Our hotel was close to the Pavilion Shopping Mall and when we saw that it had a wealth of international restaurants, we thought we would give one a try. It was hard to choose as there were so many, but we finally settled on Michelangelo's.
We both opted for thin based pizzas. My husband had tuna pizza and I had vegetarian. They were both well cooked and tasty.
Service was friendly and attentive.
The restaurant had a good selection of wines, but we opted for a jug of beer which contained about 4 glasses worth.
The price was more expensive than for local food, but what I would expect to pay for international.
We decided to eat at the Bavarian Bierhaus on our first night in KL because it was near our hotel and because my husband, being half Austrian, loves German/Austrian food. Plus they had a good offer on on their beer prices.
The restaurant is located on the ground floor of Wisma UOA II, Jalan Pinang. The nearest monorail stop is Rajachulan.
When we arrived the restaurant was ful,l and we were asked to wait 5 minutes for a table, actually the very friendly staff found and gave us a table almost immediately.
We were just in time for their happy hour beer offer, so we ordered that immediately before the offer ran out. We had no problem being charged the correct price.
I had sizzling pork steak. My husband had Nuremburger sausages and we got a bread basket to share.
Food arrived reasonably quickly. It was all tasty and with the bread basket was the right quantity for the two of us.
Service was very friendly and attentive. Of course it was more expensive than eating local Malaysian food, but about normal for an international restaurant in KL.
Indoor and outdoor seating was available. On the night of our visit the restaurant had a pleasant, friendly atmosphere and was very popular.
We popped in here for a quick drink and some starters when we visited Chinatown. In the heat of the day we would not have been able to eat a meal. I asked the friendly waiter if it was OK if we just had a drink, he told me eat, drink, anything, OK, just not sleep.
The cafe is housed in a pre-war shop house and dates from the early 1900s and has huge mirrors for good feng shui. The walls are decorated with old photos and clocks. The furniture is antique. I thought it was great and would not mind returning for an evening meal some time.
The cafe was once home to the guild hall of the Selangor and Federal Territory Laundry Association. The Old China Cafe serves traditional Peranakan dishes. The Peranakan culture developed from the intermarriage of Chinese and Malays.
It was really a surprise dinner for me as my manager, Janet, invited us for a dinner in this old mall, Pudu Plaza. Pudu Plaza is an old shopping mall but it maintains well with the local Chinese crowd in the neighborhood. It was my first time in the mall, it was like entering to the 70s or 80s. I was heading down to the LG floor, here the small Chinese Restaurant, Hiong Kong Restaurant, serving local Cantonese or Chinese cuisine. I was wondering what was so great about this restaurant cause the 7-seated restaurants were fully booked on Friday evening. Janet told us their food is delicious and they are fully booked all the time. You need to call for reservation as they have limited table to serve you each night. When the first dish, Lobster Platter, was served, then I understand why! It is really delicious! And the rest of the dishes are just fantastic. We all love it even we had to wait each dish between 20 to 30 minutes to be served. We understand because it is only a small restaurant with only one chef and a few helpers in the kitchen.
Favorite Dish: The Lobster Platter is really good appetizer that included fried butter prawn, creamy yam basket with kung Pao chicken, century egg, squid, jellyfish and the delicious lobster salad and abalone.
Other dishes include fired lotus root with macadamia nuts, mushrooms, carrot and gingko nut, seafoods in clay pot, fried fish with black bean sauce, and etc. The meal concluded with desserts like honeydew sago Chinese dessert, and fried caramel yam. yam!
The 5th floor of the Parvillion shopping mall in Jalan Bukit Bintang has many good restaurants of international cuisines. I went to Din Tai Fung because I miss the " Xiao Long Bao " that I am sure it is in their menu. As we are there in dinner time, we have to wait for a while before being seated. We are not wasting time as the waitress suggest us to order for food while waiting. We spent about RM115 inclusive taxes for 4 persons.
This coffee house is attached to the Royal Selangor Club, its customers are mainly the club members and their companians. We were there to have a soft drink before we proceed for Dataran Merdeka which is nearby. The coffee house serve the in house guests, some members organised their private function and gathering occupying part of the VIP corner. There are articles and picture about the history of the RSC display on the wall, telling the story from 1890's when the RSC was found.
What I like at the Saloma is that also a Culture Show w local dances and dancers r to be seen .... Good to be part of Asian traditions as having ur dinner ...
Its a buffet, very well sorted, soups, satays, sea food, noodles, fried rice etc, and also yummy desserts ....
Located in Golden Triangle and in walking distance to Petronas Towers.
