Refreshed Menu at PREGO by Chef Marco De Cecco, The Westin Kuala Lumpur

Quite a lot has changed since the last time I stepped into Prego, the Italian restaurant at The Westin Kuala Lumpur. There’s a great sense of warm Italian welcome in the cavernous layout of Prego, reverberating from the delicious activities happening in the open kitchen right in the centre of the restaurant.

Chefs can be seen bustling around simmering pots and sizzling pans – a merry sight indeed for anyone hankering for a good Italian meal. Every now and then, insane aromas waft out from the woodfire oven when freshly-made pizzas are ready to be served.

Simple polished wooden furniture, rustic floor tiles and colourful hanging lamps amidst the earthern-theme deco immediately are the perfect backdrop for a pleasant meal crafted by Chef Marco De Cecco and his culinary team. This Chef de Cuisine of Prego hails from Italy and his love affair with food started in the kitchen of his grandparents’ restaurant, Trattoria De Cecco. Graduated a civil engineer, it’s incredible that his passion in the culinary field remains strong in the 12 years he spent in Italian kitchens. He then continued his culinary journey to Libya and his last posting before The Westin Kuala Lumpur was as Head Chef in Capri Singapore.

With Chef Marco now helming the kitchen of Prego, diners can look forward to an enhanced menu featuring many of the chef’s signature dishes. We had a chance to sample some of Chef Marco’s creations recently and could see his culinary skills at work, starting from the very fresh and simple Insalata Rucola.

Insalata Rucola (RM38) Rocket Salad with cherry tomatoes, balsamic reduction and shredded parmigiano reggiano

Saute Asparagus with Garlic

Whenever I see black mussels on a menu, chances are high that I’d order it. Chef Marco’s version comes in a mildly spicy light tomato sauce. Slices of italian bread are served together to mop up the sauce!

Impepata di Cozze – Black Mussels with Spicy Tomato Sauce (RM52)

Pasta and pizzas are mainstays in any Italian restaurant and in Prego, they are all made in-house. Freshly made pizzas are quickly cooked in woodfire ovens and served with gorgeous cheese toppings. We love the handmade tagliatelle in Prego. The smooth flat pasta is such a great comfort food and our tummies heaved with delicious satisfaction slurping down every single strand!

Pasta Divina – house-made tagliatelle with clams, mussels, scallop, prawn, squid in light tomato sauce with lemon zest (RM72)

Prego Pizza with barbeque glazed lobster, mozzarella, red onion jam and olives (RM88)

Chef Marco’s spicy lamb sausages are really good, as we found out. Served with polenta and caramelised onions, it’s pretty substantial serving.

Grilled Spicy Lamb Sausage with polenta, caramelised onions and cherry tomatoes (RM78)

The above dishes are all available in Prego’s a la carte menu and some of them are served in their Viva Italia Sunday Brunch from 11.30am till 2.30pm. This promises to be a very satisfying Italian eat-all-you-can dining experience. The sumptuous selections will have you indulging in a good selection of antipastos, salads, seafood including freshly-shucked oysters, cheeses, premium meats, handmade pastas, pizzas and memorable desserts.

D’MUNCH KITCHEN, Old Klang Road, Kuala Lumpur

This post is specially dedicated to pork lovers!

D’Munch Kitchen, located on the ground of Petalz Residences along Old Klang Road, is a pork haven. Every dish features pork or parts of the piggy, to be eaten with plain rice or mantou (steamed or deep-fried). The only non-pork dish on the menu are the blanched vegetables.

Kicking off our pork-centric meal is the Penang-style Lor Bak – rolls of marinated pork in beancurd sheets, deep-fried, sliced and served with chilli sauce. Flavours are mild so the chilli sauce came in handy.

D’ Munch Lor Bak (RM10)

Dishes served here are really very decently priced, starting from RM8 for a plate of blanched vegetables which can be a choice of lettuce, bok choy or choy sum, depending on what’s fresh for the day. The pork dishes are priced in the region of RM15-RM18 per portion and I’d say the servings are pretty generous. Each serving is good for at least 2 people and that ramps up the affordability factor of dining in D’Munch Kitchen.

