Dropping Brendan off for his extra classes, we drove to the Bukit Bintang area since I had to buy a printer cartridge at an IT store here.

Lowyat Plaza, for all things IT and gadget-related


We parked at Sungei Wang Plaza, and since it was close to lunchtime we walked up to the third floor to try out a newly opened food court.

This so-called upmarket food court is located within Sungei Wang Plaza which is one of the oldest and still very popular shopping malls in town. Taking into account its location and foot traffic, we would think this food court would be doing rip-roaring business.

attractive front facade

hardly anyone here

This was hardly the case, and we thought maybe this food court catered to the weekday crowd. The existence of an older and more reasonably priced food stall clustered located on the rooftop could also be another factor?

I went to the Japanese stall and ordered the Chicken Teriyaki with rice while Cat tried the 1Bee Hoon Soup. We both shared a bowl of mango flavoured ice shaving.

oo la la

I tried the chicken teriyaki

my stomach was grumbling

Cat's noodle soup

let's dig in!

The verdict? The Chicken Teriyaki was okay; a little too MSG-laden for my liking while Cat’s soup was just so-so.

Since both our meals went into double digits in terms of price we wondered if this food court would be appealing enough to attract the tenants at Sungei Wang Plaza. Despite the spiraling costs of food the average person will still want to have his lunch cost no more than RM10.

We wish Big Food Street all the best.
