For someone who’s born and bred in Bangsar, I thought doing a Top 10 Food to Eat in Bangsar would be easy. After all, I know most of the neighborhood like the back of my hand. Or so I thought. But what I soon realised was how much more difficult it is to come up with this Top 10 list because I know the area so well.

As of when rif and I embarked on this mini project, a few outlets came and went — while we agree that Bangsar has one of the most diverse food offerings (there are so many restaurants we’re fond of), we had to narrow them down to 10 for this list. We decided to mix up the choices; some are finer restaurants and the rest, street/casual dining.

So here’s the Bangsar Babe’s Top 10 Food List, which took us more than a year to curate. Enjoy! :)


Chelo Appam

Chelo Apam

Brown sugar appam

This appam stall in Lucky Garden never disappoints. I’ve been coming here for a few years and each time, they do it right. The sides are crispy, while the centre is fluffy and rich from the addition of coconut milk and sugar. Go for the appam with brown sugar — that to me, tastes best especially with a hot cup of teh tarik!

Sup Kambing Gerai Maidin

I love coming here for my sup kambing fix, though prices have almost doubled from 10 years ago. There’s something about this sup kambing that makes my mouth water — tender chunks of mutton, glide-off-the-bone ribs and rich broth. Perfect during rainy day, and worth sweating for when the weather is humid!

Beato Steakhouse


Dry-aged ribeye steak

Beato comes highly recommended by many of my readers, all singing praises about the dry-aged beef. You’re presented with a chalkboard listing the types of steak cut and weight available for the day. Make your choice and tell them your preferred doneness — I always go for medium rare.



It is best to go for thicker cuts (300gm and above) as I find thinner cuts tend to become slightly ore done than I like. The steaks come served with a side of honey, wholegrain and sweet mustard for extra kick.

Hits & Mrs


Scottish Salmon

Hit & Mrs has a lot more to offer than just food – it is an experience that combines modern cuisine, classic ambiance and a whole lot of passion. This spot in Bangsar focuses on creative European cuisine, helmed by Chef Keith Choong. The restaurant sits on the ground floor and the bar, upstairs. Reservation is vital, to avoid disappointment.

Anuar Fish Head Curry

rif and I have been patronizing this fish head curry stall for many years. He started eating this when he was a kid and introduced me to this stall when we started dating. Prices haven’t changed much since then, and I hope it remains this way.


Fish head curry with fried squid

People come here for the fish head curry, where a small portion feeds 2-3 people comfortably. I also like the fried squid as it is juicy, chewy and well spiced from the curry powder marinade. Good stuff!

Seafood Spaghetti with Garlic, Shallots & White Wine Parsley Sauce

Yeast offers French cuisine in an unfussy bistro ambiance – black and white tiled floor, gently lit dining room and paper-covered tables. Very laidback feel and hardly intimidating. The menu is confident and straightforward, dotted with classic French bistro fare featuring premium local ingredients.


Seared Foie Gras, Red Wine Braised Cabbage, Balsamic Reduction

While it may be a French bistro, portions are fortunately far from miniscule. The mains are good, especially when you order beef or seafood. Do call to make a reservation, as they usually don’t entertain walk-ins. At least that’s how I remember them to be.

Devi’s Corner


My regular order, with rice drowning in assorted curries!

I’ve been going to Devi’s Corner for banana leaf rice in Bangsar over the last 4 years when they first started. They serve a good Kerala fish curry and crab curry, which I love drowning my rice in. Try their mutton masala too — it’s pretty noteworthy.

  • Service can be quite inconsistent but if you’re willing to look past that, you will be rewarded with a hearty meal.

Brunch at Nutmeg

This place garnered a bit of debate between rif and myself. He likes the food there on both our brunch visits, while I wasn’t a convert the first time around. Admittedly, they do a good Southern Fried Breakfast which I often crave every now and then.

We also love the pan seared slow cooked chicken thigh, with mushroom cream sauce. That is rich, hearty and oh-so-sinful! Service was a miss on both our visits; so go there with that in mind and you won’t be disappointed.

Sun Huat Kee


Pork ball noodles, dry style

Sun Huat Kee is the newest of the three coffeeshops along the Lucky Garden row and offers the most comfortable dining environment. The place is more cooling (semi air-conditioned) and the layout is systematic and convenient. It also houses more selections of my favourite hawker dishes, like the pork ball noodles, curry laksa and freshly made pau.

It gets rather crowded during peak hours, so I recommend going before noon during weekends. Otherwise, wait for the lunch crowd to die down and head there around 1-ish. They usually close by 3pm.

KGB Bangsar


Bash (my regular order)

KGB (Killer Gourmet Burger) in Bangsar has become my favourite spot for burgers when the craving strikes. To me, the burgers have been fairly consistent in the last 2 years — the patty is made using fresh ground beef with just the right amount of fat so it remains juicy throughout.


Tornado, topped with egg and onion rings

Steven and Joey have since added new burgers to the menu, but my regular order remains — Bash. They also serve good Kimchi and Texas Jalapeno fries, so give those a try while you’re there!
