Do Eat With Us, Kota Damansara

By Aiman Azri

Jemput makan: Do Eat With Us' nasi lemak is santan-strong, perfectly paired with the spiced-up ayam goreng rempah (RM11), while the lontong is tantalisingly thick and rich, with the bonus of paru goreng on the side (RM14). Round out your meal with classic Malaysian snacks like the lempeng pisang with a sweet sambal (RM7) and a variety of kuih, from seri muka to pulut hitam (RM0.80 each, or RM3 for four), washed down with a Thai-inspired milk tea (RM6) and the Iced Kathira, pandan-flavoured milk laced with basil seeds (RM8).

Do Eat With Us
8, Jalan PJU 5/20D, Kota Damansara, 47801 Petaling Jaya, Selangor. Open Saturday-Thursday, 830am-530pm.

Dar El Henchir, Oueslatia, Tunisia

The rustic life beckons at Dar Henchir, a bed-and-breakfast that's set in a vast plain of olive groves in Tunisia's commune of Oueslatia. With chickens, sheep and ducks to keep guests company, without a soul to be seen for miles amid this soothing calm, meals here end up being home-cooked affairs of local produce, casual and comforting.

ATAS Modern Malaysian Eatery, The RuMa Hotel & Residences

ATAS strives to elevate and enliven its cutting-edge cooking with uplifting, unmistakably Malaysian inflections. Churros come laced with subtle hints of smoked eel in the dough, but what makes this preparation memorable are the locally inspired accompaniments, ranging from grated coconut to egg-free whipped coconut jam (RM30); cured ocean trout is synergised with a sambal dressing, fresh ulam leaves, and puffed tapioca crackers that evoke crunchy salmon skin, the lusciousness of the trout buoyantly balanced with an understated sense of spice and raw, herbaceous invigoration (RM58).


ATAS' penchant for poultry results in a rewarding experience for customers, with charcoal oven-cooked main courses like dry-aged duck breast on a bed of Sarawakian Bario highland rice turned nearly glutinous, rounded out with full-flavoured liver parfait and nuances of roselle (RM118), and corn-fed chicken with sawtooth coriander, fried onions, and tapioca boba balls that supply a striking textural contrast to the meat (RM110).

Portions prove modest, so it's worth ordering a couple of side dishes - foraged fiddlehead ferns with dark soy and crispy shallots (RM28) and a fragrant sesame-spiked jasmine rice salad with chicken skin and spring onions (RM28) work perfectly for the Southeast Asian palate, a testament to the talents of ATAS' Vancouver-born executive chef Tyson Gee and his team.
