On this month’s roundup of new places to eat in KL: Chef Darren Chin opens a second restaurant, Singapore’s one Michelin-starred Saint Pierre opens in Malaysia, the first rooftop cafe in the city and more

1. Bref by Darren Chin

Bref is French for "brief" and is Chef Darren Chin's "vision of a contemporary Parisian bistro". The menu is still very much French, his flair for cooking is still very much Darren Chin-esque but the setting is more casual and less of the air of a fine dining setting.

3. Siti Li Dining Room

One of our favourite spots for classic Malay favourites and local delights has finally reopened after a short disappearance from the scene. To our delight, they have relocated to a new cosier spot next to The Bread Shop. From Laksa Sarawak to cekodok pisang, be prepared for a very happy Malaysian stomach.

Defining themselves as a place that serves all-day comfort food, Little Rimba is no doubt an Instagram-worthy cafe in a quiet corner of TTDI. However, be warned that service might be a tad slow depending on the crowd.

5. Atap Rooftop Cafe

For something a bit more casual with a whole dollop of sinful indulgence, head to Atap Rooftop Cafe where they serve amazing HSP (halal snack pack or essentially halal-certified kebab meat mixed with chips and different kinds of sauces) as claimed by a lot of satisfied diners. The cafe comes with a decent view and makes for an interesting mini adventure different from the usual #cafehopping. Fun fact: Atap Rooftop Cafe is the brainchild of YouTuber and actor Sean Lee and his friend, Hatta.
