Battery Acid Club

We went to Battery Acid Club. We had fried sweet potato fritters, miso espresso chicken, coffee and an affogato. We wrote about it. First of all though, it’s probably pertinent to mention that Battery Acid Club has evolved quite a bit since their debut late-2014. Their lofty initial goals remain largely unchanged (to foster a space for the exchange of …

J&D Espresso @ Pavilion Elite

What’s so elite about Pavilion Elite? Sure, you have COS (probably the best spot for basics at a relatively affordable price point though it’s just that slightly bit more expensive than other high street offerings to dissuade excessive impromptu splurges) but what else is there? The overwhelming majority of the occupants are the usual run-of-the-mill mall fillers. It’s like a strangely …

Tsubohachi Izakaya @ Publika

  Does anyone find Publika confusing? Yeah, I’ve frequented the place enough during the early days of Barfly when the RM10 pints of Tiger had more beer than water.

To be fair, Foodgazer doesn’t exist to …

Hanoi Food Guide : 5 Days of Foodgazing

This is, for all intents and purposes, a long-form article about my 5-ish days in Hanoi – although it could more accurately be described as a rambling travelogue told in chronological order that purports to be a Hanoi food guide. Do note that I tried less than half of the things I wanted to, and left with the knowledge that …

Penang Food Guide : A Foodgazer Compilation

Look, you can come to Penang for a myriad reasons (Penang Hill, the beaches, yadda yadda) but when I think of the state, the image that pops up is inextricable from what I deem to be its core: the wondrous and dizzying array of Penang food. To that end, we’ve compiled here some of our favourite spots in the great …

Craft Beer Guide

Remember, kids, it’s not alcoholism if it’s for a craft beer guide Why is craft beer so expensive? What does craft beer even mean? Are we at the point of peak craft beer? Look, I don’t know the answers to those questions. Or more accurately, I kind of do have some insight into them but would rather write a separate post to …
