Jasons Food Hall @ BSC

Replacing Cold Storage and O Gourmet at Bangsar Shopping Center, this upmarket supermarket seems to be a cousin of Market Place by Jasons _ related in some fashion to Cold Storage _ which has branches in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.

No shocks within this cheerfully sleek space; Jasons stocks the essentials, from crustaceans ...

... to cheese ...

... to chocolate. Not as big as Ben's Independent Grocer, but as comprehensive as Cold Storage.

A highlight here: sumptuously creamy handmade chocolates by the KL-based confectionery of chef Matthias Schuebel, a Culinary Olympics pastry gold medalist.

Fun and flavorsome combos like caramel and Szechuan pepper or vanilla and ginger root, alongside dark, milk and white varieties stuffed with apricot, rose essence and spices. Outrageously expensive? Nope; this mix of 10 pieces cost about RM25.

Continuing our chocolate theme, imported cookies by the UK's Fox's company. Milky and crisp.

Too many temptations; we restrained ourselves and escaped before buying much more.
