Delicious Restaurant, Bangsar – Inspired by Tapas

“Delicious”, this word is commonly used in my posts as I always talk about good food and great taste. However, for those living in KL will know that Delicious is not only an adjective to describe food, but is also a restaurant that provides great food and ambience to suit the current lifestyle.

delicious_bangsar1

Delicious restaurant, also known as The Delicious Group started business in 1 Utama with just a few items on its menu in 2004. Even though its location was not prominent, news of its delicious wholesome food spread like wildfire through word-of-mouth. The thriving café was packed to the seams with families and young professionals looking for the comfort of homemade food served up.

Evergreen Laurel Hotel Penang – Affordable and Wonderful Buffet

The first thing that is always in my mind when think about Evergreen Laurel Hotel is the exclusive and extensive first class accommodation rather than their delicious and indulging meal at their cafe. My perception of the food at Evergreen Laurel hotel has changed after this visit to its newly renovated Cafe.

The layout and the setting of the cafe has been revamped. Besides the uplifted cafe, the menu of the food has also been improvised.

As you can see from the list of food above, the menu is very vast and unique. We can see that the chef from New Zealand has put a lot of effort into making dining at 59Sixty as outstanding as possible. The ambience here is excellent and also the service is extremely good. There were a few occurrences where the waiter/waitress would personally deliver our food to our table when our hands were full. The only drawback is the price is slightly on the high side. If they could offer a better discount or promotion, I’m sure this place will be crowded and packed with diners due to its food and panoramic view.

If you have missed the Christmas Eve Dinner Buffet, you may still have the chance to try out their Christmas Day Buffet Brunch – RM165 nett and Christmas Buffet Dinner – RM238 nett.

E&O Residences, Kuala Lumpur – A Contemporary and Luxurious Stay in the City Center

Travelling and staying in the CBD (Central Business District) of Kuala Lumpur has always been “hectic, rigid and costly”. This is due to space constraint and the sky-rocketing prices of the land in the capital city. There are many residences in this area that provide luxurious hotel and residences. However, only a handful of them are able to accommodate luxurious, spacious, intimate and warmth under one roof, and one of them is no other than E&O Residences, Kuala Lumpur.

E&O Residences Kuala Lumpur is a luxurious lifestyle service residence owned by E&O Group. The tower of E&O residence is just next to privately-owned St. Mary Residences.

Macalister Mansion, Whiskey Fest 2015

Macalister Mansion, A 100-year-old colonial mansion is located at the central of Georgetown, Penang. Previously, I had written about the Wine Fiesta 2015 at this gorgeous mansion a few months back. This round is the time for Whiskey Fest 2015.

macalister_mansion_whiskey_fiest24

Although Macalister Mansion is old and aged but it is always packed with happening activities. With this round of Whiskey Festa, the event was extended to the poolside with temporary tent set-up.

macalister_mansion_whiskey_fiest22

Although the tent was a temporary set-up, the inner part looked magnificent. It was filled with star light LED and was air-conditioned. It was really breathtaking upon entering the tent.
