Hwa Ga Ala Carte Korean BBQ Buffet @ Solaris Mont Kiara

Hwa Ga Ala Carte Korean BBQ Buffet @ Solaris Mont Kiara
By vkeong Hwa Ga is a Korean BBQ restaurant that seemed to just appear out of nowhere. If my gut feeling is correct, it is a rebranding or offshoot of San Nae Deul which used to (and still?) run Korean BBQ buffet promotions on group buying websites.

Chicken Up – Singapore’s #1 Korean Fried Chicken @ Subang Jaya
By vkeong Chicken Up is the latest addition to the lineup of Korean joints in KL and I am just glad that cheese is not used as a tool to attract customers. Seriously, it’s time to put a stop to this cheese madness. Not everything magically tastes better with cheese, OK? Anyway, if our chimaek ...

KTM ETS (Electric Train Service) from KL Sentral to Butterworth

KTM ETS (Electric Train Service) from KL Sentral to Butterworth
By vkeong Taking the train is my favorite (and safest) form of transportation when traveling between KL and Penang.

Blue Inn Seafood 海洋客栈 (手抓海鲜) @ Taman Usahawan Kepong
By vkeong Looks like seafood boil is more than a fad, it’s here to stay. And now the fever has reached Kepong in the name of Blue Inn Seafood, where you can relish the same “seafood on table”, but prepared in Chinese style. Affordability has to be the biggest pull factor of Blue Inn. For ...
