KUALA LUMPUR

SPOTLIGHT

Neighbourhood of Good Eats

Lined with beautifully restored

colonial shophouses, Duxton Hill

makes for a very picturesque setting.

Its unique architecture aside,

this prominent neighbourhood

has carved a reputation as an area

that is both a feast for the eyes,

as well as the stomach.

The area once known more

for its KTV operations decades

ago is now a renowned foodie

destination – thanks to a

number of quaint restaurants,

bars and cafés that have set up

shop in the neighbourhood.

Catering to the tastebuds

of Singapore’s young, hip

crowd and omnipresent expat

community, this delicious

enclave serves up a wide variety

of international flavours and

refreshing beverages.

From fresh seafood to Spanish tapas

as well as Mexican bites, being spoilt

for choice is a requisite in Duxton Hill.

Although there are too many to mention,

some of the standouts in the area include

the newly opened Brightside, for light bites

and refreshments and French fine-dining

establishment, Rhubarb Le Restaurant, which

owns the distinction of a Michelin Star.

Duxton Hill, Singapore

SPOTLIGHT

Time for Kopitiam

This traditional old school kopitiam

(coffee shop) is an institution for

KL-ites. Situated near the centre of

the Kuala Lumpur City Centre on

Jalan Kamunting, Yut Kee has been

dishing out delicious Hainanese

dishes for decades.

One of the ‘go-to’ places for

a typical Malaysian breakfast,

Yut Kee serves up an interesting

variety of dishes ranging from

the staple, half-boiled eggs

with toast, to more elaborate

offerings such as the Roasted

Pork Roll, which is only available

on weekends. Other mainstay

favourites include the Roti Babi - a

deep fried bun stuffed with minced

pork, stir-fried Hailam Noodles,

and the Hainanese style Pork and

Chicken Chop.

The décor of the outlet is

stereotypically Chinese with

Western influences such as mosaic

tiles and it exudes a nostalgic

appeal that keeps fans and foodies

coming back for more. As such,

it’s not surprising to find a regular

crowd lining up outside the outlet

to get a table in the morning –

especially on weekends.

NOT YOUR AVERAGE FISH MARKET

Backed by Norwegian design and expertise, the FiSK

Seafoodbar & Market has elevated the fish market concept

in the Garden City. Part restaurant and part retail outlet,

the upmarket establishment offers a Scandinavian-inspired

menu by Executive Chef Markus Dybwad.

The outlet smokes its own fish; menu highlights include

Norwegian favourites such as Atlantic Halibut and Lobster

Salad, as well as Asian-influenced offerings like the Sea Bream

Curry and Black Pepper Salmon. The outlet is also well-stocked

with a selection of quality wines. FiSK Seafoodbar & Market, 30

FRESH CATCH

Surrounded by the pristine Keppel

Marina, Bayswater Kitchen provides

the ideal setting for tucking into fresh

and delicious seafood. A favourite

haunt for seafood lovers, this casual

seafront dining establishment has

been reeling in customers with its

approachable ambience and menu

that’s populated by seasonal favourites.

Bayswater Kitchen’s alfresco

setting and waterfront views have

made it a top pick for the brunch

crowd where favourites such as

Lobster & Prawn Rolls, Soft-Shell Crab

Eggs Benedict and traditional Fish &

Chips are the order of the day. It’s also

widely popular with the after-office

hour crowd and families, thanks to its

laidback atmosphere and its extensive

sharing platters.

Whole fish, lobsters, Fisherman’s

Feasts and fresh shucked oysters are

the top picks here, naturally. Cutlery is,

of course, totally optional.
