Nasi Kukus & Nasi Kerabu is highly recommended at this hipster Malay food restaurant. The fried chicken is always juicy, tender and flavourful! Oh yeah, don't forget to mix all the sambal and curry sauce together for the best taste. It's addictive, and you have been warned :)
Back to the favourite dessert place.
Love the peaceful ambiance and great plated dessert that made from scratch using all natural ingredients.
Red wine poached pear with chrysanthemum ice cream is so elegant yet delicious. With the spices that added in the poaching liquid, it add extra warm flavor to the dessert. Pairing with chrysanthemum ice cream to clear the palate and the granola do add some crunch to it.
Mango lychee ice cream slice with fruit salsa. A very refreshing dessert that make your palate dancing. Especially love the mango pineapple salsa with mint that add another layer of freshness to the dessert, best to enjoy with Malaysia weather.
Last but not least Belgium hot chocolate with rose, do give a try if you love rose drink. This will not let you down.
Away from the hustle-bustle of TTDI in an alcove above the Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi shoplots, this fine dessert parlour is a haven for those seeking sweet solace in the night. The friendly service and thoughtful recipes also render it a top spot for quality time with the girls, or for sweets with your date after dinner. With plated desserts on the rise, innovation is king and Foo Foo knows it. Chef Foo makes it a mission to revamp the menu periodically, and in the past year, 10 volumes have already made their mark. Winsome desserts that once adorned the menu like the red wine-poached pear with chrysanthemum ice cream and the irresistible crispy profiteroles with salted caramel ice cream have established their prowess for creative desserts done right. You will notice that the menu lacks visuals — the founders believe that when they get the opportunity to explain the dessert, it builds anticipation and enhances the entire experience. For now, come for the decadent Ginger Date Toffee Pudding with Guinness Stout Ice Cream (RM26) and keep your options open for what you might find on the menu!

The little haven for all things great in the world which is coffee and brunch is done fantastically by the people that brought us the Common Man coffee roasters! This haven is hailed from the land of their merlions and they have seem to have perfected the art of brewing excellent lattes, the mastery of roasting beans to make lovely coffee for us and not to mention adding another feather to their cap would be making scrumptious brunch not matter what the time of the day it is! Great things was buzzing the moment they open their welcoming doors to the public and I have been so eager to try their coffee and their churros.. With pure determination and also additional stomachs came along to tick this brunch place off our list of brunch places to go and so we venture into the TTDI area to try them food and coffee.. Their current menu now comprises from breakfast classics and their new creations to catering lunch & dinner which are rather interesting yet substantial from their description alone.. So we had their Sautéed Kale & egg white scramble (RM29)which is follows the current craze of anything Kale and healthy.. Initially we were rather skeptical about having Kale as it isn't the type of greens we were brought up with but since it's something new and unique and not to forget an excellent choice for those who are on a vegan diet or day; this would be just great! The moment it came to our table, we were in awe with their composed yet beautifully plating it has for a plate of greens consisting mainly Kale, broccoli, sweet peas & asparagus which are actually music to my ears considering I love eating vegetables! The texture of the vegetables are crunchy yet sweet on its own and the Kale was sauteed with just the right amount of balance in terms of oil and seasoning which made it even more enjoyable to eat.. Lets not forget the unique egg white scramble that is topped with shaved Parmesan & lemon zest crumbs! The scramble whites doesn't resemble anything like an egg white and in fact they rather look like fluffy clouds which also in texture was like a cloud itself when we ate it and the lemon zest crumb just brought out the zesty yet salty elements which somehow goes amazingly well with the Kale! It's really a delicious yet mind blowing awesome plate of greens with a twist! This plate would convert any non green or non vegetarian loving people to try it and finish the whole plate itself! It's a must try in common man!
At first glance, the eye-catching murals at Kouzu will immediately have you know that the establishment breathes fun, quirky Japanese vibes. Expect the same from the menu, which displays a flair for contemporary Japas (Japanese tapas). Tasty dishes are aplenty, like the Pan Seared Foie Gras and Tuna (RM28) and a Crispy Unagi Roll (RM22), but our favourite has got to be the Creamy Baked Oyster (RM19 for five). Baked in their shells chock-full of piquant masago (capelin roe), these are incredibly easy to love. Also order the Stone Grilled Sirloin (RM27), painstakingly served on a stone wrapped in foil to retain its moist, juicy texture. From the grill, don't miss out on the fresh, plump Rock Lobster (RM12 per stick) and the Sirloin (RM12 per stick) — we can't get enough of these. The neighbourhood bar is great for both food and drinks, but even better for how affordable it is to have them. Make it your next spot to kick back with friends or talk business with a partner over beers, sakes or whiskies.

Finally a place with good Ipoh Hor Fun in PJ! Chicken was smooth and tender & bean sprout crunchy, just like the ones in Ipoh! If you like prawn wanton as much as I do, good news, they serve it here!
Fairly new eatery in TTDI serving Japanese Tapas and such.
The first thing that caught my eye was the striking manga style mural on the walls.
In frame: Creamy Baked Oysters (RM19). These delicious fresh oysters are baked in their shell with creamy cheesy goodness and topped with masago. This is a must order!
Every time I see an oyster dish, it reminds me of the scene from Mr Bean where he had a nightmare experience with oyster. I am never a fan of oyster. But not anymore! At Kouzu, their oyster is baked in its shell with a creamy cheese-like topping. Use your fork and sort of twirl the contents in the shell, mixing the topping with the oyster flesh together. Then, slurp it down, allowing that silky goodness to glide down your oesophagus. RM19 for 5
The hot stone bowl gives the bottom layer of rice a nice crust while the top layer remains soft. Served with thick cuts of unagi, scallop, some fish eggs and a runny egg. You start off your meal with moist grains and end your meal by scraping off crunchy rice at the bottom of the bowl. So yummy, you won't leave a grain of rice behind. So you do not need to worry of the chinese saying which goes 'if you leave a grain of rice unfinished, your future wife or husband would have pimples on his or her face'. Beautiful future wife, mana u ? RM23
Quirky cafe with a hipster name. A very laid back and modern ambiance. Unique interior decor - odd shaped glass containers on the walls and art works. There's a nice little corner with cushioned seat inside with pillows.
In picture: Ice Chocolate (RM11). Glad that it wasn't sweet but would be better if it had more cocoa.
This week, we decided to wander into TTDI. This place has the best play list ever! Like ever. There aren't many spinach white based pasta, but this place serves it for RM28 and it was a decent portion as well. I wished that the sauce surrounding this delish lasagna was a thick layer of bechamel sauce instead😂. Nevertheless, i was happy with this dish as it wasn't too jelak and i swallowed all of it!😂. Service there is impeccable and the waiters were very thoughtful as well! 8/10 for this place and i will be back!!
