CLOUDY BAY PINOT NOIR & DUCK TRAIL KUALA LUMPUR

MY DINING with PINOT NOIR 2011

Cloudy Bay Cantaloupe

If you are into the decadent qualities of duck, now you can travel across KL and join a duck and wine trail just like I did. My first stop was at Cantaloupe at 24th floor, Troika. A lovely setting, great deco and awesome surrounded view. That afternoon I was surrounded by two beautiful people Eddie the owner and Jessie from Cloudy Bay Malaysia. It was a lovely not too warm afternoon and I managed to take a walk along the corridors of the premises. I was amazed over their tall ceiling and eye comfort drapes of white cloth to beautify the dinning room.

Luscious Smoked Duck at Four Seas

Dining at the Chinese here in Kuala Lumpur can be so easily sorted but finding a good one can be a slight task. But here I am having a fantastic and wonderful time indulging a fabulous Chinese gourmet with one of Malaysia most famous food writer Tan Bee Hong, photographer Khoo Su Ting and owner of Four Seas Edward Soo. The first dish the Smoke Duck itself did all the introduction. Smells good. Tasted so brilliant. Got me excited Got us all excitedly with such a bundle of joy. Pink. It was pink. I can’t imagine the smoked duck was slow baked over mustard, garlic and honey. It was such a beauty. . . . . soft in texture, intense with flavours. We were left raving for more. Definitely a must have dish if you are planning to dine here.

A Grand Vegetarian Dining

We had been to one branch of Nature’s Vegetarian Restaurant before and were very impressed with the food served. The last time, we were invited by our vegetarian friends from Klang to have a Chinese New Year dim sum dinner with them. That dinner was incredible awesome and even now I still have those fresh flashing memory of the food I had. This time we got the chance to try out their main outlet at Bangsar, flushed along the famous Jalan Telawi.

As we stepped into this restaurant, I was totally impressed with the deco, the place was filled with beautiful and elegant rosewood tables and chairs with beautifully embedded designs crafted with the mother of pearl. I felt I was in a Chinese emperor’s dining room. Not only that, the place was filled with beautiful Chinese sculptures and was place elegantly.

Once we were at our table, we were served with a pot of fragrant Chinese tea, deliciously crunchy seaweed crackers and juicy sliced pineapple topped with satay sauce.

This time we wanted to have something simple, more homely type of dinner and we ordered a few vegetarian dishes. We ordered Hong Kong vegetarian meat “char siew”, curry mutton with bread, sweet & sour meat, steam silky tofu with melon, house special noodle “chew pai mein” and Cantonese style “yeng yong” noodle.

The vegetarian ‘char siew’ was really good, at the right sweetness and just taste like real meat but would prefer a larger cut.

Both noodle dishes were tasty and full of “wok hei”, a thumb up to the chef (Chef Ong)! Look at our feast of the day!

DSCN3148

The sauce of the sweet and sour dish was delicious as the taste was well spot on, the meat was tasty too, good combination. I also adore the crispiness of the soya meat used in this dish.

DSCN3144

The curry mutton was really good and texture of the soya meat was really good and the curry sauce really complimented the dish.

Next the tofu melon dish, the tofu was silky and the melon was well cooked, soft and juicy. The dish was tasty with the delicious light brown sauce.

DSCN3185

By the time when we were about to finish the feast, Mr Alex Ong the owner insisted we try some dim sum and he ordered curry bun, “mut jup char siew bao”, “kum kwai ko” and “fong wor woo kok”. The “char siew bao” was good, the dough was soft, fluffy and the delicious “char siew” sauce just melts in your mouth. The “ woo kok” was so crispy indeed and the fillings was awesomely delicious. The curry bun was good too, very soft bun texture. The “kum kwai ko” was nice filled with lotus paste.

I got to say this is a very inspired vegetarian delight and with a huge range of dishes that will tickle your taste bud. I will definitely be back for more.

Sun Huat Kee Restaurant, Bangsar

Lorong Ara Kiri 2 is a real jewel of Bangsar that yet to be discovered, the food that this street can offer. There are plenty of hawker food waiting to offer you as there about 3 coffeeshop, 1 upmarket ipoh “kopitiam”, indian restaurant and even Domino Pizza is located on the same row. One of the coffeeshop that triggered myself completely was Sun Huat Kee, located next to Domino Pizza. Sun Huat Kee itself specialised with their signature Hakka “Yeong Tofu” during the day.

It was one tuesday nite we visited this place together with citygal from kampungboycitygal, tankiasu from xanga.com, xiu long bao & char siew bao from klpeopleklfood and jackson from jacksonkah. It was a truly food nite out with plenty of food and lots of variety


The “Yeong Tofu” comes in many variety such as fish paste stuffed brinjals, chillies, lady fingers, beancurd skin, tofu, and also deep fried “Sui Kow”. I got to say they tasted really good. The texture of the fish paste is fresh, full flavoured, smooth and tasty. I truly love their fish paste stuffed brinjal, something truly to dream for.


This place also serve a variety of delicious local food such as their famous pork ball noodle. They own and franchise a few pork ball noodle stalls in town such as at ss17, Petaling Jaya and even at the coffeeshop down the corner.


This pork ball noodles come in soup and dry dark sauce. They are also truly a signature noodle. I have them nearly every weekend or twice a week. The other noodle that can be found here is curry mee, ain’t they look gorgeous, creamy and simply delicious.

Not to forget there is also vinegered pork trotters, I would give an A+, ………. lovely, soft and succulent. Very refreshing indeed.

Another dish that they dish out is the hot white pepper pig stomach soup. I find this dish not as exciting as the vinegered pork trotters. I would say average but still blend well with a bowl of rice.

As for drinks they had come up with this drink, “air bandung” with cut dragon fruit. Taste great, really a refreshing drink. The shop also offer the normal drinks that you can get from coffee shops and also got roti bakar.

By night, this shop serve different variation of food, surprisingly savoury poridge and also chicken rice. So yummy and we can’t stop drilling into our bowl of poridge. They offer a variety of them such as pork ribs poridge, salted egg and century egg poridge, frog meat poridge and also the most known at home, the roasted pork poridge. We got to taste all of them and the verdict was fantastic. You can also order pan fried fish to go with your poridge and we had a “Mah Yau” fish and also a small “Pak Chong” fish, taste great.

I would say if you like to find something simple, delicious and got tired with cafe & restaurant food, this will be the right place to be. I would rate this eatery 9/10 and a thumbs up.
