Top Food Courts In The Klang Valley

If you live in Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya you'll be familiar with the many food courts around. But some Malaysians and foreigners would disagree to this limited classification, as they see Malaysia being a food paradise and thus feel that the whole Malaysia is like one big food court - you can find food of multifarious varieties at any corner of the country. Anyway, here are the top ten food courts in the Klang Valley (all in KL and PJ), decided by a local newspaper.

Klang Valley houses several top food courts in the country and we have selected some outlets for you to check out and savour the taste.

1. KLCC Signature

If you're ever in KLCC, you definitely must check out Cafe Milano at the Signature's food court . It serves taste pasta at an affordable price [prices about RM8 per portion]. A must try would be the Meatball Alfredo and Meatball Bologna. The food court opens from 9am to 10pm.

1 Utama

Owned by Jusco, this food court has a wide selection of dishes. From local picks to Japanese cuisines, it has everything that you crave for. The hot plate dishes seem to be all the rage now at the food court.

3. Mid Valley Oasis

Mid Valley Megamall has two food courts. Oasis is located on the 2nd floor and the Food Junction on the 3rd floor. Oasis is famed for its pan mee while Food Junction is a favourite among the youngsters for its wide selection of Western-Italian-Chinese-Japanese-Malay food.

SS2 Selera Malam

In SS2, there are several food courts for you to choose from. There's the al-fresco Medan Selera [Malay / Mamak / Chinese roadside food stalls] and Selera Malam [Chinese food court] but are on opposite sides. At the Medan Selera, they serve delicious mee goreng and there are a number of Thai stalls that serve fried seafood like lala and O Chien (oyster omelette).

5. Lot 10

Lot 10 Shopping Centre is one of the oldest shopping malls in the city. Because of its strategic location (right smack in the heart of Bintang Walk), it is a favourite amongst the city folk as it offers a well-balanced shopping and dining experience. Try either the Thai stall or the chicken rice stall.

Sungei Wang

On the top floor of Sungei Wang Plaza is a popular food court known for its reasonably priced food and variety of mixed rice. There are also several good Indian food outlets there if you crave for something spicy.

7. Hartamas Square

Hartamas Square established in March 2003 has since become one of the most popular hangout places amongst the younger crowd and expatriates. It has a good selection of eating outlets. Hartamas Square operates everyday of the week from 4pm to 3am on weekdays and on weekends they stretch it to 5am.

8. Uptown

It may take you some wait to get a parking lot here, but it is worth the wait. The hawker centre is over loaded with so many different stalls serving local as well as western dishes. You are spoilt for choice even when it comes to different types of drinks. The centre opens during lunch and stretches to 3am.

9. Asia Cafe

This food court is a favourite among the college students as it is located opposite Taylor's and Inti Colleges in Subang Jaya. A must try is the wide range of sushi at Sushi Heng, on the left side of the food court from the entrance. Overall, the stalls there are worth checking out.

10. Bangsar

Bangsar food court is famed for its Nasi Lemak Ayam although the price could be on the high side. There are two food courts in Bangsar Telawi - open air and indoor. Best time to visit is at night, either for dinner or supper as there are more stalls by then.

I think Ming Tien Food Court at Taman Megah deserves an honorable mention. In fact, it should be included in the top 10 in place of ss2 Selera Malam.

Okey. If you guys know of any other interesting food courts, please post your recommendations. Cheers.
