    1. Kelly Siew, Ante, Cantaloupe, Acme, Sky Bar, InterCon, WTF, Vasco's, Celestial Court, Enak KL - all above - these spots all have great local dishes. If you're talking street food however, that's another story and Malaysia has a whole host of bloggers that know WAY more than I do... so I leave the street food lists to those experts.

  10. Interesting list, lots of places to try out.

    Although after looking through the menu at Mulberry, I wonder how it can be hailed as the Most Unexpectedly Delicious Hidden Gem.

    1. Hi XO, We tried Mulberry's Christmas menu and found it beautifully presented, well balanced and delicious. We weren't expecting such high quality food in that location. It's in a building right at the very end of Jalan Ampang. I suppose there are a few office blocks around there, but it's not an area we usually visit. ;-)

  14. out of all these restaurants which ones are halal?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi Ethica, I don't recall now which ones are halal or not. I believe that many of them are pork-free but might not have Halal certification. For example Miss Ellie Tea House does not serve pork nor alcohol but I don't know if they have a Halal certificate. That's a good question though. I'm going to try to remember to add that in future posts. Warm regards, Monica
