O’Briens Sandwich Bar & Café @ KLCC

Wen Ching and I had a crazy shopping on the second day of CNY. Seriously, not all complexes were opened for business on CNY holiday but we tracked down and found that most shops in KLCC were on for business. Shop shop shop and shop non-stop for 4 hours until 8pm.

Stomach growled and it was time for dinner. What were we going to have for dinner? As it was already 8pm, we thought of having not-too-heavy-meal. We stood in front of the information board for 15 minutes to decide on what to eat… 15 minutes! Not a short time to make a decision. We tried eliminate those which were ‘incompatible’ to our ‘not-too-heavy-meal’ till I said, Let’s O’Briens!





This is the bright looking clean café with healthy image that caught our attention. We just knew this won’t disappoint us. O’Briens Sandwich Bar & Café is located at the Ampang Mall in KLCC on the Isetan side.






I had the Frothy Hot Chocolate which came in so frothily and foamy sprinkled with amount of cocoa powder and 2 marshmallows. I love this hot chocolate-riched drink with the melted marshmallows that comforted my empty stomach.






Wen Ching had the Iced Chocolate drink it was very chocolaty riched too but it was slightly sweeten to my liking.





We had our mains shared. As she had a cold drink, she came out with an idea of cold + hot combination, so she ordered the Chicken, Chicken Crisp and Cheddar Hot Wrappo. There were countless ingredients rolled in the piece of whole meal wrapper. It served warm and tasted really good. The chicken crisp (if you can see it, it was in Maroon) was very crispy and … special (for me and her).






As for me, I ordered the Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese on Whole meal. It came with smoked salmon, thick spread of cream cheese, mixed leaves (vege), cucumber, and zest squeeze of lemon juiced sandwiched in between whole meal bread slices. By the way, both wrappo and sandwiches were served with Chips which was baked and very original in taste!!!



I can’t believe we were really stuffed up. Each of us had half of the wrappo and a quarter of the Whole meal sandwiches. The left over?! I took away and had them as breakfast next morning. See?! Who says you can’t full up your stomach with just bread or sandwiches as dinner?! Or maybe we are ‘small-eater’ (ho-haha, I don’t think so)?! A revisit is a definite for me. Their healthy concept and serve nourishing greenish healthy meal impressed me a lot! ~
