay but failed to do so. i was so happy they opened up in kl. i was actually just in for the free cheddar bay biscuits which are good but a bit salty. everything was mediocre especially the almost overcooked pasta.

kl: kgb burgers

killer gourmet burgers is one of the forerunners during the burger boom. i like the fact that they have two ways in cooking their burgers (grilled or crust seared) and they have a variety of flavors for their fries. plus it's more accessible for me since they have a branch at my favorite mall.

kl: acme south

sooo happy a resto opened up that serves southern food. acme south didn't disappoint. the flavors were spot on.

mikey's original new york pizza

kl: majestic hotel buffet

this was one of those random moments when we wanted to eat in a hotel buffet and i just pretty much looked for new hotels to try and voila i found the majestic hotel.

very few photos, i was actually watching my food intake. the food is good and the price is affordable as well. i reckon though that the dinner buffet has more selection especially when it comes to seafood which was something we wanted. but still a good try.

brunch kl: plan b

plan b is not just a brunch place, it's good for casual meals. they have great sandwiches and unique pastas. overall, food is good and consistent, plus it's also accessible.

my favorite drink - lemongrass and ginger tea

french toast - something i actually won't recommend.

corned beef and hash - this is not what i expected. it is fresh/homemade corned beef cut into cubes and the hash is also not the typical grated potatoes but were also cubed. it was tasty and really filling.

brunch kl: nutmeg

second brunch spot is nutmeg.

big breakfast? i'm not sure if this was called nutmeg's big breakfast, but this is normally a big breakfast in any brunch place in kl. bread, mushrooms, roasted tomatoes, meats (cured beef and sausage), eggs (your choice, mine is poached me thinks with some hollandaise) and fried mac and cheese which is something unique to nutmeg.

waffles - nothing extraordinary

eton mess - because my friends miss the uk (lol)

among the famous brunch spots i like nutmeg the most, though i frequent antipodean more because of it's accessibility.

brunch kl: antipodean

gaaaah...i've been so bad in posting my foodie adventures. let me start with my brunch series.  brunch is a thing in kl, i think they got it from the aussies. i'm starting with antipodean cafe, which probably is the most famous brunch spot in kl.

their signature flat white, request it to be really hot!

big breakfast - slice of toast, homemade has brown, mushrooms, scrambled eggs and sausage (you can choose between 3 types of sausage or bacon me thinks).

antipodean is affordable, good value for money and it has several branches now so it is quite accessible.
