The Chicken Rice Shop at Berjaya Times Square

4:58 PM

If you have travelled to Kuala Lumpur from Singapore aboard one of the coaches that ply the Johor Bahru route, then for sure you have seen Berjaya Times Square already. It is the usual drop off point of the passengers. The day after we arrived in Malaysia, my travel buddy (Olive) and I decided to explore the BTS Mall. Berjaya Times Square Mall is the largest building ever built in single phase in Malaysia. There were interesting shops that sells high end stuff and some items you commonly see in a tiangge here in Manila. When we went there we were both hungry and so we decided to look for a restaurant that isn't too crowded and that serves Hainanese chicken.

The lobby, one of the twin towers, the escalators at the Berjaya Times Square Mall. 

I am happy that the menu was written in English. I think I am still traumatized by the all-Chinese or whatever language the menus were written in Macau. PHP to RM exchange when we went there was around RM1=PHP13.25 so the meal prices weren't at all expensive. 

We settled in The Chicken Rice Shop which was located at the 4th floor. The ambiance felt like the usual fast food here in the Philippines. I ordered their Hainanese Chicken Rice Meal.

This is their personal serving of chicken curry. They asked me how hot I want the curry to be and I said just medium. When it was served, it was still very hot for me that I only manage to eat one slice of chicken. I got "umay" and was not able to finish the chicken dish. 

This is the rainbow delight dessert. I could not describe exactly what it was but it seemed to taste like nata de coco (same texture). The colors were probably just food coloring. I didn't bother to ask the servers. Anyway, you'll see Olive's roasted chicken in the background. 

This is the Ipoh Bean Sprouts dish. It was perfect to clean the palate after the burning curry. 

This is the Nyonya Pai Tee. It's like an open-faced lumpia. As far as I can remember, the filling was a mix of vegetables (carrot, cucumber and french beans). The shell is made of flour, egg and water (basic batter). 

The food was good but not splendid. I would like to go back to try their roasted chicken and soy chicken rice though.
