With a land unbelievably rich in culture and a society that never seems to sleep, food is hardly an issue any time of the day, where ever you are. 24-hour eateries like Indian Muslim mamak, Chinese coffee shops offering a dazzling array of lunch options, and Malay roadside breakfast stalls are all ready to satisfy anyone anywhere at any time of day.

But as abundant as there is food, there are some days where we just cannot handle going outside and interacting with other people. When this happens, most of us will turn to the comfort of instant food, an Asian innovation designed for convenience and quick bites.

The entire world is familiar with instant noodles, but recent debate has questioned its nutritional value for staple steady consumption. But if you’re still wanting a meal that takes less than 2 ingredients and *possibly* less than 10 minutes to make, we’ve got some suggestions!

Bubur Lambuk

Rejoice for there is an instant version of this Malay Hari Raya delicacy! While the only producer we’ve seen so far is Quaker Oats (meaning the spiced porridge has an oatmeal base instead of rice), this is a pure hug-in-a-mug for tired stomachs.

Ingredients: 1 sachet of Quaker’s Instant Multigrain Porridge Bubur Lambuk flavour, hot water
Prep time: 3 minutes wait

Couscous

These little pasta grains of durum wheat semolina are found in North Africa’s staple dishes, and are surprisingly easy to prep. Often sold by the box in Malaysian grocery stores, this is one item many need to realise is an absolute pantry necessity. Its versatility with any flavour means it does not need an overtly complicated recipe to start off with. Simply toss it with plain salt and pepper, or add flavoured oils such as sesame or chilli for a quick late-night bite.

Ingredients: 1/2 cup of dry couscous, hot water, salt and pepper, dry herbs optional
Prep time: 8 minutes wait

Eggs Image credit: Katherine Chase

Do not let those horror stories of egg-frying gone bad scare you off! The egg is too flexible to just be eaten fried. Boiled, microwaved, scrambled, steamed—there is no end to preparing the egg for any meal of the day. Not to mention, it is also a great source of protein to add to just about every leftover or other instant foods.

Ingredients: Egg, (really anything you can think of in adding to it will yield savory to sweet results)
Prep time: <10 minutes in cooking

Pasta

The more popular wheat grain variant in most cupboards, pasta is practically an instantaneous meal when boiled down to basics. On the stovetop or in the microwave, these noodles are a great alternative to the constant slew of instant noodle-binging. Like couscous and eggs, pasta can be eaten as simply as tossed with butter and salt, or a real treat with that can of sardine you bought but have no idea what to do with.

Ingredients: Pasta, boiling water, salt, butter
Prep time: <10 minutes in boiling

Not only are these foods quick to make, they are also a strong base for developing even the most basic of culinary skills, and can be your stepping stone for more balanced meals. Just trust in your taste buds and keep a low fire on the stove! If you prefer microwaving, remember to keep checking in with your food so it does not bubble over.

If you happen to be looking for Cantonese food with modern twists and a modest price, Sofitel’s in-house restaurant Wan Chun Ting is here to please.

With a sophisticated atmosphere, the restaurant highlights its creatively prepared new a la carte and dim sum menu. In addition, you may find it fascinating that the restaurant specializes in Imperial cuisines known to be served at the China’s royal table for the past century!

“The new menu showcases the exceptional range of authentic Cantonese and Imperial cuisines with a twist. The highlight of the menu is not only its innovative use of fresh flavors, but also its commitment to responding to the evolving trends and growing demands of our guests,” remarks Executive Chef Heng Leong Weng.

Deep fried cod fish

If you are a fan of the three holy trinity of flavors in Chinese cuisine; spicy, sweet, and sour, this deep fried cod fish will satisfy your taste buds. Served together with Chef’s special sauce topped with shredded onion and cucumber, the deep fried cod fish is our favorite. The red sauce perfectly complements the crispy and flaky cod fish.

Wok charred marinated rack of lamb

Meat lovers should get out of the comfort zone of eating just grilled steaks. Chinese cuisines are known for using wok as a main utensil for frying, sauteing, and simmering. Anything cooked in a wok especially this lamb with glistening dark sauce is what meat lovers should be looking at. Garnished with few pieces of capsicum peppers, this marveling charred lamb with the right amount of saltiness should be your top selection.

Trio Dim Sum platter

Looks can be deceiving, and this trio dim sum platter may look a little small at first. But with hearty shrimp fillings, one’s first step into the world of dim sum via this plate will be just right. The three essentials are covered—a translucent beauty known as har gaw, a wrapped mouthful known as siew mai, and crispy fried shrimp roll, all dipped into salty sweet soy sauce will leave your eyes looking around for more.

