pavilion kl


About a month ago when I was at Pavilion KL, then saw this long queue in this new Taiwanese bubble milk tea shop Chicha San Chen which apparently from Taiwan. this is like a cafe, as you walk towards near the shop, you will smell strong scent of fresh brew tea.

Looking at the queue and the smell is good, we decided to give it a try too. Start queuing. It seems the que is long because alot people in the line like me. We are not sure what to order as everything seems unique. You can even customize your own tea drink too.

Upon orders, they will weigh the tea leave then put it into this extractor like coffee machine to extract concentrated tea.

As good as the tea gets, could this be perhaps one of the best bubble milk tea shop in KL? I presume this is quite expensive and although I love the strong tea taste but it seems for me will be one time off.

One of a wine spot that got into my friends list is The Barn at 1 Mont Kiara. With one of the latest outlet operating at Pavilion KL, it do bring joy to some of my friend that work around that area. Decent to good wines, it is best to go pair along with a nice snacks or mains. Their latest seasonal menu Ibérico de Belotta pork imported from Spain that starts from May till 15th July will be a good pairing.

The outlet in Pavilion is definitely much bigger compare to their first outlet. Not only bigger, but also imagine that they now owns the longest bar in KL.

Let’s dig into their seasonal menu by starting off with a very nice cut of meat which all flown in from Spain. Ibérico Magro is cook to perfection where the middle is still slightly rare where this texture is slightly chewy too. It is a definate must to pair with a glass of red. You can opt by getting their house red wine which turns out to be very good.

Ibérico Solomillo Carpaccio is one of the most tender of cuts that’s best appreciated for its fine marbling and texture. Best to be paired with delicious cheese and rockets it elevates the rich nutty flavour of the Iberico Pork. You can opt to go for their house wine Red (best if it is shiraz or dry wine) or chilled white that brings out the flavour of it.

The Barn (13)

Ibérico Presa with Chutney is actually a shoulder cut and there are 2 version of it.  One which is their classic and another one which is their BBQ.. For both comparison, I definitely like their original better as it gives better texture and classic taste to my palate. Just nice with a touch of some sea salt on top to bring a nice salty taste of it. As for BBQ, the other couple prefer this over the classic as they love the slight smokey char taste  of it and it is also slightly caramelize.

If you are a person who love to have a dish by yourself, then Presa is the perfect choice for you. not too heavy as the cut is just nice for a person portion. Sauce is just night that give a nice touch to the meat yet did not over power it. A balance of slight sourish touch to the nice cut of meat.

The Barn (16)

The Barn (17)

100% Jamon Ibérico de Belotta would be a perfect sharing dish to those that like slightly heavy taste of meat as it is cured for 36 months and a very nice cut of dry meat. Of course, I would love to have this with my dry red wine or super chilled white to pair with it.

The Barn (18)

As the meals finishes, and I am trilled with their local variety, hence Otak-Otak  is a must have in my list. Indeed this is a perfect piece to my liking as it is very smiliar to the one in Penang. Slightly heavy spice with nice herb leave and a long piece of fish meat in it. Recommended one. RM 20

The Barn (19)

Besides that, I also found out that Bak Kut Teh in the Barn is actually one of their signature. It turns out to be not bad as I usually like my BKT in strong herbs taste however this is still acceptable where it is a drinking joint that the taste pairs will with beer or even stout! @ RM 35

The Barn (20)

As for finishing, their Lava Chocolate is a must order. I can finish this myself as it is perfectly bake with the cake crust is slightly hard yet easy to break, and once it break, chocolate just ooze out like lava. A perfect finishing!

The Barn (21)

The Barn (22)

This is by far one of my most unique dessert finishing as it is not flaming Lamborghini however it is liquor Affogato. Quite an interesting coffee ending.

Wild Honey is a Singapore – based cafe that had made a strong pretense in their local context. Moving over to the shore of Malaysia, the first Wild Honey Malaysia is located on Pavilion KL 6th floor by replacing previous tenant Spasso Milano.

With its tag line Wild Honey – No Place like Home is one of a cafe that offers all Day Breakfast and I think they did a collaboration or Common Man Coffee Roasters are associate with them?

My order was Delancey – Pastrami Benedict featuring Sacha & Sons pastrami, poached eggs & grain mustard Hollandaise on signature brioche. @ RM 40

Wild Honey (13)


Crisp Potato pancakes, house cured gravalax, avocado, salmon pearls & horseradish creme fraiche & pickled cucumber.

Wild Honey (14)

Both dish were rather disappointing as for the kind of price that I am paying, I would expect more – in terms of flavours & presentation. One of the reason is also my expectation was built up that how good this place was. For the price I am paying, I could opted Yeast that serve better quality food. Portion were small too and I still think I do not mind to pay for Common Man Roasters Brunch Menu.

According to my friend, the safest bet to dine here for a dish will be Norwegian, to add on, she commented that it taste much better in Singapore.

For this outlet, there are mix taste reaction. I had not so good as some of my friends find it good. It is up for yourself to experience it.

Softsrve is one of a successful soft serve ice cream pioneer not too long ago and with that they have open out another new concept at Pavilion Elite or Pavilion new wing known as Softsrve Mini which is located at the food court level. This section is also will be another new underpass walkway that leads you to Brands Outlet at Fahrenheit 88.

When something is new in the market, then do prepare to queue. The crowd is building up as this is one of their first outlet out from Damansara Utama (click here to read more)

Since I am greedy, I order Four Flavour Twist @ RM 10 with Soda Cream, Rose Lychee, Grape Yogurt and Melon Milk. Nice gimmick on the long cone paper.  Ice cream is decent and flavour  for soda cream reminds you of the paddle pop lime cream ice cream.

softsrve Mini (9)

Its another new gimmick in town for you to try and insta. Not my type of ice cream that I will go for.
