Launch of and Best Eats KL

Congratulations to the team behind for their Grand Launch at Twenty One Kitchen & Bar, Changkat Bukit Bintang recently! is an online restaurant reservations portal where KL-ites are given the convenience of making online reservation for the eateries that are in its line up of bookable restaurants.
Upon registration, you will be rewarded with a start up of 100 points and with more reservations made through the portal, you will be accumulating points which is convertable to cash vouchers redeemable at eateries. Quite a novel idea right?

Sure beats the below:

“Hello..can I book a table tonight?”
“Oh.. wait ahh..I call my manager..”


tooooooooooottttttt…. ” Dial tone.

Grr…. you growled as you punched the *redial* button.

Back to the night…

Simultaneously, the Best Eats KL Guidebook by Fay Khoo was launched that night.

Retailing at only RM23.00, it is available in all the local bookstores. I was given a copy during the Genji pig-out and was putting it to good use ever since.

My copy is dog-marked and potential food hunts circled!
For example, has anyone been to this Subash House of Thousand Thosais??

Flipping through its pages, it unearthed some really interesting eateries that I have not heard of before. Other than that, smart indexing and categorisation like below certainly eases usage.
ps: I find it really useful when friends called and asked for “where to eat?? I’m in PJ/ Klang, Bukit Bintang…” !

Another interesting feature; some celebrities sharing their preferred dining outlets.
Perfect for stalkers, one just have to hang around these restaurant/eateries & hopefully you’ll bump into them one day.

Free flow canapes and alcoholic drinks all night long. None of the guests were complaining; I was sure!

Lots of fun people and celebrities.

    Not unsurprisingly , we were and are never impressed by such an "ahead of our time" initiative , unless there is a real fine tuning and the participating establishments are top notched and really value for money
    …does KL have such quality outlets ?…and the booking website must be really user friendly and intuitive ( which we have grave doubts )
