Bon Ton @ KLCC
June 26, 2010
Nestled in a discreet corner of Isetan KLCC on the supermarket floor, fairly hidden from prying eyes. The feng shui for this outlet can't be the best though; haven't three different cafes tried their luck here in the past five years?
Nyonya laksa, Bon Ton's longtime signature recipe. Imperfect (blame the bleak, bland noodles), but we still slurped the milky coconut curry to the last spoonful.
Pai tee. Not bad, but not as crisp and fresh as we like 'em. I've resigned myself to never again tasting pai tee that's as satisfying as the ones from my childhood.
Oven-baked chicken breast with shallot rice & mixed veggies. Fairly tender, soaked in a slightly spicy citrus-based sauce. But it won't stick in the memory for long.
Red apple sorbet. Nicely encased in a real hollowed-out apple.
Pineapple sorbet. Somewhat creamier than most sorbets, but every bit as refreshing.
