Valentine Restaurant Search

Every year we will have a surge of searching for food on Valentine day itself (Malaysians are certainly very last minute people, aren't we?). Anyway way, there are quite a number of people who start looking a week ahead, as you can see clearly in the graph.

So, what places are they searching for? (it's good reference for birthday, anniversary, or the next Valentine). The top 5 places goes to:
  1. Shogun, Japanese Buffet @ One Utama, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  2. Saisaki Japanese Buffet @ Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang, Kuala Lumpur
  3. Tamarind Springs @ Taman TAR, Ampang, Selangor
  4. Look Out Point @ Kompleks Pelancongan Menara Tinjau, Jalan Ampang-Hulu Langat, Ampang, Selangor
  5. The Cave @ SS2, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
Malaysia still like their Japanese buffet, as this had been the trend for the last 5 years. Tamarind Springs is coming up strong as a decent competitor. Look Out Point offer nice night view, but the quality of food is questionable. As of The Cave, I'm afraid it is no longer there (or under renovation?).

Other noticeable "romantic" venue includes
Nadeje Patisserie Cafe is definitely the clear winner in Melaka, as they serve absolutely delicious Milk Crepe (western layer cakes) made by a Japanese lady. It's a surprise to me that quite a number of "traditional" Chinese restaurants pop up, but I guess there are still a big market for this group of food lovers. Besides that, we have bar in the sky, lifestyle cafe, Balinese food, Japanese, Italian, and what not.

Until the next food field study, enjoy!
