Chawan @ Bangsar

August 06, 2009

The 2 best-ies of mine Christine and theSUGAR are back to KL. Guess their taste buds are already numbed after being fed with bread, western food, cereals, potatoes, bun… for a long time in the land of English.

Both of them are back with missions. They want real local delicious cuisines.

I decided a new place for us --- Chawan at Bangsar for Malaysian local cuisine and a get together chit chatting.

The partial-opened-space restaurant was a bad idea for us. The weather was kinda warm that day. We sweated a little while enjoying our meal.

We had

Nasi Lemak Ayam Rendang priced at RM 9.90

Asam Laksa (RM 9.90)

Curry Laksa (RM 9.90)

Both the Nasi Lemak and Curry Laksa were good. As for the Asam Laksa, it was just so-so. All of us agree that it is really hard to find a good assam laksa in KL.

Never forget to try out their coffee. This is a place where you can try out all the best and famous coffee(s) from all states in Malaysia. I chose a cup of Kopi Kemaman which is the Terengganu all time classic signature coffee. It is buttery brewed with a subtle cocoa flavour and milk.

They never missed out the Malaysia’s Limau Ais and Teh-O-Limau Panas.

delicious sambal there.
paired with the thick cup of coffee (with biscuits?!), heavenly.
esp on a sunday morning.

yaya... good for a breakkie on suday morning...
but not noon or afternoon cz it will be very very warm.

minchow said...

Wow, this actually looks decent! And very affordable for the neighbourhood. So it's not a fake contrived kopitiam concept like some of the others one we know??