The Vinegar Pork Trotters and Braised Pork came bubbling merrily in claypots, their aromas tantalising our noses before the food reached the table! These two dishes are typical home-style comfort food and when done well, elicit immense gastronomic satisfaction! If you like innards, the Braised Pork does come with intestines, upon request. Similarly, the Pork Ribs Curry and Pork Rendang were packed with flavours – best eaten with the mantou. The rice lovers may beg to differ though, as for some of them, porky dishes must go with rice – the more the better!

Vinegar Pork Trotters (RM15)


Braised Pork & Innards (RM15)


Pork Ribs Curry (RM18) & Summer Mantou (RM5/4pieces)


Pork Rendang (RM18) & Golden Mantou (RM5/6pieces)

My favourite is the spunky Pork Innards Soup. Peppercorns and pickled mustard leaves gave this robust soup their signature spunky flavours and I couldn’t get enough of it. Whether slurped on its own or eaten with rice, this soup is a must-order item for me.

Pork Innards Soup (RM16)

Blanched Vegetables (RM8)

D’Munch Kitchen is the spot to head to whenever cravings for home-style porky dishes hit you. The homely comfort food is generously-portioned and friendly on the pocket.

New Menu at FIVE SEN5ES, The Westin Kuala Lumpur

Every time I step into Five Sen5es, the pork-free Chinese restaurant at The Westin Kuala Lumpur, I feel like I’m entering a palatial mansion. It starts from that classy passageway to the restaurant, right on to the plush seating on elevated wooden platforms at the front flanked by several huge oriental vases. Further up the right side of the restaurant, bigger tables are set up by the floor-to-ceiling windows, enabling the whole area to be bathed in glorious natural light. Soothing splashing sounds from water features and mini koi ponds enhances that sense of zen and that’s what the five senses are about: sound, sight, smell, feel and taste.

Love the open kitchen concept!

With new items added to their menu recently, I was all ready and happy to employ the five senses to check them out. First on the list is the chef’s new signature dish – Salmon Banana Rolls served with Green Tea Dressing. Crispy skin and soft sweet bananas somehow blended well with the salmon and this little surprise dispelled whatever skepticism I had earlier. So, be brave, order this and you may just be as pleasantly taken as I was.

Crispy Salmon Banana Roll with Green Tea Dressing (RM36/small for 1-3 pax)

I love soups, especially when it’s thick with seafood and crowned with a glorious fresh scallop! Pushing aside the sheet of seaweed, every spoonful dug up chunks of fresh succulent seafood from the creamy umami soup.

Braised Fresh Scallop with Seaweed & Seafood Thick Soup (RM36)

Chicken braised with chestnuts and mountain yam was such a comforting dish. Steaming hot in a claypot, the sauce caramelized at the bottom as we ate, and that added a delightful charred aroma to the dish. The softened chestnuts and mountain yam have absorbed the gravy and be warned: you may want to have some plain rice with this pot of braised goodness.

Braised Chicken with Chestnuts & Mountain Yam (RM52 small/RM98 large)

We can’t resist cod fish whenever it’s on a menu and when told that the chef has come out with a new signature dish, we just had to have it. It’s a thick chunk of tender and smooth cod fish bathed in an appetizing sauce of lemongrass, chillies and lime. If you haven’t ordered that bowl of plain rice yet, then it’s about time you do so for this dish!

Cod Fish with Lemongrass Sauce (RM160/180g)

There’s a lot going on in the pot of Minced Duck Fried Rice. In addition to minced duck, the chef has added in prawns, yam and pumpkin – all these of course made the serving more luxe but personally I feel “less is more” would be a better option. Minced duck meat should be the highlight for the fried rice with perhaps just one other suitable condiment. Nevertheless, do enjoy this ingredients-packed pot of fried rice.

