The Kitchen Goddess at Pavilion KL's Food Republic

Food Republic is a very nice food hall (foodcourt) located in Pavilion Mall in Kuala Lumpur. Lots of different food choices here from local dishes to Italian, Japanese, etc. But of course, when one visits Kuala Lumpur, one has to savor the local dishes.



DIY Hotpot Soup. You choose from a variety of seafood balls (fish, shrimp, lobster), tofu, vegetables, meat, then choose your soup base, add noodles if you still feel like it. It is fun to choose a lot of noms that will go into your soup but it can get quite expensive though.


Mee Goreng with Fried Pork. This is what I ordered and was surprised that the serving portion is good for sharing. It was good though but I prefer the mee goreng from the street food corner in Bukit Bintang.


Seafood Tom Yam. Wicked tasting tom yam but you need to have a bottle of water or some drink ready just in case you find it too 'hot' for you.


This dish looks similar to Bibimbap without the kimchi and it is a Malaysian version. I really can't remember the name but it is one of the popular Malaysian dishes.


Beef Rendang. My daughter can't decide what to order since there are literally tons of delicious choices around the food hall so I suggested Beef Rendang from Toast Box which proved to be a winner.


Here's a look at one of the food stall. What I noticed about the food choices at the Food Republic is that there's no two stalls selling the exact same dish and that makes it really hard especially if you are a first-timer diner there.

RECIPE: TKG's Pan-Grilled Maya-Maya With Calamansi Butter Sauce

I chanced upon some fresh-looking Maya-Maya being sold near my daughter's school today so I bought some. I don't really have a dish in mind when I bought it. Maybe fried, sinigang ... And upon checking the fridge and pantry (no more olive oil), I decided to marinate the fish in calamansi to remove the fishy taste. I pan-grilled the fish being careful not to burn it. Then I minced some garlic, cooked it in butter, added some salt and poured the sauce on top of the fish. And its ready to eat. And oh, I also steamed some cauliflower as a side-dish. Bon appetit!

RECIPE: TKG's Brownie Balls with Cointreau Infused Cranberries

We may still be quarantined inside our homes but that doesn't mean we have to let go of our love for food. And if there's something positive that happened in our new normal, I'd say that most people (including me) have discovered the simple joys of spending more time in the kitchen. Here's my take on a classic brownie recipe made special with Cointreau.
