Donkey & Crow Irish Pub @ TREC KL

Irish eyes are smiling at Donkey & Crow, a friendly pub where Dublin's delicacies take centre stage, with a supporting boost from other parts of the UK - expect braised lamb stew, corned beef & cabbage in Guinness, & bangers with champ & beans.

The kitchen-baked steak-&-kidney pie surfaces in a princely portion that two can share (RM45; ideal if you relish kidneys - some of us regard it as rank), while the Dublin coddle is a dish James Joyce might have loved, a casserole brimming with boiled coarse pork sausage meat, ham, potatoes & onions (RM38; pricey, considering it feels pretty home-made & basic, like Mom's comfort food). Enjoy while an eclectic mishmash of 1980s-90s music videos from WIlson Phillips & Culture Club plays on the monitors.

Almaz by Momo @ Mall of the Emirates, Dubai

This intensely atmospheric establishment transports customers to another world beyond its confines in one of Dubai's gargantuan malls; Almaz tackles North African cuisine - delicious dishes like pan-fried chicken liver with pomegranate sauce (order it!), pigeon pastilla flavoured with almonds & cinnamon (order it too!) & couscous with a mixed meat platter of roasted lamb shoulder, charcoal chicken & merguez sausage, plus semolina & vegetable broth (order everything!). Alas, alcohol is verboten, so customers must make do with mocktails that blend, say, pomegranates with lychee, raspberries & rose water.

Wayne's & Byhalf Cafe @ Sri Petaling

Wayne's is rooted in family & friends: The couple who run this cafe named it after their toddler son, & they enlisted their chum - a retired chef who reputedly spent close to 50 years professionally cooking, including at what was once KL's esteemed Merlin Hotel - to help out with recipes like roast pork with apple & brown sauce, roasted potatoes & vegetables (RM25) & pork chops & fried egg in a steamed rice bowl (RM17). Wayne's remains a fledgling business that's still finding its footing, & there may be consistency issues with its food, but its team is willing to take note of feedback, which leaves us with some cause for optimism.

Wayne's Cafe
10 Jalan Radin Bagus 6, Sri Petaling, Kuala Lumpur. Daily, 10am-10pm. Tel: 03-9055-3362

Byhalf stands for something pretty cool - By Having A Little Faith. The cafe offers several unique signature dishes, including a 'red pesto' pasta in a striking house-made sauce blended with beetroot, garlic & sunflower seeds, as well as honey-glazed grilled chicken that's bathed in an aromatic lavender marinade. The flavours work reasonably well, but the textures may disappoint in an ironic contrast - for this visit earlier this year, the pasta proved too soft, while the chicken was a tad too tough.
