Malaysia: Kanteen Plus KUALA LUMPUR

The closes shopping mall to my place would be the Plaza Damas mall which may not have as stores operating in it as compared to a bigger mall. Housing necessary outlets such as a supermarket, pharmacies, optometrists and bakeries, there are also a few quaint cafes offering room for catch ups or leisurely reads.

Food in most malls can be financially taxing and so, sometimes it is wiser to venture out to the many eateries located just outside the mall for meals. According to the father, this eatery is popular among officer workers and students alike. Comfortable and spacious seating area, friendly staff and quick service sums up my first impression here.

There is no shortage of food choices as the menu comprises of a balanced mix of Chinese and Malay cuisines, all priced from RM10 to RM18. Ordered a plate of cucur udang (prawn fritters) and a vegetarian version, both served with sweet chilli dipping sauce. Fritters were chopped to pieces, enabling sharing across the table. Slightly oily but delicious nonetheless.

Ayam penyet – the sister, unfamiliar with what she may be ordering but still game enough to take a gamble, ordered this dish. Chicken was crispy and comes topped by a layer of crunchy bits.

Wat tan hor with fried noodles – portion size is just right for myself and comes with a generous serve of soup thickened with egg.  Alternatively, this dish also comes with a hor fun version. Both go down well with a drop of soy sauce infused by chilli padi aka a tiny, vibrant red chilli known to quite spicy.
