Bangsar is a hip suburb just 15 minutes outside the city center. Bangsar is experiencing a renaissance, with one-of-a-kind boutiques, galleries, cafes, and restaurants. This suburb is stealing the thunder with its rising tide of fine dining hotspots, chic eateries and Aussie-style cafes. But the best part about Bangsar is that you can find any type of restaurant serving a myriad of cuisines at any budget your tummy desires.
Bangsar has long established itself as a foodie neighborhood. These days cheap eateries, kopitiams
(coffee shops) and roadside stalls compete for attention alongside fine dining restaurants and chic cafes. Expect to find every type of cuisine - eat delicious Malay, Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mediterranean and Thai food. You'll never go hungry if you're in the Bangsar area. Cafes and kopitiams
open their shutters as early as 7 in the morning and you can eat round the clock at mamak
(Indian Muslim) stalls on sidewalks and pavements. Some chic cafes stay open past midnight fueling club and party goers. You're bound to find a restaurant to fit your budget. Whatever your preference, Bangsar serves up some of the best food in the city.
tops the list dishing out some of Malaysia's most popular street food in comfortable surroundings. You can find gems such as nasi lemak, koay teow
(stir fried egg noodles), and chicken rice - all of which are brought to your table promptly by warm, friendly staff. Food at Madam Kwan's never disappoints - dishes are wholesome, hearty and consistent in flavor.
Ben's General Food Store
pops up at number two. This new entry into the neighborhood has been garnering a loyal following amongst pizza lovers. The kitchen churns out pizzas with extraordinary toppings. Expect crunchy, fresh out of the oven goodness. At the third spot is Restoran Rebung
- it's your stop for home style Malay food cooked by celebrity Chef Ismail.
Getting a table at Restoran Sri Nirwana Maju
during peak hours is always a challenge. But it's worth the wait when rice and delicious curries are heaped onto your banana leave. It's one of the city's best South Indian restaurants. Garibaldi Italian Restaurant & Lounge
adds a touch of sophistication to the neighborhood with a lighter, more modern approach to traditional Italian fare. Another noteworthy restaurant is the Grand Imperial
- part of a chain of restaurants- that serves some of the city's best dim sum. Twenty One Tables & Terraces
offers a good enough food but even better views of the city beyond.
