Bangkung Row

Turning into Jalan Bangkung, off Jalan Maarof at the Jeumpa D'ramo traffic light junction (a landmark for those familiar with the early days of Bijou Bazaar), just up the road you'll see a row of shophouses perched on your left called Bangkung Row. A hidden jewel, Bangkung Row feels rather secluded, it's like a tucked away sanctuary, albeit just off the busy main road.

Bangkung Row houses a group of restaurants, namely Cava, Opus Bistro, Leonardo's Dining Room & Wine Loft (serves non-halal meat), and their latest addition Four Seas Seafood Grill. During my short interaction with the restaurants, they even lived up to their reputation as having the most obliging and enthusiastic service crew in KL. Well it was only my third visit, yet they surprised me by serving me warm water, when everyone else were served iced water. They remembered that I don't take iced water!

Trivial, but it was just the thing that will seperate them from the rest. Patrons will be impressed with the level of attention that they receive.

A rare gem in Kuala Lumpur, I must say.

Why were we at Bangkung Row?

Yes, yes, getting there. :op

It was actually the Bangkung Row, which mooted the idea for a Malaysia Day Street Festival this Thursday, 16 September 2010. We were only happy to be part of the event, a collaboration with 18 NGOs. There will be Bijou Bazaar vendors on the street with art installations and stage performances. The restaurants will also host mini events by the participating NGOs.

Make a date with us?

Have a great Aidilfitri everyone. :o)
