Food, life, and fun in my "kampung,"(village), KL (Kuala Lumpur). Did I mention "food?"

Max's Kitchen and Wines

By Allan Yap & Nigel A. Skelchy

In a rather non-descript setting of one of the hottest food areas in town, namely, Tengkat Tong Shin, Max opened his restaurant, eponymously named, Max's Kitchen & Wines.

The Floggers were, as Allan remarked later, "very punctual." Allan and I were very pleased that we were able to get there just 15 minutes tardy, when in actual fact, everyone had arrived, were seated and had ordered. These people take their food seriously!

Wmw and her date, ipoh-mali, boo-licious and splashie boy, paprika and partner, lyrical lemongrass and bald eagle, joe and N, sooyin, and M had obviously almost nested by the time Allan and I sauntered in. You know how cats and dogs circle a resting place, scratch at it, and then wiggle their bums to settle in? And well, it all takes a moment or two? Well, that is exactly how everyone looked. Settled. And ready to get on with the important business of savouring - not just eating - the food.

Joe, Bald Eagle, wmw, and ipoh mali snapping away - scenes like this are very very common and are a cardinal sign of blogger behaviour in their natural habitat - restaurants and food joints
Yabbies = yummy
Seared tuna with baby octopus - yum meee!
Grilled Tuna
Wagyu Beef cooked in Shiraz - rich, buttery tender, and mushrooms :-)
Lamb Cutlets - Gorgeous. Try!
duck! :-)
sooyin :-) - Who photographs the photographer? ;-)
Strawberry Cataiffi (I think that's how it's spelt)
Chocolate Souffle
White Chocolate Tart
Interesting drink - can't remember what it was
ipoh mali TASTING said forgotten drink! :-)
It's been sometime since we went so really, I can't remember all the details. But I do remember one thing very clearly. I left feeling like we must spread the word and bring friends and family.
