4 “unseen” places to go for comfort food!!!!


Whether the weather has been dismal as it has been lately, or whether it is scorching hot, or even if we are feeling depressed or exhausted… nothing much can be more comforting then some really good food

Malaysians are well known for their love for food…thats why many of us are obese or fat.. even me… despite my protests of trying to lose weight… I still am not able to turn down the prospect of good food…Sis tak kuat… huhuhu

Anyway, here in no particular ranking or order are 4 places you won’t quite think of, that serves some amazingly good comfort food which we were introduced to recently at the Gaya Travel and KL Tourism Bureau’s Unseen media familiarisation KL trip

Nasi Lemak Saleha


Most Malaysians love their Nasi Lemak, and that include me even if I am not such a fan of rice… How can you resist when it comes with nice sambals, rendangs, curries and fried chicken/anchovies etc…

I ordered for myself a plate of Nasi Lemak with sambal sotong and my inner glutton could not resist the “ayam goreng berempah” (spiced fried chicken)… The rice is temptingly fragrant infused with santan and the sambal is spicy enough and full of flavours…The chicken is of course… fragrant, beautifully marinated and tasty…


They do have other tempting noodle dishes as well… if you are not such a rice person…

Would I have more? You betcha…

Banana Bro


BananaBro is a Banana Leaf Restaurant inside Berjaya Times Square at the Lower Ground floor…

I love it here because it gives Banana Leave Rice fans the opportunity to enjoy some pretty tasty Banana Leaf Rice in the heart of KL in a cooling and comfortable ambience….

Their Banana Leaf Rice is served from 11am onwards until 9.30pm, where each set is priced at RM12.90 and comes with white or brown (aka Indian) rice, 3 types of vegetables, 4 types of curries, pappadam, rasam and yogurt…..All items are refillable if you need more…

The curries are lovely, thick and nicely spiced and the fresh yogurt is also made in-house…We all love the authentic taste and the price pretty reasonable…

My personal favorite had to be the mutton masala (RM9.90) with generous tender, chunks of meat cooked in a spicy tasty chilli type paste…

Coffee House, Sunway Putra Hotel


Another of Malaysian’s comfort food would be the Fish Head Curry….and if ypu are craving for some, be sure to get yours from…. The Coffee House at Sunway Putra Hotel….

They serve up a pretty mean one that will tempt your palate… Made with authentic flavors; every bite is richly packed with satisfying fishy goodness…


The fish head curry here is lovingly prepared with its condiments of brinjal, okra, tofu puff and blend of vegetables in a seamlessly well balanced spiciness and creaminess all in a claypot..

It is really so good every bite is a treat… especially with the unbelievably affordably price….

A medium sized bowl of fish head curry is priced at just MYR39.90 nett. Served with two bowls of steamed rice and vegetables.

A big bowl of fish head curry is priced at MYR59.90 nett. Served with four bowls of steamed rice and vegetables.

Atmosphere 360, KL Tower


If you do not know what you want to eat and need more food to comfort you and warm your belly, try the tempting spread at the Atmosphere 360, the revolving restaurant 282 metres up in the sky….


Probably the one of the highest restaurants around KL, you can just enjoy your lunch or dinner with the a different view of the amazing Kuala Lumpur skyline everytime you look up…


With a tempting buffet spread showcasing modern authentic Malaysian & International cuisine, coupled with the breathtaking view, your dining experience is just incredible…

We enjoyed tastes from Peninsula Malaysia’s largest state Pahang while we were there…

This is the place you can take your pick of appetizers like pasta salad with roasted garlic, salad and a great selection of cold cuts…

Over at the hot food counters, indulge patin asam tempoyak, mussel with kam heong sauce and dishes.

Do be sure not to miss out the local selections such as the Ayam Goreng Berchili and Ikan Asam Pedas as well…


The dessert spread is made up of a selection of freshly prepared cakes, kuehs and sweets…

I think the lunch buffet here is served daily in two sessions from Monday to Sunday, according to their website..

RM98.60 nett per adult
RM75.40 nett for Children (5-12 years old), OKU & Senior Citizens (above 60 years old)