Minced Duck Fried Rice with Prawns, Yam, Pumpkin in Claypot (RM45 small/RM88 large)

FiveSen5es serves the usual selection of Chinese desserts and what stood out is the Silken Mango Cream with Pearl Sago and tangy Crushed Thai Pomelo.

Silken Mango Cream with Pearl Sago & Crushed Thai Pomelo (RM20)

Cold Aloe Vera Jelly (RM20)


Peanut coated Rice Dumplings with Black Sesame Filling (RM20)

YUK SOU HIN @ Weil Hotel, Ipoh

One of the most popular meals one can have in Ipoh is Dim Sum. It’s so well-loved that not only it is eaten at breakfast and lunch, some restaurants do serve it at night as well. Growing up in Ipoh, a dim sum supper was something of a big treat for me, because we were poor and could not afford this very often. Ipoh folks eat dim sum at the crack of dawn – it’s not unusual to see the popular dim sum restaurants being full and crowded by 7am!  As a kid, I was always excited, despite being bleary-eyed, when I had to get up very early to get to the dim sum shop in town.

So, dim sum culture is a thriving “yum cha” thing in Ipoh. I recently discovered Yuk Sou Hin in the Weil Hotel Ipoh and what a nice find this is! Helmed by a Hong Kong chef, Chef Allan Tse, the pork-free dim sum served here does not disappoint. There’s no boisterous crowd here within the elegant walls and service is efficient and pleasant.

Chic and comfortable interior

We picked our items from the a la carte dim sum menu and every dish is cooked fresh and served piping hot. Despite not using pork, the Hongkong-style dim sum turned out beautifully in taste and presentation. There’s no compromise on flavours and textures.

Crabmeat Dumplings (RM12/3pieces)

Codfish Dumplings (RM12/3 pieces)

Chicken Xiao Loong Bau (RM10/4 pieces)

We started off with baskets of steamed dim sum: Crabmeat Dumplings, Chicken Xiao Loong Bau and Codfish Dumplings. Instead of the traditionally steamed Siew Mai, Chef Allan’s version was baked and topped with BBQ sauce. It’s certainly something different but the skewered dumplings turned out to be uniquely delicious! We love the Baked Snowskin Buns with BBQ Chicken too – warm, crusty and crumbly skin with tasty chicken chunks inside.

Baked Siu Mai (RM11/4 skewers)

Baked Snowskin Buns with BBQ Chicken (RM12/3 pieces)

Deep-fried Chives & Prawns Dumplings did not look very appealing initially but they were so good and once we bit into them, there was no stopping! We like the Stir-fried Radish Cake, tossed with eggs and crunchy beansprouts and big whiffs of “wok hei”!

Deep-fried Chives & Prawns Dumplings (RM10/3 pieces)

Stir-fried Radish Cake (RM10)

Prices of Dim Sum we had that morning ranged from RM7-RM12 per portion.

Besides Dim Sum, we just had to try Yuk Sou Hin’s ever-popular house special, their Signature Roast Duck specially smoked over fragrant lychee wood. We totally understand why this duck is so sought-after… crispy skin and tasty tender meat bound with a delicate smoky aroma, we couldn’t get enough of it.

Signature Roast Duck (RM45 half duck)

Still feeling puckish, we heeded the restaurant manager’s recommendation of their signature noodles, Fried Mian Xian. The silky noodles tossed with chicken slivers, eggs and fat crunchy Ipoh beansprouts left a comforting nudge in our stomachs. Ahh…but for a satisfying round-up to our brunch, Yuk Sou Hin’s famed Avocado Puree and Glutinous Sesame Balls did the job well.

Fried Mian Xian (RM37)

Glutinous Sesame Balls (RM12)

Avocado Puree (RM12/bowl)

Yuk Sou Hin’s cosy and stylish ambience makes it the perfect spot for a leisurely yum-cha session, away from the madding crowds that quite often describes other popular dim sum places in Ipoh. Service is attentive and pleasant and the best thing is that the food is cooked upon order and served piping hot from the kitchen. For more privacy, there are 8 private rooms in the restaurant.

