For those of you who haunt 1 Utama often, Oriental Cravings would be a familiar sight unless you haven’t being paying enough attention to your surroundings. 🙂
The shop is located at a rather quiet corner of the new wing but you should come across it when using one of the escalators.
I was feeling a bit hungry over the late afternoon and it so happens that Oriental Cravings has this RM 7.90 promotion that’s available from 3pm to 6pm on weekdays. *Long image below
OK, what better way to settle my stomach’s afternoon cry for attention by trying out something I haven’t try before.
I like what Oriental Cravings did by allocating the tables towards the outset of the shop as PRIORITY seats, meant for people with babies and such. It makes perfect sense, parents with children on strollers definitely would need more space.
As you can see from the image above, the tables are quite close to one another. This is definitely not the place for private conversations or business meeting, even an average coffee shop has much more room between tables.
Being a Char Koay Teow fan, I ordered the CKT set that comes with a free cup of tea. Here’s the CKT.
Did I enjoy the CKT? No, not at all. It doesn’t carry the aroma of those delicious street fried ones, the taste is overwhelmed by the rather sweet tasting black colored sauce. If anything, it feels more like hokkien mee than a CKT. Sure, it was rich in elements such as vegetables, bean sprouts and whatever else but I feel that none of it made it any better.
Well, that’s not to say the place is bad as a whole. Anyone who’s familiar with this place can tell you how packed the crowd is. 😀 What this article tells you is – stay away from CKT, order something else and share with us what you found tasty.
As for the service, it was prompt and I didn’t wait that long to get my food served, nor my bill to arrive (though one of the workers went MIA after I asked for a bill).
