Panchos no more

The unit where Panchos (Midvalley Top Floor) used to be located in, is now undergoing renovation for "House of Pork". I wonder apart from pork what do they serve.

Yong Len TTDI

Char Kway Teow - MYR 6 nett. I like it because it is those dry type and there is a lot of eggs and beansprout in it. Blood cockles can be added for a fee.

Prawn mee - MYR 6 nett. The portion is small which is good because I can then eat other food.

Yong Len at TTDI around 9.30 am on a Sunday. We waited a while for seats because it was full house. I was disappointed because I wanted to buy a particular kuih here but on this day that I visited that kuih was not available in the trays of kuih being sold.

WG Red Kettle Starling

I am also not sure why on this particular day I ordered Iced Cappuccino during lunch at MYR 12.50+ (10% service charge = MYR 13.75 nett). It tastes fine.

Pan Fried Seabass at  MYR 28.90+ (MYR 31.79 nett). My friend ordered Sambal Tumis Seabass with Rice at the same price. For both dishes, the seabass steaks are prepared in the same way - pan fried. We saw these seabass dishes in the menu and decided to have lunch at this eatery.

The mashed potatoes is creamy and the roasted vegetables - broccoli, cauliflower, baby tomatoes, sugar snap peas and brinjals are tasty. The skin of the seabass is pan fried till very crispy.

A different view. 

Total price for 2 pax is MYR 78.20 nett.

Entrance. As PH said "No more" in her post, I will also not be returning for more because even though the seabass tastes fine, I can do without it due to its price.

Whole chicken leg

After mentioning Jing Ba Ba here, I did not expect to end up eating there.

Glossy menu. Can you believe the price of the Nasi Lemak with Fried chicken? Their new menu is not ready so the price stated here is with GST 6%.

We almost always order iced white coffee when we find it in the menu.

Ice white coffee at MYR 5.57+ (10% service charge = MYR 6.12 nett) and Fried chicken leg nasi lemak at MYR 17.83+ (MYR 19.61 nett). About 4 years ago, the price was MYR 21.90 nett for nasi lemak with squid curry and deep fried chicken leg.

Total price for 2 pax (because we shared the food) is MYR 25.75 nett.

MB Four Seasons Place KL

This is the food court at the new Robinsons store next to KLCC. What a name for a food court.

It has stalls selling Bak Kut Teh, Clay pot chicken rice, BBQ aka roast meat, beansprout chicken rice, cendol, curry chicken noodle, chili pan mee, fried chicken nasi lemak, pork kway teow, handmade pao,...

...hokkien mee, prawn mee, stir fried carrot cake, pork congee, char kway teow, wanton mee, assam laksa and or chien (oyster omelette).

Assam Laksa (Regular portion) - MYR 10 nett. I was surprise to see the clear broth. Although it lacks the taste of torch ginger flower, the broth is sourish and very appetising.

There is a sizable piece of fish but need to be very careful with all the fine thin bones in the fish.

Pork mee hoon - MYR 9 nett. Quite decent with deep fried pieces of lard.

Fried or chien (regular portion) - MYR 12 nett. I did not try to count how many oysters there are in this omelette but the taste is quite nice. This is the type with tapioca starch added to the omelette to make it a bit chewy.

A large portion of Char Kway Teow for sharing at MYR 12 nett. Sweet and savoury but more to the sweet side due to the amount of thick soy sauce used. Not too bad though I still prefer this one though the price is higher. 

I ordered hot white coffee at MYR 2.50 nett but was given this big glass of coffee so I asked is this white coffee and got the answer of same, same, is same so I accepted it but it sure did not taste like white coffee to me and later I looked at the receipt to see coffee written there but the price is MYR 2.50 nett which is the list price for white coffee whereas the list price for coffee is MYR 2 nett. Since it is a big glass of coffee in an air conditioned food court the price is reasonable so I did not make a fuss.

The cendol at MYR 3 nett is very tasty so we bought two more bowls but the subsequent bowls were not as tasty as the 1st bowl because of either too much coconut milk or too much "gula melaka" that the taste is not balanced.

Subsequent bowls of cendol did not have this much cendol in them.

Chye Kueh at MYR 2 nett each with chives, jicama, yam and pumpkin fillings. The skin is very nicely made, not too chewy but springy enough.

Drinks and Cendol are from the same stall 9.

This food court is located in the new Four Seasons Place KL where the new Robinsons store is also located.

Parking on a Sunday at KLCC costs MYR 5 nett for the 1st 3 hours so we stayed for a little less than 3 hours.

One Utama Decor

On the right - trays of spices.

Can you spot the 1 Utama logo?

A stall selling household items.

There is even a palm tree.

Bird eye view.

A tower with 1 Utama logo on it.

2 logos.

At the old wing with colourful plates.

The layout of the stalls.

I think they did a good job setting up the look and feel of the decorations because it felt like I was walking in a market place in Marrakesh.

Midvalley Decor

 A wooden house with lots of flowers at the Midvalley Mall.

The area looks kind of bare.

More flowers can be seen from this angle.