YAKITORI DINING FUKUDA, Desa Sri Hartamas

Whenever we visit Japan, we never fail to eat and drink at izakayas there, simply because we are quite big fans of the casual food served there. Grilled skewers of chicken and other meats, done the Japanese way have a way of growing your appetite. I mean, we can sit forever in these izakayas and order countless sticks of those goodies and won’t even notice the time passing by! The relaxed (and sometimes boisterous) vibes in an izakaya – chatter, laughter mixed with clinking of drinking glasses in a smokey cheerful bar are all part of the experience.

At Fukuda Yakitori in Desa Sri Hartamas, we kinda get that atmosphere as there is a good turnout of Japanese clientele in the premise. And that’s a pretty positive sign that food must be authentic, which is proved so when we see that the chef is also Japanese. He and his assistants are kept very busy tackling the skewers just behind the bar and food is served immediately from the charcoal grill to the tables.

We enjoy every stick of those skewers, from chicken to every part of the fowl, succulent pork belly and even sticks of cream cheese! As sinful as it seems, the crunchy fragrant Kawa (Chicken Skin) and Bonjiri (Chicken Tail aka Bishop’s Nose) turn out to be our favourites. Trust me, they are damn addictive!

Yakitori (prices indicated are for per stick):

Negima (Chicken Thigh with Leek) RM6.80


Bonjiri (Chicken Tail) RM6.80


Tebasaki (Chicken Wings) RM9.80


Tsukune (Chicken Hamburg) RM9.80


Chicken Liver (RM5.80)

Chicken Hearts (RM5.80)


Kawa (Chicken Skin) (RM6.20)


Iberico Pork Belly (RM12.80)


Cream Cheese (RM9.80)

Continuing with the grilling theme, besides the skewers, the Chargrilled Lamb Chops and Japanese Saikoro Beef Cube Steak are great choices. The lamb and beef are skilfully grilled over charcoal heat, rendering them perfectly tender and juicy to the bite.

Chargrilled Lamb Chops (RM39.80)


Japanese Saikoro Beef Cube Steak (RM48.80)

To balance out the grilled food, salads, sashimi and oysters are also on the menu. Crisp fresh greens mixed with sashimi and a tangy dressing makes up the Kaizen Sashimi Salad and we can’t resist some freshly-shucked plump oysters as well. Unable to resist more oysters, the Fried Oysters with Tartar Sauce are good too.

Kaizen Sashimi Salad (RM32.80)


4 Assorted Sashimi Platter (RM48.80)


Fresh Shelled Oysters 3 pcs (RM59.80)


Fried Oysters with Tartar Sauce (RM18.80)

Seeing rice and even a hotpot on the menu, and as DL’s feeling still peckish, we have a bowl of Bara Chirashi and the Sumo Hotpot. I feel the Bara Chirashi can do with a bit more flavour though to better bind the cubes of salmon, yellowtail, scallop, prawn and fish roe in the rice. I love hotpots and as it’s a rather wet and chilly evening, the simmering soup is indeed a welcome addition. The pot is filled with a comforting broth made even more tasty with generous portions of Iberico pork, chicken fillet, chicken meatballs, mushrooms, enoki and vegetables added in.

Bara Chirashi (RM49.80) 

Sumo Hotpot (RM88.80)

Too full to eat anymore but there’s always a teeny bit of tummy space for desserts so Macha Ice Cream is the perfect way to end the meal.

Macha Ice Cream (RM7.80)

Yakitori Fukuda is a great cosy spot to wind down after a day’s work or just to chill out with friends. We’ll be back for those addictive skewers and if it’s a rainy chilly evening, the hotpot as well!

DIM SUM @ NOBLE MANSION, Plaza 33, Petaling Jaya

Dim sum has always been my go-to comfort food.

