Datuk Sulaiman’s Treasures

Found in a collective of streets in TTDI.

The TTDI area is home to numerous fanciful restaurants and cafes that serve lip-smacking treats of all kinds under the sun. However, on its own, the collection of Lorong Datuk Sulaiman streets host two rows of eateries that are not only elegant but also serve delightful dishes as well. In order to set you off, I’ve narrowed down 5 restaurants in the vicinity worth your immediate attention.

At Vin’s, expect to be served the most delicious Italian-Indian fare you’ll ever taste. The gastrobar does boast a well-stocked bar but excels when it comes to its food. The pasta and pizza come in various Indian cuisine flavours without losing their Italian flair. A reminder, be sure to try their pizza!

Opening hours:
Tuesday – Friday 4pm – 2am
Saturday 3pm – 2am
Sunday 3pm – 12am

This fusion darling is the brainchild of Chef Nikom Uatthong, or 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 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

Lorong Datuk Sulaiman

Lorong Datuk Sulaiman

Thursdvys (pronounced Thursdays) got the name from its founder, Hadri, when many significant events took place for him on the particular day. On a fine Thursday, he dreamt of his tooth and remembered a superstition saying that ‘someone older than you will pass away if one of your top teeth falls out in a dream.’ His fear became true 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 a Thursday.

Little Rimba

Lorong Datuk Sulaiman

My colleague Basir paid a visit to Little Rimba some time ago and had this to say:

“One of the latest addition 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.

Lorong Datuk Sulaiman

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 fun twist to the name such as Laksa Nyonya Samba Rimba, Uncle’s Assam Laksa, Lontongku Sayang, Pengat Durian, and many more.”

Opening hours:
Tuesday – Sunday 7.30am – 6.30pm
