Whenever someone says Subang, I can’t help but wince at the thought of the narrow lanes and competitive parking. It is a sore sight to the eyes but on a positive note, it is also a pretty strong indicator that the place is loaded with good food. The tip is to follow the herd.
Oh, before you go there, keep in mind that you may be overwhelmed by all the choices you can find. Decisions, decisions… If you’re an indecisive person like me and need to spin the wheel to decide what to get for lunch, there’s no need to go through that hassle now. We’ve curated 6 MUST-eat dishes here in Subang — 6 days of lunch covered!
Think you’ve tried EVERY restaurant on the list? Then, how about the one shielded behind the popular coconut ice cream parlour – Sangkaya? If reading this makes you scratch your head, there’s a high chance that you’ve never been to Jibril’s lounge.
Stepping inside the restaurant is like being transported into a 1920s retro bar but don’t expect to find alcohol here. The closest resemblance to booze you can get are fancy mocktails named after famous people in history. There’s even one called Newton — a drink to boost your brain cells before the chemistry test, perhaps?
When it comes to mains, many swear by their salted egg butter chicken rice. Not something you’ll expect to find in a speakeasy environment but they’re so good that they even have sets for two or four people. Golden crisp chicken drenched in buttery salted egg sauce, what more could one ask for?
