Chef Darren Teoh of Dewahkan takes his own spin on fine dining with a collection of only fresh local produce as his show stoppers; a delicious array of well cooked and beautifully garnished meals await anybody who wishes to try out his exquisite recipes which are becoming a hit in the KL region. There are also quite a few serviced apartments in Kuala Lumpur such as the Ascott Kuala Lumpur that are close by to these venues; you could easily opt for a meal at one of these eateries if you happen to be putting up in the area.
Next on the list is succulent pork; Iberico, a quaint restaurant in Damansara, dedicates its entire menu to the infamous Spanish Black Pig. A veteran in pork, the restaurant has set off a trend in Kuala Lumpur where many consumers are now eager to try out the mouth-watering pork gastronomies created by this daring restaurant. Make sure you try this one out if you love your pork. Grilled food is also gaining popularity these days with many of the consumer market shifting to grill themed restaurants where succulent meats and fish are served alongside generous side dishes. These restaurants and small eateries can be found almost anywhere. Bringing up the rear are the desserts served at KL’s infamous Soft Serve parlours that are most probably your best choice for dessert if you are staying in the city.

Restaurants in Maldives – A treat for the senses!

The local cuisine, much like all other aspects of Maldivian life, is centered heavily around the ocean. The bountiful seas that surround the islands are brimming with marine life, which makes for a thriving fishing industry. Commonly found fish like skipjack tuna, yellowfin tuna, bigeye scad, wahoo and mahi-mahi make their way to dining tables all across the country and are even exported. Fish dishes prepared with local spices and flavours also feature on every restaurant menu. Many local preparations also incorporate coconut that grows freely along the shores. Maldivian food is heavily influenced by Sri Lankan and South Indian as well as Arabic and Oriental cuisines.

Restaurants in the Maldives go beyond delectable food, many apply an awe inspiring theme and aim to create a unique ambience. Many hotels have bars and restaurants that offer overwater dining experiences and barbeques on the beach. A few even have underwater restaurants.
