I try to avoid the mega-malls but for the ease of parking I found myself in the mother of all mega-malls, The Pavilion. One of the newest downtown malls in KL it has high end shops like Prada, Versace, Louis Vuitton and caters to the affluent European and Middle East clientele. I seldom have reason to be in here, but I am surprised when the escalator takes me up to a wonderful food court from the parking deck below.
I’ve only been through this mall to get to the other side of the block.
On the way back I stop at the bottom floor of the Pavilion for lunch. This is a very nice food court, they got Korean, Chinese, Vietnamese, Japanese, Siamese… it’s all here! Give me a moment it’s just too much.
All malls have a food court but this one is new, shiny, clean, and there are lots of tourists so pulling out my camera is a common occurrence here. The food court is like any you see in the US, restaurants are around the circumference; you walk up and order then sit in the center to enjoy your meal. I’ve been here twice now. The first time I ordered from MEE JAWA.
You pick your noodle and how you want it prepared.
This had a light coconut milk stock, with seafood, tofu, chili paste on the side, fried shallots and crushed peanuts on the top with a side of lime to squeeze all over it, and the obligatory boiled egg, so very good.
On my second visit I went to Roast Honk Kong, they serve roast duck and chicken.
This is one of my favorite food courts however, the down side to the Pavilion or any food court in a large mall is that you lose the authenticity, the cultural feel, the mingle-ability with people, so by no means am I giving up or overlooking the street hawkers and the many wonderful independent ethnic restaurants still out there to explore.
Next, Lot 10 food court and next week I head to KOREA to visit a friend. Hope to have some great pictures.