Steamed salted egg custard bun

This popular dim sum selection is the salted egg custard bun. Warm salted egg sauce melts inside your mouth the minute you bite into the soft steamed bun, leaving a sweet yet tangy aftertaste. Be careful though, these little bites are notorious for getting all over your hands!

Cantonese style crispy noodle and water prawn with ginger and scallion

Expect more than just an ordinary yee mee dish as this one is upgraded into a sophisticated serving with crispy fried water prawn and translucent egg sauce.

Deep fried soft shell crabs

While most may be used to just eating crabs out of a hard shell, the deep fried soft shell crab covered in delicious batter is edible without fuss.

With all this food and more on Wan Chun Ting’s new menu, head on over to Sofitel at DC Mall to get your Cantonese cravings sorted!

Head chef of Champignons and restaurateur, Gary Chang, recently opened his brand new brunch haven and European bistro, Taste by Champignons. The chic new restaurant also features an in-house patisserie with a lovely assortment of freshly baked pastries, cakes, pies, cookies, and homemade jams. Think cutesy, fun-looking creations that pop with colour, and presents a carnival of taste in your mouth.

Located at EkoCheras Mall, the restaurant’s offers a stylish and airy space with comfortable seating allowing diners to feel right at home.

Colourful in-house baked pastries, cakes, pies, and cookies
Delicious pies
Assortment of macaroons

The menu consists of breakfast favourites, burgers, sandwiches, soups, salads, pastas, tapas for sharing, pizzas, and grilled steaks and seafood. No matter the chosen main, rest assured that quality and flavour is a top priority here, as is the service, all at a very affordable price.

Here’s what we tried for a Saturday brunch:

Taste Big Breakfast

This full breakfast platter comes with 2 eggs cooked how you like, homemade pork sausage, streaky bacon, sautéed mushrooms, pork bolognaise (French spelling), grilled tomato, baked beans, hash browns, and country bread. If you like your first meal of day hearty, you won’t go wrong with this, or else it’s perfect to share just so you can order a second dish.

Grilled Homemade Burger

There are three options for burger patties and you can decide on either Australian beef, Spanish pork with sage, or crispy red snapper. We opted for the pork and sage, and totally loved how flavourful it was. You can also choose to add a side of regular or sweet potato fries, and even salad.

Squid Ink Pasta with Market Seafood

Personally, squid ink pastas are rather tricky because technique does not always translate into tastiness as we have experiences first hand in other restaurants offering this dish. With that being said, let us put all worries to rest by declaring Taste’s squid ink pasta to be absolutely delicious, and beautifully presented. This is is must order dish here.

Chef Kingsley Kwoh who heads the pastry kitchen at Taste was happy to introduce to us his colourful yet delicately designed desserts that showcased his years spent training at the Mandarin Oriental in KL, as well the considerable amount of time spent at Mandarin Oriental in Macau specially honing his skills.

Elderflower

This beautiful pink concoction called Elderflower is made of elferflower mousse, guave compote, strawberry and pink guava jelly with vanilla genoise on a biscuit. It comes in a single serving and also as a whole cake.

Baristas at Taste show well-practiced skills with their latte art

Taste also has a great wine list offering wines from Chile, Australia, Spain, New Zealand, Argentina, and France.

This article was written by EatDrink Penang correspondent Yukeshwaran Devadas.

What is green in colour, comes with an abundance of health benefits and has an interesting flavour? Matcha! For the uninitiated, matcha are premium Japanese green tea leaves that’s been grounded into fine powder. On par with the food trend these days, numerous cafes in Penang have upped their menu with some matcha magic.

1. Moody Cow Dessert Cafe

Cakes are no longer a tried-and-tested classic but rather a license to get creative, which is why Moody Cow stands out from your regular cake house. Upon walking in, you’ll be blown away by the unique cake combos on offer, which includes their matcha cheesecake. The visually-winning cake is generously topped with mango slices and cranberries, creating a unison of taste and texture in every mouthful. Contrary to common belief, you’ll agree that matcha works well with other flavours.

Location: 170, Jalan Transfer, Georgetown, 10050, Penang

2. Matcho Cafe

This trendy cafe has been doing a good job drawing in the hip and younger crowd most probably for its LA summer pink interior, but definitely for its matcha-centric menu. Go with their matcha pancake with ice cream or matcha lava filled croissant, enjoy spoonfuls of matcha tiramisu and wrap it all up with their signature Matcho pink macchiato, which is a matcha latte topped with a thick layer of rose cream. You’ll be hard-pressed to pick a favourite.

