Cowboy Cookies : No Yeehaw From Me

I don't know why these are called Cowboy Cookies and according to Joy of Baking, these are also known as Ranger Cookies, Kitchen Sink Cookies (what a name!) and Everything Cookies.

Robataya@1 Utama

I spotted Robataya shortly after it opened at 1 Utama and I thought it had a very Japanese look. On one of our dinner dates, my brother and I went over just to check the menu with a view to a future visit.

Overfed - My RM18 Epic Korean Set Lunch

A while back, my brother and I visited Qing He Gu@Damansara Uptown for a nice Korean BBQ lunch. Since then I have not visited but I walked past the restaurant many times while running errands.

Sushi Zanmai - Worth the Queue?

Every time I walk past Sushi Zanmai@1 Utama, there is always a long queue which explains why I never got a chance to dine there. So when Sushi Zanmai came to The Starling, I was quite pleased.

What's So Smart About This Kitchen?

Update : Smart Kitchen has closed down.

A new restaurant opened recently at The Starling. It's called Smart Kitchen and as always, I will go kaypoh kaypoh to check the menu.

Tired of the usual nasi ayam (chicken rice)? Well, to try this Chimichurri Chicken Rice, you need to like/love chimichurri.

Nene Chicken : It's Freaking Hot!

One fine day I walked past and saw this newly opened Nene Chicken@The Starling (CLOSED). Well, you all know I love fried chicken. Korean fried chicken.

Cornflakes Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are the best cookies I have baked so far. They came about when I baked Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and wanted to use up the other half block of butter.

One at Annie 1

That's lunch for one at Annie 1. I always eat solo. I am a loner and I do fine eating or doing anything by myself.

Chimichurri Chicken Avocado Salad

After I made chimichurri, I was very excited to make this Chimichurri Chicken Avocado Salad. I was again in my avocado-addiction-phase (thanks to my sister-in-law) and bought three avocados on a Monday.

Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies

What? Still baking cookies? hee..hee...hee... It looks like the cookie baking that started during the festive season has not stopped. Not yet anyway.

Seng Kee Chicken Rice

One weekend, having no idea where to eat, my partner and I made our way to Seng Kee Chicken Rice@Uptown Damansara. The first time we visited, we were not impressed.

Argentinian Chimichurri

When I first made chimichurri, I was obsessed with this condiment but somewhere along the line, I stopped (not that I tired of it) and somehow I never made it again.

An Outing at Isetan Eat Paradise

It was another day when my brother had to play Grabcar driver to his sister. Hee..hee... And every time that happens, I look forwards to our makan session.

Macaroni Meat Drop Soup

I can't call this "meatball soup" because I did not form the minced meat into balls, but rather I dropped them into the boiling broth in odd shapes (just like how they do in pork noodle soup).

Corn, Jalapeno and Parmesan Fritters

I had some leftover jalapenos in the fridge. They were past their prime, slightly wrinkly and no longer plump and shiny. And then I had an ear of corn, originally meant for a Mexican rice dish which did not come into being.

What To Eat? What To Eat?

There's lots to eat at Damansara Uptown. Just go to The Starling or walk along the shophouses and you will find lots of restaurants, coffeshops and cafes. In spite of this, I sometimes find myself wondering what to eat...

Avocado, Black Bean and Tomato Salad

During our Chinese New Year dinner, my sister-in-law told us that she is crazy over avocado. She has this craving for avocado and wants to eat it all the time.

My Phad Thai Craving

I love rice and I love noodles. Sometimes I crave for noodles and that particular day I was craving for Phad Thai. This is the Thai version of fried koay teow.

Parmesan Potato Chips Cookies

What do you think of crushed potato chips mixed into cookie batter to produce a fusion of potato chips and cookies? Crazy? Not a bad idea actually.

My Favorite French Beans

When I was a kid, one of the vegetables that I disliked was French beans. Generally speaking, I disliked all vegetables. They were all very unappealing to me.

My Prosperity Meal

When I was a student many years ago, I used to love McDonald's Prosperity Burger and Twister Fries. This burger is only available in conjunction with Chinese New Year.
