Midsummer Night Feast & Celebrity Chef John Burton Race

The Poster

I laughed when I read some of the comments. One was from Eric from UK, “What have you been eating lately, do post them up don’t keep them to yourself”.

Eric had flew in from UK recently and had a short intensive baking class with Sunny Yaw and while spending those days at our baking studio, Eric had the pleasure to savour a range of local food were bought for lunches and we made a survey on which was better and worst! :) It was a real discovery when comparing with individul taste.

The Midsummer Night Feast at Starhill Gallery, Kuala Lumpur had graced with great pleasure and I was there to experience it. The event had become an annual event and this was the third year that continues to excite the culinary scene with world class dining experiences under the leadership of YTL Corportae Executive Chef Kevin Cape together with a host of international celebrity chefs flown in specially to Kuala Lumour for the celebration.

Italian Restaurant Johor Bahru Best – IL GIARDINO

IL GIARDINO 1

Having to be in the city of Johor Bahru and tried the local food, I decided to put my taste buds on western food, this time I visited a local Italian restaurant called Il Giardino which was very interesting, simple and do have the Italian feel, great atmosphere.

We ordered Aglio Olio (with beef ham and squid) and Seafood Carbonara. Both were deliciously done to my expectation and we meet the owner too, Ms Kentt as she saw us kept snapping photos of our food. Later we were invited back for a food tasting that night by the owner herself.

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.