Location: 99B, Lebuh Noordin, Georgetown, Penang

3. Lavish Fusion Bakery

If your ears perk up at the suggestion of freshly baked goodness, you’re going to have a great time at this one-of-a-kind bakery. Upon stepping in, the aroma and sights of delicious bread and pastries are bound to get your appetite moving. The matcha favourites here are uji matcha cronut with ice cream and matcha rose croissant doughnut. The former is a hybrid between a croissant and a doughnut, which is generously filled with matcha syrup and served with a scoop matcha ice cream. Apart from the flaky texture of the pastry and cascading ice cream, it’s the addictive bitter-sweet oomph that seals the deal. Even though it comes in a big portion, you may not want to share.

Location: 214, Lebuh Victoria, Georgetown, 10300, Penang

4. Belle and Cream

The burnt cheesecake and bubble tea are two well enough reasons to visit this relatively new cafe. They clearly have a finger on the pulse of the food trend, but it’s the flavours that keep the crowd coming back. The matcha burnt cheesecake has an addictive caramelized layer and is paired with tapioca balls to mellow down the mild bitterness of the cake. The matcha bubble tea though, hits all the right notes in terms of texture and flavour, so you’ll be leaving this cafe with no regrets.

Location: 16, Medan Lim Cheng Teik, Kampung Syed, 10250 Georgetown, Penang

5. The Craftisan

You probably don’t immediately think of this cosy cafe when you’re in search of matcha, but their matcha crepe is delicious to say the least. A scoop of homemade matcha gelato sits on a matcha-flavoured Japanese crepe, and is paired with red beans, matcha jelly cubes and lemon whipped cream. For a complete matcha indulgence, order their matcha latte too.

Location: 1st Floor, 12, Jalan Kek Chuan, 10400 Georgetown, Penang

6. Fuku Eatery & Desserts

Located along Beach Street, Fuku Eatery is making a name of its own with its wide range of Japanese-inspired dishes. As such, expect a decent amount of matcha options too. The top-seller is their signature drink named kaiju, where the matcha drink is topped with pearls and milo powder. Seeking a traditional shift? Opt for hojicha – roasted Japanese green tea, and Genmaicha – brown rice Japanese green tea. Don’t forget to leave some room for their kakigori (Japanese shaved ice), which they regularly change flavours, and if you’re lucky enough, you can dig into their matcha version.

Location: 37a&b, Beach Street, 10300 Georgetown, Penang

7. Komichi Tea House

This Japanese tea house goes into any matcha lovers’ good books. They offer a wide selection of matcha desserts that taste as delicious as they looks. Among the top patron picks are matcha chiffon cake, matcha cheesecake, matcha ice cream, strawberry matcha swiss roll, and other dainty delights. Each item is made from premium quality matcha and the techniques are nothing short of excellent, especially when paired with their aromatic teas, you’ll be in matcha heaven.

Location: 20, Lorong Toh Aka, 10100, Georgetown, Penang

8. 15Grams Coffee Bar

For those who can’t do a dessert fix without a slice of brownie, here’s a place that crowns their homemade chocolate brownie with matcha ice cream. What more can you ask for? If you do ask for more, check out their signature matcha yoghurt mousse too. The joy of letting your spoon gently sink into this layered matcha goodness, and allowing it to melt in your mouth after, is something that will linger on your mind for quite some time. Adding to that, with good service and a gorgeous ambience, it’s definitely worth a visit.

Location: 2233, Persiaran Mahsuri 1, Bandar Bayan Baru, 11950 Bayan Lepas, Penang

9. Dolce Dessert Penang

An Instagram-worthy cafe with an array of tasty desserts and freshly baked pastries?  With options like matcha tiramisu and matcha macarons, what’s not to like about Dolce Dessert? You can answer that after delving into a delectable combination of homemade ladyfinger sponge, matcha powder and mascarpone cheese, or indulging on their lush macarons.

Location: 18, Jalan Kek Chuan, 10400 George Town, Penang

10. Pilipala Poke Bar

This poke bowl famed cafe is known to constantly push the envelope with their menu, and currently, matcha seems to be the main player. You might have spotted their Matcha Boru across social media due to its unique presentation, yet upon trying the drink yourself, you’ll agree that the flavours speak louder. The eye-catching green balls are made from pure matcha and you’ll have to pour the warm milk onto them. Watching the frozen matcha balls gradually melt and mingle with the milk is a joy of its own. Also, check out their Pili Toast, a thick toast liberally spread with matcha spread and finished with cornflakes and a scoop of matcha ice cream. 