As a kid growing up in Ipoh, we didn’t have much money, so having a dim sum meal was like Chinese New Year. Heck, if I got to eat just two char siu pow only, I’d be jubilant and won’t stop smiling that entire week. Back then, there wasn’t that many fancy dim sum restaurants around and I remember the best dim sum joint was this crowded kopitiam next to the wet market in town. So, munching on my favorite har kow and lor mai kai and putting up with the interesting smells of the nearby market, my world was always right whenever I had dim sum on the table.

Nowadays we are luckier – I don’t have to wait till CNY before I can have a dim sum meal. And of course, being in the Klang Valley, dim sum in many restaurants have now evolved beyond the rudimentary har kow and siu mai. Dining trends and competition in the F&B industry have pushed the bar many notches higher… chefs are now innovating more creative items on their menus!

The Oriental Group of Restaurants needs no introduction – their network of restaurants in the Klang Valley is popular and familiar to many. Noble Mansion in Petaling Jaya is well-known for its Cantonese and Shunde dishes. Fashioned after a traditional Chinese mansion, the elegant interior provides a pleasing backdrop for an unhurried meal here. Recognising that dim sum is always welcome and popular among diners, Noble Mansion recently unveiled its dim sum menu.

Creamy Carrots Swan Puffs (RM12.80)

What would probably grab your attention would be their visually-appealing Creamy Carrot Swan Puffs, Longevity Piglets Buns, Peanut Lava Carrots and Pan-fried Dumplings with Superior Stock.  Apart from the cute piglet buns, I love the puffs and the dumplings. The swan puffs are filled with warm savoury radish; the “carrot” puffs have wondrous gooey peanut filling spilling out the moment you bite into them and the pan-fried dumplings dunked in superior broth are really good. The piglet buns are appealing visually but it’s just the regular lotus buns given a cute facelift.


Peanut Lava Carrots (RM15)

Pan-fried Dumplings with Superior Stock (RM11.80)

Longevity Piglets Buns (RM16)

At Noble Mansion, regular dim sum are given various twists for differentiation from the masses. The har kau has extra crunch, thanks to addition of Australian asparagus and the siew mai are scented with black truffles. Although the char siew pau comes with Iberico pork filling, I really can’t tell any difference from regular pork as I don’t think the uniqueness of Iberico can be discerned in the sweetish diced pork filling. Nevertheless, I enjoy the well-executed char siew pau.

Har Kau with Australian Asparagus (RM11.80)


Siew Mai with Black Truffle (RM10.80)


Iberico Char Siew Pau (RM12)

Another item which I really like are the Prawns & Baby Fungus Dumplings in Cordycep Flowers Soup – the ingredients alone will tell you that this is a premium dim sum dish. Cordyceps, a prized herb, is valued for its immunity-boosting and lungs strengthening properties – I made sure that not a drop of the soup was left.

Prawns & Baby Fungus Dumplings in Cordycep Flowers Soup (RM14)


Cheong Fun with Duck Meat (RM11.80)


Pork Ribs with Black Beans (RM9.80)

Besides dim sum, there are appetizers, congee, noodles and desserts to fill the stomach. My favourite appetizers here are…

Icy Japanese Vegetables (RM28)

Chilled Abalones with Sakura Shrimps & Chilli (RM38)


Stuffed Century Eggs with XO Sauce (RM18)

Prawn Toast topped with Bonito Flakes & Shredded Cabbage (RM18)

 

And if you still have tummy space, go for these…

Porridge with Iberico Pork & Wolfberries (RM18)


Roast Pork (RM20)


Japanese Buckwheat Noodles with Iberico Pork & Black Truffle (RM48)

I must mention the splendid Crab Noodles from the main menu.  Even if you are there for dim sum, do indulge on this plate of divine slippery smooth noodles wrapping a huge succulent crab claw – you won’t regret it!

