As promised, this is the continuation of our weekend food trip around Kuala Lumpur. Are you ready for it? Now on to the second day!
Hartamas Shopping Centre – San Terri Cottage Food Trip
Since our food adventure ended with a late dinner the day before, we decided to have a late breakfast the following day. Off we went to Hartamas Shopping Centre which was nearby, and where we would not have a difficult time finding a parking slot on weekends.
The best way to describe San Terri Cottage is through their own words: “The concept of San Terri is based on creating a cozy and relaxing environment to our customers. We have a temping array of cakes, sandwiches, salads, pies and desserts to savor from, complimented with a wide selection of hot and cold chilly drinks.”
Like I had mentioned earlier, we were there for breakfast, so we ordered their breakfast set, plus coffee and tea. It was a simple dish consisting of a medium sized omelette, a piece of regular sized sausage, and a slice of toast cut in half. The portion was sufficient enough to assuage our hunger, but not for long.
The Curve – Secret Recipe and Nyonya Colors®
Our next stop was at The Curve. Before embarking on another food adventure, we continued with the shopping spree we had started the previous day, obviously undeterred by our earlier expenses! We crossed over to Ikano first specifically to buy some stuff from Ikea. After paying for our purchases, we thought of having lunch at their cafe, but there was nothing appetizing about seeing the huge crowd and the long queues, and it turned us off the whole idea.
So we walked back to The Curve and settled on having lunch at our regular food haunt, Secret Recipe. The best way to characterize Secret Recipe is through their own description: “Secret Recipe Cakes & Café offers a friendly and personalised full-service dining experience for customers and incorporates a modern contemporary and vibrant interior concept with comfort, ambience, and great food. It provides a great respite for customers to enjoy good food and quality time with friends, family or associates, after a long day at work.”
We decided to order a couple of dishes we have never tried before: Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chicken Barbecue.
The Chicken Cordon Bleu tasted all right although it was somewhat dry, and the size was quite small. The Chicken Barbecue was, simply put, not an exceptional dish. We will stick to our favorite dishes next time.
After that rather unsatisfying lunch, we crossed over to Tesco to buy groceries that could sustain us for a few days. With that errand completed, we walked back to The Curve once again, dumped all of our purchases in the car, and decided to have dinner at Nyonya Colors® for some local fare before heading home. We ordered char kuih teow, curry laksa, and their popular Nyonya kuih.
Finally, with stomachs filled and cravings satisfied, our weekend was complete. Needless to say, our food trip was a total success!
