Mission: To respond thoughtfully and responsibly to my experiences of drinking and dining at restaurants with regard to the quality, service, preparation, presentation and overall experience received thereat. The standpoint is one who respects the crafts of the chef and sommelier and who seeks to understand their choices in the kitchen and cellar and grow in knowledge. In this, I will seek to be fair, reasoned, direct and constructive and aim to keep my ego in check on our mutual journeys through the worlds of food and wine.

Christmas lunch at Makan Palace, Doubletree
Was a buffet of Malay, Indian, Chinese and Italian but with the added Turkey and Lamb main. Bit rojak, but it seemed to work. Highlights were the Roti Canai and dhall, Waldorf apple salad and the Christmas pudding washed down with Teh Tarik. Turkey was dry, stuffing had no taste, lamb was okay and the gravy brought it all together. Christmas meatball sauce was very good, all rich and brown and soaked up by the bread and butter. Still no better meal in the world than bread and gravy!!
