Something closer to Chinese flavours is the Biang Biang Inspired Noodle (RM18) that reminds me of spicy pan mee. A simple yet extravagantly flavoured dish loaded with Szechuan chilli oil and toasted peanuts which is the epitome of soul food for me.
From the lunch menu, we highly recommend the Cured Fish Rice (RM30). A hearty, well-balanced bowl of goodness, we especially enjoyed the firm lightly pan-seared cured local mackerel, served on rice with a beautiful ajitama egg, scallion ginger sauce and herb butter.
Verdict: The food is delicious and challenging with complex flavours in fusion of western and chinese influences. Reasonable pricing but small portion
Bang Bang Chicken , 22 ringgit. This dish was not on the menu the first time I visited. Glad I ordered it this time because it was delicious. This dish consisted of shredded chicken + cabbage + glass noodle + chinese rice wine + housemade chili oil. The only downside to this dish was that the glass noodle came in a really small portion, by small I mean – I literally took a fork full of noodles to transfer it onto my plate and there isnt any left. Just one fork full, no joke. That was the only bummer. The minute this dish arrived at my table, I was salivating. The shredded chicken was packed with flavor and spices. It totally had an oriental feel to it. There is a certain kick to it. You keep going in for more. It is worth giving this dish a try guys.
a place to relax and unwind with local and fusion foods.
Bringing people together through the simple act of sitting and sharing a drink or two (or three).
Reasons to visit: A welcoming, cozy atmosphere that is great for gatherings of family and friends. Contemporary Malaysian cuisine that is made for sharing and features fresh, local produce that showcases all that’s great about this country and its food. Everything we ate in this meal was delicious but if you can only order a couple of things don’t miss the Mushroom Frittata, Duck Rendang Hummus and Cured Mackerel.
Verdict: The setting and ambience are really captivating, making it one if the best historic jewels in Petaling Street. For Instagram enthusiast, I’m sure your followers will certainly drool over your double-tap worthy food photos of this cafe. Food taste wise, overall was a satisfying meal but some of the dishes were a bit over-seasoned with salt.
Cho Cha in Mandarin means back to basic for Cho and Cha means tea. When I first saw this cafe in Instagram, I was attracted to it old classic wood deco in the cafe. It was definitely an Instagram worthy cafe to drop by in KL. Overall ambiance was really up to my liking. Fusion and Creative dining experience, with back to 80's memory in the cafe. I will definitely back here again to eat again their Crispy Chili Squid.
One day, my friend/co worker asked me whether or not I would like to go with her to Petaling Street for lunch as she was meeting her friends who work near there so I said ok without knowing the name of our lunch place. The place turns out to be Cho Cha Foodstore at 156, Petaling Street. Cho Cha in Cantonese means "坐茶" - sit and drink tea. We parked at an open car park nearby which charges MYR4 for each hour with a max parking rate of MYR10 nett per entry.
They are not pretentious with ingredients and uses some of the ingredients that represented the locals pretty well so you’d also see some familiar ingredients like kailan. Apart from slightly salty, what seemed to appear a little cloying looking is actually not at all a disaster; in contrary, this creamy stir fried kailan was uniquely enjoyable.
我们这次来的时候是喝茶时段，店里顾客很多、很热闹。我们离开时（大概傍晚五点多）顾客少了，环境就变得更宁静舒适了，感觉还是挺不错的。这里的食物不便宜，但都是以本地古早味改良的特色餐点，也算值得一试；而且这里的布置和环境真的很适合爱拍照的人来拍一拍。 问我会不会特地在此前往 Chocha Foodstore？ 应该不会刻意前往，但如果正好在附近，我还是会考虑去光顾的。
As for the food, it might be too “modern” for me but they sure do have great ambiance. Maybe I will look forward for their upcoming bar. Food Rating 6.5/10, food is alright, great ambiance-Stamped-
Reasons to visit: Beautiful setting, and plenty of photogenic spots during the day; Ulam Stew Barley Rice; Duck Rice; Ulam Raja Crème Brûlée; it’s not just a place for eating and mingling, but potentially a place for work and learning once the team sets up their planned concepts.
Chocha Foodstore (just like Merchant’s Lane next door) is one of those: a beautiful place where you can nourish both your tummy and soul. We tried the flat ulam pesto noodles, mango salad and duck with barley rice – all were delicious and beautifully presented. To accompany all this lovely food we sipped the house-brewed cold tea and admired the pretty courtyard surrounded by fragrant herbs.chocha-chinese-noodles-pesto
