This fusion darling is the brainchild of Chef Nikom Uatthong, better known as Chef Kom.

According to K2, the Le Cordon Bleu trained chef “constantly seeks new ideas to create new fusion dishes, combining his Thai background with new flavours inspired by countries he’s travelled.

“Every dish is unique in its own way, familiar yet with a touch of something extra, something uniquely K2. The menu caters for all budget types from All Day Individual Sets from RM15 to special dishes that is good for sharing in a group.”

Opening hours:
Tuesday-Sunday: 8am-2.30pm; 6pm-9.30pm

Thursdvys (pronounced Thursdays) got its name from its founder, Hadri, in memory of a number of significant events he experienced on that particular day.

On a fine Thursday, he dreamt of his tooth and remembered a superstition that “someone older than you will pass away if one of your top teeth falls out in a dream”.

His fears were realised when his father who had been supportive of his dream to open a coffee shop, fell ill and passed away three weeks later. It was on a Thursday.

Little Rimba

Uppre’s writer Basir paid a visit to Little Rimba some time ago and had this to say: “One of the latest additions in the neighbourhood is Rimba & Rusa’s little sister — Little Rimba. Well, despite being the new kid on the block, the restaurant has already garnered quite a large following, especially during lunch hour.

“Little Rimba’s menu is not as extensive as its elder sister’s since the restaurant is relatively new. Nonetheless, Little Rimba boasts a selection of all-day dining — highlighting Malaysian favourites that come with a fun twist to names such as Laksa Nyonya Samba Rimba, Uncle’s Assam Laksa, Lontongku Sayang, Pengat Durian, and many more.”
