Thanks to its strategic location right at Pavilion's entrance, Quivo is no stranger to Burpplers in the city. For group dinners and after-work drinks, the restaurant and bar boasts spacious seatings indoors, as well as a breezy alfresco area facing the swanky Bukit Bintang strip. The menu nails a balance between comfort food and fun recipes, juggling paddle board pizzas with soup in sourdough bread bowls and bespoke burgers. Start off with Tastemaker Melanie's favourite Tuna Ceviche (RM35), which she quotes to be beautifully marinated in citrus juices and chilli — a fresh burst of flavours, we imagine. On mains, you can't go wrong with the Braised Beef Brisket & Wild Mushroom Risotto (RM42). The kitchen aces the dish, creating a sublime, creamy classic with fork-tender beef brisket. Here, the night stays young after dinner so look to the dessert menu for something sweet and sophisticated to end with!

Tucked away in a quieter stretch of the shopping mall, Artelier makes an impeccable respite for good coffee and a break from the bustle. The mellow wood-and-grey decor is set against spaced out seats, providing for Zen vibes and a sense of privacy. Come for the Dirty (RM14), a no-ice concoction of ristretto and cold milk. Served without a straw, the drink comes in a sturdy glass that helps for smoother swigs! While the friendly baristas will talk you into trying their specialty Japanese black brews, cold or hot, there are also drinks for the non-coffee drinkers. These guys make a yummy Cold Chocolate (RM14), sans ice for stronger flavours. For something to eat, the kitchen dishes out clean, colourful smoothie bowls. Try the Pitaya Bowl (RM18), a tropical medley of dragonfruit, banana and mango. It's tasty, healthy and not to mention, really pretty to look at! Avg price per person: RM25

For pastry fans, the name PAUL will ring a bell — a French one, no less. The world-renowned bakery now open for business offers all the more reason to visit the mall. Here, the 128-year-old brand's trademark class takes centrestage. Rows of fresh bakes are rimmed with gold accents and surrounded by it, a dining area gone luxe — all sure signs to make a date swoon over. While the store serves both sweets and savouries, it is the former that it's famed for. Case in point: the zesty Rhubarb Tart (RM16) made to delight with a flaky, butter-rich tart shell imported from France. Also loved are the Eclair Cafe (RM13) that sees a sleek, shiny coffee glaze atop airy, cream-filled choux pastry, and the Millefeuille Chocolat (RM16) beautifully layered in luscious chocolate cream and crisp puff pastry. The list goes on, and the good news is, you can always decide to take one home with you for later! Expect the pastry to be primly packed.

When it comes to Korean BBQ, Da On is in a league of its own. The Korean fine dining establishment relies on its use of premium produce to please patrons. The sleek, stylish interior also means the venue should be saved for the serious stuff: important business lunches or special occasions! Their set lunches come in handy for the former. Meat-lovers should look to the Galbi Gui & Dolsot Bibimbap (RM55), which features their top-notch grilled beef ribs with stone-grilled Korean mixed rice. If it's a feast you're here for, go at the grill with the Modum Gui set (RM228 for two pax). The stellar combination of charbroiled US black Angus beef and assorted fresh seafood is well worth the price. Whatever you're celebrating, break out a bottle of deliciously potent Seol Jung Mae (Korean winter plum wine, RM90). This also comes in an extra posh version with gold flakes at RM95 a bottle.

There is nothing accidental about this brownies bar, a handiwork of the same people behind Accidental Bakers. The walk-in kiosk greets you with bright, white bulbs, spotlighting their endless selections of brownies. Alas, there are no seatings to enjoy your spoils on the spot, but for a take-home (or office) treat, this will be your stop. Choose from their daily picks that range from Banana Blondies (RM8) to fruity Pistachio Cranberry Brownies (RM8) and cheerful Rainbow Blondies (RM8). Each slice is a dense, fudgy square, "as big as the size of one's palm", as Tastemaker Ben Gee puts it. Their best interpretation of a brownie comes in the Salted Caramel (RM8) flavour, which supplies a distinctively salty dimension to the sweet dessert.

Here's a bar made for mid-day siestas and late night kickbacks! Along the bar-filled outdoor strip, La Boca emerges as one of our personal favourites for its fun, boisterous vibes fit for a night out with friends. Food wise, order a handful to share — it's the best way to experience their diverse Latino menu. Even if you're not a chicken-wing lover like Burppler Jocelyn Ting, you still shouldn't pass up on the Corcovado Chicken Wings (RM23). The impressive Brazilian-inspired recipe hits the spot with sweet barbecue sauce and a dash of sour cream. For a more wholesome dish to go around, the Beef Fajitas (RM37) comes in a do-it-yourself skillet of sizzling beef steak slices, pico de gallo and salsa with soft tortillas on the side. Tipple with your buddies over the ultimate Mexican beer cocktail: Michelada (RM29), which blends Corona with lime, salt and Worcestershire sauce!

Supermarket runs just got a lot more fun with Mercato's cafe and oyster bar in the picture. The restaurant opens alongside Pavilion's new entrance, encouraging pedestrians, tourists and all to make this their pitstop. For a mid-day respite, visit the oyster bar and snag one of the extremely limited seats by the bar. Not only is it easier to get oyster recommendations, it also elevates the experience getting to watch the staff shuck the shellfish. The Tatihou Fine De Claire No.3 (from RM44.90) yield small but flavourful morsels, whereas the Tsarkaya Oyster No.3 (from RM56.90) are fresh and fleshier. The bar also loads up on an interesting range of craft beers worth looking into, especially if you're intending to end the work day early!

Pavilion's Tokyo Street is made to emulate the Japanese city's own streets, and what would that be without a stop for green tea nibbles? Matcha Hero Kyoto comes to the rescue with their specialty offerings of matcha and houjicha drinks and ice creams. The small shop is marked by its unmistakable Japanese-style bamboo decor with a touch of greenery. If it's a hot day out, sneak up here for a cold, aromatic treat. The Noukou Matcha Ice Cream (RM9.50 for two scoops) is far creamier than one would imagine. Milky rich with green tea fragrance, this is one ice cream you will love very 'matcha'. For a roastier flavour, try the Houjicha Ice Cream (RM9.50 for two scoops), or go for one scoop each in the Mixed Ice Cream (RM9.50). Drinks run on the lighter side with mild, milky flavours so feel free to skip straight to desserts.

Singapore-famous brunch aficionados Wild Honey's only outpost here sees success in its international all-day brunches, preceded by egg ensembles and buttery bakes. Second to that, is their chic interior tastefully done to suit elegant brunch dates. First-timers should begin with something classic — the Melbourne (RM35) straddles poached egg and house cured gravlax on crisp rosti-like potato pancakes. But if you're celebrating the weekend eat out, go big for brunch with their weekend-only New York Bagel Platter (RM120 for two). The sensational spread includes favourites like smoked salmon, herb and garlic cream cheese, chopped egg salad and more to be enjoyed with their hand rolled poppy seed bagels. There is more good news (and food) to go around; refills are included in the set!
