This is a fantastic website full of colourful, sumptuous and tempting pictures! The write ups are thorough, and accurate! These authors obviously take their blog seriously, put serious time into it and provide a value added service to foodies/vactioners in Malaysia!! Why shouldn't this website win? Really?

The Yum List blogs are amazing!!! There are photos displaying the foods, which make it much more tempting. The food descriptions are very detailed as is the information on the restaurant/eatery. For anyone visiting Malaysia this blog would be so helpful - no nasty surprises!

The blog sure has lots of lovely pics and information. What I adored about it was that there is just so much of Malaysia and a little more to let others get an idea when they visit Malaysia. This is definately a 5 Star blog!!

This blog is an outstanding resource for expats of Kuala Lumpur. It provides excellent reviews and suggestions for local eateries. The amount of choices in restaurants we have here in KL can be overwhelming, so this blog breaks it down into what's good, what the prices are, and where the restaurants are located. The photos are helpful too! It's the best!!

I am truly indebted to the links as well as the reviews which we get on The Yum List. They have made many special moments very very special. The reviews and details are absolutely genuine and fantastic. If it not had been for the lovely suggestions by Monica, we would have missed at least half of the amazing places to eat or events etc. A personal vote of thanks to her.

Lisa Mangelsdorf
04:21 AM November 21, 2012

I love the Yum List! Monica adds new things all the time, including tips on where to stay. She has a balance of fine dining and just plain old good food! When trying to decide where to go out to eat as a family even my kids say "Mom - Check the Yum List!" You should too!

The Yum List is without doubt the best blog for Expats. Not only is the blog colourful and easy to read and navigate, the quality of the photos and the posts is top class. It is also updated very regularly, and anything expats might seek (spas, hotels, restaurants) are covered in equal measure. It is the first place I personally would come for food info, and I am an expat! Proof right there :)

Gulshan
06:48 AM November 22, 2012

Fantastic Blog. The only reason I am giving it a Four stars instead of 5 stars is simply because more restaurants, hotels and spas should invite them over to do assessments and reviews. I find their candid reviews on service quality and overall standards world-class minus all the mollycoddling that we see from so many similar blogs. Recommended !

We love this site! We use it to find all the latest and greatest restaurants in KL. It's spot on. So many of The Yum List restaurants have now become our favorites in KL.

Lisa Nazim
10:48 AM November 26, 2012

This is a great blog. Congrats to Monica Tindall! I have armed myself with two things this year, to get myself out of my usual restaurants close to home, and discover new areas in KL. This blog The Yum List and my GPS. With these two you can get out of your comfort zone and explore!

Amy
11:13 AM November 26, 2012

This is the best go-to foodie blog for expats in KL... easy to navigate, honest reviews, photos, and frequent updates. With the leg work already done, we've tried many new places thanks to the Yum List!

EM

Bertie Low-Ring

Margaret Cheng
11:35 AM November 26, 2012

This site is the best food site in KL. There is something for everyone. I love the way that Monica describes her experiences. The range of food experiences is superb and I misquote Samuel Johnson, resident of another great city, to say, "When you are tired of eating your way through the Yum List, you are tired of life."

Elizabeth Yaganegi
11:44 AM November 26, 2012

Great blog with invaluable information for a superb dining experience. Well worth a look at and trying out the different and various places to eat.

Kirsten Durward
11:50 AM November 26, 2012

As a 'newbie' to KL this blog has been really helpful! When, after 4 weeks in town I had to take a visiting friend who is a restauranteur out to dinner, I knew where to turn. The photos are amazing and mouthwatering, the reviews are honest and accurate. If it's on here and recommended, you should try it. I also love that she includes the little extras that happen from time to time, like the Peruvian food festival, that I would never have known about otherwise. I look forward to many more years in Malaysia, eating off the 'Yum List'!

LIz Wedge
12:08 PM November 26, 2012

Yum List is the one. Great variety of venues and places reviewed and with great command of words. After reading the critiques and seeing the great visuals you want to go and check it out - like yesterday!

Donna
12:33 PM November 26, 2012

This blog has been a godsend for dining out in KL. Monica has done all the legwork for us and we get to enjoy the fruits of her labor. Thanks Monica for taking the guess work out of fine dining.

Sir Paul
12:39 PM November 26, 2012

I rate the Yum List. KL is well known for its food but this helps find those really great experiences. I need to use the site more ... I'm worth it.

Daniel Loo
17:10 PM November 27, 2012

Monica may not be Malaysian but she sure knows her food like a local. I still remember visiting a restaurant in the middle of nowhere after reading her review and it was a delectable find; I was very surprised The Yum List featured that eatery as it was very off-the-beaten-track and if they weren't serious about making great new gastronomic discoveries, it wouldn't be in their radar. Two thumbs up!

Claudia
02:37 AM November 28, 2012

Choosing where to eat in KL can be an overwhelming task and the outcome is not always successful. The Yum List has already narrowed it down for us! they offer us a very diverse list of only great and safe options. You can't go wrong with the Yum List!

Zoe Chaplin
06:07 AM November 28, 2012

The Yum List is the quintessential blog to find out what is going on in Malaysia. Monica is always recommending the best places and has an incredible writing style and gorgeous pictures. There is everything you ever need to know!

Monica has passion for food and she writes it in such a way that makes you feel as if you are enjoying the food yourself :) Whenever I run out of ideas of places to eat, I know where to go...... The Yum List!

I run over 50 restaurants and normally prefer a sandwich at home when I am not at work....... However, whenever I want to have a bite in KL, at least once a week, I will always refer to Yum to find a great meal. Never been wrong once!!!!!!!!!!!

Monica's posts always make me yearn that I lived in KL so that I could try the fabulous food she keeps raving about. Luckily, she gets up to Penang where I live and lets me know what's delicious here. Her photos always make me drool, and she's supportive of other bloggers.

The Yum List is truly a fantastic resource that lists all the wonderful food that you find around (not just in KL). Yummy food is always appreciated: it often gives you a sense of being home away from home! The numerous restaurants (and even the "Eco Yums") are just fantastic to refer to. Geez, I am just getting hungry by looking at all the pictures. Highly recommended to all who are interested in travel and food!

Monica & her team at The Yum List provide travelers to & lovers of Malaysian culture & cuisine a sensual, fulfilling reminder of all the wonderful things Malaysia has to offer. I have looked at numerous other blogs but inevitably come back to The Yum List for the 'real deal'. Monica seems to have her finger on the culinary pulse of KL and a real appreciation of what it is to enjoy this amazing culture. 5 stars isn't enough!!!
