|Chicken rice from Mid Valley Megamall food court, Kuala Lumpur|
This was at Mid Valley Megamall, a behemoth shopping centre near Bangsar, where the food court is a lot like a hawker centre with tonnes of individual store fronts, each selling a different type of food - think chicken rice, laksa, yong tofu, hotplate, nasi kandar - under a united front; that is, signage and uniforms.

The grilled aroma came through the spicy and sour sauce nicely, enhanced with a squeeze of green kumquat and just a touch of the garlicky green chilli dipping sauce.

This version had the oddest topping over the ice – what seemed like a thick gula melaka, palm sugar syrup, that had hardened to a toffee-like state and which lifted off the top in one solid piece.

The side salad garnish was also appreciated as I found my ordering of food in Malaysia involved little in the way of vegetables. After caffeine and a quick meal, we were ready to face the bus station.