Location: B1-K19/20 Gurney Plaza, Persiaran Gurney, 10250, Georgetown, Penang

11. Brown Pocket

Brown Pocket is no stranger to those with a sweet tooth out there. They have been serving desserts that hit the sweet spot between creativity and flavours. And thank goodness, matcha makes up a large part of their menu. It’s nearly impossible to say no to their matcha pancake – fluffy pancakes topped with homemade matcha sauce, azuki beans, sweet biscuit crunch, and matcha ice cream. Other must-tries are matcha latte, matcha frappe and matcha yoghurt. This is a place where every matcha lover’s dream come true.

Location: Gurney Paragon L- 10250, 6-11, Jalan Kelawai, 10250 Georgetown, Penang

The day when the humble potato ended the famine crisis in Europe, it became a source of sustenance for us common folks. Not to mention that potatoes actually originated from the Andean range as the Incas were the pioneers in cultivating this wholesome tuber. As one of the essential crops in the world, potato flesh is tasteless and bland when eaten raw, but sprinkle some salt and pepper or drench these spuds in creamy gravy, and they instantly become a crowd favorite!

Let’s identify the different varieties of potatoes; starchy, all purpose, and waxy. All you need is to choose which one is suitable for your meal. Here is a guide for your selection of potatoes!

Image Credit: Healthline.com Starchy Potatoes Image Credit: Potandon.com

The starchy potatoes are wholesome and you can often have it as your main dish for dinner. What you can consider as starchy potatoes are Russet or Idaho which are the most common potatoes due to low moisture. You can have these potatoes as one of your main ingredients for the Italian classic, Gnocci, fried chips, or even bake yourself hasselback potatoes with some garnishing on top. Not to mention that everyone’s favorite mashed potatoes can be made with these starchy spuds because of its creamy texture.

Waxy Potatoes Image Credit: www.greatbritishchefs.com

Waxy potatoes on the other hand may be less likely to be used for mashed potatoes. When you visit your local supermarkets, you will likely encounter these potatoes with its distinguished characteristics as they come in variety of sizes and shapes. French Fingerling, Russian Banana, Red Adirondack, and many others are classified under waxy potatoes. Usually, when you boil these low starched potatoes, their shape stays intact. High in moisture and sugar, these are great for potato salads, casseroles, and much more!

All-purpose Potatoes Image Credit: Google Image

All-purpose potatoes ought to be your main preferences if you are not very well-versed within the culinary field. All-purpose potatoes as its name suggests, can be prepared in almost any way due to the medium content of both starch and moisture. Yukon Gold potatoes, white potatoes, and the exquisite purple potatoes make up the variety of all-purpose potatoes. Due to its multipurpose use and flexibility, it is highly recommended for anyone who might feel confused in the supermarket upon seeing such a wide variety.

Most importantly, when we talk about potatoes, it is often associated with mashed potatoes and fried chips, or they might be one of the main ingredients for your curry or stew. However, different countries have their interpretations of savoring these potatoes. The Swedish have their crispy
Rösti, the Spanish have Patatas Bravas, and the Canadians have their cheesy Poutin! And perhaps an unconventional way of cooking potatoes perhaps would be in the form of a doughnut as they do in Virginia USA.

Simply and straightforwardly named B.A.T.S., this Bar At Telawi Street (acronym extended) is definitely a joint to check out for some good old casual fun. Amidst the hectic row of Telawi bars that continuously profess to be the best of all that’s hip and happening, we can attest that B.A.T.S. truly delivers in its promise to keep the easy going, nostalgic, and intimately friendly vibe going all night long! Stick around for a bit, and the many faithful regulars that enjoy this bar’s live music and great food will make fast friends of you.

When co-owner Geoff Leembruggen realised what many bars either specialised in music but lacked in food, or had great food but lacklustre atmosphere, this charming two-storey lot became his passion project to be able to provide both. Open all week long from morning till late into the night, B.A.T.S. is ready to serve any and all kinds of visitors looking for a spot to relax and chow down.

One special occasion to visit this jovial bar is for its Aussie BBQ night every Saturday. Perfect for that tuck-in just before your night of drinking down Telawi lane, this newly revamped menu is bound to satisfy.  

