The Starling Special: Unveiling the Foodies’ Nest

February 8, 2018

Offering a terrific balance of variety, quality and affordability, the Starling seeks to reinvigorate the traditional mall food court concept, constructing a bona fide Foodies' Nest at Level 3.

Foodies' Nest features a curation of beloved brands in a brightly lit enclave, with tables thoughtfully separated so that you can dine in peace with your friends, family, or by yourself. It's the ideal destination in PJ when you're looking for a casual meal in a comfortable, cheerful setting.

Co-Working Space

Kids' Corner

If you come with kids, there's a play corner to keep the little ones occupied. And for those who need to get some work done, there's a 'Work, Think, Eat' corner. But above all, the attraction is the food, of course, which takes customers mainly on a journey through Asia. 

Here's a selection of some of the tasty, wide-ranging brands that have made a home in the Foodies' Nest.


Annie1 has become a respected name in Damansara Uptown, with highlights like wanton mee that would be perfect for a satisfying lunch or dinner.

KOM's by Kompassion

Helmed by the team behind Kompassion in Damansara Kim and Taman Tun Dr Ismail, KOM stands out with aromatic delicacies that will tingle the taste buds with the spices and flavours of Thailand.

Lim's Fried Chicken

Well-known for its succulent fried chicken with beautifully crispy skin, this is your chance to finally enjoy Lim's Fried Chicken in Damansara Uptown.

Meat in Claypot

Meat in Claypot quickly becomes meat in your belly once you meet their meat, which includes sumptuous specialties like bak kut teh and braised pork with mui choy.

Oyster King

Oyster King offers a whole range of rice and noodles compositions to accompany your meal as you chow down on their traditional classic of fried oysters.

Taiwanese Mini Hot Pot

For a taste of  Taiwan, Taiwanese Mini Hot Pot gives you a lot of bang for your buck - the pot might be mini but the flavours are mighty.

Teo Chew Curry Laksa

Enjoy heart-warming curry laksa that can be served wet or dry according to your preference, packed with ingredients like fried octopus, prawns or pork slices. There's even a one-of-kind specialty of Tomcurry Laksa, a creative hybrid of tomyam and curry. 

Little Fox

Teppanyaki with a twist: Little Fox whips up tantalising Japanese-inspired temptations from its piping-hot grills, infused with intriguing elements like cheese and various spices.

Mama Yong Tau Fu

Head on to Mama Yong Tau Fu for some yummy in your tummy. With its traditional homemade meat and fish paste stuffing, this place is sure to tease your taste buds. 

FYI: Fruit Your Ice Cream

Time for dessert! Featuring real fruit blended with a mild vanilla ice cream base, Fruit Your Icecream might tempt patrons seeking a healthier version of ice cream. The jackfruit flavour is worth trying, textured with morsels of real fruit, with distinct, fairly well-balanced nuances. Other flavours comprise papaya, mango, banana, pineapple, longan, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and kiwifruit.

Quench your thirst at the beverage counter, which showcases the best-selling kopitiam drinks as well as beer.

All in all, Foodies' Nest proves to be a wholesome, cosy place that you can keep coming back to, especially with so much to sample and savour here.
