The Ming Room is probably the most sought after dim sum restaurant in KL currently. It was full house, packed to capacity on a Sunday noon and many customers (including us) were waiting for tables to free up. On Sundays and Public Holidays, they have a special menu which highlights a number of dishes that are not in the dim sum category.
Nam Chuan is one of the most frequented coffee shops in Bangsar because of its location. It's a cheap place to eat and is usually packed with office workers and locals. There are a lot of people who purposely come here for Aunty Christina's Sarawak Laksa too.
Croisette Cafe at Bangsar serves wallet-friendly French dishes. Their daily set lunches are value for money too, priced at an affordable RM30 on weekdays and RM40 on weekends. Each set comes with a starter, main, dessert and cup of coffee or tea. On a clear sunny day, you get to enjoy an unobstructed view of Bangsar's surrounding and Kuala Lumpur's skyline from the poolside.
Hanbing originates from Hong Kong and their outlet in Bangsar is actually their first oversea branch. As of now, most of the items you see on the menu are more suitable for sharing and we were told that a new hot food menu is scheduled to launch by end of this month. Hanbing's milky snow ice is seriously soft and fluffy void of annoying ice bits - melting as soon as it hits your tongue.
When the place we wanted to have dinner at Bangsar unexpectedly closed due to a small fire, we headed to Piggy Tail instead. First impression: it looked more like a watering hole (no one was eating) and almost a quarter of their menu was not available. In retrospect, those should have served as warnings but then it started raining so we decided to stay on and just hoped for the best.
