The menu offering is quite diverse and customers must place their order at the cashier counter. Then, the waitstaff will be deliver your order to you after they have finished preparing it. While the ambiance feels very much like other coffee shops, the order system is similar like Old Town café, which requires payment in advance.

During our visit, the cashier was friendly and recommended us some specials from the café. However, I was more inclined to their three cheese macaroni. Hence, I ordered that item.

Pricing for beverage is not transparent. Only a single price is shown although the beverage comes in three sizes. This has created a negative experience for consumers as they often end up paying more when they decided to go for larger cup of coffee. Creativity is more than welcomed but there is no need to reinvent the wheel. If Starbucks and many orher coffee shops can be transparent with their pricing, why can’t you?

 

Restoran Murni Discovery, Bukit Jalil

Murni Discovery is a small restaurant chain based in Malaysia. They have a number of outlets around Klang Valley area and one of them is in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Check out their website here. However, there is not much information about the history of the restaurant chain or who are the people behind it.

The restaurant chain is best known for its wide selection of menus at a reasonable price (for Western Food and many other items) and mamak-like atmosphere. However, some patrons may find their pricing to be a bit expensive. Nevertheless, it still can give you great value for money.

Ordering at Murni Discovery

Ordering at Murni is easy, even for first-timers. As this is not a self-service outlet, you can expect their friendly team of waitstaff to attend to your needs. The waiters will take your order with a tablet at their hand, reducing the probability of an error occurring. Apart from that, their menu booklet is also nice to look at with pictures and price information clearly available.

 

Other Interesting Menu Items

Another great menu to try at their outlet is Chicken Chop. This is because with the reasonable price that you pay, you will get a generous portion of chicken chop together with several sides. Other than regular Chicken Chop, you can order Chicken Chop Special. It combines two boneless chicken pieces with cheese in between.

Our personal favorite would be Sizzling Mixed Grill. It has a combination of boneless chicken, beef as well as lamb (with bones). Do not be surprised as the Sizzling Mixed Grill, like other sizzling menu items, will arrive at your table piping hot. As you can see on the picture below, there were still a lot of smokes/vapors coming out of the pan!

Apart from Western menu items, Murni Discovery is also known for its Mee Raja (TripAdvisor, Azuanzahdi.com), Nasi Goreng

Bidor Station Kopitiam, Cheras

Bidor Station Kopitiam is a family-friendly restaurant located in Cheras. While the location looks a bit out of place, do not underestimate what is being served there. The restaurant offers an excellent lineup of scrumptious local cuisines alongside some Western cuisines.

When we talk about Malaysian cuisines, we don’t do justice to ourselves if we fail to mention nasi lemak. A variety of nasi lemak is available at the restaurant. However, our favorite menu is mee goreng mamak, which tastes better than many other mamak restaurants.

Kopitiam, Quizinn by Rasa, klia2

Kopitiam is one of the outlets at klia2’s food court. The price is reasonable and there are several breakfast combos for you to choose.

The one that I tried is Nasi Lemak with Iced Lemon Tea and it costed me RM 16.65, quite reasonable because of the huge piece of chicken. Regular Nasi Lemak costs less though.
