As Anna Thompson once said, “We all eat, and it would be a sad waste of opportunity to eat badly.” We at Hype wholeheartedly agree with this remark, and to back it up, we’ve identified not four, not five, but SIX restaurants where you can experience only the best of the best and eat to your heart’s content.
Trust us when we say we’ve got your back. Even when it comes to cafes, fine dining, and even local dessert spots. Start telling your friends to clear their schedules for this week because here are our picks for you:
1. Ramen Bar Shi Shi Do
Time: 11am – 10pm
Location: The Gasket Alley, 15-5 @, Jalan 13/6, Seksyen 13, 46200 Petaling Jaya, Selangor
With the alleys lined with nostalgic Izakaya and bars, the interior creates an authentic sense that transports you to Japan in the 1970s. The location perfectly depicts the distinctive Japanese culture; from the architectural design to antique movie posters, shop signs, and traditional Chochin lanterns.
Time: 6pm – 10.30pm
Location: G Floor, Starhill Gallery, 181, Jln Bukit Bintang, Bukit Bintang, 55100 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
The restaurant is the first in Malaysia to focus on the Robattayaki Omakase concept, which involves cooking dishes over a fire made of mangrove wood. Because of the open kitchen counter seating, diners may feast not only with their palate, but also with their eyes.
This is one is definitely on the fancier side but we think it’s time you give yourself a treat and let yourself enjoy the finer things in life this week. Check out their Instagram for more information.
3. KafeBali Puchong
Time: 10am – 8pm
Location: 16, Persiaran Puteri 1, Bandar Puteri, 47100 Puchong, Selangor, malaysia. 47100 Puchong, Selangor, Malaysia
We’ve all seen those beautiful pictures and videos of Bali on our feeds and your pages and just thought to ourselves “haih… I wanna go la..” Well, what if we told you that you don’t have to travel all the way to Bali because there’s a cafe in Puchong that gives off that exact Balinese vibe!
4. Mabel & Tucker
Time: 8am – 10pm
Location: 1, Jalan Selvadurai, 3rd Mile Jalan Ipoh, 51200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur
