Folks who dare to walk deeper into Plaza Mont Kiara & scour the basement at the back of this complex will be rewarded with meals at a couple of no-frills, pork-loving Asian eateries: Thai specialist Bowl & Thai, alongside Korean outlet Lemon Terrace.
First up, Bowl & Thai, which serves simple fare at satisfactory prices.
Tender, meaty stewed pork with egg & rice (RM9). Soul food, comfort food.
Kerabu sotong (RM7), piquant enough to please. Other offerings include mango salads, tom yum goong & pineapple fried rice.
Also possibly worth inspecting here: the Korean-run Lemon Terrace.
Lemon Terrace's interpretation of 'manduguk' (RM15), reasonably juicy pork dumplings in a savoury, steaming-hot broth.
The serving comes with three 'banchan' side dishes. Lemon Terrace's menu is fairly wide, ranging from ginseng chicken soup (RM22) to 'sujebi' hand-torn noodle broth (RM13).
