K3K Benta Kaya, 3 Two Square.

As extracted from ericyong77.com

One of my favourite places to go to chill out, whenever I am at 3 Two Square - would be at K3K Benta Kaya, located right next to Pappa Rich. =)

It has quite a simple setting, although I do think they should change their chairs though LOL.

Anyways, this is their WIFI password. =P

The nasi lemak ayam. Simple and just nice.

Cham ais, anyone?

icook Italian Gastronomia @ Dataran 3 Two Square

**Photos taken with iPhone 3GS
On a lazy Saturday afternoon, we stepped into an empty restaurant. Looking around, puzzled, I glanced at my watch – 4.30pm.
Oh my, we missed our lunch time. It was their break interval and when we were just about to turn out, Chef Nicola popped in front of us, assuring there’s still food for us as he’s the owner cum chef :)
Well assured by Chef Nicola, he asked us not to worry as we’ll be in good hands. We’re anticipating for authentic & well-executed Italian dishes then!
A cosy cafe with an attentive chef and it feels like we booked the whole place.
Daily dose of caffeine on a rainy day :)
Cafe Latte & Cappuccino

“I like what you ordered”, say Chef Nicola
Complimentary House Bread with Olive oil + Vinegar dips
Serving Italian Bread the Malaysian way? – in a dim sum steamer! Love the bread was soft and addictive ;)
Aglio Olio with Mushroom
The perfect non-fancy pasta that I always feel satisfied with.
Seafood Marinara Risotto
Loaded with generous amount of fresh seafoods, it was the first time having this again after 2 years! It really did bring back fond memories of Cafe Uno.

There you go. You can drop by for coffee or a quick Italian fix like me on a lazy weekend.
I’m sorry as this is a lazy post. Lazy to bring camera out that day too :P

icook Italian Gastronomia

As extracted from Eat Drink KL.


In the few years that he's been in KL, chef Nicola Carradori hasn't stayed still. When we first encountered him, he was the kitchen maestro at Delucca. Earlier this year, we saw him guiding Pavilion's Markethall. And now, he's running "icook," his own restaurant in Petaling Jaya.


Authentic, well-executed Italian dishes can be expected here. The house-made bread, grilled with rosemary & generously topped with sauteed chicken liver, capers & red onions, is a fitting representative of the food _ simple stuff, featuring fresh, robust flavors.


Spaghetti with tuna & olives. Prices should please PJ's crowds _ this spaghetti costs RM18.90+. Produce from the ocean is a cornerstone of icook's menu; other carb-laden choices here include seafood risotto & seafood penne.


Chef Nicola's foremost recommendation might seem surprising: roast chicken. But it's a pleasure _ not amazing, but nearly impossible to criticize. Much like this restaurant, really.


Wine will be available soon, once icook secures a liquor license. For now, there's beer.


All in all, it's a lively place, well worth visiting, with chef Nicola amiably strolling around & chatting with customers. He plans to offer cooking classes by next month, so this place could become quite a gastronomic hot spot soon.
