This stunning high flier also happens to be a foodie, and is giving us here her top 5 places to eat out in Kuala Lumpur – we feel very touched and are looking forward to follow her advices. Have a look below, her favorite 5 restaurants in Kuala Lumpur and their signature dishes, in her own words:

  • Tom, Dick & Harry (TDH), 18, Lorong Rahim Kajai 14, TTDI – 03 7729 5678: I love this neighborhood bar as it’s cosy and packed with people that you’d know. Kind of like a Cheers kind of place where everyone is friendly and knows one another. The owners are not drinkers themselves but they are very friendly people who would organize activities for their patrons such as the TDH run (a little marathon in the morning before a cold glass of beer), TDH Fishing competitions and Golf tourneys as well. So it doesn’t feel like an ordinary bar as the owners would take the effort to get to know the guests. They have a sister bar above TDH called Hoofed where they sell arguably the best bacon pork fried rice in town!
  • South Sea, No. 229, Jalan Dua A, Kampung Baru Subang, 40000 Selangor – 03 7846 5813: I love seafood especially salted egg crabs. Each time I have guests from overseas I would never fail to bring them to try salted egg crabs at least once. Never once did anyone had a complaint! South Sea overlooks the old Subang airport runway and you can literally see aeroplanes taking off and landing while you eat. The seafood here are fresh as you can choose them from the aquarium yourself. Besides the salted egg crab, I would recommend the Spicy Sour Crab with mantou (fried buns) for dipping. Simply delicious!
  • Kampachi, several locations i.e. @ Troika, KLCC – +60 3 2181 2282 : I’m a huge Japanese food fan and it’s hard to beat the freshness of the food in the award-winning Kampachi especially if you’re into raw dishes. It has a 40 year history that started off at Hotel Equatorial and since then has expanded to 4 other standalone restaurants.
  • Erawan, You have not tasted good Thai food until you’ve eaten at Erawan located  in a tiny shoplot at Kota Damansara. You would have to pre order your food and reserve a table as they rarely entertain walk-in customers due to their limited space. Once order is made, then and only then they would purchase the ingredients to ensure utmost freshness in each dish. Erawan has been listed in the Miele guide for the past 3 years and was recently awarded Top 2 out of Top 5 Best Restaurants in Malaysia 2013. The food here is classic Thai with a twist that will excite your senses each time you visit.
  • WIP, Groundfloor, Bangsar Shoping Center – 03 2094 1789: WIP at BSC, Bangsar is a nice place to chill either for a meal or drinks. It’s usually packed after work hours all the way till closing time as they have a lively crowd, good food(both western and asian dishes) and great choices of drinks. You’d fine a lot of business people and expats in this joint. My personal favorite dish is the Portobello Mushroom Chicken Burger that is soft and succulent!
