Satay: For satay KL’s A-listers love, head to EQ’s Nipah restaurant. The Malaysian version of these dishes popular across Southeast Asia features marinated skewers of beef, lamb or chicken. Satay is always a crowd-pleaser; this is because satay sellers interlace each stick of satay with both fatty and sinewy meat. The result? The fat is delectably seared over charcoal flames into the meat and the spices.
CELESTIAL TREASURES FROM EQ KUALA LUMPUR
Jom Makan Life – As far as I’m concerned, old is still gold when it comes to mooncakes. While the local Mid-Autumn Festival market is fixated on packaging, the sweet-toothed glutton in me reckon the traditional speciality should taste as good, if not better than an impressive-looking box.
Hence, I was pleased as punch when the Pure Lotus Double Yolk mooncake from EQ Kuala Lumpur ticked all the right boxes at first bite.

The sweetness was to my personal liking too, offset by the savouriness of salted egg yolks.
