10 Places To Dine At If You Are Around Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

Be it local, international or fusion cuisine, the major township of Bandar Menjalara between Kepong and Bandar Sri Damansara houses plenty of eateries worth exploring. From the inexpensive Western meals at Meat One Cuisine to the authentic Peranakan dishes at Just Nyonya and Roman-style pizza varieties at Pizza Roma, here are the 10 Places To Dine At If You Are Around Bandar Menjalara, Kepong.

What To Eat In Bandar Menjalara, Kepong

1) Meat One Cuisine

Craving for a Western meal minus the hefty price tag? Well, lucky for you there's Meat One Cuisine located on the first floor of Wisma Menjalara. Expect reasonably-priced Western foods averaging around RM20 and below. For instance, they have different styles of chicken chops covering from Salted Egg to Mushroom, Black Pepper, Maryland and Vanilla Herb -- all served with usual sides of fries and mixed salad. They also offer other menu choices like pork/lamb chops, fish & chips, pizzas and spaghetti. Other than their Kepong branch, you can also locate Meat One Cuisine at Bandar Puchong Jaya and Mahkota Cheras.

2) Foo Hou Dim Sum

Here's a dim sum spot that offers over 40 different varieties to choose from, where you can dine indoors or outdoors. It's worth noting their indoor restaurant is bright, spacious and comfortable too. Back to their dim sum choices, expect familiar steamed and deep-fried morsels such as har gao (shrimp dumplings), siew mai, fried yam rolls and fried sesame balls with lotus paste/red bean paste. Their classic egg tarts come highly recommended too, all flaky on the outside with smooth and savoury-sweet egg custard on the inside. Best of all, each dim sum dish is freshly prepared on a daily basis!

3) Man Man Cafe

Man Man Cafe serves mainly burgers and pasta in the comfort of a minimalist and cosy interior. For the former, customers have the choice of chicken, pork, beef or fish varieties. Their Classic Beef Burger is among the recommended picks from the menu: juicy Australian beef patty layered with savoury cheddar cheese and onion marmalade. Then, there's the special sauce, which elevates the overall taste of the burger. Their pasta selections are no slouch either. Take their Bacon Carbonara, for instance: the creaminess of the carbonara sauce goes well with the al-dente pasta and delicious bacon slices. Man Man Cafe also includes Japanese donburi dishes, offering classic selections like Karaage Chicken Don and Salmon Mentai Don. Finally, if you are not into heavy meals, they have coffee, waffle and cake options available as well.
