Lively burger joints such as MyBurgerLab (Sea Park, Petaling Jaya) and Burger Junkyard (Kota Damansara) prove immensely popular among KL’s urban youths, and Burgertory in Subang Jaya is no exception to the rule. Located on the first floor (above Guardian Pharmacy), Burgertory offers a wide array of delightfully sinful pork, beef and vegetarian burgers – all of which are handmade of course.
Picking a favourite from Burgertory's menu is a bit of a daunting task, but the Swine Bacon and Cheese burger has to be one of the must-tries. The thick 100% premium pork patty is close to perfection in terms of juiciness and taste, whilst the two strips of bacon and slice melted of cheddar cheese intensify both the flavour and the calorie count.

Located just outside Empire Shopping Gallery, Jibby & Co is a two-storey establishment with a very distinctive architectural design, with its exterior strongly resembles that of a greenhouse. Entering this restaurant, diners are greeted with light bulbs hanging from the high ceiling, colourful potted plants on communal tables and massive glass windows providing plenty of natural light.
Perfect for weekend brunches with the family, we recommend Chic Breakie, a flavourful dish which consists of poached eggs, crispy hash browns, smoked salmon, salmon roe, corn, zucchini and hollandaise sauce. Diners with a bigger appetite will revel in the Three Layer Lasagna, a hefty portion of beef, mushroom, Roma tomatoes, and basil sauce.

Serving luxury hotel-worthy Western dishes at affordable prices, FIQ's Gastronomy definitely lives up to its acronym: Food, Innovation, and Quality. There are ample parking spaces in the restaurant’s vicinity while its casual decor of wooden chairs, tables and colourful throw pillows exudes a cosy and tranquil ambience.
Expertly prepared in an open kitchen area, FIQ's Gastronomy serves tantalising dishes such as spinach risotto with sous vide chicken, roasted potato gnocchi with mushrooms, and five-hour braised short ribs. The pastas are also made on-site, and we recommend the tagliatelle with duck confit, basil-laced melted butter and vegetables for its exceptional taste and picture-perfect presentation. FIQ’s Gastronomy also offers extensive dessert choices such as baked Alaska, raspberry granite, and pumpkin bread pudding. Our best pick, though, is S'mores (RM10+), a concoction of chewy marshmallows, crackers, hazelnuts & gooey chocolate ganache.

The Carpenter’s Daughter is bakery-cum-cafe that offers a wide array of organic breads, freshly baked cakes and pastries, with a sufficient Western menu. Ordering a plateful of bread is a common sight in The Carpenter’s Daughter, as it gives diners the chance to sample a good range of focaccia, ciabatta, batard, sourdough, whole wheat and seven-grain.
Completely organic with no additives or preservatives, the dough is hand shaped in small batches, while the longer fermentation time produces a more intense taste and texture. We also recommend complementing the bread platter with a side of shepherd’s pie or beef Bolognese (with homemade tomato sauce). For the early birds, The Carpenter's Daughter also offers a breakfast menu of Eggs Benedict, French toast, and omelette until 11:30.

Grand Imperial is a classy Chinese restaurant which serves quality dim sum (bite-sized dishes served in small steamer baskets) and Cantonese cuisine to a more upscale clientele. Located in The 19 USJ City Mall, this restaurant has a similar decor to its predecessors in Sri Hartamas and Bangsar. With its carpeted floors and cushioned seats, Grand Imperial really does do well to exude a luxurious ambience. Diners who prefer a more intimate setting can also opt for a separate dining room.
Some of our recommendations from their dim sum menu include siu mai (pork dumplings) with prawns, deep-fried bean curd skin roll, and the tantalising cha siu (barbecue-pork) bun. The crispy roast pork and fine wanton egg noodles (served with marbled US sirloin beef slices) are definite must-tries in Grand Imperial as well.
