Belanga

A malay restaurant at The Garden’s lower ground floor. It is situated next to Nyonya Color. It offers nasi dagang and nasi kerabu with different side dishes or “lauk”. It also has noodle selections such as assam laksa and laksam. The portion of the meal was generous and tasted good.

The setting arrangement of this restaurant is simple and able to accommodate quite a number of people and it’s quite crowded during the lunch hours.

Nasi Kerabu with Ayam Percik
It was my first try at this restaurant and I was quite surprised to know that nasi kerabu is not blue colour which I used to think of. The taste of the sauce on top of the rice blended nicely with yellow colour rice. It is not spicy.

The chicken on the right side of the plate was juicy and it tasted quite nice with its unique sauce. They will give either the drumstick side or the chicken wing side and both sides also have quite a lot of meat to eat. It included some unknown dried spices (bottom left) which I did not know what it is.

Nyonya Color

After the Malacca trip, I seldom get to eat any Nyonya food in KL. Luckily, there is a Nyonya restaurant located at The Gardens, lower ground floor. The Nyonya Color is located next to the Belanga and the CIMB bank. It is a corner shop with quite limited space to sit.

It is a self-service restaurant where I have to queue up and order my own food. In this shop, you can easily spot the Nyonya kiuh in the transparent shelves. You can come here for a tea break too.

I spotted the Nasi Lemak Special (RM8.90)which I liked it very much. It comes with a big piece of breast chicken, few pieces of cucumber, half of the boiled egg and some anchovies and nuts. I think they use the pandan leaves to cook the rice as it has some pandan smell. The portion of rice was generous, the chicken was tasty and big enough. Here is the picture,

Dry Curry Noodle

It was suggested by my colleague to try out their dry curry noodle. It has a quite thick curry gravy with chicken meat. It also has few pieces of beancurd (tau fu bok). It does not taste very spicy as its look does. The only drawback is the portion looks a little less, maybe it was because I ordered meehoon.

Mee Rebus (RM8.90)
Nyonya Colors
This Mee Rebus is quite nice with generous amount of ingredients. It has a little bit spicy taste. Remember to squeeze the lime into the noodle before start eating it. It tastes better 🙂

Another dish that you can try out is the Mee Siam. The fried meehoon is just normal for me, however, the chicken is different, it is honey chicken with sesame seeds on it.

The other delicacies such as Roti Bakar.

Green Bean Dessert

If you are Ice Kacang fans, you can try out their Ice Kacang. I did not try it but my colleague ordered. Sorry it was melted into cold water 🙂

If you are looking for the Teh Tarik, you also can find it here.

Planters’ Inn

If you are looking for nice buffet lunch and you don’t mind to pay a little bit more expensive, Planters’ Inn at Crown Plaza Hotel at Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur, is another good choice to choose. It is situated in front of the  Sultan Ismail monorail station and next to the Wisma Genting. The area is spacious and it has various type of food to choose. There are 3 different food sections;

1) Main dishes, soups & breads, raw food & vegetable, fruits, ice-cream
2) A row of desserts
3) Chinese food, japanese food and western food corners

This is my second visit to Planters’ Inn. I found out that there are many people who like to queue up to get a bowl of ginseng boiled soup. I have to request from the chef at the Chinese section as they need to take it out from the steamed wok. Drink it while hot, it’s good for health. There are other types of soups available in the main dishes section.

If you want to try their dim sum, I think it’s pretty disappointed because I found that their dim sum is not good enough. Personally, I didn’t feel it’s nice to eat.

Next, you can try their raw osyter, prawn and sashimi. If you don’t like to eat raw osyter or prawn, you can ask the chef from the teppanyaki section to cook it for you. Other than that, you can have chicken teppanyaki and tempura at the japanese section.

Usually, you can find satay in the main section. They have chicken and beef satay. I like to eat the chicken satay because it’s juicy and their sauce is tasty.

Then, I tried out their spagetthi at the western section. It has nothing special, you can pick and choose what types of ingrediants that you want to cook together with the spagetthi.

Lastly, I tried their desserts. As usual, cake is not my main target. I tried their ice-cream selection. I am not sure whether the ice-cream is home-made or bought from any ice-cream makers but I like its peach ice-cream. It is unique, tasted good and yummy. So far, I don’t see other places offer peach favour ice-cream.
