Tabe Tomo, Plaza Batai

Yakitori is clearly the main feature of Tabe Tomo in Plaza Batai, Damansara Heights – Japanese style skewers, grilled over charcoal fire till juicy perfection. The menu is modern and also offers other non-yakitori items, like chicken stew, croquette and mentai udon. Tabe Tomo (eating buddies in Japanese)...

Restoran Jen Jen, Ipoh

Hor fun with shredded chicken is an Ipoh specialty, where you get the silkiest rice noodles in a broth that is sweetened with prawns and in some places, a bit of flavour additive. Restoran Jen Jen in Ipoh is said to be a favourite among locals, so Jien and I gave it a shot. It’s [] The post...

Bangsar Babe’s 10th Anniversary Giveaway

In year 2011, Jien and I launched the Bangsar Babe Giveaway to celebrate 4 years of blogging. The prizes include hotel and dining vouchers and it was a successful kick-off – and the following year, we launched possibly the largest blog giveaway where more than RM25,000 worth of prizes were given out to...

10 Years On

It’s been close to 10 years ago since I started this blog and looking back, the Bangsar Babe brand has come a long way. Or at least it seems so to me. What initially began as a food and travel diary is now a trademarked brand with endorsements and collaborations with other lifestyle brands. Many []...

Ruk Mookata, Puchong

All-You-Can-Eat deals below RM50 is sometimes too good to be true – I recently tried a deal as such at Ruk Mookata in Puchong with a group of friends. Ruk Mookata serves Thai-style BBQ and steamboat using a charcoal pit, which is said to give the meats more flavour. Getting to Puchong on a weeknight...

Yu Noodle Cuisine

I first heard about Yu Noodle Cuisine a couple of months back, from a reader who noticed my frequent visits to another popular noodle house. Based on the photos of Yu Noodle Cuisine online, it’s easy for one to associate Yu Noodle with another popular noodle house as they both serve similar things –...

Chicken Up, Subang Jaya

Chicken Up in Subang Jaya has been making waves on social media, so frequent that Jien and I got curious and thus we paid them a visit. Their marketing initiatives have been aggressive – involving bloggers, influencers and magazines for coverage. And most of them spoke good things about the food,...

Vietnam Jie, Cheras

There are a few things I would go the distance for and beef noodles are one of them. Whether it’s the Chinese style herbal broth or Vietnamese Pho Bo with amber-tinged broth, I’m game. I came to know about Vietnam Jie in Cheras from a good friend, who claimed the iced Vietnamese coffee was as []...

A self reflection

Around the same time two years ago, I was on my desk typing my resignation letter for the umpteenth time. But that time around, I somehow found the courage to send it to print and sealed it in an envelope before placing a copy each of that resignation on my HR’s desk and subsequently, my [] The...

Ekkamai at Batai, Damansara Heights

I’ve walked past Ekkamai along the shops at Jalan Batai several times but it wasn’t until last week that I tried it for the first time with my family. We would usually go to Busaba when we crave Thai food, but opted for Ekkamai for a change. I was told they get quite packed during [] The post...

Nam Heong, Pavilion Elite

Nam Heong in Ipoh is one of the pit-stops I’d make when I’m in the city as they offer a range of Ipoh favourites like the egg tarts, which I enjoy. When I heard of their venture into Klang Valley, a part of me felt sceptical – would the food be the same? My recent [] The post Nam Heong,...

Bangsar Babe takes a break

It’s been almost a week since I last updated this blog, partly because work has been all-consuming and I was really focusing on client projects from the agency end. I also took a short break from blogging because Jien whisked me away to Lombok for a short retreat to celebrate my birthday. The year has...

The Crusty Nest, SS15 Subang Jaya

Good pies are hard to come by and I’ve been disappointed with a number of specialty pie shops in Klang Valley until Jien took me to The Crusty Nest in SS15 Subang Jaya. He ate one of their pies during a meeting prior that week and thought it was good. Seeing how I’m also on [] The post The Crusty...

Bangsar Babe in U.S.

Am documenting my trip to the US which is way overdue to a point I’m starting to forget! Jien and I have always wanted to visit the States and since my dad wanted to celebrate CNY in London, we figured it was a good time to also explore the US, by using London as a [] The post Bangsar Babe in U.S.

Yellow Apron, Section 13 Petaling Jaya

Yellow Apron in Section 13 Petaling Jaya hits a couple of right notes with Jien and I – him, more than myself as he’s a bigger fan of burgers and modern cuisine. The team at Yellow Apron combines the best of east and west in a contemporary space, which we both found enjoyable. Our good [] The...

Body Soul at Club Med Bintan

Travel writer: Melissa Foo A year ago, I came to know about Club Med Bintan when one of my teenage idols, Denise Keller (think Channel V days) shared her snapshots of the resort on Instagram. Impressed with what I saw, Club Med became one of my imaginary holiday choices whenever I felt the itch to []...

Long Chim, Singapore

“Best Thai food in Singapore”, so Long Chim claims. I had the pleasure of dining at this internationally acclaimed Thai restaurant in Marina Bay Sands when I was in the city two months back. Long Chim is said to be Singapore’s finest Thai restaurants and judging from the dinner crowd that night, I...

Restoran Hua Mui, Johor Bahru

Hui Mui in Johor Bahru oozes an old school charm amidst the row of new cafés along Jalan Dhoby and Jalan Trus. Established since 1946, the place is said to serve the original Hainanese chicken chop in JB. We initially wanted to pop by It Roo Café just up the road but it wasn’t open [] The post...

Pampas Reserve, Suasana Bukit Ceylon

I’ve always pegged Pampas Reserve as a happy hour joint – the drinks are reasonable and it’s located right smack in the middle of Kuala Lumpur. Suasana Bukit Ceylon to be exact. What I didn’t realise was they also serve steak, which I pleasantly discovered last week when Jien took me there for our...

Uncle Seng Restaurant, SS15 Subang Jaya

I like to believe there are three types of noodle eaters out there – the kon loh (dry style) eater, soup noodles eater and the soup drinker. I fall under the soup drinker category and would always finish the soup/broth before my noodles. Dry style noodles aren’t quite my thing as I love it when...