French Merlot house wine

We jumped at a chance to sample their BBQ menu one night and started off our meal with a drink that’s not only a house pour, but also their bestseller: a delicious French merlot that goes with simply everything. At only RM84 a bottle, we noticed many tables happily guzzling the very same bottle and not stopping at just one! Soon as we were relaxed and watered, we dived right into the first order, a classic pub grub of Bangers N’ Mash. Grilled sausages accompanied with sides of creamy mashed potato and sweet mushy peas with a generous dollop of gravy will hit the spot with comfort-food dependents.

Bangers N’ Mash
Striploin Steak

On the mention of steaks however, our following serving of the simply-titled ‘Steak’ was delightful, even for me who is usually not partial to red meat. A beautifully charred cut of strip loin cooked over a real charcoal grill was fun to share with my companions for the night, and the meat was juicy and tender to the knife. To my personal delight, an assortment of fruit-based salads and other vegetables were available to round out the palette and introduce some balance to the diet. The sides also provide a great addition to the juicy beef patty that makes up the simple yet tasty Hamburger selection.

Salad bar selection
Hamburger with all the trimmings

 The Caribbean Chicken may have struck some confusion upon its initial serving (a simple fillet almost identical to the steak in charring), but its taste did all but confound. The sweet, sour, and slightly spicy flavour profile jerk marinade the island’s culinary is famed for permeated the smokiness of the grill and retained is flavourful tastiness even after having had to patiently wait for us to finish our mouthfuls of steak.

Chilli Mussels

Locals and those who have developed a fondness for the local bird’s eye chili will enjoy the concoction of Chilli Mussels, molluscs served in potently spice sambal sauce. With a prior experience eating mussels that gave me sandy experience, these ones were thankfully freed from the dreaded rocky crunch, and the kick from the sauce eliminated any worries about fishy tastes. The side of sliced ciabatta bread definitely helped us feel less shy in eating spoonfuls of the sauce alone!

Portuguese Baked Fish and Rice

Another one to enjoy is the Portuguese Baked Fish and Rice. While the spice from the Chili Mussels may be almost similar in flavour profile, we do not doubt that the unique aftertastes of the Atlantic influence will shine when tasted on its own.

Live music

B.A.T.S’ Aussie BBQ special is available every Saturday from 5pm to 9pm. Order your favourite from the selections up above, pair it with the fantastic red wine house pour, and you got yourself a beautiful start to a night of cheers, drinks, and more!

Chef Marco De Cecco continues to showcase the artistic flavours of Italy via Prego, The Westin Kuala Lumpur’s signature Italian specialty restaurant with a whole new menu!

Taking much of his culinary inspiration from his own childhood and experiences travelling across his homeland, Chef Marco proclaims “Mangia, Mangia!” or ‘eat,eat!’. Prego’s rustic, home style Italian favourites remain prepared in its large central open kitchen—bustling, boisterous, and friendly—everything an Italian household is beloved for.

Among the gourmet homemade goodness ready to cater to an intimate dinner for two, or a whole power lunch setting are Asparagi e Gorgonzola (blanched asparagus with Gorgonzola drizzle and poached egg). Even picky eaters would be curious to sample the acquired taste of asparagus as the salty sweet combo of Gorgonzola cheese and egg yolk works well as an accompanied sauce.

We loved the Ricostruzione Di Un Fungo (Reconstruction of a Fungus), which was beautifully seared scallop topped with the head of a mushroom. Adorable beyond words, the fresh briny taste of the shellfish paired with the chewy earthy flavour of mushroom encouraged more than just a singular sampling.

The Tagliatelle Gamberi e Capesante (Shrimp and Scallop Noodles) presented the quintessential Italian seafood serving, with squid ink pasta, juicy fresh prawns, slices of scallop, and hints of sprouts.

Following up with a Risotto Gamberi e Porro (Shrimp and Leek Risotto), the garnishing of crispy deep-fried scallions made each mouthful a pondering taste, with the creamy risotto buttering the tongue before the sharp tartness of the scallion crunch kicks in.

Pasta lovers might also want to partake in the Pasta Divina, featuring a Mediterranean cacophony of ingredients. Most might write it off as any other seafood pasta, but the addition of croutons soaked in olive oil provided fun bites between mouthfuls.

An Italian kitchen is definitely not complete without the offerings of pizza! With Prego’s wood fired oven, you can be sure to find authentic hand-tossed dough with all the fixes, such as the new Pizza Capricciosa topped with mozzarella, mushroom, ham, artichoke, and tomato!

Prego at The Westin Kuala Lumpur is operational from 11.30am to 2.30pm (Lunch), 2pm to 6pm (Monday – Saturday Afternoon Tea Time), and 6pm to 10pm (Dinner).
