Buttermilk dishes are their best sellers. Starting with the buttermilk percik beef or chicken and buttermilk pasta.

The key ingredient is none other than a creamy buttermilk sauce that enhances the flavor of food. And if you need more sauce, request a refill.

As for desserts, the kaya stick has a rich, aromatic pandan (screwpine) filling. While the hot chocolate stick is another treat – it is like eating mochi with rich chocolate.

With a calming ambiance where good food meets refreshing cocktails:

Their intriguing menu features meaty chops, shanks, local delights, and cocktails. As well as healthy yogurt blends.

Furthermore:

Curry mee, nasi lemak with siew yuk berempah (spiced, roasted pork belly), and kam heong lala are also on the menu.

Top on this list is their signature pork shank. This is juicy and tender and pairs well with the house red wine. Meanwhile, the grilled lamb chop earns approval with its flavorful marinade.

There’s a wide variety of tapas to try as you sip on cocktails before the mains arrive too.

The Thai Fried Crabstick and humble edamame are other snacks you can order besides tapas. Especially during peak hours when the crowd swells to the brim!

3. K Fry Urban Korean Setia City Mall

K Fry Urban Korean draws a close resemblance to KyoChon. Though the former offers a more varied menu adapted to suit the local taste buds.

This fast-food Korean restaurant is famous for its crispy pineapple chicken wings. They are crunchy on the outside, yet tender on the inside.

And if you like your chicken with a drizzle of sauce:

Go for the fried chicken wings in garlic soya sauce, butter, or spicy yangnyeom Korean sauce.

Don’t forget to snack on their delicious croffles too. The mango and strawberry croffle features a generous scoop of ice cream. The topping is large slices of fruits and copious amounts of sweet sauce to make it a satisfying dessert.

Or, cool down over a refreshing retreat of strawberry or mango bingsu (shaved ice dessert).

Because the food here is delish, you’ll have to put up with a full crowd during peak hours. And blaring KPop music that make regular conversations rather inaudible.

4. SOI 55 THAI KITCHEN (SETIA ALAM)

SOI 55 Thai Kitchen is one of the best places to savor the spices of Thai food in Setia Alam.

This renowned Thai restaurant franchise offers indoor dining options. The extra seating areas along the walkway are great for people watching.

Nothing beats a nourishing bowl of Korean beef broth or a good BBQ grill.

, and E-C-NE Korean BBQ and Hotpot Restaurant is one of the best places to get authentic Korean food at Setia Alam.

The restaurant is run by true-blue Korean natives. On another note, the ventilation system is great. As the whole place remains odorless despite BBQ action on almost every table.

But while the kimchi leans towards a drier and spicier continuum:

The Kimchi Pancake (along with the Thai vege pancake) is amazing!

Those in groups should give the pork BBQ set a go. The set comes with pancake, ramen in Kimchi soup. Plus chunky pieces of pork belly (the pork parts are tasty even without any marinade).

Try the well-balanced soju that is so smooth, you may lose count of how many glasses you have already drunk!

7. Taste Of Pakistan

Taste of Pakistan serves tantalizing Cheese Naan filled with good-grade mozzarella cheese. The naan is oven-cooked over charcoal, and coated with butter for a shiny sheen.  

Other favorites here are the lamb biryani and chicken karahi (chicken cutlets). Both dishes are full of aromatic spices.

8. Restoran Cik Tri Sahara Kambing Bakar (Setia Alam)

This casual diner invests in technology to ramp up its service. While also trimming down on waiting time:

Place your order through a touch screen, and pay for your food like at McDonald’s. Robot waiters will deliver your orders to your table. This ensures super-fast service even when there is a full house.

Try the keli penyet (grilled, flattened catfish) and kambing bakar (grilled lamb). Both dishes are great. The accompanying sambal packs a fiery punch with loads of spice that bring out the flavors of the meat.

And if the heat from the chili is overwhelming:

Head back to the touch screen and custom-order your beverage according to how sweet you want it to be.

Kurang manis (less sugar) or manis biasa (sweet as normal) are some of the available options.

10. Galbi King Olban
