Sora @ Empire Shopping Gallery, Subang Jaya

Hojicha hounds, Sora might fit you to a 'tea' - this winsome little cafe is an unforeseen portrait of Zen in Subang's key mall, offering the likes of smooth Uji matcha cold brews gently flavoured with peach (RM10) & frothy-roasty hojicha hot lattes (RM12). If you have time to linger, traditional ceremony-style tea is also available, crafted with 'chasen' bamboo whisks & served with preserved apricots for balance (RM16). Pair perhaps with a slice of green-tea-&-sesame cake (RM15). The Japanese influence extends to the coffee, with beans from KL-based Japanese roaster Kato-san. Look for Sora's neon bird.

Brasaria @ Jaya One

Look for the colourful patchwork llama & bid 'buen provecho' to Brasaria, which tackles Peruvian-inspired pollo a la Brasa - rotisserie chicken, convincingly juicy & confidently marinated, fully flavoursome on its own but even more enjoyable with house-made condiments like the classic aji pepper green sauce. On its own, a quarter roast costs RM13.50, half is RM24.40 & a whole is RM47.70; customers can combine the chicken with sides, salads & beverages in set meals for optimum value.

Brasaria goes the distance to make the experience distinctive via South American-themed complements like yellow rice with raisins; grilled sweet potatoes, pineapples & plantain; & charred corn - even the coleslaw, mashed potatoes & beetroot salad convey a pleasant zing. The Klang Valley's roast chicken scene just got tastier, fortuitously in time for the Year of the Rooster.

Mlinica @ Mostar, Bosnia-Herzegovina

Battered fried calf brains come in a bit too mushy & under-cooked at Mlinica restaurant, making them very much an acquired taste, especially for the squeamish - but at least the view here is spectacular, overlooking the Ottoman bridge by the Neretva river that flows through Bosnia-Herzegovina's lovely cultural capital of Mostar.

Oishii Onigiri & Laksa Beras Food Trucks

Roaming Damansara Heights, Ampang, Petaling Jaya & beyond, this Japanese food truck offers everything from takoyaki to bentos & donburi, but true to its name, it's chief offering is onigiri. You'll find at least four types of rice balls at any given time here, with fillings that range from salmon, eel, scallops, sesame chicken & crab sticks to mashed potatoes, sweet corn & egg mayo. We tried the ebiko, filled with lots of crunchy shrimp roe (RM4 for one, RM10 for three). The tamago mentai might also be worth investigating if you ever spot this bright-coloured vehicle - soft, warm omelette strips, cooked to order, topped with a creamy layer of intensely savoury pollock roe (RM6.90).

Scratch that itch for a lightly tangy, aromatic assam laksa, served fresh & hot for only RM4.50, at the Laksa Beras food truck, parked beside Menara Binjai, a short stroll from the Ampang Park LRT station, operating most weekdays, 4pm through 8pm.
