Traders Cafe @ MATRADE, Kuala Lumpur
Recently I had to visit an exhibition that was happening at MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre. It's such a very nice convention centre. Parking is ample and it is tucked in one corner of the city where traffic is minimal at most times. Amenities are great and when it comes to food options, there's only one place and that is Traders Cafe that is located on the East Wing of the building.
Teh O Ais @ RM 3.20
The cafe is very nicely designed and since it is located inside the building, it is fully air-conditioned. Food options are good. You get a variety of noodles, Malay style mixed rice and some Western dishes. Everyone is expected to queue in line at the counter, pick your food and drinks and pay for them. For those items that need preparation, it would be then sent over to your table once it is ready. After having gone through the items that was on offer, I decided to go for a plate of Roast Chicken along with some Teh O Ais. Teh O Ais was priced at RM 3.20 and it came in a tall glass. For a convention centre, I felt that the prices were reasonable. My rating for this drink shall be 8/10.
Roast Chicken @ RM 10.00
For RM 10.00, I was served a quarter Roast Chicken with Salad and Mashed Potatoes on the sides and this was topped with some gravy. Not forgetting the bowl of Mushroom Soup that came as part of the package. For a convention centre, RM 10.00 for this lot is definitely very reasonable. Many food courts out there charge more for the same.Taste wise, it was nice. A Malaysian way of preparing this dish and I am sure it would go well with most people's taste buds. If you happen to be at MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre, I would recommend trying this. My rating for this dish and the Mushroom Soup shall be 7/10.