 

We totally love the desserts in Noble Mansion and wanted to order every one of them! However, good sense set in and we could only manage these top favourites…

Thousand Layer Cake (RM9)

Golden Pudding with Bird’s Nest in Whole Orange (RM23)
Fuji Apple with Snow Jelly, Gingko, Red Dates & Fresh Lily Bulbs (RM16)
Summer Breeze Coconut Jelly (RM14)

Prices of dim sum at Noble Mansion are understandably above average, given the more premium ingredients used. Iberico pork, black truffles, cordyceps – these are clearly for more discerned palates and the classy and quieter ambience is another plus point for a more relaxed and enjoyable dining experience.

A magical stay at ANANTARA HUA HIN RESORT, THAILAND

The Anantara Hua Hin Resort & Spa is the very first resort developed under the Anantara brand. We had a short stay in this resort recently and were charmed by the rich traditional design from its historic heritage surrounded by natural beauty all around. The name Anantara in Sanskrit means “without end” – an indication of the freedom of movement flowing in harmony throughout the resort, from design to nature.

The resort’s mascot!

Built in 2001, this resort gave birth to “The Anantara Experience” with the aim of bringing guests closer to the rich culture and history of Thailand. We get the distinct feeling of being in a traditional Thai village the moment we stepped into the main lobby of the resort. Checking-in was a breeze and we were then whisked off to our Deluxe Room with a balcony overlooking into the lush greenery of the resort.

Our comfortable Deluxe Room with Garden View

Walking through the resort, we could see that much of nature has been preserved. The lush grounds are shaded with the canopy of huge trees, walkways are carved out along natural lines and everywhere there’s the sound of water – in lotus ponds, fountains and natural streams. It’s totally relaxing being cocooned in this green haven.

The Anantara Hua Hin Resort caters to everyone, from honeymooners to families and bigger groups for events and functions. Children can totally immerse themselves in lots of fun activities at Baan Pla Noi Children’s Club like art & crafts, sports, cooking and Thai language classes. For the adults, there’s yoga, muay thai, tennis and a well equipped fitness centre for the gym bunnies. Oh did I mention there are 2 lovely pools in the resort?

The resort plants its own organic herbs 

Welcome to the Spa!

The beachfront is incredibly calming, with wide stretches of fine sand rolling into the sea. We totally enjoyed chilling out here, especially at sunset when the whole environment took on an ethereal feel. One of our most memorable meals was a dinner at Sai Thong, the resort’s oceanfront restaurant. There was a cool gentle breeze that evening as we indulged on grilled seafood and lusciously tender pork ribs.

Our delicious dinner at Sai Thong!

Rim Nam is another signature restaurant at the Anantara Hua Hin Resort. It’s listed on Trip Advisor as the No.1 Thai restaurant in Hua Hin. The quaint elegant Thai-style pavilion restaurant serves traditional family-type Thai food. We enjoyed Mieng Kam, various Thai salads, green chicken curry and a perfectly steamed seabass with chilli-lime sauce.

Authentic Thai cuisine at Rim Nam

Breakfast is a delightful affair at Issara Cafe. The open-air white-washed pavilion setting is the perfect venue for a leisurely meal to start off the day. We love the many live stations where chefs prepare orders a la minute. But what really made our breakfast complete was their huge selection of fresh tropical fruits. And the coffee was really excellent too!

Glorious breakfast at Issara Cafe!

There are several other dining outlets in the resort which we didn’t get to experience – Baan Thalia (Italian fine dining), Sala Siam (contemporary lounge), Loy Nam (poolside refreshments) and their Lagoon Bar. So, there’s really nice dining options for guests in the resort, should they choose to dine in.

We didn’t do too badly at the Thai Cooking Class, eh!

Throughout its landscaped sprawling grounds, immersed in its laid-back luxury, we can’t help but be enchanted by the Thai culture in this beautiful resort – from the gardens, the food, traditionally carved wooden structures and even attending a Thai cooking class!

With Air Asia now having direct flights from KLIA2 to Hua Hin, it’s so easy to get to this seaside resort town. With a flight duration of less than 2 hours, Hua Hin is a very attractive destination and the Anantara there is a topnotch option. We will be back!
