Basil Lime Tart (RM 19) Checked out Dew in Bangsar twice and I’ve grown to like the place more each time. Dew is the sister cafe to neighbour Jaslyn Cakes and shares its space with a florist. When I want desserts and not feeling too hungry, I’ll have something light and refreshing. The idea of having a citrus-based dessert comes into mind. I had the Basil Lime Tart which is one of the more popular items here. Essentially it’s basil and lime curd in a crusty, buttery tart shell topped with basil mousse, meringue sticks and edible flowers. Although there are mixed reviews about this particular dessert, I personally like it to the extent that I had it twice. The lime and basil curd brought out a zesty, tangy, fruity flavour and marks a refreshing change from the ubiquitous lemon curd used in tarte au citron. I’d say the basil mousse is like marmite (you either like it or you don’t). Biting into the mousse unleashes bursts of herbal basil flavour. It feels like you’re eating basil leaves. I did try the other desserts as well and will share my thoughts in separate posts.

“There are three principal means of acquiring of knowledge.. observation of nature, reflection and experimentation. Observation collects facts; reflection combines them; experimentation verifies the results of that combination.”- Denis Diderot A new comer to the ever so dainty Dew dessert bar.. Strawberry and pistachio tart that has an interesting stark contrast of colours, textures and flavours too.. surprisingly it wasn’t too overly sweet but the pistachio flavour wasn’t really strong #afoodiesaffair #burpple #burpplekl #bangsareats #dewbangsar

Assorted Cakes And Croissant Fine dessert experience. I like the creativity in all their dessert. Amazingly delicate in the decoration, and being mediculous in the taste. I enjoyed the desserts a lot. It complement my fine afternoon so well, it made me a happy person all day long. I am sorry I do not have the full name of desserts, but what we ordered are chocolate croissant, blueberry cheese cake, hazelnut nutty ..... dessert, and strawberry mint dessert. I love everything! Croissant was so crispy and smells so good. Hazelnut dessert were true on the flavor, with interesting texture of that soft cream, followed by slight chewy puff, and then crunchy nuts. I have the same heavenly feeling for that strawberry mint dessert. Lastly cheese cake, I am almost totally do not take cheese and milk, but this was light in taste, I could accept it. I love these so much. Price: RM19 for cakes, and RM8 for croissant, Food: 10/10

For Pork Noodles Extraordinaire Tucked away on Jalan Vivekananda, Money's Corner and its select food court fare will come through for a penny-pinching meal. What's more, the location within a parking area means you'll never have to worry about finding a spot. It's essential you try Peter's Pork Noodle at least once, especially if you spot semi-retired proprietor Peter in action. A bowl of his Pork Noodles (RM6.50) features plenty of minced pork, mixed innards and the cloudy, comfort-giving broth that boasts a delicate sweetness. Although the same stall also operates in the nearby Restoran One Sentral, it is this Money's Corner 'original' that holds their claim to fame. For a rice alternative, Tastemaker Brian suggests hitting up Moorthy's Mathai for a handsome Banana Leaf Rice (from RM6.50) spread. The deeply flavoured curries — especially the fish and chicken — have the perfectly runny consistency to ladle over rice. Also consider upping your quota on greens with the Fried Bitter Gourd (from RM2), thinly sliced for an extremely crispy bite. Avg price per person: RM10 Photo by Burppler Amayzing

Pork Noodle RM6.50 Pork noodle is always my favourite choice for breakfast. So this time i give a try in this "Peter's Pork Noodle" which located right of Money's Corner. The small bowl of pork noodle costs for RM6.50 with egg, the ingredients are minced pork, pork liver and vege. I hope they can serve pork intestine too. The broth are just nice as they adding in pork lard, and not oilly in taste. 6/10

Spicy Bacon Pizza (RM16.80) Another yummy dish to order off the menu. I love their pizzas! Thin-crusted pie blanketed by melted cheese and loaded with spicy bacon.

Nachos Chili Con Carne w/ Pork (RM18.80) A must-order whenever I’m here! Best eaten with a glass of frozen beer. Cant stop raving about this cheesy, super calorific and sinful plate! There’s something so extraordinarily dirty about the whole experience, but oh so satisfying. Crispy nachos covered in tangy chili con carne and gooey cheese. Optional but dip them in the bowl of creamy melted cheese (MORE CHEESE because you’re already sinning, so might as well take it to the next level).

For Easy Happy Hour Eats Now up to their third location, Uncle Don's entices with their 'Dine Like A Don' tagline and sure enough, it ticks all the right boxes for a cheap and good meal with beer to boot. That said, not all dishes here meets the mark so we're here to help you order only the hits. To go with their Xtra Cold Carlsberg (from RM9.95 a mug), the Spicy Bacon Pizza (RM14.80) is not only delicious, but good to share between (at least) two. The pocket-friendly pie will help cut down on your spending on food, perhaps to funnel it into more drinks instead. But if you're more of a must-have-rice-for-dinner kind, the menu has something fantastic for you. The Filipino recipe for Sizzling Sisig (RM12.80) is a flavoursome delicacy made from parts of a pig's head and liver and before you cop out of this exotic dish, know that it tastes and looks much better than it sounds. It's also served with rice and keropok on the side. Avg price per person: RM15 Photo by Burppler Foodie Moo

Hup Kee Seafood Restaurant According to many foodies, this is the oldest Chinese restaurant in Jalan Ipoh. Their Yau Cham Wan Yu (pic) is a must try here. It's crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside and after about 10~15 sitting in it's sauce, it's still crunchy. Ordered their 油浸鯇魚, 鹹魚花腩煲 and 上湯元菜 for 2 persons and it cost us slightly over RM 100 (including 3 rice and 1 pot of Chinese tea). And they give you free dessert too. We get jelly on our visit. Caution though, their food tend to be on the sweet-ish side.

For Satisfying Seafood Tai Chow The name Hup Kee resonates with Jalan Ipoh as one of the oldest tai chow restaurants serving families and friends in the vicinity. Tastemaker Brian recommends their specialty Yao Cham Wan Yu or Deep Fried Freshwater Carp (seasonal prices). The fish is deep fried to achieve the ultimate crispy skin while still maintaining a moist inside, then doused in a mouthwatering, special-recipe soy sauce. Resembling supersized meatballs more than it does fried pork, the unique Sweet and Sour Pork (from RM15) is also a top dish that makes its way to most tables at the restaurant. It's imperative to have these scrumptious dishes with rice and even more so, people to share them with — bring the family! Avg Price: RM25
