We can all agree that if Malaysians want to gather, they will do it over food. Be it brunch, tea or supper, for Malaysians a meet-up with loved ones is not complete without something delicious to munch on. With this in mind, we’ve put together an epic foodie list at Pavilion Bukit Jalil in conjunction with the Pavilion Taste campaign happening from now until 13 November.
Halal-Certified & Muslim-Friendly Haven
Pavilion Bukit Jalil is home to some great halal and Muslim-friendly choices (with over 40 options) that are perfect for everyone. Indulge in everyone’s favourite Kyochon 1991 for the best Korean fried chicken with a choice of red pepper or garlic flavours to choose from. Alternatively, shoppers can also head over to Kagura Ramen for a warm and hearty bowl of ramen with 6 speciality broths and various other rich broths to choose from!
Malaysians are no strangers to all-you-can-eat buffets and almost everyone knows and loves Suki-Ya. A crowd favourite, this restaurant offers a great all-you-can-eat hotpot special at an affordable price. There are four delectable soup bases that guests can choose from (shabu shabu, miso, sukiyaki, and kimuchi), but the best part? All their meats are free-flow as well!
For those looking for something beyond the usual hotpot, the newly opened BBQ Town serves up some mouth-watering all-you-can-eat barbeque. The buffet-style restaurant combines the flavours of a good barbeque with shabu-shabu and offers unlimited Australian beef, lamb, chicken and prawn, sushi, and vegetables. Guests can also enjoy the enhanced flavours of six-hour-long kombu chicken soup and complimentary fried chicken as starters to get those appetites going.
Similarly, MoMo Paradise (non-halal) is a foodie’s dream. What guests typically love about this restaurant is their free-flowing Australian beef and sakura pork, as well as the option to add on premium Australian Wagyu. The restaurant also features over 20 different types of fresh vegetables to pair with your meal, and their friendly staff is always ready to help guests create their own sauce or to assist with the cooking process.

For those looking for some hearty western fare is Arthur’s Storehouse with dishes and cocktails inspired by one of the world’s most famous stout brands. Aside from the regular Irish meals on offer, guests should try the special Guinness bak kut teh which is best paired with – you guessed it – a frothy pint of Guinness. Alternatively, Healy Mac’s Irish Restaurant and Bar is one that you don’t want to miss. The restaurant is known for their friendly staff, fun atmosphere and delicious delights. Their fish is coated with a crisp batter, seasoned to perfection and served with a healthy side of chips and a twist of lemon. Healy Mac’s also offers a unique green pea sauce as an alternative to the classic tartar sauce.
For the meat-eaters, the self-proclaimed “antidote for a carnivore”, Naughty Babe, Dirty Duck is a popular European fusion restaurant known for their pork and their duck – and guests cannot visit the restaurant without having the Naughty Babe Dirty Duck BBQ pork ribs. Lacquered with homemade barbecue sauce and grilled to perfection, the pork ribs are best accompanied by the restaurant’s homemade flaming hot chilli sauce.
For those looking for a spot to unwind, SOUL-ed Out is the perfect place for you to kick back with your friends on a Friday night. While they dish out some delicious food, it’s their appetisers and drinks that really shine. We suggest the cheese nachos and a signature mojito (known to be the best mojito in town) as the pairing is sure to kickstart a great time.

Everyone knows that fish is an important source of Omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential nutrients to keep our hearts and brains healthy. Xi Yu Restaurant uses the freshest ingredients to bring guests the most unique flavours of grilled fish. Those looking for something with more of a soup base and extra flavour should check out Siong Tong Gai is a Malaysian-born brand that specialises in its legendary 20-year-old steam fish recipe is one you don’t want to miss. If you’re feeling indulgent, give yourself a treat with their ‘steam three treasure’ that consists of patin fish, tiger prawns and clams, steamed to perfection and served in their superior broth.
Continuing on our seafood adventure, those who love steamboat, can get ready for a whole new steamboat experience. Xiangshan Fish Steamboat serves up a unique broth: simmered and boiled in wooden barrels, with hot stones, fish and green pepper amongst other ingredients, it delivers a burst of flavours that you’ll surely remember while Lee’s Signature Fish serves up some delicious high-quality and affordable sauerkraut fish.

Thirst Quenchers TO-GO
117 Coffee Bar
New kids on the coffee block, 117 Coffee Bar and JP & CO is already the go-to for speciality coffee. Brewing from 10am to 10pm daily, 117 Coffee Bar puts a unique spin on classic coffee favourites. From their lemon twist brew to their sparkling Americano, the coffee offerings are a delightful departure from the usual iced lattes. JP & CO on the other hand serves up some strong coffee for the days when you need to be highly productive and strongly caffeinated.
If you’re looking for something a little less caffeinated, Yogurt Cow’s ice-blended yoghurt drinks are the way to go with plenty of zesty options, including the busy mango, grapey grape, and smashy strawberry. Purple rice and mango & pomelo are two other must-try crowd favourites.
