Breakfast Thieves

Breakfast Thieves’ setting is sure to steal more than a few hearts, conceived by the local Cocokacang design studio, evoking a glasshouse with wooden inflections that lend a suave sheen & welcome warmth to the industrial iciness of this erstwhile printing warehouse space. Like the Melbourne original, this is a daytime-only eatery with brunch fare that merits investigation. Most importantly, they serve good coffee!

Common man coffee

Coffee here are pretty amazing as my latte do give a very nice slight acidic taste yet gives you a nice burst of aroma after taste. Ice Cappuccino is rather interesting too as the first sip with give you a punch of unique taste that later will flow down your throat with the after taste. Lovely blend. . I have no doubt that they currently top in my list as a perfect brunch place. Indeed a highly recommended cafe in KL now. Perfect service too.


My long weekend mornings are usually pretty lazy affairs – sleep in, coffee and maybe a slow walk/run depending on my alcohol consumption the night before. My recent visit to Rise and Shine by Tapestry KL was a definite detour from my routine. When I shuffled inside the bright and open space, and smelled the freshly brewed coffee and heard the eggs sizzling, however, I knew it was going to be a welcomed change, Impressed and comfortable in my surroundings. Reasons to visit Rise and Shine by Tapestry KL: A vibrant and comfortable atmosphere that offers unique twists on both Malaysian and Western brunch. A great way to spend a long weekend with family and friends sharing familiar food that tastes slightly different (but just as delicious) with excellent coffee as a bonus.


Atas Modern Malaysian Eatery KL

An all-day dining restaurant with designer elements, ATAS Modern Malaysian Eatery taps into wordplay for its title—meaning ‘above’ or ‘bougie’ in Malaysian slang, ‘atas’ describes the hotel restaurant to a T. Earlier this year, we heaped praises upon the restaurant for being one of few where every single ingredient has traceability, and are keeping our fingers crossed that this attention to detail doesn’t slip over time. From locally harvested caviar from Tanjung Malim to European greens grown in Cameron Highlands, the restaurant’s produce is carefully curated and well assembled. The tiger grouper with tuak, a type of rice wine from Borneo, is simply intoxicating, while the corn-fed chicken remains one of our favourite poultry dishes in town.

DC Restaurant

DC Restaurant espouses the slow food movement via ‘la jeune cuisine.’ The result is a breath of fresh air, as Chin goes to great lengths to procure premium ingredients before adding layers of Japanese influences to his classical French training. Your evening begins at Le Comptoir for a round of aperitifs. Later, a server will usher you to La Salle. Vegetarian menu aside, DC offers three degustation options: a 3-course menu (Light), a 5-course menu (Taste) and a 7-course menu (Discovery). 

Sushi Ryu

With sushi dining becoming incredibly popular in Malaysia, especially restaurants that feature the popular Japanese food front and centre, Sushi Ryu jazzes up the KL dining scene with a contemporary fine dining take to the cuisine. The restaurant is helmed by a chef that earned 2 Michelin stars, to make for a memorable experience.
