Boxes @ BBCC, Bukit Bintang City Centre

This shipping container cafe could prove a popular lure for photography fiends at Bukit Bintang City Centre's sales gallery - colourful on the outside & comfortably cheery within, Boxes is something of a pop-up venue that staff members say may merely run for several months; for this current fortnight, it's set in a scene meant to evoke Japan's cherry blossom season.

The cafe's selection might entice fans of fusion fare - think assam pedas steak sandwiches, ayam percik burgers & prawn curry linguine carbonara. Boxes' nasi lemak maki (RM10.90) is tasty enough to pass muster as both nasi lemak & sushi roll.

  1. Shoot, this means I've not ventured into the city center for a long time. =/

    There's nothing like cherry blossom, sushi and maneki-neko (Japanese cat) to evoke the aura of being in a Japanese area. *winks*

    1. Ciana: heheh, it could have turned into a tacky hodgepodge of weirdness, but it all ended up working quite well together, so kudos to the folks here ;)

  2. These containers are so pretty, makes me think of Christchurch actually.

    1. CK: ooo, that's true - there's even a container shopping mall in christchurch ;)

    2. there one in Seoul too =P

  3. So nicely done. They have different cuisines in different containers? What if I want ice kacang with my sushi? I know some people actually live in those in some countries...and I saw in one uni in the UK, they converted them into lecture rooms - they did not have enough.

    1. Suituapui: ooo, all the containers belong to the same cafe, so the menu is the same, but you're in luck - you can certainly order ais kacang to accompany your sushi! :) i think as long as the containers are spacious enough and don't feel too stuffy (luckily, they are quite well air-conditioned here), they can be pretty cosy! :)

  4. Amazing! This must be *very* new - I've never even heard of BBCC before. I like the concept of pop-up container cafes that only operates for a limited time though. I'll go and check it out too! :)

    1. Huai Bin: oh yeah, the cafe just opened this month, and BBCC itself will only be up and running in a few years - it's just the sales gallery now, which will eventually be torn down to make way for the rest of the development, so yeah, schedule a visit sometime this year :)

  5. The pics tell it all.
    I could feel the nice vibe of the place! Sunny, airy but potentially toasty hot in this weather.
    Still, i love the colors! And nasi lemak sushi/maki? with thick sambal over it?
    Count me in! HAHAHA

    1. Rebecca: yeah, this place has a happy feel to it - i was worried it'd be warm too, but they've turned the air-conditioner up inside, so it's almost as cold as a cinema hall in the cafe, heh :D the cafe also serves regular nasi lemak, so the ingredients are almost the same (except for the seaweed wrap, heh), and yup, the sambal is not bad - quite spicy in fact! :)

  6. Where can i park though?

    1. Rebecca: i uber-ed here, but supposedly there's parking in an open-air lot slightly after the sales gallery (drive past the sales gallery, on the same road as berjaya times square, and watch for a turning to the lot on your left) ... i don't know how big the parking lot is though! alternatively, park at berjaya times square ... or take the lrt/monorail to the hang tuah station ...

  7. What're the opening and closing hours?
