Did you hear the latest SOP? Inter-district travel has opened up, which means we have more options for dining out (while continuing to dine-in as much as we can to #staysafe). This month, our Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner series includes a bonus recommendation for drinks. Take a look below:
The Butter Pantry is an all new cafe brought to you by the good folks behind That Last Bite, one of our favourite local bakers. Located in Ampang, the cafe serves up all That Last Bite’s familiar desserts with new items like this yummy Smoked Salmon & Mushroom Quiche. They’re quite the coffee crowd too, so look out for a selection of caffeinated refreshments on the menu. The cafe is open daily from 9am to 7pm. To find it easily, Waze to Hanwoori Ampang and walk up to the second floor.

We loved the Thai Food at My Elephant, and we’re sad to hear that the chain of restaurants closed down after taking hard hits from the COVID-19 pandemic. Owner Patrick Cheng Yee is keeping the faith, not through asking for donations, but with the sale of packet meals to recreate some of My Elephant’s familiar favourites at home. Here’s what you can get:
1. Pork Burger Patties :RM24.50 per packet of 500grams (5 pieces)
2. Lemongrass Chicken: RM16 per packet of 500grams
3. Japanese Chasu: RM20 per packet of 200 grams
Orders above RM100 have no delivery charge within Klang Valley.

Frank’s Bar is speakeasy-style watering hole in Avenue K, inspired by Frank Sinatra. What’s really interesting is that the bar uses a new-age ageing method for its barreled alcohol: sound waves. Headphones are placed on either side of the barrel, playing Sinatra songs between 110 to 200 bpm for four hours a day, every day for two weeks. Frank’s recommendation off the cocktail menu right now is the man Trap mad with Rémy Martin V.S.O.P, Dom Benedictine Liquer, Chartreuse green, dipped in honey and topped with walnut bitters, and if you’re wondering, aged to trap music. The bar is open daily from 4pm to 10pm.
