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 !

Likes: Nice hot bowl of pho, cooked with charcoal instead of stove. Still very traditional!

Southern Rock Seafood

Finally got to try some of the fresh rocks from Southern Rock Bangsar...

Other than the rocks, I probably won't have anything else. Overcooked scallop soaked in diluted, overcooked pasta. This dish is a mistake...

Their seasonal turbot which wasn't amazing - it tasted too fishy, wasn't properly grilled so it's just soft mushy. I'm not very particular with fish as I'm not exactly picky but this was too fishy to be eaten. It didn't help either when it starts to get cold. Their cooked food seems to be so lazy like cooking leftovers that's expiring soon. I certainly did not enjoy both dishes.

I really haven't got a clue of what is the owner doing. On a Friday night, no proper chef and all foreigners running the outlet. Place a proper chef and I'll be more convinced. Otherwise, just don't waste my time/calorie.

Likes: Oysters
Dislikes: Cooked food

The Envoy

A little something that was out of our itinerary. We had some time after dinner before our next reservation so we decided to pop into The Envoy where it's not listed in any particular "top" or "best" list.

It's located in Pottinger Hotel which is walking distance to other bars. The presentation of the drinks are fairly simple as they focus in the quality. The menu appears to be like a storybook where each drink comes with a little executive summary.

I remember this of all - the Dinosaur where they use Milo and it totally reminds me of Mamak style milo except this is the only for above 18 version! It can be a dessert to your meal too - tad bit sweet for me but it's interesting that a bar in HK uses Milo to craft their cocktail.

One thing for sure, I would definitely return to this place for drinks even though they are not in any specific list. I like the ambience, the music is subtle and people are able to hold conversations without yelling. Also, the drinks are crafted to your likings so if you're still not happy with it they are more than willing to prepare something that suits you, without hesitation.

Likes: Quietly tucked in a hotel bar, great place for conversation, very friendly bartenders. Great place for a drink with your date!

Daorae Plus

One of our favourite places for Korean food. Their beef are always on point - with the exception that they always run out of it!

They also have plenty of side dishes - up to 10 different kinds which of course includes the basics like kimchi.

For such premium items, expect to pay more than the places you normally would go to. On good days, they'll even bring out some specials for you... If you're a regular or you order premium items that is. They once served us the melting cheese pancake to go with our sojus, so good!

Likes: Premium Korean food with quality. Definitely one of the best in Solaris! A little pricey but it's totally worth it!
