Ichiban Ramen’s Prawn Udon is not as good as its Spicy Chicken Ramen as the Udon noodles are not cooked to perfection. The fried prawns are however delicious.

Express Food – Daily Express @ Pavilion KL

Daily Express is a kopitiam in Pavilion KL and Suria KLCC, not to be confused with the popular British tabloid newspaper.

For lunch, Daily Express offers lunch sets to compete with restaurants but it’s a bit pricey for the working crowds. Although it’s specialty is coffee, the food serves here is almost like Kluang Station and Hometown Kopitiam.

Daily Express' Curry Mee
Daily Express’ Curry Mee

The Curry Mee is one of the favorites though I find it quite mediocre and is not worth the price. The only thing worth is the more peaceful and quiet ambiance when Food Republic is full of working crowds during lunch hour.

Daily Express' Toast Hainan
Daily Express’ Toast Hainan

Toast Hainan, is however quite fresh and just lovely despite the oiliness of the butter.

Daily Express' Coffee (Cold)
Daily Express’ Coffee (Cold)

The coffee is so-so for the price, I would say, still it’s cheaper than Starbucks.

Daily Express' Honey Lemon (Cold)

Meanwhile, Honey Lemon (Cold) is refreshing and thirst-quenching.

Price

  • Lunch Set Curry Mee + Coffee (Cold) – RM 11.30
  • Toast Hainan – RM 2.40
  • Honey Lemon (Cold) – RM 3.60

Gourmet Chicken Pie – Dome Cafe @ Suria KLCC

Dome Cafe has always been my favorite cafe and restaurant. Besides its lovely coffees, Dome Cafe serves great food too.

Dome's Gourmet Chicken Pie
Dome’s Gourmet Chicken Pie

Gourmet Chicken Pie is one of the crowd’s favorites as one shouldn’t miss trying out this delicious pie consists of chicken and mushroom together with irresistible sauce/soup underneath the pie.

Dome's Beef Lasagne
Dome’s Beef Lasagne

Beef Lasagne, however is a little bit disappointing because it just does not have the real taste of lasagna.

Dome's Lemon Chill and Iced Lemon Tea

Colonel Chicken Rice Combo – KFC @ Suria KLCC

KFC has recently come out with Colonel Chicken Rice Combo which consists of 1 Colonel Chicken Rice, 2 pieces chicken, 1 chicken meatball soup, 1 (R) carbonated drink. The Colonel Chicken Rice uses fragrant rice just like your local chicken rice shop.

Except the chicken meatball soup which is too salty, the rice is quite edible, really. Colonel Chicken Rice Combo is the same price as your regular Snack Plate which the only difference is the coleslaw and whipped potato and a bun which is replaced with the Colonel Chicken Rice.

Donuts & Coffee – Big Apple Donuts n Coffee @ The Gardens Midvalley

Big Apple Donuts n Coffee in The Gardens Midvalley is located on the lower ground floor. Although it is located in between The Gardens and Mid Valley Megamall, the actual address of the store says The Gardens.

Cappuccino (Cold) is not the best coffee, but for RM 6.50, it’s affordable and tasty and best of all, it comes with a free glazier donut!

Why queue up when you can buy the drink (usually short queue or no queue at all) and get a free donut with every drink?

My advice, though, don’t hang out there during lunch hour, like 12pm – 3pm as there is a food court nearby and almost all the staff who works in Mid Valley Megamall and The Gardens will eat at the food court, so many people will walk by.

Price

  • Cappuccino (Cold) – RM 6.50

Pan Mee & Assam Laksa – Pan Mee, Food Republic @ Pavilion KL

Pan Mee is located in Food Republic in Pavilion KL and serves food like pan mee dry and assam laksa among others.

Pan Mee's Pan Mee Dry
Pan Mee’s Pan Mee Dry

Pan Mee Dry is true to its name — dry. The dryness of Pan Mee Dry is not too bad if you mix it with the soup that comes along with it. The overabundant of anchovies and small pieces of chicken bits overcome the dryness of the food.

Pan Mee's Assam Laksa Penang
Pan Mee’s Assam Laksa Penang

The Assam Laksa is delicious though it lacks the sourness most Assam Laksa has. Like the Pan Mee Dry, the fish meat is abundant and for the price of RM 6.90, it’s quite worth it.

Price

  • Pan Mee Dry – RM 6.90
  • Assam Laksa Penang – RM 6.90