Very recommendable Restaurant for its tasty food and culture dance shows ...
Favorite Dish: All kinds of Far East food, especially satays and shrimps r my favorites ... :)
Next door to Starbucks, Rasa Utara were among the few outlets that was opened in the early hours of the day at Berjaya Times Square (well, not that early anyway, it was 9 when we were there). The restaurant was clean and has a nice, quiet ambiance. Patrons can choose to dine indoor or alfresco.
As for the menu, there were not much of choices for breakfast. Available items were mee goreng, lontong (with nasi impit), nasi lemak (with 4 different condiments namely ayam rendang, daging rendang, ayam berempah dan sambal sotong) and roti canai (with 3 different varieties - roti kosong, roti telur dan roti telur dengan bawang). The waiter was kinda ambivalent as well, talking to customers with a straight face rather than the warmth normally exudes from northern folks (well, perhaps he is not from the north, but I am!)
We ordered a "Nasi Lemak dengan Ayam Berempah" and "Nasi Lemak dengan Sambal Sotong". The Ayam Berempah looked and tasted a bit charred. The creaminess and fragrance of the steamed rice could be improved. The sambal lack the distinct "utara" sourish-savory taste with tiny tinge of sweetness; all we can feel is the hotness from ground chili. I would rate the spiciness of the sambal at 4 on my spiciness scale of 1 to 10 - it didn't cause me to sweat or have a runny nose, and for me those are the desirable reactions that I have when having a good sambal!
The presentation of the nasi lemak lacked the generosity that normally goes with the real northern version; I guessed I must have been used to getting generous helping of fried anchovies, peanuts and sambal with my nasi lemak back home. The set were priced at RM6.50 and it came with either kopi, teh tarik, or black tea; quite reasonable for a set brekky in the capital city. Nonetheless, I know I can get a better deal easily in terms of pricing and authenticity of the taste back home.
Perhaps it would not be fair to compare a real "utara" fare with the food being served in a restaurant located in the capital city of Malaysia. But then again, I feel the restaurant must live up to it's northern cuisine branding in order to carry the "rasa utara" (northern taste) name.
Was attracted to the signboard of the food court. Went in and found very nice food stalls. Among them, I do recommend chao guo tiao, popiah, fried Hokkien noodle..etc.. All these in a air con place. But do expect long queue and higher price compare to the non air on street food.
Favorite Dish: Chao guo tiao. Very authentic .
The price is reasonable for unlimited meat and vege. You can order 2 type of soup based.. Kimchi, sukiyaki or shabu shabu. There's quite aside variety of vege to choose from.
They have softee ice cream too...but I think you can give it a missed. The taste is just not right.
Favorite Dish: Beef and pork, n veges
This local restaurant is fantastic.
Wonderful local food, very tasty, and so cheap.
The staff speak english, and are great, and they have an english menu.
Obviously well used by the locals as well.
For a filling fried rice dish, topped with fried egg, a side chicken and veg dish, and large orange juice - less than $3 Aus.
If I was in the area again would be back here for certain.
Kayu Nasi Kandar Restaurant has grown and offers a wide selection of Indian Muslim dishes originally from Penang.
Favorite Dish: roti tisu at rm8 each....
nibble away on your roti tisu with teh tarik whilst you wait for main dinner...
order teh tarik kosong as roti is already sweetish due sugar coating...
We had been shopping in the huge Pavillion Shopping centre and were starving!
As we walked past this restaurant it looked cosy and quiet and we decided to have lunch here out of the way of the noise and crowds. Turned out to be a great idea.
Although the food was a little on the expensive side, I liked the breads and butter that we were given whilst we waited for our food. That was a nice touch.
We decided to go pasta and it was done el dente! :o) I noticed later that this is actually a bakery so no wonder the bread was awesome! :o)
We saw this restaurant from our hotel room at the Prince. The colourful fairy lights and hive of activity demanded that we go check it out. Upon arrival the place was packed and you know what that means..... good food! :o)
We were not disappointed, the food was fresh, local and yummy plus the price was very good! Washed down with a couple of coldies (Beer), we came out feeling very satisfied..... and the best bit is the our hotel was just around the corner ;o)
After our skybridge walk, Abbey took us down to the shops underneath and we visited what's called "the food hall" in Australian terminology......a place where you sample cheap authentic cousine.
Abbey bought some local Malaysian food on skewers and we savoured them and a nica cup of coffee.
Thank you so much for everything that you did for us Abbey and the wonderful gifts that you bought for all of our family! xx You are a true treasure!! :o)
