Naughty Nuri's

Bored of Chinese food? Haven't had your Yee Sang fix? Need more? Last minute reservations?

At Nuri's, for just RM69 (portion is good for 3-4 pax), you get a whole plate of freshly prepared Yee Sang. The ingredients are made from scratch with an exception of the crackers; it is by far the most traditional one I've had - and not in a Chinese restaurant!

I'm quite fussy when it comes to Yee Sang - if it's not freshly made, chances are one bite and that is it.

For those who got bored of traditional style Yee Sang, try their Iberico flavour. Nuri's are very good with their pork so it is definitely a safe choice.

And still can't get enough of pork yet?

Signature pork salad will save the day. Have some of those crispy siew yuk and please don't forget your fruits and vegetables!

This is possibly the only place in Klang Valley to get authentic Satay Lilit Balinese style - made with pork!! Most places in Klang Valley are either Halal or they don't serve this at all. It was my first time having it and I found it to be one of the closest to the ones I have had in Bali, now I know where to get my Balinese fix...

One cannot leave Nuri's without having their signature pork ribs.
Do you want some of those ribs for FREE? Yes, you're reading it correctly - FREE!!!!

Naughty Nuri’s SS15 Subang Courtyard is hosting the biggest ribs eating event this February 28....

Quickly book your slot before it runs out - for reservation.

Hurry up as LIMITED seats are available and don’t forget to bring your own plate !

Dinner by Heston Blumenthal

Meat Fruit (£21)

What it's like to have Dinner's famous Meat Fruit... We were there over Christmas Eve and the colour of the meat fruit is different! Red wine jelly instead of the usual mandarin orange jelly!

Frumenty (£21.50)

Ribeye (£46)

The overly huge piece of ribeye.

Braised Celery (£32)

Tipsy Cake (£16)

This is the perfect ending - very balanced amount of alcohol and sugar to keep you sane. Have it with the roasted pineapple and the sourness will overrule the sugar.

Thank you Dinner for such lovely attentive service!

PS. Never knew China produces wine until this menu tells me so. Ningxia red wine... Uh.. It tasted like Chinese herbal medicine.... Not kidding! I'm no wine connoisseur, don't know how to appreciate Ningxia......

Likes: Very very attentive service, signature dishes were good. Meat fruit and tipsy cake!
Dislikes: The not so popular dishes should be skipped.

Bob Bob Ricard

I came for the champagne... Seriously. It's a silly gimmick that we will fall for it. It's nothing but just a button, simply just like any in-flight button. Press it and your champagne will not arrive. A staff will attend to you first as there are a few different types for you to choose.

Nevertheless, it's one interesting concept. They were fully booked on Christmas Day and thankfully we got ourselves a table.

Lobster, Crab & Shrimp Pelmeni (£15.50)

I was looking forward for the pelmeni, the one I had at St Pete was a lot more traditional. These dumplings arrived cold, like it had been left at the counter for a long time before serving.

Baked Oysters Brezhnev (£14 for 3)

The Russian style oysters... Somewhat raw inside, topped with melting cheese and a slice of truffle. It's so good!!! I never thought I would love baked oysters; it's supposed to be baked but the oysters are still slightly raw which is totally fine. It just made me wonder how did it stay raw?!

Jersey Rock Oysters (£22 for 3)

Just rocks, I thought it wasn't as impressive as the baked version.

Steak Tartare Imperial (£22.50)

Raw beef served with caviar. I had the starter portion as main, it was just nice for me. Anything more than that would be too much. You won't even feel like it's raw, so refreshing and it's a must to have the imperial version as the saltiness of the caviar blends in..

Roast Norwegian Cod (£22.50)

Cod is always a safe choice....

Vanilla Creme Brulee (£11.50)

Eton Mess (£9.50)

I came for the Eton Mess...

Waited and waited for the top to break apart... BUT IT DID NOT!!!!!!!!!

How disappointing... Looks like not everyone's Eton Mess will break so beautifully.. I had to use my fork to push it :( 

Thanks for the wonderful birthday cake! It was a pleasure spending Christmas / Birthday at BBR.

Likes: Great casual place for dinner... Pleasant food, some hits and misses but generally hits. Try their Russian selections (all except the Pelmeni)
Dislikes: The service could be improved, those with coats are somewhat arrogant, fierce and was just not courteous. Could also improve on their reservations, you don't quite get your table on time...

Came to know about this place for the longest time through a friend. We visited on a different occasion at Publika's branch for desserts at least a year ago... Their desserts were somewhat good and I had a good impression of them.

This time around we decided to try their savoury dishes, at Batai's branch. They offer a great variety of choices, but they do not serve pork. All their dishes were disappointing - the appetiser platter was made out of frozen food, in fact most of it were prepared, freezed and served only when a customer orders. Even if this is not a true statement, their food did taste like that. Either they were too dry or bland. With the exception of their panang curry which was one of the better dishes.

The amok was very very flat and dry - seafood did not taste fresh either.

Stir fry beef with basil which was too "wet" and salty.

Tom kha gai / coconut chicken curry, tasted very flat, not spicy and too much coconut milk.

The tom yam was alright, with the exception that their frozen seafood is a major failure.

This is nothing like Thai omelette. It's not crispy, just like any omelette you can prepare at home... Almost effortless.

PS: None of their dishes above is spicy, it's basically suitable for non-Asians, not wee bit of spiciness at all. If this is classified as authentic, where is the chilli? 

If you have The Socials card, you get a small discount for their food. However, one time experience tells me that I will never return again... Even if their desserts are good.

Likes: Comfortable place
Dislikes: Unauthentic Thai food, mostly frozen packed, re-microwave when somebody orders, unfresh seafood, food is not spicy, no "wok hei", not worth the money at all

Winter Wonderland

My favourite at Winter Wonderland... Well technically you can get German sausages at any Christmas Markets... I think having currywurst is my only reason to visit Winter Wonderland!!!! Afterall, I never like any of the rides in the park...

Vesper Cocktail Bar

It's not difficult to know what to drink in Bangkok. This bar was suggested by Asia's 50 Best Bars 2017.

The Flower Carrier (THB400), is very good for illustration purposes. Very refreshing and mild.

I like how their menu comes like a storybook, and I was clearly attracted to the name of this cocktail.

The soup cocktail was recommended by the bartender, Pan. He said this cocktail would be pretty for pictures and it's also quite strong. He made sure it was strong before serving it to me!

Campbell Soup Cans (THB400)

No it's nothing like campbell soup. It's very refreshing and at the same time you don't know when the soup would hit you. It feels very fruity but have it with the popcorn for a hint of savoury.

And you get to write your name on the glass, how cute!

As much as I wanted this simply because it's Audrey Hepburn.... But I backed off - sparkling stuff is not my kind of drink...

Likes: Cosy bar, photo-friendly drinks, very innovative, very easy to locate the bar - lots of street shops just right outside the bar
Dislikes: Nothing
