Proxy's Kitchen, The Gravy Factory & Uppercrust Diner

Eateries on the move: When we first visited Proxy's Kitchen some time back, it was in Sri Hartamas' Plaza Damas (now it's in Shah Alam's Section 7). As seen here, the Hartamas outlet spotlighted a decor infused with pop-culture flourishes & a menu with personality, leaping from Laksa Johor to a 'Lambretta' of lamb chops with garlicky mashed potatoes & peas, plus a memorable East-West concoction of 'Masak Lemak' Pasta with spicy smoked beef (daging salai) in turmeric cream sauce.

The Gravy Factory was in Empire Damansara when we stopped by for a lunch of the house recommendation - Hainanese-style chicken chop - with an option of a 'Groovy Gravy' (we chose Pineapple Sweet N Sour over Black Pepper, Garlic Mushroom, Caesar, Tartare, Thousand Island & Mango Mayo). Since then, it's shifted to the Nu Sentral shopping mall.

Uppercrust is relocating from the Dataran Prima venue where it has spent the past two years serving spicy prawn pastas topped with fried eggs & salmon sandwiches built with house-baked bread. For now, we have no clue where it will end up next.

  1. Location is such a crucial factor it seems in the success of a restaurant. Rents in KL are certainly not bargains these days.

    1. The Yum List: true, there are many outlet owners who are forced to choose the upper floor of a shop-house instead of the ground floor for their location, for example, since rental is more exorbitant on the ground floor ...

  2. Love the look of the dishes at Proxy's. Masak Lemak Pasta with spicy salai beef in turmeric cream sauce sure sounds exciting.
