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.

Just recently, we get the first taste of Rasa Deli’s croinuts, a delicious merge of croissant and doughnut. The deli at Shangri-La’s Rasa Sayang Resort and Spa, Penang is making the croinuts, a version based on the cronuts created by New York-based chef Dominique Ansel.

“The croinuts are made of laminated dough and deep-fried. The soft and layered interior is filled with fresh tangy lemony flavored pastry cream and its exterior rolled with flavored sugar,” says executive pastry chef, Dino Wan Teik Boon.

Golden Crust, a kiosk with its core of freshly baked hand made gourmet pies, tarts & quiches opened recently in Gurney Plaza. There is a range of fillings and crust including crust pastry and puff pastry. I was overwhelmed by the selections on the menu.

The cottage pie is rich, with a filling of meatiness, green peas, corn, carrots, blend of fresh herbs and a layer of creamy mashed potatoes. The combination of flavors are well-balanced. It is well received by customers, especially for those who like the smooth texture potato with light gravy.

The Spaniards started it, the Aussies are enjoying it and so did myself. It was a day full of fun and food in my Perth holiday. After half a day of shopping in Fremantle, I met a few of my relatives and headed down to Chocolateria San Churro on Freo’s cafe strip.

On my recent trip to Kuala Lumpur, I made my maiden visit to the bakery-cum-cafe Patisserie RUI Artisanal in Mont’ Kiara Meridin. This nice cozy place only house a couple of tables, but their array of cakes, pastries, chocolates and snacks are simply mouth-watering.

Emphasizing on the petite and beautiful presentations, RUI makes it a point to ensure the packaging of their products are charming. The chocolate and cookies are all wrapped up in boxes and bags with colorful ribbons, indeed very suitable for gifts & treats.

Nyonya Kuih can be found in most of the wet market around Georgetown. They come in many different texture, shapes and multi colored. They are mostly steamed with some deep fried and baked.

I got to enjoy some freshly made kuih at Kuih Nyonya Moh Teng Pheow located in Jalan Mesjid, Off Chulia Street. The owner, Mr Mook and his family has been making the Nyonya Kuihs and supplying them to kuih peddlers for many years in Penang but nowadays they just cater to the hotels and directly walk-in customers.
