Mayflower Food Court
Posted by: Wen Ching In: Malaysian Food
One of us used to work in the 1 Sentral area, which was how we got to know about Mayflower Food Court as it was a rather preferable choice for lunch. Even from time to time, we visit this place for lunch during weekends.
Due to the popularity of this place, it is usually very crowded during lunchtime. The ground floor will usually be full and the better option is to sit upstairs instead. This post is a combination of the food that we have tried there so far.
One of the most well known stalls here was Peter’s Pork Noodles, which we’re sure many of you would have heard of. We ordered a small bowl of Chu Yuk Fun (Pork Noodles) which was priced at RM4.50. We tasted the soup and loved it. The broth was incredibly delicious sweetened by pork, tong choy (preserved vegetables) and spring onions. Served with marinated minced pork, pork slices and pork liver and eaten with Cili Padi (bird’s eye chilli), the dish won our vote.
We also tried Uncle Lim’s Char Koay Teow once. Priced at RM4.50 for a small plate of noodles, we found this Char Koay Teow quite good but nothing extraordinary. It was cooked with the right amount of Wok Hei and spiciness, however, our current favourite still belongs to O & S Restaurant’s Char Koay Teow.
Even though there are a lot of good food sold in Mayflower, our main reason of visiting this food court is because of this Western stall selling pastas. Even though we hardly have Western food in hawker places, this place was an exception. Ever since we tried it once, we’ve been going back for more.
Priced at RM10 for the Spaghetti with Chicken Chop in Mushroom Sauce, the pasta dish was extremely delicious! It was unique mainly because it was cooked in a different style. Tossed in a wok with a Chinese cooking method, the spaghetti was strongly coated with Wok Hei and the tomato sauce added more flavour to it. The Chicken Chop was very good as well, as the serving was generous and the meat was lean and juicy.
On other visits, we also had Moorthy’s Mathai banana leaf rice which did not disappoint as well. Overall this food court serves very good quality food for lunch, do check it out if you’re in the neighbourhood!
