KUALA LUMPUR, July 17 — The PWTC LRT station’s close proximity to Sunway Putra Mall gives commuters access to eight levels of shopping floors with everything from fashion, gadgets, food, home and living, and groceries.
In addition to Selera Street food court, I counted over 50 food and beverage outlets within Sunway Putra Mall so grabbing a bite in air-conditioned comfort is not difficult.
Aside from the usual chain restaurants, notable unique outlets include the DC Comics Superheroes Café and Taste Better.
The former transports you to the DC Comics universe and comic geeks can enjoy its offerings, which are inspired entirely by these characters.
Malaysia’s notorious King of Fruits is banned in most public spaces but durian fans are in for a treat as Taste Better (LG level) offers delectable hand-made freshly baked durian puffs.
These puffs are best consumed whole ― take delight in its creamy pungency flooding your mouth when you bite into the buttery puff.
Just a short stroll away from the PWTC LRT station are a few mamak restaurants where one can enjoy piping hot tandoori chicken and crispy roti paratha for less than RM10.
Following a tip from a friend, I went in search of Restoran Ar-Raudhah for an authentic Middle Eastern meal.
Chicken Pikle was a recommendation from the server and we also ordered Lamb Mendy.
The rice had the perfect balance of spices while the lamb chunks were a tad chewy ― I was informed that it is meant to be such.
We enjoyed the Chicken Pikle the most; an interesting medley of sweet, sour and mildly spicy.
Another Middle Eastern restaurant within the vicinity is Hyderabad Recipes.
The outlet in Jalan Putra is one of four outlets throughout the Klang Valley and its specialties are Hyderabad-style biryanis and breads.
