With new eateries and bars popping up every other day, we’ve curated a list of places for you to hunt down this month. Here are the just-launched cafés and restaurants in Klang Valley for the month of October 2018.
Cureé (pronounced Ka-RAY) is a new Japanese restaurant in town, focusing on Hokkaido style curries. Their bowls of hearty goodness are perfect for hungry food hunters as they are jam-packed with generous portions of vegetables. Capsicums, brinjals and lady fingers are served with curry and grains here. Such dishes are popular in Hokkaido and are often times enjoyed during the winter season. If you find yourself here on a rainy day, you’re definitely in for a treat. For a creamy side, opt for some avocado. Then end your spicy meal with some ice cream in flavours like matcha and coffee.
Address: No.38, Jalan 1/77A, Changkat Thambi Dollah, Off Jalan Imbi, Kuala Lumpur

2. Hexgon Café
Salted egg fried chicken baos? Pure genius. This is just one of Hexgon’s greatest creations and it makes complete sense as the bao is able to completely soak the sweet-savoury flavours of the buttery salted egg yolk sauce. Find more yummy eats at this minimalist space, including chicken wings and drumsticks coated with house-seasoned spicy sauce and peanut flakes. And when you’re done, tuck in to their simple dessert done right: a classy chiffon cake topped with fresh berries and cream.
Hours: Wednesdays-Mondays: 11am-11pm, Closed on Tuesdays.

3. Ho Yeah Restaurant
With a restaurant name like “Ho Yeah”, one would expect leaving this place, saying those very words. With a pork-filled menu complete with char siew, siew yoke and honey pork ribs, we don’t see why not. Besides meat which has been cooked up Oriental-style, you’ll be able to savour duck, seafood, fried rice and noodles amongst other dishes. The meals at Ho Yeah are meant for sharing but as the restaurant slogan puts it, “Our portions are made for sharing, but you might not want to.”
