6 new restaurants and cafes to check out in April 2019

Malaysia welcomes Hai Di Lao’s first outpost in Sunway Pyramid late March 2019 and it has already garnered the attention of ardent foodies in town. This famous hot pot restaurant chain from China has been all the rage in Singapore for years now and is known for drawing ridiculously large crowds queuing for hours just to have a taste of its signature soups and hand-pulled noodles. Hai Di Lao will also be opening its second outlet in Pavilion KL sometime this year.

As we wait for the frenzy to cool down a little bit so that you can enjoy its spicy Sichuan pot without needing to queue for hours, here are some of the latest restaurants and cafes in Kuala Lumpur to check out this month – including one in Damansara Heights that has the best beer pong setting.

1. Pause Cafe

Pause Café is tucked in the quaint artsy neighbourhood of Kampung Attap. The menu focuses on comfort food like its signature carbonara, hua diao chicken with garlic and chilies, as well as a rice dish with pork lard, pork mince and onsen egg. A standout drink in its beverage menu is the fragrant Yin Yang Taichi, which is a mix of espresso and red tea, with frothed milk.

2. Snitch by The Thieves

Everything from Melbourne-style brunches to laksa and pho can be found at here at Snitch by The Thieves. Unlike the glasshouse setting in APW, this new outpost opened by the boys behind Breakfast Thieves is more vibrant with colourful splashes of bright hues all over the restaurant, and an alfresco area overlooking the boulevard. Its repertoire maintains Breakfast Thieves’ signature all-day breakfasts like potato hash with beetroot citrus-cured salmon and huevos rancheros with beef chorizo. If you’re craving for something Asian, try the char koay teow or brown rice bowls with a choice of salted egg chicken or soy-glazed salmon.

6. Hai Di Lao

Hai Di Lao has finally opened in Sunway Pyramid after months of waiting.

Enjoy the hotpot with a slew of ingredients and its signature hand-pulled noodles — as well as a sauce bar with chillies, meat mince, peanuts, sesame, garlic and more for you to concoct your own dipping renditions according to your preferences.
