Yakiniku Toraji

Cuisines Japanese
Business Hour 11am - 3pm, 6pm - 11pm

Due to changes in the currency exchange rate between the ringgit and the yen, Yakiniku Toraji has improved their signature premium course menu (while retaining the original price) to correctly reflect its true value. Not only the course will include more meat, some of the existing items have been upgraded as well. Lastly, you definitely would not want to miss Yakiniku Toraji’s weekday set lunch. There are two types, one comes with marinated Wagyu beef at RM30 (limited to 10 sets a day) and the other is served with Australian beef (no limit) at RM40. Every set is also accompanied by an appetizer, rice, salad and soup. Trust me, it’s super worth it

Wayback Burgers - Melawati Mall

Cuisines American Burger
Business Hour 10:00AM - 10:00PM

Like your favorite song... or that friendship formed in grade school. Wayback Burgers is all about creating great memories that stand the test of time. That's why our restaurants are warm and inviting - comfy places where you can hook up with good friends, put your elbows on the table, and simply be yourself. Kind of like the Great Store of yesterday, where the locals would gather around the stove for great stories and good companionship and let the world go by. Everything felt familiar and - almost in an indescribable way - "just right." Rest assured: You can still get those same feelings today. Because at Wayback Burgers, we're a throwback to a simpler, more genuine time. And as we continue to grow, our humble beginnings still represent everything we stand for.

Wayback Burgers, one of the ‘better burger’ brands from U.S., has opened up their first outlet in Malaysia in Melawati Mall. When ‘better burger’ chains are mentioned, they usually refer to the industry leaders like Five Guys and In-N-Out Burger. These chains are supposedly a class above fast food restaurants and serve fresh to order burgers with higher quality ingredients. Overall our first experience at Wayback Burgers was a disappointing one. Even more so, considering we braved the traffic all the way from Kepong and had to deal with the mall’s horrendous parking. To be absolutely fair, the restaurant is new so maybe they still have some things to work out. But all I can really think of now is that we could have went down a few floors and eaten at Carl’s Jr instead

With everything considered, the only let down in our meal was the beef bone ramen. And although the Special 4 Cuts did not impress, I do not wish to pass a blanket judgement on the other more premium platters until I have actually tried them. I am positive we will return, but probably for weekend lunch only when they have better deals. If you are planning a meal here, I have attached their ala carte menu in the following gallery for your budget consideration.

Oriental Chinese Cuisine

Cuisines Dim Sum Chinese
Business Hour 12:00PM - 2:30PM, 6:00PM - 10:30PM

Located at Pullman Hotel Kuala Lumpur Bangsar Level 1,We have a seating capacity of up to 220 guests. We offer modern authentic Dim Sum as well as wok-friendly dishes and small eats and not forgetting its hand-made Musang King Durian pancake.

Let me begin by saying that authentic dim sum should not be pork free. Although not every dish in dim sum restaurants contains pork, the iconic ones such as char siu bao and siu mai are traditionally made with pork. So when you substitute the main ingredient with something else like chicken, you have distorted the intended tasted. But since we live in a multi-racial country where everyone loves dim sum, there is a demand for halal and pork free dim sum restaurants, especially in KL. Among them, Oriental Chinese Cuisine in Pullman Kuala Lumpur Bangsar is one the few good ones which I would recommend.

Recently, my weekends were spent on hunting for prawn mee.

Heng Kee F.T. Bak Kut Teh 兴记(古早味)肉骨茶

Cuisines Chinese
Business Hour 5:00PM - 1:00AM Closed on every alternate Tuesday

If you frequent Kepong, you would notice that there are many bak kut teh restaurants with the same Chinese name – 兴记. This is not a coincidence because they are opened by the disciples of the same master who taught them the recipe. That also explains why their bak kut teh and supplementary dishes are so similar to each other. Recently we went back to the Heng Kee at Bandar Menjalara and were disappointed to learn that their bak kut teh had taken a dive. I wouldn’t say it was bad, but certainly not as nice as we remembered. If you are keen to know how 兴记’s bak kut teh is supposed to taste like, check out Heng Kee F.T. Bak Kut Teh at Kepong Commercial Park.

Lamb lovers must try the Rack of Sambal Crusted Lamb Loins @ RM34 in the tapas section. We were delighted with the generous portion and you can see that the lamb loins are given in thick juicy cuts. The accompanying sambal was great too and you can taste the dried shrimp used in it.

Actually it’s quite hard to go wrong any of the stalls here. Some people like the Sam Kan Cheong pork noodle while my wife always orders the Ipoh style dry curry mee. As for me, I prefer the wantan mee.
