Traveling is also part of discovering new eating places. This second part of my Kuala Lumpur food article continues with many more interesting dining places.

It is an absolutely great meaty meal at El Cerdo located on Changkat Bukit Bintang. Together with some friends, we sampled El Cerdo’s notable dish of suckling pig and other dishes like Iberico ribs, sausage platter and seafood paella.

The half size piglet is priced at RM188. The waiter gestured us to cut the piglet with a plate. Not only is it a memorable experience for us but the food also delighted our taste buds. The suckling piglet done with amazingly crispy skin and soft meat with melting fat had everyone asking for seconds.

Among the choices of desserts, we had the raspberry sherbet and the rum and raisin ice cream. The latter is far better of the two.

Our trips to Kuala Lumpur had us visiting many places, savoring the city’s food and staying at Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral. Recommended by friends Alison and Narelle, the hotel with a casual, hip vibe offers solid bed to help us sleep through the nights.

The hotel is a convenient place of accommodation, especially for those who do not have transport as it is located opposite the KL Sentral transportation hub.

The Japan Sweets Fair event held in Isetan KLCC in Kuala Lumpur is a sweet extravaganza, featuring lots of Japanese sweets. I had the opportunity to attend the fair which runs in the concourse floor from 18th October to 30th October 2013.

The event is capped off with the special appearance of Iron Chef Hiroyuki Sakai who specializes in French cuisine. Another special guests is none other than patissiers Chef Toshihiko Yoroizuka, who has made headlines for designing hats, bags, shoes and dresses that are not only good to look at but also good enough to eat.

From mid-October to December 2013, Dragon-i Group of Restaurants will be airflying the seasonal delicacy hairy crabs twice weekly from Yangcheng Lake located to the northeast of Suzhou, China.

Dragon-i seems to have the China’s most cherished crustaceans recipe for success, having offering the crustacean for the past five years. I had the pleasure of savoring the gentle crustaceans at the Dragon-i Hairy Crab Premium Set Menu Promotion Press Conference held at its Sunway Pyramid outlet.

On my hotel dining reviews in Kuala Lumpur, I have checked out several dining outlets in Renaissance Hotel Kuala Lumpur, and one of them was Med.@Marche-Live. The open concept restaurant offers a relaxed and casual dining atmosphere, with air-conditioned dining room and great terrace sitting.

These days, the restaurant brings a new dining experience to diners with the presence of Australian Paul Lewis as the Executive Sous Chef.  He took over the kitchen this year and has since made his debut in the MIGF 2010. We were privileged to meet up with the chef and at the same time sample some of his dishes from the menu, which focuses on unique Italian specialties and ‘comfort’ food!

My travel hotel destination this time to Renaissance Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, was an introduction to the hotel’s newly-refurbished Lifestyle rooms.

The hotel is tucked in the bustling corner of Jalan Sultan Ismail and Jalan Ampang, a great location which is walking distance from the monorail station and many other attractions. The different wings of the hotel combines modern comfort and renaissance art and design.

Finding a place of accommodation in Kuala Lumpur is a breeze with its plenty of hotels. For short trip, staying in the hotel would be right, but when there is a need to be away from home for a longer period of time, serviced apartments and its abundance of facilities and services are most preferred.

On my last trip down to Kuala Lumpur, I had the chance to experience a week stay at the serviced apartment in Prince Hotel & Residence Kuala Lumpur. Located in Kuala Lumpur’s Golden Triangle on Jalan Conlay, the Prince Residence’s serviced apartment is a stroll away from the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, Petronas Twin Towers and minutes drive away from the Embassy Row on Jalan Ampang. What’s more, Suria KLCC Shopping Mall, Pavilion and the many cafes, restaurants and bars, are a leisure stroll away!
