L. Table, Lavender @ One Utama

A casual dinner with Jess at L. Table, Lavender some time ago. Let me start the post with a selfie taken on the way to work. Teehee.

No please don’t comment on my uneven eyes. FML #plasticsurgeryfailurewtf

Wasn’t surprised that a majority of my friends are not aware of L.Table. Can’t blame them after all, who would have thought that behind the crowded pastry shop is a hidden restaurant where you could not only enjoy your selected pastries without queuing, but also indulge in a variety of proper Western cuisines?

Compared to the busy front section of Lavender, L.Table offers diner a classy and elegant dining environment. Every table is nicely set up with standard table cloth, cutleries and a stalk of pretty Gerbera.

There isn’t a long list of wine, but decent number of choices for a casual dining restaurant. 

It wasn’t my first time there. I must confess that it was the Black Miso Cod that made me come back. The cod was so perfectly cooked with smooth texture and sweet aftertaste lingering in your mouth! It goes very well with the brown rice, the combination of which makes up an adequate portion.

An alternative view. The miso cod was served with asparagus and mushrooms as well.

Jess’s roasted chicken thigh. Unable to comment on it as I didn’t try.

Served with capsicum and potatoes. Looks pretty good.

The usual routine. Don’t judge! We had to strain our neck like this for food photography sake okay! XD

The nama chocolate cake was so good! Rich and moist chocolate that melts smoothly in your mouth with every bite, yet not too rich to have hurt your throat.

The actual cake is round-shaped for around RM17 or so. We ordered the one with whipped cream and berries topping which was around the same price, but only 1/3 of the cake :( No more toppings next time, just order the whole damn cake!

Row row row a boat~

Silly things we do with best friend ^^ Do you still remember how to fold this??? LOL.


Sometimes my working attire could get a tad bit tai tai-ish. Oh well, can’t be dressing up as a boring monotone OL everyday yea?

Best Iced Mocha @ Rekindle - SS2

Rekindle – one of the popular coffee places in town worth mentioning.

Nah I didn’t say so just because they provide me tools for insta-worthy photos. You’ve probably come across friends posting this similar shot on Social Media. It’s a freaking antique sewing machine! Brings back childhood memories when I used to stay with grandma. 20 years later I still find this machine fascinating :)

If you come here during weekends, it’s more likely than not that you would end up having to wait. Full house peeps. Idk since when we urban monsters have adopted the culture of drinking coffee at night.

Selection of cakes and pastries.

Tried the cheesecake which was pretty good.

Ask any regular patrons of Rekindle, they would tell you one thing for sure – one of the staff there bears an uncanny resemblance with Jeremy Lin! But but, he is better looking than Jeremy ^^

That’s him right there, swear I did not do it on purpose. In fact he is always at the café every time we visit. Not sure whether he’s the boss or the manager. I shall ask him next time :)

Bricks, bulbs and beanbags. How cosy.

I love how the café is decorated with raw recycled sacks to further enhanced the olden days concept.

Mocha was pretty good.

But even better was their iced mocha! I try to avoid caffeine at night but this is simply irresistible. Slightly bitter with thick layers of chocolate powder lingering in your mouth following every sip. . . the feeling was just heavenly!

Forget about any other beverage. If it’s your first time visiting Rekindle, you know what you ought to order. Trust me, you will never regret it!

Muugu Garden Bistro @ Off Jalan Bukit Bintang

Muugu Garden Bistro started operating some time this year in a hidden bungalow at Off Bukit Bintang near Levain Patisserie.

Despite its prime location and grand bungalow structure, the concept and prices are of casual dining standard. Over here, pasta dishes could go as low as less than RM20 whereas the steak are priced at RM40+ on average. Happy hour is available daily from 6pm-8pm during which you could get a glass of draught beer for only RM9! 

I like the fact that they cater free parking spaces for patrons, unlike places like Changkat where we have to folk up 15 bucks for the valet.

As the name suggests, there is a garden space in front of the restaurant albeit a big part of it is made up of empty field which in my opinion is kind of wasted. Could have added some beautiful floral or perhaps set up some tables for outdoor dining? Never mind about the mosquitoes. LOL

Mediocre interior setting. The lights and paintings kinda helped but we thought it could have been more refined.

Mini bar area.

Supeheroes posters.

Oh hello Caesar.

I must say that I don’t quite like the extensions and wires visibly laying everywhere which were quite an eyesore.

Rib eye steak cooked to medium rare with your choice of sides and sauce. I would highly recommend the steak here.

Chicken thigh which I did not try. I’m not so much of a chicken person.

Aglio olio with a generous amount of garlic.

Catch of the day was Dory. It was alright I thought. I personally don’t quite like Dory being grilled. It tastes better when fried.

Truffle fries was great. Contrary to others’ reviews, I thought the truffle taste was quite prominent.

Oh, we were there for Jol Wee’s birthday dinner :)

It’s been a while since we last gathered for a proper meal.

OOTN: 女孩

Overall it was a pleasant dining experience. The food was definitely worth the price and the place, a sanctuary of serenity in the middle of the city.

TWG Tea @ Sunway Pyramid

There has been so many new shops opening in Sunway Pyramid ever since I moved out of Sunway. TWG, H&M, Sephora etc. More atas now apparently.

Located at the LG Level Centre Court of Old Wing, TWG offers shoppers a sophisticated ambience of luxury tea salon to savour their fine harvested teas from all around the world.

The design of the TWG Tea salon at Sunway Pyramid very much resembles the one at Pavilion - enclosed in see-through glass panels and glamourously decorated with exquisite tea accessories.

Although we have moved out of Sunway after graduation, we did not miss the chance to visit the newly-opened TWG (not so new anymore since this is a outdated post lol) and of course, to catch up with each others' working life.

Angela, Rachel and I. I look like crap here but that's the only decent looking pic of 3 of us. FML :(

Always go for the 3-tier high tea set! *yums*

Macarons. Sweet and irresistible.

I miss the girls already! Let's plan another outing soon!

On a side note I 'accidentally' tried on this red blazer from Topshop and boy it fits me well!

Petite collection which explains. It's hard to find a blazer that fits. UK6 are always so big. How inconsiderate of them towards we Asians. Anyway it was on sale but I did not get it omgwhydidinotgetitsobsss cause I thought how many times can I wear it before someone starts calling me the girl in the red blazer. I have been trying hard not to repeat my clothes. Apart from that boring black coat which hangs on my office chair all the time lah.

Okay that sums up my outdated post on TWG Tea Sunway Pyramid.

See you soon Angela and Rachel!
