Brendan’s been regularly busting his prepaid data plan and we thought we’d pay the local Umobile office a visit to discuss alternatives. The nearest office is located at AEON AU2, and since it was already lunchtime we decided to try their food court. We’ve always enjoyed AEON (what was formerly known as Jusco)’s food courts, and think that their Rawang and Taman Maluri outlets serve some amazing dishes at pretty reasonable prices.

familiar feeling
spacious and clean


Cat tried their 1Sotong Set; Brendan ordered the Sizzling Lamb Chop while I had a hankering for 2Nasi Lemak.

1spicy barbequed squid served with white rice and slices of cucumber and fresh cilantro leaves
2fragrant rice dish cooked in coconut milk and screwpine leaves, typically served with cucumber slices, small fried anchovies, roasted peanuts, hardboiled egg and hot spicy sauce (sambal)

Cat and Brendan came to this stall
Cat ordered this...
... and got this
Brendan ordered this...
... and got a charred piece of mutton
I got my nasi lemak here...
... and fared a little better


Truth be told, the dishes were pretty average and did not meet our expectations (we thoroughly enjoyed our Rawang and Taman Maluri visits). Furthermore, although being an AEON food court we gather the pricing differs from branch to branch, since the total including a round of Coca-Cola for everyone came to a spend thrifty RM40.29 (with 6% tax).

Since this outlet caters to a lot of senior executives and ex-pats attached to the national petroleum company living in the vicinity AEON has seen it fit to personalize their price scale to fit these affluent people, eh? We won’t be coming here anytime soon then.
