Pappa Rich@The Gardens Mall

I am going back to study after so many years. Last weekend after class, we went to Mid Valley for some shopping and of course, makan.
I have been wanted to try Pappa Rich for quite some time, especially the newly open one in Ipoh, but didn't get a chance. So, we decided to try at Gardens.
The place was quite crowded, but while we were waiting for seat, we saw some left over food on the table, which indirectly tells us that the food is not so good ya. Anyway, I heard a lot of positive comment about this place, so I would like to check it out myself.

We ordered one cup of hot white coffee and one ice honey lemon, generally, the drinks are quite good, especially compared to Old Town Kopitiam.



I ordered koay teow dry curry@ RM10.90. It was such a disappointment! The dry sauce is not enough for the noodles, I admit I cannot take heavy and rich food, but this was too bland, and curry doesn't taste good at all! I think this dish really failed!


The nasi lemak looks good and taste ok. RM9.90 is quite reasonable. However, we had a bad time after that..it was full of MSG and whole night we were so thirsty. Will never go for it anymore! In fact, Old Town Kopitiam's nasi lemak is much better haha!

No next time!

Last but not least, the butter kaya bread, taste ok esp the kaya....nothing much to shout at!


Our Pappa Rich experience was it's just another fancy restaurant. We dislike the MSG part, but don't mind going for a drink next time, but definitely not for food!

oui babies, for that price, ambience you expect outstanding food? wrong place. for that price and that ambience pappa rich food is good value for money. there are rentals and tonnes of other costs to be paid for all the conveniences we all get. without entrepreneurs coming out to do all that we all will be eating by the road side or hot places. I am not associated with Pappa rich. is just that I need to point out some points to you.
