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.

Walnut Date

My grandmother loves to eat this snack which is a big Date with walnuts in it. It is made in China if I am not mistaken and I believe it is sold here in KL too but I have not seen it in the usual supermarkets that I frequent.

WG Too much

My friend wanted to eat at Purple Cane, Midvalley Mall again. There were some good lunch sets with rice available but I did not feel like eating rice so after looking through the menu a few times, I ordered "Pan Fried noodle with grouper fish slices and prawns in tea sauce" for MYR 23.90++ (0% service charge and 6% GST = MYR 27.90 nett). The portion of noodle was huge with a few slices of fish but only 2 prawns. I kept half the noodle for dinner. While the noodles are acceptable and I know slices of grouper fish and prawns are supposed to be expensive but I think I won't be ordering this dish again due to its price because to pay almost MYR 30 for just a plate of noodles with some fish slices and 2 prawns is not worth it.

The tiny deep fried anchovies were from my friend's fried rice. She did not feel like eating them because she felt their tiny eyes staring at her so I ate them for her.

Total price for 2 pax is MYR 56.80 nett.

Please click on the above photo for a bigger image. I was considering this section of the menu between the beef, lamb and fish dish and settled on the fish dish. Next time I must make a better choice.

Healthy delivery

Their menu changes daily and there is only one choice per day. You can read the interview with the two founders at this link of what made them start this delivery service. My friends all agreed that their food is tasty and the portion is quite generous and there is a good balance of meat and vegetables.
