O Gourmet @ Bangsar Shopping Center


BSC's posh food hall is a cheerful space that's timed perfectly for this festive season. Stock your cupboards with imported chocolate, cheese, wine, salads, spices, sandwiches, as well as both halal and non-halal cold cuts.


One highlight is Bar Italia's gelato kiosk, which allows customers to sit on stools surrounding the counter while savouring some soft, smooth ice cream.


We shared sugary scoops of vanilla, stracciatella (choc & cream), tiramisu (mascarpone & coffee), white chocolate and gianduja (choc & hazelnut).


A Slice Of Heaven's outlet is the other popular attraction here; it's astonishing that they never run out of cakes for the steady stream of patrons.


The Blackforest Kirsch and Chocolate & Cheese were both top-notch, bursting with the fresh creaminess that we adore in our cakes.


O Gourmet,
Bangsar Shopping Centre.

  1. Was having dinner with Boo and Min. Boo said she just missed you in the afternoon. Seems like BSC seems to be a congregating centre for foodies after their transformation.

  10. hahaha The Paranoid Android's name in Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy was Marvin. His full name was Marvin the Paranoid Android. Hence the reference. ;-) Sorry for the confusion. ;-) Come try Mince Pies ;-)
