Petit Sucre

Slaves to sugar should be set free to frolic in KLCC's Isetan FoodMarket, where independent stalls have started selling Japanese & French-themed desserts.

The highlight could be Petit Sucre, an offshoot of Levain Boulangerie. The piece de resistance here is the Ouef Brulee, one of the most gorgeously packaged desserts we've seen this year. Essentially soft, smooth creme brulee in an "egg shell" made of thick glass.

Another worthwhile kiosk: Bites Quickie by Bites Factory, specializing in tiny treats for folks who want to avoid over-indulging. Its unique creations include the Twisted Mille Crepe (rolled crepe with raspberry jam & creme patisserie) & Mont Midori (pureed sweet potato & whipped cream set on a sponge cake).

Kids might be drawn to Milkkan's booth for a freshly made Japanese crepe, filled with kiwifruit & chocolate cream and served in a cardboard cone for convenient snacking.

Also from Milkkan: green tea & passion fruit soft-serve ice cream. Both seemed rather healthy, reminiscent of frozen yogurt, with natural-tasting flavors & not much sugar.

  1. I like Bites Quickie's offerings & packaging (the grump buster pack!). Their icon, the cat is so darn cute. Seems they're the owners of Sumo at Mt Kiara Shoplex.

    Did you try the Okonomiyaki? It is extremely light and fluffy. Other favs for me were the marinated mushrooms from the salad to go bar. Wasn't a fan of the pumpkin salad. There's also kimchi tortillas at the Korean counter.

  2. boo: wow, that's an interesting choice for business diversification, from a cool watering hole in mont kiara to a cool desserts counter in klcc! ya, the grump buster cake was deliciously gooey and chocolatey (though i had trouble opening the packet due to its staples!) :D i loved the okonomiyaki too, it seemed perfect. so creamy and flavorful. i haven't managed to try the salad and korean booths though. maybe next week! :D

  3. OMG.. I'm loving KLCC already! Finally Pavilion w Tokyo St & all the new ones like watami, morganfields etc and now KLCC - used to be the worse plc to eat, now with the most interesting options! Notice hw both were similar - Jap inspired?

  4. rebecca: yeah, it looks like shoppers in KL can't get enough of japanese food! (i'm just glad it's not thai food, heheh) i guess pavilion is still far ahead of klcc in terms of dining options, but it's nice to see that klcc is not a lost cause! :D

  6. Ulric: one thing I can say for sure: the okonomiyaki here is better than Watami's! Though it's a bit pricier too (about RM18, if I recall right) =)

  8. Baby sumo: yeps, there are four or five different kinds of fruits. Though strangely, the only other one I can remember right now is strawberry. Kiwi was the clear personal favorite for me :D

  9. It's been so long since I last visited KLCC, I have no recollection where Isetan even is.
    Pathetic huh? True enough, KLCC's been suffering a lack of good eateries. Last I had a meal was at Aseana, an off-beat cafe but was not too good. Read Boo's tweet on Grump Buster, thus interest was piqued.

  10. J2kfm: oh, no worries, there's really not much reason to visit KLCC if it's not in your neighborhood. For me, it's just the closest mall to my office. I think the best restaurant here is Chinoz on the Park, but that has been around for a decade, with minimal competition on klcc's fine-dining front =)
