The Filling Station is fuelled by a cool concept - a full-fledged cafe with a surprisingly ambitious menu inside a petrol station. You can customise your own platters of rice, pasta or salad here, mixing & matching multiple bases, toppings & drizzles - we had nasi lemak with lamb curry (RM15.90), spaghetti aglio olio with shrimp, zucchini noodles & broccoli (RM21.90) & organic quinoa tabbouleh with poached eggs, grilled sweet potatoes, tempeh & a lime-cilantro hummus-inspired dressing (RM20.90). The caveat of this quick-service fix is that some ingredients may have been prepared too far in advance to taste satisfyingly fresh, & there might be a lack of cohesive flavours in certain combinations; the seasonings & sauces also tasted off-balance for our pasta & quinoa. There's space for fine-tuning, though on the bright side, the service team is genuinely warm & efficient. The Filling Station has plenty of potential, & we hope to see it pop up in more Shell station locations in the months to come.
