Taste of Asia
Lot LG-23 West, Lower Ground
Berjaya Times Square, No 1 Jalan Imbi
We had something to do at Berjaya Times Square today and thought we’d have lunch first. Perusing the directory list we came across the food court at Lower Ground called Taste of Asia.
"Passionately designed for the love of food, Taste of Asia brings together the most delicious tastes from the Asia region." Berjaya Time Square’s website announced, and we couldn't agree more! This food court has among other things Asian delights, Japanese cuisine, Korean cuisine, local delights, local sweet temptation as well as western cuisine.
|our first time here|
|good first impressions|
Paying for food at Taste of Asia is unlike food courts at other shopping malls in that you will need to purchase a ‘prepaid’ card of your own predetermined value.

Our taste buds have taken a definite swing in favour of
Northeast Asian cuisines these days. Brendan and Cat sampled the Korean stall
while I tried out the Japanese stall.

Brendan eventually ordered the Kimchi Jjigae (a variety of jjigae, or stew-like Korean
dish, made with kimchi [pickled vegetables] and other ingredients, such as
scallions, onions, diced tofu, and seafood)
, Cat had the Bi Bim Bap (literally means "mixed rice", served as a bowl of
warm white rice topped with namul [sautéed and seasoned vegetables] and
gochujang [chili pepper paste]) while I tried the Teriyaki Chicken
(broiled or grilled while being basted in a marinade based on
soy sauce, mirin, and sugar)

We were pleasantly surprised by the tastiness of the dishes
from this food court, and were not in any way disappointed. In fact, the dishes
exceeded our expectations of this newly discovered food court. Having tried the
Japanese and Korean cuisine this time around, we’ll definitely be back to
sample the cuisines here!
