All decisions by Eat Drink KL regarding this contest are final.


The Quayside Fiesta will be held every final weekend of June, July and August, from 5pm onwards. A wide-ranging slew of F&B purveyors will be making their tasty presence felt this month at the Eat Drink KL Food Market component of the Quayside Fiesta, including established and up-and-coming names serving something for everyone!

Come hungry and dig into special offerings by:
A Pie Thing, for comfort-food pies in both savoury and sweet varieties
Curbside Cantina, KL's thriller for tacos and much more
Guac, purveyors of cheerful Tex-Mex street-food cuisine
Joy St., cooling us down with authentically made Italian gelato and sorbets in multiple flavours
Kukus Stim Habis, for nasi lemak, nasi dagang and nasi minyak with four sambal varieties
Makirito, for unique sushi burritos you can sink your teeth into
Mom's BBQ, known for American-inspired Low 'N Slow Barbecue made right here in Malaysia
Nachoslah, for temptations like Supreme Cheese Nachos and Supreme Salsa Nachos
Pezzo, for tastily topped pizzas baked fresh, served by the slice
Softsrve, makers of soft-serve ice cream with waffles, toasts and more
The Yard, the city's urban pie-and-milkshake stop

You can work up an appetite at the Quayside Fiesta by indulging at the Lazada Bazaar, curated by Lazada, featuring up to 25 vendors selling their exciting wares in the Home & Living department. ​You'll be able to shop for an array of wares for your home, from furniture to decor and even electrical appliances. This is the first time that Lazada will conduct a bazaar where shoppers can physically shop for the products while still enjoying the convenience of having the products delivered directly to your home! So come on down and enjoy special discounts as well as the unique shopping experience at the Lazada Bazaar.


For film buffs, Movies Under the Stars should not be missed - set by the lake and under the open skies, visitors can relax in a comfortable lounge-style picnic setting to watch exciting movies (completely for free) on a giant projection screen, with free-flow popcorn and fairy lights to set the mood for a starry evening of epic entertainment, comprising Busker (a contemporary local Malay romance) on Saturday night, and Think Big Big (a heart-warming Malaysian Chinese comedy-drama) on Sunday, both fit for family members of all ages.


Come dance the night away or simply chill out to some jazzy tunes over a meal under the night sky as music fans are treated to three different live acts every night, consisting of talented Malaysian performers like singer-songwriter Leaism, popular band SOAP and jazz-blues artist Dani.


With the Aidilfitri festive spirit still going strong, it's the perfect time for Raya-themed craftsmanship, ensuring that the entire family can come together in a productively playful way. Glue and glitter await your creative mind to produce your own Raya greeting cards, as materials will be fully provided for your use, completely free of charge.

There'll even be a ketupat-weaving workshop this month, putting a modern twist on the iconic Raya symbol with colourful ribbons. Weave your own multi-hued traditional ornaments, and fill them with candies.

Other activities continue to promise plenty of family-friendly intrigue: Put your knowledge of Malaysian kuih to the test with a blind-tasting session - blindfolded participants who can correctly identify two out of three local delights will score free meal vouchers.


With loads of excitement to keep visitors engaged throughout the evening and well into the night, come spend the weekend with us in Kota Kemuning on 30 June and 1 July for a fun and truly memorable fiesta at twentyfive.7 Kemuning! Location: twentyfive.7 Property Gallery

Fasahet Somaya @ Cairo, Egypt

Open only for two hours each evening, from 5pm through 7pm, Fasahet Somaya features the cooking of one woman, Somaya, whose food represents Egyptian homemade fare at its most fulfilling. The menu is limited to a few dishes that change everyday; it's best to head here before opening hours and make a reservation, since the several tables in this small space fill up extremely fast - on some occasions, the kitchen might be out of food by 630pm. Cheap and cheerful sustenance.

Project Happiness @ C180 Cheras

Could happiness be warm, crunchy-thick toast, stuffed with soft salted egg custard (RM19), served in a cafe with flowers, balloons and hug-worthy teddy bears for sale? At the right time, the answer might be affirmative. Since ice cream makes everything merrier, order two extra scoops of ice cream, in flavours like charcoal lemon (RM8) and Musang King durian (RM9).

Project Happiness
B-16-UG, Dataran C180, Jalan C180/1, Cheras, Kuala Lumpur. Open Wednesday-Monday, 1pm-12am.

Jen's Underground @ Urbana Residences

Formerly a home-based teatime private kitchen, Jen's Underground is now a full-fledged cafe set beside the fifth-floor pool of Petaling Jaya's Urbana Residences condominium. The kitchen remains helmed by matriarch Jennifer Palencia, who brings heart to meals like savoury beef pot roast partnered with rice, fruits and vegetables (RM22); roasted chicken in spicy fried rice (RM14); a 'pantry pasta' made punchy with sun-dried tomatoes; and freshly baked meat pies.

It's a friendly space for escaping the crowds; relax and linger a little over a tenderly textured coconut pie (RM8) and crunchy-creamy chocolate strawberry pavlova (RM12). Jen focuses on honest 'community cooking,' hand-making her fare and relying on quality ingredients, including pesticide-free greens.

Jen's Underground
5th Floor, Urbana Residences, Jalan PJU 1a/46, Ara Damansara, 47301 Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. 
Open Tues-Sun, 11am-8pm. Tel: 016-249-8009
