5 Top Restaurants & Cafes in KL - WeChat iPick Food Review Campaign

Greetings dear readers! ❣

Would you love to know where to amuse your hubby and family for an exquisite festive this weekend?

Let me guide you to the top 5 Restaurants and Cafes I have been to which I feel extremely satisfied with the food and beverages plus fantastic service and fair price.

1) Magnum Cafe Kuala Lumpur

First and foremost, I'm going to take to you on an ice cream adventure, 'Make My Magnum!' 

Magnum cafe is now in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia! The first-ever Magnum cafe in Malaysia is located on the newly revamped 3rd floor, South Court of Mid Valley Megamall, not far away from the Golden Screen Cinemas (GSC). It is officially opened on Friday the 14th of November 2014. 

What is so special about this Magnum cafe until dessert lovers go gaga from the moment it was opened until today? What makes a difference between grabbing a Magnum ice cream over the hypermarkets and having the ice cream at the cafe? 

The reason is, it is more than ice cream you bought in the hypermarkets. The highlights are when you have the privileged to customize your own Magnum ice cream with delicious toppings, 'Make My Magnum'. 

You will have the choice upon entering the cafe whether to dine in or take away your customize Magnum ice cream. The cafe has two floors. The first floor (top floor) is for those who favour having a meal besides ice cream which Magnum cafe also offers a wide array of selections from pasta, soup and snacks. They are also more seats upstairs compared to the second floor. 

Basically, there are 4 steps involved which are coating, topping, drizzling and setting in customizing your own Magnum ice cream which is the centre attraction to the diners. 

The coating will be based on your personal favourite, classic vanilla or chocolate brownie flavour. The toppings vary from almonds, pistachio, marshmallows, popcorn, chilli flakes, blackcurrant pastilles, potato chips, chocolate chip cookies, dark chocolate pearls, white choco crunch pearls, goji berries, rose petals, freeze-dried raspberries and dried mango.

Next, choose to drizzle your Magnum ice cream with either white or dark chocolate to fill up the look for your ice cream. Then, give yourself 2 minutes for your ice cream to set into shape with the white or dark chocolate drizzle. Finally, the perfect moment is to indulge in your customised own Magnum ice cream after patiently waiting for the whole process from queuing until getting your first bite of your special made Magnum!

Price-wise, 'Make My Magnum' ice cream starts from RM 9.90. These are examples of certain menus that Magnum cafe showcases for you.

Based on others' experiences and reviews, the first floor is only for those who have a meal and ice cream. If you opt to buy only ice creams, you have to take away, no dining. 

The queue is completely long, especially on weekends and public holidays. Patience is needed to get your customized Magnum. You can try your luck via the entrance located upstairs because the queue is usually shorter than the second floor. 

The hype still continues, so try your luck and be patients to give it a go for your DIY Magnum ice cream!

Enjoy it, Indulge in it, Embrace it.

Haven't heard of Tous les Jours? If never, now you have. Welcome to Tous les Jours, the French-Asian Bakery-a South Korean bakery franchise owned by CJ Foodville. This amazing Authentic Bakery is now in Malaysia. It has been in Malaysia in June 2013 and that was the first beautiful store that you can see now in Wolo Bukit Bintang, the heart of Kuala Lumpur.

Tous les Jours (TLJ) (pronounced as Too-Leh-Joo) means every day in French (all the days). It was established in South Korea in 1997, began franchise licensing a year after that to the public. The company introduced its reputable "cafe-style bakery business model" in January 2003.

Henceforth, TLJ spread its wings to the United States and opened its first store in April 2004 which now have 27 outlets in the US from the west coast to the east coast. Following its successful steps in the US, TLJ spreads its business to other Asian countries such as China, Vietnam, Philippines, Cambodia, Indonesia, and Malaysia.

It opens daily from 9 am to 11 pm. Talking about price, the quality is worth the price. Based on personal experience and other reviews, TLJ at Wolo Bukit Bintang is by far the best. It is a 2 storey-floor and the ambience is really welcoming. Just love the smells of tempting bakery goods and one word, you will love it!

Give it a try, sure you will love it and don't forget to bring your loved ones and share the sweet moments together!

4) Contango Restaurant, The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur

I'm really excited to share with all of you the tasty desserts I and my hubby tried twice for events at The Majestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur. I can't help myself just to think and write about it! Oh, it is so yummy!!

The buffet dinner was great and the desserts were absolutely amazing. I would say that the desserts would blow you away (if you are a dessert fan). They have many desserts. We literally tried almost all of them. They usually change their range of desserts. You can check with them first before you book for lunch or dinner.

The buffet line has many selections including local, Indian, Japanese and Western cuisine. They have also oysters and all in all it is an absolutely amazing experience with fantastic ambience, setting, quality and service.

The staffs are friendly and we definitely enjoy our moments at Contango. It is a perfect place to celebrate your anniversary or your loved ones' birthday celebration. Again, 5 stars for the desserts! 




Little trivia. Hotel Majestic is a 5-star historical hotel located near Kuala Lumpur Railway Station. The beautiful hotel has 51 rooms. It was built in 1932, closed in 1984 and was resumed operation 28 years later as it was refurbished and a new block was added. It is one of the YTL Classic Hotels. Overall, I would recommend this is one of the classic hotels you should visit, dine-in and stay. Cheers!

5) Black Canyon Restaurant, The Summit USJ

If you have not heard about Black Canyon (BC) Restaurant, your taste bud just miss the taste of deliciousness! Based on my personal experience and friends, their food and beverages are absolutely great. I would highly recommend the BC in The Summit USJ, Subang Jaya. Their service is very good. The price is reasonable as well. You wouldn't want great dine-in but terrible service and high ceiling price, right?

Hence, if you are looking for a new restaurant that you want to indulge in and has a wonderful service that is worth your time and penny, this is one of the best restaurants I would recommend. It will for sure make you and your tummy happy. As well as your partner and family! =)

Here is some top mouthwatering menu that you can try in BC!

Gourmet and Fusion Food
*Fusilli in Spicy Chicken Tom Yum Soup
*"Pad Kra Praw" Minced Chicken & Hot Basil with Fried Egg & Rice
*Garlic Stir-Fried Rice with BBQ Chicken
*Spicy Carrot Salad (Som Tum)
*Canyon" Fried Chicken

Gourmet Beverages
*Mocha Glacier
*Blueberry Delight
*Strawberry Delight
*Iced Fresh Milk
*Blended Iced Green Tea (with milk)

Ice Cream
*Panda Smile

These are just the tops ones based on my personal review. They have a great deal of toothsome food and beverages. Treat someone you love and your family and hopefully, they will love it! ❤
