Bled Island Cafe @ Slovenia

Bled Island is one of Slovenia's most iconic destinations, set on a placid, pristine lake, with the Church of the Assumption rising over the island's trees. Take a 'pletna' boat to this picturesque island, climb the 99 stone steps to the top of the slope, and reward yourself with a local Lasko beer, bearing hints of citrus fruits and chestnuts, at a charming cafe beside the church.

Broke Boys Kitchen: Butter Chicken Deliveries

By Aiman Azri


Delivering lunch and dinner on a budget, Broke Boys Kitchen offers richly flavoursome buttermilk chicken for RM6.50 per set. The meat is crisply tender, complemented with a little lettuce and chillies, while the rice comes freshly sprinkled with fragrant sesame seeds, but the star is the sauce, creamy but not cloying. 

Service is available primarily in Kota Damansara, with other areas potentially covered by special request; orders should typically be placed at least a day in advance, especially for lunch. 

A minimum of five servings may be necessary per order - note that there could be a RM5 delivery fee too. 

The kitchen also now serves its version of the sweet-fried General Tso's Chicken.

Gajaa At 8 @ Bangsar

Gajaa At 8 is an intriguing new locale for fans of Indian fare; helmed partly by Malaysian family members of Keralan ancestry, the restaurant shines a spotlight on specialities from the southwestern Indian coastal state. Gajaa At 8's cooks are also from Kerala, so there's an assurance of authenticity in their offerings, served in a lovely Bangsar bungalow.

Traditional seafood recipes like the lightly tangy, mango-infused Alleppey Fish Curry (RM38) and the Prawn Moilee, rich in coconut milk (RM42), might be the ideal introduction to this destination. But our true guilty pleasures here are the comfort carbs - the potato mappas, a Keralan meat-free stew (RM15), and the dal tadka (RM14) prove indulgently, delightfully creamy. Round out this capably executed meal with chicken biryani prepared with a flavoursome Keralan spice mix (RM35).

The Falooda (RM20) is a fun dessert, bringing together ice cream with jelly, sweet basil seeds, vermicelli, nuts and more for a satisfactory end to the Gajaa At 8 experience. Check out the lassi too, which come in playful flavours such watermelon or rose (RM16 each).

While Gajaa At 8's bar only offers beer for now, we're looking forward to its launch within a few weeks of Whiskeypedia, which promises quality Indian whiskies.
